    1. Make the switches in your home obsolete by turning your lamps on and off with a Star Wars light clapper. Now you won't be forced to leave the comfort of your duvet cocoon to get some shut-eye in the dark.

    Using it is simple: just smack your palms together and Darth Vader will say "The Force is strong with this one" and illuminate your room. Clap again and he'll say, "You underestimate the power of the Dark Side” and switch 'em back off.

    2. Keep your keys from getting blocked with crumbs with the help of a tie-dye keyboard protector. It'll save you from spending waaaay too long trying to dig debris out of your computer, because all you have to do is peel it off and shake it out.

    Ardene / Via

    It's compatible with all models of Macbook Pro, 13" Macbook Air, and Mac desktops from 2015 or earlier.

    Get it on Ardene $4.14 (originally $6.90). Also available in a tropical print.

    3. Instead of shellacking your face with drying lotion, cover your pimples with itty bitty acne patches. They'll stop you from picking at your active zits and can magically make acne disappear overnight.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / Via BuzzFeed

    "When ~something inevitably happens~ to throw my skin out of whack — like stepping foot onto a dry-ass airplane or being super stressed out — I keep a stash of Cosrx pimple patches handy. They actually absorb gunk from your pimple — it's gross, but so helpful! And you're INCAPABLE of picking at your skin when these are on! True little miracles, these are." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get three packs of 24 patches on LookFantastic for $12.30.

    4. Make breakfast with this egg cooker that'll whip up a protein-packed meal for you in mere minutes. It doesn't need to be monitored, so you can take a shower or watch another episode of Tiger King while it gets down to business.

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    One BuzzFeed writer loves how versatile it is — you can use it to boil and poach eggs, and cook omelets.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $34.

    5. Scrub your sensitive skin with a Foreo Luna Mini 2 instead of putting your fingers to work. It'll clean your entire face clean with T-Sonic pulses and will get rid of makeup residue, dead skin cells, and just about anything else.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / Via BuzzFeed

    "Here's how it works: apply cleanser directly to your face, wet the LUNA, and move it around your face in circular motions. Throughout the 60-second process, the light on the bottom will flash and the whole thing will buzz, telling you to move the LUNA to another part of your face — from one cheek/side of your chin to the other, then your nose, and then your forehead. It removes up to 99.5% of dirt and oil — and leaves your face free of ANY makeup residue. I wear a full face every day, and I am consistently amazed by the results of this tool." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it on SkinStore for $170.17.

    6. Order a HelloFresh box to make cooking dinner a breeze (all the ingredients are pre-portioned). Now you won't have to take a last-minute trip to the grocery store when you realize there's nothing in your pantry but cobwebs.


    It has options for vegetarians, picky-eaters, and families of all sizes.

    Get a box with three meals (two portions per meal) for $69.99.

    7. Instead of holding your phone, wear neck mount during your Zoom meetings. You just pop it onto your shoulders and stream or FaceTime to your heart's content, hands free.

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    The back is cushioned, so you don't have to worry about anything digging into your neck or shoulders.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $14.

    8. Get yourself an iced tea press that can be used to steep, ice, and drink from, so you don't need to create unnecessary dishes. It works its magic in minutes and leaves you with the perfect iced bevy every time.

    Augusta Falletta / Via BuzzFeed

    "The design of the mug is so user-friendly. Its body has two compartments: one exterior plastic cup and a second slightly slimmer cup that fits inside of the larger one. You dump a heaping spoonful of loose tea leaves into the larger cup and fill it to a measured line with boiling water. After about five minutes of steeping time (during which I'm usually doing my makeup or checking Snapchat), you fill the second cup with ice cubes. The bottom of the second cup is made with a mesh lining, so when the tea water is finished steeping, you slide the second cup down into the first. As this happens, the leaves are pushed down and kept separate from the liquid you're drinking while the ice cubes chill off the tea you just steeped. In two minutes, you have perfectly brewed iced tea with a ridiculously good sippy-cup top that won't give you any issues on a moving train." —Augusta Falletta

    Get it on DavidsTea for $24.

    9. Never hunt for your wallet again by tracking it with a Tile Slim. It has a built-in ringer, so if you keep it in your cardholder, all you have to do is fire up the alarm from your phone (there's a free app) and follow the noise.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I am a forgetful person who loses all of my stuff all the freaking time, especially my wallet. Yes, that is one of the most important things I own and I should be more aware of where I put it, but I'm 27 and apparently still haven't gotten the hang of it. That's where this little device comes in handy. I just slide the Tile Slim into one of the credit card slots in my wallet and can now track where it is with the help of the free Tile app. If I can see that it's in my home on the map, but can't find it, I just ring the device and it sets off a symphony of noises that help me hunt it down. Now, I'm not gonna lie to you, the sounds that erupt out of it are ANNOYING, but that makes me find it even faster because I (and my roommate) want it to shut up." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Tile for $29.99.

