    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are lifesavers. The charcoal are cotton and soooooo comfy for summertime. I have multiple pairs of each color and swear by them. They are great for the gym and just wearing under dresses and skirts. They also provide just enough pressure for my cramps that I can function!!" —MissLee

    2. A 32-oz. Nalgene water bottle to help you remember to stay hydrated — it's so important! I seriously wouldn't drink half as much water if I didn't faithfully fill up one of these up every day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my favorite water bottle. I have two, I leave one with some water in it in the freezer while I drink from the other, and rotate them all day so I always have cold water. Great size, no weird smells or taste, super durable against drops." —texicornn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59+ (available in 26 colors).

    Promising review: "I’m in love with the texture and feel of these, they’re so light and soft they feel barely there. Worn once (around the house, 'working from home') and I didn’t have any issues with riding up or rolling down or feeling impeded in any way. New and satisfied customer" —Lark

    Get them from MeUndies for $18 (available in sizes XS–4XL and 47 colors/prints).

    Plus, they have over 55,000 5-star reviews! ⭐

    Promising review: "I love these sheets! My husband and I just bought a new bed, and I'm really picky of the sheets we use. I like them so much, I'm planning on ordering a few more sets. The price is completely reasonable for king size, which are normally super expensive. I highly recommend them." —Michelle Weber

    Get it from Amazon for $32.97+ (available in nine sizes and 43 colors).

    5. And a set of bedsheet fasteners, because no one likes to wake up in the morning and realize their entire fitted sheet is now bunched up in the corner of their bed.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work really well! I have a 14-inch mattress, so keeping the fitted sheet well-secured has been a struggle until now. One of the best purchases I've made. I followed someone else's advice here of turning the sheet inside out, putting the fasteners on, then putting the sheet on the mattress. Made them very easy to use." —Jayne Voyt

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.95 (available in three colors).

    6. A TubShroom to prevent annoying blockage. Just place it in your drain and let it catch all of your hair before it gets caught in the pipes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. I tried others and they all failed miserably. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Cleanup is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had. I strongly recommend it!!!" —Lawyer For Justice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.66+ (available in five colors and a two-pack).

    7. A set of Reebok face masks that are soft, breathable, and ideal for taking on the heat or working out. They also have a filter pocket and are machine-washable.

    Reebok

    A fellow BuzzFeed Shopping editor swears by these masks for working out! Here's what she had to say:

    "These arrived promptly in two days, and from the minute I put them on I had a feeling they were going to be great for outdoors — I've run in a lot of masks this summer, and I think these are probably the best! They're very soft and lightweight but still clearly protective, the fabric doesn't get as stuck in my mouth when I breathe as other masks do, and I can already tell from the fabric that they're going to wash really well. I also just love that you can't see all the face sweat with this fabric because BOY DO I HAVE A LOT OF IT. They also have a pocket for a filter if you want to add one. Highly highly recommend, these are long-distance runner approved!" —Emma Lord

    Promising review: "This is an awesome workout mask!! Very breathable material with a pocket for adding a filter. By far the best fitness mask I’ve purchased so far. I highly recommend purchasing this for serious fitness advocates." —DAKOTA86SW

    Get a set of three from Reebok for $20.

    8. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream that'll really come in ~handy~ to repair painful blisters and cracked skin after all that hand washing!

    A before-and-after of a very dry hand with many cracks and small cuts compared to a much softer and smoother looking hand with only a couple small dry spots left
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $3.20 (also available in packs of 2 and 12).

    9. A hand-poured soy candle inspired by the city of Charleston so your senses can take a little vacay — while in the comfort of your living room. The candle comes in a cute mini mason jar and has notes of currant, white tea, and florals.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    I received this candle as a gift from a friend and it's so lovely! The company is Black woman-owned and the soy candles are hand-poured in North Carolina. The Charleston Sweet Tea scent reminds me of a summer trip I took to Charleston a few years ago with the friend who gifted it. It smells like berries, flowers, and apples. And it's been burning pretty slowly, which is always a plus because I light it almost every day!

    Get it from Southern Elegance Candle Co. for $20.

    10. A set of drawer organizers to keep your socks paired and your favorite undergarments in sight so you can quickly find what you need in the morning.

    amazon.com

    The set includes four bins: one with six cells for scarves and tights, eight square cells for underwear, seven wide cells for bras, and 24 small cells for socks.

    Promising review: "I love these things, they’re so versatile. I have them all over: drawers, closet shelves, cabinets. I use them for more than just underwear too. I use them for dry art supplies in open shelves and just about anywhere else I need to organize." —Kindle Mac

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in six colors).

    11. An Atlas Coffee Club subscription so you can have fresh coffee delivered to your door every few weeks. You'll get to try new brews from all around the world — a coffee lover's dream!

