    Promising review: "This is such a lifesaver for my drains. I used to clog my sink all the time with beard trimmings. This apron catches all my hairs and allows me to throw them away. It is simple to use." β€”Zach Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    2. A super-soft Makeup Eraser to wipe makeup right off your face with nothing but water and a gentle scrub β€” I've been using one for two months now and it has *drastically* cut down my makeup-removing routine.

    A reviewer with half their face with makeup, and the other half makeup free after using the eraser

    It's got two sides β€” one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you're done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.

    Promising review: "THIS. THING. IS. AMAZING. I have literally never had clearer skin. It does exactly what it says it does: erases your makeup. Waterproof or not, it all goes away with just a little water and a little bit of scrubbing. I will forever be amazed by this. Never buying another makeup remover product again." β€”Brittany

    3. A beloved microwave pasta cooker that's really the embodiment of "a watched pot never boils" β€” now you can skip all that wait time and get right to the eating. All you have to do is put water and dry noodles in it, hit the microwave buttons, and strain it right out of the container. Noodles on noodles, y'all.

    Promising review: "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week. If not more. First of all, I like spaghetti β€” either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterwards. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly-measured spaghetti; it's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot; no colander; no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta. Just the easy-to-clean Fasta Pasta, and a pot to heat up the sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" β€”Smilin Sam

    4. A set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil' unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way instead of going through a whole shaving cream-razor-prep routine.


    This tool also helps soften skin by gently exfoliating as you use it!

    Promising review: "I just got this delivered today, so I decided to test it. I'm a woman with very dark and coarse hair, so my peach fuzz is a little more prominent than normal, and I'll admit that I do have a unibrow that I try to shave. I've tried everything from a facial blade that never really did much of anything, to a regular old razor, and then finally an electric razor. None of them did what this thing does. My electric razor cuts about half of the growth of the hair, and this razor completely eliminated it. I can't even feel any residual hair that's usually left when I shave, only skin. Plus the built in exfoliation when in use is a great addition; no need for any sort of lotion or shaving cream (although you may want to use right after a shower or get the area wet to weaken the follicles, just as you would any other sort of razor before shaving, and also to avoid razor burn). I hadn't really intended on this happening, but I actually procrastinated on shaving my unibrow this time around and this is going to sound so odd but I'm glad that I did because it completely eliminated the existence of my unibrow." β€”Natalie Clark

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    5. Or a painless battery-charged hair remover you can simply glide over super fine hair like the hair above your lip or between your brows instead of going all out prepping a bunch of wax.

    Promising review: "I'm sold. Yes, face shaving. My hair didn't grow back stubbly or thicker. AND my face was SO soft afterwards! I'd highly recommend this product. The instructions were incredibly easy to follow. This product came with its own carrying case that can also fit the extra replacement head. It's very compact and discreet. I was pleased with how well it removed all the fine baby hairs on my face. It isn't exceptionally strong in power, but it doesn't need to be. I wouldn't say that this is strong enough for stubble, but perfect for a soft face. Highly recommend!" β€”sabrine hoteit

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. An acetone-free soak-off gel nail polish remover you simply apply directly on top of your nails like an extra coat of polish β€” it bubbles up and shrivels the gel polish, making it easy to remove without all the hassle of going back to a salon or the whole aluminum foil bonanza of other at-home kits.

    Promising review: "The consistency is very thick and looks like dried out nail polish but that’s what it’s supposed to look like. I put it on my gel nail polish and waited about two minutes and then removed it with a cotton ball. Within a minute of putting it on, the gel nail polish begins to look like little bubbles and clumps up so all you have to do it wipe it clean! Works well and does not have a very strong smell. I would rather much use this than soak up my nails in acetone." β€”Elena

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

    7. A dream balm made with calming herbs and essential oils like lavender, chamomile, mugwort, and valerian to help you nod off to dreamland in a timely manner instead of playing mind games with yourself for a full hour before conking out.

    Woodland Herbal/Etsy

    Woodland Herbal is an Ohio-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in skincare, salves, and tea blends.

    Promising review: "I tried it last night and I haven’t slept this hard in a long time. The smell alone is soothing when you put it on your temples as you drift off to sleep. I usually toss and turn but I slept like a rock." β€”Emily Irvin

    Get it from Woodland Herbal on Etsy for $14.

    8. A dual hair dryer and brush to dry your hair as you style it and give your 'do an incredible amount of volume and shine in wayyyy less time.,

    Promising review: "I was trying not to get my hopes up based on all the positive reviews, but holy moly, this dryer brush is amazing! I feel like I’ve missed out on years of great hair up until now. I have long, fine hair that needs some extra help to get more volume. I’ve typically relied on volumizing dry shampoo and not washing every day to do that β€” which has helped a lot but felt like I was missing a step when drying my hair. I could never manage the professional-looking blowout...until now! I even have setting curlers and am using Boldify spray. It is easy to use, even on my first try. The settings are easy to access, and no worries about hitting the switch because you twist instead. It dries fast and isn’t too loud. I love it and will be using it from now on!" β€”Lacey Dias

    Get it from Amazon for $41.61 (available in four colors).

    9. Or a well-loved diffuser attachment for drying curly hair β€” it's built with an extra-large design for quicker drying, and 360-degree air flow to diffuse hair evenly and gently, so hair can maintain its natural curl and bounce.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this diffuser. I had been using a hooded hair dryer on wash days for years, and was getting frustrated with the 45+ minute dry times along with 'triangle hair' and lack of volume due to the dryer blowing down on my hair. Not only do I get wonderful volume with this diffuser, but I’ve more than cut my dry time in half with only needing about 20 minutes. Mind you, I have very thick 3b/3c curls that are a couple of inches past my shoulders. Works wonderfully." β€”SarahG

    Get it from Amazon for $22.84.

    10. A hands-free shopping bag carrier with some real Santa vibes β€” this lets you connect all your grocery bags together and haul 'em up in one go instead of going back and forth from the car three times.


    Promising review: "I've tried so many different products that are supposed to allow you to carry multiple bags at once, but nothing has worked as well as this! It's easy to use: Just hold one end of the handle and thread the other end through the handles on the bags. Carrying the bags over my shoulder works really well for me because it allows me to spread the weight of the bags over my hips and back rather than taking all the weight on my shoulder. It's very well-made, sturdy, and really makes your life easier. It's worth the money." β€”S. Hill

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in four colors).

    11. A pet hair removing stone so effective at quickly pulling up pet hair from the most ingrained, inconvenient spots in your house you might get a little spooked and wonder if it's magic.,

    Promising review: "This is the single most amazing pet hair remover ever, it really gets all of the hair ... I have tried everything, even posted a photo of just a few of the items I have tried ... this stone is glorious, it usually takes me an hour to clean my couch with a mix of various products/items to get the job done, even then there is still hair. I opened this today and cleaned my entire couch in 20 minutes with this stone and my couch looks brand-new! This thing is amazing!!!!" β€”carol

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

    12. A bottle of Goo Gone for quickly removing all those mysteriously sticky, tough-to-scrub stains, like toothpaste or shampoo residue or the adhesive left on your windows or cars from sticker decals.

    People also swear by this for removing annoying stickers from new products in their kitchens and bathrooms, too!

    Promising review: "I had some decals on the front door of my business that had been there for over seven years that I wanted to remove. When I tried to pull them off, all the adhesive stayed on the window. It smelled awful. I tried everything to get it off the window: vinegar, sponges, Mr Clean Magic eraser, and finally pan scrubbers. I realized I was risking damage to the window, but the adhesive would still there. A client who saw what I was trying to do about the time, recommended Goo Gone. I let my arm rest for the two days it took for Amazon to deliver the Goo Gone. I spread it on with a paper towel, and let it sit for a short period. Then I took a cleaning rag and careful removed the rest of the residue. Easy! Next day I removed another decal. I applied the Goo Gone to the thick adhesive residue, and let it sit. Immediately the odor stopped. Huge benefit! Then as I wiped it off, the residue fell like sticky little worms dropping to the ground. A little more clean up of the floor, and I was done. Now I can feel confident that the new decals will come off just as easy when I need to change them, as long as I have my Goo Gone." β€”Andy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    13. A portable paw cleaner with soft silicone bristles to help gently remove mud and dirt from your doggo's paws without doing the whole toweling off song-and-dance every time you reach the front door. All you have to do is add a little water to it, insert your dog's paw, twist, then pat the paw dry and repeat.

    Psst β€”Β lots of reviewers mention that their dogs seem to really like the feeling of the silicone bristles!

    Promising review: "My yard is an absolute mud pit! I tried everything to clean my two German Shepherds' paws. This is the only thing that works! The silicone bristles must feel good on their paws because they actually stand still and let me clean them. The only complaint I can say is that it hurts your back after a while leaning over them, but I will take that any day rather than cleaning my floors 100 times! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solution to their pup's muddy paws!" β€”Kendra Frankovsky

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes and six colors).

