    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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Set alarms to make sure you're sticking to a schedule! This is especially great at forcing you to sign on *and* off at the proper times whilst working from home β€” it can be easy to chip in longer hours when you're not commuting ("I'm going to get a head start" I've often said at 7 a.m.), but setting a strict schedule will help you set boundaries and get more done.

    And in the same vein, turn off Slack and email notifications when your hours are done. It becomes too tempting to just "answer one more email," which makes separation between work and leisure time extra impossible.

    Plus, this hack is applicable for any task β€” whether it's for allotting screen time or reminding yourself that the laundry needs to be folded.

    2. Throw on plaid knit leggings for a look that one-ups your favorite black yoga bottoms (but is still significantly more comfortable than any of the denim residing in your Ikea drawers).

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these pants. I have them in the black and the dark blue wash. They go with everything and are so comfortable that I want to wear them every day! I usually wear premium denim but I am reaching for these now. The price is definitely right at $20. They look good with boots, flip-flops, or tennis shoes. If you’re on the fence, get these." β€”DM Lover

    Get them from Amazon for $22.90 (available in sizes XS–XXL in short, regular, and long and 8 colors).

    FYI, if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can give this a spin before you buy it!

    3. Make "cleaning" as easy as one, two, spritz with a no-scrub Wet & Forget cleaner. This no-rinse product should be used weekly to keep your shower free of mildew, which basically means it will take all of two seconds to feel like you've deep-cleaned the place in which you bathe.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." β€”Stephanie Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    4. Obtain the ballerina bun of your dreams by way of these Goody hair pins β€” just one pin can do the work of up to *20* hair pins. How does it work, you ask? Just secure your hair into a ponytail, pull it into a super tight bun, spin the pins into place, and BAM! You've got yourself the perfect updo.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." β€”Tina

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.29.

    5. Cackle in the face of coffee rings by way of a reversible waterproof desk mat β€” because if you don't have a space large enough to accommodate a fancy WFH set-up? Well, same. But slapping this bebe on your living room coffee table at least gives the *feeling* of typing away at a genuine office desk.

    Promising review: "I'm an art teacher, and working from home during the coronavirus outbreak was going to put a lot of strain on my wood desk (which I keep mostly for show but now am forced to use for work). I ordered this desk pad because mint green is my favorite color, and I wanted something to protect my desk from paint and other art supplies. It arrived today, and it was so cute! It's exactly what I wanted. It's thin enough not to add too much bulk to the desk, the color is so fun, and it wipes off easily. I love that it's reversible, too, so I'll probably use one side for making tutorial videos for my classes and the other for when I'm painting. I was worried that it wouldn't lie flat because it came rolled up, but it lay flat immediately. And it came with a cute little belt in case I need to roll it back up again and store it!" β€”Jill S

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two sizes and six colors).

    6. Bliss = being able to remove the plastered pet fur on your black leggings within seconds. Pick up every speck of gunk that's attached itself to your clothing via this lint remover, a beast at making plain black tees look crisp and straight out of the dryer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using this, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." β€”Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    7. Pair a plain tee with high-waisted palazzo trousers, pants guaranteed to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ whilst you strut to your corner deli. These are available in neutral and vibrant hues alike, making it look as if you didn't snooze through your alarm this morning.

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it :)" β€”Nash

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 26 colors).

    8. Apply a pea-sized amount of of Glossier Skin Tint, which is known for having a breathable formula that blurs pores and lightly covers redness without feeling feeling like your typical foundation β€” in other words, this doesn't feel like you're wearing a layer of product. In fact, it feels like nothing at all.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I've been using Glossier products for a few years now, but I wasn't interested in trying the skin tint for a long time. I thought it would be too sheer, too oily feeling, and too messy. I have blemishes, scarring and redness. I eventually got it because heck, it was one of the couple Glossier products I haven't tried yet. I DONT KNOW WHY I WAITED SO LONG. This is THE skin tint. It smoothes, seriously evens everything out, brightens and makes you look awake and healthy. It's not messy at all, nor is it greasy whatsoever. It blends amazingly well, so much that it's undetectable. I just wish this came in more shades because I seem to be between light and medium... but I like it so much that I'll buy medium to mix with light. And isn't the packaging just adorable?! Five stars." β€”Sara

    Get it from Glossier for $26 (available in 12 shades).

