    Promising Review: "This organizer is the best thing since sliced bread. It was super easy to assemble. No tools or anything! Dislcaimer: Maybe my view is a bit skewed after having to look at Mount Shoemore (see before pic) for too many years, but it is very sturdy, looks nice, and definitely fulfilled my purpose without harming my budget. I have recommended this to several people already. The organization brings peace and boy was I peaceful upon completion." —Tanya from Madison, TN

    3. An acrylic glass cosmetic organizer with nine compartments and five drawers that'll keep all of your makeup from making a mess of your bathroom sink or wherever you choose to glam it up.

    Promising review: "This organizer has plenty of storage for my cosmetics, nail polishes and tools, essential oils, razors, and more! I like the clear drawers. They make it easy to spot what is in each drawer and give it a classy look. The compartments are stackable but separate. I like this feature because I plan to keep it under my vanity and to pull out my cosmetics located on top as needed." —Ashley from Johns Island, SC
    Price: $41.99.

    4. A Henckels 12-piece knife block set including stainless steel bread, chef's, paring, santoku, and steak knives for slicing, dicing, chopping, and cutting any type of food that gets in their way.

    Promising review: "I was very hesitant to order knives sight unseen but boy to I luck out on this buy! Mostly shopping for steak knives I can report that these are very sturdy and easy to hold in the hand. These are a medium width and an easy hold for a small hand (which I am). My husband is a retired chef and he couldn’t quit talking about how great they felt And what an outstanding buy they were." —Kim from Edgecomb, ME

    Price: $99.99 (originally $260).

    5. A stain-resistant, easy-to-clean, brown area rug to keep indoor hardwood floors looking new and outdoor porches and decks looking stylish.


    Promising Review: "I ordered three rugs for my kitchen. I wanted rugs that could handle heavy traffic and dirt and they did not disappoint! By Day 3 someone had spilled food and the rug spot washed right up. They are not “soft” but you can walk barefoot on them and it doesn’t hurt. Would order again!" —Pam from Little Suamico, WI

    Price: $30.99+ (originally $49.05, available in four sizes).

    6. A set of 12 super durable and dishwasher safe, handled glass mason jars so you won't have to worry about breaking the good glassware when entertaining outdoors. Or fill them with decoratively with things like your favorite flowers. They're not just for weddings anymore!

    Promising review: "Love these drinking jars! When you get them they look smaller than they appear online but hold a lot more liquid than you would think!" —Andrea from Peoria, AZ

    Price: $28.99 (originally $34.99).

    7. A seven-drawer storage chest, because every home needs a "junk drawer" for that mess of things that never quite seems to have the perfect home. The clear drawers will let you see exactly what's inside before you have to go fishing for that nine-volt battery or pair of tweezers.

    Promising Review: "I really like the different size drawers in this chest. I mostly use these for crafting, they are sturdy enough for all mediums that I work with. The fact that I can store them up against the wall or closet and roll them out as needed is great." —Juanita from Summerville, SC

    Price: $38.99 (originally $67.04).

    8. A Le Creuset five-piece, dishwasher-safe, stacking, stainless-steel measuring spoon set that will always come in handy even if you don't bake or cook often. Worst case scenario: you're all out of clean spoons and don't know what to do. Voilà! You've got five back-ups!

    A set of five stainless-steel measuring spoons stacked within each other and fanned out to show the measurements on each handle

    Promising Review: "I LOVE this set. I also purchased the measuring cup set, and, as I said in that review, look no more! These are the best quality and will last a lifetime. Purchases like these are why I love Wayfair. The reviews have been spot-on, and I am telling you that this measuring spoon set is the best out there." —David from Sykesville, MD
    Price: $24.43.

    9. A steel wall-mounted pot rack with 12 hooks for hanging your heaviest pans and whatever other cookware that your already over-packed cabinets or countertops can no longer handle.

    A graphite finish pot rack mounted on a yellow wall holding six heavy pans, a colander, and a pot

    Promising review: "I love this! It looks great and holds all my cast iron. It took 3 guys about an hour to get up, it wasn't difficult just helpful having extra hands. It is very heavy and holds a lot of weight so we had to be certain we hit the studs when we were drilling the holes." —Kayla from Nashville, TN

    Price: $68.99 (originally $101.04).

