    36 Inexpensive Things That’ll Help You Save Money If You’re Totally Broke

    We're talking products with the potential to save you tons of $$$$$.

    by ,

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 stainless-steel coffee filter so you can finally say goodbye to paper filters, which just create unnecessary waste and strain on your wallet. Plus, this filter is actually designed to make your coffee taste BETTER — if you can even imagine such a glorious thing.

    This filter will fit most carafes (like this one for $19.99!) or coffee pots. It features a high-quality mesh inside and a laser-cut filter on the outside, which helps to bring out the best flavors in your coffee.

    Promising review: "This is my third reusable filter. I have two others from other brands but this one is the best — it's amazing at providing the right drainage rate for the best cup of coffee. I had a suspicion my original one drained too slowly (bitter coffee, even with course grind). This one is beautiful and does, as they say, drain at the best rate! You're going to taste all of the coffee flavors with this!" —Sarah B.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three colors).

    2. A set of Rubbermaid food-saver containers to keep all your produce fresh and ripe for a few extra days. Time and money savings aside, maybe these'll actually motivate you to make something yummy with the veggies you buy, rather than ignoring their existence in the back of your fridge and ordering takeout instead... It's actually sad how guilty I am of this.

    Promising review: "The quality of fresh produce begins to degrade after two or three days but I'm not willing to shop more than once a week. These Rubbermaid containers really solved that problem.. I was skeptical. I purchased fresh leaf lettuce and raspberries, rinsed them thoroughly, spun the lettuce dry and placed the items in the food saver containers. Eight days later the lettuce is still fresh. The berries remained fresh for five days until they were all eaten. Over the years, I would hate to calculate how much money I've wasted throwing away wilted or spoiled lettuce and rotted berries. The savings from discarded produce will pay for these containers quickly." —M. Hughes

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.35 (available in eight sizes).

    3. A TubShroom drain protector and hair catcher because plumbers can be costly, and constantly using store-bought drain cleaners takes a toll on your wallet AND the environment. It's like ~pouring money down the drain~.

    amazon.com

    All you have to do is pop this in your drain! It's made of silicone so you can easily wipe away all the gross hair and soap it catches (and who knows what else). And if you *do* need to unclog your drains, a little Drano ($14.26 on Amazon) never hurts. You can also get a SinkShroom for your kitchen and bathroom sinks!

    Promising review: "I have saved SOOOOOO much money on drain cleaner because of this. My husband has THICK curly hair and other hair trappers were failing to catch half of it. So I was spending $10-$20 a month on drain cleaner. Now, we're keeping the drain clear of hair." —Cecillia J

    Get one from Amazon for $12.99.

    4. A pack of Shout dye-trapping sheets so you can wash your colored *and* white laundry in the same load. Fewer washes = lower utility bills. And, let's be real, who actually wants to sit around and sort their clothes?? Not me. Big no. These are a win.

    reviewer photo showing a dyed quilt next to the Shout color catchers
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are an absolute necessity in my house! I have two little girls and I never have enough of their dirty clothes to do loads separated by color. I Just throw everything in together (yes, even reds and white) and nothing ever bleeds onto the other. My husband does his own laundry too (he isn't the best at separating), and this saved him when a red sock accidentally made its way into the whites. If you do laundry, you need these!" —Shannon Schneider

    5. A cold brew maker because your coffee habit shouldn't break the bank! Plus, staying home and channeling your inner barista is *way* more fun than picking up the same boring mobile order day after day, imo.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I don't know how I ever functioned without this. It's my first cold coffee brewer. I'm usually a daily drive-thru cold coffee drinker. I haven't purchased a coffee for two weeks since having this! I found it super easy to brew. I haven't had a single coffee ground get through the filter, and I used fine ground coffee that I found on clearance just to try it. I usually just add milk and a flavored liquid creamer. I also made a simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, and added in good vanilla extract when I removed it from the heat) and use that with a little milk sometimes. I haven't made a single glass of iced coffee that I couldn't drink. So simple! Don't hesitate to try it!" —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.05 (available in three sizes).

