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

I am your host, Jeff. I’m back for this week! 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.
