    51 Things To Make Every Part Of Your Life More Put Together (Minimal Effort Required)

    From your daily chores to wardrobe to your ~home decor~, prepare to just feel all around better — and dare I say, adult-like.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An electric fabric defuzzer, because hand-picking all the pills off your favorite sweater is not a cute look — we've all been there. This under-$15 tool will bring allll your knits (and anything pilled, even old sheets!) back to their former glory.

    A reviewer's before/after of a knit piece of clothing covered in pills, and then with the pills all removed
    amazon.com

    These'll shave 'em right off with one pass — without damaging your sweaters.

    Promising review: "OK, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Dena Jensen

    2. A Iron Out rust stain remover you can use on interior *and* exterior stains from the bathroom to the concrete. The formula clings to the stain — you don't even need to scrub!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Worked on contact. No scrubbing, or pulling out the brush, just let it sit for a few minutes and the orange rust stains were gone. We have very hard well water and when out softener died, we needed a little time to research and save up for a new system. I was using everything under the sun with all the elbow grease I could muster to remove the stains. Until I tried Iron Out. Already bought more." —Stevie

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    3. A nongreasy eye cream designed to deflate your under eye bags, hydrate your delicate skin, and brighten your under-eyes, thanks to a blend of aloe, rosehip seed oil, and vitamins C and E. Under eye bags and circles are natural and NBD, but helping reduce their appearance can make you ~feel~ more awake!

    Reviewer before and after showing the cream tightened and brightened their under-eye area
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using this daily for about eight months now. I am 60 years old. It reduced the puffiness and bags under my eyes. I am Sicilian and had dark circles. It has brightened up my eye area. I am very surprised as I have paid much more for eye creams that have done so much less. I recently had precancerous cells removed at the bridge of my nose. After healing, I was left with a dark scar. The dermatologist told me that it would heal over time. Since I began to apply this eye cream, the mark has almost disappeared entirely. I shop constantly from Amazon. This is the first time that I have taken the time to write a review. That's how impressed I am with this product. If you decide to purchase this, you won't be sorry." —Lynda M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. A set of bed bands that will keep your fitted sheets neatly tucked under your mattress, so you'll sleep more comfortably *and* be able to make your bed wayyyy faster in the morning. And making your bed is really the best way to start a productive day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY...SINGLE...NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors and two sizes).

    5. A handy-dandy portable charger for all those times you leave the house without checking how much battery power you have. Oh, am I the only one who does that?

    The 2021 version of the bank, which is 15% smaller, 28% lighter, and 36% thinner
    Amazon

    This has three USB ports to charge three devices at a time, and it holds enough juice to charge *3.6* iPhone 8s — so it's OK if you forget to charge *this* bb all the time too.

    Promising review: "I love this portable charger! I didn’t think it would be a good idea, because normally your portable chargers die within the first charge it does. I have charged my phone over four times and haven’t had to charge it! That is including just leaving it in my bag for weeks until I need it again. It will not disappoint! I love it!" —MacMak

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (also available in blue).

    6. A posture corrector, because if you hunch over your computer as much as I do, your back is probably in a world of hurt. You can wear this for a few hours at a time (even under your clothes) for a gentle reminder to sit or stand up straight you'll get more and more used to over time — and even do it *without* the corrector on.

    A reviewer's before/after showing the difference the corrector makes on their shoulder rounding
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is WONDERFUL! I’ve been experiencing middle back pain for some time now, in part because my posture is bad. After the first few hours, it was greatly alleviated. I leave it on for a few hours, take it off for a few, and put it back on again. First relief I’ve had in a long time! But that’s not all. It is so well made, unlike any other posture corrector I’ve ever had, because it is 1) easy to put on, 2) made of comfortable material, and 3) brilliantly designed so that it doesn’t make you feel constricted. Furthermore, the hook-and-loop straps that adjust are narrower than what you stick them to so, unlike others I’ve had, they don’t overlap and scratch you! I am so grateful for this! It’s the greatest!" —Marylynn G. Stults

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    7. A bag of Miracle-Gro water-storing crystals that'll help solve both over- *and* underwatering struggles so your plants thrive (and you look like you are too). Just mix in with your soil and the crystals absorb water now and slowly release over time. It works for both indoor and outdoor plants, too!

