"What have you bought on eBay lately?"

"Dunno. Let me go see."


Twinkies?

I saved BIG on tires for the truck and trailers. Tireteam.com

Amazon prime is worth every penny!

And... $8800 doesn't seem like a hell of a lot. I mean, shiat, there are 300 million of us. Seems a bit low.

Maybe for you 1% types saving almost $9000 seems low. I probably don't even spend that much on myself- excluding cost of living, of course-- so I'm not sure how my savings are going to exceed that.
But yes, I do find some pretty good deals on hotels, local restaurants, events, etc now and then.

Umm.. think you missed his point here. Subby's poorly written headline would indicate that we saved approximatley .00000002 per person.

came to post something about Mama's Family, but i see that's been covered.

I paid $1500 for several antique iron levels on eBay. Sold all but 2 for $3700 at local auction. Yay me.

Rufus Lee King: Actually, I was looking to stock up on Ding-Dongs, but something went horribly wrong when I typed that into the search engine.


It's even worse if you search for Twinkies. Trust me.

Damn math. $0.00002 per person

I have yet to be so drunk that I've made a stupid online purchase!

Yet.
 
2012-11-17 08:53:27 AM
Amazon and beer and MP3s and me. National figure would have been .000022 each.
 
2012-11-17 09:24:13 AM
What? People purchase strange things when they're drunk and alone on the internet? No way, man.

I want my $0.00002 back. Yeah, definitely. Definitely $0.00002. Yeah.

I can't imagine how amazon prime is worth a golden damn, but I have received over $4,000 worth of stuff free via amazon vine (got a couple of big ticket items). I don't know why they do it, I'm sure some day it will stop, but meanwhile I am not exactly complaining.

/ on balance, in fairness, i do take time out of my day to honestly and thoroughly review the amazon vine products I get. It's the least I can do given the program's generosity.

i guess this total doesn't include the fines from your sex crimes

Subby +1 on the chuckle headline.

The lack of sales tax pays for amazon prime multiple times over

You and I are peas in a pod, bro. But drunk eBaying is like Corn Flakes and milk. They just go together. It's either that or send rambling, intoxicated emails to all my ex-girlfriends. Think I'll stick with eBay.
