    31 Products From Target That'll Turn Annoying Tasks Into Enjoyable Ones

    Helping you breeze through your to-do list.

    1. A Roomba robot vacuum that's the next best thing to having a professional clean your floors. You can schedule it to suck up dirt and dust from carpets or hardwood floors. It can even get those hard-to-reach places — all you have to do is sit back on the couch and let it do the work.

    2. A box of Magic Erasers to make any dirty surfaces look as good as new without the frustration of scrubbing and using bleach that usually makes you want to give up before you even start.

    3. A drain protector that will make cleaning your drain so much easier. Plus, it catches your hair before it has a chance to clog your drain, preventing you from standing in ankle-deep water every time you shower.

    4. An at-home dry cleaning starter kit because going to the dry cleaner's is a pain (not to mention expensive) and this handy kit will allow you to remove stains, odors, and even wrinkles on your own time, in your own home, and at a fraction of the price.

    5. A Google Nest learning thermostat so you can finally end the struggle of constantly getting up to adjust the temperature in your home. You can program it straight from your phone, and it learns the temperatures you like, will auto-schedule itself, and adjust for when you're home or away to save energy.

    6. A pair of smart plugs that will turn any of your "dumb" appliances into ones you can control via an app or voice control. No more having to get out of bed or running back home to check if you turned off that light.

    8. A programmable electric kettle that heats up water faster than a stove top kettle, so spend less time waiting for hot water. Plus, it has six preset temperatures for teas and coffee to help you optimize the taste of your favorite hot beverages.

    10. A rapid egg cooker to help you make the best eggs, because even though in theory, boiling eggs is simple, in practice, you're always left with overcooked or undercooked yolks and shells that refuse to come off. This cooker takes the guesswork out of making hard- or soft-boiled eggs.

    11. An Instant Pot that will turn everyday meals into such an effortless affair, you'll actually ~enjoy~ cooking. And by cooking, I mean throwing a bunch of ingredients inside the pot and hitting the sauté or slow cook button.
