    1. An expanding file folder that comes in a soothing pastel color, so you can breathe easy now that all your important papers are in one place.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've always been the type of person to have a different folder for each subject in school, and to buy new folders every semester because they accumulate wear and tear by the end of the term. But it became too annoying to have to switch out notebooks and folders every day depending on what classes I had. It also increased the likelihood that I'd forget a folder for a particular class, so I gave this a try. After four months of continuous use, it's held up really well! It holds everything that I need and it is always by my side. It actually still looks somewhat new. I got compliments on it because it's cute and a great organizational tool." —KaleSensei

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven colors).

    2. A super-popular foot massager with deep-kneading rotating nodes — all your worries will just slip away when you turn it on.

    It has over 1,000 five-star reviews! This thing is WORTH IT!

    Promising review: "OMG I just got this and WOW it is wonderful. The heat is like putting on warm socks and the massage is as hard or soft as you select. And the air compression is GREAT!" —BL Meyer

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99, or get a foot roller for $18.95.

    3. An under-desk hammock so you can put your feet up and take a breather when work gets out of hand.

    4. A heat-resistant hair tool holder so you can stop worrying about your straightener while it cools down. No more worrying about roommates accidentally burning themselves after you left it on the counter! No more worrying about putting a hot iron in your suitcase when you're traveling! No more worrying! About this, anyway.

    Promising review: "Up until now, I hadn't found a receptacle that I could put a hot tool into and was forced to leave them on the counter, where I often forgot to unplug them or even turn them off. This handy holder is a life saver and has made sure I have remembered to be adult with my styling tools and put them out of the way of becoming a fire hazard! If you're like me and get makeup on your hands while getting ready, the black Polder material can get smudgy with cosmetic fingerprints, but doesn't everything in the bathroom suffer the same fate? Save yourselves the stress of thinking you'll burn down your bathroom and buy this product!" —KCyalater

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four colors).

    5. A watermelon jelly sheet mask sure to make you a lot calmer (and hungrier!!!).,

    This fruity-scented mask is good for most skin types and claims to help with dryness and uneven skin tones.

    Get it from Sephora for $8, or if that's a little pricey for you, get a pack of 16 regular sheet masks from Amazon for only $10.98.

    6. A pair of produce containers that keep your fruits and veggies fresh for an impossibly long time so you don't have to stress about going out to dinner instead of using the food in the fridge. It will still be fresh the next day! And the next, and the next, and the next...

    BuzzFeed's Natalie Brown swears by these! See the full review.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get two from Amazon for $14.99 (also available in different sets).

    7. A pair of leggings with a pocket for your phone so you can stop worrying about where to put it while you're working out on the machines at the gym., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These leggings had good reviews, met all my requirements, and were cheap enough for the perfect impulse buy. And I am so glad I bought them! They're pleasantly thick and stretchy with the perfect rise, aaand they have mesh panels down the legs that are cute *and* help with the sweat factor. And the pockets are EVERYTHING. Whether I'm flinging myself down the street (that's what it looks like when I'm running), doing high knees, trying one burpee and then lying down, or attempting convoluted yoga poses, my phone NEVER leaves that little pocket! Who needs endorphins when you feel the joy of finding the perfect leggings for under $20?" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    8. A spinning ring you can fidget with whenever you need to keep your hands busy.

    Promising review: "Beautiful colors and a great spinner right out of the bag (didn't have to work with it to get it to spin like I have to do with some). It spins quickly and smoothly with a flick of the thumb. Not too loud." —Jewle

    Promising review: "I have struggled with chronic fatigue for months. After recently being diagnosed with some health issues that cause me to have restless sleep, I felt so hopeless. I emailed this company and chatted with them about shipping times and their product. They were prompt and helpful. The blanket came much faster than expected and is excellent quality. I highly suggest it for anyone who likes sleeping under heavy blankets, has anxiety or sensory issues, PTSD, or restless leg syndrome. It’s awesome! It has little ties to put a cover on, too! Now if only I could get my dog to stop stealing it. Lol!" —Kelly

    17. A white noise machine ideal for restless sleepers who would rather hear than sound of rain than their own racing thoughts.

    Promising review: "I have tried various sound machines in the past and one of the biggest problems I always have is as I lay there in my bed in the dark, I can hear the various audio clips looping. We all know that sound machines play a loop of the audio (the storage space required would be ridiculous if they didn't,) but when you can tell when it starts over again -- it is quite distracting for me. My mind starts to anticipate the loop and I can't fall asleep. Quite counter-productive to the point of a sleep machine! I have been using this sound machine for over a week now and tried the various sound effects. So far, my brain has not found the loop point in any of the audio samples! I actually drift off to sleep quite fast so there isn't a lot of time for my mind to analyze the clips. This is quite the relief!" —atrac

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    18. A Roku streaming stick so you can easily throw a kitten video on Youtube before stress eats you alive.

    Promising review: "Great little device! I like to do my nails just before I go to bed so that I can lay my hands on top of the sheets and let them dry as I go to sleep. The problem is, I would try to hold the bottle between my raised knees, and it would slip and slide around. With Tweexy, I can do my nails anywhere, without having to squeeze the bottle between my knees, or needing to have a flat surface to keep it on." —Suzy

It has three modes (dry mop, damp mop, and wet mop). I use it in wet-mop mode after Roomba vaccums or I sweep/Swiffer the floors, and Braava still manages to pick up some cat fur that we missed because it's small and thorough. It does an especially nice job in bathrooms because it can actually clean behind the toilet!" —HissyFitz
