amazon.com

Promising Review: "These sheets are quite possibly the softest sheets that we've ever slept on! We absolutely love the feeling of them against our skin. They are soft and thoroughly comfortable. It is a pleasure to get into bed when these sheets are on it. The color is exactly as depicted on our computer monitor. We got the king size and they fit very well — precisely to size. The price is outstanding, particularly considering their exceptional quality. It's an all around-win for the buyer, and I would gladly purchase these again in the future. I recommend them highly!" —Michael Bailey

2. A memory foam and inner spring hybrid mattress! Double the technology for double the comfort.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This mattress is so unbelievably comfortable! The set up was extremely easy: just pull it out of the box, cut the plastic wrap an inch or so, and it pops like a can of biscuits. Stretch it out, give it a few hours, and it's complete. I ordered the 17" Belleze Premium Foldable Bed Frame to go with the mattress and I'm 100% satisfied. So much so, I will be purchasing two more of both mattress and frame." —Leslie Justice

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I saw the Scrub Daddy on Shark Tank and thought it was worth trying. Our family loves it! It does everything it guarantees to do. I use one for cleaning and washing vegetables, one for kitchen, and another for the bathroom. They last forever and you don't have leftover food hanging on the sponge like with other products. I would highly recommend this product. Once you try you will not go back to using anything else." —Sue

Price: $7.98

6. A hypoallergenic mattress topper that'll give you extra warmth and coziness throughout the winter.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I was looking to revitalize an older mattress, so I bought this mattress pad. It's exactly what I was looking for. Previously, I bought a memory foam pad that only exacerbated my back problems, while this topper provides just enough padding to make my mattress feel new again. It also has a deep pocket and will accommodate any size mattress." —Amanda Taylor

Price: $25.99 Sizes: twin-california king

Promising Review: "This is the only product I have ever found that totally removes scuffs, stains and dirt from my white countertops. Yes, of course I clean my countertops daily, and yes, they look clean. But then I use my Magic Eraser and gone are stains that I thought would never go away, and back comes the gleam. These erasers work just as well on woodwork, in the bathroom, on tile, and on just about everything. I honestly consider this a miracle product. My daughter took my advice and started using them in her apartment. She is a clean freak and cannot be without them now!" —Wendy Kaplan

It also allowed me to see what needed to be thrown away. I can't say enough how awesome these things are. I like that they can be broken down by unzipping the bottom. I like that there different types of containers. I use the ones with many small pockets for my underwear, the large one with the slats for my bras, and the skinny one with the slats for my socks. It's absolutely amazing." —Amazon Customer

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this cherry blossom tree! The color is gorgeous, and the branches are adjustable so you can maintain slightly different shapes to the tree.

Their customer service is top notch. Much appreciated!" —Jennifer

amazon.com

Promising Review: "We bought this air bed for our friend who stayed with us over the holidays and we are so impressed by it. The set up is extremely easy! Simply plug in the power cord the pump does all the work. The bed was inflated just under 5 minutes. It looks and feels like a real bed with a great 16" height. Most importantly, it stayed inflated the entire time. Taking it down is simple as well. You just turned the pump the other way and plug it in to deflate. We were able to fold and fit it into the carry bag that was included. Very impressed by the quality and price." —Amazon Customer

16. An LED backlight because having a backlit TV reduces eye strain and enhances the colors of the picture to make your binge-watching experience even more lit!

amazon.com

It plugs into the USB port on your TV so it's only lit when your TV is on.

Promising Review: "Works perfectly and definitely reduces strain on my eyes after playing several hours of video games and/or watching TV. The USB end that plugs into your TV may look a little weird and might not look like your standard USB but it definitely works. It plugged straight into my TV's USB port and fits snuggly. The cord does not wiggle or feel loose. This thing is so bright that it actually provides enough light in my living room to see in the dark in case I have to get up to look for the TV remote or just walk around the room without the fear of bumping into something because I can't see." —Hancock0451

