You have to admit: Shopping’s fun, but it’s even better when the products you’re shopping for are helpful in one way or another. I’m talking about the things that make your day-to-day routines a bit easier, whether that means loosening up a tight jar of pickles or getting a quick workout in without heading to the gym. Thankfully, I’ve rounded up some of the most useful items on the market, and they’ll have you asking, “Why can’t everything be as helpful as these Amazon products?”

Not only are these products helpful, but they’re also extremely clever.
