    1. A bath pillow because your bathroom could so be the in-home spa you always dreamed of.

    A two-fold pillow attached to the rim of the bath tub

    Promising review: "This bath pillow is wonderful! I had the blow-up terry pillow and ditched it for this and I am so glad I did. This pillow is extremely comfortable and the best pillow I have ever tried. It looks as though it would attach easily to any tub. My tub is curved and there was no problem with it conforming to my tub. It stays put with no slippage. The suction cups hold very well. If you want to remove it, then I recommend peeling the suction cups away with your fingernail to prevent ripping the pillow. I recommend removing it and placing it on the side of the tub to air dry to prevent any mold from building up behind it... You will not be disappointed." —Christina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    2. OR — a full-body bath pillow your entire body will probably beg you to lounge on for longer than the typical bath time.


    It also has 3D cushioning that dries quickly and resists mold so you don't get that nasty mildew smell because, well, that's not cute.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! I have whiplash and the pillow provides nice support for my neck while the deluxe model mat provides cushion for my aching back. Additionally, I usually slide down into the tub because I’m short. The pillow and mat provide support so that doesn’t happen. I have a semi-porous finish on my tub, so it’s very hard to find a pillow that will adhere to that surface. This one has many extra-large suction cups, holding the mat in place. For anyone having trouble with that issue, the trick is to put the mat in before adding the water and press hard on each suction cup. The suction cups are easy to remove. Just empty the tub and slide them... So, all of you bath lovers out there, add your Epsom salts or whatever and relax away!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97 (available with or without a pillow).

    3. A ceramic incense burner statue that'll transform the smoke from your incense into a visual that looks like a calming waterfall or fountain. FANCY AS HECK, RIGHT? The burner comes with 10 incense cones to start you off with. Per the reviews, the cones all have a woodsy, bonfire smell but you can always order incense cones with your preferred fragrance.

    FYI: These incense burners are labeled by the seller as appropriate for religious needs *and* for simply adding fragrance to the air in your space, so no worries about disrespecting anyone's culture with this beautiful burner.

    Promising review: "I love my new incense burner! It is mesmerizing to watch the incense smoke flowing down the waterfall design. Now, I need to find more proper backflow incense cones to use with it! Definitely worth the money!" —Deborah M. Kauffman

    Get them from Amazon: burner for $22.98+ (comes with 100 incense cones and a gasket).

    4. A super cool wall mount shelf in case all the stuff in your house is starting to back you into a ~corner~. Now, you can put up a shelf in that corner to keep those little baubles on display but out of the way.,

    Reviewers put this shelf in a variety of places like living rooms, bathrooms, and nurseries. You can use it to hold books or do even more decorating with family photos, candles, or small sculptures.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this little shelf! I needed someplace up and out of my children’s reach for my Precious Moments statues. This is a perfect size and utilizes space I never even realized we had available. I would not recommend for picture frames 5x7 inches and larger, as each shelf is not very tall. Still, for little knick-knacks and things you’d like to display, it is absolutely perfect and so cheap! Assembly was very easy — don’t overthink it, LOL — and installation was even easier." —Autumn Reese

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in five colors).

    5. A set of accent chairs that'll give any room in your house an extra sophisticated feel.

    two circular-shaped velvet accent chairs in green with green pillows and a lighter green and white rug

    Promising review: "It’s a beautiful, sturdy, and comfortable chair. I’m using it with my writing desk. I have a desk job during the day and didn’t want a regular desk chair. This chair allows me to sit crisscross apple sauce. I liked it so much that I bought another." —Diane D.

    Get the set from Amazon for $189 (available in six colors).

