Semi-useful Amazon Filler Items (if you want to get free shipping)

If you like to shop at Amazon and get free shipping (without signing up for Prime), your orders of items sold or fulfilled by itself (as opposed to third-party sellers doing business there) must be $25 or more. Often times if you are buying just one item (eg one photography book, one educational DVD), you may be a couple of dollars short of the $25 mark. This post rounds up some potentially semi-useful items that cost just a few dollars. Please note prices and availability of these items vary and change over time, which is why we don't include prices below. This post will grow over time as we add more semi-useful items as we find them. If you want to bookmark this page or revisit at a later time, here is the permalink.
