Well, I'm not much for the TL8+ magic items. When I run tech+magic games I usually use an alternate magic system like a variation of the old Mage the Assention magic system that was converted to GURPS back in 3E.

As for the ultra-cheap magic item set, there are quite a few in my original list, but I have just looked through the Magic book a bit more, and expanding from my typical "elemental+meta+enchantment magic only" approach. Here's some of the list I've been working on...

Item Name: Rope End
Description: A 1 yard rope with a single chain link at the end allowing it to be tied to another longer rope or to be attatched to a chain. Upon command this rope will tie itself and untie itself. This is often used to allow climbers to untie a rope after they climb down it.
Materials Cost: 1 yard of rope (1/2" dia., 1600 lb) $1, 0.21 lbs.
Enchantments: Fasten (Tie) - 90 mana + Fasten (Untie) - 90 mana.
Notes: Enchanted twice with Fasten. Once to allow it to tie itself, and once to allow it to untie itself.
Price: $5941 / $181

Description: This small waterproof sack holds up to 5 lbs of food and keeps any organic material that can fit within from spoiling, drying out, etc. Typically used in bulk by salors to hold fruites during long voyages to avoid scurvy. Advanturers will no doubt find other uses for such an item.
