An internet address and password log book if you’re like me and have ever had your entire life come crashing down because you couldn’t convince Gmail you weren’t an imposter.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book!” —Carole P

A weekly meal planning pad to make life in the kitchen more efficient. Seasoned chefs may be able to whip things up on the fly, but you know you need a little more preparation than that.

Amazon

It’ll stick to your fridge with the two flat magnets on the back!

Promising review: “I’ve been starting to get into meal prepping and this planner really helps! I like being able to look up recipes on my phone and then write down whatever ingredients I still need on the grocery list section of this planner. The fact that it’s magnetic is cool because you can hang it on the fridge. I love how the grocery list section can be ripped off so you can take it to the store, but the daily meal plans remain on the fridge so you can stay organized. This is a very simple idea, but it’s cute and helps keep me organized and motivated to plan out my meals.” —Samantha M.

A silverware sorter if you’ve realized responsible adults don’t just toss utensils into a single drawer and hope they organize themselves.

the silver sorter in a drawer filled with various utensils


Amazon

Promising review: “I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!” —Mialro

A 60-minute visual timer if actually *seeing* the minutes ticking away is something that’d help you step your productivity up a notch.

the visual timer with about 45 minutes marked in red


amazon.com

Peep what BuzzFeed writer Jen Tonti thinks of this cool clock below:

“I have ADHD and have used various tools throughout my education to keep me organized and on-task. This is one of the best. I personally set 30-minute increments for any given task since an hour becomes too much time and I get side-tracked. It’s not that I must finish my task in 30 minutes, but rather I am kept aware of time passing in the first place and that helps me stay focused. The red film that disappears is a necessary visual representation of time that really makes this clock better than just a timer on my phone. I keep it within view and whenever I feel my mind trailing off I can quickly glance up and say, ‘Oh wow that was 10 minutes of distraction, better get back into it.’ “

A hanger stacker, because sometimes we need an extra organization tool to help us organize the things that are supposed to keep us organized in the first place — it’s organization inception!


amazon.com

Promising review: “The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time. I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a pain so to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double-boxed and nicely packaged within. Assembly was simple with a total of four screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base and the wrench included. No personal tools were needed. The hanger stand doesn’t wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully, it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle! I’m buying another for child-size hangers.” —Kara Adams

A bag-organizing insert for anyone whose purse is basically a bottomless abyss of jumbled items.

Promising review: “This bag has revolutionized my life! As a professional woman who needs to stay organized, my purse was my downfall. All of my adult life, I have fumbled to find things on the bottom of my handbag no matter what the size. I have even tried carrying a flashlight to find things but I could never find the flashlight. Do I have a pen? It’s got to be here somewhere. Paper? Yes, I think I have paper. Well, it’s crumpled, but it’s paper. Safety pins? Maybe, but it will take an hour to sort through everything else to find them. Maybe if I dump everything out on the counter, it won’t take so long… NOW, I am the picture of efficiency. Wallet, pens, paper, cords, phone, keys, gum, safety pins, comb, ID badge, mouthwash, lipstick, cold capsules, and more are all tucked nicely into this travel bag which easily slips in and out of any purse I choose to carry. I purchased the small and medium-size and they fit perfectly inside my purses. The organizer holds a ton of stuff and everything is standing up in full view.

I used to have a bunch of different bags in my trunk and it was very messy. With Lotus Bags, I can finally get rid of all the other bags and have these sitting nice and pretty in the trunk. The cooler bag is especially awesome to keep the items cool while shopping to transporting them home. The bags look very well made and sturdy.” —JJ

A Book Lover’s Journal for you to jot down the names of the books you’ve read, reread, or — if you’re a TRUE bibliophile — books you’ve purchased on an impulse to add to your ever growing collection but have yet to read a single page or paragraph from.


amazon.com

The journal has an elastic band closure, a sturdy hardcover binding, and 261 pages.

Promising review: “I do a lot of reading and it becomes cumbersome sometimes to keep the books straight. This helps me with that. When I’m talking with someone about a book I really liked, but I can’t quite bring up the title, I can consult my notes and find out what I need to know. There are separate sections in this journal. It has a two-page spread for each book you read where you can put pertinent details including the author, number of pages, publisher, where you got the book on one side, and your notes and ‘review’ on the other side. A table of contents can show the books listed in that section so you don’t buy them again, something I have done more times than I care to mention. Another section is just to list the various books you’ve heard about and want to get later. You can mark them out as you get them. The journal is small enough that you can easily put it in your purse to carry with you. I really like this little book for organizing my reading life!” —Linda Keenan

Vacuum-sealed bags that’ll become an essential part of your spring cleaning routine. These things are also great for people who move a lot.


amazon.com

Here’s what BuzzFeed writer Jasmin Suknanan has to say about how the bags have helped her organize:

“Sooo, my closet is a mess. I admit it. And since I promised myself I’d do better, I decided to get these storage bags to see if they’ll really give me a neat place to keep off-season clothes without taking up too much space in my room. I folded my clothes and stuffed them in the bag, careful not to fill the bag past the ‘STOP’ line since the instructions say you could risk re-inflating the bag if you do. I zipped up the bag and used the included vacuum pump to pump out the air, although you can also use a normal vacuum to do this. It took a few minutes, but I watched the bag deflate before my eyes. The flatter the bag becomes, the harder it should be to pump the air out. I stopped once it became really difficult to pull the handle on the pump and marveled at my work. I was pretty dang impressed, TBH. I didn’t have any issues with the bag re-inflating and it’s been two months so far. Yay for a cleaner closet!!!”

