2. Celebrity stylist award-winning Harry Josh's hair dryers usually sell for $249 alone because they're so high-quality. Today, however, you can buy it and an entire volumizing styling kit -- containing shampoo, conditioner, and spray -- for $189, saving yourself $107 altogether. According to Allure, this is "the pastel-colored Rolls-Royce of the blow-dryer world," offering at-home blowouts for cheap. It's extremely well-reviewed, drying hair quickly while even making it sleek if you turn on the ion option. The Cut also love it, arguing it's one of 2018's best blow dryers.

5. With the release of the latest iPad Pro this past week, you can't help but feel like Apple upgrades its products every three seconds. That means a lot of us probably have old MacBooks, iPhones, and more just lying around, which is a waste of money. Check out the likes of Gazelle and NextWorth, which will give you a check in exchange for these products. Alternatively, try to trade these in so you can get some money towards a new Apple product. You can check Apple's trade-in program here or Best Buy's here. I'd recommend going to both to see which retailer will give you more. If your model is too old and you can't use any of the above options, you can sell them on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace, even those devices that may be broken! While you won't get a ton of money for these, a lot of people like to use the working parts from them.
