If your basic state of being is tired...we get it. Life can be a series of twists and turns. Well, we’re here to make things a bit easier.
Now we aren’t saying these products will solve all your problems. But they will save you some time and energy in your day-to-day. And you should never underestimate the power of a small victory.
Get one tool that does it all. And no, you don’t have to be an expert. Consider this a brush and hair dryer in one. It features three heat and speed settings, plus a cool option for styling. The oval design helps to smooth your locks and create volume. Hello, good hair days. ($78.42, Amazon)
Toss the tampons. And save yourself the trouble of doing the mental math of when you last changed yours. This menstrual cup is a sustainable option that provides 12-hour protection. And is good for overnight wear. You = covered. ($21.99, The Honey Pot Company)
Let Dash do the cooking. Choose your preferred style (hard-boiled, poached, scrambled, or omelette) and set the timer. Then jump in the shower while your breakfast is cooking. The device will switch off when it’s all done. Eggcellent. ($17.99+, Amazon)
Get help sanitizing. Phonesoap kills bacteria other disinfectants can’t. And you can even charge your phone during the process. It works via UV light to reach every corner so you get 360-degrees of clean. No more sprays or wipes. ($79.95, Phonesoap)
Take out the guesswork. Enter a meal plan that’s filled with delicious and nutritious options. It’s simple: pick the ones that work for your kid and get them delivered weekly to your doorstep. The meals come fully cooked and ready to heat. There’s pizza pockets and broccoli parm, chicken mac and cheese, and veggie bowls. Sigh of relief sold separately. (Plans start at $5.99/meal, Yumble)
Put the knife down. This tool can chop, slice, grate, and spiralize. It’s got 12 blades total, a peeler, cleaning brush, and bin so your ingredients won’t be all over your kitchen countertop. More time to binge Netflix. ($29.99, Amazon)
Ah, face masks. We’re dedicated to wearing them. But we’re over the way they make our glasses fog up. Sound familiar? This anti-fog spray works on all types of glasses, and doesn’t call for constant application. A few spritzes and you’re good for the day. Sigh of relief sold separately. ($14.99, Amazon)
Thanks, 2020, for all the stress. We appreciate it. To alleviate the discomfort and sleep issues that come with clenching and grinding, we turned to mouth guards. And boy do they help. They come in a pack of 10, and each can be worn up to three nights in a row before tossing. You won’t need to boil or cut them. Just rinse after opening and pop one in. Happy snoozing. ($14.99/10 pack, Amazon)
Goodbye, little pill balls. You can run this tiny, battery-powered device over furniture, too. It’ll eat up those annoying tiny fuzzies and loose threads. So you can freshen up what you already have, instead of buying brand-new sheets and sweaters. Win. ($13.20, Amazon)
Upgrade your happy hour with this opener that can uncork 80 bottles in a single charge. And no — it won’t break corks in the process. If you don’t finish your bottle, just use the vacuum sealer option to preserve freshness and flavor. Nothing to wine about here. ($39.95, Wayfair)
