    1. A cat groomer you can mount on the corner of a wall to provide your cat with all the scratching and grooming their lil' heart desires. It even includes a compartment for storing cat nip! 😻

    It comes with adhesive strips for damage-free mounting, but you can also choose to install it with screws.

    Promising reviews: "Worked great but I needed to buy additional adhesive to get it to stick to the wall. It's good for a cat who feels the need to rub a lot. In fact, if you have that sort of cat, make your life easier and get one of these. You can't train them to stop. I've tried." —R. Noel Burr

    "My cat Gambino Bambino would let you brush him bald!!! He loves to be groomed and comes running whenever the brush comes out. Though we love to accommodate, I know he wanted more. He was constantly rubbing his cheeks and ears on the corner of our walls to get even more scratching. I finally came across this product and knew he would love it! It took a little convincing but once he got the hang of it he’s been loving it! We have one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top of the stairs, and one in the guest room! He is having a great time!!! Very easy to put together and place on the wall." —T. Mangiaracina

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    2. A scalp massager that, despite its scary-looking spikes, will actually be a godsend for your sensitive scalp.

    Promising review: "GREAT INVENTION! Anyone with overly sensitive touch sensations whether you're a kid or adult will think this is an amazing product! It will make washing your hair so much easier. My teen has sensory processing issues and while he's discreet about his problems, he has his challenges. During showers, he's never been able to use his fingernails, fingertips to scrub his scalp so he's always used combs or brushes to help shampoo and rinse out his hair. His fingertips are the most sensitive parts of his body. They are so extremely sensitive that they hurt when he's in the shower and even afterward. This is going to make his daily life so much easier. I bought him two so it will be faster to wash and rinse out his hair." —Bxtf

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three colors).

    3. Some Miracle-Gro plant food spikes so you don't have to buy new houseplants every spring, because you continue to fail as a plant parent. These are foolproof and literally feed your plants for you.

    Promising review: "I love these. They make it so much easier to keep my plants alive. Wish I had found these sooner, before killing a numerous amount of plants." —Michelle Morrell

    Get a pack of 48 spikes from Amazon for $2.98+ (available in a 24 or 48-pack).

    4. A jewelry cleaning pen that's basically just as easy (and fun!) as a coloring book. Plus, it'll have your jewels shining brighter than when you bought 'em.

    Promising review: "I have absolutely no idea how this works so well and so quickly. You wet the brush tip and turn the silver end until the blue cleaning stuff comes out onto the brush applicator. You then quickly and very easily turn your jewelry from old and cloudy looking to sparkly and full of life again. Previously I had been using a tub of cleaner, where I would need to let my ring sit in it for at least half an hour, if not more. This was so much faster and so much easier, I’ll never go back to using the tub. I really wish I took before and after photos, such a difference!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $7.82.

    5. And this pumice cleaning stone to keep your toilet shining bright, too. Reviewers say it takes about 20 minutes of elbow grease, but it's worth it to see those pesky rings disappear.

    Promising review: "I love, love this pumice stone! No, pumice stones are not my life, but this one makes my life easier. The toilet in our guest bathroom had a constant black ring from the water. I spent too much time and too much elbow grease so as not to be embarrassed. This has a great handle and a fine pumice which does the job quickly and perfectly. No muss, no fuss!" —Yvonne

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in packs of one or two).

    6. A pet hair broom and squeegee designed to extract all the pet hair that has *unwelcomely* interwoven itself with the fibers of your carpeting.,

    Promising review: "WOW! I did not think I would LOVE this as much as I do! I thought, 'ehh, it will be alright,' and if it doesn’t work great on carpets or hardwood, I’ll use the squeegee side when I wash my car. The handle is made of a lightweight alloy, which makes it easy to tote around the house. But the broom — holy smokes. We have a long-haired Australian Shepard and he sheds badly. I sweep and vacuum multiple times per day. This has made life so much easier and is incredible to use on carpet and hardwood!! Now, I am not reaching for any other broom, and my vacuum thanks me for getting all this hair pulled up before vacuuming (before I was emptying the canister twice per room). LOVE IT (and didn’t think I’d love a rubber broom)!" —Alexandra Friedman

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98+.

    7. A brush shampoo to extend the life of your brushes by cleansing out days (OK, months??) of buildup. It'll condition bristles back to their original state in literally a matter of minutes.

    Promising review: "My life got much easier with this brush shampoo. It cleans brushes fast, it is not too soapy and smells just right!" —Amy Golovan

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    8. A carpet stain remover spray that'll lift away the toughest stains with grace and ease. Red wine? ✔️ Pizza sauce? ✔️ Pet stains? ✔️ You get the idea.

