Here are a few highlights from our recent Facebook discussion:

Woman surfing the internet on laptop

Jessica is enjoying her speedy new T-Mobile internet connection!

Mine has been the T-Mobile Home Internet! I live *just* far enough off the main road that we don’t get DSL – I’m talking like 1/2 mile away! 😆 Unlimited and $50/mo! 🙌Jessica 

We recently switched to T-Mobile internet too! We live outside of city limits and had limited access before. Our family of four can now stream, game, and browse as much as we want and no one gets kicked offline. 👍🏼 – Staci

We have that too and it’s so much better than Frontier! We love our T-Mobile. – Jane

We went to them when Cox continued to raise the internet price… and there is no difference! Just as fast and we love it. – Joanne

countertop ice maker

Kerri upgraded to a new countertop ice maker.

We got the Thereye nugget-style ice machine from Amazon. I thought it was reasonably priced. It produces sooo much more ice than our other cheap, not nugget-style countertop icemaker that died recently. It’s much bigger, thicker, and more insulated than our previous icemaker, too. It also has a more substantial lid with more of a seal, so I think there is less melting compared to a regular countertop ice machine. – Kerri

I got one for Christmas 2020. Best thing in the world!!! – Suzanne

blue cooling pad on mattress

Tia’s new mattress chilling system is keeping her cool all night long.

My mattress cooler. Best invention ever. Now I sleep like a baby! – Tia

milk frother in stand on countertop

Marlaina has discovered the joy of frothed milk in her homebrewed coffee.

A milk frother 🙂 – the best thing I never knew I needed. It has a cute little stand. I always wanted one but didn’t think it was that necessary. It is totally worth it! – Marlaina

I love mine too! I love that it makes warm or cold frothed milk as well since I love cold brew – Teri

fire pit on wood deck

Heather is putting her new wood-burning fire pit to good use.

Our little fire pit. Tonight we roasted hot dogs! I have a fireproof mat under it along with a ceramic tile, but you won’t need the fireproof pad or tile if you have a concrete patio. – Heather

A woman holding Dawn dish spray

Lots of readers are discovering why we love Dawn Platinum Powerwash.

Dawn Platinum Powerwash dish spray… this stuff is amazing! It cuts grease on things I’ve been trying to get clean forever!! – Shauna

I agree!! – Cynthia

When that bottle gets empty, you can make your own. Google it – just 3 ingredients! – Cathey

step stool in kitchen

This kitchen step stool looks so handy.

Just got this Cosco Kitchen Stepper (OOS at the moment ☹️). I already love it and wish I’d known about this when my older 2 were little! It folds flat and can be moved from the kitchen to the bathroom easily for my 2-year-old to wash his hands or help at the counter. Also much cheaper than other kitchen helpers! – Rachel

I buy a nice step stool for everyone as a wedding present. I have never seen one in a registry but it is always an appreciated gift. – Kim

woman wearing sleep mask

Kara is sleeping better with her new Manta Sleep mask.

Not only is it comfortable, but it lets my family know I’m done with the day. 🤣 Kara

leather purses and wallets

Here’s what Kathy got in her Portland Leather Goods Mystery Box 👆

I got the Mini Tote Mystery Box. It can include any colors (and there are no returns), but if you’re game, it’s really fun! So far I’ve loved everything. I have a Mystery Rainbow bag on its way and have no idea what color it is. It’s the Fiesta. – Kathy

Just ordered the Medium Tote Mystery box – what a fun way to head back to school this fall! Thanks! – Casi

espresso machine on kitchen counter

Kelly discovered that she loves the taste (and savings) of homemade espresso!

My automatic espresso machine!! It saves me so much by not going to Starbucks and tastes better! – Kelly

solar house number sign

This solar-powered house number sign seems like a great idea!

A solar-powered address sign. Our local emergency responders want everyone to have them, or a solar light that shines on the regular address on the house. – Teri

blue personal alarm on a keychain

This personal safety alarm is a smart addition to any keychain. 

A Birdie! Pull it like a grenade and it screams out at any creeps, animals, etc at 130 decibels and a strobe light. I wish we lived in a world where we didn’t need that kind of stuff, but you can’t be too careful. I bought a lilac one for myself and a rose one for my friend’s daughter who just started driving and working at night. – Amanda

  1. Dana

    I had been watching and waiting for the kitchen step stool for like a year and got so excited when it was back in stock last week. I just got it the other day and already love it so much. My daughter loves using it to help me cook.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! I’m so glad you could finally grab it, Dana! 🎉Super sweet that your daughter enjoys helping you cook! ❤️

  2. Kay

    Thanks for sharing the Birdie. My sis is a teacher in Fresno n leaves school to go home late often. She has witnessed public theft/beating in daylight. Her home has been broken into. I’m definitely getting this for her.
