I Can't Afford Any of Oprah's Favorite Things

Every year I wait anxiously to see what lifestyle guru Oprah is going to put on her annual "Favorite Things List". Her 2014 list just went up and I poured over all the awesomeness that Oprah loves. This year there are 72 items ranging from cakes to jewelry. You can see the full list HERE.

Now, I don't know about you, but besides her new book, I cannot afford a damn thing on this list. Fortunately I was able to find a more affordable version of some of the items.

Oprah has these beautiful ball-point pens on her list. They come in bright colors and I am sure write like butter. But at $36.00 for a writing utensil (I am no doubt going to lose) I just can't justify it. Luckily you can find the BIC version of a pen in black, blue or even red ink for a low $0.96!

Now that flip-flop season is behind us, it's time to pamper our feet. Oprah has these super cute cozy socks and some foot cream for the price of $144.00!! Don't worry, I found that you can get pretty much the same thing for under $5.00!

Everyone knows that Oprah loves herself some Moscow Mules. In her list she had this gorgeous copper serving tray and cups. This pretty set will set you back $365.00. Well I can tell you right now that this is way out of my price range. I did find that you can buy 50 red Solo cups for $4.97 and the Moscow mules will taste just as good!

We all know that our pets are part of our family and the deserve a nice gift, too. Now if you are one of Oprah's dogs you get a nice bed that costs between $445-$710! If you are my dog you get one that costs $16.99.

Now I don't have Oprah money (yet!) but I still love to check out her list every year. 


  1. I thought this post was hilarious and I loved it!
