    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.

    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. 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.

    You'll need four AA batteries to get this thing going. It has three speed options — all you do is place it in a pan, turn it on, and it will rotate the food on its own! You can also take off the legs to clean them in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Used it today to start a cheese sauce. I love it! I didn’t have to stand over the saucepan stirring or whisking. Lately, I have had some arthritis in some fingers. It’s perfect for us cooks!!!!" —PaulaBotta

    Get it from Amazon for $35.95

    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.

    Promising review: "Unbelievably pigmented! Better than any purple shampoo I have ever used. I finally found exactly what I was looking for thanks to researching and reading reviews! I'll never go back to anything else." —Jessica c

    Get it from Amazon for $10.75+ (available in three sizes).

    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.

    the warmer with a beverage in it

    Promising review: "I had gone through two other coffee warmers in a month, both of which got raving reviews on Amazon but barely kept coffee warm for 30 minutes. So I decided to splurge on this more expensive one. BEST DECISION EVER! Not only does it keep your coffee warm, it keeps it HOT on the highest setting. It does an excellent job at keeping your coffee hot for as long as you want, PLUS it is super easy to turn on and off. When you turn it off, it displays the lowest hot setting light to show you the plate is still hot so no unsuspecting burns. This is hands down the best option on the market."Elizabeth Harris

    Get it from Amazon for $23.29+ (available in eight colors).

    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).

    Promising review: “I love these overalls/jumpers! They are quite comfortable and roomy. I got an XL in them and they fit just as I would like. I wanted that baggy feel to show when I would wear them. The material is just a little on thin side, thus making the overalls very light to move in. But still, that's not really a con either and only something to point out. I believe the material type is cotton. Overall, I love them and might purchase another color in them in the future!" —Interesting

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 36 colors and women's sizes XS–5XL).

    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!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed, Mane Club

    Mane Club is a small business based in California that specializes in vegan and cruelty-free hair products.

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping Editor Elizabeth Lilly (pictured above) has to say about this:

    "I have a very thick head of naturally curly hair and have put it through just about everything, including all kinds of hot tools, at-home dye kits, the gamut of shampoo and conditioner types, basically every dry shampoo and hair oil in existence, and just about anything else to try for a story for you dear readers. Lots of products have either straight-up failed, been meh enough for me to not recommend, or fantastic but so costly that I feel guilty recommending them. Basically, a lot of stuff ends up in the trash or pawned off on my (grateful) friends when it isn't a fit for me. But THIS STUFF. This stuff has become my go-to for spraying on my wet hair and then blow drying. Normally I'd apply a heat protector and an oil treatment or leave-in conditioner before blow-drying. But this 10-in-1 treatment takes the cake! Most of the time when I use it, I don't even need to finish off my hair with hair oil (I've been doing that as an essential hair step for years now). It's really that good! Here I have freshly blow dried hair with just this post-shower using this Amika blow-dryer brush. This brush is fantastic on its own but this spray-on treatment has more or less doubled this brush's effectiveness. My hair comes out feeling softer, looking shinier and healthier, and stays looking good for days — which is especially great news because I wash my hair about every four days. 'Tis time for me to unload a bunch of hair products I now no longer need to my friends."

    Get it from Mane Club for $8.

    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.,

    Promising review: "If you suffer from any type of headache, BUY THIS. It is totally worth the money. It lessens the pain and leaves you with the ability to think/process. For me, that is the most difficult to deal with, as I often have to power through a migraine while I am either teaching high school English or corralling a 4-year-old and an 18-month-old. This will take away the nausea and the throbbing, but you do still feel out of sorts. Better than the full migraine though, so go for it!" —Scout

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    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.

    The portable monitor attached to a laptop

    Promising review: "I bought this so I can work from home in the pandemic, as I have three screens at work and only a laptop at home. Best decision ever! This product, packaging, and the easy instructions are the greatest! So happy with my purchase. My sister thought it was so amazing that she bought one too and thanked me a lot for suggesting it! Great product!" —Crystal Emerald Green

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

    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!


