UNDER $5: I mentioned solar lights last week and I think it is a complete waste to spend more than a dollar on them when these in the top photo are available at the Dollar Tree in multiple colors. I've had the same grouping for three years now and ALL of them still work!
UNDER $50: Ikea is constantly developing modern, unique pieces at incredibly reasonable prices and this metal coffee table on wheels would be the perfect accent piece in any New York city apartment (or anywhere, for that matter). At $49 it's hard to beat and comes in this cool blue, red, white and stainless steel.
UNDER $500: Years ago I found this cool counter top dishwasher (last photo) for a tight Manhattan apartment. They were fairly new to the market and quite expensive, and now they're available everywhere from walmart to Best Buy. At $375 I love this model by Danby that hooks up to any kitchen sink with ease and promises to wash up to six place settings at a time. If you're pressed for space or need an extra dishwasher near your outdoor cooking area, this is pretty cool!
UNDER $15,000: Sure this is a stretch for most budgets, but the kitchen photo in the middle is actually an 80 square foot cabin on wheels thanks to www.tumbleweedhouses.com who design mobile self-contained cabins from 50 to 130 square feet. Who needs to build a new one when you can buy one of these, pull it to your favorite destination and just leave it?
