Over the past few months I’ve noticed that credit card bills have slowly been trending upwards, which is why I’ve decided to start saving money — the only problem is that I’m a bit of an impulse shopper. That’s why I’ve made a deal with myself: I’m still allowed to buy whatever I want, but only if the item is 1) something I’m going to be using on an everyday basis, and 2) it has to be $25 or less.

With that in mind, I’ve put together this list of absurdly clever and useful products that cost less than $25. From rust-resistant drain protectors to reusable pet hair removers, you’re almost guaranteed to get a ton of use out of each product I’ve included below. So if you’re trying to save money — or if you’re simply trying to scratch that impulse-shopper itch — then you’ll definitely want to keep scrolling for more.


This pet hair remover that’s infinitely reusable

Whereas lint rollers use wasteful sticky sheets, this pet hair roller features hundreds of tiny bristles instead, making it infinitely reusable. A few gentle swipes are all it takes to rid your upholstery, clothes, and more of pet hair — and the built-in dustbin holds onto all of it until you’re ready to empty it out into the trash.


A veggie brush made with 2 different types of bristles

Some types of produce require a gentler touch when scrubbing them clean, which is why this veggie brush is worth a look. It features two types of bristles: angled grey ones in the front, and stiff straight ones in the back. The straight ones are ideal for hearty veggies, like potatoes or radishes, while the angled bristles are better suited for delicate mushrooms or berries. Plus, the ergonomic design fits comfortably in either hand.


The adhesive coaster that helps keep your drinks from tipping over

Place your drink inside this coaster, and its raised walls combined with an adhesive base will help keep it from spilling over should someone accidentally bump into it. There’s a gap in the back so that you can also use it with handled mugs — and many reviewers even wrote about how it’s “cat proof.”


The versatile kitchen stirrer that combines a fork & whisk into 1

Whether you need to whisk, stir, mix, or scoop your ingredients, this stirrer has got you covered. The tines make it similar to a fork — however, each tine features an open gap so that you can also use it as a whisk when needed. Plus, its textured handle helps you keep a firm grip when mixing.


These helpful organizers that fit into the gaps between your car seats

Tired of losing items between your car seats? Place these organizers in the gaps, and they’ll help keep items from falling down while also giving you extra storage space. They’re made from sleek faux leather that blends into your car’s upholstery — and the adjustable fit means they’ll work inside just about any vehicle. Choose from four colors: black, gray, tan, or black with red stitching.


A rust-resistant drain protector made from stainless steel

A visit from the plumber is rarely ever cheap, so why not stop clogs from happening in the first place with help from this drain protector?
