    38 Useful Things For The Sloppiest Person You Know

    You're messy and you know it.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A secure bag seal with a handy little nozzle so you can stop making a mess when you're trying to dispense literally anything that comes in a bag.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.80 (available in five colors).

    2. A pack of Wine Wipes specifically created to destroy the receipts from last night's "glass" of wine.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these. They really work. They do taste bad, but they are really life-changing though. Every time I use them, I show them off to everyone I'm with. Worth every penny. Really." —Innesa

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $7.

    3. A battery-operated tap you can add to nearly any bottle or jug in your fridge so you'll literally never cry over spilled milk again!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product!! I read several questions answered on the products page saying chunky milk was getting stuck in the suction tube. I have NEVER had this problem and it’s probably because I don’t let my milk expire. The only way chunky milk is going to get stuck in the tube is if you are using expired milk — just because some milk might sit in the suction tube, as long as it is refrigerated and not expired, it will not get chunky. After every gallon of milk, I wash it with hot water and run it through the unit to thoroughly clean the unit as well as scrub the spout. I have two: One is for milk and one is for water and both bottles sit on my fridge door and don’t move until they are empty (which also eliminates messy spills or children not being able to lift the gallon). Very simple to use as well. You just put the suction tube in and pull the slip fitting cap over the jug opening and you're good to go!" —Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $6.19.

    4. A pack of pre-moistened eye-makeup correcting swabs to help fix those little mistakes you can't ever seem to avoid during your beauty routine.

    Promising review: "I am the world's messiest eye makeup applier. I make a total mess of my eyelids with mascara and these little pre-moistened jewels erase all of the mess quickly and I'm on my way. I absolutely love them, they do not leave any fibers behind like a cotton swab does. I truly cannot live without them, so I hope they don't ever stop making them." —Jody Akimoto

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $3.90.

    5. A tri-fold organizational wallet that'll hold everything you own, because your purse should not be a black hole of despair — like it currently is.

    Promising review: "It's very cute but so functional! It fits everything in a very streamlined form, so you don't look messy or look like an easy target when you're traveling. I love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 35 colors).

    6. A set of drawer storage boxes to make the dig for your underwear or socks each morning a little less traumatic.

    Promising review: "I love these organizers. As soon as they came in, I opened the box and put them to use. I can't believe I waited so long to get something like this. I consolidated two messy sock drawers into one. I like the zipper on the bottom so they are collapsible. I got these in brown so they match my espresso furniture." —Jessica

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $13.87 (available in gray and brown).

    7. A foldable two-pocket hamper so you can hide and separate your dirty-ass laundry (and not just have it in a pile on the floor in your bathroom).

    Promising review: "My utility room was so unorganized and messy and now it looks great. Now I have a clean place for my clothes and my husband's clothes. I love it." —Sandra W.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.96 (available in black, brown, cream, and gray).

    8. A pack of Shout Wipes for when you inevitably spill something on your white shirt. Why are you even still trying to wear white shirts?

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $6.28.

    9. An over-the-sink cutting board and strainer, because how many times have you made a damn mess when you were trying to chop literally anything?

    Promising review: "This is an extremely useful cutting board with the collapsible bowl for washing vegetables and/or fruits, draining them, or depositing scraps. It fits nicely over my sink and is easily cleaned and stored. Find myself using it every day!" —Patty Boh

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in green and red).

    10. A washable nylon makeup and hair protector so your face doesn't end up on your collar. Again.

    Promising review: "I use it whenever I am wearing something with a fitted neck. Keeps the shirt clean, no makeup stains. I also try to remember to take it with me when I go shopping, to keep the neck on my shirt clean and the store merchandise." —Grandma Ruth

    Get it from Amazon for $4.55+ (available in white and beige).

    11. A pair of stain-resistant, super-comfy microfiber sheets that'll have you sleeping in the lap of luxury and not in accidentally multicolored linens.,

    Promising review: "These are by far the best sheets I have ever bought! Super soft and cozy! Not really thick, or crisp which some people like. I am more than pleased and will buy another set of us, and for my son." —Mary

    Get the four-piece set from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in sizes twin-California king and in 39 colors).

