Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A neck scarf with built-in support for taking comfortable naps literally anywhere, because if you need anything in life right now it's probably sleep. It's designed so you sleep upright and at the proper angle so your neck doesn't cramp while traveling., Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is the greatest thing invented since chicken and biscuits. It's like a nice scarf with just enough support to keep your neck in the right position. I highly recommend it. Works great with big headphones too." β€”Deana Hero

    2. A pack of three oven liners because you're too busy doing other adult stuff to keep that oven of yours clean. Problem solved, these practically clean themselves. Time to make that juicy apple pie now!


    These liners are safe in heat up to 500Β°F/260Β°C, can be cut to any size you need, and can be cleaned in the dishwasher!

    Promising review: "Every Saturday, my grandsons spend the day and have frozen pizza, for their dinner β€” their choice. After having had to deal w/the splatters and burnt cheese in a non-self-cleaning oven, I purchased these liners and am delighted to say they're wonderful." β€”Carolyn Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    3. A collection of attached, collapsible bags you'll use while shopping to separate categories of food. Then they go straight from the cart to the car!,

    Promising review: "I'm a stickler on how my groceries are packed. I hate half-full bags β€” I'm one lady, I can't carry five or six half-full bags of groceries. These bags, however, are so easy to carry! It takes the guesswork out of bagging groceries! The baggers were a little confused by them at first, but it didn't matter because these bags make bagging groceries foolproof! No more multiple trips in and out of the house and no more hundreds of plastic bags floating around my kitchen! One trip, easy to carry, reusable, and good for Mother Earth. LOVE!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $35.99.

    4. A drawer organizer made with rearrangeable sections so you can finally be one of those hyper-clean people who doesn't just shove everything in a drawer. Can't relate.

    The set includes one adjustable basemat and 15 "Divitz" in three sizes.

    Promising review: "I honestly thought that kitchen utensil drawers were not capable of being organized. No matter how well you sort and organize, someone will come along and make it a jumbled mess. Plus, pulling and pushing the drawer makes its contents slide all around. Nothing will stay put that way. But then I discovered this organizer. This set is absolutely amazing. It's made of medical-grade silicone that has a slide-resistant quality. I was skeptical that spoons and spatulas would actually stay put, but even without the dividers, things just don't slide around in the drawer." β€”Momster

    Get it from Amazon for $45.95 (available in five colors).

    5. A handy-dandy mop perfect for cleaning your dirty kitchen floors just in time to order in for the third time this week. One life improvement at a time, people!


    This mop is safe to use on all floor types and the microfiber material is 50% better at picking up dust than traditional mops. If that wasn't great enough, the 22oz refillable bottle is perfect for anyone who likes to make their own cleaning solution. The microfiber pads are also reusable and machine washable up to 100 times, which saves you so much $$$ in the long run!

    Promising review: "I'm a professional cleaner and purchased this mop along with a dry mop attachment (sold separately) for myself to try it out for my cleaning business. I've worked with a ton of commercial floor-cleaning equipment and this is the BEST I've ever used. Saves from having to tote around extra equipment and tools, uses up less storage space and provides more economical use of cleaners AND the mop heads (scrubby, dry and wet) are washable! I sweep and mop my kitchen, hallway and bathroom in five minutes! I love this mop!" β€”Cynthia

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    6. A three-in-one avocado tool that'll slice, extract pits, and scoop all the good stuff into your mouth! *cough* I mean bowl, put it in a bowl first.

    Promising review: "I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can't believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it's now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does it's job really well, and it's easy to clean. I love it so much." β€”kikikitten

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. An EZ Off jar opener for anyone (like me) who spends wayyyy too much time trying to open a can of pickles.


    Comes with a peel-and-stick adhesive and the three screws needed to install!

    Promising review: "My mother has one hand that is virtually useless and the other is weak. She has several prescriptions that have child-proof lids that you have to push down and turn and it's really hard for her to grip or put pressure enough to open. Jam, gravy, Ensure, sauces all have lids that it's hard for ME to open, forget someone with bad hands! This was exactly the type of tool we were looking for. She had no trouble opening little liquid medicine bottles with child-proof caps, Ensure bottles, or a jar of gravy with ease and no discomfort."" β€”Jodi

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    9. A Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean electric toothbrush with a charging cup, three heads, and a charging case so you're prepared to become your dentist's easiest patient. The next time you go in for a cavity check, you'll be thanking your past self for investing in this guy!


    Bonus! There are different modes available such as, clean, white, deep clean, sensitive and gum care!

