    1. A handle that'll make it *sooooo* much easier to carry all your groceries in one trip without almost breaking your back.


    Each handle can hold up to 50 lbs.

    Promising review: "I live in an upstairs apartment with 16 steps in a row up to my front door, and I have about a 40-yard walk from my car to the base of the steps. These handles allow me to EASILY tote all or most of all of my grocery bags from car to my apartment. Before I was using almost every finger on both hands to struggle the bags to my apartment, with some pain in some of my fingers." —Doubting Thomas

    2. A insect catcher to put some distance between you and the bug and make sure it gets safely out of your house without you screaming and running and giving it your home by default.


    Promising review: "This product has been a game-changer for us. Now my wife doesn't scream and yell for me every time she sees a critter. She'll grab the visiting spider and humanely drop it off outside, while always kept at a 'safe distance.' Haha."—Atif

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in four colors).

    3. Stila stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner that won't budge even if your boyfriend takes you out to dinner where you think he's going to propose, but he dumps you instead.

    stila Cosmetics / Via

    Don't worry, this eyeliner will look just as good when you graduate from Harvard Law School as valedictorian and he graduates with no job offers. 💁‍♀️

    Promising review: "At first I was skeptical as to why this eyeliner is 'so great,' but then one day, I decided to cry three times with this product on my eyes...let me just say, IT DID NOT BUDGE!! I have tried other felt-tip eyeliners, and they were really similar to this product, but this one has the absolute BEST staying power. For real. You will not regret buying this!" —Jay

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in two styles and 11 colors)

    P.S. This was our pick for best mid-priced liquid eyeliner on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    4. Bed bands 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.


    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 three colors and two sizes).

    5. A bug bite suction tool because bug bites ~suck~ majorly, but you can suction them away in minutes with this tool and get back to living your life instead of just going through the motions while you keep telling yourself, "Don't itch, don't itch, don't itch."


    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.93.

    6. A migraine headache stick you can toss in your bag and quickly grab when you feel a headache coming on to help stop it in its tracks before it ruins your whole day.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Years ago, a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches and nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT! I use it daily on my temples and the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune diseases that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils, etc., but this works!" —DVS

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    7. An EZ Off Jar Opener because I can't be the only one who has abandoned making dinner and simply ordered takeout because I couldn't get a jar open.


    This little gadget can not only open jars, but also other hard lids (like on plastic bottles). Just put it in the corner and twist for easy opening.

    Promising review: "I bought this last year and have used it many times on many different lids, even use it to open gallon milk jugs when those pesky plastic attachments just won't seem to give. I haven't found anything I try that it won't open for me. No more banging on the counter, just hold it under my cabinet and slid it in the V shaped opening, give it a little twist to open, hardly any effort at all. It was easy to attach under the cabinet, I put mine so the wide opening faces forward. I personally think every house should have one of these." —Addie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. An acupressure wristband to relieve nausea and keep motion or morning sickness at bay so you can go on with your day without feeling awful and fighting the urge to throw up.

    Promising review: "I don't write many reviews because I tend to have low expectations when searching online for much of anything. However, I am 9 weeks pregnant and the last 2 months have not been fun. I have morning sickness that lasts until about 2 pm. I got these wristbands two days ago and have worn them 16 hours out of the day. I know that seems excessive, but it literally keeps my gag reflexes at bay. These bands combined with some ginger tea or candy has helped me stay sane since I also work full time in the law enforcement community. I can't have a queasy stomach going to a crime scene (yipes). If you have mild nausea, motion sickness, or morning sickness, try these. If it works, its the best $7 you'll spend for a while. Stay healthy and safe my friends!" —DaniGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five styles).

    9. An Aquapaw slow treater designed to stick to the tiles in your bath/tub and provide your pup with a peanut butter treat, thus making bath time so simple. You won't end up covered in water, and your pup will think they won the lottery with that delicious treat. That's a win-win.


    Promising review: "We have a 30-pound lab mix rescue who hates water. Usually, she shakes and tries to escape the bathtub. With this product, she got distracted and stayed in place. We put peanut butter in it and froze it so that it would take longer. Having the nubs helps slow her down too. It stayed in place on our tub with the suctions. It's a basic product, but it works great." —book nerd

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    10. A BottleLoft aka magnetic strips that will hold beer bottles in place on the top of the shelf, thus making room for more food at the bottom and preventing you from having to decide between keeping the beer in the fridge or the raspberries. Both are important!!!

