1. We are all guilty of wanting to post a photo of our hand wrapped around a Yeti tumbler, but this tumbler from Ozark will do just fine.

"Instead of Yeti I love the Ozark trail brand sold at Walmart. It’s only $9.74 and keeps drinks cold for hours and hours. They come in several colors and sizes. But bigger of course is better."—tabithad4b08ccc14

2. Small leather backpacks are the IT factor right now. If you're willing to opt for pleather instead, then consider this backpack from Forever 21 for $565.10 less than the Rag & Bone version.

5. No matter how close you zoom, you cannot spot a difference between this Pandawell Apple Watch Band and this Milanese Loop.

"This Apple Watch band may not be made in Milan like the Milanese Loop by Apple, but it has the same design and the magnet is actually really strong. Plus, it’s $15.99 not $149!"—sofinabasset