    Promising review: "I'm in LOVE with the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line. This is the only brand I buy now. As a new mom, painting your toenails is kind of a rare luxury, so I place a high value on getting it done quickly. This polish allows me to do it fast, without sacrificing durability. I highly recommend this polish for busy adults." —KFrench

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in 16 colors).

    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!

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This allows one to get to the point. Great for busy individuals or overthinkers. It also helps you gauge what is important and what it is you want to highlight about that day in a couple of sentences. I have forgotten to write for a few days but it was easy to catch back up since the diary is so direct. I love the concept. The book is small so it makes storage or travel a breeze." —SouthernMs

    Get it from Amazon for $12.16 or Bookshop (to support local booksellers) for $15.59.

    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.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    To use, add coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), and let it brew for 12–24 hours. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our Tayeka cold brew maker review for more!

    Promising review: "This coffee maker is my BEST FRIEND! I use this every day, it's so easy to use! My coffee comes out perfect every time. I'm a cold-coffee drinker and I put about 8–10 scoops of freshly ground coffee into the filter. I let it sit overnight and the next morning, I remove the filter and dump the grounds. It makes four days' worth of coffee and I love that it's ready to go for me, especially since I wake up at 4:50 a.m. and I need to make my coffee quickly! It's very easy to clean as well." —Panda

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    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.,

    Promising review: "I did not know I needed this in my life. I saw a video of someone obsessed with the drink London Fog (Earl Grey tea, vanilla, and milk), and she offhandedly mentioned you can easily make your own if you get a frother. At home, I mostly make different versions of drip coffee because frothers seemed so 'extra' until I got this! To put this little guy together, you do need two AA batteries. It comes with a little stand. I made a very strong drip coffee (Blue Bottle Bella Donovan), warmed up whole milk in the microwave, stuck the frother in the middle of the milk, wiggled it around a bit, added 3 teaspoons of sugar (I like it sweet), and it was so good!!! So perfect. Plus the side of the box has a QR code with a link to some recipes, a coupon, and it automatically registers your warranty. Pretty awesome! I’m super excited for future matcha lattes and practicing latte art. Also! My coffee shop costs like $5, almost $6, for a latte. I’m lactose intolerant so every latte I have to pay $0.70 more. I just hate that! This will save me money and I get my cozy caffeine fix in the comfort of my own home!" —RobinFromCalifornia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in 40 colors).

    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.,

    Promising review: "First time review and it’s because I’m so happy with this dryer/styler! My hair is about shoulder length, very fine with a slight curl, and now it has some gray to it. It’s also frizzy, no matter what I use. I’m 61 years old so trust me, I’ve used a lot of products! Never have I been able to get my hair to look like it did after leaving the salon, EXCEPT after using this. I watched some YouTube videos first for some pointers, and then I gave it a try. It’s easy to use, even though it’s bigger than I thought it would be. My hair came out beautiful! Smooth, soft, no frizz, and lots of volume. Hope this review helps you anyone out there that have similar hair!" —Anon anon

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in six colors).

    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!

    model wearing a purple hair turban

    Promising review: "I wash my hair every day, and it normally takes 20–25 minutes to blow-dry with water dripping everywhere. This turban is my savior! I can just wear it after showering, do other things for 15 minutes, then the blow-dry takes only five minutes! It's really great, especially in the summer. Who wants to have a hot dryer facing you for 25 minutes in this heat? I've used it for a year every day, and it's still doing the job perfectly." —Web Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in seven colors).

    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.

    The charger with text "high speed charging"

    This has two USB ports to charge two devices at a time, and it holds enough juice to charge *over* THREE iPhone 8s.

    Promising review: "Purchased this charger because I was tired of my devices dying and scrabbling for an outlet. It comes with a mesh pouch to store the charger, USB, and a neat little light. I love the paw print, which shows how much charge life is remaining on the charger as well as a visual cue when it's operating. It's a bit heavier than I would like but the fact that I can fully charge my phone and headset and still have extra battery left makes up for it. Overall a great purchase." —KW

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two colors). 

