    53 Small Things That'll Make A *Really* Big Difference In Your Life

    Hiccup-curing straws, indestructible tape, budgeting envelopes, and more!

    1. A pack of tiny Velcro dots that'll help you stick your stuff to other stuff (what a concept!). They have a strong adhesive backing and are so small, nobody but you will know they're there.

    2. A set of budgeting envelopes so you can keep a closer eye on your stacks. To make things even easier, they're waterproof, tear-proof, and colour-coded, so you'll always know how much dough you're working with each month.

    3. A plush steering wheel cover if you're tired of driving with frozen, stiff fingers. Reviewers say it works so well, they've even been able to skip out on wearing gloves during winter drives.

    4. A pack of peroxide-free whitening strips that'll brighten your chompers in just a few minutes without damaging your enamel or irritating your gums. Reviewers reported zero sensitivity and love the flavour, too (courtesy of all-natural coconut extract).

    5. A cult-favourite ChomChom Roller that'll rid your furniture of stray fur in just a few swipes. It doesn't involve any sticky paper and can be used over and over again, making it *way* more eco-friendly than traditional rollers.

    6. A colour-changing egg timer that'll help you make perfect oeufs every time. By absorbing the heat from the boiling water, you'll see the cooking process in real time so you'll know exactly when your eggs are ready to plate.

    7. A silicone toiletry organizer that'll make you wonder why you ever used other shower caddies. Firstly, it'll never get rusty or slimy. Second, it'll expand to fit basically all your products (and yes, I tried).

    8. A tub of Sudocrem if your skin is having its own little breakdown right now (honestly, same). Reviewers say it soothes and heals almost any skin condition—so much so, they're calling it liquid gold.

    9. A roll of weatherproofing tape that'll keep chilly winds out and cozy temps in. Installation is simple (just peel and stick), and reviewers say it does an amazing job of blocking out unpleasant smells and outside noise, too.

    10. A Waterpik flosser that's easier to maneuver and more effective than regular floss. It uses water to blast away gross stuff between your teeth and below the gum line, leaving you with a seriously clean mouth.

    11. A hand blender that'll help you whip up something tasty in less time than it takes to say, "Hey, I could eat." It's mega powerful and can whisk up 25 bowls of soup on a single charge, which means more time blending and less time powering up.

    12. A set of Command cable organizers if all your cords are staging a hostile takeover of your home. Since they're super flexible, you can use them for thin lil' wires and bigger bundles alike.

    13. A pair of absorbent puff balls so you can dry off your grabbers without soaking your bath towels. Reviewers say they suck up a *lot* of moisture (while doubling as cute washroom decor).

    14. A salt spreader that'll help you get rid of every last inch of snow and ice on your sidewalk. It has a locking mechanism in the lid, so you won't have to worry about it making a mess in your house if it gets knocked over.

    16. A pack of earlobe support patches if your fave bling is starting to drag down your look. They're totally invisible and reviewers love that they can get multiple wears out of each one.

    17. A pair of Loop earplugs for anyone who wants some peace and quiet. They don't totally block sound, instead helping to filter out excessively loud noise, so you can still enjoy a concert (without your ears ringing for hours afterwards).

    18. A pack of museum putty that'll lock your gorgeous displays in place and save you from accidentally smashing your fave vase. Reviewers say it's absolute must-have for anyone with kids or pets (cats can be such lil' jerks sometimes).

    20. A stick of Tide To Go that'll tackle teensy stains in a flash. The chiseled marker-like tip makes application precise and simple (and one pen can last you several years).

    21. A pack of shower curtain clips if you're sick of your curtain flapping open every time you wanna take a toasty shower (is that too much to ask?!). Their adhesive backing makes them a snap to install, too.

    33. A pair of motion-sensing nightlights that'll light the way the next time you're up for a midnight tinkle. Their unique shape will free up the second plug, so you won't have to use up your entire outlet.

    34. A rechargeable reading lamp so you can read your fave novel without blinding yourself with the overheads (or waking your slumbering partner).

    35. A packet of dishwasher-cleaning tablets that'll help you revive (and de-gunk) your smelly old machine. They'll slowly dissolve during the cleaning cycle, melting away icky buildup and saving you from having to scrub the whole damn thing by hand.

    37. A handheld vacuum so you can suck up tiny dirt particles and debris without dragging out your full-sized cleaning equipment. It even comes with a 2-in-1 crevice tool so crumbs won't have anywhere to hide.

    40. A bottle of texturizing dust that'll give your strands some major lift and keep your look from falling flat throughout the day. It'll never clump your hair together or leave it looking lank, so you go ahead and layer it on whenever you want to take your mane sky-high.

    43. A Revlon One-Step Root Booster brush that's low-key a dupe for the Dyson Airwrap round brush attachment. It's a smaller and rounder than its volumizing sibling, but that's what makes it great for short-haired folks or anyone with bangs.

    44. An adjustable measuring spoon if you're tired of constantly fishing around for the *exact* one you need. It's also way more precise than your current set and has measurements for both wet and dry ingredients.

    45. A pair of whiskey glasses with built-in ice moulds that won't dilute your expensive booze. The trick lies in the wedge-shaped ice that'll melt way slower than regular cubes—cheers🥂 to perfectly chilled drinks!

    48. A cute jar spatula so you can scrape all the tasty goodness out of your containers (and then spread 'em on your toast!). Reviewers say it's the perfect balance of bendy and firm, making it great for everything from chunky peanut butter to BBQ sauce.

    49. A tube of anti-friction foot balm that'll stop your winter boots from chafing your tender feeties. It's even got a smidge of apricot kernel oil to help your skin heal after a whole day of snow shovelling.

    50. An instant-read meat thermometer that'll let you know when the roast is done. Some of reviewers' fave features include the backlit screen (*chef's kiss* for nighttime barbecuing), pop-out probe, and magnetic backing.

    51. A pair of hand masks if your fingies are feeling a wee bit crispy lately. They're totally unscented and packed with soothing ingredients (like oat extract), so they're ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.

    52. A mini food processor that's about to become your kitchen MVP. Even though it's a fraction of the size (and weight) of its full-sized cousin, it doesn't scrimp on power—this baby can blitz *all* your ingredients in minutes.

    53. And lastly, a 4K Fire TV stick that'll let you access all your streaming platforms in one place. Since it's Alexa-enabled, you'll be able to pause, play, or simply search for your fave show without having to scroll for ages.
