Weekly Update - Slow Cooker and Sunglasses Recommendations and more
The school year is coming to a close, and whether you're marking the occasion with gifts for teachers and grads or preparing for summer with some beach gear and a new pair of shades, Cheapism has you covered.
Cheap Sunglasses.Sure, you can probably find a pair for a few bucks at the grocery store, but do they offer 100 percent protection from harmful UV rays? Do they have sturdy, impact-resistant lenses? The best cheap sunglasses -- from brands such as JiMarti, Sunbelt, Black Flys, and even Nike -- may cost a bit more, but they promise to last far longer and more effectively protect your eyes.
