Drew is the author of The Worst Things For SaleToothpaste For Dinner and Married To The Sea.

Your contribution via Patreon will let Drew continue creating Married To The Sea, The Worst Things For Sale, Toothpaste For Dinner, and allows me to keep making new and weird projects for my readers to enjoy.

The daily work to find items for The Worst Things For Sale, and envision and create our comics, takes up anywhere from 8-12 hours a day, seven days a week. We live, eat, and breathe this work, and it's been enjoyed by millions of readers since the early 00's.

Unfortunately, advertising rates have plummeted, which has as much to do with the industry as it does with the fact that writing that tell people not to buy stuff is generally disliked by advertisers. The Worst Things For Sale used to make a reasonable amount of money from Am*zon, which it no longer does, due to heavy cuts in affiliate payouts, and, again, the realization that telling people not to buy items doesn't make them very much money. 

Over the years, we've sold t-shirts, prints, mugs, and a variety of products, but this, too, is no longer sufficient to keep us going. There are only so many posters, buttons, and original pieces of artwork you can own, and at this point, most people who wanted one Married To The Sea thing or another have already bought one.

Likewise, there's no real way to merchandise The Worst Things For Sale, not that selling something from a site that tells you not to buy consumer goods would be in the spirit of the site to begin with.


If you like our work and want to keep us going, as little as $3 a month ($0.10 a day) would be monumental in helping us continue writing, drawing, and illustrating 365 days a year. It's chump change, but if enough of our readers can chip in, we'll be able to keep going.

The BIG DEAL is the $25 pledge level. Every three months you'll get a package in the mail full of brand-new merchandise that we've designed, along with physical entertainment content, like comics or writing. You get EXCLUSIVE stuff that NO ONE else gets, and this level is limited to 100 subscribers, so if you see an open slot, this is your chance to get some of the weirdest and most interesting art and merchandise we've ever made.

Being able to continue our work despite the changing landscape of "content" online has only been possible due to our amazing and generous Patreon contributors. You make the difference. You are keeping it going. You are essential to everything we make. Thank you.
Tiers
"I Don't Want You To Quit Making Stuff"
$3 or more per month
Pledge $3 a month ($0.10 a day) and you'll be helping to keep The Worst Things For Sale and our comics online. We can't make much on affiliate, advertising, or merch sales anymore, so this is essential to us. 
Drew & Natalie Live!
$10 or more per month
At this funding level, still only $0.30 per day, you'll be invited to a secret monthly online gathering where Drew will live-stream on Twitch or FB Live. We'll post the URL here, or you can just follow @drewtoothpaste on Facebook & Twitter, and you'll be notified there too. You can ask questions, if you want, or just chat. No pressure. Just fun.


A pledge at this level would be a significant part of the monthly funding that helps keep our sites online & functional. But.....

THE GOOD LEVEL WITH THE FREE STUFF!
$25 or more per month
THIS IS THE LEVEL YOU WANT.

At this level we will send you an exclusive package full of great stuff every 3 months. We'll be creating small-batch art prints, drinkware, stickers, buttons, and similar merch items to include in your seasonal package. It is capped at 40 contributors. What you receive will be enjoyable if you already like our work.

Just a note - if you have bought merch in the past, everything you receive as a reward for contributing at this level will be new to you. You will ONLY be receiving NEW merchandise which has never been offered for sale before - which means if you've bought stuff from Sharing Machine you're not going to wind up with duplicates. Your $ from this tier still helps us make creative work, of course, but you'll also get some insanely great art and useful novelties to go along with it.

* If you're not in the USA, please pledge an additional $5 ($30 total) so we can cover the shipping to your address!

Luxury: The Art Level
$75 or more per month
As a member of this super-exclusive reward tier, you will receive ORIGINAL, HANDMADE artwork by Drew in the mail, EVERY MONTH, along with the $10/$25 tier rewards. The artwork you receive will be handmade, signed, dated and will not appear online. Limited to a small group, because Drew has to hand-make the rewards for this tier!
The King/Queen Of Married To The Sea
$500 or more per month (sold out!)
You will be crowned King (or Queen) Of Married To The Sea, and your picture, that you provide, will appear on the front page of Married To The Sea, along with a written passage declaring you as the King (or Queen) of it. You will also get all the other stuff from the other levels. You're royalty, I don't have to repeat myself to you.
Goals
83% complete
When this goal is reached, Drew will begin production on a new video series of The Worst Things For Sale. All of the terrible products you'd expect from The Worst Things For Sale, laid out in videos that show how terrible they really are. The money from this goal will go towards leasing/buying equipment to allow for video production as well as hiring a camera operator/sound tech so it looks and sounds as good as possible.

We'd like to create, at minimum, a weekly five-minute episode of several Worst Things For Sale. Let's make it happen.
