Ad failed to load

You might think that after two years of writing articles about genius things on Amazon, I would have seen it all by now. But it's quite the contrary. Amazon is a seemingly endless supply of trending products, recent listings, and epic but low-key items just waiting for someone to find them. With a selection of over 400 million products (and that number is only growing year by year), Amazon always has something new and intriguing to offer — which, if you're as practical as I am, might not be enough to hit the buy button. Of course, once you hear how functional they are, you'll be glad you did.

Even the most practical amongst us know the products worth spending some money for. They're secret little gems that make life easier, won't just collect dust on your shelf, and will decrease your spending in the long run. From a clip that saves you trips to the hair salon to a set of towels that will cut down on your paper towel use, these aren't just unique purchases — they're smart ones.

Consequently, every week, I'm still finding hidden gems on Amazon that will change your life, especially if you're a sensible shopper. Check out some of the best new finds here.
