I don’t know about you, but shopping makes me feel good — and I’m not going to limit my happiness just because my bank account only has $27.50 in it (and neither should you, IMHO). Instead, let’s stick to buying all the clever things on Amazon under $25. Many of them will make you look as great as you’ll feel — whether you’re splurging on a new top or a rejuvenating face mask infused with pumpkin honey (because, yes, that’s on this list).
Anyway, like I said: My bank account has a whopping $27.50 in it — which is why I’ve made sure that everything on this list is $25 or
less. That mans I can grab that brightening pumpkin face mask, two satin pillowcases, as well as a volume-enhancing mascara and still have enough money for a cheap taco afterward. But if you’ve got more money to burn than I do, let me direct your attention to these adorable slides that come in dozens of colors. Come next paycheck, they’re going directly into my cart.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money while shopping for things that make you feel better, and all the clever products I’ve gathered for you here are proof. So what are you waiting for? I wasn’t kidding about how many colors
those slides come in, you know.

These Viscose Washcloths That Exfoliate All Over
