Me: “I need to stop buying things on Amazon.” Also me: *hits “Add To Cart” for the fourth time today* 

What can I say… I’m a sucker for two-day shipping, having everything I could possibly need on one website, and being able to stock up on my favorite essential/not-so-essential items without having to leave the comfort of my bed. But with a quick review of my ever-growing list of great Amazon finds, I am reassured and once again question, “Why ruin a good thing?” 

This month, I surveyed some trusted Amazon stans (my fellow coworkers) to bring you all some of the best Amazon finds that we treated ourselves to this month. From chic furry slipper slides to resistance bands that’ll help you get fit AF, we’ve got your next impulsive “Add To Cart” moment covered.

Classic Can Tumbler Glasses

Not to be too dramatic but these tumbler glasses might be my favorite part of every morning. When I saw them featured by a fellow apartment dweller on TikTok, I found my way to Amazon in record time. Not only are they great quality and serve as the perfect home for my iced matcha lattes, but they’re aesthetically pleasing which is always a win in my book.

The Five Minute Journal

After months of hearing my friends, coworkers, and influencers rave about The Five Minute Journal, I finally pulled the trigger on buying one myself. I’ve always loved the idea of journaling but, on busy days, it’s really hard for me to get my pen to paper and spend time journaling with intention. This method of journaling is brief, helps you to set your tone for the day, is designed to help you improve your outlook on life. I’ve been loving using it and now, I’m one of those people who rave about The Five Minute Journal, too.

Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle

I lost my emotional support water bottle about a month ago and, instead of replacing it, I did some research and wanted to test out a new one. I love this new insulated water bottle so much that it truly makes me look? forward? to? drinking? water? This water bottle is the perfect size for cup holders, keeps my water ice cold for hours on end, has a handle that allows me to take it anywhere I go, and has a protective push-to-open lid that keeps the built-in straw clean.

Good Buy Gifts

Diana The Huntress Bust

You know those days when you just want an update to your apartment, like NOW? I found this affordable bust on Amazon with free one-day shipping (thank you, Prime!) and knew I had to have it. I high-key stan the bust trend circulating on Instagram, but since I don’t have room in my budget for expensive busts (ah, to have a bust budget!), so I was so excited to find this Amazon item that looks just as good as the pricier options. I put it on my media console and it immediately made my living room a little trendier, chicer, and elegant.

Breville

Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine

I had been resisting a Nespresso for year: there’s no reason to buy a new coffee machine when I have a perfectly good Keurig, right? Wrong. When it came on sale on Amazon, I knew it was my sign to take the plunge, and I have never looked back. I learned that yes, there is a huge difference between coffee machines, and the price of a nicer one is well worth it. I’m now DIYing americanos, lattes, and iced coffees on the reg, like the fancy coffee queen I deserve to be. My only regret: not indulging in frothy and delicious coffee sooner.

IPOW

Peloton Desk Tray

When I started working from home, my fitness routine took a bit of a hit since I was no longer walking to work, burning calories on the job, or stopping at my yoga studio on my way home. This product has transformed my workouts by allowing me to cycle while working on my laptop. I attach it to my Peloton, but it works with other stationary bikes too. I try to get an hour of biking in during the day and usually end up cycling about 10 miles while doing the work I normally do at my desk - definitely a game changer.

Setex

Anti-Slip Nose Pads for Eyeglasses

This completely unglamorous purchase is something that has completely changed my day-to-day life—and I mean that. I have a straight nose bridge that glasses love to slide down, especially in the summer when sweat is thrown into the equation. I ordered these in an effort to prevent pushing my sunglasses up my nose every five seconds during summer, and they have worked like an absolute dream. Not only do the tiny pads make glasses much more comfortable, but they completely prevent them from moving, even when you’re dripping sweat. This pack came with enough that I put them on all of my regular glasses and sunglasses—they’re the best $10 I’ve spent in a long time.

Wellike

Freshwater Pearl Beaded Necklace

Beaded necklaces are a huge summer trend, and I loved the idea of having one to mix some color into my necklace stack—but didn’t want to break the bank. This one is adorable and could’ve absolutely fooled me as a much more expensive version. I’ve been wearing it constantly and it was a perfect winner of an Amazon fashion find.

