    29 Products That Are Super Simple But Totally Genius

    Now I'm wondering why I didn't invent these things.

    1. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top.

    2. Heel blister patches that are meant to line your sneakers so you can walk and run without painful rubbing. If only these could just come standard issue with all sneakers.

    3. Slow cooker liners so you don't have to yank the heavy pot out of the cooker to clean it. Bags! Gotta love 'em.

    4. Mother Earth-approved bamboo towels said to replace up to six month's worth of paper towels. They're stronger (see: watermelon pic) and more durable than the other kind so you can reuse 'em.

    5. A cuff-style bracelet with a groove to keep your hair-tie in. Now you can always have one handy without it cutting of your circulation.

    6. Jumbo divider sticky notes so you can jot down some summary notes on each section in your notebook. Congratulations on becoming the most organized person in class!

    7. A pack of fridge drawer liners to help extend the life of your produce. Maybe you'll actually finish a bag of spinach for once.

    8. A cellphone holder that clips to your car's air vent and keeps your makeshift GPS at eye-level. It's so easy and helpful, you'll be kicking yourself for not getting it sooner.

    9. A pair of blue light-blocking glasses to help prevent eye strain from staring at a computer all day. Who knew the only thing you needed to avoid office headaches was some tinted glass? Assuming they're from eye strain and not frustrating coworkers, of course.

    10. Blind spot mirrors so switching lanes doesn't have to be a heart-stopping moment of terror. Why don't cars just have these already?

    11. An ice tray with a lid so you can walk at a normal pace from the sink to the freezer and just throw that thing in there, no risk of spills.

    12. A windshield cover to prevent snow and ice from accumulating on your car. Just peel it off and drive!

    13. Reusable silicone cupcake holders so you can stop dealing with those paper ones stealing half your cupcake bottom.

    14. A journal happy to store all your increasingly complicated passwords. At least 12 characters, including a symbol, number, capital letter, ancient rune, and the fleeting details of a half-remembered dream? COME ON!

    15. A handy device that keeps track of whether or not the cat has been fed. Those hungry meows aren't fooling anyone now, Socks!

    16. A dishwasher magnet so you can know at a glance whether the dishes are clean or dirty. Arguments = avoided. Accidentally eating off a dirty plate = never again.

    17. A jewelry organizer that properly displays all your trinkets in one convenient place. Bonus: You can keep it hidden in your closet.

    18. A lil' raincoat for your bag, because an umbrella can only do so much and your favorite purse is NOT waterproof.

    19. A pair of massage slippers that are meant to be worn for 15 minutes at a time to help with various foot pain problems.

    20. A liquid eyeliner with a stamp on the other end so you can just ~wing~ it when you want dramatic cat eyes without the drama of trying to draw them on yourself.

    21. A spoon that clips on to the side of your coffee ground jar, so your scoop is never out of reach.

    22. A pair of waterproof shoe covers to keep on hand in case of unexpected rain. We all know that umbrella is not going to protect your new suede heels from a torrential downpour.

    23. A pack of workout cards for when you're motivated to start exercising but not quite motivated enough to join a gym.

    24. A double-layered umbrella that closes inside-out so you don't get soaked when you try to close the darn thing. Such an easy fix, yet it took us so long to figure it out.

    25. A back zipper pull so you can get into dresses all by yourself, no complicated methods or partners needed.

    26. A dermaplaning tool that'll quickly clean up eyebrows and peach fuzz with just the flick of the wrist. So! Easy!

    27. A set of microfiber towels capable of wiping off every single speck of makeup. It's just a wet cloth — you don't even need to add makeup remover.

    28. An aerator that pops right onto the mouth of the wine bottle and infuses oxygen as you pour. It releases the aromas, meaning $5 wine might end up tasting like $15 wine.

    29. And a privacy window film that's easy to install and fills your home with lots of rainbows when the sun hits it just right. Now you can sing "somewheeeere over the rainbow" as you step over your dog.
