Online shopping has gotten a little crazy hasn't it?
We all love the convenience of shopping online, but lately it seems like our favorite online retailers don't have our best interests in mind.
How can 1 Dollar Things help?
We show you products from your favorite retailers without the ads, pressure, upsells and recommendations. You don't log in to 1 Dollar Things, so we don't know anything about you. If we can improve your experience by tracking your preferences, we'll let you know first and save it in a simple cookie. Nothing sneaky here. This allows you to think clearly as you shop. Once you have made a decision, you can go on to make a purchase with the retailer as usual. We aim to protect you from Dark Patterns.
We will also try to educate you about how online shopping works behind the scenes so that you can shop safely once you leave here and venture out into the wild wild web.
1 Dollar Things started with the goal of creating a great bargain hunting experience online. We quickly learned that there is something off about the way that online shopping works and wanted to do something about it. We are inspired by the work of the Center for Humane Technology and want to do our part to elevate you rather than try to sneak our way into your purse or wallet. We certainly don't want to demand any more of your attention than we deserve.
Etsy is your go to place for hand-made products. Since makers on Etsy do it for the love and not the money, you can find all sorts of low cost unique items. You'd be surprised by what you can find for a few dollars on Etsy
