    1. A pair of Levi's ribcage-cut straight leg jeans because you're ready to move on from skinny jeans. Reviewers swear these are the ones you've been looking for.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    They're 1% elastane, for a little stretch that's still structured — just how you want it to be.

    Promising review: "I I love these! I have been looking for a nice straight leg with a super high waist and this is it! Great fit. I'm 5'8" and 130lbs and I ordered a 26. They're snug but not too tight, super comfortable. They have a little give and stretch, but not too much." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $39.99+ (available in women's sizes 22–42 and nine colors)

    2. And! An oversized jean trucker jacket, to rock the head-to-toe denim power look that's going to be ~the thing~ this fall. The reviews are stellar, the price is right, and it even comes in purple (be still my 13-year-old heart!).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I'm so excited by the purple one I just ordered it for myself. Fall has no idea what's comin'!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a denim jacket that came to or below my waist. I also wanted some room to move as so many jean jackets are so fitted. I did order up a size to allow for some shrinkage with the cotton content and for added room/movement. Boy is this jacket comfortable! It has give due to it's added stretchiness. I have plenty of room when I wear a sweatshirt or bulky clothes. None of my clothes get bound up in the sleeves of the jacket. It is as soft as the pretty lavender color tells you it must be...now to add my beautiful peacock appliques! Then I will be buying several more of these in other colors!!!" —Jezzie

    Price: $39.99+ (available in women's sizes S-XL and four colors)

    3. A six-piece cast-iron cookware set for sublimely even heating and incredible durability. They're basically heirloom-quality (seriously!), and therefore an incredible bargain for under $90.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The set includes 10" and 12" skillets with matching glass lids, a pizza pan, a pan rack, two silicone handles, and a scraper.

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a really crispy crust, this is the pan for you. Just heat it up before placing your dough on it and it sizzles. We haven't ordered pizza since I got this pan. It makes the best pizza and takeout/delivery is unappealing since tasting pizza made at home with this awesome piece of equipment. Just love it." —Bee Grandma

    Price: $85.99

    4. A set of flashlights with five modes because we're just getting started on power-outage season and you want to be prepared. Having an LED flashlight that's water-resistant and has an adjustable beam can't stop a monsoon, nor'easter, or hurricane, but it *will* keep you safe as you head downstairs to check on the basement. And it comes in a two-pack, so you always have a spare.

    Two black flashlights with storage pouches
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As I unpacked the two flashlights, I noticed how heavy and well-made they were. We took it outside for a test, and it easily lit up the yard. Then, we adjusted it to a focused beam and hit the roof of the house behind us...two doors down. So, needless to say, it's bright. I liked the pouches they came with, again, well made. These might be inexpensive flashlights, but they sure aren't cheap. These are 10X better than anything I expected for the price. Will be buying more sets for the kids and mother-in-law." —Amy

    Price: $17.99, for two

    5. A punching bag set so you can take your stress out on something that's actually intended for that purpose.

    Reviewer using the punching bag set
    amazon.com

    The bottom is weighed down by water or sand, which you fill yourself.

    All sets include a bag, base, and pole. Inflatable bags come with a pump and gloves, but the kickboxing bag is à la carte.

    Promising review: "Super easy to assemble. I am not super handy but assembled as my husband and 17-year-old son watched me. It even comes with the tools you need! That was a beautiful thing! Doesn't take much space; we are limited on space and this is the perfect size for our small room. All of us are getting a great upper body workout. Overall, we think this was a great purchase and a really good value."Nick

    Price: $37.41+ (available in six styles)

    6. A stealthily ergonomic desk chair, which looks way more put-together than most office furniture, and has positively amazed reviewers with it's surprising long-term comfort.

    The chair
    amazon.com

    It's made by the comfort experts at Serta, who excel at making things that are designed to be kind to your body, and keep performing well a good long time. It comes in a knobby textile upholstery, or upholstered in bonded leather.

