The Best Random Amazon Finds

July 7, 2023

By:

Team LIY

Three years ago we were just dabbling in the world of Amazon – do people actually buy clothes here? Holy cow there is a lot of stuff! Wait, I can buy THAT on Amazon? And now here we are, basically using Amazon as our Google for any and all shopping that needs to happen. These days, it’s not uncommon for an Amazon package [or three] to arrive on our doorsteps a little too regularly. To our delivery drivers- we thank you!!

While we’ve most definitely had some major fails [um, please look at this sweater post], and we’re definitely learning how to find the good stuff along the away, we like to think that we’ve had some major Amazon wins. So this week, we’re sharing our all-time favorite Amazon purchases from over the years, from fashion and beauty to the most randomly successful finds. Today we’re rounding up those random miscellaneous items that we didn’t know we needed in our lives. You know, the things like anti-chafing balm and dog DNA tests. And if you haven’t had a chance to check out our monthly Amazon roundups including allllll the things, you can find them right this way!

PS we asked our LIY Amazon Finds and Fails Facebook Group what their all-time favorite Amazon purchases are, and they’re sharing them here!

Slice Box Cutter

Slice Box Cutter

I had no idea when I bought this box cutter for my husband for a stocking stuffer last year it would end up being one of my favorite items, but here we are. The blade won’t slice your fingers, however, it cuts through boxes perfectly. We keep it by our entry and use it every time a package arrives! Note: get the locking blade option, you’ll like it better!

LockNLock Veggie Tray

Eye Massager

Renpho Heated Eye Massager

One word of advice: buy yourself this eye massager and get ready to fall in love. It’s one of my favorite all-time favorite Amazon purchases as it provides a ton of relaxation [or relief from headaches]! The heat, light spa music, and temple massage is incredible! 

Starument Cordless Handheld Vacuum

Starument Cordless Handheld Vacuum

The chicest vacuum I’ll ever own! I keep this little powerhouse in my car and whenever she needs a good cleaning, I just whip it out and go to town! It fits in a cup holder, has 3 power settings, charges via USB, and sweeps up all of the dust and dirt in your car!

Satisfyer Pro

WARNING: This device is NSFW, aka Not Safe For Work [meaning, you may not want to open this link on work WiFi, around your kids, or in line at the local coffee shop. Or maybe you do. That’s up to you! You never know who’s day you may make!]. And now that we got that disclaimer out of the way…

Ladies, we’d like to introduce you to your bedroom’s new best friendThe Satisfyer Pro 2. If you’d asked us what would be one the most sold items over the past year or two, I guarantee we never would have guessed it to be, well, a sex toy. A vibrator. An “air-pulse clitoris stimulator” as the listing says. But now that we are proud owners, let’s just say, we can’t imagine a life without it.

Purse Hooks for Car

Purse Hooks

If you still haven’t hopped on the purse hook wagon, this is your sign! It’s one of those things you didn’t know you needed! My totes and work bags aways managed to end up on the floor [maybe I need to take it easy on the brakes, but that’s neither here nor there 😉 ] and this little guy saves the day! I love that it comes in several colors to match your car interior!

Purse Organizer

Purse Organizer

I recently purchased my first designer handbag [eek YAY!] and wanted something to keep it organized as well as protected. I ordered this purse organizer insert available in five sizes with THIRTEEN pockets. Game changer, life saver. For reference, I have the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM and the Xtra Large size insert fits perfectly. It easily fits a 13-in laptop, planner, chargers and everything in between!

Luggage Scale

Luggage Scale

If you’re traveling anytime soon, this luggage scale is a must-have!  A device that brings peace of mind while traveling is priceless (but this one is only $10!) If you’re someone who tends to overpack (or gets nervous at the airport scale- hi, me!) you need one in your life! You’ll never be the person re-organizing their suitcase in public again… thank me later. 😉 Happy travels!

Car Seat Cover for Pets

Car Seat Cover

Meet Oliver! 🐾 He likes to go for long joy rides in the car and slobber on the seats. (IYKYK 🤤) I ordered this waterproof car seat cover to keep slobber or muddy paws off the seats (a must-have in the winter!) and we’re loving it already! It’s under $30, available in several colors to match your car interior, great quality, and super easy to remove when it’s not in use!

Handheld Steamer

Handheld Steamer 

Things are getting steamy up in here! If you’re in the market for a handheld steamer, this one heats up in 30 seconds and gets the job done freaky fast! Sayonara wrinkles, see ya never!

