Everyone is praising weighted blankets for their health benefits, like aiding with anxiety, restless legs, insomnia, and more. While you think, "I want to try it," it's hard to validate buying one for $200 just to test it out and see if you like it. Luckily there are a handful of retailers that are selling these self-care products for under $100.