    Promising review: "I was surprised at how much I love this chair. It was very easy to assemble with only five steps in the instructions, and from unboxing to finished product it only took about twenty minutes to put the whole thing together. The fabric is a nice neutral beige with a pleasant but not overwhelming texture. The chair swivels, has a nice adjustable height range, and leans back well, although I had to adjust the tension knob significantly to get it to a point where I could lean back without pushing too hard. I spend a lot of time at my desk gaming, and I've had seven-hour-plus marathons since buying this chair that were comfortable all the way through. Would buy again without a second thought." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $179.06+ (available in ten colors)

    7. A best-selling litter box enclosure that doubles as an end table so your cat's bathroom can be more out of sight and out of mind, while also blending in seamlessly with the rest of your furniture. Reviewers love that it makes it easier to keep the litter box in the living room, and it helps to contain spilt litter.

    amazon.com

    Tell me literally any other opportunity you'd have to say "wow, this litter box really compliments the decor!" I'll wait.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this, because I feel I find products that have a ton of great reviews and then when I get the product home it doesn't live up to expectations (looking at you Omega litter box!). I had the litter box in a bathroom previously, and used this to move my litter box into the living space without it being super obvious. This thing is awesome and exactly what I needed. Assembly took me about an hour. I also recommend a litter mat to catch anything your cat brings out when it steps outside. I'm really happy with my purchase!" —Jennifer P.

    Price: $92.16+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    8. A potato ricer so you can finish making your Sunday meat and potatoes without wearing your arms out working the handheld kind up and down.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My partner actually ordered this and used for our Christmas dinner with our extended family. They made pounds and pounds of potatoes and loved the ricer. It made for the smoothest potatoes ever — no lumps at all! It will be even better for smaller batches of mashed potatoes." —Russell G.

    Price: $21.95

    9. A versatile button-down tank top that you can wear from summer into fall: rock it on its own for a fair weather look, or layer with a light sweater, flannel button-down, or a jean jacket. The fit is fun and flowy, to keep you feeling cool and looking fine, all year long.

    A reviewer wearing a white button down tank top
    amazon.com

    Pair it with #1 and #2 for an instant awesome fall ensemble (you're welcome!).

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this top! I got a ton of compliments and it fit perfectly and the quality was better than I expected. No one could believe I bought this top on Amazon! It was plenty long enough and I loved the look of tucking it in in the front. The straps are adjustable also." —Ashley9217

    Price: $17.99+ (available in women's sizes S–2XL and ten colors)

    10. A large cross-body fanny pack with multiple zipper pockets to keep your phone, water bottle, keys, sunglasses, and wallet safely stashed and snug during long outdoor runs, hikes, and other excursions.

    Review' water blue fanny pack with what it holds: keys, two pairs of glasses, a mask, tissues, lip balm, and neosporin
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "For someone who never writes reviews, I sure look to them for guidance. So I'm happy to report that this fanny pack is spectacular. Not only is it roomy, it's sturdy, convenient, and stylish!" —Michelle

    Price: $11.99+ (available in 20 colors)

    11. A multi-purpose blade and tool sharpener puck, because only a ~tool~ lets their knives, hatchets, and axes get dull. There's a course side for shaping and a finer side for finishing.

    A reviewer holding a grey stone sharpening puck
    amazon.com

    You'll feel like a winning contestant on Forged in Fire while using your refreshed hatchet to slice firewood paper-thin. Who cares if it goes up in 30 seconds? You're an ~artisan~. (That show is peak camp...and I love it).

    Promising review: "This thing is AMAZING. I bought this puck to try to hold us over till knife sharpening day, as I have to cut sometimes, and I HATE using dull knives. I decided to test it on what was effectively a butter knife by this point. Result: impressive. Just a couple minutes and my knife went through meat like butter. It was glorious. BUY THIS PUCK. You will not regret it." —Critter

    Price: $7.49

    12. An Umbra geometric Umbra geometric wall planter to turn your boring wall into a veritable terrarium. Use them in any room for a vibey and verdant style refresh.

    Three white/brass, geometric planter vases mounted to a wall
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these for my office. The quality of ceramic and brass is great. They're sturdy and beautiful, and I've gotten several compliments in the short amount of time I've had them up. They definitely look more expensive than they are." —Stephanie M

    Price: $18.89+ (available in four versions)

    13. A three-pack of drain hair snakes that're sure to make Medusa jealous as you de-clog your slow-draining tub, by removing all the hair that's gotten caught down there. It's super satisfying to use because the things work *shockingly* well, plumbers are super expensive, and you deserve a drain that actually, y'know...drains. All reasons you need these in your life, like, right away.

    Hair pulled from a drain
    amazon.com

    You're going to be amazed at how much stuff it'll pull up.

    Each one is 25 inches long to get every last drain-clogging hairball.