Pickleball Net & Paddles

Portable Net / Paddles / Court Marker Kit

It’s pickleball season, ladies & gents! 🙌 We got our net, balls, and paddles all from Amazon! It’s such a fun activity for all ages! This portable net is super easy to set up and tear down + these court markers are great if you want to get technical! 😉

Grampa’s Weeder

Grampa’s Weeder

I feel like I’m really showing my age with my purchases from Amazon recently [lol] but I’ve been trying to find products that solve a problem for our family! This weeder was a fun little find that’s saved our backs AND our kids love using it! Never thought I would find pulling weeds fun but it is so satisfying pulling those suckers out with their root!

Resistance Work Out Bands

Resistance Bands

Resistance bands have intensified my workouts significantly but the elastic ones always make my hands smell bad and ALWAYS curl in the middle of my workouts! The quality of these bands is so nice! They don’t curl, stay put, and don’t make my hands smell bad!

Portable Heating Pad

Portable Heating Pad

Anyone else feel like they’re attached to their heating pad when that time of the month comes around… The worst part, outside of feeling like your insides might explode, is being attached to a cord and having to stick to one place. I spotted this portable heating pad on Amazon a couple weeks ago and couldn’t order it fast enough! Easy to use, warms up, vibrates, holds a charge and adjustable so it fits comfortably! Highly recommend this guy!

Cord Organizer

Cord Organizer

Ahhh I love a good before and after photo. I stared at this mess of cords by my bed for far too long. Thanks to this cord organizer my eyes can now breathe a sigh of relief!

AirTag Dog Collar

I can feel good and safe about knowing where my dog is at all times with this airtag collar! -Katy

Laptop Blue Light Screen Protector

Laptop Blue Light Screen Protector

Not a fan of wearing blue light glasses OR just have trouble remembering to put them on? This blue light screen protector has you covered already on your computer!

PB2 Powder

Kick N Play Piano

Kick N Play Piano

This little piano has to be my baby’s favorite toy by a landslide 🥳 “Purple monkeyyyy in a bubble gum treeeee” (if you know, you know 🤣) xo Katy

Houseplants

Real Watermelon Peperomia Plant // Pot (set of 4) // Potting Soil

Nothing brings me more joy than live green plants thriving in my home! It’s easy to pop a space with some green and I’m most excited for this new lady to join the kitchen table!

Guest Room Luggage Rack

Guest Room Luggage Rack // Wallpaper (peel & stick) SO EASY! // FloorPop [peel & stick] Tiles

Calling all homes with guest rooms, you need this!! This baby is sturdy and oh-so-cute! She holds a suitcase very well(just tested that with my last guests) and even has a sweet spot for shoes! This has been a great addition to my little guest closet and I know it will be used over and over again!

Velvet Hangers

Velvet Hangers

Move over classic plastic, the velvet hangers are coming in – and coming in HOT! I am so happy to have made the switch to these hangers! They hold my clothes better and I feel as though I can pack more items into my small closet just by using them as they seem to be slimmer than the classic plastic ones!

Anti-Chafing Balm

Anti-Chafing Balm

Ladies, meet your inner thighs’ new BFF. After using this anti-chafing balm for well over a year, I’m sold! I’ll be applying this under $10 product on the regular all summer long! Here’s to no more chafing!

Electric Tub Spin Scrubber

Electric Tub Spin Scrubber

WHOA baby, did I just actually enjoy cleaning the showers and tubs? Why yes I did! This electric tub spin scrubber made cleaning the hard-to-reach places a breeze without having to get in the shower or tub itself! With three interchangeable heads for different sizes/areas, you can clean scrub your whole space clean super easily! These can also be used in other areas like sinks, tile, and more! 

Portable Wall Charger

Portable Wall Charger

I’ve had several portable battery chargers over the years, but am always frustrated that the charging cord is different than the cord that connects to my phone, and if I lose that cord, I’m out of luck [which clearly I know from experience]! When I saw this portable charger that plugs right into the wall I was sold. No more misplacing cords, and I love the simple sleek design!

Shout Wipe & Go

Shout Wipe & Go

Sometimes late start day for school means breakfast out with mom. Sometimes breakfast out with mom means syrup on the shirt! Which one of us gets syrup on the shirt? Well… both. These Shout Wipe & Go packets are so great to keep in the car, purse, your desk – anywhere you may spill! They work GREAT, and have saved us from needing to change on more than one occasion!

Electronics Holder for the Car

Electronics Holder for the Car

For some reason, I refuse to own a minivan. I’m mostly happy with that life choice – until we take long road trips and I have no way to play movies without my kids holding individual devices and looking down the whole time. This electronics holder was a life saver on our recent vacation! It holds electronics of a variety of sizes, tilts and slides for the perfect view angle and is easy to install. My kids even put our Switch in there and played Mario Kart together!
