    1. A pack of bedsheet suspenders so you can finally keep those pesky bed corners covered.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are definitely worth the price. My significant other and I apparently run marathons in our sleep, so the fitted sheet and mattress pad came off the bed without fail. We own a double pillow-top mattress and they haven't stretched out while holding a fitted sheet, (that shrunk in the wash), plus two mattress pads. They hold them firmly to the bed with no slipping. No damage has been done to the sheets, either." —Michelle

    2. An all-in-one Hang-O-Matic picture hanging tool so anything you decide to put on your walls is totally level — and you don't have to do the walk of shame back to your walls to drill a second set of holes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "While hanging shelves and frames and other wall decorations shouldn't be rocket science, I make things more complicated than they should be. Leveling is where I normally falter. With the Hang-O-Matic it becomes an exact science! It's so simple to use! I've hung over 10 items on our walls this past weekend and it was a breeze with this tool. Just measure, put the tape to the wall where you want it, ensure your tape is level, and then push the marker pins in to know where you need to put in your anchors/hooks. When you're doing it solo, this tool is absolutely priceless!" —Shameel Kumar

    3. A far-reaching dryer vent lint brush that'll get deep in there to scoop out all the gross debris that clogs up your vents.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Why didn’t I know about this sooner?! A must-have for anyone annoyed at the amount of dryer lint left behind when you pull out the lint catcher. Now I can get it all. Note: you’ll probably need to vacuum more after cleaning it out." —Interpreter

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.95.

    4. A very handy bottle of Wine Away red wine stain remover, because maybe the conversation got a little too heated after that second glass.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST!!! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought 5 bottles just in case. We didn't need the 5 bottles, but someone did spill red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. Not just took most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" —Alial

    Get it from Amazon for $10.09.

    5. A reusable ChomChom Roller Dog Hair Remover that'll seriously get rid of that unintentional fur pillow/blanket/sofa you have with just a few rolls. And before you ask, it doesn't use sticky tape! It's made using a sturdy brush system.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If I could give this product 6 stars, I would. My husband and I use it almost every day. We have three furry dogs and six fluffy cats, which makes for A LOT of hair. We were using a lint roller before we bought our ChomChom Roller. The lint roller didn't work very well and had to be replaced. We have had our ChomChom Roller for months and it still works just as well as it did when we first got it. We can actually invite our friends over now without worrying about all the pet hair." —Morgan Willis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    6. A very handy Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set filled with so much useful information — like cooking times and liquid ratios — you can make your favorite Instant Pot recipes even easier than before.

    The Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am so happy that I decided to give this product a try! What an amazing idea. I placed the smaller magnet right on the Instant Pot and use it daily for a quick reference. Instead of searching the cookbook or internet, I can just glance over and know in an instant how to program my IP for that particular product." —Olesya R

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A jar of 100% natural Oven Scrub, it'll really get at the buildup in your enamel ovens, rack, and even the glass panel on the door — it's made in small batches, and totally safe for your family, pets, and home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bracket is awesome and was extremely easy to install. We were able to hang curtains over our vertical blinds in just a few minutes and didn't even need any tools. Great product!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.95 (also available in brown).

    9. A jigsaw puzzle roll mat so you can work on a puzzle without having it take over their entire kitchen table.

    Instagram: @elenagarcia

    Promising review: "I didn't even know these were a thing! But I love it! I got this for my grandmother who does puzzles constantly. She lays out the mat and is able to switch between different puzzles if one is too hard or she wants to bring it over to one of our houses to work on while she's here. It's easy to use and has really come in handy. Great gift idea for any puzzle lover!" —Thomas D.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A pack of Glandex Dog Wipes designed specifically (and gently enough) to help clean and deodorize your pet's anal glands — and if you have a furry friend with a stinky (and leaking) anal gland you know exactly how great these could be!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog has gotten so used to me using these she now just stands there and waits for me to wipe her behind. I no longer have those mysterious beige stains on my white bedding!" —Amy Morgan

    Get a pack from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in packs of 24, 75, and 100). They also make a soft chew designed to help with anal gland issues.

    11. A simple to install TV wall mount that doesn't require any studs for installations — well besides you of course.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is extremely easy to install yourself on almost any type of wall because it distributes the weight so well. It works on drywall or plaster. I double checked the position by sliding the provided level across the wall and started by putting one nail in the center and then carefully at one end using the level. Once I was sure it was level, I carefully put in a half dozen more. You don’t need to use all of the nails provided! After I hung the TV I realized that one side seemed a little higher than the other and I took the TV off and realized I just needed to make sure the screws on the back of the TV were positioned properly." —Venona

    Get it from Amazon for $22.64+ (available for TVs 18"-55").

    12. A genius Pop Up Pet Door that you secure between your wall and sliding door to create a passageway for your furry friends while keeping the heat, cold, bugs, whatever where it's supposed to be.

    Pop Up Pet Door on Etsy

    Pop Up Pet Door is a Carlsbad, California-based Etsy shop specializing in easy to install pet doors.

    Get it from Pop Up Pet Door on Etsy for $69.99+ (available in three sizes).

    13. A bottle of Ambi Skincare Fade Cream, made with hydroquinone, vitamin E, and alpha hydroxy acid to gradually fade dark spots — plus it has SPF to help prevent dark spots from getting darker.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have purchased this product over eight times. I love it!!! I noticed results after about two weeks of putting it on once a day. Every time I get a new pimple, I put this on after the pimple heals and it gets rid of the scar. I use it on my face, arms, back, and chest. Recently I started using it on my bikini area as well to get rid of ingrown hair scars. I recommend this product to everyone I know who has acne scars." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    14. A bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray which can be used to help clear up the fogginess your glasses experience when you're wearing a mask — I actually use this, and it works pretty well. The key is to make sure and gently rub it in with a lens cloth. From my experience, it doesn't stop your glasses from fogging but rather it makes the fog disappear SUPER quickly. You do have to use it every day and it's not 100% but it's WAY better than just going out there with nothing.

    A customer review photo of them holding a bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray next to their masked and glasses wearing face
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I think I let the name hype up my expectations. I was expecting no fog at all. Afterthought, I’m not sure if that would ever be completely possible. Instead with this spray applied my glasses will fog up and instantly clear up — the fog does not linger on my lenses. I’ve been using it at work and it works out I can still see the fog literally moves across my lenses and clears up. After using this spray for a few days I’m completely satisfied. I will say I work 12-hour shifts and I have to apply this spray twice throughout my shift, usually at the 10 hr mark. I do really like this spray." —JSnyder

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in three sizes).

    15. A bottle of Mavala Stop — a handy little formula that's bitter but totally harmless, so every time you put your hands in your mouth it tastes so bad that you won't want to do it again!

    A customer review photo showing before and after using Mavala Stop
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years — my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can't describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on — I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. :-) But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit. Photos are before and two weeks after using this product. I know they aren't long and beautiful yet but they are beautiful to me :-) and the longest they have ever been in my life!" —Laurie S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    16. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes designed to help give your leafy green friends the yummy nutrients they need (for up to two months) — and since now you'll have a plant that doesn't die the second it comes into your home, you'll need to keep buying these nutritious little sticks.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Must have for all houseplants! It's the best plant food! I use these for all of my houseplants — I have around 30 or so. Super easy to use and works perfectly for all my plants. Definitely worth the buy!" —Kala Haley

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $2.99.

    17. A guided gallery wall kit that includes everything you need to create one — including seven frames, a hanging template, hardware, and even some pretty black-and-white prints that you can use or replace.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this set! It was delivered quickly, all of the frames and glass came in perfect condition. My favorite part of the entire thing was the guide it came with. After putting the pictures in the frames, I hung the guide, made sure it was level, and drilled the holes right into the paper. Everything came out level, the frames and pictures look great. Definitely happy with this purchase." —Cristina C Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $42.49+ (available in three finishes).

    18. A set of Washer and Dryer Bed Sheet Detanglers so you can finally get your bedding clean without creating a giant knot of fabric that's still a little dirty, wet, and totally wrinkly.

    The Grommet

    Promising review: "We have a king-sized bed and every time I washed the sheets it was a process. Put them in the washer, then untangle them before the dryer. Stop the dryer a couple of times to do the same or you have damp spots or trapped wet pillowcases. This little gadget eliminates all that. Love that I can wash my sheets like regular laundry!" —Lianne


    Get a pack of two from The Grommet for $18.95.

