Not to sound dramatic or anything, but TikTok has changed my life. The amount of time I spent scrolling through the funny dance videos and DIY tutorials on the app is maybe a little bit concerning, but it's not all been wasted time. TikTok has, in fact, been a source of life-changing hacks and genius product recommendations I never would have discovered had a video clip of 60 seconds or less not popping up on my For You Page, which is the app's equivalent of a discover page. (Let me also plug Who What Wear's own page while I'm at it—you can follow here.)

Speaking of product recommendations, there's a trend going around the app where people drop their top Amazon buys that are random but "just make sense." To see what I'm talking about, scroll down to watch this example from fashion influencer Brittany Xavier. Naturally, I watched more than a dozen similar videos and soon after filled my cart with all the hidden finds I discovered.

Some examples of these random-but-useful things a lint-remover device for when your leggings start to pill after a wash or a water bottle with time markers so you can stay on track of drinking enough water throughout the day. From cheap fashion updates and useful beauty products to at-home wellness hacks and home organization tools, scroll down to see all the new Amazon basics I uncovered from TikTok.

Home and Organization Items

Lint rollers are fine and all, but they never really get the job done, you know? I saw someone using this to remove the pills that form on leggings, and thought it was kind of genius.

As working from home because the norm, this phone is looking a lot more useful.

I saw someone use these in their closet to hang jeans by their belt loops and thought it was a cool and visually appealing way to organize them.
