    40 Affordable Essentials For Every Room In Your House

    Because every room should be your favorite room.

    1. A set of Swedish dishcloths that can absorb over 20x their weight and are gritty enough to tackle tough messes. They're essentially the perfect reusable alternative to paper towels and sponges, so you can go ahead and cross those off your grocery list forever.

    2. A popular sheet set made of 100% microfiber to keep you cool and comfortable all night long. The only downside? It'll make getting out of bed even more difficult.

    3. A set of wool dryer balls that help soak up excess water and create extra space in between your clothes, meaning you won't have to run two cycles just to get your jeans completely dry.

    4. A set of bathroom organizing accessories so you can stop scattering everything all over your sink — and because nothing ruins a bathroom's aesthetic like the label on a generic bottle of soap.

    5. A six-pack of fade resistant towels, hand towels, and washcloths that over 28,900 Amazon reviewers have fallen in love with thanks to their impressive absorbency and surprisingly affordable price.

    6. A set of three storage boxes with collapsible front flaps perfect for organizing all your towels and sheets so they won't come tumbling out every time you open the linen closet.

    7. A pack of sanitizing wipes with 65% ethyl alcohol and a lavender fragrance so soothing you'll want to wipe down basically everything in your home.

    8. A low-sudsing laundry detergent that's safe for sensitive skin without skimping on the cleaning power. Its super concentrated formula means you'll also save money in the long run — so the wins just keep coming.

    9. A pair of heat-resistant silicone oven mitts, because those cloth ones you've been using barely work and you know it. They're also waterproof and extremely easy to clean, so you won't have to worry about these getting all funky in between washes.

    10. A pack of reusable beeswax wraps that are washable, reusable and biodegradable so you can finally ditch that annoying roll of plastic wrap that somehow clings to everything and nothing at the same time.

    11. A set of five desk organizers in a stunning shade of gold to keep your home office looking tidy and Instagram-ready at all times.

    13. A toothbrush holder with extra space for toothpaste, hand soap, hair products, lotion, cotton rounds, or anything else you want to keep handy.

    14. A pack of bamboo toothbrushes that are biodegradable and way more eco-friendly than the plastic one you're currently using. And let's face it — they also just look way cooler.

    15. An eight-pack of hand towels – they're soft, lightweight, and super absorbent. And you know how some skin care products and acne creams leave behind those weird discolored splotches on your towels? These are made of a "cosmetic friendly" fabric that's designed to resist those stains!

    16. A two-pack of durable pillows designed to provide support for any sleeping position, so you can turn to the side or toss over on your stomach and still get a good night's sleep.

    17. A compact and sturdy shoe rack with a surprising amount of versatility. It would work just as well in your entryway as it would in your closet, and you can even use it in the kitchen to stack dishes and random utensils. The storage possibilities are endless.

    18. A set of tables with a compact nesting design that would work perfectly as a nightstand or next to the couch as an expandable coffee table.

    19. A personalized jewelry stand to become the standout item on your vanity. You know that giant knot of tangled bracelets and earrings in your drawer right now? This will eliminate that for good.

    20. A set of storage cubes so you can contain your clutter instead of displaying it for all the world to see. Whether you slide them under your bed or place them on shelves, it'll make it seem like there's a method to your messy madness.
