A genius T-shirt roll holder that’ll keep all your shirts neat and easily accessible. If folding is your kryptonite and digging through your shirt drawer is your biggest pet peeve, this nifty hanger is about to save you from yourself.


Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

The Roll Keeper is owned by Kelso, Washington’s resident crafter, Traci. Traci has been crafting for over 40 years and created her storage design to help organize vinyl, soon realizing that it was the perfect organization solution for much more. Her shop has versions for bottles, wrapping paper, pens, and more. Don’t miss checking out this small business!

Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn’t have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I’ve purchased an Etsy product from!

An eye primer for anyone who spends way too much time on their smokey eye to have it sweat off the minute they hit the dance floor.


amazon.com

Promising review: “So I use this primer for my eyeliner AND eyebrows, and it is a life-changer!!! I work jobs and a majority of the day I’m waitressing outside on the patio in the humidity. I needed something to keep my eyeliner intact so I didn’t look like a raccoon by the end of my shift. It literally kept my makeup looking like I just put it on allllll day no matter how bad I sweat in the heat!!! I used it only on my eyes first just to try and I was amazed. So the next day I tried it as a primer for my eyebrows too before I filled them in and it does the same for my eyebrows! I’m in love with this product. Hopefully my picture will prove it!!” —Molly

A pressed floral bookmark – it’s gonna be a gorgeous solution if you know that dog-earring books deserves a one-way ticket to prison.


Kaylie Reads

This small business is in Manchester, New Hampshire and owned by Kaylie Reads, who started designing dried floral bookmarks during quarantine. All flowers are real and pressed fresh.

You can also request round or square corners and if you would like a tassel.

Promising review: “So I bought a lot of these!! They are awesome, they interlock and allow for different combination of sizes and layouts. My drawers are finally organized and I can sleep better knowing that my toothbrush is not touching the cotton swab dispenser. Seriously though, the sizes available in this package seem to fit most things, like a toothbrush, external hard drives, screws, and dog combs.” —Leo Light

And a silverware cubby to make sure your spoons, knives, and forks are all divided correctly. No, I do not want to eat my spaghetti with a spoon. Thankyouverymuch.


amazon.com, amazon.com

I use this in my kitchen! I have to admit…it hasn’t exaaactly helped with organization. What it *has* done is created a neat and orderly spot for my utensils…opening up a ton of extra drawer space for my unruly stash of pens, bouillon cubes, drink flavor packets, and the like. Long story short — I recommend this for tidy and messy folks alike!

Promising review: “We were short on storage and drawer space and this worked perfectly for our tiny drawer!” —Angela McMichael

A pair of blackout curtains for night owls, like myself, who like sleeping in waaay past sunup. Sunrise is for suckers! Don’t let some sheer drapes get in the way of your snoozin’!


amazon.com

Promising review: “These are TRUE blackout curtains!!! FINALLY I found some curtains that you truly cannot see through. These are exactly what I was looking for! They really don’t let ANY light through, they’re fantastic for both my office, where I have to do minute color adjustments on architectural illustrations on my computer monitor, AND my bedroom, where the nearby train station’s blinding lights keep me up all night unless I wear one of those sleeping blindfolds, which are really uncomfortable.” —DotScott1

Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (18 colors and three sizes).

A totally safe yet terrible tasting bitter nail polish so you can finally stop biting your nails to bits.


amazon.com

Promising review: “During stressful times, I bite off all my nails. Once they’re bitten off, it’s hard for me to quit biting them so I thought I’d try this product. Well, it’s been a week and I’m not biting them anymore. The taste if you do is just bitter enough to make you stop. And my nails already look better after a week. I highly recommend this product.” —Cheryl Douglas

Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

A magnetic laundry guard that’ll let you fold clothes on top of the washer without worrying about anything falling through that impossibly small space between the washer and the wall. There will be no missing socks on your watch!


Amazon

Promising review: “This laundry guard is exactly what it advertises. It’s easy to put together and install on washer dryer. Such an easy solution to such a common problem. I’m surprised I did not look for this a long time back. I am completely satisfied with my purchase.” —RJ

Get it from Amazon for $29.89.

11.

And a laundry soap station you can tuck into a shelf or leave out on the counter so your heavy, dripping cleaning detergent doesn’t make a mess in the place where you are trying to make things clean.


