    44 Problem-Solving Things That I Think Are Probably Going To Make Your Life Easier

    "You're the real MVP." —Me, to these super useful products.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A natural yet effective stain remover — it might be your only hope of eliminating those year-old grease splatters from your formerly favorite shirt (that you couldn't bring yourself to throw away because you've been waiting for a miracle product to rescue it).

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    I have this stain remover, and it has rescued many, many pieces of clothing that would have otherwise been ruined. Read my full review of the Puracy stain remover!

    Promising review: "I have tried several stain removers and have to say this stuff really does remove stains. It's removed blood, grape juice, baby barf (we had a baby with severe reflux), chocolate, grass stains, sweat stains, melon, pretty much everything. The only thing it hasn't been able to remove was mashed banana, weirdly enough. My mother-in-law tried it, and she loved it and couldn't believe how well it worked. I have to say I was almost shocked at how well this worked. If you are wondering if it is really worth the price, it is. My wife says they should rename it to 'Chill Mom' because she no longer worries about stains at all, and she says that is priceless when you have a very curious and adventurous little boy who keeps finding new ways to get dirty." —Martin Isaksen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    2. A pet hair–removing roller that'll actually get rid of the layer of fur covering...well, pretty much everything in sight. You love your furry friend, but it would be nice to see the original color of the couch again!

    youtube.com

    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.

    3. An eyeliner stamp so getting matching wings isn't such a drawn-out ordeal.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 $11.28.

    4. Silicone sleeves for securing your glasses in place all day while also providing a bit of cushioning for your ears.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issue. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. Purchased these and what a difference, my glasses have never fit better, and often times I forget to take them off, they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    Get five-pairs from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A wood polish and conditioner made of beeswax and orange oil to completely transform your old cabinets and tables. Water marks, begone!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    6. A weighted blanket that might help anxious sleepers get a good night's rest. It's designed to simulate the soothing pressure of being hugged.

    Macy's

    These blankets are filled with non-toxic weighted glass beads and then quilted in to prevent shifting. The cover is made of Hygro cotton — this kind of cotton features yarn with a hollow core, making it more breathable and softer wash after wash. It's also moisture-wicking and can keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $139.99+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A latex polish barrier so you can paint outside the lines and then peel the excess product right off. It's honestly a very ~a-peel-ing~ product (sorry).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you do nail art or want to perfect your nail polishing skills, this is the product for you. Easy to use, dries sparkly so you know it’s dry, easy peel-off in one piece, and a clean finish. I do a lot of nail art and stamping. Some of the stamping polishes are really hard to get off the cuticle but with this, they come off cleanly. Helps when I do my toes, too, if I get a little messy, the mess comes off with the latex. You can also switch the brush so you don’t waste the bottle when the brush gets clumpy." —Diannah S.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    8. A pack of Mighty Patch pimple patches for helping to absorb giant zits overnight so you don't have to deal with them in the morning.

    amazon.com

    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 $12.50.

    9. An anti-chafing stick to soothe and moisturize sweaty and sticky areas on your body (like inner thighs), because you should be able to rock those fabulous summer frocks free of irritation.

    instagram.com

    This vegan product doesn't contain any petroleum, lanolin, or mineral oils.

    Promising review: "This is my GO-TO product for thigh chafe. Seriously ladies. It lasts forever, and it's worth the price. I've worn it all day, after one application, while walking at Disneyland, used it for running 5Ks, and wear it for everyday summer skirts and dresses. I've even started using it on my heels for tight shoes. Great find and product!" —CollegeGirlBookSeller

    Get it from Amazon for $8+ (available in two sizes).

    10. Or, anti-chafe lace bands that'll serve the same purpose while looking extremely pretty.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnight and wear dresses regularly to the office, I've been using the deodorant style anti-chafing rubs and wanted a longer lasting option. Ding Ding ladies!! This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable 'digging in.'

    They do take some fine tuning to make sure that they don't roll, but once you find that spot, they don't move! I got the lacy ones and they are sexy and soft to the touch with the silicone on the top and bottom." —A. Spencer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six sizes and 14 colors).

