If we had $100 to spend, what would we buy? Answers to this question won't just vary from person to person, they'll also vary from moment to moment — or, in the case of this story, month to month. On occasions when our finances afford us the extra $$$ that can be spared on non-essentials, the purchases we choose to make with it are both specific and dynamic. This is why our roundup of R29's Shopping team's MVPs isn't a guide to what you should deem worthy of spending a Benjamin (or under) on, it's just a shared list of items that enriched our day-to-day in some type of way. All we hope is that, maybe, one or two can do the same for you.
Ahead, behold the under-$100 products we actually bought, used, came to rely on, and LOVE over the past 30+ days: from a $30 Target lamp that low-key looks expensive to Japanese loose leaf green tea, the essential transitional-weather cardigan, and a devastatingly chic charging pad for your gadgets. Scroll on to web-window shop, feel seen, inspired, fatigued, or just connected across all the noise. Oh, and please don't be shy in the comment sections below — we thrive on hearing about the gems you've carted for under one hundo that have made these weird times feel just a smidge sunnier.