A reusable notebook that comes with a cloud-compatible app. This thing is a game-changer if you’re someone with far too many half-filled notebooks, or if you haven’t quite figured out how to manage your digital and handwritten notes in a way that’s conducive to your workflow.


Amazon, amazon.com

It’ll also come with one Pilot Frixion pen and one microfiber cloth. All you’ll need to do is download the Rocketbook app so you can use your phone to scan your notes. The app (for iOS and android) will move your notes to most cloud services including Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, Box, OneNote, Slack, iCloud, email and more. ALSO, even though you’ll have a Pilot Frixion pen, the notebook works with other writing tools in the Pilot Frixion line including the markers and highlighters.

Promising review: “I bought this for my daughter in college at her request. I was skeptical because frankly, it seemed like a product designed to solve a problem that didn’t exist. Plain-paper notebooks have always worked just fine. But after seeing hers, I bought one for myself. After using it, I bought one for work, and now our entire office is converting to Rocketbooks. They’re slim, lightweight, so easy to set up and use, and in a note-heavy environment like our office, will pay for themselves within a month. No more wasted paper (and killed trees). No more constantly buying notebooks and legal pads and 15 different kinds of pens (because you need to use a particular pen with these). Best of all from my standpoint, because you need to scan so you can wipe and reuse, more of people’s notes are now finding their way to files instead of being buried on someone’s desk on a half-used legal pad. The notebook is versatile with planning pages, agenda/calendar pages, dot-matrix pages, and lines pages. It’s an easy five-to-ten minute setup (depending on how tech-savvy you are), with multiple programmable destinations, so you can easily use the same notebook for work and home. Best of all, I no longer feel guilty about jotting quick notes and the rainbow of post-it notes has disappeared from my desk. It’s a solid, easy-to-use product and one of the best purchases I’ve made all year.” —Valerie Sanders

And a six-sheet shredder so you can finally get rid of the documents that you absolutely *won’t* be reusing.

Expandable drawer dividers to separate your garments and make getting dressed in the morning slightly more aesthetically pleasing.

Promising review: “I will never be a person who folds underwear. It’s never going to happen. That photo that comes with this product? Not me. But a simple tool like this turned out to be what it takes just to know where things are. Left. Center. Middle. Any organizer made of cloth was out. I wanted something rigid but adjustable. If an organizer has soft sides, it’s going to end up underneath the things it’s supposed to be separating.

These fit firmly where I put them and there are no corners to snag clothing or hurt your hand on when you reach into the drawer. It’s a well-engineered product. I created three sections to my large top dresser drawer by adding the partitions from front to back. I am so pleased with the difference that I am ordering two more sets so I can do my other drawers also. These OXO dividers cost more than the flimsy ones, but if I wasn’t able to buy these, I would just not buy organizers.” —SeattleBookMama

Promising review: “Love it. What a difference it made to our junk drawer!!! Before things were so hard to find and falling behind the drawer, now the same amount of stuff is in there but we can actually find what we need. Wish I did this earlier. Super configurable.” —Alaina

Exercise cards that’ll help organize your workout routine. This actually seems more efficient than doing what I do — which is check the notes app on my phone to see what exercise is next before getting distracted and scrolling Twitter.

You get 50 cards that include 10 stretches, seven workouts, and a goals and guide card.

Promising review: “Like many of us, I know I should warm up and stretch before and exercise and cool down and stretch after exercise. Also like many of us, I don’t tend to have a good exercise routine or even the best knowledge of what or how to do it, or even the creativity to be able to mix things up. These cards have helped with that. Each card features a picture of an exercise, a description of how to properly perform it, recommended number of reps, and a rating for level of difficulty.” —Lance

A desktop stand riser that could help improve your posture with its elevation, and also comes with storage compartments for all of your work accessories so things can be out of sight and out of mind once you clock out for the weekend (shoutout to everyone still working from home).

Promising review: “After nine years of making do with very sad-looking black plastic desk accessories that had been lying around the office, I decided to upgrade to some nicer organizational items. This monitor stand, in particular, was a huge hit with me and then everyone else wanted one. It’s well-constructed and thoughtfully designed. I like how I can slide my keyboard out of the way and put my coffee up on the stand to clear my work area when needed. The price was reasonable, particularly considering black plastic ones that aren’t half as nice or useful go for about 25 bucks.” —Amazon Customer
