Stanley food thermos, and/or Stanley beverage thermos. You can use it to either bring in hot drinks or foods such as stews, soups, and chillis. Great way to have warm healthy food for lunch/dinner and save money everyday.

I use simplynoise.com and put on some headphones when I need work done. Great for working in an environment with a lot of background noise.

Since we're coming up on summer:

Those of you who run internet based business or have other jobs where you work off a laptop without any permanent desk will love this one:

Also a pull-up bar. Doing a few reps every time you walk under it adds up over time and will have a subtle but noticeable impact on your physique.

Ok, SLIGHTLY breaking the rules, but these come out to about $100 each...

Shun chef knives are amazing! There are few things that will add to your cooking enjoyment like a good knife.
Now, you can spend a lot more than a Benjamin on one knife if you want, or need to if it's your profession, but for home use, for the average guy, these are outstanding.

Smartwool brand socks and underwear. I have seen other brands that are probably just as good but I have only bought smartwool. Socks are about $20+ per pair and underwear about $50+, very expensive but incredibly comfortable and they last! I have socks that I wear weekly, they are seven years old and are still in almost brand new condition.

Yeah I am. It's good for sleeping, but also just nice to have in the background. The analogue has a nice timbre, and you don't need to dick around online. This

Can you recommend a solid pair for under $100?

I'd like to pick up some but most of the ones I see touted around the internet are a few hundred dollars or so.

Well if you can get to $200, these were just released. They are considered the best sound-quality/noise-reduction to price ratio. Won't be shipping out until the end of the month, and as mine haven't arrived, I can't personally vouch yet. But based on my research, they are the ones to get.

To be honest, that is the least you can expect to pay for a set of this kind. Otherwise you are compromising on sound quality or noise reduction. Bose are over-priced, and while they have the best noise-reduction, their sound quality is not as good as Sennheiser.

I use simplynoise.com and put on some headphones when I need work done. Great for working in an environment with a lot of background noise.

I work in an office where it's fairly loud even with in-ear (not noise canceling) headphones. When it's time to get real work done, I break out 30db earplugs.

Add to the list: orange glasses - they block blue light from screens which helps not fuck with your circadian rhythms if you're staying up late and using technology. A lot of tech already has blue light blockers, but these can also help if you don't have an eye mask.

I can pay more - was just asking because of the thread title. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check them out.

Here's a more cost-effective alternative. I use these right now.

I'd add exactly what was already said. Noise reduction is good but not best in the business. Sound quality however is top notch.

Lifting gloves are kinda Gay, no offense. Callouses are badass, man! Also, lifting gloves actually make lifting harder because they artificially increase the diameter of the bar you're grabbing.

Here's my list (with some repeats):

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet - I probably cook 100 meals on this per year. It's indestructible and gets better with use.

Jawbone Mini-Jambox - For a $20 bluetooth speaker, this thing packs a punch. It's great for listening to music at home and perfect for travel.

Foam Roller - Anyone who foam rolls knows how awesome it can be. If you don't, buy this now and thank me later.

A pillow - I spent basically my entire life sleeping on a 20+ year old piece of shit pillow. I recently bought a reasonable-quality pillow for $40 off Amazon and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long.

What shoes that are quality are that price?

If you don't have access to chalk (or your gym - like mine - doesn't allow it) then gloves are certainly worth looking into. My palms sweat profusely when I lift, and the only way I can hang onto the pullup bar or bust out a set of deadlifts is to use the gloves (although I do use chalk when I travel and have access to gyms that don't mind it).

I'll second the Harbinger recommendation, been using them for years.

Quote:Also, lifting gloves actually make lifting harder because they artificially increase the diameter of the bar you're grabbing.

This could be viewed as both a pro and a con.
