    Just 41 Home Products You've Put Off Buying But Really Should Get

    This is your *friendly* reminder.

    1. A modern bookshelf for neatly storing all of those novels YOU WILL DEFINITELY READ AT SOME POINT! I know you've grown accustomed to your books being arranged in little stacks on the floor, but, alas, the time has come for them to have a home of their own, and one that's *gorgeous* to boot.

    2. Shelf dividers that'll put an end to the disorderly state of your linen closet once and for all. Separate the towels from the washcloths and the sheets from the quilts, and feel a sense of dignity when you open the door and know *exactly* where the item you're looking for is.

    3. An inexpensive but lovely tassled area rug to replace that tattered "temporary" one you've had for...five years. It seriously looks like it could've come from a high-end boutique, and not only will it bring a whole room together, it also comes in a whopping 24 sizes and four shapes, meaning it'll work anywhere you're in need of a soft and stylish floor covering.

    4. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner for anyone who's been meaning to clean out their grimy go-to appliance, but...hasn't gotten around to it. With this, it's easy — just fill it with vinegar and water, heat in the microwave for five to seven minutes, then marvel at how easily the tomato soup that exploded all over your microwave last month wipes right off.

    5. A beautiful oak and brass jewelry holder that'll actually make you excited to put your jewelry away neatly, as opposed to it existing as one big tangled mass on your dresser. Check this one off your to-do list and give yourself a pat on the back for investing in a storage piece that's both functional and aesthetically-pleasing.

    6. A *gorgeous* accent table to hide all of that, just, stuff you have lying around that probably shouldn't be thrown out, but definitely shouldn't be on display. Furniture that's aesthetically-pleasing and reduces clutter? We love to see it.

    7. Some slip-resistant velvet hangers for a less cluttered closet that might actually bring you joy to look at?! Gone are the days of opening your closet only to see your most delicate dresses and blouses collecting dust on the floor, and since these hangers have an ultra-thin design, you'll save precious storage space, too.

    8. And, a hanger stacker, because literally no one should ever have to deal with (or look at) a messy pile of tangled hangers EVER. Just seeing that first photo is making me cringe for you.

    9. A minimalist desk organizer for anyone whose WFH situation is feeling a little...chaotic 😫 Relax, take a deep breath, and feel a renewed sense of clarity when you finally transfer that pen/notepad desk clutter to this (honestly v pretty!) accessory.

    10. A hanging branch clothing rack so you can (at last!) justify buying more clothes, despite the fact that you currently have no room for them. Think of this as a wildly chic extension of your closet, and hang the most gorgeous pieces of the bunch on this baby for all to admire.

    11. A lovely minimalist bed frame and headboard, because your days of sleeping on a mattress on the floor should be far behind you. This one's made of sturdy solid wood and steel, and doesn't even require a box spring!

    12. Annnd, a gorgeous linen duvet set to replace that threadbare quilt you've been using since high school. Maybe now you'll even look forward to making your bed every morning.

    13. A sophisticated mini bar cart as a solution for keeping your beautiful bottles and drink ware organized and on display, rather than collecting dust in some random cabinet like they are right now.

    14. An asymmetrical, two-tier TV stand, because while using two milk crates to prop up your TV has proven mildly effective, your living room's aesthetic deserves so much more. It has way more visual appeal than a standard clunky console, and essentially doubles as a bookcase/decor display.

    15. A silicone sink strainer for anyone who *hates* when it takes a whole 10 minutes for the sink to drain, makes a note to do something about it, then forgets all about it once the water's gone down. This will proactively keep your drain free of chunky, pipe-clogging food residue (and anything else that may find its way into your sink).

    16. And, some garbage disposal cleaner to get rid of lingering smells — you know, the ones that always make you think, "Wow, I should probably be cleaning my garbage disposal," but then never do.

    17. A dryer vent cleaner because, as you've probably heard, simply cleaning out your lint catcher might not be enough 😬 With this, you won't have to worry about extra lint buildup becoming a potential fire hazard, and you'll be glad/horrified you purchased it once you see how much filth it sucks up.