    Promising review: "Spots magically disappear. My old carpet has been through the mill. Having fostered rescue dogs, I ended up with a filthy, stained carpet. I've spent hours on my hands and knees trying to remove the stains to no avail. Folex has done the trick and all I had to do was spray and watch the spots disappear. I can take up the area rug I was using to cover the nasty carpet and put it away once and for all. In fact, I'm getting another bottle of this just to have on hand. Thanks, Folex. You made my life so much easier." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.32.

    9. A drain snake designed to go where no living human should ever have to: deep in your shower drain. There's no telling WHAT lives down there, but nonetheless, this snake will eat it all up so you can get back to taking showers without having to stand in several inches of water.

    Promising review: "This is 1000x easier than trying to do it yourself with tweezers! I don't know how I've made it this far in my life not knowing this was a thing but what normally takes at least 30 minutes took just two!" —Taylor

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes).

    10. Conversation cards for couples to help make awkward conversations, well, less awkward! Many reviewers have noted how the cards have strengthened their relationship by allowing them to work on their communication skills and be honest with one another. How sweet!

    Promising review: "I got this to try to get some questions answered that need to be brought up to make the relationship better. One of my friends told me about this. He had got it during the early period of his engagement. This game made it easier to talk about deeper topics and to get the conversation started without feeling weird or uncomfortable. I bought it for vacation; we had an eight-hour drive and I figured it would help pass the time. At the end of the drive I felt a lot closer to my boyfriend and I was happy that we could talk about the difficult questions. I recommend this for all serious couples!!!" —princezzredd

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    11. A pack of washing machine cleaner tablets, because how can you get your clothes clean if the giant metal cylinder you put them in isn't free of dirt and grime?? The answer: you can't.

    Promising review: "I never knew how tough it would be to clean my HE washer. It is a never-ending battle. Life is a little easier now that I can toss in a tab and have it do most of the work for me." —Maggie Dennis

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    12. A compression therapy eye mask that'll have you waking up feeling refreshed and ready to start your day. It's designed to mitigate headaches, migraines, and eyestrain.

    The light-blocking massaging beads inside the mask gently conform around your eyes, and the cross-stitching prevents those beads from putting too much pressure on your delicate eyes. You can also chill the mask in the fridge before use to provide a more soothing sensation.

    Promising review: "This mask has made my life so much easier. I struggle with migraines every day and having a cooling mask that I don’t have to hold and can fall asleep with is perfect for me. My body runs hot, so this lasts about three hours until I have to put it back into the freezer. Highly recommend!!" —Ashley Oaks

    Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

    13. A set of cable clips — which means the days of nearly falling out of bed trying to reach your phone charger because it disappeared behind your nightstand are OVER.

    Promising review: "I love these cable clips and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an easy way to organize cables! It sounds cheesy but they have made my life so much easier. I have one attached to the back of my bedside table in my bedroom and two on my desk at work. It makes my desk look neat and organized and is also extremely functional. I don’t have to worry about cords getting in the way or putting something like a coaster on top of them to keep them from falling behind furniture anymore. The price point is incredibly cheap for such a quality product and the amount that you get! I’m very happy with my purchase and would definitely buy more if I found more places in my home or office that I could use them!" —Kayla Carroll

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $7.97.

    14. A foot file you can use to sand down those dry, cracked heels of yours. Baby-soft feet, here you come!

    Promising review: "Amazing product. Where have you been all my life? I've used sand planes all my life and this is so much easier. But yes, go easy the first time because you may exfoliate too much if you're used to the sandpaper ones." —icandyvan

    Get it from Amazon for $11.45.

    15. A compact cold brew maker because your iced-coffee habit shouldn't break the bank.

    Promising review: "I’m new to the cold brew world, but this made my life a lot easier. It makes enough coffee for me to have a six-oz. coffee every day for about a week. Don’t forget you don’t need that much cold coffee to begin with since it’s a pretty strong flavor so this pitcher will last you a long time in the fridge. Stayed tasty for two weeks in my fridge." —A. Hizam

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two sizes).

    16. A multi-purpose cleaner that'll wipe away grease and burnt food, leaving your stovetop looking shinier than when you bought it — with minimal effort required.

    Promising review: "I was using another cooktop cleaner and decided to try this one. What a huge difference!! I have a white glass top stove and it is a lot of work to keep it clean. I always had to scrub and most times use a razor blade to clean it. This was half the effort!!! And I like the smell also. It's always great when you find a product that makes your life easier." —LindaPBFL

    Get it from Amazon for $13.38.

