I buy organic soba noodles, Q Ginger, dog treats, Knudsen Recharge (like gatorade but with real fruit juice), Boost, Balance Bars. Things that are hard to find in Atlanta, or things that are heavy.

I buy a lot of food items from Amazon, especially on Subscribe and Save. They include Newman's Own Cinnamon Graham Alphabet cookies (half price of my local health food stores), Bran Cereal (much less than in supermarkets), and Bionaturae Organic Whole Peeled Tomatoes, 28.2 Ounce Tins (Pack of 12), which I like even better than San Marzanos (It's $29.24 for 12 with Subscribe and Save):

Also, I just purchased this spice mix:

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE.

Thanks for mentioning these. I'm almost out of the 2 cases of san marzano tomatoes I schlepped with me from Canada. This is a great price too.

I buy the McCanns Irish Oatmeal. I like it better than generic steel cut oats. I also get maple sugar and pure maple syrup. I get everything with subscribe and save and then cancel the subscription if I dont want to keep it.

I get quite a few grocery items via subscribe & save. Most are cheaper than I can buy locally and in some cases of "specialty" items are much fresher than in local stores where it may have been on the shelf for a long time.

I use a lot of panko crumbs and the Sushi Chef Panko (Japanese Bread Flakes), 8-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6) @ $18.56 is a great buy and these are the best of any brand I have tried - I have purchased many brands so have had plenty to compare.

I also get the Splenda/Sugar blends, both regular and brown. The brown sugar blend doesn't seem to ever get hard, unlike regular brown sugar.

I recently found a deal on a used ACMC tabletop temperer for $400 plus shipping. The seller had two of them, and as of a couple days ago, still had the other one. I had been tossing the idea of getting a new Chocovision Rev1 or Rev2 around when I found this, and it seemed like a better deal to me. I can't see my chocolate production ever outgrowing the ACMC, unlike the Rev. They also are, from what I understand, easy to fix, and all the part can be purchased online.

Anyway, if anyone is in the market for one, drop me a line and I will pass along the contact info for the seller. She shipped very quickly and packed well.

I have no relationship with the seller but thought I would pass along a good deal, and I have already taken the risk of buying from her (it was a CraigsList ad), and it worked out fine.

If this is an inappropriate post, please just delete, mods.

Id love to have their 'entry' IR gun, however Im not sure I could master the calibration on the surface reflectivity. doesnt that add a variable that can put a reasonable reading off by enough to be significant?

I've ordered several when they have had these sales in the past - for myself, for gifts, for donating to a specialized charity auction, etc.

It's a very good deal.
