These Drawer Pulls Make All the Difference
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most expensive things to update in your house. So don’t go whole hog and blow a fortune on all new cabinets, when what you really need is new drawer pulls. They make all the difference between a dated look and a modern one, and these classic bin pulls give you a timeless but on-trend look.
Ice, Ice, Up Your Bento Box
I love the look of bento boxes for lunchtime (see item No. 7 above), but how do you keep anything cold in those things? Enter these slim ice packs that work as well for lunch boxes as they do bento boxes. Oh, you say you’re not into carrying dino ice packs into the office? Fine, party pooper. These also come in pineapple and rocket ship designs for yourself or your little ones who’ll be too cool for school.
This Cooling Mattress Pad Provides So Much Comfort on Hot Nights
I’ve always been a hot sleeper, and often wake up in a puddle of sweat while my husband is cool as a cucumber beside me. I’m adding this cooling mattress pad to my cart immediately after seeing the over 9,000 glowing reviews! The Nanotex fabric technology dries 100% faster than cotton, and it’s well-cushioned to make your bed even comfier.
Try This Clip-On Collander
I don’t know why it took someone so long to come up with a clip-on colander, but I feel like this might have been my million-dollar idea before someone beat me to it. Available in large and XXL sizes, this strainer doesn’t require any additional pans to clean. Just pop it on the pan that needs drained and then throw it in the dishwasher when you’re finished.
These Command Hook Shelves Level Up Your Decor
You know when you want a display shelf but don’t want to put holes in the wall? Try these Command Hook Shelves that go up anywhere and stay secure thanks to 3M technology! Use a bunch to display a large collection, or just a few as extra storage in the bathroom, kitchen, or any place else you desire.
This Microfiber Hair Wrap Will Work Wonders On Your Hair
There’s no need to potentially damage your hair with the heat from a hair-dryer: you can just invest in a microfiber hair towel. It’s super-absorbent and will dry your hair in record time, while also reducing the frizz in your hair (which tends to plague curly-haired women in particular!) It’s also ultra-lightweight and much gentler than your average towel, so it’ll feel great on your head.
The Cutting Board of Your Dreams (We Are Not Joking)
All cutting boards were not created equal, like this one made of bamboo that has juice grooves and four storage containers that you can literally rake your choppings into thanks to what the manufacturer dubbed as “the drop zone.” The extra-large surface is ideal and it can be turned this way or that depending upon whether you’re right- or left-handed.
The Wrap Dock Will Be the Star of Kitchen
If you’re short on kitchen space (and who isn’t?), you’re going to love this one. The WRAPdock is a genius invention that stores and dispenses wrap directly from the drawer. Did you catch that? Directly. from. the. drawer. This guy holds two rolls of whatever type of wrap you have, from aluminum foil to plastic wrap to wax paper. Just load it and then remind yourself what an amazing shopper you are to have found this deal.
You Mist Try This Sprayer
Someone in my house has an obsession with the spray oils you can buy at the store and omg, I find those to be so gross and full of chemicals. With this oil sprayer (which can also double as a vinegar sprayer or a sprayer of whatever things you want to spray), you can control precisely what ingredients you’re consuming in a large and wide mist format.
This Shower Head Filters Your Water
Not only does this innovative showerhead have three blissful water settings from rainfall to massage to jet, but it also filters your water while you’re under the spray! It uses multi-layer filter protection to remove excess impurities and soften hard water, giving you improved hair and skin cleanliness. And its high-pressure design gives you increased water pressure while saving up to 30% of water – smart!
I Scream, You Scream — It’s Homemade Ice Cream Containers
As a kid, I can plainly remember my parents making homemade ice cream on our back patio. But, I don’t remember them having these cool reusable homemade ice cream containers. Maybe that’s because we never had leftovers or maybe it’s because it was the 1980s and no one had dreamed up such a convenient gadget. Either way, you can buy a set of two now from Amazon for less than 18 bucks.
Shelf Liners Without Adhesive Backing
Available in 20 different patterns — including a gorgeous Fleur de Lis in gray — this shelf liner is a non-adhesive alternative to the one I showed you before. Why skip the adhesive? If you’re renting, you might want to be able to take it off — and it also gives you the ability to change things up when the mood strikes.
Admire Your Favorite Beauty Products in These Acrylic Apothecary Jars
I don’t like keeping a lot of stuff out on bathroom counters, but I make an exception for a set of clear jars filled with cotton balls, Q-tips, and decorative soaps. They’re functional and look so very glam! This set of three Acrylic Apothecary Jars is a wonderful value, and unlike glass, there’s no risk of them shattering and sending glass flying everywhere. The set includes 60-ounce, 30-ounce, and 15-ounce sizes.
Effortless Lighting With These Stylish Dimmable Bedside Lamps
A good lamp can definitely transform a room, but finding a cute lamp at a price that won’t break the bank can be a nuisance. Luckily, I’ve found one for you — this one is stylish, can be dimmed, and you can turn it on with only a tap. I’ll take two, thanks.