Amazon

Promising review:I was always annoyed with the soap drips on the tile floor of our utility room; the tile was easy to wipe off, but when the soap got into the grout line, that was another thing. I first considered buying the little cup that hangs off of the spout and then I saw this. I realized that the hanging cup would be in the way of the drawer and to access the drawer would require constantly moving the container. This is the perfect solution.” —HenryD

Do I own these? Yes. Do I think everyone deserves to own these? Also yes.

Promising review: “I finally found stockings that fit me. I am 6 feet tall and 230 pounds. These fit perfectly, not baggy or super tight. I’m definitely going to get more. These are perfection!” —Jessica Orengo

Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in five colors and sizes XS–XL).

A beard bib, because seeing hair in the sink truly makes brushing your teeth a dreadful ordeal. This just might be the passive-aggressive “present” your partner needs in their life.

A bottle of Poo Pourri you can get if using the bathroom right after your teenager really ~stinks~ — if everyone sprays this into the toilet bowl before using the bathroom, it won’t have to!


instagram.com, instagram.com

Promising review: “So our bathroom is right by the bed. My husband can really stink me out of the room sometimes. With this it actually covers up the smell. I’m so glad I finally bought it. The last time he stunk us out our daughter was gagging, so I decided it was time to order. Love it.” —Astrid’s Mommy

Get it from Amazon for $9.23.

15.

A set of fool-proof waste containers that’ll make organizing your recycling so easy, you won’t have to feel like ~garbage~ when your partner asks you to stop throwing cans in the trash.


Amazon

Promising review: “I absolutely love these bags. They make transporting and disposing of my recycling super easy. I’m able to just run up to the recycling bins in town pick up my bags and dump the stuff in, no sorting while there. Durability seems to be great so far. I’ve used them for about a month. I wouldn’t suggest filling the glass bag to the brim because it’s just heavy to carry. They aren’t bulky like some bins that take up a lot of space. My husband now knows where everything goes, so that is a major plus.” —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $23.99.

A chiliPAD bed cooler to make one or both sides of the bed cold from the bottom up, so the human heater you sleep beside is finally able to sleep as cold as they want (without you freezing in the process).


ChiliSleep

BTW, this includes a reversible, hydro-powered Chili Cool Mesh™ Pad, thermal regulating control units, and a remote. The system uses hydropower and operates within 55-115 degrees F. You can also get the Ooler app to control the bed’s temperature from your phone.

Promising review: “This has been a game-changer for me. Hot flashes and night sweats are gone and my sleep is much improved. I highly recommend this product.” —Jenny D.

Get it from ChiliSleep for $499+ (available in two styles and three sizes).

A vibrating alarm clock, because if your S.O.’s ringtone wakes you up one more time at 5 a.m., you might actually lose it. Or alternatively, if *you* are the early bird, you won’t have to worry about waking the whole house up for your morning jog.


Amazon

This alarm can also be used with sound on and it can be VERY loud – even the heaviest sleepers won’t stand a chance!

Promising review: “This alarm clock has been a lifesaver/marriage-saver, LOL! My husband wakes up for work super early, and every morning, he would wake myself and my infant son up with his obnoxious alarm clock! I started to look into a vibrating alarm and decided on the Sonic Bomb to use the vibration feature only, and let me tell you IT WORKS and IT’S AWESOME!!! If you need a tactile alarm clock, I would definitely recommend the Sonic Bomb!” —Jessica

Get it from Amazon for $33.40+ (available in six colors).

A dishwasher magnet so there’ll finally be zero confusion over whether the dishes are washed or not.


Amazon

Promising review: “This simple product had been essential to our marriage during the first few weeks with a newborn when you don’t know what day it is. Also helpful in a house where people have different life/work/sleep/chore schedules. Seriously, love this thing. Even purchased one for the home and one for the office.” —nichole

A natural, antibacterial, and anti-fungal foot odor spray for saving your entryway from stinky shoes.


amazon.com

I swear by this stuff! I have sweaty feet and I’m always mortified when I’m at a “shoes-off” house because I don’t know what my feet will smell like. To relieve that stress for guests at my place, I leave this in plain sight by our shoe rack so anyone can spritz it on their shoes or their feet. I use it whenever I’ve been walking a lot and it keeps the entryway from smelling like feet.

