Amazon's secret overstock sale section is packed with problem-solving products, starting at $6

We LOVE a good deal. Every week, we spend hours combing the internet for the very best products at the lowest prices to share with you. But there’s only one thing that makes a deal on a product even better: it solves a problem.

You probably already know that Amazon is loaded with items that meet both criteria. What you might not know is that Amazon has a secret section with awesome overstock items that you can get at a serious bargain. It’s packed with everything you need, but we’ve zeroed in on the items that can simplify, clear up or just make your life a little bit easier — all at a massive markdown.

We searched through hundreds of products — from vacation-saving gadgets to quirky items to make lounging more relaxing — and picked out our favorite items. Scroll down for hidden gems to help out around the house.

KUHN RIKON Strain-Free Gripper Opener for Jars and Bottles

Designed to help you open jars and bottles without straining, the underside of this gadget has teeth to grip what ever lid you’re trying to remove.

Whether you have sore joints or you just have some stubborn lids, this jar opener helps loosen the lids of jars and bottles without pain. It’s already helped more than 3,000 five-star reviewers open jars.

“A real lifesaver when I broke my wrist,” wrote a rave reviewer. “Received this as a gift when I broke my dominant wrist and was unable to open many different size lids with only one hand. Worked so well I bought one for a friend with osteoarthritis in both hands and she was thrilled to be able to open things without having to call her children or a neighbor for help.”

Zulay Kitchen Silicone Utensil Rest with Drip Pad

This utensil rest can hold up to four spoons, knives or brushes while you’re cooking to help keep your countertop tidy. Clip the on-page coupon for the full discount.

This gadget takes a spoon rest to the next level. Designed as a place to put your messy utensils while you’re cooking, it has an extra large to catch all the drippings and there are four slots for all the wooden spoons and brushes you need to pull off dinner.

“Great for cooking big meals!” wrote a rave reviewer. “I have the single utensil holder that’s glass and looks cute, but when cooking big meals for friends and family I was laying down napkins and just dirtying the stove top without having a place for stirring items and scoopers and whatever else I’m using for cooking. This has been GREAT for getting rid of that problem! I will say, things like curry will stain it. But it also stains a lot of other plastic items so that’s on me for not thinking ahead. Otherwise, easy to clean, I can easily hold 4 utensils while cooking on 4 burners, and adds a pop of color to the kitchen! Hands down best thing in my kitchen to have.”

HZMENG Automatic Drink Dispenser

This drink dispenser fits in most bottles. It offers hands-free dispensing featuring a battery-operated touch trigger and pump to draw up liquid and pour it.

Say goodbye to spills! This clever automatic drink dispenser lets you pump drinks from bottles instead of pouring, which is a game-changer for people who have trouble lifting big jugs of beverages. The tap and straw contraption fits into most bottles and features an automatic trigger for hands-free dispensing — just push the edge of your cup against it and the liquid flows.

“Absolutely love this product,” wrote a five-star fan. “It is so very helpful for my elder mother who struggles with pouring. This is so great for anyone with Parkinson’s, stroke or after surgery and you can’t lift heavy items, amazing for children also. I can’t say enough about this product.”

Alise Toilet Paper Holder with Shelf

This toilet paper holder has a storage shelf big enough to hold a cell phone and small items. It comes in a black finish that’s scratch- and corrosion-resistant.

We’ve all accidentally brought a few too many items to the restroom with us and this little gadget means you don’t have to scramble for a place to put your phone or keys while you do your business. Genius, right?

One rave reviewer wrote: “I have a very tiny powder room that had no room for toilet paper and didn’t want to cut a hole in the wall. This worked great! In fact I attached it to the side of the sink with just the adhesive, no screws and so far it’s held up well. I like the shelf, for me I have the soap dispenser on it. But this is a great shelf for your phone.”

MOPMS Toothpaste Dispenser Wall Mount

This toothpaste dispenser squeezes out a dollop of toothpaste onto your toothbrush, hands-free.

This wall-mounted dispenser promises to eliminate the problem of messy tubes of toothpaste. The dispenser turns the tube upside down and, with a push of a lever, it squeezes out toothpaste onto your brush, hands-free. According to Amazon shoppers, this little gadget has the power to prevent messes and save relationships.

