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

You probably already know that Amazon is full of items that fit both criteria. What you may not know is that Amazon has a secret section of great overstock items that you can get for a serious bargain. It’s packed with everything you need, but we’ve focused on the items that can simplify, brighten, or just make your life a little easier – all at a huge price reduction.

We’ve sifted through hundreds of products – from holiday-saving gadgets to quirky items to make lounging more relaxing – and picked out our favorite items. Scroll down for hidden gems to help around the house.

Non-stick cookware isn’t meant to last forever and if your set has seen better days, this is an incredible deal for GreenPan pans. They are made of ceramic with a non-stick coating, so that everything you cook slides out of 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,” one happy home cook shared. “I ordered this larger sauté pan because the 2.8 quart size in the set wasn’t big enough for my family of 6. This one is the perfect size and great as expected! I always cringed when I thought about cooking eggs (and just about everything else!) because cleaning the pans used to be such a nightmare… but not anymore. This is how cooking and cleaning should be!” After 6 months of use, I’ve had no problems with food sticking, and all my pieces still look brand new. I cannot recommend these products enough!

We love our furry friends, but if yours wanders into rooms you’d rather they didn’t, maybe a new discounted dog gate is in order.

“This gate is MUCH sturdier than probably any other gate I’ve tried,” shared one happy dog ​​owner. “I use it to keep my big dog out of the hallway, and he’s jumped on it countless times, but it won’t budge!”

Whether you love making candles and lip balm, or you just want cute containers for Valentine’s Day treats, these little tins are cute as can be.

“These heart-shaped tins were perfect for what I was looking for,” shared one rave reviewer. “I was making lip glosses for Valentine’s Day. They were the perfect size and great for my project.”

If there are soda drinkers in your home, this can organizer could be a serious storage game changer.

“Works for 12 oz cans and can be stacked on top of each other or be 2 separate organizers,” one 5-star fan reported. “I use it in my fridge and it keeps it neater than if I try to stack them and it saves a lot of space. I started using one in my pantry for 10.5 ounce cans of soup.”

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

“I ordered two along with a larger one to complete a 2-person closet in an unfinished basement,” one 5-star fan shared. “I was able to fit 80 shirts for my friend’s rack. I put on my shirts and dresses, but I still had to fold the longer dresses on the hangers because it’s not super long.”

Stirring, scraping and spreading is so much easier with silicone kitchen tools. If you’re planning dinner parties, this set will definitely come in handy. Just ask any of the more than 2,500 five-star fans.

“I recently joined a food subscription service, so I cooked more than usual,” reported one rave reviewer. “I used wooden utensils and it worked fine, but when you scrape the pan it doesn’t get all of it because it’s not flush against the pan and because I hit the side of the pan with the wooden spoon, the pan started to chip. I love how you can scoop it all up and it mixes so well. The best part is that they are very easy to clean with soap and warm water.”

A meat thermometer is not just for grilling. It takes the guesswork out of reheating leftovers, baking bread or making your favorite everyday chicken dish.

“So easy to use, quick to read,” one five-star fan raved. “Always feared undercooked poultry, but since I bought this, I’ve run out of dry chicken breasts – Hallelujah! I wish I had bought it years ago. Stores easily on the side of the fridge, within easy reach of the oven.”

Perfect for small kitchens, this dish drainer saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water. Bonus: It rolls up for easy storage.

“Ooooh, I scored big for Valentine’s Day this year!” wrote a loving husband. “My wife loves it. She likes order in her kitchen and letting things dry on the counter is terrible. This little baby is easy to store and roll out for use, and allows you to keep all the dishes/pots/pans over the sink. It can be a good space saver by letting you use the space above your sink. Also works well as a cooling rack. So easy to use and yet so stimulating.”

If you’re looking for ways to pack a hot lunch when you’re on the go, this insulated food pot is perfect for tossing up soups and stews. It is leak proof and comes with a carrying case.

“Keeps food hot!!” shared one happy shopper. Got it for my husband who works in construction and usually had to eat cold food for lunch. He loves it, he can now eat hot food on cold winter days, this makes him so happy. Love the wide opening on the jar to add food and easy cleaning.”

This little heater is just the right size to sit on a table or hide under your desk to keep your toes warm all winter long.

“This little heater can put it out! I have one in my home office and I bought this one for my adopted grandma when she was released from the hospital,” shared one happy shopper. “I love her so much and I wanted her to stay nice and warm on cool days. I really appreciate that if it tipped it would turn off automatically. So in addition to keeping her warm, she’s also safe.”
