    32 Things You'll Literally End Up Using Seven Days A Week

    Did I mention how useful these products are?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A mini steamer so you never again have to pull out the ironing board for last-minute touchups. It'll produce steam in two minutes and last a full 15, so you can tackle your pants and shirt without having to refill the water tank.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am so happy to say I am clearing space in my house by getting rid of my ironing board and replacing it with this steamer! It is simple! You fill it with water, place the head on, turn it on, and steam! No more wet spots on your clothes from the steam in an iron. I just hung the shirt I was going to steam and worked from the top down. The bristles get out those big wrinkles with ease! So much faster than a normal iron." —kirby masters

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two colors).

    2. Cable clips to keep your wires organized and easily accessible throughout the day. You can peel and stick the clips to whatever surface, like your desk, bedside table, car dashboard, or kitchen counter.

    Amazon

    Since they're adhesive, you can take them off as easily as you'd stick them.

    Promising review: "These work insanely well for what there supposed to do. They have incredibly strong adhesive and will keep your cable in place. The rubber is a little harder than the competition making it harder to get the cables in but also harder to get them out. This ends up being a giant plus, making it so that all the cables stay in and don’t fall out." —Khalil

    Get six from Amazon for $5.87.

    3. A pack of tea tree and calendula oil–infused pimple patches that'll clear up breakouts overnight by sucking out all the gunk and pus trapped underneath the skin. Gone are the days of freaking over your latest blemish.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself, and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get 40 patches from Amazon for $8.50.

    4. Charcoal teeth whitening toothpaste to whiten teeth naturally while also killing bacteria that causes bad breath. It won't strip away enamel, but will instead aid in gum health. It's also peroxide-free and vegan!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This toothpaste really made the difference! My teeth went to yellowish tone to pretty white by the seventh day. And by the end of the second week, they looked even brighter than I considered possible. I can't stop smiling! Also, it is very nice that it vanishes bad breath. I mean, it just goes away. The minty sensation is good and stays for a while , but even after that wears off, I can still feel my mouth is nice and clean." —Camila P.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in two flavors).

    And check out our picks for the best teeth whiteners on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    5. An internet address and password book, because you forget your numerous usernames and passwords every darn day. Now you'll finally have one place to list every single one out, but pro tip — keep this in a very safe place!

    Peter Pauper Press

    Promising review: "Since it is spiral bound inside the cover, it lays flat when opened. The back of the book has a registry of Internet Service Providers, home network settings, software license numbers, and several pages for notes. There is an elastic band vertically down the back which you can stretch over onto the front to keep the book closed, especially nice for your purse or briefcase. The paper is a substantial grade for the purpose and is cream shade, much easier on the eyes. Everything considered, this is a terrific register and should contain everything one would need." —eve

    Get it from Amazon for $6.07.

    6. Microfiber makeup removing cloths with refined edges so your skin will never get scratched or irritated after use. All you need is water to get the job done, and when the cloths are dirtied, you can pop them in the washing machine.

    Amazon

    They can be used on all skin types and are safe for your eye area.

    Promising review: "These affordable washcloths are the softest things I have ever touched! They are so gentle and amazing on your face. I use one to dry my face and help remove leftover makeup after washing and another to remove eye makeup. I am saving SO much money by not having to buy disposable cotton pads and bottled makeup remover each month. These take off all my eye makeup with JUST water! They are very thick and like a large washcloth size. I love that they have no seams or edges and no tags for all-over comfort." —Dan K.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two color combinations and as a pack of six).

    7. Adhesive underarm sweat pads, because we've all suffered from some intense perspiration stains. They're ultra-light, hypoallergenic, and non-scented. They'll keep you dry, no matter the level of activity or weather outside.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm relatively new to using shirt guards and was very impressed by these. They worked very well – were easy to apply, stayed on all day, were absorbent, and also were easy to remove at the end of the day. Goodbye deodorant stains, goodbye sweat stains! Just remember to take them out before you put your clothes in the wash." —Lulu Walker

    Get 80 from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. Cushioned inserts for the backs of shoes that always annoyingly rub up against your skin and cause blisters. The silicone material is soft against your skin and moves with you, unlike other fabric inserts.

