The only thing better than finding awesome stuff might be finding awesome stuff at super low prices. I get a particular thrill when I search high and low for a great deal on a really good product, and research shows that I’m not alone. The human brain begins to release dopamine, sometimes referred to as the feel-good neurotransmitter, in anticipation of a cheap price tag — err, reward — so the hunt is all part of the fun.

And in true 21st-century fashion, shoppers don’t even have to leave the comfort of their couch or bed to enjoy the thrill. The following list is chock full of smart items that make life easier. From concentrated foot creams that repair dry, cracked skin to vented microwave covers so you can reheat a meal without worrying about messes, these items are all incredibly useful. And since every single one is $30 or less, you just might end up scoring more than one deal while you're at it.
