    1. 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.

    the bedsheet fasteners clipped to a sheet to hold it in place on the underside of a mattress

    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

    2. A simple and elegant faux leather planner with a pen holder and inner pocket so you can keep all your planning items in order at all times. Use it to write notes, remember upcoming events, and more.


    What it includes:

    –Each monthly spread contains an overview of the month and a notes section

    –Includes calendar stickers, two ribbon bookmarks, a yearly overview, list of holidays, and contacts section

    –Reference information for states, capitals, and time zones

    –88 additional note pages

    Promising review: "I have finally found the day planner that is PERFECT for me. Most are too big or too small. I don't like the silly ones that are, I guess, for teenaged girls with images of kittens or flowers. I don't like the ones that have a slot for every 30 min. This one is big enough that I don't have to scrimp my writing. But it's small enough so that if I need to take it with me, I can easily fit it into my tote. It's very stylish looking so I can impress my friends. :-) And I love the little holder on the outside where I can hook in a pen. Don't have to search around for something to write my appts. I'm finally happy with my day planner." —Marianne Beasley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    3. A set of wine aerators to trick your guests into thinking that $8 bottle of Moscato is something much fancier.

    Promising review: "These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don't always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. They greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can't beat the price!" —AshBash

    Plus, the hooks have a side-opening attachment for easy installation, so they won't damage your seats.

    Promising review: "I love these! I recently purchased a smaller car and don't have room for my purse in the front seat anymore. These books are awesome and sturdy." —Erin

    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 on Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    See a BuzzFeeder's full review of these space savers (#1).

    Promising review: "Great for pantry organization. I ended up with three sizes. The tall thinner ones for spaghetti. The medium sized containers fit a 5 lb. bag of flour. The largest containers fit a 7 lb. bag of brown sugar. Worth the cost if you are tired of your pantry looking messy. Based on the quality I expect these to last many years without needing to be replaced. Air tight lids work well and are very simple to use and clean." —Tonya murray

    Get them from Amazon for $14.13+ each (available in 12 sizes).

    7. A Home Chef meal subscription so you can have oven-ready meals that'll make your guests say, "Wow, did you really cook that??" No more ordering a pizza every time your parents come to visit!

    before-and-after of someone's hangers looking messy with clothes falling off of them compared to a much neater closet with all matching hangers

    Promising review: "These hangers are seriously low profile enough to give you close to twice the amount of space in your closet. Probably not necessarily a good thing, but I revamped my closet with these instead of donating a large portion of clothes to Goodwill (although I had already donated two other closets full until a friend recommended these hangers) and now my clothes all fit neatly! And they are sturdy, no more cracking hangers when you pull off an item of clothing in a tizzy. I'm very happy with my purchase of a few packs of these hangers. It cost pennies in comparison to a closet organizer system." —Lisa427

    9. And a set of clothing dividers that'll save you time and energy. No more digging through your entire closet just to find one jacket.

    reviewer's closet with their clothes divided by the labels, which read "T-shirts, Dress Shirts, Skirts, and Jackets"

    The tags come with 48 labels so you can customize them to your individual needs.

    Promising review: "Surprisingly not a common product to find in stores or online. Been helpful in organizing my closet. Simple and easy to use. Multiple label sheets were a big help in marking up clothes by type. Or you could printout your own labels and they should stick just fine. No more guessing or making excuses for being disorganized! Would definitely recommend it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $13.99 (available in eight styles).

    10. A convenient bedside caddy for when you don't have space for a nightstand, but you still need a place for your glasses, tablet, and journal. You can easily attach it to the side of any bed or table with two pairs of hook and loop fasteners.

    Promising Review: "Bought this to hold my 11” MacBook Air, my small Star Wars pocket journal, my Apple TV controller, sound bar controller, glasses, and TV controller and some perfect and the size is perfect. Very sturdy for the light weight I’ve applied, looks great, and very handy to keep my need to have items close while I do my dialysis in bed. Perfect for the couch potato connoisseur." —Christian

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in nine colors).

    11. A mesh desk organizer that'll help keep your desk clutter-free and set up for success. You can store folders and paperwork in the upper slots and fill the lower compartments with notebooks, push pins, sticky notes, and more.

    Promising Review: "Wonderful product that meets expectations. I bought this product since it had several features I was looking for — file sectionals for papers, shelf for folders or papers, drawer bins for various items. It really saved me from buying several different products or buying something with features I didn't need. The construction and material are solid and sturdy like you'll find in high-end offices. The drawers work seamlessly, sliding as if riding on air. Product description was spot on. Delivery was fast. Packaging was sensible." —Sid

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87 (available in black or silver).

    FYI, this is a successful Shark Tank product!

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize, it would be one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. That's why I gave it five stars!" —Tessa Forbes

    13. A chic shaggy rug to pull together your bedroom or living room and really make a statement that says, "An adult (with good taste) lives here."

