I don’t know how Amazon shoppers know when a thing is buy-it-now awesome. It’s like the hive brain sends out a message and everyone gets the signal and shows up to buy. And when that buzz happens, things start selling out, which seems to only juice the craze so it becomes more difficult to get that hot item when you want it.

Sometimes it’s a kitchen tool or a pet trick or a garden hack. And sometimes it’s the latest slick way to light your house without calling an electrician or spending much money. Sometimes it’s camping gear or a bike accessory. It’s hard to say what criteria the Amazon buzz needs to start a rush on something. But I do know this. When it’s in stock, buy it. Because it might not be there for long. Amazon keeps selling out of these 50 dope things and who knows when they will be in stock again.

Check it out and keep that “Buy Now” button handy.

10. These water bottle storage racks that stack for a tidier cabinet

Storing water bottles is a challenge in most kitchens. Because of their odd size, they often end up taking up more cupboard space than necessary.

And you can stack the racks to accommodate your entire collection.

Lightweight yet with just enough warmth, it can be used as a duvet insert or stand-alone comforter. It can also be machine-washed in a gentle cycle and tumble dried on low heat.

16. This huge collection of airtight food storage containers

You could organize your entire pantry with this big collection of 14 airtight storage containers. They come in four different sizes to accommodate everything from flour to snacks.

18. The coffee canister that keeps your beans fresh & handy

Store your expensive and delicious coffee beans or grounds in this canister to keep them fresh and at the ready next to the coffee maker. The airtight lid stops air from staling your beans, but a valve lets out the CO2 gas because it can create an acidic flavor in your cup.

There’s also a snake-like vacuum cleaner attachment to make sure you get it all out. Doing this chore regularly can also prevent fires so this is $11 well spent. The versatile connector fits most vacuums.

22. The much-loved ring toss game that looks like a surfboard

Want to keep your kids (or beer-drinking adults) entertained and content for an absurd amount of time? Mount this ring-toss game in the bar, game room, or outside and watch as they discover they absolutely must master it no matter how long it takes. (Humans are fairly predictable.) The premise is simple: Toss the ring at the hook till it catches. Sounds silly but it’s harder than it looks and strangely enthralling. There is also a bottle opener built-in to keep the kids in sodas and the adults opening those beers.

23. This 65-foot long roll of LED strip lights to customize your ambience

If you want to create decorative lighting elements all over your house, this big roll of 65 feet of peel-and-stick LED strip lights makes it easy.

You can also use them to cart laundry to the washing machine or files to your office. They each hold up to 65 pounds and the equivalent of four paper grocery bags of stuff. They come in three color choices.

26. This silicone dish-drying rack that folds up for storage

Instead of committing to a huge rack that eats up a significant portion of your counter, set this silicone dish drying mat down next to the sink instead. It has a raised edge to keep water from running off and onto the counters, the ridges lift dishes up so they dry, and the whole thing goes into the dishwasher for clean-up. It rolls up to store in a drawer when you want it out of the way. It also doubles as a trivet for hot pans.

27. This set of 4 wooden shirt organizers to streamline your closet

Create space in your closet, while organizing your wardrobe for easier dressing, with these four wooden shirt organizers. Just hang them horizontally from your closet rod to load six shirts onto them. The metal loops keep hangers from falling off.

If you love tea, don’t limit yourself to tea bags. This teacup with a tea infuser and lid makes it easy to brew one cup from loose tea leaves.

When it’s brewed, the lid makes a perfect place to set the strainer as it drips hot water and you drink your tea.

29. This espresso maker that makes barista-level coffee

This Italian espresso maker will have you feeling like you’re chilling in a Naples café. Made of stainless steel, this moka pot has an attractive chrome finish that looks good sitting on your stovetop. If you haven’t used this brewing method before, coffee is brewed by boiling water — pressurized by steam — passing through ground coffee. People tend to love moka pots for the rich, strong flavors they extract from coffee beans. “If you want espresso for two or three, fill the entire coffee basket,” one reviewer wrote. “The coffee will then be the traditional thick, rich espresso to satisfy 2-3 family members or guests.”

30. This clever touch-controlled lamp with 4 charging ports

This is the ideal desk or bedside table lamp because it’s small and cute, is easy to control with a touch, and has four USB charging ports built into the base.

31. The screen curtain that closes itself to keep bugs out

Hang this magnetic screen curtain in the door that leads to your yard, porch, or patio and upgrade your outdoor parties. The curtain allows people, even very young ones, and pets to come and go hands-free while stopping bugs from getting into the house. The sheer, mesh curtains are made of a fine screen that bugs can’t get through and the magnets that are sewn into the center seam grab each other to close it after someone goes through. It’s simple, brilliant, and installs in minutes.

32. The portable table tennis set that turns any table into a game

You can turn a dining table iyto a table tennis game table simple by extending the retractable net of this ping-pong set across it and clipping it to the sides.

33. This stainless-steel rolling pin that creates smooth dough every time

You’ll feel (and bake) like a professional pastry chef with this rolling pin.

