    40 Things That'll Help You Overachieve In Every Aspect Of Your Life

    You know, helpful goods to make ya feel even *more* powerful in your quest to take on the week.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A faaaancy automatic spice grinder with interchangeable pods that easily click in and out, so you can swap in the salt, grind, and swap out for the pepper. With this, you'll be like Salt Bae 2.0 saltin' up everything and anything in your kitchen with complete ease.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    I just got one of these snazzy kitchen gadgets, and now every time I use it I think to myself, "How was I living life before this thing?!" It finely grinds salt down to that nice flaky texture, and then easy pops out the pod if I want to use pepper. I even got a different type of pod ideal for more oily spices (think mustard or flax seed). Now I am looking for reasons to use this thing... Salt on cake???

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (comes with grinder and two interchangeable pods).

    2. A weekly pill organizer featuring push-through silicone lids to efficiently organize the week's pills and vitamins. The base is magnetic, so when you're ready for Monday's set, just individually grab the container. So easy. So quick.

    The Grommet

    Sagely is a family-owned small business founded by husband-and-wife team Ellie Glazer and Ivor Miskulin, who spent three years designing the ideal, stress-free pill storage solution. The silicone lids are super secure, but also designed for gentle and easy opening and closing to account for users with dexterity issues.

    Promising review: "I take nine prescriptions every day between my morning and nights. Add supplements to that and it equals a lot of pills. Until I found these, I wasn’t able find any organizer large enough. After I got and used the first of this organizer, I immediately ordered a second. I only have to set my meds up twice a month and they stay fresh, handy, and neat. And when traveling, you can leave the rack at home and just toss the individual modules in your suitcase with no fear of them opening and dumping your meds all over your clothes. I highly recommend this system." —Bernice

    Get it from the Grommet for $34.95 or from Amazon for $34.99.

    3. A set of taco stand molds and do I even need to say more!?! Now you can turn your flour tortillas into the perfect meat-holding, lettuce-bowl vessel by either frying them into shape in a pan or even the air fryer. 

    Two tortillas in a metal stand cooking in a saucepan
    Reviewer image of hard tacos with meat and veggies in them

    It's designed to work on flour and corn tortillas, but works on egg roll wrappers too! 

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly in my ninja foodi air fryer! I had great tasting, healthier, crunchy corn tortilla taco shells in minutes! I posted the photos of my taco dinner on a Facebook group for air fryer owners and within minutes had several questions posted asking about this product. Well done!" —iHeartMyServiceDog

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.99

    4. A Mediterranean-esque peel-and-stick wallpaper that'll give you the upgrade you want for a fraction of the price. Once you do this yourself, you'll feel like a freakin' professional, except you did it completely solo on a free Saturday. Good job, you.

    reviewer image of tiles added to the back of an IKEA cabinet that was turned into a bar cart
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The paper of my dreams! Thick, easy to install, VERY forgiving pattern, and I was able to pull off and reposition several times with no loss of stickiness. Can’t say enough good things! Not even a bad smell like I was expecting after reading other reviews. One roll covered my entire set of stair risers with exactly the right amount and a very tiny strip leftover. The results are just what I was hoping for and more." —BwHow

    Get a roll (measures 198" x 20.5") from Amazon for $32.04+ (available in three colors).

    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.

    before/after of a linen closet with piles of messy sheets, and the linen organizers used to stack everything neatly
    Great Useful Stuff

    These are one of those, "why didn't I buy this sooner?" type of purchases. These have totally transformed my linen closet — so much so that I feel more powerful just opening my closet. They are *super* sturdy, which I appreciate because a lot of these types of organizers can feel flimsy. Not these! Even adding a few in your closet will save it from a toppled sheet takeover.

    Get one from Great Useful Stuff starting at $25 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    6. A six-port outlet designed to swivel (SWIVEL!) to the side, making it actually possible push your furniture closer to the wall. Pesky gap, we don't know her!!!

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $18.93.

    7. An adhesive hidden drawer that sneakily sticks under desks and shelves to provide a bit of extra storage. More space? More pens! (Which is also a sign to finally pick up that bullet journaling hobby you've been eyeing).

    Entirety Goods

    Get it from Entirety Goods on Etsy for $11.99.

    8. A long-lasting eyeshadow primer that'll not only make sure your perfectly blended smokey eye stays in its place from sunrise to sunset, but bring out the pigments to deliver bold color. You didn't master that smudged eyeliner look for it to literally smudge!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So good and so affordable! I compared swatches on my arm with the primer and without and it made a huge difference! The bottom two swatches are with primer, the top two are without. The eyeshadow was so much richer when used with the primer and I needed less eyeshadow to get a good color. More than worth the money. I'm officially converted to the primer life lol." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four shades).