    Rugs USA

    Promising review: "We purchased the 8.6” x 11.6” rug for our living room, and I love the vibe that it added to the space! I was worried about shedding because of other reviews, but it hasn’t been an issue at all for us. It’s certainly a thinner rug (think like a tapestry style rug vs. a plush, squishy rug), but it doesn’t bother us. It’s not scratchy on our feet, and we have tiny people who roll all over the floor and don’t mind it. It’s beautiful quality — well worth the cost." —Rasberryfamily

    Get it from Rugs USA for $34.70+ (available in 12 sizes, five shapes, and five colors).

    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).

    15. A three-tier storage cart that can hold anything that needs sorting, from bathroom toiletries to makeup products to craft supplies.

    reviewer's white cart filled with beauty products

    Promising review: "This is so cute and helpful! Add some magnetic cups on the side for extra storage and organization if you want! I use it for organizing my bathroom so I don't hear 'mommy wheres the toothpastes?' And 'hey we need toilet paper' when we have 10 more rolls LOL!" —Leslie brewster

    Get it from Amazon for $34.69.

    16. A gorgeous art print you can frame on the wall to make it seem like you know a thing or two about art and decor. One statement piece like this can totally transform a room.

    reviewer's organizer filled with various makeup products

    Promising review: "If you pay attention, it’s easy to assemble. I really didn’t think it would hold as many items as it does. My counter is a lot less cluttered than before and my morning routine is a lot easier and faster. It also looks nicer than I expected." —dpacker

    Get it on Amazon for $19.99.

    18. A dual-sided hanging organizer for all of your small possessions, like hair accessories, tights, or beauty products.,

    Promising review: "This is a very well made closet organizer! The pockets are able to expand to allow for various items to fit. I put underwear and socks in the smallest, upper pockets and tank tops and leggings/genie pants in the bottom large pockets. The middle size pockets fit winter socks, bras, or two pairs of athletic socks nicely. Plus, the pockets are clear so you can see what is in each! Very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy again." —Awhatchamacallit

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    19. A Goodful 12-piece non-stick cookware set so you can finally toss the cookware you've been accumulating since college and have a nice, matching set.

    Promising review: "I snagged a set of these pots on Prime Day because our old set was worn out. Wow! They are silky smooth, nothing sticks at all to these babies. And they’re dishwasher safe. I have only had them a few weeks but I have no complaints so far! I added a picture of the griddle after cooking 4 eggs- and there’s not a thing sticking on it! I’m impressed by this relatively inexpensive set." —NattyPoo87

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "This sponge absorbs just as well as any other, but the scrub pad is what makes this a must have for washing dishes and pots and pans. It is safe for Teflon coating but tough enough for steel and aluminum. The scrub pad also lasts longer than any other I've used. Scotch Brite pads also stay bonded to the sponge better than any other." —Carmelo Noce

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.13.

    22. A mesh wall-mounted mail sorter with key hooks and a mini cork board so you won't misplace your keys or lose any important bills.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    23. A carpet and upholstery stain remover to finally get rid of that huge spaghetti stain in the middle of your living room carpet.

    Promising reviews: "If you are ever thinking you might need this, TRUST ME you do! This is only the second review I’ve ever written, but felt like I needed to because this product is so amazing. My 2-year-old threw up chocolate milk on our cream carpet. It was a complete disaster. I tried everything and nothing even made a dent in it, until this. It’s also scentless, which was great because I got the stain up right before my little girl’s bedtime. TOP NOTCH!" —Jillian Briggs

    Get it from Amazon for $12.80.

    the rack with 14 small hooks hanging in a closet and holding belts and ties

    Promising review: "Very strong and well made. I like that it holds many belts. It's so much better than having a clutter of belts in a drawer. This makes it easier to store and easier to access each belt. The metal is heavy duty. I can't imagine it breaking ever. Hangs well in my closet without any bulkiness. I would recommend to anyone to store belts or ties instead of keeping them in a drawer." —Sassie23

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    This combination notepad and mousepad has a space for a pen and has different categories you can fill in so you know what to tackle each day.

    Promising review: "The calendar is incredible handy for keeping track of projects at work. There's plenty of room for writing down daily tasks — I've been known to cram in several tasks in a day's column for particularly busy weeks. The spot for the pen is really handy, too. And I love the positive affirmations for each day! The whole thing is a great vibe for the week. Quality wise this product is excellent. The paper is sturdy, and each week tears off easily from the side. It arrived plastic wrapped and in good condition." —Katie Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in four designs).

    29. An Away carry-on designed with a hidden laundry bag, a TSA-approved combination lock, an ejectable battery to charge your phone, and 360° wheels so you can look like a well-traveled professional for all future trips.,
