Favorite Things

*Cue Julie Andrews*

It can take time to discover the things we like. For many of the things I use on a daily basis, it took years and dozens of alternatives before finding my favorite. I wish I could have discovered all this stuff sooner, so I hope pages like this become more popular.

Aside from making cool things more discoverable, pages like this are also a great way for people to get a better picture of who you are if they don’t know you yet. Plus, writing a sentence about stuff you use ensures everything in your life has a purpose, and the page also can save you money on some of the paid things you use via referral links (disclosure).

My goal is to make this page as comprehensive as possible, so many of the lists here are complete lists. For example, I really do have only a dozen apps installed on my laptop, and I rely on the list to reinstall those apps every time I get a new computer.

This page lists all my favorite digital things. For a list of all the physical stuff I own, check out my onebag page. If you have recommendations for things to check out, let me know!
