    54 Things To Help Solve 2020 Problems Before They Even Start

    You won't know why you didn't have this stuff earlier. It's all just that good.

    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 car trunk organizer so you no longer have to wade through a pile of your stuff just to get to the ~one~ thing you need in your trunk.

    This is also your reminder to actually fill your trunk up with practical things your mother would be proud of you for having like car cleaners, spare air freshener, paper towels, jumper cables, a change of clothes, etc.

    Promising review: "My wife’s car would be a total pigpen without these. The first one was so nice, I got her a second one. They’re solid and tough and make grocery shopping so much nicer because they hold and contain everything so well." —Mitch

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in three colors).

    2. A proper raincoat so soggy days won't impede on your street style icon goals. It's designed like a regular longline jacket but will keep you dry and fine.,

    Promising review: "I have to walk my dog twice a day in good and bad weather. I bought this raincoat in the middle of a hot, rainy summer so I didn't want it to make me too warm. It is perfect. It is very lightweight and keeps the rain off but I don't get all sweaty. I bought it in an extra-large size (even though I would normally wear a medium or large) so that I can wear it over bulky sweaters once cooler weather sets in. I think it will work out great. It is larger but doesn't look sloppy. I especially like the stretchy cuffs that keep the rain out of the sleeves. Double fabric on the hood is another nice feature. All in all, it seems well made and I hope to wear it for a long time." —Jeloise

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 17 styles).

    3. A lint roller so you can keep the dog hair and dust in check. Lint rollers are definitely one of those things you never have, end up needing, promise yourself you'll get, and then never do. So this is your reminder: Get it now. Get two — one for home and one for work so you stop looking like you've been rolling around in pet hair.


    This lint roller comes with extra stickies! Snagging a lint roller with additional stickies is also the perfect way to make sure you purchase it ONCE and never have to buy it again.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available with four additional sticky rolls).

    4. A heavy-duty car trash bag so your car can stop resembling the messy room you kept in grade school when you still lived with your parents.


    This car trash can also come with a free pack of 10 liners. Once you're done with the free liners, you can re-up with a fresh pack of liners from the same brand which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It has a thick protective plastic sewed on the inside so cleaning up spills is super easy. Plus, it came with a roll of plastic garbage bags that fit perfectly inside. It's a heavy-duty car trash bag and very good quality. I was honestly expecting something thin and flimsy. That is not what I got at all. It holds quite a bit of trash. I'm a mother of two and car junk adds up really fast. So glad I bought this because it has come in handy." —BonBon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in two sizes and two quantity options) and a 40-count pack of liners for $9.99.

    5. Avarelle Acne Absorbing Patches to help shrink pimples as soon as they appear. This is a godsend that'll prevent you from getting too handsy with the pimples, popping them, and then spreading that icky bacteria.

    The patches are made of hydrocolloid with a hint of tea tree oil that's meant to minimize redness, decrease the size of the overall acne spot, and shorten the time frame of a blemish.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems — a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked that has been a bump for about three weeks now. I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get them from Amazon for $8.50 (available in a 40-count pack).

    6. A silverware sorter so you can finally get all the drawer space back that you've been wasting.


    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —Mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles and two colors).

    7. Antibacterial sex toy cleaner because owning that fun self-care gadget so you don't have any, er, problems down yonder due to an unclean toy. This cleaner is alcohol-, glycerin-, and paraben-free.


    By the way, this sex toy cleaner is safe for use on silicone, latex, and rubber.

    Promising review: "I recently bought a rubber toy for the first time and could not get rid of that new rubber smell, no matter how many times I washed it. This toy cleaner is incredible! I love the fresh scent. I was worried about it being overpowering like other people claimed but it's not. It's light and fresh. Also, it does have suds when you spray it on your toy so you know you are getting a good clean. I just gave it a few sprays, rubbed it down a little, and rinsed with warm water. The horrible rubber smell is GONE! Now I can enjoy my new toy." —Kit1989

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    8. Affresh dishwasher tablets that'll remove odor-causing residue so your dishes actually come out clean. These trusty tablets can be tossed in the machine while it's empty or full.