    9. A MYX Fitness spin bike that'll help you get the best workout of your life without having to leave your house (ahem, a win in my book). Their workout programs even ~stretch~ beyond just spin, so you can change it up throughout the week. Squeezing in that workout just got infinitely easier.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, MYX Fitness

    Ever since life drastically changed a couple years ago, I have desperately been wanting a spin bike in my house. When the pandemic hit, my job moved remote and it's been that way ever since. Now so much of my day-to-day is lived at home, and that includes my workout routine. I wanted a piece of equipment that challenged me, but also provided other workout options. Well — ding, ding ding, folks — we have a winner! I loooooove this bike. The screen is bigger than I imagined, which really makes it feel like you're in a class, and the programs are c-h-a-l-l-e-n-g-i-n-g. The first class I did was only 20 minutes, and it was the best burn I've felt in a long time. A lot of my at-home classes are tough, but not like this, and I know that's truly something you get with a spin bike. But! When I am ready to do something else, I have so many other options. The bike even comes with weight set, which adds some challenge to their workout classes. Everything you get with MYX II Plus is worth its weight in gold, so if you've been considering a bike, MYX is a *great* option!

    Get the MYX II Plus bike from MYX Fitness for $1,600 (includes the bike, 21.5-inch screen, six-piece weight set, two mats, foam roller, and resistance band), or the MYX II for $1,300 (includes the bike and screen).

    MYX Fitness subscription to classes is $39/month.

    10. Classic Bean boots to get you through all types of weather so no matter what the clouds throw at you, you're prepared. Iconic and timeless, these babies will last you winter after winter, spring after spring.

    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I got these boots four years ago and, being from Texas, I didn't think I'd have much need for a winter boot, but boy was I wrong. I have a pair of rain boots that cost a pretty penny that have sat in the back of my closet since I got these. They are perfect for the rain, snow, or cold. The leather upper has started to wear beautifully and I can say that without a doubt, these will be my go-to boots for the rest of my life." —TheTexan

    Get them from L.L.Bean for $139 (available in women's sizes 5–11, three widths, and two colors).

    11. A vacuum hose attachment specifically made for your dryer vent. A little suction will suck out a TRULY surprising amount of lint from your dryer and hose — which is important, because that builds up overtime and increases risk of dryer fires.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Honestly, we are speechless! We are excellent about cleaning the lint trap after every load of clothes. We even clean the lint vent outside. But nothing could have prepared us for the amount of lint and gunk trapped in the vent tubing! How we have never had a fire, we have no idea. We vacuumed forever all the way up the vent tube, which we could have in no way done without this item. The suction power was unbelievable! We could not believe how bad the tubing was clogged. Just look at the picture. We removed about 3/4 of a kitchen garbage bag size of lint and gunk! It was amazing and embarrassing! It’s SO inexpensive, but it could literally save you from a house fire! Anyway, just buy it. Excellent value! You won’t be sorry!" —Brian Mattix/Elizabeth Bodnam

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in six colors).

    12. A wrinkle release spray for the mornings when you just don't have the time to break out the ironing board and iron, and give your shirts a nice press. Who has the time for that?!

    Promising review: "HOLY SMOKES. I wasn't expecting this product to work so well. Literally 10 seconds after spraying and gently stretching as the directions suggested, this was the difference! I let it hang for another 15 minutes with a subtle improvement, but the first few seconds after were mind-blowing." —Desiree

    Get it from Amazon for $13.94.

    13. A wireless library light so you can check "make house look like a luxurious hotel" off your to-do list.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This uses three AAA batteries and includes a remote that lets you set the light to different brightnesses and schedule a timer for15, 30, 60, or 120 minutes.

    Promising review: "For the price you can’t beat it. Super easy to install and lightweight. The gold had a slight orange tint to it, so be mindful of that. I actually just taped over the light and spray-painted ours with gold spray paint I had left over and then they were absolutely perfect." —Paris Seder

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. Blister prevention patches you apply on the areas in your shoes where you feel the most discomfort or *before* blisters strike. The squishy, thin patches reduce friction so your feet can feel happy as you run errands — or marathons, if you're into that sorta thing.

    reviewer image with patch applied to the side of sneaker
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were freakishly effective! Thin as paper. Easy to apply. Stayed in place, even when the shoes got wet. But, best of all, they worked! I had a very painful callus due to a misshaped toe that would hit my shoe and cause bleeding and blistering. It hurt all the time and never seemed to heal. The pain eased immediately upon using the patch. Then, the sores healed! Seriously, these look like they could never work, especially on real problems. But after multiple cushions, bandages, etc. failed, this worked perfectly! I have recommended this to others." —Calliopia

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $17.35.

