    If You Don't Have These 55 Things In Your Home, You're Missing Out

    Yeah, it's finally time to get that air fryer.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. The Always Pan — the kitchen appliance that quickly grew a cult following for being all in one. (I'm not kidding about the following — colors sell out ALL the time.) With every purchase, you'll get a beechwood spatula and a stainless steel steamer basket.

    Amanda Davis / BuzzFeed, Our Place

    I've had the green Always Pan for over a year now (that's mine above on the left!), and it's still one of my favorite things in my kitchen. I'm no chef by any means, but I can't help but be way more motivated with this cutie on my stove. It's got pour spouts, a built-in spoon rest, and a super-convenient non-stick (and non-toxic) coating! You can steam, strain, sauté, fry the list goes on.

    Promising review: "I purchased an Always Pan in 2020 and have since purchased two more as gifts, and two of the Perfect Pots. I love knowing that I am not cooking chemicals into my food while using these. They are super easy to clean, and I was really surprised that the exterior color does not get stained by food. It is definitely important to use only a super-soft sponge on the pan interior. Admittedly, I was skeptical at first given the price of the pan, but you can honestly tell that there is a high level of quality! Very happy with this purchase!" Angelique O.

    2. A string of under-cabinet lights that'll be useful when prepping dinner, but they'll also give your kitchen a more elevated look. Are you standing in a hotel or your home kitchen??

    Includes a remote that can adjust the brightness.

    Promising review "This is a wonderful product; just what I wanted. Super easy to install, and I love that it breaks off into sections, so you don’t have any hanging over to hide. The remote is awesome, and there are lots of brightness settings. I’m going to use these everywhere!" —Queen Halloween

    Get the six-piece kit from Amazon for $20.99 (available in two light colors).

    3. A stainless-steel rainfall shower head to transform your bathroom in the best way. Who said you can't have bougie, spa-level showers every day?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful shower head, very thin, but feels quite sturdy and heavy. Installation took no more than five minutes. The shower head has a very smooth, highly polished, mirror-like chrome finish. It gives a satisfying showering experience without wasting too much water. Absolutely no leaks whatsoever. Everybody in our family said they liked it. What else is there to say about a shower head?" —Sadda Reddy

    Get it from Amazon for $45.31+ (available in three sizes and two finishes).

    4. A collapsible hanger that not only makes it easier to see all your options in a crowded closet, but it uses half the space! This hanger holds up to five pairs of pants but only takes up the space of two or three. *Mind blown* 🤯

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with these hangers! I first bought one to try it with my boyfriend’s pants, and I loved them so I had to buy another one. The material of the part where you place the pants prevents any type of clothing from sliding off. Saves a lot of space on my closet and was easy to install, took me less than two minutes. The hangers come with the tool necessary and an extra piece that holds the rods in case you lose one. Overall very happy with the results, will buy again if I need more!" —Lizette Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    5. A set of two nesting storage tables because these babies can be used as both chic side tables and a place to store extra home goods.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with these tables! The tall one comes high enough to enjoy coffee or to eat at. My favorite part about these tables are the storage! I love them because they don’t take up a ton of room and are easy to move around! Super happy with these!" —Andrew Vinh Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $82.99+ (available in five finishes).

    6. A stained-glass window decal that's not only great for privacy, but for having constant rainbows and positive energy in your home. When the sun hits your window, the entire room will make you smile.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My kitchen window is on the sidewalk near the community mailboxes. Lots of people walking by. I loathe mini blinds, which collect dust and grease. Especially since the stove is next to the window. Curtains are better, but still collect cooking smells and grease particles. I installed this in about 10 minutes. It lets in light, but hides me from nosy people." —Gayle Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98 (seven roll sizes available).

    7. A soothing sunrise alarm clock so waking up groggy isn't the norm anymore. With this, it'll feel calming and natural, like an at-home vacation, if you will. Having that every morning? I'll take it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OK guys. Here’s the deal. This is gonna be a long review but TL;DR: This is an amazing little product, and I highly recommend it. I suffer from mild insomnia and generally have to use sleep aids, which is fine but not ideal for every night. I also moved from SoCal to Washington state a year ago, and I have NEVER been exposed to so little sunlight in my life! Living in the dark winters here is insanely difficult for me. This👏🏼Little👏🏼Alarm👏🏼Clock👏🏼 Has changed my life and I’ve only had it for like three weeks. The sleepy time setting has the ability to KNOCK me out without the use of sleep aids! What?! My brain totally responds to the way the light functions. The morning alarm is so gentle and peaceful (you can completely control the noise and brightness settings). I wake up much more naturally rather than to the blaring honk or passive-aggressive chiming of a traditional alarm (looking at you, Apple). The light settings are so fun as well! I love having it on a low setting while I’m journaling, reading, watching TV, anything really! I would pay two or three times the price for this thing. It’s 100% worth it." —KatieM

    Get it from Amazon for $45.98+ (available in two options).

