    29 Products To Help You With Habits You Want To Break

    We're leaving these less than stellar habits in 2020.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Reusable stainless-steel straws because a VSCO girl trend that should never go out of style is ~saving the turtles.~ Not only does this help curb plastic waste, but you'll also save $$$ by never having to purchase disposable ones. Less waste + more money in your pocket = a happier you.

    2. Nail biting deterrent polish to finally keep your fingers out of your mouth for good. The two-in-one solution and top coat is formulated with bitter flavors that taste awful, thus promoting nail growth. Now prepare for a hand that's worthy of a red carpet mani cam.

    3. Flexible curling rods so you never have to sacrifice healthy hair for style. Hot tools can cause hair breakage and loss, but it's hard to put the flat and curling iron down for good — these will give you voluminous, bouncy curls sans heat so you can kick split ends to the curb.

    4. Reusable makeup remover cloths that remove dirt, dry your skin, and last for years, that way you can help reduce waste in your home and save money in the long run. They even come with a box for storage and a drawstring laundry bag for machine washing so they don't get damaged or lost (unlike your socks).

    5. Atomic Habits by James Clear strives to help you make positive new habits that stick. The author uses a combination of psychology and science that encourage you to make some small (but massively helpful!) lifestyle changes.

    6. A sectioned hamper guaranteed to make laundry day accident proof and feeling like less of a chore. That means no more sorting mix-ups, aka accidentally bleaching your favorite jeans or splotches of bright pink ending up on your favorite white tee.

    7. A pill organizer so that you never miss a dose or accidentally double dose. This colorful case has 14 slots so you can separate your morning vitamins and medications from the ones you take at night.

    8. A doorknob organizer for your phone, keys, mask, and any other important thing you're bound to forget until you're miles away from home. This door handle will ensure that never happens again thanks to three deep pockets and an all caps "DO NOT FORGET!" printed on the top.

    11. A mini trash bin for your car because no matter how often you tidy up the interior, it's bound to be messy by the end of the day thanks to gum wrappers, fast food, and drink cups. Now, you can keep your vehicle permanently clean (well, at least on the inside).

    12. A gratitude journal — If you have a habit of dwelling on the negative, try the daily practice of writing down all the positive things you've overlooked throughout the day.

    13. A rapid egg cooker that makes the perfect egg-based breakfast quicker (and dare I say better) than your fav fast food chain. That means no more missing the most important meal of the day, plus you can finally cross "cook at home more" off your to do list.

    14. A Waterpik flosser so you'll have no excuse when it comes to flossing. Regular string floss can make the process feel tedious and unpleasant, but this device is seamless: Simply hold the device up to your teeth and let the water do all the work.

    15. A reusable shopping bag because those store bag fees are adding up and you never remember to pack the paper ones. This eco-friendly nylon tote can be folded into the included folding pouch, is water-resistant, and can be thrown into the washer when it's starting to look a little dirty.

    16. A time-marked water bottle so you can keep that promise of drinking more water. This beautifully designed bottle has a motivational phrase for each gulp from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., which means that adding this to cart ensures you'll be hydrated all day long.

    17. A hydrocolloid acne pimple patch so you can stop picking at your face! These patches gently suck the gunk out of your blemishes and stop you from damaging your skin, which means you can wave bye bye to acne scars (and further inflammation) caused by constantly touching your face.

    18. An electric makeup brush cleaner because you're supposed to clean them at least once per week, but lets be real, it's been a while. This spinner makes sanitizing your tools quick and fun enough to do daily.

    19. Plastic nail clips for a safe and easy way to soak off your polish. When the paint starts to chip or grow out, you might be tempted to file, chew, or peel off but that can cause major damage to the nail bed. These clips stay put and take off acrylics and color in under 10 minutes.

The sleek design is almost invisible under clothes and relieves back, shoulder, and neck pain associated with slouching! You can wear it for a couple of minutes or hours while working for a noticeably more enjoyable sitting experience.

    23. Aquaphor body spray lotion because moisturizing feels so tedious and time-consuming, but *not* applying moisturizer after you shower (especially during winter) has itchy consequences for your skin. It's perfect if you're in a rush, gets into those hard-to-reach places like your back, and makes the process kind of fun.
