    2. An Under Armour sports bra that'll give you all the support you need. It has thick, adjustable crossback straps that won't slip or slide off your shoulders, and the hook-and-eye closure at the back makes it easy to get off after a particularly sweaty workout.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "For reference, I normally wear a 34D, and so I opted for this bra in a Large. Instead of teeny-tiny spaghetti straps, this bra has supportive and comfortable ones that don't make me feel like I'm about to be sliced in half with dental floss. I was also pleasantly surprised by how high-rise the front was, given that at least once during my workout I need to bend over and I am not really keen on getting a face full of titty. And I worked out HARD. And my gals stayed. Put. No loose nipples. No underboob. No sliding straps." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Under Armour for $70+. Available in sizes XS-XL and in two colours.

    3. A pack of screen repair tape that'll cover up the holes in your screened windows, so you won't have to replace them when they start looking worse for wear. Reviewers say it's sticky enough that you won't have to reapply the tape. Plus, it has the same grid pattern as the screen, making it almost impossible to tell that it's a patch job.

    4. A bottle of hair detangler that’ll make it WAY easier to comb through your hair. It's packed with hydrating ingredients like argan oil, shea butter, jojoba, and quinoa proteins that'll add shine and prevent frizz. Plus, it'll leave behind a heavenly scent of sweet orange and vanilla.

    It's free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances or dyes, and formaldehyde, making it safe to use on children, too.

    "To put it bluntly, my hair is an absolute wreck. It has been bleached, dyed, straightened, and curled waaaay to much, and, honestly, it's mad at me. It was literally a nightmare to comb through after every shower (picture one of those tumbleweeds in a vintage Western movie) until I purchased this detangler. Now combing through my fine, knotty locks is a breeze. It's packed with hydrating argan oil, so I don't even have to add any extra serums to it after, which is a nice treat for my wallet. The cherry on top is that it actually smells like creamsicles, so you get a healthy dose of nostalgia, too." —Alice Prendergast

    5. A pack of food huggers that'll create a tight seal around your fruits and vegetables to make them last longer. They're reusable, waterproof, and come in different sizes to accommodate a variety of produce.

    7. A handy Popsocket phone grip for anyone who always has their device in their hand. It'll prevent you from dropping your device and make it easier to hold your phone, tablet, or Kindle for a long period of time. Plus, the acetate pattern will add a little sparkle to your case.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "I read before going to sleep every night using my much-beloved Kindle Paperwhite. The problem is, sometimes I lie on my back and....drop my Kindle on my face. Frankly this happens when I'm falling asleep, but also when I'm just reclining and reading on the cough. So after I got a PopGrip for my phone, I thought...why don't I stick one on my KINDLE?! Long story short, it was a great idea, 10/10 recommend. I haven't dropped it on my face SINCE. Also, as a lefty, I find holding my Kindle with one hand and being able to turn the pages very annoying. My right hand is weaker and gets tired, but my left hand can't turn the pages on the right side. The PopGrip makes gripping with my right hand and turning the pages way easier. Pop one of these pretty bbs on your favorite device — it'll make things just a little bit easier." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    8. A glasses holder that'll keep you from dropping and losing your specs when you're not wearing them. It has a magnetic backplate, so you can attach it on anything you're wearing. You can also use it to hang your ID badge, headphones, and other small items if you don't have a pocket.

    9. An all-purpose cleaner that'll make any surface stain a thing of the past. You can use it indoors and outdoors to remove everything from baked-on food to rust and hard water stains. It's a powder, so all you have to do is sprinkle some on a wet surface and scrub away the grime.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "When I moved into my apartment, I was shocked at how FILTHY every inch of it was. I'm not kidding — I don't think it had been cleaned since it was built in the 1890s. My tub didn't have just a light layer of grime — it had awful stains from sitting water. I immediately started scrubbing with a brush and the grossness started to disappear. And guys, my arms hardly got a workout in and the tub grime was gone in five minutes. These are actual pictures from my actual bathtub! Yes, I am slightly mortified/embarrassed, but that feeling is completely outweighed by the true joy of experiencing these results. I can wholeheartedly say that I am no longer scared to take a shower in my own home!" —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $18.42+. Also available in packs of two and four.

    12. A bottle of quick-drying super glue that'll repair small or delicate items (like toys and ceramic figurines), without leaving behind a gross, goopy mess. Reviewers love that it works on just about any surface and say that the tip doesn't get clogged up easily.

    13. An ultra-soft facecloth that’ll remove all your makeup with water — just water! It works gently to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil from your face, so you won't have to scrub very hard or use multiple products to clean your face.

    @makeuperaser / Via instagram.com, Jennifer Tonti/BuzzFeed

    "It’s great for people with sensitive skin or easily irritated eyes. You can remove your eye makeup without getting any oils or gels in your peepers. All you have to do is put the Makeup Eraser through one laundry cycle and then… add water. Seriously. One, two, three swipes across your mug and the job is done! This is one of those purchases that, while more expensive today, will save you lots of cash down the road. No more cotton pads, no more last-minute CVS runs, no more makeup wipes that dry out a week after you buy them!" —Jennifer Tonti

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.96+. Also available in pink and coral.

