There’s More Than Meets the Eye in This Mesh Beach Tote Bag

A mesh beach bag? Brilliant! No more lugging half the beach home with you. But this Mesh Beach Tote Bag has a few more tricks up its sleeve. First, it zips, which is huge when it comes to tote bags. AND it has a separate (not see through) zippered front pocket. Next, it comes with a handy fold-up waterproof mat that’s honest-to-goodness big enough to accommodate a couple of grown adults. And finally, it has an insulated cooler on the bottom that can hold up to two six packs!! Seriously, this is the one beach bag to rule them all.

A Shock Watch That Trains You To Wake Up On Time

  via : Amazon  

If you’re one of those people who can never seem to wake up on time, let me introduce you to the Pavlok shock watch. It trains you to wake up on time by quietly beeping and vibrating, then eventually giving you a light shock to wake you up. Over time you’ll learn to wake up during the beeping/vibrations in order to avoid the shock, and you can adjust the shock strength by connecting it to your smartphone.

And I’ve been recommending them to everyone ever since.

A Nature-Themed Tee For Those Of Us Who Hate People

  via : Amazon  

Do you hate people in a general, non-aggressive sort of way? Then grab this tee and let everybody know no matter where you are. I used to wear mine all the time until I realized that I also I hate nature and camping. That’s okay though, because it’s soft, slouchy, ultra-comfortable, and if there’s one thing I love more than I hate people, it’s being a hypocrite. Also, it’s only $17 — it wouldn’t kill you to skip lunch for a day in favor of this shirt, would it?
