Promising review: "You NEED this. This product is AMAZING. When I run errands, I hate bringing both a water bottle and coffee tumbler. This product solves that issue. I ran it through my dishwasher to clean it, and the plastic didn’t morph at all. 10/10 recommend!" —Megan Huffman

The lids are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.
Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these can lids! For years I have wasted soda. In the relentless Texas heat, I would grab an ice cold soda, drink about half to either have it warm up or insects get inside of it. Then I didn't want to finish the second half of the can. If a fly landed on the top, I had to toss it in the trash. If I put the warm can back in the refrigerator, it would not be fresh and bubbly when I went back for it. Now, I don't have to worry about the bugs or the carbonation! These caps also make taking my soda with me in the car a lot more convenient. Excellent idea!" —Michelle S.

Each swipe can cover about three lines of text, making it impossible to read from the front or back. Each roller gives up to 1,000 impressions. When it's *finally* time for a refill, you can purchase extra cartridges here.
Promising review: "I read a lot of mixed reviews of other rollers before deciding on this one. Some people mentioned the small size as a problem, but for me it's a plus. I don't have room for a big gadget. I was also put off by rollers that spread the word CONFIDENTIAL, drawing attention to what you're trying to hide. This one uses a pattern of letters that leaves an unintelligible black thicket of lines. I use it every day, and while it still has plenty of ink, I'm glad it is refillable. Highly recommended! Now I can recycle things I used to have to shred and discard." —rainforest
Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in five colors, as well as in multipacks).
Promising reviews: "I laughed when I first saw the picture of this item. I thought, well if they don’t work I’ll use them for a costume. But they are amazing at pulling weeds. I use mine for those pesky weeds in the rocks. One pull and you get root and all." —cynthia Williams
"I was skeptical about how well these are made. I stand corrected. These are well made and will stand up to years of gardening fun. Besides, even if you never actually dig any dirt with them, they are well worth the exclamations of 'what the heck are THOSE?" from everyone.'" —Regmanabq
Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in two colors and as a pack of two).
PS: you can also use the side legs to help you stand back up when you're done kneeling!
Promising reviews: "This is perfect for when you need to pull weeds, plant or clean up flowerbeds, or pick berries. as We are seniors and it helps us get up off the ground. If we didn’t have this, we would be setting on the ground until one of us could pull the other up. It is the best item we have ever bought." —CSD
"I’m 70 and have a passion for gardening. Much to my dismay I found when I got down to weed I couldn’t get back up again. This bench tool has made my weeding days enjoyable again…got another 10 years in me!" —RC Miller
Get it from Amazon for $39.90+ (available in two colors and in two versions).
Promising review: "LOVE THESE! They are perfect in every way. It's the pill organizer box I didn't know I needed. They are durable, easy to use, and waterproof! The compartments are a good size and it fits nicely into my bag. I am going on a five-week trip and need to take six different prescription meds and supplements with me. I'm happy to say that I will be well organized with these pill boxes." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "Bought these for my pregnancy based on a tip from a recently pregnant friend. Total game-changer. Only had to buy a new sized bra once, and then used these for the rest of my pregnancy, as my cup size didn't change any more but omg my ribcage just kept on expanding and expanding to accommodate baby. IMO, these make wearing a regular bra possible during those body-changing portions of pregnancy, saving me money in the long run. Additionally, they work as expected...they clip onto the original spacers easily, they match up with the original hooks really well, and they are very comfortable and easy to use. Best money I've ever spent on Amazon. Buy them, you won't regret it." —Queen Bee

Tidy-Cup is a woman-owned and family-owned small business founded by Julie Reinhold, who was tired of economy-sized detergent containers dripping all over her laundry room. Her ingenious little drip catchers are made in the USA and can easily be cleaned by rinsing with warm water.
Promising review: "I had no idea I needed this until I saw it on TikTok. Listen, it’s the little things that matter. This little thing saves me the headache of a laundry room mess. I love it. Fits perfectly on my liquid detergent. No more messes!" —Christina

One side is the curved wing stamp, and the other is a regular fine tip liner for defining the rest of the eye. It comes in a pack of two, one for each eye.
Promising review: "Got this before a trip I took a few days ago. I have never been able to do wing eyeliner properly so I was excited to try this. It's very pigmented and goes on beautifully! I've tried other liquid eyeliners before and they were so watery and not close to a dark black I wanted at all but this product was great. I did my makeup and put this eyeliner on at 9 a.m., traveled two hours, walked around a city for about three hours and it was warm so I was sweating, and then went to an NBA game. After all that time (about 16 hours!), the eyeliner was just as perfect as I had put it on! I love this product and can't wait to use it more often!" —Elizabeth

Former BuzzFeed Shopping writer Brittany Ross has these: "I got the 2-pound weights as a Christmas gift, and as someone who is ~not~ the most enthusiastic when it comes to most forms of exercise, I think these are a great option if you want to get a little more out of even a simple walk around the block. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing with their pretty colors and matte finish, but they're also quite comfortable, given that they're adding extra resistance to your movements. I highly recommend if you want to make things a little more challenging for yourself while feeling good about wearing them in public. I got several compliments on them while I was out and about!"
Promising review: "I fell in love with the color selection and decided to give them a shot. They're one of my favorite purchases to date, because I use these ALL. THE. TIME. When I'm cleaning, organizing, or doing little chores around the house, I slip these on for subtle extra resistance, and when I'm doing bodyweight workouts, I have them on. They are so comfortable, and I can tell they've been helping me. I can't recommend them enough <3." —Ashley
Get a set of two weights from Amazon for $55+ (available in eight colors and as 1 or 2 pounds).
Promising review: "This little tool is amazing. Pull it from its holster and you can immediately sever a seatbelt with one swipe. More importantly, the spring loaded punch focuses all released energy to a single point of contact. Press the black plunger to any window and apply firm pressure. The release will crystalize the window, allowing for rapid entry or escape. A real need to have on every keychain that one day may save your life." —Thwack
Get it from Amazon for $9.00+ (available in three colors).
Promising review: "If you're on the fence, just do it. They are half the price of MaxTrax and just as good. I haven't used them as a bridge, but they literally saved mine and my wife's lives in a recent Colorado blizzard on a horrible mountain pass. Good tires and 4LO couldn't get me up the 12% grade in about 1 foot of fresh snow on top of 1-2 inches of ice, and we were just sliding sideways toward the literal cliff. We got these babies out, wedged them against the front and rear opposite corners and it got us out of the terrible situation and back home." —Tony

Promising review: "We have had our vehicles stolen a couple times from our apartment building. Woke up one day to go to work, and the truck and trailer were gone. Called the cops who couldn’t do much at the time. We hopped in our family vehicle and followed where the AirTag said it was located. After about an hour, we tracked down and recovered all our stuff. We would have never found anything without these." —Kimberly Bishop

Promising review: "As I disposed my spent K-cup coffee cartridge several times daily, I began to realize that the world was trashing hundreds of millions of these things daily. I could cut down my plastics consumption and save some money by using a refillable K-cup filter. I have tried several filters that did not produce a decent tasting cup. With this, my coffee tastes as full-bodied as it does from a K-cup or drip-style coffee maker. I like the design of this cup having a bottom screen and a domed lid which distributes the water, and the tiny O ring in the lid ensures all the water is expressed through the filter. Only takes a few seconds to fill the cup and it washes out as easily. This is the one for me."—Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I am not a gardener and don't have a lot of luck with plants. That said, these spikes are amazing. You can see the difference in weeks. This is the best indoor plant product I have ever used, mainly because it is so darn easy. I definitely recommend these plant spikes." —V. Kline

The pet umbrella is a full leash on its own! It works best for smaller dogs.
Promising review: "This is an amazing item! My dog hates the rain and doesn't like anything hovering over him. Because of the panels being clear he doesn't realize there is something covering him. He just knows he is staying dry." —Njoi Bronx
Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three versions).
Promising review: "This product is something I didn’t know I needed. It’s like the creator crawled into my soul and found the deepest desire of my heart and then invented it. If you think I’m being dramatic, you should try soggy cereal and then eat cereal from THIS bowl. I’ll take 30 more, please, and hand them out as gifts." —Sarah F.
Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three colors and in packs of two or three).
It can be used as an end table, side table, or a nightstand!
This is basically the nightstand of my dreams. For context, I've held off for a long time on furniture with charging capabilities. I figured plain-old side tables would be more than satisfactory since I already had outlets in the wall and I didn't really need anything fancy, right? One week into owning this outlet-equipped table, and I can say that I was emphatically wrong. TBH I'd probably be more embarrassed about my huge about-face if I didn't love this thing so damn much. No more hanging off my bed like a bat to keep my phone plugged into an outlet across the room, and STILL having the charger unplug from the outlet because it's been pulled too taut. No more having to choose which device I can use from my bed while charging, because the outlet would only accommodate one at a time. And, no more dealing with the eyesore of overlapping cables criss-crossing on my nightstand. This wonder nightstand contains grooves on its sides so the top of the table can close fully without pinching the cables, hiding the sight of messy cords (and tucking away any private items you want to keep close by but not in sight).
There's tons of room on the top and bottom shelves to keep all your bedside items close, a delight for me since I like my bedside tables to hold a LOT so I have everything I need to chill before bed and in case I need ANYTHING in the middle of the night, lol. The fabric organizer is also an unexpectedly nice touch (no more misplacing my remote). Basically, I'm obsessed with this thing and I don't even want to think about a time when I didn't have it. I also think this is an amazing deal given that end tables half this size with no outlets often cost way more than this does. I'm already thinking about getting another one.

TBH, the reviewer photos speak for themselves.
Promising review: "Our delightful kitty, Skittles, will not be contained by ordinary window screens. She's shredded four of them that blocked her favorite escape routes. In about a minute, she can make a cat-sized hole and she's outta here. It's been a nightmare here in South Florida. We can't open our windows on hot nights because every flying and crawling critter comes right in through the giant holes in the screens. In desperation, I bought this to see if it would help. I installed the Pet D-Fence screening about a month ago. Little Skittles has made a couple of runs at it, but so far, it's completely unscathed. I have a good feeling about this. The Pet D-Fence screening is slightly more opaque than regular screening, but that means nothing to me because regular screening won't survive one night. So far, I'm very happy!" —verygooddog

These come with an adhesive back so you can simply peel them off the sheet and stick them on your cabinets.
Promising reviews: "Work just as promised. My husband always slams the cabinet doors. It’s been really bothering me and prompted me to find a solution without reinstalling new hinges. These little pads have reduced the noise by 95%. Love it! Worth every penny. Took me a whole 10 minutes to do my entire kitchen and we have a lot of cabinets. Thank you!" —MeL
"Didn't know I needed the silence until I installed these things that my husband purchased. Our kitchen is so quiet now, absolutely amazing and simple fix." —Chris

I'm an inexperienced cook, and I've been wanting to improve at cooking and baking, but have honestly found it pretty intimidating. There are so many different pieces of cookware, all used for different things; I didn't even know where to start. The Always Pan is a godsend for folks like me. It can literally go in an oven, so I made banana bread for the first time in it (pictured on the right). It's deep enough to boil pasta, *and* shallow enough to serve as a sauce pan. I'm so excited to steam dumplings in it and use it to make brownies. Plus, the non-stick feature makes cleaning up so easy and quick. This is an amazing, versatile piece and it's absolutely worth the money for me — and it'll probably put the rest of your pots and pans fully out of business.

Promising review: "Whoever made this needs a raise. I wish I could slather my whole face with it. I've had acne for like 10 years (no joke) and recently had a terrible hormonal breakout and this really helped. I know when products work and when it does and this works. PLEASE for the love of gawd try it." —Sarah L.

Promising review: "Had a large amount of brown sugar and couldn't keep it soft, even in a tight container. I purchased new 5-quart jars for my flour, sugar, and so forth, and quickly realized my brown sugar was a ROCK! I purchased this, soaked it, and placed it in the sugar as instructed. Within hours it was soft again! I have about 2 pounds of sugar in the 5-quart jar currently. The jar is sealed with a gasket but I haven't had to re-soak the bear yet (only a month in use currently). Would recommend to anyone at this point, just mad I have wasted so much brown sugar over the years. I have not used it for any of the other uses, like cookies or bread, but will probably purchase more in the future since this little bear is dedicated to my brown sugar." —diosa

The charcoal bag has no smell and absorbs excess moisture to prevent mold, mildew, and bacteria from forming on your clothes and in your bag. You can use them for up to two years, but you should put them outside in the sun for an hour once a month so they can ~rejuvenate~.
Promising review: "I was skeptical this would work but boy howdy this is amazing! I never took my shoes off at people's houses because my feet sweat and stink. These took the odor out of not only newish shoes, but ones I've been wearing for years! It's amazing and I'm buying more." —Ashley Patrick

It comes with a remote you can use to control it as it works.
Promising review: "He is my natural-born son and I would cry hot tears of sorrow if anything were to ever happen to him. Ok, so histrionics aside, I really really love this guy. This has been one of the best purchases I have made this year (if not ever) and I truly do think of it as an investment in myself and my mental health. I am lazy and hate vacuuming. But this guy? This little guy will just lightly whizz around the house over and over again, sometimes lightly bumping into things, sometimes jetting off into another room...just slowly but surely gathering up all the random dust, hair and other detritus that you don't even know about and might not be able to get to with a traditional vacuum. My life is so much more at ease knowing I can clean without lifting so much as a finger." —Jules
Get it from Amazon for $199.99+ (available in two colors).
It's also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant devices for voice control.
Promising review: "I was a little price-leery on this but I've just been struggling to mop as much as I need to. I have three cats and I already have a regular vacuum robot that is amazing, but the idea of a mopping robot seemed different, like it wouldn't be helpful. Then after falling behind on cleaning we finally decided to splurge and buy one and omg — it's amazing. I should have given in a long time ago. My floors are so much cleaner because of this little mop robot." —Christina H.
Get it from Amazon for $399.00.
Promising review: "I am sure that I have washed, washed and washed again dishes that were already clean (along with dirty dishes of course). The dishwasher is not always emptied immediately after running a cycle and because of that, my family has VERY often mixed dirty with clean, and vice versa. We needed to find a way to 'remember' and this was a great solution. So glad to have this sticking on my dishwasher." —T. W. Barton

This product is designed for use in outdoor or garage trash bins and dumpsters. Do not use in areas where people or pets will be for an extended period of time.
Promising review: "It’s what everyone says; perfect. I live on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi — hot, humid, and plenty of moisture in the air. My garage, where my trash cans are kept, opens to a large wooded area. Lots of flies. Regardless of washing them out weekly, using bags with ties, or making sure to rinse meat packages and such, my trash cans were fly heaven and laden with maggots around trash time. Well, I stuck these where everyone said to, underneath the lid. In less than TWO days there were no flies or maggots. NONE!! Now, you might open the lid and have one flying around, but he won’t last long. Seriously, this stuff works better than described." —ztennyson

You'll save money from not buying tons of different notebooks, and it'll help the environment by using a sustainable tech option instead of paper. Each notebook comes with a microfiber cloth and one black Pilot FriXion erasable pen — though these colored erasable pens also come highly recommended.
Promising review: "I love this notebook. It was gifted to me and I immediately bought it as a gift for two other people. It is so easy to use and has every feature you need! If you're like me and prefer to handwrite your notes and want an easy way to transfer them to a digital form, this is for you. I use this for work and school. Great to use for online math homework. It has the capability to text search your handwritten notes so everything I save is easy to find. You can send PDFs to almost anything — email, Dropbox, Google Drive, text, iCloud, etc. (The app is free and very intuitive). Plus, this means I don't have to buy new notebooks anymore because I can reuse every page in my Rocketbook (of which there are more than enough to take notes through a whole class or meeting without running out of space). So, not only do I save money, I also save a TON of paper." —Madison MacLeod

Promising review: "I read on the news about an air fryer bursting into flames while it was off. The house almost burned down but the daughter saw it and alerted them. Still there was some damage to their kitchen. Although this is probably really unlikely, I thought we needed something to prevent this so I found this device. Basically all my kitchen appliances are hooked up to this device. When I want to use it, I just hit the 1 hour button, etc. I also purchased a voltage detector to make 100% sure this device was working and it is. When this thing is off, there is no electricity running through it at all, it is dead completely. So I feel pretty confident it can be used to make sure those appliances are not getting any power.
"It's surprisingly compact, which is great. You can still fit something else on the other socket for an outlet. It isn't bulky and the button press very nicely with a nice clicking sound and feel. I'm so glad this sort of thing exists. Prior to this I had to unplug everything, and that is dangerous in its own right as you have the power cable exposed to possible water splashing. Overall excellent product for my use, couldn't have asked for anything better." —CMA

Promising review: "Okay, so I know there’s a ton of reviews for how amazing this thing is, and I really thought it was going to be super overhyped. But seriously — THIS THING IS AMAZING! Usually, I have to really scrub to get my mascara off, and I’ll typically lose an eyelash or two in the process, but I wet this down and wiped my face once, and everything was off my face and on the towel. And I mean wipe, there was no scrubbing. I literally did a quick wipe expecting it to be just an initial pass, then looked up into the mirror and was like, holy hell, I think it’s all off. I’m in total shock. I have literally never once had a cream, oil, cloth, or otherwise that so effortlessly wiped off my mascara before. There’s got to be some magic going on here...my face thanks you." —anonymous

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Jenae Sitzes owns this and loves it: "When my mom first told me about this $500 automatic litter box she'd read about somewhere, my eyes just about popped out of my head thinking about spending that much on a thing that my cats poop in. But after thinking about it some more, I realized it's actually a pretty reasonable investment since I plan on owning cats forever but shamefully hate cleaning out their litter boxes as often as they really should be.
"I've been using the Litter Robot myself for over a year now, and I'm pretty sure both me and my two cats are way happier for it. After a cat is done using it, the Litter Robot waits a set amount of time until the cat's presence is no longer detected, then begins to rotate, collecting the waste into a bag at the bottom while retaining the clean litter in the barrel. I usually don't detect a smell from it afterward, though once the bag starts to get really full, you might get a subtle reminder that you need to take it out. I only have to take out that bag about once a week, and a flashing light will let you know when it's full.
"Initially, the cats were a little spooked by the sound of the Litter Robot during a cycle, and for the first few weeks, they would just sit and stare at it, as if it would get up and run at them if they took their eyes off it. At this point, though, they've completely adjusted and accepted it as their way of life, making my life a heck of a lot easier while ensuring they always have a clean bed of litter. It's a pricey purchase, to be sure, but if cleaning out the litter box daily or even every other day is hard for you and you'd rather not think about it much at all, I say the Litter Robot is worth it. One thing to note: It's quite large, so make sure you have a dedicated space for it."

Looking for a cheaper option? Here's another self-cleaning cat litter box from Amazon that reviewers like — it's smaller and utilizes disposable trays instead.
Promising reviews: "This is like sending your friend a hug every time they use it. I bought this to replace wifey's favorite mug that broke. It's just right. It feels so good when you hold it. The colors are warm and shade beautifully into each other, giving a pleasing subtle grading effect. Washing it is a bit weird, as the cup is also shaped differently inside, but it's easy to wash up since there are no hidden areas. This is her new favorite mug, hit it out of the park with its beautiful design. Bit pricey, but y'know, when it's perfect you accept that." —kevin
"This coffee cup is amazing. This was a 'took a chance' gift for my coffee obsessed partner (who has 25 cups). She LOVES it. More then any of her other coffee cups. This is the only one she uses!!

Promising review: "I can't stop recommending this pillow to all of my friends! It has let me comfortably sleep on flights that take place on the most uncomfortable airplane seats. On long flights, I always need to prop up my hand and I rest my head on it. But this method always ends with my arm falling asleep and I end up waking up every 30 minutes. Now this pillow provides that exact same support without needing my arms to prop me up! It's small enough to fit in your bag and doesn't take up much space." —Simona Krifman

It fits about two towels (or even a towel and a robe or other fabric items) and has a 15-minute adjustable timer.
Promising review: "I bought one for myself, then bought several others as presents because it's so nice. It's fairly small and easy to find space for even in a small bathroom but is also big enough to hold two large towels at a time. There are a few small things to watch for: occasionally the on button takes a bit of finagling to work; it takes about eight minutes to hit 'maximum' towel warmth; if the lid is askew/not fully on the towel loses a lot of heat; there's a bit of a plastic odor that goes away after the first few uses. But if you're aware of those things, it's super luxurious and worth every penny, having a super-warm towel waiting for you counters. It also makes a great present, it's the kind of luxury item people don't normally think to get for themselves but makes life so much better. Anybody who says you can't buy happiness obviously hasn't bought a towel warmer." —Heather

There are other color-correcting glasses available for folks with moderate and strong red-green colorblindness, as well as different forms of colorblindness like blue-yellow. The product page has graphics to help with lens selection!
I literally have over half a dozen people in my family who are colorblind, and I'll never forget when one of them tried these color-correcting glasses. He was so emotional and couldn't believe there were so many colors he'd never seen before. It was such a touching and impactful experience, and has stuck with me for a long time. If you (or a loved one) are colorblind, then this is truly an worthwhile investment. It's no exaggeration to say it could even be life-changing.
Promising reviews: "I got these as a gift for my girlfriend and for the first time in her life she got to see red and green and all the shades in between. She has severe deuteranopia and these glasses work!! She was speechless and began to cry when she first put them on. She said she had no idea the world was so colorful and now she doesn't want to take the glasses off. This is the best gift I ever gave anyone. I don't do reviews often but these glasses are awesome. Our only issue with them is they are a little big for her face and they are not the most stylish. Thank you Pilestone!!" —Matt S.
"These had the best reviews competitively for price/value/quality. My dad has been colorblind his entire life. We got these for him for Father's Day and he LOVES them. He has been having the best time wearing them everywhere! These are definitely most effective outside in his opinion, but do work for certain things he's looking at inside. He is VERY excited to take a trip up to the Northeast this fall and see real 'fall colors' that 'everyone has always been talking about' (his words lol). Definitely a great purchase and I highly recommend." —Katie

The bowl is a great size, and displays ~30 pairs of earrings really nicely. The height is about the length of a finger, so it's just tall enough for almost any pair of dangle earrings. I just keep my larger earrings and studs in the bowl. :) It's beautifully made and is even better in person than in the pictures. It was also very securely packaged. Highly recommend!" —hippiellama

Promising review: "This compost bin is the perfect accent piece to our newly remodeled kitchen. I love the matte finish, and the terracotta color goes well with my pale green and grey cabinets. It works well too. The filters and design of the top keep the odors trapped inside, and it holds plenty of food waste. So happy with my purchase!" —Alisa L
