    Promising review: "These brass cable organizers are beautiful and high quality. I’m using two of them to keep a plug-in sconce cord attached to the wall and to direct the cord to the electrical outlet. These little gold pieces add a touch of functionality and glamour to the sconces. Exactly what I was looking for." —Amy Margolis

    Promising review: "We have old cupboards, without the drawers that pull out to make access easier. Before we got this rack, our pots and pans were a jumble in a cupboard beneath the cook top. We have so much more space now that the skillets are stacked on this rack. A side benefit is that the nonstick pans don't get scratched because they aren't stacked inside one another. We love it." —Susan E.

    3. A sturdy hanger stacker that'll get your type A blood PUMPING when you realize how easy it is to grab the one you need. This...it's beautiful. :')

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is annoying enough, to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It doesn't wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle!" —Kara Adams

    4. A custom kids' file box so you can thoughtfully hold onto all their best Picasso paintings and stories as they grow up. You can choose from a variety of labels, plus a good range of font and color selection, making this box truly your own.

    5. A set of linen organizers that actually break apart and fold down, making it incredibly easy to grab the sheet you need. This gives me the chills, it's *so* organized.

    6. A Meater smart thermometer that'll give you an accurate reading of your food's internal temperature, because you do not "guess" when it comes to cooking. It comes with a handy app that tells you the temp and then estimates how long it will take to finish cooking.

    This is such a handy little device, and I am believer that everyone who cooks meat should have one in their kitchen. It's small and essentially foolproof — just poke through to the center of what you're cooking, and the app will tell you the temp and the time remaining until it's done. My dad has one too, and has used it on both his charcoal and Traeger grill, and it works perfectly. Please, save yourself the hassle of, "...is this done yet?" and just get this!

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

    7. A boot organizing system with handy clips for keeping your larger shoes from flopping over and losing their shape. Plus it keeps them off of the floor and gives you even *more* room for smaller pairs underneath.

    8. A nail polish case that comes with stackable trays and enough slots to hold up to 48 bottles. The organization...it brings a tear to my eye.

We didn't panic, my daughter reached under the sink for the can and put out the flames in less than a minute. I honestly don't know what I would have done to put out a grease fire without it. Now I'm on a mission to make sure all my friends and neighbors have this in their kitchen. I feel like we could have lost everything in our home. I'm so grateful for this product." —Justine Grayson

    Promising review: "Cooking at home, I always tend to make a big mess on the counters and use a bunch of plates and bowls. This set allowed me to consolidate and organize everything. So helpful. Love the save of space and the containers are great. The other ones I've seen on Amazon doesn't have leak proof containers or some didn't even have lids. After researching the other choices, I had to go with this one. Solid construction and practical containers. Product is as described." —Hub Ulrich

    This even has two USB ports. Bless.

    Promising review: "Where has this thing has been my whole life...?! I've struggled with plugging and unplugging my phone charger and lamp behind my bed for the longest time. My poor husband didn't even get an outlet — he had to charge his phone across the bedroom. This device has been super convenient because now he and I can simply plug our charging cables into the usb outlets along the top of the plug. This completely eliminates having to bother plugging the block up at all. Then, the outlets themselves twist to the sides instead of straight out like a normal outlet. I've got a whole side dedicated for what I need plugged in — a lamp and now a white noise machine. The other side twists to the right, so my husband can plug in whatever he needs. No more cables getting smooshed and bent...no more struggling to plug something in behind the bed... Well done and thanks for making such a smart product! Very convenient." —Amazonaholic

    17. A waffle iron with a built-in overflow channel to catch any oozing batter and make for a mess-free breakfast. What's better than that AND waffles?!

    Promising review: "I love waffles but there’s so much more you can use a waffle iron for. I’ve made paninis, quesadillas, grilled cheese, cake, brownies, fritters. The best is cinnamon rolls. You can cook them in half the time and the indentations from the iron keep the icing from falling onto the plate. I use mine multiple times a week." —aestainback

    Promising review: "I am so glad I got this. It makes for such great streamlined storage. Keeps things tidy and neat, and also helps me keep track of how many cups I have left to determine whether or not I need to add to my grocery list. It is very sturdy and I fit my machine on top. The top is very durable, hard plastic and does not buckle with the weight of the machine filled with water on top." —tunisianswife

    20. A teeny car vacuum you can plug straight into the cigarette lighter to do a quick clean on the spot — no need to hit up the car wash the next time you, ugh, spill your fries all over the floor.

    33. rapid food slicer because it's this, or individually cutting each cherry tomato, ultimately increasing the likelihood you get juice sent straight to the eyeball. This is just so much more efficient! Us type A's love efficiency.

    Promising review: "The Rapid Slicer is a fantastic addition to any cooks kitchen! It is an extremely high quality product that makes cutting so much faster. I really dislike making salad because of all the chopping. Now it is a breeze using the Rapid Slicer. I’m an economy Mom who will purchase meat in larger packages to save money. I use the Rapid Slicer to cut large chicken breasts, pork chops, etc. to make portion size cuts of meat. I don’t have a steady hand so my portion sizes used to be all over the place and now they are all even. I would recommend this product for all of the reasons." —Amazon reviewer
