Sometimes you stumble across a product that makes you think, "Why didn't I think of that?!" And in my line of work, that happens a lot. These ten goodies (all under $25, by the way) will save you time, encourage you to stay organized, ramp up your beauty routine, and make everyday life a little more fun. I mean, who wouldn't love a whale-shaped tea infuser?

Read on for some of the best cult-favorite finds at HSN under $25. But don't say I didn't warn you: You may be tempted to hit "add to cart" on just about everything.

1. Get rid of the excuse, "I don't know how to fold"

Over 700 HSN shoppers have flipped for the FlipFold Original Folding Boards and given the set a five-star rating. Keep one in your laundry room and one in your closet to help you execute perfect piles and prevent the dreaded garment topple of off-kilter tees and sweaters. Better yet, keep one for yourself and give one to your favorite college student so she doesn't look like she just rolled out of bed (although she probably did).

One happy customer reports, "Makes folding laundry fun. Clothes are uniform in size versus haphazard." And another shares, "My two grown sons love this and now have their clothes organized in their drawers given the fact they fold uniformly. They find it easy to fold their clothes straight from the dryer so their clothes have fewer wrinkles."

This tool will help you save space, maintain a clean looking closet and take some of the pain out of a seemingly endless chore.

2. For brows that wow

Beloved beauty brand Benefit is well known for products that help highlight the eye area. Along with luxe-looking lashes, they've also got you covered in the brow department. With the recent trend of fuller brows and with the understanding that some of us may still be recovering from over-plucking done in the early aughts, this Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel offers an easy fix.

The gel is infused with tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and existing hairs to create a fuller appearance and can be layered for extra intensity. Choose from four shades to find the one that suits you and go from brow to wow in an instant. This set comes with one full-size tube and one travel-size brow gel so you'll never find yourself without a fix.

3. Get your cords under control

Whether you are looking to tidy up your nightstand or your desk, this simple stand will be your secret weapon. The Aduro 3-in-1 Phone Stand has a slot for your Apple Watch, iPhone and Airpods so you have a convenient spot to charge all of your devices and prevent the mess of cords we all know much too well. Plus, you can use it as a mini monitor to view incoming messages while you work (removing the need to pull a device out of your pocket or purse). That may sound like an easy enough task, but once you see how much time you'll save with a glance rather than stopping mid-project to check your alerts, you'll be a convert. I certainly was.

One clutter-free customer says, "Works great for keeping the cords together and not all over the place. Everything fits on the stand just fine, even with my Popsocket on the back of my phone." Choose from gold or rose gold and stand up against the cable tangle.

4. Go ahead, play with your food

If you've ever dreamed of finding the best way to shred your famous pulled pork or transfer a hefty roast with ease, get ready for this: These Curtis Stone Meat Shredding Bear Claws are here to give you a hand (ha!). They'll protect your paws from getting too close to the hot meat while spearing or shredding your creation without much extra effort.

One five-star reviewer says, "These are very well made!! I really use them more than I thought I would." Another suggests getting these in preparation for the holidays: "I've always struggled to remove large roasts or a turkey from the oven. These were perfect this Thanksgiving! I was surprised at the sturdy quality of these bear claws. This item is a must-have."

5. Maximize your moisturizer

This beauty booster will not only help you apply your favorite moisturizer and serum, but it will also ensure that a bottle lasts as long as possible and gives you maximum results. When you apply creams and oils using your hands, the solution can absorb there before all of it gets to your face. So, while your hands may look youthful as ever, this Vanity Planet Outlines Serum Booster Tool will help get your face to match.

You can also use it to apply cleanser to your face. Move the massage head in a circular, upward motion for best results. One customer shares, "I'm so glad I found this tool to add to my collection of pampering tools. This feels like it really helps with my moisturizer and makes my face feel so smooth. It feels like a mini massager on my face. I love it!" And this user seals the deal, saying, "This little guy has been a game changer. I was honestly skeptical that it would be any better than using my fingers to apply my serums. I was wrong. After just a week I started to notice a difference in the appearance of my skin, texture and fine lines. I would highly recommend this to anyone of any age!"

6. Ensure you've always got power

You know how frustrating it can be when your remote dies at the exact moment you want to turn on your favorite show? And it becomes doubly frustrating when you can't find a working battery anywhere in the house. Yeah, we've all been there. This Battery Pro Organizer and Tester should help change all that. First, you'll know right where to look when you find yourself in need of power. And then if you're not sure if the battery is dead or the item you're powering up is faulty, use the attached tester to easily find the answer.

Choose from five case colors to hold up to 100 batteries. The package even comes with wall anchors and screws so you can hang it for ultra-easy access. Power on!

7. Have a whale of a time with your tea

Fill the whale's body with your favorite tea leaves and drop it into a mug of hot water. The silicone is heat-safe, so the little guy will be just fine no matter how scalding you like your brew. When you're done steeping, simply pull up on the spray of "water" coming from his spout to free Willy (sorry, I had to) and get to enjoying your cuppa.

This Fred and Friends Brew Whale Tea Infuser will make overnight guests giggle and give you a jolt of joy when you may also be in search of a jolt of caffeine.

8. Flaunt flawless skin

This discrete precision hair removal tool works wonders on the upper lip, chin and cheeks. It's super gentle (I use it regularly and get no irritation as I have from other products) and has a light to illuminate every strand you're looking to shear. Turn it on, set it flat against your skin, and move it around in a circular motion. Empty the mini canister and you'll be amazed. Plus, it helps create a super smooth canvas for your makeup routine and can minimize caking.

There's also a Flawless Touch for brows, with a more tapered head that you can use to virtually erase all unwanted hair between and surrounding your brows. A happy customer sums it up nicely: "No pain, no pull, no cuts."

9. Take care of wintertime beauty woes

If the whipping winds of winter led to some seriously chapped lips, this tool is for you. The BlushLips double-sided exfoliating lip brush is made of textured silicone (one side is finer than the other) to help slough away dead skin and leave behind smooth, kissable lips.

One user shares that it's a simple concept that leads to dramatic results: "Wintertime is usually troublesome for my lips. They would peel and sometimes bleed despite using top of the line moisturizers. I use this once a day after brushing my teeth and have seen a great improvement in the skin integrity of my lips. It helps to make the moisturizers I use more effective."

10. Cool down and light up

Most indoor spaces have fans and lighting to keep them comfortable and illuminated, so why not bring those features to the outdoors? Whether you use this 2-in-1 light and fan in a tent while camping or in the garage as you tinker, it's sure to do the trick. And if you don't want both features on at the same time, they can be used independently as well.

This LED fan light has a collapsible hanging hook and a swivel head so you can light up and cool down at any angle you please. This cool tool will certainly come in handy as the weather starts to heat up.
