    37 Useful Things You Should Be Proud Of Yourself For Buying, You Responsible Person, You

    Look at you, impulse buying a garment steamer instead of another tube of Fenty lipstick.

    1. An easily portable (and even packable!) handheld steamer to save you trips to the cleaners and keep your favorite shirt looking like the day you bought it. "Hopelessly" wrinkled clothes may not be so hopeless after all.

    2. A handy Souper Cubes freezer tray that makes it ~souper~ easy to freeze a half- or full-cup portion of notoriously hard-to-freeze things like soup, sauces, or other liquid dishes and ingredients. Then just pop out as many cubes as you need for a meal or recipe and thaw!

    3. A clever and cute car garbage can designed to fit in your cupholder and the other pockets of your car you've been using as if they were a trash can for years. Heads up — they're not, and this baby is much easier to empty and clean. Not to mention, you won't be embarrassed by the mess when giving friends a ride.

    4. A two-in-one herb stripper and chopper with nine holes for stripping everything from rosemary to kale, plus a covered blade you can open up when it's chop o' clock. Herbie: Fully Loaded is no longer just a film from your childhood, it's also the perfect way to describe the well-seasoned, flavor-loaded dishes this'll help you make.

    5. A convenient four-slot spoon rest, because who actually uses just one utensil when cooking?? This baby was designed with all your drippy spoons, spatulas, and tongs in mind.

    6. Wet & Forget shower spray, which'll seriously cut down the time you spend cleaning your bathroom *and* eliminate even the most stubborn stains. True to its name, all you have to do is spray your shower or tub, let it sit overnight, and rinse it the next morning to reveal a cleaning miracle. It works so well, you only need to use it once a week!

    7. Reusable beeswax and organic cotton cling wrap in cute prints that'll do an un-bee-lievably great job covering all your containers while helping you create less plastic waste. ~Buzz~worthy, indeed.

    8. Keurig-cleaning cups that can be used with any Keurig single-cup machine and will keep your homemade brews tasting their best, eliminating any residue from old batches that's been making them taste like the crappy cup of coffee Buddy buys Jovie in Elf.

    9. A Schitt's Creek dishwasher magnet so the Rose siblings can help save you the struggle of remembering (or yelling to your roommates) if it would be ~schitty~ to toss a dirty dish into the partially-full dishwasher. Honestly shocked sweet, overworked Twyla didn't spend her lottery winnings on 100 of these for the café.

    10. A clear shower curtain liner with roomy mesh pockets to keep all your products within arm's reach, but out of sight of others. Visitors will think you're the only human alive whose bathroom isn't full of unsightly, half-full shampoo bottles.

    11. Miraculous Folex instant carpet spot remover that also works on upholstery to make stains do a Houdini-level vanishing act. It's also odor-free for scentsitive folks.

    12. Arm & Hammer cat litter deodorizer, which is made with stink-busting baking soda to help save you from the stench of your catto's box. You love your kitty, but let's face it — they're nasty.

    13. Knee-high compression socks woven with copper that'll help increase blood flow and reduce swelling and soreness when you're on your feet from morning 'til night, or even if you're just going for a morning run or taking a long flight. Bonus: These come in lots of cute color and pattern options!

    14. A roll-up dish rack that's so much more than a dish rack. It'll save you a ridiculous amount of counter space, both during cooking and cleanup, since you can use it to dry dishes, thaw meat, and strain veggies, or even as just another place to put cutting boards and dishes during meal prep. And when you're done, you can just roll it up and put it under the sink!

    15. Handmade shower steamers made with energizing peppermint, rosemary, and lemon essential oils to help you start your day on the right note. They're relaxing like a bath bomb, but much more practical for folks who only have time for a quick shower in the morning.

    16. Washable microfiber mop pads that'll fit on your trusty Swiffer WetJet or similar mops so you can kick wasteful and pricey disposable pads to the curb. They even pick up more gunk, so you'll wonder why you haven't been using these the whole time.

    17. A ridiculously convenient roll-up silicone water bottle ideal for anyone who's constantly on the go and always has too much to schlep, but also knows they importance of staying hydrated.

    18. A sanitizing handheld steam cleaner you can use to spot treat icky patches all over your home *or* clean larger areas. No mess is a match for it, and it's oh-so-satisfying to use.

    19. A chic folding desk perfect for crafting a makeshift office in even the smallest of apartments, because work-from-home times continue and your housemates are kind of tired of you dominating the kitchen table with all your papers and devices.

    20. A ridiculously durable weatherproof notebook that you can use anywhere. It's got the ~write~ stuff to withstand the elements and the wear-and-tear that would send your other everyday carry items running for cover.

    21. A paws-itively amazing rubber pet hair broom with a built-in squeegee designed to sweep up all that shedding (and even liquids!) like no other. It's def a must for anyone who ever has to clean up after their pet, but can be used on non–fur baby–related spills too.

    22. Goo Gone's kitchen degreaser, which, well, gets the goo gone! Which is good, because from your stove to your microwave to your counters and shelves, your cooking routine leaves a lot of surfaces gooey (same — no shame).

    23. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner, a beeswax and orange oil formula that's basically like a spa treatment for your wood surfaces. In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading, so it's time to cue a rom-com makeover montage for your cabinet doors.

    24. Impressive silver-polishing wipes to get your most prized jewelry, silverware, and decor shining like new again. You might need to wear sunglasses to handle all that sparkle.

    25. A handy "All out of" shopping checklist notepad complete with common grocery items organized by category for you to check off to build your shopping list, plus blank spaces for your less-common needs. It's perfect for those of us who've sometimes forget what exactly it is we need to remind ourselves to remember.

    26. A helpful and amazingly affordable 27-piece mini tool set pretty much everyone should have on hand for tiny fix-it-yourself moments. It's kinda cute, too, and I never thought I'd say that about tools!

    27. A bottle of The Bucko soap scum and grime remover spray that'll send all the icky soap scum in your tub packing — for good.

    28. A Billie razor starter kit, a cult-fave shaving set that BuzzFeed Shopping editors talk about more than pretty much any other product (and we talk about a lot of products). The kit includes a razor, a magnetic holder, and two blades for under $10. It's a practical, use-every-day purchase that'll still feel like a treat.

    29. An under-desk cycling machine that's been a game changer for me personally. This wonder lets you turn your endlessly sedentary desk job (or even your Netflix binge) into an opportunity to get your blood pumping. It's got eight resistance settings so you can start easy, and people also recommend it for physical therapy and senior citizens.

    30. Waterproof vacuum-sealed space-saving bags for anyone who's ever wanted to literally shrink their clutter. Pop your stuff inside and use your hose-ended vacuum cleaner to remove all the extra air, then ooh and ahh about how small your storage problems now seem.

    31. A genius slicing tool that'll allow you to hold tricky foods like cherry tomatoes, shrimp, bread, meat, and bagels steady without putting your fingers in harm's way. It'll also seriously reduce your chopping time when you're prepping a salad!

    32. An as-seen-on-TV Ove Glove made of flame-resistant, 540-degree-heat-tolerating materials like the ones used for firefighter gear. As if that wasn't enough to intimidate your current oven mitt, the glove style allows for a much better, less clumsy grip.

    33. A leather cleaner to buy when every other method you've tried has come so close, yet ~sofa~r from getting the stains out of your beloved leather couch (or jacket, or purse, or office chair...).

    34. An incredible instant drain opener kit you can use on toilet, sink, and tub drains alike. It works so quickly and easily, you'll go from clueless to the go-to, plumber-replacing person all your roommates rely on in the blink of an eye (or the pull of a handle).