    9. Another way to ensure a quick breakfast (unlike those irksome TV characters who have a bite of toast and say "gotta run" to the parent who has just prepared a gourmet meal)? Prepping frozen fruit every Sunday β€” just measure ingredients, pop 'em in a reusable Stasher bag, and store in your freezer! These smoothie recipes are delicious, simple, and will take no more than a few minutes to prepare.

    BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been needing a container to hold my prepped smoothies in the freezer and this is the perfect solution. I avoid plastic, so this is a great substitution. My fruit doesn't stick to the sides of the pouch and it can hold the perfect amount of fruit for one large smoothie. Happy with this purchase." β€”Anna Young

    Get the Stasher bags from Amazon for $8.50+ (available in multiple colors and sizes).

    10. Scoff in the face of deep wrinkles with a mini fabric steamer. Yes, you just pulled this button-down out of the hamper! No, you don't have anything else to wear! A quick run with this steamer (it heats up in 90 seconds flat) means a crisp blouse that looks as if it were just picked up from the cleaners.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am beyond thrilled with this little gizmo. It has worked wonders on everything in my closet from delicate chiffon and poly-blends, to heavier cotton and wool-blends. I have even steamed stubborn wrinkles from blazers and purses and linen. I considered purchasing a larger steamer, but they tend to be clumsy, heavy and difficult to maneuver. This steamer is perfect. And for frequent refills, I simply keep a pitcher of water nearby. For the price, you can't beat it." β€”Savvy Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97.

    To learn more, check out "I’m Not Joking, This Mini Clothing Steamer Will Help You Be A Better Adult."

    11. Opt for nonconstrictive support with a Hanes wire-free bra β€” it's designed with a second skin feel so comfortable, it *will* be worn all the time. Willingly. Like, you will actually want to wear this.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I haven’t worn another bra since I got this and I’m gonna buy, like, five more. I am a 34F/G and I’ve never found any bralette that fit me (always either too big in the band or too small in the cup). I got a medium and I’m SHOCKED to report that not only do my girls actually fit inside (the fabric has a lot of stretch), but it actually holds them up pretty well." β€”Lily Housh

    Get it from Amazon for $10.07+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 6 colors).

    12. Give yourself a lovely flush of pink *and* non-sticky moisture thanks to the vitamins A, C, and E found in Nooni Appleberry Lip Oil. It's even packed with apple water and raspberry extract to slough away the dead skin that would inevitably result in a chapped pout.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't remember who first told me about this lip oil, but it seemed like the perfect solution to my multi-year search of trying to find a lip product that enhanced my natural lip color while keeping my lips moisturized. It's not too sticky and lasts longer than a typical "gloss." It's a fairly small bottle, but that also makes it great to keep in a wristlet. The appleberry is also sheer enough to pair over a lip crayon or lip liner." β€”Sammi Cone

    Get it from Amazon for $8.16+.

    13. Swap sweats with fleece-lined faux leather leggings that look so. damn. chic. Mama loves comfy clothes that fool the masses into thinking I tried (mama in this context = me), and these provide a top quality dupe for more expensive versions.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late-night Amazon shopping spree. They don't look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape well and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!" β€”Kelly C. Albanese

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X Regular and Tall and in four styles).

    14. Sitting for 8+ hours a day does not do the body good (shoutout to everyone who has worked from home since March). Carve out a chunk of me time and dedicate it to exercise β€” this 20-minute workout is fast, easy to follow, and doesn't require any equipment.

    Photos by Lauren Zaser for BuzzFeed / Design by Chris Ritter for BuzzFeed

    15. Enlist the help of L'Oreal Paris Makeup True Match Lumi Glotion to brighten your complexion in a jiffy. This glycerin- and shea butter-infused formula is super lightweight and hydrating, while an illuminating tint adds instant glow.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is great for a quick and easy daily look. As a mom of both human and animal children that is constantly on the go, this highlighting lotion is honestly the only thing I've been putting on each day. It makes me feel awake and look like I tried without all the effort." β€”ALEX

    Get it from Amazon for $11.44 (available in four shades).

