What is the most useful & inexpensive piece of kit you've ever bought?

2 Black plastic funnels which I taped to each of my underwater lights. I got them from a car spares shop for about $2 each and they make a world of difference to the lighting effect.
They turn my lights into spotlights meaning you can focus on certain details of an image and leave everything else backed out. A great example is an actor on a stage under a spotlight; it’s the same effect.
The technical term is a light “snoot”. You can of course buy commercially available snoots for a couple hundred bucks or something, but a $2 funnel works just as well!