    10. Use a spinning makeup brush cleaner to remove the built-up product from your beauty tools. Now you won't have to waste your precious hours of leisure scrubbing them down with your own two hands. As an added bonus, it dries them, too!

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    It comes with eight kinds of brush collars, so there's one for every type of brush in your collection.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $29.95.

    11. Subscribe to Disney+ so that you can relive your youth and also indulge in newer Disney and Pixar gems. It's broken into themed collections, so you won't have to spend hours scrolling to find exactly what you're looking for.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I was on the hunt for a new streaming service, and honestly didn't know if Disney+ was the one for me. Turns out, it is. I can indulge in guilty pleasures from way back when for hours and hours and the options are seemingly endless. I recently started sharing a membership with some friends, so it's even more budget-friendly." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Disney+ for $8.99/month.

    12. Get your pearly whites even whiter by using an electronic toothbrush every morning and night. It does all the work for you, so you don't even need to make a scrubbing motion with your delicate wrists.

    Foreo / Via

    Get it on SkinStore for $241.67. Also available in black and blue.

    13. Do waxing touch-ups with an at-home kit so you don't need to see an esthetician when things get a little too hairy for your liking. It comes with 16 double-sided, hypoallergenic strips as well as post-wax aloe cream to soothe any irritation.

    No Mo / Via

    Get it on Anthropologie for $22 USD.

    14. Set up a mini ring light set to give yourself studio-level illumination, and hold your phone for you while you film your TikTok routines. It'll also kick your selfie game up a notch, and who doesn't want that?

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    It can be plugged in or powered by batteries, and comes with a ring light and tabletop tripod with a phone mount and mirror.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $104.

    Simons / Via

    Get it on Simons for $30.

    16. Use an electric milk frother to make café-level beverages from the comfort of your own kitchen. With this baby, lattes and cappuccinos are only one press of a button away!

    Bodum / Via

    Get it on Bodum Canada for $28.99 (originally $44.99).

    17. Trade your uncomfortable kicks for a pair of fluffy Ugg sandal slippers that'll keep your tootsies comfy, and save you from overheating. They have a grippy rubber sole, so you can even wear them to take the trash out.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland

    "They have a hard sole, so you can wear them as indoor slippers, half-indoor-half-outdoor take-out-the-trash-shoes, or real regular shoes (aka what I'm going to use them for). When it's still warm-ish out, I'm going to wear them with my toes poking through, but they're also going to be *so* cute with socks (team socks + sandals 'til I die!!!!!). And they're SO SOFT AND COMFY! I'm prepared to live in these all fall. Paired with leggings and a blazer? It's the perfect 'Ugh, I can barely make today happen' work outfit. I honestly want to get another pair in another of the cute colors...or the leopard print. Oh, and just FYI, I ended up sizing down in these!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it on Ugg Canada for $125. Available in 18 colours and size 5-12.

    18. Get yourself off with an OG Magic Wand, because who needs a partner to have a little fun? Not you! It's been on the market for over 50 years and reviewers say it can deliver multiple orgasms in a single sesh (something we all aspire to).

    BuzzFeed / Via

    It has eight vibration settings and is USB rechargeable.

    Get it on Lovehoney Canada for $169.95.

    19. Use a digital photo printer to print pictures directly from your phone's camera roll. It connects to a free app that allows you to add filters and frames, and shows you exactly how your photos will turn out, so you'll never waste your precious film on subpar pics again.

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    You can grab rainbow film for it here!

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $119. Available in three colours.

    20. Pack all of your essentials into a portable bedside caddy, so that you don't have to nap with journals, books, and electronics piled up in your bed (me ATM). Without the clutter, you'll be able to happily snooze your way through the day without rolling onto your stuff.

    Urban Outfitters / Via

    It's made of super-soft polyester and tucks right into the side of your bed frame.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $24.

    21. Use dry shampoo on those days when you don't have the energy to do your full hair routine, but don't want to walk around with an oil slick on your head. Reviewers say it's also great for adding some oomph to limp locks, so you can use it for styling, too.

    Lululemon / Via

    Get it on Lululemon for $20. Also available in travel size.

    22. Suction a portable beer (or pop can) holder right to the wall of your shower or bathtub, so that you can hydrate while you get clean. It's also a speaker, so you can sing along to "Pocketful of Sunshine" while washing your bod.

    It can suction onto almost any flat, shiny, dry surface, so you can probably find a few other creative places to use it in your home. It's USB rechargeable.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $39.

    Lara Parker / Via BuzzFeed

    "As soon as I touched the material, I knew they were different. I allowed myself to be hopeful. The material is so soft, yet durable, and the stretchiest shit I've ever seen. I went into the fitting room to try the pants on and they felt like a very sexy butter caressing my legs. They are true to size, and very stretchy." —Lara Parker

    Get it on Lululemon for $98. Available in 18 colours, three lengths, and sizes 0-14.
