    🎶 Where have you been all my life, all my life? 🎶 —Rihanna & You

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A jar of Active Wow charcoal powder with ingredients like orange seed oil and coconut powder to dramatically polish your pearly whites over time without so much as a hint of bleach. If you've been wanting to lighten your teeth for a while, this is a great gentle product to start with!

    To use, simply make your toothbrush slightly wet, remove the excess water, dip the brush into the charcoal powder and dab off any excess, and then brush your teeth for one to two minutes. Then, rinse your mouth to remove.

    Promising review: "I've only had this thing for two days now and my teeth are noticeably whiter. But this stuff gets everywhere, no matter how careful you are. I recommend brushing in the shower, and then brushing your teeth with normal toothpaste after to get any residual charcoal out from your teeth." —Dennis Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (originally $29.99).

    2. A (3D-printed!) clip-on sauce holder so eating fries from the bag before you get home can be even MORE enjoyable! The "Dip-lock" design allows any size sauce to sit comfortably and snug so it doesn't fall out.


    Promising review: "This is the coolest most innovative thing I’ve ever seen. This person needs to go on Shark Tank. So convenient and awesome that it comes in colors." —Julie Jones

    Get it from Limit3DitionShop on Etsy for $9.50.

    3. A flexible cable protector so you can prevent your charging cord from fraying after, like, two weeks. We all wish we bought this like three chargers ago, but now's your chance!

    Promising review: "I hate to recall how many new iPhone chargers and MacBook power bricks I've had to buy over the years as the originals gradually frayed at the connector ends until they stopped working altogether. These inexpensive little coils wind right around the connector base and first half inch or so of the cord to keep it from bending and ultimately breaking at the join. Genius." —ElleNWC

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $8.97 (available in three color combos).

    4. A hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying storage problems in history. This before and after alone has already changed me for the better!

    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 $16.30 (available in six packs).

    5. A multi-use whisk wiper that'll be a fought-over tool on baking nights. All those years of licking in and around the whisk, and this thing existed!?


    Promising review: "This is an awesome product!! This is excellent quality for the price. It's a nice weight and is comfortable to use. It keeps the whisk off the countertop and is right there when you need to scrape the bowl. The unique design makes cleanup a breeze. Whether you're a master chef or a wannabe like me, this will not disappoint!" —MLE

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in seven colors and two sizes).

    6. A bedside shelf so all of your bed-related needs are only an arm's reach away. Need a tissue? Not an issue!

    Attaching this to your bed frame requires zero tools, the clamp that keeps it steady is built in, and all you do is screw to tighten to the correct/tightest width.

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this product. I have literally been looking for something like this for years. We have a trundle bed in our guest bedroom, so a traditional night stand or bedside table would block the trundle from moving in and out. This is the perfect solution. It is nice and sturdy even with my 13-inch MacBook sitting on it.AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in plus size as shown in photo).

    7. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to form a home for your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. No more digging for a matching pair. Marie Kondo is shook!

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you." —Esq

    Get it from Amazon $11.99.

    8. A teeny tiny toenail brace to rid your life of curved toenail pain. It'll flatten out your nail to prevent it from jabbing into the side of your toe and becoming ingrown.


    The kit comes with ten toenail braces and the materials needed to apply it. Results should be seen in 1–3 days!

    Promising review: "I never realized how curved my toenails were. I thought the pain I had was just normal and a fact of life. Only when I read about the Curve Correct product, did I realize that I had a major problem, and it could be resolved! Now I'm on the way to normal, flat toenails, that DON'T grow curved into my skin!" —Jamie H.

    Get the kit form Amazon for $46.99.

    9. A bag carrier for carrying loads of groceries from the store to your car, and your car to your kitchen counter. I'm a one trip kind of gal so this is life-changing!


    Get it from Walmart for $7.36.

    10. 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!

    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 $7.99.

    11. A bracelet holder so you can fasten your jewelry quickly and without the annoyance of the chain slipping off your wrist JUST as you were about to clamp it shut.


