The best of the cheapest thing

What was the one cheapest electronic item that became surprisingly the best of all things you have ever owned?

Mine was the basic Logitech keyboard I bought at Office Depot for $11. Functionality wise it was much better than my other much more expensive keyboards.



SoCal for now.

The remote for my truck's door was free.
Hasn't failed, yet. :-)


non-electronic would be the winged corkscrew

light bulbs - no more stubbed toes

Well - one of my favorites was a Black & Decker mini chopper my mom picked up for me last year for $10 at Kohls

I am much more inclined to make big batches of chili, tuna salad and other things that require a lot of onion chopping.
Just peel and quarter them and this gadget chops them in seconds and a quick rinse and it's clean.

My first multi-GB, less than $10 shipped, flash drive. I can keep all my class powerpoints on 1 drive--nice.

do you cook 5 turkeys per year? one for Thanksgiving, one for Christmas, but the other 3?

I rarely cook a turkey unless there is a Holiday. too much trouble for me.

Those are great to pick up for cutting foam rubber too.
