    Just 31 Quick And Efficient Things That Will Save You Loads Of Time

    It's time to retire the phrase "so much to do, so little time."

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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. A wireless tracker so you're never hours late because you misplaced a super important item again. The set comes with a transmitter that has a built-in flashlight and four color-coded receivers — just apply the receivers to any item like your phone, glasses, or keys. If you misplace it, press the color on the transmitter that you attached to the missing item, then follow the beep.

    This comes with one transmitter and four receivers. Once you press the remote, a receiver sound beeps and the item lights up. The remote's range reaches up to 30 METERS, so if you're one to throw your keys out the window, you're in luck.

    Promising review: "Do you have kids? We have three of them. By the time I get home from a long day at work, sometimes I just need a little Netflix or Amazon Prime. Before I got these, there was this hellish period of 'you've got to be kidding me? What do you mean you don't remember where you put it?!?!'. Sure, we had a designated basket where the remotes should go, but they'd be under the couch, under a blanket, in the next room, etc. Now, all I do is click a button on the base remote and the fob chimes away and we have fun finding the cussed little devices. Sure, they still end up in every conceivable unusual spot, but now we can find them." —UkuleleJoe

    2. A dough press to effortlessly fold and press your pies, dumplings, ravioli, calzones, and empanadas to crimped perfection. Toss your dough on to the press, add your filling, and flip. Then you can fry, bake, or freeze for later.

    Each set comes with one 4-, 5-, and 6-inch dough press (a total of three).

    Promising review: "This dough press has been a life saver! Made over 65 empanadas in a fraction of the time it normally takes me. I would usually use a fork to seal the empanadas. By the time I would be done making over 50 empanadas, my fingers would be in so much pain. My fingers would look like I was holding up gang signs. Gone are the days of having to use a fork!" —Kdub

    4. A folding board because it's time you stopped shoving your clothes straight out of the dryer and back into your laundry bag. Let's face it, you're not going to iron it and yes, everyone can see your super wrinkled top on Zoom. This board effortlessly folds any item of clothing in seconds flat so you'll always look sharp.,

    Promising review: "Dudes, I can't tell you how much I don't like folding clothes. I also can't express to you how much I don't want to write a review on Amazon, but here's the thing. I whip out this thing like it's cash money and flip it around like a $2 bill you've never seen before. I get my laundry done in six minutes max. Flat. I'm throwing everything in there, towels. Shirts. Pants. My grandmother's bathrobe. This is the best purchase I've had from Amazon. God bless my clothes looking like the Gap." —Mac

    5. Five-blade stainless-steel herb scissors to cut your recipe prep time in half. These cutters help you do the work of three by trimming thyme, basil, parsley, and so much more into tiny shreds.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for every kitchen. I like to put fresh herbs into most of my food. What an ingenious gadget to make it easier. Just clip and there you have it. I use a lot of green onions for various dishes. This was my prime purpose for ordering this item. It does not disappoint. It even handled several stalks at a time. I found that I could cut up the green stalks with ease. I especially like the dual purpose of the guard used to put over the blades when storing. The top of this guard also helps to clear the blades after cutting the herbs or whatever. Brilliant design!" —AZN8TV

    Promising Review: "If you're looking for a cute, easy-to-use kitchen staple that will not only make weeknight dinners easier but also give you a hefty dose of the warm-n-fuzzies just by sitting on your kitchen counter, look no further. My husband and I are huge Disney/Pixar fans, so we ended up purchasing this purely for looks alone. But as it turns out, its actually a very nice slow cooker. We actually cooked our Thanksgiving turkey (breast only) in this crock pot, and it came out so well that we plan to do the same thing again this year! We use this slow cooker at least once a week." —Kate

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds! I have had no problems with water spitting out or being burnt at all. I love this machine so much I am bringing it with me on my international trips! So I have to say don’t think twice, this is a must-buy!" —Emily

    Reviewer photo of shredder claws in use on chicken breast next to bowl of shredded chicken

    Promising Review: "These work SO much better than forks. Because they have 6 tines per hand, that's like 33% more tines than a fork. (12 versus 8). Also, they're wider and sharp. WAY sharper than a fork, and widen Away from the tip, so it makes shredding very easy. It cut shredding time in half, at least, and it was much more thorough. I definitely recommend and am glad I bought these!" —Funkpod

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    10. The Denman Hair Brush – it cuts styling time in half because it detangles and shapes curls at the same time! The evenly spaced bristles ensure you always have a head of perfectly sculpted spirals.,

    Promising review: "I love this brush! I ordered because I saw a Youtube video of a girl with curly hair using it, and her curls came out amazing! I always do wash-and-gos, and I usually would only brush/comb my hair in the shower style it once I was out, but sometimes if I waited a little longer to style it, my hair would get dry and frizzy. It would be almost impossible to get my curls defined without getting back in the shower. With this brush, now all I have to do it spray my hair with water, put product in it, and comb it through with this brush, and my curls are poppin'! My image shows before and after use of the brush about 30 minutes after getting out of the shower. The brush is also very sturdy and you can take rows out if you want a looser curl!" —Kirstie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three styles and eight colors).

    11. An automatic pan stirrer with a timer so you can prep the rest of your meal or binge a show uninterrupted. Keep your arms well rested and at your sides while this utensil does all the work.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "My husband LOVES Alfredo, but I HATE the constant stirring of the sauce, so I rarely make it! For Christmas, my husband invested in his future and bought me this self stirrer. I was incredibly sure that this gadget would never be able to manage the thick sauce and that I would end up whisking the night away. I will come before you now and claim that this was AMAZING!! I literally walked away and prepped other ingredients and walked back to the stove where my PERFECTLY COMBINED sauce sat, ready to serve to my beloved. Truly a product worth its money!" —Kate

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $25.

    12. Chi Spin N Curl – it takes a page out of the Jetsons' book by allowing you to curl your hair in an instant without doing any work. Drop a section of your hair into the rotating barrel and it'll be curled to perfection in just a few seconds.


    Promising review: "I am in love with this gadget! I’ve always used curling irons, but this is so much better. For me, I don’t have to be as mindful of how I’m wrapping my hair in the curling iron to avoid that antiquated style of overly curled hair. I love that the heated part is completely inside the barrel, so no worries about burning my fingers. It’s very quick to heat up — under a minute. You can easily adjust the settings for heat or how long you want the hair in the barrel before it beeps. Even if the unit hasn’t beeped and you want to release your hair sooner, you just pull it out. It won’t let your hair get stuck inside. If you try to put too much inside or the hair is too tangled to start, the iron beeps and stops pulling the hair inside. I have pretty thick hair and still have been able to pull in reasonable sections of hair. I’m able to curl my entire head of thick hair in about 10 minutes." —Blondie

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in six colors).

    13. The MingsBings Variety Pack so you can have a nutritious and delicious plant-based meal in minutes. Your taste buds will never get tired of this sampler pack that comes with four vegan veggie patties, four buffalo cauliflower patties, and four vegan sausage-and-pepper patties.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    MingsBings are created by Ming Tsai, a chef, entreprenueur, author, James Beard award winner, Emmy winner, and host of Simply Ming on PBS. 

    Promising review: "In 2017, Ming's wife, Polly, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and decided to go vegan in hopes of lowering inflammation. Ming realized quick vegan meal options were severely lacking, so he sought to create his own. He started with a veggie patty and now has three varieties of MingsBings! It's also worth knowing that profits are shared with Family Reach and Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, packaging is designed with minimal environmental impact, and the vegan patty creation process uses less water, land, and production than meat.

    They're vegan and gluten- and nut-free. Oh, and they are FREAKING DELICIOUS. I've tried most all flavors at this point and they're so easy to heat up, which is great news if you have an air fryer! The one shown her is a Veggie-Filled Bing, which I ate late-night after a few min in the air fryer." —BuzzFeed Writer, Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from MingsBings for $64.99.

