    1. A bag re-sealer (that, yes, looks like a teeny hair straightener) for closin' up that chip bag you didn't get through. This gadget heats up and clamps bags shut with its corrugated hot plates, so you can keep your snacks fresh!

    2. A "Bacon Bin" — aka your new *smart* way to dispose of grease, because we do not pour grease down the drain! No we do not. When you've got a piping hot pan of grease and no where to pour, grab this and you're set!

    4. A spring-loaded coin organizer to take care of the change that's always flyin' around your car. Paying for drive-thru meals just became incredibly efficient! Now...if I could only figure something out for my purse.

    5. An under-cabinet lid opener so you don't have to spend your peaceful evening battling a jar. That, my friend, is a waste of time.

    6. Or for smaller bottles and something more visible, a hand-held opener here to rescue you from your kombucha bottle. You love kombucha, you don't love those impossible-to-open lids.

    11. A brush spinner that'll clean up every last bit of makeup from even the dirtiest brushes AND then dry 'em — all in less than a minute. And to even think we've been cleaning our brushes BY HAND this entire time.

    12. A versatile clip to keep your bag off of the dang floor. Seriously, you can use this thing on grocery carts, stall doors, tables, chairs, and in soooo many other public places.

    16. A moisture meter for us no-matter-how-hard-we-try-our-plants-die people that you place deep down into the soil to get a reading of how much water your plant is receiving, so you can adjust your watering frequency accordingly!

    21. A food slicing board with a stainless steel blade that'll quickly cut up veggies (AND CHEESE) in uniform slices thanks to its built-in measuring scale. It's literally a paper cutter...but for food.

    22. An herb stripper designed to easily pluck your favorite greens that can otherwise be extremely time consuming (and annoying!!!) to do by hand. Making dinner after a long day doesn't seem so daunting now!

    23. A handy tool so you can ditch the struggle that is fake eyelash application. It holds the falsies in place so adding glue is easy, and actually attaching them to your lash line is even easier. Thank the heavens, honestly.

    28. A dish brush with a ceramic base that acts as a soap dispenser to make after-dinner cleanup sorta??! fun — and stylish, I mean look at this:

    29. A 3-in-1 avocado tool for splitting, pitting, and slicing with total ease. Avocado! On! Everything!

    30. A snack fork you can literally attach to your favorite jar of pickles. No more dirtying dishes, no more trying to reach the last little guy waaaay down at the bottom of the jar — just pop out the teeny fork, and snack away.
