Home, Sweethome

Homeowners, ever wonder which camera will serve you best? How about a vacuum that will be reliable for years? 

Owning a home comes with the pleasure of customizing your selection of cookware, appliances, technology, and more. While it can be a lot of fun to choose these items, if you are anything like me, you always want to know if you are buying a great product. The Internet has plenty of product reviews, which can be a blessing and a curse. How do you know which reviews to use without going into information overload? Today, I want to share two sites that help to cut through the clutter to find the best options for various products. I have no personal affiliation with these websites, I've just found them to be extremely helpful and have had no issues with any of their selections.

The Wirecutter -

A site built for efficiency, quality, and superb selection. Using several sources, the team at The Wirecutter provide unbiased product choices over a wide range of categories from TV's to cars, encompassing all sorts of gadgets. The team consists of professionals from various backgrounds who are knowledgeable on the items they recommend. One of the main reasons I like this site is that they take into account many important factors when selecting the best of the best: reviews from other trusted websites, extensive in-house product testing, consumer reviews, price for value, and the opinions of industry professionals. 

The best, not the most expensive. This is what excites me. Unlike most sites, this team focuses on finding the best product for most people. What's great, is that they also provide the "step-up" or "budget" pick of a product for those looking for the top of the line, or the less pricey choice.

The Sweethome-

The sister site to The Wirecutter, The Sweethome has developed a reputation for excellence in choosing great home-based products spanning from detergents to clothing hangers and everything in between. Using the same methods as The Wirecutter, this site narrows down lines of products in to either a single or very limited selection of excellent buys. 

Every review on both sites offers an easy to view top pick followed by a very thorough explanation of how the team arrived at that selection. I would encourage reading the explanation section for a few products to understand their rigorous methodology. Once the two sites have earned your trust, it's easy to turn to them and use their choices right away.

I hope you get as much use out of these great sites as I do. Fill your home with great quality products and enjoy them for years to come across multiple homes.
