30 $5 & Under Products On Amazon That Make Life Easier

Pet peeves: large, small, and in between, I have them all. And if there are handy gadgets out there to make life easier for me, I'm down, but one has to ask: How much are they? How about some products on Amazon that are $5 and under? Because another pet peeve of mine is spending too much money.

Yep — even if you're only willing to spare the change that's rattling around in your couch cushions, there’s something out there (and by out there, I mean on Amazon) that can solve your every aggravation, no matter how obscure. Whether it’s your sheets slipping off your mattress while you're in bed, the fact that your phone slips out of your hand every time you're trying to watch a video, or your bra strap sliding down your shoulder every 10 minutes, hey, I feel your pain, and there's a product for both of those irritating little things. But wait, there's more: that product can be shipped to you while you're sitting on the very couch that you pulled that change out of.

Thanks to Amazon, you can also exorcise your pet peeve demons as soon as you finish reading this. I know. Thank me later. Right now, get shopping.

You know how it's like trying to tango with an octopus when you attempt to fill slouchy, misbehaving bags with chopped fruits and veggies? These clips make it feel like you have a sous chef: You set them down on your work surface, where they remain secure thanks to their non-slip rubber base, and fasten the bag under the clip via the adjustable arms.

3. This Gadget Insures Your Fingers Against Kitchen Mishaps

AllLife Finger Guard, $2, Amazon

For less than $2, you can pick up this nifty kitchen accessory and keep all your digits intact. That seems like a small price to pay when it comes to protecting your fingers, especially when it means giving them a stainless steel shield against sharp knife blades when chopping and slicing. Wear this device like a ring on one finger of the hand that anchors your food; use the "shield" portion to guide the blade as it comes down to cut. It's also a great product for protecting a fresh mani!


4. These Pepper Corers Make An Aggravating Cooking Task Simple

Crafted from high-quality ABS, these tools dramatically simplify the cleanup process that comes with cooking these garden favorites; simply push them in at the top and twist, and the core will pull right back out with its seeds intact. Some reviewers note that the smaller corer also works on strawberries.


5. A Super Versatile Brush That Cleans All Your Narrow Glassware

Newcomdigi Bottle Brush, $4, Amazon

This kitchen brush is incredibly versatile: It features a 90-degree bending end, which makes it incredible at cleaning a wide variety of drinkware and getting down to the bottom of many other hard-to-reach areas, including corners, edges, and the narrow necks of bottles, vases and the like. Crafted from food-grade stainless steel with nylon bristles, it has a very skinny design and long handle to reach into crevices and cramped vessels.


6. A Small Button That Adds Major Functionality To Your Cell Phone

Evermarket Finger Ring Cell Holder/Kickstand, $3, Amazon

This little gadget affixes to the back of your phone and turns into a kickstand using premium 3M adhesive, so it's able to recline on any level surface in either landscape or portrait mode. Even better, the flexible joint and invisible spindle on the ring of the mount helps it rotate smoothly in phases between 360- or 180-degrees, so you're able to switch positions quickly and easily. It also functions as a grip, car mount, and cable winder.


7. The Kitchen Accessory That Holds Your Veggies With The Tenacity Of A Stainless Steel Claw

NYKKOLA Vegetable Holder, $4, Amazon

You'll feel like Wolverine's chef-y cousin with this gadget in your kitchen arsenal: Providing a great way to keep your precious fingers out of the way and clear of the knife blade while slicing, it arms you with a stainless steel claw to hold your veggies down when it's prep time.

Then, just fill in with brow pencil or brow powder and go.


10. These Clips Prevent Your Sheets From Bunching Up And Slipping Off

Huaminxiangyue Elastic Sheet Clips, $5 (Set Of 4), Amazon

These sheet clips are incredibly simple, but clear up an incredibly aggravating problem: The bottom sheet that slips off the bed and ends up wadded around your feet or near your waist by the time you wake up. Simply adjust these fasteners to the correct length to stretch across your mattress, then attach to the corners of your sheets. Much like the suspenders that hug Santa's shoulders and prevent his pants from beating a hasty retreat, so too will your sheets remain exactly where you put them.


11. This Glove Keeps Your Hands Safe While Using Hot Styling Tools

Kiloline Styling Heat Glove, $5, Amazon

This glove, a cousin of those popular for use in the kitchen, is designed to keep your fingers safe from those super-hot irons and wands you use to style your hair. It comes in one size, is suitable to wear on either hand, and protects from burns for 10 to 12 seconds, but still allows you to feel the heat so you'll be able to judge how your strands are faring.


12. These Five-In-One Survival Bracelets Are A Must-Have For Camping And Hiking

ECVILLA Paracord Survival Bracelets, $5 (Set of 2), Amazon

14. These Dryer Balls Reduce Wrinkles And Static

Woolous Dryer Balls, $5 (Set of 3), Amazon

Crafted from 100 percent organic wool, these amazing dryer balls rely on the power of physics to help dry your clothes faster — without wrinkles or static. Tumbling around in the machine, they work to separate the garments and promote airflow between and around them, cutting down on drying time by at least 10 to 15 minutes per load. Add a few drops of essential oil to each ball and your laundry will be lightly scented each time, too. It's a great natural alternative to those chemical-laden fabric fresheners, too.


15. This Peeler Quickly And Easily "Unzips" Any Citrus Fruit

CJESLNA Citrus Peeler, $1, Amazon

Investing a buck in this tool is a no-brainer if you love oranges and grapefruits, or frequently use lemons and limes in your recipes. Crafted from durable hard plastic, you insert the blade end of the tool into the top of the fruit, then use the curved design to follow down the rounded side of the skin.

16. These Reusable Rubber Ties Have So Many Functions

Great for use outdoors too, the strong internal wire is sheathed in a soft rubber exterior that's UV resistant and waterproof.


17. This Tool Makes Creating The Perfect Cat Eye Easy

Miss Rose Eyeliner Stamp, $3, Amazon

This ingenious device takes the guesswork out of making neat and equal, much less stylish-looking, cat eyes. The dual-sided pen has a brush on one end for freehanded styling, but the real secret is in the stamp on the other side.

20. These Clips Turn Any Bra Into A Racer Back, And Keep Those Straps Up

21. These Organizers Will Keep You "Posted" On Where You Stand With Chores And Studying

Redi-Tab Divider Sticky Notes, $4 (Pad of 60), Amazon

How cool are these multicolored sticky notes with the divider tabs? They're ideal for studying or compiling a presentation, but I can envision them being equally helpful in highlighting the persistently helpful parts of the to-do notebooks in which I maintain my ever-present lists. Lined for ease in keeping your notes-to-self legible, they come in cheerful colors to add a little pep to your day, and they use water-based adhesive.


22. These Rubber Grippers Help Pry The Lid Off Of Just About Anything

24. These Under-Eye Shields Keep Your Concealer And Face Makeup In Tact

Braceus Disposable Eye Shadow Shields, $5 (50 Pieces), Amazon

These pads are lifesavers if you've ever gotten your face on and then discovered that you've inadvertently coated half your lower cheeks in eye makeup.

25. These Bag Handles Give You Superstrength

Okay, so this genius device doesn't exactly give you super strength, but it does make it possible for you to carry so much stuff with one hand that you'll feel like you're superhuman.

Fheaven Folding Cutting Board, $5, Amazon

This cutting board is so clever, it does several jobs in your kitchen.
