I originally got these highlighters for my daughter to help her study, but I’ve been stealing them for noting important passages in books or in my work notes! The bright colors won’t bleed through, making them excellent for thin pages. I also love that they don’t dry out when left uncapped, as my daughter is wont to do!

Sure, you clean your dishes, but when was the last time you cleaned your dishwasher? (I know I haven’t in… well, we won’t talk about that.) Pop this little tablet in the same place you’d put your usual detergent, run a normal wash cycle, and let Affresh work its magic. By removing both ancient soap scum stains and hard water buildup, it’ll not only make your dishwasher look new again, but also help it drain more efficiently and cut down on any potential for mold or mildew.

I’m pretty much an athleisure connoisseur at this point since it’s all I wear, and I’d rate these best-selling leggings a perfect 10.

With over 70,000 glowing reviews and 25 colors to choose from, you know these are going to quickly become your fave leggings.

Extension cords are, by default, generally pretty terrible. Either they’re out in the open and a total eyesore, or they’re hidden behind your couch, keeping it annoyingly non-flush from the wall. That’s what makes the Sleeksocket so great. Its low profile design is barely noticeable, allowing you to extend power where you please without sacrificing aesthetics, or comfort. It even acts as an outlet protector to keep little fingers safe!

lusso-gear-spill-proof-car-trash-can.jpg

Finally, a place to put every last scrap of garbage in your car (that’s not those hidden pockets in the door – you know what I’m talking about). Lusso’s car-bage cans hold up to 2.5 gallons of trash (dry, wet, or otherwise), and strap anywhere you need them in the car, so you’ll never be at a loss for where to stuff that empty Starbucks cup as you make room for a new one.

flexi-hose-with-8-function-nozzle-expandable-garden-hose.jpg

I dislike many things about our traditional garden hose – it’s heavy, hard to manuever, leak-prone, and generally annoying. This Flexi-Hose solves all those problems with its lightweight construction that resists leaks and kinks and compact design that expands to 50 feet. Chances are much higher the garden’s actually going to get watered this year!

homemaid-living-premium-airtight-plastic-storage-containers-easy-lock-lid.jpg

I never fully trust a food storage container without a REALLY secure lid, which is why I love these ones with locking lids. The seven piece set is safe in the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer and is the perfect size for meal planning or storing leftovers. They’re a great value compared to other brands and perform just as well, according to the 2,000+ stellar reviews!

Flying insects in my house are a nightmare – flies freak out the kids, mosquitos buzzing in your ear while you’re trying to fall asleep are the absolute worst, and anything in the stinging family causes untold chaos. Thankfully, I don’t have to possess cat-like reflexes or superhuman speed to get rid of winged pests – this Zap-It bug zapping racket lets me relive tennis playing days of yore while taking care of an annoying problem!

drain snakes

If you haven’t snaked your sinks recently (or ever), you’re in for a particularly gross treat. These plastic gizmos grab all the built up hair, soap scum, and who-knows-what-else from your pipes, which may often look like something out of The Ring, You even get a five pack of these top-rated snakes so you can toss them every time you use them, if you’re squeamish.

As a voracious reader in a family of voracious readers, I am fully conscious of the need for good lighting when catching up on those late night chapters.

Another favorite of my coworker: “As a perenially itchy person, I’ve spent years in search of a decent back scratcher, and every one I’ve tried has paled in comparison to the Cactus Scratcher. It’s perfect. A two-sided plastic head features different levels of spikes for different levels of itching, and the telescoping pole is robust enough for some serious scratching sessions. Add to all that the price point, and it’s a must-have for anyone who loves being scratched.”

When I came across this fuzzy ball hand towel I knew I had to share it with you guys! It’s such a unique take on the bathroom hand towel, and dries so much faster, too, since it’s made from microfiber! It’s a towel that doubles as decor, and you’ll get a set of two to use together or in separate bathrooms.

addalock-the-original-portable-door-lock-by-rishon-enterprises-inc.jpg

Maybe I listen to too many true crime podcasts, but whenever I travel solo for business, I make sure to pack this Add-a-lock portable door lock. It couldn’t be easier to use and provides an extra layer of security that gives me more peace of mind than a chair shoved under the doorknob. Also great for Airbnbs where you find out the property owner’s a bit sketch.

After I bravely (stupidly?) started CrossFit, my husband gifted me this Vybe massager for my screaming muscles. The uniquely-shaped three metal heads and four plastic ones allow you to target pretty much any muscle group with ease. Thanks to the three hour battery life and nine intensity levels, my constantly-knotted shoulders have finally relaxed.

resqme.jpg
resqme.jpg

This tiny-but-mighty car escape tool was originally developed for first responders, but should should probably come with every new car purchase. The resqme is small enough to fit on your keychain, with a spring-loaded escape hammer that can easily break through any car window, and an ultra-sharp razor blade that can slice quickly through a jammed seatbelt. Best of all, you can typically nab a 2-pack for under $20.

solar-garden-lights.jpg
solar-garden-lights.jpg

We live on a main street, but in a small, rural town so no streetlights. I seriously can’t see my hand in front of my face when I walk to the mailbox after dark, so using these solar garden lights to illuminate the walkway has been a life-changer. They come in an 8-pack so you can customize placement to fit your outdoor space beautifully.

shower-hair-catcher-wall.jpg
shower-hair-catcher-wall.jpg

I’ll admit, when I’m shampooing, I’ll wipe the loose hairs I pull out on the shower wall and forget, then eventually they end up in the drain. This handy shower hair catcher takes care of the stray strands and keeps them from creating clogs that require professional help. The flexible, durable silicone is great at grabbing hair but releases it easily for fast clean-up.

musicozy-headband.jpg

I often take hours to fall asleep, just lying there with my thoughts, but since I started using these sleep headphones I’ve been able to drift off so much faster.

kitchiny-silicone-bottle-brush.jpg
kitchiny-silicone-bottle-brush.jpg

We used to have a drawerful of different brushes to clean water bottles, glasses, vases, etc. I was able to whittle it down to just one convenient silicone brush that cleans all the things! The two inch silicone brush head fits in even narrow containers and bottles, and the over 12 inch long handle works on even my tallest water bottle and vases.

butter-hugger.jpg

Do yourself a favor and snag these Food Huggers to keep your food fresh.

My husband is a fanatic about maintaining razor-sharp knives and he hasn’t had to sharpen that much since we switched to bamboo.

funny-vase.jpg

The moment I saw Florino the Friendly Flower Vase, I thought: this is genius. I’m sure many others have a very different opinion. I love how it’s at once goofy and useful, with bendable arms and legs that can set it up anywhere, and a waterproof silicone body that’ll keep little bouquets alive. It’s a wonderfully weird addition to your house for well under $15.

It helpfully includes a wine glass holder and adjusts to fit all bath tub widths!

perfecore-facial-mask.jpg
perfecore-facial-mask.jpg

I call this my emotional support cooling face mask because it really is that important. It immediately de-puffs my morning face, soothes migraine headaches I get from looking at a computer screen all day every day, and helps with sinus pressure from colds and seasonal allergies. It also feels ah-ma-zing when you pop it on right after an intense workout session.

toothpaste-caps.jpg

If you’ve got kids, you know what an unholy mess they can make with toothpaste. My bathroom counter’s never been cleaner since using these self-closing toothpaste caps! No one has to remember to put the cap on, and these dispense the perfect amount of toothpaste so there’s less waste and mess!

solar-lantern.jpg
solar-lantern.jpg

Light up your outdoor space with these solar lanterns that cast pretty shadows. Six hours charging in sunlight gives you six to eight hours of light after dark.
