Saving money can be difficult. With so many online stores available at your fingertips, staying home is no longer an effective way to curb excessive spending. So instead of letting my inner impulse shopper roam free, I’ve decided to limit my purchases to all the clever products you can find on Amazon.

While the restraint has certainly helped my bank account grow back into the black, it’s also opened my eyes to all the genius inventions that Amazon has to offer. If your keyboard is littered with crumbs and dust, don’t try scraping away at it with a knife. Instead, use the cleaning gel I’ve added to this list — you can mush it into tight spots to help get rid of dirt and grime. Or maybe you like to go hiking with your dog? In that case, I’ve made sure to include a convenient water bottle that’s designed for your pup. Not only is it leakproof, but it also features a built-in bowl that makes it easy for your pooch to lap up water.

But that’s not all — there are also portable door locks, foot cleansing pads, and even a handy board that makes it easy to fold your shirts uniformly. So what are you waiting for? Most of these products are straight-up genius, and all of them are certainly fascinating.

Each pack comes with two pairs of exfoliating booties.
