Though I no longer live in New York, I lived in the city long enough to become super efficient. New Yorkers are always so darn busy, so I was constantly looking out for things that would save me some major time. Lucky for me, there are a lot of products to make life more efficient.

As a practical person, I don't want to spend money on frivolous things all the time (though a splurge here and there is only human). I want my money to go to things that solve problems, and don't just add clutter to my apartment.

It turns out Amazon has tons of little inventions that solve the smaller issues of life — think things like weighted bookmarks that will hold open your cookbooks for you, an easy place to keep your keys, and a magic contraption that will make putting on your fitted sheets a breeze.

There are plenty random inventions that make life more efficient if you know where to look for them — and lucky for you, I totally do. Each one will save you time, stress, and even money in the long run, and will please even the busiest New Yorker — and that's not an easy group to please.
