My top four purchases for 2017
- Oral-B Black Pro 1000 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush Powered by Braun. I paid $39.97 and this item has been well worth it. My dental hygienist has noticed the difference during cleanings. The refill brush heads are a bit expensive, so I have used Generic Oral B Compatible Toothbrush Replacement Heads – 20 Brushes. Each brush head is lasting at least 2 months. So for the $16.48 I paid I will get at least 3.3 years of toothbrushes.
- Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, King and Zinus 12 Inch Solid Wood Platform Bed with Headboard / No Box Spring Needed / Wood Slat Support / Antique Espresso Finish, King. After trying a memory foam mattress for our SURV and noting it was as comfy as our bed, we decided to try a memory foam mattress for the bedroom. I find it quite firm, but I like that. The bed frame took awhile to put together, but I followed the instructions carefully. I took my time and had no problems. We paid $279 for the mattress and $255 for the frame. $534 combined is pretty incredible for the comfort level and DW is happy with the comfort and look. We let the mattress off-gas (air out) in a guest room for two weeks after opening it before we started using it.
- Panasonic KX-TGE233B Expandable Cordless Digital Phone with Large Keypad – 3 Handsets. This phone set allows you to block specific phone numbers without having to pay a monthly fee. This has been a major advantage to block repeat telemarketers. I paid $49.99.
- YI Home Camera Wireless IP Security Surveillance System (US Edition) White. We have used this to monitor our pets while we are not home. We set it up so it monitors the path to their water source. It detects motion and saves a short recording that can be accessed over the internet from an android phone. So we can see each day that our pet is drinking. I paid $39.99 and also got this memory card for it: SanDisk Ultra 32GB microSDHC UHS-I Card with Adapter, Grey/Red, Standard Packaging (SDSQUNC-032G-GN6MA) for $12.77.