    Promising Review: "Everyone needs to raise their feet to 💩and I am not gonna talk about why as I think anyone who is searching for this product is already aware of that. But this one is stylish, warm, and looks pretty unlike a clunky plastic one. I absolutely love it and loveeee that it has a part you can massage your feet on! And the best thing is if you ever throw it in the garbage..., it will not end up poisoning our earth! And it is excellent quality so unless you jump on it, you will not break it. It will last a lifetime." —Derin Deniz

    Promising review: "Love this! Nothing beats a long luxurious soak in the tub to relieve the stress of the day and this bath caddy makes it more enjoyable by giving me a safe place to put a glass of wine and my kindle. Bonus: my 5-year-old grandson will now ask to take a bath when he visits me so I can serve him milk and cookies in the tub and he can read his book. Big thumbs-up!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (free shipping).

    8. A hanging reminder tag to make sure everyone in the house stays in sync when it comes to feeding the family pet. This way no one will under- or overfeed it.

    Honeymellows / Etsy

    You can order this as-is ~or~ get it customized to reflect your pet's name. The tag will also be a smart grab if you have a dog walker or sitter come to your house on the regular.

    Promising review: "This is my second one of these. It's customized to remind me to feed the rabbits this time! I love how easy it was to customize and it arrived ridiculously fast. It's so cute and useful. I love it." —Kalina Kunert

    Get it from Honeymellows on Etsy for $10.79+.

    9. Noise-canceling headphones for days when everyone in your house is pretty loud (including the neighbors who aren't in your house but sound like it) but you don't necessarily want to hear it.,

    This will be especially helpful for anyone working or learning from home.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! The sound is clear and the bass is quality. I put on some Kendrick to test out the bass. Ha! They were so easy to use straight out of the box. The headphones were already charged and it was way simple to connect to Bluetooth. The noise-cancelation is great when music is playing and if you’re not playing music, you can still hear which is great for safety reasons. I'm really happy with this purchase. It feels like a quality product. Plus it came with a little travel bag!" —Sticker Ninja

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99+ (free shipping; available in four colors).

    10. A gel-enhanced seat cushion to give your tush the TLC it deserves when you're sitting in your home desk chair.

It'll be perfect for people who spend a lot of time sitting down (whether it's for driving or in an office chair) because it's specifically designed to support your tailbone so you don't get that sharp pain that comes with all those hours on your bum.

    Promising review: "I love this cushion so much I just bought a second one. I’m a short lady and this boosts me about two inches in the driver's seat in my car. I used it driving 2,000 miles from Phoenix, Arizona to Grand Rapids, Michigan and back this year and it was wonderful. No back pain, fatigue, or sciatica while using it. I love that it has the cut out for the tail bone too since mine slightly protrudes. I just bought another one to use in the house too. I'm leaving one in the car. Holds up well and retains its shape nicely and I love that it has a removable washable cover too." —Srossrn

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95 (free shipping).

    11. A reversible baby playmat for parents who want to cater to their kids but don't want their home aesthetic to ~always~ be playpen-inspired.


    This mat features cartoon letters, shapes, and numbers on one side but looks super grown-up and stylish on the other with a simpler, neutral print. It's meant to stimulate kids visually, protect them from hard falls, and make messes easier to clean.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best baby purchase we've made. Guests think it's a beautiful carpet and are so surprised when they see the other side. It's so cute and fun for baby! I love how durable this is and how easy it is to clean. We just sweep it and wash it with dish soap and water. It even survived a red wine spill. The guests who marveled at the carpet-like appearance also marveled at how stain-resistant it is. This mat has made tummy and playtime much safer with our hardwood floors. I can't say enough about how great this thing is!" —Ann F.

    Get it from Amazon for $119.95+ (available in seven styles and two sizes).

    12. A mildew-resistant, tech-storing shower liner curtain to hold up tablets and phones from the outside of the bath so you can watch or read in your favorite spot in the house without drowning your devices.


    This shower liner supports your bathroom tech needs but won't mess up the vibe you're going for with the bathroom décor since you can still add an outside curtain that fits your aesthetic. All you'll have to do when it's time to insert your gadgets is slide your outside curtain to the side, slip in your phone or tablet, and then you're ready to go!

