    1. An end grain cutting board made with high quality acacia wood, so you can ~cut it out~ with those flimsy cutting boards and hold onto one that lasts forever.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This board is SO BEAUTIFUL, the colors are very contrasting and there is even a bit of a luster within the wood! Not only that, it's also sturdy, a good size, and comes with clear instructions to care for it. I struck gold with this. It's super high quality and I definitely recommend. it" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $36.82+ (available in 10 styles).

    2. An electric toothbrush for people who are not practicing their best oral hygiene habits (for shame!) but know they'd brush better if their toothbrush was more buzz-worthy. Fortunately for your gums, this one is.

    Quip

    I personally love my Quip, but it also won our budget category for the best electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of getting an electric tooth brush but after the first day of use I was hooked! The sleek design and the carrier that sticks to the mirror is very aesthetically pleasing. I'm also one to stick to routine and the 30 second quadrant interval buzz helps feed to that. My gums were sensitive the first week but after using this more they are sparkly clean! My dentist said my teeth and gums are extra healthy and clean! I definitely recommend it!" —Mosancz

    Get it from Quip for $25+ (available in multiple plans).

    3. A Kindle Paperwhite sure to make reading so convenient, you just might find electronic books the ~write~ way to read from now on.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've owned and enjoyed most Amazon readers over the last 10 years and have never had any complaint with any of the devices. The last generation Kindle Paperwhite was a superior device, as was the Kindle Voyage. This Paperwhite seems to take the best of both and create a master device that exceeds the expectations for both. I've had my new Paperwhite for several weeks now and I've come to the conclusion that Amazon may have great difficulty finding a way to make it better next time. Is it really that good? I think it's nothing short of a masterpiece." —R. Dennis Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in two storage sizes).

    4. An acrylic wall calendar – a unique piece of decor that'll ~clearly~ keep you organized...forever.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm very impressed with this at the price for sure. I may have overlooked the instructions for installation, but it was quite obvious how this is attached to the wall. The attachment was quite ingenious and holds the calendar about an inch out from the wall. This was an easy, but requires two people for installation. The glass is fairly heavy and cannot be handled with one hand only. After searching for some time for a quality wall calendar, I am very impressed." —Dino Rachielle

    Get it from Amazon for $80.44.

    5. A peg system drawer insert for making your junk drawers look like a minimalist masterpiece.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a very large and deep kitchen drawer. This allows me to put a full eight-setting china set in the drawer. It is happens to match the maple interiors of my cabinets and that is a visual plus. We had to cut it down to fit but that was fairly easy. I bought two and will most likely use the second to organize storage containers and mixing bowls." —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $67.99 (available in two sizes).

    6. A cordless Dyson vacuum – one day with this and you're gonna realize how much vacuuming ~sucked~ before you brought this beaut home.

    Amazon

    One of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote about why this is a game changing product for your home (#4).

    Promising review: "After using it for a few months, I have to say, this is truly a different kind of vacuum. It has the power of a corded vacuum, but is quieter than any corded vacuum I've used, and obviously way more portable. From the unique hum that it makes, I feel like I'm in the future when I'm using it. Additionally, I really like the trigger system, so you have fine control over the energy consumption. Furthermore, I initially thought the bin emptying mechanism was a silly gimmick, but it turns out to be really genius, because it scrubs any debris from the filter interface, so you'll never have to manually clean the bin." —V.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $243.39.

    7. A cast iron pot sure to make any meal a masterpiece even Gordon Ramsay would applaud.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been experimenting with beef and pork roast meals with this. I LOVE it. There are no scorch marks on the bottom after cooking. The cast iron spreads the heat out so effectively that your entire contents are at nearly the same temperature with no hot spots. Indeed, this device is very heavy. That is what makes it work so well. I have used it on my gas stove in the oven and on a top burner, both methods have worked very well." —quiet bells

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in 10 colors and two sizes).

    8. An LED nail dryer you can invest in and start giving yourself salon-quality manicures at free hundred dollars a piece.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is awesome and very pretty! My daughter and I had such a fun girls' night doing our nails with this lamp. I was impressed and wowed when we found out it had an auto detect sensor. It's so simple to use and I love the white pearl finish. It's beautiful and works well. We used it for 30 second intervals for each coat of polish and sealed the top for a minute and half. No regrets here. I love that a whole hand fits and it's still not nearly as bulky as the ones at the nail salons." —Starkiss22

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three styles).

    9. A rug designed to complement all the furniture you bring home (no matter how many sofas your furball destroys).

    Amazon

    IDK what the dog has against suede, but she *hates* it.

    Promising review: "This is a very nice and unique rug. I really liked the red, orange, and black design. The colors are nice and rich. For a synthetic it is pretty nice – very soft, yet seems like it will last well. I have had zero problems with curling, it lays very flat. I added a nice felt pad under it and it feels very nice." —Sage

    Get the 4' x 6' from Amazon for $70.99 (available in 23 sizes).

    10. A mounted tower toy for pet parents who aren't ~kitten~ around when it comes to keeping their cat happy.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This was very easy to put together. It wedges against my ceiling, so it is very sturdy. I have two growing, energetic kittens, who love it. I'm glad I bought it!" —mary morelli

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in three colors).

    11. An upright garment steamer that'll make your LBD (or multicolored sweatpants, you do you!) look so nice, it's sure to guarantee a ~steamy~ date night.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "This steamer is one of the best purchases I've ever made. This little puppy heats up in a snap and erases wrinkles effortlessly. The height and telescoping pole is great. When not in use, the telescoping pole makes it convenient to downsize for it to fit in a confined space. I've used this not only on clothes but curtains, sofa covers, and sheets – who needs an iron?? Everyone who has ever used my steamer has been in awe of how great it is!" —Anita

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    12. A set of temperature-regulating sheets so after weeks of tossing and turning from sleeping too hot, you're finally gonna say "Sleeping? No sweat!"

    instagram.com, My Sheets Rock

    I got these sheets for my guest bed – my living room runs really hot in the summer and I wanted sheets that'd keep guests cool. But after sleeping on them once, I knew I needed a set for myself. I sleep hot and these were exactly what I needed to keep my body heat at bay when I sleep. I now have multiple sets because, much like a beloved childhood blanket, I can't sleep without these.

    Get them from My Sheets Rock for $139+ (available in eight colors and seven sizes).

    13. A pair of classic high top Chucks so 2020 can be the year you literally put your best foot forward.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "WOAH. These look good with anything and on anyone, I swear! They’re a must!" —charliepimen

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $85 (available in three colors and sizes 7–14).

    14. A shirt folder that might seem like some unnecessary spending, until you see how crisp it makes your clothes. The laundry room is about to become your A-type paradise.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' because when I opened the box and wasn't too convinced by the way it looked. Then I gave it a try with a couple shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat, and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game changer this is. It's a must try! I am in love with how beautiful it leaves my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

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

    15. An oversized denim jacket you can wear over everything, honest and truly, everything in your closet. The king of layering has arrived and their name is your name.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is a great jacket. It is more unique than just a classic black denim jacket. I would recommend this, but be careful not to order it too big because they mean it when they say oversized." —eclecticemma

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $99 (available in M/L).

    16. A zombie face mask sure to make your skin so soft you won't be able to help but feel ~dead~ inside when you think of all the years you've gone without this magic in your skincare routine.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I own a salon and have worked in them for 19 years, and never in my life have I used or seen something so amazing. I have read all about the Hanacure facial, but it is expensive and always on back order. This is the same thing AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell bad at all. There is a veryyyy slight smell to it, but hardly noticeable and not something I'd complain about. This has natural ingredients, and boy does it work. It sucked everything out of my pores and shrunk them, and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES, GONE. Usually I have to have Botox for my forehead. Well, not anymore, that's for sure!!" —Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    17. A scratch cover so the solid wood desk you found on the street can be spruced up and live another life, warm and cozy and snuggled up safe in your place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this stuff. While it doesn't fill in scratches or gouges it really hides them. I use it on wood furniture all the time, and occasionally deep gouge in my wood floor. I tried it on a cherry colored antique silverware box and it made a big difference. Highly recommend as a quick fix." —H. Flynn

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $4.82.

    18. A pair of weighted bracelets that'll increase your workout, even when you're only walking.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these wrist weights, they take my workouts to the next level. They are easily adjustable and so far they haven’t been slipping. I also like that they are narrow enough to fit on my wrist with Fitbit." —Lily

    Get them from Amazon for $35.96+ (available in five colors and two weights).

    19. A pair of noise-canceling headphones for people who know their Spotify playlist (and noise cancelling, well, everything) is a necessary staple in each day.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "These headphones are amazing! I initially thought the Google Assistant integration would be a small bonus, but I totally underestimated how powerful and convenient it would be. It's more than just a trigger for voice commands. It's a surprisingly flawless implementation that allows Google Assistant to turn you into a much more productive multi-tasker. You might be wondering how these headphones perform as headphones. The answer is, great! They’re very comfortable, lightweight, and they don’t make your ears sweat or hurt over long periods of continual usage. The wireless range, sound quality, and the battery life (20 hours) is all top notch for such a portable package. This headset has already exceeded my expectations in so many ways, and I couldn’t be happier with the design." —Jordan T

    Get them from Amazon for $349 (available in three colors).

    20. A nail and cuticle oil made from jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E *and* made to keep your cute-icles lookin' cute.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month while I was religiously applying it two-three times a day in February. I was really seeing great improvements, so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50+ (available in three sizes).

    21. A tool stand that'll organize your yard tools so well, you might actually be able to fit your car in the garage for once.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Having recently renovated my garage, I needed tool storage in one of the corners and found this rack. The price and size were just right. What surprised me was the large amount of stuff I was able to easily store. It is a well-designed tool stand and so easy to place and remove the stored items. Despite a small footprint, it is quite stable. The different size and shape of the tool slots really work like charm for most any item. Putting it together takes seconds and moments later the clutter is gone like magic. No drilling, no hammering, no hardware, no brackets. Nothing quite compares to this. It has made a big difference for little cost." —William

    Get it with casters from Amazon for $42.99 (available in three styles).

    22. A Revlon volumizing hair dryer with an oval-shaped barrel that's gonna help you style from the scalp, giving you smooth hair and gravity-defying volume right at the roots.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This has a ceramic coating, three heat and speed settings, with both pin and tufted bristles that'll help give you a sleek look without all the damage.

    Promising review: "This is such a game changer! It's so easy to use, has great drying power, smooths, and gives AWESOME, BOUNCY, salon-quality volume! I'm throwing out my old blow dryer and round brush. This tool gives me the shine I want without drying out my hair! Plus, my arms aren’t sore after using!" —Tiana

    Get it from Amazon for $49.88+ (available in four colors).

    23. A surprisingly affordable canopy bed frame that'll enhance your bedroom beyond recognition. Wait. Did your room just turn into a high-end Airbnb? Maybe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this bed!!! It came well packaged, with no damage to the box or bed frame. And all the parts are LABELED! The instructions are easy to read. All screw holes drilled and aligned. Seems to be pretty sturdy. I'm very pleased with this purchase." —Karen Rivera

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $168.70+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    24. A hidden jewelry cabinet – a clever storage solution that's sure to keep your best accessories hidden from your grabby partner. You said you'd share your life with them...not your necklaces.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful, sturdy armoire. The one thing people should be aware of: It's not very deep. I primarily bought this armoire for all my bulky bead necklaces, but the doors would not close, so I had to rethink my plans. I have a ton of necklaces, bangles, earrings, etc., so I was able to get them all in here and I really like how visible everything is! I originally wanted to purchase an armoire with drawers, but then you still have to search all the drawers to find what you're looking for. With this, I just open the door and voila! The lights go on as soon as you open the door, which is handy. It is also very low profile and lockable and I must say that it holds a lot." —Eucharia Pieraccini

    Get it on Amazon for $129.99+ (available in three styles).

    25. A smart trashcan so convenient, efficient, and high-tech the only thing you'll have to worry about is Oscar the Grouch wanting to move in.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you've always wanted to believe in your Jedi powers, then look no further than this trash can. A simple wave of the hand (or powerful thought) is all it takes to open this up. And if you want it to close, just walk away! Aside from its super powers, it is also very sturdy, a perfect size, and it's super easy to clean." —Mrs. Ari

    Get it from Amazon for $59.66.

    26. A comfortable car mattress – it may save the day in an emergency, or make every emergency vacation way more manageable.

    Amazon

    Includes one air mattress, two inflatable pillows, one inflator/deflator pump, one repair kit, and one storage bag.

    Promising Review: "I have to say that this is amazing! This bed can be used in a truck or the back of a car, which is so practical. The machine it comes with helps it inflate quickly. It can also be used anytime you're camping, not just in a car. It shocked me how spacious the back seat was with this air mattress. And the cushion is very comfortable. It's easily portable, because it's not heavy at all. Such good quality!" —Amy

    Get the SUV version from Amazon for $59.99 (available in five styles).

    27. A Tula baby carrier for parents who know that carrying their baby is more than a handful.

    Amazon

    This little thing is the Ferrari of infant carriers. Made of 100% cotton, its innovative design adjusts in three width settings and two height settings to allow for an ergonomic position for newborns, infants, and early toddlerhood. The carrier can adjust to carry your child on your back or chest, and uses a wide bottom strap for ultimate comfort for both parent and child.

