A Rebecca Minkoff handbag. I drooled over it online, but didn’t really like it that much in person.

gingerkitten:  The vitamix is AWESOME but it doesnt replace a nutribullet. the NB is great for single serving smoothies, Vitamix is too big for that. However for soups and other big jobs… the Vitamix makes a puree like butter.

TheGridMonster:  +1000

Seriously, I bought a fancy veggie mandalin, even bragged about it to Darling Husband. I’ve used it twice in a year. It’s a pain to clean and I might slice off my finger. I’ll stick with my knife.

Ukulele4You:  ughh right? Like it was not as user friendly as the commercials made it seem, either that or all the Furbies I got were idiots. 

 

ETA” It is entirely possible that Furbies are smart and I am infact the idiot. But I could never get them to do all the cool stuff they said they did.

Fitbit. I know that lots of people love it, but I think that after a month or two it becomes useless as you start to establish a routine that you know will earn you 10,000 steps.

I could not get mine to shut up. I ended up keeping it in the closet.

Isabelle663:  You need to be very clear with your profile. If you select every brand as something you’d be willing to receive you can get real cheap stuff. I made sure I researched evvery brand and didn’t subscribe to items like Elf, CoverGirl, etc. That’s not quality, to me. I get redicuslously expensive stuff! I also review and contqact customer service if I EVER get a product I said I had no interest in. It’s a learning curve, but I love Ipsy!

cmsgirl:  I’ve been thinking the same. Surely spiralled vegetables and chopped up cauliflower does not taste the same as pasta or rice!

EBAY MOISSANITE.

Although it’s pretty and all, I just don’t know why now I bought it. I’ll likely never get it set into anything. (had it since last summer)

I feel into the frenzy…..
