It’s usually right about the end of September that the reality of fall truly sets in.

The truth of the matter is, the transition to cooler weather brings about lots of changes. Whether you have kiddos or not, saying goodbye to the spontaneity of summer fun, bounty of delicious produce, and the longer days can be tough.

Have you ever had a sneaking suspicion that your neighbors are secretly judging your home? Bad news — they probably are. In a new state-by-state study, home services site Angi found that when it comes to passing judgment, Americans are most likely to side-eye three things: a messy yard, a cluttered house, and a smelly house.

Amazon Air Fryer Magnetic Cheat Sheet Review 2022

I used to think air fryers were over-hyped. Admittedly, I’d never tried one, but I couldn’t understand justifying taking up precious counter space with a device that essentially does what my oven can do. However, I got the opportunity to test out the new Cosori Lite last month and I was almost instantly proven wrong. Since then, I’ve used my air fryer for nearly every quick lunch or dinner, appreciating how fast it heats up and makes food crispy. The only downside?

So, the times and temperatures I’m used to are all varied now, which means I don’t want to overcook

IKEA Norway has the answers. In an ad promoting their Life Collection 2022, the company went to various Norwegian homes and found used furniture which need new owners. The video then highlights the different reasons — some serious, others more trivial — these items are being abandoned.

For instance, a SAGSTUA bed frame is being given away after the couple who owned it got a divorce. There’s also a set of TOLEDO chairs, bought in 1977, that’s being resold after the owner died last year. Another owner has put his MARKUS chair back on the market after his girlfriend found it too tacky. And then there’s a FJÄLLBO shelf that’s been
