    1. A versatile chop, slice, and dice unit that'll drastically *cut* down on food prep and cleanup time with interchangeable blades that can each be popped into the dishwasher.

    2. A bleach-free Wet & Forget shower cleaner for not only cleaning but preventing soap scum buildup. Once a week simply give your shower a spray, let it sit overnight, rinse off the next day, then — BOOM — you're done and didn't even break a sweat.

    3. An under-cabinet lid opener if you live alone, have mobility issues, or pickle and pasta sauce jars just so happen to be your mortal, hand-cramping enemy.

    4. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets because (to my shock and horror) you have to clean the thing that cleans your dishes, and these tablets make doing so as quick and easy as...well...running the dishwasher.

    5. A pack of Downy fabric spray so you can rock wrinkle-free fits even when there's no time (or energy) to break out the iron. Just spray, give your clothes a few swipes, and watch the wrinkles rapidly fall away.

    6. An interactive dancing cat toy to help your feline friend work up a sweat without breaking one yourself. This simple toy is naturally springy so a flick of the wrist is all you need to idly keep your cat entertained while you do the real work of binge-watching Squid Game.

    7. A bottle of professional-grade callus-removing gel that quickly removes years' (I repeat, YEARS') worth of hard calluses without endless scraping and scrubbing. Reviewers say dead skin dissolves in mere minutes, so I'd start picking out a new pair of sandals, like, now.

    8. A bagless, touchless stationary vacuum for anyone ready to ditch their dustpan for something a little more high-tech and a lot more convenient. Simply sweep towards it and your new vac will take care of the rest.

    9. A rechargeable hair trimmer if you want silky-smooth legs without partaking in the laborious act of shaving. This palm-sized shaver can be used anytime, anywhere, without soap or water, *and* is perfect for anyone who regularly struggles with nicks, irritation, and razor bumps.

    10. A pack of cleaning K-Cups because the inside of your Keurig is likely coated with residue from old brews. Now you can give your machine regular deep cleans in the same amount of time it takes to make a cup o' joe. Side effects may include better-tasting coffee.

    11. An all-in-one hot air brush so you can style, dry, and volumize hair in one easy step. This gadget combines the heat of a blowdryer with the shape and bristles of a round brush to make at-home blowouts a breeze.

    12. A set of brush scrubber drill attachments to eliminate caked-on soap grime with a fraction of the usually required elbow grease. Charge up your standard electric drill, attach the right brush head for the job, and let the modern luxury of motorized rotation cut through grime quicker than your sad sponge ever could.

    13. A genius T-shirt roll holder that holds up to 16 shirts and makes picking out what to wear a lot easier than digging through the depths of your probably too-full drawers.

    14. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes for helping all your plant babies live their healthiest, happiest indoor lives without you needing to tend to them constantly. One fertilizer spike continuously feeds plants with nutrients they need to thrive for up to two months!

    15. A comfortable supportive tank top if you're tired of counting down the seconds until you can tear off your bra. With this smoothing tank, you can ditch the bra altogether and enjoy wire-free support that's comfortable enough to wear all day.

    16. An affordable teeth-whitening pen because traditional strips are tough to use, expensive, and can leave you with teeth sensitivity that is, in my professional opinion, NO fun. This pen requires just ONE minute of daily use to get teeth that are four to eight shades whiter. The best part? No lingering sensitivity.

    17. An ergonomic neck and shoulder relaxer so you can lay down and do something good for your body at the same time. Just 10 minutes a day with this pillow can help align your spine and reduce neck and shoulder pain.

    18. A set of time-saving elastic shoelaces to install on those sneakers that just always come untied so you literally never have to tie them again.

    19. A houseplant leaf funnel that'll make watering your indoor jungle a lot quicker and easier. More water in your plant's pot = less water all over your floors.

    20. A tube of Glossier Boy Brow for instantly filling and fluffing brows with just a couple of quick swipes. Now, who's ready to face the day with the best brows on the block?

    21. A variety pack of ready-to-eat beans if there just doesn't feel like enough time in the day to cook up the nutritious (and delicious) meals you crave. Simply warm up a packet in the microwave or on the stove and you've got a ready-made protein to mix into any meal in minutes.

    22. A hair-removing glove because you're already going to give your pet all the scritches they deserve, you may as well multitask with a massage mitt that will remove hair and help curb shedding.

    23. A peel-off polish barrier so you can get a professional-looking mani even if you're a nail novice. Apply this before applying polish to ensure an easy cleanup if you accidentally color outside the lines.

    24. A too-cute full-coverage bib with long sleeves and an extended length to curb mealtime messes and save you from spending every evening in the laundry room.

    25. These microfiber makeup-remover cloths that are shockingly effective at wiping away even your darkest smoky eye look with JUST WATER! It can't get much simpler than that, folks.

    26. A concentrated allergen spray for a quick and easy way to reduce the presence of airborne and surface allergens from pets, mites, and more. Time to spray away those sneezes!

    27. A pair of ultra-comfy Crocs slides if you're on the hunt for a shoe with the perfect ease-to-comfort ratio. Behold! These slides feel like clouds for your feet and can even be customized with Jibbitz charms.

    28. An absorbent faucet drip catcher because you're over the after-dinner ritual of mopping up the small lagoon that forms behind your sink every time you do dishes.

    29. A cordless vacuum so lightweight and easy to maneuver that you might start to say wild things like "I like vacuuming." Speaking from firsthand experience, once you go cordless, you'll never want to go back.

    You (sleepily) realizing you need all of these time-savers:
