    1. A rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a FIVE-FOOT cable to power up the whole family's devices on the go. No more fighting, kids!

    Amazon

    The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device you're plugging in, and charging it as fast as the device will allow.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in eight colors)

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things I think I have ever bought. I got this for a family vacation where there is always a fight over who gets to charge their phone. This gave everyone the chance to use it and having the part that reaches to the backseat was PRICELESS!!! My son could charge and play at the same time, which was lovely. I highly recommend this to parents with more than one child!!" —Leigh-Anne L.

    2. A set of non-slip mixing bowls with handles so you can beat together your world-famous brownie batter without 1. the bowl spinning uncontrollably 2. the bowl slipping off the counter and spilling ALL OVER THE FLOOR!

    Macy's

    It has a lid so you can pop it in the fridge for later (great when you're making cookie dough and need the dough slightly chilled before scooping to make it less sticky), and a pour spout so you can neatly fill sheet pans and muffin tins with ease.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $49.99 (originally $71.99)

    3. ~Mega thermal~ heat-retaining socks with a brushed lining and moisture-wicking fabric, because when your tootsies get that winter chill, it's hard to get them to *ever* warm up again.

    amazon.com

    They'll keep your feet warm (and dry) in up to -15°F.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four color sets).

    Promising review: "These socks have just changed my life. I am not even kidding. I suffer all of the time from feet that are painfully cold when the temperature outside is anything less than about 75 F. It is horrible. I wear double socks with slippers; still have cold feet. Always having them tucked under a few thick blankets while watching tv, etc., but still feeling the cold in my feet. Well, I saw the reviews and ordered these. I put them on this evening, put on my usual slippers, and shortly after I felt like I had an electric heater inside my socks. They feel so very warm and toasty. I have never had a sock that could do this. Even thick wool socks don’t do this. MY FEET ARE ACTUALLY WARM which is something that rarely ever happens. I am in LOVE with these socks. I could kiss whoever invented them." —Linda Marie Nutter

    4. A fan-favorite cold brew coffee maker so you don't have: 1. spend so much money at coffee shops 2. drink watered down hot coffee poured over ice or 3. get heartburn from acidic brews.

    BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (for the one-quart size) or $34.51 (for the two-quart size).

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less then a dollar you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead acid reflux sufferers, have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days worth of coffee for around $2 bucks worth of beans. Pretty amazing." —Robert Klaproth

    I have and looooooove this cold brew maker. Learn more in my full review!

    5. A neck pillow you can twist into several different positions so you can get actual rest while traveling — without your head bobbing up and down.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in seven colors and adult and children sizes).

    Promising review: "Have wanted a travel pillow forever! Took a chance on this. Oh my gosh it’s amazing! It forms to my neck and no matter which way I turn my head, I can fall asleep instantly. This is so much better than standard travel pillows. One of my best Amazon purchases to date!" —Lauren Grubb

    This won best mid-priced travel pillow on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    6. A brown sugar–softening bear, because no one wants to heat up some oatmeal or prepare to bake cookies, only to discover the brown sugar is now rock-hard.

    amazon.com

    I timed my morning routine to the nanosecond, and I don't have time to chip away sugar with a pick!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.11 (also available in gingerbread person, maple leaf, and sugar cookie shapes).

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    7. No-wedgie undies for anyone who wants a no-show pair that'll look ~seamless~ under leggings, but is not about that thong life.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $15.39+ (available in sizes S–L and four color sets).

    Promising review: "I honestly love these. I was so skeptical about buying underwear on Amazon. I could not imagine buying underwear without feeling it first. However, these were a huge success. First of all, they fit extremely nicely. The bum area has great coverage so you don't end up accidentally wearing skimpier underwear than you planned. I absolutely love the feel. They are so soft and comfortable. These are described as seamless and this is very accurate. I appreciate a good pair of leggings and I can wear these underwear with any pant (from leggings to skirts, etc). The colors are very nice. The darker colors look like they were a more expensive purchase. The price is not outstanding, but the convenience of having these show up at your doorstep is almost unbeatable. Summary: Great colors, great quality, true to size, seamless and so comfortable!" —Emily

    8. A Squatty Potty to make pooping easier so constipation is no longer your #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.

