    1. A pack of Tide To Go pens, because unless your name is Logan Roy, you probably won't be prepared with a change of clothes next time disaster strikes at work.

    Promising review: "These were a lifesaver. I was walking to the bus and decided it was a great decision to drink coffee while walking. Like a scene from an infomercial, I spilled coffee all over my white shirt. Yes, the classic coffee on the white shirt. Luckily I had one of these in my bag (I put one in each of my most-used purses in anticipation of my clumsiness). I went into a store bathroom and quickly scrubbed the Tide To Go on my shirt. All of the coffee blobs went away and once the awkward wet splotches dried up, my shirt was perfectly white again. You've got yourself a big fan, Tide." β€”Debby

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (for three).

    2. A microfiber wrap that'll dry your hair in record speed β€” for those mornings you decide to take a shower even though you're already running 30 minutes late.


    Promising review: "I have wavy hair that needs product or it gets frizzy. When I took this off my head after my shower, my hair was ALMOST DRY and I had all these well-defined curls! I couldn't believe it. And the large button and wide loop make it easy to put on, unlike the others with the small button and tight loop that were so frustrating β€” they went right into the donation pile. Don't hesitate, this is worth the money!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in 12 colors).

    3. A wedge you can place under your wobbly desk or chair β€” because there's no chance in hell you're getting anything done until that wobble is gone.,

    Promising review: "They fixed my desk at work. My tests were on both hardwood flooring and carpet. They worked equally well on both. The slanted side made it easy to slip the wobble fixer under the off-balance corner. The textured top and the non-slippery bottom has kept the two I tested in place. They are not sliding back out, nor are they helping the desk slip around on the floor. I highly recommend these as a permanent solution. So much better than using a plastic knife handle, or little wooden shims that can scratch floors, or stacks of coins. (Yes, I have used all of those ideas at one time or another.)" β€”Angela M

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    4. A sleek commuter mug that actually delivers on its promise to keep your bev hot for hours on end so there's no rush to chug it on your trek to work.


    Promising review: "I love these. Any hot beverage you put in it in the morning is still at least warm by the end of the day, and the liquid stays actually hot for a very, very long time. Hours. It doesn't leak, and the ones I purchased have lasted well. By far the best coffee mug I've ever used. Some days I'll stick the last of the coffee from the maker in one of these and leave it on the counter. If I want a cup of coffee in the evening, it's still nice and warm, so no need to make a new pot for just one cup of coffee." β€”Mike Gammill

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in nine colors and four sizes).

    This was our budget pick for the best travel mug on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    5. A four-way brush cleaner that'll speedily take on whatever mess you find on your shoes just as you're about to head out the door.

    The welt surface can be used on heavy scuff marks and stains, nylon bristles for light scuffs, arched half circle for rounded corners, while the thin protruding brush is ideal for getting those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

    Promising review: "I was really sad when I thought my bucks were at the end of their road, because I had always heard that suede couldn't be cleaned. With this brush and a little elbow grease, my bucks are looking great again! I didn't use any water or cleaner, I just kept wiping the brush off on my jeans to keep the brush clean, then hit the shoe again with a clean surface. It even brightened the leather up a bit." β€”Roberto

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    6. A bug bite suction tool if you've ever had an itchy mosquito bite derail your entire day. Well, it ends here! Time to take the power back.,

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times β€” so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) β€” immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" β€”Rebecca

    Get two from Amazon for $18.95.

    7. A pack of fast-working cleaning tablets to pop into your travel mug when you're too lazy to scrub away all the grime that's accumulated at the bottom. Whaddya know: These require zero point zero zero elbow grease.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug β€” I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.60 (for a pack of 12).

    8. Speaking of no elbow grease, a "chop wizard" that'll make the most taxing part of meal prep feel like a breeze.


    Promising review: "I love my vidalia chopper! It works great! I am really lazy when it comes to chopping up veggies and such, I really don't like doing it because it takes a lot of time, but the Vidalia Chop Wizard makes it go so much faster and smoother. I don't know what I would do without it." β€”Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    9. A hanger stacker, for when you realize, "hmm, maybe ignoring the massive pile in my closet isn't the best storage solution??"

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"β€”Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79 (available in six packs).

    10. A stainless steel grocery bag dispenser that'll make a great alternative to rummaging through a pile of discarded bags underneath your kitchen sink.,

    Promising review: "There are only a few things that you need to know about something that merely holds plastic bags.

    Number one: Does it hold enough bags that it seems worth it? Yes.

