Did you buy it? Thoughts after a few months?

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

Haven't layed on a leesa but I know they're popular and well regarded. Wirecutter has a long article reviewing the more popular mattresses and picked leesa as their favorite.

That being said, we're about to get a new mattress and I have been able to lay on a casper and a tuft and needle and personally like the tuft and needle a lot more.

The casper is too soft and bouncy for my preferences, but that my be what some people are after.

Jaybird X3 wireless headphones.

Have been listening to audio books and music way more now. Wired headphones are just a pain, they get tangled, are awkward to get from pocket to ears in a way that makes the phone still usable.

Also, being by my bed, i can use them at night when the girlfriend is asleep

+1 to wireless headphones. Got a pair recently an think they're great.

Only downside is forgetting to charge them, then having them die while when I'm walking to work, so I've been carrying a cheap wired earbuds in my bag for emergencies.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

i got this sleep headphone band a few months ago and really does help amazingly. i listen to music (or sometimes podcasts or white noise) to fall asleep anyway, and these just make it easier, comfortable. cannot recommend them enough

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

For ~15 years or so I would basically only wear designer jeans because I thought I was too cool for cheap pants. Well I finally realized how dumb that was and I recently discovered these guys:
Comfort flex waist jeans
They are by far the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn, look nice enough and come in any size you can imagine - even 35x34 which I can never find anywhere.
Oh, and they are only $25!
Love them.

Do you know if there's a wireless version?

I've been wanting something like this for a while but I'd end up choking myself with the wire b/c of the tossing/turning I do when sleeping.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

oh yeah, duh, i have the bluetooth ones for sure. i wanna say it was like $70/80 but i had a discount code from a podcast called "sleep with me", which is a podcast to help you fall asleep.

Yeti cups are terrific! I have several and have to be careful not to put coffee in one while it is still too hot to drink. If I do, it will still be too hot to drink for an hour or two.

This thing:



The snap piece over the mouth is pretty LOL and I literally have never used it, but man this hat rules on cold days. I think it's under $20 on amazon now. (I am not some shill for them or anything).

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

I meant to have the instant pot in my list. I've used it maybe 10 times and have been impressed all but one. I think that one was a fluke because I suck at cooking and I tried to cut corners on the directions.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

Just quit on my Aeropress, tired of the hassle. Just bought an cheapo Amazon drip machine for 15 bucks and lovin' it. Stylish design too, all sleek and black.

Also got a white noise machine from Big Red Rooster for 19, not that wild about it. Sounds sound too synthetic for my discerning ear.

Next time, buy a Google Home Mini ($29 at Christmas) and ask it to play one of 20 various white noises. Along with the zillion other things it does.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

kioshk, you could try the LectroFan. i think you would like some of the 'fan noises' it has, as opposed to the white noise options. it should be easy to return if you aren't happy, and there seems to be a coupon available at the moment.

Just got our Casper--its an updated version of the original (not the hybrid model). Some reinforced areas around the shoulder and hip areas (plus the feet but thats just so when you rotate NOT FLIP you still get shoulder support).

We based off consumer reports and some websites, plus our mall has a showroom store so got to test which was nice. We also got a pair of pillows.

So far so good, slept well, my bony shoulder and hips felt good, leaned/sat up to watch a game. I'm a side/stomach sleeper-I use a body pillow to end up somewhere in between. A little rotator cuff irritation so hard to put my arm above my head to sleep, have to lay directly on it these days.YMMV

Thanks for bumping danspartan- we need to get this thread rolling again.

Fellas, do yourself a favor and get a pair of these for the boys. They have a pocket that prevents batwing and the lightweight material is very breathable.
