A couple weeks ago, when we finally had nice enough weather that I didn't need a jacket (therefore had no pockets to stash water in), I grabbed my Fuel Belt and realized it was worn out and I'd need a new one before full on summer set in. Of course, I went to their site and... they've discontinued making the belt I like. Sigh.
This sent me to Amazon where I searched because I knew a bunch of different styles and brands would come up. I actually found the same belt I have now and put it in my cart as I continued to look. Then, I found a different one at 1/2 the price of the Fuel Belt. I figured what the heck, I'll order and if I hate it, return and get the Fuel Belt.
I had a chance to use it over the weekend. Made by Adalid, it only has 2 bottles but they are 10 oz. bottles and the pocket on the front is large enough for my phone, plus keys or whatever. It has a clip closure that is adjustable for waists from 27" to 40" (instead of velcro like Fuel Belt). It also came with toggles to attach a race bib to - removable when you're not using them. My verdict is that I love it. In fact, I like it better than Fuel Belt.
Of course, last Monday morning I ran in shorts and a tee with my old belt and this past Monday, I had to drag my jacket back out as it was only 40 degrees. Spring in New England. By the way, Adalid has not compensated me in any way, I just really like this product and wanted to share.
After lunch we decided to go look at the non-clothing areas of the store to walk off our lunch. As we were headed to the bargain/outlet section I spied a comforter set that I liked. About a year ago I changed the color scheme in our bedroom linens to navy. You would not believe how hard it was to find a navy-ish comforter. I finally found one on Amazon and not even a year later, it was falling apart.
As I went to look at it my friend said she'd been looking for something just like it for her remodel (she did the works - new furniture, paint, etc.) so I told her to take it because I couldn't afford it anyway - it was $360. She replied that she thought it was on sale for $149, so when I said, "Oh!" she said she'd find a sales person and see if they had another, if I didn't mind us having the same. Of course I didn't mind, it's not like we're showing up at a party in the same dress, right? They did have one and we both ended up buying the set - which had 14 pieces, including a set of sheets!
Best of all? When we got to the register, it was marked down even more and we paid only $100!!! I put it on our bed yesterday and I'm just going to say I see why it cost $360. The quality is amazing and it made the whole room feel rich. It's probably the nicest comforter we've ever had.
I was on Amazon looking for something else and a water bottle with a built in infuser popped up in my recommended items. (I swear, it's like they read your mind). I bought it and now am enjoying something other than plain water. Best of all, it has a lifetime warranty and when you register it, they send you a free ebook with infusion recipes. It's made by Danum if you'd like to search for it. Again, I was not compensated for this, it's just a new thing I'm enjoying.
What's new with you?
