    Oh, the ways a hands-free vacuum can change your life.

    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. A fragrance-free allergen spray to help blast away all the things in your house that contribute to the sneeze-itch-redness-inducing anarchy that your body tries to exact on you. It's meant for the air AND surfaces in your space, BTW.

    reviewer's bottle of spray
    amazon.com

    It's designed to reduce pet dander, dust mites, and cockroach allergens! You'll receive the bottle with powder already inside and all you have to do is mix it with water 💧. Also, guess what? You'll be happy to know that this is by a small, family-owned business on Amazon called Allergy Asthma Clean. Check out this cool note from the brand:

    "This product isn't just an ordinary allergen spray. It changed my life. I have had severe allergies and asthma since I was 3. When I was 5, I almost died from an allergy-induced asthma attack. After I got out of the hospital, my father and a team of dedicated chemists formulated this product. I would never be able to live with dogs or cats without this product. I had trouble traveling before this product. This allergen spray changed my life, and I am so thankful that I can bring this product to you. Just because you have an invisible disease does not make you invisible." —Savannah, cofounder of Allergy Asthma Clean

    Promising review: "Great clean product. I've had this for close to three months before I decided to write a review. This thing did wonders for me. First, let me say that I am allergic to dust mites, really bad! To the point of major swelling. I used this spray for an entire week straight and I was able to sleep peacefully. No swelling, no issues. I then stopped using it for a week because I wanted to make sure it wasn't just the air filter I bought. Not using it for a week made my swelling come back; I used it again and it stopped. So, this does indeed work; it's not snake oil. I sprayed it in the center of the room and also sprayed the corners. It works." —Enrique Vargas

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 and don't forget the refill packs so you can minimize plastic waste 🌎.

    2. A set of blackout curtains because sure, the natural light in your home is what made you fall in love with the space, but all that waking up with the birds every morning is, well, for the birds. Time to end all that!

    amazon.com

    And they come in colors that are actually cute! I'm really obsessed with the Fresh Green color.

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with these curtains. The material is thick and heavy. Definitely true blackouts. The color is just as described if not better. It has definitely exceeded my expectations. I will be ordering other colors for sure. Don’t hesitate. Order them now!" —Key Monique

    Get it from Amazon for $16.01 (available in multiple sizes and 26 colors).

    3. A beautiful velvet sectional couch you're gonna love for not just how much it'll beautify your space but also how comfy it is.

    blue velvet sectional couch in a living room with a pink, blue, and beige rug and pink ottoman
    The Novogratz

    Warning: Thanks to its design with pocket coils, this might be one of those fall-asleep-upon-sitting couches, so prepare yourself. You can also adjust the chaise so it's on the left or right depending on your preferences for your space.

    Get it from The Novogratz for $699 (available in four colors). Alsoooo, get 15% off sitewide with our exclusive code NOVOBUZZ (valid during nonsale periods, babes).

    4. A Pura wall plug-in that may be the reason you hang up candles once you get into this super-customizable scent experience.

    BuzzFeed / Marquaysa Battle

    So, I own this, LOVE it, and just might be a reformed candle burner. The plug-in takes two different scent cartridges (two will come with your plug-in and after they run out, you can replace those exactly or get different ones). You can control which scent it lets out into the room, the time it does that, the scent intensity (!!!), how long the scent/entire cartridge stays on, the night-light, AND the night-light's brightness — all through the Pura app. My fave features of these are the scheduling and scent intensity controls. The scheduling is a great way to conserve your fragrance so it's not just going on when you're not even benefitting from it. You can also choose to have it turn off automatically when you leave the house (according to your phone's distance away from the device/your home). I love the scent intensity controls much better than my traditional candle use. I've run into too many candles that smelled great in-store but didn't really move through the actual room once lit at home. Like, if I wanted just a flame and vibes, I would have bought a scentless one 🙄. With the Pura device, I'm always satisfied with the scent and how much of it wafts through my spot, because it's always 100% controlled by me. It's a small luxury item that def contributes to making my home the peaceful getaway I like for it to be. And?! The app will let you know when your cartridge is low so you can re-up before you're out.

    Promising review (from someone that's not me): "I love my Pura Smart Diffuser. As someone who uses multiple smart home products, this was one of the easiest smart products to setup, install, and the app is incredibly user friendly. We are testing the lavender scent on a lower intensity in our larger master bathroom, and you can smell it throughout the entire room. No doubt, we will be ordering a few more for the kitchen, guest rooms, and additional bathrooms. Looking forward to trying out other fragrances." —Charlie Palmer

    Get it from Amazon for $94.54 (available with the plug-in device and two fragrance cartridges; available in multiple dual-fragrance options and don't forget the replacement cartridges).

    5. Marble Pothos plants to bless your space with some gorgeous live greenery.

    The Pothos plant hanging in a macrame hanger
    Brumley and Bloom

    Brumley and Bloom is a woman-owned small business based in Fenton, Michigan, that has such a great variety of plants (like their gorg string of tears plants) based on your tastes and experience with them. My BuzzFeed coworker Christine Forbes adores the ones she got from this shop. Peep her blurb ahead:

    "I've ordered four plants from Brumley and Bloom and they all arrived healthy and beautiful! Just make sure they get plenty of sun after you unbox. Pothos plants can survive in any lighting conditions. Place them anywhere you want. Just...don't eat it (that includes your pets)."

    Promising review (from a customer that's not Christine): "10/10, 5 stars, would totally recommend. It was stuck in the postal system for over a week but, because of how it was packaged, it survived! And even has new growth! I’m so, so happy." —jeanruth

    Get it from Brumley and Bloom on Etsy for $14+ (available in three sizes).

    6. A Purrfect Plants puzzle! You'll keep the plant love going, bring some fun downtime to your home that everyone can work on together, and have some lasting artwork to hang once you're done with the puzzle.

    a completed puzzle with an illustration of three cats that are black, while and orange standing and laying near a plant stand that's brimming with different kinds of plants
    BuzzFeed / Mallory McInnis

    It's from a small business called Badge Bomb that makes amazing giftables like puzzles, buttons, magnets, stickers, greeting cards, totes, and more. All of it's made in the USA and features original artwork from various indie artists. This 500-piece puzzle displays the original illustration from Allison Cole, a Rhode Island–based illustrator and artist. My coworker Mallory McInnis really enjoyed the puzzle she got from there (shown above). Peep what she has to say below:

    "Doing a puzzle is one of my favorite past times, so I was very excited when I saw that Badge Bomb was going to start making them. Over the years I'd admired their shop (I love illustration as much as I love puzzles) and I have an array of their magnets on my fridge. I ordered 'Purrfect Plants' as my first puzzle from their collection because I follow the illustrator, Allison Cole, on Instagram. The puzzle quality was excellent (not too much dust, pieces fit together clearly and easily) and I will definitely be ordering another from their site after I finish making my way through my backlog of puzzles to do."

    Promising review (from someone that's obvs not Mallory): "We liked this one because the graphic quality of it made the pieces fairly easy to put together and not an hours-long strain on all of us. More of a quick, fun puzzle with fast results and multigenerational enjoyment!! The cats and homie design is really fun, too!♥️♥️" —Suzie S.

    Get it from Badge Bomb for $20 (and don't forget the puzzle glue to preserve it once you're done!)

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

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Marquaysa Battle

    I own this mirror and WOW. I was def hesitant to purchase a mirror that cost more than the lil' skinny $5 ones I usually buy 😅. But this time, I wanted a big bawdy one that doesn't make me look bigger or smaller depending on how it leans. (FYI, I googled why that happens, and apparently, it means your mirror is bent. 🙃) So, I purchased this BIG GIRL that won't bend and will help me see my outfit from head to toe. It's quite pretty, looks exactly how it's pictured online if not better, and can be easily moved from room to room if you like. Also, it was shipped with AMAZING care so it wouldn't shatter en route which was my biggest concern about buying a mirror online. The seller wrapped this thang like they were preparing it to survive an apocalypse — loads of Styrofoam padding, bubble wrap, plus extra cardboard with bubble wrap built INSIDE of the cardboard and ALL OF THAT inside another unusually thick cardboard box. Truly the panic room of packaging, IMO. Should I buy another mirror for another bedroom in my house, I'll def purchase this exact one again.

