Amazon

It used to be that whenever you wanted to find a totally life-changing invention that could bring order to your messy life, you had to, um invent it. Luckily, now you can just go on Amazon and find it. It has every genius product on the market imaginable, it's cornered the market on shockingly useful products that also happen to be cheap AF.

The other big perk? They happen to be among the most top-ranked products on the site.
