    1. Slow-cooker liners that'll make your set-it-and-forget-it routine even easier by making cleanup a snap!

    Amazon

    I adore my slow cooker but hate cleaning up after using it. So I use these handy lil' bags. Read my full review of Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners (#4).

    Get a two boxes of four liners from Amazon for $8.99.

    2. Glass phone screen protectors that even YOU can DIY (I did!) and will protect your precious device every single day.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Each of the protectors that come in a pack have lasted me about six months! Check out my full review of amFilm Glass Screen Protectors (#2).

    Promising review: "I never post reviews, but this is a unique circumstance. I bought these screen protectors because they were cheap and came in a pack — probably not the best approach when trying to protect an $800 device. But, at the end of the day, these did exactly what they were supposed to do when a 15 lbs. dumbbell slipped out of my wife's hand and fell directly onto the screen. After telling my wife there was no way her screen didn't crack, I pulled back the cover to reveal a crack-free, fully intact screen. And that's why you buy screen protectors in packs!" —Geoffrey Forman

    3. Easy-glide shower hooks you'll be thankful for every morning when you groggily throw open your shower curtain.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    I own these and they're totally smooth sailors.

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $5.55+ (available in several finishes).

    4. A bottle of V.I.Poo for deadening treacherous toilet smells before they can happen.

    Amazon

    I've used this before and it's very effective. It's like Poo-Pourri's cheaper cousin! Each bottle has up to 300 sprays for up to 100 uses.

    Promising review: "Works great, especially having to share a bathroom with five men." —ashley krause

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in three scents).

    5. A wood polish and conditioner that'll leave you with *such* impressive results, that I threw in not one, but TWO before and after pics to show you what it can handle. You're welcome.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a Magic Eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    6. A cleaning pen that'll *gently* revive the look of your jewels that you DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE have grown cloudy over time. Don't worry, it's made with micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer for a pro-level shine at the price of your morning coffee order.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the Dazzle Stick from time to time to add a quick shine to merchandise that was just tried on and on days our jeweler was not there to professionally clean items. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided. The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up reducing that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a Diamond Dazzle stick of my own. It's the perfect way to quickly give my ring some shine before leaving the house. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new shiny sparkle." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    7. A super powerful deodorant that won't make your precious pits break out into rashes.

    Amazon

    I started using this stuff in middle school and used it into adulthood. I recently fell for the allure of cucumber-scented deodorant that promised to help make my armpits softer. Turns out, it broke me out into a rash and I'm back on Mitchum. And my friend who has about a million skin allergies swears by it too!

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $6.80.

    8. A password book you should fill out IN PENCIL because who can keep up with all those passwords you constantly have to change and apparently are not strong enough for the robots unless it has something like 29478495734592713 on the end.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.33.

    9. And a monthly bill planner for helping manage those expenses that feel like they're looming over your head. Sometimes just putting pen to (v organized) paper can help make the daunting things feel much more manageable!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    And it's non-dated, so you can start now in November instead of waiting 'til 2020 or just using up the last two months of 2019!

    Promising review: "I really like this planner. I've been saying I’m going to get my life together and get out of debt. So in order to do that, I need to keep track of my budget. When I saw this I said let me just see it’s less then $10 so I’m sure it’s not gonna work for me!!! Boy was I surprised. It’s super big; it has enough space for me to write. The lines are separated very well. It has my budget for the month, then a page for weekly activity. I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s thick not thin like a $1 store book it’s sturdy. Folks let me tell you. Order this and save yourself some money and enjoy this. I can’t wait to order more." —Nia

    Get it from Amazon for $6.89.

    10. A four-way cleaning brush can make big moves on those black suede (or nubuck!) boots you decided to shuffle around in the dirt while wearing last weekend. No more regrets!

    amazon.com

    It has four sides: one to clean heavier scuff marks and stains, one to gently clean fine suede and light scuff marks, one to clean rounded corners, and one to clean hard-to-reach crevices and grooves.

    Promising review: "I was really sad when I thought my bucks were at the end of their road, because I had always heard that suede couldn't be cleaned. With this brush and a little elbow grease my bucks are looking great again! I didn't use any water or cleaner, I just kept wiping the brush off on my jeans to keep the brush clean, then hit the shoe again with a clean surface. It even brightened the leather up a bit." —Roberto

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    11. A grocery bag carrier to keep in your car so you can make a few less trips from the driveway to the house with your grocery store haul.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I live on the second story of an apartment with only stairs and we have to park farther away as we live in Chicago. This makes life sooo much easier. Yes the bags are still ridiculously heavy if you pack them on there, but being able to hold all the bags at once prevents my husband or I from cutting off the circulation in our arms from the plastic bags. The handle does hurt your hand when there is a lot of weight, but you can tape it up or put on gloves." —Alyssa R.

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. Silicone shoelaces to hook into your everyday sneakers so you can slip into them in a jiff.

    Amazon

    These are especially handy while going through airport security or if you have limited mobility or hand dexterity!

    Get them from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in a variety of colors, and kid's and adult sizes).

    13. Sound-dampening door bumpers that'll keep everything from kitchen cabinets to closet doors from slamming while you go about your regular schedule.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I put these on my kitchen cabinet doors and sliding closet doors. They're fantastic!

    Get a 300-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A ~long~ bottle brush for getting every last spec of dirt out of your tall-neck water and wine bottles.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. A dish squeegee to do all the scraping for you when it comes to unsticking pasta sauce from your plate or scooting food scraps into the garbage disposal.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you have ever had to repair or replace a garbage disposal, then I am sure you have been lectured on basically only allowing crumbs to fall into the disposal. This dish squeegee makes prepping dishes for a dishwasher or sink washing a breeze. I hold the dish over the trash can and after a few swipes, the dish is ready for washing. In comparison to using a paper towel, it saves you money, helps protect the environment, and keeps your fingers free from gunk." —She Who Reads

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    16. A pair of coffee scoop/bag clips (one for each hand!!!!) so clever, you'll wish you'd invented them yourself.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99.

    17. Softgrip scissors to tear open boxes, zip through wrapping paper, and handle a number of other tasks, all without making your hand ache.

    Amazon

    I don't know how Fiskars does it, but their scissors just work so much better than any other brand's

    Get them from Amazon for $6.48.

    18. A makeup-erasing washcloth — it'll be soft on your skin and tough on that waterproof mascara. *And* it'll help you cut down on your disposable makeup wipe habit.

    Amazon

    I have these! And even though they admittedly don't work as well as the original MakeupEraser, they doing a pretty swell job for a total bargain with an extra swipe or two.

    Get five from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three pattern combos).

    19. A makeup sponge holder set with spiral holders for letting air circulate around that freshly cleaned sponge and then cute lil' carriers so you can take it on the go without dirtying up the sponge or your bag.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $9.89 (available in five color combos).

    20. And a highly rated makeup sponge in case you've been bad about washing your current one.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Cute, cheap, and works great to blend out foundation/concealer. It's not dense and expands when wet. It also washes easily, thank god, which I didn't think would be the case with my pale foundation on a black sponge. I only need to use normal Dove bar soap. I think I'll stick to this brand for Beautyblender dupes in the future. Their sponges work perfectly and are much prettier, (I'm not a bright fuschia kind of girl)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.93.

    21. An adorable brown sugar–saving gingerbread man to keep the sweet ingredient clump-free for your next baking adventure. (No more buying a new package every time you decide to bake!)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Had a large amount of brown sugar and couldn't keep it soft, even in a tight container. I purchased new 5-quart jars for my flour, sugar, and so forth, and quickly realized my brown sugar was a ROCK! I purchased this, soaked it, and placed it in the sugar as instructed. Within hours it was soft again! I have about 2 lbs. of sugar in the 5-quart jar currently. The jar is sealed with a gasket but I haven't had to re-soak the bear yet (only a month in use currently). Would recommend to anyone at this point, just mad I have wasted so much brown sugar over the years. I have not used it for any of the other uses, like cookies or bread, but will probably purchase more in the future since this little bear is dedicated to my brown sugar." —diosa

    Get it from Amazon for $7.32.

    22. A setting powder made for oily skin that you can easily take on the go to keep your T-zone looking like matte perfection despite every other factor.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome! I have highly oily skin and natural hair. My skin tone is medium dark with yellow undertones. Weather has been over 100 degrees and my makeup has remained on point! Best product I've ever purchased." —Nid

    Get it from Amazon for $5.64.

    23. A car garbage bag that'll help contain some of the mess that ends up on your backseat floor. Someone buy this for my Uncle Bill STAT. But wait, he may need a bigger bag.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    24. A tactical writing pen with a point that'll break glass or serve as a weapon against an attacker if ya' need it to. This takes the pen being a sword to a whole other level. Hopefully you'll use it for writing considerably more often than breaking glass.

    Amazon

    Made from aircraft grade aluminum for superior strength and portability. Includes six ink refills.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    25. Or a dangerously cute pen set you'll want to take everywhere so you're not left looking for a pen in times of need.

    Amazon

    Includes six pens, four sticky note designs, and an on-theme carrying pouch.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    26. A nourishing hand cream to give your ragged cuticles and dry paws a major overhaul.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have suffered from splitting and cracking fingers every fall and winter for years. I tried Eucerin, Lubriderm, and Gold Bond creams, but none seemed to relieve the splitting from reoccurring. I tried O'Keeffe's Working Hand Cream and within two-and-a-half days, the splitting and cracking were no longer a factor. Since using the cream, I have not suffered any more cracking or splitting. I am on a busy schedule and only use it at night when I go to bed. It says it's non-greasy but you can definitely feel a slick texture on your hands once applied. That's why I use it at night before bed when I don't have to open door knobs, touch smartphones, or shake hands. It has the texture of cake icing, goes on smooth and works into the skin quickly. It has no smell I can detect. I am so glad I found this cream, it has ended years of split and cracked fingers/hands." —T.H.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.47.

    27. A flexible sink caddy so you won't have to search for an MIA cleaning brush or sponge, only to discover it in a pool of water in a mountain of dirty dishes. Gross.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5+ (available in three colors).

    28. A shampoo brush that'll help loosen buildup from styling products and make in-shower detangling a cinch.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Using this thing has definitely been a game changer for me. I sit down in my shower, apply shampoo to my scalp and use circular motions to massage my scalp and it feels sooooooo gosh darn good! I have 3B hair. The silicone bristles are not too soft and not too hard and the hand grip is perfect. I swear, if someone were to use this and massage my scalp for me, I'd probably pass out." —Ella Sans

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    29. And a Wet Brush that'll do major things for unruly hair (and maybe save a few bucks of the detangling spray you normally use to douse your hair).

    Amazon

    I also have one of these and its flexible bristles work their way to sort out tangles without hurting my thick head o' hair.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.44+ (available in four colors).

    30. A phone-holding dino to make video chats and reading news stories so much easier on your over-used hand.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in eight colors).

    31. Sheet suspenders for keeping your fitted sheet *right* where you want it, lest you roll yourself into a burrito during a night terror.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get four from Amazon for $8.99.

    32. An odor eliminator set to toss in any place that's smelling slightly bad for some non-stop freshening power.

    Amazon

    Includes four bags and S-hooks for hanging in places like closet rods. These activated bamboo charcoal air freshener are microporous, and help remove odors and wick excess moisture from the environment.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    33. And fridge bin liners that'll keep your fridge tidier so your family will actually consume all that fresh produce you bought.

    Amazon

    It absorbs produce-rotting moisture, and is reversible and trim-able.

    Promising review: "I like these. Help keep moisture down, increase life of fresh products, and keep the drawers and shelves clean." —Alexandria, VA

    Get a three-pack of 12"x24" liners from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors and two quantities).

    34. A fiery eyeshadow palette you'll find incredibly versatile for everyday wear! You can go easy with the lighter hues or really dial it up the farther you move to the right.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a really outstanding duplicate! The colors are very pigmented and butter smooth. I'm in love, and the price totally can't be beaten! I admit that I was pretty skeptical, but I couldn't be happier. Definitely worth the buy!" —LW

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    35. A toothpaste squeezer/stand to help you get out every last drop without doing a manual squeeze twice a day. (Three times a day if you're that good.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was surprisingly easy to use — the crank is very easy to turn and it was actually fun to wind it up. It is weighted, so I imagine it would hold up a full tube, though I might be more inclined to use it with a half-full tube. It keeps a half-used tube of toothpaste very tidy on the shelf. (See photo.) It worked great with the dog's toothpaste too! I bought a few more." —Laurel

    Get it from Amazon for $5.39.

    36. Contoured eye masks for a blackout experience that nestles around you nose but still allows you to comfortably blink. Win-win!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four patterns).

    39. Satin pillowcases you can rest your precious head on every night in the pursuit of better-moisturized *and* looking hair and skin. Bedhead and weird lines on your face, be gone!

    Amazon

    As a side/stomach sleeper I wake up with lines all over my face if I sleep on a cotton pillowcase, but this satin pillowcase set is super affordable, prevents weird pillowcase lines on my face, AND keeps my hair looking like way less of a mess. Oh, and it's also better for your skin. So yeah, I'm a fan.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in four sizes and 14 colors).

    40. A rust-removing spray to work like a magic trick in neglected showers, minus the elbow grease. OK so maybe your shower won't look like this "before" frequently (let's hope not!) but it'll be there on hand to help clean much less minor stains.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Seeing is believing. I posted before and after pictures of our bathtub. It was gross and orange rust stained. Not even Mr Clean Magic Erasers touched the rust stains. But now it's shiny and looks brand new. I sprayed it on (yes, it's more of a liquid than a gel but it still works). I came back an hour later and wiped it off. No elbow grease needed. Majority of the rust was gone, only thing left was soap scum and that easily wiped away. I'll be buying this stuff again!" —NMP

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    41. A bedside caddy to keep your nighttime essentials nearby, like your sleep mask and current read, to name a few things.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.58+ (available in two colors).

    42. A mattifying makeup primer for a smooth finish that'll stay that way for so much longer.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am not one to leave reviews but this stuff deserves recognition! In my 32 years of life I have never had something that is supposed to control oil actually do its job. From the moment this stuff touched my face, I felt a difference! My face is extremely oily that by the time I walk out the house, my makeup is sitting on top of my face looking caked. This is the first time EVER, I had a primer leave my face matte with makeup on. Although I love my look with makeup, I hate what the oil does so I’m usually limiting my application to eyebrows and under eye. Although this is day one of use, my makeup has been on my face for almost four hours and I have yet to pull out my MAC blot powder or oil control sheet to touch things up. I am IMPRESSED and that is a major compliment considering I’ve literally tried everything on the market and this $5 product surpasses them ALL!!!" —Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    43. A dog water bottle so you can stop carrying around a collapsible bowl and water bottle to keep your pup hydrated and ready for play.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Every time I (Harper) use(s) this Gulpy in public, I get multiple inquiries about it and always recommend them to come here on Amazon and buy one. This thing is amazing and so practical. The 20 oz. size fits plenty of water for a long walk or a day at the dog park. It does not leak at all when the drinking section is folded close. And it is so easy to carry; feels like a regular water bottle. There is a belt clip on it if you're into that sort of thing. The only downside is that you cannot pick the color that you will receive; we just lucked out and got blue. Overall, thank you for inventing this — it has been extremely useful!" —Kristen Lisicki

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in two styles).

    44. And a hair finishing stick to smooth out all those stray hairs and bumps that seem to magically appear no matter how much smoothing and pulling you do while putting up a pony or bun.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield
