Finds worth the money, because they'll make everyday life a little easier.

BuzzFeed Staff

A Cat Amazing, aka a box with holes in the side and a system of barriers with holes on the inside that your kitteh will be incredibly interested in hunting through to find the tasty treats you've hidden inside!

A bottle-emptying kit because it will let you get every penny's worth of product out of your favorite shampoos, lotions, and even food products like honey or that gourmet salad dressing you can't get enough of.

Some Neuro Gum or Neuro Mints, which contain 40 mg of green tea caffeine — about half a cup of coffee's worth, meaning it'll help give you the smooth boost you need through the afternoon without leaving you tossing and turning when it's time for bed.

Reviewers talk about just keeping the 12-inch in their microwave all the time, so they can easily lift it up to take any hot dishes out — which is convenient and makes sense! (Although another reviewer mentions that you shouldn't leave it there while you make microwave popcorn).

Promising review: "Okay, so I am a sucker for innovations that I see on Shark Tank so bought this without giving it much thought. When it arrived I thought I had probably made a mistake, but turns out I use them all the time. I keep one in the microwave, which makes clean up easier but also allows me to use it as a potholder. I keep the other in a drawer and use it as a trivet to protect my counters and table. Stores easily, has lots of uses, cleans in a flash. Pretty cool." —Kathy, Avid Reader

Get a pack of two (one 10-inch and one 12-inch) on Amazon for $31.95 (available in 12 colors).

See how in the picture on the left, there's a little column in the middle of the open box with a hole through it? Once you put your items in the box and top it with the donut-shaped lid, you slide a round metal carabiner through that hole, which prevents the box from opening even a little bit until you take the carabiner off again. Genius!

Reviewers use this when they take their jewelry off at the gym, at the beach, to do dishes, to get their nails done, to play with kids, to do some particularly messy or rough work, or just because their jewelry gets uncomfortable through the day.

Promising review: "I love this product. I first bought one for myself to try and have since purchased one for everyone I know. This has been a great inexpensive gift for all of my teacher colleagues and friends who are on the go. I am very rough with my keys and often drop them or throw them in my bag and desk drawer and it hasn't shown any signs of breaking or coming apart. My original intention for my latch was to keep on my keys so I'd always have a place to put my earrings and rings when they start to bother me. Since I've become pregnant I currently use it to store extra prenatal vitamins for the mornings I rush and forget to take them. I appreciate the compact size and the surprisingly large amount of small items it can hold." —Melany Crenshaw

Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in six colors).

Promising review: "Very practical ring. I can wear this ring without it getting in the way or even really noticing it. I wear it in the shower, doing dishes, whatever. I got the white one and so far (approx. one-month use) no discoloration, which I was worried about. I have an allergy to metal so this was a very good non-traditional solution for my wedding ring. (I still have my nice diamond ring to wear out when I dress up). I am usually a 4.75 or 5 ring size; I bought a size 4 and it did stretch slightly as other reviewers mentioned so now it fits like a glove. I was worried that it would feel too tight at first and it would freak me out if I couldn't get it off or it would cut off circulation. None of this happened. It was totally comfortable from day one. Very happy! Definitely recommend!" —WWoman6814

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes 4–9 and seven colors).

Promising review: "This is a great fidget gadget for anyone who needs to play with something to help focus, and not cause a lot of distraction for others while doing so! I bought it for my husband, who CANNOT be still for more than .04 seconds at a time, and will fidget with absolutely anything within reach. A lot of his makeshift "toys" were driving me up the wall with annoyance listening to the clicks, buzzes, whirring, etc...then I found this!!! It's nearly silent and satisfies his need to play with something. My sanity has been saved!" —Nikkisue

Get it on Amazon for $15 (available in four colors).

Bonus: they're totally dishwasher safe. (I have a couple myself and have used 'em for a couple of years. I run them through the top rack all the time!)

Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices." —Megan A.

Get a sandwich-size bag on Amazon for $11.04+ (available in six colors; also available in more sizes and colors on the Stasher Amazon store page).

Promising review: "I can't tell you how many reading glasses I've killed in the past few years, largely from jettisoning them from my breast pocket or hooking them awkwardly in my shirt collar. These clips are amazing. They're discreet enough that I don't look like a goon wearing one on my shirt all day, and when I hang my glasses from them I can tie my shoes without spilling them lens-first on the ground. What else can a fellow ask for?" —Phil Selman

Get a set of two on Amazon for $20.99 (available in four color sets).

Because be it artisanal mustard or a drugstore foundation, you paid good money for every ounce of that product! And yes, they actually work, like, really well — here's our Spatty review.

Promising review: "So worth it! I'm so happy with it. You will definitely save money using this. I think about how much I could have saved if this was invented 30 years ago. I mostly use it for small makeup jars. I tested out the longer one on a 18oz lotion and it worked fine. Some reviews complain about not being able to get every curve and corner of their container. ..oh please.! You get so much more than you would without it." —Liz

Get the set of two — one with a 6-inch handle, and another with a 12-inch handle (for different tasks!) — on Amazon for $9.99 (also available in green, pink, or grey on the Spatty Amazon store page).

All you do is fill your container with warm water, drop in a tablet (or two, if you're cleaning something bigger than a water bottle), wait half an hour, and rinse. Also, based on the reviews it seems to work best on metal or ceramic, and not so well on plastic.

Promising review: "Be sure to use hot water; it seems to do a lot better job. The first time I used these on a Contigo travel mug I used room-temp water, and it just came out okay. For the next travel mug I used boiling water and the results were terrific. It looks new again. Then I used two cubes (and boiling water) in a large old pressure cooker that had become brown inside from years of making vegetable soups, and I'm amazed how clean it came out. That pressure cooker stain persisted throughout dozens of scrubbing sessions and dishwasher runs, so I figured the Bottle Bright wouldn't help either but it did." —MisterPlow

Get a pack of 12 tablets on Amazon for $8.

Promising review: "I am always looking for new solutions to help my chronic pain, and I had a feeling when I saw the Q-Flex on Shark Tank that I needed one ASAP. I used to do acupressure with a massage therapist but had to stop for financial reasons, and this is a great way to get the same relief for a fraction of the price. This has been so helpful for relieving the tightness in my neck, back, and shoulders and I’m so glad I bought it. Honestly this has been the BEST. PURCHASE. EVER. I even got one for my dad for Christmas since he has shoulder issues also. I seriously wish I had just bought it the day I saw it!" —Amelia

Get it on Amazon for $34.99.

They're especially great if you're a cyclist, apparently, for easy bike cleaning. You can get them in a box of individually-packed wipes, too, which make 'em easy to stick in your pocket or pack when you go on a ride. But they're useful for all sorts of other tasks, too!

Promising review: "I recently switched to cycling for my work commute, which means bike maintenance. Regardless of how easy its been, it always results in at least some grease and dirt on my hands and I almost never could get completely clean. I just used these wipes about an hour ago after replacing a flat tire, and that one instance has compelled me to post this review. I used a single wipe and was able to completely clean up my hands and arms in less than five minutes. You couldn't even tell that I had been fiddling with my bike; no grease or grime remained. I highly recommend these! I will be carrying two of these individually packaged wipes in my bag with me whenever I'm on the bike considering how useful these would be if I had to do some roadside maintenance and had no way to clean up. Get these if you do any sort of work with your hands during which they may get some grease or grime on them." —V P

Get a canister of 25 wipes from Amazon for $11.99 (also available, but more expensive per wipe: a box of 24 individually-wrapped wipes for $16.72).

Because it fits over your car's seat belt holster, it moves along with your seat as you adjust it — which means you can stuff it in and forget about it, at least until it saves some popcorn from disappearing into the abyss.

Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this." —Tessa Forbes

Get a pack of two on Amazon for $24.99.

You guessed it: it's the Scrub Daddy!

Promising review: "I cannot speak highly enough of this amazing scrubber! It cleans absolutely everything, doesn't scratch nonstick surfaces, has a fun texture, doesn't smell bad over time, and actually speeds up my dish cleaning time. Seriously, this is the best scrubber I have encountered in years. I bought one for several friends and family members for Christmas after seeing it on Shark Tank, and I've already replaced one for myself. This makes a wonderful and practical gift.

My son liked it so much he just purchased two more packages to clean their new stainless steel sink. This product is a great value compared to every other scrubber I have tried, and I have A LOT of them. Finally, it looks great sitting on the counter or in the sink with its smiley face and fun colors. Great value: you can't go wrong with this one!" —Carla

Get a pack of three on Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I have this and the finish nail size and they are both great! I have nerve pain in my hands and The Safety Nailer removes any chance of me banging my fingers with a hammer. What a relief!! It’s great for those of us who are not as dexterous as we once were. One of the best construction gadgets I’ve ever purchased." —w4shep

Get them from Amazon: the regular size for $9.99, the mini size for $9.99, or a combo pack with both for $17.99.

You still have to be gentle, of course, and not push too hard or you will go too far. But the bear head makes a great little guide!

Promising review: "This thing is amazing, it works very well for us. Good length and it's soft/firm. I was able to gently scoop my four-month-old's ear wax and pick out her sticky crusty boogers. She enjoys being clean so she sat/laid down very still for us. I would definitely buy this for a baby shower gift and definitely recommend to anyone. " —P.T.

Get it on Amazon for $11.31.

Promising review: "Depending on how hot and greasy the food I'm cooking happens to be, there is still some splatter but very minor compared to either cooking without a cover, or having the pan covered and not wanting to take the cover off and expose my stove to the excess splatter on the cover and while uncovered. Face it, it's not perfect; the product would have to be over two feet tall to stop all the splatter, then you couldn't get utensils down to the food! But as long as you don't over-oil the pan, and don't heat it too hot, this product will make your life a lot easier and be one of the best $21 purchases a cook could make — far better than a grease screen. Cleanup is easy: just use a soapy sponge to wipe it down, or put it in the dishwasher." —Gordy J

Get the medium size for 10-inch pans on Amazon for $21.95 or the large size for 12-inch pans for $28.95 (each size available in five colors).

It does look a little goofy, but you and your well-rested self will have the last laugh!

Promising review: "Comfortable neck pillow. Great for air travel, the hoodie is very easy to adjust over your face, it helps me block out the unwanted light and overall sights on the plane! I also use when riding as a passenger in a car to get a quick nap in. The memory foam is quite comfortable." —TK

Get it on Amazon for $39.95 (available in five colors).

Several BuzzFeeders own and love these — read one person's review.

Promising reviews: "Per my husband: 'First time I used mine I was like, 'there's no way the last 3 inches of that poop would have come out without the Squatty Potty.'" —m2

"Unbelievable that I've been performing a basic bodily function incorrectly my entire life. This is a wonderful product that is well worth the money. It allows one to adopt a natural, healthy position without giving up a western style toilet. You just have to use it to truly appreciate it." —Amazon Customer

Get it the 7-inch high stool (for new squatters) for $19.99 or the 9-inch-high stool (for ~advanced~ squatters) for $29.99 on Amazon — or see all the color and size options available on Amazon on their store page.

Promising review: "This product is a lifesaver for me in helping to keep my glasses on. I work outside on trailers all day and before using this my glasses would fall off consistently when I had to spend any amount of time looking down. Putting this on in the morning and then at lunch helps to keep my glasses on my face. Only downfall is that with having plastic frames the nose pad area has to be really clean of oil and debris of the wax will not stick well." —dragon4785

Get a tube on Amazon for $9.99 (also available as a value pack of four tubes for $25.99).

Pregnant reviewers love these too, so their regular shoes can easily slip on!

Promising review: "I've used other brands of stretch laces over the years for triathlon, everyday running shoes, kids' shoes, etc. Their design included intrusive plastic components. The Original Stretchlace look like ordinary shoelaces, but turn shoes into perfectly laced slip-ons. I'm particular about the fit of my running shoes (fussy feet) so the ability to lace them up just the way I like ONCE then forget about them is so convenient! The fit is secure after several 10+ mile runs. Ordering more for my family's athletic and casual shoes." —MIslander

Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 14 colors, 9 lengths, and in round laces here).

It adjusts up to 38 inches, so it works with most bags. My mom has one of these she's used several times and loves it!

Cincha Travel is a Black-owned, California-based small business that makes these cool belts — and they donate 100 airline miles for every purchase to reconnect migrant families.

Promising review: "This is such a useful little item!! Stylish, too! I gave them to my whole family for Christmas and they are a huge hit. I will never travel without it again!" —Joanne

Get it from Cincha Travel for $40 (available in 20 colors and designs).

Promising review: "Whole grain never tasted so good! I’ve been a fan of Kodiak Cakes for years and usually opt for the chocolate pancakes but this time, I got the buttermilk. There is no way you’d be able to tell these are so good for you because they taste that amazing. Better than pancakes made with enriched flour. I use Almond milk and egg for mixing and it’s heaven in a box. I can't say enough about this amazing product." —I.R.

Get six boxes of the buttermilk flapjack mix on Amazon for $34.29 (also available in eight other flavors).

Promising review: "I was looking for a safe natural product that didn't have any ingredients requiring a hazardous waste disposal label. A lot of so-called 'natural' cleaners have ingredients that need an EPA use-and-disposal label. This doesn't. It is strong enough to really go through grease and grime like a clear organic tornado. I haven't found anything that can't be cleaned with it yet. Plus it's odor free. I feel comfortable spraying it in places where pets, children or myself in bare feet might absorb it by stepping in the residue. It's hard to get excited over cleaning spray but this deserves a level of excitement in my home." —Mark O.

Get the two bottles on Amazon for $12.99+ (available in unscented or two scents).

Don't get me wrong, these won't replace *every* use for a paper towel. And yeah, you could just upcycle some old cotton tees into cleaning rags to serve a similar purpose. But if thinking about tackling that DIY project makes you sigh or shudder, Bambooee are here for ya. Note that some people have issues with mold: to make sure yours don't mold, never put them in a box or bag when they're wet! They're machine washable up to 100 times, but need to be air dried.

Promising review: "Used several sheets. They do make awesome dishtowels. Been using one for over a week and it still works great. I like the idea that you can toss and just start a new one. I have scrubbed off stove top, oven wipe down, spills on the floor...and it just washes up clean and fresh. You get A LOT of use per towel!! I would suggest putting a receptacle (other than trash) near the roll, so if a kid uses one, they know NOT to toss it in the trash like a normal paper towel. They do machine wash and dry just fine! Otherwise, they fit your paper towel roll perfectly. Then you can fold the washed ones and keep with your kitchen towels/wash rags." —HG Timmons

Get a roll of 30 towels on Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "The cards are ingenious, gorgeous, and of a quality rarely matched in the consumer world. On top of that, the people tending this enterprise are delightful, warm, and make you feel like they care about you as someone far more important than just a person with money to spend. They treat you like someone in search of a thoughtful way to embrace a loved one and are pleased and eager to help. With so much clutter and animus loose in our culture, it was a great treasure to find this small gem of affection." —VerbRiver

Get the Hummingbird card for $13 (also available in 12 other bird/butterfly/floral designs), the Tinkerbell card for $15 (also available in 18 other Disney designs), and browse Lovepop's full card selection all on Amazon.

A number of reviewers talk about how they bring this on vacation because they don't like hotel coffee!

Promising review: "If you love coffee and are not a fan of artificial flavors, you will love this coffee. I first had this on vacation and I was hooked. The vanilla offers a very subtle sweetness that tastes like a hint of real vanilla — not the artificial tasting vanilla that you find with cheaper coffees. This is a little on the pricey side, so I have been savoring my last box and enjoying only on special days. Copper Cow Pour Over is a coffee experience, and I highly recommend it. Great gift idea, too." —Lightfoot2014

Get a pack of eight pouches from Amazon for $24 (about $3/cup; available in regular or vanilla flavors).

Promising review: "If you have a reverse osmosis system this is essential for coffee. I love RO water for just drinking, however for coffee, mixing this in gives a very robust, aromatic coffee. The first cups I made with RO water tasted very bland/flat, nearly like nothing at all. This with dark roast tastes better than most cups I get at places that make you pay $4 for a cup." —J. Press

Get a box of 12 capsules (which makes 12 gallons of water) on Amazon for $15.30+ (available in light roast and espresso).

It also perfectly fits an unopened package of Ramen and protects it in your bag as you travel to work!

Promising review: "This product is simply magnificent! Ordered after seeing it on Shark Tank and so glad I did! First put your noodles in the basket with the sauce. Place the water to the fill line and microwave for five minutes. Then ramen noodles galore begins!!! Perfect every time! Had these two units for over five years and still works great! Looks excellent too! I would HIGHLY recommend this Rapid Ramen Cooker too everyone!" —TopSella

Get it on Amazon for $10.99.

Promising review: "This item is super easy to use and cuts well every time. I've used it five times already and it works perfectly. It's such a great time saver and I've even come back to buy more for other friends as a cute little gift. This little helper makes me actually enjoy wrapping presents!! Everyone should have one of these Little Elves!" —Cathy Bitner

Get a pack of two on Amazon for $13.99.

They're made by an Asian-owned small business that has made DIY amigurumi — that's what these handmade yarn creatures are called — super simple and accessible.

The kit includes everything you need to have success, and you can always get extra email support too: yarn, stuffing, plastic eyes, an already-started piece of crochet material, a stitch marker, a needle, a PDF pattern download, a carrying bag, and an optional crochet hook

My colleague Katy Herman loves these kits; here's what she says about them:

"After writing about this awesome biz many times, I was finally influenced to try them for myself — which is a huge vote of confidence for anyone who knows me, considering I am very lazy, not particularly artistically inclined, and my "hobbies" primarily rhyme with Schmetflix. However, I have now made four Woobles and purchased several more! The videos are suuuuper detailed so like they promise, anyone can learn to crochet with them. Once you get the hang of it, it's so soothing and hard to stop, and it becomes — get this — a great thing to do with your hands while watching said Schmetflix! And of course, the finished products are so, so cute and great to keep for yourself or give as gifts. I made the rainbow version of this dino for my boyfriend and it honestly might be the cutest one I've ever made. The spikes and arms were really fun to do, too!"

Promising review: "Fred was the first thing I ever crocheted. I decided to give Woobles a try after my daughter made several Woobles animals. It was very easy to get started and the videos were very easy to follow. I’m so happy with Fred and plan on making him a tiny birthday hat and gifting him to my 3-year-old for his birthday." —Tiffany Z.

Get it from The Woobles for $25+ (available with or without a crochet hook). Find more animals here.

Promising review: "I sweat through shirts on the 15-minute drive to work. Within minutes a perfectly dry shirt turns into a swampy oasis. A very unpleasant situation indeed. If this sounds like you, you MUST get this undershirt. Either keep holding your arms tightly against your body during important meetings and awkwardly moving around without lifting your arms up to hide the giant 8–10" diameter soak spots you now have growing on your sides... Or have a perfectly dry shirt all day long without having to uncomfortably hide your sweaty pits from everyone. Might sound like an overstatement, but it's literally changed my professional life and made me far more confident during my day to day activities. Totally worth the 30 bucks." —B. Ramlow

Get one on Amazon for $38.99 (available in men's sizes XS–3XL and four colors; for women's sizes and more styles, see their Amazon store page).