    Because yup, adulting means you get the pleasure of washing the dishes and the machine too!

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get them from Amazon for $3.71 (available in a six-pack).

    9. A dishwasher magnet so you can get ahead of the "Are they clean or are they not?" conversation in your household and prevent dirty dishes from making their way back into your cabinets.


    It's time you settled this thing once and for all! If you have kids, this is also a cute way to get them to be more on top of their chores, especially if they take turns loading the dishwasher during the week.

    Promising review: "I got this a year ago and have used it consistently. It stays in place and does not spin when I open and close the door. It has a strong magnet on it. It has never fallen off the dishwasher, and you can tell from a distance whether the dishes are dirty or clean unless you forget to turn it, of course." —Melanie DiBona

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    10. A two-sided tea stand to organize your packets so you can always find ~exactly~ what you want when you want it. This stand holds 100 tea bags and features 12 slots.

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But, as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. Headrest hooks that'll ensure your purse and other bags stay put as you (whoops!) speed your way to work and other gotta-be-there-soon places. This is great for helping you locate bags easily while you're at the wheel but also for preventing them from falling over and dumping the contents all over your floor.


    Promising review: "What a great idea! This is the handiest contraption ever. You simply raise your headrest about 1/2" and clip this to the headrest's post. It is firm and secure. My handbag's often heavy and this doesn't make it tilt at all. I gave one to my daughter who uses it in her car, too. She loves it as her car doesn't have much floor space as her center console is wide and she often has passengers. Great value for something so useful!" —Just My Opinion

    Get a set of two on Amazon for $7.95 (available in black and beige).

    12. Jeffrey Campbell Hurricane Waterproof Boots so when it rains, you can slip into these cuties without having to compromise your fly outfit with those regular rubber clunkers. Yep, this is the grownup way to splash in puddles when it pours.


    New boots, who dis?

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59.95 (available in sizes 6-10; seven colors) or if you need that fast Prime shipping, get 'em on Amazon for $60 (available in black; sizes 8-10; Amazon Prime two-day shipping).

    13. A golden sloth hook so you can store your keys in a designated, easy-to-spot place and skip over that panic-filled morning search just before you have to leave out. Also, this hook makes for ADORABLE decor and is strong enough to hold light bags, scarves, and more.

    Urban Outfitters / Via Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is so cute. I gave it to a friend and she used it to hang a plant. It's bigger than it looks in the picture but is a perfect size I think!" —Kd1988

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $8.

    14. A hanger stacker that'll turn laundry day into such a quick breeze because be honest, washing clothes is the easy part. Not leaving your clean clothes unsorted on the bed for three days is what you need more support with. 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 $18.34 (available in six quantity selections).

    15. A deep pocket sheets set to end all the worries about a corner or two popping up while you're catching ZZZs. These sheets fit mattresses up to 24 inches deep (!!!) and come with four pillowcases.


    Promising review: "Finally, I found a sheet set for my 18-inch mattress that really does fit. I love that I am not struggling to get the last corner on. These sheets are very soft and cool to the touch. I ordered the beige and the color matches what the website shows. Delivery was fast and the price is great. I will be ordering a couple more sets for under what some places charge for one set." —Vic

    Get it from Amazon for $34.45+ (available in 19 colors and sizes ranging from twin to California king).

    16. A bag-organizing insert for anyone who's as tired of digging into their black hole of a purse as I am and needs to literally get their stuff together, immediately. The insert features one large pocket, four small pockets, two zipper pockets, and six mesh pockets that'll ensure that you and I can ~finally~ find what we're looking for without feeling like Mary Poppins., Amazon

    Promising review: "This bag has revolutionized my life! As a professional woman who needs to stay organized, my purse was my downfall. All of my adult life, I have fumbled to find things on the bottom of my handbag no matter what the size. I have even tried carrying a flashlight to find things but I could never find the flashlight. Do I have a pen? It's got to be here somewhere. Paper? Yes, I think I have paper. Well, it's crumpled, but it's paper. Safety pins? Maybe, but it will take an hour to sort through everything else to find them. Maybe if I dump everything out on the counter, it won't take so long... NOW, I am the picture of efficiency. Wallet, pens, paper, cords, phone, keys, gum, safety pins, comb, ID badge, mouthwash, lipstick, cold capsules, and more are all tucked nicely into this travel bag which easily slips in and out of any purse I choose to carry. I purchased the small and medium-size and they fit perfectly inside my purses. The organizer holds a ton of stuff and everything is standing up in full view. Nothing is laying on the bottom of my purse. It has completely changed everything. I am DELIGHTED with this purchase!" —Janis Creason

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-L).

