Whether you love or hate it, taking care of your home is a thing that has to be done. Personally, mopping floors and wiping counters isn’t my favorite activity — but there are actually some really helpful Amazon products for your home that have made it so much easier to get and stay tidy and organized.

First, there are the things that can help you clean up. Take this dust pan and broom duo, for example. It has so many features that make it easier than ever to keep your floors clean, including an extension pole and a system for getting all the dust and dog hair out of your broom in seconds. These are the products that make it actually kind of fun to tidy up, especially since you aren’t wasting so much time dealing with all the annoying little features that take longer than the cleaning itself (like who wants to spend their precious time pulling pet hair tumbleweeds for their broom bristles?).

Then, there are the products that help you stay organized. There are so many genius Amazon products out there, but some of my favorites are the things you wish you’d known about ages ago... like this measuring cube. It combines all your teaspoon, tablespoon, and cups into one simple cube that’s easy to clean and store. No more cluttered drawers, and instead a peace of mind for you.