And it's more reusable than foil! It also comes with five little slice-shaped plates, which you can stack in the container when you put your 'za away. Then when it's time to eat those leftovers, put the whole container in the microwave to reheat it all at once!

Promising review: "I've been using the same pizza slice storage boxes for years. They took up a lot of room in kitchen cabinet and didn't always stay tightly closed. I saw this product on Shark Tank and *really* wanted to try it! I prefer to reheat pizza in a toaster oven instead of a microwave, so I will never use the plates as anything but separators. With that said, I like this a lot, it takes up less room (whether in the refrigerator or in cabinet) and works nicely." —S. D. Bower

Get it on Amazon for $25 (available in six colors).

Promising reviews: "After using this garlic powder I am ruined for anything else. It has far less of the pungent flavor that we try to avoid with garlic and more of the not exactly sweet but the glorious nutty taste that roasted garlic brings out. I am a customer for life." —Thesillybanana

"Incredible. So THIS is what cinnamon is supposed to taste like! Wow. I can’t get enough of this stuff. Amazing on everything — lovely depth of flavor with zero bitterness. I had no idea cinnamon could be this good. I sprinkle it on fresh apples and use it in my homemade granola. I need to find more cinnamon recipes! Soooo good!!!" —au-printemps

Get them from Amazon: the garlic or cinnamon for $9.99 each, or a gift pack of six spices for $54.99.

The kit comes with six adapters (to make them fit a variety of bottle neck sizes) and six of the purple dispensing stands.

Promising review: "This is such a great tool for using up every last bit of product and reducing waste. We used this on a bottle of lotion that we thought was empty but got nearly six more months out of it when we put this on, we were shocked. I use this for my shampoo and anything else that I can think of." —Felishia Rae

Get the kit on Amazon for $25.

Kayla, a former editor here on the Shopping team, loves the gum — here's some of what she had to say in her Neuro Gum review! "It’s great to chew throughout the afternoon without having to worry about it keeping you up at night. It also ha L-theanine, which is the main amino acid in green tea, so you get a natural energy boost without all the sugars that you’d find in energy drinks. THIS MEANS NO JITTERS. NO CRASHING. Just a good’ ol boost of energy. Around 2 p.m., I pop a piece in (I looove the cinnamon flavor) and I have an instant energy boost."

Promising review (for the mints): "I am currently in law school so these mints are an awesome alternative to drinking copious amounts of coffee. They have a strong but delicious flavor and provide a little jolt of energy (nothing too crazy) that help me get through the day. I would highly recommend these mints to someone who, like me, needs a little bit of pep in their step but doesn't want to drink too much coffee." —Daniella Crivello

Get them on Amazon: six packs of the mints or six packs of the cinnamon gum for $23.99, or 12 packs of the mint gum for $42.99 (six packs of the mint gum are also $42 right now, so might as well get the 12 pack).

Promising review: "This thing is freaking awesome!!! So I am NOT a barber, but I have over the years almost perfected a fade on my husband. The only thing I couldn’t do perfectly was point his sideburns, he has a very specific way that he likes it and when I tried it just fell short. I saw this product on Shark Tank again (as an update) and decided to give it a whirl for only $8 what do I have to lose right? Well I used it for the first time and he got the best haircut to date. The sideburns look great, but also I used all the angles all over his head and it made it so seamless and easy to cut all along every edge. Pics are after first use, so I feel I will get better with using it with time (I also accidentally cut his top with a 3, not a 2 so his cut will look even better next time) but I highly suggest this to anyone who cuts men’s hair be it in the home or at the barber's. I should also mention that HE is super pleased with how it looks. I can’t speak for using it on a beard yet but we are both so pleased with this product, seriously, buy it! I" —Laurie Higgins

Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two styles).

