    1. A set of leak-proof food storage containers so you can save yourself from making dinner tomorrow night (and from cleaning your fridge more than is absolutely necessary).

    Food storage containers stacked with food inside

    Promising review: "These are amazing because they are spill-proof, leak-proof, and lock in flavor. They are dishwasher safe, freezer safe, microwave safe, and stackable for easy storage. My son takes his lunch to work and came home raving about how he loved them and wanted me to buy more. They did not spill or leak in his lunch bag nor have a smell of food. I am purchasing more now." —Spicychic51

    Price: $19.99 for a set of 10

    2. A mini single-serve Keurig because the thought of having to make a full pot of coffee makes us do crazy things. Like buy a $5 cup of coffee every day. We only need a cup (or two). Whatever, just not a full pot.

    Promising review: "LOVE my mini Keurig. I’m the only one who drinks coffee in my household so I love the mini single-serve. It’s small and takes up minimal space on my counters." —HNH

    Price: $59.99 (originally $89.99; available in five colors)

    3. A reusable K-pod so you can enjoy your Keurig even when you forgot to restock your favorite K-Cups.

    Promising review: "Love this. Can use regular coffee instead of K-Cups from the store and still get that perfect cup of coffee each and every time. You can use any brand of coffee you prefer with the universal reusable filter. Easy to use, easy to clean." —jlorains

    Price: $11.99 (originally $13.59)

    4. A two-in-one food preservation system that keeps food fresh up to five times longer than ordinary food storage and has an express bag maker that lets you make custom-sized bags. A moment of silence for all the bags of chips that were prematurely thrown away. Gone too soon.

    Price: $172.99

    5. A Tile starter pack with a slim Tile for your wallet and a keychain Tile for your keys or phone because even the thought of losing my phone is enough to send me into a panic.


    Promising review: "I have ADD, so I can be pretty forgetful of certain things like my phone, keys, and wallet. I LOVE that Tile has helped me keep track of these items." —Rebecca

    Price: $49.99

    6. A pack of wood furniture and floor repair markers so you can finally fix those unsightly scuffs and scratches that've been bugging you (without dropping a pretty penny, of course).

    Promising review: "I was going to take before and after pictures but ended up getting carried away and fixing everything out of sheer excitement. These work great! The aftermath of our move has been dealt with splendidly." —naught

    Price: $6.97 

    7. A customizable smart all-in-one sleep and alarm device to help you fall asleep, stay asleep and gently wake up. It has a smartphone app with a library of soothing sounds and ambient lighting so you can create a personalized sleep and waking routine. Proper rest pays off. Just look how happy the model is to be waking up at 7:49 a.m. I want that.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my Hatch Restore sleep device. It has many different customization options making it perfect for just about anyone to use. It features three nighttime settings: a reading light, a wind down, and sleep mode. You choose the color and brightness of light for all three. You get a choice of stories, meditation, sleep sounds, etc. In the morning you can ease into waking up with customized sound and light settings. It has a clock display on the front and a very modern sleek look. I would recommend to anyone. Worth every penny." —Randi

    Price: $129.99

    8. A turntable organizer for a 360-degree view of your refrigerator's contents. I don't know about you, but I've lost one too many soldiers to expiration dates.

    Promising review: "I use these all around my house. I fit two of the 15-inch turntables on our top fridge shelf to make it easier to see all of the small jars. I have two 15-inch and two 10-inch turntables in our pantry and a 10-inch on my desk. They work so well for so many things!" —Jordan

    Price: $10

    9. A box of garbage disposal cleaners that foam away odor-causing build up and leaves your sink with a fresh lemon scent. Imagine no longer walking up to your sink with dread and disgust.

    Promising review: "This product really works! We had an awful smell suddenly coming from the nondisposal side sink. My husband tried a few things that did nothing. I used this disposal cleaner, which powers the cleanser through both sides of the sink. WOW! It’s completely fresh on both sides! Bonus: It has100 all-natural ingredients and is NONTOXIC! Worth every penny!" —Jojo14

    Price: $8.59

    10. A Tide pen because we refuse to lose another one of our favorite shirts to a set-in stain. Oh, you spilled salad dressing all over yourself at lunch and won't be home for another four hours? Do. Not. Panic.

    Model using Tide To-Go stick in car

    Promising review: "So convenient for on-the-go and travel! I throw this into my suitcase on trips and it has saved me from stain angst on more than one occasion. The price is reasonable for how long it lasts. I definitely recommend—especially if you’re on-the-go or travel a lot like I do, and if you’re a messy eater sometimes." —kelinthestl

    Price: $3.69+

    11. A pair of energy-saving blackout curtains that'll reduce energy loss through your windows by 25% and save you from interrupted sleep.

