Best Purchase you have made???

Recommended Posts

Ok so a previous post made me think of this. What is the best purchase you have ever made. I'm not talking about a house or anything like that, but something you purchased and it ended up being something that either helped a ton, made your life easier or whatever.

 

Mine, hands down is our carpet cleaner. We purchased it the same weekend we moved into our new townhome. Our puppy (he was 6 months old when we moved) got an upset stomach with the move and puked all over the carpets within a couple hours of moving in. We went out that day and got this carpet cleaner. Fast forward to 2 1/2 years later and many different foster dogs and it's seriously been a life savor. I can't tell you how many times my carpet has been peed, puked, sh*t on or got dirty for being outside. I must use the carpet cleaner at least once a week to clean up a mess.

our bed, we spent some of our wedding money and bought a costco tempurpedic bed and new bed frame from Ikea, its a king size and I love actually being able to have room to sleep. I love our bed, it was worth all the money we spent on it.

I will agree with the carpet cleaner. I have used on the floors, but I get the most use of it on our bed! Over the last few years, our kids have had leaky diapers in there when they are sleeping, and now that our daughter is potty trained, she has had 3 accidents...all in our bed. She wakes up during the night sometimes and crawls into bed with us. Twice my FI has woken up wet and once I have. She never has accidents in her bed! The steam cleaner is awesome ffor cleaning that up, otherwise I would have to put rubber sheets on our bed.

Oh yeah, sometimes the bottles get dropped on the bed and leak too.

The Expedit book shelves from IKEA, seriously, they are the best bookshelves, period. I have a LOT of books, and trying to find shevles that are both strong enough to support them, and have enough space to hold not only what I own, but what I may potentially own, was quite daunting. But these shelves, amazing. And as an added bonus, they are great to use as room dividers, since the shelves are wide enough to have books spined outwards on both sides.

 

I LOVE THESE SHELVES!!! cheer2.gifelefant.gifbunny_4.gif

I would say our double showerhead.

I got our bathroom remodeled a couple months back and I had they guy put in a new showerhead. They both have adjustable pressure and one detaches from the wall. It is the best.

I just can't keep my son from using my shower now. He loves to just hold the hand-held one and stand under the water

This is exactly what I have been looking for! We need something for our office and when I described it to my FI that is basically what I described! Thanks so much!

The Dyson Animal Vacuum. I swear that thing will suck up an elephant if it were on my carpet. I love it. Having four dogs it really really helps. I use it almost every day. When I use it people come over and ask if we just got our carpets cleaned... It makes the carpets stand up and look brand new.

I'm so glad! A slight word of warning, there are a lot of pieces to these shelves, and putting them together may seem daunting, but it is so worth it. We've taken them apart and put them together three times now (they don't move well when they are still together), and it just gets easier each time.

LOL I will warn the FI that is his dept... I pick out the cute things and he puts them together. It works well HA HA

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