    18. Some under-bed storage containers that'll make use of the space that would otherwise be used for hiding monsters (just kidding). In all seriousness, you've likely been meaning to find a storage solution for those seasonal clothes and shoes, and keeping them under the bed is one of the easiest ways to save space elsewhere.

    19. An *actual* solid wood dining table for a replacement for that flimsy card table you've been eating your meals on while keeping your fingers crossed that it doesn't collapse at any second. Reviewers say it's a breeze to assemble!

    20. A multiuse wall shelf with a mail compartment and hangers for keys and coats, because slinging your jacket over a chair and flinging your mail onto a random surface in your home? No longer acceptable!

    21. A sock and underwear organizer to, quite literally, keep your panties from getting in a twist. You'll feel so satisfied every time you pull out your drawer and see your bras arranged in a neat little row, and wonder why you didn't purchase this sooner.

    22. Dishwasher-cleaning tablets, because after seeing your residue-coated dishwasher, you've started wondering how clean your dishes could really be if your dishwasher itself is a mess? Just pop them into the tray where you'd normally put detergent (or on the bottom of your dishwasher if you're washing dishes at the same time), and run as usual!

    23. A three-tiered shoe rack to keep your ever-growing footwear collection nice and contained for once. Its compact size is perfect for smaller spaces, so you can keep your shoebox apartment from turning into, you know, a literal shoebox.

    24. A window blind duster brush, because while you acknowledge your blinds do, in fact, require cleaning on the reg, you've yet to find a way of doing it that doesn't make you miserable. This handy device seriously cuts down on the amount of time it takes to do what is likely one of your least favorite tasks, so you're welcome!

    25. An oh-so-helpful long-necked plant water bottle for those hanging succulents you've thought about watering...if only you were able to reach them.

    26. A set-it-and-forget-it multipurpose outdoor cleaner, because your driveway, fence, and patio deserve some attention, too! Those green moss and mildew stains you thought you were stuck with? Nope, no match for this stuff. Spray some on, and then...literally just admire your beautiful "work."

    27. A pair of Shark Tank–endorsed drain protectors for any respectable adult who's ever had to witness a plumber pull a humiliating amount of hair out of their clogged drain and has vowed to never let that happen again. Just place it in your drain, and replace every few months once it's nice and hairy.

    28. Some stove counter gap covers because as much as you've been trying to convince yourself that crumbs you can't see don't really count...they kind of do. Simply stick them between those little cracks, and clean with a dishcloth or in the dishwasher whenever they start to get dirty.

    29. An unassuming silicone utensil rest to keep you from groaning every time those saucy spoons and grease-slicked spatulas make a mess of your counter. It can hold up to four items at a time!

    30. A popular Levoit air purifier, because it's time to actually do something about the fact that you sneeze inside your own home 24/7/365. Plus, it's really a twofer, since reviewers also say it's effective at eliminating bad odors (not that your home has any 😉).

    31. Some good old Magic Erasers so you can finally stop cringing every time you look at your fingerprint-covered walls. Just wet 'em, squeeze 'em, and go to town!

    32. A handy little knife sharpener, because your dull blades just aren't "cutting" it anymore and you're at your wits end when it comes to battling tomatoes and loaves of bread. This is one of those gadgets that's easy to forget about buying, but once you have one, you'll feel so grateful for having *actually* sharp knives at your disposal (I would know, I recently got one of these myself!).

    33. A complete 40-piece flatware set for a serious upgrade from the plastic cutlery that's currently in your drawer (that stuff has got to go!). Plus, it'll ensure you're never short a fork when you have your family over for dinner.

    34. A red wine stain remover you always tell yourself to buy after that one friend gets a little tipsy on your white couch, but promptly forget about once the upholstery cleaning company has done their job. This will ease any apprehensions you might have about hosting people at your place once you see how miraculous it is, and costs way less than hiring the pros to get stains out. Now if only they made one for teeth...

    35. A 100 percent natural oven scrub, because it's many years of avoiding this dreaded task? Watch as it lifts away gunk you thought would be there for good, and vow to never go that long without cleaning your oven again.
