We love a good deal and there's only one thing that can make a deal better: it solves a problem. You probably already know that Amazon is loaded with items that meet both criteria, but what you might not know is that there's a secret section with awesome overstock items that can simplify, clear up or just make your life a little bit easier — at a massive markdown.

We combed through hundreds of products — from colorful knives to closet organizing gadgets —and picked out our favorite items. Scroll down for hidden gems to help out around the house.

If you’re looking for a quick fix for your overstuffed closet, these hefty hangers are designed to neatly hold up to five blouses, dresses or pants.

“Love this concept to organize your closet,” wrote a five-star fan. “These worked very well and cleared up so much space in my closet. They are pretty sturdy for the price. I am pleased as of now with this purchase as these hangers have made life a little less stressful when searching for clothing and have made my closet look so nice.”

For a hot meal outdoors, this Dutch oven would make any Survivor contestant drool. Not only does it function as a pot (with cute little legs to stand over a campfire), the lid doubles as a skillet so you can fry up whatever you're craving out in the wilderness.

“I bought this for camping,” wrote a happy camper. “I use the fire to cook all my meals and this thing is awesome. I used the lid only to make breakfast and used the pot to make campfire soup from scratch. If you buy this be sure to treat it with oil every time you clean it so it doesn’t rust. I can see this being the last pot I ever buy. It will last me years.”

If you own a microwave, you know how messy it can get if you don't cover your food. Paper towels or a lid sitting slightly askew work sometimes, but this food-grade silicone cover works all the time to prevent splatter. But clever Amazon shoppers have multiple uses for it.

“​​[I] use it as a splatter cover in the microwave or to wash and strain fruits and vegetables,” a rave reviewer shared. “Very easy to clean. Collapsible to make it even smaller. It may even be used to cover plates when setting up a barbecue. Buy a few. Put them where you can see them and get maximum use.”

There are a lot of reasons to love these knives — not just because they're colorful! To prevent cross-contamination, you can color coordinate them for whatever chopping jobs you're doing, and they all come with sleeves for safety, but shoppers have a multitude of reasons to appreciate them.

“Honestly, I just wanted a good knife set since I'm starting over after my divorce!” shared a newly single shopper. “These knives are amazing! Sharpness is out of this world. They're sturdy and well-crafted! I love them. Be careful.....they cut through virtually anything!!”

This dish drying rack is perfect for small kitchens. It saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water and it rolls up for easy storage.

“Ooooh, I scored big for Valentine’s Day this year!” wrote a doting husband. “My wife loves it. She likes order in her kitchen, and leaving things on the counter to dry is horrific. This little baby is easy to store and unroll for use, and enables one to keep all dishes/pots/pans over the sink. It can be a good space-saver by allowing you to use the area above your sink. Also works well as a cooling rack. So easy to use, and yet so enabling.”

To dress up an empty corner, this floating shelf lets you put all your knickknacks on display.

“Purchased two of these for a small space in my toilet room,” a rave reviewer shared. “The wood was a little light so I stained it to match my existing wood accents. It stained a little darker than I hoped, but they still look and function perfectly! Love the size and look!”
