I did a quick post over on my Facebook page the other day about this topic and it was VERY popular, so I thought I’d do a whole blog post about it!
I didn’t make any big, overwhelming resolutions this year. I just want to improve in a few areas- like organization, health, fitness and self-care. Here are some products I’m either using, or eyeing, to help keep New Year’s resolutions.
The nice part is that most of these items ship Prime within a day or two, so you can get the help you need- FAST!
Planners – I NEED to write with pen and paper, so a paper planner is key to staying organized for me. This is the exact one I use, and my very favorite that I keep buying year after year!
Storage Baskets – I LOVE baskets. I literally use them for everything! They are the BEST for organizing- store toys, clothes, accessories, office supplies, the possibilities are ENDLESS! These are cute.
Garage Organizer – I know garage clean-up is on our list, so this is a great thing to help de-clutter!
Storage Tray – I have this and love it! I use it in my bathroom to store my hair products, but can be used to store so many things, including cleaning products, bath items, etc.
Clear bins – Literally a million uses! We got these and use them to store food, packs of gum, office supplies, small toys, bows and ribbons… They are so handy and stackable, and clear is best so you can see what’s inside! LOVE these!
Velvet Hangers – Nothing like a well organized closet to make you feel total zen. Matching hangers help with that. And these felt ones are the best! Clothes don’t slide off!
Pens – Because cute journaling requires cute pens. Also great for color coding your planner. ;)
Makeup Case – I have this and love it! Great for using at home (not just travel) to store makeup. Plus, you can easily bring your makeup to any room of the house to do whenever/wherever you can! #momlife
CONSUMABLE RESOLUTION HELPERS
Elderberry – Great for the immune system. We take these every day during cold and flu season!
Mixed nuts – for your resolution to snack healthier. This is one of my favorite blends! We order it regularly!
Clean protein shakes – quick and easy meal replacement or fuel for a workout. These will help a myriad of resolutions! I had a case of these exact ones a while back and preferred the taste over almost every other pre-made protein drink I’ve tried!
Watermelon Perrier – trying to give up soda? Or another calorie filled beverage? These are SO good and after a couple of days, you won’t miss the soda! The bubbles and fruity flavor will curb your cravings! Minus the 30 grams of sugar too! Around $0.35/can too- so very inexpensive!
Collagen peptides – These are all the rage right now. “Hydrolyzed collagen supports hair, skin, nails, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, eyes, gut, heart & brain health. It also has acacia fiber, which won’t cause blood sugar spikes.”
Protein bars – with 20 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar, these are meal/snack replacement bars- especially if you have a goal to eat lower sugar quantities!
Nespresso pods – this is part financial and part health related. Making your own espresso drinks at home will undoubtedly save you a lot of money, but it will also allow you to regulate the sugar content, and use your own low-calorie milk if you want to go that route. You’ll also need a machine and frother. This bundle is perfect!
RX bars – some of the most clean, simple bars on the market! Another worth candidate for a meal replacement or workout energy!
Pellegrino – kill two birds with one stone. Drink more water (yes, this counts) and less sugary drinks.
Essential oil starter kit – putting this under consumable, but please read up on these. Great if you are interested in trying to take less medication, use less harsh cleaning chemicals or use more natural fragrances.
Apple cider gummies – want to get on the AVC train but can’t stomach drinking vinegar or taking capsules? Then these are a sight for sore eyes!
TO GET YOU MOVING – LIGHT DUTY
Workout Leggings – These are such a good dupe for Lululemons- and under $25! Fit true to size, I wore these my entire pregnancy to work out in. Light compression and pass the squat test!
Tank Top – Because the best motivation is cute clothing, right?! These tanks are breezy and great for working out in- keep in mind the arm pit is quite low. I like it, you can see your cute sports bra peek through. And you can’t beat that price!
Adidas Ultraboost – Some of my favorite shoes! So good for athleisure as well as working out in! Like walking on CLOUDS.
Mini stepper with resistance bands – the perfect inexpensive, small device that you can take & store anywhere!
Ab wheel – you’ll feel the burn on this one! We have one of these and it’s no joke! Again, YouTube or Google will give you ideas on variations for working out with this.
Resistance band set – everything you need to work out at home. TONS of free workout videos online using resistance bands! Traveling? Just take a couple with you for a workout option in your hotel room!
Exercise dice – I mean, how fun is this!? If all else fails, make exercise a game and you’ll forget how tough it is- kind of.
Fitbit – I know quite a few people who are ALL-IN on their Fitbit. They HAVE to “get their steps in” but you know what? They do get them in thanks to always being able to check progress- and it gets them burning calories!
TO GET YOU MOVING – HEAVY DUTY
Exercise bike – less expensive but still loaded with features and resistance options! Will get you sweating for sure!
Upright flywheel bike – more along the lines of what’s trending (ehem, Peloton) but waaaaay cheaper. I mean, $300-ish vs. $2500 PLUS $50/month!? Awesome reviews too. You can get this bike and use it with free YouTube workout videos!
Under the desk cycle – if space is an issue, or if you’ve got a cool office where you can use it! This thing eliminates quite a bit of excuses!
Rowing machine – if you want a full-body workout, this is your machine! Such a great price too! (hovers around $210-$275)
Thank you for this. I’m working on my go to breakfast and needed some healthy items like elderberry and protein powder-thanks for the advice!!
Just got a planner myself for the new year :) I did a similar post today…yours is better :)
