Love might not conquer all, but these comfy sleep headphones to drown your partner’s snoring will pick up the slack.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1.

A set of silicone anti-snoring nose vents to dilate nostrils and help promote healthy air flow, so whichever one of you snores won’t be as likely to wake the other one up in the middle of the night.


Amazon

Each set comes with four reusable vents in different sizes, so you can find one that perfectly fits your nose.

Promising review: “I think I would stop breathing and then wake myself up with a big snort. That not only woke me up but it would wake my husband up. I also think I was not getting deep sleep because of this snoring and waking. First night I tried it, I got the best sleep in years. My husband is also pleased. Highly recommend.” —Bob Smith

2.

Plus a set of super-comfy wax earplugs that mold to the shape of your inner ear like putty, in case your partner snores like they’re trying to one-up a freight train and you’re in dire need of some peaceful shut-eye.


amazon.com

TBH, I swear by these so aggressively that I have them on a subscription. They’re like ear glue. My apartment is on a busy street and my upstairs neighbor is a noisy human being (does this count as a subtweet??) and once I pop these babies in I can barely hear a thing. Plus, my ears never get sore with these in like they do with headphones or other earplugs. Check out my full review of Macks wax earplugs for more deets!

Promising review: “I tried everything to drown out my husband’s snoring. I bought several other earplugs on here. I tried turning white noise up in my headphones and listening to it during the night. I tried sleeping in other rooms. But NOTHING works like these. When you get the airtight seal in your ear just right, it blocks all the loud noise. And the best part is I am still able to hear my alarm in the morning (although it is a louder alarm tone right beside my side of the bed). Get these and you won’t regret it. They are affordable and literally saved my marriage. I can finally sleep in peace.” —Ansley Oermann

3.

Or a pair of wireless sleep headphones to play white noise or the music of your choice in a comfy headband that, unlike in-ear headphones, is perfect for side-sleepers.


Amazon

Bonus: you can use these as hybrid earmuffs/headphones in the winter!

Promising review: “I love love love these! I have been suffering from insomnia for over a year. Partly because my husband snores so loudly. I’ve tried regular earbuds, which fall out, sleep aids, you name it. Nothing else was working, so finally broke down and bought these. I’m so glad I did! Last night I wore these sleep headphones for the first time and fell asleep so fast! I put white noise on my Amazon Prime music and it completely drowned out the snoring! Definitely try these if you have trouble falling asleep. They were super comfy and easy to sync with my phone. The instructions were quite detailed but they were so easy I didn’t need to read the instructions.” —Julie Simbto

A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner you can quite literally “set and forget” to maintain its cleanliness over time — once you apply it after a shower, you just have to wait 8 to12 hours and it’ll quietly tackle the soap scum, grim, oils, mold, and mildew stains without either of you having to argue over ~whose turn~ it is to clean it.


Amazon

Promising review: “We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine, in addition to purchasing the Wet & Forget Mold and Mildew Remover for use on the vinyl siding of our house. This is truly an overnight sensation!” —Amazon Customer

5.

A magnetic chore chart so you can both stay on top of all the household tasks that need taking care of by divvying it up each week in advance, guaranteeing neither of you is stuck on trash duty every week for the rest of your lives.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This household task list is exactly what I needed. I added the tasks as decals. It’s easy to use and clean. It comes with pens and an eraser. It’s a perfect little set to get started with. The magnet makes it so nice to just attach it to the fridge and it’s always there so you’re always reminded to do the tasks.” —Nola

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

6.

A set of personalized “date night dice” to ensure that you don’t get stuck in an “I dunno, what do you wanna do?” rut that pretty much ends the magic of date night before it begins. This lets you customize it with food, activity, and afterward dice based on your specific preferences, so you’re guaranteed to have a good time.


Sugar Blush Studio/Etsy

Sugar Blush Studio is a Colorado-based, woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in bespoke party goods, decor, and gifts.