    A sink full of plants with five stars and the text "I never write reviews but I had to leave town for 3 weeks and used these for the first time. When I got home my plants were greener than ever!"
    amazon.com

    If you don't want to repot your existing plants, just poke holes in the soil and add!

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! We have a raised-bed vegetable garden and our plants were forever dying. I mixed these in with the soil this year and our plants are flourishing! I was even able to see how much the crystal expand when I was taking out some of the soil to add new plants. I'm excited to see how long they hold up. But, so far, we've been using them for over a month and we are beyond pleased." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    8. A pair of soft silicone grips to keep your glasses from slipping off your face when you look down so you don't have too push them up 5,000 times a day. This is one of those inventions that makes you think, "Well why didn't I think of that?!"

    Model with the grips holding the glasses behind their ear
    Amazon

    Reviewers note they'll keep your glasses comfier, too!

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issue. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. Tried a different pair of guards and they just did not do the job. Purchased these and what a difference; my glasses have never fit better, and oftentimes I forget to take them off they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    Get a set of five pairs from Amazon for $6.99 (available in clear, gray, and black).

    9. A wall-mounted rack to keep your broom, Swiffer, and mop out of the dust before they can even sweep it up. And now you can actually (::sheds tear::) walk into your broom closet without tripping over a million handles.

    A reviewer with brooms and swiffers hanging from a small wall behind a door
    amazon.com

    Freed up floor space = more room for storage bins!!!!!

    Promising review: "I have a small apartment, and the broom closet was always a mess, with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any-size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dustpan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!" —Jacqui Nibbelin

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A 🙌 no-scrub, no-wipe 🙌 Wet & Forget cleaner so you can keep your shower clean and mildew-free by spraying just *once a week*. You'll feel more ready to take on the day when you wash your hair in a shower that's...actually clean all the time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Best invention ever? Possibly.

    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." —Stephanie Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    11. A car air freshener reed diffuser you can customize with *23* scents to keep your wheels smelling fresh, whether you cart around messy kids, keep your gym gear in the back seat, or stop for french fries and don't want your car smelling like McDonald's forever.

    The diffiser hanging from a rear view mirror
    Amber and Wood Co.

    I personally love the smell of McDonald's in the car, but you do you. Just refill when you've run out — you can buy refills right from their shop!

    Promising review: "This is the cutest car fresher and smells amazing! Perfect balance of filling the car but not overwhelming." —indgot

    Get it from Amber and Wood Co. on Etsy for $8.

    12. An over-the-cabinet storage system that'll finally neaten up your three curling irons, plus your straightener and blow dryer. Bonus? No more tripping over random cords on your way to pee.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and it also looks nice. It fits two of my blow dryers, a flat iron, and curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well(just use the twisties it came with to secure them in place, but the basket fit perfectly to my cabinet). Worth the buy. :)" —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in eight colors).

    13. An undated productivity planner so you can keep your goals ahead of you and your tasks organized starting TODAY, not January 1st.

    Amazon

    It'll help keep track of your to-do lists, calendars, schedules, and goals (both short- and long-term), and even will help you make and keep habits!

    Promising review: "I love planners and every single one I have ever gotten fell short in someway. Not this planner. It has been so helpful and I love the order and flow of the pages...everything just simply makes sense and goes beyond what any average planner can do...completely and keeps me on track and sticking to my goals! Best planner I've ever purchased!" —Kelsey Dyer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 18 colors).

    14. Or if you're looking for something simple, a to-do list notepad for keeping track of your most important tasks, meetings, and habits and check them off in the most satisfying way.

    The notepad, which says "You've got this!"
    Amazon

    It has a clock you can mark your appointments on, to-do list, space for notes, achievements, water in take, and meals and a *special section for the top three things that MUST get done today. I will be purchasing this ASAP.

