These cult-favorite, ridiculously affordable cooling sheets are a must-have for summer.
A blank acrylic dry erase board you can install by the side of your bed as an easy way to keep track of your schedule for the week, or writing motivational messages to yourself like "Please make sure all the Goldfish crackers end up in your mouth and not all over your bed."
A set of off-white sheer curtains to add a bit of sophisticated flair to your windows, but still let the sunlight stream in. Honestly, these are so pretty that Maria von Trapp would 11/10 pull them down and make a bunch of fancy matching outfits out of them.
A set of trendy clear tiered organizing cubes to organize all your favorite things in a much more chic, spacious way than a full-on shelf would — not to mention a heck of a lot cheaper than a full-on shelf, too.
Promising review: "They actually were bigger than I anticipated which was actually pretty awesome. I hung them in the window of my office and its beautiful when they catch light. Definitely worth the money when it puts a smile on your face." —Emmy Ann

Promising review: "So this was a total impulse buy, but I’m sooo glad I bought it! Literally no dislikes. I bought the mustard yellow in the 60x80 and it's the greatest thing everrrr. So pretty and comfortable. I’m obsessed. 🥰 I will definitely be purchasing as a gift for family and friends in the future." —Kassandra Emerson

Promising review: "I am a very hot sleeper therefore, I am very picky about my sheets. These sheets are very comfortable and do not make me hot. They are soft and very comfortable. Also, the company is great to work with! Excellent customer service! When my sheets arrived, there was a small problem with the fitted sheet so I emailed them (the sheets came with a flier with their contact info) and they sent me another fitted sheet right away. They said they are a family owned business and really want the customer to have a great experience. I was impressed with that level of service especially in this day and age! Bottom line: great sheets, excellent customer service and great price! Do not hesitate to buy!" —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "Recently, thanks to COVID-19, I visited my parents and ended up staying with them to shelter in place. The guest bedroom is small with two beds. Mine is up against a wall. The sheets I bought pop off all the time. Drives me insane in normal circumstances, but when the bed is against a wall, it's so much worse. So far, these have been exactly what I needed." —Dee Fields

Psst — you can check out the TikTok featuring the mirrored digital alarm clock to see it in action! Reviewers also mention that the alarm sound is effective without sounding harsh and that it goes into ~Night Mode~ to prevent brightness from disturbing your sleep.
Promising review: "Love love love this clock ... sleek and definitely a statement piece. Alarm is subtle it will definitely wake you up however it will not scare the B-Jesus out of you. Love the extra ports on the side to charge other things with it." —Meika B.

Promising review: "These curtains were everything I didn't know I needed! I used two panels in my living room on my French patio doors and they provide a little privacy, but allow so much sunshine in the room. So beautiful and make the space look really elegant! I loved them so much that I bought a second set for my dining room windows too :) For the price point....SO WORTH IT! Elegant and airy!" —Celest M.

Bluewine Studio is a California-based, sister-owned Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in handmade candles and air fresheners.
Promising review: "WOW. Literally the cutest candle ever!!!!! I'm obsessed. Looks exactly like the pictures and even came with a little bag of extra 'Fruit Loops.' Sooooo adorable I definitely recommend buying and it would make a great gift! Oh yeah. It also smells amazing. My only issue is that it's so pretty that I never want to use it!!!" —daisy
Get it from Bluewine Studio on Etsy for $17.99 (available in two designs and in 12 scents).
Promising review: "Just received these cute little boxes and am in love with them. Very thick and sturdy plastic but easy enough to open. These will work perfectly for filling solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts as I don't have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off. I imagine these would also be great for pretend food for kids' play-sets or for a kid's trinket box. Overall I love them, love their feel, love the colors and am very happy." —Mary

