    32 Time-Saving Products To Help You Get The Most Out Of Your Day

    A Dash egg cooker costs $17, but the time you'll save every morning is ~priceless~.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    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.

    This unit comes with three interchangeable chopping blades, three grater blades, and two slicer blades. It also comes with holding containers to house all the blades, a cleaning fork, and a safety holder.

    Promising review: "I have arthritis so slicing and chopping have become so painful for me. This device made short work of all the chopping for our Thanksgiving dressing. I read the directions and watched a couple of YouTube videos to get a clear understanding of how the chopper works and how to best prepare onions, celery, etc. for chopping. I finished all the chopping in record time, and my hands were pain free. This device gives me uniform dices — something a food processor can't do." —Charis

    2. 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.

    I hate wrinkles *and* am lazy — two at-odds conditions. This stuff has been a staple in my life since approximately ninth grade (thanks to my mama). As a former Catholic school uniform wearer, this stuff was VITAL to freshening up wrinkly dress shirts that spent the after-school hours stuffed in a gym bag. The scent is light and fresh, and its wrinkle-releasing powers are nearly instant. It definitely works better on some fabrics than others (great on cotton, less great on some synthetics), but it'll improve the look of most without dealing with an iron or steamer.

    3. 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.

    Promising review: "I have been having shower draining issues, so there was a buildup of soap scum in my shower. I have a very weak stomach and cleaning the shower makes me physically ill. I have tried several products that have claimed to be no scrub/wipe but this has been the only one that has worked. I sprayed it after my shower and left it to sit until the next night. Found that A LOT of the grime had disappeared. Now, was it perfect? No. But I think with consistent use it will get there. Highly recommend this product." —KZ

    4. A detangling kids leave-in conditioner to tame frizz, hydrate curls, reduce breakage, and just generally decrease the amount of time spent fussing over your kid's hair — something you'll both be grateful for.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff so much!! My son has tight ringlet Victorian style curls naturally and it was getting frizzy and broken so I found this spray and his hair is the healthiest it’s ever been! I spray some in and put his hair in a silk cap and it is so shiny and soft and his curls have all recovered and the smell is amazing! I’ve recommended it to everyone in my family and I started using it too because it works better than my adult leave-in!" —Amber

    5. Plus, a beloved-by-the-internet detangling brush because fighting through knotted hair isn't just painful, it's time consuming! Time to upgrade to something that will glide through your kinky-curly locks and treat them with the respect they deserve.

    Promising review: "I purchased this brush three weeks ago and have used it every day. I like the brush so much I ordered three more for my adult daughters. Not only is the brush gentle on my gray hair, but it also feels like I am giving myself a head massage. Also, I appreciate the wide hand base design. I have rheumatoid arthritis and it is not always easy to grip an ordinary hairbrush. Plus, the brush is easy to clean. It truly glides through my wet hair." —ANS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in six colors).

    6. A lemon-scented cleaning gel if spending hours wiping out keyboards, air conditioning vents, and car cupholders is not your idea of a good time. Just plop this gooey godsend on whatever needs cleaning and watch as it oh so satisfyingly lifts dirt and dust in a snap.

    Promising review: "I purchased this product to clean those little spaces in my car filled with random crumbs from my husband and dog hair and it works amazing. Picked up everything and didn’t leave a residue. The lemon scent was faint and didn’t overpower the vehicle while I was cleaning it. But this definitely got in all the little nooks and crannies." —Kimberly

    7. A Dash rapid egg cooker that'll 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!

    Promising review: "Where has this gadget been all my life?! I love to cook but I always find boiling water for eggs to be annoying. It's very easy to use and the eggs come out perfect! You just pick how you want to make your eggs, fill the cup with water to the appropriate line, pierce the egg, cover it, and turn on. All in all, it's a great product and I’m happy with this purchase." —Death2Barbie

    Each stamp lasts for around 12 days! 

    Promising review: "I love these 'stamps'. They keep your toilet clean and make the entire bathroom smell fantastic, clean, and deodorized at all times. They are very easy to use, don't over-complicate the instructions. I did, thinking there had to be more to it than that. You just stick it on the inside of the toilet and it will stay in place and clean the toilet each time it is flushed. I love these!" —J. D. Robinson

    9. A pair of breathable slip-on sneakers with memory foam soles for getting out the door as quickly and as comfortably as possible.

