    36 Things Under $20 That'll Make A Big, Big Difference In 2019

    "BEGONE" — you to 2018 problems.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pack of water bottle–cleaning tablets that'll put an end to drinking from funky-looking water bottles. Let's try to love ourselves a little more this year, starting with having everything look clean and new.

    amazon.com

    They're biodegradable, chlorine free, all-natural, and environmentally safe!

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this was a gimmick or not. Turns out it works really well. I have four metal thermos-like containers that are used to keep tea warm every day. Over time, the tea stained the insides and was very difficult to remove. I added one of these tablets to the container, filled it with hot water, and let it sit for a few hours. When I came back to rinse it out, I was literally amazed at how clean it was. I think it looked cleaner than when it was new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

    2. A charcoal toothpaste to make your smile *extra bright* thanks to this easy-to-use (and vegan!) paste formula. It's a heck of a lot simpler than messy charcoal, and will leave you ready to make your "new year, new me" Insta grid all about your pearly whites.

    amazon.com

    It contains organic activated coconut charcoal, baking soda, tea tree oil, coconut oil, Xylitol, and spearmint oil to both remove stains and freshen your breath!

    Promising review: "This toothpaste is seriously amazing and exceeded my expectations. I have sensitive teeth and have tried using whitening strips, which all make my teeth and gums hurt. Not to mention, the strips are uncomfortable and taste awful. I'd pretty much lost hope, because even certain whitening toothpastes made my gums and teeth hurt and gave minimal results. I am not a smoker and I don't drink soda, however I do love drinking Earl grey tea and coffee which we all know tend to stain anything it comes in contact with, especially teeth. After one time of using this toothpaste, I saw instant whitening results. It tastes minty and clean, and because of the natural ingredients, it's gentle and did not cause any pain or extra sensitivity to my teeth or gums. After just three days, my teeth were so noticeably white that my coworkers were even commenting and asking what I use. This will always be my go-to from now on!" —Amelia

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two flavors).

    3. A wine stain removing spray so this year when you inevitably spill red wine all over your favorite blanket AGAIN, you'll be able to spritz away all your problems. Look who has a clean home now!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent and takes care of any stain (not just wine) so fast and so efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    Get it from Amazon for $5.62.

    4. A set of cable protectors, because this'll give your frayed phone charger a second life when you simply slip this on. No more "if I lay my phone down justtttt right it should charge." Leave those painful memories behind us.

    Amazon

    They're made of super flexible silicone so they can fit over any cord!

    Promising review: "This is really such a simple item, but for me it’s made a big difference. We constantly had charger cords breaking right where they attach to plug in to the phone. We have had to replace so many cords because of this. I waited for a few months before reviewing this product just so that I could see if it worked first. So far it’s been awesome. My charging cord still looks/works perfectly with no problems. Such a handy little item." —nik

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $8.97 (available in three color combinations).

    5. A water bottle with time markers that'll make it seem actually possible to drink the recommended one liter a day. Who knew we'd be so responsible the minute the clock hit midnight? Ok, we're drinking champagne first.

    Amazon

    It features a one-click push button to open easily, uniquely-shaped mouth opening for fast water flow, and a strap for outdoor travel that makes this spill-proof!

    Promising review: "I love this bottle! It's the perfect way to remind me to drink more water throughout the day. I can easily get dehydrated and this helps me a lot. It's also great for working out since it holds 32 oz. Also, it's perfectly made. So many bottles leak and have other problems. This one opens up so you can have a sip and closes down perfectly. I can't describe it but trust me, it's well designed!" —Long Quang

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    6. A roll of eco-friendly, reusable bamboo towels so you can finally nix overspending on regular paper towels and clean up messes a whole lot faster thanks to the absorbent material. Eco conscious AND saving money? Who knew we could grow so fast.

    amazon.com

    They're made from sustainable, organic bamboo — one roll replaces 60 paper towel rolls. Plus they're machine-washable and SUPER strong! They can be used ~120+ times~ before discarding.

    Promising review: "I frickin' love this. These are great for those times you need a paper towel but don't want to create all the waste to throw it out. They're definitely a lot thicker than a normal paper towel, but function just as well for being easy to crumple up or soak up liquid. I've found these especially helpful for tasks that used to waste a lot of paper towels because towels didn't work for it: like cleaning the litter box, cleaning the bathroom, placing in the microwave to catch spills, cleaning up pet messes, and so on. I've already run some of them through the wash probably five to seven times and they remain just as useful as before." —Caz

    Get a set of 20 from Amazon for $7.99.

    7. An app called Aaptiv to easily squeeze exercise into even busy schedules with certified trainers, specialized programs, classes, and playlists. Basically if the thought of working out stresses you the @$#*! out (despite any "resolutions") this will take you by the hand and make it totally manageable. Perhaps even fun.

    Aaptiv

    There's seriously every kind of class you can think of, like beginner's yoga, strength and conditioning, marathon training (lol), and "walk to run one mile" (for beginner runners)!

    Try a free 30-day trial for a 12-month membership of $8.33/month (billed annually).

    8. A spackle kit, because you'll need this if January brings you home improvement motivation — or you just need to get your security deposit back.

    amazon.com

    This kit contains spackle, primer, a putty knife, and sanding pad!

    Promising review: "I slipped in the shower the other day and grabbed my towel bar outside of it as to not die. Doing so, I ripped the bar off of the wall, including the screws and anchors, so I had four small but kind of nasty holes in my wall. I've never done any sort of drywall repair/spackling/etc, and I figure for under $10 with all I could need, this would do the job. I applied the spackle, smoothed it with the flat end of the tube, and allowed it to dry. I was able to sand it smooth and then paint over the spackle. It looks fine now. I give it a five for convenience." —John J. Connelly Jr.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    9. A TubShroom — aka literally the best (and most popular) thing since sliced bread — to make sure you never have to stand in water while showering again. And all it took was sticking this bb into your drain.

    amazon.com

    Just put it in your drain and pop it out to clean every so often. It's made of silicone so you can easily wipe away all that gross hair and who knows what else before you lose your cool. And check out a BuzzFeeder's full review for all the info!

    Promising review: "I was so afraid to wash my hair because the thickness would stop up the tub. This TubShroom changed my hair washing routine forever. Great product!" —cassandra edwards

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    10. A set of colorful stainless steel straws that'll both carry over 2018's mission to save the sea turtles and make your drinks extra cold as you drink 'em. Everyone's going to win.

    amazon.com

    They come in four different sizes (in both bent and straight) and with two thin scrubbing brushes!

    Promising review: "These are great! There are so many different sizes and shapes to use with different types of glasses. They do have that rainbow coloration which I love. I had friends over for drinks and they all raved about them. They also get nice and cool when you have a cold, icy drink!" —AR

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six color combinations).

    11. A set of shower curtain clips so you can stay toasty warm while showering, instead of dreading the cold air awaiting you. We DESERVE enjoying hot showers and by golly this year is going to bring it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Have a lot of trouble with leakage around my tub when I shower. Tried double liners, magnets, etc but curtain still blows enough to leak onto the floor and from there through the ceiling of the dining room downstairs around an infinitesimal gap between flooring and wall. I was desperate, so I gave these a try. Problem solved. Liner stays tight against the tile and can be freed for cleaning." —D. Polsky

    Get set of four on Amazon for $7.69 (available in two colors).

    12. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo, because this'll neutralize yellow tones left from pigment residue after bleaching or lightening, and brighten your hair to platinum blonde — all in just one to three minutes. New year, new hair.

    amazon.com

    Just don't use it for more than three minutes (once a week), because then your hair will turn lavender (unless you're into that, which some reviewers are!!!).

    Promising review: "I have platinum blonde hair and harsh water. My hair easily gets discolored no matter how little I wash it. I have used a number of high-end purple shampoos and thought they were all great quality. Until now. I didn't realize what I was missing in my life. I left this shampoo on for maybe three minutes and now my hair looks freshly-toned to an icy blonde. I'll never live my life again without this shampoo." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.83+ (available in six sizes).

    For more info, check out "If You Color Your Hair Blonde, You Need This Purple Shampoo".

    13. A Squatty Potty that'll....relieve you from backed-up bowels in a shockingly fast manner. Translation: YOU WILL POOP LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

    Amazon

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review for some very honest evidence.

