    34 Products That Might Get You Out The Door Ten Minutes Faster In The Morning

    Psst — this $31 alarm clock is the secret to never hitting "snooze" again.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 30,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling on or damaging hair, so you can skip the time-consuming "ow OW Ow ow" in the a.m.

    This brush is designed to work on all hair types, but reviewers with 2c through 4c hair say it has worked well for them. It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don't have to time out your brushing.

    Promising review: "My daughter has a lot of hair that tangles very easily. Her knots get so bad that they needed to be cut from her head at times and even after cut those knots would not come undone despite pulling with all of our might. To me that was evidence that her hair is just impossible. Then we came across this brush. We saw a commercial for a different brand but when I logged onto Amazon I saw that this brush had far better reviews and has been around for quite some time. I ordered it and was not sure what to expect as many other detangling brushes simply failed even after adding large amounts of leave in conditioner and detangling spray to her hair. Lo and behold, this brush does as it promises. IT WORKS! My daughter went from dreading getting her hair brushed to doing it herself. She is 5 and says, this brush is relaxing. I highly recommend this product. It will save you time, money and sanity. It should say NO MORE TEARS FOR PARENT AND CHILD." —Nicole W.

    2. An affordable sunrise alarm clock that's a total game-changer for heavy sleepers or people who sleep in pitch black rooms, which make it all-too-tempting to slam "snooze" in the morning. This gradually lights up the room in the minutes leading up to your alarm, so your eyes are already adjusted to the light and significantly less groggy when it's time to get yourself up and attem.

    The round digital clock in three settings of brightness as time passes

    Promising review: "I haven’t had an alarm clock in my bedroom for over four years, because I can’t stand how bright the lights are. I was hesitant to buy another alarm clock, but wanted to give the sunrise feature a try. I love it! Firstly, I’m glad I didn’t pay for the expensive version, because this is exactly what I wanted. I can completely dim the clock’s light while I sleep, so I’m not bothered by the illuminated clock at night. I then set the sunrise feature to begin 30 minutes before wake up, and set the alarm to the bird chirping/nature sounds. It has completely changed the way I sleep and wake up and begin the day. The sunrise feature slowly wakes me up, and the nature sounds for the alarm are soothing and pleasant instead of the usual jarring blare of an alarm clock. Very happy with this purchase! Would recommend." —Tara

    3. An adorably encouraging daily planner you can fill out the night before to make sure all your priorities are planned and on track for the next day, so you don't have to scramble to prep for all of them in the morning instead.


    Each planner comes with 50 tear-off sheets the size of a standard piece of paper.

    Promising review: "So glad I bought this! This is a great little notepad! Cute, practical, and with just enough writing space to capture the most important things. Well worth the price!" —Nikki Grillo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    4. A reviewer-beloved, aloe vera-based curl refresher spray, because you've got enough on your plate to worry about revamping your entire wash 'n go when you can rehydrate without frizz with this instead.

    The Fro Experts is a Georgia-based, Black woman-owned natural haircare brand on Etsy formulated for type 3 and 4 hair textures.

    Psst — this is meant to be used in place of water as a refresher, but per the brand, can be used right after conditioning as the “liquid” portion of the LOC method in your wash 'n go or as a detangler.

    Promising review: "OMG and AMEN ... seriously, I have TRUE 4c hair and I have never in my 36 years experienced a true 100% natural/organic hair product, and for this to be my first time I'm beyond impressed. So pleased with my 2-year-old daughter's hair as well :-) Product does EVERYTHING its described to do :-)." —Rosanna Quinones

    Get it from The Fro Experts on Etsy for $22.

    Unlike other hairdryers, this one can be held closer to the roots and scalp for a higher volume and lift, and helps you curl hair at the end while it dries. It comes with three heat settings and is designed to work on all hair textures — reviewers with 2a through 4c hair mentioned it working for them, and especially noted that it helps cut down on drying time!

    Promising review: "OK. I never write Amazon reviews which isn't cool since I rely on them so much ... but I just had to write one for this!!! So my BFF has been trying to talk me into this for dyer for a while. I have REALLY thick, wavy, frizzy hair that never dries pretty naturally. I either get blow outs or spend about 20 minutes blow-drying my hair and THEN flat iron it. So I finally caved and tried this dryer for the first time last week. I started out with pretty wet hair and product in it. About 90% of the way into the dry, I thought it was OK...but then everything came together. My hair was straight, smooth, and styled in about 10 min tops. I couldn't believe it. I immediately called my friend who told me to try it with my hair almost air dried. WHAT? So I did it the next time and again...WOW! This time I dried my hair in about three minutes...not as straight and smooth as the first time but pretty darn close. This dryer is a GAME-CHANGER. I can't believe the amount of money I'm going to save on blowouts!!! My BFF said it's also great for bedhead and quick touchups too. Can't wait. TRY won't be disappointed!!!" —Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in three styles).

    6. Plus a blow-drying spray designed for faster drying, so you can cut your hair-drying time by as much as HALF. It's also heat protective and helps detangle, smooth, and soften hair.

    Promising review: "I am SUPER STOKED with this blow-dry spray. My hair dresser has been using this on my for years and I finally purchased it. I wish I hadn’t waited so long. It cuts my blow-dry time down by at least 40%. My hair is much smoother and healthier since I have been using. I like that it protects my hair from the heat of the blow-dryer and my flat iron. I would highly recommend!" —Roxy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.

    7. A poop bag dispenser with a flashlight so you'll never have to play guessing games during those dark early morning walks with the *one* substance nobody ever wants to play games with. It also comes preloaded with 15 waste bags and attaches easily to your dog's leash!

    Promising review: "I needed a poop bag holder that I could attach to my leash. While there are plenty of cheap quality plastic options out there, I went with this option because it had the added feature of a flashlight. I'm not always home in time to walk my puppy before the sun goes down so having the light attached to the holder is perfect (especially when I forget my phone on the way out of my house). I highly recommend if you'll be trying to scoop the poop in the dark." —RunningGal

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    8. A cold brew coffee maker to save you tons of time (and tooons of money) from all your morning trips to Starbucks. All you have to do is add coffee to the airtight brewer, add your water to the coffee maker, and pop it in the fridge overnight. BOOM, caffeine city.

    Promising review: "I don’t know what I did without this in my life. Easy to use, clean, and couldn’t beat the price!!!!! Love how it seals and I can drink it all week (not that it ever makes it that long)!!!!" —Rhiannon

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of this cold brew coffee maker for more info!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).

    9. Or a HyperChiller to instantly transform any hot or room-temperature beverage into an ice cold one, so you can just take your easily-brewed hot coffee and hack it into cold brew with this, too.


    Promising review: "This is going to be mama's favorite toy this summer. I love iced coffees in the summertime but I’m always too impatient to wait for it to cool off so I end up diluting it with ice. Just tested it out on this beautiful day and it works great! Small enough to easily store in the freezer. Easy to clean and could be used with white wine to chill." —Tessa Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    10. A pack of NeuroGum for anyone who wants to skip the time spent making coffee altogether — these are made with a blend of caffeine and nootropics, designed to give you energy five times faster than regular coffee. (Psst — it's also designed to work without giving you jitters or sluggishness afterward, so you can use it throughout the day, too.)

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This gum is awesome. Makes me super productive and tastes great for a caffeine based gum. Worth every penny. It's so much easier than drinking a coffee or a Red Bull and doesn't give me the same jitters a normal caffeine supplement would." —Cindy SEO

    Get a nine-pack with six pieces of gum each from Amazon for $21.

    You can read BuzzFeed Shopping editor Kayla Suazo's full review of NeuroGum for more deets!

    11. A set of airtight glass meal prep containers perfect for breakfasts on-the-go — these are safe in the oven and the microwave, meaning you cook your breakfasts early in the week and then store, reheat, and eat out of these in a flash, without *any* extra dishes to deal with.


    OH! They're also stackable, so no space wasted in the fridge. We love to see (and eat) it.

