This Outlet Timer Lights Up Your Life

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I bought 8 outlet timers for indoor Christmas lights in different rooms in the house; all 8 worked perfectly. I was able to sync all the timers to the exact same time by using the clock on my PC. The directions were simple and easy to understand making programming very easy. I’m thrilled that my lights all come on and turn off at the same time, for the first time ever.”  – WhiteShepMom


These Anti-Chafing Bands Save Your Thighs From Destruction

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These SAVED me! I am a curvy woman, and my thighs get very chafed on hot days if I wear a skirt or dress. I love these thigh bands. They saved my thighs! They weren’t too hot, and they stayed in place all day – I must have walked 5 miles (seriously, I was in Paris).” – Seacoast Mom


This Food Storage Container Saves Your Bacon

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “Ok. I saw this bacon keeper “advertised” on another website’s cute list of “Things You Didn’t Know You Needed”. They were SO RIGHT. I always have to fight with the cling wrap or foil, feeling bad about not being sustainable while I inevitably end up with a cut from the packaging, all with greasy hands so that I end up dropping something on the floor. Not anymore! Hands down the most useful product I have bought in YEARS. The practicality was worth every penny!” – ReviewToo

These Grocery Bag Grips Let You Carry 50 LBS In Each Hand

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “The Mighty Handle is perfect for saving your fingers, while allowing you to carry a ton of bags and weight. And people who have seen me using them at the local Safeway are always asking me about them. I could tell that more than a few were likely considering how to take me down in the parking lot so they could separate me from these cool handles. Luckily, none of them were fast enough to act out on that plot and I had time to explain to them how inexpensive and easy to buy the handles are. I will be buying more to give as gifts because they’re practical and will save people time and pain.” – Jim

This Garlic Peeler Keeps Your Hands Smelling Nice

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “My favorite part is that this garlic peeler has a small cross-slit opening on top that works like magic….after rolling the garlic peeler in between your hands, the garlic skins come off the cloves, and you then just push them out the cross-slit hole at top. You’re left with a beautifully peeled clove of garlic, with no mess!” – NS

This Grabbing Tool Is Better Than A Tall Friend

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I have had chronic back problems for many years now, so there’s always a risk with me bending over picking stuff up. I finally decided to give this grabber a try and what a game changer. I wish I would have bought one sooner! I plan on getting one of these for every level of my house. Never want to be without this again!” – VSR

These Toothpaste Squeezers Get Every Last Drop

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These toothpaste squeezers are awesome! These little stands allow us to get the last amounts of toothpaste out while also providing a stable base to stand the toothpaste tubes up on. Genius! The base has a non-slip rubber backing, so no worries about it sliding around the shelf. Conveniently solves one of life’s minor little annoyances.” – Molly H

This Menu Planner Has A Tear-Off Shopping List

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I love this notepad! I almost purchased a $20+ notepad for weekly meal planning, and looking back now, that’s silly. This has a great little shopping list you can use on the side of each week, and you know what, it works! I didn’t think we’d really use that, but it helps a lot.” – Brittany Beauchamp

These Self-Leveling Measuring Spoons Cut Down On Dirty Dishes

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I love these measuring spoons! They make me so happy every time I use one. When I’m measuring out spices, sugar, etc, I often used a knife to level the spoon off. That’s 2 things to clean. With these spoons, I only have to clean the spoon. I think these would make fun hostess gifts too!” – NYMommy10

These Swedish Dishcloths Pay For Themselves

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I have been using this same cloth daily for almost 7 months. I lathers like a dream with very little soap and scrubs well without damaging the finish on delicate items. It dries quickly, and is in great shape even after so much use. I throw it in the washer once a week to keep it fresh and clean. I used to go through one sponge a week. It has paid for itself many times over.” – Shaida Ehlert

This Toilet Bowl Cleaning System Does The Gross Work For You

Selected review: “I’ve used many different toilet bowl cleaners in my day, all with very little success. Most might tint the water, keep it a bit more clean, and give it a scent. But this is the first one that actually did the job of regular manual bowl scrubbing. I did not have to scrub the toilet once or apply any additional cleaner for 3-4 months. Gone are the days of weekly scrubbing the nasty toilet! This is truly a great product.” – Chris F

This Drain Cleaner Gets All The Slimy Hair Out

Selected review: “These hair catchers saved my sanity. I have long curly hair. Even when I brush it BEFORE i shower I still have a ton of loose hairs that do not fall out until I shampoo and condition. I have tried a few options that catch it before it hits the drain but they only do so much. This however catches it ALL. I pull it up once a week, try not to gag, and clean it up and put it back. 10/10 telling all my girl friends about this thing. -JuliaSto

This Lipstain Is The Holy Grail

Selected review: “The lipstain color is amazing and the control it provides it so perfect. Smells, tastes great. This product does what so many others fail to accomplish by providing a long-lasting, lovely color.” -evangeline

This Car Trash Bag Keeps It Fresh

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “If your car is a mess this will be your best friend! I just got a new car that I am trying to keep tidy and this little garbage bag has helped me with the little items of trash that just seem to pile up and make the car a mess. Although it is small it actually fits a lot of stuff. I like that you can open the bottom and get rid of the contents without having to touch them.” –Celeste Gonzalez

This Oven Thermometer Comes Professionally Recommended

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “Bought a high ticket combo convection microwave over-the-range oven that I perceived was not heating properly. I purchased this oven thermometer to check it out. I was right. The repair man who can saw which oven thermometer I had didn’t even question its accuracy. He said “You won’t find a better one.” That’s enough for me.”-millersingb

These Pet Nail Trimmers Are Sharp & Speedy

Selected review: “I felt a little stupid buying a slightly more expensive nail clipper for my cats. However, I’m so glad I didn’t go cheap!  These are easier to grip, and the clipper is stable. The blade is sharper. I can cut the nails faster, which means more often. My cats don’t object (I never let them win, but with slower clippers they fuss a bit). So now I feel a little stupid for NOT buying a slightly more expensive clipper years ago. Yup, these work better.” – Maria

This Deodorizing Spray Works When All Else Has Failed

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “My poor 16 year old athletic son has always struggled with foot odor. We have tried everything from mint extract between the toes, foot powders, going to the doctor and getting prescription sprays etc…. NOTHING has worked. But this amazing giant bottle of Funk Away spray is a miracle!!!! He no longer has smelly feet or shoes. I’m so happy for him that he no longer has to feel self conscious about his feet.” – Amazon Customer

This Butter Saver Fits Perfectly

This Cooking Apron Is Also A Cheat Sheet

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “This apron was a Christmas gift for my hubby, who is a good cook, and he loved it! He couldn’t believe all the info on it and immediately tried it on to see if it was easy to use, which it was indeed. It had more facts on it than I thought, too, and I think it will be a huge help in the kitchen for both of us.” – NikkiSilver

This Headcool Balm Is A Natural Miracle Worker

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I am so happy. I had a migraine for 11 days then came across this Headache Ease Balm. It has decreased the pain to a mild-medium headache which is a MASSIVE DROP IN MY PAIN. If you have a headache that’s driving you nuts buy this it does help. Although I believe in herbal remedies my pain was so bad I didn’t think it would help. I am so happy I decided to give it a try.” – Journey

This Selfie Light Stand Takes Years Off

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I ordered this simple light because it’s exactly what I needed at a phenomenal price. The phone holder is perfect and holds the phone very tightly. It also doubles as a desk lamp. I love the many light settings. I certainly have recommended it to many of my friends and family and I also recommend it to YOU! Look at how it hides all the mama stress on my face! Seriously! I probably would purchase this just to see the eye baggage go away! Buy it! Buy 2!” – Melissa Schluer

These Leather Ballet Flats Are A Great Dupe For A Pricey Brand

Selected review: “I originally bought these ballet flats for the unique color and thought for the price I would give it a try. When I tried them on they were so comfortable and were comparable to my Tieks flats in the way they looked and fit but for a lot less price. I wore them all day without any issues. Needless, to say I ordered another pair in black since I wear flats all the time to work.” – Scuba one

This Fountain Pen Writes Like Buttah

Selected review: “Oh, I simply adore this little gem of a pen. Writes wonderfully, feels divine in ones hand, comes with a charger, and then…there’s the design. I love when you encounter the perfect marriage of form and function; add an incredible price to the mix, and you’ve got perfection. Pilot’s achieved all of that with the MR Retro Pop Collection Fountain pen.” – lilcreative

These Blue Light Blocking Glasses Eliminate Eyestrain Headaches

Selected review: “LOVE these blue light blocking glasses!! I keep them at work and wear them to prevent headaches while staring at the computer all day.

This Gutter Scoop Makes Quick Work Of Dirty Jobs

Selected review: “I’ll never clean another gutter without it. The gutter guards were removed and there was two to three inches of muck in the bottom. The Gutter Getter made short work of a nasty job. No more ripped gloved hands in the wet debris.” – Christopher Smith

These Skin Tone Bandages Are Long Overdue

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These skin tone bandaids are great, meeting the needs of my family. We are all different complexions like most African American familes. Perfect I am ordering them for Christmas presents to my friends and family. We have never had a product created for us, like this.” – KHJones

These Mid-Height Boots Have A Handy Secret

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These boots are just incredible. They fit comfortably from the get-go. The wee pockets are perfect for those days I don’t want to carry a purse and just need a few small things. I’ve received so many compliments from much more fashionable friends over these boots, and they seem to go with just about everything.” – H. A.

These Lightweight Sneakers Are Perfect For Travel

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “So very comfortable. Great walking shoe. Top part is some kind of knit mesh fabric that feels very sock-like, so it doesn’t put any pressure on any part of the top of the foot, which means no blisters or rubbing anywhere….6 months later and I have worn these so much that I’ve worn off all the tread on the soles. I am ordering another pair of the same exact ones.” – J. Lee

These Eyeshadow Shields Get You Out The Door Faster

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These eye makeup shields are just the best! I am one that has to do my foundation and concealer before I do my eye makeup. I like dramatic looks, which is often the culprit of the dreaded shadow fall out. Problem solved. Not only do these catch fallout, but allow for crisper and more even lines on both the bottom and sides of eyes. I am a forever customer.” – Carolyn Rome

These Elastic Laces Never Need Re-Tying

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “I love these laces! I have multiple “systems” in different colors on a good amount of my shoes and not just on athletic/running shoes. They’re fantastic for airport security or if you’re just too lazy/busy to tie your shoes. Once you get them fitting how you want, you’ll never have to worry about them again.” – Jer L.

These Produce Bags Are Kitchen Multitaskers

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “These produce bags definitely exceeded expectation. I have been storing lettuce, kale, celery, and zucchini so far – all have stayed fresher far longer than usual. Also each of the bags is huge and fits a ton of food. I definitely recommend these for anyone who’s trying to use less plastic and wants their food to last longer! Awesome purchase for a great price!” – Lindsey

This Car Electric Blanket Will Change Your Winters

These Eating Claws Are A Godsend For Some

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “My father has Parkinson’s Disease and has a lot of trouble balancing food on a fork. These food grips are perfect for things like salad. The little spikes at the end of each finger grip food securely and are not too big so he can get the food into his mouth before releasing it. They fit well onto his fingers and don’t side off when he is trying to maneuver them to get the food. They definitely makes life easier.” – JessicaR

This Thinking Putty Calms Your Brain

It’s extremely pliable and can be twisted, pulled, and smooshed. I would recommend it for anyone who needs something to help focus their mind.” – Krystal Garrison

This Overflow Drain Cover Creates Dream Baths

  via : Amazon  

Selected review: “This drain cover seriously improved the quality of my life. All I have to do to turn my nightmare tub into a dream was to run the suction cups under the faucet and snap the suction cups into place over the bath drain. It was so easy! I got an instant 5″ more of water!! For $8?! I think yes!!! Crowds applauded and cried, it was beautiful.” – Rachael