Promising review: “Love so much! Bought it for a five-year wedding anniversary for my husband. It’s so cute and I anticipate both of us having lots of fun with this, plus quicker decisions because ‘the dice has spoken’ 🤣. Packaged very well and arrived well on time. Quality is beautiful. Thank you so much!” —Jenn

A dishwasher magnet so neither of you ever does that thing where you accidentally put a bunch of dirty dishes away and make the other one go like 🙃🙃🙃 for the rest of the day.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Why didn’t I know about this sooner! I saw this sign on YouTube and immediately ordered it. My husband and I love this and there is no more misunderstanding about whether or not the dish are clean. My only complaint is why didn’t I know about this sign sooner, but better late than never! Also packaging was cute and the seller did provide adhesive sticker as well to prevent the sign from moving. Would definitely buy again if I had another dishwasher! 😁” —Kia

8.

A trio lasagna pan designed so not only will all your edges be crispy, but if you and your partner have drastically different lasagna/bread/dessert preferences, you can keep them separate from each other with this. This is especially great for vegetarian/nonvegetarian couples!


amazon.com

FYI, you can 6,000% use these for brownies, blondies, and bread, too. 

Promising review: “There’s nothing but good coming from this pan! Yummy crunchy edges on every piece! I made three different kinds of lasagna in this pan and all I can say is that there were already plans for the next batch before this one was gone! This pan is heavy duty, has an awesome nonstick coating, and will definitely stand up to much use. The recipe called for spraying the pan with nonstick spray but it was completely unnecessary. Have already suggested this pan to others.” —srenee

9.

A shower curtain with POCKETS, because there is always one partner who hoards bathroom products like it’s their job and another partner who endures tripping on half-empty shampoo bottles for the rest of their lives. Enter this clever solution so you can both shower in peace.


Amazon

Promising review: I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past six years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your ‘stuff,’ this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like four to five of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. I usually change it every six months because it does start getting a little soap scummy on the bottom. The best shower curtain/liner money can buy!” —DAtkins

10.

A set of fast-acting Keurig cleaner pods perfect for any couples with a non-coffee drinkers — if one of you uses the Keurig for tea or cocoa and are tired of it tasting like your partner’s coffee, get yourself some of these! This cleans up all the coffee grounds and residue affecting the taste of all your drinks in a snap.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Love, love, love this. Have used other products but they were not only complicated to use but did not do a great job. This one really works well and is very simple to use! I have used the same metal mug for my morning coffee for about three years now and it got really stained. I used this product one time and the stains were removed. The coffee maker looks like new again. Soooo happy! Going to buy some for my son and will rebuy this for sure! The price is most reasonable also. Win-win.” —pennywrites

11.

A tear-off “What I Love About You Today” pad so you can leave each other little notes in your bags or send them in the mail as a sweet surprise of a reminder for all the reasons you love them (aside from the fact that they are an excellent Netflix copilot, of course).


Amazon

Promising review: “With this pad, it is incredibly easy to be both romantic and efficient. I’ve been using this consistently for a few months now — filling out a sheet when I feel especially enamored with my partner, and sending it to his apartment. This way, he gets a delayed but genuine affirmation of my appreciation for him, which makes him feel appreciated and wooed. It’s a really fun and easy way to do that, because what’s easier than checking off a few boxes? My roommates and I use the Knock Knock pads for a variety of things — especially this one and the one for grocery shopping lists.” —Rachel F. 

Get it from Amazon for $9.99. 

12.

A dual-zone comforter to quite possibly save y’all’s relationship, particularly if you can never agree on where the thermostat should be. One side of this comforter runs cool and the other one runs hot, so you can sleep under whichever side you prefer without waking up when one of you hogs or throws off the covers in the middle of the night.


Amazon

Promising review: “This comforter is what we’ve always needed. My husband and I are always tangled in blankets because I need more but yet they always end up on his side. This comforter provides an all-in-one solution that keeps me warm and him cool and our bedroom looking calm and zen.” —Hannah

Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors and three sizes).

13.

