Mumsnet inspired buys anyone?

On and off Mumsnet for years - losing passwords etc but a bit more organised now
Anyway, how much stuff do you buy after seeing stuff on Mumsnet?
In the last 4 weeks, I’ve bought a hush Tara dress - never heard of hush before but went to John Lewis to get one after good reviews here
Also bourjois lip pencil thing -looks like Clinique chubby stick - it’s fab!
Yesterday I whizzed into Aldi on way home for cauliflower rice and also picked up a swede to do the whistling swede thing I’d seen on frozen mash thread
Just curious what other people have been inspired to buy and was it good or not?

Well I bought frozen Mash today for the first time ever. People rave about it on here so for £1 I thought I'd try it...

Ruhrpott Tue 10-Oct-17 16:00:44

I got an insinkerator 3in1 Tap

Ruhrpott Tue 10-Oct-17 16:02:42

And I’ve just added frozen mash to my tesco order

My Instant Pot. Saw it recommended in a thread, then loads of people piled in to say how wonderful they were and before I knew it I was ordering one on Amazon.

Bloody marvellous invention.

abitoflight Tue 10-Oct-17 16:16:09

Ooh I’ll look at instant pot I have noticed it popping up too
I have an actifry - I could use cupboard space more fruitfully tbh

DJBaggySmalls Tue 10-Oct-17 16:19:07

We're considering an Actifry, and I bought a memory foam pillow which I hate as a pillow but use as a backrest when I want to sit up in bed.

Ruhrpott Tue 10-Oct-17 20:09:37

Oh yes instant pot. I got one of those too blush

Ruhrpott Tue 10-Oct-17 20:11:07

And the room thermostat thingy (Honeywell) that Pigletjohn recommends

ShotsFired Tue 10-Oct-17 20:14:41

I bought some zoflora.

Disgusting, chemically, headache-inducing stuff. I now dilute and sprinkle it outside to stop the cats pooing in the gravel and I can still smell it a mile off.

Noting as sensible as the above, but I did buy a hula hoop after a thread on here last week grin

I am still unbelievably rubbish at it, but I feel better for just doing it for a few minutes over the last few evenings and it turns out my tummy muscles are still there under all the wobbly bits... I've even begun to get a tiny bit of waist shape if I look really hard (disclaimer: that last statement might be positive thinking)

A karcher window vacuum cleaner thing. It is good, but I have to admit to only using it a handful of times

Calmanrose Tue 10-Oct-17 20:28:59

Instant pot. Zoflora. Amazon echo. Numerous clothes/make up. A diamond ring.
You lot are a bad influence

abitoflight Tue 10-Oct-17 21:28:00

Well at least zoflora has some use then! Reminds me of cold pub lips and very old aunties
A diamond ring is quite a different matter entirely
Love the echo - had it in cupboard for 2 months before got it out as I thought was just another useless dust collecting piece of crap that DH bought!
Was at friends house and she said ‘Alexa for a fart’ and Alexa did noise and in fact has 2 fart noises confused

Actually can somebody hurry up and find this years scarf. I bought the MN one years ago and need a new one

donajimena Wed 11-Oct-17 07:01:26

Footner. One of the many reasons why I will miss CatThiefKeith sad
Red knickers to wear under white dresses or trousers (much nicer than those beige ones)

dudsville Wed 11-Oct-17 07:05:09

Today I'm going to make the recipes for bean soup and flat bread posted on mn a few weeks back.

I missed this bit of advice. So you cannot see red through does that work?? Does this include bras too?

I do not have one pair of red underwear now I think about it. Loads of horrid beige though....

Veronicat Wed 11-Oct-17 07:26:09

The Hush ruched skirt, Nip + Fab skin care, hot cloth cleansers and some plum coated trousers from Tesco.
I keep meaning to order the footer stuff.

CrabappleCake Wed 11-Oct-17 07:37:13

How does the red underwear work?

I bought a Karcher window vac to hoover up condensation from the windows in the morning.

Wool duvet for the menopause.

abitoflight Wed 11-Oct-17 07:46:23

Re scarf: those folks on the style forum are amazing - how they can suggest dresses/boots for others so quickly!
Looking for red knickers now...

GetSchwifty Wed 11-Oct-17 07:47:49

A soap and glory foot file
Frozen sliced garlic

feckthemall Wed 11-Oct-17 07:57:23

Red knickers......tell me more pls

Callmegeoff Wed 11-Oct-17 08:01:42

A much bigger hamster cage, with a huge wheel. Hammy equivalent of the London eye 😂

schoolgaterebel Wed 11-Oct-17 09:35:01

Tweezerman tweezers
Heated clothes dryer

And...tinned potatoes (inspired by some thread and still in my grocery cupboard 18 months later!)

I want to but those Turkish towels everybody raves about
