Some dude things I love that I've gotten from Amazon (MVS links are already embedded, just click the photos):


Image
Philips Norelco Multigroom All-In-One Series 3000, 13 Attachment Trimmer

I've had this for a year and a half, and it's small, quality trimmer. It holds a charge longer than a month (non-daily use). For $19.99 it's a no-brainer.

Image
Chemical Guys Professional Grade Premium Microfiber Towel, 6-pack

Like the trimmer, I've had these 1.5 years, and they're still great. I wash them and they're ready to go.


Image
Natural Shoe Deodorizer Spray, Foot Odor Eliminator and Air Freshener

I tried sprays, powders and black magic chanting. Nothing killed shoe odor in my sneakers and boots. Nothing. Then I tried this... and it works. Plus, I've used maybe 1/3 in the 2 years I've had it. It's uncanny. Works on car odors also. I spray it on the carpet.

Is there a similar link for us in the UK/EU who wish to support the site somehow? Cant be the only one who's partner spends half their waking lives browsing Amazon.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07PHPX2X9/ ... 10f68d1461

I don't yet know how to do a general link, only specific... to a product. So please use that if you're in the UK. (I know an Alexa product is probably not what you're looking for. From there, just search/find what you need.)

Amazon.co.uk says the first three purchases are for validation only, and the fourth will count. So it'll be a few days or weeks until I know if it's working.

Thanks for asking, Cookeh! (Happy 1 year MVS membership anniversary!)

Sorel - Men's Madson Chukka Waterproof Boots

I just today re-ordered these durable Sorel brand boots. My last pair I got in October 2016, and I wore them every day until last week. Incredibly durable, good for snow/rain, good looking enough for anything casual. I'm a same shoe every day guy, and these are it. I love them.

Plus, now they're blowing them out for $125 because it's "end of season". In 2016 I paid $180.



Image
Homax 5860 2-Piece Caulking Tools, Smoother and Remover

Really nice caulk stripping tool in this set. The caulk putter-downer I can do as well as with my finger. The stripper's where it's at. Not for heavy duty uneven/grout stripping.



Image
Car Tire Inflator, Air Compressor Pump, 12V DC Portable Automotive Air Pump up to 120 PSI, Digital LCD Display and Emergency Led Lighting for Car

I'm a huge fan of these inexpensive tire inflators. This one is digital, and mine accurate to +/- 1 PSI. I keep it in my car. Plus, you can set it to the PSI you want and it stops when it's met (!).

Anyone read "The Stone Man"?

https://www.amazon.com/Stone-Man-Scienc ... B00AHJIJF2

I liked it. Good read. Good ending. The POV(s) from the storyteller(s) were well done.