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, instagram.com

    My BuzzFeed Shopping colleague Kayla Suazo said:

    "My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it's heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality."

    Get a subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for $9+ (available in a half bag, single bag, or double bag and shipments every two or four weeks).

    12. A scalp massager that can help with blood flow and assist in removing any product residue that may be hiding on your scalp.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is just what I wanted! Great for a scalp massage. I wanted a product that would not pull my hair, and did not have hard, plastic seams, to pull or damage my hair. This is it! Very relaxing, to use. It is light, and comfortable to hold. I don't have to worry about straining my hands trying to grip this. I can control the amount of pressure perfectly without scratching my scalp. I bought one for my mom, and two for me! Love these. Great gift, for the natural hair enthusiast, or anyone looking for a nonmotorized scalp massager." —BunnyLove2

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    13. A Rapid Slicer tool to make food prep wayyyy faster — it helps to hold all those awkwardly shaped foods in place (like tomatoes, grapes, etc.) so you can swiftly chop 'em up.

    Rapid Slicer is a small business founded by couple Rob and Cindy Fox.

    Promising review: "I love this slicer! I rarely write reviews, but this literally changed my life. I have fibromyalgia and have trouble gripping things. I also have a host of tiny scars on my hands from cutting myself instead of the vegetables. I am stunned by how easy this is to use, and the protection it gives my hands! And it's low-tech! And it cleans easily! I'm still having trouble believing that a $13 product is doing so much to make my life easier and more painless." —Theresa

    Get it from The Grommet for $12.95.

    14. A foot file so you can scrape off the dead skin and callouses to make your feet soft and smooth again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! Seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    15. A tube of Black Girl Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to use daily that'll protect skin from the sun and provide moisture, without the annoying white residue that is usually left behind.

    Target

    Black Girl Sunscreen is a Black woman-owned business that was founded in Miami in 2016. The brand's products are cruelty-free and formulated without parabens or other harmful chemicals.

    Promising review: "I know as women of color we worry about that ashy/white cast type of look when we put on sunscreen or looking oily, but this sunscreen doesn’t cause either one of those things to happen. It blends into the skin very well immediately, it doesn’t have that sterling sunscreen smell and a little goes a very long way. I highly recommend!" —Kayla

    Get it from Target for $15.99 or Black Girl Sunscreen for $18.99.

    16. A cult-favorite Aztec Secret Indian healing mask made with 100% calcium bentonite clay that'll work magic to deep clean your pores and help fight acne and blemishes. Not only do people love it to treat their face, but customers have also found success using it on their hair, on their feet, and in the bath! We stan versatility.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    There is a bit of mixing involved — you'll need to add some apple cider vinegar for it to do its best work. This product is cruelty-free and formulated without additives or fragrances.

    Promising review: "I first want to share that I typically don’t share reviews but this product has truly helped clear my skin. My adult acne has been out of control for some time now. I’ve tried everything including hormone therapy which didn’t help. I’ve ended up with a scarred face from so much picking at my acne. I’m sooo amazed by this mask. Yes it dries your face but a good moisturizer does the trick. So thankful for this product. I do masks all the time. Most recent was a black sea mask. It cleaned up my blackheads, but my acne remained. This seems to be doing the trick! Try it out! You won’t regret it." —Danielle Torres

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in two sizes).

    17. A popular Always Pan that'll look nice and ~aesthetic~ in your kitchen, help you cook TONS of yummy meals, and be much easier to clean than your old, worn pots and pans. And speaking of which, this baby was designed to replace eight (!!!) traditional pieces of cookware. An icon.

    Our Place, Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    Not only is this pan extremely pretty, it's also versatile! I am far from a chef (pasta is pretty much my go-to), but all of the different functions of this encourages me to try more things. And my favorite feature is probably how easy it is to clean! Whether I'm cooking eggs, chicken, veggies, or whatever, the cleanup is always quick and easy. I never have to leave it to soak for hours or struggle to scrape food off of it. It just wipes clean with a sponge every time! And for someone who doesn't have a dishwasher, an easy after-dinner cleanup means a lot to me. Most of my other pots and pans are old and cheap, but now that I have this I hardly need to use anything else.

    Our Place is a POC-owned business based in Los Angeles. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradable and recyclable materials, and the Always Pan is made in a female-owned factory in China.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best pan I have ever purchased. I have been looking for a good skillet but within a year it's in the trash. Not only is this pan easy to clean, it's a nonstick pan, and you can even use it to steam vegetables. I leave it on my stove top. It maybe pricey but it's worth every penny." —Margaret M.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in eight colors).

    18. A Billie razor subscription so you don't have to worry about reusing your old, dull razor over and over again because you keep forgetting to buy a new one.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These seem to work very well. Other brands had comments about them not sticking well so I went with this brand and am very happy with them. I am using them on my desk at work as well as on the back of my night table at home to keep my charger cords from slipping behind the furniture. Sure works better than Scotch taping the cords to my desk." —bigmag

    Get them from Amazon for $6.96.

