    1. 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.

    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. 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!

    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. If you're finding adulthood to be a literal pain in the neck, it might be time to invest in this shiatsu back massager.

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

    8. If (like me) you're tired 24/7, you'll probably be pretty serious about your sleep. These adjustable gadgets will prevent your bed from shaking or squeaking. You can place 'em behind your headboard for some sound-free zzz's!

    9. 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!

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

    11. 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!

    12. 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!

    13. 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).

    14. 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!

    15. I'm pretty sure that anyone who remembers buying pic 'n' mix sweets from Woolworths has been craving something along the lines of this kilo of assorted chocolate goodies for years now.

    16. 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.

    17. 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!

    18. 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).

    19. 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.

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

    21. I never understand the phrase 'the straw that broke the camel's back' as deeply as I do when I spot deodorant stains on my freshly-washed shirt. Good thing Dr. Beckmann's stain remover is so effective, I suppose.

    22. And because cooking is probably the most draining task for me during the work week, I've got my eye on this two-in-one Joseph Joseph scoop and colander which means I can take pasta straight from the pot into my bowl.

    23. If (like me) that relentless piles of dishes is probably your most common stressor, this ruthlessly efficient Scrub Mommy sponge is here to help.

    24. As a chronic 'I don't know what to cook for dinner' girl, this Nigel Slater cookbook has become my ride-or-die.