    14. A home organization printable to guide you from room to room in your house, giving you a time efficient and *much* less stressful way to tackle each mess in your house, one step at a time.

    one of the brushes attached to a drill next to a shower pane with half still fogged up and the other super clear

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing these for a few months and finally caved.. Man do I regret not picking them up as soon as I saw them! They work GREAT! We rent an apartment that has a 30-plus-year-old shower/tub. I've used everything from abrasive powders, gels that sit to most recently the bathroom magic erasers and nothing really got the grime out. These WORK and they work fast. Ten minutes with my handy drill and the shower has never been cleaner. I love that I don't have to throw money out on cleaning products anymore and that I can be a little more environmentally friendly with no waste and no chemical cleaners! Just a little dish soap, baking soda and a spin of the brush. If you're on the fence, just buy them!" β€”Becky Adie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    16. A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity and watching half your life go by.

    a before image of the inside of a stained mug, a during image of it with soapy water, and an after image with it clean

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug; I tried everything β€” bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING β€” and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $8.

    17. A TubShroom, a little gizmo you can stick in your shower drain to catch all your hair and remove it all at once instead of crouching down and yanking at it for dear life (a lovely visual image for you, y'all are welcome!).

    reviewer image of hair caught in the white tube-shaped TubShroom

    Promising review: "I have tried everything I could think of to cut back on hair clogs. I definitely became a pro at taking apart my drain to clean it which is a disgusting process. Between my long hair and having two dogs who shed in the bed when we aren't around there is a lot of hair of different lengths. This simple creation catches it all and is easy to get the hair off. The drain stopper still works for baths and the soft silicone is more gentle if a kid rubs it than the original screw on drain cover. Fantastic." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    18. A super quiet, lightweight, portable electric pet nail trimmer that even the most easily spooked pupper or resentful cat will appreciate β€” its gentle vibrations make the whole process less alarming to their lil' brains, and easier on pet owners, so you can get the job done in minutes instead of negotiating with your cat for an hour.

    Promising review: "A must-have! Really awesome, makes trimming my dogs nails a good experience for the both of us. Isn't loud therefore doesn't scare my dog. Very easy to clean after use and battery lasts. I have trimmed three dogs' nails without any issues." β€”Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $22.94.

    19. A set of brush-and-flush toilet tabs made with baking soda that'll fizz up in your toilet for 10 minutes and make it super easy for you to brush away the gunk when it's your turn to do the bathroom.

    20. Plus a pumice stone to get rid of those stubborn toilet rings like *snaps fingers* THAT, even if they've already thwarted your efforts with the toilet brush.,

    Promising review: "Awesome for cleaning toilets!! Buy this now if you have hard water stains!! We tried everything on toilets when we bought a house ... we were about to replace toilets and tried this. They look almost new now!! Def prefer the ones with a handle, especially when using on toilets!" β€”Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    21. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 14,000 5-star reviews on Amazon β€” people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling and damaging hair, so you'll win back those ten minutes you usually spend going "ow OW ow ow" in front of the mirror each morning.

    It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don't have to time out your brushing.

    Promising review: "I was really skeptical when I bought this brush, wondering if it was really going to work on super curly, easy-to-get-tangled hair. It has exceeded my expectations and I can't believe how awesome it actually works. This is great for thick, curly, hard to untangle hair. It doesn't get caught in the snarls and it is so easy to brush hair now." β€”Kimber Burks

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88.

    22. A dual-sided device cleaner with two sides β€” one with an antimicrobial-treated cleaning solution to clear off the grime, and another with a soft polishing buffer to make it gleam β€” so you can get that quality *shine* in mere seconds instead of wiping down the screen a zillion times.

    One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

    Promising review: "Saw a friend at work using this; she showed me and I had to have one. I wasn't disappointed. Gets all the gunk off my phone, iPad, computer screens, and my kids' Kindles. Getting these for gifts this year. Awesome." β€”kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    23. A natural, sustainable loofah you'll be soooo glad you invested for in scrubbing off tough stains much faster than weak sponges β€” especially since you can customize by size and density, perfectly tailoring it your housecleaning (or body care!) needs.

    Per the seller, soft low-density is great for gentle face exfoliation, semi soft high-density for body washing and light house cleaning, firm low-density for dishwashing, and firm high-density for body exfoliating, dry brushing and general house cleaning.

    24. A rapid egg cooker so you can cook a week's worth of breakfast eggs in a matter of minutes, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier. Breakfast just got a WHOLE lot faster every day of the week.

    An egg cooker with a transparent dome plastic top, where six eggs are cooking inside

    I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of three years, and especially love it during social distancing β€”Β it simplifies breakfast because I know no matter what weird assortment of groceries I'm working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!

