What's The Best Practical Thing You've Purchased Recently?

May this be the year we actually get products we need and want.

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. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

I, like many of us, am guilty of treating myself to some not-so-necessary items (except my candles, OK? Those don't count). However once in a while I surprise myself and actually want to invest in something practical — and when I *do* it's quite satisfying!

So, before my next impulse shopping spree, I want your advice. Spill the tea and fill me in on what the best practical purchase you've made has been.

Was it a stylish marble-print desk with two areas for storage for all the odds 'n' ends you've somehow accumulated while working from home?

Did you buy a rechargeable lighter so you'll never have to try (and fail) to light a match again? No one enjoys nearly-burnt finger tips.

Or maybe you have something like a Trade Coffee Subscription that provides you with beans that are *so* delicious and you don't have to leave the house to get 'em?

Whatever practical purchase you're most proud of, I want to hear about it! Tell us in the comments below (and leave a photo if you feel inclined!) for the chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