    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.


    You can cook up to six eggs at a time. Make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, or individual omelets in a matter of minutes!

    Promising review: "If you eat hard-boiled eggs often this is absolutely 100% worth the money just for that. Eggs come out perfect every time. No green rings. No rubbery whites. Easy to peel every time. It's easy, faster than boiling water, and every egg turns out the same. Makes other kinds of eggs, too, and according to the booklet you can steam veggies and other things in it, too. But OMG even if you only ever used it for hard-boiled eggs it's worth it. I don't think I've ever given a product 5 stars like this before. Also, skeptics: Yes, I know boiling eggs isn't hard. It's the consistent results with even less effort that's remarkable." –Crockery

    Get it from Amazon for $18.36+ (available in seven colors).

    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.

    white bottle of briogeo scalp revival dry shampoo

    It also has witch hazel, which helps normalize oil production over time. When using, let the dry shampoo sit for two minutes and then brush or finger through the hair thoroughly until the powder is removed.

    Briogeo is a Black-owned, woman-owned small business that specializes in cruelty-free, gluten-free, mostly vegan hair products. Every product is also 6-free, which means it has no harsh sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, DEA, or artificial dyes.

    Promising review: "Such an interesting concept I couldn't help but cave in and give it a try. I am so so so glad I did. This product has been a legit lifesaver for my scalp. I anticipate relying on this beauty during the summertime when California days get extremely hot and endless. Plus it has added biotin to help my hair grow. Love this product." —kellbells

    Get it from Briogeo for $24.

    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.


    Promising review: "This is essential for busy people. My boyfriend and I have very different schedules. He works a full-time job, I work two part-time jobs, go to school full time, and am usually part of a theater production or two. This whiteboard calendar, coupled with some colorful dry-erase markers, is ESSENTIAL! Not only does my boyfriend know what my schedule looks like this week, but I know where I'm supposed to be and when. It was very easy to put up and seems like it would be easy to move." —Kalen Stockton

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    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.


    Some reviewers say they can even fit smaller folders or notebooks inside. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on these amazing folders.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've always been the type of person to have a different folder for each subject in school, and to buy new folders every semester because they accumulate wear and tear by the end of the term. But it became too annoying to have to switch out notebooks and folders every day depending on what classes I had. It also increased the likelihood that I'd forget a folder for a particular class, so I gave this a try. After four months of continuous use, it's held up really well! It holds everything that I need and it is always by my side. It actually still looks somewhat new. I got compliments on it because it's cute and a great organizational tool." —KaleSensei

    Get it solid colors for $7.99 (available in 11 colors) or florals for $7.98+ (available in four colors), both from Amazon.

    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!


    You can also fold it down and take it to go.

    Promising review: "This is the most amazing invention ever. My husband and I got into a habit of piling up all our random papers in the kitchen on top of the microwave, and I was just SICK of it! Could never find anything and things would go missing. Once I set this up, it was a game changer. My kitchen mess is no longer! And I have not lost another field trip form and have a place for all those floating art projects, receipts, and pay stubs." —Kirsten

    Get it from Amazon for $9.76+ (available in three colors).

    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.


    The packaging is completely zero-waste — they're tube and cap free (wrapped in paper instead) and rest in a recycled carrying case made from upcycled materials.

    Credo Beauty is a woman-owned small business based in San Francisco that features cruelty-free beauty and personal care products and never stock products that have ingredients on their Dirty List.

    Promising review: "This product is fabulous. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. I thought the texture might be too crayon-like, but it’s absolutely not. It blends beautifully and lasts. I chose the shade Raspberry. It’s a wonderfully happy fuchsia/hot pink color." —Heidi J.

    Get it from Credo Beauty for $14 (available in 10 colors).

    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!

    The filled out pad propped up on a desk

    The handy labeled sections on the pad are "Top Priorities," "To-Do List," "Notes & Ideas," "Date," "Today I'm Grateful For," "Important Times," "Meals, Snacks & Water," and "Exercise/Self-Care."