    17. Satin pillowcases 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.

    Two pink satin pillowcases.

    Promising review: "They are smooth, soft, and have a satin look and feel. The zipper closure seems strong enough. The color is true to the picture. There's no pilling nuisance collecting on them and they fit my king size pillows perfectly. The pillowcases do not hold stains. A soapy cloth or Clorox wipes easily gets rid of stain spots. My dog's hair does not cling to the material. I haven't cleaned them in my washing machine yet but when I do I'll be sure to add fabric softener to keep them soft. So far, I am very happy with these pillowcases and feel that my little bit of money was well spent." —Durr Adoya

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (two in a pack; available in 17 colors).

    18. A sunrise alarm clock to help you wake up on the right side of the bed every single day. The clock has a sunrise stimulation wake-up setting that gradually increases its light similar to a real morning sunrise so you wake up naturally instead of being jolted by a janky alarm sound. It also works 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.

    Storytime! My brother and I used to sleep upstairs and my mom's master bedroom was downstairs. She used to wake us up for school by banging on the staircase banister like the cops because she didn't feel like walking up the steps each morning. I'll probably never be a morning person because of it and this clock is sitting in my Amazon cart because, yeah, the struggle is ~still~ real and I need some fake-sun help.

    Promising review: "The light helped me tremendously with waking up and feeling energized. Waking up slowly to natural sounds like waves or birds chirping has made getting up easier. I love how the light begins to increase like the sunrise. It feels much less stressful waking up gradually versus the harsh shrill of my cell phone alarm. My favorite feature is the nightlight. It is a warm orange glow that I enjoy falling asleep to. It is very calming and warm. The setup was quick and easy enough that I could have done it with my eyes closed. The wake-up clock has a sleek modern look and fits right into my bedroom without looking out of place." —Justin Hildreth

    Get it from Amazon for $39.89.

    19. A Book of the Month subscription so bookworms will never have to feel that empty feeling that comes when you've wrapped up a book, loved it to pieces, and then realize you have nothing else to read. Book of the Month will bring the books straight to your door and send you five new books every month. You get to keep and pay for your faves.

    Instagram / Book of the Month

    You'll even be able to score some early releases through Book of the Month.

    Subscribe at Book of the Month for $14.99 per month — and add any extra books on for $9.99 each!

    20. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes so you never have to worry about ~forgetting~ to feed your plants again. Translation: You'll complete the final phase of actually becoming your mother. Just pop these sticks into the soil of your hungry plants and watch them flourish!


    The spikes will feed each plant for up to two months.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering so I put a few of these spikes in the pot. There are directions on the back of package for quantity and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it! My African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also. I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $7.39+ (available in single and bulk quantities).

    21. A moon lamp for anyone who shamelessly still needs a night light but wants a way more cool-looking one. This light resembles an actual factual moon that'll give you the comforting room glow you love in a really cute, grownup way.


    The moonlight changes between two colors (white and yellow) with a touch and runs via a rechargeable battery. 'Nother fun fact: This cool light was made via a 3D printer!

    Promising review: "This was meant to be a birthday present for someone else but I loved it so much, I just kept it for me! It's a perfect night light to keep beside your bed or just to create a cozy atmosphere! The light is very lightweight and easy to charge. I love the fact that you can increase or decrease the intensity of the brightness to your liking. This is the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one! I got the smallest one but I bet the bigger ones are equally beautiful!" —Dhanya

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes 3.5"-7.1").

