    32 Cool And Random Things You Can Probably Afford

    Bob Ross bandaids, a Jeopardy activity book, everything bagel seasoning, and 29 other things to make you say, "Ugh thanks BuzzFeed, now I NEED THIS!"

    1. A subscription to a premium cable channel on Amazon Video like HBO, Starz, Showtime, etc. so you can catch up on your favorite eps before the new season starts (looking at you, Game of Thrones) or get hooked on that show your friends can't stop talking about.

    2. An ice cream cozy so you can keep your favorite flavor frozen far longer — but keep your fingers from turning into icicles.

    3. Or if you *must* share, a stainless steel, dishwasher safe ice cream scoop with a ~chiseled edge~ and ergonomic grip to make dishing up a sundae feel less like arm day at the gym.

    4. How to Raise A Plant and Make It Love You Back, a *pretty* guide to keeping your green friends alive (and actually thriving), with tips on how to choose plants, where to keep them, and how to care for them.

    5. A taco-print duffel bag that'll ensure strangers give you the hottest tips on where to get the beeeeest al pastor when you're traveling or even just leaving the gym.

    8. A Darth Vader clapper so you can use the force to control your electronics — by which I mean clap your hands to turn 'em on and off.

    9. A super-chill penguin you can fill with baking soda to keep your fridge odor-free and fresh. It's cuter *and* takes up less space than a box of baking soda.
