1. A rapid egg cooker, which prepares six eggs in any manner your heart desires — hard-, medium-, and soft-boiled eggs, two poached eggs, scrambled eggs, you name it.
2. A natural surface spray that'll work wonders on just about any surface — perfect for anyone who is sick of having to buy a specific solution for every imaginable part of their home.
3. A "disgustingly effective" set of sticky-stake insect traps to prevent leaf damage and reproductive issues stemming from pesky gnats, thrips, and fruit flies.

8. An underwear and sock divider insert because there's nothing more luxurious than meticulously folding and organizing the (neglected) supporting players of your wardrobe.
9. A soap dish that'll drain directly into the sink so you don't have to deal with the infamous Sink Puddle.
10. An over-the-door shoe organizer if your collection of kicks is growing by the second and now spilling out into communal living areas.
11. A special organization system for your keys (and mail) if you've vowed to stop getting locked out of your apartment all the time in the new year.

30. A rechargeable electric lighter that requires no flame, making it also windproof and a whole lot easier to use outside.
31. A stainless steel fish turner with slots that has me finally feeling confident in my seafood-prep abilities. (Not fishing for compliments here.)
32. A terracotta bear friend you can toss in your brown sugar to keep your supply soft and tasting fresh.
35. A multitool that might honestly serve more functions in life than I do?? (It's a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and a cutting tool!) I need a moment to process.
36. A set of vintage-style botanical prints you can frame for a super-affordable and stylish addition to your drab walls.
38. A foldable cutting board so you can dump your sliced veggies right into your pot when you've finished.
39. A pack of adhesive light sensors you can attach to your bed (or inside your drawers, if you have a storage frame) for better visibility in the middle of the night.
40. A set of magnetic spice jar dispensers, so you'll never have to ask where the salt went ever again. (Might I suggest checking the side of your fridge?)
42. An avocado slicer for anyone who is always coming dangerously close to chopping off their fingers while prepping avocados.
43. An over-the-door towel rack that'll give you some much-needed storage space without being an eyesore.

45. An off-the-beaten-path plant that might as well be from another planet — like the Bowiea volubilis (Climbing Onion). It's all about the climb.
46. And a sworn-by Magic Eraser, if the mere thought of cleanup always holds you back from meal-prepping.