    Promising review: "Yeah, it worked — REALLY, REALLY well. Had no idea it was this bad. I stupidly tried the several clog remover gels and endless cycles of boiling water followed by baking soda and vinegar and then boiling water again. All that time I wasted and I could have just done this. 🤦My tub used to take an hour to drain. Since using this, I timed it, it completely drains in a minute and a half. HUGE difference. The picture shows the first pull. There is no getting it off this thing so we trashed it and used another one and got even more out.
    Save your time and money and try this first instead of last." —Carla Y

    Price: $5.94

    14. A 24-pack of ivy garland so you can create the appearance of a vertical garden without actually having to tend to one. These plastic vines look *so* real that they've earned over 21,000 5-star ratings.

    Ivy Hanging in reviewer's Garden
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These ivy strands are just perfect for decorating an outdoor garden in a hot, dry desert environment — especially one that has a hard time growing ivy naturally. I live in Las Vegas, and I used it on the walls of my zen garden to add a burst of green to make it look more lush. This hanging ivy also has the added benefit of lowering the reflected light of the sun coming off the walls; this protects my real plants from excess heat damage. Additionally, these ivy strands are very sturdy! They have so far withstood high winds and 100-degree temps without breaking or fading. And they are easy to handle. I was able to tie each strand into a double knot on the bars of my fence without difficulty. I’m so pleased with my purchase that I bought three more packs for my garden. I would highly recommend this product for creative outdoor garden decor!" —Naimah

    Price: $16.99

    15. A self-emptying robot vacuum pet owners love for cleaning shred hair off the floor, saving time, sparing their knees, and relieving them of one of the most onerous of responsibilities that comes with pet ownership. It's hair-wrap resistant, app-controlled and Alexa-compatible, and docks ~itself~ for charging, even midway through cleaning, so it always finishes the job.

    The vacuum
    Amazon

    I wish I had that kind of will power. I'll take a break to get a glass of water, and pretty soon I'm three episodes deep into yet another Rick and Morty binge. 

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this thing! It has made my life so much easier. I have a dog who sheds SO MUCH and this has cut down on my vacuuming time. The fact that it's self-emptying makes it that much more convenient. It picks up pet hair really well. The app is easy to use and I also love that you can schedule cleanings. My dog doesn't love it, but he got used to it and now just gets out of it's way." —Claire

    Price: $379.99

    16. A pair of sheer curtains you can use indoors or outdoors to totally transform the look of your place. These plain white panels might not seem like much, but as soon as they're hung up you'll be swooning over how dreamy they look.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The reason these are OK to use outside is because they're made of polyester, which an inorganic material that resists mold and mildew waaaaaayyyy better than cotton or linen do. However, you still need to wash them every once in a while, because even though the material is inorganic, fungi can grow on the crud that will inevitably build up on them over time.

    Promising review: "These are an incredible value for the money. They look and feel much more expensive than they are. They let in a great amount of light while still giving the slightest bit of privacy. The material feels silky and smooth, unlike linen. They are perfect to pair with velvet curtains. I wound up buying them for several rooms in the house!" —Let's be Honest

    Price: $13.99+ (available in 19 sizes and seven colors)

    17. A pair of cropped high-waisted pants with three decorative bows on them, because your workwear needs a splash of panache. They have pockets and are versatile to wear from day to night, and the lightweight fabric is perfect as the weather transitions from summer to fall.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    They're from Grace Karin, and you know what that means: they're cut just right, the fit is awesome, the quality is amazing, and the price is unbelievable. I love this brand so much y'all, and these pants are real winners.

    Go for red, coffee, deep blue, or tea rose pink to be on-trend for this fall (at least according to New York Fashion Week).

    Promising review: "A must-have!!! These pants are super cute and fit quite comfortably and the material is very good quality. The elastic makes them stay up nicely at the waist so that they don't shift when you stretch or sit. They go nicely with a crop top without any exposure of skin. They can be worn on different occasions — dress them up with heels if you want a more formal look or dress them down if you are going for casually elegant." —Fomba Kanneh

    Price: $11.04+ (available in women's sizes S–2XL and 37 colors)

    18. A four-pack of soft, breathable, and reusable cooling towels that come with their own little carrier pouches and carabiner clips, making them super easy to attach to a sports bag, fanny pack, or backpack. Simply sling the towel around your neck and enjoy an instant chill.

