    1. A customizable calendar pad to remind you of all your daily responsibilities, because we all know the most annoying part about adult tasks is having to rush to complete the ones you forgot about.

    Promising review: "Great for long-term planning. This calendar has 30 months included so you can plan projects with ease. I like that you can start and stop on your own time. I also like that you can remove a calendar month and save or dispose of it."—beemom1

    Get it from Target for $8.99.

    2. Sock-pairing clips that'll ensure your sock's life partner never suddenly goes "missing" in the wash. Am I the only one who ever thinks about how lonely my socks must get whenever I accidentally break up a pair?

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    3. A box of pimple patches to absorb (or cover up) massive zits that seem to *exclusively* pop up whenever you have somewhere important to be.


    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. Does not cause drying or flaking." —Robin V.

    4. Double shower hooks for anyone who's never quite understood why they've been denied the luxury of removing their shower curtain and lining separately for so long.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy to no longer have to deal with the shower curtain or liner falling off of the hook. I love the fact that the double hook allows me to remove either the liner or shower curtain without the hassle of removing both. I don't know why I waited so long to order these." —Tanner L.

    5. No-crease hair ties to eliminate that weird bump that's left over whenever you take out a messy bun in the middle of the day.

    Promising review: "I really love these hair ties! They hold your hair efficiently without pulling or causing a headache. They also do not leave a crease in your hair, and they come out easily. So far, they have gone back to their original shape each time, even though I stretch them out when they are in my hair." —P. McKinney

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    6. A pack of clear bumper stickers (no, not the kind that go on cars) to make your home a much quieter place. These will keep your drawers and cabinets from slamming shut, even if your house is haunted by very petty and rambunctious ghosts.

    Photo collage of the transparent stickers applied on different surfaces

    Promising review: "So my parents’ bathroom cabinets make a lot of noise and are all missing bumpers in the corners of the doors and on the frames. I put these on the other day and life is sweeter without having to hear the cabinet doors slamming or closing each time they’re opened. With the bumpers being clear and not of a color, it’s also aesthetically pleasing." —KW

    7. A silicone case for your earbuds so you don't have to untangle them whenever you pull them out. This is perfect for anyone whose bag is basically a bottomless abyss of jumbled items.

    Promising review: "My headphones fit perfectly AND I have the ones with the mic. Very simple to use, and it fits in my purse and pocket!" —Patutii

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39+ (available two sizes and four colors).

    8. An overflow drain cover so you can have a full bath without having to refill the tub every five minutes. Taking a bath is supposed to be relaxing, not more work!

    The transparent cover blocking an overflow drain, with a hole at the top to release water a few inches higher

    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths, enjoy more relaxing warm coziness... all because of this little bit of silicone!" —anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    9. Self-tying shoelaces that could make anyone's life easier, but are especially helpful for people with disabilities or otherwise limited mobility.

    Promising review: "I have these sneakers that I rarely wear, and when I do, I get so annoyed because the laces come off all the time. But I do love the sneakers. These lock laces are so great — whoever invented them should be getting a humanitarian award for helping people." —Inday G.

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven color combos).

    10. A jewelry fastener for when your limbs suddenly decide to have a mind of their own. No more tackling your own arm to put on a bracelet.

    A pair of hands using the fastener, which is pen-sized stick with a metal clip on one end,  to attach a bracelet

    Promising review: "Wonderful helper! I don't know how I fastened a bracelet before ordering this. Each time I use it, it seems to be easier to use." —LuAnne B.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four colors).

    11. An eyeliner stamp that'll help you create matching wings in about half the time than it usually takes. Think of how much extra time you'll have to procrastinate before leaving the house every morning.


    One side is a winged stamp and the other side is a regular eyeliner pen.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings... but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    12. A essential oil blend to FINALLY give you some much-needed migraine relief. If only you could rub this thing *directly* on whatever is stressing you out and magically erase it from existence.

    a hand holding the small bottle of the headache-relief essential oil

    Promising review: "I got a lot of compliments when I put this in my oil diffuser at work. It smells great and keeps me calm in the mayhem of my office, especially since they always give me headaches." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    13. A clothes folder that's so easy to use you'll actually *look forward* to folding your clean clothes instead of just piling them on top of the "clothes chair" in your bedroom.

