    40 Products Under $10 Our Readers Loved In 2019

    Gotta love a product that's less than $10.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A snout soother stick for providing some much-needed relief to your pupper's chapped/crusty nose.

    Amazon

    This snout soother is organic, vegan, and made with all-natural ingredients!

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    2. An eyeshadow palette that'll be truly ~out of this world.~ No really, it's galaxy-themed, and the colors are super pigemented and wonderful.

    BH Cosmetics

    Promising review: "My sister-in-law bought me this palette for my birthday and it is killer. I love every shade. It is so pigmented and you don't need to wet your brush to get the shimmer effect. It blends very easily. The theme and names are on point. I haven't used any other palette since getting this one. Plus, they didn't forget Pluto — I mean seriously." —Brittany J.

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $8.40.

    3. A bug bite suction tool to help get rid of itchy bites. Kinda rude that little buggies get to munch on our skin and blood, and we have to deal with itchiness after.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This works by suctioning up insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under the skin, which in-turn prevents your body from producing a reaction to said irritant.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.93.

    4. A punny card perfect for giving the special loved one who simply ~Dwightens~ up your life. Get it? Dwightens instead of brightens? Haha ok, sorry.

    Etsy

    Promising review: "Got this for my husband for our wedding anniversary!! He absolutely LOVED it! Quick delivery and looked fab! Thanks so much!!" —Alicia Corrigan

    Get it from CardinalCreativeCo on Etsy for $4.64.

    5. An internet address and password logbook to help keep track of your important login info for social media, online banking, school portals, and more. Sorry but yourname123 isn't a good password, no matter how easy it is to remember.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.33.

    6. Traceless hair ties that'll allow you to freely put your hair up as often as your heart desires without worry of pulling hairs when you take the tie out!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It sounds like hyperbole to say that these hair ties changed my life, but it's true. I sleep with my hair in a messy topknot using these elastics every night. In the morning, I just take my hair down, run a brush through it, and that's it. My hair is done, and more voluminous than ever before. I do have pretty low-maintenance hair in general (long, naturally straight) but I never thought it could be THIS EASY." —Rachel P.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four colors).

    7. A cable bite to serve as an adorable way of helping to prevent your charging cord from bending or breaking!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Such a cute little product. Got one for my charger and it’s stiff enough to help it not bend and break. My charger has already lasted me a year longer than my older ones with this. Also helps identify my charger so nobody takes it." —Shanroseb11

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $6/one, or $10/two.

    8. A jewelry cleaning pen so you don't have to spend time and energy changing out of your pajamas just to go pay someone else to shine your beloved treasures when their shininess starts looking anything less than blinding.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so excited to see the huge difference in how clean my jewelry looked. The cleaning process took less than five minutes and now it sparkles like new!" —Jackie_X

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    9. Cable clips so you can prevent all your wires from getting into twisted, knotted messes that make you wish you lived in pre-technological times... our ancestors in pre-historic times didn't have to deal with untangling their laptop chargers from their iPhone chargers from their Alexa device wires.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was looking for a creative solution of how to route and secure cables from two AC Power Adapters on a recording cart I use on film location. A magazine review led me to a competitor's cable organizers similar to Blue Key World's Cable Clips that were cheaper, but I decided to pass on them. Why? Poor consumer reviews. I kept looking and finally came across Blue Key World's Cable Clips. They cost more, but look carefully and you'll see they have the highest customer ratings. That speaks volumes to me. So I ordered three packs for my audio cart. These are an incredible product! You've got to give it up for a company like Blue Key World that continually strives to make their product better and whose goal is consumer satisfaction. In a world where far too many people confuse cost (cheaper is better) and value, I am here to tell you that these Cable Clips are an amazing value (superior quality is always better because they last longer and do the job right). I can't recommend them highly enough." —Hardcore Harley

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.97.

    10. A Mean Girls mini burn book and magnet set perfect for those who are always looking to channel their inner Regina, or Gretchen, or Karen, or Cady.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "My friend and I love to quote this movie all the time so it was only fitting that I buy this for her. She loves them! Perfect for her fridge." —DoloresHaze

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $9.95.

    11. A pumice cleaning stone that'll scratch away at those — TBH, pretty repulsive — toilet stains without leaving horrid scratch marks in the bowl.

    amazon.com

    It's over 40% denser than similar products so it has a longer life! The handle allows you to keep your hands clean while cleaning the toilet. It removes calcium, lime, and hard-water stains using gentle abrasive action, and cleans porcelain fixtures, hard-water stains, pool tile, toilet bowls, barbecues, steel, and stone.

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, and regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove them. I decided to try this pumice stone, and it worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease. But 10 minutes later, I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching." —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99/one, or $14.99/two.

