I'm not here to knock dollar stores, because I happen to love them — but the selection can be hit-or-miss, and sometimes the quality is less than ideal. Luckily, for anyone on a budget, there are other options. Amazon is loaded with products that cost $5 or less, and the amount of reviewers vouching for the quality might just surprise you.

Personally, I'm always on the lookout for a good deal. If I can fill my cart with a dozen products and still check out under $30, it's been a good day. That being said, no one wants to waste money on something that breaks after a day or just sits around collecting dust. Consequently, you'll be happy to hear that Amazon often supplies affordable things that you'll actually use on a day-to-day basis. You can now clean your makeup brushes, automatically light your hallway, protect your designer sunglasses, and whiten your teeth, all without making much of a dent in your bank account.

So whether you're in the market for bizarre gifts under $5 or you're shopping for yourself, these are the affordable things you'll actually want — and you won't even have to bargain hunt to find them.
