This Kitchen Tool That You Can Use For Everything
via: AmazonIn an effort to save money, my husband and I have started making an effort to cook at home as often as possible. This was tough at first since I love going out to eat more than anything else in the world, but since I bought this insanely brilliant kitchen utensil, I've actually looked forward to cooking. It has basically a million different functions and sits up on your counter so you don't get sauce everywhere.
These Hand Mitts That Transform Rough Skin
via: AmazonThe minute the weather starts to get chilly, the skin on my hands immediately turns into sandpaper. It gets to the point where my knuckles get so cracked that it actually bleeds, and no amount of lotion can restore it to its previous pre-winter state. That's where these hand mitts come in. Just five minutes in these babies and my hands come out oh-so-smooth and beautifully moisturized. I couldn't get through winter without them.
This Steamer That Makes It Easy To Eat Healthy
via: AmazonI bought this steamer so I could make my own baby food once my son was old enough but soon discovered that it's a kitchen tool that I should have bought years ago. It's ridiculously easy to steam an entire meal at once (meat in the bottom, veggies on the top) and is basically foolproof. Plus, it's under $25 bucks!
These Wine Glasses That Keep Your Chardonnay Chilled
via: AmazonWhat can I say? I like my wine. And I like my wine chilled. Not room temperature, not kind-of cold, but chilled. In fact, I'd rather drink nothing than a lukewarm glass of white wine. So these wine freeze cooling cups were basically invented with me in mind. Simply pour some non-chilled wine into one and marvel at how instantly frosty it becomes.
This Utility Pen That Has Eight Different Uses In One Handy Product
via: AmazonSeeing as I am now a totally grown-up lady, I like to be prepared for any situation.

This Glass Nail File That Gives You A Perfect Mani At Home
via: AmazonIf your life is anything like mine, you have basically zero extra time or money to go to the salon to get your nails done. So when my friend Kate whipped one of these out when I was over at her house a few weeks ago I was immediately intrigued but figured it was over-priced and not worth the hype. But this thing both works amazingly well and is somehow only $11.99. I want one in every color.
This Portable Blender Gives You The Perfect On-The-Go Snack
via: AmazonBecause my days are so busy, it's often a challenge to get anything healthy into my diet. Sometimes I'll go all day long without putting any non-processed food into my body, and I've definitely been feeling the repercussions lately. So, in an effort to change that, I bought this travel blender, which allows me to make healthy smoothies and carry them with me for the perfect on-the-go snack.
This Razor Burn Formula Leaves Skin Silky Smoothe
via: AmazonI tend to buy really cheap razors, which, as you can probably imagine, leave my legs covered in ingrown hairs and razor burn. The only thing that's been able to combat this uncomfortable and embarrassing problem is this Tend Skin solution. I just slather it on after shaving and it makes a world of difference. Don't rock a short skirt without it!
This Accupressure Cuff That Combats Headaches
via: AmazonI've suffered from migraines since middle school, and have tried just about every medication possible to try to get some relief.

I seriously can't live without this thing!
This Silicone Freezing Tray That Makes Meal Prep A Breeze
via: AmazonI could probably eat soup three times a day for a solid month. I love how cozy it makes me feel, and, especially during fall and winter months, I instantly get a warm and fuzzy feeling whenever I slurp down a bowl of chicken noodle, butternut squash, or coconut curry. This Souper Cubes silicone freezing tray helps you keep your leftovers fresh for months so no deliciousness goes to waste.
This Running Light That Adds Safety To Nighttime Jogs
via: AmazonSince having my son, I've been trying to be more active in an effort to lose my extra baby weight, which has included running in the evenings after he's gone to bed. After telling me for months how unsafe it is to run in the dark without anything reflective, I finally made my husband happy and purchased this running light. It's small, lightweight, and surprisingly bright.
These Vacuum Storage Bags That Free Up Your Closet Space
via: AmazonBig, bulky sweaters are pretty much my favorite thing to wear. Granted, I live in Wisconsin, so this makes sense for about half of the year. But during the warmer months, my drawers tend to get ridiculously cramped. These vacuum storage bags can hold a surprising amount of clothing and vacuum down to basically nothing, thus saving you tons of space and making you feel instantly grown-up and organized.
These Slippers That You'll Never Want To Take Off

This case keeps them safe and avoids you losing one, which would be almost as annoying as having to constantly untangle them.
This Cutting Board That Has An Ultra Clever Design
via: AmazonThink back to the last time you had to chop up a ton of produce for a recipe. When you went to drop it all into your pot, did half of it fall onto the ground instead? That's because cutting boards are awkwardly designed. Until now, that is. This foldable mat flips the script on traditional cutting boards to give you a product that you didn't even know you needed.
This Mini Compost Bin That Fits On Your Counter
via: AmazonI've been trying to make a point to be better to the environment. This means I always have a few reusable grocery bags in my car, we switched to hand towels instead of disposable paper ones, and I've convinced my husband that we need to start composting. This tiny compost bin fits perfectly on our counter which makes it super simple to dump our food scraps into instead of the garbage disposal.
This Packing List That Keeps You From Forgetting Travel Essentials
via: AmazonEvery time I pack for a big trip, I always end up forgetting something important.

This Iron Holder That Takes Up Hardly Any Space
via: AmazonBefore I bought one for myself, I always just assumed that irons and ironing boards were something your parents had and weren't really a necessity.

This Handy Guide That Helps You Keep Your Plants Alive
via: AmazonAt the ripe old age of 32, you'd think I would have learned how to keep a houseplant alive, but alas, I have not.

So when my mother bought me this book for Christmas last year, at first I was offended, but then I realize that I really, really needed it. Haven't killed one since.
This Earax Removal Kit That's Disgustingly Satisfying
via: AmazonWant to know something shocking? Sticking q-tips into your ear canals is actually not good for you. Shocking, I know, but it took me until a few months ago to actually stop doing it.

This Hanging Organizer That Keeps Your Imporant Papers Safe
