    1. A flip top you attach to your bottles to make sure you get EVERY. LAST. DROP so you don't have to buy ketchup or salad dressing as often.

    2. A reusable silicone bag that will not only help you reduce your plastic use (and feel good about doing your part for the environment), but also keep your produce fresh longer in the fridge or freezer.

    3. A miracle plastic container with FreshVent technology to regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide to keep your berries fresh for up to 2 (!!) weeks.

    4. A fridge liner designed to help air circulate around produce so they don't spoil, and so you can enjoy the fruit you forgot you bought instead of buying new ones.

    5. A set of airtight containers you'll cereal-isly love when you wake up on Saturday morning and can have breakfast ready in a matter of minutes.

    6. A Fresh Flip lemon pod that'll keep both lemon halves and lemon slices fresh and ready for use.

    7. A freezer tray to store the extra herbs you buy when your recipe calls for four tablespoons of fresh parsley, but the grocery store only sells it in bushels meant to serve hundreds.

    8. A dish you ~butter~ believe will help help keep your butter nice and soft so you never have to spread hard butter on toast again. (Oh, the luxury!)

    9. A knife perfect for a peanut butter lover who wants to stop wasting all that deliciousness that's left in the jar a regular knife can't reach. This will extend the life of the jar!

    10. A salad spinner that'll get all the moisture out of your lettuce so your greens don't go bad immediately after you open them. *shakes fist in the air*

    11. A wine saver with two vacuum stoppers to reseal the bottle for the times when it's not in your best interest to finish the whole thing by yourself in one night.

    12. A Just Ripe fruit bowl that has three different areas to store fruits and vegetables that ripen at different rates.

    13. A set of airtight food storage containers to keep your pantry stocked full of fresh food because there's not much worse than thinking all day about eating a specific cookie and then getting home and realizing it's stale.

    14. A Bluapple produce extender that works for three months to keep your produce from wilting when your friend suggest happy hour that turns into dinner (even though you promised yourself you'd go home and make dinner yourself). With this, you know you food will still be as good to use tomorrow!

    15. An artisanal cheese storage container designed specifically to keep moisture away from your ~fancy~ cheese so it *stays* ~fancy~ till your next soirée.

    16. A bread box because, just like Oprah, we love bread (especially bread that doesn't go stale in one day). The lid on this is not air tight to give the bread the space it really needs to breath and stay crisp.

    17. A pack of reusable vacuum zipper bags to not ~suck~ out the life of your meat and cheese slices.

    18. An avocado holder you'll basically want to hug after you use it because it will keep your avocado from browning, and your avocado toast will never be the same.

    19. A Coffee Gator container with a valve designed to omit the natural co2 coffee needs to get out, but also stop oxygen from getting in and ruining your precious baby.

    20. A set of food huggers that fit on both produce *and* cans or jars, so you don't have to throw away that half can of black beans you don't know what to do with.

    21. A sack made of light-blocking cotton/linen to protect your root vegetables (potatoes, onions, shallots, etc.).

    22. A microwave popcorn popper and kernels that'll eliminate your need to buy bags of microwave popcorn again. Just fill the popper with kernels and in minutes you have delicious (and healthy) popcorn!

    23. A pack of eco-friendly beeswax food wraps that'll replace your need for plastic wrap. All you have to do is use the warmth of your hands to mold the wrap over a bowl, container, or food, and as it cools, it will create a seal to protect it.

    24. A Mico-Thermal bag resealer with a USB recharger that uses heat to create an airtight seal on all your chips, crackers, freezer food bags, and more.

    25. A brown sugar-softening bear you soak in water for 20 minutes and then place in your brown sugar to ensure that it stays moist and ready for use for three to six months.

    Me every time I attempt to go to the grocery store:

    Use some of the money you saved not buying groceries on cute home decor, cheap jewelry, or weird things on Amazon!
