When a great item that happens to be extremely affordable hits the market, it's almost guaranteed to quickly sell out. And if you're a shopper intent on scoring good deals (who isn't?), it can be hard to keep up. For that reason, I've compiled this list of more than 50 awesome and cheap things that are reviewer-approved, wallet-friendly, and (for the time being) still on the cyber shelves.
Near the top of the list is this compact rice cooker that's racked up more than 24,000 Amazon ratings (impressively high ones, at that). Without taking up much kitchen storage space, it makes fluffy rice, quinoa, and barley, and the removable steaming tray means you can cook veggies while you're at it.
And when it comes to braving frigid weather, these neck warmers are built to block out the cold. Revered by more than 2,000 reviewers, they tick all the boxes: they're made from ultra-warm thermal material with a cozy sherpa lining, and they can be pulled up over the lower half of your face when the wind gets particularly biting — whether you're on the slopes or just crossing the street. Scroll on for more excellent deals on great products that are sure to sell out soon.