    Promising review: "What do I like most about this shower curtain? 1. My kids now LOVE taking a bath. They race upstairs and into the bathroom to get first dibs on the shows they will watch or the songs they will pick. The curtain securely holds the iPad while the kids easily navigate through their shows and apps. 2. I LOVE taking a bath. After the kids go to bed, I enjoy reading, listening to music, or watching shows on my iPad/Kindle/phone without worrying about getting them damaged by water. The clear curtain allows for easy page-turning and song selection and the sound carries through the curtain well. Bubble bath, wine, and Netflix — yes! 3. It actually works with my sliding glass shower doors. I was able to hang the curtain over the top of the sliding doors and affix the curtain using the included hooks/rings. I may eventually purchase a curtain rod, but it’s quite secure as is. What do I like least? I suppose I wish I knew about this curtain sooner. It would have helped [during] the many nights when I struggled to get the kids to take a bath!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.96.

    13. Mickey Mouse corn holders for anyone who knows a good ear of corn (especially grilled) will ~hands down~ always mean a great time and good eating in the kitchen.

    two corn holders attached to both ends of an ear of corn on a plate and two additional holders sitting beside the plate
    Shop Disney

    If you haven't tried grilled corn, then baby, go get yourself some and make some at home. It's the perfect fall snack too. I guarantee that whatever table you sit at to eat it will instantly become the happiest place on earth.

    Promising review: "We love these corn holders! They hold the corn cob well and go in the dishwasher for cleaning." —MELovesMickey

    Get a set of four from Shop Disney for $6.99.

    14. Couch covers in case you're over your current seating situation but your bank account isn't really interested in the cost of a brand-new one. These will help you switch things up while playing nice with your wallet.

    Promising review: "Awesome slipcover. I have two sofa sleepers in my bonus room that I have had for about 20 years. I didn’t want to get anything new since these are rarely used. I have been looking for slipcovers for a long time and noticed these over the weekend. I finally decided to buy one to see how it worked out. I ordered another one yesterday. I wanted the navy but it wasn’t available so I ordered another red... They will transform your room. They are so easy to put on your sofa and feel nice." —Donna B.

    Get them from Amazon for $40.99+ (free shipping; available in three sizes and 30 colors).

    15. A Novogratz utility bar cart that'll look way more expensive in your home than what you'll actually dish out for it. It'll also ensure you always have a nice, easy setup whenever you feel like having a drink-drink. Isn't that just ~golden~?

    golden utility cart with four black wheels and three open shelves. The cart has wine bottles and glasses on it.

    Heads up: A few reviewers jazzed it up even more with marble sticky paper on each shelf. And yes, you most certainly do deserve to be that bougie with your home decor. Go for it, love! Also, reviewers used it for several different purposes including a plant stand, a beauty product holder, and even just for more decorative shelving.

    Promising review: "I was searching for a bar cart for my home but didn't want to pay a lot for it and this was perfect! It has three shelves that come with a ton of storage space, as well as being pretty sturdy! It was easy to put together and took less than 30 minutes. I'm really pleased!" —Eden1437

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $49.99 (free shipping) and the marble wallpaper for $5.99+ (available in four different sizes).

    16. An essential oil aromatherapy diffuser with eight light settings, a timer, and a sleep mode to help create all of the best bathroom vibes.


    Promising review: "When I first took this out of the box, I was very skeptical because of its size. It's very small but good things come in small packages and this is very true for this diffuser. I have another diffuser for my boys' room and it has been life-changing with their asthma and helps when they are sick. I run it every night and always wanted to get one for my other children's rooms. This one was VERY easy to use, easy to clean, and has been spectacular. I put peppermint in for the first night and my 6- and 5-year-olds were LOVING the smell. The mist is perfect and the best part is the color-changing night light!!! My kids including myself love to watch the colors. I almost want to say that it helps them sleep. The price point is unbeatable. I honestly can't believe what a great value this is. The diffuser in my boys' room was a gift and very expensive and I have to say I like this one so much better!! Thinking of gifting to my siblings this Christmas. I highly recommend this. Have nothing bad to say about it!!" —Lee

    Get from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two styles).

