It’s officially the first Friday of this decade! So, I figured I should share my first Friday Five round up for this decade! I am going to start doing these posts monthly now, I used to try to do them weekly, but I honestly just don’t always have five things that are worth sharing each week, so be on the look out for this post each month this year!
ONE — Carly’s Uses for Amazon’s Alexa
I am sort of geek when it comes to technology like this. I absolutely love my echo dots, I have one in between my kitchen and living room and then I also have on in my bedroom. I love seeing how people create “smart homes,” because it’s something I find super interesting! Maybe after I install some more gadgets I will share some of my “smart home” products!
TWO — Simplified Challenge
If you don’t follow @simplified on instagram you definitely should, I love their account and their planner! They are currently sharing a challenge where every day you do something to simplify your life. I love this because it’s not an all day affair, just something to help keep you on the right track and help “simplify” your life for 30 days this month!
THREE — Organization Tips from a Non-Organized Person
Kate Bryan shared her top 3 organizing tips from the perspective of a not so organized person. I thought that these were really interesting, in general I would consider myself to be pretty organized in general but I still found these tips to be really helpful because they help make it easier to stay organized!
FOUR — 23 Ways to Get Your Life Together
I just found this post that Brighton shared last January, but I feel like it’s a great reference for this year too. As the new year begins I am really trying to “get my life together,” especially before going back to school in about a week, so I thought these tips were super helpful!
FIVE — Amazon Fire Stick
So, I bought 3 fire sticks back in November because they were on crazy sale to give as Christmas gifts to my brother and my parents, and then I also got one for myself. I figured I would test it out because it had a few more apps than my now older smart tv had and it has ended up being SO nice. Earlier in the year I had thought about getting a new tv, because my smart tv that I got probably 4 years ago now, just doesn’t have all of the updated apps anymore. After getting the fire stick it feels like I have a brand new tv it’s SO nice. I also only need to use the fire stick remote (I don’t watch cable tv) which is amazing because right after I got Stella she chewed up the remote to my tv so it looks pretty gross lol!
