    31 Things From Walmart That May Be Inexpensive, But Will Never Stop Being Useful

    Practical for both your wallet and your life.

    1. A set of under-bed storage bags that will keep blankets or bulky sweaters stashed in a convenient but out-of-the-way space.

    2. A sturdy cast-iron skillet to help you increase your cooking repertoire, as it can go from the stove top to the oven and back again. And, with the proper care, it can last decades, which is more than can be said for most of your possessions.

    3. A pair of extra long silicone oven mitts so you can grab hot trays of freshly baked cookies or other treats out of the oven the second they're ready, without worrying about accidentally burning your hands or forearms.

    4. A set of Wi-Fi-enabled smart plugs that will turn your ordinary appliances into smart ones. Plug them into an outlet, connect to an app, and you'll be able to control your lights, fans, coffeemaker, and more straight from your phone.

    5. A can of Bar Keepers Friend cleanser – it'll become *your* friend regardless if you clean your house every week or if you do it... much less frequently. The powder is safe to use on almost any surface, and it helps removes rust, oxidation, hard water stains, soap scum, mildew, and grease.

    6. A back and neck massager with an ergonomic design to help you work out any tight muscles or knots in your body, even in those hard-to-reach places you can't get to without practically dislocating a shoulder.

    7. A TubShroom that acts like a strainer inside your bathtub to trap hair before it clogs up your drains. Because especially if you have long hair, you've likely bought many, many bottles of drain cleaner.

    8. A set of resistance bands to help instantly level up any home workout. They come in different resistance levels to give options depending on your fitness level and exercises, and they take up almost no storage space.

    9. A pack of microfiber cloths that can be used for cleaning, wiping up messes, dusting, drying, polishing, and more. The pack comes with 12 towels in different colors so you can color-code all your household chores.

    10. A 5-foot-long lightning charger cable so you can charge and use your devices at the same time without needing to sit right next to the wall outlet. It has a durable braided cord and a strap to keep it organized when not in use.

    11. A nonskid turntable to hold condiments, spices, and more. It will let you easily see and access all your go-to kitchen items so you're not digging around the back of your cabinets trying to find some herbs you forgot you owned but are required for the recipe you decided to try for dinner.

    12. An expandable shower caddy so that instead of knocking and tripping over the mess of bottles lining your shower floor or bathtub rim, all your essentials are nicely organized right where you need them.

    24. A citrus squeezer because trying to juice fruits with your bare hands is just not practical. Now you can add fresh lemon, lime, or orange juice to drinks, marinades, or more, any time you want.

    27. A pack of nonslip velvet hangers that are thin but sturdy (they can hold up to 11 lbs each), and are grippy enough to prevent your garments from sliding off. The pack comes with 100 (!) hangers, giving you no more excuses for draping your clothes on random furniture.

    28. A set of four mason jar glasses – they come with lids and straws, because drinking out of mason jars — even just water — makes everything more fun. They're also sturdy and dishwasher-safe.

    29. A Rachael Ray 6-Piece Nonstick Tools Set so you at least have the basic tools an adult kitchen should have, and as a bonus, they all match. The set includes a whisk, a ladle, two slotted spatulas, a spoon, and a slotted spoon.

    30. A 116-piece tool kit that has everything needed to help you be handier at home, whether you're hanging up wall decor or assembling furniture. It includes a hammer, pliers, a screwdriver with multiple bits, a socket wrench, hex key wrenches, and more.

    31. And a lap desk because you probably spend more time with your laptop on your couch or bed than you should, so you might as well make it more comfortable. This lap desk fits most 15" laptops and also has a slot to hold your phone and a built-in mouse pad.
