Not exactly a black Friday special, but I just bought a dual output bench power supply off ebay. A Xantrex 6030D. You would laugh if you saw the current abomination I have right now. Figured it was time for a proper one.

Just ordered snus. 20% off, so it just about covered the expensive shipping from Sweden.

Bought a TV for myself that I use as a monitor, and got a set of Airpods Pro for my nephew, who turns 21 tomorrow.

Did you expand the kitchen to take up the whole yard as well?
Sadly my rental has a very nice 10x10' concrete pad for a backyard lol. I've had to go vertical in my tiny half-galley kitchen hahaha.

Did you try them first? A lot of people are complaining that they're too big :(
No, but my wife and daughter both have pair of AirPods Pro. They said it's better and more comfortable than the gen1 AirPods they had before. The Pros have three different silicone tips that clicks into place so comfort and fit shouldn't be an issue. The gen1 AirPods are much bigger than the Pros and not adjustable.

I'm probably going for the Viofo A129 Plus Duo dashcam for $141.52 (20% off regular price) on Amazon - I've been wanting a dashcam for a while.

Also, H&R Block Deluxe + State is on sale for $22.49, and you get 20% back on your Amazon Prime credit card.

I forgot how awesome Microcenter is. I could spend a lot of money in there but settled for two extra case fans and some compressed air

Not seeing much else although I did pick up a Gamma 2 container for better rice storage and preordered Leviathan Falls with Amazon's 50% off a book deal

I grabbed this chromebook at Costco, otherwise maybe we will get a subscription or two. I am seriously getting rid of more stuff all the time in preparation for our first move in 28 years.

Bought some PS5 games last Friday when Gamestop was doing buy 2 get 1 free. B2G1 sales are usually trash on games since the retailer jacks the prices up beforehand usually, but this one was pretty good since it was B2G1 but with all the games having Black Friday pricing. Picked up Demons Souls for $40, Lost Judgment for $30, and got Deathloop free. Then picked up Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart and Ace Combat 7 Deluxe Edition off PSN's Black Friday Sale. Pretty much all I was looking for, all the games I wanted were on sale, already have a PS5 and a Switch, and not worried about getting a Series X until at least this time next year. And not touching PC upgrades while gpu prices suck so much.

Picked up a few small items we were considering:
A furbo dog cam, and a new backpack for occasional work and personal trips and a portable battery to replace the ones that I had that were stolen.

Ordered Oculus Quest 2 for the wife. She tried it yesterday at my sister's house and really liked it.

It's REALLY fun! Get Beatsaber first thing! You can also use Airlink to play Steam games if you have a gaming PC! For exercise, I use Virzoom with a Magene sensor for my indoor recumbent bike. You can bike anywhere in the world on Google Maps. Looks kinda weird but pretty dang cool at the same time:


Holofit is also pretty cool: (works with FTMS-Bluetooth enabled bikes & ellipticals, or with third-party cadence sensors: IGPSport C61, Garmin 2, Gemini 210 S3+, Wahoo)

Man I hate moving so much lol. My current rental expires next year & I'm not planning on renewing, so I'm going to be in the same boat too lol

Pretty light shopping for me this year.

I bought a pair of Sony headphones, and a 2 year Bitdefender Family Pack subscription for $30.

I hit a couple of stores and also noticed how empty the stores were. I did some shopping for other people who asked me to grab items that they wanted.