— Maddie, Fashion Content Manager

Foloda

Bed Sheet Fasteners

Another completely unglamorous find that has completely changed my daily frustrations, these bed sheet fasteners have kept my sheets tight and right every second since I got them. I’m a tosser and a turner and was incredibly sick of waking up to my fitted sheet sliding off my mattress every single day, and these prevent them from moving even slightly. They take maybe two minutes to throw on all four corners and keep my bed perfectly made until I take them off.

Premium Shoe Cleaner

For anyone who wears sneakers, this cleaning kit is a MUST. BUY. I’ll admit, I don’t take the best care of my shoes but when I find a pair I love, I wear them to death. After avoiding my favorite pair of Adidas sneakers for over a year because they were so dirty I couldn’t even bear to look at them, I finally caved and cleaned them. (Yes, when it comes to housekeeping chores like this I adopt an avoid-at-all-costs-until-the-last-possible-moment approach.) I had actually purchased this cleaning kit awhile back but was almost out. Once I was reminded of how it returns my shoes to their sparkling best, I immediately went over to Amazon to restock. My entire shoe collection is about to get a makeover, and it only cost 16 bucks.

Apple Brand

Leather Cleaner & Conditioner Kit

I was inspired by this article to give my handbag collection a little TLC. There's a reason this brand has a cult-following with purse aficionados and it lives up to all the hype. So far I've only used it on my newer bags, but I can't wait to spend a Saturday reviving some of my old favorites that have been hanging out in the back of my closet.

Freckles Mark Store

Cat Eye Glasses

I bought these glasses on a whim because one can never have too many sunglasses strewn about during summer. Since then, I've received so many compliments when I wear them that I almost feel guilty I only paid $18 for the set. The matte black pair looks high end without the $$ price tag. They are very oversized (which I love), so if you have a smaller face or aren't a fan of that look, make sure to check out the photo reviews.

FAVORITES FROM LAST MONTH

Amazon

Water Resistant Tote

I really wanted a medium-sized tote bag that I could bring around to all of my summer activities—whether that be a picnic, a day of running errands, a trip to the beach, or something where I might need a quick change of clothes. I scoured Amazon for far too long before landing on this one, but it has been everything I was looking for. It's perfect for packing up a picnic blanket, book, snacks, and wine, and it's easy to carry on my shoulder. I got it in a solid light purple color, but there are tons of cute colors and patterns available.

Amazon

Tub Stopper

As someone who lives in an apartment, I don't have the luxury of a super fancy bathtub where I can take the baths that I dream about. However, I did want to be able to take baths in general, but my tub does not have a way to stop the drain. I did a quick search on Amazon to find something that could plug the drain and found these, which have thousands of five-star reviews. They work great and are perfect for apartment-dwellers like me.

— Jessica, Junior Graphic Designer

Amazon

Clear Shoe Organizers

I kept my shoes on a rack in my closet for YEARS. My shoes collected dust like no one’s business, the rack always fell apart, and I was stuck in an endless cycle of organizing my shoes on the rack, getting annoyed, just tossing them in the closet, and then reorganizing. I finally decided to do something about it and got these clear shoe boxes from Amazon. They stack neatly and open from the front, so my shoes stay dust-free AND it’s super easy to keep them organized. I’m very much not exaggerating when I say these shoe boxes are my favorite quarantine purchase.

Amazon

Laptop Lap Desk

Listen: I love my desk. I have a small vase I put flowers in, a bunch of little knick-knacks, a sweet monitor setup, and a light I can set to any color I choose. But I probably only sit there about 60 percent of my work day. I like to migrate. I’ll sit at my dining table, in my reading chair, on my couch, wherever the wind takes me. I had been wanting a lap desk for quite some time and finally decided to just go for it. I truly don’t know why I waited so long, but this lap desk seriously makes my days so much better. I no longer have to deal with my laptop overheating on my lap and it also has a nifty holder I can put my phone in so I don’t constantly lose it between couch cushions or in the black hole that is my favorite chair.

Amazon

Scuba Slide Sandal

When I tell you that I did some serious damage beefing up my summer wardrobe this month, I mean it. I purged old items I didn’t want and made a list of what I wanted to replace, and one of the items on that list was poolside slides that I could wear while running errands during the summertime. I originally found these slides on DSW’s website where they didn’t have my size but luckily, Amazon pulled through and had the exact same pair in the correct size in stock. They’re wildly comfortable and will be the perfect go-to slide for short walks around town and when I’m chilling at the beach or pool.