Promising review: “Even with the great reviews, I was convinced there was no way this would touch the stank in my son’s shoes. While headed to town as a family we were struck with the stench of his shoes. It was so bad we turned the car around, drove 10 minutes back to the house, chucked them into the yard, and went to buy him new shoes (which also stunk after he wore them once). He lost the new shoes in three days, which was just enough time for this spray to arrive. I was forced to try this with the nasty yard shoes. OMG: After one soak in this stuff the smell was GONE! I sniffed hard to find that underlying stank that I was sure would be there. Gone. He’s been wearing the newly revived demon shoes for a week at summer camp, spraying every day before he puts them on, and the smell is still GONE. Completely!” —Broncodriver

A versatile bag clip, because bar seats and bathroom stalls without a bag hook are a nightmare. Ever tried to balance your bag on your bare legs while using the bathroom? Me too. And now I’ll never do it again!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have a very heavy, large purse that is a bottomless pit. One time I put my purse on the back of my chair at a cafe and the whole chair flipped over, that is how heavy my bag is. I was looking for something so that I could hook my purse on things so it wasn’t sitting on the floor and was more accessible. I love this little gadget. I have used it on everything from bathroom stalls to tables to grocery carts. This thing really grips. All of my girlfriends love it and have gotten it for themselves.” —Jennifer

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in seven colors).

21.

A pasta measuring tool for cooks who are incapable of using their ~noodle~ when it comes to solving the dreaded “how much dry pasta is too much cooked pasta” life quiz.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a lifesaver. I used to make more pasta than was necessary. Now I can make the perfect amount of pasta without looking like I’m trying to feed a whole army.” —ashting

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

22.

A pair of Sock Ons you can place over your baby’s socks to keep them on your kid’s feet when they start developing those darn fine motor skills.


Amazon

Promising review: “My baby is a Houdini when it comes to losing socks. These keep the socks on longer then anything else. She can only get them off if she concentrates for a long time, and being 11 months old, that rarely happens. These have been a lifesaver during this Midwest winter!” —Beth

Get them from Amazon for $8.60+ (available in 0-6 months and 6-12 months and in five colors).

23.

A pack of nasal strips that’ll open up your nostrils, helping you breathe deeply (and quietly) all night long. There’s nothing more frustrating than being blamed for bothering someone with your snores…it’s not on purpose!


Amazon

Promising review: “Since people rarely buy snore strips for their own personal satisfaction, this review comes from the perspective of a previously-sleep-deprived girlfriend, me. These things stop snoring second only to grabbing my boyfriend’s nose until he can’t breathe and wakes up. Unlike that ‘best’ option, these do not start arguments in the middle of the night over why ‘any sane person’ would grab someone’s nose. They restore my peaceful slumber, resolve arguments before they’ve even begun, and (because I get better sleep), make me look better too. Talk about an all-around relationship saver!! Also, if you turn the lights off and then rip open the little packaging, it makes a cool blue spark, which I’m convinced is the anti-snore magic activating.” —Nicole

Get them from Amazon for $10.99.

24.

A fabric defuzzer to clean up sweaters, sofas, and other aging fabrics, keeping you from pulling at materials that have been a real ~pill~ lately.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I didn’t think it through when I threw some dark shirts and sweaters in the wash with a couple of light towels. They came out with all those fuzzies. I ordered one of these based on the price and customer reviews and I can see why this is rated so high. Since it’s so portable, I just sat on the couch and shaved two shirts and a pair of cottony exercise pants while watching TV. I probably would have never worn these items (at least not outside the house!) again if it wasn’t for this great little gadget.” —Paula Nelson

Get it from Amazon for $13.16 (available in six colors).

25.

An anti-fog spray so you can actually see where you’re going when you go outside in glasses and a mask.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future.” —Tonya Crippen

Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

A bottle of wine drops, a natural sulfite and tannin remover — a few drops of this will let you enjoy your drink without worrying about getting a headache afterwards. Why does wine treat us badly when we love it so much??


Amazon

One of these will treat up to 55 glasses of wine (up to nine bottles!). You need 1-2 drops for a white wine and 2-3 for a red.

