Sometimes, you don't have to spend a lot of money on something for it to significantly improve or impact your life. A Reddit thread I recently came across proved just that when u/systemkwiat asked: "What purchase under $100 improved your life?" A lot of these answers now have me adding things to my online cart.

Here are some of them.
1."A side sleeper pillow."
2."Waterpik. I can't believe how much crap gets stuck in the mouth. Even after using regular dental floss and then using a water flosser just to see what would happen, I still spit out stuff."
3."A book on gardening on a budget. I had nothing to do in my life at the time and needed a hobby. It was soothing and I felt like I accomplished something when I reused old furniture to make garden beds. I was depressed but gardening gave me a reason to get out of bed in the AM. Can’t leave my spinach thirsty right? I ate healthier, I met friends, and now it’s a passion for me."
4."A second monitor. Programming and schoolwork became so much easier."
5."I just got a water filter for my shower head. Now the water doesn't smell like chlorine."
6."Bought a jump pack for $50-$70. it jumped my car four times on one charge and still reported a 3/4 charge level. Super easy to use — just hook it in, push the power button, and then start the car — and it can charge phones and such too."
8."Dash Cam. More peace of mind when driving. Got one for my mom as well, not a month later it helped her win a court case against a scammer."
9."Real running shoes that were built for running!"
10."The suit and tie I bought at my local salvation army to land me the job of the century that changed my life."
11."A laptop stand. After working from home for a few months, my neck did not appreciate going back and fourth from the monitor down to the laptop. Now that they are on the semi-same level and it is much better."
12."Get a bidet. Game changer. Life changer."
"1000% came to say bidet. Environmentally responsible and clean and refreshing."