    10. A stackable, backless bar and counter stool so you'll always have some extra indoor or outdoor seating that won't take up a ton of space when you're not using it and will never go out of style.

    Promising review: "What a fun way to add a pop of color to your space! Stools are sturdy and have rubber feet to help protect your floor. Love these stools!" —Shannon from Calgary, AB

    Price: $44.97+ (originally $88.63, available in 20 colors).

    11. A microwave- and dishwasher-safe, six-piece, Pyrex bakeware set that doubles as food storage for leftovers. The glass dishes are scratch-, stain-, rust-, warp-, and tarnish-resistant, so do your worst.

    Three rectangular glass baking dishes with dark blue snap tops floating above them

    Promising review: "Definitely not my mother’s Pyrex! Multi-functional, sleek, and incredibly sturdy. No doubt, another order is necessary. I feel safer feeding my family leftovers now that they are in Pyrex. Watch out, the largest one magically makes homemade cookies disappear!" —John from Woodstock, IL

    Price: $24.99+ (available in two colors).

    12. A lightweight Bissell bagless upright vacuum cleaner with two brushes, an extension wand, and a crevice tool for sucking up every type of mess around your home (including pet hair) at a super affordable price.


    Promising review: "I have wasted hundreds of dollars on Dyson, Shark, and others. Never again. They wear out in about two years and fixing them is expensive and a hassle. I really like this vacuum, the suction is amazing, doesn't clog and easy to empty and I have pets, kids, and a sloppy husband so for me to be this please is saying something!" —Carrie from Fort Collins, CO

    Price: $99.99.

    13. A Novogratz metal, multi-tiered plant stand with laminated particleboard shelves to help you level-up your home greenery game with room for pots and plants of multiple sizes.

    A three-tier gunmetal gray plant stand with potted plants on each shelf

    Promising Review: "This plant stand is wonderful!! Very easy to assemble! Nice compact size! I've been trying out different looks to put on it. From plants to candles, vases, and books it so versatile it can be used in any room. There was hardware included so you could wall mount the stand. That too can be an option for me!" —Dottie from NJ

    Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $64.99 (originally $99.99, available in four colors).

    14. A collapsible and expandable garment rack for aiding overflowing closets and switching seasonal clothing in and out of the rotation, especially longer, heavier winterwear.

    A metallic garment wrack on four caster wheels holding to items of clothing against a white wall and hardwood floor

    Promising review: "I love how it gives me enough space to hang my clothes. It's so versatile too I not only use it for clothes I also use it to hang my handbags. This garment rack has really changed my life. I love it wouldn't trade it for anything else." —Brittany from New Orleans, LA

    Price: $58.99 (originally $125.99).

    15. A square storage ottoman that, by day, looks like any mild-mannered footrest, but, also by day, is actually a hidden storage facility for not-always-necessary living room accouterments (like blankets or pillows). Don't worry Otto-Man, your secret is safe with us.

    A light gray fabric square ottoman with a removable top on a textured white rug

    Promising review: "How surprised we were for such an unusually fair-priced Ottoman to be such a beautiful addition to our home. The fabric is beautifully sewn with high-end details. The photo does not begin to do it justice. My husband added wheels, instead of the enclosed legs, for ease of movement. It is one of my favorite Wayfair purchases and our home is decorated with many of your fine products." —Elaine from Oregon, IL

    Price: $82.99+ (originally $93.99, available in four colors).

    16. A four-piece, hammered copper kitchen canister set for storing flour, sugar, coffee, pet food and treats, or whatever scoopable sundries you're known to use on the reg. They're also "ant proof" so feel free to pack these on your next picnic to test that claim out.

    A set of four hammered copper canisters, the smallest of which is filled with sugar and tipped over spilling some out on a kitchen countertop

    Promising review: "I bought these to replace a 25-year-old set. These are beautiful. I washed and thoroughly dried them first. The seal in the lid is removable, so you can get everything perfectly dry. The seals work very well. The canisters are just the right size. An entire bag of flour will likely fit in the large one, as well as a bag of sugar in the next size. The third size is great for coffee, and I put kosher salt in the smallest. They are easy to use measuring cups to get out the flour and sugar. I am very happy with this purchase!" —Kim L from Texas

    Price: $49.99 (originally $113.99).