    11. Poo-Pourri toilet spray so there's absolutely no trace of offensive odors left in the bathroom after a number two. Just spritz into the toilet bowl before you go and *poof* no more stinky smells!

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. 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 two-ounce bottle from Amazon for $8.76 (available in 20 scents).

    12. 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!

    amazon.com

    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.

    13. A pack of cleaning tablets to remove the lime and mineral build-up (as well any food residue) in your dishwasher, leaving it clean and odor-free.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $4.44.

    14. A lightweight and cruelty-free eye shadow primer that'll work overtime to ensure your makeup stays creaseless and smudge-free all day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is the bomb! I have super oily eyelids and work 12-hour shifts. This keeps my shadow from creasing for at least 10 hours. You don't need a lot of it, as stated in other reviews." —C. Kemp

    Get it from Amazon for $13.06.

    15. A liquid ant bait so you can finally get rid of the tiny invaders plaguing your home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our house gets ants really bad beginning in the spring and they continue. My sister told me about these ant baits many years ago. As long as I use the Terro Ant Baits and place fresh ones when the ants begin, I have none to very few throughout the spring, summer and fall. I ran out this spring and didn't buy anymore until last week. I tried using ant sprays around the perimeter of the house and shed at least once a month. Whenever I opened windows or went into the shed, I still had lots of ants. They were taking over the bathroom and living room, even when I didn't have windows open. I replenished my Terro Ant Bait supply last week and within one day, the ants are non-existent except in the bait trays. When the tray is very dark with all the ants feeding, leave it alone and they will take the chemical back to the nest, helping eliminate ants. I won't run out again!" —Stickerlady59

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    16. A beauty spatula for digging out the very last bits of expensive products that get trapped inside the bottle. No more waste!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fantastic product. I'm able to get every drop out of my very expensive face cream. Works on bottles, jars, etc. Only wish I would have bought this product years ago. Oh, the money I could have saved." —HMSK

    Get it from Amazon for $6.12.

    17. Soft furniture socks to prevent your tables and chairs from scratching up the hardwood floors and making that annoying screeching sound.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these chair socks! I didn’t know they were even a thing until I was searching for a solution to my floors getting scratched! I used the felt pads for years but they fall off, or my kids lean back in the chairs so the corners scratch even with a pad. No more scratches since we switched to the chair socks! I barely notice them. Another benefit is we have an elderly pug who is losing her sight and runs into things a lot, and the socks cushion the blow on the bottom few inches of the chair legs." —MamaMoRx

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. A TubShroom that's the fierce drain guardian your bathroom deserves — it'll catch every strand of hair without blocking the water flow. No more clogged pipes, no more standing in a puddle of soapy water.

    Amazon

    I recently bought one of these and I can't believe I've waited all these years! I used to have a traditional strainer that would block the water flow as soon as a few hairs got caught in it (and I would have to fish out a clump of hair every five minutes or so). No more! This gadget catches all the hairs (so you don't end up with a clogged drain) and still allows the water to go down. I literally cannot stop talking about it.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had." —Lawyer For Justice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors). Also, check out the SinkShroom and the ShowerShroom.

    19. A stretchy buckle-free belt so you can enjoy all the benefits of a regular belt sans the annoying bump under shirts.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love being buckle-free. Never liked the buckle bulge that buckles created. Plus, it's so much easier to not have to open a buckle when removing my jeans, and the belt stays in place. I can highly recommend this product." —C. SMITH

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two sizes and five colors).

    20. A set of storage containers for extending the life of fruits and veggies so you actually get a chance to finish everything in the fridge before it goes bad. Yup, it's basically a miracle pod.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    These are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Read our review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers!

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $23.96.

    21. 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
    amazon.com

    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 $7.69.

    22. An essential oil stick that'll work its magic when a mid-day migraine strikes. Nothing but sweet, sweet relief here!

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of the Migrastil headache relief stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    23. A detangler clasp so you can layer your delicate necklaces without worrying about them getting all twisted together.

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

    Amazon

    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 $9.99 (available in three finishes).

    25. A seat gap filler to prevent your phone, French fries, and quarters from sliding into the unreachable abyss.

    amazon.com

    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.

