1. Adjustable suspenders to give your bed a Steve Urkel makeover. "Did I do that?" Yes, you did!

Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.99.

2. A stainless steel kit for updating the finish of your old appliances. At this price, it really is a steel!

Promising review: "This paint rocks! I couldn't spend $2,500+ on a new stainless steel fridge, so I decided to paint the sides of my fridge a black satin and then use this product for the door and freezer door. It worked perfectly! The stainless steel dust in the product creates the stainless texture look, is durable, and will still allow magnets to stick to it." —R.

Thank you, Terro." —Allison M. Dickson

This is the only rug pad that can withstand the wrath of the beagle!" —Bittersweet513

12. A super satisfying tube squeezer that'll help you use up every last drop of toothpaste.

Promising review: "This simple plastic device has changed my life. How do I describe my life journey with toothpaste technology? As a child, I would grab the tin tube of toothpaste and squeeze it from the middle. Toothpaste would ooze out and most of it would end up on the sink ledge, my hands, or my shirt. After a few days and nights, the tube would end up with toothpaste on one end of the tube, toothpaste on the other end, and a no man's land without toothpaste in the center. I suffered for years with this. As tin tubes gave way to plastic, nothing changed. Still the center desert of toothpaste haunted me. I yearned for a solution. And then one day, the internet. And then Amazon. And this simple beautiful solution. My life is fulfilled. Nirvana has been achieved." —T. DugasGet it from Amazon for $5.12 or from Jet for $5.98. amazon.com