    Promising review: "I've bought one of these for myself, my parents, and my friends. I'm not kidding. You may think I'm just some made up spam account, but I honestly have bought multiple squatty potties. Not to get too graphic, but when I'm doing my business I'll think almost nothing came out based on the amount of pushing I did. I'll turn around and the bowl is full. I've never seen so much come out of me so easily before. As long as you are also getting an appropriate amount of fiber in your diet, this will work better than sitting on the toilet normally. I almost don't want to use a toilet for #2 unless there's a squatty potty." —Ludlum

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A line-a-day journal for a therapeutic way to end (or start!) every day, and eventually learn to control all our darn stress. Forgetting about self-care is so 2018.

    Amazon

    You fill out one prompted question every day for five years!

    Promising review: "I love this journal, it gives me so much pleasure to remember small details and tiny events that I would otherwise forget over time. Every day it happily jogs my memory and I feel like overall, I remember many more events from my past. Now I have a yearly reminder that something good happened." —rkennedy

    Get it from Amazon for $10.17.

    For more info, check out "This One Line A Day Journal Is My Most Prized Possession".

    15. A cult-favorite bra already loved by hundreds of big-breasted reviewers so spending $$$ on overpriced, uncomfortable bras is totally a thing of the past. 2019 is going to support us.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow I never would have thought a bra under $20 could handle my big boobs. I’m somewhere between 38 and 40 DD and they’re pretty saggy, so I usually get a lined department store bra. It’s not uncommon to spend $50-$75 on a bra. But this bra is awesome. It fits very well; the underwire is actually flat against my chest all the way around the cup, and I feel supported, but not stuffed into it. I'm buying more colors right now!" —Jenna Chidester

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49 (available in sizes 34B-44H and eight colors).

    For more info, check out "Hundreds Of Big-Breasted People Swear They Wear This Bra Literally Every Day".

    16. A subscription to Care/Of vitamins to kick the year off with a personalized vitamin regimen that'll cover all bases from shinier hair to healthier skin. Extra vitamin D? Yes, please. Fish oil? ABSOLUTELY.

Basically you tell them your goals ("I want clearer skin, more energy, etc.") and they'll match your needs to a personalized combination of different nutrients.

    17. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes, because these'll conquer scary messes wherever they happened: even on your carpet. Meaning: this year we'll actually keep our homes clean, instead of avoiding eye contact with our roommates.

    Amazon

    These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, WHEREVER. And! They'll clean up grease, oil, tar, dirt, ink, lipstick, nail polish, food, and a whole lot more.

    Promising review: "These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven't been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!" —Suze

    Get a set of 90 from Amazon for $11.94.

    18. An essential oil diffuser that'll not only eliminate dry-air nosebleeds, but give your home a soothing touch. Leave your stress in 2018.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I got this little guy, because my office has no windows and it's a miserable dark hole. I was getting genuine nosebleeds from the overly-dry stale air. This diffuser has truly helped me feel less like I'm dying throughout the day. The air feels fresher and healthier It's the perfect size for a small office." —Lucy H.

    Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

    Check out the full recipe that a BuzzFeeder now swears by to help her sleep through the night!

    Promising review: "Taking this at night really helps. I mix it with a little warm water and down it. Normally I toss and turn for a while before finding sleep as my body feels active still. After taking this, I've noticed that my body's been more relaxed and I've been able to fall asleep more quickly with less fidgeting. There's something there!" —Martin Griffith

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    20. A monthly budget planner so saving money over time doesn't just seem like something our parents can do — we're finally about to seem like ~real adults~.

    Amazon

    Each month includes payment trackers with space to manage regular monthly bills, debts, savings, and expense sections.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this budget/bill book. I have a simple system, but manage complex finances for two households. The 'everyday budgeting' section is exactly what I need to keep track of monthly expenses for both houses. I will be buying more and giving them as gifts to two newlywed couples." —Reed

    21. A bottle of La Roche-Posay gel acne cleanser, because this formula of salicylic acid will STRONGLY encourage breakouts and excess oil to ~clear out~. In fact, they won't really have a choice. SO LONG. See you never again.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Plus it's gentle enough to use twice a day! It specifically works to target and control oil, and then treat blackheads and breakouts so your skin is left clear, clear, and clear.

