    41 Products For Your Home That'll Make You Think "Why Didn't I Buy This Years Ago"

    Blackout curtains, a dresser mirror, a vertical shoe tower, and more cool products to make your home the best place it can be.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A super-sleek velvet ottoman designed so the top pops off (and you can flip to make a small table) to reveal some sneaky storage. You can fill this with basically anything, even an ever-growing candle collection, as one BuzzFeed editor does.

    Amazon, Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord says: "Another bonus? If you flip the lid over, it has a wooden base, so you can *also* use this as a teensy snack table. I recently got one of these for my new apartment to stash my candles and ~candle accessories~ in, and it's pretty much become my favorite piece of furniture?? I use it to prop up my feet during work hours and sometimes if I want to eat on my couch I'll use it as a tray. It's also sturdy enough to sit on, if I ever wanted to have guests over and needed an extra chair. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy to set up — I had it done in less than 10 minutes, and probably didn't even need the directions. It also just looks so darn cute (and comes in so many colors that I'm tempted to buy another!)."

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in nine colors).

    2. Sticky Stake insect traps you place in your plants to attract flies, gnats, midges, and other insects and keep them from flying around your house and annoying you so very much.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time, I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately, I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    3. A super-cool wall-art holder with slots to hold your favorite lipsticks. Not only will it be a piece of art on your wall, but it will be super convenient when you are looking for the specific lipstick that matches your outfit. Now you know exactly where it is.

    Makeup In Place / Etsy

    BTW — Makeup In Place is a Florida-based small biz that specializes in these super fun and practical makeup organizers. 

    Promising review: "I love this lipstick holder!! It's practical but also a fun decoration for the wall. It's really well made. It is also packaged beautifully!! I really love it!" —Adriana W

    Get it from Makeup in Place on Etsy for $46.50 (available in 10 colors and two hole size options). 

    4. A soundproofing strip to help block out all the surrounding noise so you don't have to hear the music that your upstairs neighbor decides to put on at 2 a.m. Some of us like to sleep!!!

    amazon.com

    PLUS: This also makes sure that your air-conditioning and heat doesn't escape under your doors, thus saving you energy and money!

    Promising review: "This product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation. I live in an apartment in Manhattan and never noticed how much sound comes in and out until I had to be on conference calls working from home! This little tape made a big difference, took me a couple of minutes to install." —Sandra Revueltas

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors).

    5. A sofa table skinny enough to not take up a ton of space but still give you a place to add chic decor pieces and organized storage — from the entryway or even behind the couch.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This arrived sooner than expected! It was easy to put together. You don’t need any special tools and can do it by yourself. It worked perfectly for my foyer, and I was able to tuck the dog bowls under it with no problem. Clutter and crowded foyer, begone! I’d buy it again." —genabeebers

    Get it from Amazon for $52.75 (available in light and dark brown and in two styles).

    6. Some Shoe Slotz designed so you can store your shoes on top of each other instead of side by side, meaning not only will your closet look so neat, but you'll also have room to store more shoes. Always a win in my world.

    Sally Elshorafa / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Sally Elshorafa says: "This product SAVED MY SHOES! I have an awkward set of built-in shelves in my closet, and it was the only place I wanted to put my shoes. As you can see from the before pic (above), it was a big mess; my shoes were piled on top of each other and getting really dirty. Traditional shoe caddies or boxes didn't really work because there's not much horizontal space, so I tried the Shoe Slotz. It fixed the problem perfectly! Because the design smartly stacks one shoe on top of the other, you save 50% of the space you'd normally use to store your shoes."

    Get a 10-piece set from Amazon for $27.95

    7. An adjustable standing desk because if you knew you were going to be working from home this long, you probably would have invested in this the first week. But if working from home looks like it's going to be your future now, this baby is well worth it. Not only can you customize the height, but it can hold up to 275 pounds, is water and scratch resistant, and has an included cable tray to keep your desk free and clear of cords.

    the bamboo desk top with white legs
    FlexiSpot

    Promising review: "I love this desk! The motors are super quiet, and it moves up and down smoothly. The tabletop (bamboo) seems very solid and durable. The base also feels solid and is heavy so it seems like it will last. I also love that you can program four custom heights that you choose and just touch a button and it goes to that height. Great Desk! I recommend FlexiSpot and Kana Pro bamboo desk for sure!" —Zach

    Get it from FlexiSpot for $539.99+ (available in two desktop shapes, five sizes, three frame colors, and 16 other add-ons). 

