Sometimes, the coolest stuff you can get for your home is also the cheapest. Granted, finding these affordable products can be like finding a unicorn; that’s why I always like to check Amazon first. Not only do they have tons of cheap home products, but many even have thousands of positive reviews from shoppers who can’t believe their luck finding such steals. But don’t worry: If you don’t know where to start, I’ve gathered some of the best products for you right here.

And if you’re still skeptical, let me direct your attention to the miniature donut maker I’ve made sure to include. With more than 2,000 four- and five-star reviews, it’s clear that shoppers can’t get enough of making — and decorating — their own donuts. Or, if you’re looking for something functional instead of fun, there’s also a broom holder with more than 22,000 positive reviews. Many raved about how easy it is to install, with one writing, “Love, love, love the organization. I can fit so much with this! Very easy to attach.”