    Promising review: "I was lucky enough to have clear skin in high school so I never understood how awful acne really is. When I was about 21-22 years old, I switched to a birth control implant, and that thing wreaked havoc on my entire life. I suddenly had horrible cystic acne. Not only did it make me self conscious and uncomfortable, but it was actually so painful — laying on my pillow hurt my face! To top it all off, my skin was also dry, and irritated. I tried every skin care line on the market for about two to three years, with no, or very little, results. Finally, I found La Roche-Posays skincare products. Within four days, the inflammation decreased, the redness was fading, and my skin felt less dry. By two weeks, my skin was practically clear! I have been using this product for about four to five years now, and I haven't had a single outbreak, EXCEPT for the time I wanted to try a different product to save money. Huge mistake, one I will not make again." —LadyHawke

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    22. A duo of blind spot mirrors that'll make 2019 known as "when we learned how to parallel park."

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The size is nice, at 2", adequate for the average passenger vehicle. I drive an SUV and while I have great visibility out my windows, I wanted the extra perk of having blind spot mirrors. I don't get very much use out of them while driving around, but they're great parking mirrors for backing into tight spots or reversing around obstacles." —m.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $6.97.

    23. A leak-proof stainless steel travel mug for totally avoiding big spills (this is your TIME, messy people). No more early morning crises before you've even had your caffeine.

    amazon.com

    This boasts a totally spill-proof lid (thanks to its vacuum insulation technology) AND keeps your drinks hot for up to five hours and cold up to 12 hours! Plus, it makes drinking with one hand (hello, driving) easy, courtesy of its big button opening mechanism.

    Promising review: "I've had this thermos for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. I put my hot beverage of choice inside the thermos by 5:40 a.m. (what am I doing up so early?) and at around noon it is still nice and warm (not piping hot, but definitely not cold or even tepid) so that's give or take six hours. I have repeated this exact ritual nearly every day and it will always be deliciously warm at noon time." —Diana G.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.24+ (available in two sizes and in 18 colors).

    24. A set of bento boxes so it's super easy to pack your lunch more and SAVE MONEY. 2019 could be when you travel more, all because you stopped buying food every day!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I carried it in my bag sideways for four hours and the dab of ranch stayed in its own compartment. I'm very pleased with this product." —T

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $13.87.

    25. A set of seamless, low-rise underwear, because going forward, we'll never have to think about panty lines again. Thongs? Don't know her.

    Amazon

    They have a soft cotton lining and elastic waistbands that'll move with you allllll day.

    Promising review: "I honestly love these. I was so skeptical about buying underwear on Amazon. I could not imagine buying underwear without feeling it first. However, these were a huge success. First of all, they fit extremely nicely. The bum area has great coverage so you don't end up accidentally wearing skimpier underwear than you planned. I absolutely love the feel. They are so soft and comfortable. These are described as seamless and this is very accurate. I appreciate a good pair of leggings and I can wear these underwear without any panty lines (from leggings to skirts, etc)." —Emily

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love. One of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    27. An all-natural headache and migraine relief balm with aromatherapy benefits so you can feel soothed in a much shorter time than usual — GOODBYE awful headaches. We're leaving you in 2018.

    Amazon

    Its organic ingredients (chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, extra-virgin olive oil, almond and castor oil, and beeswax) can help alleviate tension, headaches, migraines, and migraine-induced nausea.

    Promising review: "I am so happy. I had a migraine for 11 days then came across this Headache Ease Balm. It has decreased the pain to a mild-medium headache which is a MASSIVE DROP IN MY PAIN. If you have a headache that's won't go away buy this, it does help. Although I believe in herbal remedies my pain was so bad I didn't think it would help. I am so happy I decided to give it a try." —Journey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two sizes).

    28. A pair of reusable silicone ear plugs, because this'll be a surprisingly simple solution to finally sleeping through the night...despite your roommate's tendency to blare the TV at 4 a.m. Isn't life beautiful on eight hours of sleep?

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Plus, because these are reusable they'll save you money from buying the disposable kind! AND they're designed to be super comfortable in your ears and come with travel case and pouch.

    Promising review: "These are amazing — so comfortable and easy to insert. They completely seal off your ears. I got them for my son. He suffers from insomnia. He's overtired, and cranky. He complains if I try to have a phone conversation or watch TV quietly in another room with closed doors between us. Not today! I've been talking on the phone with him sleeping like a rock in the next room — no more complaints! Since it came with two pairs, I kept one for myself. I slept so soundly! Everyone is happy and well rested. I highly recommend them and I never want to be without them again." —Nikki A.