    Promising review: "You can stop scrolling around looking for the perfect planner because this one is absolutely PERFECT. Really helps manage my time and keeping track of things all across the board. I also appreciate the positivity it exudes. Starts my day off just right!! I'll definitely be ordering more." —Brit

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    15. OR, if there is just one or a few things you want to start (or stop) doing, a habit calendar so you can track daily, weekly, and monthly tasks to get you on the right foot. It's undated so you can start whenever you'd like!

    The habit calender, with a page open to the nature section with activities and days ticked off
    Free Period Press

    It also has a brainstorming section so you can think up all the different things you'd like to be a little more accountable for. Each month has a different illustration and theme for suggestions too (for example, October is sleep-themed!).

    Promising review: "LOVE my habit calendar. Perfect for tracking daily exercise goals. I've been using it to track my training for my upcoming black-belt test. Before I was using a regular calendar and putting stickers on days when I trained. But this way I can track which specific training I did (push-ups, crunches, etc.) each day. Cannot recommend enough." —Summer Ballentine

    Get it from Free Period Press for $18, from Amazon for $18, or from Free Period Press on Etsy for $18.

    Free Period Press is a queer-founded business based in Cleveland and available on Etsy, Amazon, and the Free Period Press website.

    16. A set of surprisingly inexpensive drawer organizers so you can keep your bras, socks, scarves, and well.... ~drawers~ in order. No more digging through and messing everything up when you're already running late.

    A reviewer's before/after of a messy drawer, and the same drawer neatly organized in these bins
    amazon.com

    They're made from a mold-proof fabric, too, so that's cool. And *bonus*: they collapse to store flat when not in use. You get four bins: a six-cell (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an eight-cell (great for undies), a seven-cell (designed for bras), and a 24-cell (great for socks)

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C-cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $15.87 (available in seven colors).

    17. A grocery list pad you can check off as you run out of items, making getting home and screaming, "Oh crap, I forgot the eggs?!" a thing of the past.

    The notepad in blue with suggested items with check boxes and blank spaces to fill in your own
    Amazon

    Add a little method to the madness of your next Target run.

    Promising review: "This is the best. I can't express how much better this has made my grocery shopping experience — faster, more organized, and more comprehensive. No more 'oh, what else do we need?' brainstorming sessions at home, and no more 'we have to walk down every aisle to make sure we didn't forget something' when you're at the store. It makes meal planning easy and generally hits on most of the things I need at the store. I only wish it were truly customizable for MY general shopping needs — that would be the perfect shopping list." —Reasonable Person

    Get it from Amazon for $6.36+ (available in four colors, plus specialized lists for keto, vegan, and vegetarian diets).

    18. A storage lid organizer you'll wish you bought years and years (and years) ago. It'll end the nightmare of trying to figure out which lid belongs to which container (or losing a lid...sigh) and put a stop to the cascade of containers that rains on your head when trying to find the right size. Virgos, rejoice!

    Amazon

    The dividers are adjustable so you can customize your set depending on what size containers you have!

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this storage container. Sounds silly, but it changed my life. No longer do I have storage container Jenga! No more stuff falling out of the cabinet every time I open the cupboard. Now I can stack my lids in the organizer and my storage containers fit nicely on the shelf, and I have a lot of storage containers. I would definitely buy this again and again. Great product." —Laura H.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four sizes and sets).

    19. A pill organizer with removable containers for each day of the week (and four sections per day) so you never miss a dose again or spend all afternoon thinking "did I take that today...or was that just yesterday blurring into today?"

    The organizer, with hands holding one day, showing the compartments which say morn, noon, eve, and bed
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have had this for a few months now. don’t think I’ve missed any medicine since I started using it. I am on 10 different meds which I take several times a day. This is perfect. I love that I can put the day in my purse or pocket and I am set for the day. As a side note when you pull out your new pill pod you know what day it is. Lol. I keep the tower in our medicine chest, and if home just leave the day I am using on top of the tower. Mom saw mine and ordered one. Everyone who I’ve shown it to is sold. It’s a great product. So far it is one of the few products I have rated 5 stars." —Karen R. Starken

    Get it from Amazon for $9.08.

    20. An over-the-door plastic bag organizer to restrain your collecting habits, corral your bags, and make it easy to grab one to use without disturbing the whole assortment. Just reach in the hole!

