The first product is the Aqueduck Faucet Extender. This nifty little gadget helps make the water from your faucet reachable. All you do is place it on your faucet. It helps me reach the water with my mouth to wash it out after brushing my teeth.
Next up is the one touch electric can opener. Honestly, I think every person should own one of these. Place it on a can and press the button. It's as easy as that to open any can in your cupboard. I don't know what I would do without it!
This next one is probably my favorite. They're called Cotton Snaps. They're basically an eyewear accessory but better. But why would I put these as one of my favorite gadgets? Because there's a hidden gem in the design of these eyewear retainers. The two ends join together by small powerful magnets. I use these magnets to help pick up my keys or anything magnetic I drop. I've dropped my keys in some tough spots but thankfully I had my cotton snaps on me. Plus they're super stylish!
The next product is another magnetic one. It's a phone mount for your car. Just stick the thin metal plate on your phone and stick the magnetic base on your dashboard. You have an easy to use phone mount and you don't have to mess with buttons or clamps. As a quad this thing is great. And if you have those Cotton Snaps you can use those to grab your phone if you drop it, but only if the metal plate is facing upward. Classic butter side up of the dropped toast dilemma.
Last but not least is the Dycem non-slip cone. If you were ever in rehab and worked with an OT you've probably heard of Dycem. It's a non-slip material that has a plethora of uses. I didn't know it came in a cone shape, but I'm glad I found it. Even with no hand function, I'm able to open any twist-off top using this cone. Even those stubborn spaghetti sauce jars! It also works well for any twist off bottle caps. No more using your teeth
Those are a few products and gadgets that make my life easier. All under $20 too! I have given you some links to examples of these products, but there are tons of other helpful, affordable products out there that can help solve a problem you have. You just have to hunt for it.
