    You're Not Gonna Believe This, But These 37 Things All Cost Less Than $9 On Amazon Canada

    Treat yourself without spending oodles of money.

    1. A bottle of Miracle-Gro plant food that'll give your pothos and palms the vitamins and nutrients they needs to grow big and strong. Just pump it directly onto the soil (or mix it with H2O in your watering can) and watch your plant babies flourish.

    2. A colouring book for adults filled with under-the-sea doodles for you to shade in. They're so pretty, you may even wanna hang them on your walls when you're done.

    3. A tube of Maybelline Colossal mascara that'll leave you with the full, fluffy lashes of their dreams without the help of falsies. Reviewers say it's on par with offerings from luxury brands and love that it doesn't flake.

    4. A starfish-shaped drain catcher that’ll trap hair before it gets into your pipes, keeping them clog-free. It may actually save you from hiring a plumber and fighting with your roommate over who's going to clean all of the gross stuff out of your bathtub (a win-win in my books).

    5. A tube of heel balm that'll bring some much-needed moisture back into your cracked, dry tootsies. It won't leave behind any greasiness, either — you'll be able to slide comfortably into socks a few minutes after applying it.

    6. A lateral swivel outlet that'll keep your plugs from poking out of your wall. It's equipped with three three-prong outlets, giving you even more space to power up your electronics.

    7. A three-pack of Pears soap bars that'll help you achieve the full, fluffy brows of your dreams. Simply swipe a dampened bar with a spoolie and brush those tiny hairs into place.

    8. A pedicure sponge that's infused with shea butter, tea tree oil, and olive oil that'll leave your feet feeling and smelling, like, stupid good. Reviewers say it's amazing for people with cracked feet and that it washes away dead skin cells like no one's business.

    9. A set of classic Lodge pan scrapers you can use to get hardened-on bits of food off your cookware. Reviewers love that they can use them while pans are still hot and that they don't have to worry about them melting.

    10. A bicycle bottle opener you can use to crack a cold one with the greatest of ease. Reviewers say it's small, but sturdy, meaning you won't have to fight with your bottle caps.

    11. A bestselling gel toilet stamper that'll clean away stains and rings with every flush. The stamps leave behind a fresh scent, so your bathroom will always smell great (no matter what goes on in there).

    12. A trio of retractable ballpoint pens with four different colours of ink so you can constantly switch things up. Now you can seamlessly shift from writing to editing without rifling through your entire pencil case.

    13. A bottle of Sally Hansen cuticle gel that'll break down your dehydrated cuticles in a mere 15 seconds. It's packed with moisturizing aloe and chamomile and is also great for softening calluses if your foot file just isn't doing it for you.

    14. A pack of mini corkscrew hair pins that will keep your updo secure and looking stylish from dawn 'til dusk. One of these little guys has the holding power of 20 bobby pins, so you'll only need to use one or two.

    15. A cocoa butter stick to combat dry lips, soothe and smooth flaky patches, and heal scars. Reviewers love that it's larger than a tube of lip balm (it's about the size of a glue stick), meaning they can use it on larger patches of skin.

    16. A bottle of super-strong Gorilla Glue that'll help you put your broken things back together. It's durable enough to withstand intense weather, so your stuff will remain intact even through a heat wave or polar vortex.

    18. A bottle of avocado oil that has a higher smoke point than olive oil, making it great for people who like to fry their stir fries at the highest of temps. It doesn't have much flavour, either, so it won't mess with the taste of your dish.

    19. A dual-ended tube of e.l.f lash and brow gel that'll help you achieve a "no makeup" makeup look in seconds. It's not sticky at all, but will lift your brow hairs and lashes to the high heavens and keep them there all day long.

    20. A copy of Star Wars Mad Libs that'll have you creating funny fill-in-the-blank stories featuring your favourite Jedis. You may not have cry-laughed during The Empire Strikes Back, but these twisted tales are sure to leave you chuckling.

    21. A heat-resistant mat that'll keep your styling tools from messing with your bathroom counter. The textured surface will keep your wands and straighteners from rolling around, so you won't have to worry about them sliding off the edge of your sink and singeing your toes.

    22. A Revlon nail file you can use to buff your talons to perfection. One side is designed for smoothing while the other has a a coarser grain and can be used to even out jagged edges.

    23. A roll of extra-strong Gorilla tape so you can fix rips, cracks, and tears in your stuff. It can stand up to moisture, UV rays, and extreme temps — you'll never have to worry about your patch job falling apart on you.

    24. A password logbook if you can't ever remember your login info for anything. Since it's arranged in alphabetical order, you won't have to flip through every page to find what you're looking for.

    25. A trio of intense rescue shots that are like the hair equivalent of an elixir shot at a juice bar. They'll bring their dry tresses back to life and save you from split ends, too.

    26. A four-pack of transparent ring adjusters that'll make your bands fit half a size to a full size smaller, so you won't have to pay to get your jewellery professionally resized. Reviewers say they're great for people whose fingers change size when the temperature rises and drops.

    28. A tube of hydrating sweet almond oil from Burt's Bees that'll save your lips from feeling like sandpaper. It'll also give your pout a bit of shine, so you won't have to pile on the gloss.

    31. A three-pack of orange-flavoured Tic Tacs that you'll wanna keep in your bag at all times. You could also opt for the mint ones if you're looking to freshen your breath (they're also under $5).

    32. A double shower hook that'll suction right to your tiles and give you easy access to your razor, loofah, and washcloth. If you don't have enough space around your tub for your essential accessories, this little gadget is a must-have.