    Promising review: "I ordered these food containers to replace the original (cheap) containers that came with the lunch box I had ordered from Amazon as well. The glass contains seem very solid and sturdy. Obviously, they are heavier than plastic containers which people should have in mind if they buy them to put their kids' lunch in heavy glass containers into the already heavy backpack. The containers are easy to stack and even easier to clean, for lazy people like me, they are even dishwasher-safe. If you stack them, I wouldn't stack more than three just to be safe. They have the perfect size to fit your lunch in and since it is glass, you can directly prep your lunch in the oven in those containers or freeze if you prep more than a week at once. My porridge has not leaked in my backpack yet, so I'd say they are leak-proof." —Sharon N.

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $25.99.

    12. Plus a personalized spiral meal prep planner for anyone who wants to get a leg up on their breakfast plans (and other meals!) in advance, so you don't have to waste time extra deciding what to eat.

    Mod 86 Designery/Etsy

    Mod 86 Designery is a Minnesota-based Etsy shop established in 2009 that specializes in planners, address books, password books, and more.

    Each of these laminated planners has 60 weeks worth of pages, plus a double sided pocket in the back for coupons on receipts.

    Promising review: "I use this meal planner every week! The layout is clean and pretty, and I love the pockets in the front and back for coupons. Keeps our meal planning super organized from week to week. I staple our grocery receipts to each week too for extra tracking on what we are spending." —Kristin

    Get it from Mod 86 Designery on Etsy for $18+ (available in two sizes, with your choice of personalization on the front with eight font choices).

    13. A set of nonstick, reusable toaster oven bags that will let you make toasted breakfast sammies right in the toaster on mornings when you simply cannot afford to waste time staring at the stove.


    (Psst — you can also use these to reheat french fries, pizza, and even mini tacos, and get all that glorious heat without them getting all soggy from the microwave. Leftovers just got lit.)

    Promising review: "I had no idea how well these would work. You can put toast or rolls or anything that will fit in the slot — even if it has jelly or spread or anything on it — in the bag in the toaster and it doesn't hurt the toaster, and the food comes out warm." —mare36

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    14. And a breakfast sandwich maker that simultaneously cooks an egg, toasts bread, warms precooked meat, and melts cheese into the perfect sammie in less than five minutes — sorry not sorry to everyone else waiting in line at Dunkin'.

    Promising review: "I am actually excited for my weekday breakfast now. These homemade mcmuffins are so good! My favorite version uses sliced tomatoes, Swiss cheese, and precooked bacon (from Costco). So many options, so easy! My kindergartener and my teenager both love it. I may have to buy another one for our family. It's also easy to clean with a quick wipe-down." —Joolie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    15. A four-piece sock and underwear organizer to spare you the indignity of rooting around your dresser drawers every morning looking for that one! specific! bra!! that is *definitely* in there somewhere. (The comfy one, to be clear.)

    reviewer photo showing underwear and sock organizer in their dresser drawer

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $15.87+ (available in seven colors).

    16. 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 — like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! — so you don't end up watching all of TikTok while you're waiting yourself out.

    A model sitting on the toilet with their feet propped up on the white stool underneath it

    Psst — a lot of reviewers with chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal issues that get them ~backed up~ swear by this!

    Promising review: "This thing provided relief INSTANTLY! I have to take pain meds for severe back problems, which means I get blocked easily...even if I am on a liquid diet. The dreaded 24-hour prep process for colonoscopies takes 48-hours and twice the prep for me and there may still be stuff left over because my body hates pooping these days. It normally takes an hour or more before I just have to give up and use a suppository or enema. I take massive amounts of chewable gummy fiber, eat enough vegetables for my entire family, and drink water as if I were an ocean least 8–10 glasses a day (usually more...much more). If I drink coffee, I have to pee but that's about it. And I pee a lot with all that water. This stool is the FIRST thing that made this process easier. It arrived in its own box. I must be special. I unwrapped its plastic and placed it in its new glorious position. Then I decided, 'What the heck, let's give it a go!' AND I DID! No struggling. No squirming. No straining. No squeezing. No grimacing. No difficulty. Just GO! THANK YOU GOD!" —NoneYa

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    17. 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 — this tool is double-sided, so you can choose the thickness of your wing, and comes with two stamp pens — one for each eye!

