    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers," which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week:

    1. A pack of vacuum bags to enable your overpacking problem.

    Sets include five or six bags depending on the size you choose.

    Promising review: "These bags are WONDERFUL!! I have two kids and have saved a lot of their clothes because we are expecting to have more children sometime and I would love to not have to rebuy everything but they seriously take up so much space! I recently shattered three of my bins I use to store the clothes in (thanks to below freezing temperatures) and instead of buying more I bought these bags instead and I am SO glad I did. They save so much space and I love that the hand pump is included. It's easy to use and doesn't take long at all, even on the large bags. The directions are printed on each bag so you are reminded how to use them without keeping a box or instruction manual. Thank you for a great product!" —Angela Urrutia

    Price: $14.99+ (available in three sizes)

    2. A pair of thin reading glasses with a case that sticks to the back of your phone so you're never squinting to make out words because you lost your reading glasses again!

    Promising review: "Color me impressed! I have a bowling teammate who has had ThinOptics for a while. I finally decided to order a pair for myself in red. I get so many compliments on them and they are very handy to have around. I have the included holder attached to the back of my cell phone so that they are never far away. I've had many pairs of reading glasses over the years, but these are by far the best. Every time I wear them, somebody asks me for ordering info. The only flaw with these glasses that I've found is that I forget I'm wearing them when I eat. The chewing motion seems to cause them to lose their grip on my nose. They have fallen off dozens of times while eating, usually into food. Long story short, they finally broke but replacement was a breeze from the manufacturer with the lifetime guarantee. Five minutes later and my new glasses are on their way. I recommend these glasses to anybody that needs reading glasses and I buy them as gifts for friends. You can't go wrong with excellent quality and a lifetime guarantee!" —Mike W.

    Price: $15.96+ (available in six frame colors, two case colors, and four strengths)

    3. A set of two jars of everything bagel seasoning for making even the blandest of food taste like a delicious everything bagel!

    Promising review: "Everyone should have this. Trying to eat healthier, I don't have as many bagels as I used to and now make my breakfast sandwiches on flatbreads. This absolutely helps it feel like the sandwich is on my favorite everything bagel." —Sam Johnson

    Price: $12.49

    4. A set of four heart-shaped cookie cutters which will make cookies that are as adorable as they are yummy!

    Promising review: "These are high quality. They have sharp edges on the cutting side, but not sharp enough to cut tiny fingers. the have blunt edges on the pressing side, making it comfortable to press with tender fingers. I loved the shape and the sizes, making cookie variations fun and easy. The butter cookie recipe was an unexpected bonus. It was good!!!" —Ann M.

    Price: $10.99

    5. A set of five oval makeup brushes to channel your inner YouTube-famous MUA and create stunning looks!

    Promising review: "If you haven't applied makeup with an oval makeup brush yet then you're missing out. I use the big brush to apply my foundation and the smaller one for highlighter. These oval makeup brushes are the softest I've ever tried. I feel like a professional makeup artist and they're quite trendy as well. These are great to buy for yourself or give to your aspiring makeup artist friend." —Lauren Caldwell

    Price: $9.99+

    6. A memory foam lumbar cushion that may alleviate some pain from constant sitting/poor posture.

    Promising review: "My mom has been wanting to try this pillow out for a while. So I surprised her and sent it to her. And she loves it. She takes it to every chair she sits in. The memory foam really molds to the body and gives great support. She finds it's been helping with her back pain she usually feels by the end of the day." —Darla

    Price: $14.99

    7. A pet hair and lint remover brush for cleaning yourself up after puppy cuddle sessions!

    Promising review: "I have two dogs and until now I haven't found anything that works on the couch, carpet, chairs, clothes, and inside the car. My Jack Russell, Lucy, is white and her hair falls out when you pet her. My service dog is a chocolate lab named Wyatt. I find his hair all over the floor and in corners. I could make a blanket with their hair. This pet hair remover picks it all up no matter where I find it. I also like that the base cleans the brush. I would definitely buy another. I recommend to all my friends and family." —Julie Haraughty

    Price: $14.96

    8. A bag of freeze dried dog food made with 95% meat and organic fruits and veggies so your pups can eat better than you do!

    Promising review: "This is my dog's favorite food. I have a picky eater and he loves almost all of the Stella and Chewy's flavors. I like that this is made in the USA, is not processed, and contains ingredients that are high in quality and protein, and don't contain fillers that are found in other dog foods. Their coats shine and they produce minimal waste (from unnecessary fillers that dogs can't digest) when eating Stella and Chewy's. It is pricey, but if you can afford it this is one of the best foods you can feed your dogs." —Mary S.

