    Target

    Promising review: "They’re so perfect. We recently started renting out a house with very plain finishes in order to appeal to the masses, and these bright tiles add so much character. Very impressed with the quality too. They look like real tile and don’t show too many of the bumps and imperfections in the tile that they’re covering." —Marlee

    Price: $25.99 (available in six colors)

    Promising review: "I have tried various slipcovers in the past with mixed results. The stretchy fabric and elastic allows for a really impressive fit. We took an inherited relic and modernized it for a very reasonable price. Totally recommend!" —Jay

    Promising review: "This leather cleaner works very well. It's easy to apply; I just spray it on and wipe it off with a clean, lint-free cloth. As I wipe, I work the cleaner/conditioner into the leather. I used it on a leather recliner where the headrest had build-up from hair oils, and it made it look great." —GailT

    Price: $6.99

    4. A powerful chrome shower head with seven modes, including a rain setting so you can close your eyes and pretend you got caught in a storm. A very cleansing storm.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because I desperately needed a new shower head. I was pleasantly surprised with the varying degrees of water pressure each setting offered. Another selling point were the clog-free nozzles. I have hard water where I live, so knowing I won’t have to replace this one every year due to excessive hard water buildup is a plus. For the money, it’s an excellent buy. I would recommend it." —Cydney

    Price: $39.99

    5. Non-toxic stainless steel wipes because your appliances deserve to look as sparkling as the day you bought them. These will remove residue, water marks, and grease while leaving behind a protective barrier to prevent smudges that'll keep your stainless stain-free!

    Target

    Promising review: "I came across these in the store one day and just grabbed them because we needed something to try and clean our fridge. I was surprised at how great they worked! One wipe took care of our whole fridge and was still moist enough to tackle the dishwasher and stove. These are 10 out of 10 and a great tool!" —Happy Black Sista

    Price: $4.79

    6. An oven cleaner so powerful you might just convince yourself you replaced your oven altogether. This heavy-duty cleaner can remove grime, stains, and caked-on food in minutes!

    Target

    Promising review: "Works like magic. I ordered this product after spending a couple of hours trying to clean the nasty residue on the bottom of my oven with vinegar and baking soda. This Easy-Off spray is a game-changer. Finally, I could easily remove all the grease from my oven." —Kim

    Price: $4.29

    Promising review: "I have luxury vinyl plank flooring, and the two regular mops I had would not get the floors clean. We have two dogs and paw prints happen no matter what we do. This is so easy to use. Yes it's expensive, but if you value less time mopping and not hurting your back while doing it, get this now!!" —Wendy

    Price: $119.99

    8. A faux-marble surface cover because your laminate countertops have been begging for a glow up. All you have to do is peel and stick for a glossy, easy-to-clean surface that'll elevate the look of your space.

    Promising review: "I've been looking at peel-and-stick tiles online, but the prices seemed too high for a purely aesthetic update to my rental kitchen. I bought this on a whim to cover my kitchen backsplash tiles. It took three to four hours, but the contact paper cut well and applied to the tile very nicely. It took about half a roll to complete my kitchen, and I have plenty left in case any portion gets damaged. If you're willing to put in the time, this is a wonderfully cost-effective upgrade and it looks great." —Caitlin

    Price: $5.99

    9. Or a roll of water-resistant wood grain contact paper that can be used to line your shelves or to update your countertops, desks, and dressers.

    Target

    Promising review: "I’ve had this wooden coffee table for a year now that I’ve been neglecting. I was just dusting it and wiping it down with a damp cloth, so it was starting to look kind of dull. I wanted something that would make it shine without leaving behind a greasy residue. This cleaner was exactly what I wanted, and it smells really nice!" —shibaqueen

    Price: $3.79

    11. An adjustable wire storage rack you can mount on a wall or hang over a door depending on whether you need help organizing your kitchen pantry or your hall closet!

    Promising review: "I got these about a month ago, and I’m extremely happy with them. The whole concept it pretty genius. If this carpet gets a stain that won’t come out, I can just replace a single tile instead of the whole room. These are good quality and install very easily, just peel and stick." —Raypensfan

    Price: $35.28+ (available in nine colors)

    14. A complete wall repair kit to patch up that little hole in the wall where you attempted hanging a 50-lb. gold mirror you found for free on Craigslist. I mean, it was worth the try.

