    1. Sock-pairing clips that'll ensure single socks never get lost again in the Bermuda Triangle that is your dryer. You always double or triple check the inside of the machine and YET!!! Socks still go missing!!! No more.


    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    2. A box of pimple patches to absorb (or cover up) massive zits that always show up right before a job interview. If you feel like your own skin is out to get you, I can relate.


    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. Does not cause drying or flaking." —Robin V.

    Get a 36-pack from Amazon for $12.10.

    3. Double shower hooks for anyone who's ever lamented, "But why can't I switch my curtain and liner separately?!"


    Promising review: "I'm so happy to no longer have to deal with the shower curtain or liner falling off of the hook. I love the fact that the double hook allows me to remove either the liner or shower curtain without the hassle of removing both. I don't know why I waited so long to order these." —Tanner L.

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three finishes).

    4. No-crease hair ties so you can take out that messy bun in the middle of the day and not be left with a weird bump.


    Promising review: "I really love these hair ties! They hold your hair efficiently without pulling or causing a headache. They also do not leave a crease in your hair, and they come out easily. So far, they have gone back to their original shape each time, even though I stretch them out when they are in my hair." —P. McKinney

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. A pack of clear bumper stickers that'll make it pretty much impossible to make a slamming noise in your home. Stick some inside your cabinets or under the toilet seat, and you won't be woken up by your roomie at 7 in the morning again.

    Photo collage of the transparent stickers applied on different surfaces

    Promising review: "So my parents’ bathroom cabinets make a lot of noise and are all missing bumpers in the corners of the doors and on the frames. I put these on the other day and life is sweeter without having to hear the cabinet doors slamming or closing each time they’re opened. With the bumpers being clear and not of a color, it’s also aesthetically pleasing." —KW

    Get a 300-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. Soft furniture socks to prevent your tables and chairs from scratching up the hardwood floors and making that ear-piercing screeching sound.

    Promising review: "I have chairs with wrought-iron legs and just got ceramic tile. I hate the sound of the chairs scraping across the floor. NOW THE CHAIRS GLIDE ACROSS THE FLOOR. The feet of the chairs are ornate but these socks fit and stay on." —Dancing Phalanges

    Get a 32-pack from Amazon for $16.59.

    7. A silicone case for your earbuds so you don't have to untangle them every. single. time. Are there little gnomes secretly tying up the cords in your pocket? Who knows.

    Promising review: "My headphones fit perfectly AND I have the ones with the mic. Very simple to use, and it fits in my purse and pocket!" —Patutii

    Get it from Amazon for $9.37+ (available two sizes and four colors).

    8. An overflow drain cover, because all you want is a full bath without having to refill every five minutes — is that too much to ask?!

    The transparent cover blocking an overflow drain, with a hole at the top to release water a few inches higher

    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths, enjoy more relaxing warm coziness... all because of this little bit of silicone!" —anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    9. Self-tying shoelaces, if nothing makes your blood boil more than slippery knots that come apart after a few steps. In contrast, these will never come undone unless you want them to.


    Promising review: "I have these sneakers that I rarely wear, and when I do, I get so annoyed because the laces come off all the time. But I do love the sneakers. These lock laces are so great — whoever invented them should be getting a humanitarian award for helping people." —Inday G.

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven color combos).

    10. An eyeliner stamp so getting perfectly matching wings doesn't take, like, an hour. No more throwing your eyeliner across the room in a fit of rage. That was the old you.


    One side is a winged stamp and the other side is a regular eyeliner pen.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings... but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    11. A headache-relief essential oil blend for stressful days at the office where nothing is going right and everyone is getting on your nerves. The soothing combo of peppermint, Spanish sage, cardamom, ginger, and fennel will help calm you right down.

    Promising review: "I got a lot of compliments when I put this in my oil diffuser at work. It smells great and keeps me calm in the mayhem of my office, especially since they always give me headaches." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    12. A clothes folder, because somehow just washing and drying our laundry is not enough, we also have to fold everything?! Ugh. At least this nifty tool will help make the task a lot more tolerable.

    A step-by-step image on how to use the perforated folder

    It can be adjusted to accommodate thicker pieces like sweaters.

    Promising review: "You would think folding is simple, but with this product, it's a perfect fold every time. It makes a pile of clothing so compact. Everything is uniformly folded. Makes putting clothes in drawers so much neater and more orderly. It makes my life easier." —S. Erhart

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    13. A pair of seat-gap fillers that'll save you from the agonizing process of retrieving your dropped phone from the unreachable crevice.

    These Drop Stop seat gap fillers were originally featured on Shark Tank!

    Promising review: "I have bought about six of these for myself and friends/family. Cell phones, wallets, keys, change, and everything else doesn't fall through. I will not have another car without it. I was in a friend's car, and my phone dropped through the seat. He got a Drop Stop the next day." —kellen

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A jewelry fastener so you can easily close a bracelet on the first try, even if there's no one around to lend you a hand.

    A pair of hands using the fastener, which is pen-sized stick with a metal clip on one end,  to attach a bracelet

    Promising review: "Wonderful helper! I don't know how I fastened a bracelet before ordering this. Each time I use it, it seems to be easier to use." —LuAnne B.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in four colors).

    15. A pack of elastic fasteners for preventing fitted sheets from popping off your bed in the middle of the night. If you toss and turn a lot or just have a really slippery/thick mattress, these might help resolve your woes.

    The elastic fastener features two metal clips on each side to grip the fitted sheet

    Promising review: "These ended the nightly fight over the fitted sheet. :) We have a double thick mattress that was too firm so we added a Costco four-inch memory foam topper. Our sheets have deep pockets but they couldn't keep up. I didn't want to replace all the sheets so I bought these. They work great and grab hold tightly without coming off or putting a hole in the sheets." —Tanya

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    16. A pack of bra strap holders, because nothing is more annoying than pulling up your bra straps for the 30th time.

    The elastic holder attached to two bra staps in the back of a model

    These can also convert bras to be worn with halter and racerback tops.

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $6.97 (available in five color combos).

    17. Shower curtain clips to close that curtain/wall gap so the warm steam doesn't leak out, resulting in a chilly draft. Shower time is sacred and must be protected at all costs.


    Promising review: "We live in a small apartment that is a converted attic space. As such we have slanted ceilings throughout different spaces. One such space was in the shower where at the end there were six or so inches that the shower curtain did not reach. It was not a huge issue in the summer because it was hot, and I needed a little fresh air, however, as it started to cool down, I was losing precious steamy warm air out of this giant gap. I saw this product in a BuzzFeed article, and it was exactly what I was looking for! The adhesive is very strong but the curtain itself is easy to remove to open. I only used one and it was strong enough to keep the whole side of the wall blocked." —starvingcollegestudent

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $7.69.

    18. A set of packing cubes so you don't have to tear the suitcase apart looking for that one sweater that you're SURE you packed. Now, you can easily see which cube it's packed inside.

    Promising review: "What a game-changer in packing. No more underwear and bras flying everywhere in your bag. I don't know how I ever packed without these. They feel sturdy and my suitcase feels more organized and sooo much more room left." —Ruthye

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $21.99 (available in 15 colors).

    19. A bottle-emptying stand for getting every last bit of the ketchup without having to shake it a LOT.


    Promising review: "I like getting the last bit of whatever out of my bottles. These hold them upright without having to set them against something and them falling over." —Amazon Customer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.99. Or, check out another option.

    20. A pair of noise-isolating headphones, because your desk-mate is somehow the loudest typer on this planet. CLICK CLICK CLICK — no more.


    Promising review: "We have short walls at my job and I needed headphones to keep down the distractions while working. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I work easier at my desk playing soft music through my headphones without listening to co-workers talking. They are very soft on my ears and the sound is clear. Great battery life. I would definitely recommend these headphones." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in six colors).

    It's our cheap pick for the best over-ear Bluetooth headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    21. An adjustable baggy rack to hold storage bags open while you scoop food into them (which means less spillage on the counter and the floor, less cleanup, and less annoyance in general).


    It folds down flat so it can fit into any kitchen gadget drawer.

    Promising review: "I use this thing way more than I thought I would. It's genius and something that you didn't know you needed until you use it. When I cook, I put food waste and scraps into a plastic bag, so they don't stink in my trash. This inexpensive, simple device is awesome. It solves that annoying problem of continually having to hold open the bag when putting scraps into it. I know, I know... first world problems, but seriously, when your hands are dirtied from cutting/prepping raw meat, I don't want to have to touch anything else." —CarDude

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    22. A bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray so no one in the household has to breathe in each other's fumes.


    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H

    Get a four-ounce bottle from Amazon for $11.64 (available in seven sizes and 20 scents).

    23. A bag carrier for transporting all the groceries from the car to the front door in *one* trip rather than several.


    Promising review: "It seems silly, but having to lug in multiple bags in a shopping trip can be a huge hassle, especially if you live in an apartment complex and have to walk up flights of stairs. And of course, no one wants to make two trips (or god forbid, three or four) to get all of your stuff inside. The Mighty Handle is a great solution to this problem: you can hang all of your bags of groceries (or clothes, or shoes, or anything you can think of) on these handles and then only have to hold one (or two) handles to take everything with you. You can also use the Mighty Handle to hang your bags on and then twist the handles together so your stuff doesn't all spill out in the trunk. A simple solution to an annoying problem." —Elaina

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A mug warmer, because running to the microwave every 20 minutes to reheat your coffee is not fun at all. Some of us drink very slowly, okay?!


