The Best Mops — The Best List

On the list of most tedious household chores, mopping ranks pretty high. You have to clear the area of any obstacles, sweep beforehand and get a proper amount of water and cleaner ready to roll. It’s a necessary task, and in the grand scheme of things isn’t a big deal, but it’s not the most fun thing to do on a Saturday afternoon. Things have changed in the past few years though—no longer dependent on a bucket and string mop, we have a ton of different mop styles to choose from, each with their own list of pros and cons. To help you make a clean break from your old mop, we rounded up our list of favorites, from the classic spin mop to the newer robot mop.

The Best Wireless Bluetooth Headphones — The Best List

Safe to say, Bluetooth headphones are pretty much standard for everyday listening right now. Whether you’re commuting with a podcast, exercising with a playlist, or just trying to make a phone call, it’s easy to enjoy the physical flexibility of wireless headphones. If you’re an iPhone user, your device doesn’t even have a headphone jack anymore (quelle horreur!), so wireless is really your only option these days.

The Best Lunch Boxes — The Best List 2018

Did you know that you can easily spend over $2,000 a year buying lunch out each day? Making your own lunch and packing it in a reusable box is therefore not only better for you, it’s more sustainable for the earth AND might help you save up for that vacation you’ve been dreaming of.

Nowadays there’s a lunch box or bag for every type of person, whether you’re a super organized meal prepper or a last-minute, throw-it-in-a-bag type. Bento boxes are great for keeping portions in control and minimizing waste, since you can place your food directly in their own compartments without worrying about Ziploc bags and tin foil. Bags, on the other hand, offer a bit more flexibility and can hold more of your lunch, including extra snacks and a drink. No matter what your style is, we’ve rounded up our list of favorites below.

And don’t forget to tell us your favorite in the comments.

The Best Closet Systems — The Best List 2018

The average closet, if you’re lucky enough to have one, is typically uninspired: a few rods, maybe a shelf, and space for a few pairs of shoes. It works, but it leaves much to be desired in terms of storage and organization. A great solution to making the most out of any closet space is investing in a closet system that will carve out a spot for all your clothes and accessories. You might associate these systems with walk-in closets or larger reach-ins (like I did), but the truth is that there’s a system out there for anyone and any space. All of our favorites included in this list are easily customizable and even changeable, so your closet can grow with you as your needs change.
