    1. A pack of Velcro cord ties to organize all those wires and doodads that are currently floating around your junk drawer. They're a lot more effective than rubber bands and zip ties, and are easy to adjust and remove.

    I am basically the queen of getting wires tangled. From headphones to computer cords, everything I owned used to have at least one knot in it — until I bought these babies. They've helped me keep everything that's not currently in use perfectly wrapped. Not only is this more convenient for me, but it extends the lives of my cords because I no longer spend minutes yanking at them.

    Get a pack of 25 ties on Amazon Canada for $9.27. Also available in grey and in larger packs.

    2. This adjustable gel pack that'll help you ease your aches and pains. It can be used hot or cold, and secures with Velcro, so it won't slide off while you're using it.

    I recently had a deep-tissue massage and my RMT kindly told me my muscles hate me (in a nicer way than that, obviously). To ease the pain in my hands and wrists, they recommended applying heat regularly. While baths are great, I can't sit in one forever, so I bought this. I just pop the gel pack in the microwave, stick it to the band (it attaches with Velcro strips), and wrap it around my wrist to ease the pain. It also works as an ice pack and is the perfect size to use on your feet and forehead, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    3. A bottle of Verb Ghost Oil that's infused with bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil to strengthen your locks and minimize frizz. It's thicker than most hair serums, and delivers some serious hydrating results with just a few pumps.

    When I bleached my hair, it was completely busted. It broke every time I brushed it and basically looked like one of those tumbleweeds you see in an old western movie every time I blowdried it — until I found this. It's thicker than most oils (a bit lighter than the consistency of gel) and combs through hair like a dream. It packs in moisture like nobody's business and also smells freaking amazing.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99.

    4. A pack of nutrient-dense fertilizer spikes that are packed with vitamins to keep your greenery happy and healthy. They can even help revive those on the verge of death and save you from unnecessary plant funerals.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I love my plants, but sometimes I'm not the best mom to them. I forget to feed them on occasion and these little spikes give them a boost when I've been a neglectful plant parent. Using them is simple: Just dig a hole with the plastic tool, shove in a plant spike, cover it with soil, and let it work its magic.

    Get a pack of 24 spikes on Amazon Canada for $9.97.

    5. A bottle of antioxidant-rich throat spray that's made of bee propolis (a 100% natural compound produced by bees) and will help soothe your sore throat. It doesn't have any added sugar, but tastes sweet, so you won't gag when you use it.

    I started using this stuff when I was working at a health food store in university and haven't stopped. While it hasn't cured any of my sicknesses completely (I turn to modern medicine for that), it does help ease my sore throat when I feel a cold coming on. Also, it tastes good enough to use even when I'm not sick, so I don't dread it like I do Buckleys.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.

    6. A stainless steel pet-grooming comb that’ll give your four-legged friend a light trim and remove tough tangles, so your don't leave your apartment with pet hair in every nook and cranny. It has over 2,700 positive reviews and people say it leaves their pets feeling smoother and looking shinier than ever.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I am currently fostering a very large and very hairy St. Bernard. She is perfect in every way, but the amount of fur she leaves in her wake is bonkers. I saw that this comb had killer reviews, so I placed an order immediately. It works absolute WONDERS, and now I don't leave my couch covered in stray hairs, which is really all I want in life.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.97. Available in three colours.

    7. A fluffy microfibre duster that'll trap all those pesky dirt particles, leaving your space cleaner than ever. If you've been sneezing up a storm thanks to all the gross stuff floating around your home, it may be time to invest in one of these.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I turned on the heating in my apartment for the first time this year (I hate that statement as much as you do) and was treated to the not-so-lovely smell of stale dust cooking in my vents. I knew I had to solve this problem before it got too cold, so I purchased this microfibre duster. It gets all up in the small nooks and crannies of my ventilation system and is great for wiping dust off my TV, too. To make things even better, when it gets super dirty, I can just slide the microfibre cloth off the handle and throw it in the washing machine.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99.

    8. A pack of ant traps that'll fix your pest problem once and for all, so that you won't have to call in a fumigator. It comes with six borax-infused bait stations that you can strategically hide in your cupboards and around your house.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I love how tiny the bait stations are, like, they barely take up any room. You can pretty much conceal them wherever they are, so your guests will never know you're fighting an infestation.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $8.99.

    9. A dual-ended tube of e.l.f lash and brow gel that'll help you achieve a no-makeup makeup look in seconds. It's not sticky at all, but will lift your brow hairs and lashes to the high heavens and keep them there all day long.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This is my favourite quick-fix product for when I want to feel a little bit more put together, but don't want to go all out with my 52-step beauty routine. It also doesn't leave my hairs feeling crispy or flake off after a few hours of wear.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $2.97.

    10. A genius split extension cord that reaches six feet on both sides, so you and your partner will have equal access to a power source when you're in bed. Now you won't have to create a chain of cords to light up the lamps on your bedside tables.

