This High-Quality Sponge That Cuts Through Grime
via: AmazonI have a personal vendetta against sponges. They rarely get the job done when it comes to stuck-on food and grease, and they start to get that horrible mildew smell after just five minutes of sitting in your sink. Banish the stink and get your pots and pans cleaner than ever with The Original Scrub Daddy! These things are seriously heavy duty but promise not to scratch even your most delicate kitchen essentials.
These Paper Towels That Are Reusable
via: AmazonI go through a LOT of paper towels over the course of a day. I use them to clean every inch of my home, and I happen to be extremely clumsy, so it seems like I'm always throwing sheet after sheet into the garbage. What a waste! That's what make these Bambooee Reusable Bamboo Towel so ingenious. They work just as well as your favorite roll, but they're reusable, so you don't have to worry about killing the environment and wasting money.
This Nerd Wax That Keeps Your Glasses From Slipping
via: AmazonI wear reading glasses when I'm working. Or, at least, I'm supposed to. I tend to avoid wearing them because they're constantly slipping down my nose. It's pretty distracting, and although my eye doctor would probably be pretty irritated with me, I'd rather not wear them at all then have to deal with the slippage. So thank you, Shark Tank, for giving me this game-changing Nerd wax. Buh-bye slippage!
These Chewable Cubes That Will Replace Your Morning Cup of Joe
via: AmazonThe morning is a hectic time. Your alarm goes off, you hit the "snooze" button one too many times, and suddenly you realize that you only have about 15 minutes to shower, get dressed and run out the door. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to chug a cup of coffee in two seconds without scalding your throat? Grab a few of these GO cubes instead, which are delicious chewable coffee cubes.
These Earplugs That Are Comfortable And High Quality

But ever since I discovered these Vibes High Fidelity Concert Earplugs, I can be in my own little world, and completely drown off the world around me. These things are travel must-haves.
This Drop Stop That Keeps The Cracks In Your Car Clean
via: AmazonMy car is, in a word, disgusting. There are crumbs from past fast food trips that I'll never be able to get out, and I've basically stopped trying to clean it at this point because I know there's no point. If only this Drop Stop - The Original Patented Car Seat Gap Filler had been around eight years ago when I first bought my car. I'd be able to give people rides without being filled with shame.
This Squatty Potty That Makes Bathroom Trips A Breeze
via: AmazonLook, no one likes to talk about their time in the bathroom.

It forces you into the perfect position to make "going" 100X easier. Plus it really firms your glutes!
These Tortilla Chips With A Wild Ingredient
via: AmazonTortilla chips are a delicious snack, but they rarely contain any ingredients that are actually good for you. These Chirps Cricket Flour Chips decided to change all that by including an ingredient that provides you with a major punch of protein. Oh, but there's one catch...that ingredient is cricket flour. Which is made from crickets. Trust me, once you try them you'll be telling all your friends how yummy crickets are.
This All-Purpose Cleaner That's Also All-Natural

Who needs harsh, damaging chemicals anyway?! Not you!
This Instant Fire Starter That Just Might Save Your Life
via: AmazonI'm not what you'd call an "outdoorsy" type person. When I go camping it's usually because I've been forced to do so, and I couldn't start a fire the traditional way to save my life. So these InstaFire Granulated Fire Starters are made for people like me. Throw a few of them in your trunk for whenever you're roughing it in the great outdoors and you'll be prepared for anything.

This All-Natural Paste Deodorant That Sounds Weird But Works Wonders
via: AmazonOkay, so I get that the idea of a paste deodorant that you have to rub onto your pits may sound less than appealing. But this stuff is the real deal. Not only is it made up of all natural ingredients, but it completely neutralizes odor to create a pH balanced environment, meaning you can say "buh bye" to stink all day long. Once you try it, you'll be hooked.
This Beard King That Avoids That Disgusting Post-Shave Sink

Luckily for our marriage, the Beard King was invented, which catches all those annoying little hairs before they even touch the counter top. Sure, it looks a little goofy, but it's totally worth it.
This Happy Mat That Keeps Food Off The Floor
via: AmazonI may not have kids myself, but I spend a lot of time with my two year old nephew, who loves nothing more than to throw his plate on the floor and fling food all over the kitchen. It was cute the first time, but now it's just obnoxious. This ezpz Happy Mat is a one piece silicone mat and bowl hybrid that keeps food on the table where it belongs. Rejoice, exhausted parents!
This Fancy Notebook That's WAY More Than Just A Notebook
via: AmazonOld school notebooks are SO last year. This Rocketbook Wave Smart Notebook is WAY more than just a traditional notebook.

Seriously, where was this thing when I was in college?!
These Heel Protectors That Let You Walk On Grass With Ease

Just TRY not to snooze with this thing on. I dare you.
This Glasses Holder That Always Keeps Your Specs Within Reach
via: AmazonI don't wear my glasses half as often as I should. I mostly need them for work, and because I'm constantly misplacing them I've pretty much just resigned myself to the fact that I will never wear them and my eyes will just get progressively worse every day. But then a friend told me about this Readerest Magnetic Eyeglass Holder, which clips right onto your shirt for easy access. So now I have no excuse not to wear them.

This CreaClip That Finally Lets You Cut Your Own Hair

This Turbie Twist Microfiber Hair Towel That Cuts Drying Time In Half
