It's compact enough to fit into your carry-on luggage. You won't want to travel without it! And speaking of luggage...

This Luggage Scale Is Another Must for Travelers

When it comes to packing up your suitcase, you definitely don't want to have to estimate how much everything weighs — not only can it mean you're stuck lugging a heavy bag around; it could even cost you more money in baggage handling fees. This scale clips onto your bag and can weigh bags up to 110 pounds. It's also compact, portable, and durable, so you can bring it along with you to use on your return trip, too!

This Egg Peeler Will Make Your Life Easier

Along with wet socks and your headphone cord getting caught on a door handle, a messily peeled hard-boiled egg is one of life's little annoyances that can really drive you nuts. This tool can't help with the socks or headphones, but it can help with the eggs! This specially designed peeler quickly and easily removes the shells from your cooked eggs in a smooth motion. You can also use it to peel avocados and other fruits and veggies! Toss it in the dishwasher for easy clean up!

Every Pet Owner Should Have Some FurZappers

These little sticky discs remove pet hair from your clothes while you wash and dry them! Just toss them in your washer whenever you're doing a load of laundry.

This 5-in-1 Wine Tool Will Make You Feel Fancy

It's an aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker. Whew! It does pretty much everything except drink the wine for you — which is good, 'cause that's the fun part! This simple tool only costs about 5 bucks, but it can easily make even the cheapest bottles of wine taste much better. You can also use it for coffee syrups, sodas, sparkling waters, cooking oils, vinegars, and more.

This Eyeliner Stamp Creates the Perfect Wing Every Time

Putting on makeup sure can be tricky! Anyone who's ever tried to master the winged eyeliner look knows how quickly it can go from "passable" to "panda-eye." This clever little stamp takes all the guesswork and fine muscle movement out of the equation. Simply stamp on your wing and you're good to go. The eyeliner itself is both waterproof and smudge proof.

The Magic Stone Is the Barbecue Cleaner You've Been Looking For

Everyone loves cooking out on the grill, but no one loves doing the cleanup. The Magic Stone makes it easier than ever to scrub all the grease, dirt, and grime off your grill with minimal effort on your part. It's made from heat-treated glass that is completely odorless, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic. It also prevents the spread of E. coli, salmonella, and other harmful bacteria.

This Dish Squeegee Makes Doing the Dishes Easier Than Ever

Whether you're washing by hand or filling up the dishwasher, scraping food and residue from your plates is an important first step in getting the dishes in shipshape condition. A simple swipe with this squeegee removes leftover food from your dishes. The curved shape also lets you use it to scrape out bowls. You could even use the squeegee to clean out your sink!

These Bracelets Repel Mosquitos!

And they look stylish while they're doing it! They're made with all natural plant-based oil, making them a non-toxic and DEET-free solution for both adults and kids to keep those vicious mosquitos away from your precious blood.

If you don't feel like wearing them, you could also hook them to your backpack or a kid's stroller.

The Flip-It Deluxe Assures You Get Every Last drop of Mustard

Obviously, storing condiment bottles upside-down is the best way to keep all the good stuff at the dispenser end. Unfortunately, many condiment bottles aren't made to stand up that way (which if you ask me, makes zero sense at all). That's where the Flip-It Deluxe comes in. You can attach it to pretty much any bottle in order to store it upside-down and make decorating your hamburgers and hot dogs much easier.

The Smart Funnel Is Another Way to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck

Once you get down to the end of the soap bottle, you may be tempted to just dump the whole thing in the trash — but there's still a lot of soap in there! You probably don't have time to hold the old bottle up and wait for the viscous fluid to make its way slowly into the new container...but the Smart Funnel does! Use it to attach two bottles together in order to empty one directly into the other. It makes so much sense.

This Optical Pen Mouse Is as Fun to Use As You Think It'd Be

(Which is to say: really fun.) You probably use a standard computer mouse pretty much every single day, but it's not always the best tool for the job. Sometimes you need to make movements that are slightly more delicate and fine-tuned. For times like that, a pen mouse is your friend. A pen mouse can also be a great tool for anyone with limited mobility or soreness in their joints.

These Lids Keep Your Food from Boiling Over

Simply place one of these lids over a pot of boiling water and rest assured that they'll prevent the water from boiling over. This listing is for a set of two lids — one has a diameter of 10.2" and the other is 11" wide. The lids are non-stick and super easy to clean. They can also be used as food covers in the microwave in order to prevent messes.

The Zero Waste Cap Makes So Much Sense

Have you ever gotten to the end a bottle of lotion and been convinced that there was more product in there that you just couldn't get to? Well, unless you were using one of these caps, there probably was! The Zero Waste Cap lets you switch pump bottles into squeeze bottles so you never have to wonder whether you're getting your money's worth again.

These Bag Cinches Will Keep Your Bread Fresh

The bread you buy from the store probably comes with either a twist tie or a bread clip on the bag, but you and I both know it's only a matter of time before the twist tie ends up in the trash. They're annoying to put back on every single time! This cinch isn't, though! With just a press of the button, you can attach it to your bread bag (or something else!) and keep your food fresh and safe from scavengers.

Clean Your Makeup Brushes with This Cleaner Sponge

This product really shines if you happen to be applying more than one color with the same brush. Rather than just tapping the brush off or rubbing it with a tissue, simply swirl it on this sponge. It removes all the remaining eyeshadow from the brush, allowing you to switch colors without muddying up your look. You don't have to use any chemicals or wait for the brush to dry!

This Doorknob Organizer Keeps Your Stuff Exactly Where You Need It

How many times have you gone to leave your house only to realize that you have no idea where your keys are? And then once you find your keys, your sunglasses are nowhere to be found...and so on, and so on. This handy little pouch hangs directly on the doorknob and has several pockets for holding all the stuff you need it to. Before you know it, you'll be able to head out right when you want to.

The CouchCoaster Is a Cupholder for Your Couch

Couches are super comfy and amazing, but most of them have one glaring problem: No cupholders! Nobody wants to have to reach to grab their glass or mug off a nearby coffee table, right? That's where the CouchCoaster comes in. It attaches directly to the arm of a couch or armchair and provides the perfect location to set your glass or mug. Now, you can sit back, relax, and grab your glass whenever you want it.

Shadow Shields Protect You from Eyeshadow Fallout

There's nothing worse than completing the perfect eye makeup and then realizing that you've gotten sparkly dust all over your face and ruined your foundation. With Shadow Shields, that won't happen. Simply place one of the shields below your eye before applying eyeshadow and all that sparkly dust will land there instead! They also protect against mascara smudges, which is seriously a godsend.

This Notebook Is Waterproof!

You never know when you're gonna need to write something down — it might be in the middle of some pouring rain! The Rite in the Rain notebook is filled with 50 double-sided sheets of totally weatherproof paper. The paper repels water, sweat, grease, and mud and won't turn to mush whenever you use it in less than ideal weather conditions. And all you need is a regular ol' No. 2 pencil! (Though you can also use a Fisher Space Pen if you're so inclined.)

This Cat Paw Doorstop Is Just Plain Adorable

Look, there are plenty of options out there to choose from when it comes to doorstops. You've got black plastic wedges, brown plastic wedges, and lighter brown plastic wedges. They'll all do the job just fine. But they're not cute, and you deserve to have cute things in your life! This doorstop looks like a cat paw! It can be used in either the paw-up or paw-down position. This is the doorstop you want. It's purrfect.

This Bookmark Looks Like a Little Lamp!

Here's another little gadget that's super cute for everyday use! If you're anything like me, you have several different bookmarks that you cycle through as you start reading new books. Most of mine are just cheap pieces of cardstock, but these! These are so adorable, I think I could probably replace my entire bookmark collection with them.

These Sticky Notes Are Also Divider Tabs

I feel like there's a lot of potential for these tabbed sticky notes. I'm not in school anymore, but I kind of wish I was so that I could get these and use them for all of my classes. You could stick them to the beginning of each chapter in your book and take notes covering the most important details.

This Sink Caddy Is the Perfect Place to Store Your Sponge

I usually keep my sponge and dish scrubber balanced precariously on the divider between the two sink halves, and let me just tell ya: It's not great. They constantly fall off into the sinks themselves and are also constantly soggy and kinda gross. This caddy hangs off the faucet and provides the perfect little cubby for your sponge. It's like a little home for your sponge friend!

This Slotted Spoon Is Also a Dinosaur

I mean, come on. Do you really need any further convincing that this is the coolest kitchen item around? I don't think so. But just in case: It stands up on its own four little legs! Come on! Whether you use it for rinsing off veggies or scooping hard-boiled eggs out of boiling water, Nessie will have your back. And look adorable the whole time, too.

These Odor Eliminators Will Make Your Life Smell Better

They're filled with activated bamboo charcoal which absorbs gross odors. You can stick 'em in your closet, car, shoes, gym bag, linen closet — really, just anywhere that smells a little gross and could benefit from a bit of a refresh. Best of all, they're safe to use around pets and kids! This listing is for a pack of two, so depending on how stinky your life is, you may want to grab a couple.

The Cloud Catcher Is a Great Place to Keep Your Q-Tips

It's always good to have Q-tips on-hand. That being said, the box they come in usually leaves quite a bit to be desired. The Cloud Catcher has a clever design that makes it so that your Q-tips resemble a cloud! If that's not the most delightful cotton swab storage solution you've ever seen in your life, I just don't know what to tell you.

This Toilet Paper Stocker Is Also Very Clever

Part shelf, part storage, all awesome. This little caddy holds several rolls of toilet paper and is small enough to fit into just about any bathroom. When it's time for a new roll of TP, just reach down and grab one from the caddy — it's right there! No more having to awkwardly try to grab a fresh roll from the cupboard across the room...

Wishpins Are Pushpins You Can Wish On!

When you're not using them to secure important memos and photos to a corkboard, Wishpins can be stored in the dandelion-stem holder, creating a lovely little dandelion right on your desktop. When they are in use, they still look lovely and work to hold everything on the bulletin board for easy access! Each stem holds 19 pusphins. This would be a great gift for a college student or someone starting a new job!