    Promising review: "Best quarantine purchase yet! This little guy is so cute and handy! I just tested three eggs in case they didn’t turn out, and they were perfect!! I was all prepared to be blasted out of my house for the buzzer at the end (according to other reviews), but it wasn’t bad at all. It literally plays a little song. So cute!" β€”Austin Klimek

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    25. A Squatty Potty, one of those internet-famous stools you can put at the base of your toilet to prop your feet up on while you ~go~. The placement helps align your colon to make the process a whole lot easier and faster β€” like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! β€” so you don't end up watching all of TikTok while you're waiting yourself out.

    Promising review: "I love Squatty Potty and you will too. It works like a charm. You will wonder how you got along without it all these years. Think 'Laundry Chute'! That's the best way I can explain it. You will have more time on your hands now, that you own a Squatty Potty. You go into the bathroom and you are out in seconds, not 10; 15; or 20 minutes as in the past." β€”campromise

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    26. A jewelry helper to clasp your bracelet for you in record time, instead of spending a full five minutes doing a bunch of wrist wiggles and straining your thumb like your hand's been possessed by a ghost.

    A reviewer using the helper to clasp their bracelet with one hand

    Promising review: "This bracelet tool is awesome! I bought one for myself, almost 60 years old, and my mother who is 85. They work great for both of us. We both had trouble fumbling with our bracelets to put them on and off!!! Now it takes all of about five seconds, if that long. We both love them and use them all the time. Now I can wear my charm bracelet anytime I want. This tool is a great size and fits in your purse, too. Would highly recommend." β€”westtexascat

    Get it from Amazon for $6.48.

    27. An "Angry Mama" microwave cleaner that uses vinegar and water to blow hot steam into your microwave oven and loosen up all the old food and stains in a mere seven minutes, and help clean up any future microwave shenanigans, too.

    The Angry Mama figurine posted next to a clean microwave

    Promising review: "This product is so amazing, I'm going to get one for all of my children. I am a teacher, and I let my students use my microwave. Usually it takes me half an hour of scrubbing after 31 students have made popcorn, and heated up lunches. This time I used the product, and I literally spent less than one minute just wiping down the microwave!!! I will now keep one in my classroom, and one at my home. A miracle product that actually does what it says, remarkable!!!" β€”Desiree Barlow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    28. An smudgeproof eyeliner stamp so you can finally get the perfect cat-eye on the first go without having to ~wing it~ (read: wasting eight cotton balls, half a bottle of eye makeup remover, and all of the minutes you were setting aside to make your morning coffee).


    Psst β€” this tool is double-sided, so you can choose the thickness of your wing, and comes with two stamp pens β€” one for each eye!

    Promising review: "Amazon makes all things possible, even the perfect winged liner. I’m speechless. I’ve never been able to do winged liner in the 30 years I’ve walked the earth. This product is amazing, it’s seamless. Literally, it’s fool-proof. Not to mention it has great staying power, it’s very dark, and hasn’t smudged all day. I seriously wasn’t expecting to like it this much, you’ve got a customer for life!" β€”Taylor

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.97 (available in two colors and four styles).

    29. A silicone baking mat for your sheet pan, so you can roast big batches of veggies with all your favorite sauces and seasonings without greasing up a whole pan and doing a massive scrub of it later.

    A reviewer's vegetable and mozzarella sticks cooking on a sheet pan

    Promising review: "I had grown tired of replacing cheap 'nonstick' baking pans, so I read some reviews and the pros seem to all recommend natural aluminum baking pans without a nonstick surface and then using a silicone baking mat like this for your nonstick needs. Between the aluminum sheet and these mats, I spent way more than I ever had on a baking sheet and the prospect of making cookies on a silicone mat seemed a bit unnatural to me, but I was happy to see that after a few bakes, not only do these work wonderfully well, they leave no plastic after taste on the cookies. As advertised, they are very easy to clean and with a good sheet, do an awesome job at baking evenly without burning. I am sure I will eventually buy more of these, but for now, this two-pack was good enough for us." β€”Michael J. Eckman

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.40.

    30. A pineapple cutter that will peel, core, and slice up your fruit in a matter of seconds, so you can stop ~pining~ for your pineapple and start adding it to your dishes for an unexpected tangy twist.

    Promising review: "This has worked exactly as advertised and as everyone reviewing it says. I can't believe how easy it is. I'm eating pineapples all the time now instead of buying them and throwing them away in a week because I'm too lazy to cut them." β€”RR

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    31. A PhoneSoap, which is a compact gadget that kills up to 99.99% of bacteria with UV light in just a few minutes, sanitizing little objects like their phone, keys, eyeglasses, and even face masks instead of scrubbing them down by hand or doing a load of wash.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who-knows-what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." β€”Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $78.75.

