    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. Lunchbox containers specially designed to keep the different foods in there fresh and organized.

    Promising Review: "Love how easy these make packing healthy school lunches. In order to encourage more fresh eating, I designate each of the two smaller portions for fruits/veggies, and have my child help pack her favorite foods." β€”Kindle Customer

    Price: $13.95+ (available in four colors)

    2. A pet hair remover mitt for helping to prevent unwanted shedding around the house, and keeping your furry friend's mane clean.

    Promising Review: "This is really a great invention. My two cats really like it when I'm stroking them with the glove, and at the same time grooming them. They have so much hair, and it usually ends up all over my house, my floor, and furniture. This is a good way to get rid of some of that hair, and brush my cats while I'm watching TV." β€”dini

    Price: $12.99

    3. A squatty potty β€” the better way to go to the bathroom.

    Promising Review: "You know how ducks don't have sphincters so their poop slides right out? Squatty Potty turns you into a duck. That is the easiest analogy I can come up with." β€”KateDress

    Price: $17.49

    4. A French press so you can pour some yummy AF coffee out of a fancy glass press and act like you're Parisian.

    Promising Review: "Awesome product!! I love it. I bring it to work, and it works fantastically. I also want to mention that this French press also stays hotter longer. I have people asking me for coffee. They love the taste of it, and so do I." β€”J. Ivelisse Cooper

    Price: $14.95

    5. Liquid eyeliner for looking fine, fresh, and fierce. WORK IT!

    Promising Review: "This Stila eyeliner is the best, hands down. Goes on easy and smoothly, perfect every time. And it comes in 14 amazing colors. I use this with Lavish HD Volumizing Fiber Mascara, and my eyes and eyelashes look great. These are the best eyeliner and mascara I have ever used. Both a little pricey, but worth it for sure." β€”Elizabeth F.

    Price: $22 (available in 15 colors)

    6. An off-the-shoulder dress you can't go wrong wearing to the next fancy party you attend.

    Promising Review: "Perfect! Ordered the dress to wear to an evening wedding and it's absolutely stunning!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $13.99+ (available in nine colors, sizes S–2XL)

    7. A mesh shower caddy, just in case you're doing some last-minute college shopping. This is one item you should have at the very top of your list.

    Promising Review: "Bought this for my son's first year away at college. This is a really sturdy and well-made tote. He was able to put all of his shower and bathroom stuff in it, so he just needed to carry one thing to and from the dorm bathroom. Works great!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $9.99 (available in five colors)

    8. A booster car seat that's easily adjustable as your child grows. It'll keep them safe in the backseat *and* comes with cup holders, because what kid wants to hold their sippy cup?

    Promising Review: "I got this car seat for my 2-year-old. She's big for her age, so I wanted a harnessed booster seat. This seat is made nicely. She seems to be comfortable in it." β€”Jodi Button

    Price: $63.92+ (available in three colors)

    9. A calendar for the 2017-2018 academic year, perfect for hanging on a wall or laying out on your desk.

    Promising Review: "I love this planner! It's so pretty!!!! I got it to put above my desk, and it works perfectly there. I really like how big it is, so that I can easily write notes on different days." β€”Heidi Jean Love

    Price: $16.95

    10. Detailed paintbrushes to help create picture-perfect paintings. You might be able to trick people into thinking you're a real-life Picasso.

    Promising Review: "These brushes work great, and are very durable. I use them for everything. Very durable, and seem to last after several uses, and still look like new when cared for properly." β€”DW

    Price: 12-pack for $14.97

    11. Quest bars that are filled with protein, have less than one gram of sugar, and taste like chocolate chip cookie dough (with an extra emphasis on the chocolate chips).

    Promising Review: "These are great snacks, and help me get enough protein in my diet. Minimal ingredients, and great flavor. Best protein bar out there in my opinion." β€”Kyle Desmet

    Price: 12-pack for $22

    12. A ruffled maxi dress β€” a good choice for a pretty daytime outfit. And you can dress it up for a night out.

    Promising Review: "This dress is such a steal for the price. Perfect for a summer vacay. Love love LOVE!" β€”Monique

    Price: $17.99+ (available in 12 styles, sizes S–XL)

    13. A lunchbox so cute, buying lunch at school won't even be a thought in your child's head.

    Promising Review: "My 4-year-old picked this out, and has been thrilled with it so far this school year. It seems to be holding up very well, and fits all the essentials for lunchtime." β€”A.B.Gibbs

    Price: $8.59+ (available in 14 styles)

    14. Calligraphy pens β€” I think it's really cool if you're the type of person who can do this. Also: Will you make the invitations for the next party I host?

    Promising Review: "I have been writing calligraphy for about six months, and I absolutely love this set. The pens are great quality, and easy to assemble in addition to being nice to look at." β€”Jain Wilks

    Price: 33 pieces for $14.29

    15. A magnifying glass to make reading the fine print a much easier, maybe even enjoyable, task.

    Promising Review: "Just what my husband and I needed. Even with reading glasses, some things are just too small to read. This is the perfect size, and weight. I keep it right next to me." β€”Wanda Wilson

    Price: $9.95

    16. A label maker...pretty self-explanatory what this does, but unexplainably useful.

    Promising Review: "Great label maker. Simple and easy to use. No issues." β€”Canned Cornbread

    Price: $19.99

    17. An album you'll want to preorder immediately if you haven't already β€” Fifth Harmony's debut album as a quartet! It's bound to be good if their recent single "Down" is any reflection of what's to come.

    No reviews yet, because it has yet to be released, but I can basically guarantee the reviews will be πŸ”₯.

    Price: $11.78