    The black metal organizer with an oval-shaped opening in the middle so you can grab a bag
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m really happy with my kitchen organizer. It is out of sight, holds a lot of plastic bags and now, and I no longer have a huge bag full of plastic bags in my pantry. Cleared up a lot of space. Awesome!" —Monica

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in eight finishes).

    21. A minimalist silverware tray that'll help you save drawer space, make emptying the dishwasher easier and keep the cutlery for becoming ~clutter-ly~.

    The organizer in grey with silverware organized at an angle inside
    Amazon

    It also comes in a version just for knives.

    Promising review: "I thought this would be handy, and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmothers silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    22. A chic travel-friendly wallet with Rfid-blocking material to keep your identity safe and your passport, credit cards, ID, and boarding pass neat and easy to access. Does anyone else *always* misplace their boarding pass after going through security??

    The purple wallet open to show how much it holds
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect RFID-blocking wallet for traveling abroad. Fits my passport, money (bills and coins), credit cards, and even a pen nice and compactly. Worked perfectly in my big bag as well as in my small evening purse. Not a soft plush leather but exactly what you'd expect for the money. Functional, durable and nice selection of color choices." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 37 colors).

    23. A set of tab divider sticky notes so you can make notes *on top* of your notes and find them easily — perfect for studying for midterms and final exams or for use in library books or textbooks you have to return.

    The multicolor lined tabs with room for notes in a notebook
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, or planner, or magazine, or whatever a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short term memory loss after a car accident, I like reading novels, but can't remember things. So I use one of these as a book mark, and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist." —Delaney

    Get a set of 60 notes in assorted colors from Amazon for $4.99 (available in eight other set sizes).

    24. An undated budget organizer to help you track spending, stick to your budget, pay bills on time (bye bye late fees), AND achieve longer-term financial goals.

    The inside of the planner, with monthly goals, spaces for income, to-do lists, savings, a monthly calendar, and monthly budget
    Amazon

    At the beginning, the planners starts with two pages for setting and breaking down your financial goals, two pages for writing your strategy and tactics, two pages for tracking savings, two pages for debt tracking, followed by 12 months (eight pages per month). And at the end, there are two pages for holiday budgeting, and two pages for an annual summary to track your progress throughout the year.

    Promising review: "I'm new at attempting a budget. It only took me 54 years to figure out it was a good idea. I have been extremely pleased with the three different Clever Fox planners that I own, so I decided to go with this budget journal/tracker. I am so very glad I did. I find it extremely user-friendly and simple to use; I don't feel overwhelmed at all. It is extremely well-made, and I love the paper quality. The purple is so pretty! If you're new to budgeting like me, or an old hand at it, I think you'll be very pleased with this one." —K Howard

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 24 colors).

    25. A 10-piece set of bulk food containers that'll make you say "ahhhhh" when you open your pantry door to discover a neat haven of food instead a mish-mosh of half-empty boxes. Who else seriously loves those "restock" TikToks?

    Five containers with black lids, all in different sizes
    Amazon

    Rather than, you know, opening a cabinet door and having a half-empty box of pasta fall on your head. And they vacuum seal for ~maximum freshness~.

    Promising review: "Love this set! It's pretty enough to set on my countertops, and keeps my frequently used food items close at hand. The ULTIMATE test: After finding no product out there to keep my brown sugar from clumping and hardening, I put it in one of the medium containers. It is SOFT and FRESH! I highly recommend these canisters — pretty, practical, and they WORK! A+" —Kristen B.

    Get the ten-piece set from Amazon for $54.98 (or a five-piece set for $29.99).

    26. A Furemover rubber broom that, despite the name, isn't just for those with shedding pets (although it's great for that) — as one of my BuzzFeed shopping colleagues knows first hand, it's also great at getting *human* hair out of carpet in just a few quick sweeps. You'll be surprised how much more vibrant and clean-looking your carpets and rugs will be!

    It works on all floor types, but is *especially* great on carpet. *And* it has a built-in squeegee great for cleaning up spills on hard surfaces.

    Promising review: "I use this on my wood floors and my rugs. I have three big dogs that shed like crazy. It is the perfect shape and size to fit anywhere to get the fur trapped under couches, tables, etc. As soon as I got it, I tried it out and my jaw dropped after how well it worked. It's completely made of rubber and molded so it wont fall apart." —Brittney

    Promising review: "This is the best $13 I’ve ever spent in my life. I’ve had it for three days and I’ve told like 37 people about it. I don’t have carpet in my house but I have rugs and hard wood floors and giant German shepherd hair tumbleweeds. I’m not kidding I felt like I was swimming in dog hair! I was sweeping with a regular broom multiple times a day and it felt like I was trapped in a fur dust storm. My allergies were begging me to find a solution. I bought ALL the vacuums and blew up every single one of them, including an actual Shop-Vac. This thing somehow magically attracts all the dog hair and dirt in a neat little pile. I will buy this again and again until I die." —Kimber Leigh

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    27. Elizabeth Mott's cult favorite Thank Me Later eyeshadow primer to keep your favorite eye makeup look on lock all day AND all night — *no* creasing. That's right, you will NOT have to reapply before your evening plans.

    A reviewer showing the difference the primer makes — one photo without primer showing the makeup rubbed off and creased after 15 hours, one with the primer showing the sparkly eyeshadow fully on after 15 hours
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high end to low. Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later. I have very oily skin. Using this primer, shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands, if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you, Elizabeth Mott, for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

    Get it from Amazon for $13.48.

    28. A T-shirt roll holder if you don't like to fold but *do* like to keep your tees available logo-up so you can choose which one to wear every day. This makes it very easy!

    My closet door closed with several shirts hanging from a hook at the top of the door. The shirts are attached by rolling them up and putting them through stretchy loops.
    Mal Mower / BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Mal Mower has to say: "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased an Etsy product from!"

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $15.99 or from Amazon Handmade for $20.99.

    The Roll Keeper is owned by Kelso, Washington's resident crafter, Traci. Traci has been crafting for over 40 years and created her storage design to help organize vinyl, soon realizing that it was the perfect organization solution for much more. Her shop has versions for bottles, wrapping paper, pens, and more.

    29. A nifty nimbus magnetic key-holder, because $8 on this adorable item will be a WHOLE lot cheaper than calling a locksmith. The keys-phone-wallet pat on your way out the door only goes so far when you're not even sure where you put your keys yesterday....We *love* Designated Spots for everyday essentials.

    amazon.com

    Attach it to a wall near your front door and never forget — or lose — them again!

    Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love. One of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

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

    A reviewer's  chart next to a bulletin board
    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.

    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.

    31. A très chic storage ottoman that packs a punch of style AND substance — you can sneakily hide your stash of scented candles, little trinkets, or snacks and pretend you are, in fact, a minimalist. As if.

    Amazon, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Aaaaaand the lid doubles as a table!

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord has to say: "I recently got one of these for my new apartment to stash my candles and ~candle accessories~ in and it's pretty much become my favorite piece of furniture?? I use it to prop up my feet during work hours and sometimes if I want to eat on my couch I'll use it as a tray. It's also sturdy enough to sit on, if I ever wanted to have guests over and needed an extra chair. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy to set up — I had it done in less than ten minutes, and probably didn't even need the directions. It also just looks so darn cute (and comes in so many colors that I'm tempted to buy another!)."

    Promising review: "I was using a small foldable step stool in my bedroom to reach the top shelves of my wardrobe. But you know, those things aren’t pretty. It wasn’t be bringing me joy, just begrudging utility. This ottoman brings me joy. It’s pretty, it’s lightweight so I can move it easily to use it as a step stool, and the storage capacity is perfect for things like my nightly moisturizers, my kindle and journals, and other little miscellaneous things." —Monica N.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in nine colors).

