This Pet Food Container Measures the Perfect Amount
Ever since we got a puppy a few months ago, I’ve been trying to find ways to manage the huge, 30-pound bag of food she eats every month. This pet food container has been a lifesaver for storing smaller amounts and measuring exactly how much she’s supposed to have with the built-in measuring cup lid. It keeps the food fresher, too, since I’m not opening the big bag two times every day to retrieve her food!
This Bliss Face Peel Is So Gentle
I have really sensitive skin that gets a rash if you so much as look at it wrong. But I do like to exfoliate every once in a while to feel fresher, so I use this non-abrasive Bliss jelly glow peel that has fruit enzymes to gently remove dead skin and unclog pores. It also contains niacinamide, which is key for sealing in moisture so you won’t get dried out like with harsher exfoliators.
This Cutlery Organizer Has Transformed My Kitchen Drawer
My kitchen drawer used to be a horror show of unorganized silverware, chopsticks, steak knives, you name it. It’s now looking much better since I got this cutlery organizer that keeps everything in its place. It’s also great for smaller draws since it has such a slim profile, it’ll fit pretty much anywhere.
This Spoon Rest Prevents Messes
Whenever I’m cooking, I never know where to place my dirty spoons and utensils so that I don’t get my stovetop or counters messy. Problem solved with this silicone spoon rest that can hold up to four cooking utensils to keep things clean. The best part is you can just toss it in the dishwasher to clean it, or just rinse it off – since it’s silicone, food will come off super easily.
This Cast Iron Skillet Is a Kitchen Workhorse
If you’re never cooked in a cast-iron skillet, you must start! You can cook anything from eggs to meat to mini pies in this one – since it’s heatproof it can go from the stovetop to oven easily so you get the perfect sear or browning of the top. For $10, you can’t go wrong for your first foray into the world of cast iron.
This Bench Scraper Is So Useful
Not only can you use this bench scraper to clean off counters after rolling out dough, but you can also use it to perfectly portion the dough or cut bread, meat or veggies with ease. It’s so easy to clean and so useful that you’ll be reaching for it every day, according to the stellar reviews.
This Knife Sharpener Is Such a Good Idea
My husband sharpens our knives pretty much every week with this knife sharpener, and he couldn’t love it more. The knives are so sharp they cut through even the toughest meat and veggies with ease, which is much safer than using a dull knife. This one can sharpen all types of knives and even kitchen scissors!
This Sink Strainer Is Much Less Gross
One of my least favorite chores besides cleaning the toilet is emptying out the food and debris from the kitchen sink strainer. I hate hate hate touching the slimy, decomposing food stuck in it! This one’s a much better option since you can just pop the food out instead of getting it out with your fingers, and it’s silicone so it’s so easy to clean.
This Ice Roller Works Wonders
If you wake up with puffy eyes or suffer from allergies as I do, you’re going to love this ice roller. Simply pop it in the freezer then roll it onto any problem areas on your face and it soothes on contact. My friend swears by it for her migraines.
This Geometric Fruit Bowl Is So Pretty
We needed a place to store all our fruit that I buy each week and this pretty geometric fruit bowl was just too pretty to pass up. I love how its form also has a function – all of the holes allow great airflow to keep the fruit fresher, longer. Reviewers love that it’s the perfect size to hold a good amount of fruit and it’s sturdily made.
This Shampoo Brush Brings The Salon Experience Home
I love the feeling of having my hair washed at the salon, especially the scalp massage part. Thankfully, I discovered how to get the same experience at home! This shampoo brush not only massages your scalp, but it gets your hair cleaner since it can really work the lather into your strands.
These Pop Toys Are Addictive
My 10 year old recently got one of these popping toys for her birthday and I can’t put it down! It’s like renewable bubble wrap and is so addictive. These ones come in a set of two so you’ll have one for home and one for your desk at work!

I can’t stand counter clutter, especially around the sink since there’s so much paraphernalia for washing dishes.

This Pizza Cutter Is Super Sharp
Homemade pizza nights are becoming a thing around here, and using a knife to saw through the crust is getting old, fast. This super sharp pizza cutter has been a kitchen MVP for us, you can also use it to cut small veggies, greens, dough, and cookies. Plus there’s a safety feature so my kids can use it, too.
These Cutting Boards Are Color Coded
I read it’s safer to have different cutting boards for meat, veggies, etc, so I got this set of four flexible ones that are color-coded. Simply assign a color to a certain food – for example, yellow is for chicken, green for veggies. These are so easy to clean, too, and they take up virtually no storage room, unlike their bulky, unwieldy cousins.
This Liquid Eyeliner Is So Easy to Apply
With over 1,400 rave reviews, this Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eyeliner is a clear winner for being easy to apply and super long-lasting. Ecstatic reviewers call this the “holy grail” of liners that lasted on one person for 11 hours with no smudging or transferring. And it’s under $6, proving you don’t need to spend top dollar for a high-quality product.
This Facial Brush Deep Cleans
This face cleaning brush comes highly rated for deep cleaning with soft bristles, so it won’t tear up your face. Plus, it’s made from renewable bamboo and recycled materials, so it’s eco-friendly to boot. Just rinse the brush under warm water, apply a cleanser and gently massage the skin to remove all the lurking dirt and oils you didn’t even know were there.
This Moisturizing Face Wash Is Great for Sensitive Skin
If you’ve got dry skin, this moisturizing face wash is a must-have.

Reviewers love how effective it is at cleansing while hydrating, and of course, the super affordable price.
This Face Sunscreen Works So Well
With two little redheads running around, we got through buckets of sunscreen trying to keep them burn-free. This Sun Bum face sunscreen is the best I’ve found for their sensitive skin. It soaks in pretty quickly and doesn’t leave a white cast, so it doesn’t have that greasy feeling that kids (and adults) tend to dislike.

Nobody likes scaly, dried-out, chapped lips. Solve that problem and prevent it from happening again with this lip scrub.

This one’s coconut sorbet flavored, but it also comes in a matcha latte that reviewers love just as much as the original.
This Eye Cream Smooths Out Fine Lines
It’s hard to find a good eye cream that won’t break the bank. Until now! This one from e.l.f. has the same ingredients as the expensive ones – hyaluronic acid and peptides for maximum moisture – but costs under $10.
This Multitool Does It All
This 14-in-1 multitool couldn’t be handier for everyday tasks. It can open a beer, act as a screwdriver, saw through wood, snip branches and cut anything with its sharp knife, among other things. You’ll never want to be without this guy, especially if you’re the outdoorsy type.
These Acne Patches Zap Zits Fast
I’m always amazed at how fast these acne patches work to clear up zits. I put one on before bed, then in the morning, it’s sucked out all the pus, leaving smooth skin in its wake. This set of 40 comes infused with tea tree and calendula oil for extra skin pampering.
These Tide Sticks Get Stains Out Immediately
If, like me, you spill everything to the point that you can’t even wear white shirts without fear of looking like a Jackson Pollock painting, listen up. These Tide-to-go pens get stains out fast if you apply right away, which is why I’ve always got one in my purse for daily emergencies. These also work amazingly well on stubborn chocolate milk stains if you’ve got kids.
These Lip Exfoliators Really Work
Sometimes a person likes to wear bright-colored lipstick to be fancy, but if there are chapped lips underneath they’ll definitely show through and look terrible. That’s why you should use these lip exfoliators that gently and effectively remove dead, dry skin. They couldn’t be easier to use – just add water and start massaging into lips!
This Nail Cream Makes for Beautiful Manis

Lately, I’ve become a bit of a germaphobe (for good reason), and thinking about touching door handles grosses me out. This four-pack of door openers has become my go-to tool for avoiding these germ-infested areas. These ones also have a stylus on one end that I use to push elevator buttons, sign checkout screens, and more.
These Kitchen Shears are So Useful
You can’t go wrong with a good pair of kitchen shears, and these Kitchen Aid ones come highly rated. (They’ve got over 25,000 five-star reviews.) We use ours daily for everything from opening packages of raw meat to cutting veggies like scallions into tiny pieces.
These Safety Gloves are Cut Proof
Remember when I said my husband liked to sharpen knives all the time? Well, these safety gloves are what protect my fingers from tons of potential kitchen accidents! I also have another pair for the garden for pulling up plants with thorns and burrs.
This Drain Snake Set Gets the Job Done Cheaply
If I had owned this drain snake set, I would not have just spent over $200 to have a plumber unclog hair from my drain. Seriously, this kit comes with everything for a DIY drain fix – a drain auger, three hair catcher drain snakes, and an unclogging tool. Almost 8,000 reviewers sing its praises, along with the gory details of what came out of their clogged drains!
This Dog Leash is Great for Night Walks
Now that our puppy can go for long walks a few times a day, we needed a good leash that was reflective for nighttime walks. We love this one, which comes in multiple sizes depending on how well your dog walks on the leash or how big your dog is. The padded handle makes it so comfortable to hold, even on those long treks!
This Jar Opener is So Easy to Use
I’m usually quite sufficient, but I will admit there are times when I can’t for the life of me get a jar open when my husband’s not home to muscle the lid off. But I’d be able to with this jar opener that has grooves for multiple lid sizes so you always get a good grip! It’d be perfect for someone with arthritis in their hands, too. Also comes with a bottle opener!
