Life is filled with a ton of little annoyances. Imagine how much happier you would be if you could eliminate just some of them. Fortunately for you, we’ve put together a list of Amazon products that could change your life. These items can be the solution you’ve been waiting for and can bring you that much closer to reaching true nirvana.

1. NTONPOWER 3-Port USB Power Strip

Somehow, every time I stay in an Airbnb or a relatives house, they have perfectly filled each electrical outlet in their home with essential devices. This power strip has its own cord which neatly folds against it when not in use. That way you don’t have to try and plug a heavy box into a socket.

2. Anker PowerCore Lite 10000mAh, USB-C Input

Phones keep getting faster and more capable, but we’ve seen few battery advances to fuel them. Luckily, this 10,000mAh charge pack is light and slim enough to fit in your pocket and holds multiple full charges for any phone on the market. Never spend a day worrying about your phone dying again.

3. Gerber Dime Multi-Tool, Black

How many times have you had to use your teeth or keys to open something, or encountered a single Phillips head screw that just begged to be tightened? The Gerber Dime is small enough to fit on a keyring but offers ten essential tools that can continuously be at your fingertips. Despite its minuscule appearance and low price, the Gerber Dime is sturdy and will become your constant companion as you take on taped boxes like nobody’s business.

4. Nintendo Switch

Video games are fantastic, but it’s hard to commit to a 60-hour journey as an adult. Fortunately, Nintendo has made it to where you can take your console with you. The Switch gives you the ability to game on the go, and when you get home, dock it and play it on your TV. It strikes a great balance between portability and fidelity, and there’s a reason why it’s on its way to being one of Nintendo’s best selling consoles.

5. Roku Streaming Stick+

The Roku Streaming Stick+ offers 4K HDR capabilities and all the streaming selections of a full-sized box in a very narrow, thin package. The Streaming Stick+ is probably the best device you can choose when it comes to making sure you can stream on the go and is small enough to fit in a purse.

6. Triangle Bed Sheet Fastener

Whoever invented the fitted sheet was really using the term loosely. No matter how good you get them tucked around your bed, it’s usually only a matter of a day or two before a corner starts popping up. Well, you can make a choice never to experience that again with the Triangle Bed Sheet Fastener. Just lift your mattress and attach the fasteners to all four corners and that’s it. You’ll never have to worry about that small annoyance ever again.

7. VELCRO Brand ONE-WRAP Thin Ties

Organizing cords is the bane of technophiles, but with the application of one of these Velcro wraps, it becomes easy. You can just loop it around the end of any cord, and when you wind up the wire, you can wrap the Velcro around it, and you’re done. These ties are sturdy and sticky, and they are incredible for turning those tangled masses into neat little circular piles.

8. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

Eggs are a healthy, versatile food, but they’re an absolute pain to cook. With an egg cooker, you can just let technology handle it all. No more sweating, staring at a pan of boiling water and hoping you didn’t cook the eggs too long. All you have to do is fill the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker with water, and let it take care of the rest. You can even make omelets with it.

9. Starfrit Rotato Express 2.0

Peeling potatoes is such a pain that it’s a stereotypical punishment for misbehaving soldiers. That’s all a thing of the past with the Starfrit Rotato Express. Plop a potato on it, lower the upper handle and set the blade, and bam, you’re like Patrick Swayze AND Demi Moore in Ghost at the same time. You’re not limited to potatoes either. Any fruit or vegetable that you can fit on the Rotato Express can get peeled.

10. Self Stirring Coffee Mug

In today’s fast-paced world, no one has time to stir their coffee. Today, though, you can choose not to live in a mucky coffee dystopia with this self-stirring coffee mug. This mug even has “Self-Stirring Mug” written on it so everyone can know you’ve come up in the world. It’s also insulated, so it keeps cold drinks cool and hot beverages warm.
