I have a TYLT VU wireless charger on my nightstand, but I'd trade the TYLT for the Curvilux Smart Nightstand in a heartbeat because it's not an ordinary bedside table.  It might look like a grade school desk, but the Curvilux Smart Nightstand features a locking drawer that's controlled with your smartphone, a wireless charging area on top… Read More

The Foot Hammock review

The older I get, the more my kids must question my sanity.  Whether it's the organic diet that they just don't see the point of,  or the obsession I have with home automation, they are constantly wondering what I'm doing.

Have you thought about using a standing desk for all those health benefits you've read about, but you don't want to completely give up the option of sitting?  What if you could have one desk that functions as both a sitting and a standing desk?  And what if it's priced low enough that it won't destroy… Read More

I've shown you pictures of my desk that I custom designed from Elfa components at the Container Store.  I designed a perfect desk for myself, and then I was able to easily turn that one person desk into a two-person desk when my husband wished he had a new desk, too.  That desk was built… Read More
