These Things Under $25 Are Really Weird & Interesting & I Want Them All

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.

Saving money isn’t as easy as it sounds. When a night out with friends can cost more than $80, it’s nearly impossible to put away anything significant into your bank account — but that doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of having fun. Personally? I like to browse all the weird things you can find on Amazon for under $25.

And yes — I know shopping online in your spare time might not sound that exciting, but hear me out: With so many interesting products priced at less than $25, you can easily buy two, three, or even four new things without breaking $80. But if you need examples, make sure you scroll far enough to check out the angry mama microwave steamer. At less than $10, the kitchen tool is cheaper than buying a bottle of cleaner to wipe out the inside of your microwave — and you can even use it as many times as you need. There are also reusable paper towels, spaghetti monster strainers, and even fuzzy hand towels designed to look like cats — all at more than reasonable price.

While saving money is very rarely fun, these weird-but-affordable things on Amazon can at least give you some amusement without putting strain on your wallet. Frankly, I think I can even hear that microwave steamer calling your name — keep scrolling for more.

This Container That Helps Keep Guacamole Fresh

Tired of your guacamole turning brown? The trick is an airtight container like this one.
