Who doesn’t love online shopping? Probably only people who don’t use the internet, right?! While it can be fun to traverse through malls and brick and mortar stores, there is just something so enticing about the opportunity to have anything you could possibly want shipped to you after only a few minutes of searching online. Amazon Prime is definitely one of the most useful tools ever invented.
I have come to the not so stark realization that I make the majority of my purchases online nowadays. While not all of those purchases may be necessary, some of them are incredibly useful. In fact, they are so useful that I just feel compelled to share them with all of my lovely followers. In all seriousness, I do feel that some of these products have drastically improved my life this year. So, without further ado, let’s start with the list:
My Top 5 Most Useful Online Purchases in 2017
I did a lot of traveling in 2017. Being that I am a college student and a blogger, it is definitely convenient to be able to have my laptop on hand when I am waiting around in airports, on the train, etc. Before I bought my laptop bag, I would awkwardly try to squeeze my books and computer into a backpack or suitcase where I could not conveniently reach anything. Now, however, I have a stylish bag that I can carry close to me like a purse and still fit all of my computer supplies inside. Additionally, it is super easy to get my laptop in or out of the bag with ease. Compared to the other bags I looked at online, I preferred this one because of its chic and fashionable patterns.

2.Memory Foam Neck Pillow
In addition to a fabulous laptop bag, one of my favorite purchases this year for when I am traveling is my insanely comfortable memory foam neck pillow. I used to think that I was not a neck pillow gal. I just didn’t see how these things were comfortable. However, I truly believe that I simply did not have a comfortable neck pillow before this one. I usually have so much trouble sleeping on plane rides. With this neck pillow, I have slept like a well behaved baby on all of my recent trips. It is also great for long car rides. The memory foam gives me the perfect amount of support to avoid cramping and neck pain throughout the trip. Additionally, it is way comfier than the pillows provided by the airlines. If you are going to purchase a neck pillow, this is a worthwhile investment. Click the link below for more details.
3.Lens Cleaning Kit
I am still new to photography. I will admit that since I got my camera that I have been reluctant towards cleaning my lens simply because I didn’t know how. There have been several times that there was a piece of dust on my lens which I tried to remove and ended up making a bigger mess than I started with. The worst feeling is when you know there is something on your lens, but you can’t do anything about it because you don’t have anything to clean it with.
Of course, I want to protect my lenses. However, I don’t want to ruin them by trying to clean them with different products. I also don’t want to come home and try to post-process blobs and specks out of my photos for hours. Finally, I did some research online. I found out that there are safe ways to clean your lens. The great thing about this cleaning kit is that it provides several tools that you can use to do so. It’s perfect, convenient, and cheap. Click the link below for more details.
Believe it or not, the house we are living in right now has no closets whatsoever (I told you it’s hard to believe). Therefore, I have absolutely no storage space except for the storage spaces we physically brought into the house. Let me tell, we have a lot of stuff. I bought my cube cabinet a few months ago and began my search on Amazon for the perfect cubes shortly after. Finally, I found these adorable chevron cubes that fit perfectly in my house. The design is subtle yet fabulous. Not to mention, there are many different colors and patterns available to choose from. The cubes are definitely one of my favorite 2017 online purchases.

5.Glass Food Storage Containers
Okay ladies and gentlemen, here it is: my favorite useful purchase from 2017. Well, I should say purchases because I loved these containers so much that I ordered quite a few packages of them. These glass food storage containers are perfect for meal prepping. As stated above, I have been quite busy the past couple of months. Since my husband and I both work at night, we rarely eat dinner together. Instead, I cook a lot on Sundays and pre-pack meals for both of us to take to work each day of the week.
When I first started doing meal prepping, I was using plastic storage containers. However, these containers were flimsy, expensive, and did not last very long. Additionally, if I packed anything with sauce in the plastic containers, they would be stained for weeks. Finally, I found these glass storage containers on Amazon and they have met all of my food packing needs. They are incredibly durable, easy to clean, and long-lasting. I even love that they come with their own silverware so I don’t have to wasteful with plastic forks and knives. I would recommend these to anyone. Click the link below for more details.