    15. A wall organizer with rearrangeable pieces to keep to-do lists, calendars, notes, everything you need in one central place.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Add this to the list of things I didn't know I needed but now am in total love with. This wall organizer is it. I've been doing the whole WFH thing for over a year now, and it's been super important to me to create a space that I actually enjoy WFH in. Not only does this thing make me just feel fancy and put together (the organization!), it looks great and is beyond easy to keep up with. Each component (like the cork board, mirror, and boards) are each hung with hooks, making it simple to rearrange and take off to write on. The set comes with erasable markers that actually wipe off with water (no lingering marks), as well as screws to hang the unit. If I can hang this thing in five minutes, I swear you can!

    Get it from 1Thrive for $199.

    16. Bra strap extenders to give you room to breathe (like, literally breathe). Don't go out and try to find a new bra, just get these! *Ahhhhh.*

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These bra extenders are so easy to use and the best invention ever! I can’t believe I’m in my 50’s and just finding these! They have saved me and girls for sure! I don’t need to go up in size but I needed an extra eyelet worth or room! Very comfortable! I’d highly recommend! Thank you!" —Ally McCoy

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $6.76 (available in 19 set sizes).

    17. A sleek wood car freshener that's replaceable and easy to pop in and out of its holder so you can swap with a new scent when the time comes. Oh, so suave.

    Get it from Drift for $8 (available in seven scents).

    18. Silicone face mask "brushes" – it'll make application incredibly ~smooth~ (just like your radiant skin) and mess-free. It's actually just one soft, flexible piece of silicone — meaning you'll waste significantly less of your mask.

    different reviewer comparing regular brush with silicone brush. the silicone brush shows much more mask applied to skin.

    Promising review: "I'm an esthetician and have never used a brush like this but decided to try it out. I was a bit skeptical about how it would feel since it is one piece (silicone) instead of bristles. My mask went on perfect and smooth and I didn't have to waste any of the mask either. PLUS! You won't have to worry about a bunch of mask getting stuck in your bristles, definitely purchasing more for my new job!" —Tamar Yacoubian

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    19. And! Teeny lil' spatulas to get that veeeeeeery last drop of foundation out so when you run out last minute, you're still ~covered~.

    You can also use these for condiments and other beauty products! There are no limits for this glorious product.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    *And! Get a 10-pack of tiny jars ($6.99) for any leftover makeup you scraped out of the original bottle.

    20. A jewelry fastener that'll make wearing that dainty bracelet (with the impossibly tiny clasp) actually possible.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great little tool!! This is a quality little tool. It clips the end of the bracelet nicely so I can hook it by myself, exactly as its meant to. I highly recommend it." —Treens

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+.

    21. A hard-boiled egg timer so you can skip the guesswork of "hmmm, is eight minutes enough? I have no idea." Skip that and the Googling, and just use this lil' guy:

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Simply plop the timer and the color of the timer will change to indicate how boiled the eggs are, so you know when it's time to take 'em out.

    Promising review: "100% necessary? No...however, it does make one thing a little easier for me in the morning. Instead of watching the pot and waiting for the water to boil to start the timer you can just put the NobelEgg in the pot with your eggs, start the heat and just wait for your eggs to be done. Cant wait to give some as gifts!" —BaileyBoo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    22. A hamburger sandwich bowl to prevent your prized pickles and perfectly cooked meat from slipping out of the bottom. Consider that tasty burger contained and that white shirt saved from the inevitable burger juice drip.

    The Grommet

    These ingenious little things are microwave- and dishwasher-safe, heat resistant up to 450 degrees, and made with 100% food-grade silicone.

    You can even use them for more than just hamburgers. Just check out this review:

    Promising review: "When I opened the box, we saw hundreds of possibilities and we're especially thrilled that they stand alone. So far we've microwaved portions of leftover mac & cheese, casseroles, veggies, etc. They're perfect for breakfast sandwiches, and substituting triangular waffle sections for rolls. Tuna salad sandwiches are no longer messy. The grandkids had contests for snacking ideas. The flexible silicone holds finger foods like chicken tenders or fries without burning hands. They're filling them with dips for chips, pretzels, fries, apples, etc. Need more!" —Deborah

    Get a set of four from The Grommet for $24.95

    23. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover to spare yourself the nasty headache that sometimes (and rudely) accompanies your favorite pinot. Just drop, wait 20 seconds, and gulp away.

