Life's A B*tch, Here Are 59 Things On Amazon That Make It A Bit Easier

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

Life can be a real pain sometimes. Whether your car has a flat tire or if you stubbed your toe in the dark this morning, it's almost too easy for your day to take a wrong turn. There is a solution, though — and that solution is Amazon. In fact, whenever I run into one of life's little inconveniences, I head straight to the virtual store to find out if there are any brilliant Amazon products that can make those hiccups a bit easier to overcome. And believe it or not, it's helped me out of a bind more than once.

Take the bidet I've included on this list, for example. When I ran out of toilet paper earlier in the year, I was ready to ruin my plumbing with paper towels. But now, I haven't even bothered stocking up on paper. In fact I've completely switched over to using the bidet, as it's not only cheaper, but arguably more hygienic as well. And don't get me started on my over-the-sink dish drying rack. Not only has it helped de-clutter my counters, but any stray drips fall neatly into my sink so that there's nothing for to clean up.

When it comes to small problems in life, that's exactly what they are: small problems. So why not let all the genius products on Amazon help you out when you need them? Go ahead and start shopping.