    8. A door draft stopper reviewers swear is a great way to stop cold air from getting into your home during the winter months. Not only will you save money on your energy bill, but you'll also stop tiny critters from crawling their way into your home. And now that's a win-win.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The circulation in our house had a constant breeze coming in from below our back door. This product took about 10 minutes to install (cut to size, removal/replacement of our door stopper), and we have no more cold air blowing in from outside! The magic of the product is its rigidity. It is hard enough to block the strong draft we have, but it's soft enough to bend over our rug. If the stopper were very hard, it would push away the rug or force the rug to roll up or buckle. For us, this product is a perfect solution to our draft issue." —Wuzaaap

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors).

    9. An Aerogarden so you can grow your own herbs (and even veggies) at home, no matter if you live in an apartment without any outdoor space. You'll feel like a real chef when you add your homegrown basil to your recipe.

    Aerogarden

    The Aerogarden includes a kit with six pods and a bottle of natural plant nutrients that will last a full season of growth. Plus, it's super easy to use as it will remind you when to add water and plant food. It automatically turns the lights on and off, so even if you don't have a green thumb, you can grow herbs at home.

    Promising review: "I bought this for myself for Christmas and absolutely love it!!! In just 2 weeks, I already have herbs growing and can’t wait to see the daily progression." —Kdodgen

    Get it from Aerogarden for $129.95 (originally $179.95; available in three colors and four seed kit options). 

    10. A Rifle Paper Co. printed rug because if you've been eyeing this beauty for a while now, this is your sign that you need it in your life. It's beautiful, will add some warmth to the room, and make you extremely happy when you look at it. OK, maybe this is just me convincing myself to finally hit "add to cart."

    Rifle Paper Co.

    Get it from Rifle Paper Co. for $90+ (available in six sizes).

    11. A set of blackout curtains because I'm sure you loved all the natural light that came with your home, that is, until it woke you up at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. These curtains will make sure that you get your much needed beauty rest no matter how bright it is outside.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I finally invested in blackout curtains for my room and my kids' room, and now I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner! These curtains do exactly what they are supposed to do. My kids are early risers, usually getting up when the sun comes up. Today, I was able to sleep until 9:30 because they were still in bed! I woke up not even knowing what time it was because my room was still so dark, haha! These especially made a huge difference in my room which faces the side of the house the sun rises on. These curtains are silky feeling, which I wasn’t expecting, but it gives a sleek appearance. I highly highly recommend this brand." —Jessica Duvall

    Get it from Amazon for $16.01+ (available in 17 sizes and 25 colors).

    12. A beautiful full-length mirror with a curved edge for an added bit of elegance in your home that will also make the room feel bigger.

    harmati

    Promising review: "I love this mirror because I have three options for use. It can be wall mounted, which is probably the way I’ll go eventually but my walls are the kind you try to hang anything and they just crumble, so until I can get a professional to hang it, I will use the free standing option. I wanted a mirror for my home gym, which would be the only full-body mirror on the bottom floor of the house. It arrived packaged nicely in Styrofoam and no damage. The only thing I had to do in order to make it freestand was hook on the included bars with the screws and was set to go. The freestanding version also has a clothing bar in the back, great bonus!! It is huge and a really nice-quality mirror. Love the curved top as it gives it some elegance. Also, if this mirror ever did crack, its shatterproof; it would not spread huge shards everywhere, so I felt better about that. Overall, I’m pleased with this mirror and its quality." —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon or harmati for $169.99 (available in four colors). 

    13. A silverware tray because just letting your utensils sit in a pile really shouldn't ~slide~. This will let you keep them all together and looking oh so nice.

    Long rectangular tray in grey with four different sections with silverware in each
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these! I bought two for a standard silverware set to fit in my drawer that is 3 inches deep. This way, they are not overloaded. They are compact and look so nice. I had plenty of room for another tray to keep things organized. I recommended to a friend, and she purchased two as well!" —Alexandra Harkins

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24.

    14. An acrylic plant hanger made to fit in your windowsill so you have a place to not only store your ~growing~ collection of plants, but also display them.

    The three-tiered shelf holding nine plants
    Indoor Window Gardens / Etsy

    BTW — Indoor Window Gardens is a small, family-owned business based in South Carolina. The acrylic shelves come assembled, and you can secure them with a single fastener. 

    Promising review: "Not only do these shelves look amazing and give me so much more room for my plants but the customer service is amazing! I forgot to order extensions with my order so I contacted the shop and they helped me by making a special listing for the extensions. They placed them in my original order so everything came together. If you’re looking for a window shelf, this is it!!" —Jamie Miner

    Get it from Indoor Window Gardens on Etsy for $74+ (available in three styles and five mounting options).