    17. A set of four stainless-steel, waterproof solar-powered LED pathway lights that are tough enough to survive being run over by the lawnmower and should last up to 10 illuminating years to keep you from tripping on your front lawn., Wayfair

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. Lights up the front of my home real nice and are solar-powered. You can lay them down flat on the ground or use stakes that come with each one. Plus each one has an on/off button." —Walter from Michigan

    Price: $19.99.

    18. A free-standing, metal countertop spice rack, because proper seasoning of your food is always in season and know you'll never have to go digging into the deepest depths of your kitchen cabinets only to discover that you're all out of thyme.

    A black metal spice rack filled with various colorful spice jars sitting atop a kitchen counter

    Promising Review: "Lifesaver! Now my spices are easier to find and reach. If I don't want to look at it, I can just tuck it away in one of my tall cabinets." —Christina from Morehead City, NC

    Price: $20.99+ (originally $39, available in two colors).

    19. A microwave- and dishwasher-safe, three-piece glass measuring cup set (one, two, and four cups to be exact) that should be able to handle all of the mixing and measuring you'll ever have to do because Pyrex glass is built to last!

    A set of three glass Pyrex measuring cups photographed atop a reviewer's black stovetop

    Promising review: "I really just needed a replacement for my 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. I saw this set and decided to get all three. I liked having another single cup one since I only had a plastic one... these are easy to clean and are great when you have hot liquids. Pyrex has made the markings clearer than the ones on my old ones. Pleased with the set." —Joan from Asheville, NC

    Price: $21.99.

    20. An entryway storage bench, because the best way to keep your home clean is to stop making a mess the minute you walk through the door. Coats, shoes, hats, dog leashes; they all go here so you always know exactly where to find them.


    Promising Review: "We love this purchase! It arrived quickly and was easy to assemble! Fits perfectly. Not too heavy, but it seems to be sturdy enough for our need to hold a few shoes and coats for easy access near the door. I would recommend this if you're looking for something simple and affordable." —Sandra from Euharlee, GA

    Price: $82.99(originally $94.99).

    21. A collapsible, wicker laundry hamper for keeping your dirty clothes confined to one singular space that isn't your floor. Handles make it super easy to carry when the washing machine is elsewhere.

    A light natural tan wicker laundry hamper with rope handles photographed on the carpet of a reviewer's home

    Promising review: "So cute and actually functional!! I use it every day. My washer is located in the garage so I can just carry this hamper to the washer and get my laundry done quickly without struggling to carry an arm full of clothes through the house. Plus, if I don't have time to do laundry ... which is always the case, the hamper is attractive enough to leave out." —Grace from Marana, AZ

    Price: $15.99 (originally $31).

    22. A set of three dishwasher-safe, steel Rachael Ray nonstick cookie pans that aren't just for cookies but for baking, roasting, or just re-heating any foodstuffs in your oven. But, also, cookies.

    Three dark gray metallic cooking sheets nested within each other with a red rubberized Rachael Ray logo on each of them

    Promising review: "Nonflimsy pans with great nonsticking quality. Haven’t made cookies but used for bread, chicken, tater tots, fish, and more. No problem easy cleanup. Just let pans cool completely before washing to prevent the warping effect." —Teresa from Corbin, KY

    Price: $30.99 (originally $60).

    23. A rust- and mildew-resistant, hanging shower caddy with suction cup mounting for keeping shampoo and conditioner bottles, bars of soap, razors, and scrub brushes from taking over the very limited (and slippery) shelf space in your bathroom.

    A metallic two-shelf shower caddy holding soap and containers while hanging from a shower head with four sets of hooks for razors and sponges

    Promising Review: "I needed this for a while now but I could not find one I liked. I kept moving my toiletries from one corner of the tub to another and kept having to deal with mildew and eventually mold if I took longer to move or clean. I chose this one because of the storage space and the four sets of hooks at the bottom. The hooks are great for hanging anything of your choice. I personally have my razors on standby and ready. I bought the silver but, it was difficult choosing the color. All look good and mine looks deluxe." —Roger from Los Angeles, CA

    Price: $25.99 (originally $32.99, available in three colors).