    BuzzFeed editor putting drops into glass of red wine
    The drop it bottle in editor's hand
    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend that always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." —Mackenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. 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.

    Reviewer image of coin organizer in cup holder holding different change
    amazon.com

    It can easily slip into your cup holder or console!

    Promising review: "I cannot say how much to this day I absolutely love this product. As far as products I would never give up in my life, this is 100% one of them. I couldn't live without this anymore and have recommended it to so many people. It eliminates loose change in your car, helps you start to save your change a little better, helps with drive thru's or places you could use exact change to save a buck (or $20), and has helped me in so many more situations. Over two years, four different cars, and more then a thousand dollars thru it it still functions exactly like day #1. The springs still work great despite how much change has been through it, being carried and dropped, moving between houses and dorms, and just general abuse like any object in your car. It's a great gift or something to help someone with a messy car. Absolutely recommend!" —NickDeMartin

    Get it from Amazon for $18.85.

    25. A car visor extender so you can freakin' see the road when ~golden hour~ makes it impossible. It blocks up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays, reduces glare, dims brightness — and your eyeballs are about to be so happy.

    The Grommet

    Glare Guard, the clever small business that makes this add-on visor, was started by maker Mark Smith. Mark used to work in the movie theater business, and now he and his son are helpin' drivers see better on the roads with their smart invention.

    Promising review: "This is the visor I have been searching for! I have a small car, and its visor did little to help me driving into the sun, both going to and coming from work. This is a game changer! It’s easy to install, and easy to flip into place." —Fran

    Get it from The Grommet for $29.95.

    26. A blow dryer holder that'll angle the dryer in the perfect position, meaning no more arm rest breaks...meaning less work on your part. Genius.

    Amazon

    The actual stand is universal, so it will hold dryers of all sizes and weights.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this hair dryer holder. It used to take me 15 to 20 minutes to dry my hair in the morning. Now it takes me eight because I don't have to put my arms down to rest them anymore. I placed it high on my bathroom wall and tilted the arm down because I wanted to straighten my wavy hair. My hair was sleek and straight because I brushed it while drying, which was so much easier to do without holding the dryer. I'll tell all my friends about this!" —Jon Wagner

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    27. A (beautiful!) stoneware strainer you can easily wash, clean, and drain berries with thanks to the built-in drip catcher and spout. That quick afternoon snack is just a strain away!

    UncommonGoods

    This beautiful piece is handcrafted by Brian Kunkelman in Pennsylvania.

    Promising review: "The Berry Buddy is perfect for washing and storing berries, grapes, etc. The bowl is very good quality and should not chip easily. We keep ours in the refrigerator to store grapes, but it looks very nice on the counter and can be proudly displayed for guests when serving grapes or other fruits." —Taylor

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $48.

    28. A dual-USB charging port that clips on to your couch so you will no longer need to hunch over, stretching every bit of your phone charger, just to see your phone.

    Promising review: "This is a simple, low-tech tool that keeps my tablet fired up and ready to go at my favorite spot on my couch. It stays put and is easily re-located. Solved a problem I didn't even know I had." —Elaine

    Get it from The Grommet for $14.95.

    29. A pre-filled grocery list to keep track of what you need throughout the week so when you hit up the store in a rush, you're not aimlessly wandering grocery store aisles with no game plan. That = bad. That = too much brain power.

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful grocery list. It has multiple sections pre-written and it even has some blanks in each section so that you can add any items that aren't already on the list. You can even put the list on the fridge because there are magnets on the back. Very handy. :)" —Lydia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    30. high-ponytail running cap with UPF 50 and a design that let's you wear a high *or* low pony. It's genius, and that makes sense, because you are a genius.

    Vimhue is an Arizona-based, woman-owned small business that specializes in uniquely engineered running hats. 

    Promising review: "Love this hat so much! I already ordered another one in a different color for myself and one for a friend! I live in Texas near the gulf and it’s summer — really humid and really hot. I walk three to four miles outside most days and I’d been wishing for a hat that allowed for a high ponytail so I could keep my hair off my neck to not get as hot/sweaty. Decided to Google it and found this and was thrilled! The X straps are easy to adjust and it fits great and is breathable. And it’s super cute!" —mlp06h

    Get it from Vimhue on Etsy for $29 or from Vimhue's site for $29 (available in 17 colors). 

