30 Of The Best Products On Amazon Under $30
Rebecca Martinson

Speaking as someone who’s been shopping online for more than 20 years, I’m sort of an expert when it comes to finding the “best” stuff. You know what I’m talking about — the kinds of products that won’t break the bank, but that you’ll wind up using every day. And if I’m being honest? Amazon’s got the best-of-the-best when it comes to stuff you actually want to buy.

And while you might be skeptical at first? Trust me — you’ll become a believer after just a quick scroll through this list. Not only does Amazon have organizers for everything and everything, but they’ve also got back stretchers, omelet bakers, and even a spray that gets rid of stains instantly.

So what are you waiting for? I know your back probably hurts as much as mine — and just like everything else on this list, you can be the proud owner of that back stretcher for less than $30.

We hope you find these handy products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We participate in affiliate programs and may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.

1. The Stretcher That Can Help Alleviate Back Pain

Believe it or not, your back doesn’t have to feel sore after a long day — just use this stretcher to help melt away aches and pains.

2. A Foot File That Powers Through Tough Skin

Got tough heels that lotions can’t penetrate? This foot file is great for exfoliating away dead skin, leaving you with baby-soft feet. It’s gentle enough to use on wet skin, and the grate is even made from rustproof stainless steel.

3. This Butter Crock Just Looks Plain Good

Butter is stable enough to be kept safely outside of your fridge, as long as it’s in an airtight container — like this crock. It’s made from chic ceramic that’ll look good sitting out on your table, and you can even fit an entire stick of butter inside. Plus, butter is easier to spread when warm, so it can even save you a little mealtime frustration.

4. An Acupressure Mat That Can Help Reduce Soreness

You only need to lie on this acupressure mat for about 10 minutes — that’s all it takes for the thousands of raised points to help melt away tension from your muscles. And if you’re worried about being able to stay on it for so long? One reviewer wrote that it “takes a little getting used to in bare feet, but can work up to it by wearing socks, or putting a piece of cloth over it.”

6. A Five-In-One Utensil That Can Do A Bit Of Everything

This utensil might look like a spoon, but you can use it for so much more than eating soup.
