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 do have one thing he doesn't – Canadian citizenship!

And as a tiny Canadian, I see it as my job, nay, my patriotic duty to show you guys some cool internet doodads and thingamajigs that you WON'T have to mentally convert into Canadian dollars. And don't fret! You won't have to worry about that sell-an-organ-to-pay-for-the-shipping or "not available in your country" garbage.

Now that all those polite introductions are outta the way – let's get to it! 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 and clever quips! It'll be like a car crash that you just can't stop watching for some reason. Or maybe you’ll scroll past them really quickly! Either way, thanks for visiting!