“I bought two (his and hers),” shared a happy shopper. We’ve been using these since November and they are fantastic! Stays securely attached to the mirror and is easy to use. My husband has left side weakness from a stroke and does not have use of his left hand. He loves how easy it is to load toothpaste onto his toothbrush without any help. So happy with my purchase and would gladly recommend!!!”

G-TING Dish Drying Rack

Heat- and rust resistant this foldable dish rack fits over the kitchen sink for small spaces and easy storage.

Perfect for small kitchens, this dish drying rack saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water. Bonus: it rolls up for easy storage.

“Ooooh, I scored big for Valentine’s Day this year!” wrote a doting husband. “My wife loves it. She likes order in her kitchen, and leaving things on the counter to dry is horrific. This little baby is easy to store and unroll for use, and enables one to keep all dishes/pots/pans over the sink. It can be a good space-saver by allowing you to use the area above your sink. Also works well as a cooling rack. So easy to use, and yet so enabling.”

Guken Couch Caddy Armrest Organizer

This organizer has four small pockets and two large pockets for all your lounging essentials.

If you spend any amount of time on your couch, you might want to invest in this organizer. On one end, it has six pockets to hold items like books and remote controls. The other end slips under the couch cushion to hold it in place. Amazon shoppers love it for de-cluttering their space.

“I have arm covers with small long pockets for remotes and my mom came by for a visit and wanted just one arm cover to store her iPad and puzzle books in,” reported a rave reviewer. “We decided on this one because it says it is extended so you can tuck more under the sofa cushion to prevent slippage and it’s perfect! She picked the color she wanted, the teal and she’s been using it for several weeks now and she could not be happier. The pockets are plenty big enough to store her iPad, puzzle books and pens and even the thick zip up case that the iPad is stored in when not in use. The material feels like a soft burlap and seems quite solidly constructed. It is absolutely worth the asking price.”

Makerstep Over the Sink Colander

This adjustable strainer colander expands from 14.25 to 19.5 inches to fit perfectly over your sink so you can rinse your vegetables or drain your pasta with ease and less mess.

Anyone who has ever made pasta knows how easy it is to make a mess and lose your noodles when you drain pasta with a colander. This strainer fits perfectly over your sink to prevent wet messes, thanks to the adjustable design.

“Where was I without a sink strainer?” asked a happy shopper. “Instead of getting those dumb bowls with holes out, this makes it so easy to dump veg and fruit into this and run the sink hose over it. It’s been a few weeks, but I’m getting lots of use out of it.”

JHSSN Clothes Storage Bag

Made with waterproof Oxford cloth, these storage cubes have a clear vinyl window, a steel frame to help hold their shape for orderly storage, and a zip closure for easy access.

The end of summer means we’ll be swapping out our summer bedding and clothes for cozier items. If you’re short on closet space, these Oxford cloth storage cubes keep things compact and out of the way when you don’t need them.

“Ordered these to store bedding, blankets, comforters, etc,” a satisfied shopper shared. “I previously stored those items in the plastic zip packaging that new sheets and quilts come in, but I had so many and they were scatter in our storage room and in various closets. Now they’re all together and still protected and easily available. Love the see-thru front with two-way zippers on the front and the top. They can be a bit heavy and unwieldy when fully loaded, but they seem sturdy and hopefully will last a long time for what I’m using them for.”

TOGETRUE Plastic Bag Holder

Made with cotton and polyester, this bag can dispense more than just plastic bags.

This bag is designed with two openings and a loop at one end for easy hanging. You can use it for plastic grocery bags you want to reuse — or anything else that needs corralling in your house.

“I love these bags!” reported one enthusiastic shopper. “Very strong cording & material, excellent sturdiness. And it holds a lot of bags. What I love most is the bottom allows me to pull one out, but isn’t allowing bags to fall to the floor.”

BAGAIL Double Layer Inverted Umbrella

For sun or rain, this inverted umbrella stands up on its own and is made with heavy-duty fabric that’s both durable and blocks UV rays.

Not only is the umbrella made for the rain (it’s never too early to prepare for the rainy season!) but it’s also designed to provide shade from the sun and block damaging UV rays.

“Sitting in full sun with temps in the 90’s, I found it to be very comfortable sitting under this umbrella,” wrote a happy shopper. “I am typically bothered by heat and my husband not so much. The first Sunday that I used this umbrella I was cooler than he was using a regular umbrella.”
