    1. A super loud, vibrating alarm clock for anyone who needs instant chaos in the morning to get them out of bed. You will NEVER want to hit the snooze button on this thing.

    2. A pair of tabletop cereal dispensers if you wasted so much time sitting on the edge of your bed before work, cooking breakfast is absolutely out of the question.

    3. A portable laptop desk in case your actual desk is a little too intimidating. People still working remotely can use this to gently ease into their day from the comfort of their couch.

    4. And a handy keyboard cleaning brush so your keys won't stick when you type. It'll make your key strokes and your workflow a whole lot smoother (and your workday a little less excruciating).

    5. An inexpensive 2-quart cold brew maker that BuzzFeed has been sharing with the world for ages. How else do you think we crank out so many lists a day?! The power of cold caffeine!!

    8. And a deck of affirmation cards to motivate you if you still can't seem to get out of your own way. It's okay! We all have trouble getting started sometimes.

    9. A bamboo charging station so the battery life of your devices will no longer be an excuse to procrastinate. Everything will be fully charged and ready for you to hit the ground running.

    10. And a set of clear food containers, so leaving your post to grab lunch is no longer an excuse either. Just pop your meal prepped food in the microwave, enjoy, and get back to work!

    11. A calming four-tier fountain if your issue is that there's just too much going on for you to focus. The soothing sounds of trickling water will calm your mind and help you concentrate on the task at hand.

    13. A habit calendar to track how well you've been doing in breaking your procrastination. Just create a tangible goal — like a set time you'd like to get out of bed every morning — and track how consistent you've been throughout the month.

    14. A tiny Magic 8 Ball that'll make tough decisions for you. Spoiler: Yes, you should complete that task *before* starting the next episode of whatever show you're bingeing.

    15. An upscale cocktail glass to make you feel like Don Draper in Mad Men while you work — remember how productive that guy was with a little bit of scotch in his system?

    16. A bag carrier that'll make the grocery shopping you've been putting off a little less painful. The longer you wait to shop, the more bags you wind up having to carry. No need to torture your fingers just because you avoided the grocery store for a month.
