46 Amazing Bargain Finds on Amazon That Are Worth WAY More Than They Cost

Published

on

I love a bargain more than just about anything in the world. There’s something so satisfying about coming across a product, checking the price tag, and seeing a number that’s much lower than what you expected. That, in a nutshell, is exactly what you’ll find with all these awesome products on Amazon that are surprisingly cheap.

Now, admittedly, my first instinct when stumbling upon a good deal is to keep it all to myself — simply because it feels too good to be true; I’m afraid that if I tell everyone else about it, it’ll disappear like a puff of smoke.

Of course, this is irrational. These products aren’t fleeting illusions of magic. They’re just glorious and affordable (although they honestly do feel like magic sometimes). And the fact is: Sharing these amazing finds actually brings me joy, since I know you’ll get that same satisfaction I get when you add that suspiciously budget-friendly product to your shopping cart.

The best part? Since they’re so affordable, you don’t have to limit yourself to just one or two things. So go ahead and treat yourself to some products that seem much more expensive than they are — and pat yourself on the back for the money you saved while you were at it.

It also doubles as a tablet stand, so you can FaceTime and watch videos without having to hold your device.

These Compression Socks That Boost Workout Performance

Physix Gear Sport Compression Socks
Amazon

High-intensity workouts can be hard on muscles, but these compression socks work to promote circulation and blood flow, which encourages recovery and prevents swelling. Rising to just below the knee, the shock-absorbing socks provide targeted compression to the feet, heels, and calves, but won’t squeeze the toes. They’re also made from double-stitched lycra, so they’re moisture-wicking and breathable. Choose from 10 color combinations.

Tweets About Jennifer Garner’s Viral Video Bathing Her Cat

Published

on

Jennifer Garner is many things. A top-notch actress, a mother, a philanthropist, and apparently, a cat wrangler. Sort of. A video of the Alias star recently went viral for all the best reasons, as it is simultaneously ridiculous and relatable. The viral cat video was posted by Twitter user Isabel Alcántara, who captioned it: “This video of Jennifer Garner bathing her cat takes up at least 1/4 of my mental real estate.” One viewing of the nearly-two-minute-long clip will have anyone agreeing.

In the video, Garner attempts to wash her cat Moose, who had apparently “pooped his pants.” The 49-year-old entertainer then struggles to keep her feline friend in the sink, to get him clean, and to avoid being clawed. Those who bathe their own cats know that walking away from such an activity unscathed is impossible, and by the end, Garner has some nasty cuts on her neck.

While the video features Garner doing something fairly mundane, she’s hilarious and entertaining. Everything she says throughout the clip is an instantly iconic quote, including such gems as, “He’s befouled” and “What’s to be done?” At one point, Garner moves the cat’s head so as to make him sing, “Yes I’ve seen the Muffin Man!” Of course, at the end, when it seems like the ordeal is over, she realizes she missed a step: “Oooh. We didn’t get to do conditioner.”

It didn’t take long for thousands of Twitter users to watch the video and share it, making Garner’s cat-washing adventure quickly go viral. People obviously loved every second of it, and they made their adoration known via tweets.
