Albeit we don’t like to spend our money on many things, there are a few items that we really would recommend. Here are a few affiliate links that you could use to buy the various items. It does not cost you anything extra, and we can earn a bit on the side to keep the hosting costs in reign 🙂 So here is the “recommended by us” section. Many thanks in advance!
Recommended by Us
The following items we have at home and we would buy again in a heartbeat if they would break or get lost. In short, we like them a lot, you might too!
Here are a few books that we (well Mrs CF) has read and liked, or at least got some new ideas from.
Because we do a lot more cooking we decided to spent some money on good kitchen equipment. This stuff is really expensive, but so worth the money! We have the large Magimix 5200XL and that thing is amazing! The power blender is also used daily for smoothies and such. We use the Mini one for grinding of nuts and seeds. For example cashews, which we add to a spinach pasta, makes it very creamy! This stuff is super sturdy, their customer service is generally good and it should last you a very long time.
Outdoor & Sports
Before we had our kid, we did lots of hiking and workouts. Here are some of the things we use(d). Again, we don’t mind to spend a bit of money if it’s making our life more comfortable (like the Deuter packpacks) or fun (like the GPS sport watches). I still have the Northface Borealis backpack, I’ve only managed to destroy 1 in the past 15 years. Mind you, the water proof lining will start to flake after about 8-10 years. That being said, I will buy one again in a heartbeat.