    Amazon

    With your purchase, you'll also receive 12 gel spots. You can use the gel spots on areas around your toes that rub uncomfortably.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with these! I love how many pieces you get with the order, in case you need multiple at once. They are very comfortable and easy to use, and do exactly what they're supposed to do!" —Stacy

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two colors).

    9. A bottle of rosehip oil packed with antioxidants to brighten your complexion and get rid of any blemishes or dry patches. It can be used both morning and night after cleansing your face and is made for all skin types.

    amazon.com

    It only takes two to three drops to get the job done, so the bottle will last you a very long time!

    Promising review: "This oil is amazing! It has evened out my skin tone, balanced my oily and dry patches, and cleared up blemishes all in only two weeks of use. This is the best my skin has ever looked. I lather it on generously every night, and again in the morning. The oil does have an orange color, but once it is absorbed into the skin, you can't notice." —Alyssa

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    10. A pack of beeswax wrap so you can store leftover foods without spoilage. The warmth from your hands will soften the wrap around whatever you want and then cool to create a natural seal.

    Amazon

    To clean, just run it under cold water and let air dry. One wrap lasts about a year when used numerous times a week.

    Promising review: "Upon initial use I was very curious as to whether these would hold up upon multiple uses, turns out they are extremely easy to wash and reuse! We bought these to cut down on plastic and aluminum wrap waste that we have been using to preserve leftover foods in our refrigerator. I do not have a doubt in my mind that these will last multiple months and beyond. However, I would not suggest using them for raw foods, which could contain bacteria such as raw chicken or other meats; if not washed carefully bacteria may be transferred. Overall this was a pretty solid buy, and it makes us feel great about our mission to cut down on household waste!" —aaronwrex42

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $17.45+ (available in eight styles).

    11. An 18-ounce insulated stainless steel bottle to keep you hydrated day in and day out. With a double-wall design, it'll keep your morning coffee hot for up to eight hours and iced tea cold up to a full 24 hours! And the silicone carry loop can nestle into the cap or pop up for easy use.

    Goodful

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, sold exclusively at Macy's for $13.99 (originally $28.99, use code FRIEND for 30% off, available in three colors).

    12. A dish squeegee since everyday there's a new dirty dish in the sink just waiting to be cleaned. Its curved shape will conquer bowls, while its study grip allows for thorough cleaning of baked-on grime.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s one of those things you feel silly buying and then use every single time you wash dishes. I love how it gets all the sauce or grease from plates. It’s bendable at the ends, so it can really curve to fit your dishes. Love it." —Danielle Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    13. A NYX setting spray to finish off your day's makeup application. It'll mattify your foundation and prevent things like humidity and sweat from ruining your look. AMEN.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The lightweight formula will help to reduce shine and works well with powder and eye makeup.

    Promising review: "This spray is everything! Like, oh my gosh. I notice the difference if I forget to spray this on. I've walked through the humid city of New Orleans in the middle of July and my makeup stayed on from the time I got to work and was mostly still there by the time I got home, which was nine hours later. I can't rave enough about this, and I'm very picky when it comes to makeup." —missyj95

    Get it from Amazon for $5.19.

    14. Traceless Invisibobble hair ties that'll get rid of that annoying ponytail crease that always forms once your hair has been pulled back for a while. It won't cause tangles or catch your hair, so no more painful pulling!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It sounds like hyperbole to say that these hair ties changed my life, but it's true. I sleep with my hair in a messy topknot using these elastics every night. In the morning, I just take my hair down, run a brush through it, and that's it. My hair is done, and more voluminous than ever before. I do have pretty low-maintenance hair in general (long, naturally straight) but I never thought it could be THIS EASY." —Rachel P.

    Get three from Amazon for $5.94+ (available in seven colors).

    And click here for our full review of the traceless hair ties.

    15. Oil-blotting sheets so you never again have to worry about a greasy face halfway through the day. One sheet will soak up any excess shine, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.

    amazon.com

    And they won't strip away your makeup in the blotting process! Trust me – I own these and use them everyday. They're a great way to touch-up if you're feeling extra greasy and oily.

