It’s Friday, let’s spend our paychecks on everything! Ugh, okay… we have to be responsible with our stupid money. How about we spend only $25 or less, deal? Here are 25 cute, fun, quirky, ridiculous items you absolutely need to buy, all $25 or less!

1.) Gold Peanut Necklace – $22 Pygmy Hippo Shoppe
I can’t handle how cute this peanut necklace is, I think Katy and I need to buy a matching pair immediately. Everything at Pygmy Hippo is beyond adorable and you should buy all of it and let me borrow it.

2.) Ghost iPhone Case – $24 Valfre
I love Valfre’s phone cases, I love them so much that I can’t commit to upgrading my phone because I can’t bare the thought of having to abandon my existing cases.

17.) Thanksgiving Turkey Ring – $20 Le Petite Bonbon

My fabulous friend Marie gave me a pair of these Pretty Polly suspender tights for Christmas one year, and I fell in love with them the instant I put them on.

They’re amazing quality and fit like a damn dream, they’re available in “Curves” and one-size.

Up your comfy game with some cashmere socks, spend that extra money to swathe your tootsies in the lap of luxury!
