A Keurig machine, and a trampoline. Truly life altering! The coffee adds warmth to my mornings, and the trampoline enables me to exercise and be outdoors in a fun way.

I also bought an adult scratch art book that is really relaxing to work on while listening to podcasts.

Oh - and the used books I bought for cheap at www.betterworldbooks.com have enabled me to make it through shabbosim.

I got that one for around the same price last year. I researched a lot of models and this seemed to be one of the best.

I actually bought a refurbished model from Amazon and it was about 450.
The roombas are about 1000, so it's all relative.
I usually spend way more than that on cleaning help per month, so I feel justified since I havent had any help in 2 months.

2 Lifetime 26" height adjustable folding tables to serve as desks for my kids.

They seem to be out of stock now but they were under $30 each when we bought them post Pesach . They fold up nicely and are really sturdy.

We'll b'ezras Hashem have many uses for them once the kids return to school (b'ezras Hashem bkarov biyameinu)

Many colors of acrylic paint and canvases. I never painted before. But I decided to do it one day and found painting to help me emotionally and it’s very therapeutic for me. My DH and children also enjoy it very much.