    22. Light-dimming stickers that'll prevent the blinking lights on all of your electronics from keeping you awake at night now that you're committed to getting every single drop of sleep you deserve. Also, yes, you can use it to cover up the camera on your laptop if you're like me and think the government is probably, definitely watching your every move.


    FYI: 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 $6.49.

    23. A kitchen knife sharpener so you can refresh your knives as they dull over time and do the most adult thing of adult things to do which is, duh, to save some MONAYYYYYY.


    Promising review: "...For five and a half dollars, I thought it would be cheaper if I could save her old knives rather than buying new $25 knives for [my mother]. She was so impressed with the results that she pulled out of her retired paring knives from a junk drawer — a filet knife and a huge 12-inch American-made chef's knife that was about 30 years old — and asked me to sharpen them. I was able to bring back a cutting edge on all of them! Maybe not as sharp as new but plenty sharp for use in the kitchen..." —Rick T.

    Get the original black version from Amazon for $5.99 OR the newer model for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    24. Divider sticky notes to better organize the thoughts you jot down in your journal, planner, or diary. You could also use them to take notes and bookmark pages in textbooks without damaging the books by actually writing and/or highlighting in them.


    You get 60 sticky notes in one pack.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these dividers! I use them in my planner and textbooks as reminders on materials and for a breakdown of what bills are due each week at a glance. I will definitely purchase again." —King_savage17

    Get it from Amazon for $5.67.

    25. A handmade eyeglasses holder because you've been doing the I-can't-find-my-glasses routine for way too long. Now that you're all growed up and trying to do things a lil' differently, you'll minimize the lost spectacles dilemma by perching them on this polished wooden sniffer.

    One reviewer even shared that he uses this stand to keep up with his glasses and also his wedding ring.

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It sits on his nightstand and he uses it regularly. He doesn't lose his glasses as much. I've also noticed that he doesn't fall asleep with them on his face or somewhere in bed since he started using this. I like it because it saves me the aggravation of listening to my husband look for his glasses. It's cute yet functional." —Lady Tauber

    Get it from Amazon for $5.79+ (available in seven sculpture styles).

    26. A tote and wristlet set that'll also give you two bags in one since you can reverse the tote any time you want to show off another color. The bag has a straightforward design and neutral colors so you'll never be without a bag that'll match every outfit in your wardrobe.


    The bag comes with a wristlet that you can use alone as a mini clutch or as a wallet.

    Promising review: "I bought this bag last year in camel and black, and have waited to see how it held up before reviewing. I’ve had it for 10 months now and have used it daily, and as a carry-on on fights. I’ve loaded it down (overloaded, to be honest) with so many items that it was hard for me to carry — but not for this bag to handle! It is such an impressive bag! I wasn’t sure when I read 'high quality synthetic vegan leather' but let me assure you – it is wonderful. Every part of the bag looks and feels like soft leather. I believe it looks even better the more it’s used! I receive compliments on it all the time and have had no issues with the material or even stitching (and I am not easy on my bags or purses). I’ve used a leather cleaner on it once, with very nice results." —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in seven reversible color options).

    27. Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes that are crazy comfortable for working out and wearing allllllllll the way to the event before switching into your heels at the very last possible minute. Yeah, you're that age and it's completely, totally fine. No more excruciating pain in the name of looking cute.

    I own a black pair of these and they're seriously one of the comfiest friggin' sneakers I've ever worn (the other is a pair of New Balances) in my 28 years of life. The "Cloudfoam" insole really does make it feel like your feet are walking on clouds. I thought that feeling might go away after several months of wear but the sneakers remain fluffy and relaxing. The sneakers were so comfortable that I started wearing them to the gym, to work, and even matching them with cute dresses for going-out looks. You'll probably want to order two pairs of these babies so you don't wear out a single pair after you fall in love. I bought my mom a pair as well.

    Get them from Amazon for $40.77+ (available in 5-11 and four styles).

    28. A three-piece produce-saving container set that'll make your fruits and veggies last much longer in the fridge. No more spending your hard-earned duckets on fruit just for it to go bad before you actually get to enjoy it.

    Buzzfeed / Natalie Brown

    BuzzFeed editor Natalie Brown gave the produce-saving containers a go and was wowed by the results after 10 days of storage!

    "On March 5, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store... 10 days later, the berry I left in the original container was dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. (I'm not eating the leaves, but still.) But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one! Not that I wouldn't eat the dehydrated one if that was my only option, but given the choice? I'll take a fresh strawberry every day!"

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99. Also, read the full review on these dang-near magical dishes in the These Miracle Plastic Containers Keep Berries Day-One Fresh For Almost 2 Weeks post!

    29. Silicone baking mat sheets so throwing cookies, rolls, and other tasty things into the oven can be a quick, non-messy situation your belly will be so grateful for. There will be more tasty morsels going into your mouth and less of it boiling over and sticking to the bottom of the pan, or worse, the bottom of your oven.


    They're safe for up to 480 degrees and can be used inside of pans OR underneath them in the oven to catch anything that boils over. Mess-free cooking = GOALS, ya'll.

    Promising review: "These baking mats are absolutely fantastic. The quality is superb, and SUCH a good price. I use them for just about everything I put in the oven from oven pizzas to cookies. You name it! I also love that besides food sliding easily off the non-stick surface, that they help protect all my baking sheets and such. It’s also super handy to just throw them in the top shelf of the dishwasher or even just wipe clean... I’ve had these mats and used them almost daily for almost a year now. They still look brand new and I have had no problems with staining, melting, or the mats becoming worn. When using them, I cook most items at 375 degrees but have used them at up to 425 degrees several times with no issues so far... These things are fantastic and have paid for themselves many times over with the superior non-stick surface, ease of clean up, and the cost of parchment paper and or/aluminum foil I used prior to discovering these." —Jezzhani

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three colors and three quantities).

    30. Reusable grocery bags that'll actually hold up under the weight of your groceries without tearing to shreds and sending your stuff flying all over the grocery store floor or parking lot. These strong but lightweight bags are made of 100% nylon that'll hold up to 30 pounds worth of stuff and you can fold them up into tiny space-saving pouches when you're not using them. They're also rip-resistant and come in a ton of colors so you get to tote your groceries (and save the planet with a plastic-free outing) in style.


    These reusable bags are also made of recycled fabric so you get a few extra planet-saving points with this one!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bag and have now purchased some more for myself and friends. Not only are the designs very cute and trendy, but these also take up zero room in your purse/bag so you can always have it with you and don't have to try and remember to grab your reusable bags from home or car every shopping trip. They're very sturdy. I have been able to carry at least two regular bags worth of groceries in this, including heavy items like a gallon of milk. When you're done, it's very easy to fold back up and pop into its little case." —Britt

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 28 designs as well as a three-pack).

    31. A car sauce holder so you can stop trying to knee-finesse your car while you gobble up chicken nuggets. No more swerving in the name of dunking.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention ever! I’m a sauce queen and this allows me to have sauce in my car without wasting it! Whoever invented this knows my love language!" —Quintana

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    32. Schick Silk Touch-Up Dermaplaning Tools that'll remove peach fuzz, help shape brows, and remove dead skin cells that interfere with your smooth skin goals with a simple, careful flick of your wrist.


    Promising review: "These little guys work perfectly for dermaplaning! I used one the other night after I washed and applied toner to my face. It’s been a couple of days and my skin still feels baby soft. I didn’t have any sort of reaction or anything to the exfoliation which was nice because I have severe cystic acne. My makeup goes on so smoothly and I finally have that glowing look I’ve been trying to get! I will definitely be buying these again." —Hannah Jean

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in a three-pack and nine-pack).

    33. A maze feeder that'll make mealtime way more fun and stimulating for your pets and force them to slow the heck down instead of practically inhaling the food and risking choking.


