“Anything magnetic I can use on my kitchen appliances instead of taking up space in my (precious few) cabinets is a small-space storage win for me. This four-pack of spice racks fits the bill nicely and also makes it easy to see if you're running low on paprika or have five containers of chili powder already.” —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

“I got sent these Ball Honeybee Keepsake Mason Jars, and I am truly obsessed. It's a specialty collection from the brand, and they are just simply adorable. I love using them in a variety of ways, like as glassware and for storage in my kitchen, but they would also look so good holding items (like a plant!) on a counter or bookshelf.” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

“Meet the newest, loudest proponent of summertime baths — me! This is partly because of Lush’s new Ippuku Ryo Cooling bath bombs. I tried out a ‘cooling bath’ on a hot night, and I will never be the same. I’m also generally a fan of the concept of ippuku, which I just learned about — it’s a small, powerful dose of refreshment during your day.” —Maddie Bilis, Deputy Lifestyle Director

“For the first time in almost three years, I genuinely love the look of my bathroom — and it’s all because I finally decided to buy the Kassatex x Chairish scalloped bath mat. This has truly been on my wishlist ever since the collaboration launched in April 2022, but I didn’t really need new bathroom decor at the time. I could never decide between the eight equally on-point color combos, either, so I ended up ordering both the blue and peach versions. I’m officially keeping the former, and even just walking past my (formerly super-dingy) bathroom now makes me smile.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

Crate & Barrel

“Picture this: You're whipping up an involved recipe. Your fingers are sticky, measuring cups are strewn about, and your cookbook won't stay on the correct page. We've all been there — it's overwhelming! And I don't want to be in that scenario any longer, which is why I have my eye on Crate & Barrel's olivewood cookbook and tablet stand. It's shaped like a cutting board, can be easily cleaned, and has a ledge that holds the desired page in place.” —Cullen Ormond, Home Associate Editor

“This summer, I'm restocking my outdoor essentials (i.e., beach blankets, foldable chairs, roller skates), and I'm really excited to have a wide blanket for picnics at the park and beach days. The Classic Checker blanket from Geometry is the perfect size for getting comfortable outside, and it's photo-friendly! I also have their beach towel in Pink Wild Garden for a solo outdoor adventure.” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

“If it’s possible to fall in love with an appliance during a demo, that’s exactly what happened to me when I recently saw the new GE Profile UltraFast Combo. Sure, you have to be in the market for a new laundry solution, but here’s why the UltraFast is where it’s at if you’re looking to splurge. First, it’s both a washer and a dryer that can complete both cycles for a larger laundry load in about 2 hours. That’s a pretty impressive stat, and the best part is you don’t have to worry about transferring your clothes from one machine to another. The unit itself isn’t exactly small, but it’s just one piece to factor into your laundry area’s footprint versus two, which can make it a space-saver in the right applications. Combine all this with the fact that it’s ventless and can be installed anywhere there’s a water hookup — and simply plugged right into a regular wall socket — and, well, you’ve got maybe the most flexible, energy-efficient washer-dryer solution on the market. Bonus: It’s even on sale until July 12!” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director
