    1. An ingenious cereal cup with separate holes for the milk and cereal, so you can simply take a sip of the perfect, non-soggy breakfast while you're on the go. Just know that this means you now have ZERO excuses for skipping the most important meal of the day.

    2. Super-slim, velvet-coated hangers that over 7,000 (!!!) reviewers swear by to save space in their closets and help stop their clothes from slipping off onto the floor.

    3. A luxurious silk pillowcase beloved by over 5,000 reviewers that'll give new meaning to the phrase "beauty sleep," in case you'd like bed head to basically be optional.

    4. A simple yet revolutionary habit calendar that just might be what you need to finally do all the stuff you keep saying you're gonna do. It's got 12 months' worth of planning pages with space to track daily, weekly, and monthly habits and goals to help you be your most badass self.

    5. Or The Hero's Journal, an incredibly creative 90-day planner that'll make achieving any goal feel like an epic adventure. It's got space to map out your plan and break your quest into "chapters," list enemies and allies (lol but also helpful), and plenty of room to reflect.

    6. A Guzzle Buddy, the as-seen-on-Shark Tank product that you can pop right into your beloved bottle of vino to aerate it and drink it on the couch in your PJs in a (slightly) more dignified way than usual. It also helps make it VERY clear that you're not sharing.

    7. A fleece-lined hoodie/blanket/poncho thing, because it seems that at long last someone has invented a cure for winter.

    8. A time-stamped glass water bottle that's probably the closest thing you're gonna get to a little fairy tapping you on the shoulder every hour to remind you to drink water.

    9. An adjustable posture corrector here to help with the seemingly impossible task of retraining your body to stand up straighter. But don't worry, I know you're no ~slouch~.

    10. A so-adorable-it-should-be-illegal Pusheen crossbody purse that any cute connoisseur simply must own, I don't make the rules.

    11. 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.

    12. A hella convenient roll-up toiletry kit with a removable mirror that can be hung up in your camper, on a bathroom wall, or wherever. It's basically a dream come true for anyone who's not comfy traveling without a full medicine cabinet.

    13. A lightweight jacket you'll wear all spring long and that'll leave every other hoodie and windbreaker you own in the dust. It pretty much does everything — it is odor-controlling, sweat-wicking, and quick-drying, plus provides UPF 50+ and is made from recycled materials. If that's not enough? It's machine-washable, too.

    14. An adorable-yet-practical cat fountain that your fur baby might wonder how he lived without. Cats prefer to drink running water, and this is a heck of a lot cuter and less intrusive than them drinking from the sink.

    15. Or a purring plush toy that'll be a game-changer for anxious kitties. Press a button, and a recorded purr will sooth them for two minutes. And even when its quiet, it's sure to be their new BFF (sorry, you've been replaced).

    16. A subscription to meal kit delivery service Home Chef, which will bring you all the ingredients you need to cook meals you'll actually be excited to eat. Because ordering less takeout doesn't have to mean more trips to the grocery store.

    17. A sleek and clever multitool pen that's a ruler, ballpoint pen, touchscreen stylus, level, and a flat- and Phillips-head screwdriver all in one and is sure to become your DIY project MVP (most valuable product).

    18. Double-sided fashion tape strips so you can finally wear those low-cut tops and stubborn dresses that have been stuck in the back of your closet without flashing the world. 😳

    19. LOL-worthy period socks, because you already have designated period underwear. Besides, there's never a time of the month where you need cute socks emblazoned with a kitty and ice cream more.

    20. A primer mask that's a genius invention, IMHO. It'll help you get glowing and leave your whole dang face primed for a great makeup look in a far more luxe and spa-like way than your usual liquid primer. Oh, and did I mention it's less than a buck??

    21. And a truly majestic piece of art that no home should be without. Yes, I'm talking about Handsome Squidward.

    Realizing you've probably been doing life wrong this whole time without these game-changers:
