    25 Things Under $25 You'll Never Stop Using

    Useful and affordable. Need I say more?

    1. A little dipper tool that'll transform your Mason jar into a mess-free honey pot. It’ll fit right into the ring of your lid, so it won’t take up any space in your utensil drawer when you’re not using it.

    2. A bamboo bath mat that'll make your bathroom look more like a spa. It has rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from sliding on the floor and the slatted design allows water to drip through, so it dries faster.

    3. A cut-resistant glove that'll protect your digits while you're slicing and dicing in the kitchen. It has little silicone dots on the palms to give you a better grip, and the fingertips have a thick rubbery coating for extra protection.

    4. A little brush that you'll love if your favourite part of every hair appointment is the complimentary head massage. It has a thick handle that'll give you better control, so you can easily work the shampoo, conditioner, or oil into your hair while you soak in the tub.

    5. A pair of bowl covers that'll lock in moisture, so your leftovers won't dry out. They'll replace your single-use plastic wrap, and they come in two sizes for small and large bowls.

    6. A tiny slotted spoon that'll help you get olives out the jar, without picking up any of the juice. It also comes with a stainless steel fork attachment that's designed for pickles, so you won't have to fish them out with your fingers.

    7. A scrubbing brush that'll help you banish the gross grime that builds up around your shower tiles, and bathroom and kitchen sinks. It has a thick handle and stiff bristles to make scrubbing much easier. And when you're finished you can hang it on a hook to dry.

    8. A small metal stand that'll keep your cookbook or tablet upright and make it easier for you to follow your recipe while cooking. It's legs are adjustable and it folds down for easy storage, so it won't take up too much kitchen real estate.

    9. A pair of shoe mats that'll give you a place to store your dirty shoes, so you won't bring water, snow, or mud into your house. They have textured surfaces that'll create better airflow, so your footwear dries faster. Each mat fits a single pair of shoes, but reviewers say they're perfect for small entryways and lockers.

    10. A flower-shaped sponge that'll gently, but effectively clean your dishes. It's easy to keep clean because it won't hold onto residue like traditional sponges. It has a suction cup on the back and a loop at the top, so you can stick to the wall or hang it up.

    11. A pair of microfibre gloves that'll make cleaning all those hard-to-reach spots a lot easier. They'll give you more control than a brush and they're soft enough that you can use them on any surface. They're reusable, so once you're done cleaning, you can throw them in the wash.

    12. A heat protecting hair primer that'll save your locks from breakage when you're using hot styling tools. It'll also prevent damage from harmful UV rays, if you spend a lot of time in the sun. Use it when your hair is wet to help soften and detangle it, as well as reduce frizz.

    13. A little dip clip, so you can dunk your chicken nuggets in your sweet and sour sauce without making a mess. It has a flexible silicone clip that'll attach to any vent, and grooves along the inner edge that'll fit packets of different shapes and sizes.

    14. A plate cover that'll keep your food from splattering all over your microwave's walls. It has little holes on the top to let out steam, and it folds down to one inch when you're not using it.

    15. An over-the-door hook that’ll give you space to store all your wet towels. And it has a set of small hooks to hang your bathrobe or clothes, so you won't have to leave them on your counter or toilet lid.

    16. A pair of silicone cleaning swabs that you'll never have to throw away. You can use them to clean your ears or apply and remove makeup, and when you're finished, just use soap and water to clean them. They also come with a small storage box, so you can take them with you anywhere.

    17. A squeegee broom that'll be an absolute life saver for anyone with shedding pets. You can use the flat side to clean the windows on your car and houses, and then use the brush side to catch all the stray hairs that get embedded in your carpets. The rubber bristles will collect them into a tidy fur ball that you can easily throw away.

    18. A shower caddy with stretchy baskets that'll fit all your bathroom essentials. It's made of rust-proof silicone and has two rubber hooks to hang it on your shower head or curtain rod.

    19. An electronic brush cleaner that'll motivate you to wash your makeup brushes before you put them away. The spinning wand will clean AND dry your brushes, and it comes with eight attachments that'll fit a variety of different makeup brushes.

    20. A sink squeegee that'll keep your bathroom looking squeaky clean. The flat side can be used to remove condensation from your mirror or scrape messes off your counter and the brush side is great for scrubbing away stubborn stains.

    21. A faux leather pouch that'll give you a place to put your lip balm. It comes with a key chain you can attach to your bag, so you won't have to dig around to find it.

    22. A pack of Command cord organizers that'll keep your cables in order and out of the way. You won't even notice them because they're small and transparent. Plus, their adhesive backings will stick to almost any surface and won't damage your walls when you're ready to remove them.

    23. A pair of super-tiny beauty spatulas that'll help you get every last drop of your beauty products out of their bottles. The flexible silicone head and long, narrow handle can fit into your favourite makeup and skincare bottles. And when the containers are cleaned out, they're in the perfect condition to be recycled!

    24. A thick fitness towel that's infused with Binchotan, which is a type of wood charcoal that absorbs body odour and purifies your skin. It's made with a blend of cotton and rayon, making soft, absorbent, and quick to dry.

    25. And finally, a sink strainer that'll catch all the bits of foods before they head down your drain. It's made of stainless steel, so it'll probably match your kitchen sink perfectly. It also has a little basket with perforated holes at the bottom to collect food and keep water flowing.
