Hello everyone. I was given $1.49 in my Paypal account from Yahoo for dealer feedback. I checked it out with both Yahoo and Paypal and it was legit. Now, what do I do with $1.49? What would you buy? Lets have fun with this....the purchase must be totally covered by the $1.49 including shipping. Smile Bring on the ideas.

Transfer it to your checking account that backs up PayPal.

Then drive down to the bank and withdraw it.

Head for nearest convenience store and get a Long Tall brewskie.

 

Well, you asked....  Laughing

That's easy! The DX 2x 5mm mini-pig flashlight. Only .78. You would have .71 left over!

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/mini-pig-2-leds-flashlight-white-3-lr1130-included-1138

Or, 2 pieces of the plastic 2x18650/4xCR123a battery cases is $1.36...

yeah... great fuel.  totally clean burning, odorless, stores well too in a small Evian water bottle.  I can brown up 4-5 hot dogs in ~10-13 minutes with the mess kit shown, keeping the lid on to trap heat.  The coffee can serves as both a wind screen, a vertical channel to concentrate the heat and a stable support for the fry pan.  The OP will have to rummage through the dumpster for a coffee can to keep within his budget though.

Cool

 

These little vienna sausages fry up nice on the trails, even faster than hot dogs... kind of salty though so make sure you have plenty of water to stay hydrated.  I've also done spam once but it was too salty, I was parched all day.  Turkey burgers are my fave.  I grill them up at home the night before, store them in the fridge or even freezer depending on how many days I plan on being out.  Bust out the little stove and re-fry them up with the lid on till' warm.  The turkey isn't as greasy / messy as ground beef.

Here is s couple ideas.

How about a AAA to AA converters for your AA lights.

http://www.priceangels.com/AAA-to-AA-Battery-Adaptor-s70096.html

A changing 7 color LED Apple nightlight.

Super bright key chain light.

Lens for your AA lights. You might have to sand it a little to fit, but it would be cool.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Where do you get beer for a $1.49?

Nice little multi tool:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/11-in-1-Survival-Camping-Tool-Multi-Credit-Card-Knife-/250996441409?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a708dc141#ht_500wt_1128

 

Or two, slightly above your budget tho:

I have one, used it once to open up some snack, we were really hungry, me and 3 hot females, so needless to say chicks dug it LOL Wink

 

I had no intentions to use it that day, but took it with me as usual, it fed the starving LOL!

Buy a  hello kitty sticker and stick it on my first "Police" branded flashlight and sell it for $20 because I can't give it away otherwise.  Anything hello kitty sells like hot-cakes.

I'd deploy my official anodized 7-11 Slurpee straw and have some me time on the ride home.  Coke flavored only.  The others should be banned!  Bit of a purest that way, y'all are free to drink any flavor you want.  

fidem, prae caeteris omnibus praeter honestatem

 

 

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

My gf left her plastic in the drawer at home, and made a recurring transfer of her earnings to my account just last week.

She keeps telling me every day how world looks, smells and feels better. Today she had a talk with her girl-colleagues and they were all desperate about spending too much this week, while she was all proud of herself. She even suggested they do the same as her.

And no, I'm not joking.

Smile

This is my flashlight collection.