    19. A set of hoodie hangers! Yes, there is a hanger out there specifically for your favorite hoodie (I guess once in a while you actually do take it off). It clips onto your closet rod and gives you instant access to your hoodie.

    Venalli Builds on Etsy

    Each hoodie hanger comes with a removable clip that allows you to lock the hoodie hangar onto smaller diameter rods or wire shelving.

    20. An adjustable back stretcher and lumbar support device capable of providing you with some serious relief from your back pain. It works by helping you get a safe and gentle back stretch through one of its four settings.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This device is incredible. I have a bulging disc and braces, and other types of back stretching never quite got it right for my lower lumbar region. I also have a shifted tailbone from the same injury and my back pain has subsided substantially after just a week of use for 10 minutes a day. I've even cut down on my intake of OTC pain relievers and noticed I've been sleeping better as well. It was difficult to get it set up, but with elbow grease and patience it worked out alright." —Kevin Newcomb

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A versatile Katzco Furniture Repair Kit complete with six wood markers and six wax sticks all designed to match whatever wood your need fixed.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Despite our consistent efforts, it took almost a year to teach our new dog to not jump up on the back door. And as you can see in the first picture, he managed to do a lot of scratching. That's why I bought this marker kit, to repair those scratches. I used 'oak,' a lighter color, on the scratches. I did have to go over them again to completely cover them. That's what you see in the second picture, and it took me about 10 minutes total. I bought the kit with the wax crayons as I hoped to fill in the scratches too, I read in another review that it's possible but takes a lot of work. Unless I'm looking for the defects, I no longer notice the scratches (and mind you, these are at eye level) so this did the job I wanted." —P. Ratliff

    Get a set of 13 markers and wax sticks from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A handy heat-resistant chopper to finally break up that package of ground meat, allowing it to cook evenly.

    amazon.com

    Non-stick and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing this same tool from Pampered Chef but it's so pricey I didn't want to take the plunge. When I found this one on Amazon and saw how much more reasonably priced it was, I decided to go for it. I've used it a few times since purchasing and it is awesome! Works just as well as I envisioned the pricier version to work and I love that it didn't cost an arm and a leg. I am happy that this comes in red as it matches the other kitchen tools and theme of my kitchen! Thanks for making cooking with ground meat so much simpler." —Genetics

    Get it from Amazon for $6.94+ (available in three colors).

    23. A pack of bra strap clips to hold everything in place and stop you from doing the grab for your sliding straps every 20 seconds. As we get into the warmer months, these are especially great for any tank tops!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in six options).

    24. A heat-resistant silicone holster perfect for holding your hot styling tools so you aren't stuck trying to find a spot to place them down — it's also designed with a patented cling technology that allows it to be repositioned and applied to any clean, smooth, and dry surface.

    Heat-resistant up to 500 degrees, plus it's dishwasher-safe...if you ever needed to wash it!

    Promising review: "After coming home from a long day at work and seeing that my wife left the hair straightener on while rushing to work — this plastic, magnificent thing probably prevented a fire in our apartment. Even though it was very hot, nothing burned! Not even the plastic holder itself! It does what it's supposed to do. It sticks to its surface and prevents fires from hair straighteners — proved it after sticking to the sink for over three months and not melting with a turned-on hair straightener from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. inside." —Emre

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    25. A terra-cotta bear you simply place in water for 20 minutes and then put in your brown sugar to help maintain its moisture for up to SIX MONTHS.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "After multiple containers and continuously having to throw my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That's when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, after a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar. Two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay! Note: it did turn any sugar that touched the bear a white color, but it tastes the same, still! :)" —Sneezeloaf

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

    26. A pack of organic and recyclable ethylene-absorbing BluApple packets to absorb the gases in your fridge that cause fruits and veggies to go bad.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "In my drunken stupor, I purchased these thinking were ben wa balls. Boy was I wrong. But I'm so happy with my purchase because these keep my produce fresher for much longer than normal. Nothing is worse than buying red bell peppers at the store and having them start wilting after four days. These should be in everyone's fridges!" —The Waites

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99.

    27. A very handy universal waterproof cellphone pouch for keeping your iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel — whatever phone you have — safe from your watery adventures this summer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This Waterproof case is amazing! I go kayaking several times a week and needed something to protect my LG G5 along the way. I have used this case on several occasions and I couldn't be happier. Make sure to place your phone in the case under dry conditions and try not to open the case during your trip. Opening the case under a hot sun after being submerged in cold water can result in condensation buildup inside the case and make the clear plastic foggy. (I discovered this after momentarily taking my phone out for a clearer picture. I don't think the condensation is enough to damage the phone but it makes it harder to see or take pictures.) If you will be using your phone for taking pictures or texting while in this case try to squeeze out the air before sealing. Leaving air in can cause air bubbles making it difficult to use the touch screen. If you won't be using your phone's touchscreen leave some air in the case before sealing so that the case will float! I would definitely recommend this case to anyone. I am very pleased with the overall quality and build!" —Uncle Crackoon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49+ (available in 14 colors).

    28. A sterling silver magnetic clasp converter that'll change the way you painfully struggle to put on your favorite bracelet or necklace.

    29. A nylon (so it's nonstick-safe) colander strainer designed with a discreet hook so it easily attaches to the side of your pot — which means you never have to struggle with emptying a heavy pan of boiling hot water again!

    The colander strainer filled with draining pasta over a pot
    Amazon

    It's also dishwasher-safe, heat-resistant up to 200 degrees C/392 degrees F, and works with fried foods.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It is quite sturdy and has no issues holding lots of ravioli, tortellini, or any other shaped pasta. One note, it does not do well with long spaghetti. It is also great for grabbing veggies out when I blanch them in water or chicken breasts I have poached. I was injured in an automobile accident and my hands are not in great condition. This has made having to use tongs for some things no longer necessary. It has also — totally — made lifting heavy pots full of liquid, unnecessary. Cooking is therapy for me and to find any tools which make it easier for me, is fantastic! I highly recommend this scoop to anyone needing a little help in the kitchen, or who just wants to not have to pull out strainers all of the time." —Kayce Cawthon McCarty

    30. A pair of heel stoppers to keep your favorite shoes from sinking into the ground.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I, unfortunately, forgot to put these on my shoes for the outdoor ceremony and pictures. My heels sank into the grass and the heels also kept getting caught on my dress which was an intricate lace. Once I was back to the bridal suite, before heading back to the reception, I put these on and they worked fabulously. Not only did they prevent my heels from sinking into the ground, but they also protected my gown from the heels catching when I walked, which had been a huge unanticipated problem. They are slightly visible, but the delicate petal shape makes them pretty and unobtrusive. I absolutely recommend these and won't hesitate to use them in the future." —npview

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four sizes).

    31. A handy little reminder that'll make sure you stay on top of feeding schedules.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was bigger than what we expected, maybe 5 to 6 inches tall, but honestly it isn't a big deal — it has solved the problem! One person can leave the house and the next person who is home knows whether or not the pooch has been fed. The sliders don't move on their own. I've included a photo so you can compare. Maybe I will get some of that removable tape and stick it to the wall, but for now it lays on a little table where we keep her treats, her feeding bowls are below it, so it worked out. Wish I would have bought this years ago!" —Shop Munki

    32. An awesome three-compartment lid organizer so you can finally, yes finally, give all your storage container lids a nice and organized home.

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this storage container. Sounds silly, but it changed my life. No longer do I have to play storage container Jenga! No more stuff falling out of the cabinet every time I open the cupboard. Now I can stack my lids in the organizer and my storage containers fit nicely on the shelf — I have a lot of storage containers. I would definitely buy this again and again. Great product!" —Laura H.

    33. A stainless-steel bottle sealer designed with a built-up pressure pump, because buying a bottle of bubbly is expensive, don't waste it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Loved this product. So easy to use. Everything is in one — no plug with pump. It stays on and keeps the bubbles in champagne and all carbonated wines. It does not pop off or leak if you lay the bottle back on its side in the refrigerator. It's metal and very strong. Love that you just need to pump the top to take out the air. Great for picnics and BYOBs. Plus it DOES NOT LEAK!" —C. Glidden

    Get the bottle sealer from Amazon for $10.49+ (available in two colors).

