It's Suspect How Affordable These 36 Five-Star Products On Amazon Are

It doesn't matter how much money you have — saving some cash is always a good idea. Bill Gates didn't get to where he is today by spending $30 on sushi delivery three nights a week, did he? Well, maybe he did. But while I'm sure it's possible, it's not probable that you'll become the world's next billionaire by doing so. But you know what could help? Saving money on affordable Amazon products so that money can go elsewhere, like starting your own business or buying lottery tickets.

What costs more: shelling out money every month for dryer sheets, or investing in wool dryer balls that may cost a little more, but help save you money in the long run by cutting down the time it takes to dry a load of laundry? Not only are these items super affordable, but a bunch of them can even help save you money over time — nothing says some leftover cash in your pocket like reusable produce bags that help keep your vegetables fresher for longer.

And because the selections in this slideshow are all affordable yet quality products on Amazon, you can be sure that even though you're getting a deal, you won't be walking away with a flimsy product that won't hold up over time.

Unlike other flat irons, this one has a worldwide dual voltage so that you can take it with you anywhere on vacation. It also goes up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.


2. A Baking Mat Made From Non-Stick Silicone

Velesco Silicone Baking Mat Set, $17 (3 Pack), Amazon

Instead of prying your food off baking trays that really only serve to burn the bottom of whatever you're cooking, grab this silicone baking mat set and ensure that your food gets evenly cooked without sticking to the tray. Each order comes with three mats, and not only will you not need to add any oil or grease to your pans to keep your food from sticking, but they're so easy to clean that even hard to remove items like burnt sugar fall right off.


3. The Bath Mat That's Resistant To Mildew

Gorilla Grip Original Bath Mat, $14, Amazon

Stepping onto a bath mat that's just brown or discolored from mold or mildew underneath it is among the last things you want when trying to get clean, but luckily the Gorilla Grip original bath mat is both antibacterial and mildew-resistant to keep your shower floor as clean as possible. And instead of washing it by hand like some bath mats require, all you have to do with this one is throw it in the washing machine.

If you're looking for a quick way to get rid of unwanted dry skin, the OZ Naturals vitamin C facial mask is guaranteed to give you visible results within three days.

And yes, it's even safe for everyday use.


5. The Reusable Grocery Bags That Fold To Fit In Your Pocket

BeeGreen Reusable Grocery Bag Set, $14 (Set of 5), Amazon

Whereas all the reusable grocery bags I own always refuse to fold down into any manageable size, the BeeGreen reusable grocery bag set comes with five bags that fold down to fit right into your pocket or purse. Each bag is made from 100 percent RipStop cloth, which makes it resistant to tearing and perfect for those heavy loads — and each bag can hold a whopping 50 pounds.


6. An Electric Nail Grinder For Pets That's More Effective Than Clippers

Hertzko Electric Pet Nail Grinder, $23, Amazon

Clipping your pet's nails with a regular clipper can easily end in an injured pet, or an injured, um, you after your pet fights and claws you every step of the way — but with the Hertzko electric pet nail grinder, all you have to do is insert your pet's nail into the grinder and let it work its magic. It's specially designed to be super quiet so that your pet won't fear it, and each one is made with a diamond bit grinder that's safer and more effective than a clipper.


7. A Collapsible Bowl That Pops Your Popcorn For You In The Microwave

Salbree Original Popcorn Popper, $13, Amazon

Instead of investing in an air popper that won't do anything else besides pop kernels, try the Salbree original popcorn popper. This popcorn popper not only pops kernels in the convenience of a microwave, but the bowl collapses to save you space whenever you're not using it — and you can choose to use oil or keep it oil-free, too.


8. A Set Of Luxury Bed Sheets With Super Deep Pockets — And Over 18,000 Reviews

HC Collection Hotel Luxury Bed Sheets, $25, Amazon

I have a crazy-deep mattress, and finding quality sheets that are big enough to fit without constantly popping up is almost impossible.

These come in a number of sizes and color options, too.


9. The Shampoo That Uses Argan Oil To Hydrate Your Strands

Maple Holistics Natural Mint Shampoo And Conditioner, $18, Amazon

Formulated with essential oils like argan, eucalyptus, peppermint, and green tea, the Maple Holistics natural mint shampoo and conditioner revives damaged hair by hydrating your strands with nourishing oils to smooth hair from root to tip. And because the formula is plant-based without any potentially harmful chemicals, this shampoo is also completely sulfate- and paraben-free, as well as safe for color treated hair. It's also made to volumize and prevent hair loss.


10. A Dimmable Desk Lamp With A USB Port To Charge Your Devices

Aglaia Dimmable Desk Lamp, $19, Amazon

Sometimes you want a lot of light, and other times you just want a soft glow — depending on how much natural light is in the room. With the Aglaia dimmable desk lamp, you can choose between three brightness settings to get the optimum amount of light no matter where you are, and there's even a bonus USB port located in the base of the lamp so that you can charge your devices while you work or read. The arm is flexible, too, so you can direct it where you choose.


11. The Grip Strength Training Kit Made From Comfortable Silicone

LIVV FITNESS Premium Grip Strength Trainer Kit, $12 (6 Pack), Amazon

Each kit comes with different exercisers up to 11 pounds in resistance, as well as 30-, 40-, and 50-pound hand grip rings so that you get a variety of resistance levels.


12. An Eye Pillow That Doubles As A Compression Pan Relief Mask

Brownmed Eye Pillow Mask, $11, Amazon

Sure, it's great for getting a restful amount of sleep on a red-eye flight, but the Brownmed eye pillow mask can do so much more than block out light — throw it in the freezer for a few hours beforehand to get cooling relief on a hot day, or use it at room temperature and feel the massaging ergoBeads soothe any unwanted puffy, tired eyes. The unique stitching keeps pressure off of eyes, and it's made with a comfortable cotton-Lycra blend.

That's right — you can take these bags to the grocery store, load up on groceries, and then throw them straight into the fridge with these bags; no unpacking necessary.


14. A Makeup Cleanser With Over Hundreds Of Positive Reviews

Banila Co Clean It Zero Sherbert Cleanser, $29, Amazon

Not only is this cleanser made with papaya extract to help naturally exfoliate your skin, but the Banila Co clean it zero sherbert cleanser kicks it up a notch by being able to effectively detoxify your skin without removing any of the natural oils you want to keep — the ones that most cleansers strip away. And with 86 percent positive four- and five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers who describe it as "incredible," you can see why it's one of the top beauty products in South Korea.


15. The Makeup Brushes Made From High-Quality Bamboo

EmaxDesign Professional Bamboo Brush Set, $10, Amazon

Whereas competing makeup brushes will eventually wind up shedding all over your counter, the EmaxDesign professional bamboo brush set will never do that — and are even made by hand. Great for liquids, powders, and creams alike, this set comes with 12 brushes including ones for eyeshadow, foundation, powder, and eyelashes. One Amazon reviewer even raved that "I usually get brushes every six months because of how much other brushes shed, but these are GREAT!"


16. A Pair Of Bluetooth Headphones That Are Sweat And Water-Resistant

Mpow Bluetooth Headphones, $20, Amazon

Having your favorite pair of headphones break just because you worked extra-hard in the gym doesn't exactly encourage you to go back, does it? Luckily, the Mpow Bluetooth headphones are both sweat- and water-resistant, helping to lengthen their lifespan and making them perfect for running, yoga, and more. And unlike other over-the-ear headphones, these ones come with a pair of memory-foam ear tips to provide a comfortable, yet snug fit.


17. The Handy Gadget That Can Charge Four Devices At Once

Hercules Tuff Charging Station, $35, Amazon

Having to hunt around for a USB cable and charging block can get quickly tiresome, but with the Hercules Tuff charging station you'll know exactly where to go to get some juice. Each station can charge four devices at the same time, and come with four USB cables so that you're not stuck having to provide your own. And unlike competitors, this station is able to discern the difference between devices, allowing you to charge a PS4 remote next to an iPhone and Fitbit without having to worry about damage from over-voltage.


18. A Car Mount For Your Smartphone That Can Rotate 360-Degrees

Beam Electronics Universal Car Smartphone Mount, $9, Amazon

Whereas other mounts force you to crane your neck to view your phone from the best angle, the Beam Electronics universal car smartphone mount can rotate 360-degrees so you always have the best viewing angle while driving. This mount can fit nearly every model of smartphone — as long as it's between 1.9 and 3.7 inches wide— and the quick release button makes removing your phone at the end of your drive an effortless experience.


19. The Hygienic Loofah Made From 100 Percent Antibacterial Silicone

Lotus Ana Essentials Loofah Brush, $13, Amazon

Dermatologists recommend that you change out your loofah every three to four weeks, but who actually does that? With the Lotus Ana Essentials loofah brush, you won't have to worry about swapping it out for a new one, as this brush is made from 100 percent antibacterial silicone that's way more hygienic than a traditional loofah. And unlike a regular loofah, this one has different bristles on each side: one side for daily exfoliation, and the other to help with circulation.


20. A Tea Infuser That Works Quicker Than Traditional Infusers

HOUSE AGAIN Loose Leaf Tea Infuser, $10, Amazon

Whereas other infusers confine tea leaves to a confined area, the HOUSE AGAIN loose leaf tea infuser allows the leaves to freely circulate and diffuse quickly. When your tea has steeped to your liking, simply pull the infuser out of your glass to remove all the leaves — and the extra-fine mesh ensures that no leaves accidentally escape into your tea. Bonus: the long folding handles keep you from burning your fingers.


21. The Cloth That Can Absorb Any Type Of Liquid

You could keep wasting money on paper towels that go straight into the trash, or you could grab The Newest Original Shammy chamois and use it over and over again to save you bundles of cash over time. Great for kitchen and garage use alike, this absorbent chamois can be used for almost anything — wipe down your showers to get rid of mildew and soap scum, dry your pets after a bath, or even soak up the majority of a spill by placing the cloth directly on top.


22. A Drying Rack That Sits Overtop Your Kitchen Sink

Surpahs Over The Sink Drying Rack, $24, Amazon

Instead of taking up space in your kitchen with a bulky drying rack, try the Surpahs over the sink drying rack and utilize that giant black hole of unusable space that is normally your kitchen sink. This drying rack is coated in food-grade silicone, with the interior rods being made from rust-resistant steel. And because it's also heat-resistant, this rack can be used as a trivet on your countertops.


23. The Makeup Remover That Doubles As A Skin Cleanser

Organys Deep Cleansing Makeup Remover, $14, Amazon

While it's great for melting away makeup off your face, the Organys deep cleansing makeup remover can also be used as a cleanser that reaches deep to detoxify your pores.

24. A Broom And Mop Holder That Organizes Cluttered Closets

Home-It Mop And Broom Holder, $12, Amazon

Most utility closets are plagued by tangled broom and mop handles that can be a hassle to pull out, but with the Home-It mop and broom holder you can easily organize anything with a long handle.

25. The Toothpaste That Uses Activated Charcoal To Whiten Your Teeth

Cali White Activated Charcoal Toothpaste, $11, Amazon

Whereas most activated charcoal toothpastes only rely on the charcoal to whiten your teeth, the Cali White activated charcoal toothpaste goes the extra mile by using organic coconut oil and baking soda to whiten and keep teeth healthy. And unlike other competing charcoal toothpastes, this one is naturally flavored with peppermint oil to keep your mouth feeling fresh and not chalky.


26. The Bath Towel That Exfoliates And Keeps Skin Smooth

Beauty4U Exfoliating Bath Towel, $7, Amazon

Whereas traditional bath towels only wash your skin, the Beauty4U exfoliating bath towel is made from textured nylon and softens your skin while it exfoliates all over your body. The long length allows you to get those hard-to-reach spots on your back, and nearly any soap can get worked into a lather using this towel. And because it dries quickly, you won't have to worry about any mold or mildew growing in damp conditions.


27. A Water Bottle Cleaning Brush Set That Reaches Every Nook And Cranny

OXO Water Bottle Cleaning Set, $10, Amazon

And as an added bonus, there's even a detailing brush that lets you reach deep into crevices in caps and lids.


28. The Socks That Moisturize Your Feet To Heal Cracked Skin

ZenToes Moisturizing Heel Socks, $12 (4 Pack), Amazon

Every order comes with four socks, and each ZenToes moisturizing heel sock is lined with gel to help relieve dry, cracked, or irritated heels.

And because it weighs just 1 pound, this egg cooker is easily stored in any kitchen, especially since all the included accessories fit inside of it.


30. The Serum That Plumps And Smooths Your Skin

Dr. Brenner Hyaluronic Acid Serum, $9, Amazon

Hyaluronic acid is a great way to visibly plump and smooth your skin, and the Dr. Brenner hyaluronic acid serum is made with 100 percent of the highest-grade you can find.

33. An Essential Oil Diffuser That Doubles As A Cool Mist Humidifier

InnoGear Essential Oil Diffuser, $16, Amazon

Great for adding some humidity into dry, stuffy rooms, the InnoGear essential oil diffuser can work as a cool mist humidifier at the same time it diffuses relaxing essential oils throughout the air.
