What is the last thing you ordered from Amazon?
Just thought this might be fun for those of us who occasionally succumb to the allure of consumerism... ;D

To start the thread, I'll go first. This morning I got an emergency weather radio. This could be a timely purchase, given that I live in New Orleans and that hurricane season is coming up on the first of June.


This is an AM/FM/weather/alerts/shortwave radio, and has a lithium battery, hand crank, solar, and AAA battery backup. It can charge a cell phone or iPad, has a flashlight, and more. Basically it is the Swiss Army knife of radios and looks like a nice radio to have in a weather emergency with power outage.

An assortment of trout flies last week. Couldn't pass up the price; $8.99 for a dozen decent flies.

I signed up for Prime a couple of months ago and I love it.
Plus, I haven't had to pay for anything from Amazon for a while now. I had part of my tax refund sent to my Amazon account and got a 10% bonus for doing that!

Jigsaw blades.

My brother broke and bent the other 3 which I had. He hasn't learned the concept of letting the tool do the job :facepalm:

I bought my new ASUS wireless router. I actually paid for same day delivery, which was available for very close to the standard shipping price (though not free!) I thought I might have to drive around locally to get it before leaving on vacation, but this worked out great.

Bought two of these. Really bright flashlights, and cheap.

A case for my husband's Google Nexus 7 tablet. Ironic, I know. :laugh:

Most messed up CD by the Old 97s, used, thru a dealer on Amazon. A great collection of songs if you have a bent toward alt.country or cowpunk or whatever you want to call it.

An eBook if that counts, but I order merch from Amazon from time to time too.

Just bought a Garmin GPS. My first.

A couple of days later, my credit card was compromised. I feel that it happened on Amazon. New card is on the way.

I bought a replacement case for my dog's Garmin GPS tracking unit. I get about one year out of a case, as it requires unzipping to charge the unit. The zipper eventually dies.

W2R, We have a weather radio like that, really handy. Though ours doesn't have all the bells and whistles that yours has.

Ink to do suminagashi......that's Japanese paper marbling.

SciFi: The Diamond Age: Neal Stephenson: Kindle Store

Both great books.

Last week I just purchased a used version of "The Millionaire Next Door" on Amazon for one cent. Looks a little used but reads just fine. :)
