Here’s All The Crap Your Favorite PGP Writers Bought On Prime Day

Here’s All The Crap Your Favorite PGP Writers Bought On Prime Day

Christmas in July has come and gone and our credit cards are all a little worse for the wear. Today is the day that the anxiety sets in about how much money we all spend on Prime Day and we begin to wonder if all of the stuff we bought was really worth it. But instead of making that determination ourselves, my PGP brethren and I have decided to put our Prime Day purchases up for the judgment of our dear readers.

Life of A Reilly

Crockpot

My snap judgment: Because nothing screams single dude more than a machine you throw a bunch of stuff in to create a meal. Also, I feel sad for you because this is all you bought.

Quinn Truflais

Food Saver Vacuum Sealer

Memory Foam Contour Pillow Hypoallergenic Neck Pillow

SnoreCare Premium Nose Vents

Dry Shampoo

My snap judgment: A prolific snorer who doesn’t wash her hair on the regular? How are you still single?! But then again, you are going to have a shitload of vacuum-sealed food to get through the impending apocalypse, so maybe you’re a catch after all.

Kyle Bandujo

Paw Patrol Feeding Set

Tiny Footprint Coffee Organic Cold Press Elixir

Callaway Hex Bite Golf Balls

Odor Absorbing Activated Charcoal Shoe Insoles

My snap judgment: More of a judgment for Amazon than for my friend Kyle – why are you calling the Paw Patrol plate and silverware a “feeding set”? Are toddlers akin to animals? I mean, they sort of are, but still.

Drunk Not In Love

23andMe DNA Test

My snap judgment: The message I got telling me about this purchase really sums it up: “Boyfriend and I got these on sale for $100 each to find out who is genetically superior. We are what’s wrong with our generation.” Yup, you are.

JR Hickey

The Departed

My snap judgment: Ugh. Of course you did.

Whatever Lola Wants

Riviera Sun Harem Jumpsuit

Portable MP3 / MP4 Player

Compact Fabric Steamer

My snap judgment: Now, Lola told me the ‘Merica outfit is for a drinking pants pageant and the MP3 is for a tubing trip this weekend and that it will likely meet a watery death before the end of the trip. So basically, she’s fun AND practical…and not wrinkled.

Ben Jammin

Bizzy Cold Brew Concentrate

ILIFE A4s Robot Vacuum Cleaner

My snap judgment: So on-brand it hurts. Although, you’d think you’d have the energy to vacuum after drinking all that cold brew.

Me

Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition

Lightweight Foldable Headphones

Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

The High-Potential Leader: How to Grow Fast, Take on New Responsibilities, and Make an Impact

My snap judgment: Holy shit, how did I buy so much more stuff than everyone else?!?!?! And when did I become such a nerd? But at least Exploding Kittens and that crossbody got me started on my Christmas shopping…

So how did we do, my friends?
