Don’t sit around and wait for somebody to come along and fix your problems: do it yourself…using the internet! It’s called retail therapy, sweety! But seriously—there are so many ways to solve your everyday problems using products that already exist on Amazon, I’m surprised there aren’t more articles about it. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all.
For instance, you can stop trying to figure out new ways to remove the pet hair from your clothes and just buy one of these globs of goo that possibly function with the help of witchcraft. Or maybe you’re having an issue getting to every last drop of that Heinz ketchup bottle — I have you covered with this bottle stand, friend.
It’s not easy being this thrifty and cutting edge, but hey — someone has to do it and it may as well be me. Here are the top 30 extraordinary products found on Amazon that will solve at least some of your problems, including a few you didn’t even know you had.

There’s nothing worse than having muscle aches somewhere just out of reach, but The RumbleRoller brings relief back into your own hands. It allows you to perform deep tissue massage on yourself anywhere on your body using its smooth rolling action. It has perfectly shaped spikes that get to problem areas, like the pressure points deep in your neck which are usually the source of things like tension headaches. It’s been essential to working out the unruly knots in my back — so much so that I use it everyday.
How many condiment bottles have you thrown away prematurely because you couldn’t reach the last of that sweet sauce? I bet a ton. Especially those pesky ketchup bottles — what’s the deal, Heinz?

Keep your bottles upside-down all the time and always have access to the last drop. Sweet Baby Ray’s, here I come! Mmmmm. I’m hungry now.
Did you know charcoal is the original toothpaste? Well, gear up because activated bamboo charcoal is back — and this time it’s going between your teeth. But seriously, this floss is exceptional at getting all the junk out, and it uses activated charcoal to help kill bacteria. I don’t know what makes a floss “certified vegan,” but I do know that my mouth has never felt more clean. And no, it doesn’t taste like charcoal — it’s peppermint flavored.
OTOTO is making the cutest stuff these days, and this Miss Nessie Egg Cup is no exception. Who doesn’t want a mythical beast helping you prepare and eat your breakfast? Miss Nessie is BPA-free, just like the real Loch Ness Monster.

It’s seriously so cool — you can also use chocolate, or basically anything that freezes. Hint: drink tawny port out of chocolate shot glasses and change your world.
Why does everyone who watches two episodes of Master Chef think they can suddenly cook a Christmas turkey? Listen to me: if Tim Allen couldn’t do it in The Santa Claus, you probably can’t either. Don’t be a turkey, time your turkey to perfection with the Norpro Reusable Popup Turkey Timer.
I don’t know about you guys, but I think that popping pimples is kind of gross. Nevertheless, Spin Master created this game where you pop big disgusting pimples on a plastic head. I have to be honest, it’s pretty fun. It’s recommended, apparently, for children 5 and up — but it was actually the adults in our house playing it the most. After a rough year, I think this game works well as a mindless stress reliever.
Let’s get serious: if you’re going to do happy hour at home, why not pull out all the stops? This tiny neon green saw is a bottle opener and fruit slicer all-in-one, and it looks slick as heck. Slice the lime with the saw blade and pop your Corona with the bottle opener. Toss the lima into the cerveza. Enjoy the rest of your life.
These bad boys are great for resolving small problems around the office or home. No phone stand? Use these to easily attach your phone to a cup for that Zoom meeting. Need to hang your keys from the baby stroller? Just carry one of these things around with you and hook your keys anywhere. They come in handy so frequently that you’ll be able to avoid many future issues. This 10-pack is only 4.99, which is an extremely reasonable price for well-made reusable rubber bands with hooks!
Stop clogging power sockets with your devices every night and charge them directly from the lamp next to your bed. This bulb adapter adds two 2A USB ports right under the bulb of any light socket, giving you power in places with sparse outlets. It even has an on/off switch, so you can keep the USB power on when you turn the light off. According to Amazon reviews, there are hundreds of problems this thing solves. Check them out for yourself!
This super cool little pouch attaches to your bra and keeps your documents and cash safe when you’re traveling. I honestly never leave the house without this thing — why not keep your important documents close at all times? It easily fits your passport, credit cards, and a good amount of cash.
Remember how turnt I was about self-identified chefs and their poorly cooked turkeys? Well, then it may come as no surprise that I’m also recommending this awesome rack which helps cook your meat perfectly without much effort. Use this in combination with the turkey timer and you’ll have a perfectly roasted bird in no time.
How do you store your headphones? Do they usually end up a tangled mess when you take them out of your pocket? Grab one of these Nite Ize Curvyman Cord Supervisors and always have a safe way to wind up the cable. This company is known for its customer service, so you better believe they will live up to their lifetime guarantee.
Did you know they make wet wipes the size of a beach towel? I certainly didn’t until I stumbled upon Epic Wipes, and my backwoods ramblings haven’t been the same since. There’s nothing like showing up at the campsite dirty and having the ability to bathe myself completely. These things are really pushing the limits of what’s possible for the outdoorsy crowd.
If you have recurring foot pain, like plantar fasciitis, you know it can be challenging to soothe all the pressure points simultaneously.