    Promising review: "This works great in my fridge. It's super strong and frees up space on the bottom. I only have an inch of clearance, but it does allow me to slide things under it, and I no longer deal with bottles falling over." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    11. A bottle of Iron OUT Rust Stain Remover that'll transform that bathroom you've been meaning to clean for months now...

    Just spray it on the rusted area, wait a few minutes, and rinse away to reveal the original surface.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48.

    12. A facial cleansing system with a cleansing brush that removes makeup, dirt, and anything else that's collected on your face during the day (don't think about it) so simply and easily you'll have no excuse to go to bed with your makeup on again.


    Promising review: "After seeing several Instagram influencers use this product, I decided to look for it. I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS! The bristles and each brush are so soft, and appropriate for various buffing and exfoliating needs. The box is a perfect size for storage. I noticed such a difference in my skin immediately. It looks much more even, with a nice glow. My skin feels smooth and honestly radiant. (I do like to use good products in combination with this tool, and I am very happy with the results). This is the best new addition to my skincare routine." —TipsFromTori

    Get it from Amazon for $28.39.

    13. A cooling and heating pad filled with buckwheat grains and lavender you can either microwave or put in the freezer for instant relief because it's not ~ovray~-acting when cramps come to ruin your life.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "The shape of this is ideal for period cramps (obviously), and it's so easy to use and it helps so so much (plus it's adorable and smells like lavender). The fallopian tubes are almost like perfect little handles to put it place, and it stays warm for a good while. If you're thinking of getting one for yourself or someone you know, it's well worth it." —Emma695

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    14. Slow cooker liners because half the reason I never use my slow cooker is the daunting fact that I might have to spend 20 minutes scrubbing the heavy pot afterward to get it clean. But these make cleanup a breeze, so excuse me while I go add them to my cart immediately...


    Promising review: "Why? Why would you want to scrub your giant Crockpot? Well, now you don't have to — these liners are the perfect solution for your Crockpot needs. Simply place it in your crockpot like you would a trash bag, add all of your ingredients, cook, and then when you're all done...just trash the liner! I've been using these for years, and I will never go back to scrubbing the tough cooked-on food from the day's cooking. I have never once had a liner with a leak and I really feel like Reynolds has helped make kitchen clean up so much easier with this smart product." —Katie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.53.

    15. Some Oh Yuck Jetted Tub System that's appropriately named because I bet that's exactly what you're going to say after you use it in your tub. And then you'll probably question how clean you got last time you took a bath..., Amazon

    Promising review: "Over the last few years I had noticed increasing problems with keeping my tub clean. Soap scum rings were forming within two days after cleaning the tub, and I was getting green and orange deposits on the bottom of the tub after the water dried. After using Oh Yuk, the amount of gunk that came out of the jets was truly appalling! It was an orange, sticky, mess. With this product, my tub stays cleaner and smells so much better! I was a little hesitant to try this product because I was afraid it might damage my acrylic tub. I emailed Oh Yuk and they got back to me immediately assuring me that the product is safe to use. It also has not harmed the bathtub finish or the pump seals in any way. I cannot recommend this product highly enough." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    16. An electric knife designed to make you seem like a pro when your friends show up for dinner and you cut the roast with ease.


    Promising review: "I bought this because I destroyed a rib roast while trying to carve it for a dinner party of 12 guests. I was so frustrated. I went out and purchased another rib roast for another dinner party two weeks later after receiving this electric knife. It cut through this rib roast as if it were butter. The individual portions could not have been prettier. It was restaurant quality. This electric knife is definitely something worth having in your kitchen, even if you were only using one several times per year." —Bobby Deneke

    Price: $25.49

    17. A pair of roll-up flats to stash in your purse (or small evening clutch) when you have to wear heels for a long period of time. With these, you can ~step~ out of discomfort and not suffer in the painful shoes for the rest of the night.

    Promising review: "I purchased these ballet flats because I hate wearing heels, but sometimes occasions happen where you must wear them. At a recent black-tie event, I hid these flats in my clutch. About 45 minutes in, I kicked the heels off my aching feet and put these on. I never took them off. Other women were jealous!" —Phyllis

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 31 colors).

    18. Some eco-friendly bamboo towels that'll replace six month's worth of paper towels so you can keep your home clean, feel good about the impact you have on the environment, *and* clean up spills and messes with ease.


