    1. If (like me) your workday duties have turned you into an accidental serial plant killer, this water-saving gel has got your back.

    2. Aside from looking adorable, these spinner rings have really helped fidgety customers to unwind.

    3. This ridiculously well-designed pillow is perfect for people who sleep on their side or back, so you'll be sure to wake up on the right side of the bed.

    4. Cooking dinner becomes an Olympic medal-worthy sport for me by around Wednesday, so it's a good thing this microwave pasta cooker basically does all the hard work for me.

    5. Prevent those annoying bra strap marks with these silicone cushions (because nobody deserves to face the Red Imprints of Pain after a day's work).

    6. I was honestly sceptical about this hair growth oil until I read its rave reviews! Folks say it really will deliver thicker, longer locks, meaning you can make the most out of your mid-week wash day.

    7. Sick of pouring a glass of wine out for yourself after work only to realise it's gone off? Same. You'll be able to keep your opened wine fresh for up to a week(!!) by using these vacuum stoppers.

    8. You'll be able to julienne carrots in no time with this genius OXO peeler (because honestly, chopping veg is the worst part of cooking).

    9. Sorry, but your kitchen basically isn't complete without these reusable stretchy silicone lids – especially if, like me, your diet becomes 99% leftovers as the week progresses.

    10. Duzzit's (bloody massive) bottle of baking soda does pretty much every cleaning task you can imagine, and it helps to neutralise odours too! It's a great leave-on-and-go-about-your-day treatment – I like to leave a baking soda paste in my oven overnight for a low-hassle deep-clean the next day.

    11. This nifty lil' 20-litre bin has an odour-proof lid, making it perfect for bathrooms or kitchens. Its pedal can be accessed from three sides too, so it's perfect for chucking out your banana peels while you're simultaneously texting, carrying your bags, and attempting to rush out the door in something resembling a reasonable time.

    12. You can deep-clean and descale your loo at the same time with Dr. Beckmann's foaming solution – it pretty much does all the work for you, because you deserve better than deep-scrubbing a loo on hump day.

    13. You know when half of your bin liner falls into the bin and it makes removing the whole bag a *much* grosser process? Yeah, that won't happen with these bags that have elasticated tops.

    14. Being greeted by the smell of sandalwood and apple when you open the door sounds pretty elite, right? This plug-in air freshener from Glade will deliver that for up to 100 days from a single refill.

    15. If I ever seem distracted, it's probably because I'm thinking about this rushed morning-proof suction cup-backed toothbrush and razor organiser. I mean, the efficiency.

    16. Dr. Beckmann's carpet cleaner has become a cult-status cleaning product for a reason! It'll remove the Dreaded Patch from your soft furnishings in minutes, so you won't have to suspend normal living room life every time you spill a cuppa.

    17. This hanging shoe organiser is the best thing I've ever bought for my wardrobe and for my previously flustered morning routine.

    18. Making the perfect poached egg is just. So. Satisfying. These poacher bags will make it easier to cook up the perfect egg without those wispy egg white tendrils clouding up your pan!

    19. You can basically valet your vehicle for less than a tenner thanks to this interior shampoo. It works on all synthetic upholstery!

    20. If the skin at the base of your nails is looking a little dry, it might be time to try out this ridiculously cheap cuticle oil.

    21. I own this commute-friendly Contigo flask myself and can confirm it actually *is* leak-proof. It keeps my drinks at the right temperature for hours!
