Well I have had my Roomba a few weeks and it was a great purchase . It really does a decent job . It sails over my tile floors onto my hardwood floors with area rugs and even over bathroom rugs with ease . It is like having a cleaning lady .Best amazon purchase this year !

Last thing was The Division Bell by Pink Floyd, with free shipping.

I've got to decide tomorrow whether to re-up prime again. I really hate paying that much, but we get a lot out of it, including the free and fast shipping and the streaming (we also have Netflix) of shows we can't watch elsewhere.

I bought this book:

Trump: The Deals and the Downfall

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/006...ilpage_o00_s00

Unfortunately, it's out of print, so availability is limited. I bought my copy for $3.95, but the after that, the least expensive copy on Amazon is $129.50.

I was frustrating trying to find things I *need* to fill up the $50 free shipping. I hate "savings" that make you spend more than you would... So I was paying shipping rather than buying stuff I didn't need.

I agree about comparison shopping between prime, non prime, and non-amazon vendors.

The used books are great deals!!!! You can often find something in decent condition.

I was taking advantage for a while, but then I got into ebooks and stopped liking paper.

I am visiting my Mom and the brakes on her walker failed so I just purchased a new rolling walker from Amazon .It was so much cheaper than medical supply stores.

Just ordered a larger TV set (currently have a tiny 21 inch screen).

With the bigger tv, when baseball season starts, I can actually see the ball .

Spring in SWFL means the live oaks are shedding their leaves. We use a blower nearly every day to clear leaves out of our driveway and front entrance. Dealing with the extension cord has been pain, because no matter how carefully I roll it up, it always tangles when we're pulling it along, and then I have to carefully roll it back up. So I got one of the Green Leaf WW-1 Wonder Winder Hand Crank Extension Cord Winder, and it works like a charm. I'm going to get another one when we get back to MD.

I just ordered some aerosol Fluid Film, a lanolin-based rust preventive, after reading some good reviews. It is supposed to creep into cracks and crevices. Gonna give it a try.

I ordered some picture hangers last summer with a $10 gift card that someone gave me the Christmas before. I guess I am not a big online shopper at all.

DH buys some stuff online and does prime, mostly because he actually uses it to watch a lot of movies. I don't object because the last thing he needs is more DVD's laying around the house ..... trying to get him to get rid of a lot of that kind of stuff!

Some marmite and vegemite. I've always been curious, ever since that Men at Work video, but it's so expensive from those boutique stores. Only $6.50 for three jars, direct shipped to my mailbox via Royal Mail.

For the record, I didn't love it. Too salty. Very savory though.

Frostfire solar LED lights for my deck steps. I can bring them in during the winter or the occasional severe weather. I bought 5 boxes, 3 in each. They just sit on the side edge of the steps under the rail.

I'm hoping there are a lot of folks in your shoes. I have a friend who works at the local Good Will. I have asked her to start buying DVDs for me. They are $2 when they go on sale. My satellite internet is too slow for movies and I only get mail when I go to town so NetFlix wouldn't work either. I am putting a very nice home theater in the house I am building so I need a selection of movies. Keep that flow of DVDs to Good Will going!

Bought a cell phone case for my new lumia 640.
Was about $6
It's really nice 3 piece one, silicon wrap for the phone, a hard plastic that wraps over the silicone and has a stand, then another hard plastic shell that has a good clip on it for the belt.
This way I can wear it clipped to the belt or pocket as needed.

I don't like carrying it my pants pockets as I'll sit on it.

Haha, I wanted to try it for the same reason, and got the same result!

On another, slightly related note, Colin Hay, the lead singer, has some amazingly good acoustic-type stuff out now. Worth a listen. Next Year People is his album from last year, and Man at Work, from 2003, is the good acoustic listen, with a few reworked Men at Work songs in the mix.

Oh, and I just ordered some XL Sticky Paws furniture protector sheets. Basically giant sheets of double sticky tape for the "new to me" couch I got over the weekend. Roscoe loves his cat tower, but still seems to prefer the couch for claw sharpening activities!
