So you’re at sitting at home. Payday isn’t for another week, but you’ve got the insatiable urge to spend some money. Check your pocket. Boom. You’ve got one crisp, violet 10 dollar leaf of lettuce just sitting there waiting to get spent. But how do you spend it? Well, the 404 Not Found Department of Economics has got you covered.
Here are the best ways to burn through $10, courtesy of the internet.
Some people are just the worst. The boss that schedules you in on Christmas Eve, the neighbour that won’t let you use their wifi, the dentist who only has banana and black licorice as flavours for fluoride. It can be pretty frustrating dealing with these folks, but luckily there’s a solution. For $9.99, you can ship your enemies glitter. That’s right. This company sends a mysterious package to your target of choice and when they open it up, the contents explode (gently) all over their office/home/washroom. Glitter-bomb! Best part is that it’s all anonymous and you can even include a personal touch of mystery by having the company include a custom-written note shipped along with the glitter. Passive-aggression has never been better.
Now you can ship your friends bacon too! (It’s more expensive though. Bacon is high class.)
Doing stuff is hard and takes a lot of time. Paying a stranger to do it is way more satisfying. That’s why Fiverr exists. It’s a website that allows creative-types to post their services for the low price of $5. There are a massive amount of services/products to choose from. You can find premium contributions from experienced artists, marketers, animators, audio engineers and other countless kinds of creators. The great thing about Fiverr is its versatility. When a project feels like it’s missing something, get a professional to solve all of your problems! Plus, the services are only 5 bucks. So you could buy two if you want. Don’t use this for school though. Cheaters are lame.
Also, how cool would it be to have Melmo endorse your product?
Hilarious, right? Have any photo you want plastered on a mug. Get creative here. A mug design is incredibly important. Chances are, it’s one of the first things you see everyday. Throw something encouraging (like a dog) on this bad boy to set you up for your day the right way. Or maybe you go with a picture of something you don’t like so much, (like a cat) to remind you of why you need this coffee so badly in the first place. There are actually countless websites to get these custom mugs done, but Walmart does it for $9, which isn’t a bad deal. Those guys are just rolling back prices every day.
Here’s an example of a beautiful mug, that can be yours, if you so desire.
Welcome to a new world. A world where you know how to spend that $10. Just remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Make 404 Not Found proud.