    32. A pet hair-removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but if I could buy stock in the ChomChom I would! This is incredible. I immediately started using it on blankets, cat tree, towels that the cats lay on, bed skirt, every cloth or soft surface that the cats touch and TONS of fur started coming off! It's simple and easy, no sticky paper that barely does anything. The design is ingenious! It's a roller that goes back and forth about a one-quarter turn, so you have to go one direction, then back, and that simple motion not only picks up ALL the hair, but then removes it from the outer part of the roller and deposits it in the interior. When you open the back to reveal the interior, there's all the hair all bunched up! Like freakin' magic! I cannot wait to start cleaning every surface again once I finally cleaned it once. Allergies were going nuts and after picking up all this dust and fur I'm hopeful that will go a long way to feel better. Best product I've bought in years, I cannot believe that the reviews were so darn accurate! Get! This! Product!" —Joshua A. Flanders

    33. A laundry folding board that'll, in a few quick moves, transform your wrinkled piles of clothes into *neat*, *easy-to-sort-through* stacks o' crispness, which take up MUCH less space in your closet...and even your suitcase.

    Promising review: "Let me start off with this: I hate folding laundry. I absolutely hate it. I've seen this thing all over social media. I decided to try it out and OH. MY. GOSH. I freaking love it! It's super easy to use and my clothes are perfectly folded every time. As weird as it sounds, I actually look forward to folding my laundry now. I wish I had purchased this sooner! I like the design it has and I love how compact it is. After I'm finished folding my laundry, I just fold up the folding board and tuck it away! It's lightweight and seems durable. I recommend this to everyone, even those who hate folding clothes. I was skeptical at first, but after trying it out, I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and this product! It's worth every penny!" —Kayli

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

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

    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

    Some reviewers have no trouble refilling the pen, some do, so note that they make come to about $5 per single use.

    Promising review: "This is the greatest thing ever! A lot of the reviews are because people do not understand the concept. No, you cannot add different colors to the pens. One pen, one color, forever. There is no way to clean. That's why they have a pack of more than one. I added my wall paint and I ALWAYS have simple touch-up at anytime. The paint comes out nice and the brush is perfect for smaller touch-up areas. I use this for when the kids scratch the wall or for when I need a cleanup that can't be wiped off. Every household should have this and it should be sold at the checkout isle. This is a must-have for all homeowners!" —Dlanoz

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in a five-pack).

    37. A set of three scrubbing attachments you can simply add to any power drill to make cleaning your tub, floor, appliances, or even the wheels of your car ridiculously fast and easy.

    Promising review: "I constantly have to pester the hubby to help with cleaning the bathroom. Then I bought this and he’s like Tim 'the tool man' Taylor. I guess he just needed more power??? He cleans the bathroom without even being asked because he likes the drill brushes. They work well. The grout lines are clean. It doesn’t take him long. Best money I've ever spent! LOL." —Heather N

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    38. A SockDock, aka a useful tool you can clip dirty socks to (in pairs!), toss the *whole thing* in the washer and dryer, and remove together so NO SOCK gets lost. And you're not stuck searching for a pair when you're already running late and end up wearing mismatched socks (unless you feel like it!).

    Promising review: "Totally obsessed with this! I’ve been using it a few weeks now and have zero complaints! I haven’t lost a single sock since! They always come out paired and completely dried (which was one of my concerns, I wasn’t sure if they were going to dry properly) I would defiantly recommend this! It’s amazing and makes life so much easier! Specially with a toddler and baby on the way!" —Sarah Elizabeth

    39. A hair bonding treatment you can leave on for as little as 15 minutes (or as much as overnight if you wish) to help strengthen and condition hair in just one use. Reviewers swear by it to help the look of their split ends and dry, damaged hair — including reviving curl patterns!

    Like Olaplex, it's a rebonding treatment to help repair heat or chemical damage.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! I was initially looking for Olaplex and came across this so I thought I would give it a try. I have been trying to grow out my hair but the ends become dry and easily damaged, so every time it grows I just need to cut it again. I was about to cut it when I got this in the mail and tried it. It was amazing! Gave my hair that fresh cut look and feel, added tons of shine back in and made it feel so healthy. This is a game changer for me!" —mmsmco

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing ! I believe the last bleaching on my 4C hair I fried it . But after using this tonight, my hair feels so smooth and my curl pattern is back ! **5 stars**!" —j. kindred

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    40. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets for deep cleaning your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These'll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk, so your morning coffee looks aaaand tastes better.