    Promising Review: "I have an eighty-pound golden retriever and he loves this bowl. We feed him up to two cups and have never had an issue with fitting it all in the bowl. I know some people wrote that their dog knocks it over but I've never had that issue. It made his eating time go from 30 seconds to about two to three minutes." —Victoria

    Promising review: "It sounds silly but this little guy is truly a game-changer. I have been using the top of the can to strain the water out of my tuna for years. I never thought of ever considering an alternative until I came across this on Amazon. It really is a time-saver and very convenient. It fits perfectly nice and snug in five-ounce tuna cans. The strainer is easy to clean and seems pretty durable as well. Just rinse off with water and pat dry." —studiotime

    Promising review: "I just adopted my beagle about eight months ago and have been struggling with cutting his nails. He hated it, I hated it. I could not bring myself to spend $10 for someone to do something that I had the tools for. So my dog suffered, I suffered...for eight months until I decided to just give up because they were getting ridiculously long and I took him to Petsmart. I figured that I would watch Petsmart cut his nails two or three times and waste $30 watching them do it until I learned it. Then I discovered that they grind nails. Whoaaaa! I was like, 'what is a grinder?' The Petsmart lady pulled this nifty little gadget out of her dog nail supply bucket and I took pictures of it. It was really easy to find here on Amazon. I think hers was the 7700 but this one is $20 cheaper. I have been using it for several weeks and cutting his nails is actually kind of fun now. He is a bit scared of it, but I think he will get used to it. It smooths out his nails and files them away. I don't think I'm ever going to have to go back to the nail scissor with this thing. It has also held on one charge for several weeks, I have yet to recharge. INCREDIBLE! The cat does not like the sound. Otherwise, I would have used it on the cat as well." —Princess

    36. A Crock-Pot food warmer to make sure you enjoy hot food from home even when you're super busy and don't even want to leave your workspace for lunch. No more hot food going cold and getting you all hangry.,

It has a handle that'll make toting it super easy, a spill-free lid, a cool-touch exterior so you don't have to worry about being burned, and integrated cord storage so you can plug it up and then put it away when you need to.

    Promising review: "After growing tired of having semi-hot or having to wait forever on the microwave at work, I decided to purchase this. It is wonderful. I plug it in about an hour before I have to eat lunch and my food is perfectly warmed. As a teacher, I get tired of turkey sandwiches or trying to wolf down what's supposed to be a hot lunch but isn't for whatever reason. One of the best things about this warmer is that I don't have to worry about microwave explosions or having to clean up after someone else. It's great for anyone who wants a hot lunch every once in a while and is crunched for time." —Danielle Williams

    It's also dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "If you eat avocado with any regularity, then you need this. I put half an avo in my morning smoothie and was blowing through Saran Wrap trying to save the other half for the next day. The avo saver makes it super quick and easy to store leftover avo and keeps it green for several days. It also makes transporting a half of an avocado much easier. It may seem gimmicky but you'll be so glad you purchased it!" —K. Scott

    Promising review: "Bought this for my wife as she is a French fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was a 'nice' or 'OK' novelty item for the truck. You would have thought it was the Hope Diamond. We immediately had to go to Sonic and try it out and it worked well. I am her hero. Always have been but it is refreshing to watch such happiness." —AZPerk3

    Promising review: "This is absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy Goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... Nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. He had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... He eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    46. A Vivienne Sabó Cabaret Première mascara designed to lengthen your lashes AND curl them! You can nix your lash curler ~and~ the need to learn how to apply lashes!

    Instagram / Vivienne Sabó,

    Promising review: "I never write reviews for things but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all and makes your lashes look super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all, this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!" —Sophie Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    47. A full-body bath pillow complete with a bath sponge to 100% encourage you to actually park yourself in the tub, enjoy some you-time, and relax for once. This life-saver is machine-washable. It also has 3D cushioning that dries quickly so mold won't mess up the vibes.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! I have whiplash and the pillow provides nice support for my neck while the deluxe model mat provides a 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 salt or whatever and relax away!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available with or without a pillow).

