We’ve all heard the old saying, “Quality over quantity.” But other than big-ticket items, no one really talks about which quality products everyone should keep around the house.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve just moved into your own place or if you’ve been in your home your entire life — these products are must-haves. They’ll save you time, keep you comfortable and might even help you discover your inner interior designer.
Here’s our list of 15 things under $25 you’ll use again … and again.
Promising review: I bought these socks for my mom and she said that [they] really keep her feet warm all day. The texture is very soft and does not change after washing. I would buy them again.
Promising review: I’m deathly afraid of spiders but I feel bad killing them and with the summer coming up the spiders are starting to show up more. This actually works!!! It’s really easy and does not harm the spiders at all. Comes with an attachment so that you could hang it up in a pantry or garage. Thank goodness for critter catchers!!
Promising review: These are magical! We moved a few years ago and the previous owner had a built in stain they had hid under a couch ... We had professional carpet cleaners come twice and they couldn’t get it out. ... I bought these for pet stains but I though why not just try that stain. I assumed nothing would happen. The next day it had soaked up the stain!! I love these!!
Promising review: I'm a stickler for properly defrosting meat after working in food service for years and this makes that process super easy and surprisingly quick! I've even convinced my father, retired rocket scientist, that this is the best way to defrost.
Promising review: Sugru is so versatile and easy to use. I wish I had bought it sooner and I had to reorder two more packs after two days of fixing. It has saved me money from having to rebuy broken items (saving hundreds of dollars), and it helped restore and reinforce things that couldn't be replaced!
Promising review: Not sure how these work but my strawberries that go bad in three days [now] last over a week! Totally worth it!
Promising review: I used this on my grandma's antique dresser to get rid of some water marks, and was absolutely shocked and thrilled at the same time! Worth every penny!
Promising review: I love pasta but didn't love dragging out a big pot, filling it with a ton of water, watching it boil, turning it down, hoping the water wouldn't overboil all over the stove, draining it into a colander, getting a face full of steam and having all these dishes to wash later. With this gadget, it's easy pasta on the fly. It's foolproof.
Promising review: These Non Stick liners are the best I have ever purchased. The fit was exactly what I needed and there are no fumes or smell when installed. So easy to clean! They truly protect your oven from all spills and reduce clean up time. I was so impressed with these items I couldn't wait to share with my friends and family.
Promising review: [I've] always hated wasting the last bit of a bottle because I wasn't patient enough to get it out ... This product works great! No more wasted product.
Promising review: I couldn't wait to see if these really worked. As soon as I received them I went to work sealing bags of opened chip bags. They worked! No more stale chips. They have a built in magnet, so I can keep them handy on the fridge. I am really impressed with them. No waiting time, no buttons to mess with. Just slide the protective cover away to expose the roller and run it across what you want to seal. Easy!
Promising review: This outlet cover is perfect! It was super easy to install...under 1 minute. The night light gives off a good amount of light and keeps the outlets available. I'm going to buy more of these to place them throughout my house.
Promising review: So amazing I love it and pictures do not do it justice! It lights up my whole room! Easy install! Just stunning! It’s going to be so much better doing my makeup with it!
Promising review: I am very pleased with how the back splash turned out! I was a bit nervous when I started adhering the pieces to the wall, but once I got the process going, it was very easy. It gave my kitchen a very nice facelift. Great product!
Promising review: I used them to organize some smaller bathroom products above my sink for extra storage. They hold well and haven't tried to come off the wall despite being full.
