The Best Amazon Home Finds

July 5, 2023


Team LIY

Our FAVORITE home finds - all from Amazon!

Home is where the heart is…. or where the Amazon Prime truck delivers. Either way. You could say we have quite the little love affair happening with Amazon when it comes to filling our homes, from our kitchen must-haves to decor pieces. We can’t quit Amazon! We recently took a look at all of the home items we’ve purchased through the years and narrowed down our all-time favorites to share with you! If you’re wanting to know the items we turn to again and again in our homes, here you have them!

Bissel Little Green Machine

Green Machine

Things you will never hear me say: “I regret buying the Bissel Little Green Machine” — especially after one of our dogs vomits all over our bedroom rug 😆 This thing works like a DREAM. It’s amazing how much it picks up from rugs, couches, stains, spills, dog bodily fluid, etc! A definite household must!

GE Nugget Ice Maker

Ice Maker

I never knew how wonderful owning a nugget ice maker would be until I got it and now, well, let’s just say all other ice fails in comparison. You can have the satisfaction of your favorite fast food joint ice in all of your drinks at home. Simply sit it on your counter, add water, plug it in and watch it do its thing! 

Hatch Restore

If I was giving out an award for “best purchase made in the 2020s” this guy would take the trophy home. We bought this Hatch Restore after learning about it on Shark Tank [same inventor of the Hatch Baby that’s been a top seller with over 9,000 reviews] and I fell in love after night one. It’s a personalized sleep machine that will ensure you get the best night of sleep possible. You simply set-up your desired “sleep routine” ranging from reading time, meditation time, a sound machine during the night, a natural sunrise to wake up to, an alarm clock with sounds that are fun [and relaxing] to wake up to and so much more. I truly look forward to crawling into bed every night, starting my sleep routine via the app and letting the Hatch do its thing. Husband approved as well! Ps. I think this will [or at least should be] a hot seller for Christmas this year — what better gift can you give than an awesome night of sleep for life?

Rug Grippers

Rug Grips / Machine Washable Rug

Dare I say the best $10 purchase I’ve ever made?! If you have dogs or a Roomba, these rug grippers are a must! Bonus: they’re reusable and washable! Just peel, stick, and voila – no slip!

COOP Pillow

We tested several pillows awhile back and this one won for all of the categories – a year later and I’m still sleeping on it every night! I love that you can add or remove the amount of memory foam that you require to ensure you get a perfect night of sleep! 

Refrigerator Magnets

Refrigerator Magnets / Grocery List

Fridge Magnets: one thing you can never have too many of! I love the neutral color of these [also available in bright colors if that’s more your style] + they’re heavy duty enough to hold cards, photos, notes and anything else that needs to be front and center on the fridge.

Weights & Storage Rack

Weights / Storage Rack

Up in the [home] gym, just workin’ on my fitness! 😉 Full disclosure: I wouldn’t suggest adding any dumbbell weights heavier than 15lbs to this storage rack, but it’s perfect for beginner lifters like myself!

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt and Pepper Shakers are one of those things you use daily but are random to shop for! If you’re like me, they sit out on your kitchen counter and you want something that gives a cuter vibe than the standard containers they come in. These are super easy to refill, come in multiple colors, and are a great price!

Throw Blanket

Throw Blanket [50×60, Silver]

I’ve had this baby for over six years and I am still in LOVE. It’s soft and cozy, but also looks pretty as a throw on the couch when I’m not using it!! It also comes in 25 other colors.

Measuring Cups and Spoons

Oxo Measuring Cups and Spoons

I use these daily and can definitely speak to the quality! These magnetic measuring cups and spoons are super easy to use and clean. I got them as a wedding gift over 6 years ago and they have held up SO well! You can purchase them as a set with both of these or separately! xo Katy

Outdoor Rug

Rug [Black/Grey, 7’9”x10’2”] // Umbrella // Outdoor Pillows // Patio Set [on sale!]

Eufy RoboVac

Eufy Robot Vacuum

A lot of you told us about this Eufy brand and if you’re looking for more of a “save” version I highly recommend! It has been such a game changer for my husky hair filled house. xo Katy

Ashley’s Juicer

Juicer [currently on sale!]

Hey, hey! Ashley, here 🤗 I wanted to share one of my favorite kitchen appliances with you today…our juicer! I saw the juice storage bottles Lauren posted and had to add to my cart for all of the delicious mixes we come up with using my Oster juicer. Since taking a much bigger interest in our health this year, I have been using this baby a couple times a week. The best part is the super easy self clean setting that makes the usual mess of juicing not so bad! If you’ve been thinking of getting your own juicer, I highly recommend checking this one out soon. Also please share your favorite fruit/veggie mixes with me! I’m always looking for new options to try ☺️

Stone Diffuser / Santal Oil / The Hotel Oil

Diffuser / Santal Oil / The Hotel Oil

Your home will be smelling like a 5 star hotel in no time with this oil duo! I’ve used these two together and separate and my house always smells amazing, even with two kids and two dogs! The stone diffuser is so chic and luxe and great quality!