    31. A super affordable curling wand to help you master beachy waves, no problem. It features a ceramic barrel, which can help prevent heat damage and frizz — and this may be the best $25 you will ever spend!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have super straight, Asian hair. For all my life, I've tried to add some curls or waves. Tons of products and hairspray and it still fell out after 30 minutes. This wand is awesome! I don't have to put anything in my hair and the curl will just loosen a little and look like such a natural curl. I'm assuming it's the high heat and how the wand retains the heat so well. It's very quick to heat up and where the cord attaches to the wand, it swivels so the cord doesn't get wrapped or twisted. Super awesome! Totally worth a try!" —Bernadette Pisco

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two sizes).

    32. Battery-operated, motion sensing night lights you can install anywhere in the house, because you don't turn on the lights. The lights turn on for YOU.

    Amazon

    These little lights are AA battery-operated (not included, but you can grab some here), weatherproof feature, a 30-second auto shutoff, activate from 15 feet away, and can be stuck anywhere (just grab some Command strips!).

    Promising review: "We have a short set of steps from the house into the attached garage that have always been dark and a little hard to see clearly in certain situations. These lights have been a perfect solution. They activate quite well and at a good distance, and put out a really nice amount of light. They also seem well made. I mounted one with the adhesive strip, and one with the screws (both included) and they are equally secure. They couldn't be easier to install and use right away. My whole family appreciates them." —foradrive

    33. A dishwasher magnet so you *always* know whether or not the plate you're eating off is indeed clean.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    34. A 15-pack (that's a lot!!!) of meal prep containers so you can prep a work week's worth of food. When you feel that lunch time hunger hit, you can just grab your pre-made meal. Ahh, that's some 10/10 preparation right there.

    These are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe! And they have 10,700+ positive reviews and a 4-star rating.

    Promising review: "These are great! Easy to use, and there's a little snappy sound so you know the lid's on, and they actually hold quite a lot of food. They're definitely helping me not eat lunch out so much at work. They're a bit too large for most lunch bags, but I just put it flat in the bottom of a grocery bag and it's good to go." —Meghan D.

    35. A jar of internet-beloved The Pink Stuff that'll tackle all the messes in your house and then some.

    Promising review: "Honestly I was very skeptical when I first purchased. Everyone on social media was talking about how amazing this product was for cleaning around the house and I just thought they were all jumping on some kind of bandwagon. Of course I caved and had to try it for myself. Needless to say I’m very impressed! It removed stubborn mold and grime from my shower tile grout with use of a hard-bristle toothbrush. It removed hard water stains from my sinks and faucets. I noticed it really does remove mineral buildup, but it takes a lot of elbow grease and repetitive applications before you start seeing progress. The texture feels similar to when you mix honey with sugar to make a lip scrub, except it’s super-fine grit and more pasty like putty or clay. It works amazing so far! No overpowering smell (barely any smell at all), easy to use, and a little product goes a long way. I haven’t tried it on rust yet so we’ll see how that goes. Over all very pleased and impressed so far. Highly recommend!" —Marissa

    Promising review: "My expectations were exceeded with this item. I added some custom chores and you went above and beyond to add not only the chore but a picture to coordinate that was exactly what we meant. These are amazing, as sticker charts get old and you have to keep recreating. I will definitely order again as the kids get older and chores change!!!" —dberes71

    37. A 3D mouth bracket that clips to the inside of your face mask so you can stop inhaling a wad of fabric every time you take a breath. And your lipstick? Consider it saved.

    Promising review: "These make it so much easier to have a conversation since your mask isn't right on your mouth and you don't sound all muffled. Other benefit I don't have to speak as loudly. I'm not so sure about being cooler with this because it always feels hot when I have my mask on. There are some clips on both ends of these but I'm not sure how they are used. I find they stay in place if my mask is nice and snug, which it should be. Very satisfied with this product." —Duarte Lady

    38. *Plus* a popular streak-free anti-fog spray that applies to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask. Amazing, incredible, brilliant...

    A heads-up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 Fog Gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Promising review: "The coolest multitool I’ve seen yet. Received as a gift and have now given this to MANY friends and family, and they are now giving it as gifts. I find I use this daily for small household chores but also on my weekend warrior trips for camping, drinks, etc. DO NOT buy the knockoffs, quality and functionality differ GREATLY." —Kerri

    40. A nail polish ring holder that slips onto your fingers and grips the polish bottle. Spare your comforter from Bubble Bath and get this ~handy~ thing.

    Promising review: "Cards on the table — I felt ridiculous bothering to purchase a Nail Polish Ring Holder. But this has so improved my self-manicuring skills, it's been a life changer, and probably saved me a lot of money on manicures. If you have self-polishing struggles, if you've ever ruined your duvet by spilling a bright-yellow nail polish bottle (not that this is from personal experience or anything) — this is a must." —Franimal
