We love a lot. Every week, we spend hours combing the internet for the best products at the lowest prices to share with you. But there’s only one thing that makes a product an even better deal: 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 awesome overstock items that you can get for a serious bargain. It’s packed with everything you need, but we’ve tackled the things that can be simplified, cleaned up or make your life a little easier – all at a huge discount.

We’ve searched through hundreds of products – from holiday saving gadgets to quirky items to make relaxing more relaxing – and picked out our favourites. Scroll down for hidden gems to help around the house.

Whether you have sore joints or just some stubborn lids, this jar opener helps to painlessly loosen the lids of jars and bottles. It has already helped more than 3,000 five-star reviewers open jars.

“Real life breaker when I broke my wrist,” wrote a rave reviewer. “​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ had this as a gift when I broke my dominant wrist and could not open many different sized registers with one hand. Worked so well I bought one for a friend with osteoarthritis in both hands and she was happy to be able to open things. without having to call her children or a neighbor for help.”

This gadget takes a spoon break to the next level. Designed as a place to put your messy utensils while you’re cooking, there’s an extra large area to catch all the spills and four slots for all the wooden spoons and brushes you need to clean up dinner.

“Great for cooking large meals!” rave reviewer wrote. “I have the single acre holder which is glass and it looks cute, but when I was cooking big meals for friends and family I was putting napkins down and dirtying the top of the stove with no room for items and stirring scoops and whatever else I’m using. cooking. This was great for getting rid of that problem! I will say, things like curry will stain it, but it stains a lot of other plastic things too and that’s about me not thinking about it. 4 tools can be easily held while cooking on 4 burners, and it adds a pop of color to the kitchen! Hands down the best thing in my kitchen.”

Say goodbye to spilling! This smart automatic beverage dispenser allows you to pump drinks from bottles instead of pouring them, which is a game changer for people who struggle to lift large jugs of drinks. The tap and straw contraption fits into most bottles and has an automatic trigger for hands-free dispensing – just push the rim of your cup against it and the liquid flows.

“Absolutely love this product,” wrote a five-star fan. “It’s really helpful for my older mum who struggles with spills. This is great for anyone with Parkinson’s, stroke or post surgery and you can’t lift heavy objects, great for babies too . I can’t say enough about this product.”

We’ve all accidentally brought too many items to the restroom 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 rave reviewer wrote: “I have a very small 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 just the adhesive, no screws and so far it’s held up well. I like the shelf, mine has the soap dispenser on it. But this is a great shelf for your phone.”

This wall dispenser promises to eliminate the problem of messy tubes of toothpaste. The dispenser turns the tube upside down and, with the push of a lever, squeezes out 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 a happy shopper. We have been using these since November and they are great! Stays firmly attached to the mirror and is easy to use. My husband has left sided weakness from a stroke and has no use of his left arm. He loves how easy it is to load toothpaste onto his toothbrush without any help. So happy with my purchase and I would gladly recommend !!! “…

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

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

If you spend any amount of time on your couch, you might want to invest in this organizer. On one side, it has six pockets to hold items like books and remote controls. The other side slides under the sofa cushion to hold it in place. Amazon shoppers love it for saving space.

“I have arm covers with small long pockets for remotes and my mom came in for a visit and only needed one arm cover to store her iPad book and puzzles,” reported a rave reviewer. “We decided on this one because it says it’s stretchy so you can tuck more under the sofa cushion to prevent slipping and it’s perfect! She picked the color she wanted, teal and she been using it for several weeks now and she couldn’t. The pockets are big enough for her iPad, puzzle books and pens and even the thick zip up case where the iPad is stored when not in use feels the soft burlap-like material and seems solidly built. worth the asking price.”

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

“Where was I without a sink strainer?” asked a happy shopper. “Instead of finding those dumb bowls with holes in them, this makes it so easy to dump vegetables and fruit in and run the sink hose over it.

Made with waterproof Oxford cloth, these storage cubes have a clear vinyl window, a steel frame to help hold their shape for orderly storage, and a zip closure for easy access.

The end of summer means we’ll be swapping our summer bedding and clothes for warmer items. If you’re short on closet space, these Oxford cloth storage cubes keep things compact and out of the way when you don’t need them.

“These ordered to store bedding, blankets, comforters, etc,” shared a happy shopper. “I used to store those items in the plastic zip packaging that new sheets and quilts come in, but I had so many and they were scattered in our storage room and in different closets. Now they are all together and still protected and on easily accessible. Love the front view with two-way zippers on the front and top. They can be a little heavy and clumsy when fully loaded, but they seem sturdy and have hope they last a long time on what I’m using.”

This bag is designed with two openings and a loop at one end for easy hanging. You can use it for plastic grocery bags you want to reuse – or anything else that needs clutter in your home.

“I love these bags!” reported one enthusiastic shopper. “Strong cord and material, excellent sturdiness. And it holds a lot of bags. What I love most is that the bottom allows me to pull one out, but it does not allow bags to fall on 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 full sun with temps in the 90s, I found it very comfortable sitting in this shade,” wrote a happy shopper. “The heat usually bothers me and my husband isn’t that worried. The first Sunday I used this umbrella I was cooler than when he was using a regular umbrella .”
