Lazy Person Amazon Finds to Work Smarter Not Harder

A man uses a hands-free phone stand, a multipurpose pot sits on a counter, and a woman holds a Brita water bottle.

Let’s be honest—life is hard. While there isn’t a “miracle product” out there that can completely make all of the stress in your life go away, there are plenty of unique products that can make life easier.

If you’re often sending memes to friends about being a “lazy girl” or having a “lazy day,” these Amazon finds can take things to the next level in the best way. Let’s be honest. Being lazy is simply about working smarter, not harder. That just makes you intelligent—not lazy.

Exfoliating Shower Foot Scrubber

A person uses an in-shower foot scrubber to wash their feet.

Showering can be incredibly relaxing, especially when you treat it like a spa experience at home. But, trying to reach your feet to get them clean and exfoliate the dead skin can be a pain.

Thankfully, you can kill two birds with one stone by using this shower foot scrubber mat. It uses non-slip suction cups to safely stick to the shower floor, so you can scrub your feet and make sure they stay soft and smooth without having to bend over!

Can Colander

Canned fruits and vegetables are inexpensive, convenient, and a great way to make sure your family eats healthy even if you’re on a budget!

If there’s one drawback, though, it’s having to drain away the water and juice before preparing the produce. Getting out a bulky colander can be a pain, and if you’re using multiple cans for one dish it can take time to wash a large colander between each use

This can lid colander by Progressive slips over just about any standard can (even smelly tuna). You don’t have to get out a big, bulky dish, and you can remove it and give it a quick wash before using it on another can.

Motion-Sensor LED Lights

Motion sensor LED lights are inside a closet, and a man holds up a motion sensor light.

Are you tired of remembering to turn off the light every time you close your closet or pantry? Or, maybe you don’t want to go through the hassle of installing light fixtures on your stairs—but you also don’t want to trip walking down them at night.

These LED motion sensor wireless lights could be the solution.

They can be used under cabinets, on stairs, or in any place that needs a warm glow without having to worry about flipping on (or off) a switch. These lights are rechargeable, stick just about anywhere, and can also be used with a remote, so even if you turn the motion sensor feature off, you still don’t have to get up to turn off the light.

Multi-Purpose Pan

A pan sits on a kitchen counter.

Cooking can be a chore when you have to get out multiple pots and pans for one dish. Or, you might not mind it, but the idea of cleaning those pans later makes you reach for the ramen noodles yet again.

This multi-purpose pan can fry, saute, sear, boil, blanch, and do just about anything else in the kitchen that requires cooking. It’s the ultimate in aluminum construction, it’s nonstick, and it’s dishwasher safe so you don’t have to spend extra time hand-washing. With a few simple swipes with a paper towel, you can go from searing to sauteeing without having to get out a second pan.

Lighting candles can bring cozy vibes to just about any room. But, they can be a pain to light, you have to remember to blow them out, and they don’t last very long so you end up having to buy them more often than you’d probably like. Plus, there’s that unfortunate smell when you do blow them out.

These remote-powered flickering flameless candles are the answer. They’ll give you all the glow you want from traditional candles, but you won’t need to worry about lighting every single one of them. Then, when the end of the night rolls around, save your breath and just use the remote.
