    39 Products That'll Help You Complain Less By Solving Some Of Your Problems

    Frequently clogged drains, burnt dinners, and foot blisters are officially problems of the past.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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.

    1. The TubShroom that's famous for a dang good reason — it's just so good at trapping shower hair so well that you'll stop shuddering every time you have to unclog the drain by hand.

    A reviewer showing hair from their shower wrapped around the product's shaft, which looks like the stem of a mushroom

    Promising review: "No seriously, this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged every time we turn around, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time with that spiky stick thing you shove down there and then pull out over and over. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off to be flushed down the toilet. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    2. A pack of bra strap clips because you always find yourself pulling your strap back up when it slides down your shoulder every three seconds.


    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there." —K. Howe

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in nine colors).

    3. This Leaflow device that'll help you get a steady stream of water into the pot — you always somehow manage to misjudge the direction of water and end up spilling it all over your countertop.

    a leaf-shaped funnel that connects to side of pot

    Promising review: "These work so well and blend in quite nicely with my large round planter with various herbs. It’s placed near windows in a corner sink area that is hard to reach easily so these are perfect for directing the water where it's needed." —Diana

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A silicone sink strainer because scraping around the sink with bare hands for wet food bits is always such a (gross) chore. *Shudders*.


    Promising review: "After trying multiple sink strainers, I'm thrilled to report that the OXO strainer is the clear winner. I've had zero problems with food getting stuck to this strainer — even melted cheese falls right off. My last strainer was the wire type, and I spent a good amount of time cleaning and cursing that thing because everything seemed to stick and meld itself to the wire. I've had no problems with this strainer. It stays clean-looking and is easy to clean. I just empty it, wipe it off with a soapy paper towel, rinse, and replace it. Magic!" —housewench

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (also available with a stopper and protector).

    5. These cute chip clips because you're tired of crunching into stale chips after you just didn't make sure the bag was closed tight enough.


    Promising review: "I’m always losing or breaking chip clips. There are a lot of different chip clips being made, but none are this cute. These are simple and affordable, but durable. I tend to just add this onto any order, usually around Christmas time. Also, the cuteness is helpful because it gives me a small point of happiness anytime I see them. They’re small enough to fit inside an overstuffed drawer, yet big and distinct enough to see in that busy drawer. I will definitely purchase them again." —Kevin C

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.99.

    6. A handy reminder so your partner doesn't accidentally give the corgi a second helping of dinner after you've already done so.

    A reviewer showing the device labelled with every day of the week and slides to indicate whether or not you've fed the pet in the morning and afternoon

    Promising review: "This is an awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. This simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had already fed them every morning. Now, I just check to see if the button is switched to green and if not, I feed the dogs. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    7. This anti-blister foot balm because your shoes ALWAYS end up eating away at the backs of your feet, leaving you to limp home.

    A person applying the product, which looks like it has a deodorant-like packaging, to their foot

    Promising review: "All, I am proud to post that I had just completed the 2018 Boston Marathon in torrential rain and hurricane winds. It’s like when you walk from your car to your house door and you are soaked from head to toe — one of the absolute worst conditions for a marathon. A friend recommended body and foot glide, so I coated my entire foot, between the toes and all. I had NO BLISTERS after 26.2 miles in the pouring rain. I cannot rave about this product more. I highly recommend this for bad weather, breaking in new shoes, etc." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    8. A winged eyeliner stamp so you can finally stop spending five minutes (per eye!!!) trying to create the sleekest wing only to mess up and have to start all over again.


    Promising review: "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner but I don’t have a steady hand for it without mistakes. This makes the perfect and consistent wing every time. Love it!" —Julie B

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    9. These egg poaching cups because your every prior attempt at perfectly poached eggs has ended up with ones that are either too runny or too overcooked. The cups keep the cracked egg in place while the boiling water evenly cooks it.,

    Promising review: "These things are fantastic. I am a total klutz in the kitchen — a complete noncook. And yet, two poached eggs came out perfectly the first time I used these little beauties. I sprayed some Pam in each cup, cracked and dropped the egg in, put them in my microwave, covered them with a paper towel, and 60 seconds later, I had two completely delicious, wonderfully done poached eggs. Voila! If I can do it, anyone can. Boy, am I impressed." —Leland C. Sheppard

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $11.97.

    10. A dishwasher magnet to finally put an end to the familiar family bickering about dirty dishes resting among sparkling clean ones.