    6. And! A pack of Neuro energy gum that'll help you refuel without making another coffee run. The gum is packed with green tea caffeine, vitamin B6 (for your mood), and vitamin B12 (for your energy) — all of which combine to help you feel energized and prevent your afternoon crashes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a medical student, I have found this to be an amazing addition to my daily study regimen. It gives me the same amazing boost as the Diet Coke and coffee I used to chug, but without the jitters, crash/headache, or teeth-staining. It's become my new go-to for staying awake and alert in the OR or on the wards. I highly recommend for anyone who needs a pick-me-up, but doesn't want that 'wired' sensation you get from coffee." —R. Sardesai

    7. The Spatty, so you can get every last drop out of your cosmetic and personal care items before breaking down and forking over a small fortune to replace them.

    Reviewer photo showing before-and-after of how the Spatty can help you get every drop of make-up out of the bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I kept debating about buying this. I'm trying to stick to a tight student budget and wasn't sure if spending money on a little tool like this would end up saving me money in the long run. I ended up getting about a month's worth of foundation out of a bottle that I would otherwise have considered to be empty — and that's just one bottle so far! For me, totally worth it." —Reviewtoo

    Get it from Amazon for $4.94.

    8. Or a FlipIt! Bottle Emptying Kit for those products that are just a little too big for The Spatty (think shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, condiments).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I hate wasting lotions, etc. in pump bottles and this is the perfect solution and saves money over and over again. Easy to use and clean up. My last bottle of lotion had another two weeks' worth I got to use thanks to Flip-It!" —S

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    9. A jeans button replacement kit so you can squeeze every inch of life out of your favorite pair of broken-in Levi's. And if they get a rip or tear, these iron-on denim patches will come to the rescue.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have lost two buttons on two pairs of pants in the past week and these fixed the problem in literally two minutes. The fixed buttons are solid and this works as well as sewing on new buttons. I can never find my sewing materials, since I use them so rarely and these are much more convenient than sewing on a button." —W. Lang

    Get it on Amazon for $6.99.

    10. A charcoal toothpaste to brighten your smile without changing up your regular brushing routine. Whitening sessions can get expensive, and strips can be pesky to apply everyday — this makes whitening mindless AND cheap.

    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: "Great product...noticeable difference in my teeth as well as my son’s (kid safe/friendly). Love the “all natural” aspect of it and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to whiten their teeth naturally." —Beth DePrenda

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

    See what won best teeth whiteners on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    11. A set of reusable zipper storage bags you can rinse out and use over and over again. They come in snack, sandwich, and gallon sizes and can be used for everything from keeping produce fresh to a handy weekend toiletry bag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The leakproof performance is excellent as always. I use them to pack sandwiches and snacks for my kids and store produce in the fridge. I also find that the snack bag size is great for storing travel items. There are so many ways to use these bags, I'm glad that they have 12 in one set. I'm planning to buy a second set because these bags are DEFINITELY worth it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $16.99.

    12. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo to reduce brassiness and lighten your hair in less than three minutes! In other words, this helps you maintain your platinum blonde hair for as long as possible, delaying your next ~pricey~ trip to the salon so you have time to save up some extra pennies.

    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'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $10.65+ (available in six sizes).

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

    13. A habit-tracking calendar so you can get 👏 your 👏 spending 👏 under 👏 control. This'll help you track your short- and long-term goals and be better about tracking your personal finances. It might even help you do grown-up things, like pay *more* than the minimum payment on your credit card bill!

    the personal finance page of the habit-tracking calendar
    Amazon

    Each month has a theme to inspire you to make even more productivity goals, not just finances! Basically you just write something you'd like to achieve (be better about laundry) and mark each day that you accomplished it. Plus, it's year-less so you can jump in whenever.

    Promising review: "Tracking time is something people always talk about, but rarely do. Time is to much of an ambiguous concept that feels like a multi-head hydra. I don't know about other folks but I am visual. I need to see a physical representation. Habits are hard to start and harder to break. I like that this calendar can be customized and placed on your desk to 'gently' remind you about your goals. All in all, it's a great habit calendar that keeps you on track." —LEJ

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    14. A pack of cable savers to protect your chargers, aux cords, headphones, and all your other precious cords from fraying and becoming damaged. We thought the electronics themselves were expensive, but the real racket is how costly the charging cords are.