    17. A set of packing cubes to make packing for trips and organizing your out-of-season clothing SO much easier.

    The set comes with one small, one medium, one large, and one extra-large cube and a laundry bag.

    Promising review: "This has been a lifesaver in my travels!! Not only is it easier to pack, but it's also easier to store clothes inside, like having an organized closet inside your suitcase. What I usually do is I pack different types of clothing on each cube, then I bring them out to the hotel of the place we're traveling to and have them inside the drawers, and when it's time to pack to go back, I'd just close them and put them in my suitcase. They're soft so I can store all of them in the smallest one and put them in my closet." —Monica Hine

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 13 colors).

    18. A ~wildly popular~ purple shampoo that'll help prevent your platinum hair from getting prematurely brassy. Now you can schedule your salon appointments further apart and save some $$.

    Promising review: "FIVE STARTS ALL AROUND!!! I'm absolutely impressed. 😩 I wanna cry! My color will probably fade as always, but it’s so much easier using this instead of going through the entire toning process! I’ve been a blonde for four years and burned inches on inches of hair and I'm still learning as I am NO professional. But I am absolutely astonished by how amazing this stuff is. It's definitely top of the line and will be used from now on. 💯" —Miya

    Get it from Amazon for $13.67+ (available in three sizes).

    19. A pack of reusable grocery bags so we can kiss those single-use plastic bags from the supermarket GOODBYE, once and for all.,

    Promising review: "I purchased these bags because I have quite a walk from my garage to my house. These bags are AMAZING! I stuff them full and they never tear. I also get water by the gallon and these bags hold them. They make my life easier!! Try these bags, you will love them!" —MB

    Get a set of five bags from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in six color sets).

    20. A RFID-blocking travel wallet to keep your IDs, credit cards, (!?) neatly tucked away. It'll make finding the right thing A LOT easier than rummaging through a giant purse.

    It features seven credit card slots, one ID card slot, one SIM slot, a boarding pass pocket, a pen holder, a key ring, one passport holder that fits up to two passports, a zipper pocket for money and coins, and even a cellphone pouch.

    Promising review: "This is a really cute (lots of compliments) and practical wallet. It has made it so much easier to travel because I can just hold it in my hand as I go through airport security. Love the RFID-blocking feature as that is so critical today especially with travel to large cities. I find it a little bulky with my phone in it but that's my preference. Works great with everything else including passport and travel tickets, etc." —GA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 34 colors).

    21. And this honeycomb organizer that'll ALSO help you find what you need, when you need it. Your drawers are about to look Pinterest perfect. ✨

    Promising review: "This makes everything so much easier. I ordered two of them to fit in one of my draws and I love them!!" —ADS123

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    22. An eyeliner stamp designed to give you a perfect cat eye in seconds. Now you don't have to waste time and hassle with trying to get them even on both sides!


    You'll receive two pens — one for your right eye and one for your left.

    Promising review: "I don’t ever write reviews, but I had to take a minute to let y’all know about this eyeliner! ❤️I hardly have time to do my makeup anymore (because of a baby) and I wanted something to make ‘life easier’. I am beyond impressed. It’s cruelty-free and vegan! Not to mention it was only $13! Say WHAAAT?!" —Angelica

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    23. Nonstick oven liners to prevent any spills from burning up at the bottom of your oven and triggering your smoke alarms during your weekly Zoom meeting with your boss.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for any kitchen. This is so much easier to clean than the oven itself. It saves so much time, effort, and is a great price for doing all of these things. I highly recommend this." —Ben

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. A cabinet door organizer so your awkwardly shaped plastic wrap and cutting boards can have a home of their own.,

    Promising review: "This thing made my life so much easier. Instead of trying to shove all my tinfoil and sandwich bag boxes into one drawer I can now put them all in here. Saves space and fits great over cabinets! And, it’s super easy to put together." —Maggie Hundshamer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    25. And Glisten Disposer Cleaner to scrub away tough grunge and odor-causing build-up from sidewalls, blades and under the splashguard with its oh-so-satisfying foaming formula.

    Promising review: "I got a sample pack of this when I had a new diposer installed and it worked well. I had previously been cleaning the disposer with frozen lemons, baking soda, and vinegar. This is so much easier and it smells great. I love how the blue foam puffs back up in the sink as it works." —Tisha

    Get it from Amazon for $4.10+.
