Espresso machine. It was romantic at first pulling those levers, grinding my beans, and frothing my perfectly tempered milk. No joke saved THOUSANDS (I used to go to Starbucks 1-3 times a day 🙃). Midway through lockdown I realized it’s a ton of work to make the perfect cappuccino and tapered to French (I still make a shot of espresso every now and then when I’m feeling like trouble). I’ve since managed to reduce my intake of liquid gold to like a few cups A WEEK so double points. ☕️

I use an iPad on a desktop stand as a speakerphone/videophone for conference calls. Already had the iPad so I suppose I just bought the $15 stand, but it’s great for this purpose. Join WebEx/Teams calls from the iPad and still have two screens to work or view the meeting materials - plus it’s a better angle for video and works well as a speakerphone.

My boyfriend is trying to guilt me into watching his dog Mon-Friday while he works. He just got an offer for a new job that requires him to be in the office 7-5. I work from home. His dog is not well behaved and sometimes pees in my place. I watched his dog a few times when he was out before, but I don’t want to take this responsibility full time. We leave separate and are dating for 9 month already. How do I politely push back? Please help
