    1. A handy checklist that will hold you accountable for completing tasks. Hey, if it takes a pushy piece of paper to get you through the day, I won't question it.


    Promising review: "These are perfect for me to jot down to-do items as I think of them. Digital to-do lists are great, but they're easy to minimize or get hidden behind other windows I have open. I keep a pad of the Action Items! on my desk, kinda in my way, so the list is always present and I can add or check things off as i go. And, yes, I am one of those people who might possibly write down something I accomplished just so I could cross it off the list." β€”BWall

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50 (available in 15 styles).

    2. A pair of shoe stretchers, because you've probably had to take off your shoes *in public* due to gnarly break-in blisters more times than you'd like to admit. For your own good and that of everyone else, let's tackle that issue.,

    The set comes with two stretchers that can adjust shoes both length- and width-wise. They also come with removable pieces you can attach to the stretcher if you have bunions you'd like to account for! Just put the stretchers into to the shoes you need to break in, and let them sit for 24–48 hours.

    Promising review: "I am now happily torturing all the shoes that tortured me! BWAHAHAHAHA! Seriously, these are awesome. I love to flex my shoes until they are as comfy as needed. I wear mostly high heels, so these are greatly appreciated. And I like that attachments so you can make them like your own feet (mine have a couple of bumps and such, haha)." β€”SuzieQ

    Get a pair from Amazon for $15.98 (available in three sizes).

    3. An underwear subscription so you can stave off the dreaded laundry day without having to go commando just a liiiittle bit longer.

    What you get: A monthly pair of underwear for you *or* you and a partner. Pick from eight styles, and a myriad of fun colors and patterns. Available in men's and women's sizes XS–2XL.

    Get it from MeUndies for $14+ for one pair/month or $30 for two matching pairs/month.

    4. A cute little trash can to keep in your room so you have no excuse for letting those clothing tags, receipts, and gum wrappers pile up on your dresser.


    Promising review: "Stylish, minimalist trash can. It's amazing how hard it is to find a trash can that isn't an eyesore. This one looks nice and doesn't take up much space." β€”Megan Rolerkite

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50+ (available in three colors).

    5. Some very ~aesthetically pleasing~ hand sanitizer if you find that your hands are somehow ALWAYS covered in a mysterious substance.


    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in eight scents).

    6. A set of microfiber glasses cleaning cloths, because if you continue to throw your glasses about carelessly, you're gonna need a great way to clean them. I'm sorry I have to be the one to tell you this, but the bottom of your T-shirt is NOT gonna get those smudges off.


    Promising review: "I'm not one to write reviews so quickly after receiving things, but I have to comment on these cloths! I usually dislike microfiber cloths β€” I know they are supposedly great for cleaning your glasses and screens, but every single microfiber cloth I've ever used has left unbearable streak marks on every surface, whether used by itself or with a cleaning product. When I opened these cloths, I immediately used one to clean my glasses that I hadn't been able to clean properly all day, and my glasses came out streak-free and beautiful! Love these. I was hesitant to spend so much on cloths I was pretty sure I wouldn't like, but these blew me away! Most definitely will buy again." β€”Stephanie Hollander

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $5.49.

    7. A set of charcoal air purifying bags to place anywhere that just smells...funky. Closets, cars, gym bags, you name it! Get rid of the stank without spritzing a headache-inducing freshener all over the place.

    Besides soaking up stink, charcoal is also said to help prevent mold, mildew, and air-borne pathogens. To recharge the bags, simply place them in the sun for about an hour.

    Promising review: "These are wonderful. I can’t say enough good things. We live in an older house, and travel a lot, and these save the day. Everything used to smell musty when we returned, but not any more! It also sucked up some fish odor after an ill-advised dinner choice. I recommend these to everyone." β€”ms. m

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.95.

    8. A pan and lid organizer that can be used both horizontally and vertically so you never again get crushed by the avalanche of cookware that usually pours out of your cabinets. How many times has that made you start crying? A thousand? More?


    The rack holds five pans vertically and four pans horizontally.

    Promising review: "This rack is perfect. I put my largest skillet on the bottom and smallest at the top. I did not secure the rack with the screws that came with it so I can easily move it if I move my pots and pans area. Even without securing it to the cabinet, it works perfectly and doesn't shift when I remove a pan. I also appreciate the color: others I have seen are shiny silver, which I did not want. I will be buying another one of these for our cabin. I have already recommended this rack to friends." β€”CustomerO

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87.

    9. A washable shower curtain liner, because the "buy a new plastic one every five years and just shower next to a mildewy nightmare" method hasn't really been working out for you.

    The liner is machine washable for maximum cleanliness!

