    This chair harness is my go-to gift for new moms – it packs easily in a purse and can be used everywhere, even without a table. I especially loved it when I flew solo with a baby to strap them in while I dealt with luggage etc. https://www.amazon.com/MISSEIAR-Portable-Foldable-Restaurant-Shopping/dp/B0BWNDTFXG/

    They need a fifth clutter personality – lazy.
    I LOVE throwing things away and I’m generally a minimalist, but combine a small apartment & laziness and boom. Clutter. I hate putting things away, lol.

    The Zella’s jogger link navigates to the Palmat brush cleaning tool.

    wearing the Zella joggers right now at work (Casual Friday, right?) I’ve had them for 3 days and worn them for 2 of those days. So comfortable, I’m in the Large and they don’t pinch at the waist.. good pockets.

  5. Anna says:

    I am low-key bitter that my SIL has been able to have my MIL take care of her three kids. She has probably saved nearly $100k. We live in a different city, so that’s not an option. I do a nanny share now and have started looking for daycares once my dude is a little bigger, and they aren’t even much cheaper. Unless you qualify for subsidies, you’re looking at $1500-$2200/month for one toddler in my city and hours are a joke.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts.
