Is it at least a smart coat with electronics pockets?

I bought a very nice Columbia coat at a steep discount for BF last year. Turned out to really come in handy given my move. Worth every penny.

Usually buy electronics but precious little I really wanted this year. Got a google home hub.

Picked up a pair of headphones (WH1000XM3) and a Nest thermostat. Interested to see how the Sony’s compare to my ATH-M50X. The Nest was a pure splurge as I have some friends who love theirs and it’ll force me to have a program and hopefully save me some money. Also picked up a wireless charging stand for my phone.

Loving the mouse! Thanks for the rec. One thing I didn't expect was the length of the cable -- 6 feet I think. Very handy. I also love the precision.

Even though I use laptops almost exclusively, I hate touchpads. I usually turn them off and use an actual mouse.

I will use it for some cascading upgrades -- it will replace a 500GB SSD in one machine, which will in turn replace a 240GB in another, which in turn will replace a 120 GB in another.

Just got back from my vacation & exam period. Ended up buying a Dell 27" 144hz 1440p gsync monitor from Best Buy for I think $350 on BF. So far it's been pretty great!