    All you have to do when you're done using one is throw it in the wash!

    Promising review: "Not only are these the best paper towels I have ever used, but they are so stinking strong that I have been able to wash them several dozen times and they are still holding up! My baby doesn’t mind his face wipes with them and when we are done with them (after at least 100 separate uses), I can compost them! I have been recommending them to all of my family and friends." —Amazon Customer

    Get a roll of 20 sheets from Amazon for $8.99.

    19. A silicone baking mat that'll make baking a breeze and eliminate your need for oil, cooking, sprays, parchment paper *and* scrubbing the gunk off the pan after you're done cooking.


    Your food will come out looking and tasting delicious, plus you'll have a way easier cleanup. I call that a win-win. Each sheet measures 11.6 x 16.5 and is oven-safe up to 480°F.

    Promising review: "These have changed my life. They are wonderful, and I use them for everything. We roast vegetables about every night, and they make cleanup a breeze. If you do a lot of baking (e.g., cookies), I would maybe keep one for baking and one for cooking with fat as sometimes the grease/oil is a little hard to get off, but nothing ever sticks to them." —Heather K

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.99.

    20. And some pan scrapers to get your other kitchen products (skillets, pots, pans, etc.) clean with only a little bit of elbow grease.

    Promising review: "This product is an absolute must. I thought it would be fragile and end up breaking after a couple uses, but it has still stood strong against large quantities of carbon residue leftover from cooking. I highly recommend!" —Danny

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $2.54.

    21. A thumb thing that flattens a paperback book to help you read with one hand in your pocket...or while holding a subway pole...or a glass of wine. Priorities, am I right?


    Promising review: "If you ever read one-handed, you will find this to be awesome. However, make sure to take the time to measure your thumb, as you want it to fit snugly (or it will slip off), but not too snug (or you will lose feeling in your thumb). The sizing chart on the product page is accurate." —Flydoctor

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $7.95.

    22. An electric wine opener so you can uncork bottles in seconds, no struggling required.


    This removes corks in seconds, can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge, and has a built-in rechargeable battery.

    Promising review: "OMG! I LOVE this wine opener. It opens with ease. I don’t post many reviews, but this is definitely worth the money. I can't say enough good things about this wine opener. It comes with an awesome charging stand and foil cutter. Don’t waste your time on other electric wine openers. This is the one! I love it! The blue light is really cool too!" —Allison Parks

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    23. A tube of eyeshadow primer so your beautiful smokey eye looks just as good at the end of the night as it does when you spent all that time perfecting it. Touch-ups who?

    Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high-end to low — Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later.I have very oily skin. I use this primer and my shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

    Get it from Amazon for $13.06.

    24. Suguru, moldable glue that sets as silicone rubber to help you repair items that need a little extra love and attention.

    Promising review: "My Macbook Pro charger wire was starting to break so I got some Sugru to mend the damage. Absolutely incredible product that saved me like $70 to get a new charger. The only downside is each package is not resealable. Luckily I also had an iPhone cable and Apple earphones to reinforce. So basically, Apple, get your **** together and pack some Sugru with your products." —Leesankwok

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven styles).

    25. Makeup removing towels you just have to get wet (or add a bit of facial cleanser or makeup remover) to get your face squeaky clean in a matter of minutes., Amazon

    Promising review: "Sooo...I’m lazy when it comes to taking my makeup off, and I’m also cheap. So I decided to get this because, to be honest, it looked interesting and was a whole lot cheaper than throwing my money away on disposable wipes. Well, tonight I decided to do some fun Halloween makeup and it passed the test! Normal makeup is almost entirely gone and the stage type makeup that I did tonight came almost 95% off. Doesn’t fully get waterproof eyeliner or mascara off and pure black pigment takes a little scrubbing but take a look at the before and after If you don’t believe me!" —Elizabeth

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.49 (available in three styles).

    26. And some Death Wish coffee so strong, you won't have to suffer through a day tired ever again.


    But you've been warned. If you find yourself reaching for cup after cup, you'll only need one or two of this stuff. Plus, it's fair-trade and organic.

    Promising review: "Ok folks, words of warning, ration out your coffee. If you drink a 24 ounce Starbucks, you need an 8 ounce of this as your FIRST cup. I'm serious here, heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single-handedly raising the Titanic on your own, all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned." —ItsTheXFactor

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.