    Promising review: "I use my iPhone as a calendar, but it has its limitations; I still prefer paper when it comes to planning. This daily page planner motivates me to take care of myself while I take care of the things that need to be done. I like that the 'must do today' section only has three spaces, while there's much more room below to write additional tasks for later. This keeps me from piling too many tasks on myself. It also has a place to track water intake and three square meals, and one of my favorite parts is the box in which I am asked to write what I am thankful for each day." —Donna T. Edmundson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in two colors; also available in eight other organizational pads, from meal planning to meeting notes).

    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.

    Promising review: "My summer handbag has no dividers, so everything falls into a lump together. I was so pleased to find the smaller slender option for this organizer. It slides down into my purse with room on the sides to spare — this is exactly what I wanted since it lets me put things into the organizer and then other things outside of it on either side. I ordered the gray color and am very satisfied with the construction and fabric used." —Jay

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in five sizes and 16 colors).

    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.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention ever! I’m a sauce queen and this allows me to have sauce in my car without wasting it! Whoever invented this knows my love language!" —Quintana

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.45+ (available in four colors).

    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.

    model jotting down a note while in the shower

    Don't worry — it comes with a pencil!

    Promising review: "For someone with mild ADD or anxiety as I have, this was life-changing. It seems silly, but for anyone with a busy life or who is just stressed, this is one of the simplest, most valuable things I can think of. Beyond that, I have 5-starred it because I've had one for 18 months and can't find any flaw or way the product can be improved. It's simple and does what it's supposed to. So why do I say life changing? Rule number one when under stress is get things out of your head and captured somewhere so you can actually focus on whatever task might be at hand without worrying about forgetting. The shower was the one place I couldn't capture anything and often where everything came to mind." —Adrian J Gell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75.

    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.


    Promising review: "I've tried so many different products that are supposed to allow you to carry multiple bags at once, but nothing has worked as well as this! It's easy to use: Just hold one end of the handle and thread the other end through the handles on the bags. Carrying the bags over my shoulder works really well for me because it allows me to spread the weight of the bags over my hips and back rather than taking all the weight on my shoulder. It's very well made, sturdy, and really makes your life easier. It's worth the money." —S. Hill

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    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!

    Plus, this is shatter resistant, dishwasher safe, and comes with an ice cube tray and funnel! ANDDD it's quiet, so you'll feel comfortable making your smoothie at work.

    Promising review: "I was on the hunt for a silent personal blender because mine is so loud and annoying to clean every morning when I just want one little drink. This little baby came up and it changed my life. MY LIFE. I blend it in my room and my roommate never hears it (we share a wall, too). I can take it to class and just throw it in my bag to clean when I get home. Saves a lot of time, and for $30 it’s pretty amazing." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in five colors).

    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!


    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out...but to my surprise I put the left cat-eye on first and it was perfect. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye...again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I can now do a cat-eye EVERY day and look/feel like a badass. Everyone can think I spend hours doing my makeup in the morning." —LadyMeow

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.04+ (available in two sizes).

    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.,

    The bags can hold up to 50 pounds, and they're machine washable.

    Promising review: "I purchased these bags because I have quite a walk from my garage to my house. These bags are AMAZING! I stuff them full and they never tear. I also get water by the gallon and these bags hold them. They make my life easier!! Try these bags, you will love them!" —MB

    Get a set of five bags from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 11 color sets).

    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., Amazon

    Promising review (for the elliptical): "It’s the best home exercise machine I’ve ever used. It’s perfect for using at the office if you’ve got a sit-down desk job, and also great to use at home while you sit and play video games at your PC or on your couch." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review (for the pedaler): "This excellent little pedal exerciser works! I sit all day. I use it, 10 minutes at a time, four or five times a day. In just a week my legs are stronger, counteracting too much sitting. It is strong and solid but also lightweight. It will fit under your desk. GET ONE!" —Holeshot Hunter

    Get the elliptical from Amazon for $349 (available in two colors) or get the pedaler from Amazon for $35.99.

