    31 Genius Products Under $15 You’ll Probably Use Over And Over Again

    Inexpensive and effective!

    1. A rose gold phone stand that'll keep your group chat in full view without even having to pick up your device. It's also great for FaceTime calls, Skype meetings, and watching Queer Eye while you attempt to get some work done on your big screen.

    2. A footed hard-boiled egg container, if you like bringing your protein-packed snacks to-go. It keeps all odours contained and has a little section where you can store your favourite toppings and spices.

    3. An over-the-cabinet hot tool station that'll keep your hairstyling gadgets from taking up a ton of precious cupboard and counter real estate. It's made of steel, so you can throw in your curler or hair dryer while it's still cooling down and not worry about melting anything.

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

    5. A set of slideable webcam covers to make sure no one is spying on you while you're doing very important business (or watching YouTube videos at 3 a.m.). They're super slim, so your computer can still close properly.

    6. A travel-sized Poo-Pourri spray that's small enough to slide in your sleeve or pocket so you can take it with you anywhere. Now you'll leave every bathroom you use smelling like lemon, bergamot, and lemongrass.

    7. A pack of colourful cord protectors that'll keep your wires in place and save them from fraying when they're on their last legs. The different colours will help you identify which cord belongs to who, so you'll never feud with your partner or roommates over stealing your cables again.

    8. A knife mat that'll keep your cooking tools safe, sharp, and organized. Reviewers love that it's easy to wash, meaning it doesn't collect gunk like regular vertical knife blocks.

    9. An infusing spoon that you can use to pack your soups and sauces with flavour. Just fill its mouth with herbs and spices and let it soak in your pot. The opposite end is an herb stripper, so you can use it to prep your rosemary and thyme.

    10. A cable cover that'll keep your cords in order, so that they don't end up in a tangled mess under your desk. It has adhesive backing that keeps it from sliding around, no matter what type of flooring you have.

    11. A makeup brush drying rack that you can use to air out your beauty tools and keep your vanity free of clutter. Reviewers love that it saves them from flipping their brushes a hundred times to get every bristle dry.

    12. A set of reusable toaster bags that will help you make a grilled cheese sandwich, without dirtying any pans. You can also use them to heat up leftover pizza, chicken nuggets, and pretty much anything else.

    13. A pack of anti-slip glasses pads that stick right onto the bridge of your specs to make them more comfortable. They'll eliminate pinching and keep your glasses from sliding down your nose, even when you're sweaty.

    14. A car visor organizer that you can use to store all your miscellaneous treasures, from your spare change to your tissues. It has five zippered pockets of varying sizes that won't let your stuff slip out, even when you make a sharp turn.

    15. A microwave cover that'll keep your appliance splatter-free, even when you're zapping messy foods. It's collapsible, so it'll take up like, zero space, in a drawer or cupboard.

    16. A bottle of shoe stretching spray with over 2,000 positive reviews that'll soften and stretch your tight-fitting footwear. Using it is simple: spray those tight areas down, toss on your thickest socks, and pop on your shoes or boots — after it dries your shoes should fit better than ever.

    17. A set of ruled sticky notes so you can attach additional notes on top of your notes. These are great if you want to flag something in a textbook, but don't want to write on the actual page (keep that resale value high; you've got student loans to pay).

    18. A pair of moisturizing gel socks that are packed with jojoba oil and vitamin C to help moisturize your dry, cracked tootsies. Reviewers say they take some getting used to, but work actual magic on calloused soles.

    19. A folding cutting board that'll help you get your ingredients from your prep area to your pot without dropping any morsels (sorry to my dog). It has non-slip feet that keep it from sliding around while your slicing and dicing, too.

    20. 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 only need to use one or two.

    21. A set of plant-based scrub sponges made from cacti (yep, actual cacti). They only cost a little more than the sponges you'd buy at the grocery store, but they'll last a lot longer.

    22. A roll of waterproof marble contact paper that'll make anything you apply it to look more expensive than it actually is. You can use it on your countertop, laptop, furniture and pretty much anything else.

    23. A bottle of room-freshening spray that’ll banish pet odours and make your home smell like a million bucks (instead of a zoo). It's made with natural oils and is allergen free, so it won't make you sneeze up a storm, even if you have a sensitive schnoz.

    24. A pack of silicone straw tips that'll keep your sensitive chompers safe from clanging against your metal and glass straws. Reviewers say they make sipping more comfortable and that they're great for kids who like biting their straws.

    25. A magnetic glasses holder that'll keep your specs where you can see 'em and won't poke holes in your clothes. They work on backpacks and purses, too!

    26. A pair of bug-repellant socks that'll keep mosquitos (and other pests) from dining on your ankles. They're totally odourless, so you won't smell like a mess of chemicals when you're wearing them.

    27. A stove cleaning kit that'll make your cooktop look good as new in just a few minutes. Just apply the cream to your burners, wait a few minutes for it to sink in, and then scrub away the gunk with the spongey cleaning tool. For super stubborn messes, you can scrape off build up with the razor.

    28. A magical gel toilet stamp that cleans away stains and rings with every flush. It's also scented, so your bathroom will always smell fresh, no matter what goes on in there.

    29. An adjustable teaspoon, so that you can tackle a recipe without using a thousand different tools. It'll also free up space in your drawers, so you can fill them with even more gadgets.

    30. A stain stick that every messy person needs in their life. Using it is simple: just apply it to any stain, run it under water, and let it do its thing. Reviewers say it works on everything, from coffee to tomato sauce.

    31. And finally, a pack of Listerine chewable breath-freshening tablets that are a true blessing if you forget to brush your teeth before running out the door (don't lie, it's happened to all of us).
