    34 Things That'll Make You Say, "Well, There Goes All My Money"

    Floating bookshelves, a vegan body scrub formulated for your booty, over-the-knee boots that are currently 50% off, and more! Much more!

    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. Floating shelves because while an at-home library is in your future (I PROMISE!), you'll currently have to use every inch of wall space to showcase your current book collection.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely fantastic. They also come with all the materials (minus screwdriver) you need to hang them, they're very durable (I put about five hardcover novels on each) and I could probably put a few more on." —Laura

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $23.99.

    2. Playing cards that look like they belong in a drawing room, to be played by men in suits smoking cigars and drinking whiskey. Vintage luxury = these sophisticated beauties.


    Promising review: "Wow, are these beautiful! I'll never buy 'cheap' cards again. Basic cards can be found for four to five dollars. HOWEVER, for a little more, I can get cards with better designs, better paper, better feel, and with metallic elements???" —Kevin Mckay

    Get them from Amazon for $9.79.

    3. A vegan body scrub formulated with coffee, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and orange oil to nourish and improve circulation in your body — and yes, that includes your gluteus maximus.


    Promising review: "This coffee scrub has the most amazing, invigorating scent that really wakes you up during your morning shower! Smells like a nice fresh pot of coffee! It is the perfect amount of coarse because it feels like it is really exfoliating your body, but it does not hurt or leave your skin red. The coffee sent does not linger on your skin too long (I was nervous it might mix weird with my perfume). As soon as I dried off, the scent went away and I was left with soft, smooth skin!" —Sandra E. Swiertz

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90.

    4. An overflow drain cover for the Lush bath bomb aficionado who has yet to own a luxurious tub. You'll get that clawfoot one day, but for now? This cover will add extra inches of water to your soak.


    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four-foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. A delicious dessert book packed with recipes from the delicious Momofuku Milk Bar, a bakery known for their cereal milk ice cream, "compost" cookies, and **excuse the drool** layered birthday cakes., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is now my go-to cookie and cake cookbook! Extraordinary burst of flavor in every bite. The recipes are amazing! This is one talented pastry chef I continue to follow. Thank you, Chef Christina!" —Judy

    Get it from Amazon for $21.49 or find a copy at your local library.

    6. Rose gold heart earrings you'll want to present to any die-hard fan of The Bachelor (despite how ridiculous you think the show is).


    Promising review: "These are lovely! My daughter is thrilled with them. I'm going to order a bunch more to keep around the house for last-minute birthday or hostess gifts." —cocobeene

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    7. A French press coffee maker that will have you saying bean there, done that to your local Starbucks. Those baristas? They'll have nothing on the cup of caffeination you'll be making at home.


    This French press is made with a durable, heat-resistant, insulated stainless steel that keeps your coffee HOT, a stainless steel plunger and two layers of mesh filters to preserve the full flavor of your coffee, and is *phew* dishwasher-safe. Just add ground coffee, hot water, press, and BAM! Grab yourself a mug.

    Promising review: "My husband and I have been scratching our heads, wondering where this has been all our lives! It makes the best, most flavorful and full-bodied coffee we've ever made at home. Plus, it's gorgeous and easy to clean." —Alka Chandna

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    8. Over-the-knee boots capable of making your ~I just rolled out of bed~ ensemble seem 10x more chic. Unintentionally ripped leggings and your old high school sweatshirt? Consider them trendy when worn with these shoes.


    Promising review: "These are the perfect suede over-the-knee boots! They're great over pants, with skirts, or dresses. They're super comfortable, too. I've worn them non-stop since getting them!" —CarolineJo1

    Get them from Nordstrom for $49.96 (originally $99.95, available in sizes 5-12 and in two colors).

    9. Organic pressed teas that will dissolve right in your cup! These adorable drops are made with finely-sourced, loose leaf organic teas, spices, and raw sugar that make for a delicious treat.


