From beauty staples to kitchen essentials: These items are only $1

Our team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission. Pricing and availability are subject to change. 

If you’re spending more time at home due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, you’re probably using up household essentials faster, which means more trips to the store (or late-night online shopping sessions) to stock up on the products you use every day. Instead of spending a ton of money on these essentials, there are ways to get these items for cheap, and we can’t argue with affordable prices.

While you might have to go down many rabbit holes of different retailers, there are items online for $1-$2 that will save you money in the long run. Or if you’re wanting to test out new products but don’t want to spend the money for a full-size product before you’ve tried it, you can test out different products by buying a travel-sized version as your own “sample.” Plus, a majority of the travel-sized goodies range anywhere from less than a dollar to $5.

Think of this list as your online dollar store — we’ve rounded up some of the best essentials found at Target that are as close to $1 as possible (we splurged and included some $2 items here and there). But, we’ll continue to add items as stock fluctuates and as we see good deals pop up, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often for new products added from a variety of retailers. Whether you’re testing out new recipes, below you can find a mix of $1-$2 personal care, kitchen and home items.
