    1. A pack of light-dimming stickers that'll help soften the glare on your light-up gadgets (so you can finally get some rest). The best part is that they won't block out the light entirely, so you'll still be able to read your alarm clock in the middle of the night.

    "Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis
