  • Former associate shopping editor for Reader's Digest, Taste of Home, Family Handyman


As a former associate shopping editor for Family Handyman, Emily has covered everything from home decor to tools and the best kitchen gear. She recently finished a five-year remodel of her 100-year-old home in the Midwest, sparking her love of interior design and DIY. She has written for Family Handyman, Taste of Home and Reader's Digest. Previously a sales and deals editor, Emily is passionate about locating the best products at prices that readers can afford. Her expertise lies in product testing and exploring viral products from Tiktok and Instagram. When she’s not searching through flash sales, you can usually find her reading mystery novels or cuddling with cats.
