I bought most of what I wanted in the last couple of months or so from Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk. I’m expecting one other shipment from Amazon.co.uk. I’ve had my eye on a four-bay NAS [Network-Accessible (or Attached) Storage] for a while. I’ve also had my eye on an air fryer lid for my InstantPot. I doubt there will be a deal for the NAS.October 4, 2020 at 9:05 pm #217539
Oh, I forgot to add…
I hope you don’t have any trouble getting a new fridge, Emily. Here in the US, appliances seem to come scarce lately. I read about Edgar’s experience on mouseprint.org: https://www.mouseprint.org/2020/09/14/need-a-new-refrigerator-fast-dont-count-on-it/
A co-worker is having the same issue, even though his fridge is more high-end. He also tried the repair route, but getting the part(s) would still be problematic. He ordered a new one, but he’s keeping his fingers crossed.October 5, 2020 at 7:17 am #217560
Things are fluctuating here in the UK a bit but luckily I bought a new fridge at the beginning of summer so I should be Ok. There does seem to be similar ones to mine available but the range seems more restricted and prices higher.October 5, 2020 at 1:44 pm #217578
During lockdown, a lot of people were doing home improvements or remodeling. I can’t see how this would cause a such a shortage…unless one adds in hoarders? Maybe, reduced output at the factories as well?October 10, 2020 at 1:21 pm #217920
I could never be a hoarder, TestDummyC: I am trying to throw things away – not buy new things! Admittedly, I did buy a new set of headphones from Amazon a while ago, but they were necessary. I buy what I need, rather than want. I don’t want my apartment overflowing with stuff. I am not a minimalist, though: I do have treasured ornaments.
Anyhow, Amazon Prime is a great service. No wonder Amazon is global!October 10, 2020 at 7:14 pm #217938October 14, 2020 at 12:23 pm #218153
I’m avoiding Amazon for Prime days. Silly me, but it might help keep me on the path of buying less of what I want and then not having funds for what we need. Like winter outerwear, which is on our list for next week when we get a couple government deposits.
I’m not planning to buy much for Christmas online, just new Narnia book sets for two of the boys and Wings of Fire (dragon books) for another. Then I’ll go for little things at the dollar store. Two of the boys were born in fall and one in winter, so that will also lead to more book purchases probably!October 15, 2020 at 7:09 am #218201
