11. An adorable owl kitchen mat that'll make doing the dishes feel like a hoot.

Promising review: "I always get tired of the same ol' fruit and wine designs on kitchen rugs.

So glad to see these new designs." —mrblueuGet it from Walmart for $5.

I wasn't pleased with the 1/2 cup storage bowls until I used them for sending snacks in lunches. We've donated all our other storage bowls and now only use these." —adizzybizGet them from Walmart for $9.12.