    15. Bed bands that'll work super hard to keep the corners of your fitted sheet in place so they don't pop off and try to escape every chance they get. Plus, this means you won't have to fight to get the sheet on all four corners as often — that itself is a chore.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets, and with queen sheets, I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY...SINGLE...NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Get a pack of four bands from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four pack sizes and five colors).

    16. A shoe cabinet made to hold more than 30 pairs of shoes and keep them all looking neat and not cluttering up the entryway of your home.

    Wayfair, Yanqing / Wayfair

    Promising review: "This is a great piece of furniture. I have an efficiency apartment, and I can put in over 35 pairs of shoes if some of them are flats. It is deluxe shoe storage! The five shelves that are open can display or store something else and then you have hidden shoe storage." —Marissa

    Get it from Wayfair for $222.74 (originally $308)

    17. Or a vertical shoe tower if your space is smaller but you still want a place to put your shoes as soon as you walk in the door.

    The tiered tower holding seven pairs of shoes
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is perfect for what we are looking for. It had to fit in a smaller space and served to stop a puddle of shoes from forming at the doorstep. I am glad that we have smaller feet/shoes though as the spaces are a bit narrow. There are only two larger spaces that would work for high-top shoes or heeled boots. All the other spaces fit flats or low sneakers well." —Sara C.

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99+ (available in three colors and two sizes).

    18. The Pink Stuff, which is an all-purpose paste that works to clean basically everything in your house. This means you can go from scrubbing a pan to making your muddy rain boots look brand new in one swoop — no changing of cleaning products required.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny." —Nancy F.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90.

    19. Some shelf dividers providing you the chance to stack clothing and linens in the whole shelf without them toppling over, creating an even bigger mess. And when you want to grab that specific shirt at the bottom of the pile, you'll be super grateful to have these.

    Promising review: "If you need to Marie Kondo your closet, this is really useful and it looks really nice. I got the grey ones. Bought two to see how they were. Perfect. Bought six more. Loving it!!! Really recommended this product, ready to install and very sturdy." —Nicolò R.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.34.

    20. A FURemover Broom that works to remove pet *and* human hair from deep in your carpet that your vacuum can't reach. Plus, it has a squeegee edge so you can also use it to clean your shower, windows, and even car windshield. We love a multipurpose product!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This sucker is magic. I bought mine three years ago and it still works. I use it to scrape up the dog hair that gets embedded in my living room rug. (We have two basset hounds who are constantly shedding.) The vacuum gets a lot of it, but even after I run the vacuum I can drag this broom over the rug and drag up entire piles of dirt and fur that were missed. It's also great on my kitchen tile. We have a dog door in our kitchen, so our two bassets are always dragging in dirt and making messes. This works better than a broom because it works like a squeegee — nothing gets caught in the broom fibers, and it can clean up damp/wet messes as well." —yetanotherstephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    And read one BuzzFeed Shopping editor's full review of the FURemover Broom here.

    21. A peace vase, or in other words, the new focal point of whatever room it's in. This beauty will bring you so much joy every time you look at it.

    Jungalow

    BTW — Jungalow is a Black woman–owned business founded by Justina Blakeney filled with home collections designed in Los Angeles. For every purchase, at least two trees are planted.

    Get it from Jungalow for $79 (available in eight colors). 

    22. A floating shelf to transform all your favorite novels and cookbooks into works of art you can enjoy every single day because, let's be honest, are you really ever going to get around to reading every single one of them?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I'd highly recommend!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get it from Amazon for $21.80+ (available in five sizes and variations and in silver and white).

    23. A flat outlet plug to help you eliminate the clutter and eyesore of the mess of cords around your plugs and give your space a sleek and clean look.

    Promising review: "This was very easy to install to hide all the messy wires. This is life changing to create a nice, sleek space." —Martha Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in five different lengths/configurations).

    24. An overflow drain cover here to solve the bath problem where you just can't seem to get the water deep enough for you to fully relax and enjoy after a long day. This cover allows you to add a couple of extra inches of water, something that reviewers say makes ALLLL the difference.

    reviewer in tub filled up high with water and bubbles
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I received this yesterday; installed it last night. Took my first bath with it today, and boy, does it work. I did not rate whether it’s easy to remove or clean, as I haven’t done those yet, but I don’t see why either would be an issue. If you’re an avid bath-taker like I am (baths are needed sometimes to warm up during our cold Wisconsin winters) and are tired of the water level going down as quickly as you’re trying to fill it, I definitely recommend this. My only complaint is that I should’ve bought the sooner… I’ve spent years and years using strips of old rags, sponge materials, etc. to try to keep the water from seeping out (which results in smelly, moldy material), but this works like a charm." —HeartStar14

    Get it on Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    25. An O-Sheet! specifically designed to hold one complete set of sheets because no one (and I mean no one) enjoys trying to fold their extra fitted sheets to make them look nice in the linen closet. Instead, all you have to do is put the sheets into the fleece, and use the drawstring to close it. Plus, it has an indicator strap so you always know what size sheets are in it. How genius is that?