    Promising review: "This is my first professional electric toothbrush. Even though it is pricey, it is worth every penny. I have been using it for almost a month now. I am happy that I have started noticing my teeth are definitely whiter. I used to brush my teeth too rough to the point my gum bleeds every time. With this Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean toothbrush, I have noticed no more bleeding." β€”Da

    Get it from Amazon for $161.49 (available in two styles and five colors).

    10. An efficient slicing device that'll get you the finely chopped vegetables you desire without the culinary arts degree. Plus, all parts are dishwasher safe!

    The set includes the stainless steel discs, four-cup container, cleaning brush, and a recipe e-book!

    Promising review: "This is definitely a lifesaver! I really like onions, but I usually can't see by the time I am done dicing them. In comes this dicer to save my teary eyes. The plastic is not cheap looking or feeling, the parts are easy to clean, and the dicer works well. Just place your vegetable and apply a bit of pressure and that's it!" β€”MTN

    Get it from Amazon for $22.97.

    11. An Amazon Echo so you can have a digital personal assistant help you with everything from playing music to calling a cab.

    The possibilities are endless: make calls, order products off Prime, stay up to date with current events, track your fitness with Fitbit β€” you name it. Plus, Alexa won't judge you if you order from Domino's two nights in a row.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in six finishes).

    12. A Squatty Potty for a cool tool to help with your stool! But really, if you want to be better at life, be better at pooping!


    It works because the angle it helps you sit (aka squatting) 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." β€”S. Levine

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

    13. A handy hook so all those multiple trips from the store to your kitchen counter can be a thing of the past.

    Promising review: "These have been an absolute dream to own β€” my wife and I never go shopping without them. They're very well made and help us make fewer trips with more bags. It says they will handle up to 50 pounds per handle; I never bothered to weigh what I put on them, but they have held up under pretty heavy loads that I thought for sure would make them bend or break. So far not a warp, crack, or bend in sight!" β€”Maverick

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A Nerf tennis ball shooter guaranteed to make you the most popular person in the dog park β€” and the least exhausted.


    Promising review: "OMG, this gun is so much fun. I have a shoulder injury and I can't throw the ball to my dog. Well now, I can make it fly. My dog is loving her new toy and she is getting the exercise she needs." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    15. A touchless vacuum that'll work waaaay better than a simple dustpan. Upgrade your life with #science.,

    Promising review: "I couldn't decide whether I wanted the home or professional version of this, but ended up going with the professional model because I have two long-haired dogs, a cat, and my boyfriend and I both have long hair. This vacuum FAR exceeds my expectations. My husky is blowing her coat right now, meaning I'm sweeping the house twice a day. As a test, I brushed her inside and collected the fur from half of her body in one pile." β€”Rachel Senterfeit

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in two colors).

    16. A giant water flask for finally, finally drinking enough water throughout the day, because who doesn't want to drink out of something that looks so sleek?

    The BPA-free plastic flask holds up to 750 mL of water.

    Promising review: "I don't know if it's just how cool it looks, or that it's so shiny and new, but I have certainly increased my water intake, easily, by about 80% since getting my new water bottle in the mail. It's like drinking out of a fish tank. I mean, how fun?! Everyone who see it comments on it, and I am not one who minds the attention." β€”Alyson

    Get it from Amazon for $28 (available in eight varieties).

    17. A handheld steamer so you can stop walking around with wrinkly clothing and start looking like a professional. *Sips tea*


    Promising review: "This fabric steamer is great! I've never purchased one before and both my husband and I lug out the big ironing board when we need to get rid of wrinkled clothing. After purchasing this steamer, I may never iron again! I love that it's lightweight and easy to use. I don't travel often so I will primarily use it at home, especially when I'm running late for work and need a quick fix. It heats up fast and is the perfect accessory for a busy household!" β€”Pamela W

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    18. A pack of Space Saver bags to make storing your stuff so much easier. And you can use any vacuum cleaner with 'em. Just think of all the things you could have been making tiny this whole time!

    Promising review: "This is a supreme product. In the past, I've tried different kinds of storage bags that promised and NEVER delivered. In some, the plastic was thin and couldn't be sealed properly. Some product required you to roll the bag in order to get rid of the air, which usually ended up being an unsuccessful hustle. I was desperate to get more closet room and decided to give this product a chance. What a success!" β€”A.A.

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes mediumβ€”jumbo).

    19. A to-do list for anything from your groceries to daily tasks so you can be the responsible adult you've always wanted to be (and not forget the milk).

