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

I'm your host, Sarah. I, unfortunately, am not the puntastic Jeff, but I'm Canadian so I understand all those sell-an-organ-to-pay-for-the-shipping or "not available in your country" garbage.

So I've done all the hard work and found some internet doodads and thingamajigs that you WON'T have to mentally convert into Canadian dollars.

You know the game: Try to make it through this ENTIRE POST without buying something. Don't wanna buy anything? That's groovy! Stay for my cringeworthy attempts at making puns or try your best to scroll right past 'em! I won't be offended.