    Promising Review: "Thissssss! This carrier is saving my sanity! My baby is so happy whenever he is in it! He immediately passes out as soon as he goes in. It's glorious and an essential in my life. The panel has snaps to adjust from a newborn to a 45-pound toddler. It's easy to adjust, breathable, and lives up to the Tula name. Where was this for my other kids? I love it!" —Chris and Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $86.15+ (available in eight colors).

    28. A clear Ninja blender that'll blend in with your kitchen decor as well as it'll blend you up the perfect smoothie.

    Amazon

    This won out in the budget price point for the best blenders on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Promising review: "I’ve had my Ninja for nearly four years and it’s still going strong. My average use is about three times/week. It still blends great, I’ve never had the plastic break, I’ve never been cut by the blades. Handle it with care and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of this investment." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    29. A cutting board and knife stand sure to spruce up your kitchen space and make your counters look cute!

    Amazon

    Complete the look with a bamboo cutting board and a white ceramic knife set.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for small kitchens! It organized my cutting boards and tall knives. The stand is stable enough to support cutting boards that didn't fit, but can go behind. For a small kitchen, this tool kept my essential items organized and ready to use." —Elmey E. Escalante

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    30. A travel wallet with a crossbody strap and a helpful handle on the side, so getting through airpot security (or just your daily commute to work) can be a breeze.

    FreePeople

    Promising review: "This wallet is perfect for those who are tired of lugging around a purse. There is a place for everything and keeps stuff perfectly organized. Great for travel as well as everyday use. I purchased the wallet about five months ago – I use it every day and it is holding up very well!" —dlweber

    Get it from Free People for $68 (available in four colors).

    31. A slim K–cup coffee brewer – grab this if you don't have the counter space for a K-cup machine that takes up the entire kitchen counter.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this machine to replace the giant one I had before which finally died after years of use. I like this one a lot better because the color is prettier and it doesn't take up so much counter space. I like that it only holds one cup of water at a time. My son had a bad habit of letting the water in the big, black Keurig sit around for a couple of days and then using it. Gross. Now I know he can't do that with this machine. It brews a great cup of coffee and seems quieter than my old machine. I have nothing bad to say about this one. I highly recommend it." —Ranger

    Get it from Amazon for $68.16+ (available in three colors).

    32. An electric dehumidifier that'll keep the air in your room from being moist...because even the sound of that is awful.

    Amazon

    This dehumidifier is also lightweight and has a 16-ounce water tank capacity, can remove up to nine ounces per day, and is ideal for small rooms.

    Promising review: "This is a perfect size for my apartment. It is so quiet, you can't hear anything running! The price is great, and I can really feel the difference with the humidity. Before I bought this, I would get out of the shower and try to dry off, but my hands still felt damp and I would have to sit for about 30 minutes to feel dry." —Cynthia Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    33. A copper spice display so you can show off how spicy your life is! Heckin' brag.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I needed extra kitchen space and spices take up lots of room in a cabinet. I love cooking so have lots of spices. I purchased this rack to hang on an outside cabinet wall. It fit perfectly and frees up so much space. I have approximately 36 bottles now stored, all in alphabetical order (how sick is that) so everything is easy to find. I love it." —MMusic

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in two colors).

    34. An electric indoor grill for apartment dwellers who would do anything to get their hands on some real "backyard" BBQ.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Seriously, I love this grill. I recently moved into city and can't use my grill so thought I'd give this a try. It's amazing how well this works considering what it is and what it costs. Meals cooked on this thing look fantastic and taste even better. Seriously, if you've been on the fence about this grill just buy it. You won't be disappointed." —AdventureChuck

    Get it from Amazon for $60.99.

    35. A gel-formula wax made with quick-drying, non-stick ingredients. The ultra-fluid gel "shrink wraps" around hair, meaning you can use it even if your hair is fine, coarse, long, or short.

    amazon.com

    This patented polymer formula is dermatologically tested with an anti-bacterial formula and safe to use on all skin types.

    Promising review: "I first experienced Cirepil wax when getting a Brazilian done at a professional spa. I was blown away at how gentle the wax was on my skin and how I didn't look like a plucked chicken for the first time! The tin fits perfectly in my GiGi wax warmer and is so easy to use. I gave myself a Brazilian for the first time ever and it turned out great! The wax clings to the hair perfectly, which cuts down on any extra 'ouch' pulling. What also helps to attribute to less pain is that no annoying strips are required." —Madison

    Get it from Amazon for $24.61.

