    Looking at these products I'm like, "Oh duh – problem solved."

    1. A pack of 100 sound-dampening bumpers to prevent the loud sounds of slamming doors and banging cabinets when you're in the kitchen for a midnight snack while the family is sleeping. Bumping this up to the top of my shopping cart!

    2. 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.

    3. A hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying storage problems in history. I never realized these things could be stored any other way than a death-trap pile in the back of my closet?!

    4. A multi-use whisk wiper that'll solve the age-old question, "MOM, CAN I LICK THE SPATULA?!". No child, but you can have this magical device that saves me a huge mess to clean up!

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

    6. A mini fabric steamer, because you've been skating by with wrinkly clothes hoping no one would notice. But now you want to look fresh. Steaming the wrinkles out is such a small detail but can make a WORLD of difference when it comes to how professional and put-together you look and feel.

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

    8. 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.

    9. 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. A pillow for your butt, how did we not think of this before?!

    10. 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. Cover your window before the snow covers it for you, genius!

    11. 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! This entire time, ALL we had to do was put a mat under it! *mind blown*

    12. 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.

    13. A set of anti-chafing thigh bands to protect the skin on your inner thighs from rubbing together and getting red and irritated.

    14. A round blindspot mirror that'll make merging, changing lanes, and even parallel parking something you can actually do well now.

    15. 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!

    16. A ceiling fan metal pull chain with two pulleys, because you've spent the last few years guessing which chain turns on the light and which turns on the fan. Plus, if you're short like me, these are great for extending the chain a bit so you can actually reach them now.

    17. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to form a home for your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. No more digging for a matching pair or accumulating so many clothes in one drawer you can't open or shut it anymore. Bees had the obvious answer to organization this WHOLE time!

    18. 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!

    19. 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.

    20. A beauty spatula designed to get every last drop of your expensive foundation, lip gloss, or lotion. Wow tiny little spatula, you have my heart.

    21. A dog food tracker so you'll know if your best friend is just begging for a treat like they always do or they haven't had dinner yet.

    22. A pack of six cable clips that'll finally organize your desk, car, and bedside table charging stations by keeping cords in their place, because every time you bend down to pick up your charging cord you say to yourself, "there's gotta be a better way!"

    Realizing there was a solution this whole time...
