I Love a Cheap-Thrill Purchase—These 37 Items From Amazon Are Doing It for Me

As a fashion lover on a budget, I’m constantly on the hunt for a bargain. Whether that’s scoring a pair of vintage Levi’s from the thrift store or snagging a dress that finally went on sale, I don’t think there’s a purchase that is more satisfying than a good deal.

Instead of mindlessly scrolling on Instagram, I scoured Amazon for some killer deals. I found an absurd number of budget-friendly options, from sweaters to jewelry, that I couldn’t resist sharing. Not only did I find a bag that feels like it’s straight out of the Y2K era for under $30, but I also found multiple similar piecesHonestly, I feel like these bags really won’t ever go out of style. I’m calling it now. If you’re looking for a strong cropped sweater and don’t want to spend $400 on it, there’s one for under $25 that comes in multiple colors. Don’t worry: It’s already been added to my cart.

Also, I know it might not be the season for sandals, but there’s a pair of Teva dupes that looks so comfortable for under $20 that you can easily wear with socks. If the socks-with-sandals look isn’t your vibe, there’s a pair of mules for under $50 that you can pair with jeans or a good pair of trousers.
