Does the 25lb bag of salt have a spot on this list?

Lol got a few of those (along with some digital credits..I think...) and ended up throwing it out... should’ve kept it for corona as we were drinking tea with lemon juice...
Luckily I found someone who wanted mine :D

I've gotten so many free items from Amazon it would be scary to post them all.

But I found this to be oddly good for grilling and always got good comments

lemon squeezers, anyone?
Got one, never used it, lost it.

But then corona happened and we sent the kids to the dollar store to buy new ones so they can turn all the oranges from school into orange juice. Unfortunately they do not work on apples.
I'm not who you think I am.

Ah but those were much better than the dollar store version! Probably...

Are you serious about this one?
Check out the reviews..
Lol, this guy.

Nice self defense product. May be a good grill iron

Never used it as a grill iron. Gave this to my wife with her new caddy. Comes with a little black case.

Recommended use - self protection. Has a few sharp edges and some heft. The ergonomic handle makes it easy to swing in a self defense situation. Sits nicely next to her seat and does not interfere with the electric seats. Easy to access. Within reach at a moment's notice. Much safer than leaving a firearm locked in a car or for places where weapons are not allowed such as schools, federal buildings and military bases.

120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

Nobody got a BOC from woot?

I have gotten 5 BOC - 95% of them was pure crap. Some of the useful things - post-its, pens, an iPod docking station, some face/hand creams that my wife used, a couple of woot t-shirts

Some of the most useless stuff:
- Laptop bag straps, a laura ingrahm doll

And the most bizarre:
- A 6-pack of assorted color bras that didn't fit anyone in my house.

Does that come with baby formula?

Well, I got those free button batteries last week. Still have no clue what they fit in.
Hashgacha protis!

My kid just came over to me somberly and asked me to change the batteries of his Playmobil lights/siren from his toy ambulance. So I got out two AAA batteries and a screwdriver and got to work opening the battery cover to change the batteries. What do you know? It takes button batteries! I've never stocked them before, and have no clue about the various different models. But I did get that deal, so I checked those batteries, and... it's the exact batteries I need. Two of them, exactly what the deal was!

And so my useless impulse buy (buy?) found a home in a Playmobil toy and my kids is exuberant with joy. Refuah kodem la'makah.

And thus ends my over-dramatized tale.