    Some reviewers say these shoes run big, and recommend ordering a size down.

    Promising review: "I love these slip-ons! They are extremely comfortable and stretchy. No need to 'break them in' and they didn't irritate my heels after long-time wear like Vans slip-ons do — no need for bandages :). I will definitely be buying these again and again!" —MichelleAColgan

    Promising review: "Changed my life. Helps remind me of what we’re missing in the house and helps keep me on track while shopping and restocking the house." —Jasmine Miranda-Ferrari

    12. A quick reference magnetic air fryer cheat sheet if you're tired of researching cook times on your phone when your stomach is growling and all you want is to be eating your Trader Joe's potstickers.

    The set comes with two different-sized magnets.

    Promising review: "I thought it over a few times then I bought these so I could have a quick reference handy for those times I wanted to make something in my air fryer, which is quite a bit. What surprised me is how often I refer to it. I just throw something in my air fryer glance at the section that lists the item I’m cooking. Press a few buttons on my fryer and I’m in business. No more having to search on my phone with wet fingers. A frivolous buy that turned out to be worthwhile." —PickyExtra

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29+ (also available in black).

    13. An auto shut-off mug warmer that'll keep your coffee and tea at the *perfect* drinking temperature without resorting to a disruptive microwave run every 10 minutes. 

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with this product. I'm using a non-flat bottom mug with the temp usually set to max and, unless I have a fan blowing on it, it stays hot. Not lukewarm, but actually hot. It makes a loud noise, but TBH I don't really care. I've tried a bunch in the past simply for the potential of not having to dump my coffee or nuke it every 15 minutes. It actually did as promised, and has improved daily life, as I love my coffee. The light that tells you it's still hot is also very helpful. I'll be buying two to three of these just to have backups." —charlie page

    Get it from Amazon for $23.29+ (available in seven styles).

    14. A drawer divider set so you can skip the part of the morning where you make yourself late digging for that perfect pair of socks.

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $15.97 (available in seven colors).

    15. A microfiber EasyWring spin mop with a hands-free wringer for a quicker, easier clean. If that wasn't exciting enough, this mop is designed to get into tight corners *and* is made with microfiber fabric that is machine washable and able to trap dirt with just plain ole water — no chemical cleaners needed.

    Promising review: "Let me first say I HATE washing the floor with a regular mop. However, this is FANTASTIC. Not only does it do a great job, but the floors (both wood, and tiles) look great. Have been raving about this product since I first used it. No more do I hate washing floors, no more wringing out mop heads by hand. Ugh, this is wonderful. Put the mop head in spinner, spin it dry and just mop. No way could there be an easier and efficient way to clean my floors. Thanks O-Cedar!" —diane

    Promising review: "Does your little one thrash about on the bathroom floor like a cat in a tub when you try to assist with washing their hands? Fear no more! A request for hygiene-related independence can be satiated with this simple, travel-friendly device. Wash ya own hands without Mommy or Daddy's help just like the character in your favorite potty book!" —Rissa

    18. An elevated pet food bowl if your pet also happens to be a messy eater. This feeder contains messes by collecting stray kibble in the top tray and spilled water in the bottom basin, so you're not stuck cleaning up their mess after every meal. 

    Promising review: "My two cats always had a habit of playing with their water bowls and spilling water everywhere. I hated cleaning it up constantly. I was looking for a solution when I came across the Neater Feeder and thought it was a great idea. It is small but it's the perfect size for both my cats. Not only did this product look super nice when I set it up it actually worked!! All of the water got trapped on the bottom and the food was trapped on the top as well. Made clean up so much easier. I am so happy with this product and highly recommend." —Kelli Palen

    19. A seven-day pill organizer with a.m. and p.m. compartments that'll help you stay on track with all your daily medications and supplements without counting and recounting pills to see if you missed a dose.

    Promising review: "I am so thrilled that I found this. All of the ones sold in the stores don’t stay closed. This pill organizer has plenty of room in each compartment and it's very sturdy. I'm more than happy with the pull organizer. 👍" —Jaqui

    20. 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.

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow-dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, nondamaged look." —SAHM2011