    12. A set of nonstick oven liners — since the reason your smoke alarm is always going off is because of the caked-on mess living at the bottom of your oven.

    Promising review: "I expected to be happy, but I'm thrilled! Each mat is pliable and fits the entire width of my standard oven. When the mat is against the back wall, it extends up to but not over the front lip of the floor. On first use, pizza cheese and sauce dripped onto the front edge of the mat and onto that uncovered lip. The baked-on cheese and sauce slid right off the mat! Effortlessly! After I cleaned up the lip, I layered a second mat to cover the lip. These mats are so great that I almost want food to drip on them so I can show off how wonderful they are." —Artset Outset

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $16.95.

    13. A very handy Tile Mate keychain that'll help you find your keys, because you lost them...again! In fact, where are your keys right now?

    Promising review: "I purchased a set of four and have one on my keys, spare keys, wallet, and a mischievous cat's collar. This product has been extremely reliable for finding the things that I constantly misplace around the house. And now the cat can easily be found hiding in a shrub, thanks to his musical collar accessory. On one occasion he had even left our yard but by walking around the block, the app let me know when he was close by and I was able to ring the tile and find him. This product has kept me from being late on many mornings and from stressing over potentially lost items and a pet. I purchased another set as a gift!" —Hemt

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    14. An eyeshadow shield so your makeup goes on the top part of your eyes, where it's supposed to — not the bottom.

    Promising review: "These are my little under-eye lifesavers! I love eyeshadow but used to be afraid of bright colors or sparkles because of fallout. Now that I use these, I am free to use any and all of my eye makeup without the fear of ruining my foundation. I really like to do my face first and my eyes last; I tend to have trouble applying my foundation around my eye makeup due to my klutziness. It's like the harder I try, the more I fail, so being able to be a bit messy frees me up and these little fallout catchers do the trick. I can make a single shield last for multiple applications by only using the two corner adhesives first for a while until they lose stickiness, and then I move to the center adhesive strip until that loses stickiness. I use one shield under both eyes and can usually get six to seven applications out of it. A good week's worth of eye makeup with one shield...I am sold." —Manic Maenad

    Get a 30-pack from Amazon for $8.95.

    15. A box of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers so you can finally, FINALLY clean out your microwave!!! (A parade will be held in your honor at a later date.)

    Promising review: "I have a teeny tiny toddler who constantly makes messes. I generally pick one day a week to deep clean and I will use the entire thing up. I start with wiping down the walls in my living room (crayon or pens marks) then wipe down my son's big toys, then I will wipe down the cabinet doors in the kitchen, and wipe down the windows and bookshelves. I finish by scrubbing down the shower and by the time I clean the toilet it's used up and ready to be thrown away." —MichiokoXIII

    Get a box of four from Amazon for $4.97.

    16. A multi-compartment trunk organizer designed with enough space to hold all those things that normally roll around your trunk.

    Promising review: "Five stars! I am so glad to have found this. My daughter and I share a car. She's messy. I'm not. I really dislike having things roll around in my trunk when I'm driving. This Trunkcratepro has solved our differences and kept me sane. It is exactly what the seller advertised." —Flightnurse

    Get it from Amazon for $39.87 (available in black, blue, gray, and red).

    17. A beer sippy cup, because Corona ads never talk about the sand violence that plagues beers on beaches.

    Promising review: "Definitely plastic and very lightweight, but it will hold your booze and that's all that matters, right?" —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. Or if you're more of a wine connoisseur, a set of wine sippy cups, because pouring some out for the homies, intentional or not, is totally overrated.

    Promising review: "It's a grown-up sippy cup! I bought these for all my wine-loving friends and family, including myself. We attend a lot of wine festivals and these are perfect. They keep the wine cold and are very easy to sip from. A little too easy sometimes, lol. I also use mine on overnight scrapbooking trips. They're great for outdoor parties too, to keep the bugs out and reduce spilling. I highly recommend these to anyone that drinks wine outside of a restaurant or dining room. (I bought the beer ones for my beer-drinking friends too.) Great gift!!!" —Jennifer L. Hyatt

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 11 color combos).