    8. A jar of the bestselling Pink Stuff for those hard-to-get stains, dirt, and rust spots around the house. It works for everything from bathtubs and stove tops to tennis shoes and crayon-covered walls.

    A reviewer shows before and after photos of their bathtub. Before it is rusted and dirty and after using The Pink Stuff, it is white and clean.
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had tried everything to get the hardware stains off my shower. CLR, metal scrubbing pads, vinegar, and many other things. I thought I'd end up having to replace all the faucets, knows, etc. I saw this in a BuzzFeed article and thought, no way it's THAT good... It's that good. It's better than good. It's wild how good it is. My shower looks better than new. It took rust stains off tile. It took years of hard-water scale buildup off in seconds. It is literally a miracle product." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. A door draft stopper to keep your home the cozy safe haven that it is. When you have the space heater going while bundled up in a blanket, the last thing you need to worry about is a cold breeze.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    PS. it's soundproof too!

    Promising review: "So easy to set up! All you do is peel tape and adhere to a CLEAN and DRY door. Also looks great, I don't even notice it. I had a huge gap under my door. I could smell and hear everything from the hallway. Smells, drafts, and sound all are less of an issue now." —Brit B.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors).

    10. A set of water-absorbent coaters that are just as cute as they are useful. These terrazzo-style coasters are fast acting when it comes to liquid cleanup, and they even have a cork bottom so there is no unwanted movement.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought these because my old coasters left puddles of water from the condensation on drinks. These really work and absorb everything! Very pleased. And they are so cute and look good on both wood and white marble countertops! Love that there are two slightly different designs in a pack." —Liza P

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    11. A slender storage cabinet so you'll actually have a *cute* place to store extra toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and fill that weird space between the toilet and the wall.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So easy to put together, I could put it together with my eyes closed. It fit amazingly perfectly between the tub and the toilet, and it has created so much more space, and my bathroom is no longer cluttered because of this product." —COS45B

    Get it from Amazon for $34.88 (available in two colors).

    12. A set of satin pillowcases to ensure your hair and skin protection continues while you're sleeping! With satin, there's less friction, which means no more tangled hair (thank goodness!), and the cooling effect will help you sleep soundly.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "My hair has never been better! I got this because of TikTok, and it has done wonders for my hair. My hair isn’t frizzy or dull looking when I get up in the morning." —Aaron Key

    "I was a little skeptical that a pillow case could make much of a difference with my hair, but I recently bleached my hair at home and fried it slightly, so I bought these as part of a multi-pronged plan to heal it. I woke up this morning after using them for the first time, and my hair is legit less frizzy. Not just not more frizzy, but less frizzy than when I went to sleep. I'm blown away. I just ordered three more sets." —Anne Allen

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three sizes and 23 colors).

    13. A Vitruvi stone diffuser that will have your home smelling like lavender, citrus, or whatever your relaxing scent of choice may be. This diffuser can run continuously for up to four hours, and has an auto-shutoff feature perfect for when you forget about it (unlike candles).

    amazon.com, Vitruvi

    Don't forget your essential oils! Here's a top-rated pack of six for only $9.99.

    Promising review: "This is a very classy-looking diffuser that goes great with the decor in my house — it’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It’s not too big so it doesn’t look bulky in a room, but it’s also not too small where it doesn’t diffuse the scent throughout the space. It was very easy to set up, and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (originally $119; available in four colors).

    PS. If you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, ViviTest has a similar diffuser for $41.99.

    14. A touchscreen air fryer for quick and delicious meals! With the help of 13 cooking modes, this Cosori air fryer can help even the worst of cooks make something great. Reviewers rave about making everything from french fries to whole steaks (and some yummy reheated meals in between).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "I may never use a regular oven again! EASY, cleanup is so quick. It doesn’t heat up the kitchen. It’s safe! You can set it to cook and go do something else; however, it cooks anything in half the time... My #1 reason for wanting an air fryer is to cook chicken wings. It exceeds my expectations! #2 reason, 🍟 french fries. I’ve cooked steak successfully. I cooked bacon 🥓 today! ... The whole family loves the air fryer. I like this one because it has a square basket and holds quite a lot... This is the best appliance I have ever owned — what took me so long?" —Susan W.

