Have you ever looked at your Amazon purchase history? Because mine is kinda wild — and the freaky blonde wig I needed for a quick costume a few weekends ago definitely stands out. But just because I like to set money on fire, doesn't mean that our other writers do too.
In fact, we asked them to share what their last 10 purchases on Amazon were. Some writers, like Amanda Rogers and Andrea Romano, have seriously good picks — everything from collapsible water bottles to magnetic knife racks. But if you're looking for a little more variety? Don't worry. Writers Riley Schnepf and Josh Smith's past orders feature a little something for everybody — no matter what your tastes are.

This Silk Pillowcase Is NirvanaI love silk pillowcases since they keep my hair tangle-free and feel so nice on my face. I have a few that have zippers, but the silk is so delicate that often the zippers rip the fabric. That's why this one's special - it has an envelope closure that stays put on its own, no zippers required. I got the navy blue last month and she's gorgeous! - Amanda Rogers
This Electric Kettle Is So FastWe’re big tea drinkers around here, so when our old electric kettle kicked the bucket we embarked on a research campaign to find a new one with great reviews. We landed on this cheerful one that has over 8,500 glowing reviews on Amazon and it hasn’t disappointed us! You just place it in the base, press the switch at the bottom, and in a few minutes, you have piping hot water for tea or instant noodles! - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
This Coconut Leave In Conditioner Works MiraclesMy girls both have thin but curly hair that’s incredibly tangle-prone. They use plenty of conditioner in the shower, but we still need a leave-in one too if there’s any hope of combing their hair out. I love this Coconut Leave-In Conditioner for them – not only does it smell like tropical heaven, but it also doesn’t weigh down hair, just leaves it soft and tangle-free the next morning, too. - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
These Self-Heating Eye Masks Are So SoothingAs I mentioned, I’m on the computer pretty much 24/7 and it really affects my eyes. The blue light blocking glasses are helping, but when allergy season hits there’s no hope. So I saw these Japanese self-heating eye masks on a list of self-care products and snagged them right away. I was worried that they’d get too hot, but they’re just the right temperature, and the incredibly soothing chamomile scent is so relaxing. I put them on my eyes after a long day and it’s basically heaven. - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
This Magnetic Knife Rack Freed Up Counter SpaceWe used to have one of those big butcher block knife blocks, but it took up so much room on the counter and got so grimy from being next to the stove. We got this magnetic knife rack and haven't looked back since! It's just the right length to hold our assortment of knives and even a pair of scissors, and I love how it streamlined our countertop so it doesn't look cluttered anymore. It also keeps the knives out of kids' reach, which is an important safety feature! - Amanda Rogers
These Wireless Ear Buds Are Great For WorkoutsI’d been really jonesing for some AirPods but just couldn’t stomach the price. Plus I wanted some for working out that could get sweaty, and I don’t think the Apple ones are waterproof. So I came across these wireless earbuds last winter with over 100,000 rave reviews and popped them into my cart asap. These have been my constant workout companions – they stay right in place even during vigorous exercise and the sound quality is amazing. - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
This Cozy Sweatshirt Is Like A Wearable BlanketOur old farmhouse is cold nine months out of the year, even when it’s relatively warm outside. I’m usually wearing a fleece jacket around, but when I saw this cozy sherpa-lined sweatshirt that’s basically a wearable blanket, I put it on my wishlist immediately. I can see myself living in this thing – my two favorite features are the fuzzy hood and the POCKET! - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
This Fresh Rose Face Cream Is DecadentNo selfie of this Fresh Rose Face Cream since I used it all already! I think it's the first container of face product I've used all the way to the end, I just love it so much. The light floral scent is so relaxing when you apply it at night (or in the morning if you just can't get enough, like me!) and the cream just melts into your skin, no oily or sticky residue in sight. This is my favorite everyday face cream ever, it feels so luxe! - Amanda Rogers
This Dior Nail Glow Looks So NaturalMy nails are usually naked since I type so much, they break off and split so I don’t put a lot of energy into them. But when I do treat myself, I love using this Dior Nail Glow that leaves the prettiest hint of pink on your nails that you can wear forever because it won’t chip or crack like actual polish can. It’s the perfect veil of color for low maintenance gals and makes your nails look so rosy and healthy. - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
These Sweatpants Are The CoziestIn a similar vein to the sherpa-lined sweatshirt, I’d also live in these sherpa-lined sweatpants. How cozy do they look? My legs are often cold, too, and I don’t want to wear a full-length robe or an adult footed onesie around, as comfortable as they might be. These are the perfect solution to staying warm this winter, and they’d be great under my snow pants, too. Après-sledding cocktails, anyone? - Amanda RogersView on Amazon
This Ice Roller Is My Skincare Holy GrailI was always a skeptic when it came to facial rollers. I’ve seen every influencer under the sun promoting quartz rollers, jade rollers, etc. After researching the benefits of an ice roller, I decided to pull the trigger on this one — and now it’s become my holy grail. I use it first thing in the morning, and my skin becomes noticeably tighter and less red. It also acts as a little pick-me-up for mornings when I’m feeling extra drowsy. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
Movie Nights Are About To Become A Whole Lot Cooler With This Mini ProjectorI’ve wanted a portable projector for a while now. I was always too afraid to pull the trigger in fear that the quality would be poor. However, after a recent run-in with my neighbors who were watching a movie on one in their front yard, I decided now’s the time to try it out. I ordered this projector and received it in a day. And although I have yet to use it, I can’t wait to bust out the movie theater popcorn and watch movies in our backyard this fall! - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
Have Any Book You Want At Your Fingertips With A KindleYou know how I just said I made a lot of spontaneous quarantine purchases? Yeah, this was another one. I am an avid reader, but I hated not being able to read at night without a light on. The Kindle allows me to read any book that I want and do so in the dark. The backlight is just bright enough and doesn't contain blue light, so I'm not up all night once I'm finished.
These Essential Oils Make Your Home Smell Like ChristmasI came across these essential oils after my sister-in-law recommended them to me. I am an avid lover of all things Christmas and holidays, so I figured what did I have to lose? After putting a couple of scents in my diffuser, I am obsessed. They make your home feel oh-so-cozy. The nutmeg makes your home smell like fresh baked goods while the fir needle smells like a freshly cut Christmas tree. I’m going to be diffusing these all winter long. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
These Reusable Storage Bags Are A Sustainable Alternative To Plastic BagsMy sister has a 9-5 job, so she has to bring her lunch to work with her every day. That’s why she decided to make the switch from plastic bags to these reusable storage bags. They're reusable to help you save money over the long run, and you can even use them to cook sous vide style. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
This Cheese Board and Knife Set Is The Perfect Housewarming GiftI’m a big-time cheese and wine lover. There’s nothing better than a charcuterie board and a chilled glass of wine on the patio while watching the sunset. My sister actually got me this cheese board and knife set as a housewarming gift, and it has been my favorite kitchen item now that the weather has cooled down. I like to throw on some Italian music and pretend that I’m on the Amalfi Coast while I enjoy my cheese and crackers. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
This Pom-Pom Blanket Is The Perfect Everyday ThrowI purchased this pom-pom throw blanket as a housewarming gift for my sister! She just recently moved into a new place and is going crazy with decorating. After I gave it to her, she said, “it’s super soft and matches my boho decor perfectly!" - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
Organize Your Pantry With These Storage ContainersLooks like my organization kick is rubbing off on my sister, too. She recently purchased these storage containers after I picked up a few from a local store. With the included labels, finding your grocery items is easier than ever. Plus they keep your pantry organized and tidy. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
These Slippers Are A Must-Have This WinterThis is an item that both my sister and I recently ordered, though I can't take the credit. She influenced me. These slippers are ridiculously soft and fluffy and will have you feeling like you're walking on a cloud. We've already decided to get our mom these for Christmas as well! - Riley Schnepf
Keep Your Drawers Organized With This Sock OrganizerI have been on a huge organization kick lately, which means I’ve been buying organization items like crazy. This sock organizer is one of my favorite purchases! It helps me keep track of my socks (goodbye mismatched socks) while keeping my drawer nice and neat. - Riley SchnepfView on Amazon
This Eye Gel Is A Customer FavoriteI told myself I wasn’t going to buy anything on Prime Day this year, but lo and behold — I found a deal that I just couldn’t resist. I’ve been eyeing this eye gel (yes, pun intended) for a while, and Prime Day gave me the perfect reason to try it with a 60 percent off deal. So, basically, I got a nice eye gel for less than $10. So far, it’s been helping my eyes feel hydrated and plump, especially after a long day’s work. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
These Sleep Headphones That Will Help You Snooze BetterI bought a pair of expensive sleep headphones for my partner years ago, and they sadly got ruined (don’t ask how). This year, I decided to replace them as a small anniversary present — so don’t be fooled by the low price of these headphones. They’ve got some quality sound and are super comfortable to sleep in. My partner said they were good for “shutting out the world" when trying to go to sleep, so if that’s not a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is. They’re also useful for running or walking on brisk, fall mornings. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
This Hand Cream That Can Soothe The Driest Winter SkinAs the seasons change, my skin tends to get pretty dry. That goes double for my hands. All that antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer can really be harsh, so it’s important to also hydrate your skin’s protective barrier. This hand cream actually healed a rough patch that was forming near my wrist, and it only has a light scent (so I won’t get sick of putting it on). Plus, a little goes a very long way since it’s so rich. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
These Face Masks That Fit Better On Your NoseFace masks are the new normal, so I occasionally buy a new pack of reusable ones to slowly build up my arsenal. I liked these masks particularly for their structure around the nose. They’re designed to sit comfortably on your nose and have a bit of wire to let you sculpt the mask to your face. They were a bit large for me at first (but fit my partner perfectly), but after a romp in the dryer, they shrunk just a little and fit a lot more comfortably. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
This Yoga Mat That's Easier On Sensitive Knees And HandsI like yoga but I don’t do it often because it can be very hard on my knees and hands. It was only recently that I realized that I didn’t actually have to settle for a standard mat. Based on a recommendation from a friend who has the same issue, I got this mat that is double the thickness of a regular one. While it’s a bit larger all rolled up, it feels like doing yoga on a cloud. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
This Wireless Mouse That Won't Break The BankI also edit videos, so using my laptop’s trackpad can be a little annoying when I’m trying to work on fine details. So, I broke down and bought a mouse. This little wireless mouse is actually one of my favorite purchases because not only it was affordable, it also looks good and can work without a mousepad. I chose rose gold (because that’s the kind of person I am) but there are also lots of colors to choose from. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
This Collapsible Water Bottle To Stay Hydrated Without The BulkNow we enter my friend’s shopping lists starting with this nifty, collapsible water bottle. A friend recommended this to me for two reasons. One, because it is a great thing to carry for workouts. Two, she specifically bought it for a trip she was planning (it sadly got postponed). Because of its collapsible design, you can take it anywhere without worrying about extra weight or bulk, making it excellent for commuters or people to live out of a suitcase. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
This Camera Shutter Remote To Make Travel Photos A SnapI was surprised by this purchase because the friend who recommended it to me is not a professional photographer. Instead, she bought it to make taking travel photos easier. This remote makes it so you can take photos of yourself without having to mess with your camera’s timer. It can also be very useful for people who like to take selfies. - Andrea RomanoView on Amazon
These Lighted Nail Clippers To Protect Tiny HandsAnother friend of mine is having a baby soon, so naturally, her entire list was stuff to get ready for her family's newest addition. One thing that intrigued me was these lighted nail cutters. In general, they're for busy parents who need to cut their baby's nails safely while it's sleeping, but they can be very useful for adults too. It's a pretty small nail cutter, but it certainly makes seeing little details easier. - Andrea Romano
A Mail Holder And Coat Key Rack That Keeps You OrganizedThis key coat rack has been a huge help for me and my family. From the kid’s backpacks to our car keys, it holds everything you need before you walk out the door. There are also sections dedicated to small decorations and notepads/books —and thankfully, it's very affordable. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
A Stylish And Sanitary Soap DispenserI actually have two of these automated soap dispensers in my home, and they’ve both performed very well after lots of use. The waterproof base and sleek design make them perfect for almost any bathroom or kitchen. It works with just about every type of liquid soap, and the amount of soap that gets dispensed is actually adjustable. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
Storage Cubes That Organize Every SpaceThese storage cubes are simple yet incredibly functional. You can use them in your closet, under your bed, in your kid’s rooms, or just about any place you can think of. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
Silicone Sponges For A Deep CleanSilicone scrubbers are super underrated. I’ve had these in my sink for a few weeks now and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to traditional sponges. The comfortable grip keeps the sponge secure in your hand while you scrub away at those stubborn stains. These sponges are also very versatile, you can use them on your car, household furniture, or to clean fruits and veggies. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
A Magic Eraser That Makes Messes DisappearI’m convinced my wife purchased these magic erasers with me in mind. They quickly and easily clean all the messes I make around the house without having to break out four different cleaning materials — all you need is a little water, elbow grease, and you’re good to go. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
A Bluetooth Speaker With A Unique TwistWe’re always looking for ways to spruce up our backyard. This awesome Bluetooth speaker gives us the look and sound we needed to make entertaining our company that much easier. The ambient LED flame even resembles a real tiki torch, while the impressive sound quality is sure to please! - Josh SmithView on Amazon
A Portable Neck Massager That Relieves Some Serious TensionThis thing feels absolutely amazing. It massages in four separate areas at once so it’s guaranteed to hit every spot. It very closely resembles a pair of high-quality headphones so you can wear it while walking through the airport or any public place. - Josh SmithView on Amazon
Charcoal Toothpaste That Keeps Your Smile BrightWho woulda thought that charcoal and coconut would be a good way to keep your teeth clean? This kit comes with a toothbrush, scrubber, whitener, and stain remover to help you brighten your smile. And if that's not enough? The tasty mint flavor will also leave your breath smelling fresh. -Josh SmithView on Amazon
