A few restrictions:
- You may define "cheap" however you'd like, but be prepared to explain why. You should take into account both the item's absolute price, and price relative to similar things that perform the same function.
- These things must be "Good," if not "Great." Not merely "Good Enough."
- These things must be readily available new or used. Nothing that was cheap back in the day, but impossible to find now.
- I'll count things that are "average priced," but save the owner money by being significantly more durable than their alternatives. Truly exceptional cases only, please.

this question in MetaTalk last week.
This post was deleted for the following reason: In the MeTa thread people pointed to the 4-5 times this question has been asked before. If this isn't a substantial variant on that one and you're aware of the other ones, it's pretty much a solid double unless I am missing something. -- jessamyn
