(CNN) –

Do you want to treat yourself to a little retail therapy that’s not over budget? Although many of the cheap products on Amazon can be sold blindly, we have put together a number of products that we can confirm are worth the price – and some are even worth it. Below are some of our editors’ favorite purchases on Amazon, from items that make everyday household chores easier to the beauty products and accessories we love.

Safety knife for ceramic blades

Since I bought this simple and practical tool, I haven’t opened the bag with anything else. It has a very small blade that cuts boxes and strapping accurately and easily, while being held firmly in the hand to prevent accidents with scissors or knives. It also has a built-in magnet, making it easy to find and take with me in my fridge when I hurry to open my last impulse purchase at 3am. It works perfectly for craft projects and is a safer and more economical alternative to the X-Acto knife. – Daniel Toy, editor-in-chief.

TubShroom Ultra Edition

The rubber version of the TubShroom is known, but I recommend the stainless steel springs for the TubShroom Ultra Edition. Like its more ubiquitous counterpart, this TubShroom does wonders for catching hair and preventing crankbaits, but in my opinion it is much better when it comes to cleaning. The regular bathroom is a bit difficult to disinfect; lint, hair and sometimes fungus tend to get stuck in the holes, so you really need to wash your hands. It’s not the same for the Ultra edition. I’ve noticed that the dirt doesn’t really hold, which makes rinsing even easier (and less disgusting) for an extra dollar or two. – Chelsea Stone, Company Editor

Funkimonki Women

I wear these neon sandals almost every day and they are incredibly comfortable. They are super light, and because of the extremely low price I didn’t hesitate to buy the nice and bright color. When I put them on, they make me happy right away, and I get so many compliments when I wear them! – Haley Saltzman, director of social media.

Although we strive to use reusable bags for everyday tasks, a large percentage of plastic bags end up in most homes. If you want your shelter to be more orderly and stylish than when you put it in another plastic bag under the sink – or fill a drawer with it – then you need this dispenser. I hang it right above the litter box so it’s easy to grab when I have to clean it. The design is minimalistic and chic, and can hold up to 30 shopping bags. – Emmy Favilla, deputy editor-in-chief…

Yes, I like that Apple still has the Lightning cable in the box, but it’s a bit short. And for about 10 dollars you can get this super strong, long and nimble USB cable from Anker. You choose fun colors and it’s perfect for bedtime charging, managing the power cord on your desk, and countless other situations. – Jacob Krol, technical and electronic editor.

Bedding Satin Hair & Skin Pillowcase, 2-pack

I used this period of chaos to make sure that I was as wrong as possible in human (and financial) terms. This meant that I had to seriously improve my bed, in which, frankly, I spent more time than ever before. For a while I wanted pillowcases that looked like silk, and these extremely cheap pillowcases were all I was looking for. They feel like pure luxury, but a set of two costs less than $10. That’s the best we can do. – Rachel Lubitz, editor in chief, Lifestyle

Eyeliner NYX with epoxy ink

I’ve been a fan of this liquid eyeliner for years. It is very easy to apply, lasts all day (even on long, hot summer days), and the product itself lasts many months without drying. The best? The price is less than $10. After our employees had tested the best liquid eyeliners, we declared them our first budget choice. This is where the shop’s beautiful eyes really train! – Emmy Favilla, deputy editor-in-chief…

One of my biggest challenges was organizing my family’s groceries and meals, because I work at home with two little boys – until I got this magnetic board. I prepare the menu of the week for the weekend and put it on the plate, including snacks, so everyone knows what day we will have (me included!). I use the floor to write down the things we need to buy next time. It saved my mental health more than what I bought during the pandemic. – Dana Holmes, writer.