    Promising review: "I have lived with oily skin my whole life and, when spring and summer arrive, my face is even more oily. These blotting sheets are much better than the ones you get at the drugstore, and I only need to use one sheet for my entire face (as opposed to the two sheets I need to use with other brands)." —Boa C.

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in two scents and in larger packs).

    16. Garnier Fructis anti-frizz serum made with argan oil and apricot, because frizz can rear its head at any point in the day. This light serum will help to smooth out any stray pieces, leaving your hair silkier than ever before. And the huge bonus? It won't leave your roots feeling or looking greasy.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    I use this serum in the morning right before I head out the door and I love it. It helps the baby hairs around the crown of my head lay flat, instead of sticking straight up.

    Promising review: "Terrific product. I squirt a few drops in my palms, then I brush fingers and hands right through my short, but full crop of graying hair. Makes these tresses look ever so shiny and silky while keeping it all in place. Don't even need to use hairspray. I especially like the fact that it's not greasy, nor gummy, nor does it have an odor. It just has a pleasant and unassuming scent. Most of all, this product enhances the natural wave and light curl that I still have. For me, it's best used right after a shampoo and a towel dry." —Valerie C. Bartolo

    Get it from Amazon for $4.94 ( available in larger packs).

    17. A Dash mini griddle for pancakes and eggs to make breakfast a total breeze. It's the perfect size for a dorm room or small apartment, and with the blue indicator light, you'll know exactly when your food is ready.

    amazon.com

    It heats up within minutes and both top and bottom are non-stick! I use it constantly in my apartment for protein pancakes and over-easy eggs.

    Promising review: "Don’t waste time thinking about getting this, just get it! I’m in love with this little gadget! It’s so very easy to use and extremely convenient. All you need to do is plug it up and your home turns into an IHOP. I used this little beaut for the first time this morning and whipped out some perfectly cooked pancakes! It takes about four-five minutes to make each pancake. Expect flawless, golden brown, consistently crafted pancakes that are completely effortless. And this skillet can be used for more than just pancakes! I fully intend on cooking eggs, bacon, quesadillas, steaks, and whatever else my heart desires on here. I got my eye on that mini waffle maker next!" —LesLeaLuvShopping

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. Reusable scrubbing pads that'll tackle stubborn stains and leftovers like a champ. When it's time, you can throw them in the washing machine and they'll come out like new. Doing the dishes might actually become fun...maybe.

    Food52

    Get a set of five from Food52 for $32 (available in two colors).

    19. An Amazon Fire TV stick that'll provide access to thousands of channels and apps, plus over 500,000 movies and TV episodes. So yes, you can watch reruns of The Office before bed each night.

    Amazon

    You can enjoy Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, NBC, and more. It also grants you access to live TV and sports from AMC, HGTV, ESPN, and Fox.

    Promising review: "The Amazon Fire Stick is an amazing device. Television services are moving away from cable and satellite and are moving toward internet-based streaming formats. In fact, it provides you with every kind of app you can think of and does it at an affordable price. It plugs into the HDMI jack on your television and also comes with a power adapter that plugs into the wall. In order to work, you need to connect the device to your Wi-Fi. Movies and shows displayed by the device are typically in HD quality with good picture and sound quality. It is easy to set up and use and I was up and running in minutes." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    And check out my full review of the Amazon Fire TV stick.

    20. A pack of MagicFiber microfiber cleaning cloths for glasses and electronic devices, because let's be real – living without smudges is nearly impossible. They're even delicate enough to use on camera lens!

    amazon.com

    I keep a cloth in my bag, one at work, and one in my apartment! I hate having dust and dirt build up on screens, so they're super useful to have on-hand.

    Promising review: "I usually dislike microfiber cloths; I know they are supposedly great for cleaning your glasses and screens, but every single microfiber cloth I've ever used has left unbearable streak marks on every surface When I opened these cloths, I immediately used one to clean my glasses that I hadn't been able to clean properly all day. I used one of these cloths, and nothing else, and my glasses came out streak free and beautiful! Love these. I was hesitant to spend so much on cloths I was pretty sure I wouldn't like, but these blew me away! Most definitely will buy again." —Stephanie Hollander

    Get two from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in larger packs).