    Promising review: "This stamp has totally changed (and elevated) my eyeliner game! I was a little dubious at first because I have literally, tried everything in an attempt to make a flawless wing/cat-eye look. I've never been able to master it and therefore, had pretty much given up on trying to make that happen for me. THIS STAMP IS A GAME-CHANGER! The first couple of times you use it will be some trial and error to determine where the appropriate starting point is on your lid, but once you get that down, it's literally SO EASY and looks perfect every time. I stamp and then fill in the rest of my eyeliner with my normal product — presto! Perfect wings in three minutes. And it DOES NOT budge. You can put this on at 6 a.m. and it still looks good at 6 p.m. It is also easy to remove with any drug store makeup remover or towelette. If it came in other colors I'd buy them all!" —J.S. Massie

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.04 (available in two colors and four styles).

    18. A satin-lined Hairbrella that's got your back winter, spring, summer, and fall — it protects your hair against rain, snow, humidity, and pretty much anything else mother nature can throw at you, so you don't have to spend an extra ten minutes staring out the window waiting for the rain to die down before you leave your house.

    Hairbrella, Hairbrella/YouTube

    Hairbrella is a Black-owned small business established in 2016 that specializes in hats combining fashion and function to protect against all types of weather.

    Promising review: "I never carry an umbrella cause they’re too bulky, so when I saw the Hairbrella I was so excited. It keeps my hair dry and my curls nicely quaffed, rather than me looking like I stuck my fingers I a light socket. I’m telling everyone I know about it, it’s an amazing alternative to those wide-brimmed hats or a briefcase LOL! Truly it’s never going Read more about review stating Love it!!to leave my side from now on! I definitely recommend it." —Gina C.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 or Hairbrella for $39.99 (available in five colors).

    19. A rapid egg cooker that I am warning you right now is going to become your most meaningful relationship. It can make soft-, medium-, *and* hard-boiled eggs in batches of six, so you don't have to wait a zillion years to cook your morning eggs. (It also poaches, scrambles, and makes omelets — and you can walk away from it while it's cooking and get other important stuff done!)


    I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and especially love it during quarantine — 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 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra "oomph" to it, I'll throw in an egg from this too. 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: "You know those objects that are totally unnecessary, but you see them and fall in love and live forever in happiness with your random kitschy thing? This is that thing. I saw this egg cooker on a BuzzFeed list and, even though I am a fully functioning adult who has never had trouble cooking eggs before in my life, I knew I had to have it. I have not been disappointed. It makes especially lovely, perfectly round omelets with minimal cleanup required. Hard- and soft-boiled eggs cook evenly and taste great. The poached eggs are tender and melt in your mouth over toast." —Sonnet A. Fitzgerald

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors).

    20. A weekly pill organizer designed with push-through silicone lids to easily organize your pills at the beginning of the week, meaning you don't have to spend a bunch of time rooting through pill boxes and trying to remember the timing of them each morning.


    Each pod also had a magnetized base, so you can easily remove it and replace it if you're on the move. The silicone lids are super secure, but also designed for gentle and easy opening and closing to account for users with dexterity issues.

    Promising review: "Love this thing!!! I'm only 30 and didn't want an old lady pill box... and this one was modern and cool. The little slots to push in pills is fantastic and the containers are very large. It keeps my huge vitamin pills on either side and could fit over 10 large ones if needed. Love this thing. Worth the price and looks like it'll last forever. I do wish the magnets were stronger. They just keep them in place but will slide off if bumped. I assume this is helpful for people with arthritis. It's an easy fix. I take down one days worth of pills, set it on my counter and now I'm not to lazy to take my pills!" —Chicken McNugget

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    21. A 3D-printed key holder/envelope keeper, aka an organizational BFF for anyone whose front hall breeds chaos. This way you can keep your outgoing mail and keys in your direct line of sight when you're in a rush on the way out the door instead of going on another series of wild goose chases.

    Crossover Designs/Etsy

    Crossover Designs is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in 3D-printed home products.

    Each of these fits a standard double gang (toggle/rocker) light switch cover, and can be installed easily without drilling, nails, or glue.

    Promising review: "Love it! Simple, sleek, space-saving, smart... who knew I’d be so stoked for a switch plate cover! Not to mention the customer service was very personal and attentive." —Kelsey Johnson

    Get it from Crossover Designs on Etsy for $17.99+ (available in six colors and two finishes).