Promising review: "I'm an incoming freshman this fall and I bought this to add some personality to my dorm. It has beyond exceeded my expectations! I placed it directly on top of my dorm bed as shown in the display photos and am so pleased with how it looks. It fits perfectly with the grey/white color scheme I was going for and have received numerous compliments from both my friends and RAs when they've visited. I cannot stress enough how much of an 'aesthetic feel' it adds to my dorm." —jhsgf
Get it from Amazon for $15.99+.
Promising review: "'Great glow, beautiful colors like sprinkles!' This comment is my 9-year-old's reaction to the glow in the dark stars, and it was a good price and very easy to install. It also sticks very well and I highly recommend this if you want to give your room a 'gleaming glow.' My daughter's room is really dark so these stars look great. We are enjoying them." —Kindle Customer

Promising review: "I love The Office and love having a piece of it in my home office. Great little sign. Good quality and adhesion is strong. Highly recommend!!" —Bethie D.

One side is faux-fur and the other side is plush velvet; the twin set comes with one pom-pom fringed pillow sham, and other size sets include two.
Promising review: "If my house caught on fire, this is the first thing I’d grab. But seriously, this is one of my favorite things in my whole house. I feel like it tied my entire room together. I get so many compliments on it and it seriously so cozy and well made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It's incredibly soft and isn't the type of 'fur' that will mat and get gross-looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying this ... do it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing also. Super soft and the pom-pom fringe is adorable." —SK
Get it from Amazon for $51.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and 29 colors).
I got one of these for my mom for Christmas (her entire kitchen is pink, it is a Big Mood) and can confirm it is QUITE beautiful in person.
Promising review: "I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot. I like it so much I ordered a second one for another part of the house." —hottytoddy
Get it from Amazon for $16.84+ (available in eight colors).
The Alpha Loft is a UK-based, queer-owned Etsy shop established in 2020 that specializes in accessible digital art.
I recently purchased three stunning printables from The Alpha Loft (I got the ones for "the last great american dynasty," "august," and "gold rush," the latter of which is also available separately in the shop) and I am simply in love. I ended up putting them over my bar cart area. To simplify the whole process, I bought the prints and then uploaded them on Mixtiles, a website that makes custom lightweight framed art prints with sticky tape right on the back to you can just stick 'em right on the wall when they arrive. It was *ridiculously* seamless and I'm in love with this corner of my apartment!
Get a set of three digital downloads from The Alpha Loft on Etsy for $21.55 (and check out the rest of the shop's designs here!).
Another bonus? If you flip the lid over, it has a wooden base, so you can *also* use this as a teensy snack table. I recently got one of these for my new apartment to stash my candles and ~candle accessories~ in and it's pretty much become my favorite piece of furniture?? I use it to prop up my feet during work hours and sometimes if I want to eat on my couch I'll use it as a tray. It's also sturdy enough to sit on, if I ever wanted to have guests over and needed an extra chair. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy to set up — I had it done in less than ten minutes, and probably didn't even need the directions. It also just looks so darn cute (and comes in so many colors that I'm tempted to buy another!).
Promising review: "I was using a small foldable step stool in my bedroom to reach the top shelves of my wardrobe. But you know, those things aren't pretty. It wasn't be bringing me joy, just begrudging utility. This ottoman brings me joy. It's pretty, it's lightweight so I can move it easily to use it as a step stool, and the storage capacity is perfect for things like my nightly moisturizers, my kindle and journals, and other little miscellaneous things." —Monica N.

