    Amazon

    Promising review: "The perfect solution for the wire clutter on my home office desk. I have quite a bit of computer peripherals and other electronics and heretofore, I had no effective wire and cable management system...that is, until I discovered these little beauties. Did not have high expectations because of disappointments with similar products in the past. I was pleasantly surprised at the difference these made in my home office. All my wires are neatly organized and tucked away out of sight. No more mess. It now looks organized and more productive." —Big E

    2. Light-blocking curtains that'll keep your bedroom (or any other room!) as dark as you want. Plus they'll help maintain your ideal indoor temp!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Once you put these bad boys on your window, the room will turn into a black hole of darkness that will engulf both soul and body. I cannot even describe the room I was in as black, it was a much deeper, almost boundless effect. Sensory deprivation will set in within minutes. You will lose all sense of what is up and down and feel like you are floating in deep space." —The Raccoon

    Get them from Amazon for $18+ (available in six sizes and nine colors).

    3. And a ~streamlined~ door draft stopper to keep gusts from coming in under the door. It'll just look like a natural part of your door so other decor design choices (like that cute welcome mat) can shine!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So easy to set up! All you do is peel tape and adhere to a CLEAN and DRY door. Also looks great, I don't even notice it. I had a huge gap under my door. I could smell and hear everything from the hallway. Smells, drafts, and sound all are less of an issue now." —Brit B.

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

    4. A memory-foam cushion for anyone whose rear could use a real treat. So, arguably, everyone.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Thanks to this cushion, the second I get out of my chair or turn my back my cat jumps in my seat. He looks too cute to kick him out so I may have to buy a separate cushion for him. A+++ best cushion I've ever bought and cat-approved." —Thetortagirl

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    5. A jar of the The Pink Stuff — a TikTok-famous cleaning paste made to handle all kinds of sticky, stuck-on situations like this nasty-looking kitchen faucet. 

    Promising review: "I need this in bulk!! I have tried so many cleaning solutions to get out hard cooking stains on my stovetop and nothing worked! This stuff took it right out without a problem!!" —Micaela Gunderson

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in seven colors).

    8. A minimalist tissue box cover that'll bring the right amount of whimsy to your setup. I have this and just love it!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    That is my nightstand. I love this thing! Plus I've been known to hide a tissue box because, let's be honest, they're all ugly. I've been on the receiving end of some snotty payback as a result. No more! Also I know it's a very small thing but it makes me very happy. Plus! Since I first wrote about owning this, I've bought one for my bedroom at parents' house in gray. 

    Promising review: "Since I am a broke 31-year-old this was the only house I can afford. Plus it helps hide the tissues I use to cry in every night." —Lizbanta

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

    9. A set of stove burner covers to help you catch the mess right away on gas stovetops. Or just cover up some chipped or sorry-looking stovetops. (I live in a rental with a white gas stovetop that def has some unsightly chips on it, so I can relate!)

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Psst, as you can see above, this set also comes with a crumb catcher where your stovetop meets your countertop!

    Promising review: "I've been using the foil ones and while they do the job, they're not so nice to look at. I like that this is black so it matches the original color of the appliances, but more importantly I like that this has a larger surface area to catch the drips that the foil ones never could before. They're also trim to fit, so they get right up into each burner without leaving gaps where drips can burn where it's hardest to clean. Time will tell if they're as durable/reusable as they claim. If they are, then I'll try to trim two of the spares to fit the center large burner. Overall recommended." —Michael

    10. A nine-pack of reliable nonscratch sponges – they'll make serious work on your nonstick pans with coating you don't wanna compromise. Stuck-on messes, be gone!

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "This is pretty much all I use with dishes. I find that this sponge is usually the perfect gentleness/roughness for washing dishes by hand. It's always an exciting day when I can pull out a new sponge from the Scotch-Brite sponge bag and throw away the old one. It would be nice to have a dishwasher, but these sponges are less expensive and more fun!" —MAW

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    11. An over-the-door cabinet organizer so you won't have to stare at a pile of hairstyling tools every time you go to brush your teeth. You'll be locating your hair dryer in record time!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, keeps things organized and separate, and it also looks nice. It fits two of my blow-dryers, a flat iron, and curling wand. The bars are adjustable, as well (just use the twisties it came with to secure them in place). Worth the buy!" —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four finishes).

    12. A broom and mop organizer you can mount on a closet wall for a tidy "after" so you won't worry about an avalanche when you open that door. You know what I'm talking about. Ok it doesn't look simple with everything on it. But that mere row of hooks is ~magical~.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Hard to get a good picture in my very small pantry area, but this hanger works great for keeping my cleaning tools at hand yet off the floor. Mounting template worked great and it came with a couple bags of screws and anchors so I had the right ones for my wall. I would buy this again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in four colors).

    13. Or a pair of broom holders in case you've gotta get a little more nimble with your closet storage solutions. I use my coat closet to store cleaning supplies because, well, NYC one-bedroom apartment. And these broom holders have made SUCH a difference in the organization.

    two hooks for broom handles
    Amazon

    I've been in my apartment for years and had all but resigned to having extremely disorganized cleaning supplies...that is 'til a whole bunch of them tumbled in an avalanche on top of me one day when I opened the closet. There's something about a broom handle smacking you square in the nose to serve as a wakeup call. I easily mounted both of these to a closet wall, where they now hold my broom and Swiffer. They do a good job *keeping* the grip on the handles when I inevitably bump into them. The cleaning tools may sway a little bit when bumped, but just a teensy bit. I cannot believe I waited so long to make the (v small) investment in these, but I'm glad that I finally did. 

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    14. Odor-blocking trash bags to buy another day here or there before you take out the trash. Take it from me, a lazy person. These work.

    Get a box of 80 from Amazon for $13.55.

    15. A wood scratch cover you can use to help cover up dings and discoloration on door frames and molding so everything will blend in like normal. Also, it requires no sanding or refinishing! Cue to you on the prowl for more wood surfaces you can fix up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't believe how well Old English works! I recently purchased a home where a dog previously lived and had horribly scratched the woodwork. I thought I may have to sand and refinish the woodwork around two doors. Old English saved me a lot of work! " —Behold Behold!

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82 (also available for light woods).

    16. And wood repair markers to hide smaller scratches on your fave furniture. We love a repair instead of a replacement product!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these work! Much better than I was expecting. I just had my home interior painted and the painters damaged a fiberboard medicine cabinet when they removed the masking tape. It ripped off the fake wood veneer. These markers completely filled in the ugly spots and the colors blended well. I love that it appears to have some clear coat in it too as it dries with a slight shine that makes it look more like wood stain rather than marker. I also used them to stain wood filler in two spots in my maple kitchen cabinets where a previous home owner had hung a paper towel holder and I really struggle to see the hole! It looks fantastic. I highly recommend this set. It’s a good value and works very well." —Shane

    Get a set of 13 from Amazon for $9.99.

    17. A laundry-detergent drip catcher to help salvage some of that precious goo, so you can go a tad bit longer in between shopping trips.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Holy cow! Why didn't I think to make this!? This thing is probably the most helpful thing I own! I despise how liquid detergent is in these huge tubs with a spigot. It has to lay on its side and it ALWAYS drips down on to whatever is underneath. It's so frustrating! However, this fixes that problem! It easily just slides on the tub and holds firm. I use it on the All tub, but I would imagine it would work with any standard size tub. I keep the cup sitting on the little shelf and it catches any drips. So no waste!" —Rachel L. White

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    18. Pimple patches that'll attack blemishes that pop up in the least convenient time (so any time) by sucking out the gunk without irritating your skin around the blemish like drying treatments. Keep a pack of these in your bathroom and you'll be set!

    amazon.com

    I've used these and can confirm that they WORK. I had a lot of acne before taking Accutane at age 15, and if these were around back then during ancient times I would've bought them by the truckload!

    Promising review: "Omg, where has this been my whole life? Why did nobody talk about hydrocolloid patches when I was a teen? These truly do shrink your pimples (as long as it is an open or popped one). I just put one on before bed and by morning, voilà! All that's left is a small bump, if anything at all. I seriously couldn't believe my eyes. (All those years of suffering from acne! I'm in my 30s now with hormonal acne, btw.) These are magic!" —Julie W.

    20. An eye compression mask to block out every last bit of light in your bedroom while feeling soft against your skin. (BTW, it was designed by an orthopedic surgeon to help relieve migraines, tension headaches, sinus pain, and eye strain.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The material of this product is very soft. The beads inside add the right amount of pressure on my eyes in order to feel comfort and relief after a hard day of work. It forms itself to my face, providing excellent coverage and comfort. This is a very well-done sleep mask that I would recommend with my eyes closed (no pun intended). But, in all seriousness, this masks helps me sleep better, and I am very satisfied with my results. This is my second purchase." —Amazon Customer

    21. A set of satin pillowcases I personally swear by for keeping my hair and skin moisturized (vs. cotton pillowcases). Plus! They're super soft and look glam.

    23. A set of wool dryer balls that'll be a wonderful effective alternative to fabric softener sheets or liquid that can cause some serious buildup on machines.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using these for over year now and I absolutely love them. I only use four in my dryer and they have reduced the time it takes to dry clothes. I did not add a scent to the balls so I sometimes throw a dryer sheet in with the balls. They make a soft thud sound while drying. I have given them as gifts to all of my sisters-in-law and they love them." —P. King

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    24. A cushy lumbar pillow you can position as its name implies or use to elevate your knees or feet. TV watching just leveled up.

    Amazon

    My mom requested one each for her and my dad for Christmas 2019 after reading my coworker's story about things that'll make you never want to leave your couch. So I got to give these a test run myself and uh, they're *so* good.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95.

    25. A wooden lap desk you can use for inhaling some pancakes, reading, or binge-watching on your laptop. I own this and it was my 2020 WFH MVP, hands down.

    26. Suspenders for your sheets that are exactly how they sound so no matter how much you toss and turn, your fitted sheet won't pop you in the face in the middle of the night when it comes loose. It happens! I know!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These have worked great! I like bamboo sheets, which are slippery and the corners always came up. Since I started using these my corners haven’t come up and the sheet stays relatively wrinkle-free." —Beachyfun

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors/styles).

    27. A brown sugar saver disguised as an adorable terra-cotta bear that baking fiends *might* be sad they didn't know was a thing 'til now.

    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 $4.98.

    28. A dishwasher magnet so everyone in the house is on the same page about whether it's OK to eat off a plate that's in the dishwasher.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I got this because my mother has dementia and she kept putting away dirty dishes 🤦🏽‍♀️. And believe it or not she has actually been using it and it definitely has been working! So I highly suggest buying this for parents or someone you know who has a similar problem!" —Raquel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.92+ (available in four styles).

    Also check out a version that's completely silver without the red or green for $19.95.

    29. A Squatty Potty which, if you don't already know what it does, helps position your body in a way that'll feel more natural for your colon and, therefore, make going no. 2 easier. (More or less.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've struggled with the #2 for the last couple years. I've gone from Defecating Toxic Avenger to 'Dear GOD! I feel like I'm passing the Twin King Guardian Statues.' It's been a sphincter nightmare. No matter what I tried: prunes, more water, high fiber, Taco Bell, even White Castle — nothing was working. Usually, in a three-week interval, I'd get very sick and spend three to four hours going to the bathroom nine or ten times. After my sphincter would be tender and I'm damn near positive if this had gone on, it would be the end of me. Then I saw this. Decided to go ahead and plunk down the $25. By day two of using it I started to feel better and my cramps were gone. I swear to god, when I go on my next road trip, I'm taking the damn thing with me, and IDGAF if my friends laugh at me. This damn thing may have saved my health and possibly my life." —DJ_Malsidious

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99. Not into the white plastic look? Check out a ghost acrylic version.

    30. A Beard King trimmings catcher that'll make cleaning the bathroom sink SO much easier if you can convince your currently bearded bae to actually use it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My girlfriend bought this for me as a present. At first I was skeptical to use, but once I got my hands out it there was no going back. I use my Beard Bib anywhere two to four times a week and cannot live without it. Not only does this serve a big purpose in my trimming routine but now I no longer have to argue with my girlfriend about all the mess that I USED to create. Also, we ordered a beard oil recently and reached out to customer support about the different scents they offer, they were super helpful! Overall it has been an awesome experience and they’ve truly made me feel like a King!" —Timur

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four styles).

    31. Safe grabs silicone mats for putting a safe barrier between hot things and important stuff, like your hands, in so many situations.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am a sucker for innovations that I see on Shark Tank so bought this without giving it much thought. When it arrived I thought I had probably made a mistake, but turns out I use them all the time. I keep one in the microwave, which makes clean-up easier but also allows me to use it as a potholder. I keep the other in a drawer and use it as a trivet to protect my counters and table. Stores easily, has lots of uses, cleans in a flash. Pretty cool." —Kathy, Avid Reader

    32. Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo that'll target residue from all that dry shampoo you have built up in your hair so your scalp with truly feel clean. I get it. Really.

    the shampoo bottle
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this shampoo for once-a-month use to remove excess products such as leave-on conditioners etc. I have dry, curly hair and need very moisturizing conditioners and leave-on products, but those can build up over time (even washing hair three times a week). This anti-residue shampoo resets the hair and makes it feel so light and clean. I've been using it for over two decades. Unfortunately it's really hard to find this in brick-and-mortar stores nowadays for some strange reason (and I live in a big-ish city) so I'm happy to find it on Amazon at a great price." —Dumpling

    Get it from Amazon for $4.83.

    33. A sharp bed skirt to coordinate with your bedding while masking the horror show underneath your bed. Trust me! I use one to mask my own underbed storage area.

    Amazon

    Even the minimalists should get on board with this. Just go for one with clean lines like this one! I went a few years without one and then was floored by the difference it made in hiding all the stuff I shove under my bed. And I store A LOT of stuff under my bed!

    Promising review: "I could not get it to fit right at first for some reason. Probably because I was having a bad week and wanted something to be angry about. When I was in a better state of mind I got it and laughed at how simple it was. Fits well and covers the mess I am hiding now that I went up to a king." —Dennis E. Marquardt

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in six colors, sizes twin–king).

    34. Plus some adjustable bed risers that'll buy you 3, 5, or 8 inches of extra space for stashing all sorts of stuff under that bed.

    Amazon

    Again, a dust ruffle will hide these bad boys if you're worried about optics. And they'll also work with couches or futons.

    Promising review: "These blow my mind. They've added so much storage under our bed. I worried about them being durable enough to withstand our weight but there was no need to worry. Just this past weekend, both my husband and I were on the bed when two of our teenage sons ran and jumped on the bed with us. I didn't even hear a creak from these bed risers. There must have been close to 800 lbs. on our bed at that point and these risers held up like champs." —Kelly McHone

    Here are some handy under-bed storage ideas.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.26.

    36. A humidifier that may seriously help your stuffy nasal passages and dry winter skin woes. Buy one for your bedroom AT LEAST but you'll thank yourself for buying one for your living area too. Just think of that harsh indoor heat!

    Amazon

    Trust me, running one of these in your bedroom while you sleep will take your skin's moisture up a notch and may even help you sleep a little more soundly. They help me! This cool mist model has a 1.5-liter tank that can put moisture into the air for up to 16 hours of continuous operation. FYI, this tank size is good coverage for bedrooms, offices, and other medium-sized rooms.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    37. A slim cutlery organizer to make room for the rest of the stuff you've been keeping in an unwieldy standing container on your countertop. Trust me, I have it and love it!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to about using about 4 inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I'd guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It's worth every penny." —Kathleen Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56.

    38. A bacon sponge "unpaper" towel to help get the extra grease off of your fave breakfast side with a reusable kitchen tool!

    It's 12"x11", and made of polyester and organic cotton. It's super absorbent but easily cleaned by soaking the towel in hot water and a degreaser soap like Dawn. After soaking, it can be washed along with your family's towels. Green City Living is a Denver-based Etsy shop that specializes in easy-to-use items to help you go a bit greener.

    39. A scratchy lil' tool to FINALLY get all the pet hair off your fabric surfaces both inside your house and car. You'll wonder how you lived without it up until now.

    Promising review: "This this is like magic. Our van was nasty and covered with hair from a German and Australian shepherd. Looked brand new after. Don’t think about just buy it. It will blow your mind." —Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    40. A silicone sink strainer that can make ridding it of tiny food particles easy as pie so you aren't awkwardly standing over your trash can raking them out of your OG metal strainer like a masked killer in a movie. I bought one of these and it truly is game-changing.

    hands holding sink strainer with knob you can toggle to help get food off of it
    Amazon

    You know what I'm talking about. I own this and have NO dishwasher, so I do a whole bunch of hand-washing at my sink. This does a fab job of catching all the food bits (including the ones I thought I'd already raked into the trash) so they won't go down the drain. And the silicone construction makes it easy to pop out and violently beat the metal part of the drainer against the side of my trash can to get out the food bits. Of course, I'm wearing dishwashing gloves when I'm doing this. But I still don't want to touch the old gross food! Even through the gloves. TL;DR, your sink could really use this. 

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    41. A set of reusable coffee pods you can fill with your favorite ground brew and then toss in your K-Cup machine like normal. This'll put a halt to tons of plastic pod waste, both for the environment and your fam's monthly budget.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These reusable filter cups work PERFECTLY with our Keurig Elite B-40 model. Usually we use K-Cups, but we received a bag of ground coffee as a gift. We attempted to use our old reusable filter cup that we'd had for an old model Keurig, and it just created a mess and left tons of grounds in the cup. Amazon delivered these K&J cups in a day and they solved the problem. The bottom and sides are mesh, which was not true on my old reusable filter cup, and the little lid snaps shut snugly. They come four to a pack, but I don't see using the others until the one I'm using wears out. Very easy to clean also. So happy to find these!!!" —Jamie von Holstein

    Promising review: "I am 9 months pregnant and my sister is 8 months pregnant. So I decided for Christmas this would be the best stocking stuffer. I am so happy I bought this. I honestly wish I had gotten it sooner. Especially with how frequent getting up to use the restroom at night is when you are pregnant. This light is perfect because it allows you to get your business done and return to bed without really getting out out of sleep due to the light brightness in comparison to the actually restroom light!! Great buy! I have already had several family member request that I buy them one as well. 😉" —Olga

    43. Wool dryer balls you can toss in the dryer instead of chemical-coated dryer sheets that, psssst, leave behind buildup on the inside of your dryer and thus makes it less effective over time.

    FYI, this hook will hold up to 7.5 lbs.

    Promising review: "I'm a big fan of Command products; I think they're brilliant. I know some folks have had bad luck with these ruining their walls, but I've only had good experiences. I use this big guy to store my step ladder in the pantry. They're simple to apply and even easier to remove. Shipping was super fast and the add-on price was sweet." —Oregonians

    45. Fridge bin liners that'll absorb extra moisture in an effort to keep your produce fresher for longer. PLUS, they'll catch the brunt of messy spills and will be so much easier to clean than taking a drawer out of the fridge and awkwardly scrubbing it down in your sink. I've done that before and it's not great!

    Promising review: "I love these cup organizers. I have a small cabinet above where my coffeepot is and these have made it a pleasure to open that cabinet. All cups are organized and easy to get to. They stay right where they should be. No more stacking them inside one another and them falling over when I opened the cabinet. I also use these for some bowls in my dish set. Works great. I just ordered a couple more and I am going to use them for my china cabinet. I wondered when I first bought them because the price was a little high. Worth every penny and more. I can not say enough good about these." —ChefGirl

    Promising review: "I got this for my three-legged cat because he can't scratch his left side. He'll be trying to scratch and all you see is his little nub going crazy. I found these and he immediately LOVED it! The expression on his face when he first tried it was priceless. The only downside is that it's possible it'll fall off because it was hard for me to get all pieces of tape to stick on a corner at the same time, but I can always buy more double-sided tape so not a big deal to me. The product is for Floyd, not me, and he's happy so 5 stars." —Pippa Runs

    51. A powerful dish-washing spray that, honestly, if you buy anything from this list, this should be it. You can spray down that casserole dish caked with enchilada sauce, let it sit, and you simply wipe and rinse away that saucy mess in a few minutes. (Can you sense an enchilada theme here?)

    I live in an apartment without a dishwasher, and I honestly use that as an excuse to order takeout food instead of cooking. But, as soon as I got my hands on a bottle of this stuff (regular Dawn is my go-to dish soap, BTW), I put it to use on both a saucepan I used to make homemade enchilada sauce *and* the casserole dish I baked those enchiladas, which had a ton of caked-on food. It really does work like I say it does! Like, scary well.

    52. Magic Eraser cleaning sheets to fit into all the nooks and crannies you wish your OG Magic Eraser could fit.

    Promising review: "I had a ventilation cover that was disgustingly dirty. I tried 409 and other detergent, but the grease build up was so heavy to remove. I used Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Durable. It cleaned most of it, but the edges were still dirty. Then I used Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Sheets. I folded it to make it stronger and used a chopstick to rub vigorously. It cleaned all the grease and now it looks like a brand new. These erasers are amazing. The tougher it is the better it works. In other words, if the surface is not so dirty, regular cleaning method may work better." —Saporica

    53. 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.

    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
