    Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50?

    An herb preserver, beetle wing earrings, and Go-Gurt for cats. How far can *you* get without buying something?

    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 buying something.

    Don’t plan to buy anything? That’s OK! Stay and enjoy my groanworthy jokes! I italicize each pun for maximum cringe, AND BECAUSE I WOULD REALLY HATE IT IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS GETTING AT. If we had the ability to highlight words at BuzzFeed, I would.

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