    Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50?

    A hairy swimsuit, Himalayan salt shot glasses, and cube-shaped fidget spinners. 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, EVEN THE COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE WHO SERIOUSLY HATE ON THIS POST! And it's ok. I write this series to have fun and don't take it personally. But if you must criticize, at least come up with something better than "I can't spend $50 if I don't have $50." It's gettin' real old, and I know that you commenters out there can come up with something better. Preferably in pun form.