Price: $9.99+

18. An accordion folder that can organize all the papers you have piled up around the house.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I've been using this folder for nearly two or three months and I'm a college student with a lot of papers to carry. I was looking for something cute, easy to carry, that fits manila folders, and overall keeps folders from getting crinkly. This DID IT. I can't express how much I love this -- I got a second one that is coming very soon! As I mentioned, I use manila folders for A LOT of things and even the divider for them is just below the strap that keeps the folder closed. Nothing gets crinkled or bent and it is great. I can throw loose leaf papers, folders, or even books/small notebooks in here. It's adorable and a great color as well. I got a lot of compliments on it! I highly recommend this folder." —Alexa Viz

Price: $7.99 Colors: eight

19. A tub and tile scrubber for scrubadubbing the tub.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Talk about a back and knee saver! This does exactly what it says, extends and scrubs. I have a shower not a tub. I have a very bad back and knees so getting on my knees to clean is out of the question. This has really made the job easy. I'm so thankful I came across this. I just add a little cleaner and scrub away all the dirt and grime." —Amazon Customer

Price: $12.99

20. A genius outlet shelf that may make you sadly wonder, "How do I not own this already and why didn't I invent it, dammit!"

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is just perfect. I took the outlet cover off and five seconds later the Power Perch was installed. I have used it twice already to charge an electric razor. Your electric charge cord comes up from below right through the opening and up to the Power Perch. I took a chance just seeing this on Amazon but I love it. I highly recommend this. It got my razor off the floor out of harms way." —Kevin B de Lacy

Price: $10.99

21. A sheet of 100 sound-dampening door bumpers to stop you from slamming cabinets when you're mad. I mean, you can still slam them but it won't be so loud.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I live in a studio where the neighbor’s kitchen cabinets are on my side of the wall. After enduring months of cabinet slamming, I finally decided to talk to my neighbors to resolve the problem only to find out they had no door bumpers, or at best the really flat ones. I checked my cabinets and had the same thing. I placed two orders. I gave one to my neighbors and used the other on my cabinets. They’re peel & stick, have a “nipple” cushion in the middle (mutes better than a flat surface), and a bargain. You get 100 for less than $12. At the home improvement stores you only get 12 for that price. It took me less than 15 minutes to install these on the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors and drawers. I even placed them on the top/middle/bottom of my sliding closet doors. Nice little treat in the box are picture hangers and little bumpers for frames to protect your walls." —Cleosaby50

Price: $4.83

22. A blackout curtain panel so the damn sun doesn't interrupt your slumber when you do have the luxury of sleeping in.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "These are my favorite curtains EVER. I first bought them for my son's room and I was amazed at how well they darkened the entire space! The quality is perfect. They are heavy curtains and are the same color on both sides. I bought my daughter a pair since her room gets the most sunlight and she was excited for nap time because I could "make the room dark". I plan on also getting these for my room and my living room. This is a MUST BUY! —Lindsey

23. A 30-pack of wooden hangers can make your closet look cleaner and more organized. No more mismatched hangers!

25. A pack of disposer and drain cleaners for freshening up one of the most forgotten places in your kitchen that is often the cause of bad kitchen odors.

26. A super-soft fleece blanket that just may make you want to start taking regular midday naps again. Seriously, check out how cozy this girl looks!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this fleece blanket! It is excellent quality and super soft and cozy. The grey color is gorgeous. I washed the blanket and it came out perfectly. No issues with shedding, pilling, or shrinking of fabric. I purchased the queen-size bed and it fits perfectly with extra fabric so it's not short on the sides. It feels absolutely wonderful on your skin. It's very hard to find a quality fleece blanket and this blanket definitely exceeds my expectations. I'm very happy with my purchase." —D Garcia

Price: $35+ Colors: 10 Sizes: four

27. A microfiber hand duster to clean off the years of dust you let pile up in hard-to-reach places. You no longer have the excuse that you can't reach them.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I never thought I'd buy a duster because I prefer to wipe down surfaces rather than flinging dust particles into the air, but this duster really does attract, pick up, and keep a hold on dust. It squeezes into narrow crevices and glides around my books and picture frames effortlessly and efficiently. The microfiber head slides on and snaps on securely with a button snap, and is easy to machine or hand wash." —DJW

Price: $9.99

28. A bottle of wood polish so you can revive your worn-down furniture and make it look good as new.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

