Sometimes we see products online and we instantly go, “Holy crap! Why didn’t I think of that?!” It happens to us constantly, which is why we had to put together this list for you. Here are some of the coolest “why didn’t I think of that” life hack items that will have you instantly adding them to your cart. 

  • Soap Dispenser & Sponge Caddy

    This is an absolutely amazing find. It’s a soap dispenser and sponge caddy. So, you add your dish soap to the bottom, press down on the top with your sponge, and voila! Less hassle while cleaning dishes. And it makes the perfect sponge holder for when it’s not in use, which for me is huge because I feel like I never know where to put that thing.

  • Dipping Sauce Car Vent Clips

    Dipping. Sauce. Cup. Holders?! Seriously, we wish we had thought of this. And trust us we were the only ones because these bad boys made it all the way to Shark Tank. These are dipping sauce cup holders that clip to your car vents. The chicken nugget lover in me is screaming at me to BUY, BUY, BUY!

  • Space Saving Clothing Hangers

    Saving space in my closet is a must. And after I saw these on TikTok I genuinely contemplated why I hadn’t thought of something as genius as this. These are clothing hangers that help you layer your clothes. There is so much space below the standard clothing line that can still make sure they don’t touch the ground, that’s just not being utilized. Now you can utilize that space and thank us for it later.

  • Oreo Cookie Dipping Utensil

    I have lived my whole life without these and now I don’t feel like I can go back. My number one complaint about eating Oreos is how cold my fingertips get when I dip them in my milk because here’s the deal, the whole cookie has to be coated for me to enjoy it. This Oreo cooking dunker is made to help you dip the cookie without having to put your fingers in the milk. So, 1) it’s more hygienic, 2) it’s going to give you a better dipping experience, and 3) it's genius. Just take my money and go genius inventors!

  • Sticky Pad For Car Dashboard

    I thought my boyfriend was insane when I saw him stick a full cup of coffee to this sticky pad on his dash and started driving away! A real fear of hot liquid spilling onto me and everything took over me, but I was surprised when that didn’t happen... Seriously, this sticky pad is mega sticky. Do I recommend you put a full cup of coffee on it, no, absolutely not! But you could definitely put your phone on there and drive around without fear of it falling off the dash. 

  • The Spatty & Spatty Daddy Last Drop Spatula

    Another Shark Tank featured item, this one had me seriously smacking my head going “I could be a millionaire” with this idea. This is a tiny spatula to help you get the last drop out of a bottle. Yeah, that’s incredible. Think about how much more you’ll be able to get out of certain containers. I’m already imagining this for more than just the kitchen. Shampoo and conditioner bottles, anyone? These come in two sizes to help you get into longer neck bottles and hard-to-reach places.

  • Adjustable Measuring Spoon

    We have this one silver measuring cup in our house reserved exclusively for my laziness and convince because it has multiple measurements on the side. After seeing this, I may have a new item to add to the drawer. This is an adjustable measuring spoon to help you measure without having to get out the ring of the table and teaspoon measurements. I feel like this is going to cut down on cook time because I feel like I'm always rattling around the drawer looking for the proper measuring spoon.

  • SubSafe Sub Sandwich Container

    I don’t know who came up with this idea, but it really hits the nail on the head for “Why didn’t I think of that?” Not only is this incredibly ideal for leftovers, but it’s perfect for traveling. Just imagine taking this to work instead of trying to fit your sub into the square lunch box you own? I feel like we all need these in our lives. 

  • Kitchen Gizmo Snap N Strain Strainer

    It seems a bit silly to think that we need to ditch the colanders in our lives, but honestly this tool is certifiably brilliant. I have lost track on the number of times I have boiled potatoes to make mashed potatoes and thought about how silly it was that I couldn’t keep them in the pot to drain the water out. This Snap N Strain is the way of the future. Just snap it in place and there you have it. No need to pull out the colander to drain your pasta or vegetables, you’ve got an easy way to drain the water right from the pan itself. Plus, I’m imagining I'll get less steam burns from holding the colander while I pour the water into it.

  • Watermelon Windmill Cutter

    I just... Come on! This is awesome! I’m not very good at cutting fruit, especially watermelon, and I usually end up having someone take the knife away because they’re worried I'm going to cut myself. This right here is great. It’s an easy-to-use fruit slicer. You push it into the fruit and the windmill at the top cuts it into even cubes for you. Who ever invented this... thank you!

    This is more than just an Must Have, it’s a household essential. If you’re not already aware, dryer lint is one of the easiest ways to start a house fire. Yeah, pretty scary. But that’s why we love this vacuum attachment. This gets into your dryer vent and helps suck out all the built up lint your unable to reach. So not only are you keeping your home and family safe, but you’re using an incredibly cool device to clean.

  • Retractable Burger Fixed Box

    I see it. I like it. I have to have it. This was an instant cart ad for me. Not only are these trending on TikTok, which let’s face it owns my soul, but they’re actually quite ingenious. You can hold all of your toppings in place with just these washable hamburger holders. No more ketchup and mustard stains on your shirts.

  • Dry Food Dispenser

    I don’t know what I love most about this concept; That this food dispenser will help me decide between multiple cereals, or likely lead to me mixing cereal. But this food dispenser isn’t just for cereal. If you’re a snacker you could easily put Goldfish, trail mix, really any variety of dry food.

  • TubShroom Hair Catcher

    Everyone knows that long hair can be a gift, but also a curse because it’s sure to clog the drain at some point. And some tubs have that stopper that sits above the surface and allows hair to get clogged around the spokes. This TubShroom Hair Catcher is an insert that easily allows you to trap the hair and clean it off. It’s a gross job, but someone has to do it.
