1.A stainless-steel coffee filter so you can finally say goodbye to paper filters, which just create unnecessary waste and strain on your wallet. Plus, this filter is actually designed to make your coffee taste BETTER — if you can even imagine such a glorious thing.
2.A set of Rubbermaid food-saver containers to keep all your produce fresh and ripe for a few extra days. Time and money savings aside, maybe these'll actually motivate you to make something yummy with the veggies you buy, rather than ignoring their existence in the back of your fridge and ordering takeout instead... It's actually sad how guilty I am of this.
3.A TubShroom drain protector and hair catcher because plumbers can be costly, and constantly using store-bought drain cleaners takes a toll on your wallet AND the environment. It's like ~pouring money down the drain~.
4.A pack of Shout dye-trapping sheets so you can wash your colored *and* white laundry in the same load. Fewer washes = lower utility bills. And, let's be real, who actually wants to sit around and sort their clothes?? Not me. Big no. These are a win.
5.A cold brew maker because your coffee habit shouldn't break the bank! Plus, staying home and channeling your inner barista is *way* more fun than picking up the same boring mobile order day after day, imo.
6.And! A pack of Neuro energy gum that'll help you refuel without making another coffee run. The gum is packed with green tea caffeine, vitamin B6 (for your mood), and vitamin B12 (for your energy) — all of which combine to help you feel energized and prevent your afternoon crashes.
7.The Spatty, so you can get every last drop out of your cosmetic and personal care items before breaking down and forking over a small fortune to replace them.
10.A charcoal toothpaste to brighten your smile without changing up your regular brushing routine. Whitening sessions can get expensive, and strips can be pesky to apply everyday — this makes whitening mindless AND cheap.
11.A set of reusable zipper storage bags you can rinse out and use over and over again. They come in snack, sandwich, and gallon sizes and can be used for everything from keeping produce fresh to a handy weekend toiletry bag.
12.A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo to reduce brassiness and lighten your hair in less than three minutes! In other words, this helps you maintain your platinum blonde hair for as long as possible, delaying your next ~pricey~ trip to the salon so you have time to save up some extra pennies.
13.A habit-tracking calendar so you can get 👏 your 👏 spending 👏 under 👏 control. This'll help you track your short- and long-term goals and be better about tracking your personal finances. It might even help you do grown-up things, like pay *more* than the minimum payment on your credit card bill!
14.A pack of cable savers to protect your chargers, aux cords, headphones, and all your other precious cords from fraying and becoming damaged. We thought the electronics themselves were expensive, but the real racket is how costly the charging cords are.
15.A stainless-steel wine stopper so you can keep your half-finished bottle tasting fresh and delicious for up to 10 days after you pop the cork.
16.Or a bottle of red wine stain remover if you tend to spill more than you sip. So please, stop panicking — this spray *actually works* and will prevent you from having to pay thousands of dollars to replace your carpet. Everybody makes mistakes!
17.A roll of eco-friendly, reusable bamboo towels, because paper products are low-key expensive? Using the ceramic plates in your cupboards and your REAL silverware can also save you a lot of money in the long run.
18.A bottle of Acure brightening facial scrub to brighten your complexion in one easy step. You don't need a regimen with 1,000 steps and products to get you that ~glow~ you're chasing. This'll exfoliate away excess oil and treat breakouts while bringing out your clear complexion underneath.
19.A multi-purpose cleaning solution that'll help renew everything from rust to burnt pans to stained tubs to worn-down sinks and EVEN Sharpie stains!? No matter what it is, this magical substance will make it look brand-new — period.
20.A key-hiding case so you never get locked out of your house ever again. Hiding a key under the doormat or in a plant is SO last century. 🙄🔑
21.A pack of wool dryer balls that'll reduce your overall drying time, which = a lower utility bill. It'll also just make your clothes super soft and wrinkle-free!
22.A mini knife sharpener so you don't have to buy a fancier, more expensive set just because you're experiencing some dullness in your blades. This will cheaply and quickly bring those knives you've had since college back to their sharpest, pointiest selves!
23.Bissell Stomp & Go Cleaning Pads that are equally effective at removing pet hair and stains from your carpet as they are a cathartic activity. Now you can stomp your feet in protest of cleaning your house, while actually being productive and cleaning your house... A true two-for-one deal.
24.An Ecotools makeup brush shampoo to extend the life of your brushes by cleansing out months (OK, years??) of buildup. It'll condition bristles back to their original glory in literally a matter of minutes.
25.A pack of washing machine cleaning tablets because, uh, have you ever cleaned the inside of your washing machine? Did you know that doing so can actually prolong the life of your washing machine? As well as prevent your clothes from smelling and getting damaged? Take care of your washing machines, people — they're not cheap to replace!
26.A handheld garment steamer to care for your garments and keep them looking crispy for as long as possible. You'll even save money from having to get all your clothes pressed at the dry cleaners!
27.A pack of cleaning wipes because, even though you try your best to avoid mud puddles and excess salt in the winter, your boots somehow ALWAYS end up looking like you walked through a swamp in them. 🥴
28.Reusable makeup remover pads that come with a mesh laundry bag so you can simply toss them in the washing machine, and voila! They're economical, eco-friendly, and suitable for all skin types = win, win, win.
29.A candle accessory set because so many people don't know how to properly care for their candles. Trimming the wick and keeping it in the center of the candle can add so much more burn time and will help you justify all those trendy, artisan candles you've been buying lately (which is probably the reason you're broke, and therefore why you're reading this post).
30.A fabric shaver to remove all the pilling on the sweaters you've recently unburied from your closet so you don't have to buy new ones. It also works on sofas, too — and I don't know about you, but a new sofa is NOT in my budget.
31.A toilet bowl ring remover that'll have your toilet shining bright like a diamond, which means you won't have to waste money on those expensive cleaning sprays or a new toilet.
32.A bottle of Old English Scratch Cover so you can actually use that piece of wood furniture you have hiding in a corner somewhere instead of letting it be an unsightly catchall.
33.A stackable bento box that'll encourage you to actually (gasp!) meal prep. Cooking your meals at home can save you soooooo much money, rather than ordering takeout every night. And these containers will allow you to make pretty, Instagramable meals for the week.
34.Zymox Pet Ear Cleaner to keep your pet's ears looking and feeling healthier than ever. Your pet will never know the satisfying feeling of jabbing a cotton swab into their ear canal, so buying this spray will do them a real solid. It can also help prevent nasty infections and complications down the road that'll undoubtedly result in a hefty bill from your veterinarian.
35.A grout cleaning pen that'll restore your grout tile lines and instantly take your bathroom from drab to fab. After using this pen, that expensive tile you've been thinking about will be able to wait a few years.
36.And an avocado slicing tool you can use to split, pit, and slice just as well as your favorite brunch place — which means you can get that ~avo aesthetic~ without having to pay $16 for a piece of toast.
No tears left to cry but SO much money to be saved... 😭💵
