    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 on the list this week:

    1. A Rubbermaid produce container that'll allow you to store all of your fruits and veggies in the fridge for longer without their going bad!

    The FreshVent technology controls the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, and the CrispTray keeps moisture away from produce so fruits and veggies won't spoil!

    Promising review: "I have to admit I was skeptical but these are amazing! They have added storage life to everything we've put in them. I am back to buy more as we are going to use them for all our fruits and vegetables. They truly work!" β€”RXDOC1973

    Price: $6.45 (available in seven sizes).

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of these miracle Freshworks containers.

    2. A fashionable lunch bag β€” it's insulated and totally waterproof, because you'd like to keep your turkey sandwich cold and not have condensation leak onto your desk (or anywhere else).


    Promising review: "I love this lunch bag. I struggled to find something that was stylish, within my price range, and with enough room to hold Tupperware containers. Despite looking like a purse, the inside is lined with water resistant material in case anything leaks. I get a ton of compliments on this lunch bag from coworkers." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $13.99

    3. A container of Etude House Drying Powder (made with sugar polymers) for blotting your face throughout the day to keep your matte makeup from turning super shiny.

    Promising review: "I have SUPER oily skin. I have tried many, many things from diet changes to new skincare regimens, and am consistently left with skin that still feels quite greasy by the end of the day. I absolutely LOVE this powder. It is lightweight, super sheer, and works very well at keeping a matte appearance on my face. I generally only need to reapply once, halfway through the day, after a quick refresher with a wipe. I haven't noticed it causing any breakouts (unlike some other powders I've tried before), and it doesn't leave an ashy look to my complexion, even when I accidentally over powder an area." β€”Noe

    Price: $7.80

    4. A somewhat creepy spirit tree sculpture to liven up your backyard. It'll definitely be a conversation piece and get people talking about whether or not your tree is related to Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas.

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. It's firm, semi-flexible and conformed nicely on my large honey locust tree. It looks like the tree grew that way. He is a great conversation piece. Everybody loves him. It could almost pass as a knot that grew like that!" β€”Kamillean

    Price: $43.89

    5. A bottle of car scratch remover, because you hate those little scratches you have on your BMW from those hard-ass pine cones and need some relief!

    Promising review: "This stuff is fantastic! My truck had swirl marks from a previous owner. This black bottle brought depth, shine, and smoothness back to my truck for a steal of a price!" β€”Robert McGruder

    Price: $19.97

    6. A smart notebook that makes digital copies of anything you write down and can be reused up to five times, because we're living in the year 3000 and everything is coming up roses.

    If you get to the end of the notebook, all you have to do is pop it into the microwave, and ta-da! More room for your thoughts!

    Promising review: "I really like this idea, and will use this notebook for years to come. The pen is surprisingly smooth for an erasable pen, and the paper is easy to write on. The app is easy to set up and use. The pages have a dot style page layout, similar to those used for bullet journals. Overall I would recommend this notebook for anyone that likes to have digital copies of their notes." β€”Ben M.

    Price: $26.26

    7. A pair of casual loafers to wear with a cute dress or jeans. They won't hurt your precious feet by the end of the day.

    Promising review: "I'm pregnant, and my feet are swollen. These shoes are a big help. They are very comfortable and the bottoms are slip-proof, too which is nice. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a pair of cute, comfy shoes." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes 4–10 and 47 colors).

    8. A copy of Their Eyes Were Watching God β€” it'll guide you through the life of Janie Crawford as she discovers herself through love and poverty during the era of Jim Crow.

    Promising review: "Hurston gives a window view into a place that shows a growing or blossoming of a woman's life. It journeys on a three-fold path from Janie's life with her grandma through three marriages that unfold new discoveries for Janie as she awakens to the power of her ability to lead herself. Hurston was ahead of her time.'" β€”ML

    Price: $11.24

    9. A pair of strappy sandals with a comfy cork sole, because it's time to free your feet and expose them to the sunshine.

    Promising review: "These are the best! I needed shoes for our two-week trip to Japan, Vietnam, and Cambodia where we'd be doing a ton of walking every day. I read about these being super comfortable and already 'broken in' and they did not disappoint β€” even flip flops give me blisters at the start of the season but these never caused me any issues. Since we were traveling in September when temperatures were in the 80-90 degrees and during the rainy season, I needed something that was breathable but also dried quickly if we got caught in a rain shower. I wore these every single day with no issues, no blisters; they were comfortable and stylish (unlike most outdoor sandals you see). They were very versatile; since suitcase space is prime real estate when traveling, I only packed these and had no problem wearing them with shorts when hiking during the day, and pairing them with a nice dress when going to dinner at night." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $18.60+ (available in sizes 6–10 and 21 colors).

    10. A printed swing dress for going out with the girls to a poppin' rooftop brunch.

    Promising review: "Love it! It's comfortable AND it has pockets! So rare for women's dresses!" β€”Avid Reader

    Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and five sizes).

    11. A simple crossbody bag that'll holds everything you've ever needed without being too cumbersome.

    Promising review: "I honestly love this bag!! Got mine in blush pink. The perfect size for me and has such cute details on it. It's lightweight which is great for me! This bag is perfect for anyone who wants to keep a few things with them but doesn't want a huge purse to lug around." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $15.95 (available in 28 colors).

    12. A useful bento box with an insulated thermos section for your little one who actually has to go to school now, and hates when their lunch foods touch.

    The box is double-walled and air insulated to keep fruits and veggies cool and fresh, while the thermos keeps hot foods hot.

    Promising review: "This is so kid-friendly and practical for kids of all ages. I love that I can send cold lunch, hot lunch, a sandwich, snacks, etc all in the same container! And it isn't too big or cumbersome and fits nicely into the lunch bag we already have. I also think the fact that you can take off the seal to clean/dry it (so that water doesn't get trapped under it while you are washing the box, leading to mildew) is a genius idea. I bought this for my daughter going into Kindergarten; she has issues with low tone and fine motor skills, so I was concerned she would have trouble opening the box and the lid for the insulated container... we practiced at home a few times and the first time she used it she was able to open and close everything. I also have a child going into second grade and this is definitely holds enough food for him as well." β€”erin matier

    Price: $35.80+ (available in five colors).

    13. A tub of ghee butter made with Himalayan pink salt that'll add the right amount of flavor in your meals without using coconut or olive oil!

    Promising review: "This ghee is absolutely delicious and hands down my favorite brand above all others! The taste of the Himalayan pink salt in this is subtle and adds the appropriate amount of flavor without being overpowering. I love this flavor and the Madagascar Vanilla Bean the most! At this point I pretty much consider both to be 'must haves' in my pantry!" β€”WLB R.N.

    Price: $10.99

    14. A set of pretty ceramic coasters so you don't have to murder all your friends for leaving their glasses on your nice wood table without adequate protection.

    Promising review: "Gorgeous coasters and super absorbent! I’m amazed how well they work. For years I have dealt with a variety of coasters in which water would merely pool on top, but not these. They are bone dry even with large glasses of ice water sitting on top. Plus, they are very pretty with different designs on each and three color themes." β€”Jacqueline Miller

    Price: $15.99

    15. A pair of compression sleeves for your calves, because you've been getting cramps lately (training for your 3K), and you need a little bit

    These compression sleeves fit naturally onto your calves and support and stretch where needed without cutting off your sweet circulation.

    Promising review: "I injured my calf muscle on a run. These Doc Miller compression sleeves are a saving grace. Perfect amount of compression to help with pain and aid in healing. I have been wearing one on my injured leg daily for two weeks. Without the sleeve, I can definitely feel the difference." β€”jc

    Price: $11.47+ (available in sizes S–4X and 32 colors).

    16. A compact table fan with an auto shut-off timer and oscillation fans to keep you nice and cool during the night without making too much noise.

    It has four different speeds, including a specialized "quiet-set" control.

    Promising review: "I needed a little extra air flow in the bedroom. We have a ceiling fan but sometimes I get warm at night and didn't want a fan that took up to much room. This fan did the trick. It has different settings and can oscillate. In addition to the air I enjoy the white noise, but if you don't like that, there is a quieter setting. This fan provides the perfect extra cool air and it fits on my nightstand without looking too large." β€”AP

    Price: $19.19

    17. A useful toothbrush stand, because you'd really appreciate having your toothpaste and brush all in the same place without.

    Promising review: "We like that it is small and compact, and that it stands on small legs so all water drains out, keeping both the holder and the toothbrush holders dry and clean. We bought two for one bathroom and ended up ordering a third one for another bathroom." β€”LCGreen

    Price: $7.89

    18. A tube of The Balm Mad Lash Mascara to lengthen your lashes to the next solar system without smudging or transferring over to your eyelids throughout the day

    @thebalm_cosmetics / Via

    Promising review: "I like my eyelashes as dark as my soul and as long as the list of people I hate. The mascara does just that. It has exceeded my expectations. It makes my eyelashes look like I'm wearing falsies. It is easy to build up (not that you need to, one swipe and your lashes extend to the heavens). I have used other Balm mascaras and this one is by far my favorite." β€”Lex

    Price: $17.10

    19. A foldable storage bag made out of linen so your blankets and off-season clothing will be able to breathe while stowed away in a closet or underneath your bed.

    Plus it has a tiny transparent window so you'll know exactly what you put in the damn thing.

    Promising review: "This holds a lot of items inside. I have it pretty stuffed with bed sheets, towels, and throws, and everything fits perfect in there. The bag hasn’t broken or ripped in any way and is very sturdy." β€”Diana

    Price: $10.99

    20. A super cool and portable lightbox powered by a USB cord for when the inspiration to trace something hits β€” you can use it for stenciling, 2D animation, calligraphy, scrapbooking, or tattooing!

    It can be plugged into a computer or other power source, and won't flicker since the light is LED! There's a touch on and off switch as well as brightness control.

    Promising review: "I love this lightbox. It's very thin and the light is adjustable. I put heavy weight paper for calligraphy on top and I can see through easily. The USB power input means you can use other USB adapters to power this. It also comes with a USB cable so any cell phone charger that has a USB port can be used, or plugged into your laptop. I have drawn and done calligraphy for a long time without one of these and don't know how I got along without one." β€”mark

    Price: $18.82

    21. A copy of Black Panther so you can consistently get your life watching T'Challa defeat the fine-ass Killmonger to keep Wakanda flourishing and in safe hands.

    Promising review: "This movie is so loaded with everything, like special effects, tremendous action scenes, imagination, storylines, agendas, and surprises. I watched this movie five times now and it's actually difficult following the storyline for the first few viewings. There's just so much to process but I have to admit that I really liked it. Every time I watch it I see and understand more. I'm looking forward to watching it again." β€”Fromdefo1

    Price: $17.96+ (also available on Blu-ray).

    Wakanda forever!
