I know I like to feature products or services that can sometimes seem to serve a very niche purpose (measuring pen, anyone?) but today I wanted to do something a little different. For this week’s Fantastic Find I rounded up a few items that are small enough to throw in your bag, cool enough that you’ll be bragging to your friends about how useful they are, and stylish enough that you won’t mind upgrading your other staples. Let’s open up our bag now, shall we?

Bright hues, metallic colors, marbled designs… who knew there could be such endless possibilities for lint rollers?! (Image credit: F’lint)

Flint Lint Roller

Getting caught without a lint roller is never fun — especially if you’re the type of person who spends a fair amount of time around pet hair. A colleague recommended Flint to me and now I don’t think I’ll ever go back to those normal lint rollers you pick up last minute in line at the drugstore. Flint has reinvented the lint roller to make it tiny, retractable, refillable, and totally fun. With colorful, patterned, even metallic cases, I’m actually getting excited about owning a lint roller.

Whoosh! Screen Cleaner

For me, ignorance is bliss when it comes to germs. You can’t see them, so they aren’t there, right? Unfortunately we all know this isn’t the case, so when a company like Whoosh comes along and says things like “your phone is 10 times dirtier than a public toilet seat,” I start listening. Since our mobile devices are basically an extension of our arms these days, it only makes sense to keep them clean. Whoosh’s Screen Shine wipes and spray are compact, powerful, and non-toxic. You can clean, polish, and protect the screens of all of your electronic devices, and keep them fingerprint and streak-free.

Ye!! Power Bank

Alright, power banks are nothing new. If you’re anything like me, finding yourself with a phone at 10% battery occurs fairly often — and is fairly annoying. Portable power banks came around a few years back and really saved the day for forgetful folks like me. That said, this Ye!! (pronounced yel) Energy Slim Power Bank is my favorite one out there. It’s sleek, slim, powerful, and fun. Just shake it to see its power level and watch the buttons light up. It’s super easy to use… now I just have to remember to keep it charged up!