    The blue/grey/green/pink cooling towels
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We took these down to Florida and I honestly credit them for keeping me from heat stroke. We wet them several times a day after they dried out, wrapped them around our necks, and let them do their job. They don’t have to be drippy wet to work, just damp. We filled the bags (that they came with, with carabiners) with water and sealed them up, then pulled them out when we needed them." —David

    Price: $15.99+ (available in 10 color combinations)

    19. A dish soap dispenser, so you don't have to soap up the sink every time you need to re-up on suds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “Works awesomely. Instead of picking up my large package of Dawn and dropping it into the sink almost every time to do the dishes, I just push down on the sponge and a good amount of detergent pops up, and I'm all set. Works great. I would buy again and definitely recommend.” —Cynthia Vincent

    Price: $10.99

    20. A cool set of coasters, because who needs rings on their wood coffee table? Not you!

    A set of six ceramic stone coasters with unique black/white patterns on each
    amazon.com

    Save your paper souvenir coaster collection for posterity by putting these to work instead.

    Promising review: "I really love these coasters. They look more expensive than they were! Really nice simple patterns, and does its job!" —Alexis Orozco

    Price: $8.99+ (available in two versions)   

    21. A pack of portable push-up bars to ~give you a hand~ while doing body-weight workouts. The cushioned grip is easy on the palms and gives you a little extra control, and the no-slip grips really stay put.

    Reviewer using the portable push- bars
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were purchased for a friend who has a wrist injury and cannot do normal push-ups. The handles disassemble and can lie flat, which makes them super easy to pack and unpack and also is more environmentally friendly (as the company uses a smaller package to ship them). Assembly takes about five seconds — the parts snap into place. They wouldn't slide around at all, even after I applied a reasonably strong horizontal force to them. The foam on the handles is sturdy and feels thick and firm, and thus unlikely to rip." —John

    Price: $11.99

    22. An air purifier so those of you with pet allergies can finally sleep without a stuffy nose.

    A new filter / a dirty filter after five months of use showing caked on dirt
    amazon.com

    Also, the front cover is magnetic so it's easy to clean it out or replace the filter.

    This is a Levoit product, and as someone who is really sensitive to air quality, I can tell you they make really great, low-priced air filters that perform as well as models two and three times as expensive. It's a solid choice if you're looking for a lower-cost option for trying to make things better re: your allergies.

    Promising review: "Filters pet hair like a beast. I'm allergic to cats and I have four. Before the air purifier, I had a stuffy nose and had to clear my throat all night. At times I would wake up coughing. Now I sleep like a baby. I have two of them: one in the bedroom and one in the living room. It's made a HUGE difference." —Amazon customer

    Price: $119.99

    23. A 32-pocket tool roll to help you keep what you need on hand, without taking up a lot of space. Going RVing? Living in an apartment whose size could be compared to an RV...unfavorably? It's got you covered.

    The tool roll
    Amazon

    My NYC apartment is smaller than my mother's living room...and I share it. My truck ~literally~ has more space to itself than I do. Oh, and there's no closets, or drawers for that matter. So, I'm always on the lookout for stuff like this! It's a great replacement for a bulky toolbox, or what I like to refer to as "the pile system."

    Promising review: "At first, when I got the tool roll, I was very impressed with the ruggedness of the material that the tool roll is made from. This is ideal for me personally because I full-time RV. I just was able to use the tool roll when I was stranded with broken wheel studs and had to go all the way down into the innards of the hub. All my tools were there in a very easy way to access them. 
    Besides the ruggedness, I really love the fact that it is black and it won't look so bad over time. I thank this company for a great product. It saves me space while at the same time allowing me to see all my tools in an easy way when it's open. For me, this is better than having those tools in a tool bag because I can find them very quickly, and I can close it up into a small space." —Laurie Flood

    Price: $17.99

    24. A set of mixing bowls, matching lids, and utensils, with bowls that are super versatile. Use them for meal prep, serving, or storage; also, they come in a ton of sizes *and* stack, so they're there for you when you need them, but won't hog your cabinets when you don't.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    There are seven bowls with silicone bottoms, so they don't slip around, and also matching lids for storage purposes. The utensil set includes 13 pieces: a basting brush, a spreader spatula, a flexible spatula, an egg whisk, an egg separator, and six measuring spoons.

    Promising review: “I bought these for the bowls and didn’t realize it came with so many extras!! Bowls are fantastic, good and thick, and the lids are great. They don’t slide all over the counter. The utensils are pretty nice. The silicone is one piece so they don’t come apart like some do." —Toni

    Price: $36.99 (available in three colors)

    25. A dustpan and brush set, because your cat loves tracking their litter everywhere, and even though your vacuum is great it still can't get up the bits left in corners and along the baseboards. Reviewers compliment this pint-sized powerhouse for its stiff corner-crud-catching bristles, as well as its unusually sturdy construction.

