I usually just search for "x earbuds under $x that sound amazing" type listicles. I'd like a bluetooth pair for the gym and a wired pair for sedentary activities.

Here ya go: TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

I work in a warehouse with loud fan noise in the background, and those really do a good job of blocking out the drone while allowing me to still hear people talk.

More importantly, they have really good sound quality. Bass is surprisingly punchy considering how tiny earbuds are, but not excessive.

Best part? Only $40 with the coupon on Amazon. Some people say that they're better than $200+ Bose earbuds.

I have a previous model of TaoTronics noise cancelling earbuds. Good value for money, highly recommended.

I will check them out. I actually have a different pair of TaoTronics, which are fine but I don't love the fit.

On the prepping side of things, you can get packs of 50 tea light candles for about 5 bucks. Having several packs of those stashed is a good idea for power outages or more severe emergencies. You can even cook with them if you have to. Each one will burn for about 4 hours.

Tea lights are also a nice, cheap way of making a nice atmosphere. I love candles, scented or just simple tea lights.

I have a Sawyer water filter that I use when I go backpacking. You can get a life straw for about $20, or a 1 litre size for about $40 -$50. The straw version if fairly inconvenient to use, so spring for the litre size. If you are going to use it a lot, a larger size might make sense. Doubles as a prep.

Pill cutter - a little plastic device that fits in the palm of your hand - costs about $3 at the pharmacy. Allows you to easily cut a pill in half, and then quarters. Very useful for reducing dosages, especially if you operate outside of the system.