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! It's so versatile. It goes on and off easily. Sometimes I even removed and restuck a couple of times to get it right and it worked great every time. The possibilities for where and how you use it are really endless. There are so many things you could do. I also purchased the Kassa chalk markers with this and they work perfectly and come off cleanly. In the end, I used my contact paper to make a calendar and planner for my fridge and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out." —Kelly

    Get the chalkboard paper from Amazon for $12.95 (free shipping and comes with eight feet of paper) and the chalk markers from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in two tip sizes).

    Promising review: "Excellent, bought it for my 6- and 8-year-old soap dodgers who can't wait to get in the bath now. Good quality, fun gadget." —Dave

    Get it from Firebox for $14 and the AAA batteries from Amazon for $5.82+ (available in five different quantities).

    19. A giant leaning mirror made of shatter-proof glass so you can decorate your home with the finest thing already in it: YOU! :)

    rectangular full-length mirror with a gold frame

    Promising review: "Absolutely stunning, packaged very well, and easy to stand up. I’m a TALL girl (a little over 5-foot-10) and having a mirror that was large enough for me was very important. This does exactly that but isn’t so big that it takes up too much space. The gold trim is super classy and adds an expensive looking quality to the mirror and my room. Overall amazing and definitely worth the buy!" —Bria Million

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in eight styles).

    20. Cable clips destined to eliminate all the ~discord~ created by the many cords in your home.

    two circular cable clips with an open space in the middle and a tiny enclosure on top of that where you would slide a cable through to keep it in place

    Your stuff is going to look so satisfying after you get everything in perfect order with these simple thingamajigs. One reviewer even used these clips to hold up toothbrushes in their bathroom!

    Promising review: "I have beautiful new end tables and a sofa table and wanted to hide the lamp cords that you can see based on the style of the tables. I bought these and am absolutely thrilled with them. They stick on the back of the table and you can direct the cords down the leg of the tables to the outlets. They can be taken off with no harm to the furniture at all, and my tables look much better without those ugly dark chords just hanging down the back." —JK

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in three different quantities and an assortment of colors).

    21. A cup holder that you can trust to hold your drinks securely near your shower because wine (and OK, the alcohol-free stuff too) should always be within arm's reach.


    FYI: Multiple reviewers say they use this cup holder for everything from shampoo bottles to body wash!

    Promising review: "My wife got me this as a Christmas present and I must admit I rolled my eyes when I opened the box. 'That'll never work' I thought to myself. We stuck it on the shower wall that day and have had no issues since. It's still sticking some 60 days later and shows no signs of slipping. It holds beer cans and plastic pint glasses like a boss and for those days when I'm feeling super bourgeois and make a cocktail, but dump it in a Tervis tumbler — it fits too! Shower beers will never be the same again!" —Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in six colors).

    22. A bedside tray bound to make you feel like there's an invisible butler in your room making sure you barely have to stretch your arm to get everything you need while hanging out in bed.

    The tray is meant to adhere to most bed frames or rails. It's perfect for holding a thin laptop, tablet, your phone, your keys, and remote controllers. The brand asserts that the tray can hold up to 15 pounds.

    Promising review: "I got the white wood shelfie... It is so cute. It's very easy to clamp to the bed frame and holds all your essentials perfectly level. I can tell that it is of high quality due to the thickness and smooth finish of the wood. I am very happy that I chose this one!" –Ocean Blue Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (free shipping; available in three styles and two colors).

    23. A power perch to keep all of your electronics close to an outlet and keep their cords from going wild for a clean, organized look.


