Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50?

A shower step, laser scissors, and some terrible advice: How far can *you* get without buying something?

Welcome to another edition of “Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50?”

I am your host, Jeff. The game is simple. Try to make it through this entire post without buying something. The list may seem like it’s random, but it’s not.

Don’t plan to buy anything? That’s OK! Stay and enjoy my groanworthy jokes! I italicize each pun for maximum cringe.

Come up with a better pun? Post in the comments! I DO READ ALL THE COMMENTS!


1. This collar and tie to make any pet look important.

2. This bedside caddy to hold all your books and snacks.

3. These bento lunch boxes that have configurable compartments.

4. This desk lamp that's made of wood and iron.

5. These very fine-point pens that will let you fill in all those small details.

6. These ceramic eggs for your mini succulents.

7. This quick-drying silicone mat that can fold up to save space.

8. This shower step that makes it easier to get the right angle for shaving.

9. This weird container that bends around your odd-shaped sandwiches.

10. This knork (a knife and fork combination).

11. This illustrated book of just awful advice.

12. This rocket engine pour-over brewer because it's the fuel we all need.

13. These laser-guided scissors that will never mislead you.

14. This rainbow keyboard cover that's bright as hell!

15. This waxed canvas lunch tote that's kinda ridiculous, but also kinda cool.

16. This squirrel feeder that will probably make them self-conscious.

17. This water bottle with a storage compartment to keep your cards and keys in.

Aaaand that’s about it for this week. Maybe looking for more? There’s always last week's edition.
