When life is busy, your schedule is packed and there are so many choices available, sometimes you just need some ways to simplify things. From multitasking products to hi-tech services, here are six exclusive ways we can make your life easier.

Five years after its launch, we’ve redesigned our popular House by John Lewis range to concentrate on multitasking products that look contemporary. From a bed with a surprising amount of storage to an ultra versatile coffee table, our designers have put together a cleverly designed, compact collection that leads the way in small-space living – at affordable prices.

If you love to cook, you’ll know that a lot of recipes make it hard to avoid wasting bits and pieces of food, while prepping the vegetables can take too much time on a week night. Waitrose’s Cook Well subscription service offers a convenient and easy answer. A weekly delivery of up to three delicious recipes for two people, the meals come ready to cook with pre-portioned ingredients – and all below 650kcal per person. With vibrant vegetarian, pescatarian and meat options available, it makes fresh, healthy eating easy.

Whether you feel like drinking a rich latte macchiato, an authentic Italian-style espresso or a simple filter coffee, our Partners in store can make it easier for you to choose the right coffee maker. Plus, we have machines you’ll only find here, such as the outstanding De’Longhi ECAM650.85.MS PrimaDonna Elite Experience Bean-to-Cup coffee machine. With touch-screen technology, a mobile app, an iced-coffee function, six user profiles and a two-year guarantee, you’ll have the ability to personalise and perfect your coffee to deliver a delicious cup, every time.

Luckily, you can get everything done under one roof, from booking your trip to buying your holiday essentials. The luxury travel company Kuoni is in 15 of our shops, and specialises in crafting your perfect escape. And once you’ve booked, John Lewis can help you out with foreign currency and travel insurance too. Kuoni is offering Insider news readers the chance to win one of four luxury holidays at Shangri-La hotels in Asia.

You’ll find a superb range of handy beauty services in most of our shops, from Blink Brow bars, Jessica nail bars and Shavata nail and brow bars to Decléor, Clarins Skin Spas, Elemis and Espa treatment rooms. Our Birmingham and Leeds stores have their own &Beauty salons offering hair, nail, face and body treatments, and an &Beauty nail and brow salon is opening in our new Oxford shop on 24 October, too. Which means you can fit in that quick pedicure (or massage, or blow-dry) while you’re doing your regular shopping. You can book online – click here to discover what your nearest shop has to offer.
