I'll admit it: Giving into impulse purchases is fun, but most of my spur-of-the-moment buys are random tchotchkes that wind up collecting dust in a corner somewhere. That's why instead of clicking "Buy Now" on every cool little thing I find, I've decided to stick to the clever Amazon products I know I'll use every day.

But what do I mean by "every day?" Exactly how it sounds: Every. Day. Not only are these products useful, but you'll find yourself reaching for them more often than once in a blue moon. There's a dish-drying rack that rolls out over your sink to help save counter space, as well as a smart water bottle that reminds you to stay hydrated. And don't even get me started on the portable garment steamer — because if I'm being honest, my clothes are always wrinkled until I zap 'em with some steam.

So whether you're bored and have some money to burn (lucky), or if you're in dire need of some non-slip hangers, there are tons of smart things on Amazon you'll wind up using all the time. Why not add a few to your cart while you're here?