    The magnet labeled clean on one half and dirty on the other

    Promising review: "I purchased this magnet for my dishwasher to help my family in knowing when the dishwasher was clean vs. dirty. It has also helped me remember to start the dishwasher in the evening since I like to load it during the day and run it at night when water is cheaper (and it provides a soothing white noise for me to sleep to). I love that it has a great magnetic grip to my dishwasher, it doesn’t fall off when I put the lid down. I rotate it without ever removing the magnet from the dishwasher. It is very easy to read and use and looks great. I am very happy with it." —Nicole Durham

    Get it from Amazon for $4.50.

    11. These wine condoms because your wine just never tastes as fresh when you open a bottle and then re-cork it to store it in your fridge. It fits snugly across the top of an open bottle to lock out any air that might try to sneak in.

    The saver, which looks like a condom and a person putting the wine condom over the top of a wine bottle

    Promising review: "This is so good that I had to buy two! Not only are these wine condoms a gift that people will talk about, but they're also a responsible way to keep your wine sealed between drinks. First and foremost, they're reusable. I do want to note though that, like any other condom, a wine condom will break if you're too rough with it. However, if you use common sense while putting one on the bottle and don't try to overstretch it, I doubt you'll have any problems (I haven't had any so far). Personally, I prefer using these to traditional corks when storing white wine because I can keep my bottles sideways in the fridge without fear of any spillage." —Samantha

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $14.97.

    12. A set of sticky-stake insect traps — while you're super excited about your new plant children, they've unfortunately welcomed a host of pesky gnats into your home and you just need to get rid of those suckers. This traps gnats, thrips, and fruit flies.,

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $5.09+ (also available as a pack of 12).

    13. This basic little kitchen timer since every time you try to bake a nice dinner or dessert, you always forget how much time has passed and end up burning everything. It's a small idea that's simple to implement.

    A reviewer holding the small digital timer

    You have the option to either prop the timer on the counter using the built-in stand or mount it on your refrigerator door or other magnetic surfaces.

    Promising review: "Ordered this kitchen timer because it stated the alarm is loud. It certainly is loud! Other alarms either lost their sound or died on me. Even the wind-up ones die over time. I like that it is battery-operated because I have lots of rechargeable batteries. The sound has to be loud enough to hear in the back of my house. My house is rather large and I used to burn a few cookies because I didn't hear the timer I had. I forget to carry it around with me and thought the loud one would be my best bet. My husband complains that it is WAY too loud, but he isn't the cook, so all he has to do is block his ears, run to turn it off, or just go in the garage and play with his toys and leave me alone! After ruining some meals with burned food he should understand the importance of this timer!" —Southern Charm

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in two colors).

    14. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets because you the answer to your grimey, discolored water bottle was simply buying a new one....until that one got all gross too. All you'll need is 15 minutes and you'll have a crystal clean mug.

    A dirty stainless mug that gets filled with water and a cleaning tablet and foams up before looking clean and free of grime

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING!!!!!! It is completely worth the price. You will be AMAZED at how fast it works and how efficiently too. I admit, I was a little skeptical, even with other users posting pictures. For me, it was a try it to believe it. I did and I totally do. It works so well that it has made one of my tea tumblers look better than when I bought it. I would highly recommend this product!" —T. V. Henson

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8+ (also available as a pack of 36).

    15. This flip top you attach to your bottles to make sure you actually get every last drop of product. No more mumbling to yourself about not getting your money's worth when you buy ketchup or barbecue sauce.

    A bottle of honey with leftovers at the bottom and the honey bottle standing upside down on the four-legged flip top so the remaining honey is now easier to pour out

    The kit comes with six dispensing stands, two large size adapters, two medium size adapters, and two small size adapters. Just put the cap on any bottle and flip it over. You'll get SO much more product out with this handy device.

    Promising review: "This is such a great tool for using up every last bit of product and reducing waste. We used this on a bottle of lotion that we thought was empty but got nearly six months out of it when we put this on, we were shocked. I use this for my shampoo and anything else that I can think of." —Felishia Rae

    Get a 12-piece kit from Amazon for $19.99 (also available as 24-piece kit).

    16. A garbage disposal cleaner because you pinch your nose every time you're near the think because of all the muck that's trapped down there. Just plop a tablet into your sink, turn on the water, and watch it fizz and dislodge all that gunk.

    It reaches deep down to get rid of stinky odors but won't totally unclog your backed-up garbage disposal — you'd need a plumber to help with that.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $5.80.

    17. This Verb Energy bar if you've been searching far and wide for a way to up your energy without consuming yet another cup of coffee. It's made with organic green tea to sustain your energy.

