We love a good business and there’s only one thing a business can make better: it solves a problem. You probably already know that Amazon is filled with items that meet both criteria, but what you might not know is that there is a secret section of awesome overstock that can simplify your life, clean it up, or just make it that little bit easier – at a massive discount price.

We’ve combed through hundreds of products – from colorful knives to closet organizers – and picked out our favorite items. Scroll down to find hidden gems that can help you around the house.

If you’re looking for a quick solution to your cluttered closet, these sturdy hangers are designed to hold up to five blouses, dresses or pants neatly.

“Love this concept for organizing your closet,” wrote one. “These worked really well and freed up so much space in my closet. They’re pretty sturdy for the price. I’m already excited about this purchase as these hangers have made life a little less stressful when it comes to finding clothes and make my closet look so beautiful.”

For a warm meal outdoors, this Dutch Oven would give everyone survivor candidate drooling. Not only does it function as a pot (with cute little legs to stand over a campfire), the lid doubles as a pan so you can roast whatever you fancy in the wild.

“Bought this for camping,” wrote one. “I use fire to cook all my meals and this thing is awesome. I’ve only used the lid for breakfast and used the pot to make campfire soup. If you buy this, be sure to treat it with oil every time you clean it to keep it from rusting. I can see this is the last pot I will ever buy. It will take me years.”

If you own a microwave, you know how messy it can get if you don’t cover your food. Paper towels or a slightly crooked lid sometimes work, but this food-safe silicone sleeve works all the time to prevent spills. But savvy Amazon shoppers have multiple uses for it.

“​​[I] Use it as a splatter guard in the microwave or to wash and strain fruit and veg,” he shared. “Very easy to clean. Collapsible to make it even smaller. It can even be used to cover plates when setting up a grill. Buy a few. Put them where you can see them and make the most of them.”

There are many reasons to love these knives – not just because they are colorful! To avoid cross-contamination, you can color-coordinate them for whatever chopping job you do, and they all come with sleeves for safety, but buyers have a variety of reasons to appreciate them.

“Honestly I just wanted a good set of knives as I’ll be starting over after my divorce!” shared one. “These knives are amazing! Sharpness is out of this world. They are sturdy and well made! I love her. Be careful…they cut through practically everything!!”

This dish drying rack is perfect for small kitchens. It saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water and rolls up for easy storage.

“Ooooh I scored big on Valentine’s Day this year!” wrote one. “My wife loves it. She likes tidiness in her kitchen and is terrible at leaving things on the counter to dry. This little baby packs easily and rolls out for use, allowing all plates/pots/pans to be held over the sink. It can be a good space saver as you can use the area above your sink. Also works well as a refrigerated shelf. So easy to use and yet so powerful.”

To dress up an empty corner, put all your knick-knacks on display with this floating shelf.

“I bought two of these for a small space in my toilet room,” one shared. “The wood was a little light so I stained it to match my existing wood accents. It turned out a little darker than I was hoping for but they still look and work perfect! I love the size and the look!”