    Promising review: "If you have gizmos that need to perch near their outlet (hubs for smart lights, voice assistants, electric toothbrushes, or shavers), then this is a great product that elevates these items off the countertop or floor. Installation is easy; the two pieces slide together, you remove the existing outlet cover, and then the new outlet panel provides the holding power for the shelf. If the plugs you have for your devices aren't oversized squares or don't need to share the outlet with a Wi-Fi booster, then this product is worth five stars. I had a Wi-Fi booster that had to share the outlet with an oversized plug and it's a little snug but they fit!" —2lilac2

    Get it from Amazon from $7.99+ (available in one- and two-packs and two color options).

    24. A hanger stacker that'll turn laundry day into such a quick breeze because be honest, washing clothes is the easy part. Not having to wade through unsorted clean clothes that tend to hang out on your bed for three days is what you need more support with.

    a metal rack holding a ton of plastic hangers stacked on top of each other neatly

    Consider this stacker your new support since you'll be able to hang everything up in a snap now that you'll actually be able to find hangers without the task of untangling them.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time. I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a pain so to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double-boxed and nicely packaged within. Assembly was simple with a total of four screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base and the wrench included. No personal tools were needed. The hanger stand doesn't wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully, it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle! I'm buying another for child-size hangers." —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.46 (available in six quantity selections).

    25. Festive reversible banners giving out a "Happy Fall" salutation until you get ready to flip 'em over and welcome hungry trick-or-treaters on October 31st! When Halloween's over (or the last bucket of candy is gone), you can flip this baby right back over and go back to celebrating fall.

    The spray has a lemon eucalyptus scent created with natural essential oils so it shouldn't mess with allergies! This spray is also made by a family-owned business in the USA.

    Promising review: "I'm honestly beyond impressed with this spray! Not only does it eliminate the shoe odor after a day of work or a long night out, but it also smells fantastic. All it takes is a couple of sprays in each shoe and then my entire closet smells of freshness for almost two whole days! I will definitely buy again and not only for the shoes!" —Anomaly

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    27. A sunrise alarm clock! It has a sunrise stimulation wake-up setting that'll gradually increase its light similar to a real morning sunrise so you wake up naturally instead of being jolted by a janky alarm sound. It'll also work reversibly for creating a sunset when you're ready for bed.

    Behold, your own personal sun! This clock comes with eight color options, 20 brightness settings, seven nature sound options, FM radio, and a USB power cable.

    Promising review: "I wasn't too sure about this wake-up light when I ordered it. But do not worry. The book guides you through the setup which is very easy. I had absolutely no problem setting the clock up and I love this light. it's really beautiful and well worth the money!" —Ginaaaaa

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (free shipping).

They're still super soft. I'm definitely sold and have been slowly replacing all the other sheet sets in my house with these. UPDATE: I've now been using this sheet set (in white) for a few months.

    29. A satin pillowcase set that'll zhuzh up your bedroom decor by day and help minimize hair breakage and dryness as you sleep on it by night. Two birds. One stone. Or should I say, two pillowcases, one amazing grab? Hehehe.


    Promising review: "These pillowcases are lovely. I'm so glad I made the switch from cheap cotton pillowcases to these satin ones. I got these since I have issues with hair breakage and I have noticed that I have less fall-out and frizziness when it comes to my hair. I also noticed that I don't wake up with a build-up of oil on my face, which was a pleasant surprise. They feel cool to the touch and have the pleasant feel of silk, so it feels luxurious to lay down with these at the end of a long day. I'd highly recommend these, especially for the low cost." —Amber J.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (two in a pack; available in 18 colors and multiple sizes).