Magnetic Measuring Spoons

Magnetic Measuring Spoons

My life is been since these guys have arrived! Gone are the days of searching high and low for my measuring spoons! I’ve owned them for several years and they are still in great shape! I also love that they have a wet and dry measuring side! xoxo Hannah

Olive Oil Dispenser

Olive Oil Dispenser

Gone are the days of pulling out the ugly bottle of oil or rummaging the cabinets to find it! This oil dispenser is chic, well made and does the job!

iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO

iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO

Roomba Our OG Roomba form several years ago bit the dust, and after the first two days of using this new self-emptying Roomba, I was BLOWN AWAY. What a difference an upgrade can make! This Roomba maps your whole home, and then will work it’s way inch by inch in nice lines, will get itself back to home base when it’s low on power [and continue on once it’s charged up], and self-empties itself each and every time! WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE, FRIENDS!  

Large Round Mirror

Mirror [size 36×36 in black] / Cabinets [shown with 2]

I love this large round mirror so much, I’ve actually bought it for a few spots in our home [and a few sizes]! It’s a rubber edging so it won’t scratch your walls, and a great size for the price! Highly recommend!

Water Bottle Organizer

Water Bottle Organizer

This water bottle organizer has to be one of my ALL-TIME favorites. It’s a game changer for our cabinet organization game, and no more searching and searching for the water bottle I’m looking for!

Glass Table Lamp

Glass Table Lamp / Side Table / Coaster[set of 4] / Bedtime Tea / Heated Neck Pillow

These are a few of my favorite[bedtime] things! I’ve been looking for the perfect side table, I went with this one as it was a farmhouse rustic vibe I was into. The glass lamp adds the perfect touch too! Tuck me in with my favorite bedtime tea with my neck pillow, sweet dreams friends!

Electric Tea Kettle

Electric Tea Kettle / Coasters[set of 4]

I’m on a tea kick and I don’t plan on coming off it anytime soon! I love that this electric tea kettle can quickly boil water under 3 minutes! Small but oh so mighty, this lady gets the tea drinking game turned on!

Ninja DuelBrew Coffee Maker

Ninja DuelBrew Coffee Maker / Coffee Filters / Coffee Grinder

I was the chronic “the coffee shop was on the way” person (even if on the way meant 20 minutes OUT of the way to where I was going), until I got this machine last Prime Day! What’s so great about it? Let’s start with the three brew options! Regardless of if I’m craving regular, bold or iced coffee – this machine can do it! Next – it can brew from pods OR grounds for all three brew styles [disclosure, we did discover that the hot chocolate/chai type of pods don’t work on the iced setting]. I recently took my at home coffee to the next level by grinding my own beans, since this machine makes it so easy to use grounds. YUM! There’s a handy little scoop that fits right into the left side that tells you just how much to use, whether you’re making a cup or a carafe. Because yes, you can choose between those options as well! SO. MANY. CHOICES.

Creative Co Op Pillows

Green Velvet Pillow / Plaid Pillow / Rug

Creative Co Op is always my go-to when it comes to pillows and pillow covers! I love the fun pops of color that this green velvet pillow and plaid pillow add to our home!

Utensils / Brushes / Dutch Oven / Mixing Bowls

Stainless Steel Utensils / Cleaning Tools / Dutch Oven / Mixing Bowls

Welcome to our lil kitchen! From utensils and spices to mixing bowls and dutch oven, these shelves are the hub of our kitchen! We received these mixing bowls and this dutch oven as a wedding gift and they are both MUST-HAVES in my opinion!

Large Frame / Small Frame / Mirror / Gold Jewelry Holder

Large Frame / Small Frame / Mirror / Gold Jewelry Holder

The sweetest additions to our bedroom dresser! Love the little flare these frames add to our room and the sweet moments that they remind me of!

Amazon Shelves

Rug / Shelves

Say hello my home office! This nook is my safe haven and really allows me to stay focused “at work” even when I am in the comfort of my own home! These shelves have even been in two of our homes and have held up perfectly!

Amazon Gold Dome Lamp

Lamp / Vase

Even despite my style changing over the years, these lamps have always stayed the same! They have a modern look but keep our space feeling nice and cozy. I love the look and the price of them! I get asked where I got them all the time from friends and family!
