    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

    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.

The stretchy elastic straps are also adjustable to create the perfect amount of tension. And when it's time to wash your sheets, you can just unclip them." —Kaysey Davis

    20. A teeny-tiny bike storage rack that'll tuck your summertime ride away, as well as free up some floor space. With one clip per bike, installation is wildly minimal — just mount it onto a wall and pop the front wheel in.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    So, here's my embarrassingly packed (and messy) storage closet to showcase just how handy this neat little gizmo is. Without it, it'd be a nightmare to find a safe spot for my bike. With it?

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    "This is an absolute must-have for anyone who wears glasses, because we've all been struggling with fogged-up lenses whenever we wear face masks. You just breathe on both sides of the lens and use the cloth on it for about ten seconds — your glasses will be fog-free for about 24 hours. Now I can actually see when I go outside in my mask!" —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.95. Available in multiple size packs.