    14. A set of oven liners that'll save you from having to clean your stove all the time. Just place one on your bottom rack and it’ll catch all the oil, grease, and food that spills over. You can also cut them to use in your toaster oven or microwave.

    15. A genius Tile Mate that uses Bluetooth technology to keep tabs on your devices. You can attach one to your wallet, camera, keys — really, anything you don’t want to lose — and use the free Tile phone app to track them.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    And if you lose your phone, just double-click on the Tile Mate to make it ring, even if it's on silent. They're also available as stickers, or in a slim, credit card shape.

    "I am a forgetful person who loses all of my stuff all the freaking time, especially my wallet. That's where this little device comes in handy. I just slide the Tile Slim into one of the credit card slots in my wallet and can now track where it is with the help of the free Tile app. If I can see that it's in my home on the map, but can't find it, I just ring the device and it sets off a symphony of noises that help me hunt it down." —Alice Prendergast

    18. A roll of reusable double-sided tape that'll come in handy for any DIY project you're planning to do. You can use it to mount picture frames, tape carpets or rugs to the floor, or put it under your furniture to keep it from moving around.

    Asami Togi / BuzzFeed

    It won't ruin your walls when you're ready to remove it, and if you run it under water, you can reuse it somewhere else.

    "The tape is so strong and durable, it'll pretty much stick to ANYTHING. Just how good is it? Well, I cut off a little bit of tape, and I pasted it on the uneven wallpaper in my apartment. And it stayed there! I placed a picture frame against it and pressed down firmly. The frame didn't even budge if I poked at it. Even better? I could easily remove the tape from my walls, and the wallpaper wasn't damaged at all. Even more amazing? Just rinse the used tape under some water and you can use it again!" —Asami Togi

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Multifunctional Double Sided Nano Gel Grip Tape.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $10.99+. Available in two widths and three lengths.

    Reviewers love how easy it is to use this organizer and that it made laundry easier because they don't have to sort their socks.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.90+. Available in two colors.

    22. A multipurpose metal hook that'll keep you from touching shared surfaces like doors, elevator buttons, PIN pads, and ATMs. It's small enough to fit on your keyring or in your pocket, and it has a stylus tip, so you can even use it on devices with touchscreen.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "Each little detail is thoughtfully designed, from the large finger loop to the slightly curved tip — even the material itself is designed to keep your grabbers clean and free of microbes and bacteria. I was also really surprised by how ergonomic it is! I was able to open even the heaviest doors with relative ease, and thanks to the touchscreen tips, I could flip between paying for groceries and answering texts in seconds. What about push doors, you may ask? NOT AN ISSUE! I just attached the silicone tips to the end and used them to gently prod doors open — no slip, no scratches. Push, pull, tap, grab — this lil' guy does it all, and keeps your hands germ free in the process." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99. Available in two colours and packs of three.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $10.95. Also available with rotating handle.

    24. A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that'll actually remove all the stains you've been trying to get rid of for months. All it takes is a bit of water and a couple swipes to clean permanent marker, crayon stains, and scuff marks from all the surfaces in your home.

    25. A set of invisible hair ties with a coiled design that'll keep your ponytail in place without snagging or pulling on your hair. Plus, they won’t snap while you try to tie your hair up like regular hair ties do.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to hair ties, I'm a pretty picky person. I hate the classic ties that dig into your wrists and I wouldn't be caught dead with a regular o'l elastic in my ponytail. However, my hair is super fine, meaning it slips out of almost anything I put in it, so just any old alternative won't do. Insert: Kitsch hair ties. These coiled ties wrap around my tresses and actually stay put until I'm ready to let down my locks (you know, like Rapunzel). Also, they don't leave indents in my hair, which is a blessing since my hair is very prone to getting bent out of shape." —Alice Prendergast

    Get a set of eight from Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    26. A small, but mighty power bank charger, so you can charge your tech on the go. The sleek and compact design makes it easy to travel with and it has two USB ports, so you can charge a couple devices at once.

    28. A 2-in-1 hair dryer and volumizer that'll help you achieve that effortless, bouncy blowout that Cindy Crawford and Cher Horowitz perfected in the '90s. You can easily streamline your hairstyling process with this powerful, one-step hair tool.

    29. A pack of rubber grips, so you can open any stubborn jar with a twist of the wrist. They come in three different shapes and sizes that'll fit any jar or bottle you want to open. Reviewers who suffer from joint pain and arthritis say they're great for people with mobility issues, too.

    30. And finally, a pair of tiny beauty spatulas that'll help you get every last drop of your beauty products out of their bottles, so you won't have to replace them right away. The flexible silicone head and long, narrow handle can fit into your favourite makeup and skincare bottles. And when the containers are cleaned out, they're in the perfect condition to be recycled.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!