This backpack is a game-changer for anyone who has to carry their dirty laundry up the stairs or to the laundry room. The integrated backpack straps keep your hands free to open doors with ease, and the drawstring closure ensures that nothing falls out when you’re out. My favorite feature (besides the fact that it’s so easy to carry my laundry) is the front pocket, which is perfect for storing detergent, bleach, tumble dryers, quarters, or just about anything you need for your laundry. This thing certainly made the task I’d like to do more bearable. – Daniel Toy, editor-in-chief.

Wellness at home Raw crackers - Thin Pizza

When I first tried these crackers, I was sure there was no milk in them; in fact, they’re all herbs. Moreover, they are made of almond flour, so gluten-free, and contain less carbohydrates than ordinary biscuits. Every cracker tastes like pizza and is so addictive that you won’t be surprised if you eat a whole bag at once! (They also have the same delicious taste of fresh grass) – Emmy Favilla, Associate Editor.

I love the Apple Watch’s nightstand mode, and although the sleep tracking feature will be available this fall, I still like to have good support for it. This Elago W3 standard resembles the original Macintosh computer, and the Apple Watch looks like a perfect screen. It’s made of durable rubber material and has a good weight, and the Apple Watch fits well indoors. – Jacob Krol, technical and electronic editor.

Is there anything more satisfying than taking notes in a beautifully designed notebook? Whether you use it to create a workday-to-do list, a shopping list or a diary, this set of three beautiful flower notebooks from Rifle Paper Co. will make you smile every time you take it. The pages are clearly explained and the set is also a useful gift for any occasion. – Emmy Favilla, deputy editor-in-chief…

I make lots of salads for lunch and dinner, and after picking enough kale to feed a whole village, I finally invested in this great gadget that does all the work for me. Now making my favorite cauliflower Caesar salad with a spicy dressing (don’t judge until you try it) is easier than ever. – Rachel Lubitz, editor in chief, Lifestyle

The classic Wahdam tea infuser

I like loose tea and that’s why I have an extensive collection of beautiful tea buckets – but this tea bucket is the only one that really, really works! It prevents the leaves from falling out and ending up in my tea. It’s not so small that the water can’t flow naturally through the leaves when they soak, and it’s easy to throw it in the dustbin and then in the dishwasher. – Dana Holmes, writer.

I’ve always lived in small city apartments with very limited storage space, so it was a challenge to find a plate holder that fits perfectly in my narrow drawers – until I found this product on the Amazon. It is not only suitable for a lot of silverware, but it is also made of very durable, high quality materials and is very affordable. There are also rubber stickers on the bottom so that it doesn’t slip. – Stephanie Griffin, social media strategist.

O’Keefe Working Hands Cream

I’ve had very dry skin on my hands most of my life. In winter, with the strong New York wind and cold weather, my hands are often cracked and very painful. Even in summer I apply hand cream daily to keep my hands hydrated. So when I noticed the thousands of rave reviews for this lotion, followed by some sort of cult status, I was intrigued (I recommend seeing the before and after pictures of customers – you will be!).

It turns out the hype is real. This stuff WORKS, and it only takes a small amount to add enough moisture. I use it all year round and I especially don’t go outside without it when the temperature drops. It’s also available in tube if you like, and I’ve heard good things about foot cream. – Emmy Favilla, deputy editor-in-chief…

I don’t think I can forgive myself for waiting so long to try the screens. I don’t have much space under my closets, and I feel like I’m touching this outfit every day. It’s great for draining berries and storing pasta, it’s a game changer. – Rachel Lubitz, editor in chief, Lifestyle

Toys for extreme dogs

If, like me, you have a puppy whose only mission in life is to destroy any stuffed animal that gets in his way in less than ten minutes, then you know how important it is to invest in durable dog toys that can withstand strong chewing. This original Kong toy is a classic for a good reason. In five different sizes it can withstand the anger of almost any dog toy. It’s also designed to be easily filled with treats or peanut butter, which is perfect when you need to get out of the house and distract your dog, or when you’re training a new puppy in a crate. (Plus, this band Kong toy is a long-time success.) – Emmy Favilla, Assistant Editor.
