It's Wednesday, so you know what that means — another week of Editor's Picks! I know it's pretty hard to believe the days are long, but the weeks are sure on flying by, and the one thing helping me navigate these unprecedented times (or days)? A few carefully curated products, which I've invested in over this past week.
I've made some updates and upgrades within my apartment, and most of my attention was broad, focusing on my apartment as a whole, with tons of fun finds along the way.
Wondering what #BrittanysBestBuys of the week were? Continue scrolling to see this week's top nine EditorPicks.
1. A monitor screen for my desk
Acer SB220Q bi 21.5 Inches Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS Ultra-Thin Zero Frame Monitor for $92.98, at Amazon
Until the pandemic, I didn't have "real" furniture in my apartment, let alone a desk. Fast-forward a year into this thing? I've started to acquire "more adult pieces," this monitor included. I read online it's a game-changer when used over a regular laptop screen, so TBC on whether or not it lives up to the hype, but right now, its sleek screen is captivating.View Deal
2. An adapter suitable for my Macbook Air
USB C Adapter for $29.99, at Amazon
I'm a major fan of Macbook's, and when I upgraded to the Macbook Air this past summer, I was thrilled; however, what wasn't so thrilling? This updated version is so specific that the outlet isn't compatible with any USB cord's I currently own
3. A foldable ladder that tucks away in my kitchen corner
Best Choice Products 4-Step Portable Folding Heavy-Duty Steel Ladder for $49.99, at Amazon
While living in my apartment these last two years, I've avoided a ladder and resorted to a chair. So investing in a foldable ladder was long overdue, and I'm happy that I did. Made from high-grade steel, this model is constructed with strength and reliability, wide steps, and anti-skid rubber feet to provide safety and support. View Deal
4. This peel-and-stick wallpaper that's ceiling-approved
Wood Contact Paper l
Was $5.98, Now $5, at Amazon
My noisy neighbor upstairs is famous at this point, and so are the shoe marks on my bedroom ceiling wall from hitting it with my shoe every time they make noise. To turn my bedroom into my oasis (and match my very zen wallpaper), I've opted to add this wooden peel-and-stick wallpaper to hide the marks and lead me to a much more positive path.

6. This must-have mattress upgrade
The Brick starting at $395, at Allswell
In the last year, I've switched my mattress in-and-out a handful of times, and it was Groundhog's Day up until now. The Brick is Allswell's latest model, and their firmest yet — so if you're a side sleeper like me? It's pure perfection every single night. View Deal
7. This mounted laptop and monitor holder
WALI Single LCD Monitor Desk Mount for $54.99, at Amazon
When I invest in a project, I don't do it half-way — and this laptop-and-monitor wall mount is case and point. The set-up was relatively easy, and it's compact enough to fit on my small desk. Talk about a win-win. View Deal
8. This keyboard-and-mouse set
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo for $28.99, at Amazon
My monitor and USB adapter would have been worthless without investing in a mouse-and-keyboard set like this one. With advanced 2.4GHz radio-frequency (RF) technology, this combo offers a stable wireless connection for up to 33 feet.View Deal
9. This wireless printer
HP ENVY Photo 7164 All-in-One Printer for $159.95, at Apple
As you can tell, it's been a big tech week for me product-wise, so naturally, I've saved the best for last: this wireless printer. After unsuccessfully purchasing another version — and later finding out it wasn't compatible with my Macbook Air — this version saved the day and was easier than expected set-up-wise.
