    38 Perfect Products If Your Aesthetic Is Bougie On A Budget

    Welcome to the club of *finer* (but inexpensive) things.

    1. A mulberry silk sleep mask if you've been scrolling around for a comfy-chic sleep aid — this has "do not disturb and take my money" written all over it. The pillowy-soft covering blocks out light, is adjustable, and will sit on your peepers comfortably, so you can drift off to dreamtown knowing you spent little to no money on it.

    2. A frosted reusable water bottle so beautiful — I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with something that keeps tabs on my hydration levels. I mean, would you just look at that gold cap? And not to mention the simple but totally effective timestamp design! Honestly, we adore a product that makes us feel thrifty and less thirsty.

    3. Stackable geometric catchall trays that are so cute, inexpensive, and functional, reviewers use them for everything from serving food, displaying jewelry, and even crafting.

    4. A knotted headband because, for you, dressing up for work meetings now consists of pairing sweats with perfectly done hair and a cute accessory to keep strands in one place. This meets that criteria and won't break the bank, ergo — I think you need one in every color.

    5. Cutout pointed ankle booties for when you feel prepared to retire your snow shoes — because this seriously gorge spring-ready style that only look "influencer" expensive, will be waiting. And, what's that sound? Oh, it's just your high-waisted cropped jeans calling out for their new soulmates.

    6. Cute and customizable spice labels if minimalist packaging in Sans Serif fonts has you heart-eyed. This is an affordable and aesthetically pleasing way to clean up that overrun spice drawer *and* with these on display, you'll finally be able to distinguish the parsley from the oregano.

    34. A coordinated two-piece set, because loungewear that matches and looks more polished (hello, cable knit!) is the perfect formula for a warm and fancy at-home look. And it's up to you if you wanna dress it up in heels or slippers, because *clearly* you can't go wrong either way.

    35. A faux croc cross-body that has designer drip all over it and features a single handle with a removable strap. We love a unique style choice that won't make a dent in our cheat week allowance.

    38. A set of nail adhesives for anyone who would a) rather opt for a DIY mani, and b) doesn't have the patience to wait for lacquer to dry or the ability to keep their nails scuff-free after painting them.