    Product photo showing Jetec cable savers used on both a phone and laptop chargers
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve just had to replace a charging cable for my iPad. The wires broke within the insulation, within an inch of the connector/plug end. Then I found out about these spiral coil flexible silicone wire protectors. They keep the wire cable from being stressed from bending. I bought a bunch of these and have put them on both ends of every charging cable for every device, iPad, cellphone, etc that I own. I would recommend that you do so too!!!" —Richard Virchow

    Get an 8-pack from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. A stainless-steel wine stopper so you can keep your half-finished bottle tasting fresh and delicious for up to 10 days after you pop the cork.

    Reviewer photo showing the wine stopper in use on a bottle of red wine
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product was just what I was looking for! I love my wine and needed to find a wine stopper that keeps my wine tasting just as good as the day I opened the bottle and this one does just that. This stainless-steel wine stopper is made of high quality materials and easy to use. It came with good packaging and super quick. I would recommend this product!" —Gnoecker

    Get one from Amazon for $7.98.

    16. Or a bottle of red wine stain remover if you tend to spill more than you sip. So please, stop panicking — this spray *actually works* and will prevent you from having to pay thousands of dollars to replace your carpet. Everybody makes mistakes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spilled red wine on my new white shirt and after feeling sad and mopey, I decided to try this! It worked like a charm, the stain came out and it was a good price. Instead of trying to get your shirt dry cleaned try this first because it will save you time and money!" —Cora S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.23

    17. A roll of eco-friendly, reusable bamboo towels, because paper products are low-key expensive? Using the ceramic plates in your cupboards and your REAL silverware can also save you a lot of money in the long run.

    Amazon

    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 $8.99.

    18. A bottle of Acure brightening facial scrub to brighten your complexion in one easy step. You don't need a regimen with 1,000 steps and products to get you that ~glow~ you're chasing. This'll exfoliate away excess oil and treat breakouts while bringing out your clear complexion underneath.

    amazon.com

    Its vegan formula helps to stimulate new cell growth with a chlorella growth factor. And it's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "This stuff is a lifesaver. Recently my doctor put me on steroids to clear up my allergies. I immediately started breaking out like I was 15 again (it was one of the side effects). I didn't have a good exfoliator and this one had such good reviews that i decided to try it out. It really works! In eight days my skin was almost back to normal and it felt clean as can be! My dark acne spots were significantly lighter and all the little bumps I had were gone. Will be buying this from here on out." —janelle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.21 or Subscribe & Save for $8.75.

    19. A multi-purpose cleaning solution that'll help renew everything from rust to burnt pans to stained tubs to worn-down sinks and EVEN Sharpie stains!? No matter what it is, this magical substance will make it look brand-new — period.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand-new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.99.

    20. A key-hiding case so you never get locked out of your house ever again. Hiding a key under the doormat or in a plant is SO last century. 🙄🔑

    Amazon

    Fill it with an extra key and some emergency cash and push it into a spot in the ground. It'll look just like a sprinkler!

    Promising review: "I really like this item. I needed somewhere to find my key outside, because the kids always get locked out. This is very discreet, I don’t think anyone would imagine there is a key inside of it. As others have stated, there is a nice clip to hold the key. This will make it harder for the kids to lose the key. I liked it so much, my family asked to buy them one as well. For the price, this is a great buy." —Antonio Rospigliosi

    Get it from Amazon for $6.80.

    21. A pack of wool dryer balls that'll reduce your overall drying time, which = a lower utility bill. It'll also just make your clothes super soft and wrinkle-free!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I should have bought these a hundred years ago! My clothes dry faster and are nice and super soft, and it beats the wrinkles out of everything so if you grab your clothes the second the dryer stops everything look like you ironed it. You will save on power with these so they easily pay for themselves." —William A.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in three sizes).

    22. A mini knife sharpener so you don't have to buy a fancier, more expensive set just because you're experiencing some dullness in your blades. This will cheaply and quickly bring those knives you've had since college back to their sharpest, pointiest selves!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I decided to actually come back to this nearly two years later to review it because it kind of got lost to me to review it back then. However, since I've bought it, I've heard my husband talk about it on and off. Just yesterday with my daughter he was going over sharp knife safety, and he just said how much he still absolutely loves it. Of every gift I've ever given him, this is the only thing I've heard still get praise nearly two years later. Highly pleased with it still." —Gluten Free Momma

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in three colors).