    Number two: When I jam way too many bags in there, does it fall off the wall? Fortunately, no.

    Number three: Does it look stupid or cheap? Answer: No.

    Overall result: Good product, good price, good fasteners so I didn't need to use any screw to install it. Win!" β€”Matt A - Engineer, father & honest reviewer!

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. A bottle-emptying valve you can use for kitchen and bathroom products alike to get every last bit out (and, in turn, save yourself time and money).,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. I haven't found anything yet that they don't work with. Right now I have them on my lotion, shampoo, and conditioner bottles. I have always tipped my bottles over but they fall over and these help with that. I highly recommend these if you like to get the last drop out of your bottles." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get the kit from Amazon for $19.99.

    12. A towel with snappable buttons so you can carry on with your daily routine without accidentally giving your neighbors across the way some full frontal.


    Promising review: "This towel wrap is, of course, intended for use by men, and I'm sure it works well for that purpose. However, I thought I'd leave a review for any other petite females who may be looking for something like this, as I was, and haven't had much luck with the ones marketed for women. I was mainly looking for something that met two criteria: 1) didn't have Velcro and 2) didn't come down to my ankles. I've owned similar wraps in the past and was always aggravated by the way the elasticized part felt on my chest, mainly due to the Velcro. It also tends to get ruined when washed/dried, damages other items that are laundered with it, curls up, etc. I found a few wraps for women that had buttons or snaps like this one, but they were all way too long for me. I'm 5'1" and about 110 lbs. This towel wrap was exactly what I was looking for β€” it hits me at mid-thigh level, is thick but not heavy (I didn't want it to be see-through but didn't want to sweat while trying to get ready), is absorbent but soft, and it fits snugly but isn't too tight." β€”ally9

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95+ (available in 14 colors).

    And find a hook-and-loop women's version for $19.95+ (available in S–XL and in eight colors).

    13. A wooden phone dock that'll make baking with a recipe off your smartphone a much smoother task (not to mention: It'll make a big difference at work).


    Promising review: "I ordered this after I saw a friend with one and I liked it so much I ordered a second one for work. The wood looks really nice and it works perfectly for holding the phone upright or sideways. No more propping my phone on random objects for FaceTime! It comes with little silicone pads to stick on the bottom so it doesn't slide around. I use my phone for work a lot, so I keep the other one at my desk at work so I can glance over at notifications when they come in without picking up the phone." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in black walnut and white birch).

    14. A set of magnetic spice jar dispensers, so you'll never have to ask where the salt went ever again.


    Promising review: "Finally!!! We searched for a long time for spice jars that would hold a nice amount of spices. These are perfect! With a pour or sprinkle option, window to see the spice level, strong magnet, and space-saving square shape! We planned to just put our 'popular' spices in them but we love them so much we are buying another set so we can have all our spices organized!!" β€”JT

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in sets of 3, 6, 12, and 24).

    15. A cold brew coffee maker that'll beat braving the line at Starbucks during a morning rush.


    Promising review: "I was spending so much money at Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks, waiting in lines, being late for work, for burnt or watery coffee. I don't remember how I came across cold brew because I'd never heard of anything but iced coffee at that point...which I assumed was the same. Nope! It's not. As soon as I started using Seattle's Best Coffee signature blend number 5, everyone at my office started texting me at all hours of the night to bring them in some coffee! All in all I love this thing and its so easy to use. I have just bought two of the largest ones for the office!!" β€”pedikeens

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    This is our top budget pick for the best cold brew makers on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    16. A washer-friendly sock organization system (equipped with clips and locks), because your least favorite part of doing laundry β€” hands down β€” is scavenging for lost mates.


    Promising review: "If you're tired of sorting and pairing socks, then you need this product. I ordered a set for me (one for clean socks and one for dirty socks). The socks stayed secured in and out of the wash cycle and dried well. Great idea for each family member, travelers, and kids going off to college. Can be used for more than just socks. Think scarves, gloves, etc." β€”valueval

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in pink, red, blue, and dark blue).

    17. A little blind-spot mirror that attaches to your rear-view mirror so changing lanes on the freeway is slightly less stress-inducing.


    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these it's been a blessing β€” I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, and it's helpful when I parallel park in the city." β€”Mariam Abass

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97 (for two).

    18. A rapid egg cooker, which'll perfectly prepare six eggs in any manner your heart desires β€” hard-, medium-, and soft-boiled eggs, two poached eggs, scrambled eggs, you name it. You really can't mess this up.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $19.99+ (available in five colors).

    Read more about this rapid egg cooker here.

