    38 Things For Anyone Who Wishes There Were More Than 24 Hours In A Day

    No, we can't magically add a 25th hour to the day, but we can help you make the most of the precious time you have.

    1. An automatic stirrer so your food doesn't burn at the bottom of the pan as you're running around the kitchen doing a million tasks, like chopping veggies, answering the phone, or listening to your kid ask, "Is dinner ready yet?" a million times.

    2. Fanola Purple Shampoo to extend the life of your latest highlight job — the purple cancels out any of those dreaded yellow, brassy tones so you can spend more time rocking those gorgeous locks and less time sitting in a salon chair.

    3. A coffee warmer if you tend to get caught up answering emails in the morning and your coffee gets cold before you've even taken a sip. Now your morning java will stay gloriously warm for as long as you need it to.

    4. An overall jumpsuit for the days you can't even think of putting together an outfit. Just throw this on, add accessories, and you're ready to hit the town in style (and comfort).

    5. Mane Club's 10-in-1 Leave-in Spray that truly lives up to its name — whether you're looking for a heat protectant, detangler, or something to fight frizz, this magical formula has got you covered. We love a product that multitasks as well as you do!

    6. A roll-on Migrastil Migraine Stick — many reviewers say it helps give them relief from migraine symptoms that can often stop them in their tracks and derail their day. Apply to your temples, forehead, and back of the neck at the first sign of a migraine.

    7. A portable monitor for all those hard workers who just have way too much going on in a day to contain it on one screen. With this, you can take your laptop anywhere and still have enough screen real estate for all those applications you need open.

    8. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish if you want to rock a bold nail color but don't have time to head to the salon. This polish dries in about a minute flat!

    9. The One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book, which is ingeniously designed to help even the busiest of people get into journaling. Right before you go to bed, whip out a pen and jot down just one little memory from the day. You'll love having a mini-history of yourself when you're done with it!

    10. A cold brew maker so you can have high-quality iced coffee waiting in your fridge when you wake up in the morning, bleary eyed and in need of caffeine ASAP. Future you is going to be so happy.

    11. And a milk frother so you can add some gloriously fancy foam to your drink. It's like having a professionally made drink without having to make the trek to the coffee shop.

    12. A Revlon hot-air brush magically designed to dry and style hair with just a few passes. It'll create bouncy, shiny hair in about a quarter of the time it would take with a traditional blow-dryer and round brush.

    13. Or this super-absorbent microfiber hair turban that actually cuts down on drying time without damaging your hair. Wear this as you make your breakfast in the morning, and then blow-drying will take 10 minutes or less!

    14. A portable charger if you're constantly on the go and don't have time to recharge your phone by plugging it in. Now, if you notice your phone's at 3% in the middle of an important work call, you can just plug it into this. Crisis averted.

    15. A rapid egg cooker for easily whipping up your preferred style of eggs in the morning. If you're a big breakfast person, you absolutely need this in your life.

    16. A dry shampoo formulated with charcoal, clay, and tapioca to absorb excess oil at the roots so you don't have to walk around with greasy hair, even if you didn't have time to wash your hair this morning.

    17. A peel-and-stick dry-erase weekly calendar every busy family needs — now you can keep track of everyone's sports practices, doctors appointments, and important dates all in one easy-to-reference place.

    18. A cute and sturdy file folder great for busy students who have lots of papers to carry around. Organize your homework, notes, and worksheets by subject, and you'll be able to transport them to the library, a coffee shop, or to class.

    19. Or this cascading wall organizer so you can finally get that huge pile of paper off of your desk and actually be able to find that important document when you need it. It's also great for teachers looking to organize their students' assignments!

    20. An all-over color stick from Axiology that comes in a variety of colors so you can create a monochromatic look that truly complements your skin tone. Perfect for the days you're running out of time and have *checks clock* about 47 seconds to devote to your makeup look.

    21. A tear-off planning pad so you can keep track of everything and anything important that pops up in your day. Yes, that 1:30 p.m. meeting needs to happen, but you also have to carve out some time to eat lunch, too!

    22. A felt handbag insert because nobody has the time to dig through their bag whenever they're looking for their keys, wallet, or sunglasses. This will transform any Mary Poppins bag into an organized paradise.

    23. A dipping sauce holder that attaches to the AC vent of your car for an optimal on-the-go chicken nugget–dunking or fry-dipping experience. Listen — eating in your car is sometimes the reality of being a busy person, and at least this makes the task a little more enjoyable.

    24. A waterproof notepad because we all know our best ideas come to us in the shower! Showertime might just be the only time you have to yourself in a day, so if you happen to use that time to brainstorm for your upcoming assignment or think up your grocery list, you can just jot it down mid-shampoo so you won't forget.

    25. A hands-free shopping bag carrier if, because of your busy schedule, going to the grocery store is a rare occurrence and now you have oodles of bags to carry home. Never fear — this ergonomically designed carrier can hold up to 200 pounds while still leaving your hands free to open doors or make phone calls.

    26. A portable personal blender that doesn't even need a plug to work (it's rechargeable!) so you can take this with you to make a filling, nutritious morning smoothie at work, post-gym, or basically anywhere you want!

    27. A set of Lovoir winged eyeliner stamps so you don't have to spend precious time trying (and failing) to perfect your winged liner. This will save you from so much frustration during your makeup routine!

    28. A pack of reusable grocery bags that fold down to about the size of your palm, which means you can keep one in your bag or your car if you happen to have 30 minutes to squeeze in a last-minute grocery store run.

    29. A mini elliptical or bike pedaler if you're trapped at your desk all day every day but still want to get your body moving and your blood pumping.

    30. An estate planning journal so you can finally square away all those important (albeit morbid) details involved with making a will in one convenient place. Now you won't have that task looming over your head constantly.

    31. An instant organic mocha coffee or English breakfast tea for the days you're being pulled into a million different meetings and you need a caffeine jolt but only have, like, two minutes. Just heat up some water, pour one of the packets in, and keep on trudging through your busy schedule.

    32. Or a long-lasting HyperChiller that can chill your hot coffee in less than 60 seconds (yes, you read that right!). It also works great for other beverages like tea, juice, or wine that you want to chill at a moment's notice.

    33. A dog and cat automatic feeder that you can preprogram to dispense food throughout the day in case you always work long, unpredictable hours. Reviewers says that this automatic feeder is impossible to break into, so you don't have to worry about your pet overeating during the day.

    34. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray so you don't have to pull out your ironing board, wait for your iron to heat up, and then tediously work all those wrinkles out. With this, all you have to do is spray and go!

    35. A robot vacuum because anything that can do a chore for you is definitely worth the splurge. It's extra useful if you have a dog that sheds constantly and you can never keep up with all that fur.

    36. A sound machine that'll drown out the sounds of rowdy neighbors or loud construction so you can finally get a good night's sleep and actually be well rested for the busy day ahead.

    37. A bedsheet detangler to prevent your bedsheets from getting bunched up in the washing machine and dryer. They actually make your sheets dry faster with less wrinkles!

    38. A Thaw Claw that keeps your frozen meat submerged in cool water, which is a safe and super-effective way to defrost your meat when you're in a rush. It comes in clutch for those nights you don't have time to run to the grocery store but still want to have a home-cooked meal.