    Promising review (from someone that's not me ): "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 $121.99+ (available in 29 different styles).

    8. 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
    Amazon

    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 $26.79+ (available in four colors and two sizes).

    9. OR — a full-body bath pillow your entire body will probably beg you to lounge on for longer than your typical soak session.

    Amazon

    It has 3D cushioning that dries quickly and resists mold so you don't get that nasty mildew smell AND a cool bag for easy toting and storage.

    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 $45.97 (available with or without a pillow).

    10. Closet dividers! I own these and I can promise that your brain will feel so much better walking into a super-nonproblematic closet.

    BuzzFeed / Marquaysa Battle

    Y'all, it was time to make a change because stuff was literally starting to fall on my head when I had to get something from a "stack" on the shelf 🙃. I was gonna go with those cute fabric storage cubes but ultimately decided that dividers would be the best solution. They let me a) See everything on the shelf at one time and b) Adjust the spacing later if I need to. They're made specifically for wire shelves like the ones in my closet and they were so easy to pop into place without damaging the wall behind the shelf. Love an easy install! I bought one pack to see how I'd like them and ultimately bought a second to fill both shelves in my closet.

    Promising review (from someone that's obvs not me): "I wish I would have bought these a long time ago. I was using baskets to store my folded items on the shelf but I kept forgetting what clothes I had and it also didn't look too great. I switched to these and they are great. These keep your folded items upright, your pile of clothes will not fall over. My shelves now look tidy and I can see all of my clothes." —Charmaine

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $18.99 or a pack of eight for $34.99.

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 a great value.." —KMVOLZ

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in six styles).

    12. A tree-style table lamp that'll serve as a Bluetooth speaker, wireless charger, and light source in one. Yeah, multitasking in style is the name of this game and you absolutely win.

    lamp sitting on a desk in an office overlooking a big city. The lamp has an oval wooden shade that looks like the top portion of a tree, a lamp stem that looks like the tree trunk, and a base where the phone can lay and charge wirelessly
    amazon.com

    It's compatible with iPhones, androids, and all Qi wireless devices. Catch the breakdown below:

    iPhone: 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS MAX, XS, XR, X, 8, 8 Plus 

    Android: Galaxy Note 20, 20 Plus, S21, S21 Plus, S20, S10, Note10, S9

    Promising review: "Lamp is very unique and cool looking. Very convenient to have a lamp, speaker, and charger all in one! Only con is the blue light that indicates device is charging is really bright I have to cover it at night with a black fabric." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99.

    13. And light-dimming stickers (speaking of bright lights that disturb your sleep). These'll prevent the blinking lights on all of your electronics from keeping you awake and your mind racing when you're trying to rest in a room with electronics.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    14. A Radiate portable campfire (yes, from Shark Tank!) that'll turn your backyard into your favorite fall getaway location.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was amazing!!!! We have a relatively small back yard, and this worked out perfect 👌🏾. I bought a plant saucer for a few bucks and put it under the can for safety before we lit it. Will be purchasing more in bulk!" —Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (also available in more quantities).

    15. Organic linen spray so you can snuggle into sheets that smell like freshly washed linens even when you've been slacking on laundry 😬. A few spritzes will buy your nose a bit more time before wash day.

    Promising review: "Anytime I wanna freshen up my room and it’s not time to wash my sheets just yet, I use this linen spray. It smells delightful and I can appreciate that all ingredients in it are all organic. Great product and was shipped promptly. Thank you so much!" —Marcy

    Get it from Herba Botanicals on Etsy for $25 OR let your nose test it out for only $2

    16. A tapas-inspired wooden serving dish that kinda looks like a bowl but works like a tray. Either way, it'll save some space on the dinner table and wherever you store it.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This cool kitchen invention has three tiers and can be ordered in all-natural beechwood or bamboo — both sustainable, eco-friendly materials. It was created by a small family-owned brand called Tappas. It's run by Sandra Portal-Andreu — a proud Cuban and Colombian — and her husband, Juan Andreu.

