You can get the 78 next time. Something to look forward too. I did the Walmart Thanksgiving thing and got a basic smart 65 in Vizio for $648. Best purchase of my life upgrading from 47 in. What was odd was only 30 were in line for this but several hundred 7 rows deep for the $250 basic 50 in. By the time you are ready for your next upgrade Dallas I may be ready for my first Ultra.

Only because I was trying Amazon Prime for free shipping - organic cotton balls and Thayer Rose Witch Hazel.

Other then that, I'm not impressed with Prime - I can't read the lending library because I only have a Kindle app and I can't view many of the last season series I want for free. Same with Hulu Plus. Wanted to see Grimm Season 4 and on Hulu, Comcast is not represented so I'm out. Canceling both after trial.

Mr. Beam LED motion sensor lights. Haven't installed them yet, just played with positioning. They don't all turn on exactly the same time when I open the pantry door, still close enough for me. Finally light in the pantry! We don't have to buy 3 of the same item or not find items we know are there.

Gardening supplies...4' and 6' natural bamboo poles, rubberized pole connectors for making custom vertical supports, blight prevention solution, a manual pump sprayer, and some dark chocolate Lindt truffles to get the free shipping.

Surprisingly, some lawnmower parts. Best price with the free shipping over $35. Even still. I ended up paying $8 for a tiny square shouldered O ring.

Dang, Steely, I could have sent you mine! I never used it and now have a 6.

I ordered a replacement attic vent fan that DH is going to put in this week, so the noise of the old one grinding away doesn't actually drive me completely insane.

Ha! Well, you send 'em, I'll break 'em. Destruction "R" Us.

Kidding. I love that case and they are (nearly) indestructible. All except the holster

I hope to use this as a hotspot when traveling. I have several usb hard drives that will work with it, and it seems like a good way to get pictures to DW and my Ipads.

It's been many months or possibly a year or more since I've ordered from them but last week I purchased a portable gunvault for 59% of what it cost ordering it from the manufacturer. This weekend I saw a Kershaw Chive knife I liked at Bass Pro for mid $50's and purchased it from Amazon for $31.55.

I ordered this laundry cart since the laundry room in my future house is pretty far from the master bedroom. I can also use it to bring in groceries from the car.



I haven't ordered anything from Amazon for quite a while because I will be moving. However, it occurred to me that this one item also could be very useful during unpacking.

It's not a cheap cart at all, but I don't care! Fooey on frugality, this is my 67th birthday present from me to me...