Don’t wait until it’s too late, squash the foot pain now!
Aromatherapy is one of my favorite past times, and using this Lively Breeze cactus for my essential oils is exactly what I needed to modernize my setup. Just pour your essential oils into the ceramic base and allow it to naturally enter the airspace through a hybrid of science and magic. They’re also cute AF, so get one of these cactuses and start smelling your favorite scents all day.
Are you ready to have your mind blown? Pick up one of these YUNCHI Facial Cleansing Brushes and move closer to the true meaning of life: 24/7 self-care. The vibrating function forces all the junk out of your pores, leaving you with healthier and radiant skin. It’s completely waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about messing this thing up when you’re using it after a shower. Plus, the customer service seems exceptional according to Amazon reviews I’ve seen!
Where are you supposed to put a drink when you don’t have a cupholder? On your lap? On your desk, next to your keyboard? And what do you do if it spills all over you and your important stuff? Don’t even put yourself in the position to face these hypotheticals — pick up one of these portable cup holders that clip to the lip of any flat surface. It helps declutter your workspace in a way you didn’t even know you needed. For me, these things are a massive quality of life upgrade. 10/10, would buy again.
Not all tripods are created equal. Most traditional tripods are notoriously tricky to get level, and not to mention they’re heavy and not very portable in general. This tripod has 12” flexible legs that enable you to get your camera level and stable on virtually any surface — including rocks and even railings. Trigger your inner Martin Scorsese and get the perfect shots for your next project using this stand that you can fit in your handbag!
I don’t know about you guys, but my favorite pastime is throwing my body into a horizontal position and zoning out completely. But what do you do if you’re somewhere with nothing to rest those tired feet upon? Just whip out one of these portable foot hammocks, clip to the desk or chair in front of you, and start contemplating the meaning of life as you kick back and drift off to oblivion. *Insert Bilbo Baggins meme* After all, why shouldn’t you relax?
Dogs don’t always know what is in their best interest. For instance, eating their entire dinner in 10 seconds can’t be the most healthy way to eat. Give your dog the appearance of self-control with this slow feeder bowl from JASGOOD. It basically puts their food into a maze, forcing them to put in work to get it all. It becomes nearly impossible for your doggo to inhale their meal as per usual. I also use one for my friend Mike when he comes over for dinner, but he doesn’t get as excited as my dog does when he sees it coming.
Did you know that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is an actual god for an actual religion? It’s called Pastafarianism, and it’s absolutely ridiculous — by design. It was created to show the absurdity of teaching intelligent design in public schools, which I guess makes sense. But do you know what makes more sense? Buying this Spaghetti Monster colander from OTOTO that’s actually real and will 100% strain your pasta. Just think: you’ll be able to bore all your guests about Pastafarianism and its inner workings at your next monster-themed pasta party!
This thing is essentially a massive glass spike that you freeze and shove into your freshly uncorked wine. It’s called, obviously, the Corkcicle — which maybe the most appropriate product name of all time. This thing chills your wine down super quickly and also helps aerate for maximum flavor. I honestly can’t believe I didn’t come up with this product myself. I guess drinking all that white wine doesn’t leave much time for inventing and manufacturing. Oh well, someday I’ll think of my own million dollar idea.
Why are makeup brushes regularly destroyed after just a couple weeks of traveling? It’s probably because they are not stored correctly, dummy! That’s why I absolutely had to pick up a couple of these Blenderelle sponge protectors when I found them on Amazon. They work incredibly well, and I have been able to cut out a lot of my unexpected makeup expenses by keeping my expensive sponges for way longer. These things also work well to protect against curious cats and doofus dogs!
For me, exercising at night is the preferred method. The only problem is it can be extremely dangerous, especially if drivers can’t see you on the road. Solve that problem head-on with these multi-colored lights that clip comfortably to your shoes. Perfect for runners, cyclists, skaters, rollerbladers, or anyone else who wants to share part of the road at night. They have multiple modes for visibility, including color-changing flashing and strobing options. I also like to just put them on during the day and pretend I’m wearing adult-sized LA Lights, so there’s that option too.
How many of you had a George Foreman Grill when you were growing up? Those things were great until one day you decided to put some bacon in it, place it next to your bed, wake up early and turn it on, then fall back asleep and try to wake up to the smell of fresh bacon — but in the confusion you end up stepping on it and grilling your foot. Well, Michael Scott, maybe it’s time to get one of these pre-seasoned cast iron pans from Lodge and start cooking things like a regular adult again. This is by far the most popular pan in my house, and it’s currently only $17.90 on Amazon (33% off!)
Cyclists are going absolutely wild about these things. Not only do they light-up, keeping you visible on the road, but they have a Bluetooth speaker that sounds great and loud enough to hear while you’re cycling. The best part is that it’s just a normal 22oz water bottle, so it fits right in your bottle holster. Honestly, these are another one of those inventions I wish I had thought of. Kudos, ICEWATER, for creating the perfect product.
How many flashlights do you have at home that last for 70hrs on two AA batteries? My guess is none. Change that with the FLEXIT 2.0. This flashlight is seriously so cool. The actual LEDs are positioned on a flat and flexible surface, so you can change how the light is dispersed. Create a focused beam, or a torch that lights up every direction. Wrap it around a pole or stuff it into a corner. It’s definitely more than a flashlight because you can use it for stationary lighting anywhere you need it, and without using tape or mounts.
I get it, not everyone grew up in the mountains and is obsessed with non-stick pans like I am. If you’re the more modern type, you should pick up the Cleverona Essential Nonstick pan and reap the benefits of the latest pan technology. It has a removable handle, making it totally safe for the oven. Idea time: make mac & cheese using this pan, toss some bread crumbs on top, then put the whole pan (sans handle) in the oven at 300 degrees for 10 minutes. This idea is about to change your life.
Stop using wasteful paper-based pet hair removers and start using this mass of goo. It never gets dirty — all the collected fur just moves into one corner and you can vacuum it all up easily. Honestly, what is this thing made out of? I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing was manufactured with alien technology and using alien compounds.
Get all the benefits of Bluetooth headphones without the massive price tag by using this clip audio adapter from APEKX. Be able to cook dinner with headphones on while your phone is charging on the wall. It’s literally the most liberating feeling on the planet. Podcasts and cooking, name a more iconic duo…
