    I Don't Mean To Alarm You, But These 24 Things All Cost Less Than $5 On Amazon Canada

    Cheap, but also really freaking great.

    1. A handy faux loonie and quarter coin so you can always get a shopping cart — even when you're fresh outta change. They're made of sturdy plastic that won't get caught in the slot and can easily be looped onto your keyring (meaning you'll never be without them).

    2. A bag of toasted coconut smiles that you can sprinkle on your smoothie bowls to give 'em a tropical boost. Reviewers love adding them to salads and desserts, too.

    3. 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.

    4. A bottle of St. Ives body wash that's formulated with oatmeal and shea butter to soothe and moisturize your skin. Reviewers love the vanilla scent and say it lathers up like a dream.

    5. A three-pack of Pears soap bars that'll help you achieve the full, fluffy brows of your dreams. Simply swipe a spoolie across the top of a dampened bar, then get to brushin' those tiny hairs into place.

    6. A pack of birthday cake Oreos that'll make every day feel like a party. If you love sandwich cookies and funfetti, these will probably be your new favourite snack.

    7. An e.l.f. lip liner with a unique triangle-shaped tip that'll make it easy to create a thick or thin line around your pout. Reviewers love how creamy it is and say that the colour lasts all day long.

    8. A pair of hydrating Aveeno hand masks if your digits could use a little TLC and hand cream just isn't cutting it. Reviewers say they're great for eczema and can transform even the driest, most cracked hands.

    9. A baking soda deodorizer that'll suction right to the inside wall of your fridge and keep your appliance from getting stinky. Reviewers love that it doesn't take up valuable shelf space like the traditional boxed version.

    10. A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sheets that'll make cleaning up messes in hard-to-reach places a lot easier. They're more flexible than an OG Magic Eraser, meaning they can get them into tinier nooks and crannies.

    11. A tube of Maybelline Great Lash mascara that's been around forever and still deserves all the awards for being so awesome. It'll condition your wispies and won't leave your hairs all clumped together (what more could you want in a mascara?).

    12. 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).

    13. A Revlon nail file that 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.

    14. A pack of erasers for when you need to edit your own work. They're latex-free and won't make crumbly messes like traditional rubber alternatives.

    15. A pack of colour-changing white hot chocolate that's a magical twist on your signature fall drink. Reviewers say it tastes like birthday cake flavour, making it even more delish.

    16. A book of temporary shark tattoos if your love for Shark Week is next level. It may even inspire you to get some legit ink (I mean, a sleeve of a great whites and hammerheads seems pretty cool to me).

    17. A tub of cocoa butter Vaseline that'll bring some moisture back into your Sahara-dry skin. Reviewers say the scent is heavenly and love using it as a lip mask when their smiles feel like sandpaper.

    18. A pack of chisel-tipped BIC highlighters that'll make your most important notes stand out. As an added bonus, they won't dry out when you leave their caps off for hours.

    19. A relaxing Clean & Clear jelly sheet mask that'll soothe your skin with the help of seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid. Reviewers love that it has a cooling effect and say it leaves their skin looking soft, plump, and healthy.

    20. 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.

    21. A shaker of Old Bay that should be called Old Bae, because you'll put it before anything else in your pantry. It's a must for any seafood lover and is equally delightful on veggies if you're plant-based or tend to steer clear of under-the-sea foods.

    22. A pocket-sized tube of shoe goo to help repair your busted footwear. Reviewers love that it's completely waterproof and transparent, so it'll protect your kicks without ruining how they look.

    23. A Wet n Wild retractable eyeliner pencil that you can use to smudge out your lashline or fill in your waterline. It's waterproof, meaning you won't have to reapply after a rainstorm.

    24. And finally, a box of Annie's white cheddar mac for when you've got a case of the munchies, but are too lazy to cook yourself a feast.
