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

    *Extremely Sharpay and Ryan voice* ♫ I finally foundddddd...the products I've been lookin' fo-o-or! ♫

    1. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes, which are — get this — pretty miraculous. They can nourish and revive even those plants you were pretty sure you had zero chance of keeping alive.

    2. Ingenious grocery bag handles with not one, but two life-changing functions — they allow you to carry way more bags at a time and keep said bags closed so you don't spill spaghetti sauce all over your car (again).

    3. A pack of vegan and cruelty-free deodorant wipes you're never gonna want to leave home without. Because we all know that just swiping on deodorant in the morning simply isn't gonna keep you smelling fresh from work to the gym to a date.

    4. An amazingly affordable and amazingly comfy pair of flats that just might be the perfect go-everywhere shoes you've been dreaming of, even if you're ~strapped~ for cash.

    5.'s fun, spacious, and perfectly-arranged 17-month planner, which, if you're anything like me, you may come to rely on so much you start referring to it as your Horcrux. Mine basically holds a piece of my soul at this point, tbh.

    6. Truly OMG-worthy corn holders that you desperately need in your life for two reasons. 1) It's about time you were able to eat corn on the cob without your hands becoming a buttery, salty mess, and 2) THEY ARE LITTLE PINEAPPLES WITH SUNGLASSES.

    7. Neuro Gum, aka a caffeinated gum that's an amazingly simple cure for the mid-day blahs.

    8. Goo Gone bandage and adhesive remover, an alcohol-free formula capable of getting pretty much anything you don't want on your body off. I'm talking gum in your hair, adhesive residue, ink, and temporary tattoos. Oh, and the pain of peeling off a bandage? History.

    9. Super-portable Shout stain remover wipes that'll save the day (and your clothes) time and time again.

    10. A handy beauty spatula, because you spend good money on your makeup and skincare products and should be able to use every 👏 last 👏 drop. 👏

    11. NYX Butter Gloss, a unicorn among lip products. Yes, I'm talking about a gloss that's actually hydrating, smooth, and the perfect shade. Oh, and the under-$5 price tag isn't bad, either.

    12. A downright brilliant dual-filtering water bottle so you can safely quench your thirst anywhere — it filters out 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.9% of parasites, plus reduces smells, chlorine, and aftertaste.

    13. A wall-mounted hair dryer holder that's a game-changer for both people with limited mobility and people who just want to make their styling routine a heck of a lot easier.

    14. LOL-worthy yet brilliant shoe condoms, which work just like their safe-sex counterparts but are made to protect your favorite kicks, not your know.

    15. Adhesive earlobe patches ear to lend some support when you want to rock those fabulous (but super heavy) earrings.

    16. An amazing argan oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera hair serum here to rescue your dry, frizzy summer hair for way less than the cost of a trip to the salon.

    17. DampRid moisture absorber, convenient little tubs of absorbent crystals to mil-dew away with humid, musty smells and help reduce the growth of mold.

    18. A striped tee that'll make you wonder why you've ever worn basic striped tees, when you could have been wearing one with a freaking UNICORN on it.

    19. A waterproof, 13-pocket purse organizer that over 1,000 reviewers swear by to help them actually find stuff in their abyss of a handbag.

    20. And some absolutely magical Golden Snitch sneakers from the new Vans x Harry Potter line that are the fun-yet-practical statement shoes you've been seeking for ages now.