    "This air fryer is amazing! Oh my gosh I love it and use it all the time! I’ve done hash browns, O’Brien potatoes, chicken fried steak, chicken Parmesan, fried pickles, bread sticks, cookies, steak, French toast sticks, egg rolls — I have done so much and love it! Reheats food much better than a microwave also. Great buy and very easy to clean. The cookbook that came with it has many good recipes, have not made anything I didn’t like out of the little cookbook." —ReadMyLips29

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in three colors).

    15. And reusable air fryer liners to make cleanup a breeze. Because these babies are made of silicone, you'll get years of use!

    A reviewer showing the red liner inside of their air fryer
    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "These mats are a game changer for all of my ovens and grill. Some juices may fall through them depending on what is air fried, but no breading, cheese, etc. falls through. Nothing sticks to these mats and only a little soap and warm water washes off any grease or oil on them. ... Since using these mats, I haven't had to clean any burnt residue from the heating elements. If I ever had to replace these mats, I would definitely buy them again." —Judy L. 

    "These silicone mats are a game changer (and you all know not to use nonstick spray on your AF, right? It takes the coating off). Food doesn't stick (not even that ooey, gooey cheese that melts off slices of pizza), and cleaning is a snap. I just pop it in my dishwasher and voilà! If you have an air fryer, get these mats!" —Karen G. Pedercini

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 8.5 inch and 7.5 inch).

    16. A set of food storage containers with airtight lids that are dishwasher-safe and pleasing to the eye. You really can have it all. 😌

    17. A stylish marble wireless charging stone you won't mind laying around the house. It's compatible with iPhones, Galaxy phones, AirPods, and more.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This charger looks great and works great. I tried it with my work phone in an Otterbox case and with my personal phone that has a thin silicone case. It worked immediately with both and also worked for my AirPod Pros in a case. It's an expensive product, but it blends in better with the décor in my living room than the previous wireless charger we had in there. I like it! It would make a nice housewarming gift." —Stef

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in seven colors).

    18. A Samsung frame smart TV to hide that solid black screen that kinda ruins your living room ~vibe~. When turned off, this TV disguises itself as a gorgeous piece of art hanging on the wall.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but I am so enamored with this TV, I had to... This TV checks all the boxes. Beautiful picture when viewing TV, but disguised so ingeniously, when not. A large selection of artwork is available to fit any decor. It’s just incredible!" —FLgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $527.99+ (available in six sizes, six styles, and with or without expert installation).

    19. A vertical shoe rack perfect for entryways and small spaces. Your shoes do not have to take over the floor space!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is great! Fits vertically in my small entryway, just what I was looking for. If you want a modern stylish clean-looking shoe rack with a small footprint, this is the perfect selection! It’s lightweight, so of course it’s not the sturdiest piece of furniture, but for storing five pairs of shoes, it’s great! It fits men's size 10 shoes perfectly." —Aaron Staley

    Get it from Amazon for $46.15+ (available in two colors and widths).

    20. Shelf dividers to keep your closet and cabinets looking immaculate, while also preventing things from toppling over when you grab from the bottom. (That saying "not all heroes wear capes" definitely applies here.)

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two colors).

    21. A slim cutlery organizer that takes up very little space in your drawer, but can fit up to 24 pieces of cutlery. The possibilities with the extra space are endless.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons, etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

    PS: You can get the knife organizer (also pictured above) for $11.99 too.

    22. A sock and underwear organizer so awesome, you might just open the drawer and stare for fun. This set of four is guaranteed to maximize space in your dresser too.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $15 for four organizers, I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst-case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $15.97+ (available in seven colors).

    23. A set of Wad-Free pads to prevent your sheets from tangling in the wash, catching other clothes, and not actually drying. These will save you from having to run the dryer twice.

    Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic. Cyndi, the founder, learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads.

    Promising review: "Honestly, I had my doubts! But BuzzFeed kept showing me this product. And washing and drying sheets was an annoyance: The sheets would take over the washing machine and get tangled in the dryer, causing EVERYTHING in that load to take forever to dry. No longer. I used these for the first time yesterday and ZERO tangles. The load dried in normal time. AND I get to support a woman-owned business?!?! Perfect." —Michelle Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    24. A towel holder to make your bathroom at home feel like one at a hotel. You can mount it on the wall or even behind the door if you want it out of the way.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very pleased with the product, came with the necessary hardware, easy to install, seems pretty sturdy, and solved a storage problem — no more piles of rolled towels on top of my toilet tank, and now I can reserve the hooks on my bathroom door for towels that are currently in use... Arrived quickly and intact. If I had a drill I would have installed it myself. It only took a handyman about five minutes. Good product at a decent price." —Kilidonia de Acero