    Bumble Made / Etsy

    BTW — Bumble Made is a woman-owned small business that specializes in this one product to help transform your linen closet.

    Promising review: "These are the greatest things! I love them — so excited not to dread changing sheets on the beds anymore…or fear opening the linen closet. Thank you for the wonderful product!" —Ashby Dawson

    Get it from Bumble Made on Etsy for $19.21 (available in seven colors).

    26. A vacuum hose attachment you actually attach to your vacuum to suck out all the dust, lint, and other debris that's hiding in your dryer. This 2.5-foot kit will get in there deep and remove so much stuff you'll be shocked how your dryer has even worked up till this point.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Honestly, we are speechless! We are excellent about cleaning the lint trap after every load of clothes. We even clean the lint vent outside. But nothing could have prepared us for the amount of lint and gunk trapped in the vent tubing! How we have never had a fire, we have no idea. We vacuumed forever all the way up the vent tube, which we could have in no way done without this item. The suction power was unbelievable! We could not believe how bad the tubing was clogged. Just look at the picture. We removed about 3/4 of a kitchen garbage bag size of lint and gunk! It was amazing and embarrassing! It’s SO inexpensive, but it could literally save you from a house fire! Anyway, just buy it. Excellent value! You won’t be sorry!" —Brian Mattix/Elizabeth Bodnam

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in six colors).

    27. A dresser mirror actually made so the bottom is flat, meaning it will fit on top of your dresser perfectly and give the room the pop that it deserves.

    This mirror is designed to work with the dresser in the picture, but it is compatible with other dressers, as well. 

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $249 (originally $299). 

    28. A cord organizer to help you hid any messes that accumulate from plugging in all your devices that are a total eyesore in the room.

    Promising review: "I had a mess of cables on the table next to my bed, and if you pulled one too much, the chargers would fall. This keeps everything in place. It is very LARGE, I didn't expect it to be that big, but it holds a full-size surge protector, and I'm able to plug in everything in there! It's very helpful!" —Patrick Pflaumer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors).

    29. A slide-out storage tower so you can ~squeeze~ the most out of your kitchen even if you have less cabinet space than you thought was possible.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This storage tower is awesome and such a space saver. I live in a small apartment with little cabinet space, so I used this tower for my spices right in between my stove and refrigerator. It was also the easiest thing to assemble (no tools required)!" —S.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.10.

    30. Shower curtain rings with two separate hooks so you can hang both your curtain and liner separately. Not only will the curtain open and close smoother, but you'll be able to remove them easily when it's time for a cleaning. Which reminds me...it's probably time to clean my shower curtain. 😬

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of those items you didn’t know you needed, and once you get it you can’t help but wonder you ever managed before. I absolutely hate taking the shower curtains off because of the whole open and close for multiple shower curtains. I know you’re like, ‘It’s just shower curtain hooks.’ And it is. But when you have to change out the creepy shower liner, that likes to attack you, and you dread doing so, this just adds seconds to your life. No more unsnapping. Simply take out the liner, place the liner on the appropriate hook, and presto." —Nardsbaby

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in eight finishes).

    31. A set of silicone stove-counter gap covers I'm really upset I haven't had in my home for years now because these stop all those tiny crumbs from falling down the crack, and that is so so so impossible to clean up! *shakes fists in the air*

    Reviewer's picture of the gap cover placed between their stove and counter
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been using these for about a week on my new freestanding range. When they removed my old range, I was really surprised to see how much stuff had slipped through! Now when I cook, I can see the splatters and seasonings left on the silicone that would have fallen between the stove and the counter. These gap fillers really do clean up easily, too. Although they are that extra thing to clean, I prefer that to knowing there's a mess hiding in the cracks." —JMom

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    32. A CovoBox made to look like a stack of books, but it's actually hollow on the inside, so you can use it to cover your Wi-Fi router that's awkwardly sitting out. Say goodbye to clutter and hello to beautiful (and functional) decor.

    Before adding this to your cart, you have the option to customize it, including selecting from 14 lengths and 15 colors (including custom colors). The CovoBox is made from reclaimed books and sustainable wood.

    BTW — Covogoods is a small, family-owned business creating home decor in Utah!