Promising review: "My girlfriend bought this for me as a present. At first I was skeptical to use, but once I got my hands out it there was no going back. I use my Beard Bib anywhere two to four times a week and cannot live without it. Not only does this serve a big purpose in my trimming routine but now I no longer have to argue with my girlfriend about all the mess that I USED to create. Also, we ordered a beard oil recently and reached out to customer support about the different scents they offer, they were super helpful! Overall it has been an awesome experience and they’ve truly made me feel like a King!" —Timur

Get it from Amazon for $12.37+ (available in four styles).

Promising review: "I didn't even think about my shower drain being such a problem with hair. We have a relatively new shower and the drain was starting to be slow, but not really a problem because the pipe has a long drop. I was watching Shark Tank and thought maybe I need to check this out. Wow, there was a lot of hair to clean! Three long-haired girls in the house! I started using this and it pulled all sorts of hair out. We change it about once a month. Easy to pull out and no breaks or rust. I keep buying!" —Kindle Customer

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99.

This Black-owned brand has high-quality formulas even if you're a self-professed makeup snob.

Promising reviews: "Beautiful smooth finish that goes on like butter. Perfect amount of pigment, not terribly long-lasting, but easy to reapply. I like it better than lipsticks that cost double the amount." —Benitamt

"I tried BFF first and I really like it. It's a bit more pinkish purple than what you see in the photo. If you're not into pink lippies like myself, go with a light touch or apply a dark purple lipliner. I also have the shade Good Side, which is my everyday lip color. Overall they're moisturizing and have great coverage." —Raerae

Get the lipstick from Target for $13.99 (available in 12 shades), and check out the rest of The Lip Bar's products at Target.

Promising review: "Update 2021: it's still kicking. Yeah, $15 for a cardboard box... But one that your cats will use for YEARS. New kitten in the house agrees with the senior kitties, too. And yes, it's dented... But you know how many times a person stepped on this thing??

Original 2017 Review:I was skeptical.. however my pictures speak for themselves. My lazy, overweight, senior kitty is pictured with her paws in the box! Do they enjoy trying to solve the puzzle? I'm not sure, but either way it certainly keeps them occupied for a while." —Waffles

Get it on Amazon for $15.92 (also available in a bigger sliders version and a mega version).

Each pouch starts four fires!

Promising review: "This stuff is awesome!!! We used only one pack for our campfire and it kept burning for a long while — well after the logs caught. There was no oily, smelly chemicals or toxic smoke like some fire starters that are paraffin based. This burned clean so we had a nice relaxing fire to enjoy — no poking or prodding necessary to get the fire going." —Mooselady

Promising review: "I wish I had this back when I had cats. I have a 2.5 year old and this is a total game changer. Last Christmas every ornament she could reach wouldn't stay on the tree. This year not only have we kept every ornament in place but they were very easy to place. Easier than I expected. I think the placement looks better than traditional hooks. Plan on buying more for next year." —Uniquely Mateo

Promising review: "I work for the railroad and I am always getting my hands dirty! I could never seem to find anything that worked. Also, I live in Utah so when it starts getting cold my hands dry out. Well, with Grip Clean that doesn’t happen! I have my coworkers coming to my locker asking to get some soap since the soap we have at doesn't work as well as Grip Clean!" —Nick

Promising review: "Does your child 'feed the dog' during meal time? While this dish won't guarantee they won't continue that fun habit, it sure helps. Instead of 'wiping all the food' off his highchair tray, now my grandson's food sits in this sturdy dish that can't move. And I mean can't! It stays put and the cut pieces are easy to pick up it. Easy to clean too!" —Reeve

Promising reviews: "I've learned the hard way that not all microfiber hair towels are the same. I've tried many different types/brands and the only ones that seem to really live up to the hype is Turbie Twist. I have waist length curly hair that is very thick, and this is the only towel that works for me. It pulls a lot of water out of my hair, stays in place and doesn't pull on my hair at all. It's usually soaking wet when I remove it but I toss it over the shower rod and it's dry by the next morning. This is legit the only microfiber towel I will ever use!" —GeekMom
