We like a lot. Every week, we spend hours scouring the internet to find the best products at the lowest prices to share with you. But there’s only one thing that makes an offer on a product even better: it solves a problem.

You probably already know that Amazon is full of items that meet both criteria. What you might not know is that Amazon has a secret section with awesome surplus items that you can get at a bargain. It’s got everything you need, but we’ve focused on items that can simplify, brighten, or just make your life a little easier, all at a massive discount.

We’ve searched through hundreds of products – from holiday gadgets to quirky items to make chilling out more relaxing – and picked our favorites. Scroll down to find hidden gems to help you around the house.

Non-stick cookware isn’t meant to last forever and if your set has seen better days, this is an amazing deal on GreenPan pots. They’re made of non-stick ceramic so whatever you’re cooking slides right off the pan.

“I have been using the GreenPan Padova Reserve 10 piece set for about 6 months and these pieces are a complete game changer,” shared one happy cook. “I ordered this larger sauté pan because the 2.8 quart size included in the set was not large enough for my family of 6. This one is the perfect size and wonderful as expected! I used to cringe when I thought of cooking eggs (and pretty much everything else!) because cleaning pans was such a nightmare… but not anymore. should be !” After 6 months of use I haven’t had any issues with food sticking and all my parts still look brand new. I can only recommend these products!

We love our furry friends, but if yours roams around the rooms, maybe you’d rather they didn’t, maybe a new, discounted dog door is in order.

“This gate is MUCH stronger than any other gate I’ve tried,” said one happy dog ​​owner. “I use it to get my big dog out of the hallway, and he’s jumped on it countless times, but he’s not moving!”

Whether you want to make candles and lip balm, or just want cute containers for Valentine’s Day treats, these little boxes are about as adorable as they come.

“These heart-shaped boxes were perfect for what I was looking for,” one rave reviewer shared. “I was doing lip gloss for Valentine’s Day gifts. They were the perfect size and well suited for my project.”

If there are soda drinkers in your house, this can organizer can be a serious game-changer when it comes to storage.

“Works for 12oz cans and can be stacked on top of each other or be 2 separate organizers,” one five-star fan reported. “I use it in my fridge and it makes it neater than trying to stack them and it’s a great space saver. I’ve started using one in my pantry to hold cans of soup 10.5 ounces.”

Looking for a way to expand your closet without tearing down a wall? This freestanding (read: sturdy) bamboo garment rack is 30% off right now.

“Ordered two, plus a larger one to complete a 2 person closet in an unfinished basement,” one five-star fan shared. “I was able to fit 80 shirts for my boyfriend’s coat rack. I put shirts and dresses on mine, but I still had to fold the longer dresses on the hangers because it didn’t is not super high.”

Stirring, scraping and spreading are so much easier with silicone cookware. If you are planning dinner parties, this set will definitely come in handy. Just ask any of over 2,500 five-star fans.

“I recently joined a food subscription service so I cooked more than usual,” one reviewer raved about. “I was using wooden utensils and they worked well but when you scrape the pan you don’t get everything because it doesn’t rest against the pan and when I hit the side of the pan with the wooden spoon , the pan started off chip. I love how you can scoop it all up and everything mixes so well. The best part is that they clean up very easily with soap and warm water.
