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. Crab fries are THE BOMB. So freaking good. I would go see a game and/or buy shoes. I need some boots. Or maybe have a pamper day- haircut/mani/pedi. Mmmm that would be awesome.


  3. 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.


  4. 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 🙂