    Amazon

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "Oh Squatty Potty,

    You fill me with endless joy,

    Yet leave me empty." —Wm. Jonathan Bradshaw

    If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($69.99) and a Bamboo version ($67.57).

    9. A set of charcoal-infused bath towels, because putting your face into your towel to dry it and getting a whiff of that mildew stank is NO FUN.

    Macy's

    The cotton and charcoal-infused polyester blend is both antibacterial *and* odor-resistant, so that "I just washed these yesterday, how are they already gross?" feeling is a thing of the past.

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $13+ each (depending on size; available in wash towels, hand towels, and bath towels and four colors).

    10. Grooming gloves designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting — so your pet won't fidget or get uncomfortable, and your sofa (and clothes!) won't be constantly covered in hair.

    amazon.com

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL and two colors).

    Promising review: "I love these gloves. I have three German shepherds that shed constantly and they do not sit still very well, but with these gloves they feel as if they are being petted and don't mind at all. These gloves easily pick up the loose hair and leave my dogs sleek and shiny. Also it is very easy to just shake the hair off the gloves. You don't have to dig the hair out of the grooves like you do with some brushes. I am so happy to have found these." —Margie

    11. A pack of pimple patches to stop acne IN ITS TRACKS. They protect your skin, preventing further damage or reinfection, while absorbing oil and pus to shrink the zit and reduce redness, helping it heal *so* much faster.

    amazon.com

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $4.96.

    Promising review: "OMG. You. guys. Meet my new Holy Grail product for handling breakouts. If you have cystic acne (or any acne) that takes forever to go away, and it's itchy and gross while your spot treatment works at drying it up (and eats away at your skin), these. are. for. you. These pimple patches literally suck the gunk right out of your monstrosity of a zit. It's painless (soothing to the spot, in fact) and protects your face from when you make it worse by accidentally brushing up against it while a) washing your face, b) scratching a spot-treatment-induced itch, or c) literally anything else. These take care of the problem while letting you get on with life. There's no scarring afterwards, they can be worn under makeup, and don't come off when you're asleep. I also think these have prevented my current breakout from spreading and taking over my face (just when I'd gotten things under control, too). Worth every penny. I'll take a thousand, please." —ElWha

    12. Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers you can pop into your sweatiest, stinkiest beer-soaked flats or old gym shoes — the smell will be G O N E.

    amazon.com

    They don't mask odors; they also absorb moisture to prevent mold, mildew and bacteria from forming. You can reuse the bags for up to two years — just pop 'em in the sun for an hour every so often to freshen up.

    Get one pair from Amazon for $9.95 (also available for packs of two and three pairs for a discount).

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    13. An underwire bra designed specifically (and ingeniously) for big boobs. It has stay-in-place adjustable straps, smooth elastic that'll stay comfy (without showing under tees), super-soft fabric, and structure that'll actually *support* you.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49 (available in sizes 34B-44H and in eight colors).

    Promising review: "I am in love with this bra! It looks just like the picture — beautiful! My cups don't 'runneth over' if u know what I mean, and I don't bulge out the sides. No more ripping bra off when I get home! I have had it on for six hours today and I forgot I had it on! I have been searching for a bra like this my whole life, even spending up to $100 at Nordstrom and Lane Bryant, and even after getting measured by the 'expert,' my bra still sat in my drawer after one wear. I am going to get a different color every payday! I actually got a little teary eyed, that is how frustrated I had been with bras!" —Sjh

    14. A Rubbermaid Freshworks container to keep produce fresher for wayyyyy longer.

    BuzzFeed

    The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keeps moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly-picked days and days and days... and days later.

    Get a four-cup rectangular container from Amazon for $9.99 or a larger 11-cup square container for $11.79.

    Promising review: "Great item! Day six with a salad in one, fresh green beans in one and mushrooms in the small one — they are ALL still fresh! Mushrooms, especially, get slimy after just a few days. No slime in the Freshworks containers!" —A. Bock

    Check out our full review of these game-changing containers!

    15. A garlic prepping set with a silicone tube (that'll peel the garlic) and a press (that'll mince it) so you can flavor your food without getting stinky fingers.

