Things you can get for $1 or less from AliExpress – Vol. 1

AliExpress is pretty well-known for the abundance of awesomely inexpensive products. I'm sure we all at least once bought something only because it was dirt cheap, just to see what it'll be like – I know I have (here is an unboxing video, where I show the things that I bought for $1 or less). If you are new to AliExpress, check out How To Shop on AliExpress. The rest – please keep reading.

And while there still are countries, where people are making less than $5 a day, most of us would consider anything that costs <$1 practically free.

So here are some of the cheapest yet (somewhat) useful things you can but on AliExpress.

Things you can get for $1 or less


The cheapest products from AliExpress

Glow-in-dark Earphones


Price: $1.17

These crappy earphones would probably cost $7-12 at stores. The quality won't be the best, of course, but you won't be paying as much for them, and keep them for emergencies, since earphones get lost all the time.

Plus, they glow in dark.

      Thank you! Most of the stuff in this list is fairly solid. I have the braided cable, and it's amazing. I also have pins, the quality is good too. Socks and pendants can't be too bad. I am not sure what the USB card reader will be like, but it is so cheap you can buy a few just in case (or just buy a more expensive one if you really need one). I think both kitchen accessories and the OTG adapter looks legit too, but I had no first-hand experience with them.

      Hi Binod, there are no AliExpress stores in India. The beauty of this website is that the items are so cheap for the reason of low overheads. So if there was a store, the goods would cost more. I buy so much stuff from there every month, and it takes a few weeks to arrive. But I don't mind waiting, because the saving are SO substantial!
