You’re going through life, doing the normal things. You know, cutting up your avocado with a knife and digging out the pit (while trying to avoid slicing your hand open…) Dragging out the huge, heavy vacuum cleaner just to vacuum up your toddlers spilled cheerios… Trying to make perfectly shaped pancakes without spilling batter everywhere…
Wouldn’t it be great if there were products that solved these types of first world problems?
Turns out, there are. And you can find them all on Amazon.
10 Genius Products on Amazon You Didn’t Know You Needed
Judging by the thousands of 5-star reviews this blackhead suctioner has online, a lot of people have a lot of blackheads that are just begging to be suctioned out.
The blackhead suctioner is awesome in a revolting kind of way, but it really works. Why not get together a group of friends and have a blackhead suctioning party. (I can’t come because I’m washing my hair that night, but y’all have fun 😉 )
Have you ever looked deep into the crevices of your computer keyboard? It’s a cesspool of filth…
Seriously. So much dirt, debris, dead skin skills etc., accumulates in there. But how to get it out?
Enter this Super Clean Cleaning Gel. It’s basically like a grown-up Gak. Fun to play with but actually useful, because it picks up all the dust and dirt in your computer keyboard and other nooks and crannies that are difficult to clean. Plus it smells way better than Gak.
We’re huge avocado fans and probably eat at least 6 or 7 every week. But while I love the taste and versatility of avocados, I really can’t stand the process of cutting, pitting, scooping, cutting again, etc. And I hate how I have to dirty both a knife and a spoon (is it only me that finds that annoying haha?)
Anyway, if you feel the same way then I recommend this Oxo Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer. It’s one handy tool that allows you to cut through the skin, safely remove the pit (no more holding your breath trying not to slice your hand open,) and cut, and easily remove the flesh.
Years ago, I used to go to the beauty salon every week or so and get my eyebrows and upper lip waxed (thank you, Italian blood, for my mustache >.<) Anyway, in an effort to save money, I decided to start forgoing various beauty treatments and start doing them at home. Waxing was one of the first to go, because I discovered this precision facial trimmer.
I seriously love this thing. It’s small, convenient and great for touch-ups in between salon visits, if you still want to go to the salon occasionally.
I use this funnel pitcher for various tasks around the house – it’s a really handy, multi-purpose item to have. Examples of tasks I use it for include: making mini pancakes for my son without dripping batter everywhere, refilling my essential oil diffuser, watering small plants around the house.
I don’t know what it is about my hair, but it seems to retain water like nobody’s business. If I don’t blow-dry my hair then it will still be wet hours later <<< ain’t nobody got time for dat.
At the same time, I haaaate not washing my hair everyday. I workout daily so my roots get pretty oily.
I’ve tried a variety of dry-shampoos with varying success, but I love this BlowPro Faux Dry Shampoo.
Unlike other dry shampoos, BlowPro is a powder rather than an aerosol can. You just tap some into your roots and it instantly absorbs the oil and gives your hair added texture and volume. It’s perfect for a post-workout freshening up.
This kitchen chopper saves SO much time in the kitchen! I try to cook a healthy home-cooked meal every weekday but I’m not exactly the fastest vegetable chopper. And onions… don’t get me started on onions.
Anyway, this multi-use kitchen chopper has been a lifesaver in the kitchen. It takes seconds to chop up everything from onions to celery to bell peppers and even root vegetables. And the clean-up is a breeze (that’s often a drawback to various kitchen gadgets – the time they save is eaten up by the time it takes to clean them!)
You might’ve heard the hype surrounding the Dyson cordless vacuum, but if not, it’s basically the new cool kid on the block when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Admittedly, they’re pretty pricey (but you can save some serious dollars by getting a refurbished one like this.)
We’ve recently downsized to a house about half the size of our previous house (and loving it, btw.) I still have a full sized vacuum cleaner which I use weekly, but having a smaller cordless vacuum like the Dyson makes vacuuming up small spills and dirt a lot more convenient.
The humane way to catch and release spiders and other insects! Living in North Carolina, I have the pleasure of catching multiple spiders and bugs every week.
I refuse to kill them just because they’ve made their way into my house. Up until recently, I’ve used the cup and paper method. But this Critter Catcher is way easier and tons more convenient. Plus you don’t have to get right in the spiders face.
Smoothies are the perfect way to sneak some extra fruits and vegetables into your diet, and they’re one of my favorite ways to start the day. I have a big Vitamix blender that I love but on the days where I’m in a rush to get out of the door in the morning, a portable smoothie maker like this one is a godsend. It’s almost as powerful as the Vitamix but it’s a lot more convenient due to the sip n’ seal lids which allow you to easily take your smoothie on the go.