    Amazon

    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Than simply push the press down, and your perfeclty minced pieces are ready to use!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Mama Miller

    16. A John Frieda hot air brush so you can perfect a sleek *and* voluminous blowout in no time ~flat~ — without juggling a round brush in one hand and a heavy blow drier in the other.

    BuzzFeed

    Get the 1.5-inch brush from Amazon for $39.99 (also available in a one-inch brush).

    Promising review: "OMG this is the BEST HAIR TOOL for haircut with layers!! When I tried to style it at home with a regular blow dryer and round brush I couldn't do it like the my hairstylist — it came out flat and straight. Then I came across this AMAZING brush. I am SOOOOO GLAD I tried it. This product is truly everything!!! It is LIGHTWEIGHT, which makes it very easy to hold, the heat temperature on high is perfect (first i thought it wasn't hot enough, but it's perfect to style hair without causing heat damage), the bristles are soft, hair slides through, does not pull on hair, no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (NO NEED TO USE HOT ROLLERS). This hot air brush is so great that I had to purchase one for mom as soon as I was done using it. Cannot say enough good things!" —FashionChic

    To say I love this brush would be an understatement. Check out my full review of the John Frieda hot air brush for all the ~hairy details~.

    17. A round blindspot mirror that'll make merging, changing lanes, and even parallel parking a breeze.

    amazon.com

    Just clean your side mirror with alcohol (to remove outdoor grime or residue), and attach this round mirror — the 3m adhesive will hold strong. And they attach on a pivoting base, so you can adjust them for the perfect view.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.97 (also available in rectangular and egg shapes).

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They're helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too." —Mariam Abass

    18. Moisture- and temperature-regulating pillows with a ~Hygro cotton~ shell so you don't wake up in the middle of the night, needing to flip over to the cool side.

    Macy's

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $34.99+ each (originally $50+; available in standard and king sizes).

    19. A satin pillowcase to help maintain hair health even as you sleep, reducing pesky frizz and breakage when compared with regular cotton or other fiber pillowcases — that means longer-lasting blowouts and less damage in the long run.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four sizes and 24 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I decided to purchase this pillow case after noticing hair breakage from one too many bleach jobs. I really wasn’t expecting a miracle, but this product has tremendously reduced the breakage! I love the zipper closure. It’s a sturdy zipper and covered with satin. Prevents my pillow from slipping out. It’s easy to toss in the washer and has withstood many washes! I now swear by satin pillow cases and will be ordering more from this brand!" —Nikki D.

    20. A pet-feeding reminder chart so you never have to ask your significant other whether they fed Rufus, only for them to answer "uhhhhhh......."

    amazon.com

    Just slide the toggle over whenever the task is complete, and you can rest easy, knowing your precious pup or favorite feline is neither hungry nor overfed. It comes with magnet and sticker mounting options, so you can affix it right to your fridge *or* directly to the food container.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "Bought this as my roommate and I kept getting tricked by our cat to double feed her. She can be very deceptive (look how adorable she is)! This product has prevented me from double feeding her twice in the first week of use! Highly recommend. We leave our feeding reminder right on top of her hinged feeding container. 5/5 stars!" —Travis H.

    21. Sweat-resistant silicone grips that'll keep your earbuds or airpods in your ears during even the most intense workouts.

    amazon.com

    Get two pairs (one small and one large) from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I've always had a hard time keeping these crazy little earbuds in my ears, so when I head out to the gym, or anywhere that I want to listen to my playlists, I have to use my big earphones. With these, that is no longer a problem! I would recommend them to ANYONE who works out, runs, walks, or just has a general problem with earbuds." —Green Day Lover

    22. A waterproof, smudge-resistant eyeliner stamp with two sides: a triangular stamp on one end and a felt-tip eyeliner on the other to create the perfect winged liner look in no time flat, i.e., you'll never be late again!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

    Promising review: "I loved the product. I usually take 15 mins to do my eyeliner perfectly for my dance recitals which include cleaning and re-doing multiple times. But with this eyeliner, I took only five mins to do it in a single go. It lasted really long even in burning hot weather. It looked so beautiful even from a long distance. I loved the product. It's a must-have for all those who love eye makeup." —rasu

    23. Or a mega-pack of precision-tip swabs for correcting eyeliner, applying concealer right around your lipstick line, removing errant mascara marks, and more.

    amazon.com

    Get a pack of 600 pointed swabs from Amazon for $10.99.

