After a few too many shockingly high credit card bills, I’ve finally decided it’s time to hunker down and start saving money.

This way, I can still have the flexibility to scratch that shopping itch without breaking my monthly budget.

And if you’d like to start saving too, feel free to check out all these genius items that can help you save a sh*t ton of money. From drywall repair kits to wireless doorbells, I’ve made sure to include a variety of products that are either an affordable alternative to something expensive or can help you cut down on your monthly costs.

Packing lunch is an easy way to save money, making this food jar a smart investment. Its double-wall insulation helps cold food stay chilled for up to 10 hours, while hot food can stay warm for up to seven — and the stainless steel exterior is even resistant to rust. Choose from 16 colors.

A smooth cup of Joe is only a few minutes away when you have this French press at your disposal.

Not only are these wine glasses made from unbreakable stainless steel, but each one also comes with a matching lid to help prevent spills.

With an extra-deep pocket that can accommodate mattresses up to 15 inches, it’s incredibly less like that this fitted sheet will furl up out of place while you sleep.

Ceramic, wood, rubber — this moldable glue is formulated to adhere to nearly any surface.

Don’t risk spilling that bottle of nail polish — instead, pop it into this silicone holder for safekeeping.

This shampoo bar is an easy way to stay clean while packing light or saving money on pricy bottles (it should last about as long as two to three bottles, in fact).