    Promising review: "I can't believe I've waited this long to buy one of these. My eyesight is failing, including my depth perception so wearing bracelets has been difficult unless they are slip on. This jewelry helper is easy to use. Now I can wear bracelets again." —Cat Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in three colors).

    12. A countertop AeroGarden, because you've been wanting fresh herbs for cooking but do NOT have a green thumb to get you there. A greenhouse for your kitchen? The future is now, and look how yummy it is!


    It features LED grow lights, plus a system that reminds you when it's time to feed and water the plants! Herbs included: Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, Thai basil and Miracle-Gro plant food.

    Promising review: "I love to cook, so the thought of having fresh herbs and veggies right on my kitchen counter was exciting. However, I had never had much success gardening. This changed that for me. I made the best caprese salad I have ever eaten last week with some fresh basil from my garden. My kids actually enjoy helping me harvest and eat something green. It is freezing outside right now, but we still have fresh produce growing in our home! I can't believe it works this well. If you enjoy cooking or gardening, I would highly recommend." —FreshMom

    Don't forget the AeroGarden Gourmet Herbs 9-Pod Seed Kit!

    13. A motion-activated purse light so you no longer have to dig around for what feels like an eternity for your chapstick, wallet, keys, or phone (speaking of things you've been searching for your whole life).


    Promising review: "This is an awesome purse light (and could be used in other small spaces). I have several different types, but what attracted me to this particular light is that is much flatter than my others. It can attach inside the space you need it for, it automatically turns on when I open my bag instead of having to be shaken. Really a great and bright light." —M

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    14. A zipper puller designed to clasp onto any zipper as an extension so you can pull those dresses on and off without asking a friend for the hundredth time.


    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "So in the old days, I rigged up a zipper puller with a paper clip and a string. This was great for the old zippers there the pull had a little hole in it. However, invisible zippers have taken over the fashion world and those pulls are solid. I've found myself getting into all kinds of contortions trying to pull them up so my curiosity was definitely piqued when I saw this little item. Lo and behold, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. This really is a life changing thing for me. Now I don't have to choose my dresses according to whether or not my spouse is home to help me zip!" —Vicky Embrey

    15. A magnetic rack for a low-hassle way to keep your keys by the front door so you don't waste any more of your life searching for them on your way out. Lights, keys, action!


    Promising review: "How much simpler could it be?!? Take out the existing screws holding the switch plate, replace with the magnetic ones. Piece of cake! Love having my keys right by the back door without having to mount anything more on the wall." —AnewMom

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. A produce saver, because we are all sick and tired of buying salad and veggies only for them to die a wilted death 42 hours later.


    The container has a carbon filter that traps and absorbs ethylene gas, slowing down the spoilage process. The adjustable lid maintains humidity levels, while the elevated colander keeps produce away from the walls to promote air flow!

    Promising review: "It's hard to get my family to eat vegetables without them getting slimy by the end of the week. These new containers have been great! Not a single vegetable gets slimy! All of our fruits and vegetables last much longer in these, and I love that I can actually wash the food using the green insert and it drains instead of leaving a pool. We put the vegetables and grapes in this medium-size bin and berries in the smaller bin. I also love that our fridge ends up looking so tidy and organized with everything still easy to see." —Allison

    Get a pack from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three sizes) and get the filter refills for $9.99.

    17. A handwarmer mug with a finger nook for anyone who loves to warm up their body with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Now your mug will warm those precious phalanges too!


    Promising review: "I adore this mug! A friend brought me one from Portland (where they're made) as a gift a few years ago and when I sadly broke it last year (my fault, not the mug's!) I immediately went in search of a new one and was very happy to find them on Amazon. The color and design on both of my mugs has been beautiful and the colors don't fade at all even after a few years of use. I really love being able to tuck my hand into the nook when it's chilly and I'm having tea as much to hug the warm mug as to sip the tea!" —Risa

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95 (available in seven colors and available for both left and right handed people).

