    1. An electric fabric shaver that'll remove rogue threads and lint from your pilling sweaters. You can use it on your furniture, too, to give your couch or rugs an instant refresh!

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    It comes with a power cord, storage bag, cleaning brush, and an extra blade.

    "I got this because my favourite sweaters were starting to look kind of grungy. I tried using lint rollers, but they weren't picking up enough of the pills on my knits, and it was so time consuming. This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.69 (originally $20.99).

    2. This portable deep cleaner that'll help you get rid of stubborn stains on your carpets and furniture. Reviewers say this baby is a must-have if you have pets (or messy roommates).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $99.99 (originally $139.99).

    3. A Brita pitcher that'll save you from spending money on bottles (and help the environment, too). A little red light will pop up on the top of the pitcher when it's time to change the filter, so you'll never have to guess.

    It comes with one filter, but I recommend just grabbing a pack while you're at it (so you're not scrambling when it's time to change it).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.97.

    4. A lumbar support cushion that'll give your back the TLC it probably needs. Reviewers say it's a total game changer when it comes to improving their posture and alleviating back pain, making it a heck of a lot more bearable to sit in front of a screen all day.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $35.95 (originally $39.99). Available in three colours.

    5. This 3-in-1 charging station that'll rid your nightstand of cluttered devices and tangled cords. Reviewers love how sleek it looks and that it can be separated in two for when they don't need to use the entire thing.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $30.99 (originally $36.99).

    6. A cordless vacuum designed specifically to suck up all of the stubborn pet (or human) hair you just can't seem to get rid of. It'll work wonders on your carpets, floors, and furniture, with a self-cleaning brush roll that'll prevent all of those loose strands from getting tangled up and clogging it.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Before using this cordless vacuum, my naive little mind thought I had managed to clean my carpet at least semi-effectively. lol, jk, I was very wrong. This cleaning tool is life changing, y'all. It's designed specifically for people who have pets and has a self-cleaning brush roll that'll snatch up human tresses and pet hair with ease. Like, even the super-embedded stuff." —Alice Prendergast

    8. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that'll clean and dry your dirty makeup brushes in under a minute. Your kabuki brush (and your skin) will thank you.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    "I'm know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. It uses a battery-operated spinner to swish the dirty brush in soapy water (I just used liquid soap, but you can also use special makeup brush shampoo), and then you just lift the brush out of the water and keep it spining for a few seconds — voilà! Within 30 seconds, the brush is totally clean and — more importantly — totally dry." —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $28.98. You'll also need some AAA batteries — get a 12-pack from Amazon Canada for $16.64.

    9. A set of Rubbermaid pantry storage containers that'll save your cupboards from a mess of open bags and clunky packaging. Their convenient lid shape allows you to stack them for optimal storage space, too.

    11. A weekly pill organizer that'll save you from busting out a billion pill containers every single day for every single dose. Each individual container is divided in two, so you can separate your a.m. doses from your p.m. ones.

    This year, I made it a goal of mine to hop on the vitamin train and actually take them consistently. This weekly organizer has been super helpful in making sure I do. I love that you can take each pod out, so if I'm out for the day, I can just stash the one into my pocket (instead of hauling around the whole container). I also love that each pod has two separate compartments, so I can keep my melatonin the heck away from my daytime supplements.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.99+. Available in two colours.

    12. A handy lid separator that'll save you from rummaging through cupboards and drawers to find the right lid. Reviewers say this thing gave their kitchen functionality an instant upgrade.

    13. A wall-hanging hamper that'll keep dirty clothes from piling up on your floor (and save you from an unsightly laundry basket that sticks out like a sore thumb). You can also hang it over your closet door to really tuck it away.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.99. Also available in packs of two and in a different design.

    14. A roll-up drying rack that'll unfurl right over your sink whenever you need it. It's heat resistant, so it can double as a trivet when you're working with hot pots and pans, too.

    15. A mop storage rack that'll keep your brooms and mops from knocking over every five seconds. It's equipped with hooks and clasps, so you can hang all the things!

    17. A pan rack that'll save you from stacking your skillets and scratching them. You can also use it to stash your pot lids and keep your cupboards neat.

    My cupboards used to be a hot mess prior to these racks. Now? No more heaving six skillets out to get to the pan at the bottom. I also love that I don't have to think about my non-sticks getting scratched, or my oily cast-iron pans getting everything else greasy. I ended up buying two, so I won't ever have to go back to the clanking heap of rogue lids ever again.

    You can use it upright or on its side, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.87.

    18. A laptop stand that’ll do wonders for your posture. If you spend most of your day slumped over your desk, do your neck the favour and get yourself an ergonomic setup already.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    Before I got this thing, I relied on a stack of books to elevate my laptop. It wasn’t pretty. I finally bit the bullet and made the upgrade, and let me tell you, I wish I had done it sooner. With this baby (and a separate mouse and keyboard), my sweet neck has never been happier. I normally use it with my MacBook Air, but I tried it with a clunky old MacBook Pro and it held it up perfectly, too. It comes with a hex key you can use to adjust the angle of the stand, with pads that’ll protect the edges of your laptop from scratches. Your aching back will thank you.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    19. A pack of natural bottle cleaning tablets that'll rejuvenate your coffee-stained thermos (and finally get that wine smell out of your favourite tumbler). Reviewers say one tablet will get any residue off the walls of your bottles, without leaving a gross chemical smell behind.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.06.

    23. A hair catcher that can also be used as a drain stop to plug your tub. Reviewers say it's super easy to clean and excellent for anyone who practically moults every time they shower.

    Reviewers say they're amazed by how well this baby works.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.09.

    27. A Philips Sonicare Expertclean electric toothbrush that'll maintain the health of your sweet chompers. It's got a ton of features that can help to prevent a receding gumline, and will even vibrate to let you know how long you should be brushing each section of your mouth.

    "TBH, where do I even start with this thing? It's lighter than other electric toothbrushes I've tried, and is equipped with so many features, I get that just-left-the-dentist feeling EVERY👏SINGLE👏TIME👏 I use it." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $210.09.

    28. And finally, an adjustable standing desk attachment that'll work just as well as a full-on standing desk (at a quarter of the cost). It lowers down far enough that you can still sit and work with it from time to time, too.
