    1. An iRobot Roomba vacuum that can be ~automatically~ set to clean up your room throughout the day. The best part? It can be controlled via voice assistance, adjust its height when it detects carpet or hardwood, and it empties itself into its base.

    Promising review: "The suction on this bad boy is unreal! I love that it has two rollers instead of just one and it makes a huge difference compared to other brands and older models. I have a very hairy dog who sheds all the time. I run the Roomba on a schedule every other day and it’s a game changer for my floors (and my sanity). If I need an extra clean before company comes over, I just yell at my Alexa to have the Roomba to clean! I love how the tower empties the bin when it docks for charging. It also leaves perfectly straight lines on my rugs! I have zero regrets with this purchase!" —LeeAnn E. 

    Price: $449+  (available in five configurations)

    2. An aromatherapy diffuser to enhance your room with calming scents of lavender, eucalyptus, lemongrass, and more. Each scent is intended to evoke ~all~ the calming feels so it'll make a huuugee difference after a stressful day.

    Promising review: "This little guy makes a HUGE difference. He sits at my desk at work — which has the air quality of summers in Arizona. I keep him on the periodic mist and it lasts almost two full work days. I suffer from dry eyes due to a recent Lasik procedure and this has helped tremendously. 100% recommend." —Alexis Newman

    Price: $13.99+ (available in five colors)  

    3. A static cling decorative window film for adding some privacy to your windows. These are ideal if you live in close proximity to your neighbors or in an apartment.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this stuff. The summer months and sun shining on one side of my house makes the rooms and garage unbearable sometimes. I put this up on all the windows on that side of the house and it had made a huge difference. The garage is still warm but nowhere near what it used to be. The privacy part is great, too. We also live in a neighborhood where the houses are close together. I don’t like the idea that they can see in my house whenever I open my blinds. This also helps with that." —neil t ward

    Price: $6.49+ (available in eight sizes)

    4. A set of adjustable bamboo drawer organizers to turn your drawers into something a professional organizer would be proud of. Aside from its simple setup, it'll make your space look more put together and your utensils easier to find.

    Promising review: "This is one of those items that you don't realize you need until you have it. It made such a huge difference in my kitchen drawers... I'm now organized! This is going to be my go to gift for birthdays, Christmas, etc. Seriously, this is a must have! Worth every penny!" —MiAnn Townsend

    Price: $29.99

    5. A cooling pillow that'll make sleeping ~way~ more enjoyable than it already is. Yes, that's possible!

    Promising review: "Love my new pillow! I woke up with no neck pain for the first time in months and noticed a huge difference in just the first night." —Amy Austin

    Price: $37.99+ (available in three sizes) 

    6. A set of six fridge and freezer bins so you can turn your fridge into an organized oasis. It'll make finding eggs, cans, fruits/veggies, and more super simple to spot in your crowded fridge.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Made a huge difference in the appearance and organization of my refrigerator. Convenient drawer-like handle makes it easy to retrieve items in the rear of the fridge." —Bethzy

    Price: $35.99

    7. An anti-fatigue floor mat, because there's no reason to feel uncomfortable while cooking for all those holidays.

    Promising review: "As much time as I spend at the kitchen sink and counter, I really need something to take the edge off. The ComfiLife floor mat has made a huge difference in back and foot pain levels and fatigue. Although it is small, it is easy to just kick over to where I'm working anywhere in the kitchen so it can be under my feet. It is relatively easy to clean daily with wipes (when you can get them), and stashes readily aside the fridge while I clean the rest of the floor. Weekly or so cleaning with spray cleaner and rinse removes excess grime, and returns to new look once dry. With added lifetime warranty, this is one of the best investments I've made." —mysqd

    Price: $37.95+ (available in 13 colors and in three sizes)

    8. A turntable so you can easily organize your many, many spices. Not a fan of spices? Don't worry, you can also use it in your office or bathroom!

    Promising review: "I purchased these for the top two shelves in my refrigerator. It was always junky and hard to find anything. These fit perfectly, are very study, turn on a dime and have made a huge difference in how I view my refrigerator! It has made my life so much easier and I don't have to dig for things now. Wish I had purchased these long, long ago! I would highly recommend them." —Paula Brown

    Price: $14.53+ (available in three sizes and in three sets)

    9. A countertop makeup organizer to help us find everything incredibly easily. My favorite blush, eyeliner, or eyeshadow palette at easy access? Sign me up!