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

    25. A knit weighted blanket that'll make life easier in the sense of better sleep and being a calming hug when you need. Because it's knit and has open spaces, this blanket will keep you relaxed without making you too hot. When not in use, it's the perfect throw for your couch or bed.

    a reviewer shows  the gray blanket on a white couch
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this blanket! When I got it I thought, how in the world? But then I laid under it. It seems to be knitted like a giant fish net, but the material is really thick, silky, and soft. You pull it, and it springs back together... I love that I can get the weight without getting hot. And even though there is a lot of open space between the material, it still keeps you warm. It’s actually really cozy. The cat likes it. I have never had a blanket like this, but I will never go back to sand or bead weighted blankets; they are to hot and make me sweat. Sometimes trying something new can be a great thing." —dej92

    Get them from Amazon for $129.50+ (available in six sizes/weights and 12 colors).

    26. An affordable bidet from Tushy that will make your bum feel like royalty. You can adjust the water temperature for your preferred clean, and reduce toilet paper use along the way.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes, which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    28. A cold brew pitcher if you're strictly an iced coffee fan. All you need to do is put grounds into the filter, add some water, and let it sit overnight. The next day you'll have some yummy cold brew!

    29. A kitchen mat that looks just like a Moroccan-style rug, but is made with thick, durable, and easy-to-clean material. It's even ergonomically engineered to ensure comfortable, steady footing.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising reviews: "So happy with this purchase! Makes doing dishes much more comfortable without having a black rubber garage-looking mat in the middle of your kitchen. I was worried about having a white mat in such a high traffic/high spill area right below the sink, but it wipes perfectly clean any time something spills on it." —erin

    "All of the benefits of a comfy kitchen mat and none of the eyesore! Exactly what I was looking for." —Caity

    Get it from Amazon for $32+ (available in two sizes).

    30. A smart button pusher because who doesn't want to voice control their light switch, garage doors, or AC these days? (It even works on manual coffee makers — ah!) This cool gadget works through the SwitchBot app and is also compatible with Alexa, Google Home, HomePod, and more.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is literally exactly what I was looking for, but better! I wanted something that would automatically press the button to unlock the downstairs door from my phone (so that I wouldn't have to sprint like a madman to the other end of the house to hit it), and this does the trick exactly. Not only can I buzz open the downstairs door from inside, but ALSO from outside, eliminating the need to mess with keys. This device is genius. Pure genius." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $29 (available in two colors).

    31. A small sound machine that'll play sounds so soothing, you can't help but doze off into a good night's sleep. Featured sounds include ocean waves, rain, bonfires, and simple white noise (among 16 others) with 32 volume levels.

    Promising reviews: "Amazing product, has helped me to improve my relaxation levels. I struggle with balancing stress and I think too much, and this little gadget has tremendously improved my life." —Anna Morales

    "This tiny machine is loud enough to drown out annoying neighbors throwing loud parties somewhere; it drowns out my sister's dog's unnecessarily loud barking, and I’m at peace. I’m now deeply attached to this product as I’ve always had chronic sleep problems and have sensory issues. My sleep environment is so chill now; I can actually tell a difference in my sleep quality 'cause I go into a deep sleep and wake up like an ancient god that slept a thousand years. Best investment ever. Also cool sounds too." —Paloma G.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    32. A pack of light-dimming LED covers for those distracting bright and flashy lights on all of the electronics in your home. They work on everything from cable boxes to alarm clocks. You'll have a much better night's sleep and be able to focus on work without looking at that annoying light from the corner of your eye.

    Promising review: "I've been looking for something like this forever. I have a hard time falling and staying asleep when there is any bit of light in my bedroom. Especially the lights on phone chargers and my fan. Stumbled across these in a BuzzFeed article and figured what the heck. They came quickly, and I immediately put them to use. As the instructions state, you do have to use more than one depending on how much light you want to dim. I am not disappointed. Would highly recommend and will buy again." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $6.49.

    33. Fridge organizers because the same goes for chilled things, too, and having a go-to spot in the fridge will feel a lot less overwhelming when looking for dinner. These organizers also have handles so you can pull them out easily.

    Promising review: "Great for organizing. Bins are clear so you could easily see what you have and what you need.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four sizes and in packs of two, four, six, or eight).