    A blueberry oat bar on top of a packaged bar
    Verb Energy

    Promising review: "I absolutely love Verb energy bars! I’m a nursing student and sometimes I don’t have time to make coffee or grab some due to my hectic schedule, these energy bars are my go-to! They’re the perfect pick-me-up! They are worth it!" —Carina

    Get a pack from Verb Energy for $22+ (available in single-flavor packs, packs of two flavors, and packs of four flavors).

    18. A brown sugar-softening bear because every dang time you're in the mood to bake a batch of cookies, your brown sugar has gone hard and it's no longer useable. Just soak this in water for 20 minutes and then place it in your brown sugar.

    The terracotta bear sitting in front of a jar of brown sugar

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $4.50+ (available in packs of one, two, and three and in three styles).

    19. These vacuum-sealed bags since your closet is just a cluttered mess and every time you open it up to grab a t-shirt, you're greeted with an avalanche of pants and tops. A handy pump sucks the excess air out of a bag filled with clothes, which causes the bag (and everything inside it!) to become as compressed as possible.

    Sooo, my closet is a mess. I admit it. And since I promised myself I'd do better, I decided to get these storage bags to see if they'll really give me a neat place to keep off-season clothes without taking up too much space in my room. I folded my clothes and stuffed them in the bag, careful not to fill the bag past the 'STOP' line since the instructions say you could risk re-inflating the bag if you do. I zipped up the bag and used the included vacuum pump to pump out the air, although you can also use a normal vacuum to do this. It took a few minutes, but I watched the bag deflate before my eyes. The flatter the bag becomes, the harder it should be to pump the air out. I stopped once it became really difficult to pull the handle on the pump and marveled at my work. I was pretty dang impressed, TBH. I didn't have any issues with the bag re-inflating and it's been two months so far. Yay for a cleaner closet!!!

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in six-packs of sizes Small–Jumbo).

    20. A guac-lock container to keep the guac you spent time and money making so fresh for so much longer. Now you won't have to wonder where you went wrong and can extend the life of the same batch of guac., Amazon

    Promising review: "I got this for my sister who loves guac and is constantly throwing it out because it goes bad after like a minute. She LOVES it! It was still good after four days in the fridge, and I'm sure it would last longer. So happy it lives up to the hype!" —Jorie C. Sitcer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.37+ (also available as an option with a tray).

    21. This double closet rod because you curse the day you bought a house with an impossibly tiny closet. This'll help you maximize your closet space and create a new place for the all the clothing items that normally just stay crammed onto one rod.

    A reviewer showing how the rod creates a new row for hanging clothes under the existing rod for clothes

    Promising review: "I like everything about this product. It is perfect for me. I had been using the Marie Kondo method for all my pants and leggings for two years. This saves more space and makes my closet look less cluttered. I hung all my thinner pants and leggings under my blouses. Easy to select. I am definitely happier. I gave away the plastic chest of drawers I had in the closet." —Sylvia

    Get it from Amazon for $20.90.

    22. And this microfiber towel-material pillowcase for those times when you've washed your hair but it's still not dry enough for you to sleep on without ruining your pillowcase (these have a waterproof lining).

    Get it from Kitsch for $24.

    23. An accordion organizer perfect for filing away important documents you may want to hold onto. Up until now, you've just been leaving your credit card bills in a pile on the table and always freak out a little when you can't find the statement you're looking for.

    A model taking the slim organizer from a shelf of other organizers

    I bought these for the purpose of organizing my loan and credit card bills and other docs that I definitely don't want to lose. There's not much to it since it's just your standard five-compartment folder, but at least now I know exactly where to find specific letters when I need 'em.

    Promising review: "I bought this to begin organizing my papers towards the end of the academic year, and it has worked perfectly! It doesn't let papers slide around or fly out like a usual folder does. I am also bringing this to Europe with me to organize important traveling documents." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 10 colors).

    24. This nonslip rug pad so you don't go flying every time you step through the front door. Your mom is always nagging you about the dangerous combo of slippery rugs and hardwood floors, and she's right.

    A textured mat under a rug

    Promising review: "This is by far the best rug grip product I have ever purchased, and it surpasses anything you can buy at the store. I have two of these and my rugs have not moved at all, even with a teenager who drags her feet and a beagle that races around the house like a crazy dog. This is the only rug pad that can withstand the wrath of the beagle!" —Bittersweet513

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in three sizes).

    25. A pack of 100 sound-dampening bumpers because the sound of cupboard boards slamming when you're on a phone call just irks you in ways you can't describe.

