Those weights aren't cheap are they Mart? £500ish?For relaxation: Celestron EdgeHD 8 Telescope, nothing is more relaxing than sitting in the garden on a summer eve, looking at planets, and galaxies and drinking some wine.
For Exercise: Bowflex SelectTech weights, means I can have a full selection of dumbbells from 2kg to 24kg in a small form factor, takes up about 1 1/2 square feet of space, instead of 30 individual dumbells.
yeah, expensive, 550 I think, but if you compare to buying 30 weights between 2-24kg, it's cheaper and takes up less space. I mean you can mess around with a cheaper dumbell set using spinlocks, but who wants to faff around with that? We've all been there and got fed up using them.Those weights aren't cheap are they Mart? £500ish?
That's great especially the mortgage over payment. Amazing the difference it makes. Agree re cars, I have 3 and the. Costs add up3 months prior to first lockdown we gave up one of our two cars, and made huge savings over the last year by not running two vehicles.
Put that money into the house which has allowed us to achieve loads.
for work and gaming, my 38 inch monitor is pretty tasty. I have a gaming pc which are in I’ve probably spent about £4k on the but paid it out of buying and selling various goods so it’s been nice having it for free
In March I bought a koda 16 pizza oven and have made hundreds of pizzas in that time, really good for the garden when it’s sunny.
All our finance is now paid off (just stuff like doors) credit cards are cleared and we have built up a decent set of savings. We overlay our mortgage by £350 a month end going to increase that now
I've had the same set for years, really worth the moneyyeah, expensive, 550 I think, but if you compare to buying 30 weights between 2-24kg, it's cheaper and takes up less space.

So we are nearly a year into various lockdowns and restrictions. What is the best thing you’ve bought in that time?
For me and all my working form home it has to be my Asus portable monitor. Means I can sit anywhere in the house and still have a multi screen set up for work. Handy for anyone who travels and is restricted by the small laptop screen too
Yeah I have a Bluetooth mouse which my sister bought me and use an apple keyboard. Tbh I was a little hasty. About three weeks after I bought mine they brought out a touch screen one with a better resolution. They are Asus Zen screens. Another bonus if you have a newish hauwei or Samsung phone you can actually plug them into it and use them as a PC. They have software in them which allows you to connect to a monitor and instead of a mirror of your phone screen they behave like actually PCs with multi tasking and resizable windows.Cool - I didn't know such a thing exists. Can you get a wireless keyboard & mouse to go with it?
My best buy has to be a PS4
And I got some socks too