    Promising review: "This is the way to go if you've had it with trying to find the seemingly non-existent mildew-proof plastic liner. These are sheer enough to let a fair amount of light through and it took eight months for any mildew to start forming in a shower where before I'd be replacing the liner every three months. The liner launders perfectly (used gentle cycle and extra low heat) so unless it's used roughly I can see it remaining in good shape through a number of wash cycles." β€”A. Quint

    Get it from Amazon for $8.80 (available in six colors and six fabrics).

    10. A foldable, reusable bag so you can always have one on you instead of having to remember to grab it before heading to the store. We both know that will literally never happen.

    Promising review: "This is my second Baggu purchase. I have previously purchased one other standard nylon Baggu as well as the baby Baggu, which I frequently use to carry my lunch or for small shopping errands. I love that the Baggu of any size is so lightweight and can be folded up neatly into a pouch to drop into a purse, trunk, wherever. I keep one in my handbag, office desk drawer and car, and have found it much easier to avoid unnecessary usage of plastic shopping bags. It also takes up a lot less space than my other reusable bags, which makes storing them convenient and easy. Finally, the best part is that the Baggu is washable, which means no worrying about getting it dirty over time. Overall, this has been a great product that I would recommend to anyone looking to reduce plastic bag usage with a much more reliable and convenient carry option." β€”Sherlockian

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 33 colors).

    11. Some handy file folders to keep your important documents safe and sound. Need to find your passport before a big trip? Look no further than the adorable accordion folder in your desk drawer.


    Promising review: "I am on the road all the time for work, and these have made my life so much easier! I have almost every color of these and use one for my personal (bills to pay, checks to cash, to-do lists, forms to sign, etc.), another for anything that pertains to a specific day, and one for each of my clients. I could easily see these being great for high school or college classes. These go from the floor of my car, to my bottomless purse, to the kitchen counter β€” they go everywhere and they have held up great! I absolutely love these!" β€”Jenna Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in eight colors).

    12. A set of packing cubes for anyone who's ever tried and immediately failed at keeping their luggage in check while on vacation. Vacation isn't the time to fret over organization β€” let the cubes do it for you.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    The set comes with four packing cubes of various size, as well as a laundry bag.

    I have these packing cubes and cannot recommend them enough β€” they made an organizational task I was seriously dreading into SUCH an easy one. I just went on a two week vacation to New Zealand and just KNEW that by the time I got home my suitcase was going to look like two tornados kissing. But with the cubes, my suitcase was neat and tidy for the entire trip. By the end of week one, I found myself spontaneously yelling "I love the CUBES!" in a Seinfeld-adjacent voice, much to the dismay of everyone I was traveling with. But what can I say? They're the best thing I've bought for a long time.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $24.99 (available in nine colors).

    13. A purse organizer with 11 glorious pockets so you don't have to fight to shove your hand through 20 tubes of lipstick just to grab hold of your wallet.


    The organizer has handles so you can easily transfer it from bag to bag!

    Promising review: "Extremely pleased with the number of pockets, sturdy construction and built-in water bottle pocket. It fits well into my large Long Champ le pliage tote with room to spare on the side for a 13" MacBook Pro. The water bottle pocket holds my insulated Kleen Kanteen snugly and the side pockets are more than enough to store a charging cable, earbuds, chapstick, keys, glasses cleaner, etc. Made such a big difference to my work bag and now I don't have to rummage around endlessly to retrieve an item!" β€”Grace Ho

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

    14. A hanger stacker so the bottom of your closet can finally be FREE! No more fighting with tangled hooks just to hang up one shirt.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!" β€”Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    15. A password journal, because I don't think you can remember every single unique password you make, and, you can argue if you want, but I don't think you can keep track of the scraps of paper you usually jot them down on either.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this little book! What an awesome idea someone had when they came up with this! I have always had to write my passwords in some sort of notebook/journal since I have so many accounts and can never remember any of them, but this just made it SO much easier! It’s in alphabetical order which is super convenient and it’s discreet yet not boring enough to get shuffled away with other paperwork and notebooks." β€”Erika Gustafson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes).

    16. A Quip toothbrush subscription so you always have a fresh brush right when you need it and can even remember to brush all four corners of your mouth for the perfect amount of time with its helpful cues.

    The starter set comes with an electric toothbrush base, a cover/mount, and an optional toothpaste. Refills come with a brush head, AAA battery, and optional toothpaste.

    Get a starter set from Quip for $25+ with $5+ refills every three months.

    Quip won as the inexpensive option in The Best Electronic Toothbrushes on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    17. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray for at least looking like you had time to get yourself together in the morning. Don't worry β€” your secret's safe with me.

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle-free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." β€”Seth

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.24.

    18. A handheld vacuum so the next time you make a bit of a mess, you don't have to just stare at it hoping it goes away. This tiny vacuum lacks the hassle of a full-size one and will make little cleaning tasks way more doable.