    The brush and pan set
    amazon.com

    And just speaking personally — that lime color is A+. Who ever said cleaning supplies have to be boring?!?

    Promising review: "What can I say about this other that it’s ADORABLE! I bought it to keep in my basement near the litter box because my cat is messy and doesn’t care. It works great for this because the bristles are stiffer than you'd think and gets into all the cracks and crevices. It’s perfect for that job. It’s well-made, not flimsy like the dollar store version I purchased a couple weeks ago. As they say, get what you pay for. This is quality." —Evette Rowley

    Price: $8.99

    26. An adjustable, fast-folding strength training bench designed with seven back positions and three seat positions for an incredible full-body workout. It's a definite must-have for your home gym, even if it's just the one available corner in your room.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow, love love LOVE! I live in a studio apartment and had a full bench that I couldn’t stand looking at anymore. I wanted something just as functional but easy to store. This bench is perfect! I was afraid it wouldn’t be as sturdy as my other bench and that I may not be able to do step-ups safely on it. I could not have been more wrong. This bench is high quality and extremely sturdy. This thing doesn’t budge when doing step-ups or any other exercises. It honestly has blown me away. Worth every penny. Slips right into my closet. With this, my power blocks, and resistance bands, now I can have a fully functioning gym setup I can store in the closet of my small apartment! Wish I would have purchased sooner. Great quality bench!" —Breanna

    Price: $145.79

    27. A high performance polo shirt, because these rib-collared bad boys are making a comeback...and this one's quick drying, holds up *amazingly* in the wash, ~and~ provides SPF 50 protection.

    A reviewer wears the shirt in gray
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These shirts are great. Lightweight, breathe well, and outstanding comfort. They don't shrink much after washing either. I bought several of them because of their outstanding fit. I recommended them to a guy at work and he bought four." —Seth

    Price: $15.90 (available in men's sizes XS–XXL and 43 colors)

    28. An Aquapaw pet washing mechanism that you attach to your shower to safely control the water flowing onto your pet. It turns on and off easily, and the knobby surface can give your pupper, kitty, and other dirty darling angels the massage of their life. Folks say their pets really do tolerate it well — some even like it, and if you've ever tried giving a furry friend a bath, you know how much of a compliment that is!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    It's made of food-grade silicone, suitable for using inside or outside. The set comes with adapters to fit your shower spigot or garden hose, and an eight-foot hose.

    Promising review: "Great way to control water while washing your dog. Very high-quality unit, well-deigned and constructed. The clicking mechanism is really ingenious for controlling water flow while you wash your dog. Over the years, I've used a number of cheap versions of this and always felt like I was struggling with the unit on my hand while trying to control the dog and the water; this elegantly solves the control problem with the in-palm flow switch. Also, I'm impressed that the set included everything needed to install the unit on a home shower, including a Y valve and Teflon tape!" —Continental Drift

    Price: $24.95

    29. A Swiss Army knife so you're always prepared...for any situation requiring a knife blade, screwdriver, scissors, tweezer, toothpick, or a nail file. There's even a keyring, so you can carry it with you all the time (except in an airport).

    A reviewer's red swiss army knife with nail file and knife feature out
    amazon.com

    "I have a job interview coming up, my nails are a mess, there's broccoli in my teeth, this shirt has threads coming off of it, my glasses need re-screwing, and I need to be sure to remember to bring a sharpened stick. Good thing I bought this Swiss Army knife."

    Promising review: "The little knife is my favorite of the Swiss Army knives. It has a sharp but short knife blade, a fingernail file, a flathead screwdriver, a sharp scissor, a toothpick, and a tweezer. I have been the proud owner of many of these pen knives over the past 40 years. They have opened many boxes and blister packs, cut many broken fingernails and filed them smooth; retrieved many minute pieces of food from my teeth, and, sadly, many have been confiscated by the the TSA in airports around the world because I kept forgetting I had one on my keyring. They have more than doubled in price over the years, but they are still a great little knife." —Professor

    Price: $16.97

    30. An oil mister to allow you to enjoy all the versatility of products like Pam, without having to endure the toxic propellants and preservatives. Just load it up with the oil of your choice, and spray away!

    It's better for you, and the planet. Win-win!

    Promising review:  "The sprayer is made of a high-quality glass container with a spraying nozzle capable of producing a very fine mist. This is perfect for coating baking pans with oil and other cooking needs. The trigger is smooth and easy to use. The slim profile makes it easy to store and doesn't hog your precious kitchen storage space.” —K.K.