With a length just over 15 inches, this pin also works well for pizza dough or larger batches. Before using, chill it in the fridge to help prevent butter in the dough from separating.

34. The soap-dispensing dish brush that solves all the pesky dish brush problems

This dish brush and stand is the one. Not only does the handle fill with soap so you can easily add suds to the dishwashing, but that soap doesn’t leak out of the brush end until you push a button. Brilliant! Also, the brush is great. It’s angled, has a scraper on the end for baked-on problems, and there are plenty of bristles of just the right stiffness. It also comes with a stand that’s designed to catch water drips so your counter doesn’t get wet and the brush gets dry.

To clean, just use mild soap and warm water.

37. This grippy opener that tackles jars of multiple sizes

This anti-skid jar opener is designed to de-lid any jar without a struggle. The grippy rubber interior holds firmly to the jar lid while you grip the handle, which lets you get some serious leverage on that stubborn lid. It can handle small jars and big ones, just choose the circle that fits best. Once you own this, you will never again have to wander the neighborhood looking for a beefy stranger who is willing to open a jar for you. It comes in two colors.

Whether you’re needing to keep drinks cool on a road trip or dips and cheese fresh at a picnic, these reusable ice packs will more than do the job. Once they’re frozen, they stay at 18º F for up to 48 hours. They’re also easy to use — just add water, secure the cap, and place in the freezer. These packs are capable of replacing 7 pounds of ice, saving you the trouble of handling cumbersome bags of ice and leaking coolers. “When we arrived home, and unpacked the cooler some 29 hours later, not only were my food items still cold or remained frozen, some items like a 1/2 gal of milk and a 1/2 gal of chocolate milk were slushy!” one reviewer raved.

39. An herb garden kit for your kitchen window so you have fresh herbs at the ready

This indoor herb garden kit has everything you need to do this. There are burlap pots for your plants to grow in, soil pucks to get the seeds started, plant markers, and — of course — basil, cilantro, chive, and parsley seeds. It even comes with instructions in case this is your first herb-garden rodeo.

This mushroom-shaped hair catcher is perfect for the job. Insert it into the drain and it will catch hair — while hiding it from your view — before said hair can do any damage. Just pull the strainer out occasionally to clean it off and you won’t need a plumber.

41. A salt lamp that creates the perfect warm glow at night

Himalayan salt lamps have been having a moment the past couple of years, and for good reason — this lamp emits a natural warm glow that makes your living space feel that much cozier. While scientists haven’t found any declarative research about the ability of salt lamps to ionize air, this lamp’s amber glow is soothing in itself. With a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, shoppers love that it comes with a dimmer to adjust brightness.

42. This drink dispenser that makes backyard parties look stylish

This mason jar drink dispenser is just one of those nice things to have around.

Designed with sturdy glass and a non-drip spigot, it holds up to one gallon. Paired with the metal stand, it also looks good as a table centerpiece. One reviewer creatively used it as a water dispenser in their bathroom for taking nighttime medications.

43. These handy wipes that help to quickly get rid of stains when they happen

Keep one of these stain remover wipes in your glove compartment, pocket, purse, or wallet and you will never have to walk into a meeting or face a date with a stain on your shirt.

There will be no evidence and no explanations required.

44. These clear plastic covers that help protect furniture from felines

Cats and furniture are, apparently, mortal enemies. And, unfortunately for your budget, the cats usually win their battles. These furniture protectors give the couch an advantage. Install them right over the tempting arms, back, or sides of the furniture your feline is out to get and suddenly that fabric is slippery and offers no purchase for claws. This is 10 cuttable pieces and they come with 60 twist pins (the kind upholsterers use) to attach the pieces firmly where you need them. You will barely notice them. Your cat will hate them.

45. This quick-heating tea kettle with a stainless steel infuser basket

Brewing up a quick cup of tea is about as easy as it gets with this whistling stainless steal kettle. Compatible with both gas and induction stovetops, it has a sturdy, five-layer construction of stainless steel, iron, and aluminum that allows it to heat up fast, with a spout that whistles to let you know when the water is boiling. And the best part of all is that the infuser basket makes it simple to brew just as much tea as you like.

46. A massive pretzel pool float for carefree lounging

The only thing better than snacks by the pool is perhaps snacks in the pool, and this gigantic pretzel float is the mess-free way to do it. The spacious PVC float is easy to inflate and deflate, and it comes with a repair patch kit just in case you need it. The brand also offers other float snacks, like a popsicle, a pizza slice, and even a banana.

With three speeds to choose from, you can go through your day in a hair-billowing wind or just a light breeze. It comes in two colors and recharges quickly via USB-C.

50. This slick, stainless steel kitchen scale for easier measuring

A digital kitchen scale is the tool you don’t think you need until you have one. Then you use it constantly. Be sure of your precise baking levels or even package weight to get the right postage. Just pull this little scale out of the drawer, hit a button (and the tare button to eliminate the bowl or plate from your calculations), and know — in ounces or grams — precisely how much things weigh. It’s waterproof, battery-operated, and fits easily in a kitchen drawer.
