Let’s face it: Pretty much everything at IKEA feels like a steal thanks to their perennially super low prices. But that doesn’t mean we still aren’t stoked to discover that the mega-retailer offers a slew of cleaning and organizing items you can take home for just $1.
That’s right. A buck. For less than a cup of coffee, you can score an assortment of awesome housekeeping tools that are every bit as stylish as they are inexpensive.
Don’t believe us? We rounded up the best cleaning and organizing products you can find at IKEA for $1 or less each. From colorful food containers to a legendary dishtowel, here are 10 tidying items at IKEA for only a buck a pop.
1. ANTAGEN Dish Brush, 49 cents
A good dish scrubber makes washing dishes a breeze—but a cute and colorful dish scrubber for 50 cents? Well that’s just the stuff our IKEA dreams are made of. The ANTAGEN comes in five different hues and even boasts a hole in the handle, so you can hang it up when not in use.
2. FLYT Magazine File, $1.99 for 5
Finding stylish (and affordable) ways to organize your workstation isn’t always easy. However, with a five-pack of FLYT magazine files, you can turn your desk into a streamlined workspace for a few bucks.
3. TEKLA Dish Towel, 79 cents
While there aren’t too many dishtowels on the market that can claim they have a cult following, the TEKLA breaks the mold. Not only is this 79-cent wonder a superior dishtowel, it can be repurposed into everything from a table napkin to a café curtain, for less than the price of a pack of gum.
4. SUNNERSTA Container, 79 cents
Staying organized in a cramped kitchen is tough. That’s why the SUNNERSTA mini-container is such a game changer. You can use one to store anything from kitchen utensils to food compost on your kitchen counter, and the best part is that it’ll only cost you 79 cents.
5. PLUTT Self-adhesive Hooks, 99 cents for 3
Searching for a renter-friendly way to score some extra storage space? PLUTT hooks attach directly to your wall with self-adhesive tape, so you can forge a vertical storage scheme for less than a buck—no hammer or nails necessary.
6. TACKAN Toilet Brush, 69 cents
Toilet brushes: Can’t live without ’em, but they aren’t very fun to look at. Luckily, the TACKAN comes with a sleek (and discreet) holder that will fit nicely next to your toilet and perhaps more importantly, will only set you back 69 freakin’ cents.
7. SPRUTTIG Hangers, $1.49 for 10
Organizing your closet, especially if it’s small, can be a daunting task indeed. Thankfully, you can pick up a 10-pack of SPRUTTIG hangers for a dollar and change, and hang your beloved pants, shirts, and skirts using less space than you would with bulky (and expensive) wooden hangers.
8. PRUTA Food Container, 99 cents for 3
“Cute” isn’t typically a word we use to describe plastic food containers, but the PRUTA three-pack is an exception. Fashioned with cheery yellow lids, these compact storage containers are great for storing everything from leftovers to portable lunches, and look insanely adorable lined up in your fridge.
9. BUMERANG Pants/Skirt Hanger, 99 cents
Looking for an inexpensive way to upgrade your closet storage situation? BUMERANG hangers are perfect for hanging up skirts and pants, and despite being chic and chrome-plated, only cost a buck a pop.
10. FNISS Trash Can, 99 cents
For as much as we use our trashcans at home, most look, well, like garbage. Composed of easy-to-clean plastic, the 99-cent FNISS trashcan is surprisingly attractive, and at three gallons, can squeeze into even the most cramped of spaces.
