    20 Things You’ll Probably Use For Years After You Buy Them

    Useful, durable finds that you just might wish you'd known about sooner.

    1. A 3-in-1 avocado tool that you definitely need if you eat at least one avocado a week — you'll be able to cut it open, pit it, then slice each half into seven perfectly even pieces before you can say "toast."

    2. A produce saver that does exactly what it says: keeps fruit and veggies fresh longer (up to two weeks), so you actually end up eating more of your food instead of tossing it.

    3. A belt made with full-grain leather, aka a thick single piece that won't break, tear, crack, fray, or split, even if you wear it every single day, year in and year out.

    4. Some tip-out drawers for your kitchen sink, so every time you do dishes from now until who knows when, you have an incredibly convenient storage spot that keeps clutter at bay.

    5. The One Line A Day journal: each page asks you to record a little about that calendar date over the course of five years, so as you flip through each year again, you get to reflect on what's changed — or hasn't!

    6. A small handheld steamer that'll get rid of the wrinkles in your clothing in no time, and without the hassle of pulling out the ironing board. You don't even have to take your clothes off the hanger! This will save you plenty of prep time for years to come.

    7. A few pairs of hiker-favorite merino wool socks that stay in place no matter what your day brings, wick moisture away from your skin, resist odour, and best of all, last for miles and miles without any holes.

    8. A non-slip rubber jar opener so you can effortlessly open the stubbornest of lids with just a simple twist – both now and literally decades from now.

    9. A pack of six wool dryer balls that are good for at *least* 1,000 loads: that means you could use them in one load every single day for over two and a half years without wearing them out.

    10. A small-but-mighty cat brush that'll capture loose fur and help detangle any matted fur — and your cat will love the attention, day after day after day.

    11. A cookbook packed with all kinds of delicious, simple recipes that you'll reach for time and again to figure out what, exactly, you want to make for dinner.

    12. A silicone zip-top sandwich bag that can replace hundreds — if not thousands — of the single-use ones without sacrificing any of the useful function that those old-school ones offered.

    13. A classic Jansport backpack — they're ultra-durable, come with a lifetime warranty, and these days you can get them in all kinds of colors and patterns.

    14. A countertop hydroponic garden kit that will make it unbelievably easy to grow fresh herbs, salad greens, and cherry tomatoes through every season, even the next six winters.

    15. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that'll quickly swirl your dirty brushes in soapy water, then spin them completely dry within 30 seconds. Your skin doesn't appreciate dirty, germy brushes, so now you have no excuse not to wash them! And they'll last a lot longer too.

    16. A refillable Brita water pitcher perfect if your fridge doesn't have a dispenser in the door — besides reducing your water's mercury, copper, and chorine content, it'll also make the stuff from the tap taste soooo much better.

    17. A compact umbrella designed to withstand winds up to 70 miles per hour, repel rain, and open and close at the touch of a button. You'll face so many storms together that by the time this umbrella retires, it'll feel like a good friend.

    18. A wine-saver that will keep all your opened bottles fresh for an extra day or two — and up to a full week — so you get to enjoy every last drop of every single bottle you buy, now until eternity.

    19. A classic Stanley vacuum bottle you truly can count on to keep your coffee (or tea or soup) hot for hours, both tomorrow morning and a morning thousands of tomorrows from now.

    20. And lastly, a Kindle Paperwhite, which will hold thousands of books on it, and the screen looks just like paper — i.e. no glare when you read it in the sun! And did I mention it's waterproof? Take this baby in the bath or by the pool and get your read on.
