Favorite Kitchen Bargain

I love unusual kitchen bargains! I realized that my 2 favorite bargains of late were very different but both great:
1) a copy of "The Food Chronology" - a fascinating food timeline book that I picked up at the library for $2
2) A sombrero-shaped chip and dip set that plays the Mexican Hat Dance when you press a button. It was $1 at a garage sale. It's incredibly tacky but always makes me smile.

What bargains have you gotten that have made your cooking life more fun or interesting?
