Creating a space that I love has been essential to living a balanced life. When I decorated my apartment I wanted to make sure that it reflected my style and created a comfy haven for me and Blue. Over the past few years, I’ve realized that keeping a clean, organized, and functional space is essential to living a healthy, centered life. Cleaning and organizing don’t always come naturally to me. Honestly, who wants to vacuum in their spare time?
Luckily, Amazon has been a total lifesaver and has helped me find functional items for my home. I used to dread trips to the store to buy apartment supplies. I’m not exaggerating when I say that these products literally made my life easier. Best of all, all of these products are under $55. If you’re moving into your first apartment or looking to upgrade your products, I can’t recommend these enough!
Here are my favorite Amazon Home finds:
I’m the type of person who could fall asleep anywhere – couch, car, you name it. But recently I was experiencing such severe neck pain that I decided to invest in pillows that really supported my neck and head. This pillow has been a game-changer for my nights and even my naps! Sleeping on a pillow that supports my spine has helped me sleep so much better. I also love this pillow because the gel keeps it cooler than other memory foam pillows. No more waking up sweaty, and no more flipping the pillow to find the cooler side!
I spend a lot of time on my phone or computer, which can cause headaches and eyestrain. I didn’t realize how well blue light blocking glasses worked until I tried them for myself! These metallic cat eye glasses from SOJOS just LOOK SO GOOD. No matter your face shape or skin tone, these glasses look great and go with everything. For about $20, these have improved my workdays and have quickly become one of my favorite accessories.
I love decorating, but I live in an apartment so I’m always hesitant to damage my walls with nails or tacks. Henkel Mount Putty is a total lifesaver because it secures items without damaging or staining surfaces. I’ve used it to hang pictures, mount lights, and secure knick-knacks on surfaces. This is especially good for child- or pet-proofing an apartment! In my experience, this works better than Command Hooks and is so much easier than drilling. And, these packs last forever! Just make sure you store it in an airtight container when you’re not using it.
One of my biggest pet peeves is getting snuggled up in bed, then realizing I forgot to turn my lights off. But YEELIGHT Smart LED Bulbs are Wifi-enabled, so I can turn them off with my phone or Alexa! These are so convenient and so much fun. You can personalize your lighting, set timers, and even sync the bulbs up to music!
I just added these lights to my balcony and I am OBSESSED. They are safe to use indoors and outdoors. They have the perfect industrial/boho vice, and they’re bright enough to see and read without being too overwhelming. These are the perfect addition to any bedroom or patio.
I don’t know about you but I can never find scissors when I need them. This Slice Ceramic Blade Safety Cutter is more compact, effective, and safer than scissors or box cutters. I also like this because it’s kid-friendly (with adult supervision, of course). It’s so small I keep it on my keychain!
This handheld vacuum is super convenient. It’s cordless, comes with a ton of cleaning attachments, and has an LED light, which makes it ideal for cleaning small spaces. I use it in my apartment and my car. This is also really good at cleaning dust and dog hair. Cannot recommend it enough!
Finding cute, functional apartment supplies is an important component of creating a home that you enjoy.
