    1. A dishwasher cleaning tablet you just pop inside the machine and run it through a cycle like normal. While that's happening, grab a pair of UV-protection glasses and brace yourself for how shiny your appliance is going to be when you open it... haha just kidding... unless?!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    These tablets remove odour-causing residue and help get rid of lime and mineral build-up that naturally occurs inside dishwashers. The tablet is designed to last throughout the entire wash cycle, and is recommended for use about once a month. These are safe to use in stainless steel tub and plastic tub dishwashers.

    10. A rapid egg cooker so you don't have to waste your precious time standing over the stove waiting for your eggs to finish cooking. I own this, and lemme tell ya, it's a pretty wonderful thing being able to watch Netflix and not keep a hawk-eye view on my omelette in the mornings.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    When I tell you that I think this is one of my all-time favourite purchases ever, I'm not EGGagerating.... but really, I'm not. I pretty much use this every single day. Let me start by saying that the pieces themselves were self-explanatory. I opened this when I was VERY hungry and therefore had no patience to read an instruction manual, and found it super quick to figure out what to do.

    It can boil up to six eggs at a time. It comes with a little measuring cup with a needle at one end that you simply pierce the larger top of the egg with, place the egg on one of the six slots of the tray with the pierced side facing up, fill the measuring cup to the soft, medium, or hard line depending on your preference, pour the water through center hole, cover the cooker, plug it in, and press the button. It makes a sound in the form of a pretty cute (and TBH, kinda catchy) song when it's ready, so you don't have to sit and wait around. This also comes with a poacher tray and an omelet tray that are just as easy to use! I've been on a kick with the omelet tray lately, because it's just a million times better than having to stand over the stove. Be sure to check out our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!

    11. An internet address and password logbook to help keep track of your important login info for social media, online banking, school portals, and more. Sorry but yourname123 isn't a good password, no matter how easy it is to remember.
