    vitamix or blendtec if price is no concern. omniblender if it is. i have an omni blender and i love the shit out of it. do not fuck around with cheap blenders, you will regret it because it will suck ass and you'll never use it and then you'll end up spending more money on an actual quality blender anyways.

    honestly my omni blender is my best purchase of the year so far out of anything i've bought in terms of cost vs benefit, how much i use it, how much better life is (0) etc

    googled omni blender $250 wat. I was thinking more like $80. Dem university budget constraints. Doing econ has made me understand why i buy shit more. When I got to uni pineapples and mangos were both 2 for a quid so I would buy them equally because my budget constraints were hitting dat der preference curve in the middle. Then one day mangos went up to 1.50 so I only rarely bought mangos and bought fuck loads of pineapples because my budget constraint had shifted being tangent to the preference curve at a different point. THEN TODAY pineapples also went up to 1.50 for 2 shifting my budget constrain back to the same angle, but closer to the origin so in theory i should buy the same ratio of pineapples to mangos as i did before, but in smaller quantities. Sadly im on the poverty time and not willing to spend 75p per mango or pineapple, but the fruit stall has started selling watermelon for a quid each, which is a cheaper source for my carbs. Watermelon is defo an inferior good though because I wouldn't eat that shit if I was rich.

    eating a litre of cottage cheese late afternoon was a bad idea, currently experiencing severe food coma. 4 espresso shots has done nothing to alleviate the problem. zzzzzzzz

    I feel like a dick now. I completely missed the question.

    But you pretty much nailed it on the head. I have good money management. And I run into some pretty good deals. I don't think I've bought anything in my current wardrobe at retail.

    I put "You received a payment for steroids!" on my paypal invoice to Charly and he didn't bat an eye... He probably sells drugz.

    For real though I see what you mean. Also if you have a small wardrobe with just expensive pieces it can be cheaper than a full wardrobe. I shouldn't have $700 aldens but I own three pairs of shoes.

    Took some time off for a trap strain to heal. Second day I come back it's bothering me again. Wtf. Anyone know what's up? Pain in my left trap. Can't hold any significant weight without it bothering me. Hurts during Rdls and front squats. Pull ups don't bother me, neither do back squats. Hurts when when I reach across my body with my right arm. Brachialis maybe?
