We go from being carefree and silly to then realizing we have many responsibilities and need to adult. Adulting is hard, we all know this, but it truly does not have to be. My favorite parts of adulting are staying up late and being able to do what I please. Though there are parts where I could use a little help, really, we all can. Making adulting easier is why we’ve gathered this list of items perfect for all of us grown adults. With the right items in your life to help you get through your day-to-day, adulting can be a breeze. We all could use some suggestions with organization and I love these shower shelves for that. The divided pan is a major game changer for me and it’s a definite need for every adult. You might even want to snag a few of those as gifts, they’re incredible.

The Best Soap For Dudes
If I had a dollar for every guy I’ve seen in my social media newsfeeds talking about this soap, I’d have a lot of dollars. And, apparently, the praise on Amazon is consistent with the accolades I’ve seen people I know in real life throwing around. This exfoliating soap bar by Dr. Squatch has a refreshing cedar and orange fragrance and is handmade using a cold process method. Guys won’t care about all of that; just know it smells good and works well.
This Personal Blender is Just the Right Size
I got this personal sized blender and couldn’t be happier with the results. There’s an included funnel that you can use for adding protein powders without the mess, and a mini ice cube tray, plus the blender recharges via USB – how cool is that?
I Chews You, Chewsy!
I adore these individually wrapped cranberry grape flavored chews that are perfect for boss ladies on-the-go. They’re delicious, are low in sugar, and they don’t stick to my teeth! Their formula contains 22 essential nutrients for active women who need daily immune and energy support. It even has biotin to improve your hair, skin, and nails. I just love that it has everything I need in one gummy, so I don’t have to buy a bunch of different supplements to get the same results.
Sleep Tight With Each Chewsy Bite
I’ve tried almost every natural remedy to help me fall asleep but nothing has worked! I was hesitant to take supplements because of the artificial ingredients many of them contain, but I decided to finally give it a shot with Chewsy Peaceful Sleep Chews since they are scientifically formulated with Non-GMO nutrients, including natural flavors and sleep botanicals.
This Grill Gets High Marks
It’s too hot to grill, O.K.? But, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy all of your grilled favorites … inside … from the comfort of air conditioning. This smokeless indoor grill has a large 14-inch cooking surface and an adjustable temperature setting up to 450 degrees. The best part is that you can still get those glorious grill marks.

These Dog Bowls Prevent Spills
When we got our puppy, one of the first of many purchases was this dog bowl with included mat.

The best part is she can’t tip the bowls over so it’s much less clean-up for me!
This Caddy Corrals Your Cleaning Tools
Washing dishes is a fact of life; yes, even if you own a dishwasher. That means you need a scrub brush or sponges … or both. But, where to store them?

Save All the Space With These T-Shirt Organizers
Confession time: my drawers are a mess. I don’t really fold things so much as mash them in there and hope they fit. It’s not ideal. So I’ve been eyeing these t-shirt organizers. They’re not just for t-shirts: any shirts fit into them and allow you to neatly stack your shirts. Plus, you can easily see where each item is.

Clean Your Clothes Cleaner
I had a front-load washer and dryer some years back and I loved them with one exception: The washer would get super stinky. Stinky enough that I had to start leaving the door open to let it air out. That was pre-Amazon and pre-Affresh washing machine cleaner. These tabs go in your machine one time a month to help attack odor-causing residue.

No scrubbing or wiping is required.

I received this Takeya Coldbrew Maker as a gift a few years back and since then, it’s been in daily rotation in my fridge.

Just fill up the filter then place it in the fridge overnight, in the morning you have a cool quart of caffeine waiting to wake you up!

Anyone that lives in a snowy climate knows what a pain it is to clean off and scrape the ice from a snowy windshield.