    18. A pore vacuum to finally get all the dirt, grease, blackheads, and dead skin off your face for good.,

    It's designed for all skin types, thanks to its five different levels. Level one is for sensitive and dry skin, levels two and three are for neutral skin, and levels four and five are for mixed and oily skin. The set comes with four suction heads: for blackheads, removing dirt/grease, reducing dead skin buildup and fine lines, and tightening your skin. It's also rechargeable—they've thought of everything!

    Promising review: "I honestly can't run out of great things to say about this! This blackhead remover works WONDERS I use it about once or twice a week & absolutely love it. It works very well, and I have seen a size reduction in my pores since using it for the past few weeks. I highly recommend this blackhead remover!" —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    19. A shirt-folding board so you actually put your laundry away when it comes out of the dryer instead of clumping it all in a "clean pile" and procrastinating until the next laundry day.

    Promising review: "I love the ease of use as well as the results! Such a great product. I wish I had this my whole life." —Mark T.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99. (available in five colors).

    20. A pack of 36 hydrocolloid acne-absorbing patches to put on any unwanted pimples overnight and — WOW — say goodbye to pus, oil, and inflammation in the morning.


    Promising review: "I’m a 47-year-old woman who has adult cystic acne for 12 years. Four months ago I got the worst cystic zit of my life. It kept closing up and then refilling. I was so depressed and researched these dots online. I paid for next day shipping and was amazed how great they work! They were able to drain the zit and keep it draining so it couldn’t close and refill and get big and angry. They dots filled up so much I ran out and when I went to reorder they were back ordered so I had to order another brand. The other brand was a couple of dollars cheaper but they did not work as well. Get these! Seriously they really were a GODsend!" —auntylizzy

    Get a pack from Amazon for $11.88 (available in three sizes).

    21. An iced tea tumbler to more efficiently prepare your favorite beverage on the go. Simply add hot water and loose-leaf tea (or a tea bag) to the outer cup, let steep, then fill the inner cup with ice and press down. So well-designed, so refreshing.


    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $28.99.

    22. A buckle-free belt that'll help with quicker pee breaks and give you that comfortable fit you've been wanting for years.


    Plus, no more weird bulge underneath your shirt.

    Promising review: "I bought my first one on Indiegogo cause I liked the idea. I bought the next one here on Amazon because I REALLY like it. I'm of a certain age where I have a bit hanging over my belt, and with this belt there is no pinching. Super easy to use, looks good, it's a real change to an item that's been basically unchanged for centuries." —Tom Wacker

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S and L and four colors).

    23. A biotin shampoo formulated with nutrient-rich botanicals like B5 zinc and coconut oil to nourish your hair and stimulate your scalp, removing any buildup that may be blocking your pores and helping your hair strands get strong. Believe me, this stuff is really gonna ~grow~ on you.


    Promising review: "For about five years I have been experiencing hair loss. I have tried all the brand name shampoos to help control the hair loss, but none of these shampoos helped much at all. Then I discovered this! It doesn't work overnight, but it works! And I am still on my first bottle. I have short hair and wash it twice a week. My friends can't believe how much fuller my hair is! It is truly amazing! I would highly recommend this shampoo for thinning hair!" —The D.

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

    24. A waterproof Satisfyer Pro 2 with 11 sucking modes that'll quench your thirst faster than a tall glass of water!


    Promising review: "I vote to rename this product 'Orgasmatron 5000.' Not kidding. I was pretty hesitant to spend that much on a toy, but it is absolutely worth every penny. When the instructions say 'it's even better in the bath,' they aren't kidding, and the settings go from what I would call 'gentle murmur' up to 'HOLY #$@%!!' Don't forget to try it on your nipples as well. If you possess a clit, you NEED this toy. Do it" —Amelia

    25. A comfy, memory foam chair cushion for anyone who's been searching for something to help soothe their back pain and/or work on their posture.,

    Promising review: "Works great, helps to relieve some pressure from sitting. This is a great memory foam cushion for office chairs or your couch. You really can feel the difference. This is thick, and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing, and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —phillygrl

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

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

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Lo and behold! 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." —Sharon Hamilton

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

    27. A windshield cover to protect your car from the stormy weather and get you to work on time since you won't be scraping ice and snow off your windshield for an hour!


