    1. A bamboo burner cover that doubles as a cutting board and will grant you loads of additional counter space for years to come.

    3. A stain-busting Wet and Forget exterior spray so you can clean *and* prevent mold and algae build-up with minimal effort. Just dilute the formula and spray down virtually any surface — no additional rinsing required!

    4. A set of two vinyl furniture scratch guards if your pet just doesn't seem to grasp that the furniture is not their toy.

    5. A durable coffee pod storage drawer you can slip under your coffee pot or Keurig to keep all those K-Cups, sugar packets, and creamers in one convenient location.

    6. An outlet shelf because your itty-bitty bathroom counter doesn't have space for even one more toothbrush. It's also great for managing cords and charging your phone when the nearest table is lightyears away from the nearest outlet.

    7. A silicone facial-cleansing pad for gently removing dead skin, dirt, and grime without irritating sensitive skin while giving your face a nice little massage at the same time.

    8. A Velcro storage wall that sticks right to the side of your car's cargo to keep all your literal junk in the trunk from rolling around while you drive.

    9. This super-cool faux-book display made out of reclaimed materials that's sneakily hollowed out so you can transform eyesores into bookish home decor.

    10. A pair of beaded fan pull extenders if you're over the not-so-fun game of guessing which chain is for the light and which is for the fan. Plus, these add over a foot of length to the existing pulls, so you don't have to go grab a step ladder every time you want to turn on the lights.

    11. Sleek desktop shelves to organize distracting workspace clutter so you can skip that part of the day where you dig through a stack of papers just to find your favorite pen.

    12. A pack of 50 velvet hangers that'll transform your closet full of chunky, mismatched plastic hangers into an organized oasis where the hangers are slim, matching, and fit together SO much nicer.

    13. Plus, a set of hoodie hangers because everything about a cozy sweatshirt is great except for how much of a pain they are to store. Free up drawer and shelf space with these clever hooks, and always have quick and easy access to your go-to styles.

    14. A durable honeycomb drawer for putting an end to the full-scale drawer excavation you preform every time you're looking for a specific scarf, tie, or a pair of socks.

    15. A set of five soft silicone eyeglass sleeves so you can save your ears and temples from any discomfort caused by too-tight frames.

    16. A pack of adhesive cable clips if crawling under your seat yet again to fetch another fallen charging cord is getting old.

    17. A set of light-dimming sheets to turn down the intensity on your too-bright alarm. I know these things are supposed to wake you up, but they aren't supposed to keep you up.

    18. A handy over-toilet cabinet because the single medicine cabinet in your bathroom just isn't proving spacious enough for all your toiletries and extra TP.

    19. A chrome-finish hanger stacker that'll tame the tangled beast residing in your closet, threatening to break, scratch, and snap every time you dare try to hang up a new shirt.

    20. A cascading wall organizer with six removable folders if your WFH station is drowning in papers that you're very scared you're going to lose.

    21. A set of reusable Wad-Free pads so laundry day doesn't get derailed by tangled bedsheets. These help maintain a balanced washer drum, reduce dry times, and prevent wet clothes from getting trapped in the sheets.

    22. A wall-mounted organizing rack for transforming piles of hard-to-store tools (looking at you, brooms and rakes) with five slots and six hooks that can support a whopping 35 pounds.

    23. A drain cover to ensure a better bath experience. By blocking the drain holes this gadget adds up to five inches of extra water and gets rid of that annoying gurgling noise that plagues your bathtime serenity.

    24. A nail polish organizer because you have a polish collection that rivals that of the local nail salon, and it's currently closing in on your makeup in a way that's got your blushes and brushes feeling uneasy.

    25. A mounted towel rack that'll make the most of your wall space and look great while doing it.

    26. A magnetic paper towel holder for putting that good-for-nothing empty fridge space to good use and clearing up some coveted counter space in the process.

    27. A pack of battery-powered motion-sensing LED lights so you can get the look and feel of custom lighting without the high installation costs. Get the under-cabinet lighting of your dreams, or just avoid stubbing your toe trying to walk upstairs in the dark.

    28. An absorbent faucet drip catcher to cut out the after-dinner ritual of sopping up the small lagoon that forms behind your sink every time you do dishes.

    29. An overhead storage rack if you'd like to finally be able to park your car in the garage without being impeded by eight tubs of holiday decorations.

    30. A silicone TubShroom to catch all that slimy wet hair before it sinks to drain depths unknown and causes a clog you have to call your plumber to fix.

    31. A terra-cotta sugar saver that'll turn your hard-as-rock clump of brown sugar into a soft pile of ready-to-use sweetness, and keep it that way for up to six months!

    32. 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.
