We love so much. Every week, we spend hours searching for the best products at the lowest prices to share with you. But there’s only one thing that makes a product deal even better: it solves a problem.

You probably already know that Amazon is loaded with items that meet both criteria. What you might not know is that Amazon has a secret section with amazing items that you can pick up at a serious bargain. It’s packed with everything you need, but we’ve zeroed in on the items that can simplify, clarify, or just make your life a little easier — all at a huge discount.

We’ve scoured hundreds of products — from vacation-saving gadgets to quirky items to make relaxing more relaxing — and picked our favorites. Scroll down to find hidden gems to help around the house.

Whether you have joint pain or just a few stubborn lids, this jar opener helps you loosen jar and bottle lids without pain. It has already helped more than 3,000 five-star reviewers open jars.

“A real lifesaver when I broke my wrist,” wrote one enthusiastic reviewer. “I got this as a gift when I broke my dominant wrist and couldn’t open many different sized lids with just one hand. It worked so well that I bought one for a friend with osteoarthritis in both hands and she was thrilled to be able to open things without to have to call her children or a neighbor for help.”

This gadget takes a spoon to the next level. Designed as a place to put your messy utensils while you cook, it has one extra large to catch all the drips and there are four slots for all the wooden spoons and brushes you need to prepare dinner.

“Perfect for cooking big meals!” wrote one enthusiastic reviewer. “I have the single utensil holder that’s glass and looks cute, but when I cook big meals for friends and family, I’ve been putting paper towels and just messing up the stove with no room to mix things and balls and whatever else I’m using. cooking. This was PERFECT for getting rid of that problem! I will say that things like curry will stain it. But it also stains a lot of other plastic items, so it worries me because I don’t think ahead. Otherwise, it’s easy to clean. it can easily hold 4 utensils while cooking on 4 burners and adds a pop of color to the kitchen! It’s the best thing I have in my kitchen.”

Say goodbye to leaks! This smart automatic drink dispenser lets you draw drinks from bottles instead of pouring, which is a game changer for people who struggle to lift large jugs of drinks. The tap and straw container fits most bottles and has an automatic trigger for hands-free dispensing — just push the tip of your cup against it and the liquid flows.

“Absolutely love this product,” wrote one five-star fan. “This is so helpful for my older mother who struggles with effusion. This is so great for anyone with Parkinson’s, stroke or post surgery and you can’t lift heavy objects, amazing for kids too. Can’t say enough for this product.”

We’ve all accidentally brought a few too many items into the toilet with us, and this little gadget means you don’t have to look for a place to put your phone or keys while you go about your business. Genius, right?

One enthusiastic reviewer wrote: “I have a very tiny powder room that had no room for toilet paper and didn’t want to cut a hole in the wall. This worked great! I actually attached it to the side of the sink with the glue, no screws and so far it holds up well. I like the shelf, for me I have the soap dish on it. But this is a great shelf for your phone.”

This wall-mounted dispenser promises to eliminate the problem of messy toothpaste tubes. The dispenser turns the tube upside down and, with the push of a lever, squeezes the toothpaste onto your brush, hands-free. According to Amazon shoppers, this little gadget has the power to prevent messes and save relationships.

“I bought two (his and hers),” shared one happy shopper. We have been using them since November and they are fantastic! It remains firmly attached to the mirror and is easy to use. My husband has weakness on the left side from a stroke and has no use of his left hand. He loves how easy it is to put toothpaste on his toothbrush without any help. Very happy with my purchase and would happily recommend!!!”

Perfect for small kitchens, this dish drying rack saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water. Bonus: it folds up for easy storage.

“Oooooh, I scored big for Valentine’s Day this year!” wrote a husband in love. “My wife loves it. She likes order in her kitchen and leaving things on the counter to dry is horrible. This little baby is easy to store and unfold for use and allows it to hold all the dishes/pots/pans over the sink. It can be a good space saver, allowing you to use the area above your sink. It also works well as a cooling rack. So easy to use, yet so active.”

If you spend time on your couch, you might want to invest in this organizer. At one end, it has six pockets to hold items like books and remote controls. The other end slides under the couch cushion to hold it in place. Amazon shoppers love it for decluttering their space.

“I have arm covers with little long pockets for remotes and my mom came for a visit and just wanted a cover to store her iPad and puzzle books,” reported one enthusiastic reviewer. “We decided on this because it says it’s extended so you can put more under the sofa cushion to prevent it from slipping and it’s perfect! Picked the color she wanted, teal and has been using it for several weeks now and couldn’t be happier. The pockets are big enough to store her iPad, puzzle books and pens, and even the thick zippered case that stores the iPad in when not in use. The material feels like soft burlap and feels pretty sturdy. worth it absolutely the asking price.”

Anyone who has ever made pasta knows how easy it is to make a mess and lose your pasta when draining the pasta with a colander. This strainer fits perfectly over your sink to prevent rain, thanks to its adjustable design.

“Where was I without a sink strainer? asked a happy shopper. “Instead of taking out those stupid bowls with holes, this makes it so easy to throw veggies and fruit in it and run the sink hose. It’s been a few weeks, but I’m using it a lot.”


JHSSN Clothes Storage Bag

Made with waterproof Oxford fabric, these storage cubes feature a clear vinyl window, a steel frame to hold their shape for regular storage, and a zipper closure for easy access.

The end of summer means we’ll be swapping out our summer bedding and clothes for more comfortable ones. If you’re short on closet space, these Oxford Fabric Storage Cubes keep things compact and out of the way when you don’t need them.

“I ordered these to store bedding, blankets, comforters, etc.,” shared one satisfied buyer. “I used to store these items in the ziplock plastic bag that new sheets and comforters come in, but I had so many and they were scattered around our storage room and in various closets. Now it’s all together and still protected and easily available. I love the sheer front with a two-way zip on the front and top. They can be a bit heavy and unwieldy when fully loaded, but they seem sturdy and hopefully last a long time for what I use them for. “

This bag is designed with two openings and a loop on one end for easy hanging. You can use it for plastic grocery bags you want to reuse — or anything else you need to pack around your house.

“I love these bags!” said one enthusiastic buyer. “Very strong drawstring and material, great sturdiness. And it holds a lot of bags. What I like best is that the bottom allows me to take one out but not let the bags fall to the floor.”

Not only is the umbrella made for the rain (it’s never too early to prepare for the rainy season!), but it’s also designed to provide shade from the sun and block harmful UV rays.

“Sitting in sunny weather with temperatures in the 90s, I found this umbrella very comfortable to sit under,” wrote one happy buyer. “I’m usually bothered by the heat and my husband not so much. The first Sunday I used this umbrella I was cooler than using a regular umbrella.”
