22 Brilliant Finds For Under $1 On Amazon

Amazon is an incredible website when it comes to comparing prices and finding exactly what you need. That being said, most people don't know that it can be your own personal online dollar store, too. If you know where to look, you can find life-changing things on Amazon for under $1, and some of them are surprisingly high quality, too.

As a millennial, I'm pretty careful about the way I spend the remainder of my paycheck. (I'm looking at you, student loans.) Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd much rather skip the $20 name-brand reusable grocery bag and buy one bag — plus 19 other beauty and household items — for the exact same amount.

On certain sections of Amazon, you can narrow down your minimum and maximum prices so you're only shown items in your price range. Now, I'm not going to lie to you; when your price range is $0 to $1, you do sometimes get some eyebrow-raising items. Lots of nose rings, and the occasional pasta side dish pouch of Alfredo broccoli noodles. That's why I sorted through these products for you to find only the most useful, coolest, and best Amazon has to offer. Here are some brilliant finds that you can get for under $1.
