What item in your bicycle touring bag that's under $10 that you

A $10 bill  ;D . That way I can hopefully buy what I need.  Realistically, there is nothing that I MUST have but a lot of things I should have. 

Tear Aid patches, sunscreen, AA batteries, etc. are all pretty essential for me and cost under $10.

Good quality tweezers.  For first aid, grooming and removing fine steel wire (from truck tire carcasses) from your tires.

Way over budget ($30): Swiss Army knife.  Opens cans and bottles (and wine bottles, apparently), cuts tough meat and tent cords or clothesline, tweezers, and scissors to trim fingernails and open recalcitrant energy bar packages.

Forgot to add, brightly colored so you have a chance to find it when you drop it in grass or leaves.

+1.  A kindle or even the phone if you really want to save weight is less than a book but I do prefer the feel of a real book.

Gee that's tough, but I guess I would have to go with one days worth of food.

If you can't live without it, it doesn't matter what it costs.
