Round Avery labels for my canned goodies (jams and so on).

http://www.amazon.com/Avery-Permanent-Print-To-The-Edge-Labels-22807/dp/B005IMAKYG/

I priced Ball jars (and Kerr jars) on Amazon but the prices were ridiculous. $19.49 for a package of 12 half pint jars. I can buy them down at the hardware store for $12.49. And I bet if I shop around a bit, I can find them for $9.99 or less.

I find this cereal edible, it is reasonably low cal, and it seems to have disappeared from my local stores.

I also ordered the electric shaver that is a deal of the day. I will switch back and forth with my rotary shaver.

What cereal?
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

These are my last 2 non-Subscribe & Save items.


I get my monthly "Subscribe & Save" of boring stuff like toilet paper, paper towels, cat food, dog food & dog treats.

What cereal?

Oops! I added the link to my original post.



Fiber One Honey Squares, 80 Calories

Not as good as Cap'n Crunchberries, but definitely edible. I even was able to eat it in moderation with almond milk while doing low carb Atkins diet, which is how I got started with it. They have a low calorie chocolate version that is tolerable, but not as good.

Black New Balance Cross-Trainers.  Have to send them back because they are not in the size I ordered.  Box has the correct size (10) but the actual shoes are 9.5.  Tried one on -- too small.  Have been wearing shoes like these for about 5 years.

Also received in the same package Audio-Technica headphones:

and two Belkin mini-to-mini cables (connecting the old headphones to ipod):

Other than Kindle book, games apps..

I ordered a tower oscillating fan because my old one was balking at working or would suddenly start screeching in the middle of the night.

The last thing I ordered was 8 place settings of stainless flatware. Through the years the occasional spoon or fork has disappeared from my old set of stainless, apparently having been swallowed up in a black hole somewhere in my kitchen. It's nice to have a new, complete set.  :D

I've wanted a better cleaning solution for my DVDs than the thing I p/u years ago (it's cheap plastic, but whatever), so I got cleaning solution and microfiber cloths:





I've also started the Paleo Diet just recently (more for health issues than for losing weight, although I have lost a bit :)). Some recipes include arrowroot flour. I went to my local Shop Rite - out of stock. Tried another Shop Rite - zippo. And nothing at any other area food stores (don't have a Whole Foods nearby), so I ordered:



Ordered all this late yesterday. I have Prime, so should be getting the order tomorrow. I love Prime!

Decided I didn't like the cheap little case that came with my new camera, so ordered this one:



(Although at $9.74, I guess this is still cheap, but seems a lot more useful and protective)

Just ordered today:



I'm cooking more now that I'm on the Paleo Diet (not strictly following it, but close enough), and altho I don't have a ton of spices, my cabinets aren't spacious (and hardly any countertop room), and I want to be able to find stuff a lot quicker.



I love salmon, but I'm lazy, and don't eat it for 3 meals a week like I should. It's also hard for me to eat without regular mayo, which is a no-no for the Paleo Diet. :) (I do feel better overall, but I still miss eating some foods.) Anyway, I did some research, and decided the above fish oil caps had the best bang for the buck for me.

For my business I ordered the print edition of Adobe After Effects CS5 Visual Effects and Compositing Studio Techniques (we're not upgrading to the money-draining "Creative Cloud" ...yet?).


I've also started the Paleo Diet...

As mentioned in the other thread, I've been learning about a low FODMAP diet, and a couple must-avoid things are onions and garlic. Apparently asafoetida (hing) powder offers a similar flavoring and does not have FODMAPs, but finding it is a challenge. So, of course, I turned to Amazon. Oh, my... I didn't know how "magical" it would be.  ::)

A bit more than I wanted to spend, but between using them at work when trying to concentrate in an open office environment, or listening to music at home while the air conditioner is running, or the long flights I'll have next month to/from Wyoming, hopefully I'll be glad I made the investment.

Re-ordered black New Balance Womens 608 Shoes (cross-trainers) last night.  They sent me wrong size a few weeks ago (box had correct size on it but the shoes were a half size smaller).  Returned them and got credit.

Ordered two Bali Women's Comfort Revolution Wirefree Bras with Smart Sizes today.  Amazon has a sale on lingerie.  I know, probably TMI. ;D

I ordered one of these:



It's a $35 Linux computer about the size of a deck of cards. My home automation system computer and software is over 10 years old, and can't talk to any of the new peripherals, so a replacement is in order. I found out that a new computer and the software to operate things would be about $900. After two or three days investigation I found that this small inexpensive computer and some free open source software will apparently do everything I need. I'll have to learn some Perl programming skills, but luckily have someone available to help teach me what I need to know. If it doesn't work out, I won't have lost much.  ;D

Ain't technology wonderful?

Mike