Promising review: “This product was really amazing. I buy a lot of stuff on Amazon and never write a review, however this product is worth writing one. I’ve used the Wand as well and like it, however the biggest drawback of the Wand is having to explain why I’m using it to others and causing undue attention. This is a quick solution to that issue. The product itself works great. I get bad headaches whenever I drink wine, however with this product I’m able to drink two to three glasses without the headaches. I’m not sure exactly what causes the headaches, whether it’s tannins, sulfites, etc., however I just know this cures the issue. I’m sure there are those who are skeptical, I certainly was, but I can truly say it works for me and hopefully others will find success using it as well.” —luke

A pack of lobe support patches to ease the weight of your earrings, keeping your lobes from getting stretched and making sure your cutest accessories aren’t a weight on your shoulders.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Amazing. Literal lifesavers. I LOVE my heavy Kendra Scott earrings, but I’m pretty sure they’re the culprit of why my right earring hole has ripped slightly. Using these support patches, it’s as if the earrings don’t even exist. I am going to tell all of my friends to get these for their heavy statement earrings!!” —Donthemom50

A pack of cable savers because paying to get a new cord due to some dumb frayed edges is sure to fray your nerves.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I’ve just had to replace a charging cable for my iPad. The wires broke within the insulation, within an inch of the connector/plug end. Then I found out about these spiral coil flexible silicone wire protectors. They keep the wire cable from being stressed from bending. I bought a bunch of these and have put them on both ends of every charging cable for every device, iPad, cellphone, etc that I own. I would recommend that you do so too!!!” —Richard Virchow

A magnetic visual timer to help kids see exactly how much time they have to get ready. When your friends had kids and began constantly being late, it was your number one pet peeve. Now that you have kids? That humble pie tastes terrible. Hopefully this helps!


amazon.com

These are just as useful for adults who prefer a visual reminder to help them stay focused.

Promising review: “I LOVE this timer. I use it in my classroom to time center rotations or other various timed activities. The red indicator is an excellent visual for kids and the ringer isn’t obnoxiously loud or long. It’s also magnetic!!!! I bought another just to have in multiple places in the room. Worth it!!!” —Jasmine Olean

A set of seat gap fillers, because the number one beef you and your car get into isn’t about that constantly blinking check-engine light, it’s how often your french fries and cell phone fall into that barely-not-hand-sized abyss between the seats.


amazon.com

It’ll also prevent any french fries from getting lost down there, too. 🍟

Promising review: “I watched the episode of Shark Tank this was on. I have had incidents where things have dropped into the gap between seat and console and what a pain that is! This product is so simple and easy to install. I highly recommend it and wonder why I didn’t think of it first.” —the crew dog

Get a set of two from Amazon for $22.99.

A beauty spatula so you can get every last drop out of your expensive skincare, despite the fact that you KNOW those bottles were designed to get you to buy new product sooner. You will not waste that money! You have a baby spatula!


amazon.com

Promising review: “I kept debating about buying this. I’m trying to stick to a tight student budget and wasn’t sure if spending money on a little tool like this would end up saving me money in the long run. I ended up getting about a month’s worth of foundation out of a bottle that I would otherwise have considered to be “empty” — and that’s just one bottle so far! For me, totally worth it.” —Reviewtoo

A zipper puller that’ll help you zip up any outfit, even if it was designed by someone who just assumed everyone must have double-jointed elbows. We don’t. But we can have this instead!


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I purchased this zipper puller for a very dear friend of mine. She recently lost her husband after 62 years together. She loves to dress up and was concerned that she would not be able to wear dresses with back zippers, that was always her husband’s job. She was so thrilled when I gave her this gift, she actually cried. Sometimes the smallest of gifts brings so much happiness.”—reds

A travel case of floss picks – they’re gonna make eating out a lot more fun. If you avoid certain foods (popcorn, ribs, raspberry jam) because it sticks in your teeth and that feeling makes your skin crawl, carrying this is gonna make that worry a thing of the past!


Amazon

Promising review: “I purchased these to keep in my purse zipper compartment for ’emergencies,’ aka getting something stuck in between my teeth such as pepper, lettuce, herbs, or whatever. I can go to the powder room and remove whatever it is. I feel better having these in tow. We love Plackers for use here at home — they make flossing easy. With age, it just seems things tend to get stuck more, and these are a great idea to have along, just for in case. I can refill the case if I do end up needing to use them. The case is easy to open and close, and feels like it will stay closed in my purse. These are a great idea! I’m very happy to have this little travel case of Plackers tucked away in my purse!” —Small~Town~Girl

Amazon

Promising review: “These have to be among the most useful gadgets in my kitchen and we use them constantly for open loaves of bread, crackers, rice, and many other types of packaging where you need a secure hold. I no longer save twist ties, those funny square plastic thingies that come with so much packaging. I have ordered additional ones since the kitchen is not the only place I have found them useful.” —Connie of GA

Promising review: “I decided to try this to cover up some of the chips of missing paint in my kitchen. It works perfectly.