    Promising review: "Great way to organize makeup. Makes a HUGE difference as opposed to leave it all your counter. It’s sturdy and the drawers slide open and shut easily. I like that it’s stackable and you can add to it as you purchase more makeup." —errrca

    Price: $11.99+ (available in 16 colors and designs) 

    10. A stick-on shower caddy so everything in your bathroom has a designated spot. The days of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles all over the floor are over!

    Promising review: "This has made a huge difference in our shower organization. No more dropping shampoo bottles on your toes during a shower! Great quality, lots of room. Holds all our stuff!" —Evie Drae

    Price: $21.99+ (also available in silver)

    11. A countertop pan organizer, because we all know how annoying it is to dig through our arsenal of pots and pans to find the right one. The banging noises alone are reason to buy this!

    Promising review: "Definitely made a huge difference in space under the stove top." —Rebecca Brandenberg

    Price: $16.87

    12. A kitchen island for keeping your coffee station in reach at all times. Imagine not having your morning cup o' joe? *GASP!*

    Promising review: "This island has made such a huge difference in my kitchen. The drawer is perfect for my oven mitts and towels, the shelves are great for holding the 'sometimes' appliances, and the towel bar keeps my aprons close at hand. Much higher quality than I was expecting." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $136.89+ (available in six colors)

    13. A wood-topped kitchen cart, because you can always use more counter space. Plus, this one has wheels so if you happen to need it somewhere else, it can be moved.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had an open space in my kitchen that I needed to fill and decided a portable island would be just the thing! I researched for days to find the right one — the right one being well-reviewed, matching my aesthetic, ample storage, moveable, and in my price range. This kitchen cart really checked all my boxes. Comes with an Allen wrench to tighten the bolts. Directions are straightforward, not difficult to put together at all...took me just over an hour without power tools. It looked fantastic once put together — very classy and nice, sturdy material. Wheels are a godsend but I use the stoppers often when cooking and it holds in place well too. Wood top is very nice, too. I love that this has the extra leaf for when you need it, but otherwise it folds over — such a space saver! Storage was decent considering the dimensions — three deep drawers, and three large shelves (although the depth of shelves is a little to slight for larger pots or pans, but it wasn't a problem really, this is a space saver after all). All in all, excellent product. Very happy with everything from delivery, to the build, to the final result! Highly recommend! color and wood color exactly as pictured/described. This kitchen cart has made a huge difference in our cooking life! :)"sarah cruz

    Price: $265.99+ (also available in black)

    14. A stainless-steel cleaner and polish for keeping all your favorite kitchen surfaces — aka your appliances — clean and shiny. The plant based-formula cleans and protects to remove every pesky stain and fingerprint.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My stainless-steel fridge was a hot mess. I read mostly good reviews of this product, but some reviews that said it just spread the dirt around. So, first I cleaned off the major gunk with vinegar and baking soda. When I polished with this after cleaning, the fridge shined up really really well (except for the rust spots which I think are beyond repair). It truly does prevent fingerprints as well. Made a huge difference, a clean that will last, and smells great." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $15.95

    15. A grout brush that'll help keep your shower, door tracks, and other small spaces clean and sparkly. The small brush easily squeezes into those hard to reach spots. Consider these your new favorite gadget!

    Promising review: "Bought this to clean the grout in my kitchen floor that needed a lot of TLC. I always put off cleaning it because scrubbing it was tiring and took forever, but this thing made a huge difference!! It made cleaning so much easier. I didn’t have to put a lot of muscle behind it, just ran it over the grout lines and it worked great. The bristles didn’t break down or bend at all. And, it took me half the time it usually does to clean my floor with a regular scrub brush. I love this product and would highly recommend it!!" —Chelsea Pearce 

    Price: $17.99

    16. A garbage disposal foaming cleaner, because it needs to be cleaned. Just think about the gross things you discard down there. This handy cleaner expertly removes everything so no need to worry about anymore weird odors coming from it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We moved into a new house and noticed the disposer was kind of funky and not in a bell bottom kind of way. I didn’t want to replace it without trying something first so I got these. I credit them with saving the disposer! I noticed a huge difference after the first use and now with regular use my disposer is almost 100%! I highly recommend them!" —TJF

    Price: $3.98+ (available in two sizes)

    17. A set of two silicone counter gap covers for getting those super picky hard to reach between the counter spaces.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these after I dropped a green bean into the abyss of the gap between my counter and stove. I love these, they clean very easily, don't bulk up the counter and do the job they're supposed to do! They stick to the counter without leaving a residue. Gifted a set to my brother-in law as well, and he equally loves them." —Lexie

    Price: $9.95+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    18. A magnetic shelf to keep your spices at the ready and right near the stove. No need to run across the kitchen or dig through a messy cabinet to find them anymore.

