Your day can go more smoothly if you take advantage of special tools that make tasks easier. Indoors or out, try these tips that help you get the job done right.

Meal Prep

Even the most seasoned cook can have trouble picking up heavy pots or chopping vegetables. A few kitchen tools make it easier to get your meal ready:
  • Cutting board with suction cups to keep it steady
  • Lightweight pots and pans
  • Forks, knives, and spoons with easy-grip handles
  • Non-slip mats to stop items from sliding on your kitchen counter
  • Stool where you can sit to cook or wash dishes
  • Kitchen fan to keep you cool while you work

Getting Dressed

Try these items that can make the morning rush to get ready go smoother:
  • Buttonhooks and zipper pulls to help you get in and out of your clothes with ease
  • Long-handled shoehorn so you can slide on your shoes without bending over

Washing Up

A few small things can make all the difference when you're at the sink or in the shower:
  • Electric soap dispenser and toothbrush
  • Lighted magnifying glass to improve your view while you shave or put on makeup
  • Long-handled brushes and combs
  • Shower chair if you need to rest while you rinse off

Working or Playing Outside

Stay active outdoors, even on warm days, by trying these:
  • Cooling vest filled with ice packs to beat the summer heat. Also try a cooling wrap that goes around your neck, wrist, or ankles.
