Pictured here is the medium size – perfect for the medium thickness cords around the house. You can find these gadgets online or in specialty stores.

Rubbermaid Paint Buddy

Got to love this handy tool! If you’re renovating, you should think about picking up this really cool gadget. The Rubbermaid Paint Buddy is a touch-up paint roller with onboard paint storage. After painting a room, the user stores excess paint from the project in a Rubbermaid Paint Buddy and labels the cap with room and color information. Later, when a wall needs a minor touch-up, the user simply removes the clear cap, opens the valve and applies the paint to the area with the built-in roller. When finished, the valve is closed to seal the bottle and the roller is either cleaned or replaced. You can find it at home renovation stores.

Unii Cosmetic Case

We love the Unii Cosmetic Case! It’s magnetic and holds all of your makeup refills in one place. It’s perfect for women on the fly and it’s environmentally friendly since you can purchase refills for your makeup without creating the waste of excess packaging. Find it online.

The Spork

A timeless classic, there are so many different types of Sporks on the market. A great way to reduce waste and space, this handy spoon/fork combination has been reducing lunchbox clutter since the late 1800’s. You can find spork’s in the household items isle of the grocery store.

Flameless Candles

A safe, environmentally alternative to beeswax candles, these battery powered candles can be left burning all night. They’ve come a long way from the first models, and have a realistic flickering flame light that sets the mood without the fire risk. You can find many sizes and styles at home decor stores.

The Little Black Dress Organizer

Everyone should have an LBD in their closet – even one for their jewelry! The Little Black Dress by Umbra® is a stylish way to store earrings, necklaces and bracelets. This two-sided organizer hangs on a rod or hook to maximize space and swivels so you can see your jewelry collection easily, with clear pockets on one side and hanging loops on the other.