    19. A bottle of Downey Wrinkle Release Spray to help you look like you didn't just roll out of bed — also, please tuck in your shirt!

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for my 24-year-old son who seems to be allergic to an iron. It does take wrinkles out of almost every shirt he owns. Flannels, not so much, and many of his pants get by with this. Heavier work pants, full cotton type will still need an iron, but overall, I love it." —Jennifer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.94.

    20. And if you wanna get real fancy, a handheld steamer so you can care for your clothes like a grown-ass adult.

    Promising review: "I use this almost every day to steam shirts. I fill it with water every morning and brush my teeth while it heats up. I've had it about a year and just use tap water with it. If you let it properly heat up (two to five minutes), it produces quite a bit of steam. It works really well to take the wrinkles out of pressed shirts that were hanging in the closet. It's very sturdy. The head is heavy and made of high-quality plastic. It can easily survive drops off the bathroom counter and being tossed in a drawer. After everyday use it shows no signs of wear. It still heats up as fast as it did when new and produces as much steam." —Stephen Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    21. An organizer hanger, because it's about time you gave all your tank tops a home that isn't in the giant pile of clothes you have on that chair in the corner.

    Promising review: "Perfect for all my tanks. I also have one for my swimsuits to hang dry on and another to hold my bras as I'm trying to get away from using drawers." —Tascha Farnsworth

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. A copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up that'll seriously help you declutter your home and your life.

    Promising review: "I am a slob trapped in a prison of clutter for every pathetic reason out there and this is what has finally made enough sense for ME to start letting go. Three bags of crap freed and ready for more. I already feel happier!" —Angelica M. Rodriguez

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

    23. A pair of no-tie shoelaces so you can stop all those random gravity checks.

    Promising review: "Fit great. They make gym, errands, and dog walking easy and safer. No tripping over untied laces!" —KD

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 44 colors).

    24. A set of makeup-brush scrubbers, because your brushes really don't need to fall victim to your sloppy ways too.

    Promising review: "Great for cleaning any and all brushes! I have a variety of brushes from different companies (bareMinerals, Avon, Mary Kay, Ecotools, E.l.f., Lamora, Elizabeth Mott) and these silicone brush cleaners work so well to get a good deep clean. It cleaned off one of my brushes I thought I would have to get rid off. I used the brush for body paint and the paint was really stuck in that brush, but after getting a good scrubbing with these all the paint came out." —Ashleigh C.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $4.99.

    25. A wired Logitech keyboard you can literally wash. Goodbye, piles of crumbs that were calling your keyboard home!!!!

    Promising review: "I AM MESSY! I love this keyboard. I use this keyboard for typing documents and gaming. Very solid. It does not get junky like other standard keyboards." —Mimi

    Get it on Amazon for $55.44.

    26. A pack of bra clips, because do your bra straps hang low? Do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them in bow? Well, then you need these.

    Promising review: "I am really glad I bought these because my bra straps are always falling down unless I am wearing a razor back bra. These will make any bra into a razorback type bra. I did struggle with these at first trying to figure out the best way to get them and my bra on. I do it higher towards my neck and then carefully slide it down where I want it. You have to be careful that your straps down twist as you do it so they lay flat. I got the hang of it after a few tries. To take them off. I reached back to unclasp my bra first and then removed the clip. I only wished I knew about these sooner. I love not having to mess around with my bra straps falling down all the time." —Linda W

    Get a nine-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    27. A pack of ultra-sanitizing Purell Wipes to keep you clean and germ-free — I know, what a concept!

    Promising review: "Like the portability of this item, as well as the size and texture of the sheets. They come out easily when dispensing them. The small size of the travel pack is perfect for my car's console. Handy to have in the car whether for unexpected cleanups or for cleaning my hands and steering wheel after filling the car with gas. Not highly fragranced, which is a big plus. Also, it does not seem to dry my hands out like some products do." —WalkToRun

    Get six packs of 20 wipes from Amazon for $9.98.

