Amazon Goodies Under 1 Dollar

by KaitlynDeMetro

Inexpensive Amazon goodies for under $1.00 Great buy for yourself or an awesome Christmas gift for under a buck.

As my Grandma always says, don't use the word "cheap," say "inexpensive." Amazon has always been known for it's great prices but rarely are there good products ANYWHERE for under a dollar. With Christmas coming up, it's hard to shop for everyone when you're on a strict budget. Amazon has a surprising variety of products at a shockingly low price.

Amazon offers a lot of different items for under $1. The shipping tends to cost a few dollars more than the item itself but as an old professor once said, "you're paying for convenience." The beauty here is that if you have Amazon Prime, you don't have to pay for shipping- if something is 50 cents, you get it for 50 cents.

Christmas isn't about what you spend; it's about who you spend it with. That being said, here a few options of inexpensive..okay cheap things you can buy at Amazon.

Bottle Opener Ring for $0.01

This ring is the perfect gag gift for that one person we all know who loves their beer more than life itself. Reviews say it really does work on opening bottles and it comes in a large size.

  • The default price for this item is $1.30 with free shipping, however if you choose a different seller you get it for 1 cent plus 2 dollar shipping. Coupons or possibly Amazon Prime can rid you of shipping costs so all you pay is a penny.
  • Each item had the highest number of ratings at 5 Stars.
  • The men and women's rings you can get at any size and the price stays the same.
  • I actually own the Vintage Owl Necklace. I bought it from Amazon and it's stayed in great quality for over a year now.

Van Gogh for Under $2.00

You can carry Van Gogh's masterpieces "Irises" and "Starry Night" with these compact notebooks, perfect for anything from notes and thoughts, to shopping and grocery lists.

  • Product Dimensions: 5.5 x 4.1
  • 64 pages
  • Price is listed at 1.99 but other sellers offer the same product, not used, for just a penny.

Wine seems to go hand in hand with the holidays. Call it tradition but we all like a little booze to soften the stress of the season. These are a couple things you may need, as well as labels for gifting wine.

  • Double Hinged Waiters Corkscrew only $1.90 with free shipping.
  • Wine Bottle Wrap includes a "To/From" label and neck band plus free shipping on certain orders.
  • Cups made from natural wood. Useful for any drink from wine to tea. Only $1.89- great price if you want to buy in pairs of 2 or 4.

Look out for an upcoming piece titled "Christmas Gifts for Wine Lovers," for more winey options.

The new year is a great time for replacing old, raggedy pet toys with some newer ones, and at realistic prices.

  • Rope ball is 100% rope tightly bound. Available in small, medium, and large- each for under 3 dollars, great for either cats or dogs.
  • Plush Fishbone Cat Toy features catnip and a teaser cord with a bell.
  • Santa Clause squeeze toy made with latex and perfect for dogs who love chewable, squeaky toys.

Safety and Self Defense Gear for Under $5.00

Only $6.99
Liroyal 1pcs Keychain Keyring
Only $3.21

A thoughtful gift for a daughter going to college, or even just a gift to yourself. Self defense is important at every age and every season and for every person.

  • Credit Card Safety Knife is slimmer than other knives but strong enough to do some real damage should you ever need to use it. Folds down to look like a credit card for discreet carrying. Comes in black or pink.
  • Self Defense Cat is all metal and attaches to your key chain. It slips on your fingers like brass knuckles in case you need to protect yourself in a dangerous situation. Comes in black or pink. Pink is cheaper from this seller. Just check your local laws as this could be illegal in some states.

Now is the time to buy things for Christmas. It's funny to see Christmas decor being sold before Halloween but once November hits, that stuff skyrockets. Plus if you buy now, you won't be so strapped for money come Christmas Eve when you're running around trying to get everything done last minute.

I love what you can get with $ 1 from Amazon. Clearly, we can still beat the inflation in the festive seasons.

It's my favorite place to shop because even if you find what you're looking for, you'll see something even better. And I especially love that they have multiple sellers that you can choose from for one product so you can choose which price you like or where it ships from.
