Be honest with yourself, you are constantly seeing nifty products on YouTube and TikTok videos and wondering where you can find them. It’s a story as old as time itself, as long as we assume the beginning of time was in, like, 2003.
It doesn’t have to be this way. All you need to do is a little sleuthing, and you’ll quickly figure out that most of this stuff is sold on Amazon. It’s all about the search terms you use, and luckily for everyone, I am the queen of figuring out exactly the right keyword combinations!
Keep reading to see all the things my crafty little brain was able to suss out from the search bar!

Create fully sealed baggies from other baggies, or however the heck you want to do it. One thing is for sure: these mini bag sealers come in handy more than I care to admit. They reseal almost any thin plastic bag, as well as chip bags — which I guess those are plastic too, I don’t know, they’re kind of like foil-rich plastic? All I know is our snacks are lasting a lot longer around my house, I’m no longer running to the store at midnight for chips, and we now reuse our plastic bags instead of throwing them away. Michael Scott would call this a “win-win-win”.
How do you feel about s’mores? I am obsessed, and I don’t really know why. They’re just marshmallows and chocolate, but damn, they’re SO good. Anyway, I saw this thing on some TikTok video trend thing and had to pause the video to ask myself WTF WHERE DO I FIND THIS? I found it, I love it, and now I eat s’mores in the winter.
The main problem with inflatable mattresses is the damn setup process. Some need an independent inflator to do the job right, and that’s an extra purchase right there. A good air mattress should have its own inflation method, and it should also be easy to set up and put away. This one from Ivation checks all the boxes, plus it seems to be the camping mattress of choice for YouTube glampers.
Not to be overshadowed by sticky paper lint rollers, this waste-free one from ChomChom grabs and traps pet fur quicker and easier. Lint rollers are one of those things that generates more trash than it’s worth, and I’m not down for that. I saw some influencers on TikTok using this bad larry, and I absolutely had to have it. So I found one, and it’s amazing. It uses friction instead of glue to grab the hair and lint, pretty cool.
People used to spend their whole lives trying to synthesize gold, doing all sorts of misguided experiments without ever yielding any results. We called these people alchemists. While Crazy Keiki Cloning Paste won’t generate gold, it definitely makes it possible to use magic on your orchid plants to produce more flowers. Basically, what I’m trying to say is you’re going to be a plant alchemist. Anyway, that’s what some YouTuber said in a video I saw.
No one is sitting at a desk anymore. Most of us are sitting at home, on the couch, doing our work in what we think is absolute comfort. The problem is sitting like a potato all day is actually bad for your body. Be like the influencers of the modern internet era, and start using a standing desk to correct your posture. With this awesome desk add-on from FLEXISPOT, you can convert any desk to a standing desk for just about $100.
I saw someone picking up some crazy liquid spills with these dishcloths, and I had to have them. Be like me: stop using wasteful paper towels, grab these 10 ultra-absorbent dishcloths, and quickly forget about all your spills without producing any garbage. They also work great for scrubbing dishes — they are dishtowels after all.
Getting power next to your bed can be an issue, especially if you’re part of a couple and one of you gets the side without an electrical outlet. Fix the issue at hand, like those YouTubers I saw did, by using this magical Macally Table Lamp. It has a bunch of USB ports and a long power cable, putting light and power within your reach. Every vlogger has one of these things, just have a look in the background of their videos.
Your sponges get gross, that’s the inherent nature of rubbing an absorbant material against dirty dishes all day long. They don’t, however, only have to last a few days. This soap pump from Aeakey also doubles as a resting area for sponges currently in rotation, keeping them useful for longer periods of time.
Here’s another one I saw in a movie, and that movie was indeed Cars. I watched it with my nephew, but honestly, it was a good. After, I was wondering if anyone was selling sun visors in the shape of the car’s eyes, because obviously I needed that — and of course, some absolute madman was. Do you live somewhere hot? Have some fun with these!
TikTok turned me on to these miracle yoga pants that make my butt look spectacular. Like, my posterior is literally a spectacle with these on. I look super hot at the gym. My husband has called my doctors to see if I had a secret Brazilian butt lift performed. Owning these bad boys has been life-changing.
I bet you use your phone as an alarm clock. While that may seem like the logical choice, what happens if your phone is low on battery and dies during the night? Or, what if you leave your phone at a friend’s house? C’mon, man. I think it’s stupid to not have a standalone clock for your alarm, situated all nice next to your bed. Plugged into a wall. Pick up this sleek number I saw in some YouTuber’s viral product breakdown and stay classy.
You Need This Dry Food Dispenser That You’ve Seen In The Holiday Inn Breakfast Room Since You Were Born
There you are, at the grocery store, looking at the cereals like a small child: eyes wide, jaw dropped, sugar cravings intensifying. It doesn’t have to be a struggle, all you have to do is own one of these dry food dispensers and buy TWO kinds of cereal at the same time. Cap’n Crunch and Cookie Crisp? Idk. Just rip open the bags and pour the contents into their respective side of the dispenser and live your best life.
Trying to deal with nosey neighbors but not sure how to? A quick fix is getting yourself a good window laminate that allows light in while, at the same time keeping the goings-on inside your house completely private. This one from Rabbitgoo looks like stained glass, which is awesome.
As far as beauty products go, there’s nothing worse than a bulky, chalky foundation. Then, what happens if you get it wet? Well, lucky for you, I watch every beauty YouTuber and saw this foundation from L’Oreal that will change the game for good. It comes in 15 shades, so there’s probably a match for your skin.
This one is for me. Eva, get your nephew this $25 digital camera I saw on a YouTube review channel.
Okay, hear me out: don’t you think it’s weird we haven’t developed a good way to store toothbrushes? They either go in a cup, which collects rancid liquid at the bottom over time; or they go on a rack, which puts the bristles in contact with a hard-to-clean surface. It’s 2021, we have robot police dogs — why can’t we figure out a smart way to store the only hygiene tool we use consistently twice a day? Well, this all-in-one brush station comes awfully close. All the surfaces are easy to clean, and it has storage for everything. Also, some TikTokers are going off about them — so, did I really have a choice? I am a millennial, after all.
As you can tell, I’m very serious about removing pet hair. As much as I love my fluffy children, I really dislike their fur on my clothes. I also don’t necessarily like the lint rollers that have tons of sticky tape (pre-garbage) — which is exactly why I love this thing. It removes the lint and fur, and that’s it — you just empty the reservoir and reuse it. I found this bad boy on Instagram, in case you were wondering.
Now, for the rest of the house, you’ll need something with more power. You’ll need a vacuum. This vacuum, in fact. The Crosswave Pet Pro focuses on handling one of the hardest parts of living with pets (accidents), and lets you enjoy more of the good parts (literally everything else). I saw this vacuum in action on TikTok a few weeks ago and bought one immediately.
Zero-waste and re-usable candles? Yes, please! These Hyggelight candles are sweeping across social media, and people are raving about their long-lasting flame and awesome smell. The packaging contains seeds and plant food which you can plant anywhere, so there’s no trash. Talk about recycling!
Apparently, everyone has a pool now, and I only found this out by watching way too many TikTok videos last summer. The truth of the matter is that above-ground pools are now super cheap. I’ve seen a lot of people with this one from Intex. It’s over 3 feet deep, 15-feet across, and has a high-quality 1000-gallon water pump; insane for under $300. I haven’t bought one yet, but I really think I should.
If you’ve watched YouTube tech vloggers at all, you’ve seen the rainbow lights emitting from every piece of electronics in the room. It looks awesome, and I know you want some. Welp, my expert keyword-oriented brain has found an affordable keyboard to help you scratch your itch. This keyboard doesn’t just look good, with it’s ultra-bright rainbow LEDs; it’s also super reliable and even spill-resistant. The reviews for this thing are massive, just check it out for yourself!
This J.J. Abrams Book, S., That Is Essentially Interactive, With Weaving Storylines, Included Cache Of Physical Clues, And Story Notations Throughout The Text
Maybe you’ve never heard of this book, and that would be understandable. It’s not a common book, and that’s because it’s not a normal book. S. is a book within a book — well, TWO books within a book, actually. It’s hard to summarize, but basically it’s two investigators searching for clues about an author of fictitious book, which also exists in the context of the actual book, S.. This intense mystery book is more than a book, it’s a game. You’ll become engrossed, and then you’ll begin to understand why I’m telling you to buy an $80 book about a book within a book.
Okay, let’s get serious for a minute: how badly do you need shoes that turn into rollerskates like some sort of fabulous transformer? Really bad? Well, that’s exactly how I felt when I saw some absolute babe wearing a pair of these on TikTok, obviously stealing the show from anyone who stood in her way. I immediately found them on Amazon and added them last minute to this list. You’re welcome.
