    1. A rainfall shower combo if you want to incorporate a little luxury into your bathroom.


    Promising review: "This is an amazing shower for the price. It is easy to install. I love that the handheld nozzle has two settings and the rain head is very nice and soothing." —hermosa

    Price: $46.96

    2. A 10-pack of self-adhesive floor tiles that are so cute, they'll make you want to dance all over them.

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with this paint roller kit. The rollers do not shed lint as some do." —Octi6

    Price: $11.98 (originally $19.99)

    4. A 128-piece project kit so that you can take on any project, no matter how big or small.


    This set includes a cordless drill and driver, a drill bit set, a stud finder, a socket set, a wrench set, a tape measure, a storage bag, a level, a box cutter, a hammer, and more!

    Promising review: "I like pretty much everything about this toolset, but the BEST thing about it is the drill! It has a 20-volt battery that doesn't need to be recharged very often. It has worked well on wood, drywall, PVC pipe, composite plastic, foam, and particleboard. It is well balanced and not too heavy. Like all drills, the key is to be patient and not press too hard." —VBSGuru

    Price: $96 (originally $144)

    5. A 4-inch house number plaque if your guests get lost literally every time you invite them over.


    Promising review: "These floating numbers are easy to mount on brick, siding, and other surfaces that aren't smooth or even. It's a nice, heavy metal unlike the plastic junk that my local stores sell." —Nickname

    Price: $2.85+ (originally $5.69, available in six colors)

    6. A 6-foot ladder so you can *extend* your capabilities as a DIYer while still being safe when you're working.


    Promising review: "This is the best ladder I have ever owned. The fiberglass build is ultralight but sturdy and strong. I feel safe on it even though I have a genuine fear of heights. The clips keep it from opening during transport and there are a few holes for tools and screws in the top that are very useful." —Hatchlings

    Price: $59 (originally $69)

    7. A 6-pack of drawer pulls if your cabinets just need a few pops of color.


    Price: $11.19+ (available in 12 colors)

    8. A bench and rack that'll be perfect for turning a corner of your home into a gym.


    Promising review: "This is a great bench with a lot of accessories. I recommend it." —Garfield

    Price: $129.99

    9. And a 6-pack of foam interlocking tiles so that you won't slip on your own sweat or ding up your floors when you work on your deadlift.


    Price: $13.60+ (originally $19.99, available in three colors and six sizes)

    10. A bottle of caulk if your grout is looking a little worse for wear.


    Promising review: "This stuff works really well. I had a crack in my toilet tank and another in the bottom of the tub. I couldn't afford a remodel so I used this to repair both of them. So far, it's holding up great! I would definitely recommend it for both temporary fixes and permanent seals around sinks, tubs, or any other place that is exposed to water." —PonyTail Kid

    Price: $3.77 (originally $6.60)

    11. An in-ground basketball hoop so that you can surprise your kids by transforming your backyard into an outdoor court.


    Price: $129.99 (originally $199.99)

    12. A kitchen faucet with a 30-inch long hose and a 360-degree swivel spout that'll make doing the dishes a total breeze.


    Promising review: "Our Vigo kitchen faucet operates smoothly. The sprayer is easy to disconnect from its base and stretches long enough that the user can easily fill up a deep pot or spray along the lower sink to avoid water splashing on the counters. The sprayer has a button on the side to easily switch from regular running water to a gentle spray. It is especially useful for people who have arthritis or difficulty controlling hand movement." —MaryGS

    Price: $165.89

    13. A pegboard kit if you're living in a closet-sized apartment and could use some vertical storage space.


    Promising review: "This is an excellent, multi-purpose product! I have one for my office space and one for my garage." —Deanna

    Price: $56.88 (originally $81.99)

    14. A roll of marble adhesive film that you can use to cover all the eyesores in your home.


    Promising review: "I am so happy I ordered this adhesive film. It is much prettier and more glamorous than the image gives it credit for. I purchased it to redo the top of my desk and it is so fancy. I will definitely order another roll for future use." —loseorwinme

    Price: $7.98 (originally $15.99)

    15. Or a 10-pack of self-adhesive tiles if you want to make a more substantial change but don't have the cash to hire a contractor.