    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.

    A reviewer photo of the I'm Dead, Now What? book cover

    This is not a legal will but it is designed to help you get organized so you can make one. And it helps to spell out everything that your loved ones might wonder in case the unthinkable happens.

    Promising review: "Don’t let the title throw you (you can order the same material with a 'softer' title if you want, but why?), this book allows you to enter the information that your loved ones will need when you’re gone...and save them so much trouble at a time when they have enough grief to deal with. As an estate planning attorney, I recommend these books to ALL my clients. And remind them to keep the info up to save the ones you love time, anguish, and money." —PJ

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    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.

    Cusa Tea & Coffee

    This has recyclable packaging and all varieties are organic-certified black and green teas and Rainforest Alliance–certified Arabica coffee, fruits, spices, and herbs, and are free of added sweeteners or preservatives.

    Cusa Tea & Coffee is a small biz inspired by the traditional tea shops of Hong Kong, as well as plantations and shops throughout China, India, and Southeast Asia. Its mission is to use a cold brew process that wouldn't damage the nuance of high-quality tea and coffee.

    Get it from Cusa Tea & Coffee: the mocha coffee for $33.99 (for 30 servings; also available in larger packs) and the English breakfast tea for $17.99 (for 30 servings; also available in larger packs).

    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.

    reviewer's HyperChiller next to a glass of iced coffee

    Promising review: "Perfect for making iced coffee! I absolutely love this! I was a little uncertain about it when I bought it because I didn't really understand how it worked (and it was a little expensive). That being said, I really care about my iced lattes so I gave it a shot. I have no regrets whatsoever — I use it probably five times a week, and I love that I don't have to deal with watered-down iced coffees!" —Nicole

    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.

    Promising review: "My cat is a little chubby, would wake the whole house in the morning, and bully people in the house to be fed in the afternoon. This feeder has helped him disassociate his feeding with people, so that he is less of a jerk. He now takes a nap or just waits within earshot of the feeder when hungry. It did take him a bit to get over the motor noise when he first heard the tray rotate. This made him tentative when first approaching the bowl, but he got over it after a while." –John Soukup

    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!

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." —Seth

    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.,

    Promising review: "Wow...worth the money!!!! Thanks to my mom, ever since I got my Eufy vacuum robot, I was in LOVE!!!! It did an amazing job keeping the house clean. Honestly, I was so impressed with the vacuum. You would think my house was clean, but when I used the vacuum on the house, it picked up so much dirt and junk, it was incredible. What was so astounding about Eufy was it was so quiet and yet the suctioning power was impressive." —YKR

    You can choose from 30 different sound options, and it's also compatible with speakers and headphones!

    Promising review: "I have suffered from insomnia all my life, and have found if I fall asleep listening to something I sleep better. I tried falling asleep to the TV, but invariably around 3 a.m., I would wake up listening to crazy infomercials. Then, while traveling, my husband and I stayed in a very nice hotel that had this product in our room. I tried it and slept like a baby the whole time we were there! I knew I had to have one at home, and ordered this as soon as we got home. I love that it has so many different sounds to choose from, as well as volume adjustment. You can leave it on all night or set the timer to shut off. This is a fantastic product, and while not inexpensive, in my opinion, well worth the money." —Tamstrat

    These detanglers from Wad-Free aren't recommended for use with bamboo, eucalyptus, or rayon sheets.

    Wad-Free is a small business that invented this laundry gadget to prevent sheets from tangling, twisting, and balling up during the laundry process.

    Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and, well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy

    Promising review: "Wow! I saw this on Facebook and decided to purchase it. It's really amazing! Slice a frozen package of ground beef or chicken under the claw and in no time the food is thawed. I've used this on chicken breasts, frozen salmon, and ground beef, and while I am preparing the other ingredients I've left this in the sink with just enough cold water to cover the claw and my meat is ready. You will not be disappointed!" —Jim Wamsley