    A step-by-step image on how to use the perforated folder

    It can be adjusted to accommodate thicker pieces like sweaters.

    Promising review: "You would think folding is simple, but with this product, it's a perfect fold every time. It makes a pile of clothing so compact. Everything is uniformly folded. Makes putting clothes in drawers so much neater and more orderly. It makes my life easier." —S. Erhart

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    14. A pair of seat-gap fillers for chronically clumsy people who are tired dropping their phones between the crevices of their cars and getting their arms stuck down there like James Franco in 127 Hours. (Look it up).

    the seat gap filler inserted near the front passenger side seat of a car

    These Drop Stop seat gap fillers were originally featured on Shark Tank!

    Promising review: "I have bought about six of these for myself and friends/family. Cell phones, wallets, keys, change, and everything else doesn't fall through. I will not have another car without it. I was in a friend's car, and my phone dropped through the seat. He got a Drop Stop the next day." —kellen

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $22.99.

    15. A pack of elastic fasteners to prevent aggressive sleepers from ripping their fitted sheets off the mattress while tossing and turning.

    The elastic fastener features two metal clips on each side to grip the fitted sheet

    Promising review: "These ended the nightly fight over the fitted sheet. :) We have a double thick mattress that was too firm so we added a Costco 4-inch memory foam topper. Our sheets have deep pockets but they couldn't keep up. I didn't want to replace all the sheets so I bought these. They work great and grab hold tightly without coming off or putting a hole in the sheets." —Tanya

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    16. A pack of bra strap holders, because the only thing more annoying than adjusting your fitted sheets every night is having to pull up your bra strap for the 100th time in a row.

    The elastic holder attached to two bra staps in the back of a model

    These also make it so that you can wear bras with halter and racerback tops.

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $6.97 (available in five color combos).

    17. Shower curtain clips to eliminate chilly drafts, making your steamy showers that much more enjoyable. This product is a godsend for those of us who look for any excuse to stay in the shower even longer than we already do.

    a white shower clip attached to a wall holding a curtain in place

    Promising review: "We live in a small apartment that is a converted attic space. As such we have slanted ceilings throughout different spaces. One such space was in the shower where at the end there were six or so inches that the shower curtain did not reach. It was not a huge issue in the summer because it was hot, and I needed a little fresh air, however, as it started to cool down, I was losing precious steamy warm air out of this giant gap. I saw this product in a BuzzFeed article, and it was exactly what I was looking for! The adhesive is very strong but the curtain itself is easy to remove to open. I only used one and it was strong enough to keep the whole side of the wall blocked." —starvingcollegestudent

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A set of packing cubes so the next time you take three weeks to unpack your luggage after returning from a trip, you'll at least be able to see through these bags and remember what's inside.

    Promising review: "What a game-changer in packing. No more underwear and bras flying everywhere in your bag. I don't know how I ever packed without these. They feel sturdy and my suitcase feels more organized and sooo much more room left." —Ruthye

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 15 colors).

    19. A bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray to save you some embarrassment the next time you blow up the bathroom.

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H

    Get a four-ounce bottle from Amazon for $10 (available in seven sizes and 20 scents).

    20. 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.

    Promising review: "It seems silly, but having to lug in multiple bags in a shopping trip can be a huge hassle, especially if you live in an apartment complex and have to walk up flights of stairs. And of course, no one wants to make two trips (or god forbid, three or four) to get all of your stuff inside. The Mighty Handle is a great solution to this problem: you can hang all of your bags of groceries (or clothes, or shoes, or anything you can think of) on these handles and then only have to hold one (or two) handles to take everything with you. You can also use the Mighty Handle to hang your bags on and then twist the handles together so your stuff doesn't all spill out in the trunk. A simple solution to an annoying problem." —Elaina

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.95.

    21. A mug warmer so you don't have to reheat your coffee or tea after letting it sit unsipped for 20 minutes. It basically works like a very small hot plate.

    Promising review: "I'm a very slow tea/coffee drinker, so having this mini hot plate is amazing. I can have hot tea until the last sip! Life-changing. I use it every day. I'm using it as I write this review. I drink more tea because I know it won't get cold and sad. My roommates all want one now." —PDT

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. A bottle of Goo Gone to remove sticky residue left from price stickers and labels — which are ESPECIALLY annoying whenever I see them on kitchenware. Did you not know that I plan to eat off this, Mr. Manufacturer???

