I love homemaking – it’s definitely my favorite job of all time! Accomplishing the goal of a peaceful and cozy home requires a lot of work, and while I’m glad to do the work, it’s always nice to have things that make the work a little easier. There were three products that really made a difference in my home management last year, so I thought I’d be a good friend and tell you about them!
#1 The Bissell Cordless Vacuum for Pet Hair
I think every household should have a cordless vacuum, even if you don’t have pets. These little things are great for cleaning up little messes, crumbs, dusty corners and yes…pet hair!
Paul bought this for me after our epic Christmas Card Adventure of 2016. It’s so nice to be able to snap a quick picture of us before church or to capture the whole family (including me!) at a gathering. Self timer is so 2007! 🙂
#3 My Happy Planner
Having an effective planning system did so much for my home management last year! I talked more about how I used it in this post, but it just helped me stay on top of things – and even ahead of the game – in so many areas! Last year I used a dated planner with a vertical layout like this one. (For 2018 I chose the faith edition but it’s now sold out everywhere!)
Watch the video to see the products I mentioned!
Was there a product that revolutionized your homemaking in the last year or so? I’d love to hear about it!

I will check out that vacuum. We haven’t had a dog since ours passed away almost 3 years ago, but our kids are begging. I think it’s time, and I know I’m going to need a handheld vacuum!
It’s so handy for pet hair!!
I have an older corded hand vacuum and it doesn’t get used. Need to check this one out! I love a paper planner! I have tried to convert to my phone calendar but find I can’t keep if efficiently. I always want to look back past years and you can’t if you didn’t keep a paper planner.
I agree – I tried the digital calendar but just couldn’t get the hang of it!
I’ve been talking about getting a cordless vac with one of my Christmas gift cards! I just think it would be so hand in the house and in the car. Glad you love yours! I couldn’t function without my planner. It keeps my whole family organized, on track for the year and helps me to be thoughtful to others when I write down birthdays, important dates and gift lists.
Oh yes – it’s also GREAT for the car! Aren’t planners just the best?!
Looking into that cordless hand vac now! I love my dog, but he sheds 😉
It is such a great little vacuum!
