    22 Products I Don't Understand How You've Lived Your Whole Life Without

    ♫ "Cause you show me something I can't live without" ♫ —the Jonas Brothers, and also you to all these products.

    1. A game-changing pair of no-tie shoelaces you can use to turn any pair of shoes into comfy, perfect-fitting slip-ons and banish gross, hazardous dangling shoelaces forever. Just ask the over 11,000 (!!!) positive reviewers.

    2. The Rocketbook Fusion notebook and planner, which — like all Rocketbook products — allows you to upload your handwritten notes to your devices and reuse the pages over and over just by wiping them clean with water. But this one is extra awesome, because in addition to classic lined and grid pages, it also has planner, calendar, and brainstorming pages, so you can have all your important notes ~write~ in one place.

    3. A set of top-rated erasable pens because, in the immortal words of Queen Hannah Montana, everybody makes mistakes.

    4. A handy leather headphone and cord wrap, which, not to be hyperbolic about it or anything, might just save you freaking years of your life that would otherwise be spent untangling your earbuds.

    5. A convenient laundry detergent cup holder that rests neatly under the detergent jug to stop you from making your usual soapy mess. Because anything that makes laundry less of a pain in the butt is exactly what you need in your life.

    6. A cute cupholder car garbage can perfect for anyone who has ever, er, mistaken their center console for an actual trash receptacle. In other words, all of us.

    7. Nature Republic aloe gel, a K-beauty wonder that over 1,700 reviewers love for everything from ahh-worthy sunburn relief to moisturizing, skin-clearing miracles.

    8. A personal horoscope and birthstone necklace that may be the coolest and most versatile piece of splurge-worthy jewelry you can find. Why? It's available in every combo of star sign and birthstone, and it's got a sliding adjustable clasp, meaning it can be pretty much any length you want and pair with any neckline.

    9. A plush Bob Ross, because there's honestly nothing you need more in your life than someone who'll snuggle with you and tell you your mistakes are just happy accidents.

    10. A breathable, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking weighted blanket that will basically make you feel like you're curled up in a warm hug and can help improve sleep and reduce anxiety.

    11. A sleek and sturdy phone case with elastic straps that'll make your phone about a zillion times easier to hold, not to mention leave you wondering why all phones don't just come like this. It would really help out the clumsy folks out there (read: me).

    12. Genius dip clips that are the answer to every picky eater, mess-phobe, and condiment lover's prayers.

    13. The McCormick / BuzzFeed Tasty seasoning kit, which comes with five different delish spice blends here to ensure that even those of you who are cooking novices will never make a bland dinner again.

    14. Multifunctional, colorful luggage grips designed to make traveling with a big ol' suitcase suck less in two major ways. They'll make gripping the handle of a heavy bag way comfier AND help you easily spot your suitcase at baggage claim.

    15. The Ultimate Excuse Generator: Over 100 Million Excellent Excuses, a hilarious flipbook that'll let you put together almost endless combinations of words and phrases to help you get out of pretty much anything — or at least do a ROFL-worthy job trying. Now, where was this when my college acquaintance wanted me to help them move?

    16. A reusable grocery bag that not only folds up into a compact pouch, but has a strap long enough to be worn crossbody. Because if there's one thing on Earth that literally everyone hates, it's the pain of having to carry heavy grocery bags with their too-short handles digging into your hands.

    17. A clever split pie pan so which dessert to have will be one decision you'll never have to make again. Because the answer is BOTH; it's always both.

    18. A magical (yet totally Muggle-world-wearable) Harry Potter blouse with an adorable little hat and wand on the collar and the Hogwarts crest on the back that's basically every Potterhead's fashion-meets-fandom dream come true.

    19. Tarte Stay Spray vegan setting spray, a paraben- and cruelty-free miracle spritz that's make with refreshing cucumber, aloe extracts, and vitamin E and can get your makeup to actually last all dang day. I'm talking 16 hours, people!

    20. A LOL-worthy double-sided bar of soap for anyone who has ever said "ick" when they remember they use the same thing to clean both their butt and their face and would like to be able to keep track of what's been where, or who just misses the good ol' middle school insult "buttface."

    21. And a pair of OMG-worthy burger and fries earrings, aka the statement-making snack your lobes have been craving.
