    1. A set of clear food storage containers that are a serious upgrade from the dingy old containers you've had forever. We're talking airtight leak-proof seals with secure latches and a crystal-clear design that resists stains and odors. On top of that, these have built-in vents allowing steam to escape so you can microwave food without removing the lid. They really thought of everything!

    Promising review: "I LOVE these containers!! Very sturdy, great seal, no leak, and best of all, no odor!! I've stored jambalaya, fajita meat, stains and no residual odor left after cleaning. Clean up is easy. Able to handwash or use dishwasher. I will be buying another set!"—James

    Promising review: "I used these labels to add to cookies I made for my granddaughter's first birthday party. I make chocolate chip cookies placed them in a cellophane bag and added Cookie Monster's face to the label. The kids loved them. The whole process did not take long because using the Avery Wizard template was quick and easy."—Crush

    5. A set of stainless-steel wipes, because if you have a stainless-steel fridge, I'm about to change your life. These will make you wonder how you ever cleaned without them — they erase all of the annoying fingerprints from your appliances, and I promise it will make your entire kitchen look like a million bucks.

    Promising review: "I have a refrigerator and dishwasher that were hard to keep shiny. These wipes keep them glossy and are very easy to use. One wipe and done. Only heavy spills require more than one pass to bring the finish back to as-new looking. One and done, is the best description for these wipes. AND, the shine lasts for many days!!!" —bobert99

    Price: $3.74

    6. A set of mixing bowls that will seriously upgrade all of your cooking *and* storing. Think: chop up a salad, grate cheese (like a LOT of cheese) directly into the bowl, and use the airtight lid to save the leftovers!

    7. A lazy Susan perfect for keeping all of your sauces and condiments within reach. I'll admit, I have to have Frank's Hot Sauce with every meal. I really do put that ish on everything.

    Promising review: "I have ordered the Mainstays products in the past and I have not been disappointed. In this case I ordered the large nonskid turntable. It is sturdy and the liner is firmly attached. The turntable turns freely. I used this one in the fridge and holds about seven jars of medium size. Another plus is the price, it was by far the most reasonable of all I shopped."—armourdale

    Price: $7.72

    8. A super cute, farmhouse-style porcelain butter dish that holds up to four sticks of butter so you'll always have enough on hand. It's practical and adorable all at once!

    Price: $10.99

    10. A slim cart to finally utilize that awkward space between your fridge and cabinets. In tiny kitchens like mine you need to maximize every inch.

    The Arm & Hammer baking soda

    Promising review: "I like the invention of a box that cannot leak. Having the baking soda in the fridge and freezer works for getting rid of spice and meat smells that can absorb into other foods. Having the packaging made for ventilation without spillage is brilliant."—EasyToClean

    Price: $4.98

    12. Or! A natural moso bamboo charcoal bag that'll eliminate odors in your fridge, freezer, and cooler. Give this a quick refresh in the sunlight once a month and you can keep reusing the same bag for up to two years!

    Promising review: "I hung this on the back wall of my fridge yesterday and today odors are completely gone! I dunno how long it will last but for now it's doing great. I'll just make sure to lay it out in the sun once a month like the instructions say so it can do its recharging thing. Will save money over two years on baking soda, etc. So far so good!"—mom20072019

    Price: $7.83

    13. A drink dispenser for making a big batch of iced tea (or your drink of choice), and keeping it in the fridge for easy dispensing.

    Clear glass drink dispenser with teal lid filled with pink lemonade

    Promising review: "This beverage dispenser is awesome! It is glass, so obviously you need to handle it with care. The nozzle can easily be tightened from the inside, if needed. I have used these beverage dispensers for MANY parties. I like that it holds two gallons, which is sizeable and means less time spent "refilling" on my end. Get lots of compliments. Just need to remember to "unlock" the clasp/rubber top, so that the beverage can flow. Simple physics, my friends. These same dispensers go from $30—$50 each at other stores. This is a bargain....get them while you can." —Pavlovna

    Price: $13.98

    14. A set of colorful mixing bowls that come with uber convenient lids. No more scrounging around for the matching lids to your old containers, or wasting plastic wrap that ends up leaking.

    Colorful bowls with floral designs, including matching lids

    Promising review: "This bowl set is really well thought out, from the lids, right down to the rubber nonslip gasket on the bottom. The colors are bright and cheery. We have used them for picnics, placing ice in a larger one, and setting a smaller one in it to keep the contents cool."—nancy

    Price: $29.50 (available in two color patterns)

    15. A set of cut-to-fit fridge liners to keep your drawers and shelves perfectly clean and also super cute! These are machine-washable so you can keep everything looking *fresh*.

    Refrigerator with blue lattice shelf liners

    Promising review: "I like these a lot and they can be washed but need to use the delicate cycle, and I wished they made them longer so they would fit the long shelves in the fridge that way you wouldn't have to piece it together so much. This is the second time I have bought and I will buy them again."—Peggypmhill

    Price: $9.13+ (available in seven colors and three patterns)

    16. A clear bottle holder that will corral all of the loose bottles from rolling around in your fridge. Reviewers say the only thing that could make this better is if it could refill itself. If only!

    Clear plastic bin that fits water bottles

    Promising review: "Great for all my water bottles. If only there was a magical setting that would make my husband and children fill it up after they get the last water. Anyway, still very convenient storage."—comfy

    Price: $14

    17. A cold brew coffee maker for anyone who's obsessed with cold brew like me — it's just about the best way to upgrade your caffeine love story. Just add your fav coffee grounds and water and store it in the fridge for concentrated, smooth-tasting coffee that stays fresh for up to two weeks.

    Promising review: "I used to use magnets on my fridge to hold my son's artwork. But every time I turned around he was pulling the magnets down. With command clear he cannot get his artwork off the fridge anymore. Score Mom 1, son 0."—KellyF

    Price: $6.99

    19. A set of large silicone ice cube trays in square and round shapes, because these'll upgrade your cocktails and make you seem like a legit bartender. You can even use them to make ~soup cubes~ for easy meal prep!

    Black silicone ice trays, one that makes cubes and one that makes spheres

    Promising review: "I love this ice cube trays so much, I bought another one. Each ice cube holds 4 ounces of water. Getting the ice cubes out took a little practice. And now we just use a clean T-shirt or a small towel to pop them out so my hands don't get frozen. They look great in a glass. And if we're using a cold beverage one ice cube does the trick. We only do the round ice cubes if we have company, because those cubes look super sexy in adult beverages."—Unthrifty

    Price: $10.95

    20. A beautiful, heat-resistant glass pitcher for storing and serving hot or cold beverages. My favorite part? A stainless steel filter lid makes it easy to pour infused water or sangria without the ice or fruit falling out of the pitcher!

    Clear glass pitcher with filter lid

    Promising review: "This is perfect! Small enough where it doesn't take up a ton of room in our fridge but large enough to get 4-5 large glasses of iced tea. It fits on the door on my fridge."—Nicole

    21. A vacuum-sealing starter kit that promises to keep your meats and produce fresh in the fridge up to *five times* longer. If you vacuum seal and then store it in the freezer, it'll stay fresh for up to THREE YEARS. Can you imagine? You'll be saving serious $$$ when you're not throwing out spoiled food anymore.

    Vacuum seal machine and bags with produce

    Promising review: "LOVE IT!! I’m so happy I got one of these for me. Now I don’t have to worry if any of my food items will go bad or buying in bulk. This food saver is awesome. I highly recommend for every home to have one. It’s small, so it won’t take up so much space. Has clean modern lines, looks amazing in my pantry. Love it."—Amazing