    23. Bissell Stomp & Go Cleaning Pads that are equally effective at removing pet hair and stains from your carpet as they are a cathartic activity. Now you can stomp your feet in protest of cleaning your house, while actually being productive and cleaning your house... A true two-for-one deal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things saved me from replacing my entire upstairs carpet! We had already replaced one section before finding these and were worried we’d have to replace another section at a cost of $3k. Stomp and leave it for 24 hours and I was amazed to see my carpet was its original light cream color. I now stock a box of these and have told every one of my pet owning friends about them. I’ll never spend hours scrubbing the floor or carpet shampooing again!" —findingk8

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    24. An Ecotools makeup brush shampoo to extend the life of your brushes by cleansing out months (OK, years??) of buildup. It'll condition bristles back to their original glory in literally a matter of minutes.

    reviewer photo showing dirty brushes before and after using the cleansing shampoo, revealing brushes looking brand new
    amazon.com

    They're also all-natural and cruelty-free! Reviewers also mention it pairs perfectly with a silicone brush cleaning mat ($4.99 on Amazon).

    Promising review: "You know how you spend time and effort to find makeup that lasts? No matter how much you makeup you may wear, using long lasting makeup comes at a cost. You can't just rub some regular soap on your face to get that "all day mascara/eyeliner/foundation" off can you? It's the same with your brushes. This is coming from someone who really doesn't care to clean brushes. I only started using them about seven years ago. It was three or so years after that I started trying to clean them. Rarely. And I thought vigorous scrubbing with hand soap was all you needed. It wasn't so I thought dish soap was all you needed. It still wasn't. I thought natural discoloration was inevitable for the lazy. Long story short, it turns out I was wrong and life is easy. Elbow grease for years was fine... until I got this stuff on a whim. The same brushes that were slowly permanently discoloring and fraying up had looked near new after my initial clean." —Not Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    25. A pack of washing machine cleaning tablets because, uh, have you ever cleaned the inside of your washing machine? Did you know that doing so can actually prolong the life of your washing machine? As well as prevent your clothes from smelling and getting damaged? Take care of your washing machines, people — they're not cheap to replace!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm happy to say this tablet worked great! Our drum is crystal-clean without a strong odor and there was no residual powder or tablet left. I also tried the Affresh wipe after to clean in and outside the rim, the door, and the detergent tray. Our washer looks brand new. I initially hesitated to buy the wipes but after seeing how well it cleans vs. just using one of my own towels, I'm sold. Having a front load washer in conjunction with hard well water is like a combo of two evils. This did clean the machine much better than I had expected!" —MMak125

    Get them from Amazon for $13.

    26. A handheld garment steamer to care for your garments and keep them looking crispy for as long as possible. You'll even save money from having to get all your clothes pressed at the dry cleaners!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "What a fantastic little gadget! We are saving so much money from dry cleaning bills and it’s so easy to use. I hate ironing. Hate it with a passion. This little miracle worker makes things easier for me. It takes away the wrinkles so quickly. Wow!" —Tes

    Get one from Amazon for $34.97+ (available in three colors).

    27. A pack of cleaning wipes because, even though you try your best to avoid mud puddles and excess salt in the winter, your boots somehow ALWAYS end up looking like you walked through a swamp in them. 🥴

    amazon.com

    You can also use these on things like purses, winter jackets, and car seats!

    Promising review: "This worked perfectly on black suede booties. I splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. I couldn't find anything that removed the stain. I tried these wipes as a last-ditch effort. I can't believe it, they look brand-new!! Stains came right out with very little effort." —AAD

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $8.19.

    28. Reusable makeup remover pads that come with a mesh laundry bag so you can simply toss them in the washing machine, and voila! They're economical, eco-friendly, and suitable for all skin types = win, win, win.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "They feel amazing! Saves on money! Clean great since they come with a baggy to put them in so you don’t lose them in the wash! PLEASE consider these rather than the throwaway ones!!" —Kerrin

    Get a 16-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    29. A candle accessory set because so many people don't know how to properly care for their candles. Trimming the wick and keeping it in the center of the candle can add so much more burn time and will help you justify all those trendy, artisan candles you've been buying lately (which is probably the reason you're broke, and therefore why you're reading this post).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "For years I have just been using scissors to trim my wicks but the trimmed pieces would often fall onto my candle wax making them look awful. The trimmer keeps the trimmed portion contained so this doesn’t happen. I don’t really use the bell shaped snuffer often but the tool that you use to bend the wick over into the hot candle wax to snuff it out without all the smoke? Seriously, I’ve been missing out. Tools you didn’t know you needed but they make burning candles so much more enjoyable. Handy storage box, they look nice and seem to be good quality so far." —CeKaRi

