Promising review: “I purchased this after reading the reviews for several low flow models and was very happy with the product. It works great and cuts your shower water bill in half, while helping with the water heating bill too. An added bonus is that your bathroom steams up less too using this product. It is easy to adjust the flow style while showering. There are no installation instructions with the product but here they are: hand tighten on with no tools and do not use plumbers tape. It is that simple. I am getting one for our second bathroom as well. I highly recommend this product to those wanting to save money!” —Ty Falco

A smart plug power strip you can use to easily monitor your energy consumption from anything you happen to plug into it (such as all your tech chargers).


Amazon

Promising review: “I have two of these now. The individual control of each outlet along with the energy monitoring make these a perfect addition to my home automation project (which software system optimizes appliances based upon a defined power budget). With the help of a third-party python library called pyHS100, I have devices like grow lights for my lime tree or chargers for electric scooters turning on when the sun is powering my solar panels or off when there’s not. As a result, these kasa outlets really save me money.” —Kevron

As well as prevent your clothes from smelling and getting damaged? Take care of your washing machines, people — they’re not cheap to replace!

Ok but HOW did that come out of a washing machine!?

Promising review: “I’m happy to say this tablet worked great! Our drum is crystal-clean without a strong odor and there was no residual powder or tablet left. I also tried the Affresh wipe after to clean in and outside the rim, the door, and the detergent tray. Our washer looks brand new. I initially hesitated to buy the wipes but after seeing how well it cleans vs. just using one of my own towels, I’m sold. Having a front load washer in conjunction with hard well water is like a combo of two evils. This did clean the machine much better than I had expected!” —MMak125

Promising review: “Trying to eat healthy. More fruits, vegetables and greens. The quality of fresh produce begins to degrade after two or three days but I’m not willing to shop more than once a week. These Rubbermaid containers really solved that problem.. I was skeptical. I purchased fresh leaf lettuce and raspberries, rinsed them thoroughly, spun the lettuce dry and placed the items in the food saver containers. Eight days later the lettuce is still fresh. The berries remained fresh for five days until they were all eaten. Over the years, I would hate to calculate how much money I’ve wasted throwing away wilted or spoiled lettuce and rotted berries. The savings from discarded produce will pay for these containers quickly.” —M. Hughes

Hope’s Perfect Sink Cleaner & Polish that’ll magically restore the bottom of your kitchen sink and remove all those unsightly stains and scratches. When you think about it, sinks never really “go bad,” we just replace them when they look old and dirty. This polish should buy you a few years.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I am so thrilled with this stuff and how well it worked. I bought my house last year and the white kitchen sink already had some scratches and stains left from the previous owners and over time they only got worse. I tried so hard to get them out but nothing worked and I resigned myself to thinking I was just going to have to live with it until I forked over the money to get an entirely new sink. Enter this product that I ran across and figured I’d give a try, because it couldn’t hurt and it’s so affordable there really wasn’t anything to lose. Much to my delight, it exceeded my expectations and got out all of the dingy stains and even some of the marks that I thought were just scratches and wouldn’t come out! It’s very easy to use and it works right away! I’m so happy I found this product and didn’t have to replace my entire sink just to get rid of the stains!” —Maci

Promising review: “For years I have just been using scissors to trim my wicks but the trimmed pieces would often fall onto my candle wax making them look awful. The trimmer keeps the trimmed portion contained so this doesn’t happen. I don’t really use the bell shaped snuffer often but the tool that you use to bend the wick over into the hot candle wax to snuff it out without all the smoke? Seriously, I’ve been missing out. Tools you didn’t know you needed but they make burning candles so much more enjoyable. Handy storage box, they look nice and seem to be good quality so far.” —CeKaRi

The ring is gone on all three toilets and it only took a few minutes per toilet. I don’t know when I have ever been so totally satisfied with a product.

I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I’ve had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial) the leaves looked healthier almost immediately.

Reviewers also mention it pairs perfectly with a silicone brush cleaning mat ($5.96 on Amazon).