Price: $7.98

30. A gel-infused green tea memory foam mattress that naturally fights odors and bacteria, because sleeping on green tea may be as awesome as drinking it.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I actually can't believe how much I like this mattress. It was super easy to set up and it is really comfortable. It is the just right in between for firm and soft. It is very supportive but doesn't feel like you are sleeping on a board. You also can't feel any movement from others in the bed. I will never buy an innerspring mattress again this thing is amazing!!!" —Sara Klein

Price: $84.99+ Sizes: twin-king

This product never leaves streaks or any type of residue behind. It genuinely gives your sink, microwave, faucets, and fridge a beautiful polished shine. I am thoroughly impressed by how quickly it work on removing water stains. It even covers up minor scratches by buffing the product into the area with the cloth they provide. I have nothing negative to say and once I run out I will definitely purchase more!" —Lola

Price: $12.99

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this sound machine!! It was bought for a puppy who routinely awakened at 4 a.m. 'screaming!' Since she started using her sound machine she now sleeps till 6 a.m. and awakens pleasantly! Best purchase ever (for the entire household)! The six different sounds are crisp and clear and very much authentic. Dixie prefers the bubbling brook sound! :). It's a great product! It's small enough to be portable yet loud enough to get the job done. This machine offers several optional timers, and comes equipped for battery operation and an AC adapter! I totally recommend this sound machine! :)" —Amazon Customer

It comes with a little loop on each corner so your duvet ties can loop through and be tied securely to the corners of the comforter!" —Jamie

36. A microfiber spray mop you can wash and reuse over 100 times! This should save you some serious cash.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I am in LOVE with this mop! I don't have to buy expensive cleaners, and no batteries required. Plus, I have the option of filling the liquid compartment with any cleaner or just water. It is tall enough that I am not in pain after mopping (I am very tall), and it sprays evenly every time. The washable cloths are wonderful and the disposable ones have been great for the bathroom and sticky messes in the kitchen. After buying numerous pricey mops, I have found my cleaning soul-mate!" —Nicole

Price: $23.99

37. A smartphone/tablet stand to prop up your phone so you can use it without wasting precious energy holding it. Lazy life hack!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Amazingly stable for such a small footprint. It performs as promised. It's infinitely adjustable by pressing and holding the button on the left while you adjust the angle. Release it and the angle locks in. The skid-proof bits on each of the bottom surfaces are firmly bonded and they stabilize the stand's location such that it will not slide about from slight touches or tilts, except that you lift it to move it. So far, I have used it with: Microsoft Surface RT, Kindle Fire 8", iPad Air 2, and my smartphone. The tray makes it easy to balance even the large, heavy Surface so that it's very stable. Excellent product." —M Estock

Price: $9.99 Colors: two

Promising Review: "This wireless mouse is perfect for the office. At my office, they only hand out wired mouses, which I continuously tripped over. So I went and purchased this one after reviewing all of the positive reviews. I am happy to say, that the reviews are justified given how amazing this product has been. It is really sleek, easy to use - since all you have to do is plug in the adapter, takes 1 AA battery, there is an easy on/off switch, and shuts off automatically when it is not in use. Highly recommend!" —Lucy Z.

Price: $9.95 Colors: 18

I also put a drop of essential oil on each dryer ball and my clothes smelled wonderful. This set is a great purchase and I definitely recommend it. I'll be purchasing more in the future!" —Roses_19

Price: $11.99

41. An orthopedic memory foam seat cushion designed to promote healthy posture. Your body is going to be thanking you for this!

You really can feel the difference. This is thick and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —PhillyGrl

Price: $29.95

42. A bath overflow cover that blocks the overflow drain on your tub allowing you to fill your tub higher and enjoy your tub time more fully.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I am so glad someone created this product. I've been wanting a way to keep the water from draining out the top drain when taking a bath. This sticks to the wall of the tub around the top drain, thus preventing the water from leaking out the top drain while bathing. This product works very well, and allows me to have the water up higher in the tub, and I don't have to listen to constantly draining water, for a nice, relaxing bath. It does have a hole on the side that you can place lower or higher, depending on how much water you want in the tub. This product gets two big thumbs up from me. I LOVE it!" —Joni

Price: $8.99

43. A super-soft and absorbent microfiber shag mat to make stepping out of the shower the best part of your day!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I really love this mat. It's simple and modern looking but I mainly love the soft little 'bristles' that are on it. It soaks up water well, and doesn't leak through at all." —Amy