    30. Window film with an iridescent finish that'll give you all the privacy you want in your home (especially if you're not into curtains or shutters) while also splashing little rainbows in your home depending on the sunshine each day.,

    Your home is going to be your little sanctuary of (private) happiness and isn't that just great?! 🌈😊

    Promising review: "I actually loved all the natural light in my shop. However, summer here in the South is a scorcher and there was just way too much heat penetrating through my windows. This product was exactly what I needed. I didn’t have to sacrifice my bright natural light and the room instantly dropped 10 degrees after installing the film. It is very thick and durable with a very pretty design. I had absolutely no trouble with the install. While the backing was still on, I loosely taped the film onto the window and cut out to the approximate size leaving a small amount of overhang. I used a few drops of Dawn mixed with water in an old Windex bottle. To me, that is the one make or break step to any window film. Douse both the window And film with soapy water. The wetter the better so you can move it around easily! I also invested in actual window tint squeegees years ago (they don’t cost that much) and believe they are way easier to work with... I finished with a straight razor blade to cut away any overhang and those super irritating places where the silicone bulges out around the frame. All in all, it took approximately 20 minutes per window from start to finish and I could not be happier!!! 😁 Bonus feature: When the sun shines directly through, it reflects huge rainbows 🌈 and tie-dye spheres all over the entire room!!!!!! Wow & Yay 🤩" —Raynie Boley

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven size options).

    31. A four-bag laundry sorter on wheels so everyone in your household has a spot to put their dirty clothes and no one can accuse the other of mixing things up and misplacing stuff when it's needed.

    Four rectangular bags hanging from a metal frame on wheels

    This'll keep dirty clothes from piling up too long and creating an odor, and will also help with your household organization since the clothes will be corralled into one place in the house. You could assign the bags to each person in your household (up to four people) or just have them separate colors, whites, linens, and towels. The bags are also decently sized which should encourage everyone to wash as soon as they fill up without feeling overwhelmed with too many clothes.

    Promising review: "So, I purchased this to organize and create a laundry system. Up until this point, I used one basket for everything. Wow. What a time-saver this has been. I now do wash when any baby (two) or adult (two) js running low on their clothes. Before purchasing, I wondered how much each of the four bags could hold. I have one bag designated to my husband, one to me, one to linens, and one to babies. My husband's (who wears a size L or XL) bag held one week's worth of clothes. ALL IN JUST ONE OF THE FOUR. This most definitely simplified my laundry." —Mackenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $38.87 (available in two colors).

    32. A light curtain that'll make you wonder why you didn't think of adding a literal wall of lights to your home long ago.

    The curtain is waterproof, has eight light settings controlled by a remote, and can be used indoors or outdoors. Layer the light strings with sheer curtains to add to your room's ambience. By the way, lots of reviewers noted that these curtains can be difficult to hang up by yourself because the lights get tangled but many shared a hack: Don't untie the long lights from each other until you've already hung up the curtain.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with these lights! They were so easy to put up (took me about five minutes). They add such beauty to my room. I am so happy with this purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 and the sheer curtains for $15.99+ (available in 16 sizes and 19 colors).

    33. An "Angry Mama" microwave cleaner so food and juices wipe off smooth and easy when they do happen to splatter everywhere and no one'll find gunk and get mad when it's their turn to warm up food.

    The microwave cleaner is actually a small bottle shaped like a woman's shoulders and head. Her head has tiny holes where the cleaning concoction will spurt from to clean the microwave. It's sitting inside of a microwave.

    Just add water and vinegar, and place this gadget inside for five to eight minutes. Afterward, the nasty splatters will wipe right off. Enforcing a "must use the Angry Mama" rule is also a great, fun, and memorable way to teach the entire household that they shouldn't forget to cover stuff in the microwave, but when they do, they had BETTER clean it up.

