Election Day is drawing closer and closer, and regardless of which side you support, you have to love living in the good ol’ US of A.
On top of that, the very next week we’ll be celebrating Veterans Day. I can’t think a better time to don the stars and stripes. The best thing about the American flag is its versatility. Anything red, white, and blue with stars and stripes looks patriotic and fun. OK, maybe not everything.
But I have found 5 products on eBay that put Old Glory to good use for less than $5. That’s a deal I can pledge allegiance to.
Oh this necktie is classy! I can’t imagine any event that this tie isn’t appropriate for. Job interview? (Formal, check.) Prom? (Fun, check.) Barbeque? (Why not!)
In all seriousness, this is a nice tie. Of all the under $5 junk I’ve sorted through, this is the most practical, high-quality item I’ve seen yet.
For only $2.99 (and free shipping), this is an incredible value. Personally, as you may have guessed, I’m seriously considering purchasing this.
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but nobody likes Lance Armstrong anymore. He may deserve it, with his cheating and lying, but the biggest effect on his scandal will be on the wrists of millions of Americans.
I’d been wearing a Livestrong band since 7th grade for whatever reason. My most recent band broke late this summer just before any of this news broke (coincidence?!). I’m probably not going to replace it at with another yellow circle of lies courtesy of Mr. Armstrong, but I am very used to having something on my wrist.
I wonder what cause I could support with a wristband that will never ever let me down. Oh yeah, America! For $2.48 ($1.95 shipping), I could proudly sport the stars and stripes. Uh-oh, I’m seriously considering purchasing this one too.
I look at my phone a lot. Actually, hang on a second. Sorry, I was checking my phone.
Given that, I’d like my phone to be something that is nice to look at. An American flag phone case would be perfect. With a low price of $3.49, this case turns any phone fun. Well, this one is for the iPhone 5, which is already pretty fun, but it’s even more fun with the case.
Seeing as I’m going to become an iPhone 5 user soon, I’m seriously considering purchasing this.
Finally, a product for the ladies! I’m not really sure when you could wear these, but then again, like that necktie, I can’t imagine a time that you couldn’t wear them.
By dropping an easy $3.98, a pair of legs can become a star-spangled bottom half. I’m starting to think we should make a giant pair of these and slap them on Lady Liberty.
And for those wondering: No, I won’t seriously consider purchasing these.
(Did you guys catch any of those Kanye references? They were pretty subtle.)
Uncle Sam wants you! (To share in the comments how you show some American pride.)
