A cleaner and deodorizer to restore your carpet to its glory days, you know, before it acquired that unsettling aroma. Why pay 💰💰💰 to get the thing shampooed ONCE when you can get this long-lasting product and save money in the long run.

JYSK, this cleaner is can only be used with carpet-cleaning machines like this one.

Promising reviews: “I was very skeptical. I just have to say the ratings are accurate! I had a room that had housed some pets while we were away at work and over many years accidents happened. When you’re not there to clean it up right away the carpet gets stained. I had used carpet cleaners with all kinds of recommended cleaners. But it just didn’t have an impact. After using up the last of another cleaner I had I finally opened this one.” —KristenK

A power scrubber because it’s your best chance of cutting through layers of grime and soap scum in your bathroom. It has three heads for various surfaces!

Promising review: “We originally purchased this to scrub our tile floors and grout in the bathrooms. We have a dog that slobbers everywhere and the only way to clean it is to use elbow grease. This thing is magical! We’ve used it on the walls (no paint removed), based boards, door jams and doors, windows, floors, and cabinets. Just dip it into warm soapy water and go to town! Recommending this to all our friends. Cuts cleaning time in half!” —A. Bos

Get it from Amazon for $12.74 (available in six colors).


A set of acne patches to slurp the whiteheads right off your face while reducing the redness that comes with them.

Promising review: “I am a sufferer of terrible, hormonal cystic acne, and I am a pimple popper. I love these patches for several reasons: 1) they prevent me from touching the pimple further infecting the area around it, 2) I feel the pimple heals faster when covered with these (I have had several small pimples disappear overnight while large cystic acne healing within 4-5 days compared to several weeks!), 3) I wear them throughout the day in my corporate, business professional job since they are clear (if over a pimple and turns white, I change it), 4) they are inexpensive so I have them stashed EVERYWHERE and use them ALL THE TIME. I highly recommend them, and I will be a life long buyer of these!” —jmays2800

A set of magnetic glass spice jars so you can save precious cabinet space by sticking them on the fridge.

Promising review: “I am in love with my magnetic spice jars! I recently moved to a small apartment and don’t have the counter or wall space to store spices or a spice rack, so magnetic jars it was! I love how these have a decorative feel while providing a secure way to store the spices. Unlike other magnetic spice jars I feel that these add an extra flair to displaying your assorted spices” —rae.m.wri

Get a 10-pack of small jars from Amazon for $55 (also available in 24 small jars, 12 large jars, and 24 large jars).


A set of leakproof period panties because why waddle around with an uncomfy pad when you can wear these and almost forget you’re on your period?

Cut down on waste and cost with these sustainable panties. I’ll definitely be pairing these panties with a Diva Cup for some extra insurance. Let’s be real, all panties become period panties eventually 🥴.

Promising review: “I had Thinx period panties which are very pricey. They sucked. Not enough coverage in the front and they ripped within the first six months of owning them. These were my replacement and after reading reviews, I was nervous yet excited to try these undies. I LOVE them. They fit as expected (size large, 140Ibs) and have FULL COVERAGE for us front bleeders. No odor comes through and I wore these on a heavy-ish day. For the price, they are BOMB and I will definitely be buying more. YAY for affordable period underwear that WORK!” —Ashley Soskin

Get them from Amazon for $12.90 (available in sizes XS–2XL and three styles).


A shirt folding board to achieve J. Crew level folds with minimum effort while saving space.

Promising review: “I admit I was skeptical and in the beginning a bit challenged on how to use this, but once I got the hang of it I was a T-shirt folding fool! These are not small shirts either many are XXL, XL, L shirts! It took a cluttered mess and created a work of art. I thought I would try using this on my dress shirts to pack for a trip, and I could fit twice as many in my bag compared to the way I used to pack. Again well worth it! I wish I would have caved and bought one sooner. My home will never be without this again.” —E Scrima

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in six colors).


A hanger stacker for organizing hangers your closet simply doesn’t have space for anymore.

Promising review: “Working in retail for a million years, I know how amazing these can be in keeping your life less chaotic! I put off ordering for months, and I’m mad at myself that I did, because these beat a box of hangers hands-down! I ordered two, one for dress/shirt hangers and one for skirt/pant hangers. They arrived today, seem to be made of the same metal that I’ve used in retail stores, appear to be sturdy, and are super easy to assemble! The only thing I had to stop and think about is which side of the base should face up. It comes with all the hardware and tool for assembly. A great buy!” —KatieLee333

Get it from Amazon for $18.29.


A squishy universal dust cleaner that molds to remove every possible speck of dust and dirt. Dusting that old A/C has never been so fun!


Promising review: “I’m both cheap and lazy, this leads me to purchase a lot of used electronics such as old laptops. I didn’t much feel like taking the keyboards off the laptops that I purchased (lazy) for cleaning so I figured, ‘hmmmm, sticky goo to get in the cracks makes sense.’ This product was awesome, it takes a hot minute to kinda get the spread, flatten, and massage motion down to best get the ick off the keyboard, but after that the magic began. The gross residue started coming up and, to my surprise, it started pulling up hidden hairballs that had been long hidden in the depths of the keyboard. I’m thrilled with the result and totally recommend picking it up if you want a low-tech cleaning option.” —sfjones86

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.


A pajama set for bed OR wearing outside as a loungewear set.

Promising review: ” This set is so adorable and perfect for lounging! I love wearing it around my apartment or out and about for running errands. The white color is so chic, clean, and fresh feeling. For a streetwear vibe, I love rolling it up under a bralette for a cropped look and throwing on my sneakers. The material isn’t thick, so you don’t have to worry about being too hot, but just warm enough! And when it comes to comfort, it doesn’t get cozier than this set, so you know I’ll be wearing it all winter break!” —Maggie Prutznal

Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in women’s sizes S—XXL and 13 colors).


A useful toilet paper stocker, because there’s nothing worse than realizing you’re out of paper AFTER you’ve done your business., Amazon

Why put toilet paper in the closet or the cabinet, when you need it in the bathroom? Start storing it there with this sleek, utilitarian piece of furniture.

Promising review: “Living in a shoebox in NY, I constantly look for storage solutions. This design is incredible. It takes up so little footprint and fits perfectly between the toilet bowl and the wall, and is very functional. I hate having to go to the deli store to get a couple of rolls of toilet paper at a time. Now I can get 12 rolls at a time, although if you get the larger rolls, they won’t come through the hole on the bottom. You will have to retrieve the larger rolls by removing the top, which is not a big deal. I put a wonderful Olavie diffuser and body scrub on the top and it looks really nice. It’s a must-have for any small apartment living!” —Ken H

Get it from Amazon for $48.

Promising review: “Awesome for organization! Great product for a great price. Very sturdy, but lightweight and small-under my bathroom sink is *very* small, and the metal frame is thin enough that it doesn’t take up much space, and of course, it allows me to utilize the empty vertical space instead of shoving things all the way to the back wall. I might rearrange the shelves, but it’s just held with screws on each end so that’s easy enough to do-comes with two supports for two shelves, but you can choose from four heights/positions. 👍🏻 Might need to order a second for under the kitchen sink. ” —Jennifer Mowry

Get it from Amazon for $24.87 (available in three colors).


A door hinge cabinet to store excess medicine or beauty products that are currently overflowing from the bathroom.

Promising review: “I absolutely love this cabinet! Our pantry is small so I had spices, oils, and other condiments in our kitchen cabinets. This cabinet allowed me enough room to store all of that, which emptied two of our smaller cabinets for pots and pans. Not only did it give me two extra cabinets to use in my kitchen, but I also have much better access and visibility to spices and other things.” —BJ

Get it from Amazon for $195.18.


A pack of dishwasher cleaner tablets to eliminate the pungent smell of last week’s curry dinner from the kitchen. Clean dishwasher = clean dishes = no smell 🙌🏾!

Promising review: “I wound up using my dishwasher as a drying rack for my hand-washed dishes because my dishwasher was actually making my dishes dirtier. A new dishwasher wasn’t in the budget. I figured it was worth a try. I put two tablets in and WOW! Not only did it remove soap build-up in the dishwasher, it removed a dank smell. Most of all, it removed the film that had accumulated on my dishes; the glasses that I had left in were sparkling. The inside of the dishwasher looks pristine. The directions say I can use this weekly, and that’s my intention. I’m really impressed.” —Ellen Fox

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.98.


A set of tank undershirts because let’s face it, the ones in your drawer are more than ready to retire.


Promising review: “I’ll admit, it was strange at first to wear a garment that had an “amazon essentials” label. They weren’t typically a brand I thought of when it came to clothing. However, I will from now on. I purchased these undershirts because they were cheaper than the name brands. I was surprised to find that they were higher quality than the undershirts I had previously purchased from Hanes and Fruit of the Loom. They fit well, and the material is very comfortable. Highly recommend!” —We Don’t Rent Pigs

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $18.50 (available in men’s sizes XS—XXL and two colors).


A bottle of Poo-Pourri that coats the water with essential oils BEFORE you go so you don’t have to saturate the air with Febreze after the fact.


Promising review: “I can’t believe how well this stuff works. I took it on a cruise because of the tiny cabin space in hopes that it would help cut down on bathroom odor. I’m amazed. It works exactly as advertised. Plus, you only need a tiny amount, so it lasts a long time. I still have almost the whole bottle left. I am going to New York City in a couple of weeks, and I’m staying in an apartment with a shared bathroom. This spray is definitely coming with me!” —Lisa B.

Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (available in three sizes and three scents).

A set of Bottle Bright tablets to quickly clean stains in your mugs, coffee makers, and bottles that have been there forever.

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug; I tried everything — bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING — and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Eventually, they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

A two-sided tea organizer so you can toss those bulky tea boxes. Plus, it’ll be much easier to find tea bags when they’re properly displayed.

Promising review: “Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That’s what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!” —Sarah C.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.


A cushioned knee pad that’ll keep your knees from crackling like a Rice Krispy Treat during home workouts, floor exercises, and more.

It rolls up for easy travel too!

Promising review: “This is just the right thickness to keep my knees from bruising in yoga and pilates classes, but still soft enough to roll up and fit in my gym bag. It arrived pretty quickly and in perfect condition. I highly recommend!” —CJ

Get it from Amazon for $9.68+ (available in six colors).


A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes because plants are mad dramatic when they don’t get fed 😭. Stick this slow-release fertilizer into the soil and boom, they’re good for up to two months.

Promising review: “I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny but since I tend to kill them anyways I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I’ve had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial) the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I’m very happy with this product and it was a great price.” —victoria

Get a pack of 48 spikes from Amazon for $7.84.

Promising review: “Holy cow! This made my Fiddle Leaf Fig and my Calatheas (and more) absolutely gorgeous! It’s so easy to use. You just spray it all over the tops of the leaves and then gently wipe it off each leaf with a soft cloth. I like to support the underside of the leaf with my other hand while I wipe, following the veins. For $5 this is absolutely going to be a staple in my plant care routine!” —Patty

Get it from Amazon for $5.18.


An attachable wine aerator 🍷 to instantly take your wine from “eww, who brought this 🤢” to “mmm this is so good 😯!”


Promising review: “A must-have for any household. 7-Eleven wine has never tasted better! Traders Joe’s two-buck chuck will never be the same. I thought it was gonna be all in my head but this straight Hogwarts magic. And it comes with two! SOLD!” —Analisa

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.95.


A soft silicone ear-saver and mask-extender that’ll keep your cartilage from crumbling under the pressure of wearing a mask all day. You can personalize the mask’s fit with knobs too!


Reviewers loved that it helped their kids’ masks from sliding all over the place.

Promising review: “Works great! My mask stays put. I have a small face. Every mask I wear falls down and doesn’t cover my nose. I’ve had people stop me and ask where they could could buy the strap extenders.” —T. Panzek

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in eight different color combos).


A hooded sherpa-lined jacket that retains enough heat to keep your little bundle of joy warm without weighing them down. It has the cutest little ear accents too 🥰.


Promising review: “I am really happy with this jacket. It is very well made and really heavy. It will be great for my little guy to wear all the way through fall almost like a coat. It does run pretty small, my son is 13 months old but typically wears 18 months. So I ordered 24 month size and it is a little big, but he will fit in it soon. So definitely go up a size if you order for your little ones.” —Brittney Witucky

Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in sizes newborn—24 months and two colors).


A Kong binkie so your fur baby can get through teething without ruining every valuable thing you own.,

Promising review: “We adopted a beagle puppy who’s seven months old, and already much bigger than your average beagle. He destroys everything, having spent his early life in a kennel. It was like bringing a small jungle animal into the house. He walked across the sofa and then the end tables; he didn’t know it would upset us if he ate the bindings off the books on the shelves. And since a large part of his destructive pattern relates to teething, we knew we had to buy some good teething toys and chews if we didn’t want to pay even more to replace our own stuff! This binkie is designed like a regular Kong but with the little handle so you can fill it with treats for the dog to fish out of the hole at the end, and then, once it starts to taste like treats, he can chew on it when empty. And although Ox has been through four phone chargers, three books, a number of paper bags, boxes, newspapers, one skirt, a flip flop…well, you get the idea…he has not destroyed this binkie, and he does like it a lot.” —SeattleBookMama

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes).


A bottle of Radha Beauty rosehip oil to naturally reduce hyperpigmentation, redness, pimples and other discoloration. Reviewers who applied this at night loved waking up to healed skin 😌.

Promising review: “This stuff is life-changing! I have incredibly oily skin that is acne-prone. Although it seems counterintuitive to put oil on my oily skin, it does wonders for keeping my skin clear and refreshed and gives it a healthy glow! I apply two to three drops each night after washing my face and sometimes use it as my moisturizer during the daytime as well.” —RC

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

A drain snake that’s an environmentally friendly alternative to Drain-O that’ll remove the wig in your shower drain.


Promising review: “These really did the trick. The drain in our shower is the WORST. It’s not removable or easy to get a snake down, so I was worried about how these would work. Think of like dorm shower drains. That’s what ours is like, and it’s set into the floor of our shower. These snakes are small enough to get down the rather small holes but magical enough to really pull all of the built up hair that was collecting down there. Very gross honestly. But definitely worth it because now I can be in the shower more than five minutes before the water fills to the top of the 1-2 inch lip in our stand-up shower. A super great deal for a great product.” —Elyse Police

Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.99.


A microwave pasta maker 🍝 to cut the prep time for pasta nearly in half, since you won’t have to wait for the water to boil.


Here are five-ingredient pasta recipes to test out your new pasta maker. This microwave pasta maker works on lasagna and ravioli, too!

Promising review: “I’ve had this thing for less than twelve hours and I’ve used it three times … IT’S MAGICAL. I eat a lot of pasta — like, A LOT. I probably eat pasta at least seven times a week; I love pasta! Boiling water is a pain and I’ve always hated having to wash the big pasta pan afterwards. Well this Fasta Pasta puts that to an end. Now all I have to do is measure my pasta, fill to the water line, and wait. It’s kind of like Ronco’s ‘set it and forget it.'” —Kate Slater

Get it from Amazon for $16.98.


An oversized sweater that’s made of an ultra soft, lightweight knit *and* has pockets.

Promising review: “I love this sweatshirt! It’s such a perfect length to wear with leggings and the material is so soft that it makes this easy to wear all day without wanting to take it off. I could literally sleep in this shirt. I love the look and feel and this is the perfect cozy sweatshirt to lounge around in. I also love that it’s not too thick nor too thin. It’s just right. I would highly recommend this item!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $15.29+ (available in women’s sizes S—XXL and 18 colors).


A streak-free anti-fog spray so you can wear a mask and actually see where you’re going *at the same time*.

Promising review: “I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future.” —Tonya Crippen

Get it from Amazon for $10.55+.


And a cotton beanie that’s very well made and is heavy enough to get you through the winter.