    12. An expanding accordion folder for neatly organizing your important papers, notes, and documents in one easy place! Plus, they come in fun colors, and have a cute little smiley face printed on the front!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this folder to keep our family documents organized and in one place. There are just the right amount of tabs for our birth certificates, passports, social security cards, car titles, will, etc. This folder is small enough that you can lock it in a home safe or safety deposit box. I let a couple family members know where I keep this so that they can access it in case of an emergency. It is such a relief knowing that all these things are together and organized. I’m glad I bought this." —Katie Bee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 10 colors).

    13. Silicone earring backings so next time you realize your earring post fell out and got lost in your shag carpet AGAIN, there's no need to fret. Yes, I am talking from personal experience here. I love these earring backings and think anyone with pierced ears should buy them ASAP.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These little silicone backs are small, but they tightly hold the earring in place really well. And with 200 pieces in the box, if you drop one (you will), it really doesn’t matter. Now I can safely wear the earrings in my jewelry box that are missing one or both backs. This was an excellent and an inexpensive purchase for me. Highly recommend!" —Carol R. Slicher

    Get a pack of 200 pieces (100 pairs) from Amazon for $4.98.

    14. An adorable cat spoon that'll happily just chill and hang off your mug, so you always have a little buddy to hang with while enjoying your fave hot beverage.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $1.49.

    15. A pack of Hogwarts playing cards to make earning points for your house extra fun, no matter which games you choose to play with these.

    BoxLunch

    Get them from BoxLunch for $7.92.

    16. A collapsible colander that functions as a strainer, a lid, and a steamer all-in-one! We love a kitchen product with versatility, yes we do!

    Macy's

    This is heat-safe in temperatures up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Works great as a strainer, but also is great for removing a hot plate from the microwave as it’s big and has great handles. Can be used as a pot lid too, and folds small for easy storage." —Goldie99

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $7.93.

    17. An acupressure anti-nausea wristband that claims to ward off motion sickness and nausea, minus the drowsiness side effect found in most nausea medications.

    amazon.com

    These are designed to work by applying pressure to the P6 acupressure point on the wrist that claims to have been proven to relieve nausea and vomiting.

    Promising review: "I have bought this for the third time. Not only is it a great idea, I wear them 24 hours a day seven days a week. I suffer from extreme vertigo and having these on I have no vertigo whatsoever. They say not to wear them all the time, but I say if it works, do it!" —C51

    Get a pair from Amazon for $6.99.

    18. Anti-slip silicone glasses sleeves to keep your eyewear where it belongs, ya know, on your face, and NOT slipping and sliding down to the floor and risking getting broken AGAIN.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a little dubious about these, but my daughter's glasses were always falling off her face and to the floor, so if I could spend a couple of bucks to save her expensive glasses, it was worth a shot. In fact, because you get five pairs, I put a set on my glasses, and I'll be darned if they don't work really well. They add a little bit of bulk to your glasses so if you're extremely fashion-conscious, it's not like tape on the bridge nerdy, but it's there. But if you're more concerned about having your glasses feel like they're going to stay put on your head, then you'll like these. They aren't too thick so you don't really notice them on your ears. In fact, because of the soft silicone, they actually result in less of the occasional soreness I would get from my glasses on my ears sometimes." —Domenico Bettinelli

    Get a pack of 10 (five pairs) from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two colors).

    19. An anti-blister balm to apply before putting on your shoes, so you can prevent those painful annoyances from even trying to happen.

    Amazon

    This is made of allergen-free, plant-derived ingredients, and infused with vitamin A and C!

    Promising review: "I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like 'pssh what a waste of $8 ON AMAZON FOR THIS LITTLE THING.' Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub on my skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!" —Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    20. A calligraphy beginner's guide/workbook to help get those who have an interest in the art of beautiful lettering started off learning the basics.

    Amazon

    The book contains five different alphabet styles and both upper and lower case letters, detailed instructions, and 15 lettering projects!

    Promising review: "I LOVE this book!! I’ve wanted to improve my penmanship and learn modern calligraphy and lettering for a looooong time. I thought I’d give this book a try and I’m so confident in my lettering now. I’m excited to create my own projects and show off my new skills!!" —KHenderson

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. An adorable enamel pin for attaching to a denim jacket, a tote bag, or anything else you wear that you'd want to sport this little cutie around and show it off.

    Etsy

    Promising review: "I received my pin quickly. It is SO cute, I am very excited to give this to my nephew. I almost want to keep the pin for myself!" —samesame

    Get it from Love Michi BB on Etsy for $9.99 (available in two styles).

    22. A jewelry polish cleaner that's good for more than just jewelry! Use these wipes to restore the condition of other precious belongings like antiques, diamonds, gemstones, and metals without having to worry about leaving behind scratches.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are handy little things and perfect for cleaning jewelry. They are pre-moistened with cleaning solution, but are not overly strong so it doesn't damage intentionally oxidized pieces. These are small containers, about the size of an 8 oz measuring cup, very portable, and very easy to use." —JJBee

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $8.28.