    This sampler set comes with energizing matcha green tea, calming rose earl grey, refreshing citrus ginger, and cooling sweet peppermint flavors.

    Promising review: "As a tea addict, I was surprised at how much I loved these drops! Simply drop the tea drop in boiling water and viola, a perfect cup. They are perfectly sweetened, not too sweet, and are just a fun and easy way to make tea. These would make such a cute wedding favor or even to serve them at a tea party." —Stephenia Bosch

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. AND! A honey jar and dipper so adorable, you'll find yourself gorging on honey 365 days a year just so you can constantly use it.


    Promising review: "This is one of the prettiest honey jars I’ve ever seen. The lid sits nicely on top, the volume is the perfect amount for everyday use, and the dipper is also made of glass which I really like." —jpmonterey

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    I should also mention that these perfumes are vegan, cruelty-free, and the perfect size for stashing in your purse!

    Promising review: "This lemon blossom perfume has a light and pleasant aroma that isn’t too heavy for the average workplace. The perfume does smell like freshly-zested lemons, but does not have the sickly sweet smell that so many lemon perfumes have. On average, one bottle will last me a month when applied daily. Additionally, I have very sensitive skin and this perfume does not cause any irritation." —CV

    Get them from Amazon for $9.19+ (available in 12 scents).

    13. A callus scrubber that will leave your piggies feeling so soft and smooth, even a baby's bottom will begin to feel threatened by the competition.

    Promising review: "This may be my best purchase I've ever made! Seriously. I've tried all of the other foot products and honestly, they didn't do the job. This rasp has transformed my feet in the most amazing ways!!!! I had thick, ugly skin on the bottoms of my feet but after just one use, the results of this file were dramatic! This is worth 10x the price." —Bethzz

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    Promising review: "I love this little ice scraper! Fits in the glove compartment or in the side of the car door and it works perfectly for Minnesota winters. It's easy to control and the blade is even, meaning the ice is cleared out of the way in one go." —Matthew V.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A velvet bodycon dress you'll want to pair with a gallon of water, my friends, because this? This is what those pesky millennials would call "fire".

I won't be without this ever again." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    20. A hanging storage unit ideal for tiny kitchens and closet-sized bathrooms that are seriously lacking in storage space. This provides six rows of much-needed ROOM.


    Promising review: "I wanted to organize my food pantry and saw this would allow me to utilize closet space more efficiently. It was easy to assemble and is perfect for my pantry! I was skeptical at first because the baskets are plastic, but don't let that fool you. One basket can hold several cans and it is very sturdy. I would highly recommend this to anyone." —MWitty

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $65+ (available in twin, full, queen, king, and California king sizes).

    26. Vegan and cruelty-free deodorant wipes formulated with coconut milk, witch hazel, and shea butter to block out all Pepé Le Pew-level odors. / Via @pacificabeauty

    Promising review: "I have always suffered from bad odor on my underarms because I have very delicate skin, so I can't use strongly-scented deodorants. I'm always trying out cream deodorant or gels, but it either irritates my skin or it doesn't stop my bad odor. THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION EVER. I LOVE IT! I can't believe that something finally works! My armpits don't smell bad; I can finally move my arms freely. The scent is wonderful, I love the smell, and it is not harsh on my skin. Even after a long day, my underarms are still smelling like coconut." —Patricia

It slides up and down easily, and it;s vey stable when standing open which makes it easy for me to get the color I need. I love it so much that I'll probably purchase another one." —CraftyFairy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    29. OR! A luxe custom leather pencil case to fool everyone into thinking you shop at Muji for expensive pencils and smooth ballpoint pens.

    This suction-backed, mildew-resistant will prevent all "help I've fallen and can't get up" moments.

    Promising review: "BEST BATH MAT EVER! I have been looking everywhere for an ACTUAL non-slip bath mat, and this is it. My boyfriend has psoriasis and puts coconut oil on in the shower...
