Possible solutions:

-- Corner shelves that use tension to stay in place.
-- Command hooks on wall from which you can engineer light load bearing shelves held up by ribbon, rope, cord, etc.
-- Cup hooks in the ceiling to hang "swinging" shelves.

"Falling in love with" a kitchen tool sounds a little.... well, naughty!

I've always gone the cheap route on vacuum cleaners because I thought, well, vacuuming is vacuuming. Now that two stray cats have taken possession of the place, I upgraded to a Dyson -- the stick kind, very lightweight, refurbished so it was a relative bargain. Having an item that you enjoy using, rather than it being a burden, is certainly worth spending a little more.

I had that dresser along with the rest of the canopy bedroom set -- from Sears circa the 1970s. It looks better in mint!

Listen, I like the articles, but could we please tone down the Huffington Post-style hyperbolic headlines? This is not "unbelievable" any more than that bookcase in a niche was "surprising."

I think I would do a tension rod across the entire bay, with three roman style panels to the floor, so that I could cinch them up individually or all of them to above-the-radiator height or just enjoy the drama of them fully unfurled, like a stage curtain.

I finally succumbed to the "hurricane mop," and it works really well - every couple of days a quick dry mop and once a week I wet the mop and use the little salad spinner it comes with to wring it almost complete dry and really clean the floor. There's no water left behind with this contraption. No cleaning products necessary.

This reminds me of that horrible gift that keeps getting passed around in my family every christmas because no one wants it and everybody's trying to get rid of it, and it quickly becomes the family joke (except that some poor cousins and aunties don't find it funny AT ALL).

I would rather not get any more of those holiday cards that consist of some generic photo on the front and a hastily scribbled signature inside. I'd rather not get any electronic versions of that, either. But written or emailed, I love to receive photos of the kids or the family and a little note that expresses some pleasure in communicating with a human being, and not just fulfilling some ancient obligation handed down from generation to generation.