    A small, circular rubber bumper on the corner of a cupboard

    Promising review: "Funny enough, but this is one of my favorite low-cost upgrades to the house. Our previous dampers were a cloth that came with the cabinets and were getting a bit thin. I thought I would try and upgrade to save on the stress of the hickory doors. Wow was I surprised of the difference of a good bumper. These stick-on very strong but don't ruin the wood if removed. They have a beautiful but solid thud that is not loud but also don't bounce the door or drawer back at you which others might do. There are also so many in the pack that I replaced every bumper in the house, good or bad, and still haven't gone through half the bag. They'll be passed down through the generations!" —Andy Levesque

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.99.

    26. This tube of Versed Dew Point Moisturizing Gel-Cream — every other moisturizer you've tried just left your already-oily skin looking like a greased frying pan and you're tired of having to blot throughout the day.

    The tube of product

    I have this moisturizer and as someone with oily skin, I approve!! Once you squeeze it out of the tube, it looks just like a creamy gel. But once you apply it to your skin, it feels cooling and dries to a soft matte finish (totally wasn't expecting that). Because of that, it doesn't make my face feel excessively oily throughout the day (and I literally wear this all day). I'm also prone to large, painful cystic breakouts and this hasn't aggravated my acne at all. My mom has dry skin — the total opposite of mine — and when she tried some, it hydrated her face enough to the point where she didn't feel like she needed to reapply during the day. This moisturizer seems to strike the perfect balance for the needs of both dry and oily skin!

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite drugstore moisturizers and I can very easily say I will repurchase this again in a heartbeat. The lightweight consistency is perfect for oily skin and summer heat, but also great for anytime you feel the need to add some quick moisture back into the skin. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a lightweight drugstore moisturizer that isn’t outrageously expensive." —Jeremiah62

    Get it from Versed for $14.99.

    27. A draft guard to protect your home from chilly air that tries to sneak in under the door. Your heating bill from last year might've been sky high but this time around should be better since you'll be able to keep the cold air out.

    An insert that slides underneath a door

    Promising review: "I wanted something that would keep the noise out, to be honest. I live in a small NYC apartment with roommates, and my doors are french doors. I wanted something to fit underneath that would serve specifically to reduce noise, but also not be a pain when I opened and closed the doors. It works wonderfully! It reduces the noise level from outside, and vice versa. The talking and TV in the living room are muted, and I have been told my phone conversations are quieter! So perfect for what I needed." —Meagan

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors and packs of one and two).

    28. These suede heel grips because breaking in a pair of new shoes is the WORST when they keep giving you blisters.,

    Promising review: "I have very narrow heels so finding shoes that do not slip is incredibly difficult. However, since I have purchased the Pedag Stop Padded Leather Heel Grips, I have been able to wear all of my shoes. The heel grips are thick enough to keep my shoes from slipping in the back but not too thick to where it makes my shoes feel smaller. Also, the heel grips are made out of a super soft leather. Even through having sweaty shoes, the heel grips have stayed stuck to the back part of the shoe. Each set of heel grips is wrapped individually so it is easy to store the extras that I am saving for shoes in the future." —Derek

    Get a pack of three pairs from Amazon for $5+ (available in packs of five and 10).

    29. A set of four motion sensor lights because you're tired of bumping into things in your front yard when you're walking around outside at night.

    The lights mounted to the side of porch steps and illuminating the stairs

    Promising review: "These lights are great!! No lag time when you walk out! As soon as I open the storm door, they turn on quicker than when flies hits the poo!! The eight LED lights are way bright enough, too!! I am ordering more for the back porch and for the garage!!" —Kevinss

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes).

    30. And a pair of extra large wool dryer balls to help your laundry dry 25% faster and feel much softer. No more having to throw your towels back in for a second round of drying!

    A glass vase with the three large white wool balls

    These Woolzies dryer balls are hypoallergenic and made in New Zealand. They're even safe for people with wool allergies. Celsious is a Black women-owned and environmentally-focused online shop based in Brooklyn, New York. They also run a laundromat!

    Get them from Celsius for $20 (available in white and grey).

    31. These glue traps to put an end to the reign of terror of the creepy crawlies that rear their heads in the most vulnerable corners of your home — even if you've only seen a roach roaming your bathroom once, it'll certainly be the last time you ever see it.,

    Promising review: "These suckers stop everything, and I mean everything. They are easy to put together and can be placed anywhere. I left a few unfolded and slipped them under the side door on my garage. The good news is that they captured about 10 cockroaches. The bad news is that now my wife knows that there are cockroaches outside the house and were in the garage until all of them get stuck on additional traps. These have trapped spiders, ants, beetles, and everything else that creeps and crawls. The only downside is that these are sticky as heck and require care when being placed or else you get stuck to them. Its like the booger that you try to wipe off only to get it stuck to the other hand, ya know? If you do want to put a bunch along the bottom of a door then I'd recommend not separating them and making the tent shape but trimming them of all excess paper except for one side (or the booger scenario ensues)." —Slader

    Get a pack of 90 traps from Amazon for $24.70.