    20. A tube of Glossier's Balm Dotcom to soften and repair chapped lips with a combination of castor oil, beeswax, and lanolin, while leaving the perfect hint of color and/or shine (depending on which flavor you go with).

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I use this on my lips once in the morning and once at night and that's it! My lips are baby soft the entire rest of the day and I haven't had any issues with chapped lips since I started using it! You only need a small amount too which is so nice. I love the mint one and will definitely buy again and try other flavors." —Gretchen

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors).

    Read our Balm Dotcom review for more details (#1 on the list).

    21. A hair finishing stick made of natural plant-based ingredients that can help turn that slept-in bun into a perfectly presentable hairstyle in seconds.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    22. Or an edge control gel that'll help lay edges and baby hairs for a sleek look without the flaking and residue.

    amazon.com

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out, "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "Hands-down! The best edge control I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. Stayed all day! No flakes and nongreasy! And this one is not even the strongest in the line. Love this product!" —Seabea2013

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in four sizes).

    23. A dishwasher magnet to prevent you from accidentally putting your dirty dinner plate in with all the clean dishes and then rerunning the whole thing.

    The dishwasher magnet says "clean" on one side and then "dirty" if you rotate it to the other side
    Amazon

    Promising review: "A stylish, functional little magnet. Eliminates the need to wonder if that cup looks dirty or is it just hard water, etc. Also just looks cute on the dishwasher. I do not run mine daily as I have a small household and when it does get filled, more often than I'd like to admit, the clean dishes live in the dishwasher, getting picked off as needed. This makes that process much simpler." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    24. A memory foam seat cushion, because it'll provide you with tons of extra comfort while you're sitting at your desk all day. It's kinda hard to be productive when you're literally in pain.

    amazon.com

    This useful cushion can help to relieve pain in the lower back, lumbar, tailbone, prostate, hip, piriformis, spine, legs, back, and more.

    Promising review: "We have purchased five of these seat cushions, with three as gifts. Two of those we purchased this cushion for have pretty serious sciatica problems. It was so much help for one that he ordered a second for his office chair, so he would not have to carry his first one from the car to the office. Total transformation for him! My husband and I each use one. I've had back surgery, and I can't explain what this seat cushion does for my back issues when driving." —G-mo

    Get it from Amazon for $27.16+ (available in five colors).

    25. An essential oil stick that can help you combat migraines and tension headaches right away. Apply it onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck and you'll actually be able to get through the rest of the day.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    26. A super absorbent, anti-frizz microfiber hair towel to cut your hair-drying time in half, without adding extra heat damage. It'll also keep your hair securely up and out of the way while you brush your teeth, do your makeup, etc.

    Reviewer with a hair towel on their head
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This towel seriously works! Been using it for a couple months now with no complaints. It's a regular staple. I used to use a T-shirt to wrap my hair in for the longest time because towels are bulky, not very absorbent, and tend to add frizz. But the T-shirts would soak through and my hair would still be wet. This DuraComfort towel has been such a welcome solution. It hasn't added frizz and pulls moisture out of my hair in record time." —Emily C

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    27. Or a microfiber towel pillow cover for those who prefer to wash their hair before bed, but don't want your pillow getting soaked. It's super absorbent, has a waterproof lining, and it's gentle on all skin and hair types.

    Kitsch

    I just started using this pillow cover and it's been a great problem-solver since I always shower at night and I never use a blow-dryer. Since I have thick, curly hair it holds a ton of moisture, especially when it's in a braid or a bun (which is usually how I do it before bed). Over the years, I've just been used to my hair getting my pillow wet and I never thought much about it. But, now that I have this innovative pillow case it's honestly so much better. It helps me avoid a bad chill during the night and it saves my pillows from getting gross.

    Kitsch is a woman-owned accessory brand that was founded in 2010. They also sell cute scrunchies, cloth face masks, satin pillowcases, and more.

    Get it from Kitsh for $24.

    28. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets that'll make your favorite cups and mugs look brand new again, so you'll actually want to use them without being grossed out.

    amazon.com

    Just drop in a tablet, let it sit for 15-30 minutes, and rinse!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    Read more about why people love these no-scrub tablets so much!

    29. A bottle of Jergens wet skin lotion perfect for lazy people, because you can apply it while your skin is still wet, before you even step out of the shower. It saves a few minutes and will lock in the hydration your skin needs.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It'd give it 10 stars if I could. Let me start off by saying I am LAAAAAZY. I also hate the way my skin feels after I moisturize. It takes forever to dry and even still there is a gooey, sticky feeling with every moisturizer I use. This eliminates ALL OF THAT. You just have to put it on after you turn off the shower, let it rest on your skin for a couple of minutes and then pat off with your towel. It absorbs super quickly and my legs feel as silky as a dolphin's fin. Jergens you have a customer for life!" —MZ

    Get it from Amazon for $5.32.