    Promising review: "I'm a very slow tea/coffee drinker, so having this mini hot plate is amazing. I can have hot tea until the last sip! Life-changing. I use it every day. I'm using it as I write this review. I drink more tea because I know it won't get cold and sad. My roommates all want one now." —PDT

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    25. A bottle of Goo Gone to remove sticky residue leftover from price stickers and labels, because no matter how careful you are while peeling them off, you can't seem to get them to come off cleanly. (Why are stickers designed like this?! I demand answers.)

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of Goo Gone (#1 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "Since purchasing Goo Gone, I’ve cleaned off several candle tins, a Trader Joe's growler, and a kimchi jar previously marred by sticky labels — they can now be reused as pen holders and food containers! In fact, now I'm constantly looking around my apartment to see what I can Goo Gone (yes, I'm using it as a verb) and reuse. Definitely one of my best household purchases EVER." —Yi Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $7.21.

    26. A spill stopper that'll stop the pasta from boiling over behind your back because you're tired of scrubbing the stovetop (yet again!).


    It's made of heavy silicone that's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Wow, wow, wow. I have no words to describe how great this product is. I'm a mom with a large family that cooks and bakes all the time. There is never a time that something doesn't spill over even when standing and watching the pot, but with this, life has just gotten easy. I think I'm throwing out all my pot covers after using this. I am mess-free." —Rackel

    Get it from Amazon for $16.80+ (available in three colors).

    27. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets for restoring your stainless steel thermos to a brand new state (you know, the one that's still not completely clean no matter how many times you wash it). The best part? No scrubbing required!

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    28. Peel-and-stick cable clips, because if you have to climb under the desk ONE MORE TIME to retrieve the charging cord, you're gonna lose it.


    Promising review: "These things work great! I have them spread out through my office to my home. At my desk, they keep the cables that I need to stay on the desk there and they are practically invisible. Definitely recommend these if you are looking to get your cables a little more organized!" —Pierce Gainey

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.49.

    29. A document clip to give your poor neck some much-needed relief. It'll hold your papers right next to the computer monitor for easy viewing and make work way less tedious.

    Reviewer photo of the clip holding a document, which is attached to a computer monitor

    It holds up to 30 sheets of paper and can swing back and forth.

    Promising review: "This lightweight arm holds at least 20 pages without falling out. I use this to prioritize things I need to get done and it keeps me from losing paper in piles. I have neck issues because I am constantly looking down and this keeps my head up and makes data entry easier because it's right next to the screen. It also pivots so I can adjust the angle." —Life Is Short

    Get it from Amazon for $8.47.

    30. A pair of truly squat-proof leggings that won't betray you in the middle of a workout by becoming semi-transparent or slipping down your butt (like basically all your other ones). They actually look and feel expensive so you can stock up on several colors.


    Promising review: "Not only are they squat-proof but they are comfy. If you’re looking for a great pair of workout leggings, definitely give these a chance. I’m a kinesiology student and activewear is a must when we are conducting our assessments and labs. I was in class one day talking about my leggings issue, and noticed one of my classmates wearing what I thought were Lululemon leggings. That’s when she told me that they were from Amazon by a brand named Tsla. I checked them out and for about a couple of weeks I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted to give them a try since I’m really picky about my leggings. But in the end I gave in and I’m so glad I did. Now I have four pairs of leggings under $60, instead of only two for $200 (Lululemon). I call that a GREAT DEAL!" —FamilyCox

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 45 styles/colors).

    31. A reusable makeup-erasing cloth for when you're tired and a multi-step skincare routine just isn't going to happen. Simply add a little water, wipe, and you're done.

    Just toss it in the washer when it gets dirty and it'll be as good as new!

    Promising review: "Amazing! This baby removed all my makeup including waterproof mascara. The cloth is super soft and I didn't need to wipe hard to remove everything. Wiped twice just to make sure all the makeup was gone. Best thing is all you need is water! Washed it by hand after use, and it was as good as new." —Lucy

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $20.

    This is our mid-priced pick for the best makeup remover on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    32. A pet hair–removing roller because while you love your four-legged friend, their fur has managed to cover everything you own. Now you can finally restore the couch to its original color.

    It has 3,000 five-star reviews! This roller doesn't use adhesive sheets — it has a special lint-trapping surface that can be reused over and over again!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    33. A privacy filter to fend off your nosy co-workers who just HAVE to see what's on your screen. (Lol, you're actually reading this post but it's still none of their business!)

    Promising review: "The anti-glare helps a lot as my workplace has very bright lights. It was very easy to install and it protects my privacy from my nosy colleagues. All in all, completely worth buying." —Jeanette Luu

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in a variety of sizes).
