This LED Alarm Clock is So Easy to Read
This LED alarm clock is a fab invention – just plug in your phone with the USB cord and the time is displayed in extra large numbers that’s easy to see at a glance. I use my phone as an alarm clock every day, but have trouble seeing it in the dark. It’d be so much easier to just look over to my nightstand and see huge numbers glowing!
These Rubber Coated Hangers Won’t Let Clothes Slip
Before these hangers, I spent a lot of time picking clothes up off my closet floor after they gently slid off the slippy hangers I used to have. These rubber-coated hangers are pretty much my dream come true – they’ll grip onto your clothes so they won’t slide around or off the hanger, which is so annoying. They’re great for silky blouses and jeans alike, since both the arms and the cross bar is rubberized. Reviewers love them too – they have a perfect 5-star rating from over 1,000 reviews!

I’m Your Biggest Fan
I want to call every product on this list “my favorite,” but you wouldn’t believe me, would you? But this one is so, so close to one of the best things I’ve ever bought on Amazon. I’ve tried a lot of mini handheld fans (hey, I live in Florida, give me a break), but they ultimately let me down. This one has three powerful speeds, a folding design and crazy-long battery life.
This Neck Cooling Towel for Hot Sweaty Workouts
Whether I’m doing yoga or going for a run, I always cool off with this neck cooling towel. Not only does this towel cool you down when you wear it around your neck, but it also has UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun when doing an outdoor workout.

Prevent Water Marks With This Shower Squeegee
Growing up, my mom always told me to squeegee the glass shower doors every time I was finished showering, but I never understood why until I was an adult. It helps prevent hard water spots and soap scum, which keeps your shower looking clean as heck. You can also use it for wall tiles, mirrors, even your car windshield.
Storage Solutions for Small Spaces
Short on space, but tired of sitting down on the toilet only to realize the toilet paper is out? (Man, I hate with that happens.) You can stuff this narrow storage cabinet just about anywhere and hide several rolls of TP behind the door while using the built-in dispenser for your current roll. I like the little shelf on top, which looks like the perfect place to prop up your smartphone to watch TikTok videos in the john.
Find More Space In Your Closet With These Multi-Layer Hangers
I never really know what to do with pants. Do they go in a dresser drawer? Do I have to find hangers for every pair of pants I own? It’s an impossible conundrum. Until now. These multi-layered hangers let you hang multiple pairs of pants vertically so that you can see each one. They’re easy to get to, they take up less space, and you don’t end up with wrinkles. Magic.

No more combing through your fridge trying to find your perfect snack: it’s all right there.
Spice Girls, Unite
This spice rack organizer is one of the best Amazon purchases I’ve ever made. Yes, it takes up some cabinet space, but spices were taking up my cabinet space anyway — at least now in an organized fashion. With room for 30 spice jars, you’ll always know your coriander from your cumin. Don’t trust my review? Trust this one: “I previously had a lazy Susan-type spice holder and although I knew it took up room, never replaced it. This three-tier rack is perfect!”

Ever thought about growing your own avocado tree? No? Well, do it anyway with this kit. It’s basically foolproof, as you only need to change the water once every two weeks. If you can’t handle that, you’ve got way bigger problems than a lack of avocado trees in your yard.
Get Kids In The Swing of Things
Why should adults have all the fun? Wait, I know, it’s because we pay all the bills, work stressful jobs, and deserve to have a little fun.

It comes in a variety of fun colors for less than 40 bucks and has a host of cool features including a pocket and inflatable pillow.

These Clorox Disinfecting Heads are the Most Hygienic Way to Clean Your Toilet
I trust Clorox for their bathroom cleaning and disinfecting products because I know I’m guaranteed a high level of sanitization. Simply add the refill to the wand then swish and scrub, and the job is done. You then flush the refill so you don’t have to touch a thing.
Extend Your Bedside Table With This Caddy
I’ll be honest: I felt a little silly buying one of these. Actually, no, scratch that. I felt a little grandmotherly buying one of these.

This caddy freed up some of my table space while keeping things like the remote and my Kindle within arm’s reach.

If you want to soothe a larger area of the body, it’s handy to use a Large Heating Pad that covers more surface area. This pad measures 12 by 24 inches, with three heat settings and a soft, microfiber cover.
Steel Yourself For This One
Love stainless steel appliances but hate fingerprints and splatters on said stainless steel appliances. It’s a true love-hate relationship here. Thankfully, Weiman’s stainless steel cleaner and polish work wonders. I especially love the wipes for convenience and always have a tub of them under my kitchen sink. If only I could keep people from touching the appliances at all. That won’t work, will it?
A Hanging Organizer That Adds Shelves To Your Closet
With six shelves and five drawers, this hanging organizer is a must-have if you need a little extra storage space in your closet. It’s great for underwear — and since it can hold up to 30 pounds, you can even put shoes on it if you need. The fabric is tear-resistant, and reviewers loved how it was “easy to assemble.”
A Video Doorbell for Less

It also supports cloud storage services.

No money for new furniture? No problem. These reversible microfiber slipcovers will extend the life of your sofa as you attempt to protect it for kids, dogs, and maybe husbands.

It’s also a great buy at just $29.
Shower Yourself With Simplicity
Almost 60,000 reviewers can’t be wrong about this heavy-duty plastic shower curtain. And, I know what you’re going to say, O.K.? It’s not the most beautiful shower curtain you’ve ever seen. Fine. But, it is mold-resistant thick and stays in place thanks to the stone used as weights on the bottom so you’re not getting water on the floor or having a curtain blow in on you while you’re trying to shower. It’s $10 so give it a try!
Pull The Rug Out From Under You
Nearly 35,000 people have reviewed these rugs and the results are in: They’re a big hit. Made of luxury chenille, quick-drying and completely machine washable, these rugs come in every color under the sun, which can sometimes be a challenge when you’re trying to match curtains or other decor. One reviewer hailed, “This one is great quality for the price.”
This Heating Wrap You Can Wrap Around Your Arm or Leg
Heating pads provide soothing relief to sore muscles, but they’re not always convenient to use on arms or legs. That’s why this Heating Wrap is a smart solution! It has a long, slim design that can be wrapped where you need it, with elastic ends to hold it in place.
This Lil’ Fan That’s More Stylish Than The Rest
Put this fan on your bedroom nightstand for a constant, cooling breeze all night long. It comes in a variety of colors to match any style — and the wind speed is even adjustable for those extra-hot evenings. Plus, some reviewers even wrote about how it produces a pleasant white noise that helps them fall asleep.
Here’s the thing about a hand truck, which I prefer to call a “dolly” because it’s just funny: You don’t know how much you need one until you have one, and then you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one. The personal dolly can hold up to 200 pounds, has beefy wheels, and folds compactly when not in use. This is your perfect companion for gardening projects and even hauling heavy stuff into your house.
Throw Pillows Aren’t Just For Indoors
Ask anybody who knows me and they’ll tell you I have a real obsession with throw pillows. I’ve yet to buy any for outdoors, but that might change with this two-piece throw pillow set. I love these in teal, violet, or orange, but they come in a host of other colors, too, from beige to navy. Made of light, breathable material, they’re both water-resistant and dust-proof so you can use them around the pool or garden with no issue.

You Must, You Must, You Must Remove The Rust
Hard water or rust stains got you down? We’ve all been there. The rust stain remover from Iron Out will set you straight. It looks like it’s in a spray bottle (and it is), but what you get is actually a thicker gel that clings to stains to dissolve them away. This product is especially useful on vertical and hard-to-reach surfaces like showers, sinks, tubs, and toilets above the waterline.
A Window Fan That Gets The Job Done