    34. A 5-in-1 aerator, pour, wine filter, and leak-proof bottle stopper that'll create a leak-proof seal so your favorite beverage stays fresh and in the bottle — assuming, of course, you have anything left in the bottle to store.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wouldn't consider myself a 'wine connoisseur' by any means, but I typically have a bottle or so, float through my house each week. This wine corker takes the hassle out of pulling the original cork out, it is easy to clean, makes the wine taste better, and hello it's five bucks! It would make a GREAT cheap gift for a wine drinker. At the moment, I only have the one, but I'm planning to grab a few more to keep on-hand. :)" —jason lebeda

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56 (available in two colors).

    35. An under-door draft stopper you can easily slide in or even place in windows to help seal any gaps that may allow noise (and heat) to travel through.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted something that would keep the noise out, to be honest. I live in a small NYC apartment with roommates, and have French doors. I wanted something to fit underneath that would serve specifically to reduce noise, but also not be a pain when I opened and closed the doors. It works wonderfully! It reduces the noise level from the outside, and vice versa. The talking and TV in the living room are muted, and I have been told my phone conversations are quieter! So perfect for what I needed!" —Meagan

    36. An identity theft-preventing blackout roller stamp designed to help you secure and protect your documents before you throw them out.

    Promising review: "I liked this product so much I bought another one as a gift. It works as promised, and you really cannot read what is underneath the stamp. A black permanent marker wasn't working very well and sometimes shredding takes too long. This is a great product." —Figs5

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    37. A handy little scraper tool to help you get crusty messes off your stovetop or even help peel off those sticky price tags — the ones that Home Goods thinks is smart to slap right on the glass of your new frame — without scratching anything up.

    Promising review: "This is the greatest cleaning tool invented! I love it! I had tried every tip to get rid of the hard-water buildup around my sinks and this little gizmo gets rid of it in a breeze. Everyone should have one. So simple and so brilliant." —Debra J.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    38. A roll of very handy window screen repair tape, a temporary (or not so temporary) way to repair small cuts or tears in your screen door without having to replace the whole thing.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The mesh of the tape is slightly smaller than the mesh of my windows, so it doesn't blend in. But it's better than a hole and cheaper than replacing the screen and it still lets air through, so I am very happy." —Alara

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors).

    39. A jar of clear Museum Gel — an adhesive gel designed to secure your belongings in place and protect them from any falls, it's also easily removable, reusable, and non-toxic. Plus, it won't stain or leave any marks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "A little goes a long way and it works perfectly! We needed this for southern California's earthquake-prone geography and the glass art on glass shelves. We were able to affix the gel easily and everything stays put now. You can barely see the gel through the glass shelf. The amount you need is very small so I nearly have a full container left and I was able to attach all the items shown in this picture. I could have done 10-15 sets of shelves just like this." —Dennis & Karen Gunther

    40. A simple pack of adhesive cable clips that'll finally detangle all your cords while making sure that they're easily accessible.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    42. A no-buckle stretch belt that works just like a regular belt without the bulkiness of a clasp — because sometimes your pants need a belt but your outfit really doesn't call for it.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for something like this for years! When I buy jeans I typically have to have them altered just a little. If I find a pair that fits my hips there’s always a big gap and it’s too big for my waist. Regular belts are very uncomfortable to me, they make this big pooch out to the front, and the buckle often makes holes in my shirts. This is perfect! It keeps my pants up making the fit perfect without adding more bulk to the front. I call this 'my girl suspenders!' I am definitely ordering another one and I recommend!" —Dina

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 23"-73" and in 13 colors).

    43. A double-ended extension chord, because sometimes you need two extension chords but only have one outlet to spare!

    Cords are six feet long and have three plugs each.