— Ashley, Contributing Writer

Amazon

Pasta Bowls

Are you really an adult if you don’t have every type of bowl under the sun? Under this theory, up until a month ago, I wasn’t. My previous go-to bowls were a lot deeper but, at the same time, pretty damn small. AKA, mixing my salads in said bowl was a nightmare (picture: shreds of kale and sweet potatoes hopping out without warning) while my surface area for cheese on my pasta was little to none. I didn’t know that I needed these bowls so much until I actually started using them. They’re shallow but have a larger diameter, which makes them the perfect plate/bowl combo I didn’t even know I needed.

— Ashley, Contributing Writer

Amazon

Workout Top

I was inspired by our editor Ashley and my newfound appreciation for the one-piece workout top to try this, and I am loving it so far. I don't have time to grab a sports bra AND a top before I do a workout, but I really don't feel comfortable just wearing a sports bra (beyond the body image of it all, it's just annoying to constantly pull down!). This solves all of those issues while looking really cute, and it just so happens I already had leggings in a few of these colors, so they look like sets!

Amazon

Rolling Laundry Cart

I just moved to a new unit in my apartment building, which is a high-rise with a big laundry room on the top floor. In my previous apartment, I had the ratty, old hamper I'd used for years that made me never want to walk upstairs to do my laundry. And I mean it... never. So when I moved, I knew I had to opt for something that would be easy to take up and down, even if I had a hefty amount of clothes in it. Plus, my closet is totally visible, so I needed it to look somewhat presentable. I opted for this because the wheels would be easy to pull down the hallways, and I was right! I've done my laundry more in the last month than I did in the last six at my old place. Success.

Amazon

SweatBlock Deodorant Lotion

Summer is my least favorite season for one reason, and one reason only. Once the temperature creeps above 75 degrees my entire body melts into a sweaty mess reminiscent of the 1980s classic character Swamp Thing. I’ve tried really cute solutions like body powder or deodorizing sprays to no avail. One thing that HAS shown promise is an aptly named body deodorant called Man Parts. It’s a talc-free lotion-to-powder formula that you can apply… wherever. Initial results have been strong, but I’ll have a better sense of how it performs when Manhattan returns to sweat lodge status in August. Note: Apparently they make a “Lady Parts” version, but I’ve already committed.

Amazon

Letter Print Tee

This oversized boxy tee is the perfect dupe for an Anine Bing tee. Anine, if you’re reading this just know I find you impossibly chic, but I have a mortgage. Bonus: this shirt feels nicer than your standard $20 tee. As for sizing, they mean it when they call it oversized. I would say for a slightly-loose-tuck-in-your-jeans moment, go true to size. If you want an oversized-halfway-to-your-knees-TikTok-youth moment, go up a size.

Amazon

Jolly Egg

I saw this toy on TikTok and immediately purchased it. Like all good TikTok trends it was sold out and I had to wait a few weeks for it to come in. If you’re in the same position when you click over, let me just affirm that IT IS WORTH THE WAIT.

So, what makes this dog toy so special? The hard plastic material and shape means that it’s impossible for your dog to pick up—but that doesn’t stop them from trying. Our 16lb dog goes nuts chasing it across the floor and we have to eventually take it away so she doesn’t collapse from exhaustion. The only downside? It’s incredibly loud. Not the kind of toy you want them playing with if you’re on a zoom call in the other room. But if a little noise doesn’t bother you, 30 minutes can equal complete exhaustion so afterwards you can watch Real Housewives in peace.

Amazon

The Laundress Fabric Fresh

The most simple description of this product is “bougie bitch Febreeze”. The scent is a light clean laundry smell that’s not overly-chemical like other fabric refreshers. Yes, the fragrance is light but I personally think that's what makes it fancy lady and not air freshener explosion. I like to spray it on the sheets before guests arrive, on a shirt that I probably shouldn't be rewearing for the fourth time, or on the couch when I can tell my dogs have been lounging on it.

— Allyson, Editor-in-Chief

Amazon

Jute Beach Tote

We are frequent beach goers in the summer, so I purchased this as an upgraded tote to take with me. It’s cute and incredibly easy to get sand out of. I also just appreciate any item that makes me look put together when I’ve been sweating and swimming. I went with the large and it’s smaller than our normal beach bag that can hold supplies for multiple people. This is very much a one human bag or a two low-maintenance humans bag. Alas, I am one high-maintenance lady so I use it as more of a purse replacement than a large catchall.

