52 Cheap Things That Are Really, Really Popular On Amazon

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.


One of two things happen whenever I check my credit card bill: I either see that it’s too high and start to panic or discover that it’s surprisingly low and go on a spending spree. Depending on how low it is, that spending spree can get me in trouble — which is why I’ve made a deal with myself. I can still buy a few little fun extras at the end of every month, but only if they’re one of the cheap things on Amazon that are really, really popular.

And while that might sound a little restrictive, trust me — there’s a ton of cool stuff on Amazon if you know where to look. Case in point? This night light that snaps into the bottom of your outlet plates. No longer will you have to take up two outlets just to use one bulky night light, and it doesn’t even require any complicated wiring. But if that isn’t enough, I’ve also made sure to include silky pillowcases, stylish dry food dispensers, and even a handy kit to help you style your brows.

Like I said, all these cheap things are really popular on Amazon — so it’s probably a good idea to keep scrolling and add a few to your cart now while they’re still in stock.
