Ecoigy Wool Dryer Balls

$10

This simple product was by far the most popular among Cheapism readers in 2020 — and it's still the top seller in 2021. Pop one, two, or even three of these in the dryer along with a load of laundry and you'll never go back to using fabric softener sheets again. That's the enthusiastic consensus from buyers on Amazon, who praise this set of six New Zealand-made wool dryer balls as a scent-free, organic alternative to chemical dryer sheets. Keep an eye on the price, though; we've seen this selling for less than $9 and as much as $15 in the recent past.

Emergency Heating Kit

A multiwick candle can give off a surprising amount of heat and light if you're stranded in cold weather (just don't forget the matches — wooden are better than cardboard because fingers get stiff and clumsy with the cold). This soy-wax candle can burn for 36 hours and comes in a reusable aluminum tin. If you’re headed out in a storm before buying, make an emergency heater kit by bringing a metal coffee can with the flammable label removed, or an old cooking pot or saucepan and a sealable freezer bag holding several metal-cup tea light candles.
