    Price: $40 (available in three colors)

    3. A 10-piece glass storage container set so you can actually see the leftovers in your fridge, instead of rummaging through countless paper takeout containers.

Which means fewer dishes to wash, which is always good news.

    Promising review: "I first discovered this at a hotel suite with a kitchen and was amazed at its quality. One sponge keeps its integrity after many uses compared to other basic dual sided scrub sponges that fall apart quicker.

    Price: $9.99

    7. A cordless electric wine bottle opener that opens vino at the push of a button so you don't have to struggle with tough corks ever again. One reviewer said that they've had this up for up to 10 years and it still works like the day they bought it — that's $19.99 well spent, wine lover. 🍷