    36. A double laundry hamper – it's gonna organize your clothes from the moment they're thrown in the hamper, helping prevent any pink clothes from popping out of your load of whites.

    Amazon

    This durable hamper fits up to four loads of laundry and also has removable liners, which makes it easy to transport your dirty clothes to and from the laundry room.

    Promising review: "I can't believe I'm writing a review for a laundry basket, but I love it that much, so here I am. The quality of this hamper goes way beyond the price. It's attractive, stylish even, and very sturdy. I love it." —Alan McGinnis

    Get it from Amazon for $45.96 (available in seven colors).

    37. A sous vide precision cooker that'll make such delicious entrees, you'll tell this inanimate object how thankful you are that you two were able to ~meat~.

    Amazon

    Attach the Anova Precision Cooker to any water-filled pot, put your food in a sealable bag, and set the time and temperature. The cooker heats and circulates the water to a precise temperature, cooking the food to an exact temperature. This cooking method increases tenderness and retains moisture (without worry of overcooking).

    Promising review: "This makes an Eye of Round roast as tender as a prime rib. It's an excellent product. Just plug the thing in. Make sure your water level is good, then set it and forget it. This thing will cook absolutely perfect food every single time." —Leeway63

    Get it from Amazon for $87.62.

    38. A wire-free bra so comfortable you might see yourself finding reasons to put your bra on, instead of reasons to be taking it off.

    True&Co.

    I am someone who (although the size of my boobs suggests I should do otherwise) prefers to never wear a bra. I don't like the feel of standard underwire, straps, cups, or hooks. I found this online and (because I am easily seduced by online ads) thought I'd give it a try. I was eager to see if there was a bra that made wearing a bra worth it. Guess what? YUP. There is. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing much of anything, but it gives my bod enough support to suggest otherwise. It's also so soft I now genuinely prefer wearing this bra to wearing nothing at all. And I mean that.

    Get it from True&Co. for $64 (available in 12 colors and sizes XS–2X, which is a 42F).

    39. A smooth satin pajama set that'll feel sinfully silky on your skin and make you question how you ever fell asleep before slipping into these.

    Amazon

    I have always preferred to wear, ahem, nothing to bed and finally decided I needed to step up my sleep wardrobe for when family and friends visit. After trying these out I officially switched – I'm a pajama person now! They are so smooth I slide around in my sheets, which I love.

    Promising review: "These are the best pajamas I've ever purchased. I'm completely hooked. The quality is amazing and they're super comfortable. I will be ordering all the other colors." —Mandie

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in 10 colors and sizes S–XL).

    40. And a mulberry silk pillowcase sure to help you fall smoothly into slumber, while keeping your hair smooth at the same time. Bedhead, be gone!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic product for a fair price. Silk pillowcases have always been one of my go-to gifts for anyone – they can be expensive, a luxury item that some people find it hard to invest in for themselves. As a result, I've probably tried and/or purchased almost every mainstream brand out there today. This is by far the best product and somehow also one of the most reasonably priced. The silk is the highest grade and, with the standard at 25mm, they are just as thick, if not thicker, than most products out today. As a result, they remain silky and smooth for many more washes. Other options out there will be disappoint compared to this." —Mark Sarlitto

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in five colors and three sizes).

    41. A KitchenAid mixer, perhaps the most beloved of all culinary items. With this thing, you're gonna be cooking up fantastic family recipes for the rest of your days.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "This mixer is an essential kitchen product. It's sturdy, powerful, and built to last for years. Buy it, find a nice spot for it in your kitchen, and prepare to use it for most (if not all) of your fresh home-baked goods. It's quiet, considering the speed and strength of the engine, and it's aesthetically pleasing (an added bonus). The ability to attach a multitude of adapters makes this a very smart investment for the home. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone." —Ibrahim Yaghnam

    Get it from Amazon for $279+ (available in 45 colors).

    42. An odor-neutralizing candle sure to save your apartment from the smells of your beloved four-legged friend.

    Amazon, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I'm in a small apartment with a large litter box and two particularly well fed cats. These candles were recommended to me by a coworker when I brought up the stress of keeping my place smelling fresh. They are now the only candles I buy, and the only thing I need to keep my home from smelling like pets. I firmly believe they are the best odor control around.

    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 candles 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." —LLL Texas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 23 scents).

    43. And finally, a bidet, because when you realize that washing your bottom after using the bathroom makes even more sense than washing your hands, you're never gonna want to wipe with that dry, wasteful, less-efficient toilet paper ever again.
