    1. A password journal, because making *and* remembering unique passwords is an albatross we all must live with, and this will make it SO much easier.

    2. An Amazon Echo Dot to turn your pad from a house to a ~smart home~. It'll be your little life assistant by helping you with your schedule, telling you the weather, playing music, and *so* much more!

    A round white Echo Dot ringed with a blue light sits on a wooden table with the phrase "Alexa, play study music." in a speech bubble below it.

    3. A Blueapple freshness extender that'll keep all of your produce fresh as can be until you're ready to actually use it. No more buying kale, so full of hope, only to let it wilt in the fridge in two days.

    4. A sleep eye mask with Bluetooth headphones so you can tear your eyes away from your laptop screen while also keeping yourself a little entertained as you drift asleep. Difficult to remember the last time I fell asleep without listening to a podcast.

    5. A pack of Sugru, a moldable glue that sets overnight into silicone rubber. Perfect for anyone who seems to be surrounded by things that are just a *little* bit broken constantly.

    6. A Nalgene bottle so you can finally leave disposable bottles back in 2019 where they belong and stay hydrated always. You'll be weirdly emotionally attached to your Nalgene in no time.

    7. A bag of Death Wish Coffee for finally getting you the JOLT of caffeine you crave without having to down a whole pot, as you've been known to do.

    8. A travel wallet so you can stay uncharacteristically organized while traveling. There's even a spot for a pen — always the most elusive when you need one to fill out customs forms.

    9. Blue light-blocking glasses that'll help reduce the eye strain you feel after being on the computer for eight hours during the work day. Ending the day without that fatigue and fogginess? Miraculous.

    10. A dog feeding tracker so you never have to think too hard about your most important chore — something you currently spend about five minutes considering every morning and night.

    11. A pair of bedsheet suspenders for anyone who is somehow ALWAYS entwined with their fitted sheets when they wake up. And there's the added bonus laugh after you dress up your mattress to cosplay as an old man.

    12. A bite-deterring nail polish so you can finally kick that horrid habit to the curb. This is your year!

    13. A Kindle Paperwhite with twice the storage as previous models — and it's ummmm WATERPROOF! At least the last Kindle you ruined while trying to read in the bath is in a better place now...

    14. A Two-Minute Mornings journal that'll prompt you to jot down a bit about your life every day. If it's difficult for you to even remember what you had for breakfast, maybe start keeping track of your own ~story~.

    15. A set of packing cubes to keep your suitcase organized and expertly packed during this year's travels. The people love them, I personally love them, and you will too.

    16. A slim external battery so you're never up a creek without a charge — one of the worst feelings of the modern world that you experience often, admit it.

    17. A new accordion file folder to inspire you to finally start keeping track of your important documents. It's 10 p.m. Do you know where your passport and birth certificate are?

    18. A sock-pairing device, because sweetie, I have never in my life seen you wear a matching pair of socks. If it's a fashion statement, you do you, but if it's because you're constantly losing them in the wash? Get this.

    19. A fabric defuzzer so you can basically give yourself a whole new wardrobe by salvaging sweaters, accessories, and *anything* that has fallen victim to pilling and shedding.

    20. A PopSocket to help you achieve an important goal: not cracking your phone screen. All. Year. Long.

    21. A purse organizer with a stunning 11 pockets for getting that bag under control. A door guy at a concert was once checking my purse and actually said "Pfft, just trash." Please learn from my embarrassing errors.

    22. A cableyoyo to help you manage your headphone cords. Listen, you've been struggling with them literally since they were invented. It may be time to seek help.

    23. A tufted futon, because you may not have a spare bedroom, but your pals still deserve somewhere sweet to crash. Not to mention your couch could use an upgrade.

    24. A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet, so you can use the weirdly large amount of energy you might have spent figuring out the dish status on more important things like "What's for dinner?"

    25. A mail-holder and key rack that will prevent you from losing track of your keys ever again *and* encourage you to open — or at least not outright misplace — your mail.

    26. A set of nesting bowls and measuring spoons so you can finally live the organized kitchen drawer life you've always dreamt of. Bowls not clattering onto your head every time you open a cabinet? Incredible.

    27. A hanger stacker for preventing your room from looking like a FULL mess. At least get these bbs out from under your feet. The rest can tbh wait.

    28. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray so you can get ready on time and look professional — I know, a novel concept.

    29. A Baggu to help you reduce the amount of plastic bags you use. This guy folds into a little pouch so you can stick it in your car/purse/anywhere and *actually* remember to bring it shopping.

    30. A Tile Mate with a replaceable battery so you can track any of your belongings and find them if they're lost. Yes, even the most valuable thing of all: a pet!

    31. A NYX setting spray for anyone whose face is perfectly made up at the beginning of the day and...melting off by the end. Your hard work deserves to be preserved.

    32. A stainless steel "soap" bar, because you BEEN smelling like garlic! Eradicate the smell from your hands without sacrificing it in your meals with this helpful hunk of metal.

    Look at you go — 100% together, no question.
