We’re online shopping more than ever and, unfortunately, that means bringing unwanted waste into our homes in the form of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, and other packing supplies.

For most of us, it wouldn’t be All Hallows Eve without a ritual viewing of Disney’s Hocus Pocus.

As someone who loves the idea of the season but actually experiences none of its wonders (because…South Florida), putting out these little festive touches is about as close as I’m going to get to fall feels (that and binge watching Hocus Pocus on repeat while burning every pumpkin and apple orchard-scented candle I can get my hands on).

Best Ergonomic Stools
I recently made the switch to an adjustable standing desk in my office, and it has made a world of difference. That said, I soon realized that my regular desk chair just wasn’t going to cut it anymore.

Active seating — specifically ergonomic stools — helps to strengthen core and back muscles, while allowing the spine to achieve its natural curve.

Is Aldi (Yes, the Budget Grocer) The Next Decor Haven?
When I moved to a small town and first encountered an Aldi, I did not understand it. There was, like, one employee working?
