The 5 Best Things I've Purchased on Amazon

Amazon is probably one of the most popular online retailers, selling everything that anyone could ever need. With Amazon Prime, you can have the convenience of Amazon, but with free two-day shipping and even cheaper prices.

If you don't have Amazon Prime, I think that you are missing out. As a student, it was convenient for things such as textbooks and office supplies. As a young adult, it is convenient for finding things that I didn't know I needed, but obviously have to have.

I want to share with you the five most useful things that I've purchased on Amazon in hopes that you will realize that you need these too.

Slime 40022 12-Volt Digital Tire Inflator(aff link)

Like many people, my car is my baby. Recently, I've been having the worst luck with my tires. Having this tire inflator in my trunk has saved me a lot of hassle because I don't have to go to the gas station and pay $1 every time I want to fill up my tires. It plugs into the cigarette lighter while the car is running and is very easy to use. It even has a built-in flash light for night use. As someone who is not very car-savvy, this was a life saver.

Stackable Organizer - 3 Drawers, Clear(aff link)

If you are planner and washi obsessed like I am, you might have seen these "storage drawers" all over Instagram. Well, I'm here to tell you exactly where you can find it, because some people aren't as nice. It's originally a sunglasses holder, but as you can see, I use it for washi tape. You can get the organizer without the dividers and use it for other planner supplies too. How many rolls of washi does it hold? A lot. If you want something to look beautiful on your desk, this is definitely a good item.

Running Belt(aff link)

The days of fanny packs are far from over. I got this running belt mostly for use while running, but also for the occasional trip to the amusement park or somewhere that I really do not want to carry a purse. Available in many colors (I have the red and black), it does not look tacky and is very functional. For the record, I am able to fit my iPhone 6 in it easily, along with my keys, and forms of identification.

Lightning to USB Leather Tassel for iPhone(aff link)

I just recently purchased this because I am always the girl that needs a phone charger but never has hers handy. This keychain phone charger clips right onto my purse or keys, looks fashionable and prevents me from always asking to borrow a phone charger. Belken is a brand that I trust to get the job done when it comes to technology as I have used their products before. Available in four colors, I stuck with the brown because I prefer neutrals.

GoStak Twist n' Lock Storage Jars, 4-Piece(aff link)

This on-the-go snack container is perfect to fill up and throw in your purse. You probably didn't realize that you needed one until now. It easily can fit fruits, nuts, candies, veggies, and is even secure enough to hold dressings, given that you tighten the lid properly. Also, you can arrange the containers in any combination or order, which is pretty cool if you don't want to carry them all around. The containers are also dishwasher safe.

I have one last thing that I'm adding to the list. If you are a student and need textbooks, consider renting or purchasing from Amazon. It's one of the cheapest options that I discovered during my five years in school. I have also found a number of leisure-reading books and brand new DVDs for less than $5, which I consider to be a bargain.

So there you have it, my five favorite things that I've purchased on (non-aff). Are there more things that I recommend? Definitely. I have grown to love Amazon and am discovering different sections of the website every day.

What is your favorite purchase from Amazon? I'd love to know in the comments!