    Promising review: "Oh my, this was definitely an excellent buy for sure. It is very sturdy, easily installed and blends nicely with the color of my stove. This shelf made a huge difference by allowing me to de-clutter and move my most used spices to make room for added storage in the cabinets. Highly recommend!" —Natalia

    Price: $39.99 (available in three sizes and four finishes)

    19. A handheld steamer for banishing all those incredibly annoying wrinkles. Seriously though, an iron and ironing board are ~way~ more work than this. You'll be wrinkle-free in no time!

    Promising review: "This little thing is so convenient. All you have to do is fill it up with some water and hit the power button. It heats up quickly and steams a couple of garments in no time! Don’t expect to do your whole wardrobe in one sitting, but great for before work or before going out in the evening! Perfect little accessory that makes a huge difference!" —Sara B.

    Price: $31.97

    20. A set of sheets because it's time to finally get some good sleep. Say goodbye to hot and sweaty nights, and hello to cool and calm Zzzs. Since they're 100% natural, they are perfect for those of us with sensitive skin, too!

    Promising review: "What a difference these make with night sweats. Both my husband and I sweat a lot and these sheets make a huge difference we no longer wake up in a pile of sweat. Who knew sheets would make all the difference?" —Quelly Bardol
    Price: $39.99+ (available in sizes Twin–California King and nine colors)

    21. A hanging cabinet organizer to avoid the avalanche of cutting boards and pans falling on you whenever you open the cabinet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this after seeing a BuzzFeed listing that mentioned its efficiency. Those reviews pale in comparison to how I feel about the cutting board holder. For so long my boards sat on my counter, taking up precious space for no good reason. Except maybe to mock me and my inability to find a proper home for them. As soon as I put the unit together (which was so easy, I mean legit legos are harder) and hung it inside my cabinet- I felt a huge difference. There was a lightness in the air and a beam of light shone through onto the counter space the boards previously occupied. This is such a great product and really brought my mind to ease. My life is happier with it. I feel like I can conquer the world and maybe more, like my bathroom! 10/10 would recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $15.47+ (available in packs of one and two)

    22. A Ninja air fryer with two baskets so you can ~finally~ cook two types of french fries at the same time (or, better yet, onion rings and french fries!). Can you imagine?

    Promising review: "The best air fryer! The food comes out beautiful, juicy, and with amazing crust. Having two baskets to cook makes a huge difference. Love it!!" —Leila Larenas

    Price: $159.99

    23. A set of drawer organizers, because your sock and underwear storage is super chaotic. This will not only help organize, but will also give everything a designated spot to make putting away laundry easier. It's a double win if you think about it.

    Promising review: "I love this! My dresser drawers look so neat and tidy now. This was very easy to use and makes a huge difference in how organized the drawers are now. I can find everything I am looking for! I bought the black one and the colors of my clothes seem to 'pop' against the black. It makes everything in the drawer look pretty." —Sunnee Day

    Price: $14.97 (available in seven colors)

    24. A set of outdoor string lights so your backyard can finally become the oasis it was meant to be. They'll add the perfect golden ambience and provide the perfect amount of light for all your family nighttime soirées.

    Promising review: "Love these lights! I hung them in my bedroom and they make a huge difference on the amount of brightness. The bulbs easily break, so be careful when taking them out of the package." —Amy Smith

    Price: $15.98 (available in three sizes and three colors) 

    25. And an electric space heater if you keep your home *so* cold during summer that you could actually use some extra warmth in your office.

    Promising review: "I’m am so pleased with this heater. My only regret is that I didn’t order it sooner. My classroom is freezing, so I put this on daily as needed and love how it has two different settings. It makes a huge difference. My classroom is so comfortable now!! 😊" —Kelly Rock

    Price: $26.99 (available in two colors)
