Here's what to know about for Prime Day 2018.

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

The game is simple. Try to make it through this entire post without going over $50 in purchases.

This time around the game is different because Prime Day is here — and I love a good deal as much as anyone. I'll be sifting through the metric fuck-ton of stuff on sale to find things I think are pretty cool.

Good luck and have fun!

Note: To get these deals you have to be a Prime member, so if you aren't already, sign up for a free 30-day trial here.

ALSO like everything else on Amazon, all Prime Day deals are limited quantity and subject to rapid change. So act quick! I'll be doing my best to keep this post updated.