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of Goo Gone (#1 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "Since purchasing Goo Gone, I’ve cleaned off several candle tins, a Trader Joe's growler, and a kimchi jar previously marred by sticky labels — they can now be reused as pen holders and food containers! In fact, now I'm constantly looking around my apartment to see what I can Goo Gone (yes, I'm using it as a verb) and reuse. Definitely one of my best household purchases EVER." —Yi Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $7.01.

    23. A spill stopper that'll stop water from boiling over whenever you turn your back. Your unstained stove top will thank you.

    It's made of heavy silicone that's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Wow, wow, wow. I have no words to describe how great this product is. I'm a mom with a large family that cooks and bakes all the time. There is never a time that something doesn't spill over even when standing and watching the pot, but with this, life has just gotten easy. I think I'm throwing out all my pot covers after using this. I am mess-free." —Rackel

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three colors).

    24. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets for your water bottle(s), which are super simple to use and probably fun to watch if you like seeing fizzy things. The best part is there's no scrubbing required.

    a before and after collage of a water bottle being cleaned with a cleaning tablet

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    25. Peel-and-stick cable clips to organize the collection of unruly cords overtaking your workspace.

    Promising review: "These things work great! I have them spread out through my office to my home. At my desk, they keep the cables that I need to stay on the desk there and they are practically invisible. Definitely recommend these if you are looking to get your cables a little more organized!" —Pierce Gainey

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    26. Or a document clip if the clutter occupying your desk is more of a mountain of papers than a jungle of wires.

    It holds up to 30 sheets of paper and can swing back and forth.

    Promising review: "This lightweight arm holds at least 20 pages without falling out. I use this to prioritize things I need to get done and it keeps me from losing paper in piles. I have neck issues because I am constantly looking down and this keeps my head up and makes data entry easier because it's right next to the screen. It also pivots so I can adjust the angle." —Life Is Short

    Get it from Amazon for $10.74.

    27. A pair of truly squat-proof leggings that won't betray you in the middle of a workout by slipping down or becoming semi-transparent. The genius in buying leggings this stretchy is the fact that, theoretically, they should still fit comfortably even once those squats pay off and your glute and leg muscles start to grow.


    Promising review: "Not only are they squat-proof but they are comfy. If you’re looking for a great pair of workout leggings, definitely give these a chance. I’m a kinesiology student and activewear is a must when we are conducting our assessments and labs. I was in class one day talking about my leggings issue, and noticed one of my classmates wearing what I thought were Lululemon leggings. That’s when she told me that they were from Amazon by a brand named Tsla. I checked them out and for about a couple of weeks I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted to give them a try since I’m really picky about my leggings. But in the end I gave in and I’m so glad I did. Now I have four pairs of leggings under $60, instead of only two for $200 (Lululemon). I call that a GREAT DEAL!" —FamilyCox

    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 45 styles/colors).

    28. A reusable makeup-erasing cloth to remove your makeup with as few swipes as possible. All you need to do is add water. No makeup remover required!

    Just toss it in the washer when it gets dirty and it'll be as good as new!

    Promising review: "Amazing! This baby removed all my makeup including waterproof mascara. The cloth is super soft and I didn't need to wipe hard to remove everything. Wiped twice just to make sure all the makeup was gone. Best thing is all you need is water! Washed it by hand after use, and it was as good as new." —Lucy

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $20.

    29. A pet hair-removing roller that'll make your furniture (and everything else) look the way it did before your furry little friend entered your life.

    It has 3,000 5-star reviews! This roller doesn't use adhesive sheets — it has a special lint-trapping surface that can be reused over and over again!

    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-pound 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 the ChomChom, 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." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    30. A pair of noise-isolating headphones if you're still sharing your home office with chatty "coworkers" — aka children, spouses, or roommates.

    Promising review: "We have short walls at my job and I needed headphones to keep down the distractions while working. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I work easier at my desk playing soft music through my headphones without listening to co-workers talking. They are very soft on my ears and the sound is clear. Great battery life. I would definitely recommend these headphones." —Amazon Customer