    34. Glisten disposer cleaner to get rid of the nasty grunge and odor-causing buildup from every part of your garbage disposal — blades and walls included! It's less work for you, and I've gotta admit the foaming effect is pretty satisfying to watch, too.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Every time I ran the dishwasher there was this horrible smell. So much that you could smell it throughout the apartment. I even started just hand-washing my dishes. But after about a week, the smell came back. I bought so many products to try and eliminate the smell, but after a couple of days, it would come back. Then I saw this product on BuzzFeed and thought to myself, why not? The first time I used it cleaned it out pretty well. Better than the other products. But then I used it a second time, and there was no smell. I'm going on two weeks of using my dishwasher, and I can't smell anything. I highly recommend this if you're having the same problem I was. This is by far the best kitchen cleaning product I've ever purchased." —khrystyne torres

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98+ (available in four and 24-packs).

    35. Cute hanging baskets, because they can be used for mail, fruit, or even as a small planter (which gives this major bonus points IMO).

    Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I bought these based off the high ratings, and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" —Brad J. Leahy

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "I absolutely love Le Creuset for their brilliant colors that make me smile. The light interior helps me see what's going on at the cooking surface so I don't let things get burnt. This pot heats evenly, holds heat (or cold!) really well. I bake bread in it to develop good color and a great crust, stews and soups are a given, and the traditional pot roast meal. This one is a little small for a whole chicken or large turkey breast, but perfect for a regular pot of chili and smaller meals for just the two of us. I cook all kinds of seafood, meats, poultry, vegetarian meals, baking, cooktop, oven — even serve with it, filled with ice and topped with chilled shrimp for a crowd. (I've seen it used to keep salads (like potato salad) chilled for serving outside in summer.) YES, it is heavy, but well worth it. This is one of the most versatile tools in my kitchen. I don't know how I ever got by without it!" —Sunny Dreams

    "Forty-two years and five major moves worth of great use. I bought this 5.5 quart LC Dutch Oven at Macy's, San Francisco in January 1979. It has traveled with me to [numerous places]. It was used on gas stoves, electric ranges, campfires, and outdoor grills... It still works great." —John J.

    Promising review: "These storage bags are fantastic. I live in a small apartment where storage space is at a premium. I use these to store my Costco toilet paper and paper towels so I don't need to make as many trips to the store. It keeps them in pristine condition and out of sight. The handles make them easy to pull in and out, and they fold up nicely when not in use. I'm thinking about getting two more since four will fit under my queen bed." —Kimberly Dorn

    44. A high-quality chef's knife that's so good, it may replace your entire knife block. This knife is perfect for slicing, chopping, and dicing your heart away.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "I eat a primarily vegan diet, so I chop lots of vegetables! This knife has been great and has significantly reduced my food prep time because I can chop vegetables faster. With my other knives, I would sharpen them after every use but still they would be dull (just cheap knives), so it's so nice to have a quality chef's knife!"Tara

    "I've used the same knife for over five years. It's lightweight but substantial enough to offer good control, the grip is shaped and textured comfortably, and it holds an edge well and can be resharpened as needed. It's much better than most random cheap chef's knives from a big-box retailer or a knife block set." —Midbest

A simple voice command still turns it on if it is needed during the scheduled off times. Hopefully this will lower our electric bill over time." —StephSchiff

I love being able to mark what everything is. It saves me from having to use a Sharpie on stuff, as my handwriting is awful. For $35, how can you possibly go wrong?" —Drew211

    Promising review: "So I write this review to put all the bad ones to shame. This is the best vacuum I have ever used. If you are contemplating to get this vacuum, I highly recommend it. I’ll never go back to anything else. It’s built well, has great suction. It picked up a lot of my two dogs' hair (one big dog, one small dog), and also mind that two days ago I had my carpet professionally cleaned — now I’m questioning if they even did a really good job. The vacuum picked up a lot from my carpet, and I only vacuumed for a couple minutes. The only 'possible' negative I have is I wish it had a longer charge; however, I know what I signed up for by buying this one and not one that claims it lasts longer. All in all, I 100% recommend this product." —Chelsee Brooks

    Get it from Amazon for $399.99

    Promising review: "Perfect wake-up alarm! Sunshine! I love this little device! It was very easy to set up. Just follow the directions, step by step. It took five minutes. I set a schedule in the app so the curtains open at the same time my alarm goes off and they close in the evening. I’ve had it for about three months now. Working great." —Mollie

    Get it on Amazon starting at $99 (available in two colors and for curtain rods and U rails).

    51. A couch arm tray table that'll make chilling a lot easier. It can fit most flat arm rests and has a back side made of soft, non-slipping fabric to keep everything in place. (That phone rest is pretty cool, too, right?)

This truly kept my coffee warm for literal hours. And I love the wood grain look of it. It’s nice and doesn’t look cheap at all. I’m going to keep it on my desk for when I’m working, and I’ll never go without hot coffee again!" —ADR80
