    1. A ring adjuster that'll make your ring have a tighter fit the more loops you add which will save you a trip to the jeweler.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have skinny fingers with fat/wide knuckles. I cannot take my engagement ring down even a half size — or else it won’t fit over the bone. After purchasing these very comfortable, very durable size adjusters, I had to order another pack! I never want to be without these! The coil adjusters are easy to put on the ring (it might take a minute to get the coil around the ring but you’ll get the hang of it) and the coils don’t come off unless you undo them manually — which is VERY easy to do. It doesn’t damage the ring, either. Thank you so much, whoever patented this! It’s a lifesaver! I also think it’s great because it prevents the back of the ring from getting scratched when you wear it." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (for four; also available as a set of 18).

    2. A six-pack of non-toxic moth traps, because you spend so much time, effort, and money on putting together the perfect wardrobe and storing away seasonal clothing, but these guys can ruin that in literally one day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When I say these work fast, I mean it. I got these in hopes of killing my pantry moth problem once and for all. As soon as I set these traps out a SWARM of moths came out from who knows where. I felt like I was in The Birds it was that intense. After my momentary panic I was shocked to find that the moths went straight to the traps and got themselves stuck and within a few hours the kitchen was eerily free of moths. Don’t let the price scare you, this stuff works and works well!" —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    3. A hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying storage problems in your entire house. Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by a cluster of hangers. This before and after alone has already changed me for the better!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79 (available in six packs).

    4. A pack of clear silicone-rubber earring backings because you've lost all the backings that originally came with your earrings and you're sad. Don't be sad, these work just as well!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These little silicone backs are small, but they tightly hold the earring in place really well. And with 200 pieces in the box, if you drop one (you will), it really doesn’t matter. Now I can safely wear the earrings in my jewelry box that are missing one or both backs. This was an excellent — and inexpensive — purchase for me. Highly recommend!" —Carol R. Slicher

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59 (for 200 pieces).

    5. A bug-catching tool to help you rid your house of unwanted pests without having to harm them. It's easy to operate with just one thumb-movement which releases the sliding trap base.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this catcher because we try to be as kill-free in our home as possible, but sometimes the traditional cup-and-paper method just doesn’t work. This tool catches bugs so easily, we’ve even nabbed house flies with it! The opening was wider that expected, so I think most household critters (e.g., daddy long-legs, centipedes, mosquitos, etc.) could be caught in it without damage." —J&S

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    6. A pack of motion-sensing LED lights, because you've stubbed your toe on the kitchen table one too many times! These are a cheap way to get helpful lighting in places that need it most around your home. You don't need to get professional installation — just stick them on.

    amazon.com

    They're battery-powered (three AAA batteries; not included) for cordless installation. They automatically turn on within 10 feet and automatically shut off after 15 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Excellent unwired lights for places that would benefit from having lights but you don’t want the hassle and expense of hiring an electrician to do the wiring for the lights. I have four of these lights inside hallway shelves. This hallway gets a lot of foot traffic. In the evening, these lights get triggered on by a passerby by at least 20 times. I’ve had these lights for two whole months, and the original batteries are still good to go. Please be advised that these white lights are rather cool temperature lights. I would estimate around 5,000K. If you’re looking for something slightly warmer (i.e. slightly more yellow) then opt for the warm white version." —H. Jonathan K. Park

    Get them from Amazon: a six-pack for $19.99 (available in four colors) or a three-pack for $12.97.

    7. A leather conditioner for transforming your worn-out shoes, chairs, couches (really anything leather) back to how they looked when you first brought them home.

    amazon.com

    The formula is also water-, snow-, and rain-repellant so it'll build a layer of protection for your belongings to last longer.

    Promising review: "I use this for my everyday boots, as well as my dress shoes. I'm not always gentle with my boots and I thought I had ruined them the other day (worn out color, scuffs all over), but I cleaned the muck off, gave them a brushing, then applied this leather honey and after letting it sit, my boots look almost like the day I bought them! It keeps the leather supple and restores color. You only need to use a small amount per use!" —David Horning

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    8. A personal password book because, like me, you keep adding a number to the end of your passwords and you've lost count and also lost sleep. Just keep your passwords all in one place and then forget about them like you usually do anyway!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    9. A Dexas portable dog paw cleaner for when your furry friend decides their favorite activity today is running through the mud! Simply add some water, dump their paw into these super soft bristles, and watch the magic happen!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws and a standard lab puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was driving me UP THE WALL. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in three sizes and three colors).

    10. A set of light-dimming sheets because someone kept looking at their very bright alarm clock and thought, "There's gotta be a way to rid my life of glare!?" And then they invented this thing. Glare be gone!

    amazon.com

    Pack comes with two large light-dimming sheets (cut to fit your needs)!

    Promising review: "What a time to be alive. I was laying awake at night wishing there was something I could do to make my hellish alarm clock less bright. I was really pleasantly surprised when I found out this product existed. I'm SO HAPPY that it does. I seriously don't know where my fiancé bought this alarm clock, but it has four brightness settings and they range from light house search light to surface of the sun. I cut one of these sheets and smoothed it over the display and it's AMAZING. I can still read the clock during the day, but at night it's now just the right brightness so I can see the time, but not burn my retinas when I crack my eyes open in the middle of the night." —Tiffany Marie

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.29.