    Promising review: "Perfect quality. Very firm, helps correct even the minutest slip on your lipstick or eyeliner. Finally something to correct, with great precision, the small mistakes on my L'Oreal Infallible lipstick, to get the perfect lip lines!!! You will use lots of them, so this is not a large quantity. Indispensable tool for makeup! Also, great for nail polish correction!" —Deborah B.

    24. A zip-top bag–filling stand to make putting away leftovers or storing meal-prepped recipes in the freezer so much easier. Just pour right in — no sagging or tipped over bags in sight.

    amazon.com

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.97.

    Promising review: "I used three of these to help me make freezer meals for after I have a baby. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have filled the freezer bags without these ingenious baggy holders. I was able to dump veggies, spices, meat, and cans of heavy beans and tomatoes into the bags, and they stood up the entire time without sliding or spilling. One of the bags I stuffed literally to the brim, as full as it could go, and the bag did not fall down. I would definitely recommend these." —Grace S.

    25. A Philips sunrise-mimicking light and alarm clock so you wake up gradually, because waking up in wintry darkness just isn't working out for anyone.

    Amazon

    It has 20 brightness settings that slowly increase over 30 minutes so you rise ~with the sun~, feeling energized and ready for the day. Once it's at full brightness, only *then* will the alarm sound go off. Plus, it'll do the same thing in revers to help you wind down at night!

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99.

    Promising review: "This has really made a big difference in how I wake up every morning. On these short winter days, I always have to wake up before sunrise, and that's...challenging. I found myself hitting the snooze button at least three times, leaving very little time for me to get ready and to work on time. Having the sunrise simulation wakes me up gradually and completely. I almost always wake up fully before the music starts and I have not needed the snooze function yet. All of the wake up sounds were pleasant. I especially like the birdsong with flute music, as it reminds me of being in a spa. I like the dusk option for going to sleep. I set it for 30-60 minutes and read until it's too dark and I drop off to sleep. An additional bonus is that since I'm no longer using my cellphone as my alarm clock, I practice better sleep hygiene and keep my cellphone out of the bedroom. It is a significant investment but it has been worth it." —MsEdinger

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review (#11 in the post) for a first-hand account on how it can make mornings easier.

    26. An outlet timer that'll automatically shut off after one, two, four, or eight hours, because we've all had that "Wait... did I shut off the curling iron/slow-cooker/lava lamp?" moment.

    amazon.com

    You can also set it to the "hold" setting if you don't want to use the timer at that moment. Besides curing your curling iron anxiety (which, extremely me) the Amazon reviewer below had the great idea to use it to charge their phone without leaving it plugged in for too long!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    Promising review: "I love this product. I use it only for my cell phone charger cable so it won't overcharge all night. I set it on for two hours and my phone and I wake up in the morning to a fully charged phone. I've heard its not good for a battery to be connected to a charger for long hours." —Scott

    27. A Tubshroom, a game-changing drain strainer to catch every single strand of shed hair and make clogged showers a thing of the past.

    BuzzFeed

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four and would frequently have to snake our shower drain, it appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths and this collects the hair. It does not seem to slow down the flow of water down the drain significantly. I'm very impressed having been using around a month. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's Tubshroom review for all the deets (and more ~hair raising~ pics).

    28. A Bialetti pasta pot with a strainer built *right into* the lid — and a twist & lock feature so you never lose a single noodle.

    amazon.com

    This has over 1,000 reviews, so it's Amazon Reviewer–approved.

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

    Promising review: "This is without a doubt the best pasta pot I have ever used. I am Italian, and have been cooking pasta now for over 50 years. Never have I used a pot that was so light, easy to use, incredibly easy to clean up, but most importantly, cooks my pasta perfectly. Yes, when I make thin pasta all I do is tip a little water out at first, then pull back to reset the pasta, and then I can drain it all without losing any pasta. I love this pot, I have been using it now for at least four years. I've recently decided to use it to make popcorn!!! This pot is the bomb, there's nothing I can cook in it that doesn't come out perfectly!!!" —Etyimine

    29. A spice *drawer* organizer to turn your messiest part of the kitchen into a clear, easy-to-read assortment of jars and labels. You'll never accidentally add cumin where you meant to add coriander again.

