Best thing you've bought recently
« on: July 05, 2021, 11:55:21 AM »
I bought one of those aroma humidifier things - it's so good. Smells stronger than candles and now my room smells like a spa. What's the best thing you've bought recently?

we wash an absolute crap load of water bottles for ourselves and the kids. I hate squirting the soap into them each every day to clean them and I bought this pumper on a whim and it has dramatically improved my quality of life just being able to hit the pump thing to squirt some in each bottle.

I bought some of those solar lights from Costco to light up our little brick walkway into our house.  I thought they’d be kind of shitty and not really stay on at night very long, but those things work astonishingly well and work great.

Was looking at these. Can you turn them off or do they stay on all the time?

Bought a small Ice Mule cooler bag thingy. Needed a smallish cooler for kid events and to hide beers in at the pool. Only a few uses in, but I like it so far.

They turn off when it's light enough and turn on when it's dark enough.

I bought a new grill. Nothing fancy. Just your average $300 4-burner. So nice to cook outside in the summer.

My wife bought an "ice cream spade."  it's like a scooper, but has a sharp flatter end to it, and it won't bend.  That rough rider can dig through any type of ice cream.  This isn't the one she bought, but it's similar.

Started doing this a few years ago. So nice. Have gone to the brown tint. Can drive well past sunset with them to avoid the headlight glare. When you get over 45, you'll start griping about bright lights that aren't on high beam.

Waterproof JBL Extreme 3 wireless Bluetooth speaker/boombox w/ 15 hour charge life.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I love to sit in a sauna, especially in fall/winter. I put on some soft jams, close my eyes, and then just sweat it out for 20-30. It feels great. Pandemic killed that so I bought one of those 2 people Costco saunas. I had pretty low expectations, but figured I would give it a shot since you can return anything to Costco. Its amazing. Now I can sweat out my rage in the comfort of my own home.

Having a home sauna would be awesome.

we had one of these growing up. It was the best ever. No Best Choice vanilla ice cream bucket stood a chance.

Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Our local bank gave those away one year for the annual open house. You could dish up huge bowlfuls of ice cream from the 5QT bucket and then douse it with hershey chocolate syrup. Probably 20% of the calories I took in between age 8 and 18 came in this form.

Inside one or outside one?  If inside, how are you controlling for extra heat and humidity?

My folks had a give away ice cream scoop similar to that.  I ended up with it after they passed, and I still use it for frozen hard ice cream.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Man, a sauna is one hell of a contribution to this thread. A freaking SAUNA! Wow!

Do you just preheat it like an oven? How long does that take? Does it have rocks or fake rocks that you can pour water on for steam?

Is that what the hot rocks are for? Steam? I don't even know! It's so fancy!
