They are soft, quickly absorb water, and quick to dry. You can really feel the memory foam with every step, which is so much better than the basic bathroom rug. The color is a beautiful shade of blue. It was well worth the price." —Snaxx

    12. A compact kitchen cart because your tiny kitchen could use all the storage and counter space it can get.

    Price: $149.99

    14. A powerful vacuum that'll leave your floors and carpet spotless.

    This model combines the strength of an upright vacuum and the portability of a lift-away vacuum — you can pop the canister off to clean up the stairs or the couch. It has swivel steering so you can easily maneuver around furniture. It's equipped with HEPA filters that trap dander, dust, and allergens.

    Promising review: "I've had animals all my life, which include shedding dogs, but I don't like my home looking like I have any. I've been through every kind of vacuum, but none compare to this Shark! The suction power is amazing, and because I have a bad back, I needed a lightweight, easy to get around vacuum, and this one is perfect. The attachments work great, too. You won't be disappointed with this purchase!" —Litlesiss

    Price: $199.99

    15. A three-piece breakfast pub set perfect for a small home that can't fit a full-size dining table.

    Promising review: "I needed a table that was able to fit in a smaller kitchen and left me room to move around. Table fits nicely against the wall and stools stick under it so they aren't taking up extra space. The finish on the table is very nice. I am pleased. Good value for the cost." —Sueannie

    Price: $159.99

    This queen-size mattress is 10 inches thick!

    Promising review: "I have had this for one year now, and it still is the comfiest mattress I've ever owned. I've spent hundreds of dollars on the big brand-name mattresses over the years, and what a waste of money they are. I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and finding something that would relieve the pressure on my body was tough. This mattress seemed hard at first but after the first week, it conformed to my body perfectly. It is so different from a traditional spring mattress. Try it, and you will be pleased." —Just Judy

    Price: $399.99 (available in queen and twin)

    19. An essential oil diffuser for some aromatherapy after a stressful day.

    Promising review: "My girlfriend had one of these for her apartment and so I bought one for myself also. After you put in the water and two to three drops of oil, plug it in and turn it on, it starts immediately — no waiting. It runs almost all night (many hours). The changing lights inside are kind of cool, and it has a setting that lets you turn that function off if you want to." —Rockyfan

I went back to the store and bought one more for my guest room." —New mattress saved