    14. A Magic 8-Ball, which is surprisingly super useful for adults — especially if, like moi, you're indecisive and overwhelmed. Just ask a yes or no question, shake this tiny tool, and the answer to most of your problems will be revealed in seconds.


    Promising review: "I'm having a blast with this miniature Magic 8-Ball. It sits on the table by my recliner for easy access. With it, I'm now free of the majority of decision-making in my life, which relieves me of any stress, anxiety, or uncertainty that might come over me at any moment. I no longer have to take any responsibility for my actions; I can just blame it on the 8-Ball. It fits easily into almost any-sized pocket, so, if I'm going out, I can take it along and let it play the same role in my life. This ability to take my new decision-maker with me in smaller form is great! It's a nice return to my childhood, inexpensive, and a much-needed reprieve from the stress of our contemporary society. Everyone should have one and have some light-hearted fun!" —ALW

    15. A rapid egg cooker that makes egg-based breakfast quicker (and dare I say better) than your fav fast food chain. Can you imagine consistently perfect hard-boiled, poached, or scrambled eggs anytime you'd like? Well, now it can be your reality. Just add eggs and water (depending on the type of eggs you're making) and your meal will be done in minutes.

    The egg cooker

    One little machine that can whip up hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelets? Sounds magical! And let me tell you — it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP.

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. If you're particular about egg yolks like me and like them soft but not runny or raw, I've attached an image of a perfectly soft-boiled egg that was cooked as directed (I timed it, this one was 11 minutes. You don't have to time it at all as the buzzer will go off, just for reference). Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?" —rebecca

    16. A RevAir Hair Dryer to work its magic from root to tip on all hair types (1a–4c). This genius straightener gives a salon worthy blowout with just one tool: drop your hair section by section into the device, hold for up to 60 seconds, and await the jaw-dropping results (you won't feel any heat or tension at all!).

    RevAir, Chantel Turner / BuzzFeed

    I own this amazing device and it is the best straightening product I've ever tried. It has always been impossible for me to straighten my curly roots with a traditional blow dryer, so I always had to flat iron my hair afterwards. I have naturally curly hair so all that heat has resulted in a lot of damage. With this product, I don't have to do that anymore. My hair is straight from my roots to my ends after using this. I also love that I can't feel the heat on my scalp at all! I have thick 3c hair and doing my entire head takes about 10–15 minutes. The device can take a little getting used to but MyRevAir and YouTube have tons of helpful tutorial featuring people with all different hair textures and types successfully using the dryer. (Psst...You can also use this to instantly dry dreads, braid-outs, twist-outs, or stretch your natural hair in minutes!).

    Promising review: "I am amazed at the results of my hair after using my RevAir. I have always had the worst shrinkage and couldn't find a way to stretch out my hair when I did a twist. This is revolutionary, not only did it stretch my hair but my twist out was popping!" —Marquet S.

    Get it from RevAir for $349 (originally $399).

    17. A drawer organizer which will make the impossible possible — finding a pair of socks without ransacking your dresser drawers. Oh, the joys of being able to pull out a matching pair of undergarments and basics in under 10 seconds.

    Reviewer draw with draw organizer inside

    It comes with four bins: a six-cell (for scarves/ties), an eight-cell (for underwear, etc.) a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks).

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $15.87 (available in six colors).

    18. A food chopper that can make sauces, dips, salads, and dice basically any other food item you can think of in literally seconds! Just drop the ingredients of your choice inside, close the lid, and pull the string, then enjoy your delicious no-effort meal or snack.

    Promising review: "I’m pleasantly surprised that it is so easy to clean and does a great job quickly with minimal effort!! I’ve only used it for a day now, so can’t comment on sturdiness or durability, but it looks like it should last long. Just to test it’s limits, i added one single chopped green chili. I had expected that it won’t be able to chop or do anything in such small quantities, but It did great at finely mincing the chili! I tried overloading it with large chunks of onions and it did just as great; it didn’t require any extra strength for the ‘pulls.‘ I highly recommend this. I think it is a genius invention and a great product design!" —GDD

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    19. Wet & Forget shower cleaner because are you one of those folks who absolutely hates cleaning but likes things to be spotless? Well, this stuff is perfect because it requires absolutely no scrubbing. Just apply the odorless solution to your tub daily and rinse it off with water to make your bathroom look like one at the Ritz — no sponge required.