    Target

    This kit includes spackling, self-adhesive tape, a putty knife, and sandpaper.

    Got a bigger hole you need to cover up? Check out this repair kit!

    Promising review: "I've used it for nail holes, larger empty anchor holes, small patch jobs, and as filler where our towel rack was forced out. I've used it in kitchen, bathroom, hallway, bedroom, and living room. Not a problem anywhere. It does get harder to get out as there is less product, but that's to be expected. I used my plastic spackle tool to run over the outside of the tube to bring it to the top. I will use this again and recommend highly for its ease of use." —Kimberly

    Price: $8.39

    15. A durable power scrubber because the black grout in your bathroom used to be white. You can also use it to scrub grease off your stove and dirt off your tires.

    Promising review: "I never knew I’d love a cleaning device as much as this little thing. It is awesome! After not cleaning my kitchen for many months, the grease buildup on my kitchen counter was disgusting and hard to remove. I tried everything. This power scrubber helped immensely! I’ve even purchased two as gifts because it’s such a great thing to have!" —Yesi

    Price: $4.99

    Target

    Promising review: "I love my new handles! They were easy to install and made a huge difference in my kitchen. The price was super nice as well. We got handles for the kitchen and all the bathroom cabinets for way cheaper than we would've at hardware stores. I did have to get longer screws for the drawers but it was an inexpensive addition." —Tricia

    Price: $17.99 (silver) and $19.69 (chestnut)

    19. Or a cordless tool combo kit that will come in handy for repairing your deck, making custom furniture, and replacing vent covers throughout your house. The Property Brothers would be lucky to have you.

    Price: $149.99

    20. A black gallery wall set complete with seven varied frames so you can customize any wall in your home with pictures and artwork hung in an eye-catching array.

    Target

    Promising review: "It always takes me forever to buy picture frames for prints, photos, and postcards; it's an annoying task that I dread. So once my pile of to-be-framed pieces was high enough, I finally decided to order some frames from Target. I was so pleasantly surprised when I found this set. It was probably designed for people looking to make a "gallery wall" in their home, but also works great for procrastinators like me who hate picture frame shopping! I was able to frame most of my items with just this one set. The frames are all good quality, so I'm really happy this was available. Great value." —mmmzane

    Price: $35

    21. And a pack of Command strips because if you're anything like me (read: clumsy and bad at crafts), you're not gonna want to get a hammer and nails involved in hanging your gallery wall up.

    Target

    Promising review: "These work great if you follow the instructions and install them properly! I’ve used them to hang wall shelves, mirrors, and art. I've even used them with the decorative hooks to make my own curtain rod holders." —amber

    Price: $3.49

    22. A pack of two dimmable under-the-cabinet LED lights so you can go to the kitchen for your midnight snack without facing the harshness of your overhead light. And use its remote control to change the colors because kitchens deserve mood lighting, too.

    Target

    Heads up: these lights require AA batteries that are not included!

    Promising review: "Very cool little light bars. I like that there are two in the package, and that the remote control included will control both of them. You don't even have to aim the remote at the light bars, which is great if you're placing the bars in an area where they will be hidden behind something. You can mount them to your wall or surface using sticky tape or screws, and both of these materials are included." —DawnG578

    Price: $26.99

    23. A sturdy multi-use ladder you can easily configure to your DIY needs. From a stairway stepladder to an extension ladder, you'll be able to change your lightbulbs, paint your ceilings, and level out those family portraits on your stairway wall.

    Price: $39.99

    27. A cordless Dyson vacuum so lightweight, you won't have to worry about breaking your back as you carry it around the house to clean different rooms. Just charge this vac, and take it for a deep-cleaning spin!

    Promising review: "This vacuum is lightweight, offers the "boost" suction features, has a variety of attachments for all surfaces and spaces, and is cordless! I love the results on wood, tile, area rugs, outdoor decks, and in vehicles. The results are so outstanding that I now realize how ineffective my previous vacuums were.

    Price: $12.99

    29. An electric pressure washer for hosing the dirt and grime right off your car, boat, fence, patio, and more. You'll feel like a superhero blasting all that stubborn sludge away!

I find it difficult to find good tools that can be used by someone like myself who does not have great strength to carry around outdoor appliances, but this washer was easy to handle and it got the job done on my front deck. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a lighter machine that also gets the job done!" —jojowi

    Price: $159
