My husband and I are so happy about it because now we don't misplace our keys anymore.

Promising review: "I get really bad motion sickness, especially during takeoff and landings in an airplane. The first thing I do after boarding a plane is make sure I have an emesis bag. I recently wore these wristbands on a trip with lots of turbulence and I'm so glad I was wearing these. I felt nowhere near what I usually feel like.

12. A stainless-steel multipurpose scooper, so you can collect veggies after chopping faster than you can kiss your fingers.

Btw, its grippy handle is convenient for both righties *and* lefties! Plus its edge is thin enough to scrape up things like shallots (which, as we know, are super annoying to transfer). AND it's dishwasher safe.Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this bench scraper. I am a pastry chef and I use this literally every day. The handle is somewhat cushioned and feels nice in your hand and the edge is slightly tapered so it has some good cutting ability. It picks up quite a bit of product off your work table to put in a bowl, mixer, or the trash. Anyone at work that borrows it, loves it! This is a keeper." —ChrystaGet it from Amazon for $7.99.

14. A challenging five-by-five speed cube that'll offer *almost* free entertainment and hopefully also bragging rights.

Promising review: "This cube is a beast! I highly recommend this cube puzzle if you are very confident with your puzzle-solving abilities. The cube invokes higher intuition abilities to solve the centers and edges than a four-by-four, but once you get the hang of it, with practice, it is quite simple and very enjoyable to solve. The cube turns smoothly and hasn't ever popped on me." —Drummer52895Get it from Amazon for $4.50 (available in three colors) or a similar product from Walmart for $9.99.

Lots of people ask me what curling iron I use and they're so surprised about how much this costs. I've had this curling iron for almost three years and it hasn't broken!" —Mika

Promising review: "My very expensive earbuds died and I just didn't want to pop another $50–$80 to replace them so I took a chance on these. I have been very impressed with the sound quality and noise isolation. The noise isolation is so good that I don't have to wear headphones over the earbuds when I mow as I did with the expensive pair. The silicon ear pieces are also very comfortable. I can wear the earbuds for hours with no discomfort. The bass is very impressive and also better than the expensive pair!" —QuothravenGet them from Amazon or Walmart for $9.99 (available in six colors).

I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef, and I sharpened it at work, and wow my knife was like, sharp like a samurai sword!

Not to mention, it's a popular choice for keeping hair shiny and healthy while you sleep! No more snagging strands while you toss and turn. Promising review: "I bought this for my hair and definitely noticed a difference! I used to wake up with tangles and severe bedhead (frizziness etc.), but not anymore. Now I'm able to go to work without even brushing my hair in the morning (shhh). The color is very nice and matches my satin sheets that I bought separately." —TabithaGet it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 21 colors) or a similar product from Walmart for $9.14.

26. A pack of earring support patches for protecting stretched lobes from further elongating and allowing you to finally wear heavy earrings in comfort.

amazon.com

They're really just small, clear oval stickers! You slap 'em on your ear, insert the earring, and presto: your ear is like new.

Promising review: "These are fantastic! I'm in my 20s, but thanks to wearing heavier earrings than I should have when I was a teen and due to one of my earlobes being pierced a bit lower than normal, I thought I would never be able to wear heavier earrings again since my lobe is stretched a bit low. But these really work and now I can wear earrings that might weigh down my earlobes! I can definitely feel the difference with these on — they really take the load off your lobes. They also stick really well! They can definitely stick on for a couple days." —Aly

28. A silky square scarf, because accessorizing shouldn't cost an entire closet's worth of clothes, but it should transform a whole outfit.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This scarf is fabulous! I love it. The fabric is luxurious, and the design is reminiscent of Hermès scarves. This is because of the detailed, quality artwork, the vibrant colors, and the intricate design. The size of this one is great. It's big enough to wear cowboy style or as a hijab, but not so oversized that there is a bunch of fabric." —Msamyverner

Get it from Amazon for $3.15 (available in nine colors).

29. A three-piece peeler set that'll inspire you to throw away your takeout menus and learn how the heck to "julienne."

They all serve a different purpose! The swivel peeler is great for tougher veggies like carrots, while the serrated peeler is best for softer foods like tomatoes. The julienne peeler juliennes fruits and veggies faster than a knife could. Promising review: "These peelers are very durable and seem like they'll last forever! The comfort grip handles are an added bonus and will make me not hate peeling potatoes! I also love that they come in multiple colors! It brings a little brightness to such a dull task!" —HLents Get them from the Tasty collection at Walmart for $7.97.

30. A pack of pimple patches for zapping zits before they can do damage (or before you can start picking). Dermatologist copays have NOTHING on these little miracles.

amazon.com

These hydrocolloid helpers summon bacteria and debris from deep under pimples so by the time you remove it, the blemish is g o n e.

Promising review: "This is the most incredible thing I have ever discovered. Yes, they work. Yes, you are sitting at home and you don’t believe me. Yes, I was you. But they simply do. I put a patch on a zit (I get whiteheads) even when they are under my skin. It sucks all the gunk out. No scars. No picking. These are little miracles and I will never be without them. Spend five dollars. It is the best money you will ever spend on your face. I put one on a zit that was under my skin last night — zit is gone, and the patch is full of gunk." —Amazon Customer
