Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A TubShroom that'll do all the work for you and help you ditch showering in standing water. It neatly catches hair and product residue so your drains stay unclogged, and it's **super** easy to clean and maintain.

    2. And! A cult-favorite drain snake if you need to unclog your drains *first*. Its flexible barbed wand will make the process as quick and pain-free as possible *and* you hopefully won't have to do it again for quite some time.

    3. A storage bag bean chair so you have a clever way to both encourage your kids to clean up after themselves *and* avoid living amongst piles and piles of toys.

    4. A pet hair–removal glove to easily grant yourself an actually fur-free living space. Now you can protect your home from furry takeovers with just a few swipes of your hand. This + a normal belly rub = an effortlessly clean space.

    5. A pack of toilet cleaning gel for maintaining a clean toilet with minimal effort. This'll live on the side of the bowl and quickly become your *number two*. Meaning: it cleans every time you flush — you're free from any dreaded tasks.

    6. A simple dryer vent cleaning kit and brush (that you can attach to a power drill for extra efficiency), because this'll remove years worth of lint from your vents and clothes dryer. It'll reach alllll the way to the back of your vents and machines to totally get rid of buildup — and now it'll stay that way.

    7. A countertop compost bin that'll be *right there* when you need to toss excess food away while cooking — and now you'll have a more ~sustainable~ solution!

    8. Or! A scrap collector you can attach right to the edge of your sink or counter so cleaning up after yourself becomes totally thoughtless. Is that what people mean by ~responsible~ habits?

    9. A pair of microfiber duster slippers to accept that sometimes the only cleaning we want to get done is when walking to the kitchen. Now you can count that pan of brownies as a ~reward~ for cleaning...😉.

    10. A splatter guard for accepting that if your pasta sauce finds its way to your stovetop you are just not going to clean it up. Good thing this'll stop that from ever happening again.

    11. A magnetic microwave plate cover, because this'll a) protect you from the perils of exploding lasagna (not that you would take care of that, anyway) and b) won't take up extra space in your kitchen.

    12. A magnetic key holder that'll never let you lose the most important thing of the day again — even if it's surrounded by clutter. As some of us know all too well, calling the locksmith is EXPENSIVE.

    13. A pack of biodegradable cleaning wipes so your surfaces will be ✨sparking✨ the minute you greet your counters. They'll quickly get rid of dirt and grime, making this the holy grail of lazy cleaning.

    14. A can of Bar Keepers cookware polish to remove food and grease stains before you even have time to say you'll let them "soak" for the next 87 years. Will this work when you....leave the grease there overnight (you were just SO tired weren't you)? Yes, indeed.

    15. A cutlery organizing tray for still essentially tossing your forks into the drawer (this design definitely allows careless placing), but now they'll all stay together.

    16. A hanger stacker, because unless you have this, your clothes are just going to stay in a jumble in your closet. You just couldn't bring yourself to untangle those hangers, could you?

    17. A set of non-stick oven liners that'll catch any *remnants* from your last baking attempt so you don't have to scrub burnt pie filling off your oven (15 years later).

    18. A pack of stainless steel cleaning wipes so you can effortlessly remove fingerprints, residue, watermarks, and grease from the bottom of your sink in just a few swipes. Oh yeah...we're supposed to clean that too...totally forgot.

    19. A shoe organizer great for anything from boots to unused sweaters — cleaning up your space may seem intimidating, but now you can use every procrastinator's go-to tactic: hiding it all under the bed.

    20. An over-the-door shoe organizer to put anything from shoes to cleaning supplies (you have those right?) in a proper place and out of your way. AND now you'll have more free drawer space!

    21. A Scotchgard protector you can spray right on your upholstery (couches, pillows, you name it) to prevent lifelong stains from happening when your friends come over for wine night.

    22. A paw-cleaning device for keeping muddy tracks from even appearing in your home, which you KNOW will sit there until you move. Think of this is the fastest and most effective way of asking Mr. Floof to kindly wipe his paws at the door.

    23. A flat colander, because this'll both catch food scraps and wash fruits and veggies a heck of a lot easier while you cook — meaning you won't let potato peelings sit in your sink for the next seven days and nights.

    24. A set of silicone stove counter gap covers that'll allow you to bake cookies to your heart's content without worrying about crumbs falling through the cracks and attracting ants. Did I scare you enough yet? Cookies + gap cover = no scary ants.

    25. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes so you can conquer scary messes wherever they happened: even on your carpet. The next time you spill nail polish on the rug again (tonight), you can be done with panicked scrubbing before you know it.

    26. A cable and cord box to easily hide unsightly tangled messes with minimal effort. Meaning: "out of sight, out of mind" totally applies to this.

    27. A pack of Glisten garbage disposer cleaner for clearing out all the food scraps you keep shoving down the drain instead of just picking it all up and throwing it in the trash. You know what, I'm tired from just writing that. I understand.

    28. A set of stainless steel curved hooks, because these'll instantly create more space in your closet, counters, pantries, WHEREVER, just by hanging up previous clutter. So long, clattering pots.

    29. A shower curtain with nine mesh pockets that'll keep everything from your loofah to shampoo off the floor — especially useful if you currently have a very cluttered standing shower.

    30. A set of vacuum storage bags so if you really can't get rid of that 2009 clutter you can at least minimize it. Behold: actual room in your linen closet!

    31. An over-the-door hamper to finally STOP throwing your laundry everywhere. This won't even take up floor space — you have zero excuses left.

    32. A Bar Keepers multi-purpose cleaning solution people like to use for tackling rust, burnt pans, stained tubs, worn-down sinks, even Sharpie marks (!!!). It's true, there isn't a mess we haven't seen. But now (for once) there won't be a mess we haven't fixed — quickly and easily.

    33. A drawer divider set, because this'll help you separate all your essentials and keep them in their rightful place. Why, you ask? How many times have you run late because you can't find any bleeping socks? You have your answer.

    34. A wine stain–removing spray that'll prevent any nights out from going *sour* should you spill on your rug, chair, outfit, wherever. I'm not sure who trusted us with a glass of merlot, but now your initial panic is but a distant memory.

    35. A wooden desktop organizer so you can finally accept it's definitely harder to concentrate when surrounded by every single memo you've gotten, ever. This make tidying up one simple step — maybe now you'll organize your inbox? Probably not.

    36. A set of non-slip velvet hangers to easily make your closet look put-together, as well as keep all your clothes off the floor. Oh...there's that silk top....

    37. A bottle of Finish booster powder for restoring dishes with hard water stains or just glasses you've been *getting around* to replacing after many red wine nights. Throw 'em in the dishwasher with this, and they're back to brand spanking new.

    38. A set of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets, because this'll instantly dissolve food residue that's been hanging out for awhile now. This may be why our parents told us to ~rinse~ dishes first...well now we don't have to, anyway.
