This five pack of EEEKit 6Ft Nylon Braided Micro USB Charging Sync Data Cable Charger Cords feature a tough woven design so they stay looking and performing like new for years to come.
These Headphones That Are Wireless and Sweat-Proof
via: WalmartWe've all done it at least once: You're at the gym working up a sweat on the treadmill, you're getting pumped up by your favorite song, when suddenly your thumb accidentally catches your headphone cord and rips the ear buds out of your ears.

Something like this Umbra Otto Automatic Soap Dispenser, for example. Seriously, how cool is this product?? Not only does it look like it was designed by Apple, but it also works on a motion sensor system so it automatically produces the perfect amount of soap simply with a wave of your hand. So magical!
These Handy Snakes That Keep Your Drains Running Smoothly
via: WalmartI have a LOT of hair, and I'm pretty sure it's not a coincidence that the drains in my house seem to constantly be clogged. For a while I would just buy bottle after bottle of Drano, and while that would help things for a while, like clockwork they'd start draining slowly again just a few weeks later. That's why I can't recommend these Bastex Drain Snake Clog and Hair Remover Cleaning Tools enough. For under six bucks, these plastic snakes pull the disgusting contents of your drains out of your sink and save you money in the long run.
These Rechargeable Batteries That Give You Power When You Need it Most
via: WalmartOkay, so this is a TOTAL first world problem, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when the batteries in my remote control die and I don't have any fresh ones in the house. Actually having to get up and change the channel?! That's my idea of torture. But with this Rayovac Recharge 4 Position AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger, that horrifying scenario is no longer a reality.
This Flash Drive That's Seriously Small
via: WalmartAs a professional writer, I'm constantly running out of space on my laptop for all my files. I used to have a clunky external hard drive, but since I'm constantly traveling and working in coffee shops, this was a less than convenient way to expand my storage space. Then I found this Samsung USB 3.1 Flash Drive FIT Plus 32GB, which upgrades my storage by 32 gigabits without being obtrusive.
This TV Antenna That Gives You WAY More Channels
via: WalmartWhy pay for an expensive cable bill each month when you can spend $17.99 for this 1byone TV Antenna - HDTV Antenna 40 Miles Amplified HDTV Antenna with USB Power Supply 16.5 Feet Coaxial Cable instead? The 40 mile range allows you to access even far away towers and the easy to install design means you're just minutes away from watching channels you never dreamed possible.
This Foot Rest That Makes Shaving a Breeze
via: WalmartMy husband and I recently bought a house with only one shower, and it just happens to be a stall-style with no bathroom. This makes it difficult for me to shave, and before I found this product I was forced to sit all the way down on the shower floor to shave my legs, which you can imagine was somewhat awkward. This Shower Room Foot Rest has been a serious shower game-changer.
This Fur Removing Broom That's a Must-Have For Pet Owners
via: WalmartI have a dog, and while she doesn't look like she would shed very much, she proves me wrong every. single. day. There is hair all over my house, and no matter how many times we vacuum it doesn't seem to make a difference. This FURemover® Broom picks up the hair that I didn't even know was embedded in my carpet for who knows how long.
This Timer Cube That's Fun And Functional
via: WalmartOld school egg timers are SO last century. This Cube Timer is not your Grandmother's timer. Although, she would probably find this product pretty darn cool. With 1, 5, 10 and 15 minute timer settings, this four sided cube doesn't rely on switches or use an irritating ring when your time is up. The various sides simply light up as it counts down. Nifty, huh?
This Ove Glove That Chefs Swear By
via: WalmartOne word that pretty much everyone who knows me would use to describe me is "clumsy". I'm constantly dropping things, cutting myself, and, most often, burning myself. So a friend recommended I purchase an Ove' Glove-the As Seen On TV product that both customers and professional chefs alike are raving about-I took their advice and bought one. And I haven't burned myself since. You've got to try it for yourself!
This Phone Case That Holds Your Essentials
via: WalmartRecently, I grabbed some lunch with an old high school friend and was completely struck by his phone case. It had built-in spots for his credit cards, driver's license and cash, and he no longer even carried a wallet. "I got it from Walmart," he said, and sent me the link. This Silk iPhone 7/8 Wallet Case is under $15 bucks and comes in a variety of fun colors.
This Mouldable Glue That Fixes EVERYTHING
via: WalmartI can't emphasize this enough: This stuff does EVERYTHING.

Got a favorite pair of sneakers that need repairing? Is your phone charger starting to fray? Did you crack your phone screen? This stuff does it all and saves you money in the long run.
This Power Strip That Puts All Over Power Strips To Shame
via: WalmartThe house my husband and I recently bought was built in 1926, and while it's filled with old-school charm, it also has about two outlets every 1,000 square feet. At first we had no idea how we were going to plug in all of our devices, but then we found this amazing Globe 7732001 Home Appliance Six-Outlet Swivel Surge Tap and it solved the problem instantly.
This Faucet Fountain That Turns Any Faucet Into a Drinking Fountain

This Smart Thermometer That Connects To an App
via: WalmartI get sick a lot. I don't know why, but growing up I was always the kid on the block that had to stay inside with a thermometer in my mouth while all the other kids played kickball in the ally. And this still happens as an adult. But now I use this Vicks Smart Temp Wireless Smartphone Thermometer, which connects to a free downloadable app that gives you medication reminders and advice on what to do about your temperature reading.
This Clever Strainer That Clips Right Onto Your Pot
via: WalmartThis is one of those products that makes you wonder why you didn't invent it yourself.