    48. A dual-ended eyeliner stamp because cheating your way to a FLAWLESS winged eyeliner look is honestly goals. No seriously, you're gonna save so much time. It has a wing stamp on one end and a traditional felt tip on the other. No more trial, error, and smudging away product since you can get it right on the first try with this stamp., Amazon

    One scroll through the photos in the Amazon reviews of this product will show perfect winged eye after perfect winged eye!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, and more! So when I saw this I thought, 'Meh, why not give it a shot?' It's not like my hopes were high since nothing else has worked as it should. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out. To my surprise, I put the left cat-eye on first and it was perfect aside from needing to connect it to my current liner. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye... Again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE 2 MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I love that it has two ends as well, one with the stamp and one with a thin tip so you can connect your liner and cat-eye. I can now do a cat-eye EVERY day and look/feel like a baddie and everyone can think I spend hours doing my make-up in the morning." —LadyMeow

    49. The Spontuneous game for days when you and the squad get bored and want to have some sing-a-long fun. This game requires one player to choose a word while the others think of a song with that word in the lyrics. Note: You do not have to have the voice of an angel. In fact, it'll make for a much funnier experience if you sound as terrible as possible., Amazon

    Promising review: "The game brought laughs and tears running down our cheeks as the whole table would break out into a song. This game is fun for any family who wants to have a good time, is willing to laugh at each other, and can think fast on their toes. The rules are pretty simple and the turns around the table go fast. We had to think of about nine trigger words each and play with about nine people as well. The game works in both partners and individuals. I would recommend anyone play the game and take it to every party. Introverts do have a hard time playing when there are a lot of extroverts who will shout and yell the lyrics right over the top of someone quiet. Make sure you have a team spirit in mind and remember that the game is supposed to be fun for everyone, and you won't regret purchasing this game." —Canary

    50. Wood polish and conditioner to keep even the most high-traffic wood surfaces in your house looking 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 five-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

    51. A tub drainer to catch all the hair that would normally pile up in your drain. It'll also be easy (and yea, kinda disgusting) to pluck out and clean when needed. And you'll always be able to prevent a clogged drain before it happens.

    And in case you were wondering, one reviewer did show and share that YES, it'll catch curls too!

    Promising review: "Before using the Tubshroom, I used a flat hair catcher on my tub/shower drain and cleaning it was gross. This one really does the job nicely. When you lift it from the drain, the hair (absent gunk since only hair remains) is caught by the lip. Hence, you can easily remove hair with a tissue. Also, since there are plenty of little drainage holes, it doesn't get moldy compared to a flat hair catcher that covers the top of the drain. The material is soft and easily pliable, thus, fits drain and catches all hair. It's well worth the cost compared to hiring a professional drain cleaner." —Dr. SG

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors).

    52. OR, a FlexiSnake to dig out all the hair that's been having camp meetings in your drain. It'll be a nasty process, but you'll be so happy when water's back to running down your sink like a dream.

    Promising review: "I was in denial about what was clogging my shower drain. Some idiot grouted the grate on top of the drain leaving me at a loss with figuring out how to unclog it. I've tried the pouring stuff down the drain, the hot water, and the leaving it overnight. I still got a shower-foot-bath until I found this. I worked up so much hair out of my drain. It's almost embarrassing to admit. But this is awesome. I would recommend it to friends." —Elisa

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28+ (available in two colors).

    53. A cooktop cleaning kit so you can treat yourself to a brand new stove without actually having to spend the hundreds of dollars it usually costs to snag one. The kit comes with a 10-ounce bottle of Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    Promising review: "I tried EVERYTHING for two years to get the ring of baked-on grime off of our stovetop. Nothing worked. I figured I’d give this product a go since the kit was just $10. IT’S AMAZING. A little scrape with the razor and a few scrubs with the cleaner and pad. BOOM! Nasty rings around the burners are GONE!" —OperaDiva

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in two kit options)

    54. A portable door lock to give you extra security whenever you're sleeping anywhere that isn't your personal abode. It'll come in super handy for anyone who frequents Airbnb's or hostels and sleeps better knowing things are way more secure.


    Promising review: "I am so happy I discovered this product in Amazon. I live in a rented room where there is no lock and I didn't want to request the owner to drill the lock for me. So, this product has been a savior for me. I can finally sleep in peace without having to worry about anyone trying to open the door when I am inside the room. It is super simple to use and also comes with a good manual. It also came with a small red pouch so I am definitely planning to carry it during my travels and use it at hotels or motels. I am very happy with this purchase." —Anzy
