Amazon is one of those websites that you can lose hours on – it’s like the Internet’s version of Target. You go on to look for one thing, and end up discovering at least five other gadgets or items you had no idea you needed but now can’t imagine living without. Not to encourage this type of spontaneous spending behavior, but, uh, maybe you really do need those items. Maybe they’ll make your life a little bit easier! I have recently discovered a lot of Amazon products that you’ll want to use every day, keeping them in your handbag just in case.
It’s not my fault, really – the Amazon Interesting Finds page makes it just a little too easy to find things you don’t really need to be spending money on. This week, we’re looking at small products that will basically change your life (not to be dramatic). Some are cheap AF, others are a little pricer but might be worth saving for. Check ’em out and try not to spend money. We dare you!
1. A Constant Reminder To Feed Your Pet
If you can never seem to remember to feed your animals before leaving the house, you need this. Like seriously, you do, because that’s just mean.
2. Glow In The Dark Key Covers
You know when you’re fumbling around for your keys in your bag and it’s dark AF and you can’t see anything? Yeah, that would be the time it’s helpful to have keys that glow in the dark.
3. Sushi Flash Drive
I firmly believe that every student should have a flash drive on them at all times, and why NOT make it a sushi shaped one?
4. A Portable Tea Infuser
If you drink a lot of loose leaf tea, you’ll love this thermal mug that infuses it quickly for you. Perfect for on-the-go or at home!
5. A Bluetooth Padlock
If you use lockers but struggle to remember a number combo, you need this Bluetooth padlock. It works with your phone and is super portable. This is great for the gym!
6. A Fun Pill Box
If you take a lot of pills throughout the day, you can keep track of them much better with this fun little box. Or, just use it for Advil or Tylenol so you’re never stuck!
7. Personal Alarm
Want to protect yourself? This tiny personal alarm rings off at ambulance level sound for up to 30 minutes when you pull the top tab. It’s ideal for runners, but can be used by anyone.
8. Water Bottle with Pill Holder
This is too cool not to add – a water bottle that also holds daily pills so that you have no excuse to skip them.
9. Bluetooth Car Speaker
If you’re going to insist on using your car while driving, make sure it’s on speaker – but still, holding the phone isn’t great. This Bluetooth car speaker makes things safer and easier.
10. A Collapsible Water Bottle
Drinking water every day is so important, but carrying a water bottle can be annoying. This collapsible water bottle makes things easier and lighter.
Why do you need this? I don’t know… because playing with it relieves stress? Do you need a reason? It’s slime, it’s cool.
12. A Mini Espresso Maker
Maybe you really, really love espresso – I don’t know your life. If you do, save money on Starbucks by carrying around this little press.
13. A Pocket Light Bulb
At first glance, this might seem dumb, but it’s actually a little LED light! It’s cute! It seems like it would come in handy one day!
14. A Portable Storage Hanger
Okay, this is really cool – it looks like just a rubber band or something, but you can stick it to a wall and use it as makeshift storage. It’s one of those things you don’t know you need until you need it.
15. A Portable Speaker
Cell phone speakers are sub par. Get a little handheld speaker that works well and is easy to carry around, like this cute wooden one.
