Despite what you might’ve learned in high school, popularity can be important — when it comes to shopping online, that is. If a product has thousands of glowing reviews, you can almost certainly rest assured that it’ll be worth the money. But if it’s only got a few, you’ll probably be better off keeping that particular item out of your shopping cart. So when I say that this list is full of wildly popular Amazon products, I mean it. Don’t be surprised if they sell out in the near future.
I know what you’re thinking. “Sell out? The entire list? Unlikely.” And normally, I’d agree with you — but I’ve made sure that each item featured below is popular and priced at less than $30. That means you’ll be able to grab detoxifying charcoal body wash, chic string lights, and even a Bluetooth adapter for your car, all without breaking the bank. But if that isn’t enough? Make sure to check out the cooling towel I’ve made sure to include. With warmer weather quickly approaching, you’ll be glad you grabbed it before it sells out.
Popularity isn’t everything, but it can definitely help when shopping online. And with all of these wildly popular products priced at $30 or less, be sure to grab a few while you’re here — and before they sell out.

Tired of cleaning up sticky refrigerator shelves? Just put these liners down. Not only will they keep your shelves safe from spills, but you can also trim them into any size or shape you need.

3. The detoxifying body wash made with organic charcoal
Lather yourself up with this body wash for a deep, detoxifying clean.

4. A plug designed to work with nearly any drain
If you’ve misplaced the plug that came included with your sink, this one is universally designed to fit overtop nearly any drain.

27. The cup holder designed to work with larger bottles
If the cupholders in your car are too narrow to fit a reusable water bottle, you might want to consider this smart cup holder.

And with a glossy charcoal finish, it blends seamlessly into your vehicle’s interior.

And unlike some garlic gadgets, this one keeps your hands clean from that sticky juice.
37. These compression socks with extra arch support
Even though these socks are lightweight and breathable, the compressive fabric they’re made from gives your arches extra support that other socks are lacking.
