Knowing what to buy on Amazon can help you save big.

You already know that Amazon is one of the most convenient and efficient ways to shop. The mega online retailer offers most of the same products as brick-and-mortar retailers in one place, so when you're pressed for time or searching for an obscure item, the site can save the day.

What you might not know, however, is that Amazon offers many products much cheaper than other retailers. Here are just a few everyday items you can buy for less on Amazon.
