Put A Rings on It
One of the rules I set for myself during the #5RingDiet was no online shopping. It just seemed too easy. Took some of the challenge and fun out of it (not to mention the money out of my wallet). But if I would have been willing to spend a few pounds and stocked up on luxuries in London, here are some items I could’ve added to the diet.
Pillows. Uses: Pillows or heck, a whole bed.
Oven mitts. Didn’t matter anyway, I couldn’t cook anything.
A tea cosy. Probably could’ve doubled as a hat.
#5RingDiet memory cards. I’m sure #5RingDiet cameras exist, I just didn’t see any.
They even make #5RingDiet book lights.
And salad tongs. Fortunately, McDonalds salads come pre-mixed.
And if there’s ever a traffic jam, there’s always the #5RingDiet traffic lane.
Or avoid the jam completely by looking ahead with this Nikon Fieldscope, yours for just 500 GBP.
This charming bracelet was just 185 GBP.
Yes, there’s even IOC-approved internet.
For those of you playing along at home, you can host your own #5RingDiet game night with this special edition version of Bananagrams.
But the one thing I probably could’ve used the most was the #5RingDiet deck chair. I probably could’ve MacGuyvered it a bit and made a tiny cot.
But considering all of the #5RingDiet paraphernalia I’ve gotten rid of over the past few months, I guess in the long run I’m glad I saved my money, roughed it, and didn’t add any of these to the collection.