    Just plop one tablet in and let it sit overnight. The foaming action will power away gross stuff, residue, and seemingly permanent odors while you get some beauty sleep.

    Promising review: "Magic tablets! These little tablets were amazing! By far the best item I’ve bought all year. I have been using the same few Contigo mugs every day for coffee for years and the insides were quite stained. This did the trick and they look like new. Amazing!!!" —Amazon Customer

    41. A user-friendly Filtrete air purifier with a true HEPA filter because dust, pollen, and pet dander can get you DOWN (and sneezy) — and make it look like you haven't cleaned in ages, when you totally dusted yesterday. This'll suck so much out of the air (without having to use and clean *so* dang often.

    Promising review: "I got this due to seasonal allergies and asthma. This has been a lifesaver and works great! I love that I can turn off the light at night since I use it in my bedroom and the noise level is fine as it becomes "white noise" in the background." —MFrink

    Get it from Amazon for $87.34.

    42. A bottle of Downy wrinkle release spray you can just spritz on and magically reveal crease-free clothing when you can't bear to even wait the 90 seconds for your steamer to heat up. There are other things to be done! Plus this smells like ~crisp linen~. Ahhhh.

    Promising review: "Everyone needs this! How did I survive without this product? Now that I can get it through Amazon it's even better!! We keep one in several places around the house and always pack a travel size for trips. It's not the same as truly ironing but who does that anymore? A good spritz and let hang in the bathroom overnight, or a quick spritz and a good shake and the difference is amazing. Looks like you have been dressed for a little while instead of climbed wrinkled out of the dryer! If you want crisp use an iron and starch/sizing. Not wrinkled... this is your thing!" —Toby Murphy

    Get a pack of two bottles from Amazon for $13.98. You can also get a three-pack of travel-size bottles for on-the-go use!

    43. A clever little PVC spiral to make rings up to 1.5 sizes smaller without permanent alterations (or a trip to the jewelry store) required, so you stop playing with it or risk losing it. Easy peasy!

    Hands winding the spiral onto an engagement-like ring
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I lost weight during my pregnancy (and after) and my wedding rings kept falling off. I didn't want to get them resized, have a little ball welded in or wear one of those guards that slide around. I pretty much gave up on wearing them. I saw these in one of those silly BuzzFeed lists about Amazon products. I usually just read those things for a good laugh (really who needs a hedgehog shaped planter) I immediately put this item in my cart and I couldn't be happier! It comes with four sizes. I used the smallest size for my engagement ring. It was super easy to wrap around." —DMA

    44. A plant-based, paraben-free shampoo so you can feel good about *finally* washing caked-on foundation out of your favorite tools without irritating sensitive skin or leaving behind residue. The formula'll even leave the bristles soft and conditioned.

    amazon.com

    AND it's cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled plastic.

    Promising review: "This is the best brush shampoo I've ever used. I've used brush shampoos from high-end/luxury lines, too, and they did not work as well as this. First and most importantly for me, there is no scent! I absolutely hate when companies put heavy perfume in products that end up touching or going near the face. When washing brushes with shampoo that is heavily perfumed, that just ends up irritating my sinuses whenever I'm using the brushes to apply makeup. So awful. This is not like that at all, so I can use my makeup brushes without having sinus/allergy trouble. It cleans extremely well! No more going over and over again like with using other makeup brush shampoos. A little goes a long way, too, so it is extremely economical. The value is awesome. I highly recommend this brush shampoo and will continue purchasing it." —L.L.

    45. A borderline miraculous shoe-cleaning kit to erase the damage you've inflicted on your favorite kicks, whether they're leather, nubuck, suede, canvas, vinyl etc. You *knew* you shouldn't have worn them to that muddy festival.

    A reviewer's sneakers: one very dirty with the thick white soles tinted brown, the other completely clean and brand new looking
    amazon.com

    Just add on a little bit of the concentrated cleaner and water to the included brush and scrub away — the blend of saddle soap, oils, and conditioners will gently banish dirt, grime, and even grease and grass stains.

