Hi, I'm Jacob! I'm a coder based out of Brooklyn. In my spare time, I love drawing, hitting the gym, and (you guessed it) coding.
Here's a list of 33 things I bought on Amazon that I'd buy 100 times again - from the best beard oil to unflavored protein powder that actually lives up to its name, I highly recommend these buys and hope you find a new favorite on my list.
We hope you find these handy products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We participate in affiliate programs and may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.