    Promising review: "Fantastic quality! Love to keep it out in the counter even because it looks so cool! I use it for treats, sweets, snacks, etc.... It’s always filled and used for something — dinner, lunch, entertaining, or just for us at home. I bought two and I’m buying two more to give as gifts! I LOVE IT AND YOU WILL TOO!!!" —Nicole

    Get it from Tappas on Amazon for $89.99.

    17. 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.

    If you haven't tried grilled corn, then, baby, go get yourself an ear or three and make some at home. It's the perfect fall snack, too. I guarantee that whatever table you sit down to eat it at 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

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $225.99+ (available in nine colors).

    19. An adjustable bamboo bathtub tray for propping up food, drinks, tablets, books, hopes, dreams, and whatever else you'll need for a good, long bath.

    long wooden tray that stretches across the entire tub. it has a book, wine glass, and candle sitting on top of it and the reviewer's legs are shown underneath, soaking in sudsy water.
    Amazon

    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 $29.99 (free shipping).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "I have a large window in my bathroom and you can see in from the backyard. Not very private. I like the light but needed privacy, sheer curtains were not enough. This product is very easy to install, and I love the rainbows. This is the cheapest rainbow window cling I could find and it exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be doing more windows." —Ashley Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 10 size options).

    21. Or! This hanging light catcher could usher in the sunlight-induced rainbows without you having to cover your windows at all if you are a curtains-shutters person but still love the vibe.

    Get it from Sol Proaño on Etsy for $120.

    22. A minimalist rug that'll not only add something pretty and neutral but will also be easy to clean since it's machine washable.

    RugsUSA

    Yuppp, you can put this baby in the washing machine! Just wash in cold water on the gentle cycle and don't use bleach. Dry it on the lowest setting and don't wring it.

    Also, can I just say I loooooove this site?! I'm obsessed. IDK why but I love a super-comprehensive home decor site with a million options that I can take my time to wade through. The Rugs USA site not only has loads of options (I know, overwhelming for some) but also a virtual try-before-you-buy feature that lets you upload a pic of your room in real time and "try out" the rugs.

    Get it from RugsUSA for $119+ (available in four sizes; don't forget your rug liner!).

    23. A hanging reminder tag to ensure everyone in the house stays in sync when it comes to feeding the family fur baby.

    a dog tag with a tiny rope for hanging at the top. One side says "the dog has been fed." Another tag shows what the other side can say which is, "Bella has NOT been fed."
    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. It's from a small business based in the UK that specializes in personalized signs meant to "love, inform, and inspire."

    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+.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 5 inches x 7 inches and larger, as each shelf is not very tall. Still, for little knickknacks 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 $19.68 (available in 16 colors).

    25. A bathroom squatting stool because WE ALL POOP AND IT'S A GOOD TIME, OK? It'll be even better since this'll help make bowel movements happen easier and faster by elevating your feet so you're in a squatting position. Plus it's got a foot massager. Real luxury 💩, I know.

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (free shipping).

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

    The gray cushion in an office chair. It has a slightly rectangular shape with rounded edges and an empty space near the tailbone to relieve pressure
    amazon.com

    The cushion is also meant to relieve butt and lower back pain. 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 2 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 $37.95 (free shipping).

    27. A reversible baby play mat for parents who want to cater to their kids but don't want their home aesthetic to always be playpen inspired.

    Amazon, amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $110 (available in seven styles and two sizes).

    28. Stick-on chalkboard paper to turn your wall into a giant notepad for yourself OR to give kids with doodle-prone fingers a designated spot for their artistic destruction.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Amazon reviewers who are parents, teachers, or folks who simply love a DIY situation seem to be raving about this paper. They've used it to create calendars, to-do lists, home menus in the kitchen, labels for household items, and so much more.