    Price: $29.99 (available in nine flavors)

    9. An on-the-go mini espresso maker that'll be just like having a Starbucks barista with you at all times.

    This requires no batteries or electricity. Simply put the coffee grounds into the filter basket, add hot water into the water tank, and pump it a few times to release a delicious shot of espresso. Easily clean it by rinsing it in the sink.

    Promising review: "This espresso maker is amazing! I bought it for my coffee junkie husband, so he knows good stuff right away. The espresso that he made me was rich, full bodied, and had a generous layer of the softest foam on top. It is easy to use and take with you wherever you like. It takes some effort to squeeze the drink out of it and more than one session if you're THAT into coffee. Everything is made to last with nice solid materials. I will probably buy more as gifts for my friends. Be aware that the same rules of choosing the roast and the grind apply here as with the regular espresso machines. I like my coffee softer, not overly bitter, so I usually go with the light roast with low acidity and it's a win." —Ermolko

    Price: $49.40

    10. A retro backless one-piece for all the sass and style of an old-school pin-up model!

    Promising review: Soooo cute! I wore this swimsuit in St. Kitts at one of our cruise stops and I received so many compliments! I didn't have any problems with my boobs coming out! I only did mild beach swimming by the shore but I feel like the top half is fine for more strenuous beach activities. So many people couldn't believe that I got this on Amazon for $25!" —Laura Carvajal

    Price: $24.99 (available in 21 colors, sizes S–3XL)

    11. A set of 133 felt furniture pads to protect your floors and walls from scratches and hopefully allow you to recoup your security deposit!

    Promising review: "Great set of different-sized protectors. Very handy and the two tones make it easier to match with different colored furniture. I have used them on the headboard of beds to keep from damaging the paint on the walls, light coffee tables that often scoot along the floor that leave marks and of course stool seats that have scraped our new flooring. So far the stick has been good and no more markings on the wall or floor." —DobieMom

    Price: $9.91

    12. A 24-function dual shower head which can make your shower feel like a luxurious hotel.

    Promising review: "This is super easy to install; no need to be intimidated by the pieces in the box. I bought one for each bathroom, and installed both without looking at the directions. It comes with its own thread seal tape, no need to purchase separate tape (despite Amazon's insistence that people buy both). There is a flow regulator in the diverter, as noted in the instructions, but can easily be removed. I've had no issues with leaking, but I've only had it for a few weeks. Love it, so far!" —NavyBtch

    Price: $24.99

    13. A pack of 24 travel toothbrushes so you always have them on hand if you're out and about smelling like your last meal.

    Promising review: "These disposable toothbrushes have been a lifesaver for me. I took them overseas for a work trip and thought at first they would be just a gimmick. I figured I would use them to brush my teeth and end up going through multiple of them because they are so small. One of them did the trick every time. They pack a lot of good stuff into each of these brushes. The lifesaver for me with these was when our power went out and we had no running water. No worries at all. These don't require water, just saliva. Once you get the motion going you'll have a fresh mouth in no time. I won't hesitate to purchase more in the event that I run out." —Cam

    Price: $4.39

    14. A set of stainless-steel measuring spoons sturdy enough to scoop heavy ingredients like brown sugar without bending or breaking.

    These measuring spoons are rust-resistant and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I purchased these measuring spoons because I was frustrated with thin metal measuring spoons that would bend while scooping brown sugar and plastic spoons with size labels that would disappear and leave me to guess the amount each held. These stainless steel measuring spoons have been wonderful. They are made of super strong (though not thick metal) and the etched in measurement amounts will not fall off or fade away with use. I am very happy with this product and when I decide to purchase measuring spoons again, I will reorder this set." —lsfritsch

    Price: $8.48

    15. A Cuisinart pizza grilling set perfect for the pizza lovers of the world... so basically everyone.

    Set includes a pizza stone, spatula, and cutter.