    Promising review: "I have no idea why these are not sold everywhere. PERFECT for my room! I ended up getting this due to my king-size bed being against a wall with only one outlet. I needed a way to connect my two lamps on my nightstand and this is absolutely, without a doubt, the very best solution to connecting my lamps and also not having all my outlets taken up. I recommend this to everyone! Also perfect for outlets connected to a switch to turn on and off both lights at the same time." —Ryan

    Promising review: "I love these!!! The part that grips on to your vent, is actually a very tough cushion that keep the weight of the Saucemote with ketchup container, from sliding down. I usually now keep one in my Jeep and a second in my purse for use when I’m in someone else’s car!" —Gillian

    45. A stackable cutlery drawer organizer so all your utensils aren't rolling around in your drawer every time you open it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these, and I’m very pleased with them. The non-slip feature on the bottom is great — you won’t have cutlery sliding around when you open and close your drawers. I would highly recommend it." —Chelsea C.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available for utensils and knives).

    46. A memory foam wedge pillow perfect for that extra padding around your knees — it might just help you get a better night's rest.

    Promising review: "It's such a relief to have this! I've been folding a pillow in half to put under my knees for my lower back pain/sciatica, and this is 100x better. I used it within 12 hours of getting it — didn't notice a smell and it was firm and full enough for me. The manufacturer does note that it takes up to 48 hours to decompress." —Xanthe

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    48. A really freakin' cool Bunch O Balloons which allows you to fill up multiple water balloons at once — the amount of time I would have saved as a kid if I had one of these! The amount of time!!!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are SO cool!! Super easy to use and fill up. Fun for hours for the kids. The worst part was clean up because there were so many. My son is begging me to get some more of these. All you do is attach the nozzle to a hose and the balloons fill up, seal off, and drop off all by themselves. No tying or trying to squeeze them over anything." —Amanda B.

    49. A pair of no-tie elastic laces designed to keep your favorite sneakers securely on without the struggle of having to lace and unlace them every time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We absolutely love these! I purchased these for my 14-year-old son because I was tired of seeing his shoes untied and dragging laces. They are perfect. They are elastic but are not flimsy. They keep a firm hold while easily stretching to get the shoe on. These are so durable that my son even wears them for PE with no flopping issues; they keep his shoes firmly fitted. Fourteen-year-old boys tend to be rough on their shoes and these laces have held up perfectly. You can't even tell they are elastic, they look like regular shoelaces. I work at a chocolate factory and learned about these from the owner and his son who both wear them day in, day out at the factory. They were impressed so I had to give them a try for my son. I would definitely buy these again." —Maria Gutierrez

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 33 colors).

    50. A genius little Aquapaw slow treat-dispensing mat so you can distract your pup while you clean 'em up — it easily sticks to any smooth service (like your shower tiles) and you just fill it with some PB.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have a 30-pound lab mix rescue who hates water. Usually, she shakes and tries to escape the bathtub. With this product, she got distracted and stayed in place. We put peanut butter in it and froze it so that it would take longer. Having the nubs helps slow her down too. It stayed in place on our tub with the suctions. Basic product but works great." —book nerd

    51. An estate planning journal that lets you get all your affairs in order in the event of...well — look, you're an adult and you have to think about this stuff.

    amazon.com

    This is not a legal will but it is designed to help you get organized so you can make one and it helps to spell out everything that your loved ones might wonder in the event of your...you know.

    Promising review: "Don’t let the title throw you (you can order the same material with a 'softer' title if you want, but why?), this book allows you to enter the information that your loved ones will need when you’re gone...and save them so much trouble at a time when they have enough grief to deal with. As an estate planning attorney, I recommend these books to ALL my clients. And remind them to keep the info up to date...to save the ones you love time, anguish, and money." —PJ

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    52. A 20 oz. water bottle designed to help you keep track of exactly how much you're drinking and make sure you're staying hydrated — just slide a colorful band up each time you finish the water in a full bottle!

    A customer review photo of them holding the bottle with the text, "Freaking killing it today, y'all."
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this water bottle. The concept of using the bands to help you keep track of how much you've drunk is GENIUS. I HATE using apps because I forget to put what I've drunk after I'm done drinking it. This is so simplistic but so great. Drink a whole bottle, sweet! Put a band on your wrist. They're cute, colorful, and comfy. If you have a lot of arm hair they might pinch and tug your arm. This bottle isn't meant to be tipped over though. It leaked a little when it would fall over with the straw, which makes sense. Duh! The straw isn't airtight to the bottle. Cute, stylish, and simplistic in its ways of keeping track of water intake. Love." —Ana T.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.78+ (available in six colors, four sizes, and two designs).