    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." —Stephanie Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    20. A 15-pack of three compartment meal prep containers that will save you time and money. These sturdy boxes will inspire you to prepare your meals for the week and allow you to separate your veggies, grains, and protein in one container. Stick them in the fridge, pop in the microwave, and toss them in the dishwasher afterwards.,

    These are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe!

    Promising review: "These containers have been a lifesaver for me. I recently am doing the keto diet and prep is a huge part of success, not only for me but my husband as well for packed lunches for work. The size is perfect to fit in lunch boxes and store in an icebox. I cook and freeze as well and they hold up great. All around this was a great buy! Storage containers are expensive, and most don't hold up in the microwave very long and get stains; not the case with these at all." —Paula R.

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $19.50 (also available in three bulk sizes).

    21. An undated weekly to-do list with a magnetic bottom side, which means you'll never forget your important tasks. Every time you open your fridge you'll be reminded of the things that may have slipped your mind.

    Model writing on weekly to do bad hanging on refrigerator

    This pad has 60 tear off undated sheets that will allow you to plan out your entire year.

    Promising review: "This weekly planner pad is perfect! It's very cute with its floral design and the color-coded days are a nice touch. I like the bubble-style bullets, which you can check off or fill in as you complete the tasks. I especially appreciate that Saturday and Sunday get their own individual boxes, rather than having both days crammed into one small box, like many other weekly notepads do. The weekend is when you have the most chores and errands! It totally makes sense to allocate individual boxes for each day! I especially like the "bonus" Next Week box, since I can jot things to do in the following week (things I would otherwise, forget, guaranteed). The cardboard backing is very sturdy and the sheets are nice and thick. I can actually use an eraser on the paper without the paper crinkling or ripping. I also like that there are enough sheets to last a whole year of weekly planning. I'm definitely buying another one to use for next year!" —sooshi

    22. A two-pack of Goo Gone adhesive spray for when your toddler decides to play interior decorator and you're stuck removing leftover sticker residue. This miracle product will make that impossible task incredibly easy and quick.

    Promising review: "I needed to remove the tank emblems from my Harley. Getting the metal part off is easy but it left behind nearly one-fourth of what was once goo but was now a rock hard layer of crud. I tried a few different solvents with no results. Goo Gone practically melted it away and i was able to remove it with very little effort. It took several applications and scrapings with a good scraper a little at a time but it's gone now and you can't tell it was ever there." —D. Kells

    Get two 12-ounce bottles from Amazon for $16.98.

    23. An apple/pear slicer to take the hassle out of apple pie or peach cobbler prepping, because it chops fruit into eight even slices. Simply place the device on top of a ripe Granny Smith, and use the safety handles to push down. The blades even cut out the core so you can immediately get to baking.

    Reviewer's apple slicer in use on peach

    The brand also offers a banana and egg cutter that have over 2,500+ positive reviews as well! All three slicers are dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "I love the easy grip handles and how easily the sharp metal cuts through the apple, leaving the core cleanly separated. If you buy an apple corer/slicer, be sure to get one that has the folding bottom (which also serves as a safety cover) to help complete the cut all the way through, like this one has. Your apple slicing should be frustration free. Not only do you get eight perfect, equally sized slices, but you get it done in less than 10 seconds. I can't think of many $10 products that can deliver this much happiness." —R Bedford

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    24. A drill brush attachment which will remove deep stains from hard surfaces fast without requiring much effort. Use this scrubber on your stove, bathtub, and sink to easily take off rust, grime, and dirt.

