  1. We couldn’t pass up the $33 Fire deal and ended up buying one for each of the kids.

    Maybe now they’ll leave my new Lenovo alone.

    I got the $59 Fire deal. It’ll be here today.

    • I started to order the 7-incher for my mother but once I spec’ed it to 16GB it was $5 away from the 8-incher. Found a nice case for $7, too.

      They had nice deals.
      I covered all but 3 of my xmas list.

  3. I got the dot! I also bought a smart plug so that she can turn the lights on and off for me. I arrived home after dark last night and was able to turn the lights on well before I walked into the living room. It’s very cool!