    Promising review: "The set of the pizza stone, pizza spatula, and pizza cutter are an excellent deal. The stone cooks a perfect pizza every time. The pizza spatula easily slides the pizza off the stone and the pizza cutter works great. The stone cooks the pizza quickly and easily on the grill. I recommend this set to everyone who loves pizza." —Nadine D Piatt

    Price: $20.99

    16. A hypoallergenic comforter because you could use a little extra coziness on cold nights.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a comfy comforter to replace my goose down one that was too hot and gave me allergies. This was perfect. It is very comfortable. I don’t sleep hot anymore, it’s not heavy, and I have no allergies anymore. I'm very satisfied with this purchase." —S. Keith

    Price: $24.95+ (available in three sizes)

    17. A three-tier shoe rack that'll perfectly display your impressive collection of shoes.

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with my choice. It's a good balance of price point, function, and appearance. I bought two and stacked them. Assembly was easy, one just needs to be mindful that screws should not be over-tightened. I mainly get three pairs of shoes (men's size 9.5) per shelf, though could possibly squeeze four if they were all light tennis shoes, loafers, etc." —JN

    Price: $21.99

    18. A ring size adjuster so your most prized possession never slips through your fingers.

    Promising review: "Serious lifesaver of a product here! I've lost weight and my engagement ring practically falls off now. I was given another plastic ring sizer for free from my sister-in-law but it was really big and annoyed me to no end. I could always feel it. This one I can't even feel and it tightens my ring just the right amount. I'm using the medium sized coil. If my fingers shrink even more I can move up to the larger size. Eventually I will get my ring sized down but until I'm at my goal weight I don't want to." —Sarah Hall

    Price: $5.99

    19. A set of five cape and mask costumes to give your kids hours of crime fighting fun!

    Set includes five capes and five masks.

    Promising review: "Surprisingly good quality for the price. The masks are made out of felt, very crisply cut, and sized perfectly for a child's face. The capes are real satin fabric, each double sided with a contrasting color on the inside, good silkscreened logos, and a nice wide neck opening with a Velcro closure for safety. My son and daughter love playing with them." —S. Boggia

    Price: $19.99

    20. A double laundry hamper for separating lights from darks and preventing any laundry nightmares that might turn all your clothes pink!

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things. It’s amazing quality. It’s super sturdy and holds its shape. The fabric is nice and thick. The lid is magnetic so it closes itself and stays closed. The interior bags easily detach and have handles for easy carrying in and out or washing. We actually use this as a combination trash and recycling bin. It looks super nice in our kitchen. The trash bags also fasten in nicely! This was absolutely a great buy. I will be buying again for an actual laundry hamper. Love love love!" —Kerry

    Price: $39.96

    21. A pair of fun leggings because some fun patterned leggings could give you that extra motivation to get active!,

    Promising review: "For the money you can't beat this pair of work out pants. They are super soft and super cute. My wife liked them so much, I ordered several more pairs for her. She works out at the gym three to four times a week and has been wearing these now for months. They show no signs of wear and she always talks about how soft they are. Great product and a great price. I will purchase more in the future." —Jason C.

    Price: $9.99+ (available in 34 colors, sizes S–XL)

    22. A matcha tea set which will help you make matcha better tea.

    Set includes a bamboo whisk, a scoop, and a spoon.

    Promising review: "Exquisite set! The craftsmanship exceeded my expectations. Being a serious tea consumer, I know my stuff. It's made of high-quality bamboo! I'll be ordering for friends and family members. Great product and swift service. Thank you" —Jacklyn Sherrod

    Price: $11.99

    23. A bag dispenser and 300 dog waste bags so you never find yourself standing in front of a pile of poop with an empty bag dispenser thinking F**K!

    Set includes 15 rolls of 20 bags and a plastic bag dispenser.

    Promising review: "I just got a puppy and live in an apartment so I must pick up after him every single time he goes. I did not realize how many bags I would be using for this! After purchasing some bags at the pet store where they don't come in bulk and you can only get about five rolls for the price of these, I realized that going through five rolls takes no time at all and I would have to be buying bags every other week. Luckily Amazon has bulk bags available for a good price. This is an excellent value and the bags are thick and high-quality, and do not tear or leak. I use so many of these bags and will definitely restock these when they run out!" —A

    Price: $8.99

    24. A stainless-steel magnetic utensil holder to hold all your metal utensils and give your kitchen a sleek modern style.

    Promising review: "Once I started taking a bit better care of my kitchen knives, especially in terms of keeping them sharp, I couldn't bear to toss them in a drawer organizer so I started looking for a magnetic bar solution. It was more for practicality than aesthetics. Having said that, while very practical, this bar does look great in terms of being clean and modern. The magnetic is very strong and has no issue holding any of my knives. Also, I was able to mount it to my tile backsplash using some double-sided tape instead of drilling holes, so it literally took less than five minutes." —Billy

    Price: $14.99

    25. A magnetic tool bracelet that'll make doing home improvement projects easy peasy.

    Promising review: "I bought this magnetic wristband for my husband because he always needs to do some small fixing for the house. This wristband is very convenient. I don’t need to stand beside my hubby to hand him the little tools. Great buy! We both love it." —Hope HP

    Price: $9.99
