    We weren't in the market for Wi-Fi plugs and when we saw the ads for these and the low cost my wife and I decided to try them.

    We are seniors and they absolutely make our lives easier as we don't have to get up and down (disabled) to do simple things like turning off/on the lights, TV, and other appliances! We currently have four Wyze plugs, Wyze cam, and are looking forward to getting the doorbell/cam." —Walmart Customer

    Promising review: "I bought this table as we were going for the mid-century look when we were furnishing our home. I gotta say, it looks very nice. It complemented our sofa nicely. We also found out this coffee table is very sturdy. My nephews use it for playing games, writing, and many more when they come over for a visit. So it has definitely been put to the test. We also like that it is very light and easy to move around when we have to vacuum the carpet. I normally don't like gold on any furniture, but this one actually being that it's frosted gold, look very elegant." —WalmartCustomer

I never leave these outdoors in the rain and so far they are sturdy and haven't faded at all. They came with the pillow insert and cover separate and I simply had to put the covers on. It was easy. I like that the covers come off if needed. The crochet front of these are SO cute. I was so happy when I came across these on the Walmart app." —DIYmom

Legs are a sturdy, smooth finished light colored wood. Very sturdy metal base under chairs. So easy to assemble. It took 15 mins. No tools needed, just what is provided. Chairs also have adjustable screws if needed to change the height. Highly recommend for the great price! Adorable!" —Amanda

    woven round pouf in hues of blue, brown, black, and white

    Promising review: "I am in the process of re-doing my daughter's roowogoing from a little girl look to a pre-teen room. I was scouring the internet for these poufs at an affordable price and was having no luck. Randomly checked the Walmart website and found these amazing ones! What a great price and they are super sturdy and cute. The knitting on them is tightly-woven and seems very well-made. They are a little smaller than I anticipated, but for the price, I am NOT complaining. I bought two of them and sat them at the end of her queen-size bed and it was the perfect final touch to bring the room together!" —uasingin4u

    Price: $44.97+ (originally $49.99+)

    24. A gold bar cart because every home needs a spot for at-home happy hours.

    round gold bar cart with glass shelves and caster wheels

    Promising review: "Love this bar cart! I'm always hesitant to buy gold trim items because the gold can sometimes be more of a yellow tone or super shiny. This bar cart has such a beautiful finish, more of a matte finish with a brass tone... I love it. It reminds me of a CB2 shelf I bought. It is also very sturdy, not cheaply made and the price is a steal, compared to other bar carts I have seen. I would definitely recommend this bar cart." —Norma

    Price: $79.93

    bidet toilet attachment

    Promising review: "I had always wanted a bidet but never got around to getting one, now I don't know how I've lived without one this long. I must say, at first installation was a little challenging for me because my water shutoff is outside. With the help of my neighbor, I was able to install it in a flash. I love the clean feeling I get after using it. I understand that you do not have to use the bidet every time you flush but once a day is best. Will never live without one. Talked to three of my friends and they have ordered this same one immediately." —Msmoemoe

    black metal clock with roman numerals and numbers for 3, 6, 9, and 12

    Promising review: "I love the minimalistic design! The ticking is not too loud; the size is big but good. The several lines (the whole design) is a bit tricky to get used to but it is beautiful to look at. I only wish the hands were a bit clearer to distinct from the rest of the clock but besides that I believe I will have this clock up on my wall for a long time." —Duo

    Price: $19.64

    30. A desk with hairpin legs and riser level to set up the perfect home office or makeup vanity.

    white desk with gold hairpin legs and upper level

    Promising review: "I love my desk! The directions were clear, a video is available. You do need two people. I had to improvise on that part. I put the piece on the couch and used my legs to hold it steady while I screwed the two pieces together. Lol. Took me about 45 minutes. Yay! Perfect size for my 'cloffice' (closet office)." —Gloria

    Price: $71.08+

    31. A tufted upholstered headboard that will upgrade your entire bedroom without the cost of a whole new bed.


    Promising review: "This headboard is exactly what I was looking for. I purchased the navy blue king size. It required two people to install, as it is heavy and tall. The hardware is found in the back of the headboard in a zippered compartment. The material covering the headboard is a thick canvas type cloth similar to the cloth used for backpacks making it very durable and easy to clean. I found this at Walmart for $100 cheaper than other retailers." —Tonirn79

    Price: $109+ (available in twin-king, in five colors, and rectangular or scalloped edge)