These Glass Covers Keep the Bugs From Taking a Swim in Your Drink
Enjoying a glass of wine or other drink al fresco can be a wonderful experience, but only if the bugs leave you alone. No one wants that nasty surprise of finding one floating in their beverage! These silicone and mesh drink covers pop right over the top of your cup to prevent any critters from taking a dip.
These Reusable Pouches Are Genius for Kids
When my kids were little, we’d go through tons of food pouches a week, and at over a dollar each, the cost really started to add up. I really wish I’d had these refillable ones a few years ago! You can fill them up with smoothies, pureed fruit, and veggie mixes, applesauce, yogurt, whatever your kids love to eat, but that’s way too messy to take on the go. These keep the mess contained and offer the perfect snack kids can enjoy anytime, anywhere.
This Stroller Fan Will Keep Baby Nice and Cool
This summer is warmer than any before it, but that doesn’t mean the kids will want to stay in. To give the tots have their outside exposure without having to fear them getting heatstroke, you should pick up one of these stroller fans. They clip on and will keep your delicate baby comfy on your daily walks.
These Ice Packs Keep Your Food Cold Without Being Too Bulky
I’ve never quite understood why ice packs needed to be so bulky. I know you want them to be thick enough to keep items cold for long periods of time, but with all of the technology out there, there surely had to be thinner options. So it was a pleasant surprise to come across these ice packs while making this list. They freeze quickly and help food and drinks stay cold for up to 4 hours.
Accent Lighting That is Actually Chic With This LED Bonsai Tree
I am very, very guilty of killing plants rather than growing them, which is why I bought this LED bonsai tree. Now when I’m in a video conference, people think I’m responsible enough to care for anything other than myself — which is not true. And not only does it look seriously real, but the flowers also light up once you plug it in.
These String Lights are a Must-Have for Outdoor Spaces

If you need a bar set, this is a great starting kit since it contains everything you need (except the booze) to sling cocktails like a pro!

People rave about how well-made this set is and how perfectly it fits on a minibar.

Display Your Beauty Product Faves in This Makeup Organizer
If you’re clicking “Add to Cart” as often as I am, you’re gonna need somewhere to put your new beauty finds. I love this simple yet stylish makeup organizer. Made of acrylic, it’s a good size (about 13 by 10 inches) for stashing in a drawer or cabinet, yet attractive enough to stay out on a bathroom surface. I love how I can see each and every product clearly–no more losing track of lipsticks and other small items!
This Super Soft Throw Blanket is Easy-to-Wash and Works in All Rooms
Know how you wish your super cozy throw blanket were bed-sized? Wish granted – this baby comes in sizes up to 108 x 90 inches, which is bigger than a king-size bed! It comes in 30 colors and gets rave reviews for softness and durability. I’m adding this to my cart immediately for a cozier, comfier bed.
Keep Everything in Place With This Drawer Organizer
My favorite drawer organizers are the ones that bypass folding entirely, which is why I love this clever divider. All you have to do is roll up socks, underwear, or bras and slide them into individual compartments. Each one is easy to find and ready when you want it.
More Shelf Space in An Instant
There are plenty of bedrooms and closets that come with basically no shelving whatsoever. It’s a crime against organization, but you can fight back with these spacious and stylish shelves. The best part is that there are little hooks at the top for hanging your favorite accessories.
I Don’t Know How I Ever Lived Without A Microwave Shelf
Alright alright — I lived by eating balanced meals and eating three times a day. But other than that? My life was empty before this microwave shelf came into it. Not only is it made from tough carbon steel, but the height, and length, are also adjustable so that it’ll work with practically any microwave.
Anti Fatigue Mats That Keep Your Floors Clean and Feet Comfortable
Name one place in your home where you spend more time standing than in your kitchen. Can’t come up with anything, can you?

They come in a matching set of two, and reviewers love them, calling them both functional and beautiful.

This personal blender not only allows you to make yummy smoothies but also allows you to take your breakfast on the go. Whether you’re busy with work or always traveling, you need this blender.
These Handcrafted Glass Candle Holders Made in New York City
Serene Spaces Living is a woman-owned small business dedicated to crafting beautiful, handmade home goods that exude style and warmth. My favorite pieces from their collection are these Candle Holders crafted from metal and glass. They’re earning solid ratings on Amazon with an average of 4.6 out of 5 stars. One happy customer writes, “Great quality. The gold is not shiny; a very pretty vintage look to it.”
A Turkish Towel is Easy to Tote Anywhere
There are beach towels and then there are Turkish towels and, I have to be honest, they are not at all equal. Beach towels are plush, which is ordinarily great until it soaks up all the water and sand and won’t leave. Turkish towels are thinner but still absorbent. The biggest difference is that they dry quickly and repel sand. I love this one in particular because it comes with a convenient travel bag.
This Water Bottle is Known For Keeping Your Bevvies Ice Cold
Stainless steel with a handy, insulated flip-lid, this is my go-to water bottle for the summer months, even when I’m inside. It’s the worst when your iced coffee loses the ‘iced’ part, and I don’t find I have that problem with this. I also love the bright colors it comes in!
Easy to Install Decorative Wallpaper You Can Peel Right Off
You can’t deny that this patterned wallpaper is seriously cute, and unlike regular wallpaper, it’s even removable! It’s perfect for renters or homeowners who get bored and like to redecorate often. “The quality of this paper is amazing, and it’s much more beautiful in person than online,” raved one reviewer.
