    31 Splurge-Worthy Products You'll Actually Use All The Time

    Spend some money to save some money.

    1. A smart thermostat that'll help keep the temperature balanced in your apartment. It'll connect directly to your phone, meaning you can control it from anywhere. It's even compatible with Alexa, so you can talk to it instead of pressing buttons.

    2. A portable colour sensor that'll help you figure out exactly what shade everything inside (and outside!) your home is. You can pair it with a free app that'll help you match colours with top paint brands, so you'll never have to use swatches again.

    4. A new set of sheets that you can cozy up in when the day is done. They're made of super-soft cotton, so if you hate that crispy sheet feel, these will be right up your alley.

    5. A Vitamix blender that can crush through ice, nuts, and just about anything else in mere seconds. You can adjust the speed with a flick of the dial, so whether you want to whip up chunky salsa or purée smooth nut milks, you'll be able to tackle your task with ease.

    6. A fancy-schmancy Theragun Prime, because your muscles are getting sore, but you're too broke to see an RMT every single week. It comes with four different massage heads that'll help you get into every knot, so you can really customize your massage.

    7. A smartphone-controlled Ember mug that'll help keep your drink warm with the help of a free app. Now you won't be stuck sipping on tepid tea or coffee halfway through the day.

    10. A Schwinn stationary bike that'll save you from spending all your hard-earned money on spin classes (it me). It's designed to work with Peloton and Zwift apps, so you can get the benefit of in-person training seshes without paying costly gym fees.

    13. An eight-quart Instant Pot Duo Crisp, a genius appliance that'll replace everything from your slow cooker to your air fryer and generally make cooking massive meals a breeze. It'll also save you some valuable counter real estate, which is always a plus.

    16. An Endy weighted blanket that'll help you sleep like a baby (and keep you warm, too). I have one of these and it's helped with my insomnia and anxiety, making it totally worth the investment.

    17. A cushy yoga mat that's super grippy, so you won't slide around when transitioning from a plank to a downward dog. It's designed to stop sweat from pooling up, meaning you won't be stuck working out in a puddle.

    20. This foam mattress topper, if you want to upgrade the bed you already have, instead of splurging on a whole new sleeping situation. It's packed with temperature-regulating gel beads that'll keep you from overheating in the middle of the night.

    21. A Kobo eReader, so you can download your reading material, instead of filling your tiny room with a ton of books. Not only is this a more eco-friendly option than a paperback, but if you have a hard time making out words, it’ll let you magnify the font and change the boldness of the text.

    22. A cordless Waterpik that's less bulky than the original and more effective than regular floss. It'll use H2O to blast away gross stuff between your teeth and below your gum line, leaving you with a seriously clean mouth. Now you can space out those pricey cleanings at your dentist!

    24. A chic bar cart that'll help keep your boozy beverages, highball glasses, and shakers from taking up valuable counter real estate in your kitchen. It has wheels, so you can easily push it into your living room or backyard when you're entertaining.

    25. A light-up Ring security camera that'll hook up to your smartphone and computer, so you always know what's happening inside and outside your house. It has two-way audio, meaning you can kindly ask your delivery person to leave your packages at your door.

    26. A bestselling espresso machine, if coffee pods just ain't strong enough for you. Not only will it help you whip up a killer caffeinated beverage, but it has a built-in grinder so you can pulverize your beans right before getting down to business.

    27. A cordless vacuum that'll help you suck all the gross stuff out of your couch and carpets. You can easily unclip the long hose and turn it into a handheld dustbuster when you want to clean your furniture.

    28. This deluxe garage organizer that has room for over 40 tools, meaning you'll have space for everything from your brooms to your snow shovels. It's equipped with wheels, so you can easily move it around when you're ready to tackle your chores.

    29. A bread maker, because making your own loaves will save you some serious dough (lol, get it?) and trips to the bakery. You can even delay baking time, so you can wake up to freshly-baked bread in the morning or come home to a piping-hot loaf after running errands.

    30. A standing desk riser that'll easily adjust to keep your computer at eye level, whether you're seated or standing. It's large enough to fit a laptop and two monitors, and has a dropped tray for your keyboard and mouse.
