ChicWish Open Front Cardigan
Post says this transitional coat is a take on a trend that she is loving right now: the "coatigan." It has the look of a coat but the feel of a cardigan, which makes it easy to take on and off as the weather changes. It has an elevated feel, so you can wear it with just about anything, from loungewear to workwear. It comes in 14 different colors, including tan, pink, black and more.
Feversole Women's Loafers
Another trend Post has been spotting everywhere? Penny loafers! She says they will never go out of style and they're the perfect swap for sneakers or flats when you want to switch up your footwear. This pair is affordable but looks way more expensive than it actually is, thanks to the buckle detailing. Plus, they feature a cushioned insole and are lightweight, according to the brand.

Peacocktion Crossbody Bag
If your purse can feel like a bottomless pit at times, Post says you'll likely appreciate this crossbody bag. It makes for mostly hands-free convenience and is a sleek complement to just about any outfit — and it only costs $20. According to the brand, it features a universal carrier that fits most iPhone and Android models, as well as six RFID blocking card slots.
Bagnet Magnetic Purse Hanger
Whether you're traveling or never want your bag to touch the ground regardless of where you are, you'll probably want this genius gadget within reach. Post says it was originally invented to keep handbags off of the floor in public restrooms, but it can be used just about anywhere there is a metal surface. According to the brand, the magnet is strong enough to support up to eight pounds, which is equivalent to most laptops or three bottles of wine.
Moipejo LED Flashlight Gloves
These LED flashlight gloves are another hands-free hack that shoppers are loving right now. They can be used for a range of tasks both inside and outside of the house. From DIY activities to late night walks, these gloves can easily illuminate low light situations — and batteries are included! Plus, one size fits all, since they are made from velcro and stretch easily.
PuzMug Olive Oil Mister
Post is one of the more than 10,000 shoppers who have given this kitchen gadget a glowing review. She says she uses it every day and that it has truly changed the way she cooks. Rather than pouring olive oil out of the bottle this smart dispenser turns it into a mist, so you can avoid wasting oil and save calories. Not only is it a useful tool for meal prep, but it can also be used on salads for dressing, Post says.
Joseph Joseph BladeBrush Knife and Cutlery Cleaner
This everyday item comes from a brand that Post loves for its smart kitchen gadgets. Rather than using a sponge, this cutlery cleaner allows you to get in the grooves, nooks and crannies of utensils in your sink while reducing your risk of injury, thanks to its smart design. It can fit right within the palm of your hand while you scrub (which makes it easy to use) and then its hung over the sink to dry once you've finished cleaning.
