I try really hard to live as simply as possible. To me, this means clearing out the clutter and keeping only the most useful, practical products that genuinely improve my life in one way or another. The items that I opt to keep need to have multiple functions or solve an everyday problem, and if they don't, they're going straight in the donation pile (I'm talking to you, Beatles bobblehead set).

If you're the type of person who only likes functional products, or if you're currently shopping for someone who falls into this category, Amazon is an awesome place to start. Sure, they've got their fill of jokey novelty items — like the infamous bologna sandwich wall decal — but they've also got things that are extremely genius and practical, so you'll actually get some use out of your purchases.

Best of all, Amazon also has a category called Launchpad, which highlights innovative and technologically advanced inventions from startup companies. Here, you'll find products that began with an "I wish something like that existed," and so they went ahead and created it for your convenience. Whether you're into fitness, travel, tech, beauty, or cooking, here are some of the coolest and most dynamic inventions, so you, too, can cut down on clutter.
