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.

Whether you’re a neat freak or you just don’t like to fold shirts, this folding board makes laundry day much less of a headache — just ask one of the 1,000 five-star fans.

“As a Virgo, I appreciate order and neatness when I can find it,” reported one rave reviewer. “I had decided to take about 2 feet of t-shirts out of my closet to store so I finally had an excuse to buy one. This one worked so nicely! I made short, and very neat, work of my t-shirts, even the really big ones! And then one day my daughter came by to do laundry. After watching her slowly fold some shirts, I pulled my board out and had fun helping her.”

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 really like this toilet paper holder, it looks modern and your phone will never fall down to the floor or inside the toilet again thanks to the top part to place the phone 🙂 lol”

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.”

Cuisinart SmartStick 2-Speed Hand Blender

This hand blender is easy to use, easy to cleanup, has its own chopper/grinder attachment and comes with a measuring cup.

For those cooks who haven’t gotten around to getting that coveted hand blender, now’s your chance to get one of the best on the market. Cuisinart appliances are known for how well they can pulverized vegetables and crush nuts into bits, and this hand blender holds up that reputation. You can whip, blend and grind with this gadget without being cumbersome.

“This little handheld blender is so useful so I don’t have to pull out the big Cuisinart every time I want to make some soup,” shared a happy cook. “It’s blending power is amazing and it is so easy to use and clean. I highly recommend it.”

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.”

A hook is an all-purpose problem solver. Whether you’re short on shelving or you need nail-free solution for hanging decor, these adhesive hooks work magic without damaging your wall.

“These worked out wonderfully for what I needed them for,” wrote a happy shopper. “I even tested one out by hanging a cast iron pan on it to see if it really could hold a heavy item. It didn’t even budge a bit with the pan on it. They are very easy to apply and worked in the area I needed them to work. I had an issue with another brand where they wouldn’t stick to the paint we used in our kitchen. This product had no problem sticking and staying at all. they have been up for several weeks and are still holding strong.”

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.”

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.

“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.”
