Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50?

Water brush pens, a waterproof notepad, and a sneaky bottle safe: How far can *you* get without buying something?

Posted on

It's now 2017 and WOW have I written a lot of terrible puns!

And I apologize. In the spirit of end-of-the-year recaps, I've decided to do the same! I'll be compiling a little bit from each post I've written to make one super post! This one! Read on as your hands tremble and form fists of rage with each successive pun. Sweat pours down your brow as you mutter under your breath about how this country is going straight to the dogs and this post is the exact reason why.

I have truly enjoyed reading all your comments about how awful my puns are and I look forward to making you upset in 2017!

1. You know what’s just not cool? Well, find out with an infrared thermometer.


2. A fork/spoon combo so you can eat cereal and steak on the same plate.,

The sides are tapered so you can cut through harder foods like rocks and chalk. Or whatever the fork you want to eat.

Price: $4

3. Water brush pens to make using watercolors more manageable.

5. The craziest way to work out your arms (a gyro exerciser).,

Alright I know it looks like a product you would see on TV, but it’s legit. I own one of these. You use your wrist and forearm to keep the gyroscope inside going. The faster it spins, the more resistance it generates. It’s quite addicting, and you can use it with one hand. So I’ll be just reading on my phone with one hand and mindlessly working out the other.

Price: $20


10. A gravity-defying wine bottle holder that'll make your guests nod with approval.

11. A camera mount to help you take time-lapse video or panoramic shots.


14. A nifty travel organizer that folds into a triangle.


21. A flexible tablet stand so you don’t have to hold a damn thing on your day off.


23. A Thor hammer night light for the aspiring hero.

24. A versatile neck/head/eye pillow to help you sleep in any configuration.


27. A cup holder that will let you carry open drinks without spilling.


33. A FURminator to reduce the amount of hair your cat sheds.


35. A spice container that has a slick flip-top cover.

36. A knife block that lets you slide the blade in in any orientation.


38. A lotus flower container that will hold your cotton swab–sized items.

That's all for this week! I hope you enjoyed reliving all those wonderful puns. You can always check out last week's edition here.