Each mirror includes a small hook on the back for installation, but a lot of reviewers mentioned they just used Command strips to install.
Promising review: "I just moved to a new place and was really struggling with what to put on the walls. I found these in a BuzzFeed post and thought, 'Sure, let's give it a try.' They were cheap enough that if they didn't work out I wouldn't be mad about the money spent. They ended up looking great though! They really helped pull together some of the wall space I had no clue what to do with. They add a bit of contemporary style, without feeling like I have to dedicate all the decor in my house to that style. Plus, they help brighten up the room. I have one set up in my living room and another in my bedroom. I might buy a third set to help add to both previous sets as these walls are huge, but so far I’m loving it. I don't know about the adhesive part. I put them in with nails." —Jennifer
Get a set from Amazon for $19.09+ (available in four shapes).
Promising review: "My friend had this tumbler and I ordered right when I saw it. I always sleep with a drink by my bed and this is the perfect size. The lid means I don't spill it when sleepy and uncoordinated. The multiple color choices allowed me to get one that matches my curtains and bed spread. Huge fan of this guy." —Mary Kate
Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in 28 colors and in two size counts).
Promising review: "I took a chance and bought this originally as a 'Band-Aid fix' to re-finish a desk. I had looked in stores in the contact paper aisles, but all of them were just that ... paper. THIS item is actually a thin sheet of vinyl (?) with adhesive, and I ended up liking it so much I bought more and re-finished my kitchen countertop with it as well! Highly recommended if you want to change the look of your counters but you don't have the money for a full remodel just yet. It can be cleaned with dish soap and water just like a real countertop." —Ezra Boyd
Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in five sizes).
Promising review: "I am really happy with this basket! It's exactly what I was looking for! I absolutely love the way my fiddle-leaf fig looks and fit in it! My pot is a 10 inches so I ordered the large basket. It was a little snug going in but it fits perfectly! The basket seems to be well made and sturdy. I definitely recommend it and will most likely order more!" —Jennifer D.
Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three sizes).
Promising review: "No more sleepless nights. I was starting to suffer from insomnia because I have a slightly old box spring mattress. I started waking up with extreme neck and back pain. Since I’m on a tight budget I couldn't just go buy a new bed. So I found this and thought I’d give it a try. So far it's been three days and I have not woken up in the middle of the night and it feels amazing." —Yarixa
Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in 2- or 3-inch depth, with or without a topper, and in nine standard bed sizes).
Also, the weight capacity on these is NO JOKE. Even the smaller ones hold up to 15 pounds, to the point where reviewers were balancing textbooks on them.
Promising review: "If you are running out of space for your books, get these bad boys right away. They are incredibly strong, can hold several heavy books, and give your bedroom an incredible look." —Amazon Customer
Get it from Amazon for $11.50+ (available in two sizes individually or as a set of three and in silver and white).
Promising review: "I was originally looking for silk pillowcases, but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven't seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again." —Kate
Get a set of two from Amazon for $6.29+ (available in four sizes and 51 colors).
Promising review: "I didn't want anything too bulky on my nightstand but I like to have several books I like to read in bed. I previously had them stacked on top of each other and found this and was afraid it might be cheaply made but it is sturdy and beautiful! I’m such a bookworm and I am in love with this added piece to my room." —Stephy Lynn
Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two colors).
Promising review: "These pillow covers exceeded my expectations. I needed to cover up some older and worn decorative pillows, so I chose solid corduroy to accent my home colors. The cool thing about these covers is that, along with fitting well, the fabric is super soft! Most decorative pillow covers tend to be scratchy; we ACTUALLY use our pillows for naps, so this is great! The coverings easily slipped over my pillows, and the zipper closing worked with ease. The color was just as shown (blue). I will definitely order these again." —zbergteacher
Get a set of two covers from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 30 colors and nine sizes).
Lovely Earthlings is a Kentucky-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2011 that specializes in art prints, tote bags, and greeting cards.
Promising review: "These prints are gorgeous and such a good deal for high quality. I can't wait to frame them! They are also perfect for gifting and would be a beautiful touch to any home. I got three prints and already want more." —Alison
Get it from Lovely Earthlings on Etsy for $25+.
It comes with eight different light modes, including a *twinkle* mode, with a controller attached to the lights so you can easily switch between them.
Promising review: "Love the ease of these lights! I bought two sets for two different bedrooms for my daughters and they ABSOLUTELY love them! They are easy to hang up over the curtains. I love that I don't have to worry about trying to string together several strands of Christmas lights that are way too long and super heavy over the curtain rod. The LED lights are very lightweight so they don't put any extra weight on my curtain rods. Also, we love the different light modes that it can do. My girls love the warm glow that it gives to their bedrooms. The first thing my almost teenage daughter said was, 'My room looks like a Pinterest room!' So overall, it was a WIN-WIN! Definitely worth the money!" —stayathomemom
Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in seven colors).
Promising review: "Very cute! I bought it for a friend for her birthday and she loved it. It's very aesthetically pleasing and nice to the touch, but definitely will break if you drop it, so keep it in a safe area. It's the perfect size to display your special jewelry. It's very nicely made, and is perfect for someone who loves that natural aesthetic." —Lisa
Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
Promising review: "It's so cute! I got it in flamingo pink, which my little one loves. It's a shiny glossy finish — beautifully and elegantly made! It's compact, small and portable. Very pleasant and satisfying shape aesthetically! Large power-on, volume, and pairing up buttons on the right underside and adorable blue indicator light on the left. It's easy to pair with a phone and a laptop by Bluetooth. The sound is incredible for such a small device! Plus the built-in mic is great for using at home or in the car. It's very convenient to charge by using a micro usb. I’m pleased with my purchase and would recommend to my friends." —Olivia
Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five colors).
Promising review: "This basket has been wonderful so far. I had a few blankets taking up space in my closet and so I purchased this in hopes of making some space for other things. It's definitely doing its job. It's currently holding two queen-sized fleece blankets, a queen-sized weighted blanket, and two pillows. Super spacious! It did come folded up but if you follow the instructions that come with the basket, it will easily get some shape and hold onto it without it flopping over." —CCLP
Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors and two sizes).
Promising review: "I LOVE how beautiful these are, like hand-painted beads on my little one's closet doors. They look great on a soft sage green background. There's a tiny bit of texture in the paint which you can see through the decal at the right angle, but most often guests assume I painted them myself! The smoother the surface the better, but I would definitely buy these again." —Alexis
Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
Promising review: "Lightweight, sturdy, and svelte. Great to combine with boxes with open tops. Requires a decent amount of force to fully attach the joints to the metal panels. Once fully assembled with joints entirely engaged, the structure is VERY satisfyingly sturdy. Can easily lift the entire empty structure and feels rigid. Highly recommend for minimalistic modular organizer shelf." —John D.
Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in five colors and two sizes).
Promising review: "I am chronically cold and have a bunch of very nice knit cardigans. I usually end up leaving them laying over chair backs or recliners and cluttering things up, so I bought these to have a good place to hang them. The thick wood prevents stretching damage from the weight of the sweaters, and not using a hook prevents damage and holes in the knit. Definitely worth the upgrade." —Amazon Customer
Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two colors).
Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

