5 Things to Do with $100

I was inspired to write this post by Dollar Shave Club. All opinions are mine, and I have received no money or compensation for anything I write.

I literally have shaving irritation from my current razor as I speak, so I am in need of a new razor. Have you guys tried DSC?

They are traditionally for men, but I know lots of ladies are using them, too. For how much I spend on razor blade refills, it’s a good deal. They start at $1 a month and go up to $9 a month. According to them, they can save you $100 by switching to DSC.

Which brings me to my next point… what I would do with 100 extra bucks..

I may have already done some of these things, because I don’t seem to have any extra 100 bucks laying around.

#1 – Rent a Kayak
Kayak rentals are usually cheap, or you can team up and rent one canoe instead. For ultimate laziness, you can do what we did and take a tube, which requires virtually no arm use. Any way you choose, floating down a river is a fun place to be.

#2 – Buy the Harry Potter Box Set
Rereading Harry Potter would be fantastic out of this set. I have never given in and bought a new one (my old set is irretrievable). It even comes in a little trunk. Our apartment is tiny, but I could make room.

#3 – Splurge on a New Pair of Shoes
I am liking this pair of J. Crew Factory Marley ballet flats, because I could always use more variety of flats for work.

#4 – Go Ziplining
I’ve only done this once, and while I was terrified at first (then during…and peed myself after.. JK), it was a lot of fun. I think they have this anywhere there are trees?? We have a company called Go Ape close to us, but we haven’t tried that one yet.
#5 – Go See a Football Game
If you are like me, and often prefer to watch people do crazy shit, you could go see a game. Football and hockey are my favorite to see live. And you know football season is about to get CRAZY (LET’S GO, GAMECOCKS!!).
Despite living near Philly, the only games I keep up with are my Cocks!! I wish I could make it to a game, maybe one year. I would go to see almost any team, though. I love hanging out in a tiny seat eating fries (CRAB FRIES, please!), watching the other fans, & yelling incoherently.
What can you do with $100?
Have you tried Dollar Shave Club?
What is your go to snack for live games?

  1. I love watching football live, its been a couple years before i went to one though! i have never been to a hockey game, heck i dont even think i have seen one on tv. my go to snack.. beer! lol jk. i am not really sure 🙂
    we use DSC at home and we love it! i totally use the same razors as my husband and they work perfectly.


  2. OMG, that Harry Potter set is awesome! Mentally preparing my justification for acquiring more junk for our home. 😛 Also, I don't have a good solution for razors. Currently I just buy travel ones and just chuck the old one when it gets dull, but it seems so wasteful! And I probably spend more time shaving with a dull razor than not. Ugh.


  3. We were just talking about renting a kayak this weekend! Did you go to USC or just a Gamecock fan? My family and I are from Charleston and my dad is a HUGE Gamecock fan. We moved to VA when I was 10 though and I'm a Hokie so VT is my team 🙂
