5 Discoveries Which Help Keep Work-From-Home Easy For Me

With everything happening in the world, there is still a lot of uncertainty going around. But everyone needs to take care of their home and overall living situation, even if you are not working from home. Here are 5 recent discoveries of mine — all of which immediately available for ordering through Amazon and/or other websites, which help make my work-from-home existence easier in some form.


SmashUps are highly-personalized, smile-inducing, shareable videos which aim to entertain, surprise and/or delight audiences of all ages. The e-cards feature award-winning artists like Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Donny Osmond, Kevin Nealon, The Naked Cowboy and William Shatner.


As seen on TikTok, TeeTurle reversible plushies are original, patented plush toys that help express a user’s moods without saying a word. Check out the embedded post above to see what I mean.


As seen on Shark Tank, SeedSheet is a customizable roll-out garden perfect growing cocktail ingredients and toppers. Thanks to SeedSheet, you can choose from over 80 fast-growing vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruits, complete with customizable growing environments. The Vermont-based company essentially facilitates “Farm Delivery” for gardeners of any skill level, technically making it possible for an apartment-based novice gardener to start growing plants at home.

A Bar Above

Started in 2013 as an educational website, A Bar Above quickly became an educational resource for the bar industry, launching premium barware in 2016. Frustrated with poor-quality tools that would often rust and break behind a high-volume bar, founders Chris and Julia partnered with a factory and the rest is history. A Bar Above makes premium (and often visually-striking) bar tools, inclusive of gorgeous crystal-clear mixing glasses, extra-long wood and plastic muddlers that prevent bruised knuckles when muddling that mint, bar spoons, both long and short, elegant cocktail picks, and more–including a 14-piece Complete Bar Set, and a 10-Piece Stirred Bar Set. For bar-beginners who still aim to make top-notch cocktails, the A Bar Above 4-Piece Kit includes the 3 tools you need to make most common cocktails: a trusty 2-piece Boston shaker, a Hawthorne cocktail strainer and a 2-sided jigger.

EarPeace Ear Plugs

EarPeace’s sleep-oriented earplugs are designed to bring maximum comfort while gently-lowering background noise, making rest easy. The brand’s Music Pro earplugs include “PRO ultra-fi filter technology,” as inclusive of a tuned acoustic membrane which helps replicate a sound signature at a safe volume. I utilized EarPeace products while attending this month’s Jason Aldean concert.