Psst — this insulated strip also stops air conditioning from escaping out of the crack under the door, saving energy and money!
Promising review: "Product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation, I live in an apartment in Manhattan and never noticed how much sound comes in and out, until I had to be on conference calls working from home! This little tape made a big difference, took me a couple of minutes to install." —Sandra Revueltas
Get it from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors and two sizes).
Promising review: "This has been a lifesaver for me! My purses are no longer all over the floor in my closet. They all fit nicely on here. I love this so much. The packaging was nice and everything came in perfect condition. I have about 10 purses on it right now and it's really nice and strong. It fits on my door perfectly but you do have to push on the door a bit in order for it to fully close and open. However, that is not a problem for me at all. It's very easy for me to see all my purses now and my closet is no longer a mess. From other reviews I've seen, I know this can definitely hold a lot of weight and way more bags then I have on it. I love the way it looks!" —Jennifer
Get it from Amazon for $29.95.
Promising review: "I love these stacking storage organizers. They fit perfectly in the bathroom drawers, even if you stack them. I use the smaller ones for holding cotton makeup pads and other smaller cosmetic items. I store fingernail polish and items I don't use every day in the larger square containers that fit on the bottom. The long ones are used in the top drawer for toothpaste, hairbrushes, tubes of smaller first aid items, moisture eye drops, etc. I liked them so well, I ordered a second set and threw away the thin, funky plastic organizers I had used for years. These are much classier." —JW
Get a set from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in a six and 10-piece set).
Psst — this is waterproof, so reviewers use it in the bathroom and kitchen, too!
Promising review: "This is so perfect for my needs. I have a small bedroom, but needed shelving for my plant and journals. It is very light and super easy to put together. Perfect for me and inexpensive. I got the large one." —monet
Get it from Amazon for $26.28+ (available in three sizes and in two colors).
1801 & Co. is a Minnesota-based Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in family wall calendars, chore charts, wedding signs, and more.
Promising review: "I love it! I got it so fast after ordering and it's perfect. I love the sleek design for my small home office space. I can't function at work without a dry erase board but couldn't find any that would look nice in my office space which is in the corner of my master bedroom! Having functional office space but not LOOK like office in the bedroom is challenging but this acrylic board is PERFECT. The black pen that comes with it is very nice fine tip and erases without a trace." —Dawn Powell
Get it from 1801 & Co. on Etsy for $17.96+ (originally $23.95+; available in multiple thicknesses and sizes as well as three hardware colors).
Promising review: "I purchased these trays for food displays. They are thin and pretty small but everything looked great on them! They definitely can't handle anything incredibly heavy so in the future I’d use them as decorative trays for utensils/napkins or cheese platters but you can't beat the price. I love the colors." —melissa houghtalin
Get it from Amazon for $12.48 (for a set of four).
I bought about 60 of these six years ago just to streamline the ~aesthetic~ of my closet, and I have now carried them with me through three closets and two big moves and can't imagine using any other kind of hanger. The velvet locks all my shirts and coats in place so I never have to worry about finding them bunched up at the bottom of my closet whenever I jostle them looking for something to wear, and they have been a *godsend* for reducing the space taken up in my closet. I also just love how sleek and organized they make my closet look. A few reviewers mentioned the velvet coming off on their clothes, but I've never had an issue with the beige ones.
Get a set of 30 from Amazon for $23.90+ (available in 11 colors, three sizes of sets, and in shirt and suit hangers).
Promising review: "I'm really very happy with this hanger. I travel a lot and this hanger is going to help me take all my pants and save a ton of room. The hanger is made of sturdy stainless steel and super easy to use. I saved a good amount of room by being able to hang five pairs of pants on one hanger. I'll definitely been getting more." —Laura
Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
Promising review: "Looooove these little guys. They look incredibly real, and give some life to the apartment. I have these on my coffee table and a few in the bathrooms. I get compliments on them all the time — just bought more for my sister!" —Lee A.
Get a set of four from Amazon for $27.99.
Promising review: "I purchased this because I was always losing my remotes. Don't ask me how since I live in a tiny studio, but it happened more times than I can count. I finally decided I wanted a remote caddy and glad I purchased this one. It really can't be beaten for the price. My couch sits right next to my bed, so I am able to reach it from both spots. Super convenient whether I am in bed or in on the couch. I do have a bed with an adjustable base (controlled by another remote I was constantly losing), so I was concerned that it would not work when the bed was adjusted. Luckily it fights pretty tightly between the mattress and the platform. Every so often I do have to slide it back to its original position, but that is not very often. There is a slight odor when you take it out of the plastic, but it dissipated quickly. Overall, quite happy with my purchase!" —L Math

Promising review: "The first time I saw this for dirty-not-dirty clothes (you know, the jeans you're going to wear again but want to make sure you *eventually* wash) I was like 'That. Is. Genius.' Apparently everyone on Instagram and blogs and the internetverse thinks so too, but frankly it works well and is better than transferring clothes between bed and chair over and over again. This was so easy to put together that even I didn't mess it up." —Kim Dee
