Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A hair styling treatment that'll condition, strengthen, add volume, and polish your locks right after you hop out of the shower, ultimately cutting out a bunch of other products that can be time consuming. Simply apply on damp hair, style, and go!

    2. A memory foam seat cushion to save your butt and back from the wrath of office chairs, road trips, and anywhere you do a lot of sitting.

    3. A pair of versatile go-to leggings you can rock with your favorite fall accessories, around town running errands, or on the couch. What I am trying to say here is, why wear jeans ever again?

    4. A squatty potty that'll adjust your position and relax the right muscles so you can pass poo comfortably. Life gets busy, you do(do) not need to deal with bloating and constipation on top of it.

    5. A portable blender bottle so you can blend fruits and veggies on the go. Smoothies? At work? Breakfast every day? Yes, you can have it all.

    6. A roll-up drying rack because countertop and sink space is IMPORTANT real estate that must be utilized efficiently. Amen.

    7. A powerful steamer that basically brings the fancy spa straight to your home. Now you can lure those pesky blackheads out without having to pay for an expensive facial.

    8. A fuzzy fleece jacket that'll upgrade the leggings you've been wearing to your most successful OOTD post yet.

    9. An adjustable wood organizer for transforming your cluttered desk into a trendy space you *won't* mind working at all day.

    10. Water resistant, wireless ear buds to get you through long commutes, workouts, and the noisy neighbor who likes to host a wrestling match in their apartment every night.

    11. A teensy vacuum...made for your PORES. Seriously, all that ~poor~ dirt, grease, and dead skin doesn't stand a chance. Say it with me: It's time to move on out, you pesky blackheads!

    12. A six-piece bin set — aka your foolproof way to keep track of everything in your more moldy leftovers hiding in the back, stinking up your kitchen.

    13. A small windproof umbrella because you WILL NOT get stuck in a rainstorm with a broken umbrella again. Not today, not tomorrow!

    14. 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.

    15. A hard wax so you can skip all those pricey trips to the salon and get a wax right in the comfort of your own home.

    16. A pollen-, dust mite-, mold-, and pet dander-busting detergent that just might make all the difference if your regular allergy medicine just can't do the job on its own.

    17. A set of WILDLY popular microfiber sheets (seriously, they have over 51,000 positive reviews!) you'll be thinking about crawling back into the second you leave them.

    18. An at-home powder dip kit for achieving that expensive powder mani look *without* having to see a nail tech. The finished product can last three weeks without chipping, and that is heaven to my ears (and eyes).

    19. And! A powerful nail strengthener formulated with hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium to prevent breakage and make your nails harder and longer. It can be used by itself as a stand-alone treatment or as a base coat alternative.

    20. A multi-functional chopper with interchangeable blades that makes chopping tons of fruits and veggies easy peasy lemon squeezy so you can prep less and eat more.

    21. A compact hair roller that'll remove ALL the pet hair embedded on your sheets, clothes, and upholstery — something anyone with a fur baby knows is no easy feat.

    22. A set of transparent, shatter-resistant, leak-proof, air-tight leftover and lunch containers so your leftover or meal prep game becomes and actual reality (and your soup or salad dressing never ends up seeping anywhere it's unwelcome).

    23. A heated shiatsu-massage pillow because work was a nightmare, the car wouldn't start, you spilled your coffee, and you just need some dang relaxation and something to work out those knots. This'll help.

    24. A wireless phone charger for keeping your phone juiced up without the hassle of cords. After all, you are the life of the group chat so it's CRUCIAL that your phone be charged at all times.

    25. A faaaaancy smart notebook that'll capture your best doodles, lists, and thoughts where you can then upload them all to your computer. Now it's easier than ever to spam your family chat with your amazing talent.

    26. Heat-resistant cooking and grilling gloves for all of your ultimate dinners. May you now run back and forth from the stove to the grill in complete ease.

    27. A two-spray shower head that'll give you the feel of greater water pressure *without* increasing your water usage.

    28. A spice set to elevate any meal you cook, whether it's the last-minute dinner after a long day or an elaborate feast for the dinner party you now have to throw after getting this.

    29. Faux-leather loafers so you can stylishly stay on trend (and on budget). Your fall outfits are not ready!

    30. And a wireless Bluetooth karaoke mic that is basically a portable party — it's compatible with any smartphone or tablet and can jam for 5 to 10 hours on a single charge.

    Me to everything on this list:
