Aiwa Exos-9 Bluetooth Speaker

Another excellent bluetooth speaker with bonus benefits like portability, a battery, and the ability to pair with another like speaker for $299.

Good luck finding one right now...

I still love this thing! My genome carrier also has one and the linking feature rocks!

I like Chai.

This is the best Chai I've had so far. The Syrian place uses it near my pad.

Don't buy it from Amazon as its a ripoff. Instead buy it from Sam's and sell it to your friends.

I am in love with my Shark

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

Bought it on a Gold Box deal to replace the bagged Hoover from 1990's Walmart in the basement. I like it better than the Dyson!

Bissell 86T3/86T3Q Big Green Deep Cleaning Professional Grade Carpet Cleaner Machine

I've had Hoover Steam Vacs....had carpets professionally done....and rented the Rug Doctors.....this thing beats them all.

I know its expensive but if you have kids, pets or can write it off somehow this is the one to buy.

Highly recommend Waste Managements Bagster Service.

http://www.wm.com/residential/bagster-bag.jsp

Big enough to handle our Kitchen/Bathroom counter remodel including sinks (x6).

Buy it at the store and then send WM an email and they come pick it up. All for about $150.

Ego Snow Blower

https://www.homedepot.com/p/EGO-21-in-S ... /207099229

Image

I bought this last year because I am getting older and can't shovel snow like I used to (also had some back issues last year). I live in suburban hell and I didn't want an enormous snow blower that had the agility of a dump truck or needed its own garage. I chose this one. At $600 for the 5.0 batts they aren't giving this away but it works well. It can be picked up. It can be folded and a the two 5.0 batteries will work through heavy wet snow for about 30 minutes. Now that being said it is a single stage....and like other single stages this will bog down in heavy wet snow....this also doesn't have an adjustable auger (the auger is also rubber) so if your driveway has shifted (like mine) there are going to be areas where you hang up for a sec (just like shoveling). I've used this in snow up to about a foot and it works well for my 3 car driveway and sidewalks down to the neighbors.

I see they now offer it with the 7.5 batteries for close to $800.....that's a bit steep for the build quality and at this point in time I'd just buy the mower that comes with 7.5 and interchange them. I could see where the extra juice would be very beneficial.

Overall this is a very capable and QUIET single stage that is light, easy to store, easy to maneuver and built for suburbia. Exactly what I needed.

Quicken Loans is f'n awesome. These guys don't mind if you talk trash to them and they seldom bullshit. Just an all around great experience every single time. I have my mortgages with them.


Using these folks to refinance I would say yes. Unfortunately I have tried to use them for other things and the associates just don't seem to be knowledgeable in other areas. I had a very young lady tell me.....just cash out your 401K......uh yeah thanks for that. Easy to say in your early 20's. Again, good for straight refinancing but unable to assist with more complex endeavors that life throws at you later on.

This is a huge mat that can be used under your exercise equipment or just to work out on. I have one under my treadmill and one I use to flop and bounce around on for my kickboxing classes at home. At $30 this thing is a steal. Get it before the word gets out and they drive up the price.

My teeth and gums were in pretty rough shape after university and I bought a Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush that lasted for nearly 10 years before the battery wouldn't hold a charge. Loved that thing.

Split this 2-pack with my brother-in-law when it went on sale for $135. Love this one too.

https://www.costco.ca/Philips-Sonicare- ... 99655.html

I have no idea if the cheaper versions are good or how they compare, but I had such an awesome experience with the first one I had(think it was around $120 or something) that I was willing to spend the money again. Holds the charge for like 2 weeks so you can bring it on vacation.

I have the cheaper one as my Man's area toothbrush ($40). Works just as good if not better than the Oral B rotator brush (1500). Its a little overpowered (1 setting)...and unless you close tight the toothpaste flies everywhere but...the clean is the real deal.

Nicetown Blackout Curtains.

Good Curtains are hard to come by.....and who the hell wants to go to Bed Bath and Beyond to spend hundreds of dollars. These have black on the outside facing and darken the room 100%. They also provide minor sound insulation and help with cool spots around windows.

The Mans' Area has 2 large windows and French doors.

I actually had cell shades (yeah those ridiculous expensive things) with curtains over them. This does the job and although I still have the cell shades I only use them in winter when it gets cold.

Excellent for the price around $40.