Plus a set of bed bands that will lock your fitted sheets neatly into place, so if your partner’s an ~active sleeper~ you won’t have to untangle yourselves from the sheets every morning.


amazon.com

Promising review: “My husband moves around a lot when he sleeps. Along with a 14″ mattress, 2” memory foam pad, and a quilted mattress pad, we needed something to keep our sheets in place. I tried several other types of straps and clips that all failed or lost their elasticity in a short time. Just short of three years ago I found these Bed Band straps on Amazon and though I would give them a try. They were a little more than I wanted to spend but they got really good reviews. They are still holding everything in place just like the first day I put them on our bed. I remove all our bedding every week to launder and I am careful to make sure that I remove the straps as I am sure that washing and a hot dryer would shorten the life of the straps. I would buy these again and I have recommended Bed Band straps to friends and family.” —Amazon Customer

Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.


14.

*Plus* a plush memory foam mattress topper to quickly transform any old spring mattress into a couple’s oasis — this helps distribute your weight on your mattress more evenly so when one of you rolls over in the middle of the night, the other is less likely to feel the disturbance and wake up.


Amazon

Promising review: “I have lupus and fibromyalgia, and two tumors in my lower back in between two vertebrates. Also nerve damage in my upper back that goes down my arms. This is the best purchase I’ve ever made!! Took me a while to actually purchase it and do research on others like it. When laying on it I don’t get the ‘pulling’ feeling in my lower back or legs. My upper back does not get the pinched-nerve pain. I can barely feel my husband move (the shaking of the bed). I’m so happy I got this. The 3 inches is perfect. If you have a bad back I recommend you getting this. Had a smell to it when you first open it. But it faded as the day went on. Five stars across the board. I got out of bed without that stiff feeling.” —debra

Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in 2- or 3-inch depth and in eight standard bed sizes).


15.

A custom wooden “cassette” playlist you can get etched with a Spotify code that links specifically to a list of songs the two of you have curated, so you can let loose at the end of stressful days by turning on your favorite songs and vibing with each other to your favorite memories.

16.

An insulated soundproofing strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door so you no longer have to fall asleep to sound of your partner yelling at a video game from the other room.


amazon.com

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 two colors).


17.

A weekly meal planner you can use to map out all your joint grocery needs in advance, so you won’t get frustrated when your partner comes home without your beloved favorite yogurts *again*.


Amazon

The list magnetizes to the fridge, and has the meal plan on one side and a perforated “shopping list” you can tear off and take with you on the other side.

Promising review: “I love that I can separate the grocery list from the meals. Previously, I would take my list/meal plan with me to the store, then throw it in my purse or in a bag at the checkout, then proceed to lose it when it came time to figure out what I was making for supper that day. The magnet on the back is great for keeping the list handy on the side of the fridge (even handy enough for my husband to add groceries when he uses the last of something!).” —Jackiet

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

18.

A one-year couples journal full of interesting prompts and questions that prove there’s soooo much more weird and interesting stuff to learn about each other, making you find little reasons to fall in love all over again.


Callisto Media

Each book has questions that run the gamut from “What’s been one of the most transformative or meaningful moments you’ve experienced with me since we’ve been together?” to  “What animal do you think embodies your personality the most, and why? What about mine?” 

Get it from Amazon for $10.03 or Bookshop for $13.79 (to support local bookstores).

19.

A set of Bluetooth-connected long-distance touch bracelets you can pair whenever you’re apart so that when one of you is thinking of the other, you can tap the bracelet, and the corresponding one will vibrate and light up in the color of your choice 🌈.


Amazon

So basically, you can set up little codes for yourself — maybe blue is “I miss you,” pink is “call me when you get a chance,” purple is “I love you.”

Promising review: “My love is being deployed across seas to Kuwait for the Army and we both know that there aren’t going to be too many times where we are able to chat on the phone or Skype/FaceTime each other with the time change and her schedule over there. I wanted to find something that would keep us close even though we are going to be so far away. These are so awesome. The touches are vibrant and every time I receive one from her, a huge smile comes across my face. It’s a simple yet amazing way to let your significant other know that you’re thinking about them. You don’t need Wi-Fi, just a Bluetooth connection to your phone. Thank you, Bond, for keeping us close. PS: Our 15-month-old loves feeling the touches and loves sending his mom touches as well.” —Amazon Customer

A Squatty Potty to help you both ~go~ a little faster and prevent any irritation over waiting for each other to finish in the bathroom. The placement helps align your colon to make the process a whole lot easier and faster — like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! — so you don’t end up watching all of TikTok while you’re waiting yourself out.


Amazon

Psst — a lot of reviewers with chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal issues that get them ~backed up~ swear by this!

Promising review: “This thing provided relief INSTANTLY! I have to take pain meds for severe back problems, which means I get blocked easily…even if I am on a liquid diet. The dreaded 24-hour prep process for colonoscopies takes 48-hours and twice the prep for me and there may still be stuff left over because my body hates pooping these days. It normally takes an hour or more before I just have to give up and use a suppository or enema. I take massive amounts of chewable gummy fiber, eat enough vegetables for my entire family, and drink water as if I were an ocean creature…at least 8–10 glasses a day (usually more…much more). If I drink coffee, I have to pee but that’s about it. And I pee a lot with all that water. This stool is the FIRST thing that made this process easier. It arrived in its own box. I thought…it must be special. I unwrapped its plastic and placed it in its new glorious position. Then I decided, ‘What the heck, let’s give it a go!’ AND I DID! No struggling. No squirming. No straining. No squeezing. No grimacing. No difficulty. Just GO! THANK YOU, GOD!” —NoneYa

Plus a bottle of odor-banishing Poo-Pourri spray, so neither of you ever has to come out of the bathroom and be all, “Uh, maybe give it a minute.”

Promising review: “We love everything about this! It works great and smells great, too. We just ordered more for our other bathrooms.” —AH

Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in nine sizes and 19 scents).

22.

A calendar wall decal so you can remind each other about any joint events or appointments coming up, so nobody’s day is inconvenienced by a surprise when things pop out of the scheduling ether.


Amazon

Promising review: “I put them on the fridge, one for my husband and one for me. It keeps us in line! I like how you can customize it because of dry erase.” —Zulu Alpha

Get it from Amazon for $11.80.

23.

A Pet House candle that was designed to help eliminate pet odors but also works *wonders* eliminating other odors like smoke and strong cooking smells, so if your partner’s hobbies include smoking or “let’s just put 10 cloves of garlic in it and see what happens,” you won’t have to put up with lingering smells.


Amazon

Promising review: “This product really works. In fact it is the only air freshener product I have tried that actually does. We live in interior Alaska where seven months of the year temperatures are such that opening windows to air out a house is not a viable option. This takes out all types of smells: cat litter box, cooking, wood smoke from the wood stove. And so many fragrances to choose from.” —John B.

Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 16 scents).

24.

A blank acrylic dry-erase board you can install in the kitchen or by the front door so you can leave each other little notes saying where you are (or just some sweet little love notes to make each other smile on the way out the door!).


1801 & Co/Etsy

1801 & Co. is a Minnesota-based, family-owned 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 that does not LOOK like office in the bedroom is challenging, but this acrylic board is PERFECT. The black pen that comes with it has very nice fine tip and erases without a trace.” —Dawn Powell

Get it from 1801 & Co. on Etsy for $16.06+ (originally $22.95+; available in multiple thicknesses and sizes as well as four hardware colors).

A collection of “Letters To Open When,” so you can be there with your each other in spirit even in times when you can’t be there to give each other a much-needed pep talk, kick in the pants, or reminder of your love in person.


Chronicle Books

There are 12 prompts that include things like “Open when you feel lonely or lost” and “Open when you’re looking for inspiration.”

Get it from Amazon for $12.16 or Bookshop (to support local bookstores) for $13.75.

A splurge-worthy, entirely noiseproof pair of AirPods Pro perfect for any couples who are working from home in the same space — as much as you love your partner, it is v annoying to feel like you’re in twice as many Zoom meetings when you’re half-attending their noisy ones from down the hall. Once you pop these babies in it’s like the rest of the world doesn’t exist.


Amazon

I have a pair of these, and they’re not playing around. Once they’re securely in your ear, you can toggle the headphones between noise cancelling and regular sound, depending on your situation. I’ve been working from home, and the noise cancelling is so effective that I can work next to a window where my neighbor is doing heavy construction and I don’t hear anything louder than a faint buzzing. It’s quieter than if I’d just plugged my ears with my own fingers. I’m also a runner, and these don’t budge when you’re sweating, which is nice. It’s also handy that these toggle out of noise-cancellation mode, because I feel better being able to hear traffic and other people around me when I’m out and about. The TL;DR is I love these so much I have zero interest in owning another pair of headphones for as long as I live.

Promising review: “Great earbuds! The integration with my iPhone and Apple Watch makes it well worth the investment. Super easy to use, and so far the battery life has been solid. Noise cancellation is top notch. Love the ability to change from transparent mode and noise cancellation with a touch and hold of either earbud, instead of having to take the earbuds out every time someone wants to chat. Audio quality is very good, but not ‘blow you away’ spectacular. This is coming from someone who uses Shure 846 earphones every week, so maybe I’m a bit spoiled on audio quality.” —Jordan Whitfield

A cooling, memory foam contoured sleep mask for whenever one of you wants to 😴 and the other one is like, “But I have to find out who murdered the nondescript twentysomething woman on the cover of this thriller with the word ‘girl’ in the title!!” Now you can *both* spend the night as you please.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I don’t require complete darkness when I sleep, so I hadn’t thought I’d ever want a sleep mask. Then 2020 happened! The pandemic and its associated anxiety have messed up my sleep in a major way. I often get to sleep just fine but wake up later unable to get back to sleep. I’ve decreased caffeine, established a regular bedtime, avoided screens hours before bed, and tried melatonin. I guess it’s all mental for me, but when I wake up like that, heart racing and sweaty, and I can’t see anything — no clocks or moonlight, no dozing form of my beloved next to me, no cat demon staring at the foot of the bed — I tend to settle down easier. It’s like wearing the mask reminds me I’m supposed to shut my eyes and sleep. And I usually do, right until the alarm goes off. I like the molded cups around the eyes. A flat mask would make me feel like I’m rubbing off all my eye cream and lash serum through the night. I have not washed this mask yet, but I think it’ll hold up just fine gently hand-washing it. The adjustable band is soft and doesn’t slip out of place. If you’re on the fence about trying a sleep mask, you might as well get a really nice one! Give this a try, especially if you have anxiety like I described.” —Anna

An affordable sunrise alarm clock, because nothing will put more strain on a relationship than the one chaos partner who sets seven! different! snooze alarms!! in the morning. This will help ease them into waking up by gradually lighting up the room in the minutes leading up to the alarm, making both of you less tempted to slam the “snooze” button and drive the other one up the wall.


Amazon

Promising review: “I haven’t had an alarm clock in my bedroom for over four years because I can’t stand how bright the lights are. I was hesitant to buy another alarm clock, but wanted to give the sunrise feature a try. I love it! Firstly, I’m glad I didn’t pay for the expensive version, because this is exactly what I wanted. I can completely dim the clock’s light while I sleep, so I’m not bothered by the illuminated clock at night. I then set the sunrise feature to begin 30 minutes before wake-up and set the alarm to the bird chirping/nature sounds. It has completely changed the way I sleep and wake up and begin the day. The sunrise feature slowly wakes me up, and the nature sounds for the alarm are soothing and pleasant instead of the usual jarring blare of an alarm clock. Very happy with this purchase! Would recommend.” —Tara

A pocket-sized Tile Mate for the partner who is constantly losing not only their stuff, but *yours* — these can easily attach to a set of keys, a purse, or even your pet and easily find them when they’re lost.


