A tube of L’Oréal Lash Paradise mascara to elongate your lashes and your bank account, rather than purchasing the pricier, similar Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Even their rosy pink tubes are comparable!

An OuterEQ hammock for starting your next camping trip off on the right foot with an item less than half the cost of the reputable ENO hammock.

A Zenda Naturals blending sponge for blending your makeup at a much cheaper price than you would with the beautyblender — they do the same thing, promise.

A Takeya water bottle to keep your cold beverages cold, and your hot beverages hot at a fraction of the price of the beloved Hydro Flask.

A Wet n Wild Megalast matte lipstick that packs on the pigmentation as wonderfully as a brand like MAC does, without making you pack on hefty credit card charges.

An Oral-B toothbrush for getting your pearly whites just as fresh and clean and shiny as Philips Sonicare can. I heard Chip Skylark approves of this dupe!

A digital food thermometer you can buy for SO much cheaper than this other great food thermometer. Who needs to spend an absurd amount of money on something they just need to give them a temperature reading?

A Maybelline Fit Me translucent setting powder to help your cosmetics stay on your face and your money in your bank account, rather than spending it all on the similar Aesthetica Translucent Setting Powder.

A LuckyZ lightweight canvas backpack so you can pack away your belongings for the day in a bag that is just as reliable and functional, not to mention similar-looking, as the Fjällräven Kanken classic backpack.

Nivea moisturizing creme for keeping your skin silky smooth a super duper long time, and for WAYYY less than La Mer moisturizing cream.