    16. Lounge in luxury via this matching set comprised of a cropped, bralette-inspired top and (more importantly) uber fuzzy shorts. What shall we be wearing to the 90th Harry Potter marathon of the year with our significant others? The below. Obviously.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    17. If you *must* wear jeans in order to feel put-together, wearing these pull-on Levi Strauss ones will do the trick! They look like your typical hunk of denim, but you'd be surprised to know they are shockingly comfortable (and ensure you can wear jeans sans button digging into your belly button).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    There have been important WFH days in which I literally had to change out of sweatpants β€” pulling on denim was the equivalent of chugging yet another cup of coffee because it immediately put me in meeting mode.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but these are easily the best jeans I have ever owned in my life and I had to share!!! They fit perfectly in every way to the point where I can't believe these aren't custom made for me. They are incredibly comfortable without sacrificing the look of real jeans and the tummy panel is FANTASTIC. On top of all of that, these are more comfortable than my leggings. I'm in love with these pants and will be purchasing the rest of the colors to replace every other pair of jeans I own." β€”Anonymous

    Get them from Amazon for $17.44+ (available in sizes 28-32 and in short, regular, and tall lengths and eight colors).

    18. I think I speak for all of us when I say blessed be the TikTok. Try out these simple hacks to instantly upgrade your 'fit. Example one: Tuck an oversized sweatshirt into a sports bra for a chic cropped silhouette.

    20. You're not ready to retire the Ugg boots you purchased seven years ago? Fair enough. Use this four-sided cleaning brush to remove the scuff marks and salt stains that have invaded your suede shoes for an instantly more polished look.

    amazon.com

    This brush has a welt surface, nylon bristles, an arched half circle brush, and a protruding brush that lets you clean different kinds of suede with no harsh rubbing or scrubbing required.

    Promising review: "I was amazed. After spending about five minutes cleaning suede boots with fairly significant smudges, they came out almost completely clean and are looking really good." β€”Beth Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. Prevent clutter in your living space (and stop telling yourself you'll "do it later") by following the one-minute rule. Basically, this motto means tackling mundane tasks that take 60 seconds or less β€” whether that's making your bed or putting that coffee mug in the dishwasher.

    ZoΓ« Burnett / BuzzFeed, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    It'll be so much easier to focus on work when you don't have these annoying to-dos hanging over your head!

    To learn more, check out "I Lived By The One-Minute Rule For An Entire Week".

    22. Nip brassiness in the bud with a cult-favorite Fanola purple shampoo. The violet pigment in this formula works to wash away unwanted yellow in your 'do, meaning you can extend the time between salon visits β€” and the benefits of that are two-fold. You'll save a ton of money on appointments, plus won't have to subject your hair to additional bleaches and dye that will (I'm sorry to tell you this) cause additional damage.

    three photos of reviewer hair showing the loss of brassiness from left to right
    amazon.com

    Use this only once a week (for about three minutes at a time) to prevent your hair from turning a slightly lavender shade.

    Promising review: "Finally! A purple shampoo that actually does something to my brassy hair! I have silver-white hair that is exceptionally hard to maintain due to how easily my hair gains brassy tones and how stubborn they are to remove. I've tried a ton of other brands, and none of their toning shampoos will do a damn thing to my hair even if I leave them on for an hour. I normally have to dilute violet direct dyes to make a dent in my brass. It's nice to not have to schedule a chunk of time to mix a batch of custom toner, painstakingly apply it, and then sit around for an hour while it does its stuff. This shampoo actually works really well and can cut a lot of time out of my bi-weekly color maintenance." β€”Audrey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    23. Tackle one dreadful organization task a week and check the interwebz for any shortcuts. Personal example: My bookshelf has been a disaster since 2003. Organizing by color (or taking the minimalist approach) is shockingly easy and takes *checks watch* no more than 15 minutes.

