The freezer is the under-hyped miracle worker of the kitchen, allowing you to preserve foods, save money, and plan ahead so that when life gets hectic, you still have a home-cooked meal on hand to heat and eat in a matter of minutes.

Of course, your freezer is only as good as the stuff that's in it. And that stuff is only as good as the stuff it's in. Are you following? We're saying the containers for all your frozen leftovers and made-in-advance meals are super important.

Joy Con Classic 

We're all nostalgic for the simple days of our childhoods, when we could sit on the floor of our living rooms and spend entire days playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on our original Nintendo system.  Now that we're all adults, though, we're both not able and not willing to indulge in that. Why?  Because adult gamers are looked down as childish.  And true, there's not a lot that sounds appealing about a 37-year-old man who devotes weekend hours to his X-Box, but hold up.  Do you play Candy Crush on your phone on the subway?  Gurl, you a gamer too. Let's all reserve the judgement about how we should be spending our free time as adults and acknowledge that zoning out is a key component of developing the ability to resist the urge to strangle everyone you see at work, on your commute, in the grocery store, etc.  The specific type of zoning out you get while playing mindless video games is especially sweet.  Let's all buy the Colorware Joy Con Classic ($199)—which pairs with Nintendo Switch—and play classic games on a classic controller. The clicking even sounds the same. Relaxxxxxxxxxxing.

Ice Pop Socks

Socks aren't really necessary in the summer, unless you're a goddamned business person, you probably have to wear business-y outfits.  You know: close-toed shoes, long wool pants, and the like.  

So, if you're so grown-up that the only fun or personality you can inject into your office daily life is through your socks, but your soul isn't COMPLETELY dead to the point where you only wear solids in neutral colors, these Ice Pop Socks ($14, DOIY Design) are for you.  You can show them to all of your equally-depressed co-workers while everyone else is enjoying a day at the beach.
