    Who knows how they got there? Freakin' mystery!

    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!" β€”Veronica Glustein

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.

    4. A cutting board that grips onto the table so you don't accidentally send it flying.

    Promising Review: "I've been cooking and chopping my entire adult life. This is without a doubt the best cutting mat I have ever used. It's flexible, but still strong enough to stand up on its own in my narrow storage cabinet. Knife cuts are nonexistent, and although I've used this mat exclusively since it arrived, it still looks brand new! It stays put when you're chopping β€” no slipping and sliding on the counter." β€”Tara

    Get it from Amazon for $15+. (Available in small or large and in a variety of colors.)

    5. A pair of eyeliner stencils so you can finally have a straight freakin' line and not an everywhere-but-your-eyelid line.

    Promising Review: "It's made from a thin plastic material. I like that it's thin because it conforms to my face very well and the lines it helps you create are straight! This is perfect for someone wanting to branch out more with their eye makeup. I know I need help with my lines." β€”Monica

    Get them from Amazon for $5.

    6. A hot air brush because messy hair, you *want* to care.,

    Get one for $8 or a set of two from Amazon for $11+ (available in plastic or acrylic, and in a variety of color options).
