    I Am Frankly Too Old And Too Tired To Ignore These 31 Life Hack Products

    I just think my cheap umbrella days are behind me.

    1. Something about taking your post-work dinner out of the oven only to realise that it hasn't cooked properly unlocks an anger within me I didn't know I had until a couple of years ago. This oven thermometer is ideal!

    2. These sealed storage bags are strong enough to hold liquids, like soup or chilli. They're ideal if the thought of chopping veg becomes too much to handle during the work week!

    3. If (like me) you're frankly too old and too tired to deal with unevenly-cooked sausages and hard-to-clean fat residue, these liners will soak up any excess oil.

    4. Cook your fish perfectly in next to no time with these oh-so-handy steamer bags.

    5. Not to be dramatic, but the thought of never wiping my ceramic hob down after cooking again sounds pretty heavenly. This heatproof protector offers just that!

    6. I never thought I'd get excited about some frying pan-friendly scourers, but here I am.

    7. If the thought of seeing one more tea stain on the floor near your bin puts you in a state of inconsolable rage, we have something in common. This teabag strainer is here to help!

    8. This nonstick crisping tray allows air to circulate around your food while it's in the oven, adding crunch without the oil (yes, please).

    9. Anyone who's old enough to take care of their own important documents will be glad they bought this password-protected lock bag. It's fireproof and water-resistant!

    10. I double-checked with my coworkers and it turns out that yes, we ARE all one weekly shop away from getting one of those carts our aunts swear by (they're convenient AF, okay?). This great-looking one folds up into a laptop-sized bag when it's not in use!

    11. I knew I was getting older when I became *genuinely* excited by the sheer size of this bin liner roll (I'm stocked up for MONTHS now, people).

    12. I'm sorry, but I refuse to accept scaly cups of tea now that I'm old enough to pay water charges. This descaling ball will keep your kettle limescale-free between deep cleans – simply drop it in and continue using your appliance as usual!

    13. If your bins always end up being put back in the wrong place, these personalised bin stickers will be worth their weight in unwritten passive-aggressive notes.

    14. Something happens to people after the age of 20 that just makes clean drawers seem... *chef's kiss*. This protective liner is really highly-rated!

    15. These transparent food canisters will help you to store your cereal in the most ~sophisticated~ way possible (because TBH, that opened box of bran flakes on top of the fridge isn't cutting it anymore).

    16. This silent dehumidifier will remove excess moisture from your room, because at this point it's a sacred space that belongs only to you and your Netflix account.

    17. Struggling to find a cover that'll keep your electric toothbrush clean? These Oral-B ones are ideal!

    18. These lil' cheat sheet magnets tell you how long common ingredients will take to cook in your Instant Pot.

    19. I can't believe I'm only finding out about these self-adhesive utensil holders now.

    20. Home cooks, let's just take a moment to appreciate these silicone baking sheets.

    21. One of the first hard lessons of adulthood is realising how expensive laundry detergent can be. This eco-egg solves that problem!

    22. This suction cup-backed blackout blind sticks *much* more firmly to my window than I'd expected.

    23. I thought this retinol eye cream was too cheap to work until I tried it.

    24. If you're sick of coming home to find out your charger has been left on all day for no reason (which, same), these timer sockets can help to lower your electricity bill and your guilt.

    25. These lavender-scented sachets will make your clothes smell better and keep moths at bay.

    26. You'll be able to cook up to four fluffy jacket potatoes in no time with this genius microwave gadget.

    27. This genius privacy film will block 96% of the UV rays that would usually come through your window. Customers reckon it helped to cool their home down almost as soon as they put it up!

    28. You can close the awkward gap between your hob and your countertop with these silicone strips.

    30. Allow me to introduce you to the best brolly I've ever tried.

    31. This nose hair trimmer gets it (look, I'm human, okay?).