    32. An iRobot Roomba E5 to effortlessly keep those floors spotless without ever lifting a finger β€” these are self-directed, so you can preset a schedule for the Roomba to just start cleaning your floors each week, even if you're not home. It even learns your schedule and habits and adapts to make your life easier 😭.


    They can also sync this bb to their Amazon Alexa or Google Home to give it voice commands whenever something needs to get cleaned, stat. Plus β€” be still my robot-loving heart β€” it uses Dirt Detect Sensors to figure out which areas of their home are more highly-trafficked, and clean them more thoroughly.

    Promising review: This product is worth every penny. My dog has fine, short hair and sheds horribly. This device worked AMAZINGLY on hardwood floors! The extra suction power for pet hair makes a huge difference. Even on our area rugs, the Roomba does a great job. If you are debating on whether or not to get this device, it makes life a whole lot easier with dusting and sweeping. The battery life is great β€” we keep ours on the charger while we aren't using it. Setup and controlling the Roomba is very simple. It can be controlled straight from your phone. When the Roomba is done with its job or low on battery, it automatically returns to the charging port while sending you a notification of its movement. Overall, great product! Would recommend this to everyone." β€”Amelia

    33. An electric potato peeler that whoops, just got a permanent spot on your counter. Not only does it effortlessly peel potatoes, but it can handle pretty much any peeled produce you throw at it, from apples to kiwis to oranges to tomatoes. (To be clear, though, your highest priority should *always* be mashed potato-ing.),

    Promising review: "Love it! It's light and easy to use. When I use a potato peeler I was always peeling too much potato with the peel. This blade is fine and only gets the skin, in seconds. Except for the 'poles' of the potato but I don't mind. It's easy to clean if you have a sprayer to just rinse off the spikes where you insert your potatoes. Small enough and doesn't take up much room." β€”yestfl

    Get it from Amazon for $24.90.

    34. A set of plant-watering globes with some adorable whimsy to cut down on all the watering for your plant babies β€” these release water slowly into the soil and keep them watered for several days for you.

    Glass bird-shaped watering globes in soil

    Promising review: "These are so cute and lovely! Very convenient to leave your plants with water when you are away. It’s a bit hard to refill but once you get it it will be no issue at all. Perfect for indoor house plants." β€”E.Ng

    Get them from Amazon for $15.59.

    35. A self-scooping litter box so you'll only have to deal with it once every few weeks. Bonus: it also monitors your furry friend's health using motion detectors to log how often they ~go~.

    You do have to use their litter trays for it to work β€”Β the disposable trays are $48.95 for a pack of three.

    Promising review: "Probably some of the best money I've ever spent in my whole life. Is this outrageously expensive compared to your classic plastic tray? Yes. Does it lock you into using their proprietary litter trays? Yes. But...does it work? YES. There is ZERO odor. I mean ZERO. Like I can put my head inside the small storage area we keep it in, and if you were wearing a blindfold you'd never know the box is in there. Everybody in my house is so happy! Cat gets an always-clean box to do her business, we don't ever deal with cat box smell, and my spouse loves the cleanliness of this box versus the traditional one. Bonus, petsitters never ever have to scoop while we're out of town! If you're thinking about an automatic box, DO IT." β€”Magi

    Get it on Amazon for $169.95.

    36. A pair of shredder claws to carve all your meats up faster than Wolverine can blink, sparing you and your measly fork from getting in a lengthy tug-of-war.

    Promising review: "My pork shoulder always tastes good, but I'm too lazy to pull or chop it properly. These claws really made short, pretty easy work of that job. I used them just as described: I put the meat on and took it off, cut off a portion, dug in, and started pulling. You can make your pieces as big or small as you like. Much easier than with a fork or knife. They just work. I think, after writing this, I'm going to go put a shoulder on right now." β€”Edwin C. Kebschull

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    37. A dryer and washer-friendly sock coupler that'll spare you the treasure hunt of trying to pair all your socks together at the end of every load of wash (and the angst of knowing that, like Romeo and Juliet, they were destined to be torn apart).

    Two plastic rings with snags to hold socks in place

    Promising review: "I love these discs. No more lost socks! They take a couple seconds to apply, but my socks come out clean, dry, and ready to fold. They're actually a time saver because you don’t have to search the whole laundry bin. Each sock is paired and ready to go." β€”G. J. Kleinpell

    Get an 8-pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three shapes).