    21. A document clip so you can keep your most important papers in view while you work. It'll mount onto your monitor, freeing up your desk space. It also means you no longer have to crane your neck in a weird position!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have one of these on each side of my dual monitors, for quick references as well as when I need to type something directly. Mostly, I use them for cheat sheets and other quick references. They hold easily, and are easily moved around to change angle and distance. One thing I did not realize when I bought these was how far forward and back they can swing, to make the material the same distance from your eyes as the text on the monitors. This prevents eye-strain for me, as I'm not having to constantly change focus." —Brian Groover

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69.

    22. A pack of magnetic notepads that'll keep you organized week in and week out. From grocery lists to errand lists, you'll have everything covered.

    Amazon

    Each pad has 60 sheets of paper.

    Promising review: "These are really great! They are cheerful in the colors around the border while at the same time not being too busy with the design to distract from the list. Of course, it's great that they are lined. Also, the whole backing is the magnet! That eliminates the problem I had with the last pad I had where it had only a strip of magnet that tended to come right off." —Amazon Customer

    Get the six-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    23. A jewelry fastener, because you struggle every morning to get your favorite bracelet clasped. It's also super handy for back zippers on dresses and rompers. No more arm contorting!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can't believe I've waited this long to buy one of these. My eye sight is failing, including my depth perception, so wearing bracelets has been difficult unless they are slip on. This jewelry helper is easy to use. Now, I can wear bracelets again." —Cat Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in two colors and as a set of two).

    24. An anti-chafing balm to give your thighs some sweet relief during hot, sticky summer days. You can use it if your bra rubs, too. And the best part – it's made of Vitamins A, B, E, and F so it's hydrating and non-irritating to skin.

    @bodyglide / Via Instagram: @https://www.instagram.com/bodyglide/?hl=en

    Promising review: "I love to wear dresses, but my thighs rub together when I walk. I don't always want to wear leggings. I also have very sensitive skin. I've only been using this for a day now, but it really is odorless, doesn't seem to be affecting my clothes, and is working well. So far it doesn't itch or burn or cause any issues with my sensitive skin. I haven't had to be reapply too often. So far it's a win-win!" —Ellie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes).

    25. Eye shadow shields that'll catch residue that falls onto your cheeks during application. And it'll create that sharp, straight edge you've been trying to achieve.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don’t know how I've done my eye makeup without these my whole life! They help so much with eyeshadow fallout it’s insane! There’s two stickers on them, but I only do the small top ones since I like to do my foundation before eyeshadow and it helps catch all my fallout! They’re very sticky and sometimes take off some of my foundation, but I’ve found if you first tape it on your hand then onto your face it helps!" —Amazon Customer

    Get 100 shields from Amazon for $8.69.

    26. 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.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "Finally found a pillow my head and neck enjoy. I recommend this pillow for back and stomach sleepers. Gives great support and soft. Supports both head and neck perfectly. Been on it for a month now and I had no issue as all adjusting to it. Slept great first night on it. No complaints here!" —Kris Hall

    Get them from Amazon for $67.50+ (available in standard or king size).

    These were also selected as the high-price pick for the best pillows on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    27. A 10-piece ceramic cookware set so you can whip up literally anything and everything in your kitchen with easy cleanup. The entire set is non-stick, dishwasher- and oven-safe, and suitable for all cooking surfaces.

    Macy's

    The set includes a 9.5" fry pan, a 2-quart saucepan with lid, an 11" grill pan, a 3-quart saucepan with lid, a 4-quart jumbo cooker with lid and helper handle, a 6-quart Dutch oven with lid, and a recipe booklet.