    30. A fabric defuzzer for safely removing fuzz, lint, and pilling from your favorite sweatshirt.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors).

    31. A bottle of nail and cuticle care oil that uses a natural blend of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E to soften your cuticles and strengthen your nails.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big four-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    32. Tarte Shape Tape concealer for the ultimate one-and-done beauty product to make any pimples, under-eye bags, or scars go bye-bye in seconds. No more digging through your makeup bag to find four different products, this is all you need!

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    This is my holy grail concealer! I love it so much that I'm always buying it before I run out because I seriously use it every time I put on makeup. Under-eye bags? A pimple? Hyperpigmentation? I DON'T KNOW HER! This stuff seriously covers all my blemishes and it's super easy to apply. The formula is on the thicker side, but it blends wonderfully. It doesn't make you look cakey or leave creases. Plus, it's super convenient to carry around and apply on-the-go. This product is honestly worth the hype.

    Promising review: "I love everything about this product. It's soft and creamy and easy to blend into my skin. It lasts all day and doesn't crease!! It also makes it easier for me to wear just concealer on my more lazy days without looking like an incomplete face. LOVE IT." —Trent U.

    Get it from Tarte for $29 (available in 30 shades).

    33. A pack of reusable mop pads that'll fit on your Swiffer, because they are better for the environment, more cost-efficient, and many reviewers say that they actually work better than the disposable pads. No more rushing to the store when you run out of Swiffer pads!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have to admit I was not sure about this product. I wanted to reduce waste with the disposable pads; but I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to get a super clean floor, spots were easier to clean up, and it didn’t sound like it was scratching my floors. This was easy to use, didn’t use more cleaner than the disposable pads, and got my floor cleaner. Definitely gonna buy more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.97.

    34. A Brevite camera bag because it's lightweight, stylish, and engineered with padding that'll keep your camera and other electronics safe and secure. Plus, it has handy pockets for your laptop, passport, extra clothes, and more.

    Brevite is a family-owned small biz based in Brooklyn, NY. 

    Promising review: "I've always wanted a photography bag to put all my gear that doesn't look like the regular bulky photography bag. This is it! The Runner is discreet, super light and I can fit my X-T3 camera with a lens on, two additional lens and my compact X100F. But the most important feature to me is the laptop sleeve where I can put my 16" Macbook Pro. Great quality bag with durable materials. Love it." —Lauriane M.

    Get it from Brevite for $129 (available in 10 colors).

    35. A Burst Sonic electric toothbrush to get that smile shining brighter than ever before, without making your hand cramp from all the scrubbing.

    This toothbrush has 33,000 sonic vibrations that make brushing SO much less of a chore.

    Promising review: "My teeth have never felt so clean from just a sonic oral care toothbrush. I’ve been using this toothbrush for a few weeks now and I could already see a huge difference. My teeth are visibly whiter. I’d recommend Burst to anyone. My teeth feel like I just went to the dentist for a cleaning!" —Tori

    36. An air purifier with a true HEPA filter designed to help capture 99.97% of airborne particles from your room. 😱 Once it sucks up that pet dander, lint, dust, and more, it'll be a (literal) ~breath of fresh air.~

    The filter should be replaced every six months.

    Promising review: "We wanted a HEPA filter to reduce allergens in our home. Decided to try the 3M model as we use their HVAC filters. Really happy with this unit. It has three speeds and cleans the air in a room pretty fast. The lowest speed produces a 'white noise' that's quiet enough to use at night while sleeping. It's fairly large and has some heft to it, so it's not cheap and flimsy." —Jewelshine

    Get it from Filtrete on Amazon for $143.78 (comes with two replacement filters).

    38. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush to assist you in getting the perfect blowout in *half* the time.

    amazon.com

    The brush is designed with nylon pin and tufted bristles to help with detangling, improving volume and control, while also smoothing the hair. The 1,100-watt power heat can be placed closer to the scalp than your typical hair dryer, helping you get those roots. And this handy device has three heat/speed settings to adjust to your needs.

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow-dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, nondamaged look." —SAHM2011

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99+ (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "This was a first time try for me. I LOVED IT. I am 30 now and i started getting hormonal acne. I tried everything, creams, different face washes, treatments, etc. This has helped so much. First time use, I noticed a difference. The red bumpy hormonal acne was starting to calm down. I kept using it and it kept making my skin smoother and finally the other treatments were able to work. I really recommend this product for skin renewal and acne.

    44. A set of ceiling fan chain pulls, because it's always annoying when you just want to turn on the light, but you end up turning on the fan, and then you have to pull it three more times to get it to shut off.
