    30 Things That Are Sure To Make Life A Bit Less Tedious

    These items prove adulting doesn't have to be so bad.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

    1. A Burst Oral Care electric toothbrush that doesn't have to be plugged in and holds its charge for up to a month. Better yet, Burst will send brush head refills right to your door every 90 days so you don't even have to worry about reordering. 🦷

    2. A Revlon hot air brush which makes styling your own hair a cinch. I hate blow drying my hair SO much, I will go outside — no matter the temperature — with soaking wet hair instead. That was until this gadget came into my life. Now, all I need is five minutes (I *do* have a pretty short hair) and I leave with a perfect blowout!

    3. A Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure game so instead of jogging, sprinting, and high-kneeing your way through a local park, you can jog, sprint, and high-knee your way through a ✨ fantasy world ✨ where your workout helps defeat enemies.

    4. An automatic water fountain for those with picky pets who refuse to drink from a regular bowl. My cats drank solely from *my* water glasses until I picked this up and now I only have to wash/refill it once a week!

    5. A flexible EveryPlate subscription so you can forget about cooking after a long day at work and enjoy a homestyle meal for less than five bucks.

    6. An entertaining activity book that can help you take a step back from anxious thoughts by reading step-by-step instructions on how to build an underground bunker instead.

    7. A rotating timer so you can master the Pomodoro technique (25 minutes of work and then a short break) and be more productive whether it's at the office or at home.

    8. A measuring cup made specifically for semi-solid ingredients like peanut butter, honey, shortening, and brown sugar. This way, you'll get every last bit into your bowl instead of all over your fingers.

    9. A teensy tiny handheld vacuum because if one thing is certain, it's way more fun to clean your desk/coffee table/counter with this than whatever non-ladybug method you had in mind.

    10. A mini waffle maker so you can push pause on your day and treat yourself to a warm snack that's way more exciting than an Eggo.

    11. A flat outlet plug that can be placed behind furniture or in areas where you'd like to eliminate some cord clutter.

    12. A wrinkle-release spray because you left your clothes in the dryer overnight again and we both know you're not gonna iron them.

    13. A sloth to-do pad so you can keep track of errands, appointments, and those tiny little tasks you can't convince yourself do unless it's written down on a piece of paper and you get to highlight it after. (Man, do I love highlighting.)

    14. A snow broom which, as it turns out, is WAY easier than using your arm to wipe off your windshield. I cringe just at the *thought* of snow going down my sleeve. 🥶

    15. A flexible lighter so you don't have to risk third-degree burns by reaching your entire hand into a nearly finished candle. Bonus: it's USB rechargeable ⚡️

    16. An address and password log book because look, I know the computer forgot your password but acknowledging that isn't about to solve the issue. Instead, write down all of your logins in this book and just be sure to keep it somewhere safe, huh?

    17. An Instant Pot that can whip up meals in 20 minutes or less! I'm not too fond of the kitchen myself but I have made pulled BBQ chicken, teriyaki chicken and rice, and mashed potatoes in one of these with little effort.

    18. A touchless vacuum ready to suck up whatever has found its way to your floor including Cheerios, dust, cat fur, and loose change because let's be real — if it's not a quarter, you're probably not picking it up.

    19. A set of Miracle-Gro spikes which will revive your potted plants with all of the micronutrients they've been missing. They're safe to use with any indoor plant and work for a full two months.

    20. A color switch brush cleaner so you can switch between eye shadow palettes without having to pull out a new brush. Just take the one you're using and give it a little swipe on the sponge to remove any leftover pigment.

    21. A pair of microfiber duster slippers which turn your midnight run to the fridge into a mini cleaning session. Whoops, did you spill a little milk while taking a bite of your cookie? No worries — just give it a lil' wipey wipe.

    22. An automatic lavender-scented toilet bowl cleaner you can click into place and then forget about. Each one works for roughly two weeks and doesn't just release a fresh scent, but prevents icky toilet rings from forming.

    23. A makeup-erasing towel so you can wipe away the day even if you've already climbed into bed. Trust me, your skin will thank you!

    24. A self-cleaning Litter-Robot because as much as I love my cats, there are few household chores I hate more than scooping their poop. Even worse, the little devils seems to enjoy watching me do it.

    25. A fruit-infuser water bottle capable of helping you realize your resolution to stay hydrated. Plus, you can make your own spa water which will feel like a lil' treat (for at least a week until you forget to buy more mint and cucumbers).

    26. A sock organizer because your socks seemingly disappear into thin air when left unattended. Mixing and matching is fun until you have a pair of low-rise sneakers that give away your secret.

    27. A paw-cleaning device so you can quickly and easily wash off Spot's paws before he does his best Jackson Pollock impression all over your white linen couch.

    28. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes because despite the fact that you have 17 different cleaners under your kitchen sink, it is SO much easier to reach for a one-and-done wipe.

    29. A set of extra-deep-pocket sheets that will stay on your mattress the whole night through so you don't have to start every day wrestling with your fitted sheet!

    30. And a pet hair-removal glove because your living room is starting to look like the wild, wild West — only with fur balls instead of tumbleweeds. Chances are your pet will enjoy the massage, too.
