    Promising review: "I am the queen of all things cheap so please believe me when I tell you that this affordable bag is a MUST-HAVE. I saw this gem on a friend's Insta and asked where she bought it. I practically fell to the ground when she told me where it was from (Walmart) and for how much (less than two drinks at happy hour). Sold. This reversible bag is a spot-on dupe for more expensive totes, and it carries everything I need — a 13" Macbook, charger(s), headphones, makeup, wallet, full-sized dog, queen bed, you name it! I'll admit, I ordered three (for two-day free shipping) but I have zero regrets. The quality was the biggest surprise upon arrival. It's super sturdy and able to take on a commuter girl's struggles in and around a big city. It has easily become my latest broke-girl staple piece. Trust me, your wallet and closet will thank you. —Jessica Seib (BuzzFeeder)

    7. A TubShroom to catch all your fam's hairs before they turn into a plumbing disaster. Trust me, it's LEGIT.


    Most of the BuzzFeed shopping writers own one and love it.

    Promising review: "Ok, so you might think you have a lot of hair, but let me tell you, you don't even know!!! My wife and I both are often recognized from behind by the height and heft of our hair and no one knows it more than the sad, overused, heavily purged shower drain in our apartment. If I had a dollar for every Drano injector or tub snake or as-seen-on-TV miracle product I've purchased to alleviate our hair problem, I would have enough dollars to hire a plumber, which I have also actually done multiple times. But that was before the TubShroom came into my life.

    The name was probably the thing that first made me click, because it's fun to say. The craziest part of the TubShroom's magic isn't just that it catches ALL the hair before it gets down the drain, every time, but that it does so without slowing down the draining process for the shower. It's incredibly easy to clean off and I only have to do it once a week when I'm cleaning the bathroom. Life-changing, indeed." —Jess Probus
