Amazon: It's a love-hate relationship. On the one hand, it seems like you could just go to the store and get your toilet paper yourself. On the other, it's just too easy, especially when it comes to those routine things you just know you're always going to use. Here are the household items Hunker editors almost always have in their carts:

Litter Genie 4-Pack Refill, $29.99

"If you have a cat, the Litter Genie is a pretty genius solution for storing smelly poos." — Leo, Sr. Content Director

Tinkee Tea Filter Bags, $3.49

"These are super affordable and easy to use, they've quickly become part of my morning routine. You can also get creative and use them to stash or steep a variety of things." — Eva, Associate Editor

Stasher Reusable Silicon Food Bag, $11.99

"Great for cutting down on single-use plastic waste, and you can toss them in the dishwasher." — Lacey, Sr. Social Media Manager

3-Pack Variety Now Essential Oils, $17.99

"For my diffuser." — Branché, Social Media Specialist

Mrs. Meyer's Basil Scent Drying Sheets, $5.97

"Smells nothing like basil." — Eve, VP of Content

Indoor Plant Fertilizer, $14.95

"This all-purpose fertilizer is always in my Amazon cart during the spring-summer growing season. It works for all my plant babies, from the little succulents I keep outside to my giant indoor rubber plant." — Gina, Audience Development Director

Cascade Platinum Plus Dishwasher Detergent, $19.99

"I run my dishwasher every night (so many dishes) so I've got this on Subscribe & Save. This way it shows up automatically every month, and I don't have to think about it. I unbox it and then reorganize the pretty little pods in a tall glass container under my sink." — Laurie, Director of Editorial Operations

Mrs. Meyers Honeysuckle Hand Soap (3-Pack), $9.95

"I don't know how to describe this scent — it's sweet and florally, but not overbearing — but I want every surface of my house to smell like it. (TBH, I'd even wear it as a perfume if I could.)" — Katie, Commerce Editor
