27 Innovative Things On Amazon Anyone Who Appreciates Clever Things Will Love

I consider myself both a minimalist and a neat freak, but I'm also kind of obsessed with the newest technology and the coolest trending beauty products. Contradictory? You bet. That's why I love innovative and clever products that I'll actually use on a daily basis. That way, I don't have to feel guilty about buying it, and I don't have to feel like I'm using up precious storage space on my vanity clutter.

When it comes to finding these genius inventions, Amazon is always my go-to. It's the biggest online marketplace in the world, and it's not shrinking anytime soon. In fact, Amazon even has a page called Launchpad, where they feature new releases from the world's greatest start-ups (including stuff that began on Kickstarter and IndieGogo). That's why I absolutely love introducing people to clever inventions on Amazon they never knew existed; no matter how many articles I write, and no matter how many wishlists I create, there always seems to be new, awesome products popping up every day.

The ones included here span every category — from beauty to brilliant organizational products — so you're bound to find something that catches your interest. If you're the kind of person who appreciates clever things, then this list should satisfy.