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved a purchase from Amazon as much as I love this one, and I’ve been a Prime member since Day 1. This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus, it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. And the customer service was great and responsive. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this but after years of living with the husband’s pile of technology, the money was well spent!" —AmazonEmme

    Get it from Covogoods from Amazon Handmade for $29+.

    33. A three-tier bamboo rack you can hang on the wall or keep on the ground, but either way, it will give you a place to organize random things and make your home feel less cluttered.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Recently removed the radiators out of my old house, and the bathroom had a narrow space that just looked empty. This fit perfectly, providing much needed storage, and keeps the room from looking cluttered. Easy to assemble and sturdy enough that I am not afraid of it falling apart. Love this!" —Amber Kuhn

    Get it from Amazon for $28.22+ (available in three colors).

    34. A stone diffuser reviewers say is extremely quiet *and* blends in with the decor, meaning you'll get all the benefits of having a diffuser in your home without having a clunky thing just sitting out. This will add such a luxurious feel to your home.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a very classy-looking diffuser that goes great with the decor in my house. It’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It’s not too big, so it doesn’t look bulky in a room, but it’s also not too small where it doesn’t diffuse the scent throughout the space. It was very easy to set up, and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in five colors).

    35. Light-dimming stickers to, once and for all, put an end to the small lights coming from your TV, Wi-Fi router, or whatever else you have in your room that keeps you up at night.

    amazon.com

    You get a set of 100 stickers made to fit all sorts of electronics, so you can find the ones that will work perfectly for you.

    Promising review: "Ingenious little idea. I suffer from migraines, so I know how a little LED light can irritate you in an otherwise pitch-black room. This product does a great job of dimming those harsh LED indicators that EVERYTHING seems to have nowadays. They are neat, not unsightly." —Jarom A. Daszko

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $4.99.

    36. A five-drawer pivot cabinet where the drawers turn outward, showing you what's inside. This storage station will add some color to the room and be a fun way to store all those odds and ends you're not sure what to do with.

    Promising review: "The pivot cabinet is just as pictured and described. It works perfectly for us as overflow storage for small things and looks good enough to be in the living room." —Marta

    Get it from MoMa Design Store for $295 (available in three colors). 

    37. An outlet light so you can add a little bit of light to the room without having to get a big and bulky night-light. And when your turn the lights off at night, you won't end up running into a door you def thought was closed but it was too dark to see...take it from me, that's no fun at all.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't like night-lights because they take up the wall outlet, so this was the perfect solution. I put it in the guest bath and at night with the bathroom door open this provides just enough light to guide a person to the bathroom without blinding them. I ended up putting two on my hallway switches as well. What a great product." —LMK

    38. Some vinyl measurement conversion decals so you don't have to stop mid-recipe to Google "how many cups are in one quart," because who can ever remember if it's 3, 4, or 5???? These fit perfectly on the inside of a cabinet, so your cheat sheet can stay discrete and ready for you at a moment's notice. This isn't high school anymore.

    Promising review: "Put them on my cabinet and my friends/relatives think I am a genius! So handy, just open the door and there they are, no thinking involved! Don't know that my baking taste will be any better but I can't blame it on incorrect measurements anymore!" —Toady

    39. A three-tier rack with a minimalist design that will actually help you ~maximize~ your space by giving you a place to store and display everything from shoes to books to plants, and everything in between.

    You can also get the storage bins, as shown in the picture above if you need to get even more organized. 

    Promising review: "It's perfect. I use it beside my bed to store shoes, but on the top shelf, I have added several other personal items. The shelves have depth." —BRAD Z.

    40. A toilet night-light designed with a sensor so it will turn on as soon as you stumble into the bathroom, eyes closed. You won't have to turn on the light, which always wakes you up, causing it to take longer for you to fall back asleep.

    It is an LED light and has 16 colors that can either be solid or rotate between all of them. 

    Promising review: "This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don't need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it's going to be a problem...isn't. I can't recommend this toilet night-light highly enough, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December." —Wandergurrlee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    41. A sectional with ✨storage✨ you can customize to fit your space and your needs. But this beauty deserves to be the center of your living room — you'll be able to lounge in style in comfort. Something that we've all learned is a very important thing over the last 18 months.

    Promising review: "I kind of ordered this sofa 'blindly.' I'd been eyeing Joybird for years and never went for it. Wow, am I glad I did! We have four kids, and this sofa fits all of us comfortably! One downside...it's WAY too easy to fall asleep on it! We will be purchasing another one for our media room!" —Celeste F.

    Get it from Joy Bird for $4,413 (available in multiple customized sizes and 18 fabrics).
