Bought for immediate download another Norton internet Security for used but free desktop PC going in my shop - the 5 user version I buy every year that takes care of other desktops, notebook, mom's computer, etc. had no more licenses to dish out, so I bought another 3 user pack as it was only 2 bucks more than a single user.

Not so pleased to learn that Symantec no longer allows identity vault to be kept on the local computer, forcing new installs to go to the "cloud". Bad idea, IMHO.

I love that cart! That could be so handy to have, for a variety of uses.

So what's so great about this oven since I'm now in the market for one?

Lol!! Just tell them it's a box of shower caps. Imagine grandma in the shower trying to put one of them on her head?!

Last order? A second battery and a remote shutter control for my DSLR, and some jewelry for a friend's birthday.

Two bottles of aveeno bath oil, because we can no longer find it here in stores. It helps with really dry skin. Thank you, Amazon!

A new wireless router today. I was in Walmart today and a 15 foot ethernet cable was about $15. The router was $23 and will make my life a lot easier. I was going to wait until I could get a router from my DD, but this one was cheap enough to not worry about it. Sure hope it works good.

So what's so great about this oven since I'm now in the market for one?

We also got the same oven but bought it from an local store with a discount. It's really versatile and easy to clean too. We got it during the winter when a mouse found our kitchen counter and the crumbs in our toaster. Decided to replace toaster and wedding present toaster oven at the same time. It's big enough for a small pizza but doesn't take much space. Looks nice too.

Exactly! I know when I'm ordering "groceries" from Amazon I'm always glad I don't have to worry about the weight. Canned goods are heavy.

But then I remember that 100 pound glass stereo TV console/table that we ordered and had delivered overnight Saturday delivery for $3.99 shipping! Prime is a deal!

These look like they would be great but there's never enough counter space for these kind of appliances. I think we'd have to remodel our kitchen to make room but that would be a reeeeaaaally expensive oven!

This week, 2.4a 12v USB adapter and lightning cable for my truck so my iPad will stay charged while using the gps, maps, and altitude functions during long trips.

Last week, embroidery hoops for DW.

Week before, Digifit Saddle for DD and DSIL for running with their iPhones.

Week before, unmentionables for DW

....

Something or other, once or twice a week. We have Prime, and rarely order things that cost extra to ship (non-prime that does not have free shipping).

This week I ordered:

(1) Spare recharge/sync cable for my iPhone 5s, just in case...
(2) New stainless flatware, 8 place settings



It will be wonderful to have a new, complete set of stainless, since over the years it seems like the occasional spoon or fork drops into a black hole, never to be seen again. Some people lose socks in these black holes. I never do; I lose spoons instead.

I paid zero for the above purchases, instead using the gift card that I got as a reward for signing up for an Amazon credit card. I still have $5 left on that gift card.

Thanks to the recommendations here, I ordered one over the weekend so that's now my most recent order.
