One of my favorite things is opening my front door and discovering a perfectly crisp, brown cardboard box just sitting there waiting for me to carry inside and open. Even though I absolutely ordered whatever's in that box a day or two before, I'm somehow still weirdly surprised and delighted that it's managed to make its way through the world and onto my front stoop. (The magic of mail, I guess.) And here's the thing: I'm looking forward to being surprised when all these products under $30 on Amazon show up on my doorstep, too.
At under $30, each of these products are affordable enough that you won't have to think twice about adding them to your cart — yet they still manage to feel like a treat. Even better, a lot of these items are way under $20 — like the mini waffle maker that you'll use every Saturday morning and the body balm that'll hydrate literally every inch of your skin — which means there's something for those of us who are on a tighter budget.
Plus, all these products are on Amazon Prime, so you won't have to wait more than two days for that magical doorstep feeling.