— Allyson, Editor-in-Chief

Amazon

Queen Beach Cup Holder with Pocket

Speaking of the beach, these are another favorite at my house. They may look like a simple cupholder, but the size and spot for your cellphone make these revolutionary for a day lounging at the beach. I don't know why Amazon insists on selling them in a six pack, but it does give you backups for when your friends inevitably swipe one because they love it as much as you.

— Allyson, Editor-in-Chief

Amazon

Loctite Mounting Putty

I cannot speak to the mounting quality of this putty because I use it to clean my Airpods. Yes, you read that correctly.

Without getting too graphic, you warm the putty up in your hands and then roll it over the speaker part of your Airpod. It magically pulls out the dirt and earwax in those tiny spots that you can't get with a wipe. The magic can only be compared to the Oxyclean commercials that would run at every ad break when you were home sick from school and watching daytime television.

I've since used it to clean out my cellphone charging port and it works just as well.

— Allyson, Editor-in-Chief

Amazon

Motivational Water Bottle

Other than coffee, my Brita filter is the only beverage source I regularly keep in my fridge. My water intake has never really been a problem, exactly, but I wanted to make sure I was drinking at least two liters each day, rather than sipping on the same glass for hours at a time and forgetting to refill. Enter: one of my favorite recent purchases. I love having this bottle to help keep me accountable and, most importantly, hydrated.

— Garri, Managing Editor

Amazon

Fabric Resistance Bands

Fabric resistance bands have been on my “to buy” list since I hastily ran to the nearest Target at the beginning of the pandemic looking for workout equipment. I snatched up a set of rubber resistance bands and a pair of pink dumbbells, ready to adapt my workout routine for the stay-at-home order. Unfortunately, I realized almost right away the rubber booty bands weren’t going to cut it. After approximately one (1) use, I knew I simply could not deal with them constantly rolling up during my workouts. After not touching them for a year, I finally upgraded to these fabric bands and I could not be happier. The fabric prevents them from rolling up in the middle of my workouts and I love the different resistance levels. Bonus: they also come with a small case to help keep your workout-from-home setup organized.

Amazon

Marble Foam Roller

One of my most fatal flaws in life is that, despite knowing the benefits of foam rolling, I avoid it like the plague. Part of the reason that I dislike it is that, after an hour or more at the gym, I don’t necessarily want to stick around for an extra 20 minutes to get the job done. Before this purchase, I didn’t have one for myself and, naturally, I sustained a minor injury to my right hip that kept me from my gym routine for a few days. And what did my physical therapist urge me to do? Rest, foam roll, and let my body heal. So, I opened my Amazon app, pulled the trigger on this cute, apartment-friendly, marble-colored foam roller, and am vowing to make foam rolling a priority in my future routine.

Amazon

No Slip Claw Clip

I finally hopped on the rebirth of these claw clips and, let me tell you: These ones boast the perfect size, color assortment, and grip. I almost always have one in my hair and it’s the quickest way to pull myself together before any Zoom meeting or Trader Joe’s run.

— Ashley, Contributing Writer

Amazon

Rectangle Retro Sunglasses

Spring is finally here and after a few months of gloomy skies, I’m looking forward to sunny days ahead. This season, I’m opting for these super trendy sunnies that are impressively affordable. If there’s one lesson that I’ve learned after about 15 times of making the same mistake, it’s that designer sunnies and I just don’t mix. Cue me sitting directly on my Ray-Bans, hearing a devastating crunch, and stating, “This is why we can’t have nice things.” If any damage is done to these Amazon ones, I won’t feel as much shame because 1) they come in a pack of two and 2) they are inexpensive AF.

— Ashley, Contributing Writer

Amazon

Athletic Running Shorts

I have never been a huge fan of shorts and that dislike also applied to exercise shorts until I ordered these. Not only do they not pinch me anywhere but they truly do not ride up! The longer layer compression piece stays put while the outer layer is a bit flowier so you don’t feel hugged in any of the wrong places. I was extra excited to see that the tech pocket in the compression shorts held my phone in place without any discomfort. Win-win in my book and 5 stars for these shorts.

— Ally, Chief of Sales and Marketing

Amazon

Straw Visor

With warm weather upon us and the damaging effects of my teen years spent in a tanning bed rearing its ugly head, this visor checks all of the boxes for me in my quest to achieve sun safety this season. I love the packable feature (it rolls in the tiniest crease-free ball), the wide brim that fully covers my entire face, and the sweet bow detail at the back makes it feel more grand millennial vs. plain granny. If you are looking to keep the sun off of your face without the consequence of hat head this visor is for you!