    11. A suede and leather brush cleaner for your favorite pair of shoes that just got ruined in the grass or salted snow.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this product. I was new to suede shoes and instantly regretted buying gray colored shoes once I got them dirty. Luckily I found this lovely thing. Very easy to use, straightforward packet comes with it that tells you which sides to use and when. I would definitely recommend this since you invest so much in those shoes you might as well keep them nice and clean!" —Celeste

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    12. A set of two vinyl furniture scratch guards so your pets will finally get the message that your really expensive couch is not their really expensive toy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these because my destructive cats tore up two sofas. I purchased a new sofa and didn't want to go down that road again if I could help it. I have already tried sprays, calming scent diffusers, and double sided tape. None of these worked. I put these on two sofas and so far my cats have left them alone. I have had them on for a couple of months. Of course, you can see them but they have an obvious purpose. They attach by screw in fasteners with a spiral pin. I haven't had any problem with rips from these. They needed tightening a couple times, but that is it." —Kristy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.74.

    13. A bottle of Burt's Bees sunburn lotion to soothe the biggest mistake you made all summer — forgetting the SPF!

    amazon.com

    Two words: aloe and coconut! Those are the main two ingredients and with results like these, we have no choice but to stan.

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.68.

    14. A set of stove counter gap covers, because you and I both know that when current-you drops food behind the stove, it's future-you who's gonna have to deal with it.

    amazon.com

    A super great plus to this product is that you can trim it easily with scissors to fit your space.

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much crud I have cleaned out between my counter and my stove. This lays in the opening between the two so nothing gets down into the space between. Just lay it down very easily, and it stays put. It looks like it is part of the stove. It is easy to clean; just wipe off when you clean the stove or counter. I have had no problem with melting as it is not on the burners, it is on the side of the stove. However, it is heat-resistant, so the heat from the stove will not bother it. I would definitely buy this again." —Joanne

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95+ (available two lengths and three colors).

    15. A portable bug bite suction tool that'll reduce the itching and swelling your body is experiencing after a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get two from Amazon for $18.95.

    16. A pack of liquid ant bait, because if you have an ant infestation A) I'm so sorry and B) you might want to buy a few of these!

    amazon.com

    You twist off the sealed end and simply place the packet in the ant infested area and they will be drawn inside by the ingredients. Once inside they can't come back out due to its sticky nature.

    Promising review: "Ridiculously effective!!! I first went to the local store and bought RAID Ant Baits. The ants simply walked around the traps and showed ZERO interest. How is RAID still in business, I do not know! I went online and did some research and this Terro Liquid Ant Bait product was getting rave reviews and a lot of positive feedback. I bought some, opened up three of the six packs on Ant Bait, and within MINUTES, yes MINUTES, the ants were literally coming out of the woodwork to get to this stuff. " —Perryo

    Get a pack of six on Amazon for $4.89 (available in packs of 1—3).

    17. A bottle of earwax removal drops that'll do all the hard work for you. Gone are the days of using five cotton swabs just to get nothing out, even though you know there's still wax in there!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been having ear hearing clogged issues for a month. My ear would not drain properly and it was frustrating me very much. I bought this product and used it twice and I could ear again. This is by far the best ear cleaning product ever! Highly recommended!" —AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.60.

    18. A pack of four toe separators so bunions and overlapping toes won't stop you from wearing your new favorite pair of shoes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are absolutely a godsend! It is a great alternative to bunion surgery. My second toe was creeping over my big toe and at times causing spasms. These have made all the difference in the world! I am a very satisfied customer. Worth every penny! They are very comfortable to wear, even with your shoes or sandals on."—Amazon Customer

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

    19. A pair of moisturizing gel heel sleeves made with a gel pad that'll release oils and vitamins as you sleep to help heal cracked skin and dry patches.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising reviews: "I have been having trouble with badly cracked heels and I have tried Vaseline in my socks overnight, but I would get hot and end up taking them off. These provided great breathability all night and in the morning, my cracked heels already looked a million times better. If you are looking for a product that softens your heels and starts working away at those dry, cracked areas immediately, I would recommend these." —Victor

    Get a box of three from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors and two styles).

    20. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets that'll clean your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else, with no scrubbing required. We love an all-natural, no-hassle way to clean!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    21. A bottle of CND Essentials nail & cuticle Solaroil to rid your life of broken and peeling nails from all those gel manicures you did over the summer. With daily application, they'll grow so strong you'll be able to file this purchase under #worthit.

    amazon.com

    Each day, work the oil into your nails and cuticles and they will begin to grow and strengthen so you don't have to worry about weak nails anymore!

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4 oz refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    22. A wine stain remover that'll magically erase all kinds of spills us trash-humans get on us (like wine, coffee, and spaghetti sauce).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! I had an unfortunate accident where a guest knocked over a glass of port wine from an end table which splashed on white window shades, white window sills, while base boards, taupe-colored painted walls and white with dark beige carpeting. I completely cleaned the window sills, the window shades, the baseboards, the walls and the carpeting! You cannot even tell it happened. No stains or color change to the carpet or the walls or the white painted surfaces. Before you try or use anything, buy this. It cannot be beat! I was afraid I might have to hire a professional to clean the carpet and that I might have to completely repaint walls, but no. I cannot recommend this product more highly! You will not be disappointed, I guarantee it." —Sharon Hamilton

    Get it from Amazon for $5.92. (available in 1–5 packs).