    Promising review: "Sometimes with a little bit of cleaner and a lot of elbow grease you can get your shoes to look respectable again. Sometimes. However, if you're going somewhere nice and need your shoes to look as fresh as the day you purchased them, your only real option is to go out and purchase a new pair. ...Or so I thought. I don't really understand how it's possible, but by simply spraying this cleaner on my shoes and then scrubbing them down, they look brand-spanking-new. The bottle says that it's good for 100 pairs of shoes. My mind is spinning thinking of all the things that I'll be able to buy since I'm not going to be replacing my new shoes anywhere near as often." —Michael Molter

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    46. 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

    It's also water- and smudge-resistant, which 🙌.

    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

    Get a two-pack from Amazon (one for your left eye, one for your right) for $13.97 (available in three sizes).

    47. A sturdy but cute felt purse organizer with tons of pockets for your phone, earbuds, cosmetics, hand sanitizer, Kindle, and all the other *must-haves* you usually leave in the bag you used yesterday. Just grab it, drop it in your Purse Of The Day, and go!

    It comes in three different sizes to fit whatever purses, handbags, or totes you have.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this at first because I have a purse organizer already. But the one I have is not sturdy at all — the sides fall down and I can never keep things organized because of that. Well this one is perfect!!! I would totally recommend it, I got the large one and it fits perfectly in my bag!!! I'm very happy. It's very sturdy and holds all my stuff. No more digging through my purse to try to find things anymore!!" —Amazon Customer

    48. A *customized* set of ManiMe nail stickers made with a thin, 10-free gel for the easiest way to get an at-home manicure, whether you're looking for solid colors or sophisticated or fun nail art. Of course you don't need done nails to look or feel put together, but these mean NO CHIPPED NAILS, until you're ready to swap your set for a new one.

    Manime, ManiMe

    You just scan your nails using your phone camera (holding a business card, Metrocard, gift card, or something similar) and choose your styles — they make the width *custom for you* and will resize for free if the gels don't fit right. They'll outlast hand washing, showering, and all your regular activities until you peel them off. For longer lasting results use your own topcoat (or theirs for $8).

    Get the set pictured above for $25, and shop all the manicures here.

    Promising review: "I'm 100% a convert to ManiMe's and I'm never going back. I tried them on a whim after seeing an ad during COVID quarantine, and I'm so glad I did. I have nails that flake and break easily - and normal polish doesn't stay on, while gels make them weaker with repeated use. With ManiMe, I get two weeks of a salon look manicure...and they protect my nails and help them grow out longer! ManiMe's look amazing and professional, are easy to apply (once you get the hang of it), and stay on about 14 days. I'm getting so many compliments and telling everyone I know about them. It's taken a few tries to get the perfect fit and learn to apply them, and I'm still working on getting the edges right, but customer service is really helpful and generous! I'd recommend adding a top coat after the first week, to seal the edge near the cuticle that may start to come up. The only thing that could possibly be better, is if they continue to make more options so I can keep ordering!" —Julia G.

    Manime co-founder and CEO Jooyeon Song, a Korean-American woman, was inspired to create an easier manicure solution while at Stanford business school with her future business partner David.

    49. An odor-eliminating candle that'll truly knock out the worst pet stinks and leaving your home smelling ahhh-mazing — without you know, actually having to clean every five seconds.

    They're made with soy wax that burns for up to 70 hours, plus the scents are allergy friendly!

    Promising review: "I have multiple dogs in the house and am always concerned that it smells like that to visitors even cleaning everyday. I have use other candles and melts that add a pleasant smell to the underlying odor, but these do better. I have been able to leave the house for hours and when I first open the door, on my return, I don't smell dog. We recently had a house full of people (many of them pet parents) over for Christmas dinner and it was actually commented 'Your house smells really nice. How do you keep the dog smell out?' I laughed and told them I was just wondering if the candles were working. I guess I got the BEST answer." —LLLTexas

    Promising review: "After many years of cleaning the microwave after hearing that familiar 'pop' and finding food all over the microwave this device has kept food off the walls and top of the microwave. The magnets are great for storing inside the microwave making it easy to use. If food hits the cover it's easy to clean by just rinsing in the sink. It's the perfect size for our unit. I couldn't be happier with this." —DT
