Retail therapy is a fantastic way to relieve stress, improve a bad mood, and unwind after a long week. But that doesn’t mean you want to spend an arm and a leg every time the urge to shop strikes. There are loads of sites that sell an assortment of affordable goodies, but they tend to be companies you’ve never heard of or sellers who take ages to actually ship or have terrible customer service or just downright low quality products. Overall, it leads to a lackluster experience.

Amazon just created an entire section on their site for people like you and me. Everything is $10 or less, and even if you only spend $2, shipping is always free. You don’t even need to be a Prime member to take advantage. The shop is filled with all sorts of fun items, from apparel to accessories to home decor to party decorations and gifts, like these 15 things that I may or may not have purchased while writing this article.

1. A sequin pillow that's so fun to touch

Everyone you invite over will want to touch this pillow.

Run your fingers along this pillow to reveal a hidden color. The mermaid-style sequin application is insanely fun to play with for anyone who likes to fidget and fuss with things. Plus, it looks much prettier on your couch than a pile of fidget spinners does on your coffee table.

2. A water bottle to embrace better habits

You know you've been meaning to drink more water.

Staying hydrated has all sorts of health benefits, but if you've been buying bottled water from the store, you're spending way too much money to support a good habit. A good water bottle like this one from Nalgene is the perfect way to encourage yourself to drink more water without wasting loads of plastic bottles in the process.

3. A bookmark too charming not to use

One more reason to finally finish that book you started last year.

Sure, you could use an old receipt or a bobby pin to hold your place, but a real bookmark is a more much elegant solution. This one is the perfect blend of form and function, adding a little quirkiness that will make it hard to resist picking up where you left off.

You clip it to the side of your mixing bowl, crack an egg over it, and it separates yolk from white in a flash. No eggy fingers, no accidental yolk drips. It's just a bonus that it's adorable too.
