Amazon

If you ask me, shopping online is way more convenient than actually driving somewhere. For starters, you can buy whatever you want by simply opening your laptop, signing into Amazon, and clicking "Add to Cart." On top of that, you can usually find whichever products you're looking for — even if they're selling out fast. In fact, the internet is full of clever Amazon products that are selling quickly.

What exactly do I mean by "clever," anyway? I'm talking about the products that help solve life's little problems. You know, the space-saving hangers that'll help you make the most out of cramped closets, or even a pair of five-blade scissors that help you get herbs chopped up in a jiffy. But if your life is easy-peasy without any problems — in that case, I'm jealous — there's a sleek electric wine opener in here for you, because nothing says "stress-free" like a fresh glass of red.

Whether you're looking to solve life's little problems or if you're simply in the mood for some retail therapy, there are tons of clever things on Amazon that are more than worth their price tags. And speaking of prices, everything I've picked for this list is $30 or less. So go ahead — grab those clothes hangers and the herb scissors.
