Hi Sarah,

Welcome to Nikonians!

For less than $100.00 the choice of lenses with VR is quite limited.
While you should be able to find another 18-55mm VR for that price, even third party zooms that are faster and have VC or OS will be few and far between.
You should be able to find a AF 50mm f/1.8D prime which is 3 1/3rd stops faster than your 18-55mm at 50mm. Another option is the 35mm f/1.8G AF-S though I suspect you won't find one in your price range unless you get very lucky. While neither lens has VR, the significantly faster aperture will allow you to use a shutter speed over 8 times faster than possible with your 18-55mm.

Best Regards,
Marty
