14 Things You Can Buy Instead Of A $100 Trash Can

You'll be amazed to see that Anthropologie is selling a metal trash can for $100... but what all can you do with that $100 instead?

14 Things You Can Buy Instead Of A $100 Trash Can

I think $100 is a lot of money if you're a college student. Or really, any normal person. Because I'm pretty sure normal people don't throw out $100 on an old trash can (pun intended). But believe it or not, Anthropologie is selling a "handmade, corrugated tin can [with] mango wood or abaca rope handle." #classic. You do you, Anthro.

Or, otherwise known as Oscar the Grouch's home.

I mean, I guess I would be pretty grouchy if I lived in a metal trash can. But I'd be insanely grouchy if I were actually crazy enough to buyone of these for a hundred bucks.

Here's what you could do with $100 of your hard-earned money instead.

1. 100 McDonald's Ice Cream Sundaes

Or 100 small fries. Take your pick.

2. Over a year of Netflix

No more stealing your friend's Netflix password.

3. 27 Stickers of Oscar the Grouch

This way, you can cover your $2 trash can with what could've been...

4. 18 Poop Emoji Pillows

Because why not?

5. ~10 small cheese pizzas... delivered!

Because after all those long nights where you feel like you need pizza.

6. 62 gallons of gas to get you about 1,800 miles -- the distance from Boston to North Carolina... and back... and then some

Road trip, anyone?!

7. 50 Powerball tickets

Though the jackpot may have been won, there's still a chance... and that's a lot of tickets.

8. 12 Portable Pizza Pouches

Because if you have the opportunity to buy so many pizzas, the portable pouch is necessary. And you can buy enough to go around for all your friends.

9. Buy a star

For $54, you can buy a star. And maybe if you make a little bit of money from your Powerball winnings, you can buy a second.

10. Feed a child in Africa for three months

Through Feed the Children, you can provide meals for children who have no other way of having food or other life essentials.

11. Adopt four endangered elephants

WWF allows you to adopt an African elephant for $25 and help the endangered species.

12. Provide meals for the hungry in your area and turn $100 into $1,100

Feeding America allows you to donate easily and provide meals for the hungry in your nearest food bank. Your $1 donation turns into $11 of food.

13. Prevent child abuse

Donate to the American Humane Association to help prevent child abuse.

14. End childhood cancer and allow those to have no hospital bills

St. Judes Children Research Hospital is dedicated to helping children with cancer without ever charging families who can't pay. Donate to help further their cause.

Clearly, there's a lot you can do with $100 besides buying a "designer" trash can.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
