As promised, we are back with another issue for which Mashable employees spent their money this month have
Although our tax refunds have not yet been fully credited to our bank accounts we have decided to make the (possibly irresponsible) decision to continue buying things as if they did. This month we've put money into our game setups, yoga schedules, sleep routines, and more.
Below what we bought in February 2020.
"If I am ever in Century 21, I am most likely It is the only way to buy a Le Pliage bag for less than the original price than actually going to France. That is exactly what I did the other day I discovered a beautiful light pink color I haven't had it yet. I love these simple bags for everyday use, but they are definitely my travel bag because their material can withstand any weather. Even if you can't find a discounted one, think I'm worth the investment. " —Veronika Kero, Shopping Fellow
" I play an almost unhealthy amount of video games; sometimes to the point where my hand is cramped, so I thought it was time. " To get a really high quality controller that doesn't hurt after a few hours, the Xbox Elite Series 2 has always been my first choice. I don't actually have an Xbox, but it does have a great Bluetooth connectivity feature which allows me to use it on my PC with no noticeable delay. It's expensive, but well worth the investment if you play a lot. " —Dylan Haas, Shopping Reporter
" I leave my dog at home without a crate so that they can walk around and relax, but I would lie When I said I wasn't nervous about doing that at first. My dog is usually not the one who eats a pillow or something, but you never know. So I finally got a furbo, and it was super helpful to dispel those fears, I can check her in on my phone whenever I want, and I can even give her a treat every now and then, which is extremely fun and cute , " – Dylan Haas, Purchasing Reporter
A new statement candle
"I'm a total candlestick freak. I literally can't stay. I have a closet full of it and buy more before I go out; totally Jan from The Office Vibes. I have lately heard a lot about Boy Smells, so I decided to test their & # 39; LES & # 39; fragrance and I love it so far. I will definitely get more from them sometime. " —Dylan Haas, Shopping Reporter
"I bought a point-and-shoot film camera around Christmas, but it has a macro lens, so it's not particularly good for much more." As portraits or close-ups, I wanted one with a wider lens. I found a Canon Snappy EL for $ 13.99 on eBay and so far I love it. I haven't developed anything yet, but it's super easy to use and seems to shoot well. " —Miller Kern, Shopping Reporter
" I started taking a buti yoga class that involved jumping, bouncing and moving. The yoga mat I already owned was sliding around the class everywhere, so I needed one with more traction. This one has loads of positive reviews that mention good traction, and I haven't eaten any shit in class so far, so that's nice! " – Miller Kern, Shopping Reporter
" I have been using a bottle brush and a straw brush for a while now, and I finally took the time to find them The set was super cheap and the brushes are nice and effective. The bottle brush surprised me at how massive it is, but it fits into my swell and feels like it is cleaning the entire interior. " – Miller Kern, Shopping Reporter
An electric wine opener and sealer
" Although I drink wine often, I have struggled too often with my manual corkscrew – Most of the time it just felt like I had the strength of a newborn's arm when I couldn't push the corkscrew levers down. This automatic wine opener screws into the cork and knows when it's time to turn the cork up and pull it up by holding one. A handy foil cutter is also built in. I haven't used the vacuum sealer yet (because when do I leave a bottle unfinished?) But I can see how nice it would be for people who have multiple bottles in stock for occasional tastings. " —Leah Stodart, Shopping Reporter
" This month I treated myself to Valentine's Day and bought this duvet cover to match my recently purchased Buffy Cloud duvet. I get one Eucalyptus-based duvet cover to maintain the softness and breathability of the cloud duvet. The best part is that not only is it available in a color other than white, it is also cheaper than the Buffy duvet cover. Seriously, if you like to sleep, you need eucalyptus bedding in your life (and it's great for the environment). " —Kristen Welling, Senior Manager, Digital Analytics
