1. A pair of nail clippers to neatly catch your trimmings, instead of catapulting them across your bathroom.

2. An anti-friction stick that'll stop that irritating summer chafe right in its tracks.

3. Or a set of sexy lace bands to let you skip the sticks and powders AND walk in your dresses all day without a single complaint from your thighs.

4. A pair of charcoal deodorizers that can suck the stench and moisture out of your sweaty shoes after a long day on your feet.

5. A set of little plastic caps to prevent your high heels from sinking into grass, gravel, and dirt and make your shoes feel a little more stable on basically any surface.

6. One of these books, which will motivate you to clean out all the stuff you don't need β€” or at least the clothes you don't wear.

7. Or these thin velvet-flocked hangers that will make extra space in your closet and stop your tank tops from slipping off their hangers.

8. This translucent setting powder β€” layer it with your lipstick to keep it from slowly blotting off as you sip your coffee, eat a snack, and generally just enjoy your day.

9. And this setting spray that'll make the rest of your makeup last through even the sweatiest, most humid days of summer with just a spritz or two.

10. Some minty wipes so you can rub off any lingering red wine stains after enjoying a glass (or two) β€” or coffee stains after your morning cup β€” and keep your smile a bright white.

11. And a charcoal teeth whitener that'll help you get the brightest-white smile of your life (if that's what you want).

12. An easy-to-use automatic brush spinner to make it easy to actually clean and dry your makeup brushes on the reg.

14. A jar filled with apple cider vinegar and a drop of dish soap so you can trap all those pesky fruit flies.

15. Some sticky window strips that'll lure house flies with the light and trap them so they can't fly away. (Also, ew, but at least you know it works.)

16. A toilet-cleaning device β€” it'll work flush after flush, so you can skip the roommate/family battles over who scrubbed the toilet last.

17. A collapsible water bottle that's easy to carry around, if you're always thirsty but hate carrying around a bulky bottle.

18. A backup phone battery about the size of a deck of cards, so you know you're covered when your phone goes into low-power mode.

21. This cute bacon tray so you can cook one or two pieces at a time and still keep the rest of the package super fresh.

22. A useful slicing tool that'll basically pay for itself (if you eat lots of pineapple) because you can stop paying markup prices for the pre-cut packages.