    53. A set of attachable Keepons ear hooks — they'll make sure your glasses always stay in place and don't slide down to the tip of your nose.

    Promising review: "I highly recommend these Keepons. They do exactly what they say they do: keep my glasses in place. And I love that they are totally invisible. Much better than the rubber bands I was using before. 😀 I carefully measured the legs of my glasses before purchasing these and they were the right size. I ran them under hot water to make them more pliable and it was relatively easy to put them on the legs of my glasses. I've been wearing them for almost a day and find them very comfortable now that I have adjusted them to my liking." —ScotTex

    54. A pack of light dimming stickers designed specifically to cover those constant blinking LED lights that brighten your room.

    A customer review photo of the lights on their device before and after placing the stickers
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim, I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game-changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also, the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    55. A genius and super discreet three-outlet power strip that's designed to look like your already existing plug while helping you keep the cords organized.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Did y’all know they made these?!? Okay, I was moving some furniture around in the guest room and my beautiful bride just wasn’t happy with how far the dresser stood out from the wall because of the TV plug. She said there has to be some way to fix that in this day and time. Know what? She was right! I did some searching on the old internet and found these. I put it on the outlet behind the dresser and shoved it into place. Just so y’all know, the wall plug is indeed flat and it’s designed to cover the whole plug when you use it. Please don’t ask me how thin or thick it is, cause I already put it behind the dresser and I dang shore ain’t about to pull it out to measure it for someone’s question. Just know that it’s flatter’n a bug in a windscreen and works great!" —James P.

    56. A bottle of a very handy little drywall repair putty – it'll fix all those failed attempts to hang things and get you your security deposit back.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it says. Rather than getting spackel, waiting for it to dry, sanding it down, and tweaking as needed — this cuts the time/effort down! Just rub over the place in need of patching and wipe off the excess. The hardest part is not accidentally getting the product on parts of the wall that don’t need it, but that’s easy to clean up, so it’s not a problem. I used this to patch holes in the wall from a former Wi-Fi router and modem, other than the color difference from the patch to the paint, you’d never know it was patched. Great price, easy to use." —Amanda

    57. A sturdy hand-held sharpener designed to fit and sharpen not only your knives and blades but also your kitchen scissors who could probably use a little love.

    Promising review: "Great for sharpening scissors. Purchased in December 2017 and it's still working great. Recommend watching Smith's video for this tool on Amazon. Very handy tool. I have four pairs of kitchen scissors I like to keep clean and sharp for food only. I have four pairs of scissors I use for gardening I like to keep sharp. Works great for all of them." —sandy

    58. A pack of fluorescent highlighters designed with a clear tip so you can see what you're highlighting and don't overshoot.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a highlighter junkie and I love these. The colors are pigmented enough to draw attention to it but not so much so that I can't read the font that I highlighted. It rarely, if ever, bleeds through paper. I usually avoid green and orange because they tend to be too pigmented and dark but the ones in this bunch are perfect. It also does not smudge and I'm very prone to that since I'm left-handed. I like the clear view part since it helps me see when I should stop highlighting, very precise." —Steph

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I suck at doing my eyeliner and no amount of YouTube makeup tutorials can help me. But now that I have these handy little erasers, I don’t look like a failed smokey eye every day. You might be thinking, why not just use a makeup wipe instead? Or why not just soak and tip in remover? Well, because that doesn’t work as well. Trust me, I tried that too. These are great because they have a very fine pointed tip so the accuracy is great. Plus they are sturdy. These are awesome." —Faith Foster

    60. A retractable keychain that holds your lip balm, because enough with losing every freakin' stick you've ever purchased and then finding it again in some random jacket pocket right after you've replaced it.

    Promising review: "If you lose your ChapSticks a lot, I would highly recommend getting this holder. I love how I am able to grab my lipstick/lip balm/ChapStick, uncap, moisturize my lips, re-cap, and just let go. The retractable part is probably the best part because it makes it easy to get, and even easier to put away and not lose your ChapStick. This holder is perfect for people who travel and/or who are always losing their ChapSticks." —Mit's