    Make sure to use them only on surfaces you're pretty sure they won't scratch! And you can alway test in a discreet area first to check.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    25. An exercise workstation bike for anyone who's sitting at their desk all day and wants to get active. You'll be able to multi-task by working out and working during your eight-hour shift, so your early mornings and evenings will be completely free.

    Reviewer sitting on bike desk

    Promising review: "As a health provider I was beginning to really struggle with work/life balance. I am a new provider and I only had time to exercise in the morning, but then that time was taken up by catching up with my medical charts. One night while feeling especially disheartened I thought about exercise desks, but thought they would be cost prohibitive. I was ecstatic when I found FlexiDesk. The product was very reasonably priced. It is easy to move and isn’t overly bulky. The desk is easily adjustable for a perfect fit. Now I can work and exercise at the same time. This is the best self purchase I have made for myself. Wonderful product. So pleased." —Jocelyn G.

    27. 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.

    Model using Waterpik in between teeth

    Promising review: "So, this Waterpik is amazing. By the way this is my first review ever on Amazon after ordering numerous of things. So I had 4mm and 5mm periodontal pockets from not flossing and also experienced some bone loss, I also had to get a very uncomfortable deep gum pocket cleaning. I literally hated flossing and would find myself avoiding to floss even though I needed it very much. My gums were red, swollen, and inflamed because I was in the early stages of periodontal disease. I started using the Waterpik flosser, and instantly like this way of flossing much better! After using it consecutively each night for only five days my gums were noticeably better and felt much better." —Ebony

    Promising review: "This blender is amazing! I am a yoga teacher and always on the run, which sometimes makes it hard to eat well. I bought this after reviewing quite a few different options and I am SO glad I did. It fits well into my gym bag, is surprisingly quiet when in use, and holds a charge really well. The blades are very efficient and I’ve had no trouble blending up ice or frozen fruit. Seriously cannot recommend it enough." —Amazon Customer

    29. 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.

    Reviewer holding can of body spray

    The non-greasy formula is made with a blend of butane, petrolatum, mineral oil, ceresin, lanolin alcohol, panthenol, glycerin, bisabolol.

    Promising review: "I suffer from dry skin year-round, but the wintertime is especially brutal. Given that I'm single and not especially flexible, this has meant that my back is an itchy, rashy mess from November to March. This stuff is a LIFESAVER. Though the instructions say to rub the product in after spraying, it's really not necessary. I use this all over my body after showering and love how soft and moisturized it makes my skin feel without feeling heavy or greasy. I also love how little of it I need to use in comparison to traditional rub-on moisturizers. This relieved my itchiness after a single use and improved redness and bumps after two days. SO impressed with this product." —Sarah R.

    30. A sectioned hamper that's guaranteed to make laundry day accident proof and feel 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.,

    Promising review: "I have been wanting this for a while now and I am SO glad I was finally able to get it! It’s very nice, and has a lot of room. I bought it because I like how it lets you separate dark, light, and colors as you’re putting it in the laundry basket (preventing you from having to manually sort through it every time you do laundry), but I was pleasantly surprised it does much more than only that! It also has handles and easily folds so you can pick it up and carry it to the laundry room, and on the sides it has three separate LONG pockets that are very spacious. This is perfect for if you’re washing, for example, a coat, and wanted to detach the fur lining on the hood so you wouldn’t forget later and accidentally toss it into the load, ruining the fur (which has happened to me before)! Very wonderful, time saving, peace of mind giving, laundry basket! I’ll never be able to go back to a regular all-purpose laundry basket ever again!" —Caitlin

    31. A vegetable spiralizer because incorporating veggies into your fav meals can seem like a chore with all the prep required — and by the time you mentally prepare yourself to make your veggie heavy meal, they've spoiled in your fridge.

    Promising review: "I originally purchased this just to make zoodles. I have since expanded my use. I spiral cut vegetables for wraps, salads, sweet potato, and regular fries. I'm still experimenting! It's easy to use and easy to clean. Instructions are clear. I find I don't waste vegetables anymore." —patricia quinlan