    24. A Novogratz powder-coated metal bar cart that's meant for rolling three shelves' worth of booze through your home, but can be co-opted for nearly any other storage needs (think beauty and grooming products or cleaning supplies).

    A gold metallic three-shelf bar cart on four caster wheels filled with bottles and glasses situated atop a colorful rug

    Promising Review: "I have never received anything ordered online that was so exquisitely exactly the way it is pictured and it exceeded my expectations! I am thrilled!" —Laurien from Palm Springs, CA

    Price: $53.99 (originally $99.99).

    25. A stainless-steel Kitchen Aid slow cooker with a dishwasher-safe ceramic insert for those hearty meals, likes stews and soups or large cuts of meat, that take their sweet (and savory) time to reach maximum levels of tastiness and yield maximum quantities of food for the week.

    A metallic silver slow cooker with a black ceramic pot turned on showing condensation under the see-through glass lid

    Promising review: "Great slow cooker!! Nice and big, I can have it cook for a set time with low, medium, or high — and then go to just staying warm! I also really appreciate the handy dandy cord storage on the bottom! Finally, someone thinking about storing this big boy! It seems to be well made. I have only used a couple of times thus far, but I am already impressed!" —Katie from Wayzata,MN

    Price: $99.99.

    26. A stainless-steel, over-the-sink drain tray that rolls up for super easy storage when you're not using it and doubles as a trivet for cooling off piping hot plates and pans.


    Promising review: "Love love love this! I really didn’t want a dish drainer on the counter all the time so I found this cool thing. It rolls up and stores away when you don’t need it and drains into one side of the sink when you do. It’s a soft rubber that feels smooth and packs away easily. I have a large sink and it fits well." —Melissa from Venice, CA

    Price: $24.95 (originally $50).

    27. A freestanding, chrome metal, over-the-toilet storage shelving unit for vertical storage and organizing in the most important room in your home. It's much more fun to call it an etagere, though. Say it with us now, e-ta-gere.

    A chrome, metal, three-shelf organizer positioned over a white toilet bowl in a bathroom holding a plant, a candle and a wicker basket upon its shelves

    Promising Review: "This adds so much extra storage in our counter-less bathroom! I was afraid it would be like a cheap eyesore but it actually helps to fill the bathroom (our bathroom has lots of extra space but no storage or counter space and the extra space looked a bit weird). I’m really quite pleased with this! It’s a bit flimsy but as long as you make sure it’s put together correctly and everything is nice and tight (and you aren’t doing crazy things to it once it’s up) it will do just the trick!" —Lauren from Edmond, OK

    Price: $26.99 (originally $49.99).

    28. A Ninja professional blender with dishwasher-safe parts that totally crushes it all the time (bro), whether it's protein shakes, frozen drinks, purees, or dips and spreads.


    Promising review: "So happy with my new blender. I broke my old blender making protein shakes every day, and I always had to open it up and knock the ice around halfway through the mixing process. This blender is NO joke. No more chunky surprises in your smoothie, no more ice that didn’t get crushed up. Please note that it is very, very loud, and quite large. By far the most intimidating kitchen appliance I have ever owned." —Bergen from Lincoln, NE

    Price: $99.99.

    29. A stainless-steel freestanding paper towel holder so you'll never violently rip off half a sheet or unravel an entire roll ever again thanks to its weighted base and tension arm. No paper towel will ever go to waste ever again!

    A chrome metal paper towel holder with an arm holding the roll of paper towels vertically

    Promising review: "I purchased 4 different simple Human products. The soap dispenser, dishrack, paper towel dispenser, and sink caddy. I love all of them. They make my kitchen look so organized. The paper towel holder looks great and prevents pulling off too much at one time." —Bryn from Oakland, CA
    Price: $25.37.

    Much like Keanu Reeves, these products will never become useless, they will age gracefully, and they will always be there for you even when you forget about them.
