    31 Things From Walmart That’ll Make Your Day-To-Day Feel More Productive In 2023

    Because if productivity wasn't your strong suit in 2022, this is your year.

    1. A Series 8 Apple watch because you're leaving your struggles with being on time (along with a few other bad habits in 2022). I know what you're thinking — it's just a watch. However, can just any watch tell time, track your workouts, change the music playing on your phone, call your mom, and measure your blood oxygen levels? Nope, didn't think so.

    2. A 12-month budget planner so you can actually stay on track with the financial goals that you set for this year. After one too many failed budgeting excel sheets, it's about time that you accept that you hate technology and putting pen to paper is the better solution for keeping up with your finances. Everything just isn't for everybody.

    3. A full gallon water bottle that'll help you take the guesswork out of your daily water intake once and for all. How many times did you lose count on your refills last year or was too lazy to keep refilling to meet your water goals? Too many times — do better this year.

    4. A stainless-steel mug so you can spend more time getting work done instead of reheating your coffee every 10 minutes. Drinks stay hot for up to five hours with this mug plus it has a splashproof lid so you can avoid any spills throwing you off your game while you're in the zone.

    5. A dry erase calendar whiteboard that will come in handy the next time you feel like you're forgetting to do something but quite frankly can't put your finger on it. No more forgetting birthdays or important doctors appointments. We both know plugging important dates into your phone calendar has not proven to be successful, so try this instead.

    6. A pack of junior legal pads just in case you're a bit traditional and would prefer to capture your thoughts on paper. Not only are they a perfect size to take with you on the go if you'd like, they have perforated edges so you can neatly rip away the papers when you need to.

    7. A single-serve coffee maker so you can make the perfect cup of joe every morning without worrying if the rest will go to waste. Not to mention you always wing the coffee ground to water ratio so this express machine will ensure you have a quality cup of coffee every time.

    8. A pair of Bluetooth, over-ear noise cancellation headphones so you can stay in the zone no matter if you're working from a cafe or working up a sweat at the gym. On another note, aren't you glad large headphones are in style again? They are superior, afterall.

    9. A 2-in-1 desk and exercise bike that helps you check off two of your biggest goals in one shot: excelling at work and getting active. This bike desk is here to help you change your lifestyle.

    10. A mesh desk organizer with three sliding drawers so you can organize that mess that you call a workspace. Now, you can keep up with the important mail you needed to respond to since last week and the million and one pens you can never find when you really need one.

    11. A mini cordless screwdriver so you can finally get around to all of those DIY and home improvement projects that you procrastinated on in the prior year. You officially have no reason to make excuses with this beginner-friendly, lightweight screwdriver.

    12. A programmable 6-quart slow cooker so you can stop making excuses to order out and make an actual wholesome meal instead. You can literally cook while you work towards all of your goals that you set for yourself this year. In conclusion, this is a need, not a want.

    13. A 200+ page guided journal because as much as you want to make it a habit to write down your thoughts, you sometimes don't know where to begin. This journal has prompts and exercises throughout to serve as thought starters so you never feel stuck. It's not just a journal, it's a way to unlock memories and tell your story as the name of the journal suggests.

    14. A set of clear, drawer style storage bins so you can finally organize all the spaces in your home that you swore you'd do earlier last year, starting with your tornado of a closet. You spend so much time looking for things that you end up exhausted and skip other items on your to-do list. This year, let's vow to do better because you know better.

    15. A convenient robot vacuum that will keep your hardwood floors, carpet, and everything in between spotless without you having to lift a finger. Vacuuming the house is probably one of your least favorite chores. Now you don't have to do the work (it empties and charges itself after every use): You can just hit the start button or use voice control to get it going.

    16. A powerful 2-in-1 steam iron because you hate wrinkles and I don't blame you. The wide head of the steamer allows you to release wrinkles from your clothes faster and more efficiently. You can use this device vertically as a steamer or horizontally as an iron — the choice is yours. Don't forget to switch out the metal plate for the bonnet for delicates or creaser attachment (depending on the garment you're working with).

    17. A mini rice cooker so you can put your days of messing up rice behind you once and for all. I'll be the first person to tell you that making rice is much easier than it looks. So stop torturing yourself and get you one of these ASAP.

    18. A 12-pack of colorful, smear-resistant highlighters because you have a ton of important documents and books to read this year and you need an effective way to keep note of the most important information.

    19. An Apple iPad Air so you can get with the times and stop lugging around heavy books, a laptop, and everything else that this lightweight device is capable of replacing. According to the internet, if you want to get your life together all you need to do is get an iPad. That may not be the complete truth but it's a start.

    20. ...and, of course, an Apple Pencil, so you can annotate and digital plan on your iPad like a pro. Don't cheat yourself — treat yourself.

    21. A 3-in-1 printer, copier, and scanner because you always find yourself needing one of the three at the most inconvenient moments. It's about time that you bite the bullet and put one in your home office. Stay ready so you don't have to get ready.

    22. A convenient foldable desk for the folks who don't have the space in their tiny apartments for a real desk but are fed up with working from the couch or dining room table. You can make pretty much any small space in your home a work area and pack up (or fold up, in this case) when you're done.

    23. An ergonomic mouse just in case you're experiencing pain in your hand and wrists from scrolling on your computer for hours on in. Yes, work needs to be done but not at the expense of damaging your poor joints. Grab this ASAP.

    24. A 20-pack of meal prep containers because eating healthy and making your own meals is a top priority for the year. Back away from the food delivery app and add these to your cart, NOW!

    25. A clinically tested smart scale just in case you're interested knowing information about your body outside just weight such as BMI and full body composition (body fat, water percentage, and muscle and bone mass). Not only does it give you more detailed information than a regular scale but you can also download the info as a PDF and share it with your doctor to create a personalized health plan.

    26. A self-watering plant globe so you can keep your thirsty plants quenched while you're tackling the many other things on your to-do list. This will be the year that you finally get a green thumb even if you have to rely on these for a bit of help. Grab as many as you need.

    27. A lightweight portable monitor because you know you can get more done with two screens, however, a bulky old school monitor overwhelms the heck out of you. Also, you like changing scenery and could use this monitor wherever you are in your home or even at your favorite local cafe if you desire.

    28. A 3-in-1 wireless charging station so you can keep your most important devices (your phone, AirPods, and Apple Watch) charged without having to track down cords for each. Word of advice — don't go to bed without making sure your devices are properly placed on their new home.

    29. An aesthetically pleasing dual toaster oven and air fryer so you can cook delicious meals in record time. Part of the reason why you struggle to cook regularly is the time you have to commit to it. This powerful appliance has 11 preset functions and requires less time (and sweat) in the kitchen.

    30. A bottle of lavender and Epsom salt because after a long, productive week you need to unwind with a warm bath so you can reset. I love that you're starting the year off on a productive note but be sure not to tire yourself out. You still have 11 months to go.

    31. ...and Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones, a book of tools to help you achieve any goal that you set and live your best life in 2023 and beyond.