    Amazon

    Spice racks only *wish* they could. These drawer liners are made of a soft foam to keep your jars in the right position (label up!) so you can quickly grab what you need. And you can trim 'em to fit your drawers!

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!" —momonono

    30. An ice tray with a spill-proof silicone lid so you can store the tray sideways or at an angle — and walk from the sink to the freezer without sloshing all over the place.

    Amazon

    AND it'll keep your cubes from getting that funky freezer smell.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "Do you feel the need to research even the smallest purchases before you commit? Well then, this is the review for you, because I spent a solid hour researching ice cube trays upon moving into my new apartment. Amazon reviewers, you've done it again! I have owned this ice cube tray for approximately four months and I have loved every day we've had together. I've considered inviting people into my home and offering them a glass of water just so they can watch in awe as I peel back the silicone top and cool the crap out of their drink. The ice cubes taste like fresh ice and the name does not lie — these ice cubes DO NOT SPILL. I sometimes turn it upside down in my freezer just to spice things up." —Sara

    31. A fan-favorite setting spray that'll finally spell the end for having to re-do your full face of makeup (or waste money on those blotting sheets). Your face will stay perfect and shine-free all day and all of the night.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this for a while, but finally needed to write a review. This morning, I put on my makeup and some generous sprays of this setting spray. Then, I went into the 100+ degree heat and demonstrated a short workout at an outdoor event. Despite drinking as much water as I could handle, I overheated quickly and EMS had to come to my rescue. Between my boyfriend and EMS, there was a small crowd around me: literally pouring ice water on me; mopping my face and neck with cold towels; pressing ice packs on me. This continued for a while and I was sure that my makeup was gone, but this spray kept my face mostly intact! If this spray can keep my makeup on through an encounter with EMS and being essentially submerged in ice water, it can keep yours on through your (hopefully less eventful) day!" —Bugaboo

    32. A set of Shoe Slotz for any Carrie Bradshaw with way too many pairs of pumps to fit into an NYC-sized closet. Just put one shoe on the shelf, top with a ~Shoe Slot~, and stack the other shoe on top. You just DOUBLED your storage space.

    Amazon

    It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes — heels and flats!

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $25.95.

    Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    33. PreHeels, a friction-preventing spray you can spritz on your feet before wearing the most treacherous shoes to prevent blisters all night long.

    BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Learn more, and check out my full review in PreHeels Is The Easiest Way To Make Your Shoes Blister-Proof.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product and will by time and time again. Few disclaimers. This will only do so much to protect against brand new shoes. It will definitely help, but will not protect your foot from getting blisters if the shoe is tight or small from the get-go. That's just going to happen no matter what. It will alleviate the pain for uncomfortable shoes that you own and have already at least started to break in. It will also leave slight unnoticeable residue at the end of the day, once you take your shoes off. It just starts to flake off lightly and all you need to do is wash it off. I put this on with all of my even slightly uncomfortable shoes and I barely ever have any problems." —akf16

    34. A ~Satisfyer pro 2~ that'll really live up to its name if you're feeling sexually frustrated, helping you get off in no time flat thanks to a whopping 11 different pulsing and suction settings.

    Amazon

    And it's totally waterproof! You might say that it's ~cliterally amazing~.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    Promising review: "I was in the market for something new so I started reading reviews. There is a similar one to this that is much more expensive but the reviews were both great. I decided for this one and IT WAS NOT A MISTAKE. I was off within a minute I think. Very easy to use and to charge. It looks like a facial cleaning tool, so not obvious what it really is. And OMG. Throw away the vibrators that leave you numb THIS is the next best thing to sliced bread." —TL

    Promising review: "This brush is frigging magic. I would have never considered purchasing this if I had seen it in a store, the bristles are very 'flimsy' and I would have assumed it would do nothing to my super thick, curly, coarse (currently bleach-damaged) long hair that turns into a cavewoman wig by the end of one day. The great reviews persuaded me to give it a try. SO happy with the results! The brush is very gentle and I see very little hair on the brush even after going through the worst of rats' nests. it is simply amazing. this would be perfect for anyone, definitely a great brush for a parent brushing children's hair. I was so tired of brushing my hair I was actually considering chopping it off. So happy I tried this brush first!! If you are on the fence, order this sucker! It is a game changer!" —Jen Downy

    36. Cable-hugging critters to take a ~bite~ out of the annoyance of fraying cords. I ain't lion when I say I'm tired of having to hold my phone in one position to charge!

