Have you listened to the Tim Ferriss Podcast?
At the end of each interview, Tim asks his guest some “rapid fire questions”. One of those questions is, “What is the best thing you’ve bought under $100 recently?”. My favorite answer so far came from BJ Novak. He loves the ice at nice and fancy bars when he orders nice and fancy drinks. He went on amazon and bought a deep, extra-large ice cube tray for a few bucks. Now he makes himself fancy drinks at home! It’s the little things in life…
My answer would be: my canon film camera. I bought it from an old vintage shop somewhere between Potato Point and Sydney for a mere $8. It took the lenses from my Canon 7D and –because I am random– I was carrying a role of film with me. The camera wasn’t turning on but I really wanted it. The shop owner offered $2 off so I took a chance. Within hours I found batteries and the camera, now named Eric, came to life.
It was without a doubt my best buy of 2015. What was yours?