    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 8 feet of paper) and the chalk markers from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in two tip sizes).

    29. Festive reversible banners giving out a "Happy Fall" salutation until you're ready to flip 'em over and welcome hungry trick-or-treaters on October 31! When Halloween ends (or the candy's gone), just flip this baby right back over and go back to celebrating fall.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very cute decoration for the front porch. I loved that you can switch between Halloween and fall, as we decorate for both. The material has held up well in several storms and I have received many compliments. FYI on a windy day, the signs tend to flip around but it's not a bother." —Rw26991

    30. 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
    amazon.com

    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 cords just hanging down the back." —JK

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three different quantities and an assortment of colors).

    31. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    32. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $44.99 (free shipping; available in three styles and two colors).

    33. 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you have gizmos that need to perch near their outlet (hubs for smartlights, 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).

    34. A hanger stacker that'll turn laundry day into such a breeze. Washing clothes is easy. It's the pile of unsorted clean clothes living on the bed for three days that we need more support with, no? Now we'll have it.

    amazon.com

    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 $25.05 (available in six quantity selections).

    35. Extra-strength shoe deodorizing spray that'll kick the funk outta your smelly shoes so you'll actually feel comfy sticking your feet in them again — and you'll be able to breathe whenever you walk into your bedroom or closet specifically.

    amazon.com

    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 $9.95.

    36. A deep-pocket microfiber sheet set to help you get proper rest in the comfiest way possible thanks to its soft, hypoallergenic material. No more fighting with one corner popping up every other hour while you catch ZZZs.

    sheets on the bed along with the pillowcases. they're white and black.
    Amazon

    The set features one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. They're also machine washable and fade, stain, shrink, and wrinkle resistant. Also, this set has over 100,000 5-star reviews. Gosh!

    Promising review: "I've now been using this sheet set (in white) for a few months. I'm still equally in love with them. There has been no pilling yet. They also wash nicely and dry quickly. 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.

    37. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I had bought these sooner! I feel like I sleep so much better with them on my pillow. My pillow also feels like it's cooler. It's definitely not wrinkle free but that doesn't bother me because it's sooooo soft. I love the little pocket on the inside to keep your pillow tucked in. As far as cleaning them, it's a breeze. I tossed them in the washer with my sheets and washed them like normal. I just turned them inside out. Then I laid them flat to dry. They dried very quickly. I don't think I'll be able to go back to sleeping on a regular cotton pillowcase now." —Danielle Clay

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49 (two in a pack; available in 18 colors and multiple sizes).

    38. 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
    amazon.com

    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) is 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 $37.87 (available in three colors).

    39. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 multiple sizes and 19 colors).

    40. 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.
    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89+ (available in multiple colors and also in different sets).

    41. The Always Pan! Once you enjoy all its features, it'll prob be the one you reach for on the regular. It's designed to replace eight different cookware pieces and features a nonstick surface, venting top, mesh basket to steam, plus a spoon that fits snugly onto the handle.

    Our Place, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell tried the beloved Our Place pan. Peep her review ahead:

    "I have and love this pan! It just feels really nice to hold. The nesting spoon is absolutely genius, everything cooks evenly, and food just glides right off with minimal effort. If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! Also, Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also cofounded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls."

    42. 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 citrusy smell out.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 $39.99+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    43. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $72.95.

    44. 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.

    Amazon

    It's dishwasher safe, FDA approved, and it'll save you space those larger sifters usually take up. Also, I bought this thing and use it whenever I cook pasta. It works exactly as advertised. I really love that it's so easy to clean (by hand or dishwasher) and incredibly easy to store when it's not in use. It's definitely made my transitions smoother when I'm cooking pasta and need to go from the stove to the drain really quickly.

    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, 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

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in four colors).

    45. A door draft stopper to 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors including gray and brown).

    46. Cleaning packets that'll only require you to stick the packet into your garbage disposal and turn it on. Finally, an end to the odor climbing from your sink and making itself at home all over your kitchen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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