    The shield cover is made with straps that hang down and attach to your car's wheels for a secure and tight fit. This keeps snow/wind/and frost from building up under the cover!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have ever bought! I bought one for myself, my mom, and my sister. New England just got slammed with a Nor'easter, and let me tell you...this thing works! It only took about five minutes to put on my car, and like five seconds to get it off this morning. No snow or ice anywhere on the wiper well or windshield. I highly recommend this!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    28. A set of five Food Huggers so you stop wasting half-eaten veggies and fruits and have makeshift caps for any sort of bottle or container.


    Promising review: "These are great, got them as a gift for my mom and she absolutely loves them, no more soggy veggies in aluminum foil or saran wrap, and the produce gets used a lot faster because it is more visible." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in three pack varieties).

    29. A puzzle rolling mat for quickly rolling up your works-in-progress so they are out of the way until you want to work on them again! Puzzles are fun, but messes are not.


    Promising review: "We were vacationing and were working on a 1000 piece puzzle. It wasn't finished when we had to pack up our gear and head home. We rolled up the mat with the puzzle inside and took it home. It worked great! When we got home we unrolled it and continued our puzzle adventure and finished it. Phew!" —Sonia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    30. A beauty spatula designed to get every last drop of your expensive foundation, lipgloss, or lotion. Don't let a poorly designed bottle get you down! Sooooo satisfying.,

    Promising review: "I love this cute little makeup spatula! It's so convenient and useful. If you're a makeup/product junkie that doesn't like waisting, (like I am) this is the perfect problem solver for those empty bottles left with product caked on the inner walls. It's long too, so it works in just about any size bottle or jar. I only bought one and I use it for everything. It's washable so it will last you a long time. Great gift for a makeup artist, if they don't already have one!" —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69.

    31. A set of seat gap fillers so when you inevitably drop your phone between the seat and the center console you won't have to stick your arm down the dark crevice of doom and despair to find it.


    Promising review: "I watched the episode of Shark Tank this was on. I have had incidents where things have dropped into the gap between seat and console and what a pain that is! This product is so simple and easy to install. I highly recommend it and wonder why I didn't think of it first." — The Crew Dawg

    Get the set of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    32. A Squatty Potty for a cool tool to help with your stool! But really, you should have one of these in every bathroom because it works that well.


    It works because the angle it helps you sit (aka squat) is more conducive to an effortless bowel movement. Check out this BuzzFeeder's full review of the Squatty Potty for all the deets!

    Promising review: "I was hesitant about how much Squatty would impact my GI conditions but this is amazing. Although the stance is a bit awkward to experience at first, the results are immediate. After finishing, my lower abdomen is SO much more relaxed than a bowel movement without the Squatty. There is NONE of the strain/tightness/cramping I usually feel in my lower abdomen." —S. Levine

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in packs of ten).

    33. A portable, collapsible, and waterproof car trashcan, because on long drives you always end up needing to throw something away but never have a proper place to put it. Keep your car clean and the snacks flowing.

    Promising review: "It works. Simple as that. I have even ordered more because it works wonders in my vegetable drawer and also in my fruit basket.

Clean up is so simple, no more melted cheese or sauces burnt to the bottom of my ovens. I love I can cut down to size to fit my toaster oven also. My husband enjoys grilling with the liners now, he doesn't have to line the grill with aluminum foil which he found so annoying, deterring him from grilling. This product really has simplified my life in the kitchen and I love it." —Melissa

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $17.95.

    Promising review: "There's a terrific table of contents in front to guide you where you might want to go, but I kind of prefer the 'surprise me' method of just opening it up. The book is visually stunning, the pages and photos are crisp and clear. The writing is awesome. It's so easy to lose yourself in there." —CHaga
