28 Clever, useful and funny things from AliExpress for LESS THAN $5

You are driving down a beautiful and remote highway in Nevada. It does not have any landmarks, and you do not have a destination. Just miles and miles of sand, low growing plants and more sand.

The highway takes a sharp turn, and you enter a little town. You are running low on gas, and it is getting dark, so you decide to drive around to look for a gas station, and perhaps a hotel.

The town appears to be empty, and all the windows are boarded up. At the end of a road find an old house. “What the heck”, you decide to yourself, “I should check it out”. Besides, this is the only house that you can enter without removing the boards from windows.

Inside the house appears to be empty. The dust is the only thing that stayed. All the doors are taken off, except one. Of course, now that your interest is peaking, you decide to enter it. Inside the room is a table with a wallet on it. You open the wallet, and it has a fresh, untouched crispy $5 bill in it, and it looks like it has just been printed.

You turn around, and there is a laptop on the floor, with AliExpress open in the new tab.

“The start have aligned” – you think to yourself, even though you don't believe in astrology. Now that your balance has a positive $5 on it, you have to spend it.

And here are some sweet product ideas.

AUTOMATIC DOOR SHUTTER

Price: $5.49

This handy device attaches to the doorframe, and slowly closes the door after it is opened. The mechanism is mechanical, and does not require the use of batteries.

Because closing the door behind yourself is for peasants.

DEBIT/CREDIT CARD WRAPS

Price: $1.99

If your bank, like most of the banks, does not allow you to customize your cards, this is for you.

These credit/debit card wraps make a regular boring card into a work of art, or into a witty commentary on the political or economic issues.

Price: $2.85

This is a tiny lamp. It looks like a lamp for ants, but it works like a regular lamp.

Everyone already has Airpods, so why not make them a little more unique?

SMARTPHONE RING HOLDER / SIDE STAND

Price: $1.00

You can use it to hold your phone, and then the table can also use it to hold your phone.

HARMONICA

Price: $3.67

Hopefully, you will spend your life without going to prison, unless you count buying products at these prices, because it is basically a steal of a deal!

But in case you want to feel what it's like to live in Southern states in 1930's, here is a little harmonica.

These single-use soap sheets are awesome. Super-compact, and useful for camping and travelling.

Since they're sheets, they're TSA-compliant (you can put them in your carry-on). Great for hand-washing hands and clothes in the hotel sink.

YELLOW-TINTED GLASSES

Price: $1.19

As I mentioned before (and as you probably noticed yourself), the summer is coming!

There are a lot of sunglasses on AliExpress, but these ones have been especially popular in the last quarter.

A pendant that has a piece of the sky in it, and it glows in dark. Nothing much needs to be said.

EARRINGS

Price: $1.49+

A lot of them have 3 earring sets per lot for ~$2.50 (that's like $0.83 per pair!)

NOSE HAIR TRIMMER

Price: $3.44

While some of the nasal hair are manually removed by picking your nose (your FBI agent sees it all!), the more efficient way of doing it is with a nasal hair trimmer.

CHICKEN HELMET

Price: $2.42

What you've heard is true: chickens can be very clumsy. But this helmet is not for the faint-hearted ones – on the contrary!

This product has been designed to protect the engine eternal of every chicken's construction: its head. Despite the fact that they can live without a head for up to 18 months (RIP, Miracle Mike), the owners of this chicken helmet are aiming for a higher number.

This helmet can also fit an adventurous hamster.