    Promising review: "I usually clean the microwave with a Mr. Clean Eraser. My sister recommended this so I got one. It helped remove cooked-on sauces, cheese, and everything that my daughters made but did not clean up after. This worked beautifully. I used it and just took a paper towel to wipe everything away that was loosened up. One thing: DO add the drops of lemon juice or your home will smell like vinegar for at least an hour!" —Chilcote

    34. Light-dimming stickers to prevent the blinking lights on all of your electronics from keeping you awake and your mind racing when you're trying to sleep in a room with electronics.,

    Also, yes, you can use it to cover up the camera on your laptop if you're like me and regularly think about the fact that the government is probably, definitely watching your every move. Btw, these light-dimming stickers are meant to decrease the stark brightness, not eliminate the light altogether. The package comes with over 100 dimming stickers meant to diminish about 50-80% of the light.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd had these for the last 15 years. If you have electronics in your bedroom and hate the light they put out, then this is what you're looking for. Now all my chargers are nice and dim, my Bluetooth audio device no longer guides ships safely to shore, and I can leave my amplifier on a sleep timer without planes headed into the nearby international airport mistaking it for runway lights. If you have an overly bright indicator light under a smooth surface, this is the solution... I used to have to open up my electronics and draw on the LEDs with a Sharpie or stick black sheets of paper in front of the lights, but this is a much simpler solution." —J.G. Kerns

    35. A touchless trashcan with a motion sensor that'll pop open the lid whenever you want to throw anything away. It also comes with a lemon-scented fragrance cartridge so it'll hold the dirty stinky trash smells in and instead let a citrus-y smell out.


    The trash can runs on an AC adapter (included) or four AA batteries which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "This trash can is just the right size for our bathroom. My purpose in buying it was to have a covered trash can that reduces odor. This can does that. As a bonus, I like the way the bag is held into place such that it never falls down into the can and is not visible from the outside of the can." —Charles Bartlett

    Get it from Amazon for $37.75+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    36. An attachable wine aerator to make your cheap Trader Joe's wine taste so good, you'll think your home magically turned into Napa Valley.

    A wine bottle with the glass aerator attached to its top pouring wine into a glass

    Promising review: "A must-have for any household. 7-Eleven wine has never tasted better! Traders Joe's two-buck Chuck will never be the same. I thought it was gonna be all in my head but this is straight Hogwarts magic. And it comes with two! SOLD!" —Analisa

    37. Smart plug-ins that'll help you turn devices on and off using an app on your phone. You'll also be able to set timers for when you want devices to shut off in your home when you're not there. Sigh. Can't you just TASTE that cheaper electricity bill that'll be hot and ready in your inbox soon?!

    These plug-ins are compatible with Alexa too so yeah, you might be able to just say, "Alexa, turn off my lamp" when you're ready to turn lights out for bedtime or "Alexa turn off my flat iron" to save your house from burning down. The free app “Gosund” is compatible with mobile devices IOS 8.0 above, Android 4.4 above.

    Promising review: "Love these! They have made my life so much easier. I have three lamps and one fan connected to each other. Now, I don’t have to get out of my comfy bed when I forget to turn off something downstairs! Wooo! Tip: Make sure you download the BLUE app (not the green one!) and then the set-up is super easy and quick." —Patricia

    38. A three-tier shelf to put over the toilet for more storage and organization space. I love that it's made of faux wood which means it'll also look like actual home decor unlike the sterile plastic and metal ones. Based on the review photos, this cute shelf will be a godsend for tiny bathrooms.,

    Promising review: "DO NOT HESITATE!!! Purchase this! You won’t find a better price. I looked at Walmart, Target, Wayfair, Overstock... They all had the same thing for way more $. This is the best price you’ll find this for! It's so sleek and clean and cute! We have a tiny bathroom and wanted to add more storage without taking up room. This was PERFECT! It even came with bolts to nail it into the wall so it’s secure, which was super thoughtful considering I have a little one. Love this!!!" —Kaytlin Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $65.95.

    39. An attachable silicone colander so draining things doesn't have to be so... ya know... draining. It'll work for your pots, pans, and bowls. And yeah, cooking at home will be wayyy better with this baby.