    Price: $31.99 (originally $34.99)

    16. A compound miter saw so you can cleanly cut the wood boards for your new window trim.


    Promising review: "I love, love, love this saw! It's absolutely perfect for cutting 45-degree angles on trim boards for the wood frames I'm making for my resin art pieces. It's so simple to use! Its swivel tabletop is set up perfectly and clearly labeled so pretty much anyone can figure it out quickly. It's easy to adjust to the angle you want and it cuts really well. It also has an attached metal guide so you always end up with a precise cut the first time. It's lightweight and easy for me to carry around. I'm sure it would be awesome for cutting trim and molding boards on a job site, too." —Dawn

    Price: $99

    17. A smoke alarm with a silence button if you shattered the last one because it wouldn't stop screaming.


    Promising review: "This was very easy to install and test. I am a 65-year-old woman, so it's important that the alarm is very loud. We burn wood so I wanted it for the basement adjacent to the woodstove. There is also a silence button in case we leave the stove door open too long when loading wood. This is an excellent alarm for our needs." —dar22

    Price: $7.67

    18. An electric space heater if your room gets unbearably drafty in the colder months.


    Promising review: "It's only been about 10 days, but this heater is working out just as expected. It is very attractive and puts out continuous supplemental heat without taking up much space. The top and sides stay cool and safe to the touch as the heat comes out from the bottom. It doesn't harm wood floors but you should be careful about leaving toys or other things in front of it. There are easy dial and button controls for determining the desired level of heat and flames. I've used it every day and night (about 715-hour periods) so far and it shows no signs of strain. It is super quiet and gives off a very low glow that doesn't disturb my sleep." —2016Shopper

    Price: $59.99 (originally $99.99, available in two colors)

    19. A ceiling tile because you want to do something totally unexpected when you give your home a makeover.


    Price: $76

    20. A bi-fold door if you want as much access to natural light as possible.


    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting much for the price and was pleasantly surprised. The wood is very nice. I plan to paint it but think it would look nice with a stain, as well." —plainman

    Price: $266.42

    21. Or a barn door kit if you want a partition that offers both privacy and character.


    Promising review: "This track system was well made and looks great! Installation was very straightforward." —BT

    Price: $39.99

    22. A wallplate because it's so much prettier than the plastic ones that are turning yellow with age.


    Promising review: "This product is absolutely beautiful. It is made of heavy metal but is easy to install and would compliment any area where you have warm tones and darker furniture. The price is excellent and I'm thrilled that I could afford to get rid of the standard, cheap plates that came with the house!" —SmartShopperSuzie

    Price: $5.88

    23. A retractable awning so you can enjoy your patio without getting burned by the hot summer sun.


    Promising review: "This awning was easy to set up and install, but you'll definitely need a little help. It looks great in the backyard and was very affordable. I live in Seattle and I haven't had any issues using it during the rain. It is waterproof and doesn't drip at all." —Tony

    Price: $289.99 (available in 12 colors)

    24. A pedestrian gate if you've been dreaming of a white picket fence since you were little.


    Price: $138.99

    25. A baseboard that is so elegant, it can elevate every room in the house.


    Promising review: "The trim is very beautiful. It came quickly and was very well packaged. We needed trim that was a little more flexible since our wall isn't quite straight and this fit the bill. It was easy to install with brads. We also like that it is less prone to water damage since we are using it in the bathroom." —Pilgrimgal

    Price: $16.25

    26. A kitchen cabinet if you're just dying for a little more storage space for your extensive set of kitchen gadgets and souvenir mugs.


    Price: $140.99 (originally $223.48)

    27. A mirror and vanity because it's about time the two of you had some room to spread out.


    Promising review: "I found this exact vanity at several other sites for over $2000! The finish and quality were better than expected. It is made of real wood and a real marble top. The easy-close drawers are great, too!" —cherie

    Price: $739+ (available in two colors and two sizes)

    28. An electronic door lock so you never have to worry about forgetting your keys at home again.


    Price: $68+ (available in four finishes)

    29. A pair of unfinished window shutters that you can paint to match your front door and give your home some old-fashioned charm.


    Promising review: "These shutters exceeded my expectations of what I would get for the price. It was an excellent deal and they look awesome." —Carol

    Price: $112.86

    30. An 8-pocket tool pouch so you can have everything you need on you without having to work with your hands full.


    Promising review: "I am not the handiest person, but I figure a tool pouch is useful even if I'm just doing light work around the house. If I am going to change a light bulb, for example, I think it's best to be hands-free when climbing up the ladder. This pouch is definitely very well-made and feels like it will last for many years. There are eight pockets and an adjustable belt. My favorite feature is the magnet on the front because it holds all of my screws." —SodaCostanza

    Price: $16.84 (originally $18.92)

    31. A 5-hook coat rack because you're sick of shoving all of your purses into your closet.


    Promising review: "I love this wall hook. I have two and will buy more in the future. It's a great quality, sturdy product that has a clean and modern look." —Mindy

    Price: $30 (available in six colors)
