Stop wasting your money buying tea in individual bags. Loose leaf is a godsend for people who drink a lot of tea and want to set their own caffeine and taste levels. Slenderizer offers a 1 lb bag for only $17, that’s almost 200 cups! I ordered a bag and have been using it daily for 3 months and it’s only halfway done. It comes in several flavors but the lean green machine is my personal favorite.

20) Clif Builders Bars (12 pack)

All the taste of your favorite chocolate bar without the guilt (and sugar). Clif Builders bars sell for $2-$3 at the grocery store but you can get a 12-pack on Amazon for $16. If there’s anything that makes sense to buy in bulk it’s certainly nutritional products like protein bars. These bars have a walloping 20 grams of protein and can be used to keep you from unnecessarily snacking throughout the day. They’re also great for post-workout recovery.

21) Odor Free, Moisture Wicking Workout Towel

Price: $11.97 Prime Eligible: Yes

I bought one of these thinking; how special can this towel really be? For half the price I can buy two towels from the grocery store that’ve always “worked” in the past for me. I was blown away by how well this towel actually wicks away body sweat. While doing cardio I drape it around my neck and it does a lot of the job without even having to lift it. It’s also great if you want to cool down after a workout: you just dip it in cold water and lay it on your head for instant gratification. It also dries pretty quickly so you don’t have to wash it after every workout.

22) Nature’s Passion 2 Ounce Relaxing Passionflower Extract

passionflower extract for sleeping
Price: $11.99 Prime Eligible: Yes

If you’re like me and spend much of your days caffeinating yourself and working on a computer, falling asleep can often be a challenge. While some turn to pharmaceuticals as sleep aids I prefer a more natural method. PassionFlower extract is 100% natural and has proven to be an effective sleep aid for people who suffer with insomnia. It’s the same stuff that goes in sleepytime tea and can be taken simply by placing some drops in a cold cup of water. The taste takes a little getting used to but the results speak for themself.

23) Screen Mom Natural LCD Screen Cleaner

screen mom natural cleaner for computer screens
Price: $16.95 Prime Eligible: Yes

This cleaning solution is specially formulated to clean sensitive electronic screens. Don’t risk using an abrasive cleaner like Windex on your $2,000 Macbook Pro. It comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth and can be used on phones and tablets as well. While it’s twice the price of a standard glass cleaner I can personally attest that it’s way more effective and doesn’t contain the harmful chemicals found in standard household cleaners.

24) Black Beard Shaving Apron

black beard apron for beard trimming
Price: $9.47 Prime Eligible: Yes

I’m not sure who likes this more, me or my wife. This apron keeps beard hairs from flying around the bathroom and/or clogging the sink.

bai antiodixent drink
Price: $22.42 Prime Eligible: Yes

These drinks are the shit! Not only do they have all the taste of a regular sweetened tea but they have only 10 calories per bottle. That’s mind boggling after you take your first sip considering how full-flavored and bold it tastes. There are no added sugars and they come with all the health benefits of a green tea of with natural added tastes like coconut, pineapple, raspberry, lime, and more.

26) Sporty Touch 4″ Coolmax Headband

sporty touch sweatband
Price: $15.95 Prime Eligible: Yes

Yes, $16 for a sweatband seems like a lot of money. I wasn’t a believer until I actually tried it for myself. Out of all the hats and headbands I’ve used over the years this is by far the most effective in keeping sweat out of my eyes. Best of all, you can wring it out and hang it up after you run and it’s dry the next day. Because of the high-technology fabric used, it also does a fantastic job of keeping your head cool in the sun.

27) Drinkwel Pills For Hangovers

Price: $21.04 Prime Eligible: Yes

“Your Body Will Thank You” is this company’s tagline.  For those who like to party these little pills are a lifesaver. I went on a bachelor party in Vegas last year and decided to pull the trigger on this 10 pack. It works by taking 3 pills before you start drinking and 3 pills before you go to bed. They’re all-natural and work by supporting your liver and helping you metabolize the common chemicals found in alcohol. I couldn’t believe how good I felt after consuming close to 8 beers and 5 shots in one sitting.

28) 2m Rubberized Undercoating Spray

3m undercoating for car
Price: $9.95 Prime Eligible: Yes

Nothing makes a car lose value quicker than rust on the undercarriage. This spray from 3m is easy to apply and prevents rust buildup caused by rain and ice.

Instructions are easy: clean the area with soap and water and spray. $10 is a small price to pay for keeping your car rust free.

29) AMAZKER 3D Sleep Mask

3d sleepmask
Price: $10.59 Prime Eligible: Yes

Most people don’t realize that melatonin has a major impact on our sleep cycles. Melatonin is a naturally-occurring chemical that is affected by light intake. While getting blackout curtains and turning off all your household lights is a good start using a mask like this can guarantee you’re eyes aren’t taking in any unnecessary light that causes disruptions to your sleep cycle. It’s soft, comfortable, and comes with a carrying case and set of earplugs.

30) Amazon Basics AA Batteries (48 pack)

48 battery pack from amazon
Price: $12.49 Prime Eligible: Yes

Stop overpaying at the grocery store for batteries. You know that you’ll continue to need them and why pay $6 for a 12-pack of energizers when you can buy in bulk from Amazon? They hold the same amount of charge as competing batteries and come at the very low price of $12.50 for 48 of them.
