    30 Sensible Products You'll Wish You'd Known About Sooner

    Don't ask questions. They just make sense, okay.

    1. A TubShroom to keep the over abundance of hair from falling down and clogging your sink drains. No more backed-up, overflowing sink!

    2. A Baker's Edge brownie pan because everyone knows the edges are the best part of this delectable dessert. You can also utilize the pan for testing out different topping options. ~YUM~

    3. A set of Drop Stop gap fillers for keeping your cell phone (or rogue french fries) from building up in your car seat cracks.

    4. Glossier Could Paint – it functions as both a blush and lip color for those of us who are lazy (guilty), but want something fuss-proof that looks natural.

    5. A Delomo grooming glove to simultaneously give your pet a nice massage while collecting all that potential fur that would inevitably end up on your precious furniture.

    6. An Instant Pot Air Fryer for making delicious bar-level food (like wings and french fries) in a shorter amount of time. No more dangerous oil-frying on the stove or waiting for them to crisp up in the oven.

    7. An easily hangable T-shirt organizer in case folding your clothes in a way that would make Marie Kondo proud is just not in your repertoire of talents.

    8. A Bug Bite Thing — great for keeping handy when those pesky bug bites strike. It removes insect venom, saliva, and other irritants that can cause irritating itchiness. A true summer staple.

    9. A FoodSaver vacuum sealer because when you aren't cooking up that entire new package of steaks, plastic wrapping them and putting them in the freezer for a later date may come back to bite you (when they get freezer burned). Poor wrap jobs? See ya. This vacuum sealer will work wonders at preserving leftovers.

    10. Thinksport shampoo and body wash will effectively remove lingering chlorine after a dip in the pool. Traveling? Now you don't have to bring two separate toiletries and can just bring this multi-tasker!

    11. A Fasta Pasta since waiting for your pasta to cook can be like waiting for "rain in a drought, useless and disappointing," (A Cinderella Story anyone!?) But in all honesty, why boil a whole pot of water just to make one serving of pasta when you can cook it quicker and more efficiently in the microwave?

    12. A CouchCoaster so you can stop trying to balance your bevvy on the arm of the couch while binging your current must-watch Netflix show.

    13. A Beard King hair-catcher so those who like to make a mess at the sink can have an easier go-around when it's time to clean up after trimming up their mustache.

    14. A Filtrete air purifier in case allergies are hitting you hard as of late and you want to ensure the air you're breathing is free from smoke, dust, pollen, and harmful bacteria.

    15. A handy cable organizer for keeping your charging cables organized and color-coded so you never confuse the phone charger for your headphones charger again.

    17. A hanger stacker because grabbing one for that new clothing item you bought should be hassle-free. No more trying to find a needle in THAT haystack...

    18. A T Thompson Tee that features underarm sweat pads to absorb even the largest quantities of sweat and a bamboo fabric for a nice cooling effect. You'll probs never want to work out in any other top than this one ever again.

    19. A set of two miniature spatulas if you're tired of wasting makeup at the bottom of the packaging. These also work great on food items and basically anything that comes in a tube or jar.

    20. A Sleep Pod blanket that'll stay snug around your body even if you have to get up and make a quick run to the fridge. A cozy trip to the fridge? Sold.

    21. A S'well drink chiller so enjoying that first crisp sip of your fave bevvy, can be an every-sip kinda thing. This chiller will keep your cans cold for up to six hours (plenty of time to sip slowly)!

    22. A container of Mad Rabbit tattoo balm to make your ink more vibrant while also keeping it healthy and hydrated. You put a lot of time, effort, (and money) into your body art, you might as well keep it in pristine condition too.

    23. A Frywall — it's ideal for cooking splatter-prone things like bacon without spewing grease all over you and your cooktop. It can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees F with its durable BPA-free silicone.

    24. A Stasher reusable silicone bag for keeping your refrigerator organized with all those yummy leftovers. These nontoxic silicone bags will help you cut back on single-use plastic (woohoo), and are also dishwasher- and microwave-safe! A true multi-tasker.

    25. The Safety Nailer because the terror that comes with trying to use a nail and hammer can be daunting. Forgo hitting your finger (ouch), and use this steady solution instead.

    26. An organic cotton bacon sponge that's more eco-friendly and will help you cut back on paper towel waste. This lil' guy can absorb up to 10 times its weight in grease so the next time you're frying up some bacon, you can soak up all the grease efficiently. It's also washable for reuse!

    27. A clip-on sleeve since you're always losing your lip balm in the abyss that is the bottom of your bag, and you want to keep it handy at all times (and also wanna stop having to buy more lip balms).

    28. A smart funnel so you can transfer liquids from one bottle into a new one. You know, when you have two ketchups open and one is on its last limb? This funnel will help you transport the leftover ketchup into the newer bottle with no problems.

    29. A leather Bagnet since placing your coveted handbag on the floor is ~gross.~ This bagnet will magnetize to any metal chair or barstool!

    30. A smart camera that works with Alexa so you can have peace of mind that your pups are behaving while you're out to dinner. (I have this camera and it's fab.)
