Note: Not all submissions are from Community users.
1.A Noxzema deep cleansing cream made with eucalyptus oil to rejuvenate skin and remove the day's built-up dirt and grease while also leaving your face soft and hydrated.
2.A set of Pyrex baking dishes and mixing bowls that can stand the test of time. Go ahead, use them for Thanksgiving, birthday cakes, family dinners, and all the things in between.
3.An $8 eye cream for moisturizing and helping smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to give you glowing, radiant skin.
4.A antiseptic cleansing spray you can reach for when unexpected minor cuts, scrapes, and nicks happen. Bactine's no-sting and pain-relieving formula means you can jump back into your day.
5.A soap bar that'll look the toughest, I just chased my escaped dog and fell into a mud hole stains straight into the eyes and banish them for good. Good day, sir. I said, GOOD DAY.
6.A handy pastry blender to give *you* the control to chop and dice so your foods and doughs come out the perfect consistency — juuuust in time for pie season.
8.An egg cooker to do the work for you so you can create perfect boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs every time — all without the stress.
9.A bar of Yardley's lavender soap that not only washes, but leaves behind such a delightful scent that this buyer leaves it in her linen closet to give everything a clean smell.
10.A powder cleaner for walls, floors, and wood that'll give you some impressive before-and-afters you'll want to show to everyone.
11.A set of clamp-top jars that'll keep pantry food fresh — and just to make your cabinets look nice and organized.
12.A roll-on topical gel to help relieve muscle and joint pain. It creates a cooling sensation on the skin and acts fast so you can feel some dang peace.
13.A pack of Goody's aspirin so when a midday headache starts to creep in after staring at your screen for three hours, you're ready to tackle it before it really hits.
14.A rosebud salve that can do a ton more than just hydrate dry skin. You can use it to tame frizzy fly-aways and unruly brows, and to give your lips a soft pink tint.
15.A fancy pair of kitchen scissors to quickly chop all the veggies you need for a delicious salad — ya know, because we can all use more things to make our lives easier.
16.A bottle of Johnson's baby oil you can use to remove even the toughest of makeup. If it's gentle enough for a newborn baby's skin, it's gentle enough for your face.
17.A wooden T-mop, AKA the Cuban mop — simply use your old towels on the end and you can do everything from mopping the floors to dusting the ceilings just like this user.
18.A champion food processor guaranteed to become your kitchen's most trustworthy sidekick. Cuisinart makes tons of models — this is the mini one, so it's a space-saver!
19.A tub of good ol' Crisco that'll take your baking — and most importantly your cookies — to an entirely new level of yumminess.
20.Nighttime Theraflu because cold and flu season is approaching and you should be prepared the second you feel a sniffle or scratchy throat coming on.
21.A topical cough suppressant that'll save you on sick days. I can also vouch for this because as a kid, my parents drenched me in it (especially on my feet — not kidding!) to help with colds and congestion.
22.A simple astringent, because dirt-filled pores have no place on your skin and this cleanser will keep it that way.
23.A classic KitchenAid stand mixer you'll never regret splurging on, because they practically last forever — my mom still has the same one from when I was a kid!
24.A garlic salt seasoning you can put on almost everything you eat to make it instantly taste 100 times better.
25.A bottle of Dawn dish soap, because believe it or not, this stuff goes WAAAAY beyond scrubbin' dishes. It can remove stains from laundry, polish car wheels, clean greasy cabinets, and even help relieve pets from fleas.
26.A variety pack of mesh garment and bra bags that'll protect your delicates and lingerie pieces from snagging in the washer so you can keep your best items in the best shape possible.
27.A Lodge pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet, because every kitchen needs one. Plain and simple! They last a lifetime when taken care of, get better over time, and make food taste even more delicious.
28.An olive oil-based facial cleanser for gently and easily removing makeup because the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is spend forever washing your face.
29.And lastly, an organic multipurpose soap that can be used to relieve acne, heal minor cuts, and do basic cleaning jobs around the house!
Ugh, so much family wisdom. I want to cry.
