Holley’s Favorite Stuff

Here are a few of my favorite things...

This page has links to all my favorite stuff! Check back as I add all the things I [don't wanna] live without.

KITCHEN

5.5 QT Air Fryer By (B. WEISS) Family Size 

This machine has changed leftover night FOREVER. The poor toaster oven is out the door thanks to this amazing air fryer. It's so fast. It makes things so nice and crispy in like 5 minutes! We seriously can't live without this thing.

Stand Up 'n' Stuff Taco Holders

The kids really love this one (and so do I). So easy to build a taco now!

Digital Food Scale

I love this kitchen food scale. So quick and easy to use.

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes

Make it cold without watering it down!

Sous Vide Precision Cooker

If you don't know anything about how to cook sous vide, neither did we! This little machine sits on the edge of a pot on the countertop and keeps a water bath at a consistant tempurature. You put your meat in a plastic bag and it cooks PERFECTALLY. Here's a how to: How to cook a Sous Vide Medium Rare Steak

Magnetic Microwave plate cover

No more cling wrap and splattered ceilings! You leave it stuck to the microwave ceiling and it's always there and ready to go.

8oz Porcelain Ramekins/Dessert Bowls- Set of 6

These dessert bowls are the best and you can bake in them. The perfect little bowl. Their shape is fun too (2 rounded corners and 2 pointed)

French Press Coffee Maker

We love our Keurig, but we are now using it just to make quick hot water for our French Press! WOW! Sorry, Keurig, but this makes WAY better coffee than you do.

HEALTH & SUPPLEMENTS

I'm not a health professional. This is what we use in our family. Check with your doctor, blah, blah, blah...

L-Tryptophan 500 mg, 120 Veg Capsules

This has really helped with my sleep. You take it DURING the day (I take one at lunch and one at dinner) to help your body make it's own melatonin by the time your ready for bed.

Certified Organic Lobelia Liquid Extract for Musculoskeletal System Support

This stuff is fantastic. Great for calming nerves and anxiety and relaxing tight muscles. We also put a little in our nebulizer with colloidal silver when we have chest congestion.

Core Olive Leaf, 2 oz.

Works great to prevent and treat infections (colds, flu, UTI) and inflammation. This is definitely in my "uh oh, I think I'm getting sick" remedy list.

Digize Essential Oil by Young Living Essential Oils

Great for upset stomach, stomach bug, vomiting, etc. Rub some on your abdomen or a take a few drops in some juice or water.

Activated Charcoal Capsules

This stuff is amazing! It absorbs materials within your digestive tract. Works great for stomach bug or anything else you want to clear out of your gut. Note, it will also absorb medications, so don't take it within an hour of taking medications.

Oil Pulling Blend

If you haven't tried oil pulling... you should. Works fantastic to help clear up and prevent sinus infections. This oil tastes great... just swish around in your mouth for about 10 minutes (do it while you're in the shower, helps the time pass quicker). Then rinse it out and brush your teeth. Done and done!

Cool Mist Inhaler Compressor

We have a penguin but this one is similar. Not sure what I did without one before! Works WONDERS for respiratory infections. Fill with Colloidal Silver and  a few drops of Lobelia, pop yourself in front of the TV and breathe deep!

Colloidal Silver

Anti-viral, anti-bacterial... this stuff is a staple in our house. Feel yourself getting sick? Take a teaspoon a few times a day. Pink eye? Drop some in your infected eye. Respiratory infection? Throw it in the nebulizer/compressor.

TECHNOLOGY

Smart Plugs

Works great with our Alexa (can't attest to google home or any other). Alexa, turn on the lamp!

Brother MFC-9330CDW All-in-One Color Laser Printer

Printer, Scanner, Copier, and Fax, Duplex Printing, Wireless Networking, Mobile Device Printing, Scanning. Works great, love it!

WD 3TB External Hard Drive

I have a bunch of these. Great for backup... great for a portable storage system... they're about the size of two business cards.

Amazon Dot... Hello Alexa

It's true. We are an Alexa family and we love it. Timers, reminders, alarms, lists, automated routines... The future is fun!

HOUSEHOLD

High Pressure Rain Shower Head

I love this shower head. It won't save you any water because you will not want to get out of your shower. I installed it with this Adjustable Shower Arm and it works great for all the different heights of our family members.

3 Tier Show Rack

I know, it's just a shoe rack! But I love how it organized our "shoe pile" at the front door. We got two and hooked them together.

Vornado 4-Gallon Evaporative Humidifier

Our cats love that we have this in the winter, as does my hair. It really helps with the static in our house. Holds a lot of water so it doesn't feel like we're filling it all the time. Here are the replacement filters we get for it > >

Allergen Control Spray

This is a miracle spray. Our son is allergic to one of the cats at our house.  After one day of being around it, the coughing and itchy throat will start. But not if I spray this stuff! When I spray this throughout the room and he has ZERO symptoms.

