Ummm... not from Amazon, and I didn't order, but thought some might be interested in this week's offering from Aldi....

The Albrecht's version of Go Pro.... Special at $39.95. Might pick one up along with this week's groceries.

Aldi Action Camera - Review - Ride It Out

Didn't wanna start a new thread

Received a bag of Eukanuba dog food and treats today. For my dog....not me. Cheaper than Petco, no tax and delivered to the front door. I don't know how the big box stores stay in business.

I just bought Gillette Trac II cartridges, a real bargain. My local pharmacies stopped carrying these ancient shavings tools so I have to go elsewhere. Never knew how expensive they were locally, even when they were on sale, compared to the huge bargain I got.

Two external hard drives, Acronis True Image 2016 backup software (three computers), three USB flash drives. Actually we only have two computers but the software only comes in licenses for one, three, or five computers for home users.

The hard drive on the desktop failed and while I did have backups that restored most data, it did not restore the software and configurations so I've been spending a lot of time rebuilding the system. According to what I can find and what the guy at the shop said the Acronis software can back up the entire system so hopefully I won't have to go through this again.

Yes it can! I've used Acronis to restore my system disk on two occasions (two different computers) and it worked perfectly.

Thinking about one of these since I need a new wallet. But is RFID theft really all that much of a big deal ?

I haven't considered a Roomba because my dog might be afraid of it and refuse to inhabit any room it might be in.

Just purchased from Amazon the other day. It was an eclectic assortment of products. Wireless headphones for when I go to the gym or work in the yard, some garden snipping shears, a few products for my wife, some water filter cartridges for the kitchen faucet and some hot spa water test strips. Decided to try their "Prime" service, to see if the Amazon Video choices were any good. I think my wife is hooked.

Moto G 4th gen Cell Phone.
$159 for a nice looking phone. I was going to get another iPhone but want to own the device - tired of being locked into contracts. Verizon sales guy kept giving me different answers when I asked what the iPhone 6 cost. They really push for the monthly lease. On line a similar iPhone was well over $700.

So far at $160 it's a darn nice phone. Big clear screen, great battery life, fast processor (coming from an iPhone 4s though), good sound and decent built in speakers. If it lasts a year it's still half the price of an iPhone/Vz lease. Heck, it's cheaper than what Vz wanted to insure DD iPhone 6.

Purchased 16GB of memory for an older Mac book pro. El Capitan was installed to make it go faster. Kid did not realize that with 4GB installed, it would lag even more.
Had to run to lowes to get a better screwdriver to remove/replace case screws.
Kid is asking how much I charge for repairs. Lol.
Apple store wouldn't help her. Said computer needed new hard drive. Disk diagnostics tell me OK. No geniuses at the bar.

Same here, got it as a gift last year, and it's been excellent. Battery lasts a long time and it's quite powerful.

I just ordered some organic, raw cacao powder from Amazon for making hot chocolate and other yummy treats. Only $9.50 for a whole pound -- pretty good deal, I think. I like being able to make hot chocolate where I can control the amount of sugar / sweetness.
