I’ve Purchased These 8 Under-$6 Items on Temu and Have No Regrets
Are you familiar with Temu? I wasn’t until very recently (you may remember their Super Bowl commercial back in February), but now I can’t get enough of this shopping destination. Similar to Amazon, in that you truly can find a bit of everything, prices on Temu are ultra-budget-friendly, with many items coming in at under $3. Whether you’re in the market for new kitchenware, decor, clothing, cleaning supplies, or something else entirely, you’ll want to take a spin through this app or search on site.
Unlike Amazon, Temu doesn’t offer rapid-fire shipping. Most orders take a few weeks to arrive, if not longer. However, if you’re not in a major rush and are looking to score some amazing deals on home items, check out eight of my favorite Temu purchases that I’ve made so far. I’ve found the inventory to be great when it comes to stylish basics for entertaining, organizing, and corralling the many things I have on hand at home, but I’ve yet to really find a ton of decor on the site that resonates with me (although they do have their own $8 version of H&M’s trendy donut vase).
Wall Mounted Bathroom Shelf, $3.48
I’m always experimenting with new skincare products, and my existing shower organizer was beginning to get a bit too cramped as a result. I ordered a couple of these stick-on shelves and can now sort all of my body washes, shampoos, and scrubs by category, which makes me feel like I have my life together every time I rinse off! These are also a great solution for roommates or siblings who share the same bathroom; assign each person using the bathroom their own shelf to keep toiletries and the like separate and organized.
Golden Long Coffee Stirring Small Round Spoon, $1.38 for 4 pieces
If you’re like me and are trying to romanticize the art of making your own coffee at home, you’ll want to add these golden stirring spoons to your Temu cart. They look much more luxe than your typical utensil. I keep mine in a jar next to my Nespresso machine and find that they add a sophisticated touch of shine to my countertop.
I love anything with a ribbed or fluted design, so, of course, this little clear box was calling my name the minute I saw it. While designed to be used for cotton swabs, I find it also comes in handy for holding hair ties, cotton rounds, loose change, you name it. You’re going to want a couple of these.
I can never have too many little pouches like these; they’re perfect for housing everyday makeup or throwing into a tote bag when I travel. I grabbed this zippered model with a checkerboard pattern in two different colors and love how cute it looks on my bathroom shelf.
File this one under something you didn’t know you needed, but once you get it you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. This silicone pasta strainer clips onto your pot and makes it easy to pour out excess water from fresh pasta quickly without any splashing.
If you’re like me and like to keep a reusable bag in each of your go-to purses and totes, you’ll want to stock up on a few of these patterned cuties. They’re great to have on hand for impromptu grocery trips, library runs, and, my personal favorite, vintage shopping at the flea market on the weekend.
There’s something just so chic about double-walled glass mugs. They’re so elegant without even trying, and having a few on hand for when company comes over makes me feel like a *real adult.* Take this as your sign to part with your chipped souvenir mug from that random work conference once and for all, and order a matching set of 4 for under $17.
Even if you don’t have space for a vanity table, you might want to set out your makeup or evening skincare products so that you know exactly what you have on hand and remember to actually use those expensive lotions and potions. A petite organizer, like this one, is excellent for small spaces and actually holds a lot of tiny items; the tiered shelves and pull-out drawers are deceptively roomy.