    23. A house plant animal decoration to add some cuteness, as well as some humor, to your indoor greenery.

    Etsy

    Promising review: "Arrived promptly. I know the people who will receive this will love them. Fun and original. I will buy again!" —silvina de vita

    Get it from Another Studio on Etsy for $8.04 (available in 12 styles).

    24. Debrox earwax removal drops so you can give your ears the clean they not only want, but truly need — think of how much clearer listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack at your desk on repeat all day will sound now... not that I do that.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This cleaner uses micro-foam action to safely soften and remove earwax in a non-irritating manner.

    Promising review: "My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH... the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Get it from Amazon for $5.60.

    25. A 5-in-1 wine gadget that acts as an aerator, a stopper, a pourer, a filter, and a re-corker. I'll toast to that!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Throw out the others, this is the one. I have a drawer full of wine pour spouts of varying designs. Some don't fit all bottles, some leak while pouring, and some are so tall that storing upright in a refrigerator is difficult and none seal completely. This spout/stopper seals completely and lets you lay the bottle on its side. The aerator allows air to move back into the bottle while pouring to avoid the 'glug glug' effect of other pour spouts. The strainer may filter large cork pieces, but is not fine enough for sediment. The portion of the corker that fits inside the bottle has fit every bottle I've tried it in, from standard size bottles to the larger 1.5 liter bottles. It appears to be made from a flexible material that doesn't add any unwanted taste to the wine. " —Jack Dallas

    Get it from Amazon for $5.71.

    26. A universal cleaning gel perfect for getting rid of dust, hairs, crumbs, and more from things like technology items and your car. It's like playing with slime WHILE cleaning, so it's a win/win.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this product to clean those little spaces in my car filled with random crumbs from my husband and dog hair, and it works amazing. Picked up everything and didn’t leave a residue. The lemon scent was faint and didn’t overpower the vehicle while I was cleaning it. But this definitely got in all the little nooks and crannies." —Kimberly

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    27. A sloth planner and notepad that's super adorable, and unlike the nature of these slow-moving cute creatures, will help make it easier to stay on-track and get through your to-do list quicker.

    BuzzFeed / Emma McAnaw

    Promising review: "I got this notepad as a gift for my sloth-crazed friend. Usually anything sloth-themed is a hit with her, but this note sheet was an absolute win. She loved it. First of all, the sheets are cute as heck. There is a place to rate your sloth mood, every header is a pun, and the design is tasteful. Second, it is organized in a way that makes sense. It separates errands from short tasks and more. Third, the paper is quality. If you are on the fence, this product is perfect." —Allie Schultz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    28. A spooky movie coloring book for a fun nostalgia-inducing way to celebrate your favorite films, no matter what time of year it may be!

    Etsy

    Promising review: "This coloring book is even cuter in person! The details are awesome. I had so much fun coloring these pictures while watching classic Halloween movies and getting nostalgic over my childhood! Five stars for sure!" —Bri

    Get it from Wren & Wilson on Etsy for $8.11.

    29. Headrest car hooks to provide the perfect spot for hanging handbags, coats, grocery bags, and more! Because let's be real, they deserve a spot that's better than the floor.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the handiest contraption ever. You simply raise your headrest about 1/2" and clip this to the headrest's post. It's firm and secure. My handbag is often heavy and this didn't make the hooks tilt at all when it was on. I gave one to my daughter who uses it in her car, too. She loves it as her car doesn't have much floor space as her center console is wide and she often has passengers. Great value for something so useful!" —Just My Opinion

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.95 (available in two colors).

    30. A tongue scraper so you can not only help reduce the bad breath tied with having gunk on your tongue, but also to ensure your selfie game is yuck-free, and really, which is more important? (OK fine, it's the bad breath.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's hard to review this product without grossing people out but I think the truth needs to get out. There is some nasty stuff on your tongue that a toothbrush cannot remove, especially in the back. This thing allows you to remove it easily without gagging yourself by trying to shove a toothbrush down your throat. I was definitely surprised the first time I used it how much material I removed, and yes that stuff smells bad. After that first time I couldn't get anywhere near as much off of my tongue which tells me that the material had been there a while. My breath is noticeably better now. This is a very simple tool and it cleans up well since it's just a piece of stainless steel and rubber handles." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.19.

    31. Animal bag clips to make saying au revoir until tomorrow to the Doritos bag a heck of a lot cuter!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "When you are in the market for chip clips why not buy adorable ones? These were a very reasonable price and I was squealing with delight when I opened them (because they are so cute). They're sort of small, but for things like Milano cookies and plastic bags, they seem to work well." —Danielle

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.99.

    32. A suede and leather brush cleaner with four different sides for truly targeting even the toughest of scuffs and stains, no matter where they're located on your shoes and other belongings.

    amazon.com

    The Welt surface can be used for strong cleaning on heavy scuff marks and stains, the nylon bristles can be used for a more gentle clean on light scuff marks on thin, fine suede/nubuck, the arched half circle brush can be used for easy cleaning on rounded corners, and the thing protruding brush can be used for cleaning on hard to reach crevices and grooves. The cleaner works well with other sprays, foams, erasers, and cleaning kits!

    Promising review: "This brush saved my shoes! I posted before and after photos so you can see the difference. My shoes were light pink with big noticeable stains on the sides. I just brushed it on the same direction until the stains wore off." —Lissette Castillo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    33. An OPI matte top coat with a cult-following that'll give your manicures a smooth, beautiful, and long-lasting finish!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'll start off by saying all matte top coats are porous, so by their nature they won't wear as long as glossy polish. Having said that, the OPI matte top coat lasts just as long and re-applies much better than most other matte tops I've tried. Works great on top of gel manicures! If you're hooked on LED gels like me, this polish works great to matte down the ultra-wet appearance of LED-cured gel polishes. If you want the look of completely nude nails for any reason, (fashion, dress code, acting, etc.), but you don't want to sacrifice that protective shield of your super-strong gel manicures, try applying OPI Matte Top Coat over your clear OPI LED-cured manicure. No one will ever know your nails aren't nude, and they won't chip on every doorknob or keyboard." —M. Spalding

    Get it from Amazon for $5.25.

    34. Cat gel pens for the most purr-fect way to write down notes, letters, and even make shopping lists. They're so cute, you're gonna wonder how you ever wrote with regular pens leading up to this moment.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These pens are super cute and I was very impressed with how well the ink flows out of them. I took them to work and have gotten so many compliments on them. Everybody knows which pens are mine since I am the resident cat lady and lover of all cute things in the office. I always smile when I see their little faces looking out at me from their pen holder. It's like they're saying 'come play with us and write wonderful messages.' I couldn't be happier with these little guys." —Goldie

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.99.

    35. A screaming goat book and figure for a hilarious little companion at the office, at-home, or wherever else you may decide to house this!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was hilarious! Both the figurine and the book. Bought for a co-worker, we all laughed and laughed each time we made it scream! We even played it over the loudspeaker for our warehouse workers to hear, and hearing it over that loudspeaker had us cracking up the rest of the day! Wouldn't have thought it be so popular but everyone loves it, especially the guy who it's for!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $8.20.

    36. A grout pen that'll have your floors shining like the top of the Chrysler building in no time at all. Did you hire a fancy schmancy service to clean your tiles? Nope, you used a PEN to cover it all up.

    amazon.com

    Pen is ideal for use on floors and walls!

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors, and two sizes).

    37. A Schitt's Creek sticker so cute and funny, even people who don't watch the show can get quite the kick out of it.

    Etsy

    Promising review: "Hilarious! Fast shipping, good quality, exactly what I wanted to add to my sticker collection. Will definitely be purchasing more!" —Angie Charlier

    Get it from LaceyOlsonDesign on Etsy for $3.50.

    38. A pet hair remover glove perfect for brushing your fussy pet who HATES being brushed.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our kitten was very resistant to being brushed. He would bite the brush as if you were playing, and it was impossible to get in a good brushing session. This glove works great, he even purrs when we use it! Grabs a lot of fur and is easy to remove the fur from the glove and throw away. Highly recommend for brush-hating kitties!" —Stephanie Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    39. A ring size adjuster that'll make it simple to reduce the size of your ring so it fits and stays put on your finger, so you don't risk it falling off and losing it!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have skinny fingers with fat/wide knuckles. I cannot take my engagement ring down even a half size — or else it won’t fit over the bone. After purchasing these very comfortable, very durable size adjusters, I had to order another pack! I never want to be without these! The coil adjusters are easy to put on the ring (it might take a minute to get the coil around the ring but you’ll get the hang of it) and the coils don’t come off unless you undo them manually — which is VERY easy to do. It doesn’t damage the ring, either. Thank you so much, whoever patented this! It’s a lifesaver! I also think it’s great because it prevents the back of the ring from getting scratched when you wear it." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    40. A car cup holder trash can so you can properly dispose of trash in your vehicle. The floor is not the place to throw your Clif bar wrapper.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My sister had this in her car and I thought it was so nice to have and so convenient. Gum papers, straws, receipts...I guess you don't realize how many small pieces of trash that need to be thrown away. Definitely encourages a cleaner car and fits perfectly in my cup holder." —Amanda Hickman
