33 Things Under $10 To Help Relieve Your Life From Pesky Problems

BuzzFeed 1 week ago

A cloud-shaped magnetic key holder so your keys end up in the same place each day — and not in the fridge. Or the hamper. Or the spare bedroom you never go into but somehow your keys ended up in there.

It has an adhesive backing that'll stick to your walls and doors. If you're a renter or are worried about the stickiness, you can always add Command Strips to the back — get some for $2.99.

Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

Bra strap extenders to give you room to breathe (like, literally breathe). It won't be quite as great as the feeling of whipping your bra off at the end of a long day, but it'll come veeeery close.

Promising review: "Great! Not to long like others I was finding! These are great if you need to go up like one to three clips, instead of two inches like others! These were just what I needed and I love you get three sizes and three colors. Totally awesome!" —Steff

Get a nine-piece variety set for $6.89 (available in six set sizes).

A jewelry fastener that'll make wearing that dainty bracelet (with the impossibly tiny clasp) actually possible.

Promising review: "Wonderful helper! I don't know how I fastened a bracelet before ordering this. Each time I use it, it seems to be easier to use." —LuAnne B.

Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four colors).

A life-changing shoe spray that destroys odor-causing bacteria and keeps your best kicks from smelling like death. Sweaty boot and wool sock days are approaching fast — now you and your feet can get through them stink-free.

Promising review: "If I knew how effective this product would be, I would have purchased it months ago when I first started noticing an odor coming from my gym shoes. A quick spray of this stuff and they are good for several uses before I have to respray them again. There is an alcohol smell, but that shouldn't be a surprise if you look at the ingredients and know what the purpose of this spray is. I have found the smell doesn't linger too long, but I use the 'less is more' approach with this spray. You really don't need much for it to do the job." —Jennifer Nicole

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

Oil blotting sheets if you're prone to oily skin but don't feel like washing your face four times a day. Take that (!!!), humidity!

Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oils blotting sheets because they're life savers. THESE ARE AMAZING. Great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I used to use Clean & Clear sheets or knock offs of the same thing but I'll never go back. Give these a try — completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. No negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

Get 100 sheets from Amazon for $6.95.

A double-sided, dressing aid tool with one side for assisting with buttoning, and the other for zipping up jackets. You know, because the last thing you want on sluggish mornings is to get into a war with your clothes!

One reviewer mentioned this gadget was perfect for buttoning up a wedding dress with tons of lil' buttons.

Promising review: "I bought this for my mother who has arthritis and wears blouses with small buttons. She says it's the best ting since sliced bread! It works very efficiently to both button and unbutton, making her much less frustrated." —Mary

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

Satin pillowcases that not only look expensive and feel just like silk, but are great for preventing your hair from knotting over night (annoying!). Good design aesthetic and functionality are like the two pillars of adult life.

Many reviewers mentioned the best way to extend the life of the pillowcase is by hand washing it, or washing on delicate and air drying.

Promising review: "Couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blow dried the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors." —Binary Code

Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in four sizes and 15 colors).

A bottle sealer with a built-up pressure pump, because letting your bubbly drinks go to waste is irresponsible and I will not stand for it. This will keep your Prosecco and sparkling rosé fizzy, just the way it's supposed to be (FINALLY).

Promising review: "Loved this product. So easy to use. Everything is in one — no plug with pump. It stays on and keeps the bubbles in champagne and all carbonated wines. It does not pop off or leak if you lay the bottle back on its side in the refrigerator. It's metal and very strong. Love that you just need to pump the top to take out the air. Great for picnics and BYOBs. Plus it DOES NOT LEAK!" —C. Glidden

Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

A handy car seat clip for holding your purse and groceries safely in place so nothing goes flying during sharp turns.

These clip on the sides of headrests, so they're still attachable even if your headrest doesn't completely detach from the seat.

Promising review: "I bought these for my wife because her purse would always fall over in the back of her Jeep. She was skeptical at first, but now uses these hooks everyday. They are able to hold her tank of a purse without breaking. I originally was looking to buy different hooks, but the headrest of the Jeep would not come all the way off. These hooks are universal because they clip on the side." —Brian

Get a set of two from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in three colors).

Grocery bag handles because who on earth wants to make more than one trip to the car to get the rest of the groceries? Spoiler: NOBODY!!!

Promising review: "It usually takes me a dozen trips from my car to my house to get my groceries inside, and if I carry too many at one time, the handles cut off the circulation in my hands and arms. These special handles solved all my problems. Today, I only made three trips from the car to the house! When I had to put the bags down to open the door, these handles laid on top of the bags and I only had to grab them, instead of searching for all the plastic handles as they flopped around. Now there are no more bag marks on my wrist and my hands don't go numb! Who would have thought that something so simple could make my life so much better?" —Rosemary Smith Dattler

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99.

Shower curtain clips that simply attach to your shower walls to ensure water stays on the *inside* of the tub. IDK about you, but I sure don't want to spend my days moppin' up water when I don't have to!

Promising review: "We live in a small apartment that is a converted attic space. As such we have slanted ceilings throughout different spaces. One such space was in the shower, where at the end there were six or so inches that the shower curtain did not reach. It was not a huge issue in the summer because it was hot, and I needed a little fresh air; however, as it started to cool down, I was losing precious steamy warm air out this giant gap. I saw this product in a BuzzFeed article, and it was exactly what I was looking for! The adhesive is very strong but the curtain itself is easy to remove to open. I only used one, and it was strong enough to keep the whole side of the wall blocked." —starvingcollegestudent

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

LED-dimming stickers so you can sleep in complete peace (and darkness!) and not be bothered by obnoxiously flashing router and console lights.

They dim 50-80% of the light, so you can still tell that your devices are still actually *on* and functioning. You can always double them up to completely block out the light source if you'd like (many reviewers do this) or buy the stronger full black-out edition!

Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! The product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $5.99.

A soap bar that'll look the toughest, I just chased my escaped dog and fell into a mud hole stains straight into the eyes and banish them for good. Good day, sir. I said, GOOD DAY.

Promising review: "This stuff works better than shout or bleach. My dog escaped our yard and was covered in mud. My husband fell in a mud hole while trying to catch her and she got mud all over him when he finally did. I tried shout, laundry detergent and bleach and it didn’t even make a difference. Fels Naptha got that Oklahoma red dirt out of a white t-shirt. I really thought I was going to have to trash the clothes but the shirt looks good as new!!!! This stuff really is magic." —Sooner28

Get it from Amazon for $6.07.

A pair of tweezers with suuuuuper pointy tips that can do it all: Remove blackheads, ingrown hairs, splinters, teeny hairs, ticks, and whatever else a bad day could possibly throw at you.

Promising review: "I have all three tweezers and they by far are THE BEST TWEEZERS I HAVE EVER PURCHASED. From removing hair and blackheads, these tweezers definitely do the job. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone being that they have excellent grip on them as well. I have also found them very helpful in removing splinters and ticks as well. You will not go wrong making this purchase of well put together tweezers." —Larissa Wright

Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

A miracle-working hand cream to relieve and heal extremely dry, cracked skin. The harsh winter winds are encroaching, so stock up on this stat.

Promising review: "Does this product need another five star review? Nope. But I had to. This is truly a miracle product!! I have the driest skin in the winter. To the point that I will look down at my hands to notice they are bleeding from all the various cracks. This product made a major difference after just one use! Here I am weeks later and my hands have no cracks, look younger, and are no longer red. Can O'Keefe's fix potholes too!?!" —P. Neuber

Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

~Handy~ nail clippers featuring a rotating swivel head and extra-long handles that'll give you easier access to hard-to-reach nails so you can get a clean cut for once.

Promising review: "Total comfort and ease for those that suffer arthritis or aged weaker hands. Just set the angle for your comfort and clip with ease. Not only are these clippers super sharp, the but the long handles reduce the pressure needed to clip toe and finger nails. Even the younger set will be pleased with the adjusting angel of the cutters. I sure wish I this product ten years ago. I am 100% pleased and recommend for anyone to use." —Allen F. & Virginia S. Capel

Get them from Amazon for $5.98.

A ~handy~ glove that'll remove tons (and I mean TONS) of pet hair as you shower them with all the pets and snuggles. They'll think you're just givin' 'em some love, when really, you're giving yourself a more hair-free home.

Promising review: "Love this! The picture is from just one use. It's easy to use on sensitive areas like the tail and belly that a brush couldn't. I got way more hair out from my double-coated Russian blue cat than a brush ever did." —mariya spencer

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

A set of cleaning sponges so you're prepared to tackle any tough surface cleaning job the moment you spot it — from kid marker scribbles (you looked away for *one second!!) to the seemingly permanent stains in your sink.

Promising review: "I love these sponges. I use them in the kitchen, the bathroom, and on the sides of the pool. But the use I like the best is to clean my vinyl wood floors. They get the spots and footprints off quickly without damaging the floor. I've use mops but they didn't remove what everyone had tracked in without pressing down really hard. These work quickly and efficiently." —D. Morales

Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

A handy tool so you can ditch the struggle that is fake eyelash application. It holds the falsies in place so adding glue is easy, and actually attaching them to your lash line is even easier. Thank the heavens, honestly.

Promising review: "Very easy to use and affordable. I was able to put on my lashes in no time. I can't believe I use to apply my lashes without this amazing tool. I place my lashes directly in the center and adjust the ends. My lashes go on in 1min it less with this tool." —CITY Beauty

Get it from Amazon for $4.98 (available in three colors).

Reusable produce storage bags for keeping your freshly bought fruits and veggies actually fresh, so you have a real chance at eating them this time. Hello! Look at these results!

Promising review: "We decided to do a little test. One banana in a bag and one out, same location in the kitchen. This was after nine days you can see that’s there’s a distinct difference in the bananas. Amazing product!" —Trio Mum

Get a 20 pack from Amazon for $9.88.

Shower curtain rings with two separate hangers for your curtain and liner that'll make it incredibly easy to remove either for cleaning. Save the precious free time you have during the week to do fun things, instead of fighting to get your grimey curtain off.

Promising review: "Where have these hooks been all my life?! They make removing the shower curtain liner for washing SO much easier. The quality is great, and they actually glide across the pole." —CASEINPOINT

Get it from Amazon for $5.79 (available in three styles and five colors).

A pre-filled grocery list to keep track of what you need throughout the week so when you hit up the store, you're not aimlessly wandering grocery store aisles with no game plan. That = bad.

Promising review: "This is a wonderful grocery list. It has multiple sections pre-written and it even has some blanks in each section so that you can add any items that aren't already on the list. You can even put the list on the fridge because there are magnets on the back. Very handy. :)" —Lydia

Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

And a suuuuuuuper duper small spatula made to get into the nooks and crannies of your best beauty products and remove every last drop so when you run out last minute (it always happens on the busiest days!!!), you're still ~covered~.

Promising review: "Fantastic product. I'm able to get every drop out of my very expensive face cream. It works on bottles, jars, etc. I only wish I would have bought this product years ago. Oh, the money I could have saved. Just clean with soap and water after use and store in an upright position (rubber end up) and I think you will get your money's worth out it. Already bought more as gifts." —HMSK

Get it from Amazon for $6.12.

*And! Get a 10-pack of tiny jars ($6.99) for any leftover makeup you scraped out of the original bottle.

Take THAT, pesky problems!
