    1. A daily planner notebook so you can successfully stay on top of each day's most important tasks and appointments — you can even make note of meals. Checking items off your list is rather therapeutic, let me tell ya.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    You can keep a log of your hourly schedule, plus top priorities for each day. In the notes section, you can keep track of daily water intake and bills that need to be paid! It comes with 50 pages.

    And check out my full review of the Amazon Fire TV stick.

    3. A makeup remover cloth that only needs water to lazily remove everything at the end of a long day. No more sleeping in last night's makeup because you couldn't keep your eyes open long enough to remove your eyeliner and mascara.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Check out our full review of the Makeup Eraser here! It was also selected as our mid-price pick for the best makeup removers on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.80.

    4. A pair of bestselling blue light-blocking glasses for reducing digital eye strain. If you sit in front of a computer for hours on end, then these are for you! They can leave your eyes feeling less dry and tired by filtering out short wavelength blue light emitted by screens.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    I use blue light-blocking glasses everyday at work, and they've significantly helped my eyes and headaches. I used to get so stressed sitting in front of a computer because I knew I'd feel terrible in about two hours flat. With the glasses, I can focus more on work and not on the mega-migraine that's (no longer) approaching.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $26.99+. Available in 23 different frame colours.

    5. A foam kitchen sponge that seriously lasts for months (and months, and months) on end without getting stinky, no matter how many dishes you wash.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    I used one of these from July 2018 and it didn't get smelly until March 2019 — a full NINE MONTHS — and I think it was only because I started to slack on my sponge hygiene. (Granted, I live alone, have a dishwasher, and tend to tackle my messiest dishes with these plastic scrapers before I scrub them with my soapy sponge. But I've NEVER seen a regular sponge last that long.)

    This is my basic sponge hygiene: 1) always rinse it out completely so there isn't any food left sitting on it and 2) when you're done washing your dishes, squeeze it out well and leave it somewhere it will actually dry.

    Get a pack of three on Amazon for $19.27.

    These were also one of the BuzzFeed Reviews picks for best kitchen sponges, where you can read our full review.

    6. A back massager with five attachment heads and a powerful motor that can do 3,600 pulses per minute. This device will provide a deep tissue massage to restore tired muscles. Yes, please!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This massager can also work on your legs, feet, and neck. After using 20 minutes, it will automatically stopped to prevent the massager from over heating. It also has over 6,000 positive reviews!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    7. A Rubbermaid produce saver that'll lengthen the lifespan of your groceries by regulating the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and preventing moisture build-up, slowing down the spoilage process. Now you'll actually get your money's worth of all those fruits and veggies you buy every week.

    Natalie Brown/BuzzFeed

    I own these containers and absolutely love them. They keep my produce fresh five times longer than normal plastic containers. I can now store strawberries and blueberries for longer than a week and not feel incredibly guilty about not eating them in time. By the second week, they are still fresh!

    Get them from Amazon Canada for $28.49 (available in various sizes and in packs).

    23. An alarm clock that simulates the sunrise to make getting up a slightly more pleasant experience.

    BuzzFeed, Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Read our full review of the Philips wake-up light alarm clock!

    Here's an excerpt: "I've been using this alarm + bedside lamp combo since last October, and I can't understate how wonderful it is to wake up ~peacefully~ every morning...and fall asleep more easily every night. There are only two alarm sound options: a radio station of your choice and a set of 'gentle wake-up sounds' that seemed a little too peaceful to actually get me out of bed.

    I've never needed that backup alarm. Here's why: No matter what the sun is doing that day, I get a sunrise in my room, perfectly timed to my schedule. The sounds help a little, but the light does most of the work. It starts getting brighter, slowly, before the alarm goes off, which my body reads as the beginnings of the sunrise. By the time the birds start singing, I'm already most of the way awake, and the light's bright enough that (after a few minutes scrolling through my phone) I just... get out of bed." —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $158.

    24. Or a cold brew maker so you know delicious coffee is waiting for you in the fridge. You can prepare it the day before, so there's zero effort required in the morning.
