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

    2. An under-cabinet lid opener if pickle and pasta sauce jars just so happen to be your mortal, hand-cramping enemy. This makes the depressingly strenuous affair a breeze, and is great for seniors or anyone with joint or arthritic pain.

    3. A pack of biodegradable foaming drain cleaning tablets to turn the daunting task of de-clogging and de-stinking your sink into an effortless science experiment. Toss a packet in, turn on the disposal, and watch all that cleaning power bubble up to the surface.

    4. A doctor-recommended Squatty Potty so any tough "gotta go" urges go a little (or a lot) smoother thanks to this stool's natural colon-aligning prowess.

    5. 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.

    6. 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. With this, you can easily whiten your teeth anytime, anyplace, in just five minutes without any lingering pain.

    7. 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.

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.

    13. 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.

    14. Plus, a patented pet hair remover if you're tired of dragging out the vacuum or lint roller every time your pet touches anything. This lightweight roller uses bristles, not sticky tape, to catch lint, meaning you can clean and reuse it over and over and over again.

    15. A Dash rapid egg cooker to make your morning egg prep 1,000x easier. Get boiled, poached, or scrambled eggs in just a couple of minutes. And weighing in at just ONE POUND, it's perfect for small apartment kitchens, dorm rooms, or RV travel!

    29. A bottle of professional-grade callus-removing gel that'll quickly remove 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.
