    You're going to be glad to have purchased a box of washing machine cleaning tablets — trust me on this.

    1. A flexible cleaning brush that'll pull all of the hard-to-reach pieces of lint out of your dryer. I truly can't think of anything more satisfying, TBH.

    2. A wet/dry vacuum you can use to literally suck up anything from nails and water to bits of wood and leaves. You name it, it can be cleaned up with this vac.

    4. A humidity alert hub and sensors to place near your washing machine, dishwasher, under your sinks and in your basement to alert you if there is ever a leak. Better safe than sorry!

    5. Shelf liner that'll provide a nonslip padding inside your cabinets, closets, and drawers so your belongings can be safely stowed away.

    6. Felt pads to place under all of your furniture to ensure you don't immediately scratch the wood floors you just paid a ton of money to have stained and refinished.

    7. A bamboo burner cover that'll magically add an extra space for chopping up veggies in your kitchen — it'll feel like you *poof* doubled your counter space!

    8. A frame for your peephole for any diehard Friends fans, because you and I both know you always wish you could've lived in Monica's epic apartment. All you'll have to do next is paint your door purple!

    9. Chalkboard paint, so you can write your DIY plans right on the wall instead of forever searching for that scrap paper you scribbled on that morning.

    10. A curtain of twinkle lights that'll make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?

    11. A pouch filled with eucalyptus and lavender to leave your shower smelling like a luxurious day at the spa. I can't imagine anything more pleasant, TBH.
