1.A vibrating facial cleanser with ~15 speeds~ to upgrade your skincare routine *and* increase the effectiveness of your usual face wash with one simple tool. Why spend upwards of $150 on higher-end brands when this (much) cheaper bb will do the same 👏 darn 👏 thing 👏 when it comes to brightening your complexion?
2.A portable personal blender that'll not only *look* super fancy thanks to its stylish design, but also let you make delicious smoothies on-the-go. All you have to do is fill it before running out the door. AND it saves you money when you don't buy $7 smoothies every day?! We are living in the year 3000.
3.A pair of low-heeled pumps so you can ~elevate~ your outfits with (wait for it) comfy heels. Reviewers swear they can walk allll day in these without so much as a peep from their piggies — aka if you don't want to invest in similar styles like Everlane's famous "day heel", these'll work (and look!) just as well.
4.A pair of wireless earbuds for wishing cumbersome headphones adieu in favor of a high-quality, hands-free listening experience — without watching your savings plummet at the Apple store.
5.A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings to give all your favorite tops an expensive-looking edge. They're warm enough for fall *and* winter — meaning your ensembles will look effortlessly splurge-worthy for months to come, without having to pay the price.
6.A Dutch oven for finally beginning the sophisticated kitchen of your dreams. You can keep it on your countertops as some ~humblebrag decor~ and upgrade your cooking with Ina-approved meals. Considering it's less than most grocery bills, while other Dutch ovens hit the triple digits...this is the most approachable "investment" you'll see all day.
7.A windproof umbrella with a whopping 37 inches of coverage, as well as wind- and waterproof material that'll keep you just as dry as higher-priced alternatives could manage. It's actually reinforced with fiberglass ribs to withstand powerful gusts of wind and dries quickly, so you never leave puddles in your midst.
8.A one-step hair dryer and styling brush, because your wrist is TIRED and wants you to straighten your hair in a more timely manner. Enter this bb with three temperature settings, two speeds, and ionic bristles to evenly distribute its straightening power — now your tresses will be dry AND blowout-worthy without any hair-raising bills.
9.A Roku stick that'll streamline all of your favorite programs to one TV — aka exactly what you'll need to properly binge. We're talking Netflix, HBO, cable alternatives, and sports and news shows, like CBS and ABC. No more overpaying for cable just to get a limited selection of shows — this'll make sure everything is available for SO much less.
10.A sophisticated slipcover so you can transform old, worn-out furniture into your new favorite statement piece by simply covering it with this. You just saved yourself HUNDREDS of dollars by not buying a new couch, my friend. Guess who can't tell the difference: everyone.
11.An electric toothbrush for inexpensively reaching the pinnacle of oral care. It works to drastically improve gum health and remove plaque and staining (which in turn will naturally whiten your teeth) — all by offering five brushing modes with ~40,000 micro-brushes~ per minute. All this for far less than leading toothbrush brands? Truly a reason to smile.
12.A leak-proof stainless steel travel mug, because this'll keep your drinks hot for up to five hours and cold up to 12 hours — AND spilling your coffee will be virtually impossible to spill, thanks to this airtight, spill-proof lid. Even most $$$ thermoses can't follow through on these claims.
13.A hooded travel pillow that'll prove you don't need to choose between privacy and neck support, like so many higher-end brands make you do. This'll help you comfortably dose off even in the middle seat when flying, block out pesky light, *and* make you feel hidden from the gaze of your seatmate.
14.A bamboo chopping board with two sides: one to function as a serving tray with convenient dividers, and the other as a cutting board with built-in juice grooves. It turns out being the fanciest host you know actually costs less than $20. Ina, explain yourself.
15.A Revlon cream eyeshadow so you can deliver a bold, pigmented shade to your lids with a cream formula that's so darn rich it'll only take a dab of your finger — something we previously thought only happened after visiting the aisles of Sephora. NO LONGER.
16.A cold brew maker for breaking your habit of blowing $4 every morning on iced coffee, and instead making your own delicious blends. Reviewers say this actually makes coffee that tastes BETTER than our favorite stores. How ~rich~.
17.A tin of Cerépil blue wax beads because not only is this the brand that most higher-end salons use, but it's easy as all heck to use at home for literally half the cost. People swear it's practically painless, leaves zero bumps or redness, and gives them the same results as a professional session. Feel free to tip yourself.
18.A marble-patterned aroma diffuser that'll turn your home into a spa-like oasis and double as sophisticated decor. Plus, you'll probably use it forever — prepare to feel pampered all 360 days a year while this releases soothing aromas.
19.A pair of stylish blue light glasses so you can finally read emails without a headache (at least from the blue light). They minimize ~digital eye strain~ to drastically decrease the glaring from your screen, add a trendy update your outfit, and look surprisingly sophisticated. Chic technology? For $14? Who knew?
20.An attachable aerator to transform cheap wine into a high-quality glass of vino. It infuses oxygen to release your wine's ~aromas~ and bolden the taste right out of the bottle. Basically, for less than most bottles, you are now a sommelier.
21.A set of pearl hair clips for hopping on one of this season's biggest, and usually pricy, trends without splurging on designer accessories (Dior...one day). People won't be able to tell the difference, I PROMISE.
22.A memory foam seat cushion, because this'll greatly improve your desk environment sans the cost of your entire paycheck. It'll help your posture, maximize comfort (hello, molding and padding), and perhaps even make you happy to be at your desk. AND it responds to the heat of your body.
23.A John Frieda color-enhancing glaze to deepen your tresses to salon-worthy, brunette locks *without* an expensive trip to the salon. You can do it at home, spend less than even your usual tip, AND it adds a touch of shine to your hair. Will anyone know this all happened in your bathroom? Not a chance.
24.A faux fur throw blanket that'll be a major step forward toward redecorating the house like you always talk about. Step one: toss on couch. That's it. Your living room is now worthy of a visit from Bobby Berk.
25.A set of peel-and-stick tiles so you can have a (drumroll, please) new backsplash in your kitchen. Did you remodel your kitchen or just spend a fraction of what everyone thinks? I'll never tell.
26.A soft, cooling mattress topper for feeling like you're on cloud nine the minute you hit the bed — especially when you look back on its ☁️ dreamy prices ☁️. Basically for the price of your week's lunches, you just majorly upgraded your creaky mattress into your own personal oasis. AND it's 100% cotton, so hot sleepers can stay cool.
27.A Vivienne Sabó mascara, because this has converted many a brand snob into a believer in lower-priced mascaras. It's a one-stop journey to thick, fanned lashes in just a bat of your eye — aka all the results you expect from high-end labels, just without the scary spending.
28.A faux shearling coat that'll look just like all the similar fuzzy jackets I almost guarantee you've seen in just about every expensive store you've been to recently. Now you won't have to spend all your hard-earned cash on a trend — though you will be able to wear it all. the. time (and it *will* keep you warm!).
29.A bottle of Radha rosehip oil so you can ditch your complicated skincare routine that is REALLY adding up, and stick to this one-and-done serum that delivers all the results of designer skincare: it tackles redness, scarring, pimples, and everything in-between. Reviewers say they've ditched $$$ labels and now have ✨glowing✨, healing skin!
30.A pair of high-waisted leggings, because people s-w-e-a-r these look and work just as well (if not better!) than pricier brands like Lululemon. They'll keep you cool during high-intensity workouts (hello, moisture-wicking fabric), give you somewhere to keep your phone while playing music, and save you money so you can keep dropping $$$ on reserving spin classes.
You asking yourself if you'll make more "adult" purchases now that you're saving so much money:
