    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bottle of earwax removal drops that'll do all the hard work for you. Gone are the days of using five Q-tips 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 $5.68.

    2. A grooming glove to use wet or dry to remove excess hair from your furriest friend in a way they will actually enjoy it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming — this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away, leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99 (available in both left-handed and right-handed versions).

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

    Amazon

    They attach on a pivoting base, so you can adjust them for the perfect view.

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They're helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too." —Mariam Abass

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.97 (also available in rectangular and egg shapes).

    4. A pack of four toe separators so bunions and overlapping toes won't stop you from wearing you 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 $9.49 (available in two colors).

    5. 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. #science

    Natalie Brown / Via 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." —Molly

    Get a four-cup container from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. 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!

    amazon.com

    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).

    7. A set of microfiber makeup remover cloths to wipe off your products with JUST WATER, that's right, even your waterproof mascara will come right off.

    amazon.com

    As if that wasn't easy enough, these are also machine washable so you can use them again and again!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —RachelM

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $7.12.

    Check out BuzzFeed Reviews for our pick of the best makeup removers from three different price points.

    8. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Not only can I finally tell which pull chain works which function, but since I added them to the ends of my existing pull chains it's no longer necessary for my ancient 5-foot 1-inch carcass to stand on tiptoe just to reach the blasted pulls. Last time I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot. NOT fun." —La Donna Bucket

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors and two packs).

    9. A foot file that'll make even the crustiest of heels smooth again. Just look at those r~heel~y incredible results.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes — two minutes!! — of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." —LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    10. A pack of oil-absorbing tissues made with natural bamboo charcoal for confronting an oily T-zone in the fastest manner possible. They're super absorbent and will be your go-to for years to come.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oil-blotting sheets because they're lifesavers. THESE ARE AMAZING. Great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I used to use Clean & Clear sheets or knock offs of the same thing but I'll never go back. Give these a try; they are completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. No negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.60.

    11. 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.

    amazon.com

    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. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    Get it from Amazon for $7.04.

    12. A touch-up paint pen so as you live your life and accidentally scuff up the paint on the walls, you're just a pen click away from it being fixed with the exact paint you used in the first place.

    Amazon

    These are especially great because you can fill them up with the exact paint you used the first time. This pen keeps paint fresh for up to seven years! Simply soak the paint you want from the can you used originally and keep these handy in a drawer somewhere for when you really need it.

    Promising review: "I recently had the interior of my house painted. I purchased these pens, thinking that I might need to touch things up from time to time. Well, I did, like when I pushed the garbage can against the wall. Or when I found spots the painters missed. I love how easy these pens are to fill. I've got a couple stashed in various rooms. When I see a spot, I just grab the pen, shake it to mix the paint, and twist the barrel." —Karen

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four pack sizes).

    13. 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!

    Amazon

    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.

    14. 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.

    Etsy

    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

    Get it from Limit3DitionShop on Etsy for $9.50.

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

    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).

    16. 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.

    Amazon

    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).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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.

    18. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not I feed them and indicate it, we all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.94 (available in packs 1–4).

    19. A magnetic weekly meal planning pad, because if you forget the creamer again this week you might actually cry over spilt milk! Structure your food for the week and rip off a handy shopping list to take with you to the grocery store so this never happens again.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly 'what do you want to eat,' 'what do we have,' blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week's meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don't miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn't stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. Will be buying again when my current one gets low." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have devices that need to be charged and you want to keep your cables neat, tidy and in place, you need this product. You could also use your imagination to find other uses! I have purchased two packs of these and used them all! I simply could not imagine life without these cable clips!" —Mike

    tk

    These are also great for creating a custom fit if you have trouble finding your exact size in stores.

    Promising review: "These have been amazing during my pregnancy. I really can't rave enough. When my body started changing, I went out and bought a new bra (I'm a 32 and got a 34), but soon it started feeling tight on me. I didn't need another bra because the cups still fit fine, then I found these extenders, and they made all the difference! I can extend without buying new bras! They are sooo soft and comfortable, you can't really feel or tell they are there. I've already recommended them to all of my pregnant friends!" —Mari

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five sizes).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've seen these online and thought I'd give them a try... I'll never wash my face without these again! I have a pretty in-depth skin care routine and this these little wonders cover the missing piece. The silicone is super soft and the ergonomically design is easy to hold. I'm actually using less face wash now. My kids are using them now and are super fun for them to use. And I even gave one to my husband who loathes washing his face. I highly recommend and for the price you can't beat it!" —G. Pathak

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't know how these little guys work, but work they do. I had one blemish for so long that I assumed it and I would be cremated together when that time came. Two of these guys later, and not only was the blemish gone, the portal through which it came from the underworld into my life was miraculously not only closed but healed. I'm now working on my new identity without the devil's own blemish, which is a refreshing change from my usual daily partnership with that soulless eruption. Thank you, Nexcare." —Bmac
