  • It's shopping season once again, and there are so many tempting offers online. But not all purchases need to feel like budol if we carefully evaluate wants versus needs and if we are realistic about how much we allow ourselves to spend.

    Hottest home devices you can buy online this 11.11

    We rounded up a list of household things moms and dads would want to gift themselves this holiday season. We also searched for the best options available, so it's up to you if you want to splurge or save. Just make sure it makes you happy!

    Robot vacuum cleaner

    A robot vacuum cleaner can be a handy helper for moms who don't always have the time or energy to sweep, mop, and vaccum. While it won't completely eliminate the need for periodic deep cleans (especially in corners that the vacuum can't reach), it can help improve your home's day-to-day upkeep and cleanliness.

    There are many cheap products labeled as robot vacuum cleaners in online stores, but a word of caution: not all of them are vacuum cleaners. Many are just sweepers or mops. Here are two brands we recommend if you want the real thing.

    Personally, as a rule of thumb, whether buying a want or a need, I try to buy the best I can afford. That does not always mean getting top-of-the-line things, but it means carefully evaluating each purchase — considering the function, and benefit we want to get from an item, and knowing when to splurge, save, or delay a purchase.
