Spending Spree (8th April 2016)

A few choice purchases I have made recently for the newest place I’m renting. (Which isn’t really that new any more.)

Dyson V6 Animal

Upright vacuum cleaner, refurbished, from Dyson Outlet on eBay. Trying one out in PC World with Fiona convinced me it was a good buy.

It’s battery powered, like a DIY drill. That means no power cable to trip over or have to unplug and plug back in as you move around the property. Should be ideal for my stairs, too.

Imagine an oversized but well balanced Dirt Devil or Dust Buster. Add a long pipe and cleaning head like a conventional cleaner.

Zeal Oven Mitts

One per purchase – be sure to buy two at once and the packaging is combined.

Cateye Strada Wireless

Got one 2nd hand with parts missing. It was half the price of the cheapest new ones and I only needed to computer. That part is easily 50% of the kit’s value and I didn’t want a load more spare bits. Previous one got knocked off while wearing a rucksack in front as well as behind. Couldn’t safely retrieve it from the road before it got squashed. So glad to have one again!

Definitely want white accessories instead of black next time. Better visibility when grabbing stuff out of my bag. When checking to make sure I’ve taken everything off it when parking up a more visible colour is better, too.

(More to follow.)