    Urban Outfitters

    Just clip 'em around any cable you have to reinforce it!

    Get the original Cable Bite from Urban Outfitters for $6 each (available in 15 animals) or a similar version from Amazon for $5.99 each (available in 21 animals).

    Promising review: "I bought a couple of these to reinforce a cord that has become weak due to normal wear and tear. I was hoping they were functional for a Galaxy phone (which I'm thrilled they are) but had no idea how extremely cute they would be. I've ended up buying SEVERAL more for stocking stuffers." —jwow76

    37. A silicone pot holder that'll also double as a handy-dandy splatter cover, so you can protect your hands from grabbing a burning hot cast iron handle AND keep your stove from needing to be cleaned every five dang minutes.

    Macy's

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $19.99 (originally $28.99).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.77.

    Promising review: "NEVER GETTING MY NAILS PROFESSIONALLY DONE AGAIN. I love having long nails. I do not like spending fifty bucks just to get them painted. I tried the gel polish, with gel top coat; I tried the gel system with the lamps; I tried every polish out there. My hands get washed hundreds of times daily. This stuff is unbelievable. It really works the way they say it does. I applied it about 1-2 minutes after finishing a second coat of color and within minutes it had bonded and set and my nails stay shiny and polished for over a week. That is not the full two weeks claimed, but I am unusually hard on my nails so over a week is AWESOME. I immediately ordered several more." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    40. Nesting food storage containers in a rainbow of colors to make matching the lid easier than ever (each container has a dot with the same color as the lid right on the bottom!) — and these take up, like, *no* room in your cabinets.

    Amazon

    You know that thing when you're prepping ingredients or packing away leftovers and you just CAN'T find the lid that fits?! No more. You can freeze, 'em, microwave 'em, and pop 'em in the top rack of your dishwasher, too!

    Get the set of six containers and lids from Amazon for $31.01 (also available in both smaller and larger sets).

    Promising review: "We have had these now for over a year. They are wonderful. They are BPA free, they store food well, they dishwash well, they freeze well, they microwave well, and they take up very little room. We no longer have lids without containers, we no longer have containers without lids. Ours seal really well, so I can't speak to other reviewers' issues about this. But we love ours and I'm actually here to buy a second set." —Tasman Truckee

    41. A flat colander that'll fit right into your sink for easy ingredient prep without scraps falling into your drain (and getting all gross).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13+ (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "Brilliant design. Great for washing berries or green beans -- and also great for catching the snippings, too. It's so nice to be able to peel onions, trim radishes, and other vegetables — without having to scoop the peels up by hand. Just peel/snip into the sink and dump all the debris just once. Love it." —Kathryn T.

    42. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to corral your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. in style — so you can actually see which is which when getting dressed in the morning.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    43. A mesh shower caddy so you finally have room for all four conditioners you rotate through, your loofah, and shampoo brush — without getting anything moldy or mildewy. These'll keep everything aired out and dry.

    amazon.com

    Just hang it from your shower curtain rod, and voila!

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    Promising review: "This mesh shower organizer is SO useful! I was living in an apartment with a VERY tiny shower with no place to put a shelf to hold toiletries. There wasn't even space in the shower to bend down and get things off the floor. This 100% fit the bill! I am so happy I purchased it! It made my life so much easier, because all of my soap and hair products and razor were right there rather then me having to find some way to bend down and get the things I needed. Now that I have moved out of that apartment I hung this organizer in my boyfriend's normal bathtub/shower and he loves it. It's still really useful even in larger spaces as well. Since it's mesh it dries quickly and doesn't get moldy and gross." —Loretta Ferguson

    This feeling now lies in the past:
