In these modern times of free shipping and express two-day delivery, it can be a challenge to refrain from clicking that "Add To Cart" button every time you happen across an awesome product. Even taking the most cursory glance at my bank account is a persuasive argument in favor of fiscal responsibility, which is why I've made a deal with myself: impulse buys are restricted to all the cool products on Amazon that are only $10 — everything else? It's gotta sit in my shopping cart for at least 24 hours before I buy it.
And while that might not sound like a lot of fun, it's all about perspective. Would you prefer to take home a $30 shirt — or would you rather snag yourself a cast iron skillet, anti-chafing balm, and a toilet spray made with 100 percent real gold nano-particles, all for the same price? To me, the choice is simple.
So whether you're looking for hidden gems on Amazon to treat yourself, or you're simply trying to reign in some frivolous spending habits, look no further: I've rounded up some of the most highly-rated products available that won't break your bank account, even if you buy all of them.
1. The Mask That's Carbonated For Extra Cleansing Power
Not only does the clay in the Elizavecca bubble clay mask help control any excess oil on your skin, but the added carbonation lets this mask reach deep into your pores to remove toxins and other impurities. You only need to wear this mask for five minutes for the bubbles to start getting rid of any unwanted grime or dirt — and it's also great for helping to remove any stubborn blackheads. This really foams up on your face, so it's tingly and fun to wear.
2. A Rolling Massage Stick That You Can Use All Over Your Body
If your muscles have ever been sore and throbbing after a long, stressful day, then this roller massage stick is an absolute must-have. It relieves pain in your feet, legs, thighs, calves, quads, or back, and is incredible pre- or post-workout. This roller is compact enough that it can easily fit into your carry-on bag or backpack, and because it's handheld, you get to determine how intense or light the massage is.
3. The Patch That Helps Clear Away Unwanted Blemishes
These Nexcare acne covers are excellent at reducing the inflammation in unwanted pimples. These convenient acne patches work like sponges to remove pus and oil, and they cover the actual blemish: so they'll also help prevent you from picking at it. You can wear these patches while you sleep or during the day, and since each one is transparent you can barely tell you're wearing it.
4. A Handheld Fan With Three Different Cooling Speeds

7. The Wall Adapter With Extra Outlets So You Won't Run Out Of Space

11. A Hamper That Hangs Over Your Door To Save You Space
