Many times in life, you get exactly what you pay for. But not always — in fact, you can often get huge value and spend almost nothing at all.

Believe it or not, some of the best, most useful products at Amazon don’t have a hefty price tag. These are items that make everyday life a little easier — or more fun — yet only cost a few bucks.

Following are some great items that cost less than $5 at Amazon.

Although prices you see here will almost always be accurate, they sometimes differ slightly from what you will find when you check Amazon. We suggest that you compare prices around the web before buying anything online to confirm you’re getting the best price available at that time.

Note: Orders of some nonessential items may be delayed while Amazon prioritizes shipment of essentials due to the coronavirus. To find out when a particular item would arrive, look for the “delivery date” during the checkout process.