    28. A reusable deodorant-removing sponge, because we get it. You wear deodorant.

    Promising review: "My husband is the one that needed this. I keep it on hand for when we are about to leave and those white streaks appear." —MBV31

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    29. A totally amazing eyeliner stamp that'll give you — yes, even you! — a perfect winged eyeliner every time.

    Promising review: "This is a game-changer! I have always been terrible with just plain eyeliner so cat eyes were out of the question. I had tried so many times and always failed. Until now! These stamps are genius and so simple. I was VERY skeptical and figured it would be another waste of money, but I was so wrong. I got it right on both eyes the first time and loved it! The pen part of the eyeliner is fantastic as well. I usually use a liquid liner and have to use a ton of Q-tips to clean it up after applying but I barely had to clean up anything with this pen. It went on smoothly and easily. I highly recommend this product to anyone!" —Sarah Beth Stephenson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.34.

    30. An adorable mini vacuum to help you get rid of all those crumbs that are somehow in your bed.

    Promising review: ""Best decision ever! I like eating in bed sometimes, (popcorn while watching a movie, etc.), but HATE crumbs. This was the perfect solution for that!" —Veronica Glustein

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three designs).

    31. A leak-proof car organizer and trash can, because you're not a 16-year-old girl driving a Jetta around anymore — or maybe you are, but either way, it's not acceptable to have your car looking like a dumpster.

    Promising review: "No more bag hanging in the face of the person sitting in the rear seat. It sits nicely on the floor, holds tissues or a box of paper towels. I also fit wipes on either side mesh pouches. Love it." —Stacey

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    32. A set of silicone gap covers to stop all your crumbies from forming a small community in the crevices around your house.,

    Promising review: "Great product. We just remodeled our kitchen and these are just what I was looking for to keep the food from making a mess between the stove. Love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.95 (available in 21, 22, and 25 inches and in white, translucent white, black, and clear).

    33. A four-pocket door hanging organizer that'll help you and your kiddos stay organized — well, as organized as possible.

    Promising review: "Very helpful if you are a terribly messy person like me. I don't have any kids, I just need space for all my things. So, yay!" —Juanita Suber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88+ (available in six colors).

    34. A sturdy steel hair-tool organizer so you can really make the most out of your under-sink space.

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, kept things organized and separated, and it looks nice. It fits two of my blow dryers, a flat iron, and curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well (just use the twisties it came with to secure them in place but the basket fit perfectly in my cabinet). Worth the buy. :)" —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven colors).

    35. A pair of washable microfiber slippers to help you sweep up the mess you just made, without actually having to do any real work.

    Promising review: "If you have hardwood or tile floors, you have gotta have at least five pairs of these houseshoes. I just toss them into the wash without tearing off the sole to wash separately. They help control dust and animal hair. I like them." —Penny

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90 (available in sizes 6-11 and in four colors).

    36. A clear makeup organizer so you can neatly arrange your vanity and not have foundation leaking out everywhere.

    Promising review: "Love it! Organized my once messy vanity desk to perfection! The drawers were pretty long and fit all my liquid lipsticks, eyeliners, and mascaras vertically! You can't go wrong for the price — it's awesome and I would recommend." —Lenka C.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    37. A pack of reusable nonstick burner covers that'll make cleaning your stove top so freakin' easy you might start cleaning it for fun!

    Promising review: "My stove is very dirty after cooking. After using this burner cover, I don’t need to worry about cleaning the stove. This protector is so easy to take off and clean. It will make my stove clean forever. It saves me a lot of time. I love it." —TK

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.99.

    38. And a comfy armchair designed with a hidden storage space, because we all have that chair — that chair that acts as a storage facility for all our stuff — so why not get a chair specifically designed for it?

    Promising review: "I adore these chairs! The storage space is an added bonus and very spacious. They look very nice and are comfortable enough to do a little reading or sitting around talking with friends. We placed them in our kitchen nook instead of adding another table to eat at (we have a dining room). Everyone has commented on how nice they look." —MammaB

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.