    Panels sold individually.

    Promising review: "The panels arrived quickly and installed without any trouble at all. The high quality material made short work of the work, and does a lot to regulate the temperature in the house when the late-day sun focuses on our sliding glass patio doors. These are attractive and sturdy; I am happy we purchased them." —JCSBimp

    Price: $19.99 (available in six colors and 11 sizes)

    12. A pack of Band-Aid blister cushions to protect your precious feet and prevent future blisters from forming. Go ahead and break in those new running shoes — we got you covered.

    Pack of Band-aid blister cushions

    Promising review: "This product is a game-changer! I applied it to a blister I got from new heels and instantly couldn’t even feel the blister pain! It stays attached for almost three full days (you are instructed not to remove the bandaid before it falls off by itself). It healed the skin underneath! It’s amazing." —Lindsey

    Price: $4.99 

    13. A knife sharpener that is safe and easy to use so you don't have to deal with the nightmarish experience of cutting a tomato with a dull knife. Or get your knives professionally sharpened. Where do you even go for that? Sounds like a hassle to me.

    The knife sharpener

    Promising review: "This knife sharpener is SOO easy to use and sharpens both Asian style and American style knives! I love that it has a 'course' and 'fine' slot to really sharpen it even more. The handle and base also have a rubber grip, making it feel very sturdy so it won’t slide around as you’re sharpening your kitchen knives! I love it and highly recommend for any kitchen!" —Lisa1219

    Price: $29.95 (originally $40)

    14. An expandable cookware rack with adjustable dividers so you can avoid solving the puzzle that is (successfully) fitting all your pots and pans in your drawer or cabinet.


    Promising review: "This turned out to be the perfect solution to a storage problem we had been working on for a long time. Product description and video very helpful. Well made." —Dave

    Price: $39.99

    15. A Bissell handheld vacuum for pet hair that'll handle any dust or dirt buildup around the house, but really shines as the solution to eliminating pet hair from your upholstery and carpet with its motorized brush. Fido, you are officially allowed back on the couch.

    Promising review: "This vacuum is worth every penny! For years I’ve had a constant battle with cat hair on my furniture. Nothing seemed to work, not even a regular vacuum cleaner. This product has amazed me at how much it actually picks up. Yes, the battery life is short. I clean up after my cat constantly. I actually don’t have to use it for a long period of time because I’m on top of it. A quick clean and I’m done. For me it’s all worth it." —Violetta

    Price: $69.99 

    16. A weighted silk sleep mask for my fellow insomniacs. It's filled with flax seed, lavender, and a cooling gel to help you peacefully drift off and wake up refreshed, sans puffy eyes.

    Model wearing purple sleep mask in bed

    Promising review: "I am so grateful I found this eye mask. I’ve tried all kinds in the last few years as I experience myriad sleep issues. One of them is needing a dark environment and I achieve this with an eye mask. This mask is soft, filled with lavender which promotes relaxation and isn’t offensive, and has an elastic strap that is adjustable to create your desired fit. It also comes with a cooling eye mask which is helpful for those that experience puffy eyes or frequent headaches. Sleep is a vital part of overall wellness. What do you have to lose besides a good night’s sleep?" —Chanel

    Price: $24.49

    17. A pack of Tile stickers to stick on the small, miscellaneous items that you always seem to lose track of. I'm convinced every remote has legs.


    Promising review: "Such an easy fix to find your things! I lose my phone and my keys more than anyone I know. I swear, I know where I laid them down but nope—they are never there. This only takes me seconds to locate what I've lost. Thanks!" —Troy

    Price: $59.99 (pack of four)

    18. A toilet paper holder that attaches onto the side of the tank in order to conserve space and time with it's double-roll feature.

    Promising review: "Rolls are out of the way, and no fear of them falling in the toilet anymore. Quality is better than expected." —rc

    Price: $11.99

    19. A handbag organizer because it doesn't matter what kind of bag you use, one thing is for sure — you will always be (frantically) rummaging through it. Until now, of course.

    Gray handbag organizer

    Promising review: "I had my eye on this for a while and when it went on sale I had to get it. It is seriously life changing. I use a Madewell medium-sized tote for work and now instead of having seven different bags for everything, all my essentials (and nonessentials) fit in this organizer! It really packs in the space, but allows room to move so I can squeeze my iPad and wallet in there too! Highly recommend for anyone who loves their totes and organization!" —johnstontv

    Price: $20 (available in three colors) 

    20. A tube of Body Glide anti-chafe balm so you can go for a hike in shorts on a sunny day without uncomfortable chafing slowing you down.