    26. A draft stopper that'll prevent precious cool air from escaping the room. It'll help you make the most out of your AC and save on electric bills.

    27. A handy device so you and your roomie can both keep track of whether or not the doggo has been fed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.94.

    28. A bracelet holder for anyone who has tackled their own arm to the ground just to put a piece of jewelry on.

    Amazon

    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 $5.99+ (available in four colors).

    29. A pack of elastic fasteners as the ultimate solution for sheets that just won't stay put.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These sheet straps are the best purchase I have ever made. I bought a new bed and had to put a thick mattress protector on it for the warranty to remain active, so my sheets fit very snugly. I toss and turn a lot and my dog moves around a lot, so the sheets were always coming off the corner. I bought these, and it only took a couple minutes to put on. It’s been a week and my sheets have stayed in place. This was the perfect simple and cheap solution for a major annoyance." —Shariece

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $8.99.

    30. Sock-pairing clips that'll ensure single socks never get lost again in the Bermuda Triangle that is your dryer.

    Amazon

    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 a two-pack from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    31. An overflow drain cover so you can enjoy a full bath without worry about losing precious water every second.

    Amazon

    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 $7.99.

    32. A critter catcher with a long handle for safely remaining two feet away from the "Nope." It's far more effective than a shoe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I definitely struggle with the dilemma of not wanting buggers in my house but also not wanting to kill them. THIS SOLVES IT! It keeps me far enough away from them and grabs them the first time! Super easy to use, and then I get the happy conscious of releasing them outside to go on their happy way." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    33. A zipper puller to zip up your favorite dress all the way even when there's no one around to give you a hand.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ever wish you could bring your favorite dress on a trip, but you can't get it zipped without help? Ever felt trapped in a dress because your other half is coming home late? Ever not been able to REACH just far enough? This product perfectly addresses all of those situations, and — this is important —for all zipper types, including those tiny little solid zippers that don't have a hook (some other products seem to only work on zippers with a hook).

    For years, I've dreamed of inventing this product, of finding this product — here it is! I've used this product a few times since it arrived last week. It is simple in design, which means it is unlikely to break. The metal piece is well-built and easy to use. This is small enough to pack in even a small purse. I'm wanting one for my suitcase (so I don't accidentally forget it) as well as at home." —Stacy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

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

    Amazon

    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).

    35. Self-tying shoelaces —they'll never come undone unless you want them to.

    Amazon

    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).

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

    Amazon

    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).

    37. A dishwasher magnet so you don't have to wonder, "Are these dishes clean or no?"

    Amazon

    Just rotate it to switch the "status."

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    38. Ceiling fan chain pulls that clearly indicate which one is for the light and which one is for the fan — no more guessing games!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the definition of 'product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed.' I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no...now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek...now you're in the dark.) They're much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor." —LHD

    39. A silicone case for your earbuds so you don't have to untangle them every. single. time.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.53 (available two sizes and four colors).

    40. Shower curtain clips to close that annoying curtain/wall gap through which water and steam escape.

    Amazon

    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.

    41. A page holder so you can hold your book wide open with one hand and still have the other free for a glass of wine.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This little piece was sanded so well that it feels like velvet on your thumb! It's nice to be able to hold a book open without the hassle of using an extra hand. It hasn't done any damage to my pages or bothered my thumb while reading. I hesitated to buy this because it seemed like a want more than a need, but now that I have it, I see that I really needed it." —Daniela Pimentel

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in two sizes and finishes).

    42. A mini bottle of touch-up paint that'll cover up any chips, stains, or scratches on your walls and furniture.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Thank god this exists! Over the years, my sloppy 'hair-dying job at home' has left several spots on my white bathroom walls. This is exactly what I was looking for. If you're unsure which color to use (no need to be an exact match for this type of touch-ups), you can contact the company and they'll send you a color chart for free.

    This is like a whiteout for the imperfections. I didn't want to have to paint the entire bathroom for some small spots, but those spots were bothering me for certain. Now I don't even know where those spots are anymore, and the walls look normal. This is such a life saver." —mrsj

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in nine shades).

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

    Amazon

    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

    44. 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).

    Amazon

    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