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    30. A fabric shaver to remove all the pilling on the sweaters you've recently unburied from your closet so you don't have to buy new ones. It also works on sofas, too — and I don't know about you, but a new sofa is NOT in my budget.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best money I have spent in a long time! I was worried it wouldn’t be very nice, being so low priced, but it saved my couch! I put a picture of both my couch cushions, they both used to look like the one on top but now my couch looks brand new! I love this product, would 100% recommend." —B. Nielsen

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    31. A toilet bowl ring remover that'll have your toilet shining bright like a diamond, which means you won't have to waste money on those expensive cleaning sprays or a new toilet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we bought our previously owned condo, all three of the toilets had a permanent dark ring. I must have tried at least six different cleaning products that claimed to eliminate rings. None worked. I was actually considering buying new toilets as the ring was embarrassing to me. A friend recommended the pumice toilet bowl ring remover and I was prepared to be disappointed again. But it worked perfectly. The ring is gone on all three toilets and it only took a few minutes per toilet. I don't know when I have ever been so totally satisfied with a product. It just saved me a whole lot of money and I am no longer embarrassed by the appearance of my toilets." —lynn mcdonald

    Get one on Amazon for $11.20.

    32. A bottle of Old English Scratch Cover so you can actually use that piece of wood furniture you have hiding in a corner somewhere instead of letting it be an unsightly catchall.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I remodeled my kitchen with a new floor and wall paint. My cabinets were looking a little shabby but were in great condition except for looking 25 years old. I didn't want to spend the time and money for new cabinets. Old English Scratch Cover saved the day. The cabinets look new again and it took about an hour for me to do the entire kitchen." —Danny Boy

    Get it on Amazon for $4.82.

    33. A stackable bento box that'll encourage you to actually (gasp!) meal prep. Cooking your meals at home can save you soooooo much money, rather than ordering takeout every night. And these containers will allow you to make pretty, Instagramable meals for the week.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been through quite a few different styles of bento boxes. This one though, hands-down, is the best of the bunch. Each compartment has a vacuum-type seal holding the lids down, and doesn't to leak at all. After several months of use, the band seems to be holding up just fine. Cleanup is easy and so far the plastic has not been 'stained' by any foods kept inside." —Nathan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.94 (available in two colors).

    34. Zymox Pet Ear Cleaner to keep your pet's ears looking and feeling healthier than ever. Your pet will never know the satisfying feeling of jabbing a cotton swab into their ear canal, so buying this spray will do them a real solid. It can also help prevent nasty infections and complications down the road that'll undoubtedly result in a hefty bill from your veterinarian.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a golden who has ear issues, so much that a few years ago he had to have surgery on his ear because of a hematoma. And of course all the trips to the vet for treatment over the years for yeast and infections have added up. Tried diet changes and other products. This ear cleaner is the best of all. And I noticed after a month of using it every three to four days that his ears are staying much cleaner. I usually don't write recommendations, but this is a good product for chronic ear problems." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    35. A grout cleaning pen that'll restore your grout tile lines and instantly take your bathroom from drab to fab. After using this pen, that expensive tile you've been thinking about will be able to wait a few years.

    Promising review: "Best product! I wish I had thought to take before pictures! My house was built in the early 1960s and the bathroom grout was becoming discolored in spots. I had used every product on the market before buying this pen to see if I could brighten the grout with no luck. I could have just saved so much money if I had went with the pen in the first place! It worked throughout the shower with more product to go! Easy to clean up and lasts a while!" —Kelli

    36. And an avocado slicing tool you can use to split, pit, and slice just as well as your favorite brunch place — which means you can get that ~avo aesthetic~ without having to pay $16 for a piece of toast.

    Promising review: "High quality. The feature that sets this apart from cheaper tools is the pit remover. I actually cut my palm and needed stitches removing a pit with a knife. Then someone told me about tools like this. The slicer part also works fine for me and saves a lot of time over manual slicing. Cleanup is simple. Run water over it in the sink. Then, put it in the dinnerware basket in the dishwasher. Great gift idea!" —W.S.

    No tears left to cry but SO much money to be saved... 😭💵
