The 10 Best Ways to Spend $20 (According to Reddit)

Some of the best things in life don’t have to cost a ton of money. With that in mind, Lifehacker compiled some of the most life-changing items that cost less than $20–as suggested by Reddit users. Here are 10 of them (see full list at the link):

Windshield ice scraper with a brass blade. Brass is softer than glass, so it won’t scratch.

Mini skillet. This is ideal for small dishes, like over-easy eggs.

Rice cooker. In addition to rice, you can cook pasta, soup and vegetables.

Adopt a pet. It’s worth it–even if they cost a lot more money later on.

A 10-foot phone charger. Stay charged all over your apartment.

Gag gift. The gift that keeps on giving.

Cross-stitch kit. This will keep you entertained for hours.

Heating pad. Alternatives: a microwaveable cloth rice bag or a hot water bottle.

Reusable water bottle. It will save you a huge amount of money (and waste) in the long run.

A specialized gadget. Example: A guitar tuner that clips to the head of the guitar and displays the note being played from vibrations.

Hmm, I don’t know if those are all genuinely the best way to spend $20…