    32. A pack of natural charcoal deodorizers to neutralize smelly shoes because you hate breathing in the funk from your sneakers every time you walk by them.

    A reviewer's narrow rectangular deodorizers inside a pair of fur-lined shoes

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes!!! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. OK, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!!!" —Erin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors and packs of two, four, and six).

    My coworker Yi wrote all about why these deodorizers are the solution to your smelly-shoe woes.

    33. This super-handy aromatherapy migraine stick that can actually help alleviate your headaches before they get worse. Once your headaches hit, you just become extremely irritable all day.

    A reviewer showing the small stick

    You may need more or less of a swipe, depending on how strong your headache is.

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything: OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor, etc.This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    BTW, my colleague Katy Herman wrote an in-depth review of the migraine stick that has some additional deets.

    34. A Burst Oral Care electric toothbrush because you're always taking extra time in the morning to comfort bleeding gums and just want an overall healthier-feeling mouth.

    Burst Oral Care

    You'll receive a toothbrush base, a toothbrush head, a charging base, and a wall adapter. Of course, for serious conditions, you should consult a dental professional.

    Promising review: "I love everything about this brush! The color, the tapered bristles that reach between my teeth, its ability to whiten my teeth, the four- to six-week battery life and the lifetime warranty but my favorite part is my teeth feel squeaky clean after I use it! This brush really is the best at removing plaque!" —Robyn

    Get it from Burst Oral Care for $69.99.

    35. This jewelry cleaning stick since your bling just hasn't had the same sparkle it did when you first got it and you reaaaaaally don't want to spend too much to get it professionally cleaned.

    A reviewer showing a dull looking green jewel and it looking more sparkly

    Promising review: "This little pen brush is incredible! I wasn't sure if it would work well on my emerald engagement ring, since it's mostly advertised for diamonds, but I thought I'd give it a try. I have been wearing the ring since getting engaged in October, and even though I had it cleaned at the jeweler's in April, it just didn't seem as bright as it was when it was new, and I thought it would just always be a little cloudy. But after cleaning it once with the Dazzle Stik, I was blown away by the difference — it looks as bright and sparkly as when I first got it! I'm so glad I didn't buy an ultrasonic cleaner, since this is so much less expensive and easier and gentler. It took me less than a minute to clean, and I can do it whenever I want! And it's honestly better than when the jeweler cleaned it. So thrilled!" —KFray

    Get it from Amazon for $8.42.

    36. A roller stamp because the worst part of getting a new package is having to rip your name and address off the boxes before you dispose of them. This'll black out any identifying information from old letters, bills, and receipts.

    A reviewer showing a stamp with a roller mechanism that stamps on "confidential" when rolled across a surface

    I bought this because honestly, when I think about the fact that I'm gonna have to remove my package labels and rip them to smithereens, I don't even feel like ordering anything anymore! I knew we've put these rollers in posts before, so I decided to order one for myself.

    The ink is preinstalled (yay), so all I did was remove the ink cover and rolled right over the label info I wanted to hide, and BOOM, it was all covered up! My mom and I were pretty impressed, and honestly, I didn't want to stop using it! I went through the house just looking for more things I could use this lil' guy on. While it works amazingly well on most package labels and paper, it won't work on super-glossy surfaces.

    Promising review: "I liked this product so much, I bought another one as a gift. It works as promised, and you really cannot read what is underneath the stamp. Black permanent marker wasn't working very well, and sometimes shredding takes too long. This is a great product." —Figs5

    37. This drain snake to remove any hair buildup and other obstructions that leave your sinks clogged and your life a living hell of dirty, slow-draining 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

    38. A set of conversation cards for couples if your relationship hasn't been as strong as it could be and you want to better understand each other. Some reviewers say the cards have strengthened their relationships by making it easier for them to approach certain topics.

    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

    39. And this ring sizer because nothing's more annoying than ordering a pretty ring online only to have it not fit correctly because you just guessed your size.

    Promising reviews: "Works exactly as expected. It makes buying rings off of Amazon easier." —Lynn

    "This nifty little thing makes buying finger rings really easy. I have used mine several times to order both men's and women's rings, and every time it has been accurate. Of course, that also depends on the maker of the rings, but far as I can tell, this sizer was essential in helping." —rwlohmeyer
