I wanted to share some of my favorite and more unique Amazon purchases! Some of the items listed below are things that I have had for years, whereas others I have bought more recently, but love equally as much!
Whatever brought you to this blog post, I hope it gives you the opportunity to try a new product!
You can click the picture or title of the product for a direct link to the product! The list is in no particular order.
I love this battery organizer for so many reasons.
It not only holds 200+ batteries, but it also comes with a battery tester, AND it is fireproof, waterproof, and explosion proof safe. It keeps everything so nicely organized so batteries aren’t left to float around. FUN FACT– did you know there is a correct way to get rid of batteries? Batteries that are thrown away with regular trash pose a risk of starting a fire. Make sure you dispose of them correctly!
Wifi bulbs are awesome. They make turning on a lamp so convenient. I actually shared this product in a previous blog post and I’m sharing it again here because it’s one of the products on this list that we use DAILY. You purchase the bulb, download an app, and you can control the light from your phone. It’s so simple.
We use these bulbs in every single one of our lamps in our home (except the guest room).
This bulb is so convenient to have in our sons nursery! We usually use the red light setting every night as part of our nighttime routine with him. Some nights when he gets a little squirmy because we are *taking too long* to put his lotion on (lol) and change him, we can entertain and distract him by changing the colors of the lamp! It’s actually pretty fun! I also love that I can control the dimness level of the bulb, right from my phone! When my son wakes up first thing in the morning (or from a nap) I can more calmly get him up by adjusting the dimness, instead of just flipping a regular ole’ switch on that will make you want to squit your eyes because the shock of going from darkness to bright is too much! We’ve all been there!
Sometimes when my husband and I will head up stairs to bed, we can’t remember if we turned the lamps off downstairs. It’s so nice to just open the app and check! We can turn the lamps off with the simple tap of a button and never have to leave our cozy bed!
You can also set timers for the bulb to turn on and off. For example, I have the bulbs set downstairs, to turn on at 6:30am every day and turn off at 11pm.
To some people, maybe this seems too high maintenance, but for us, we just love the convenience of the bulb and how nice they really are to have!
Another really convenient product that we have multiple of around the house are these cable clip holders. You simple put any cord/cable through the slot on the clip, attach the clip (by 3M sticker) to whatever surface that you want to keep your cord on, and viola! No more fallen phone cords, lost somewhere on the ground next to your night stand. Below is another picture so you can better see how it works!
These cloths really are magic! They leave a streak free shine on both mirrors and windows. All you do is slightly wet the cloth, wipe your mirror/window, and smudges are gone! I especially love using these on our bathroom mirrors because they don’t leave that annoying streak at the top that other window cleaners do. Also, a huge plus is that you are only using water! So that means no need to buy glass/window cleaner!
While I am on the topic of cloths, I will share these microfiber cloths that I love, too! Microfiber is great for many reasons. One reason being that it saves on paper towel use. Another reason is that they tend to pick up dust fibers a little better, and the third reason is that they hold water really well.
The reason I purchased these are for the colors. I have a certain color that I clean with for different things.
Blue and green are used for cleaning really dirty things like outside furniture, shelves, shoes, etc. The pink and yellow ones I use for cleaning our vanity’s and showers/tubs. It helps to have colors to separate for different uses!
This one might appeal more to the ladies! After using a small handheld mirror for most all my life, last year I FINALLY broke down and bought myself this LED wall mounted mirror. I use this every night and every morning! It’s double sided; one side has 10x magnification and the other side is normal.
There are 3 brightness levels on the light; all you do is tap with your finger to adjust.
I did my research for a while on these things because they are a little pricey and I didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars. I actually had originally bought a wall mounted mirror that was battery operated, and I hated it. The battery died within 2 weeks, and the brightness level was horrible. I returned it and decided to spend $20 more for one that needed to be plugged in to an outlet, and I’m so glad I made the switch! It exactly what I wanted!
If you have not heard of sleek socket, it’s an outlet cover that is intended to hid ugly cables and cords. It’s pretty self explanatory once you see a picture. (SEE BELOW)
These do exactly what they say! They deflect air from your vents, so you don’t have trapped air under a curtain! Or, maybe you have trouble with your heat not warming up your bedroom when it’s cold out – these can deflect the heat to go towards the middle of your room, instead of losing the heat if your vent is close to a window.
This item is something I pray that we never have to use! But with everything, it’s always good to feel prepared in case of an emergency. This one will really only pertain to those who live in a multi-story home. Basically this is a ladder that opens up.
In case of a fire, you put the ladder out of your second story window, and climb right down.
Again, like I said, I pray we never have to use this. But, growing up I lived in a split level and my parents had fire escape ropes attached to each of our beds. Once my husband and I became pregnant with our son, I began thinking of anything and everything we might need- especially those things you would need in case of emergencies. That’s when a simple google search led me to this ladder, and I thought it would be smart to keep in our sons room.
I had to end the list with something fun! Where my foodies at????
This cheap little mini waffle maker has gotten so much use in our household. Ironically, we use it more for making other things than we do actual waffles! We make all different kinds of chaffles (cheese waffle- google it if you’ve never heard!) We make cheese + pickle chaffles, cheese + chicken, and even pizza chaffles! We have fun experimenting with all different kinds!
This mini waffle maker is also the perfect size to cook one egg! It’s super easy and fun to use! So if you’re a foodie like me, or know someone who is, you might find this mini waffle maker worth your money!
I hope you found a new + unique product to try after reading my Top 10 list today! Sometimes we simply just aren’t aware of what’s out there, unless we read or hear about it somewhere. Thanks for taking the time to read.
Enjoy + Happy Shopping! 🙂
