1.A jar opener so nothing can separate you from a crunchy pickle or a spoonful of Nutella.
2.A set of 16 sheet masks for pampering your skin. Living alone = no one gets scared when you walk into the living room looking like Michael Myers.
3.A fake rock to hide your spare key so you can let yourself in after leaving your keys at home...for the third time this week.
4.A single serve coffee maker that'll brew you a mug in 90 seconds (or fill your 14-ounce travel mug in two-and-a-half minutes). No more wasting coffee or spending $6 on fancy bean water at a cafe! You wallet will thank you a ~latte~.
5.A Cuisinart one top induction cooktop so you don't have to dirty the stove while cooking for one. It's great for sous vide (because living alone is the best excuse to host fancy dinner parties) as its temperature tracking feature allows you to hold the water temperature to within a degree.
6.A mini pot that's deep enough for cooking ramen *and* is also nonstick so you can make a fried eggie with it. Multi-use cookware for the win!
7.A microwave veggie steamer for one so you don't have to boil a gigantic pot of water to steam like five broccoli florets.
8.A set of produce storage containers that'll keep your fruits and veggies fresh longer. No more buying a carton of strawbs only to watch them brown after like two days, because, I'm sorry, I cannot eat that many strawberries all at once, OK?
9.A sandwich bag holder for when you could really use another hand. No more spilling half the pasta sauce on the counter in a clumsy attempt to get it in the bag. We recommend these reusable silicone bags if you're trying to reduce your plastic use.
10.A set of silicone food huggers to keep your cut fruit from browning, especially that avocado half you were planning on using for tomorrow's avo toast.
11.A Zipuller so you don't have to contort your body to zip up your dress or try to finagle it with a paperclip or ribbon.
12.A Mighty Handle to do the heavy lifting after your weekly trip to the grocery store. The best part: no more trekking back and forth between your car and your apartment.
13.A jewelry helper so you can clip your bracelets without needing a third hand.
14.A 39-piece tool kit that'll help you with repairs around the house — so you can stop calling your dad and asking him to do it.
15.A smart light switch for anyone who hates walking into a dark house. You can control it from your phone and schedule the lights to turn on or off at specific times. This'll also come in clutch if you're the forgetful type that accidentally leaves the lights on in the mornings.
16.An alarm system that'll give you peace of mind when you're away from home. You'll get 24/7 monitoring so you always feel safe, especially if you live alone. It's compatible with Alexa so you can arm and disarm it with a simple voice command.
17.A portable door lock for added security or for doors that don't have locks. It jams the door so it's impossible for an intruder to force themselves in using the door handle.
18.A pack of motion sensor night lights that'll illuminate your house just enough that you're not bumping into things on your way to the kitchen for a midnight snack. And also, the dark is scary for some people, especially if your first thought when you hear a noise is that it's a serial killer. These will give you a little comfort and convince you that no one's waiting in your living room to get you.
19.A bug catcher vacuum to show those creepy-crawlies who's boss (spoiler: it's you). The BugZooka sucks up bugs with the press of a button, and it's a heck of a lot lighter than your bulky vacuum. This is key if you're attacking a fly boy who can hide before you even plug in your vacuum.
20.A folding step ladder so you can take advantage of the top shelves, even if you're only 5 feet tall.
21.A back scratcher to reach all your itches instead of twisting yourself into a pretzel.
22.An automatic pet feeder so your fur babies don't starve while you're out living your life. Sometimes you just want to stay out late with your friends eating garbage food, and that's OK.
23.A weighted drink holder to stabilize your bevvy and prevent spills. You don't live with your parents anymore, which means you can have drinks on the couch.
24.A Guzzle Buddy, which is basically an attachment for wine bottles that'll transform it into your own cup. This is good news because your regular cups won't hold a full bottle. Your Friday night in is about to get real fun.
