    1. This yolk separator that'll easily gulp up egg yolks, while leaving the whites untouched. Squeeze the soft silicone cheeks, bring the mouth to the yolk, and release — easy peasy!

    Amazon / Via

    It might seem gimmicky, but it's not! Made of food-grade silicone, it's totally nonstick, and wonderfully easy to clean. Reviewers say there's a bit of a learning curve to getting it just right, but once you do, it's smooth sailing.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.

    2. An eyeglass repair kit that's small enough to keep on your person at all times, so you're never faced with an eyewear-related emergency ever again. Those of us who wear glasses know the pain of losing one of those teeny, tiny screws, and realizing it'll cost you a trip to the optometrist.

    Amazon / Via

    I keep this kit in my nightstand and have fixed COUNTLESS pairs of glasses. I like that it's tiny, so I can pack it into my carry-on bag when I travel, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $12.25.

    3. This aluminum egg topper and cracker that'll make Sunday morning brunch a lot less messy. It's pretty easy to use, too — pop the metal top onto your egg, pull the handle, and then nudge the shell with a sharp utensil. The eggshell cap will come right off!

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say you may need to adjust your technique based on egg size, but that otherwise this wonky little tool is a must-have in any kitchen.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.25.

    4. A salt grater, so you can have precise control over the amount of sodium you put in your food. Plus, who doesn't love a little pageantry with their meal?

    @kikkerland / Via

    Reviewers say that this method produces a much finer grind, so they can dust much less salt on their food. The rasp is made of stainless steel, too, so it won't rust after a few uses. And each set comes with a hefty chunk of Himalayan pink salt and a beechwood stand.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.31.

    5. A universal shower filter with over 3,000 reviews that drastically reduces the amount of chlorine, bad smells, and gunk that can sometimes be present in our tap water. The multi-stage filter can be installed in as little as two minutes without any tools!

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say they've noticed a visible improvement in their hair and skin texture, and that it's even helped mitigate the symptoms of eczema.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.68.

    6. These herb-saving pods that'll keep them looking fresh and feelin' fine for up to three weeks. The protective casing acts as a buffer, so they're not battered around by all the things in your fridge, while the transparent front allows you to see exactly what's inside.

    @officialprepara / Via

    Pat your herbs dry and pop them in the pod. Add a smidge of water to the base, and that's it! The only thing you need to do is swap the water out every 3-5 days. Reviewers say it even works on asparagus!

    Get a set of three on Amazon Canada for $38.01 (also available as a single pod).

    7. This mild, non-stinging mouth wash that won't burn or make your eyes water. The natural and vegan formula is hard on bad breath, but easy on your mouth. Reviewers say it's super effective against stubborn food odours (like onion), and has even helped combat tonsil stones!

    @therabreath / Via

    It's non acidic, too, so it won't damage your enamel. And it even helps stop dry mouth symptoms! Go forth and gargle, my friends.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $41.12.

    8. This clothespin clip light that attaches to the edge of your fave novel, and delivers light precisely where you need it. The compact size makes it ideal for travelling or commuting, too.

    Amazon / Via

    The clip design is not only cute, but functional. Reviewers say it keeps the pages from flapping around if you're ever reading on the beach, in the park, or anywhere else gusty. Make sure you toss a few extra batteries into your cart, too!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $8.98.

    9. These gel heel liners from Dr. Scholl's that are basically a miracle blister-prevention tool for anyone with feet (aka everyone). They attach to the back of your shoes, preventing your heel from rubbing against abrasive threading or sharp edges. And the glue is fabric safe, too, so you won't ruin your favourite footwear in the process.

    Amazon / Via, Victoria Kuglin / Via BuzzFeed

    I've also used them to improve the fit of shoes that I either bought just a teensy bit big (the sale was too good, okay?), or that just got stretched out over time. While Dr. Scholl's offers patterned liners, too, I prefer the transparent gel ones — especially in low-top shoes like Converse, or in sandals.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $8.99.

    10. A pet bathing tool that'll make your pupper's bathtime a lot less stressful (for both you AND your pet). Your doggo will think you're petting them, but IN REALITY, you'll be giving them a thorough scrubbin'.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love how much easier bathing their pets has become, without the need for filling and draining a tub. Plus, the petting motion is a lot more soothing than a standard bath.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $36.95.

    12. This flexible drain millipede that will help you snake a clogged drain with ease. The 4,000 micro-hooks will snag any gunk before it causes unfortunate plumbing problems. And with an extendable length of up to 18 inches, it'll wind around any bends and curves with ease.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.95 (available in two colours).

    13. This miraculous cleaning goo that'll suck up all the dust and crumbs from between the buttons on your keyboard. The slightly tacky and biodegradable material is lightly scented with lemon, and won't irritate skin.

    Amazon / Via

    The best part is that it can be used over and over again — when the goo starts to get dark and grimy, it's time to replace.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    14. A salad chopper and bowl that can cut through cheese, veggies, fruit, and lettuce, so you can craft the perfect healthy meal with ease. Reviewers say it's a must-have if you're trying to eat more greens.

    @breville / Via, Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $92.98.