    22. Plus a pocket-sized Tile Mate to cut down on time spent looking for things on your way out the door — these can easily attach to your keys, purse, or even your pet and easily find them when they're lost.

    White square shaped tile keychain attached to keys

    All you have to do is connect the Tile Mate to the Tile app on their phone, and if you misplace something, the app will find it in a snap (and even make the Tile Mate "ring" so you'll be able to hear it under the bed where the cat has hidden it — big mood).

    Promising review: "My boyfriend 'loses' his keys, wallet, and phone at least three times every single day. I wish I was exaggerating. I put 'loses' in quotation marks because if I have to come to his aid, I usually find the thing hidden in plain sight within five seconds. I love the man, but I was over it. So I ordered these. The wallet size is super thin, similar to a credit card so it'll fit in the slots. The keychain is small enough that it's not bothersome. The app is easy to set up and use, and he can register me as a user too. The alarms are super loud so there's no doubt about the direction in which the thing is hidden, and you can push a spot on the Tiles to reverse-search for your phone too! So these two items covered all three of the commonly misplaced items (as long as one of the items was in his hands). We haven't had to use them for outside of the house purposes yet, but I'm sure it'll be just as helpful with the app if that time should come." —Carley

    Get it from Tile for $24.99

    23. A dry shampoo spray that helps absorb excess oil and give your roots so much oomph that you won't have to come up with some elaborate hairdo to hide them (or go through the whole shebang of washing your hair again).

    Promising review: "This literally changed my life. I was one of those people who used to complain about needing to wash my hair DAILY. I have thin, light blonde hair. I looked greasy and unkempt after one day, not even taking into consideration working out or sweating. But now?! A whole new world. I shampoo my hair in the shower on Sundays, just rinse my hair in the shower after days I do high-intensity sweaty exercise (three to five days per week), and use this in my hair every morning. It fluffs it, gives it volume, and makes it look brand-new. I honestly can't believe how much this changed everything. Now my hair can look smooth and straight because I don't need to wash, dry, then straighten every morning (what a time suck!). Now I just straighten and use dry shampoo. I've used the extra time in mornings to improve my makeup routine, take my dog on longer walks, etc. AND I look more put together at work. Get this stuff. Conserve water. Never look back." —Eemn83

    Get it from Amazon for $6.80.

    Pssst — Batiste also sells dry shampoos for specific hair colors and in different scents!

    24. An eyebrow tint to semi-permanently dye your brow hairs for up to six weeks, helping either fill them in or to dye over gray hairs just as effectively as a salon tint would — a lot of reviewers swapped this for doing brow makeup completely, saving a whole step in their morning routine.

    Reviewer's brows before the tint, during the tint, and after, to show the subtly more filled in, darker effect

    Promising review: "Saved me so much money! I used to get my brows tinted every three to four weeks at my friend's salon and loved the way they looked but didn’t love paying $20 each time. I bought this kit and have managed to tint my brows four times with just one capsule and they look great! I also used it to dye my boyfriend's mustache for a costume and it looked pretty good!" —Anna

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

    25. A mini steamer for your clothes that heats up in literally a minute and a half, so you can skip the lengthy process of pulling out the iron and ironing board and being mega careful not to burn anything.

    Promising review: "Love this little steamer! For the price, you can’t beat it. I use it almost daily. My old one was a different brand and would randomly quit in the middle of steaming and need to heat up again. This one has not done that at all, keeps going strong day after day." —LoveLeoCustomCrafts

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of this mini steamer for more deets!!

    26. A hair-finishing cream for taking care of those little wisps and flyaways that don't quite make it into your ponytail, so you don't have to worry about redoing it 15 times to get it ~just right~.

    Psst — people with curlier and natural hair types who like laying edges also swear by this 24-hour edge gel for $13.99 on Amazon (BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out, "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna").

    Promising review: "I normally have a lot of baby hairs around my ears that won’t go up or back into a ponytail so I’ve hated wearing ponytails. But for my job I have to have my hair up. Hairspray never quite did the trick. I saw this stuff and decided I needed to give it a go. It is AMAZING. I swipe this stuff through and it lasts all day. And it doesn’t dry to a crunch like hairspray. Plus, I don't look like a grease ball! If you have problems with those little pesky hairs or have a dancer this stuff would be excellent!" —Jaycee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    27. A necklace detangling clasp so you can layer your favorite pieces over an outfit the exact way you want them without having to pull them apart like bickering siblings every morning.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Theresa Rose is a California-based Etsy shop established in 2007 that specializes in custom birthstone and personalized jewelry gifts.

    Kayla Suazo, an editor here at BuzzFeed, tried these out and loved 'em: "I recently bought a couple of these and had one of those very real, WHY DIDN'T I BUY ONE OF THESE SOONER moments. They do an amazing job at keeping your necklaces from tangling as you wear them, and I love that I can layer multiple of my favorites at once. I am forever sold on these."

    Get it from Theresa Rose on Etsy for $12.49+ (available in gold and silver, and with two, three, or four clasps).

    28. A nifty Beard Bib that suctions itself to the mirror and helps trap beard hairs before they hit the floor, saving you the time and effort of collecting the hair that missed the sink every morning.

    A model trimming their beard over a plastic "bib" that is attached to their neck and suctioned to the bathroom mirror

    Promising review: "Finally bought this for my husband and I’m not sure why I waited so long. He would always shave over a towel, ball the towel up to 'clean it up when he got home from work,' forget to tell me, and then I’d see it on the bathroom floor or counter, pick it up to throw it in the washer (unaware of what surprise was inside), and beard hair would go EVERYWHERE. My husband can fully shave and then he basically has a full beard again three days later, so this happened more times than I’d like to admit. PEOPLE, DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND BUY THIS NOW!" —Ashley Flaga

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    29. A Lay-n-Go cosmetic bag – it fans out to become a mat, saving you both the time of poking through your cabinets to find your beauty prods *and* the hassle of putting them all back in the morning.

    Lay-n-Go / YouTube / Via

    Promising review: "I was tired of fumbling around in my cosmetics case and saw this. I was skeptical, but...WOW! On my recent two-week trip to Europe, with constant laying out and packing up, this item was wonderful. I could find what I wanted quickly, right away. Packing up was just a matter of pulling the drawstring. At first I wasn’t sure about changing to this bag, but now I could not do without it." —Mojosharkey

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in 12 colors).

    30. A compact Dash air fryer that's *perfect* for quick breakfasts — reviewers love that there's no waiting to preheat and no oil required, so the instant you think to yourself, "Hmm, maybe I want to have a side of sausages!" your wish it its command.

    Promising review: "Best addition to our kitchen in a long time. For the price you can’t beat this. It is definitely a one- or two-person item, so if you have a family buy a bigger one. Fries and tots in 15 minutes and no preheat!!! Even cookie dough in a matter of minutes! Love it!" —Amazon Customer

    The bar on this is adjustable to fit most treadmills, with a height adjustable pole and a laptop tray equipped with nylon straps to keep your laptop secure. It's also super portable in case you want to ever use it at a gym.

    Promising review: "This monitor mount is pretty great. I couldn’t find anything similar to it. I like that you can adjust the height of the platform as well as width of the frame bars. I am considering getting a stationary bike, so it will be easy to move it if needed. I was worried it will be hard to assemble, based on some reviews, but it wasn’t hard at all. Worth the money!" —Ekaterina Potapova

    34. A trusty Tide To Go stain removing pen, because if there is one law of the universe, it's that if you're in a rush, you will dribble yogurt on your nice top. This is a forever staple in preventing the extra ten minutes of picking out a new outfit.,

    Promising review: "These were a lifesaver. I was walking to the bus and decided it was a great decision to drink coffee while walking. Like a scene from an infomercial, I spilled coffee all over my white shirt. Yes, the classic coffee on the white shirt. Luckily I had one of these in my bag (I put one in each of my most-used purses in anticipation of my clumsiness). I went into a store bathroom and quickly scrubbed the Tide To Go on my shirt. All of the coffee blobs went away and once the awkward wet splotches dried up, my shirt was perfectly white again. You've got yourself a big fan, Tide." —NAD