    BuzzFeed Nifty, BuzzFeed

    24. For the person who'd rather do one million push-ups than wait for lacquer to dry, give yourself an at-home mani with Kiss nail adhesives. Just peel, press on, and that is it. No more sitting in salon chairs, no more bed sheet marks because the polish never properly dried.

    reviewer wearing red press-on nails
    amazon.com

    This kit comes with 30 different nail sizes and six accent nails to accommodate different nail sizes, and removal is a breeze β€” just soak your nails in polish remover for about a minute before gently peeling off the adhesive. Reviewers swear they also last for at least three weeks β€” I think that says enough.

    Promising review: "OMG! These are great! I did not believe they would last as long as gels or acrylic nails, but they did. I put them on in less than five minutes and wore them for over two weeks. They are thinner than acrylics and look really natural." β€”Kelly Berner

    Get this set from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. Throw on a ribbed V-neck top to look très chic while exerting no effort to get there. This baby is practically *begging* to be worn with high-waisted leggings thanks to its cropped silhouette.

    reviewer wearing the taupe top
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My newest favorite top! Its flattering and it feels really cozy! The material is soft and lightweight but not sheer. The color and fit is perfect for fall, and for lounging around the house in winter." β€”Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors).

    26. Blur pores and stop greasy T-zones in their tracks with Wowder Finishing Powder, which provides a dewy finish that's not *too* dewy. And unlike most setting powders, this mattifying formula won't settle into your pores for that dreadful chalky effect.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy this. I already have high end loose powders. I didn't think this one could really be that different,,, but it is! The powder is soooooo fine and instantly mattes any shine without looking weird on the skin. I like to use mine on my T-zone area where i tend to be a lil' too shiny. Also it doesn't hurt that the packaging is super cute!" β€”Savanah

    Get it from Glossier for $22 (available in five shades).

    27. Doing the dishes is the bane of your existence! I get it! I'm right there with you! But household chores become much less daunting when you have a designated time for 'em. Instead, come up with a weekly cleaning routine to cut back on work day distractions (and write it down on a magnetic whiteboard).

    Alice Mongkongllite / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "My favorite thing about it is that it's not pre-labeled with like the word CHORES or something tacky. I really just wanted a list of regular household tasks that I do and a way to keep track of the last time I did each of them. I write the last date that I did something (for instance, vacuum or clean the windows) in the boxes provided, and that way I know how long it's been in an effort to prioritize certain tasks during a busy week. It's great. I just wish it were even bigger! I'll eventually buy another one because I keep thinking of new things to add." β€”M. Sorcic

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    28. Wear some no-show socks to prevent clashing fabrics from peeking out over the top of your lace-up sneakers! These comfy bad boys even have a silicone backing on your heel which translates to πŸ‘ no πŸ‘ more πŸ‘ slipping πŸ‘ socks πŸ‘.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Dang, these are great socks. I wear them with sneakers where I don't want my socks peeking out of my shoes! The secret sauce is the tiny rubber band at the back of the heel. Without it, the socks would continually fall down, ending up in an uncomfortable bunch around my toes. But with the rubber bit, they stay put all day!" β€”CK

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in packs of three, six, and nine).

    29. Use a cable management box to hide unsightly wires that cause heartache by just looking at them. The tangles! The never-ending tangles! They're more than I can personally handle, so I will be hiding them with this box: It's the more efficient tech equivalent of "the chair."*

    before pic of a messy cable strip then after of the box containing the same power strip but looking much neater
    Amazon

    *THE chair that becomes the spot in which you store all of your clean laundry for weeks on end.

    Promising review: "This box does the trick. I'm able to place a few cords in here and the only thing I would change is to make it so the top stays on; maybe a groove it has to slide through so it can't fall off. It looks nice and it works well." β€”Gigi

    Get it from Amazon for $15.51. Check out an option that'll blend in with wood floors.