    It's dishwasher-safe, FDA-approved, and it'll save you space those larger sifts usually take up.

    Promising reviews: "This is the coolest kitchen gadget I've bought in a long time. No filling the dishwasher with huge colanders. You snap this on your cooking pot and drain. Then, after a quick wash in the sink and you're done. It holds securely and I've only lost a few noodles over the top edge when the pan was too small for what I was making. I made angel hair pasta fully expecting it to go all through the holes like a regular colander and they didn't even poke through let alone come out!" —Holly B. Nash

    40. Wood polish and conditioner to make even the most high-traffic wood surfaces in your house look brand-spankin' new. One scroll through the before-and-after pictures for this product on Amazon and it'll be very clear why it has so many 5-star reviews.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic... This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    41. A door draft-stopper so you can keep the heat or the cool air in your home instead of letting it seep out. It's also made of waterproof silicone and meant to prevent bugs and light amounts of water from coming in too.


    Reviewers also shared that it also helped keep bugs out and was very easy to install.

    Promising review: "I bought it because there was a HUGE gap underneath the door leading into my house from the garage. Anytime I walked by it, I could feel a ton of cold air coming through... It comes longer than the average door so measure twice and cut once. Then, peel the adhesive off and stick on the door. I'm pretty sure a monkey could do it and actually do a decent job. I definitely feel less cold air which also means less hot air when it hits 110 degrees in August. In conclusion, if you have a gap under your door, then buy this thing. It'll pay for itself with the heater/AC kicking on less often." —Username taken

    42. A wine rack that quite literally looks like "home" and will bring all of the elegance to your affinity for cheap vino and glasses.,

    Promising review: "I wanted a rack to hold wine bottles instead of just putting them on top of the refrigerator and all of the ones that you put on the counter were $20–$40. Then, I saw this one and liked the looks of it. I have had it on my wall for a couple of weeks now and love it! It actually holds five normal bottles of wine or four of the big ones. It's very well-made and of great value.." —KMVOLZ

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in four "home" font styles).

    43. An automatic independent vacuum to make cleaning your floors a 100% hands-off experience. It'll work via remote on carpets, tile, and hardwood floors. Plus, you can set a timer so it'll clean every day.

    I watched this thing work in person (at my bestie's new house full of hardwood floors) and was pleasantly surprised to find that it really picks up even the tiniest floor particles and moves easily around (and under) furniture. It'll run on a 110-minute cycle with different cleaning modes and your preset vacuuming times. From what I've seen, it's also pretty good around pets too, although that will depend on your pets' temperament specifically. My bestie's hyper puppy was super chill about this vacuum, surprisingly.

    Promising review: "This vacuum is so amazing! I bought it because after having a second baby, I barely have time to vacuum and I have a toddler who likes to roll around on the carpet. It gets extremely messy with his snacks so I needed to vacuum every day. This vacuum saved me so much time because now I don’t need to vacuum and my toddler started to pick up his toys to clear the way for his new 'robot friend.' This vacuum actually picked up more dust than my original vacuum and it will dock itself when it needs to charge or when you are done with it. This is an amazing vacuum at a lower price!" —Happy Mom

    44. Cleaning packets that'll only require you to stick the packet into your garbage disposal and turn it on. The packet will eliminate the odor it can get from all the food it knocks down for you — without any failed attempts at squeezing your hand down into the abyss with a sponge.,

    BTW, it's lemon-scented and the packets are biodegradable so they won't screw up the environment once they go down your drain and out into the sewage.

    Promising review: "We moved into a townhouse that had a garbage disposal in the kitchen. I never had one growing up and didn't think too much about it until the funky smell started. I researched ways to clean it and came across these. I decided to order a four-pack and try them. THEY ARE LIFE-CHANGING. Just run some water, toss the packet in, and turn on the disposal. The little packet does all the hard work for you. I order a new set as soon as we start to run low." —Lucas Brothers
