Many people rely on cloud storage these days, which is often a great experience, until it's not. If you don't have an internet connection, or don't want to have to log into an app to get your data, then you'll want to have local copies of the files. Flash drives have been around for quite some time, and they've dropped in price so much over the past few years. Right now, Amazon has the 128GB SanDisk Ultra Flair USB 3.0 flash drive (opens in new tab) on sale for just $19.49, which is about $4 less than it normally sells for. This puts it within a few cents of its all-time low price.