Promising review: “You know how you spend time and effort to find makeup that lasts? No matter how much you makeup you may wear, using long lasting makeup comes at a cost. You can’t just rub some regular soap on your face to get that “all day mascara/eyeliner/foundation” off can you? It’s the same with your brushes. This is coming from someone who really doesn’t care to clean brushes. I only started using them about seven years ago. It was three or so years after that I started trying to clean them. Rarely. And I thought vigorous scrubbing with hand soap was all you needed. It wasn’t so I thought dish soap was all you needed. It still wasn’t. I thought natural discoloration was inevitable for the lazy. Long story short, it turns out I was wrong and life is easy. Elbow grease for years was fine… until I got this stuff on a whim. The same brushes that were slowly permanently discoloring and fraying up had looked near new after my initial clean.” —Not Mary

A set of glass meal-prep containers that’ll encourage you to actually, well, meal prep! Cooking your meals at home can save you soooooo much money, rather than ordering takeout every night. And these containers will allow you to make pretty, Instagramable meals for the week. ✨

Promising review: “These meal prep containers are awesome! I can take my food straight from the oven and put it in container without worrying about melting. There is a vent on the lid and the containers don’t leak if they are sealed. These are also oven-safe and you can section of your food since there is a divider in it (with two sections). Perfect for meal prep and meal portions.” —Sara

A beauty spatula so you can get every last drop out of your cosmetic and personal care items before breaking down and forking over a small fortune to replace them.

Promising review: “I kept debating about buying this. I’m trying to stick to a tight student budget and wasn’t sure if spending money on a little tool like this would end up saving me money in the long run. I ended up getting about a month’s worth of foundation out of a bottle that I would otherwise have considered to be “empty” — and that’s just one bottle so far! For me, totally worth it.” —Reviewtoo

Or a FlipIt! Bottle Emptying Kit for those products that are just a little too big for The Spatty (think shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, condiments).

A foam maker designed to transform your face wash into a luxurious, foamy consistency — which means you can get away with using a little bit less everyday and make your bottle last longer.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It’s also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you’d like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it’s a steal. Definitely give it a try if you’re not sure. It’s a really cool device.” —Knock Knock Me

A silicone cup cover to keep your coffee or tea warm throughout the day, which will help prevent you from having to dump it out and make a fresh cup just because you got distracted and didn’t finish it in time.

And, I’m sorry, but coffee reheated in the microwave just does NOT taste good.

Promising review: “I use these in conjunction with a Mr. Coffee mug warmer. They’re honestly great. The suction power is also good but with warm beverages there is no suction because of the constantly expanding air on the inside. I’ve not yet tried them with cold beverages but I imagine the suction is better with those. They’re great for keeping bugs out and heat in.” —Kenneth Winfield

Promising review: “My hair grows somewhat fast so I find myself coloring my roots at minimum every two weeks, which I think is bad for my hair. This product has been a lifesaver in allowing me to extend that time frame some. I wish I had found it sooner!” —Mmandkcs

A fabric shaver to remove all the pilling on your fav sweaters so you don’t have to buy new ones (even though you really, really want to). 😬

Promising review:This is the best money I have spent in a long time! I was worried it wouldn’t be very nice, being so low priced, but it saved my couch! I put a picture of both my couch cushions, they both used to look like the one on top but now my couch looks brand new! I love this product, would 100% recommend.” —B. Nielsen

A set of reusable coffee pods you can refill day after day with your fav grounds, rather than buying those expensive, disposable ones. It’ll also help reduce your plastic consumption!


amazon.com

Promising review: “These reusable filter cups work PERFECTLY with our Keurig Elite B-40 model. Usually we use K-Cups, but we received a bag of ground coffee as a gift. We attempted to use our old reusable filter cup that we’d had for an old model Keurig, and it just created a mess and left tons of grounds in the cup. Amazon delivered these K & J cups in a day and they solved the problem. The bottom and sides are mesh, which was not true on my old reusable filter cup, and the little lid snaps shut snugly. They come four to a pack, but I don’t see using the others until the one I’m using wears out. Very easy to clean also. So happy to find these!!!” —Jamie von Holstein

And a set of K-Cup cleaning pods to keep your Keurig in tip top condition, because dropping a Ben Franklin on a new one is NOT something you wanna do anytime soon.

Promising review: “I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues and especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results…VERY HAPPY!!” —Corey West

No one will even know you did them yourself!

Promising review: “I am apparently hard on all nail polishes. A typical DIY manicure would last a day or two before chipping. I have tried MANY top coats and DIY gel solutions, but read recent reviews on Seche Vive gel top coat and thought I would try it. I was surprised. I did my nails on a Thursday and they lasted me through Tuesday before chipping. This was pretty amazing.” —Mommy May
