I'm self-employed, and because of that, my time is literally money. I love my job (it means I get to work from my bed in my pajamas), but it also means I need to be really aware of my time so I can make money and get things done. That means I'm always looking for little products that make my life better and help me get things done faster. Naturally, that never-ending search leads me to the black hole of the internet, where I've found a ton of Amazon products that will change your life.
Let's face it: Life is rough, and we should take advantage of all the hacks we can get. Whether that's a beauty product that actually works the first time (like a drying lotion for acne) or a pair of silicone gloves that keeps hands dry while washing dishes.
I even use products I've found on Amazon to ensure my travels go more seamlessly. Now, I never leave home without packing cubes, a backpack that has a separate pocket for my laptop, or my clear plastic toiletry case, which makes getting through airport security so much faster. These products might seem pretty basic, they really do make a huge difference.

I love hummus. Sometimes I think I'm an addict. I like to buy huge tubs of it, but then I feel bad when I double dip, so I usually throw some on a plate with veggies or pita chips.

Just fill them up with your favorite dip and enjoy snack time that much more.

I'm old school. I prefer a block of butter to that "spreadable" butter you can buy at grocery stores. Unfortunately, that means it can be much harder to cut through it.

You don't have to heat it up, it just transfers the heat from your hand to the knife and slices right through. Yes. Yes, it is magic.
