10. A water-resistant windshield cover to make unbearable cold mornings just a little easier.

It works fabulously! It's easy to put on, easy to take off, and no ice on the windshield! I can unplug my car, let it warm up for a few minutes, and then I'm off! I highly recommend this if you have to park outside for any reason." —Karen UGet it from Amazon for $19.59+ (available in standard and extra sizes and in black, red, purple, and blue).

Promising review: "People!! These are nothing short of a miracle. The left pic is one week post-pedicure. ONE WEEK! I found these toe socks and was skeptical — but desperate. So I got them. The pic on the left is my foot right before bed. The pic on the right is literally seven hours later when I woke up. I rubbed some lotion on, put the sleeves on, and went to bed. If they help this much after just seven hours, I can't wait to see my feet in a week!! Size wise — I wear a size 11 shoe and have pretty wide feet and they didn't feel tight or uncomfortable at all. Don't hesitate, if these things can help my feet they can help anyone's!" —olymo