    19. A meal planner, so you don't have to drain 50% of your energy on a Chopped-style scavenger hunt in your kitchen every time you get home from work.


    Promising review: "As a busy working mom, this is fantastic! I keep an ongoing list of groceries needed on the right side (I modify mine based on what store I am going to) and then what's for dinner on the left side. I have four teenagers, and there is always someone who is asking, 'What's for dinner?' so this does the trick as now they just need to look at the list! Perfect for the busy family, and LOVE the magnet on the back!" β€”Lauren T.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    20. A 100% polyester satin pillow cover that'll help eliminate bedhead (and, in turn, shave a good chunk of time off your morning grooming).


    Promising reviews: "Best pillow case ever!! It feels so nice. Stays cool, which is a need for me, I have a hot head! And it keeps my super curly hair from frizzing." β€”Lindsay Evans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors).

    21. A pack of super effective ear plugs for those mornings when the garbage truck swings by your window 30 minutes before you planned on getting out of bed.

    Promising review: "I purchased these ear plugs because I suffer from something called annoying neighbors syndrome. I would liken the sounds coming from below and across from my apartment to that of an auto shop or a construction site, perhaps even an airplane hanger. It's particularly horrendous in the evening. Therefore, I have resulted to earplugs to ensure I get a somewhat worthwhile night of sleep. The contour capabilities of these ear plugs make them incredibly comfortable to wear. After inserting the ear plugs and allowing them to adjust, silence befell my bedroom. I was able to sleep free from the obnoxious noises that surround my apartment. My only complaint is perhaps these ear plugs work a little too well. I missed my an hour and a half. The ear plugs blocked every bit of noise. After the initial panic of being late for work wore off, I was slightly amused that my neighbors had to listen to my alarm while I, for once, slept through their douchebaggery. These will be the only ear plugs I wear from now on." β€”Emily Buss

    Get them from Amazon for $5.05 (for 10).

    22. A sheet of stick-on sound dampeners so you don't have to worry about being woken up when your roommates decide to open and close cabinets for a midnight snack.,

    Promising review: "These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you're wiping down the part of the cabinet they'll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while." β€”LMA

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (for a sheet of 100).

    23. A honeycomb-style drawer organizer, because half the battle of every morning shouldn't be finding your other sock.


    The organizer is not only super easy to assemble (just snap the pieces together) but it's also easily customizable (the strips can be trimmed to fit just about any space).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    24. A clinically recommended menthol formula you can apply to your sore, knotted back for some relief.


    Promising review: β€œBiofreeze is a great product for aches and pains. My massage therapist recommended it years ago and I've been a dedicated customer ever since. Anytime I'm tense or have a knot in my neck or back I use it. It really helps to relax the area and allows me to work out the problem areas. My husband uses it for chronic back pain to cool the area and help him stretch out his back better.” β€”Sara F

    Get it from Amazon for $10.76.

    25. A dry shampoo that'll absorb all the oil at your roots and give you that nice, textured, "nope I definitely didn't wake up 15 minutes ago" look.


    Promising review: "Batiste is hands down the BEST dry shampoo I have come across. I have bangs, fine hair, and oily skin β€”Β an unfortunate trifecta. To combat this look, I have invested in a multitude of dry shampoo and oil-reducing products, and while rice paper ended up a winner for my skin, no dry shampoo out there seemed to cut it for me...until Batiste.

    I spritzed some on my (previously air-dried) bangs and roots before bed and put my hair in a top knot (without brushing) and woke up the next morning with volume and waves like I've only had from a professional blowout β€”Β and it stayed like that all day!

    I was so impressed after that first use that I decided to test it further. I went to a smoke-filled bar one night and instead of washing my hair before bed as I normally would, I puffed on some of this dry shampoo (brushing it through this time), did my top knot and went to bed. The next morning, the ashtray smell was gone (not just in my opinion, either β€”Β I made about 10 people smell me that day to make sure) and my hair was clean-smelling and soft with some nice body to it." β€”CaffeinatedDaria

    Get it from Amazon for $8.29.

    FYI, this is our budget pick for the best dry shampoo at three different price points on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    26. And an organizing insert for your bag, if it seems like there's always something MIA when you need to leave β€” be it your keys, phone, or wallet.

    Promising review: "The quality is amazing and it gives the bag a great shape. The compartments inside are quite roomy and it makes it very easy to find everything at a glance. I will definitely order the red and the brown for my other bags." β€”Rania Eleish

    Get it from Amazon for $13.28+ (available in 14 colors).
