Spending money will always be easier than saving it — but that doesn’t mean you can’t be smart with what you’re spending it on. My best tip? Focus your spending on useful products. That way, you get to scratch that impulse shopper itch, and you’re still walking away with a haul of helpful things you’ll get genuine use out of.
But if you aren’t sure what counts as a useful product? Not a problem, as this list is chock-full of genius products you’ll find yourself reaching for everyday — like the Bluetooth speaker I’ve made sure to include. The waterproof design means you can jam out to music in the shower, or even take it with you on a trip to the beach. Or, if you like to have guests over for dinner, make sure to check out this stainless steel meat thermometer. For less than $15, it’ll give you peace of mind that those steaks are the perfect medium-rare, not raw.
And because I’m trying to help you be smart with your money, I’ve made sure that all these wildly useful products cost $20 or less. So what are you waiting for? That Bluetooth speaker isn’t going to add itself to your cart, you know.
