    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!
