    1. A one line a day journal that recognizes you *may* be too busy to jot down your entire life story on the daily. This encourages you to sum up your day with just a line or two for five years...

    Amazon, amazon.com

    ...meaning you'll be able to compare where you are right NOW to where you were last year, on this specific date, on the dot.

    Promising review: "You will never regret buying this journal. I have always been a huge proponent of journaling. I journal everyday. I reread my old journals weekly. I love writing. This journal is a great way to ease yourself into journaling if it is an idea you’re exploring but are nervous to completely delve in. It is a huge commitment; I won’t lie, I occasionally go a few days without writing a few words. But being able to compare the years throughout your life is amazing. I wish I’d been doing this since I learned to write. If you’re thinking about getting this journal, do. It is my most prized material possession." β€”Samantha Bone

    Get it from Amazon for $10.63.

    2. A Neutrogena clarifying shampoo because that ten pounds of dry shampoo you used two days ago is still trapped in your roots, but have no fear! This anti-residue wash deep cleans build-up that would otherwise lead to lack of body, excessive grease, and *gulp* stringiness.

    Amazon

    This non-irritating shampoo should be used once a week (using it too much may make your hair overly dry) and is gentle enough to use on any hair type, including color-treated manes!

    Promising review: "I bought this because of the low price, but it is AMAZING! It smells heavenly, it clarifies my scalp thoroughly, and definitely gets rid of build-up. I use it once every two weeks. You HAVE to follow up with a very moisturizing deep conditioner, let it sit for a while then comb through your hair. It's a new staple for me." β€”NickyC

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

    3. A racerback sports bra comfy enough for sleep, but supportive enough for gym. Who needs underwire poking into their ribcage? Not us.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have always hated bras, but they are a necessary evil for me...so I usually just stick to sports bras. I have struggled to find ones that not only fit right, but have the amount of hold and comfort I need. These are the best of all worlds! They aren't too tight but give the right amount of support, they fit my cup size perfectly (I ordered the 3XL), and the colors work under all my clothes." β€”Rachel Anderson

    Promising review: "I just woke up to this alarm clock for the first time and WOW is it effective. It's so loud that it not only wakes me up, but it scares the day lights out of me so that I jump out of bed too. No falling back asleep with this one around! Besides the extremely effective alarm, it is darn cute. I wanted to cut back on the digital items in my bedroom, and this is an attractive way to do so. It's built very well, so it doesn't feel cheap." β€”Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Holy cow! This stuff WORKS! I had been using regular packing tape to patch up my screen door that was riddled with holes and tears, but those mosquitoes were making their way in...and it looked terrible. I picked up a roll of this just to check it out and, man, the repair is practically like I installed a new screen! I did install it on the outside (I think it works better that way), and my door looks MUCH more normal now with not a single weak spot." β€”Steven

    Promising review: "I used this during a trip to Belize where I was exposed to the sun, salt water, and chlorine all day. I would add a little spritz to my hair when coming out of the water and my comb would glide right through it. It detangles very well and has an awesome smell. At the end of the trip, my hair was soft and shiny with no damage at all." β€”mfrance74

    Promising review: "I have, like, a thousand blush/lip tints and this is the only one I use anymore.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.66.

    Promising review: "This little cutie makes a great waffle! My daughter is very picky, but she loves to make the mix and eat the finished heart-shaped product.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure the lids in my cupboard all wake up when we go to sleep, planning the next morning’s revolt against us humans.

An unexpected bonus is that, since I can see at a glance what I have in there, I have been able to inventory and discard things that I do not wear often, plus have re-discovered goodies that I had forgotten about." β€”C.F.C.

All skin irritation and bumps will vanish.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that.

BEST purchase my limited paycheck was ever used on. Fill 'er up with wilted salad bar spinach, crappy orange juice, a grainy apple, some ice, and BOOM...a shake is born. No need to head back to my dorm to plug it into a wall-socket base like most blenders. To my amazed friends, I am now the wizard of smoothies. They all want one now!" β€”Adrianna Simmons

    Promising review: "It's amazing what a difference this bird can make in your pie! I definitely made the best apple pie I've ever made with this little device. For the first time ever, my pie did not spill out onto the pan below or into the stove, and the crust was flaky and crisper than it has ever been. I really cannot speak high enough of how well this pie bird worked." β€”happylakedreamer

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best gadget ever! I work in a clothing retail store and I'm constantly on the move. I was wearing my reading glasses on my head or hanging them on the front of my shirt, which would cause my glasses to constantly fall down and get scratched. Sometimes, I would lose track of them.

Plus, the design looks sleek and modern and will probably match any kitchen." β€”Mar-Bar

    Get it from Amazon for $17.89.

    27. A micro needle roller that is MUCH more affordable (we’re talking an $80 difference) than other rollers on the market, but equally as effective. This is heaven-sent for helping with scarring and indentations caused by cystic acne, and can improve the effectiveness of all the products in your skincare regime. (Go you for having a regime, btw!)

    Promising review: "This completely revamped my unorganized, messy cupboard. I can now actually find my tea without everything toppling out of the cupboard (no more me angrily shoving tea boxes back up there) β€” I can just easily pull this out and grab my tea without any annoyance!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best formulation for matte lipstick I've tried. I love the wand, the color, the packaging, the smell, the staying power, the way it feels on my lips.

I'm a nurse and I work 12+ hours. I only touch up ONCE in my shift (after I eat lunch). Drinking coffee and water doesn't affect the wear." β€”Anne Marie

    Promising review: "I have a number of necklaces with clasps so tiny that I have trouble connecting them, so I was looking for magnets that would be strong enough to support a chain and pendant that were fairly valuable. This turned out to be a winner! I can sleep and shower with it on and never have to worry about it becoming detached. I actually have to tug a bit to get it to unlatch." β€”EDC

    Get it from Amazon for $16.52.

    34. A mini skillet perfect for cooking (and cleaning up after) a party of one. This is large enough to make your favorite meal, but small enough to easily store away and it won't take up your entire sink when you don't feel like washing it right away.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Omg. Holy moly, this is so good. I haven’t been able to find a holy grail for my eyebrows because all the ones I’ve tried would either make my eyebrows too dramatic, or the color wouldn't quite match. But this one?
