10 Home Gadgets That You Must Buy


Although we might not term ourselves as gadget addicts, we do love the ease and technology associated with them. Bonus marks if they can help us save some money and effort as well. And while we understand that buying gadgets might be counter intuitive to saving money, we are all for investing in devices that can pay for themselves {and even see a bit of return} over the long haul. This usually means we invest in energy-efficient gadgets, that can save person-hours and effort all in one go.

Ahead is a list of eight incredible gadgets that can save a lot of money, along with their cost and the amount of time that it will take before their extra fee is paid for by their utility. Since they’re gizmos, they make for great gift ideas, plus you can use the argument that “this will save money” when suggesting the purchase of one of these items to your significant other. Alternatively, you can start an SIP so that you can purchase these home gadgets without putting a dent in your savings.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

1. An Electric Toothbrush

Dental care is something all of us very conveniently ignore, only to end up at the dentist’s with a sore gum and walk out with fewer teeth. An electric toothbrush is designed such that it usually cleans the teeth and gum in a precise manner leaving it squeaky clean!

Simply stated, rechargeable electric toothbrushes provide superior plaque removal to regular manual toothbrushes. And because they provide the brushing action for you, many people find using power toothbrushes easier than using regular manual ones. Also, with so many different types and features available, it’s easy to find one that suits your specific oral health needs.

2. Skin Cleansing Device

Because great skin is everybody’s right! These silicon made non-porous cleansers removes all dirt, grime and makeup from your face while leaving it squeaky clean and free of all bacteria, in just sixty seconds! Besides saving time, a facial brush can be used on both your face and neck. It can remove that top layer of dead skin to improve skin tone. This, along with its effects to stimulate circulation, will create firmer, more lasting skin. The result? Reduced wrinkles, soft, healthier skin, and a massaging routine that makes for a relaxing end to your day.

If you’re using a facial brush, don’t use an exfoliate scrub or chemical exfoliate. And if you’re using a facial brush, you’re using that brush—don’t let someone you know, borrow it. Does that go without saying? Probably. But it has to be said just in case.

Tip – The best time to use your facial brush is at night. This way, you remove the slough and environmental pollution from the day.

3. Shower Head

Using a more water-efficient showerhead will not only save you water but also power. A water-saving showerhead can save the average household over 50,000 litres (13,200 gallons) of water a year, that’s water which isn’t going down the drain, and water you’re not paying to heat.

Don’t forget to replace your light sources not just in the bathroom but also in your entire house with energy-saving LED bulbs, that can be turned on instantly as well as dimmed to low brightness levels.

4. iRobot Vacuum Cleaner

Trust your mom to be the happiest person in the world if you gift her this! The wifi connected vacuum cleaner only needs your instructions, and it goes about doing its job even without your supervision! So your mom can well be busy watching the TV of chatting on the phone while the house gets cleaned up.

Besides vacuuming your house has a lot of health benefits, especially because it eliminates pollutants and particles. Dirty carpets, sofa upholstery and even mattresses trap all sorts of respiratory irritants such as pet dander, dust mites as well as daily dust and dirt. When you vacuum your house regularly, it prevents the microscopic particles from being released back into the air and thereby helping you breathe better.

5. Amazon Echo

First things first, a device that can switch off the alarm for you! And no, it is just not about an alarm but a whole lot of daily functions that an Echo can do for you. Play your favourite songs or podcast, get the weather and traffic update, have it tell you a recipe, and so much more!

6. Slow Cooker/Nutri-Pot

Slow cookers contradict their name as they are so quick and easy to use. A simple combination of ingredients before you head out for work in the morning, and you have a healthy and filling meal waiting when you get home. Plus, there are always going to be multiple nights when you don’t want to cook when this device can be your lifesaver.

A small investment can, therefore, save you a considerable amount of money that would otherwise be spent on outside food/deliveries. Not to mention the fact that you will always have healthy homemade food to eat – also slow cookers thrive on inexpensive vegetables and the cheaper (tougher) cuts of meat, so that’s still a bonus.

7. Smart Watches

Going around in a frenzy looking for a charging point is not something you would need to do with a power bank. It is a portable battery charger that is, by now, not unknown to anyone anymore. Just make sure not to put it in your check-in baggage when travelling.

One great benefit of powerbanks is their portability. They aren’t too heavy and are convenient to carry in your bag, without taking up too much space or adding too much weight.

9. Espresso / Cappuccino Machine

For quick tasks usually, to be done in an oven, microwaves/toaster ovens are perfect. They take less time to preheat than ovens, making them a great money-saving option for small meals or even side dishes. If the oven is among one of your crucial kitchen essentials, a toaster oven can be a wise investment as well.

That’s not all – toaster ovens are also great for reviving leftovers. Also, toaster ovens can be a substitute for toasters — a massive plus for those who are trying to eliminate clutter or don’t want to buy more kitchen appliances.
