10+ Smart Products That Upgrade The Things We Already Own

Brittany Rae 16 Sep 2020

Let's be real: sometimes, you just know your stuff could be used a little differently. Improved upon. Upgraded, even.

Well, never fear. Little annoyances don't have to be an issue anymore, because I have gone out and found some solutions for you. We've got phone grips, we've got mask savers, we've got desk work lights. We've got it all, y'all!

1. A silicone hook for your mask.

Amazon

Because we're all wearing them right now, and they're kind of a pain — literally.

If you find your mask is rubbing against your ears, consider this little mask clip! It'll hold it for you and save you an actual earache.

2. A ceramic mixing bowl for a stand mixer.

Amazon

Because those silver ones are okay, but the ceramic ones? They make the silver ones look like hot garbage. I mean, look how pretty that bowl is! I want one.

3. A PopSocket for your phone.

Amazon

When I tell you that I can't live without one of these, I am only slightly exaggerating. It seriously helps ease the ache in your hands from using your phone, and they're all stylish AF!

4. And while we're at it: A PopSocket mount for your car.

Amazon

This is the other thing I can't live without. Having this stuck to my car dash is a serious godsend for when I need to be navigating around the city.

The coolest part? You can use them around the house, too!

Keeping these anywhere near your desk is going to make your life easier, trust me. They help keep all you cables wrangled and untangled. Rhyming. Anyway, I can't recommend these enough!

6. This life-saving desk accessory.

Amazon

I run my own small business, and I don't think I could do it without this thing. It's a ring light and a phone holder desk mount, and it clips onto most surfaces easily.

I use it the way it's pictured here, but it's also great for vloggers and makeup artists!

Guys. This fan looks like an octopus. Its most popular use is definitely for attaching to strollers to keep babies cool, but there's no limit to where you could use this in your home!

9. This mug warmer.

Amazon

Okay, so this has a few uses. One: as a mug warmer. Duh. Two: as a candle warmer. Three: to heat up queso and keep it warm while you eat it. I know, that last one is genius.

Anything is upgraded with a label. That's science. Like that cat? You wouldn't even know it was a cat if it wasn't labelled. Thank god for this label maker.

If you have a drill, that is. If you don't... get a drill, dude. They're so useful. Like if you need to do some deep cleaning and don't have a tool tough enough, you could pick up some scrubbing attachments to get the job done!
