Welcome to another edition of Can You Get Through This Post Without Spending $50!

I am your host, Jeff. The game is simple. Try to make it through this entire post without buying something. The list may seem like it is random, but I assure you, it's not. Don't plan to buy anything? That's OK! Stay and enjoy my lame jokes! GOOD LUCK, ALL!

1. The Chromecast ($35), because it's one of the best media devices everyone can buy right now.

Google Store

Seriously. Check out our review of it. It's one of the best things I've bought.

Find one here.

2. These gummy vitamins ($8) taste really fucking good.


These things taste wayyy better than other gummy candies I've had. How did they pull off making something so delicious that's also good for you?

Get them here.

3. This cheap but good 18-piece dinnerware set ($30) dishes out value.

This works well for a college student's budget — it's worth having a solid set of dishes where you won't be too sad if one breaks.

Get it here.

4. These super-thin reading glasses ($20 to $23) are small enough to fit into a wallet.
ThinOptics / Amazon

These are quite the spectacle.

Get them here.

5. Stay on the cutting edge with this knife sharpener ($6).


Real talk: It's actually much safer to cook with a sharp knife than a dull one. The knife behaves predictably and will require less force to cut through things.

Get it here.

6. This attractive magnetic phone charger ($15) easily connects your phone to power.

Smart-Rhino / Amazon
Sojitek / Amazon

It's also available for those who have Micro-USB ports.

Get the Lightning version here.

7. Earhoox ($10) stop your EarPods from falling out of your ears for the last fucking time.

Earhoox / Amazon

They come in five different colors and are not actually made of hooks.

Get them here.

8. This LED Desk Lamp ($33) has touch-sensitive controls and a USB port to charge your devices.

LAMPAT / Amazon
LAMPAT / Amazon

I never thought I would be excited about a lamp. This must be what getting old feels like.

Get it here.

9. This portable battery bank ($17) is waterproof — so you can shower while charging your gadgets.

Unifun / Amazon

For the record, if you can think of a REAL scenario where you absolutely need to charge your devices while showering I would like to hear about it. Don't do it.

This is certified IP66, which means it is "dust tight" and protected against water projected from a nozzle.

Get it here.

10. This hella comfortable pillow ($45) that will keep your head cool in the summer.

Invest in a good pillow. Sleep is fucking important.

Get it here.

11. This quadcopter drone ($44) will make your neighbors uncomfortable.

SYMA / Amazon

I had no idea you could get a decent drone for under $50. It even has a camera so you can take video. But I won't drone on about it. Check it out.

Get it here.
