I have a weakness for dollar stores. I mean the good kind, where everything in the store actually costs just one dollar. From small useful items to silly toys to candy, it's fun (and handy) to grab a bunch of items when they're only a buck each.

For those times when you can't or don't want to make it to a dollar store, Amazon can fill that void. I combed through the massive retail site's offerings to find the best products that cost within 5 cents of a dollar. Prices seem to fluctuate with these items, but I can assure you at the time of publication, they really are that cheap. And of course, the beauty in cheap things is that sometimes they can prove to be priceless.
