    31 Things To Get You Voted "Most Likely To Survive Adulthood"

    Aka paying bills, meal-prepping, and keeping your home...clean.

    1. A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet so you're never again caught without a clean dish to eat from (goodbye paper plates). All you have to do is slide it from side to side to keep track of your dishwasher status.

    2. Bedsheet fasteners to help you neatly make your bed (possibly for the first time in your life). The metal clips grasp onto your fitted sheet so it stays in place no matter how much you toss and turn.

    3. A subscription to Home Chef's meal delivery service, because maybe you haven't mastered the whole meal-prepping thing just yet, but you are still devoted to eating nutritiously. And Home Chef will take the guesswork out of grocery shopping.

    4. Charcoal air fresheners for your shoes or gym bag that'll banish all smelly smells that embarrassed you in the past. They'll absorb excess moisture, preventing mold, mildew, and bacteria build-up.

    5. An 11-piece, non-stick Tasty cookware set that'll help you whip up the most delicious meals so you can minimize that Seamless bill. Hello, meal prepping.

    6. A high quality Tuft & Needle foam pillow, because those pancakes you slept on throughout college aren't cutting it anymore! This ventilated pillow will keep you cool, won't need constant fluffing, and will mold to the shape of your head.

    7. A pack of Mighty Patch hydrocolloid acne-absorbing patches to suck out all the pus and gunk from stubborn adult acne. Oh, you thought breakouts were just a teenage thing? Sigh.

    8. A mold and mildew gel remover that'll banish all grossness from the nooks and crannies of your bathroom. And yes, this task is up to you. The days of your mom cleaning your bathroom are long gone.

    9. Bottle-cleaning tablets to keep your water bottle sparkling, because hydration is actually a big fad of adulthood (who knew?!). These tablets are chlorine-free, require no scrubbing, and clean all types of containers.

    10. An incredibly effective, fume-free oven cleaner that'll cut through baked-on spills and grease so you don't shock guests the next time you open the oven during a dinner party. You host dinner parties now, remember?

    11. Divider sticky notes so you can keep track of all your errands, appointments, lunch dates, and shopping lists flawlessly. These tabs will transform your current planner into a multi-sectional dream.

    12. A counter-sized LED Aerogarden to turn your meals into fresh, herb-infused masterful creations because you've now graduated past ramen and chicken nuggets. The device will even remind you when to water and feed your plants.

    13. A handheld steamer that'll upgrade your business attire from wrinkled mess to professional in mere minutes. The steamer takes 30 seconds to heat up and can be used for 15 minutes at a time.

    14. How To Not Kill Your Houseplant, a guide so you can keep your precious plants alive past a few weeks. Think of it as a step before a pet or a baby. If you can keep a plant alive, you probably will have more luck with a breathing human being!

    15. A Hamilton Beach five-quart slow cooker to minimize time spent worrying about what to eat for dinner each night of the week. All you've got to do is add your ingredients, set the temperature setting (high or low), and select how many hours you want the meal to cook.

    16. A Quip electric toothbrush that'll help you stay on top of your dental routine, because the manual one you've been using is definitely not effective enough. This toothbrush even provides fresh and clean heads every three months via a subscription.

    17. A drain clog remover so you don't have to drop big bucks (that you may not have yet) on a plumber. It'll snake its way through your drain, grabbing hair and grime with its textured edges along the way.

    18. A wall-mounted mail and key organizer to prevent the infamous "where the heck are my keys?" search just as you're about to head out the door. This one has five hooks and two pockets for important bills.

    19. An ethylene gas absorber so your produce stays fresh for two to three times longer than normal, saving you money on your grocery bill. And not to mention time, since you won't have to pick up yet another container of strawberries.

    20. A set of interlocking organizers to keep that infamous junk drawer clean so you don't have to spend an hour searching for a pack of nails, Tide pen, or superglue.

    21. A monthly budget planner that'll help you stay on track with your bills and expenses, leading to a less stressed you. You can record your financial goals, your strategy for the month, bill amounts, and total dollars spent.

    22. A guide to wine so you can navigate your next alcohol purchase like a complete pro instead of guessing what bottle of red to enjoy with dinner. And to impress your friends and family with at the next sit-down meal, obvi.

    23. A cold-brew maker, because buying another cup from Starbucks is slowly killing your wallet, although you most definitely need caffeine. The overall design is sleek with few parts so really, you can't mess the process up.

    24. A set of organic wool dryer balls so you can reduce your drying time by 20-40%! And with minimal wrinkles, you won't have to iron items post-dryer.

    25. A Rubbermaid produce saver that'll lengthen the life span of your groceries by regulating the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and preventing moisture build-up, slowing down the spoilage process. Now you'll actually get your money's worth of all those fruits and veggies you buy every week, even when you barely get around to eating them on-time because you break and order Seamless. Woops.

    26. Folex spot remover you can use on carpets, upholstery, and clothing — it'll instantly lift stains without the need for scrubbing or vacuuming. Yes your precious pupper just vom'ed on the floor with zero warning, but at least you are prepared.

    27. An over-the-door organizer ideal for cleaning products. I can hear your mom squealing with glee, because organized cleaning products mean you may actually start successfully cleaning your home without her help.

    28. A paper shredder, because identity theft is not a joke, Jim!!! But seriously, this machine will help dispose of paid bills and old credit cards so you don't have to worry about someone stealing your bank account number.

    29. A basic home tool kit so you can handle small repairs without having to call a handyman. It's like a right of passage of adulthood that you start fixing this on your own.

    30. And a 321-piece first aid kit to help you handle whatever cuts, bumps, and bruises life may throw at you. Hey – you've made it this far, so pat yourself on the back. But stay prepared, too. Smart, not silly, remember?!

    31. A Delta shower head so you can increase your water pressure to something substantial without even wasting water. The self-cleaning nodules mean you don't need to spend extra time cleaning lime and mineral buildups. Water pressure that actually washes out your shampoo and conditioner fully? Bless.

    When you graduate college and officially cross that line into adulthood:
