    1. A pair of kick mats to save you some dough on car cleanings and keep your vehicle's resale value in good standing despite what happens in the backseat post–soccer practice.

    2. A pair of airtight pasta noodle containers so you won't accidentally tip over that opened box of spaghetti in the pantry, only to watch all those tiny sticks crash to the floor in slow motion and ruin your dinner plans.

    3. A cheery glass water bottle that'll look so good on Insta, you'll be glad you made the resolution to stop buying bottled water while you're out and about.

    4. A 4-in-1 cross-body bag with different looks for when you're just bored to death with this gorgeous pattern.

    5. A nylon braided charger cable that won't fall prey to your fav fur ball's destructive nibbles.

    6. A makeup brush cleaner set that'll do the hard (but necessary) work to keep that pricey set in tip-top shape!

    7. A battery rack and organizer to help you corral the little multitaskers and test 'em so you aren't left in the dark with an unusable flashlight when a storm cut out your power.

    8. A pack of produce-saving sheets so you won't feel like you're pouring all your dollars into farmer's market finds that mostly end up whole in your compost. :(

    9. A lil' helper to keep your bar of soap from going all mushy and unusable with a draining tail.

    10. An Aeropress coffee set nearly every coffee snob I know swears by for some superb coffee you won't have to shell out money for in a crowded shop.

    11. A pet wand shower attachment to try out instead of using a pond's worth of H2O to get all the dog shampoo out — it'll easily hook up to your actual shower or hose!

    12. A pair of replacement windshield wiper blades because you know it's time but don't want to make a trip to the shop, much less pay the markup fee. Plus, reviewers say they last longer than other models!

    13. A pair of silicone makeup sponges to help you save on product because they won't suck it up!

    14. An under-desk headphone hanger as a way to avoid stepping on your expensive headphones on the way to the bathroom. Again.

    15. A pack of witch hazel astringent pads to outperform the pricier competitors.

    16. A bottle of wood polish to bring old pieces back to life or transform a curbside find into an heirloom!

    17. A microwave plate cover that'll help cut down on paper towel use, wasted noms, and cleaning products to wipe up said wasted noms.

    18. A handy butter dish designed to prevent spread-wasting slippage!

    19. A plastic welding kit for making all kinds of small repairs that'll have a huge impact on your everyday life.

    20. A bird waterer who'll keep an eye on your leafy pet so it won't bite the dust like the 38 others before it.

    21. A quartet of sheet fasteners to act like suspenders for your old fitted sheet on a new, deeper mattress when you don't wanna buy a new sheet set, too.

    22. A water filter pitcher you can use to help fill up the humidifier your skin's been depending on this winter instead of basically owning stock in gallon jugs of distilled water.

    23. A personal finance guide written in an actually helpful tone that won't sound like it comes from somebody who assumes you're spending all your cash on avocado toast and music festivals instead of trying to pay off your student loans.

    You in a few months after your friend said, "You shouldn't switch out your own wiper blades."
