A large cup holder , because whoever designed the built-in ones in your car didn’t consider the fact that you exclusively drink from XL water bottles and trenta Starbucks cups.

Promising review : “The console cupholders in the Chevy Colorado are ridiculously small.
Good for a 12-oz paper cup and that’s it.There is a thick rubbery liner within the cupholder area, and this Smart Kup slides in and grips nicely.
Also, it goes in deep enough to be stable.With a full 40-oz insulated Hydro Flask in it, the holder doesn’t move or tip over or pop out of the cup holder hole during sharp turns .
The cup also keeps the Hydro Flask from falling out of the cup, because it sits deep enough.” — Bartimus Max

I boiled 8 ounces of organic whole-wheat elbow noodles, drained and then added 2 tablespoons of butter, 2-ish tablespoons of milk (or yogurt), and then 3 tablespoons of the cheese mix.I did add a pinch of salt to kick up the flavor a bit.The package has a zip lock and the bag I got is good until October, so 7 months?

I can get it into corners and under my couch and coffee table without any extra effort.

I purchased a pitcher but found myself constantly refilling it, I’m talking multiple times a day because my family and I drink so much water.Well, I found this dispenser and I’m extremely satisfied.It lasts a couple of days before I have to fill it again.It’s a perfect size to fit in the fridge and is not to heavy once filled.
I definitely recommend for anyone wanting to switch from bottled water.” — NPeif

19.A cooling weighted blanket because summer may assuage your SAD (seasonal affective disorder) symptoms, but your anxiety could care less about the sun.Amazon Pro tip: For the most therapeutic effect (increased melatonin, decreased cortisol, and less stress/anxiety), go for a blanket that is roughly 10% of your body weight.It doesn’t hurt to go heavier, but it does take some time to get used to, so give it a few days!
Promising review : “I’ve always had trouble sleeping ever since I can remember.I move around a lot, twist and turn, and take sometimes HOURS to fall asleep — even then my sleep tended to be very poor.I would find that putting multiple blankets or pillows would help, because of the weight, so I decided to give this product a try.
Ever since I started to use this blanket, I’ve had a lot less trouble falling asleep and STAYING asleep until I need to wake up for work.This definitely helps with anxiety and insomnia issues; I guess it makes me feel secure/safer.It’s definitely worth it!” — Natali Galindo

What’s included : one brush spinner brush, two spindles, one spinner bowl, one splash guard ring, eight flexible brush collars, and one collar stand.
I have one of these and my brushes have seriously never been cleaner.All you have to do is fill the bowl halfway with water and brush cleanser, attach your brush to whichever collar fits, dip it into the water, and turn the spinner on.I found there’s a *bit* of a learning curve to using it (you have to hover your brush right at the top of the water and not fully submerge it), but once you get the hang of it, it’s actually pretty fun.The best part, IMO, is that you can spin your brushes almost completely dry! When I used to wash them by hand, I typically had to let them dry overnight before I could use them again but now they’re ready to go in less than an hour.
Promising review: “Works AMAZINGLY well! Had all my brushes clean and looking brand new in the time it normally would have taken to hand wash one brush.If you hate cleaning your brushes, then you need this product.So easy and fun! I only wish I would have bought this sooner!” — Tellie82

37.And a Bluetooth-enabled eye mask so you can listen to white noise or the sweet, sweet sound of Cillian Murphy telling a “Sleep Story” on the Calm app (highly suggest).amazon.com , amazon.com
After a bout of pandemic-induced insomnia I picked up one of these USB-chargeable masks and can honestly say it was LIFE changing.
If you’re sensitive to light or sound, this mask is where it’s at.The contoured, cool-to-the-touch eye pads are super cozy and extra padding on the bridge of the nose ensures no light seeps in.I was concerned about feeling the headphones through the mask and not being able to sleep in my usual position (mountain climber, the hand’s down comfiest position), but they really are unnoticeable.I can sleep through the night with it on and the Velcro straps have never once gotten stuck in my hair.
Promising review : “I always have a lot of trouble going to sleep the moment I lay down in bed.
I would always browse on my phone till my eyes get tired and fall asleep.This eye mask blocks out the light and the music blocks all the noise around me.It is incredibly soft and very comfortable to wear.I could wear it all night long during sleep without hurting my ears like a regular earphone does to me.” — Si Lia
