Greetings and happy almost Halloweenis.
The other day as I took a luxurious 15-minute shower while watching YouTube favorites videos,(yes I prop my phone in a high corner of my shower it only gets a lil water on it) I realized that so many of my favorite things are not expensive. And that my friends, is worth sharing.
So here we go.
Health & Beauty
Dollar Store Shave Cream – $1
This lotion-like shave cream from Dollar Tree is really amazing and you get 7 ounces for just a buck. I heard about it on TikTok and 100% will be repurchasing.
Tinkle Eyebrow Razors – $4.50 for 6
These handy little razors are great for those rogue eyebrow hairs and also any unwanted fuzz on yer mug. A have done my entire face and did not see that much of a difference, but this tool made it super easy and yeah, they cost about 75 cents apiece.
Eco Lips Lip Balms – $1.99
Yes, they just dropped their holiday collection (candy cane, gingerbread and raspberry truffle!) and these lip balms cannot be beat. They are certified vegan, fair trade and cruelty free, plus they are the smoothest, best quality lip balms out there for under $2 each. Go get you some!
Billie Razors – $9
I have been using Billie razors for over 2 years now (not sponsored btw) and they are just amazing quality razors. Every 2 months, I get 4 razor cartridges shipped to my door for $9 (free shipping) in very minimal, eco-friendly packaging. Billie recommends using each cartridge for about 7 shaves, but I have gone up to 10-12 with no issues. If you are interested in signing up for a subscription – click here! I promise you will love it!
Earth to Skin Hand Sanitizers – $6.99 for a 6-pack
These little hand sanitizers from Walmart are great and so handy! At 2 ounces, they are twice as big as the ones from Bath & Body Works, but still travel-sized and cost about half as much. The formula smells great, is quick-drying and leaves hands moisturized. My favorite is the watermelon scent.
FOOD & home
Liberty Creek Pinot Grigio – $5.99
I know I talk about my beloved Lib Creek alot on this blog. But you guys. It tastes good and costs $5.99 for a 1.5 liter bottle at Rite Aid. As I was leaving my local Rite Aid at 8 pm the other night, carrying 3 un-bagged bottles of this and nothing else, a lovely woman passed by me in the parking lot and shouted, “that’s my kinda girl!” at me. We stan LC.
Walmart Candles – $3.33
I have tried several of the $3.33 Mainstays candles from Walmart (Mulled Cider is a fave) and this one is top notch! My only complaint with these candles is how quickly they burn down, but hey, they cost less than a pint of Ben & Jerry’s! The notes are “a woody and spicy fragrance that combines a warm blend of fresh black peppercorn, golden birch, Patchouli, smoked guaiac and rich suede accord create a cozy fall cocoon.” It smells so much more expensive than it is!
S.O.S Pads – $3.50 for 18
I know. We’ve entered the territory of some real exciting sh*t! But these are blog-worthy. If your mother has never told you about the wonder of S.O.S pads, allow me. They are basically little steel wool discs with soap built-in and they work AMAZING. I have used them on many things other than dishes, like shower doors, bathroom sinks and the microwave. SO good you guys!
Dollar Tree Sponges – $1
More love from Dollar Tree! If you can find these sponges, pick them up! They are by far my favorite and…you guessed it – they cost a buck. Hat tip to one of my favorite TikTok accounts @vaneamaro91 (a professional housekeeper) for talking about these and giving out THE BEST cleaning tips and tricks.
Mrs. Meyers Multi-Surface Concentrate – $8.99
We have had this bottle of the Mrs. Meyers Honeysuckle Concentrate for over 2 years. We use it as a counter cleaner by mixing 1/4 cup in a gallon of water and pouring it into a spray bottle. I also love it on our hardwood floors, just a splash in a sink full of warm water does the whole kitchen and it smells amazing. 32 ounces for $9 is highway robbery, I am telling you!
Thanks for reading everyone! And leave any of your recommendations for best bargains below!