Tile

All you have to do is connect the Tile Mate to the Tile app on their phone, and if you misplace something, the app will find it in a snap (and even make the Tile Mate “ring” so you’ll be able to hear it under the bed where the cat has hidden it — big mood).

Promising review: “My boyfriend ‘loses’ his keys, wallet, and phone at least three times every single day. I wish I was exaggerating. I put ‘loses’ in quotation marks because if I have to come to his aid, I usually find the thing hidden in plain sight within five seconds. I love the man, but I was over it. So I ordered these. The wallet size is super thin, similar to a credit card so it’ll fit in the slots. The keychain is small enough that it’s not bothersome. The app is easy to set up and use, and he can register me as a user too. The alarms are super loud so there’s no doubt about the direction in which the thing is hidden, and you can push a spot on the Tiles to reverse-search for your phone, too! So these two items covered all three of the commonly misplaced items (as long as one of the items was in his hands). We haven’t had to use them for outside of the house purposes yet, but I’m sure it’ll be just as helpful with the app if that time should come.” —Carley

The Adventure Challenge, a little book full of a ton of adventures you can go on with your partner to shake up your usual routine. Each of the unique 50 challenges are designed for couples from the newly dating to the long term, and ranges between $0 and $50 in budget. Afterward you can put in a photo and a blurb about the date as a keepsake ❤️.


The Adventure Challenge

Promising review (couples edition): “We have done about six of the dates so far. We have laughed harder than we have in a long time. I have been touched by the thought that went into each of the dates. It is clear that they are not just thrown together, there is a purpose behind each of the ‘rules’ of the date. I would say if I had made up the dates my husband would have balked, so it helps to have it be from a third party with the requirement to commit. There has not been a date so far that we haven’t thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from. My husband LOVES it and has wanted to do several dates in a weekend (our original goal was to do one a week). For perspective we are in our 40s and have been married for 22 years. It has been a bit reminiscent of our early dating years and reminded us to be more adventurous. So fun to shake it up! The only way you get the benefit is if you fully commit and go for it. Break out of your self-made boundaries! You strengthen your bond by shared experiences that invoke emotion: laughter, uncertainty, vulnerability in trying new things.” —Terrell

A privacy sign meant for offices that can actually be an effective (and cheeky) way to let your partner know if you need quiet *or* let them know you’re out of the apartment so they safely can go ham belting show tunes until you get back.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I work from home, and if you do too you may also encounter this odd scenario: Merely closing the door to one’s office is not actually a reliable method to let others know you are working. I can’t say enough good things about this sign. It is a far better design and quality than expected at this price point. The sign is a dial-style, and really sturdy. The dial even has a click-in-place feature to prevent your status from accidentally moving when the door swings shut. Gone are the days of people thinking you’re available when you’re not! Well, at least you have forewarned them! I am extremely happy with the sign, and can recommend it to anyone who might need a little extra assistance in deterring work interruptions!” —Conscious Consumer

Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

A set of stackable fridge drawers so you can reach an agreement on how the fridge should be organized instead of letting it breed the kind of chaos that means you forget to eat half the product you bought last week.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Excellent organization system! I once opened the fridge often, always looking for something I hadn’t seen the last time I checked. The thing is — I often found something new because it just wasn’t organized in a functional way. Now, with this system, I find what I’m looking for the first time. And when a bin is empty, I know I need to buy more of that product and just ask my smarthome to add that item to my shopping list. Very grateful for the sense of calm and control that this fridge organization system has given me, and for all of the food that is no longer going bad in the back of the fridge!” —Chelsea T.

Plus a set of fully customizable waterproof stickers designed for fridge use to neatly organize all your fridge’s contents — and, perhaps more importantly, to label certain drawers or shelves with your name so your partner knows that these are not “share” foods. (Sorry not sorry about my collection of fridge Oreos.)