    Promising review: "I come from background in restaurants and these pans are just awesome. I have been looking for years and after reading the reviews, I decided to buy these. Best thing I ever did! Not only are they lovely to look at, but they brown evenly and boil quickly. I just made a large batch of spaghetti sauce and rinsed the pan which came out completely clean. I have also used the grill pan to make pork chops." —Nona

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, sold exclusively at Macy's for $104.99 (originally $214.99, use code FRIEND for 30% off).

    28. Reusable K-cups, because your bi-weekly purchase of one-and-done K-cups is just too much! These fit a majority of Keurig machines and have ultra-fine mesh to prevent grinds from escaping. Now you can enjoy your morning cup of joe to its fullest extent.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am more than pleased with my K-cups. I find they don't require as much coffee as my old ones to get the same fully-satisfying brew. They are easier to clean than the heavier, three-part reusable ones I've had for years. Now I just shake out the spent grounds and give the one-piece cup a quick rinse. With four, I only have to do this once a day. Also, having multiple cups speeds up serving coffee to a group. Each guest chooses his/her preferred brand or blend, several of which I keep on hand, as well as the half-decaf mix I use. Lastly, I've discovered I can place the filled cup into the holder in any orientation, without taking the trouble of lining it up with the arrow. It still works perfectly. I would enthusiastically recommend this product to anyone." —W.E. King

    Get four cups from Amazon for $8.95.

    29. A Sweet Vibrations clitoral vibrator with twin wings and 10 vibration modes so you won't want to put it down. It fits in the palm of your hand, is whisper-quiet, and has a lifetime warranty!

    Sweet Vibrations

    It's also waterproof!

    Promising review: "I ordered this along with the Girl's Best Friend oral sex simulator. I decided I shouldn't be greedy after trying out and loving the Girl's Best Friend oral sex simulator so I gave the Pixie to a single friend after a quick glance in the box. She loves it. I've seen others like the Pixie go for hundreds more. The toy itself is made of nice soft materials. Buy it for any deserving person, including yourself!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in three colors).

    30. Belief's Aqua Bomb moisturizer to keep your skin silky smooth and free of dry patches. It's super effective and can provide hydration up to 26 hours. It's also incredibly lightweight so it can be applied under makeup with zero greasiness or residue.

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Aqua Bomb moisturizer is easily my desert island skincare product. Although I have dry-leaning combination skin, I hate most moisturizers because creamy formulas feel heavy and just yucky to me, especially under makeup. Aqua Bomb's gel-like consistency absorbs like a dream. It's soothing to stressed out skin in the winter and cooling through the heat of summer. I recommend it to friends of all skin types because it gives your skin that bouncy hydration it craves without feeling oily in the slightest. I've put it on every night and most mornings for years and have no plans of stopping anytime soon! —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in three sizes).

    31. A reusable BAGGU shopping bag that'll become your best friend while grocery shopping or running errands. The sturdy handles and construction allow you to hoist items over your shoulder without having to worry about items breaking though.

    Amazon

    The bag can hold up to 50 pounds and is machine washable!

    Promising review: "They are so well-made, easily washable, colorful, easy as a shoulder bag, and convenient to keep in my purse or in the car. I am always prepared to shop! It's a good-sized, sturdy bag to accommodate all my needs!! Great as a beach bag, also." —Pat Murray

    Get it from Amazon or BAGGU for $12+ (available in five styles).

    32. A biodegradable wheat straw bento box, because an easy way to become a lunchtime pro is to meal prep. And this bento box will make that process so much easier. Plus, it comes with its own set of cutlery!

    Amazon

    The different compartments make packing a multi-food lunch easy and the center unit is leak-proof for liquids. It's freezer-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I love it! It is a sturdy, attractive, well-designed product that will be enjoyed for years. The five compartments vary in shape and size and will accommodate a variety of foods: fruit, sandwiches, cookies, chips, salsa or dip – you name it! No more need for several zip lock bags just to keep food separate. It worked well in the microwave to heat up some delicious pasta. It can go in the freezer, the microwave and the dishwasher. Best of all, this eco box lives up to its name by being eco-friendly so it will not be clogging up some landfill or floating in the ocean in the years ahead. Meanwhile, I’ll be buying more for my home and for gifts." —John Carroll

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.
