This Is What People Are Buying On Amazon This Week

People are getting really serious about popping their pimples this week.

Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

This week there’s a definite trend of people being lazy — remote-controlled outlets for people who hate getting up, garlic presses for people who don’t want to put the work in to chop something, and breakfast sandwich makers for people who can’t deal with toasters and a frying pan. This one’s for you, lazy people.

1. These cable organizers that will keep your desk from being the shitshow that it probably is right now ($6.99for a pack of six).

So you can avoid slamming your head on your nightstand every time you go to reach for your charger.

This Star Wars Death Star maze puzzle that also has lights and sound ($33.95).

Most promising review: “This thing is epic. If you are even remotely a fan of Star Wars and/or puzzles, you will need to add this to your collection. It is highly addicting, and the fact that it lights up and makes sounds is icing on the cake. The tracks are completely themed to the Death Star, and you can even see little rivets, grooves, stairs and rails that look accurate to the original model. You will see familiar objects, such as the X-Wing, Darth Vader, the exhaust system and even the platform on which Luke and Vader had their duel.” —Jared