Wool Dryer Balls

We don't waste money on chemical-laden dryer sheets anymore! These work great and I have yet to buy another batch over 2 years later!

Digital Body Weight Scale

I don't always like stepping on the scale, but I do like this scale! Accurate, fast, and I love that I don't have to tap on it to wake it up, just step and go.

Magnetic Pen Holder

It's a simple thing I know... but there needs to be writing utensils on the refrigerator. This magnet is SUPER strong!

Mug Warmer

This is a necessity in my office. I hate lukewarm coffee! I have THIS ONE too and I really like it. But this one is my favorite with three different heat settings.

qplus-recessed-lights

LED Recessed Lighting

These lights fantastic. They are dimmable and they mount so close to the ceiling you just need a hole in your drywall or drop ceiling. We're very happy with them.

BEAUTY

Body Merry Age Defense Neck Cream

I love this neck cream. I use it every night!

Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream Natural & Organic Anti-Aging Lotion

This is my everyday lotion. I use it all over my face, not just around my eyes. Very light and works nicely for fine lines.

Burt's Bees Milk and Honey Body Lotion

The best lotion for dry hands. It's not greasy or heavy and smells nice.

Burt's Bees Foot Creme, Coconut

This stuff is no joke! A thick, almost gel-like cream, I use this on my feet at night and then put socks over them. Great in the winter time!

Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel

This stuff is crazy! Some things you need to know:

  1. Your feet will be BABY soft when you're done. I don't care how gnarly they are right now.
  2. It takes 2 days for them to start to peel
  3. Your feet will NOT be presentable for at least a week.
  4. It's totally worth it! Just plan ahead.

MOM/BABY STUFF

It's been a while since I carried around a diaper bag, but here's some of the stuff that got me through!

Pilates During Pregnancy

If you still have a DVD player around, this exercise routine is great for durning and after pregnancy.

On Becoming Baby Wise: Giving Your Infant the Gift of Nighttime Sleep

I used a combination of this and The No-Cry Sleep Solution to get my little one to sleep through the night.

The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night

I used a combination of this book and Baby Wise to navigate the dilemma that is getting that baby to sleep already!

Rinse Cup with Soft Edge

I know, doesn't seem like much but this thing is THE BEST. I had it for years and when the handle broke, I immediately went out and got another one!

TOYS & GAMES

KidKraft Large Kitchen

Got years and years of use out of this one! Then passed it down to a cousin. Money well spent!

156 Piece Magic Magnetic Building Set

This is so much fun! Great for kids and adults. The magnetic are super strong.

100 Pack Glow Sticks

Is it weird that I've bought these 5 times? Nah, I'm just that cool.

Beat the Parents

Everyone in our family loves this trivia game! Kids have to answer stuff parents would know and parents have to answer stuff kids would know.

All Terrain RC Truck

This thing is REALLY fun! Grass, gravel, concrete... it does it all. It's fast, it's robust, it's fantastic for adults and kids!

PETS

CatGenie Self Washing SELF FLUSHING Cat Box

If you have a cat and you don't have a CatGenie, literally drop what you are doing and buy one this very instant. It is THE BEST THING I'VE EVER BOUGHT.

  1. Automatic cat box flushes waste away and washes itself clean
  2. Uses litter-like Washable Granules not clay litter to satisfy cats need to dig and cover
  3. Requires hookup to cold water and electrical outlet. We have ours in the basement but you could put it near the washer as well. Where ever you have a drain.
  4. I NEVER have to scoop litter and I barely think about it except to change the cartridge.

Feliway Diffuser for Cats

This worked wonders for a number of our cats throughout the years. Emits a calming pheromone that human's can't smell at all. Reduces stress, scratching, and spraying.

Allerpet Cat Dander Remover

This stuff works great for reducing our son's allergies to the cats. It also makes their fur really soft!

Cat Scratcher - Chaise

Don't know why, but our cats love the shape of this. One of them will just hang out on it!

urineOFF Cat & Kitten Odor Remover and Pheromone Blocker

It's crazy how well this stuff works!

FOOD

Cafe Bustelo Espresso Ground Coffee, 36oz Canister

We love this coffee! We use it with these REUSEABLE KCUPS.

Vega One Plant Based Vegan Protein Powder

This tasty protein powder/shake mix is so yummy and comes in a bunch of different flavors. Our favorites are the vanilla, coconut almond, mocha, and chocolate. Love this as a meal replacement with some fruit and veggies mixed in.

Mayorga Organics Cafe Cubano Dark Roast, 2 pound, Whole Bean

We are loving this coffee in our French Press. Also love that is is organic, non-gmo, and fair trade!
