There's nothing like the delight of finding useful products on Amazon that provide solutions to annoyances in your day-to-day life. It’s that elusive thing you’ve been looking for: the organizing solution that wrangles a nest of tangled cords, the smart outlet that turns off the lights, or the gadget that solves the problem you didn't even know you had. (Carpet tape, anyone?) The discovery never fails to give us a little boost, especially after we’ve clicked “buy now.”
It’s even better when the most wanted Amazon product costs a little more than a round of drinks — and thanks to the site’s famously low prices, finding budget-friendly useful Amazon products is quite common. So common, in fact, that when we hit the site to compile a list of the most useful products that we could find, we weren't surprised at all by the nifty knickknacks out there. Click through to see the most clever products we could suss out — all for under $40.