    Forgive me for these photos because this thing is impossible to take a picture of when it's in action. You plug the centre of it into an outlet behind your bed (or sofa) and the two extension cords split from the centre, so you and your partner both have ample space to plug in your doodads on either side. I used to have to give my boyfriend my phone and charger to plug in on his side of the bed every night, but now I have my own outlet and can happily scroll through Instagram with a fully-charged device until the wee hours of the morning. Each side has three two-prong outlets.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    11. This measuring cup that has the measurements written on the inside and outside, so you can clearly see how much you're pouring. It's made of plastic, so it won't shatter into a million pieces if you knock it off your countertop.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    You know what sucks about baking? Getting down to eye level with your measuring cup every time to see whether you've actual hit the one-cup line. This solves that problem by listing measurements on both the inside and outside of the cup. Now I don't have to do a squat to ensure that I actually poured out enough milk or flour.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.99.

    12. A keyboard cover that'll keep your computer safe from dust, drips, and spills. All the essential keyboard shortcuts (like screenshot and search bar) are colour coded, so you'll never have to turn to Google for help again.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    Because I love to snack while I work, I am horrible at keeping my computer clean. That means a keyboard protector is almost essential. This one is super light and doesn't move around my keys when I'm typing. It also has all the essential keyboard shortcuts (like screenshot and search bar) colour coded, so never have to Google how to do specific commands. It may not be the prettiest thing in the world, but boy, does it ever come in handy.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.99. Compatible with most MacBooks.

    13. This Canadian-made maple syrup candle that smells like a sugar shack in Quebec. It's made of soy wax and has a wooden wick, so it's safer and more eco-friendly than synthetic alternatives.

    This candle smells, like, stupid good. I love that it's not sickly sweet, like all those vanilla and pumpkin spice scents you see in department stores. It also looks really great in my living room, thanks to the vintage-style tin.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $24.78.

    14. These leakproof sandwich bags that are designed to be used over and over again. They're great for storing snacks and for organizing all the random doodads in your home.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I've used these for storing fruit in my fridge and didn't see a single drop of water, so that's great. Mostly I use them to organize the beauty products that aren't in my daily rotation (spoiler alert: that's a lot of them, since I haven't been going out much). They come in a pack of seven, so I even had leftovers for random tech wires.

    Get a pack of seven sandwich bags on Amazon Canada for $14.99. Also available in mixed packs.

    15. A pack of reusable interdental brushes that have soft nylon bristles and are small enough to fit in your pocket. They're way more effective than traditional floss and are especially great if you have permanent retainers.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Flossing with permanent retainers is a difficult task, and these little doodads make the process so much easier. They easily slide under my wires and unstick pesky things (like popcorn kernels) super easily.

    Get a pack of eight on Amazon Canada for $4.78. Available in five colours.

    16. A travel-sized pack of Cetaphil cleansing cloths formulated for sensitive skin. They won't leave any pore-clogging residue behind, so they're great for using on the go. You can even use them to wipe down your dirty hands, if you're in a pinch and there's not a sink in sight.

    I keep this tiny pack of facial wipes in my bag at all times, in case I spend the night at a friend's house on a whim. They get rid of every speck of makeup, and don't leave feeling parched or cause breakouts (which is pretty much all I look for in a cleansing wipe). They also don't smell like anything, which is a major plus in my book, because I loathe the ideas of putting synthetic fragrances anywhere near my face.

    Get a pack of 10 wipes on Amazon Canada for $4.79. Also available in a pack of 25 wipes.

    17. A set of heat-resitant silicone spatulas that won't scratch your cookware. I love them because you can leave them sitting in piping hot pots and pans and not worry about them melting into your food.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    My boyfriend used to get enraged with me because I constantly left utensils in hot pans while cooking. To be fair, I've melted at least four spatulas in his kitchen, so he had a reason to be salty. To save us from dueling to the death, he bought this set of silicone spatulas. It comes with three different-sized spatulas, plus a spreader, which is great for icing baked goods. Now we can happily coexist in the kitchen without him following me around removing tools from various pots and pans.

    Get a set of four on Amazon Canada for $13.07. Also available in packs of three and six.

    18. This book of crossword puzzles from New York Magazine that'll keep you entertained for hours. It even includes a bonus cryptic puzzle for the seasoned pros who want more of a challenge (anagrams, ahoy!).

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Because I am a huge word nerd, I do two crosswords every day online. I needed to up my game, so I bought this book of puzzles to take my clue-solving skills to the next level. The crosswords in this book range from historical to geographical to cultural, and offer something for every generation, so you can get your whole family involved. It's challenging, but not so challenging that I have to cheat and look at the answers for every puzzle.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.80.

    19. A Click and Grow indoor garden that'll help you create a super low-maintenance herb and vegetable patch inside your apartment. Now you can feel like a seasoned botanist without even getting your hands dirty.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $259.95. Also available in grey and in a smaller size. It comes with three basil plant pods, three tomato plant pods, and three lettuce plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.
