I don’t know about you, but I have a shopping problem and even more so now that Amazon exists, but I am also the person who does weeks of research before buying anything mayor. Which is why I love receiving updates when Amazon’s Best Sellers Lists have been updated.
Since I know there are more Amazon addicts than just me, or at least at this point I really hope so, I went through, found the top-rated products for some of the most shopped for items, and listed them all below for you.
Recently, we moved back to Canada from living in Mexico for 9 months (thanks COVID-19) and I have been taking a look at all the new home items I am going to need. Yes, need. Here are the items at the top of my cart.
Bear in mind that some of the links in this post are affiliate links and if you go through them to make a purchase I will earn a commission. Keep in mind that I link these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.
I will admit that I use to be the least organized kid and my mother would torment me into cleaning it by showing my friends what it looked like when they were over. I guess all these years later it worked because now I love having my clothing rolled, tucked away, or labeled. Oh, how I love labeling, colour coding, and bulk buying.
If you are looking for an easy way to keep towels, extra clothing, or even magazines out of the way, then you will most likely be a fan of the 6 Pack SimpleHouseware Foldable Cloth Storage Bins. These bins come in multiple colours, so if they will be exposed, you can keep them fun and playful or natural and clean.
Rolling your clothing is a great way to add space but not always a great way to store certain pieces. For those annoying wrinkles or creases that seem to appear right before you need to leave, having a handheld steamer will be your favourite laundry bestie. The BEAUTURAL 1200-Watt Handheld Steamer for Clothes boosts a warm-up time of 30 seconds and comes with multiple heads for more than just steaming. With over 5,000 reviews and a 4.3/5 star rating, I am adding this blue beauty to my cart.
My next item is always a must have but never seem to have: Super Glue! How many times have you wished you had a tube of glue to fix the strangest of things. It’s always something you would never think you needed, until of course when you need it. I personally enjoy using Gorilla Super Glue, I have used it to fix tables, cracks in mugs, and don’t judge, but I once used it to fix my nail… not recommended but it worked.
Another item I have wanted for a while and have added to my cart is a Digital Instant Read Meat Thermometer. I have never (knock on wood) undercooked meat and made someone sick but $%#$ I have worried about it. It will make my life, and probably anyone who eats my food, better.
This is going to be the item that saves me time and my sanity. An electric water kettle. Do you know the number of things you can make with just hot water, and how annoying is it to boil water on the stove? Plug this baby in and your water will heat up in seconds. My cart is currently holding the Hamilton Beach 1.0L Electric Kettle. I had this kettle in my office and I love the blue light feature it has, the clear glass, and how quickly it heats up. It sits on a stand that is plugged in but your kettle is cordless.
I don’t have any issues with making rice, I find it easy to do but have forgotten it before and burnt rice stinks. So to save my pots and not waste any more rice, I have been looking at getting a rice cooker. This Black+Decker Personal Size Rice Maker can produce up to 3 cups of rice, which is perfect for making a large rice meal, sushi meal, or just to have extra leftover rice.
The last item that will go into the kitchen has also been on my must-get list for a while now. I am a big believer in buying in bulk, I have reusable jars that house my dried fruit, granola, rice, flour, and more. This set of Chef’s Path Airtight Food Storage Container Set 14PC might seem a bit expensive but will help you in saving money and time in the long run.
Extra items you can find on my wishlist:
Saratoga Home Premium 3-Tier Wall Wire Baskets – Perfect for holding fruit, veggies, and potatoes.
YouCopia WrapStand Kitchen Wrap Box Storage – Save a drawer for something better than boxes. By placing the box opening so it’s facing out, the WrapStand can act as a wrap or baggie dispenser!
EZOWare Kitchen Storage Bins – Probably one of my favourite items to have for the fridge and bathroom. I love to keep things grouped together so that I can clearly see which items I need to restock – This clear stackable bin help me do just that.
My office is my favourite place to be. I write better when I have less clutter, I feel better surrounded by beautiful items, and I always need 80 notebooks to write down all my thoughts, ideas, and notes I can’t read after the fact.

My Amazon’s Best Sellers List for my office is miles long, but I would not be doing myself justice if I bought everything I wanted, so here are the four that made it into the cart.
This product is for both the office and the kitchen. A label maker is a gift from the organization gods. There are tons of great reviews on the Brother PTM95 Label Marker, with over 2000 reviews and a 4.4/5 star rating. Even the price point is great since this is a product you will need to buy replacement ribbons for when you finish labeling your entire house. It also is a great way for you to learn a new language by labeling in both English and your new language.
Having two dogs means little hairs all over the place and that includes in my keyboard. A must have for anyone with a computer is an Air Duster. This $10 will save you hundreds of dollars at your local Geek Squad when your keyboard stops working. They work for lots of areas in your house like your tv remote, printer, and even key fobs.
I am a huge fan of colour coding. I had every highlighter they made but never have I had pastel, until now. I love the soft but still vibrate look of Bic’s Briteliner Highlighters and with the perfect size chisel tip too.
The final item on my list is the Moko Magnetic Dry Erase Calendar 16″ x 12″. I do love the black style with the bright colours. We have large whiteboard calendars in both the office for work and the main room for workouts, reminders, etc. What I love about this one, other than the style, is the fact that I can use it on the fridge for meal planning, as well as the shopping list. By the way, I think I would be good friends with the person who made this list. Check out how many pairs of high heels they need to buy.
That’s it… well ok, there are a lot more items that I want to buy but this is what my wallet, aka hubby, will let me. Also, he said no to buying 8 pairs of high heels.