— Ally, Chief of Sales and Marketing

Amazon

Facial Massage Ice Roller

I’ve always been obsessed with ice rolling the face for a variety of benefits. After a good ice rolling, my skin immediately looks glowier, less puffy, and I swear my pores seem smaller (oh, and any breakouts seem less noticeable too). Plus, I love using a roller on my neck and shoulders to relieve any neck tension and help with headaches. Sure I already had an ice roller, but when I saw this one that was way cuter (and super affordable) I knew it was time for an upgrade. Plus, the hinges don’t freeze like with other ice rollers I have, so even if you keep it in the freezer 24/7, it will still roll easily.

Amazon

Furry Slipper Slides

Full disclosure: I have very few shoes that slip on. My closet is full of booties, sneakers, or even lace-up sandals, but I have never owned many slip-on shoes. As soon as slides became cool again, I knew I had to invest in a pair, both for fashion and my own convenience. There is no shoe better for running errands or taking the dog outside (AKA grabbing the leash and running when you know it’s an emergency). I stumbled upon these of-the-moment trendy slides with fur and I knew I had to have them. They are now officially my go-to pair of shoes for any OOTD or occasion, and they’re under $20, which means I got them in multiple colors.

— Josie, Wellness Content Manager

Amazon

Neoprene Dumbbell

I first purchased these weights in the 10 lb. variation in the middle of a workout when I realized I would absolutely perish if I didn’t get a new set of weights, and these were practically the only 10 lb. weights available on the Internet. Then a few weeks later, I ordered the 2 lb. set to use in pilates, barre, and yoga sculpt classes. I can’t say too much about these because they are simply weights, but they’re hella affordable and actually available to ship for the first time in one full year.

— Beth, Beauty Content Manager

Amazon

16-Piece Cookware Set

When I moved into my first apartment, I was all about budget. I bought the absolute cheapest version of every single thing someone might need because I was in college and had approximately $76 to my name at all times. Well, this past January, I realized I somehow was still using the cheapest pots and pans known to man, three years later. I found these on Amazon (admittedly because I was looking for pink pots and pans), and I love them. They were still quite budget-friendly for how many pieces it comes with, but the quality is eons better than what I was using before. I also love the colorful look—it gives me an excuse to leave pots and pans on my stove at all times in the name of ~aesthetics~ instead of pure laziness.

— Beth, Beauty Content Manager

Amazon

Dishwasher Magnet

For some reason, we’ve all just accepted that if you live with another human then you’ll constantly find yourself asking (or being asked) if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty. I spotted this $7 find at a friend’s house, and even after pressing purchase I had a pang of guilt that this wasn’t really needed. Well, five months later and I am ready to shout my love for this little gadget from the rooftops. It comes in black or silver so it blends seamlessly in with your appliances which helps it look more expensive than it is.

Amazon

Adhesive Mount Cabinet Storage Organizer

You can also file this purchase under “lame things that make me incredibly happy”. My husband and I live in a historic home with approximately one closet, no pantry, and limited cabinets. This means we have to get incredibly creative with our storage solutions. Even though I’ve already done the full Home Edit treatment on most of our house, these little containers are a new touch of happiness for me. They have adhesive strips so you can add them to almost any cabinet or door. I added one under the sink for dishwasher pods and the second close to where we keep our vacuum cleaner so I could easily access the charging cord and attachments. After only a week with them, I got back on Amazon and bought three more sets.

Amazon

Mini Dress with Ruffle Sleeves

I live in the south so summer is absolutely BRUTAL. Until November 1, you just accept that you’ll be covered in sweat anytime you leave the comfort of air conditioning. When I saw this dress on Jacey Duprie’s instagram a few weeks ago, I immediately added it to my cart. It hits my most important qualifications for summer clothing: light fabric, loose fit, hides sweat, and looks like you’re dressed up but with maximum comfort. I’m a size 8, so I ordered a medium (the size range listed for medium was 8-10) and I found it to fit perfectly loose. If you’re more on the small/medium size (like a 6-8), I would suggest sizing down as the dress has little to no shape. Some of the reviews note that it can be a bit short, so if you’re taller than 5ft 6 in, diligently check the dimensions before purchasing. Let’s be real: this is a $27 potato sack dress from Amazon. I’m not here to tell you it’s high quality by any means. But it’s easy to throw on with a pair of sandals and I’ll likely purchase this in a few more colors.