    29. A silk scrunchy to *cut* hair creases out of your life —all while keeping something trendy on hand.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these!! I always sleep with my hair up, and these scrunchies not only keep my hair from creasing, but the satin is better for my hair at night. I use a silk pillowcase at night for the same reason. They’re a great size. I absolutely love these and all Kitsch products!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 24 colors).

    30. A tub of Aztec healing clay for deep-cleansing your pores like there's no tomorrow and kissing even the toughest, cystic breakouts GOODBYE. Did I mention the 13,166 Amazon five-star reviewers who saw a drastic improvement in their acne? Usually after ONE. TIME?!?!

    amazon.com

    By the way this works best with apple cider vinegar! Want more proof? Read our full breakdown!

    Promising review: "Wow. Just wow. I had no expectations for this product since I've been dealing with cystic acne since I was a teenager (I'm 24 now), so I went into this purchase not expecting much. As many others have said, I previously tried absolutely everything on the market to cure my acne. I have very sensitive, reactive skin and have never seen any real improvement. After reading all the rave reviews about this product I figured I would give it a try, again, not expecting much. However, I have been blown away by the long-term results of using this mask. I mix it with apple cider vinegar and apply it several times a week when my skin is really bad, and it has never done anything negative to my skin – no irritation, no dryness, nothing. It always destroys every single pimple that emerges. It does bring underlying pimples to a head, and that can be a little disturbing at first, but it is so worth it for the end result. I was considering taking Accutane, a very strong and dangerous medicine to finally cure my acne for good, and this product has made me completely reconsider." —Heather E.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    31. A flat colander so you can catch food scraps and wash fruits and veggies at the same time — it'll be a heck of a lot easier now while you cook. So maybe now you'll....actually make your food instead of order it?

    Amazon

    Plus it's safe to put in boiling water, as well as dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This is a simple design that just makes so much sense. I have always had some kind of mat in the bottom of my sink to keep dishes from clanking around too much, but often times food strands would get looped around and stuck on it, making it a pain to clean up. This colander is soft enough to prevent that clanking of dishes, but also solid enough to easily lift up and spray off, allowing food particles to slide right off and into the drain catch (no garbage disposal here). It's also great for rinsing and peeling vegetables, creating a large surface area (your whole sink) for catching flying peels, which you can then slide right into the trash. It seems like a bowl-shaped colander would be just as simple, but this design makes a ton of sense for my work-style in the kitchen and does double-duty as a sink mat. A great multi-tasking piece that has eliminated multiple kitchen inconveniences." —loubee

    Get it from Amazon for $13+ (available in three colors).

    32. A pack of makeup removing cloths, because you'll be able to wipe even waterproof eyeliner and mascara away faster, aka go to bed with a clean face from now on — not to mention this'll save you $$$ on disposal makeup wipes.

    amazon.com

    Their plush microfiber gently lifts away dirt, oil, and makeup! Use it wet or with your fave liquid makeup remover.

    Promising review: "This product...I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands-down my favorite makeup remover. The best part is that they are reusable so you don't have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy." —Heather and Ryne Griffith

    Promising review: "The seller sent a wonderful plant. It was well-packaged. I've had it for about three months now and it has been thriving ever since I originally received it. Since I've had it, it's grown approximately a foot in each direction. I'd highly recommend this if plant if you are looking to add some easy-to-manage green." —J. Baron

    Get it from Amazon for $9 .

    34. A bottle of Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo for hitting the reset button for dull, damaged hair. Just a weekly rinse with this will remove dulling residues (hello, styling products) and bring your mane back to its previous shiny state.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this because of the low price but it is AMAZING! It smells heavenly, it clarifies my scalp thoroughly and definitely gets rid of buildup. I use it once every two weeks. You HAVE to follow up with a very moisturizing deep conditioner; let it sit for a while then comb through your hair. It's a new staple for me." —Nicky C.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.83.

    35. A Clorox ToiletWand so you can remove tough stains and eliminate germs in the fastest amount of time. Aka it'll do all the *heavy lifting* for you (and its long handle will keep you at a lovely arm's length from your potty). Clean bathrooms this year? Yes please.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session!" —Whitney

    Promising review: "It really is smudge-proof! Living in Texas in the 100+ degree weather, you definitely need something that’s not going to be running down your face a couple minutes after going outside. This is it!
