More often than not, we online shop when we are bored. Don’t try to say any different, because I know from first-hand experience this is true. What better way to pass the time then to shop for things you don’t need, or so it seems you don’t need?

Surprise — today’s ‘boredom shop’ has a purpose — and it is to buy one or more of the following four items that you didn’t know you needed.

  1. Ring Doorbell

Marked as “Amazon’s Choice,” the Ring Video Doorbell is a must-have feature on your front door. This smart little gadget allows you to see, hear and speak to any unexpected and/or expected visitors from your phone, tablet or computer. You also will receive motion detected alerts and alerts when someone presses the doorbell. Ring wants to keep you safe, allowing you to check-in on your house and property at any time. Make your home extra safe for you and your loved ones by purchasing this popular, Alexa-friendly device.

  1. Furbo Dog Camera

Hate leaving your furry friend? Wonder what they are up to while you’re away? With the Furbo, you will receive an alert when your dog is barking and you can give them treats while you’re gone. The two-way audio camera allows you to talk to your dog to settle their barking. The “treat tossing” feature lets you toss a treat to your dog through the Furbo app. Pre-fill the Furbo with your dog’s favorite treats so that they stay happy even when you’re not home.

  1. iRobot Roomba

This “Amazon’s Choice” smart vacuum is about to make your life a whole lot easier. The dual multi-surface brush sells itself, working together to grab dust, dirt, hair, large debris and much more. There is a full suite of sensors that navigate high traffic areas of your home and thoroughly cleans all types of flooring your household might contain. This Alexa-friendly device can be run and/or scheduled anytime through the app, and your Roomba will run for up to 90 minutes before automatically docking and recharging.

  1. Apple Pencil

This slim, yet brilliant piece of technology turns your iPad into a notepad, canvas or any sort of writing/drawing/note-taking device you can imagine. This pencil has natural fluidity, making your iPad even more versatile. It is compatible with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro (oldest model compatible) and almost all newer models.