    The vacuum is bagless for easy emptying and even comes with a wall mount so cleanliness is always within reach.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this product. Bought for my bathroom to clean up hair on a daily basis, I have a lot of it. Cleans up everything and holds a charge for many uses. Also easy to empty and clean!" β€”Melissa Nau

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    19. A cup holder car trash can, because you might not mind when your feet have to crunch through trash just to get in the vehicle, but your passengers might.


    Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how much I love these! The push part is on a spring so it stays closed when you aren’t pushing it, and of course it perfectly fits in the cup holder of our vehicles. Pro tip: a quart-sized Ziploc is the perfect size to add as a liner and fold over the top to keep the inside clean!" β€”Chaos Coordinator

    Get it from Amazon for $6.58.

    20. A peace of mind journal so you don't have to meet with a lawyer just yet, but you CAN ensure that your prized collection of Pez dispensers ends up in rightful hands β€” just in case of the worst.


    Promising review: "A friend paid her attorney hundreds of dollars to have the information in this book put together for her. This is very thorough and has everything I would like family to know if I become incapacitated. I have just begun filling it out, and it does take time to put in all the names, passwords and numbers, but this is so necessary. I especially like the blank pages to write my own thoughts for loved ones. Legally, I don't think this book replaces a will, but just a good way to have everything in one place." β€”Fat Cinnamon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.69.

    21. A stainless steel water bottle, because popular culture says the solution to all of your problems is to simply drink more water. And hey, you'll probably be more likely to do that from a cute bottle!


    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $21.74 (originally $28.99, enter code "PREVIEW" at checkout; available in three colors).

    22. Some enormous, tabbed sticky notes so your highlighting and line notes don't become forgotten or illegible. I'm sure your thoughts on this passage of Franny and Zooey are timeless and not just part of a phase.


    Promising review: "These sticky notes are excellent. They come in a booklet, with a clear cover over and a card-like paper with a blue mandala pattern at the back, which is really neat and beautiful. The colors are quite neon and bright and look exactly as the picture shows. The tabs are neat and noticeable at any angle, and are 2.4 cm or about 0.8 inches in length. The paper note itself is 14.8 cm or 5.8 inches in length. They came in neatly and safely packaged, with no dirt or paper creasing in sight." β€”malik

    Get them from Amazon for $3.71.

    23. A box of affirmation cards, because you always deserve a little encouragement, especially when the struggle is real.


    Promising review: "Buy these for your friend, your grandma, your sibling, YOURSELF! These Affirmators will light up your day and make you feel warm and fuzzy! I have yet to see someone draw one, read it, and not smile with delight. You will want to Instagram every single card because they are that good. I am gushing now. Just buy the cards already!" β€”Bex27

    Get it from Amazon for $12.39.

    24. A Tile Sport for keeping tabs on your valuables and tracking them down if they happen to escape. This applies to keys, wallets, cats, pretty much anything!,

    The Tile Sport has a 200-foot range, rings when you need to find it, can make your phone ring even when it's on silent, and is waterproof.

    Promising review: "Finally went and got this after I was done with losing my keys all the time. Being able to literally ring my keys not to mention other items has proved invaluable and has saved me a lot of time not having to look for important things like this. Highly recommend." β€”Dave

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    25. A wine stain remover, because accidents happen. But when every white shirt you own has droplets of merlot on it, it may be time to call in some backup.

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn't just take most of the red wine out β€” the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    26. A toilet wand with a caddy to make your most dreaded task SO much easier. The wand lets you stay at a safe distance and the disposable sponge means you'll never have to touch anything yucky. You got this.

    The kit comes with one wand, a caddy, and six disposable scrubber refills.

    Promising review: "Do you ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How is a dirty used-up brush still sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom, but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine your porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning-brush-thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand: the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep clean and to toss away the brush after you're done. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just how we like to clean." β€”Juliana

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59.

    27. A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet so you don't have to launch a full-fledged investigation into the dish status every time you want to pop in a fork. I don't know about you, but I have never once remembered if the dishes were clean or dirty. Am I...ok?


    Promising review: "My kid always used to ask, 'MOM ARE THESE CLEAN OR DIRTY DISHES?' Now, I don’t have to answer the same question over and over again. Thank you! It works great. I just stick it to the dishwasher and turn it so they know if the dishes are clean or dirty. I’ve had this for five or more years now. I love it." β€”Brighteyez

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    28. And if all else fails, a bag of highly caffeinated Death Wish coffee, because maybe your life isn't falling apart β€” you just needed a little extra boost all along!


    Folks who normally rely on constant refills of normal roasts find themselves only having a cup or two of this with the same results. You've been warned. Death Wish coffee is fair-trade and organic.

    Promising review: "Ok folks, words of warning, ration out your coffee. If you drink a 24 ounce Starbucks, you need an 8 ounce of this as your FIRST cup. I'm serious here, heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single-handedly raising the Titanic on your own, all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned." β€”ItsTheXFactor

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.
