I ordered a motorcycle tank bag for my son for Christmas, some waterproof red blinking LEDs for the dog's collar for night-time walks and a couple of 128 GB USB drives. All good and at better prices than I could find locally.

A package of push-on quick connect adaptors, because I am tired of my OTA antennas just falling off the back of my TV's due to an imperfect fit. Hopefully this will keep them connected a little better.

I ordered them 8 days ago and they haven't been shipped yet. They are supposed to arrive on Wednesday. Slackers. Oh well, that'll teach me to order something that's not Prime.

Yea, I don't find the "buy local" argument valid. Any local business can sell internationally if they want to. And our local / state chamber of commerce is just an arm of a political party.

Nice mike.

Do they usually put up anechoic foam tiles or hang some drapes?

So far, only a thick rug on the floor, but may add some dampening. Previously I used a Shure SM58, left over from a brief stint playing in a band some twenty years ago. Likely a bigger issue with this mic will be ambient noise. A live mic will record equipment and HVAC fan noise perfectly!

Might build a homemade something similar to this:

For the first time ever, my order (for push-on quick connect adaptors) was delayed for several days and then disappeared! I got an e-mail saying that oops, they had run out.

There are other sources on Amazon so I'll just try one of them. But first, I'll wait until my yard is not a hard hat zone due to falling logs and heavy equipment. It will be safer for the UPS guy later next week.

First time for me too was ordering some photo printer ink cartridges. That disappeared too! Rather than reorder from the same vendor at Amazon I ordered from B&H Photo. Free shipping but not in two days but no biggie.

No issues with the refund on the cc, so I'm still going to order stuff from Amazon.

What is the last thing you ordered from Amazon

I ordered four last things:

1. Avery Removable Color Coding Labels, Round. Cost $2.99. Staples price $7.99

2. Avery Color Coding File Folder Labels. Cost $3.99. Staples price $4.95. Staples only had them in white--which makes it really hard to color code.

3. West Bend Digital Timer

4. St. Ives Soft and Silky Body Wash, Coconut and Orchid (24 oz Pack of 2). I am going to smell so good (and as a bonus I'm going to feel soft and silky) all for $8.66.

I ordered a Pizza Peel. We're tired of the local pizza places, so it's home made pizza from now on.

May I ask which peel you ordered?

Almost ordered a pair of sports earphones, trying to log in, forgot password. Then got sidetracked. By the time I got around to resetting it, I lost interest.

Staples. A box of 5000 Duo-Fast wide-crown staples for my ol' reliable Craftsman staple gun (passed down to me from my dad). I couldn't find them at HD or Lowes.

I'm continually amazed that low-value, heavy and moderately bulky stuff can be bought and delivered (to my door) at lower prices than I can get at high-volume B&M retailers.