    Promising review: "Seriously I never write reviews but this little stick changed my life. I would never before be able to wear certain shorts, skirts or dresses in the summer because of chafe. But with this stick, I am able to which is the happiest thing ever! It is way better compared to trying to use deodorant. And so compact so you can throw it in your purse and reapply as needed (which is not often). 1000/10 recommend!" —Sng2000

    Price: $7.49

    21. A water bottle and straw scrub brush set because the frustration of trying to properly clean reusable water bottles and straws is almost enough for us to throw in the towel, but we will persevere.

    Promising review: "This is the best. They both work well. I really enjoy how soft the bristles on the bottle brush. It cleans really well without feeling like I’m just scraping my Hydro Flask clean." —Nes

    Price: $6.49

    22. A pack of Colgate disposable toothbrushes that don't require toothpaste, water or rinsing. Keep these in your bag so you can have that fresh, just-brushed feeling anywhere, anytime.

    24 pack of Colgate Wisps

    Promising review: "Super easy, super convenient. I have Invisalign and use these when I'm in a pinch and don't have time or ability to fully brush teeth after eating." —GK

    Price: $4.29

    23. A plug-in WiFi extender so you can finally use the internet in that one room of the house that never has a signal.

    Promising review: "I did a lot of research before buying a WiFi extender and this one rated in the top five. At first I hesitated because of the price, but I soon realized this was well invested money. This extender works flawlessly and it took no time to set up. I also saved $20 by buying this item online through Target over other competitors. Pick up was fast and easy. You will not be disappointed." —Paul

    Price: $59.99 (originally $69.99)

    24. A carabiner clip for a stroller that's not only ideal for those who are lugging around bags, strollers and baby carriers, but is also perfect for those who refuse to make more than one trip carrying groceries from the car to the house—and I'm pretty sure that's everyone.


    Promising review: "As a senior citizen, I find it hard to hold on to all the bags and other items I take with me. Each clip holds several and has a comfortable handle." —Granny Smith

    Price: $7.99

    25. A self-cleaning litter box with crystals that absorb moisture, remove odor and dehydrate/conceal waste. The worst chore in the world is finally out of your hands — literally. You don't have to scoop anymore. Just remove the bottom tray and you're good to go.

    Promising review: "I love this kitty litter box. It makes having a cat so much more enjoyable because cleaning the litter box has never been easier. I like that I don’t have to worry about scooping the litter box, knowing that this will do it for me gives me peace of mind. No more worries of an unpleasant odor either." —Rescue1

    Price: $139.99 

    26. A set of Wonder Hangers that'll ensure you can buy as many clothes as you want without worrying about having the space in your closet to fit them.

    Promising review: "This is AMAZING! I recently moved into a studio with very small closet space and this allowed me to hang all of my work and winter clothes. Highly recommend even if you have decent closet space but have a lot of clothes and looking for some organization or to maximize your space." —TJ

    Price: $14.99

    27. A one-step hair dryer brush for a sleek, salon-worthy, blow-out without the trip to the salon. Oh, and without the extreme frustration of trying to style your hair with a round brush and blow-dryer on your own.


    Promising review: "If you struggle with styling your hair, this is a game changer. I am never going back to a hair dryer. I’ve donated it, and this thing is all I use instead now." —TargetFinds

    Price: $57.99

    28. A fold-up heat mat because I can't be the only one who's burnt almost every surface possible with my curling iron.

    Price: $12.99

    29. A pack of felt furniture pads so you can slide your chair back without a care in the world.

    Scotch furniture felt pads

    Promising review: "I used the felt pads on several different items. The pads have a more-than-adequate thickness so that the item does not scratch the surface that it is setting on. I loved the multiple sizes of the pads that were included in the package. I would definitely recommend this product." —retirednwsman

    Price: $8.99

    30. A hole repairing tool that's all you need to cover up small holes, dings, or nicks. It's primer-enhanced spackle-in-a-bottle that doubles, no, triples as a putty knife and a sanding pad. That's right, you can hammer that nail into your wall and still get your security deposit back.

    Promising review: "This product is the all time BEST for quick patching! I cannot say enough good things about it except everyone should try it!" —Susy15

    Price: $7.99

    31. A gravity pet feeder to make sure your pet has a consistent supply of food when you're not around. How could we possibly be getting any work done at the office knowing our fur baby is at home starving? 😩 Problem solved. We don't have to be a stay-at-home pet parent after all.

    Promising review: "My cats love this feeder! It works great, and makes life easier for me. I only filled it halfway and it supplied my two cats enough food for four days." —John