    21. A Tubshroom that'll catch all your hair before it clogs the drain, so you can take showers without wading in three inches of water.,

    Promising review: "This works really well. My hair collection has grown so much. I might have enough to make a hair friend soon. I shall try on the first full moon. Seriously though, so much dog hair would have gone down my drain after just one dog bath. Yikes." β€”Kate Wills

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    It can be used as a screwdriver, wrench, ruler, and serrated knife!

    Promising review: "As a hair clip, it functions perfectly, just like any other barrette. As a multitool, it has its uses for sure. I've used it as a screwdriver for my glasses, a knife to open packages, a nail scraper, and nail file. It's very useful to have around, and very easy to carry around because I use hair clips like this daily. Every one of my friends who has seen this thinks it's really neat. I tell them, you really do need one, and not just because it's 'cool.' It's functional and comes in handy more often than not." β€”Crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    25. A produce-saving storage container that'll save you money by keeping your food fresh for up to two weeks longer than average. The interior tray helps keep moisture away from produce and the vent technology regulates flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide for the ideal produce environment.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This produce box is helping me cut food waste in a serious way. Normally, my strawberries begin to wilt within five days but the box has kept them fresh for up to two weeks! It also kept my leafy herbs lively for nearly a month. Skeptics beware, this product may convert you." β€”Molly

    They're also customizable for ankle, calf, and knee-high boots with guides to trim them to fit your shoes.

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip. Height is adjustable for short, medium, and tall boots!" β€”PK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two and four pairs)

    27. A set of suspenders that'll seamlessly keep your fitted sheets in place. Strapping idea, lads!

    Promising review: "This little guy makes it easy to bring a good shape to your beard. Its inexpensive, durable, and quick to use. I also like the fact that it's durable, hard plastic, unlike some metal ones that I've seen out there." β€”Gustavo Lomeli

    Get it from Amazon for $8.75.

    30. A drain millipede so you can take care of slow-flowing drains with just a few minutes of work, no need to call the plumber. Just make sure you do this after lunch, ok? 😬


    Promising review: "I bought one of these because of the testimonial reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren't nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids' tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I've spent a small fortune on Drano-type products that never seem to work. I won't buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn't think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. And be prepared to throw it away as you're not going to want to clean it." β€”Jennifer R. Little

    Get it on Amazon for $4.86.

    31. A waterproof notebook, because shower thoughts are some of your best and you don't want to lose them. Who knows, maybe you'll invent a product that belongs on this list.

    Promising review: "I can't recommend this handy writing tool highly enough. I'm back to buy my second one! I never realized how many great ideas I come up with in the shower β€” but now I can see because I can write them all down! And I take a lot more showers now!" β€”Lynn L.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    Fun facts: It's waterproof, heat- and cold-resistant, durable, flexible, shock-resistant and electrically insulating (up to 24 volts). It sets strong and in place by turning into a durable, tactile silicone rubber overnight!

    Promising review: "This thing has so many uses! I keep buying this over and over. I've used this moldable glue to mount things, organize wiring in stereo cabinets, stop rattles (my license plate rattled when closing the trunk and two little balls of Sugru to the back of plate did the trick), and I've even made tool hangers in the garage with it." β€”fastrnu

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    33. A pair of amber-tinted glasses for anyone who spends hours in front of a computer. These'll rescue your tired eyes by minimizing eye strain caused by blue light emitted from digital screens and fluorescent lighting.,

    Promising review: "These glasses are great. They look sharp, and they're not tinted so much that they alter color perception. I work in an office setting and after just one day of wearing these glasses, I noticed an improvement in my eye health. My eyes no longer hurt, water, itch, or feel bleached out after staring at a computer screen for hours on end. Highly recommended!" β€”Ariele Monzo

    Undo the drawstring to lay it flat, then when you're done with your makeup, cinch it back up!

    Promising review: "I really love this! I'm terrible at packing for a getaway β€” even just for a weekend. I laid this out the night before we left, put all of my makeup stuff in it, and then worked from the bag to get ready the next day. This helped me realize what I was missing or what I didn't really need. When it was time to go, I simply drew it shut and shoved it in my luggage." β€”WylieRyder

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in 13 colors).

    35. A protective spray that'll add a layer of protection between you and your shoes so you can wear that cute new pair like a champ, blister free.


    Promising review: "One of the things my grandma always said was, 'take care of your feet.' It was one of the many things she said that I realized later were true. Even with buying good shoes and taking care of my feet, blisters remain a problem. With this, I can prevent them from happening. This product has changed my life. It works and keeps blisters away. It's a great preventive measure." β€”L. Proctor
