The "What Did You Recently Buy?" Thread

since this is a shopping site it would be nice to have a thread to post about the stuff you all recently bought. I will start:

I bought a pork gyro from messini's, because i read nice things about it on blogto. the price was good; a good amount of food for the money, but the meat was a bit dry, so i didn't enjoy it too much. i would give it a 3/5.

Pretty useless since too broad of a question unless you're talking about food which should be in the foods forum.

Chinese Take Out

* Sharing info, but like others don’t really understand the point of this thread
Everyone on RFD is a Consumer ... Spender & Saver to some degree
So there are a lot of day to day purchases that are made that fall into the mundane
Not sure how sharing this info is helpful
RFD is more about the bigger picture IMO
Ways & Means that RFDers find to save money
Be it a day to day purchase ... or an investment etc

The Chinese Food I bought wasn’t on sale / promo
I bought it cuz I had a craving
And the place I buy from has an excellent reputation
(Quality can trump price in some instances
For us, food is certainly one area where it’s true)
We can afford to eat out , cuz we’ve found ways to manage / save on our other expenses

I read about buying batteries from China and how they might get returned to sender due to CanadaPost, well yesterday I got my eBay phone battery from China (after waiting for over 2 months) and to my surprise it was taped inside the phone back of an iPhone 6.

I installed the battery in my Xiaomi phone and it works fine. Today I thought to post about it on RFD. So here is the phone back (I don't have a pic of the battery anymore, just imagine a battery wrapped in plastic and taped inside the phone).

I guess buying batteries on eBay from China is still good to go.

I ordered a replacement battery for my dashcam last winter and it came through. The packet had "cell phone accessories" on the description