    30. Get glossy, frizz-free curls on second (or third or fourth or tenth) day hair with Cake Beauty The Curl Friend Defining Cream. A blend of shea butter and lightweight natural oils provide a ton of moisture but thankfully none of the weigh-down.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the most reasonably priced curly hair product I've found. I originally got a little tube from my Ipsy order, and I liked it so much, I came to Amazon to order a full-sized bottle. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or greasy, even if I accidentally put too much on. My curls look natural and bouncy after using my diffuser, and even when I let hair air dry, this gives my curls a little extra form and structure to look like I actually did something to my hair." β€”sbgoodgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    31. Quickly touch up your brows with a Schick dermaplaning razor, a tool sent from heaven for people who are done with the pains of plucking and the expense of waxing. This quickly rids stray brow hairs and unwanted peach fuzz (while ridding your complexion of dead skin to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion), that way you know you're beginning the day with perfectly-groomed facial caterpillars that only took three seconds to tame.

    amazon.com

    And don't panic! This tool is super gentle, so you don't have to worry about accidental nicks and scrapes.

    Promising review: "This is a 100% painless and incredibly easy alternative to waxing or plucking. A few quick swipes gets rid of peach fuzz and I never have to worry about breaking out because of it. Also, it doesn't make hair grow back coarser or darker." β€”Ellen R.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    32. Turn any bra into a no-show racerback with the help of these handy dandy adjustable clip holders. Long gone will be the days of β€”> put on shirt β€”> bra shows β€”> take off shirt to change bra β€”> put shirt back on again. Not to be dramatic, but these clips will change your life when you're in a rush (which is always), not to mention these will make any ensemble will look 10x more crisp without colorful straps peeking through.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My bra straps spend more time off my shoulders than on β€” but NOT ANYMORE. I was hoping something like this existed and when I found it, I was so happy. They're as glorious as I expected them to be. These are life-changing." β€”Amanda

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $5.47+ (available in six colors).

    33. Up the WFH 'fit ante with this linen jumpsuit β€” it's designed with an adjustable tie-waist and snazzy pockets, the latter of which is great for ensuring that your cell phone remain neatly nestled beside you (no more disappearing between couch cushions and under pillows because OMG, that frustration).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you’re thinking about buying this, DO IT. It fits really comfortably. Just enough room in the hips to sit and chase after my daughter without feeling like I’m going to tear a seam (this isn’t a super stretchy fabric). The tie around the front is just long enough and is perfect for accentuating the waist." β€”J&R Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    34. Plain black leggings? Your old high school gym tee? Fancy it up by way of a cotton sweater-blazer, here to make it look like you put actual effort into your appearance this morning. Snooze? Never heard of it.

    35. Take yourself from bedtime ready to professional chic by layering this removable collar under any comfy old sweater. So simple, so transformative, and the gorgeous embellishments give you just a hint of sparkle.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this shirt collar! I can wear it under tunic tops or long sweaters when at work or for dressier occasions. What a great find and a perfect addition to any outfit!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    36. Or! Try an An edge control gel to help lay your edges and slick back baby hairs with just a few flicks of product. Major bonus points: It won't flake or leave behind any residue, which is *heart eyes* the definition of perfection in our book.

    amazon.com

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out, "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "Hands-down! The best edge control I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. Stayed all day! No flakes and nongreasy! And this one is not even the strongest in the line. Love this product!" β€”Seabea2013

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in four sizes).

    37. Provide your peepers with the jojoba, vitamin E, and cucumber found in e.l.f., Illuminating Eye Cream! One swipe bids dark circles and fine lines adieu, which means you'll feel as if you completed an entire 10-step skincare routine this a.m. (even though you certainly didn't).

    Amazon

    Luxe eye creams usually cost around a trillion dollars, so finding a holy grail item like this for ~$10 is basically like striking gold.

    Promising review: "What? Just $10!? I was skeptical but this is GREAT! I have purchased and used very expensive eye creams ranging from $50 to over $150 for a single product. Try this. You will like it." β€”Hadley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.

    38. So the eyes aren't the window to the soul, it's actually your brows. This cruelty-free Elizabeth Mott brow gel has a pomade formula to keep your brows in place while subtly filling them in, immediately giving your ensemble an air of ~I am put together can’t you see my brows look good~. The best part? It's so easy. No expert drawing skills required (unlike your regular brow pencil).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So incredibly happy with this. It's incredibly easy to apply (I have to really wipe my wand first, though, or else it's too thick) and the color blends in SO well with my natural color. It gives my eyebrows JUST the right amount of attention; not too much, not too little. Just killer, natural, beautiful brows!" β€”Monique French
