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. This series should actually be called, "Jeff's Favorite Things." But I don't have that big of an ego.

Don't plan to buy anything? That's OK! Stay and enjoy my lame jokes! GOOD LUCK, ALL!
