One red IRK bag
Several sheets of wall stickers including “BORN Chic” in huge letters
A packet of mosquito repellent wrist bands
A universal travel adapter (no transformer)
Six TrackRs (Tradition!)
YES, EXACTLY! My gosh, even a pile by the curb with a cardboard sign saying FREE would have it gone in a heartbeat, AND you’d save time and gas money of having to bring it anywhere. THAT sounds like a WIN WIN to me!
Huh. I guess I can consider myself fortunate on this round. So far, I haven’t seen an IRK that I’d have wanted more than the one I got, even though it had six more TrackRs. (But at least there weren’t any iPhone6 cases…)
I was thinking these would be the last of the year irks, which are usually really good. So if that’s what all of them are gonna be like, let hope there another mehathon before the end of the year. but for regular price bc I’m spending another $50.
I went back and forth on buying this. I thought I was really missing out. Glad I saved my cash for something else. Amazon has a good deal on 3 mushroom grow kits. I can buy them and still have $10 left over.
@heartwoman Ooh, can you send/pm the link? I’ve always wanted to get easy grow kits to grow fresh mushrooms to cook at home but they seem so expensive for multiple diff types of mushrooms if you want to make a variety mushroom skewer or something.
How did you get yours so early? I’m 30 minutes away from the warehouse and mine just shipped yesterday. At least other stuff is getting here fast. Got the Battery car jump start thing for Bro-in-law yesterday.
@Lynnerizer A couple of my best purchases so far are a Blue Yeticaster Professional Broadcast Bundle with Yeti USB Microphone, Radius III Shockmount, and Compass Boom Arm – BLACKOUT in opened retail package. Retail:$199.99; I bought it for $27.00!! (It only had a small nick on the boom arm).
Then I got a Dell Ultrasharp U2719DX 27-Inch WQHD 2560x1440 Resolution IPS Monitor with Infinity Edge Bezels, Black listed as “Tested and works! Brand New!” Listed on Amazon at $489.15; I got it for $89.00!! Works Great! (I’m using it right now! )
$50.00 Irk… Yep… Instant regret…
6 Cuisinart stainless straws
1 Professional skin care system - face scrubber
1.Box KN95 masks
1 Quirky wine bottle stopper & stabilizer
10 pack of Justice League socks
1 pack of dark green Meltables
& 1 blue instant regret bag
meh… this one was all regret. I wanted the excitement of opening it and getting useless junk items. Package was shipped as is - the label is on the other side of the box. IRK bag was inside. I guess I still got useless junk, but it was literally just the one item. I guess I will see if I can resell because I already have an ice cream maker I don’t use.
@spoole2020 Check inside the box carefully-they tend to stuff other stuff in the box. Got a vaccum in its original box inside a cardboard box with a bag and a few throwins and checked inside the vaccum box to see if it was new and found another IRK bag plus a few throw in items. Looks like the vacuum box was returned as someone didn’t know it was their IRK. So check completely inside the box.
Mine was terrible, 2 car micro usb chargers, 2 12 volt usb A ports, the red bag, a remote neck massager and a beat up small canister set that has something spilled all over one of them. Meh, you magnificent bastards, well played.
Woo Hoo! Thanks guys. I didn’t bite for the IRK, though I was tempted. And no, I have no regrets! And no cheap nowoven IRK bag either.
I decided that I have enough stuff and the IRK contents would most likely be stuff* rather than things**. So I passed. The gamble, you see, on an IRK is that you will be lucky and get more things than stuff. A wager with the Devil, or in this case, the capricious packers in the Meh warehouse.
Now I can go to webstrauntstore.com and buy fifty bucks of pasta of my choice in 20-lb packages, put it in an older IRK bag and be happy. Perfect.
Then the only regret will be the 10-lbs, I’ll gain from eating that much pasta!
OTH, hey, wait a minute. Do I REALLY need 40 lbs of pasta?
Nope. Sure don’t.
So, I’m a double winner! I didn’t blow fifty bucks. I didn’t by 40 lbs of pasta and then try to explain to the wife why we need that amount of noods.
*Stuff – that belong to someone else and have no value.
**Things – that which belong and have value to you.
Box arrived yesterday along with ninja foodie I ordered.
Red irk bag
Used? Neck fan, no charger but it works
Shoes with useless zipper. My size, yay!
Jogger pants, not my size, will be donated
Wireless headphones, don’t know what I’ll do with those. overall, not a bad irk.
OH YUM, have fun with your new Ninja foodie!
To bad those pants don’t fit, if they’re the Members Only brand they’re wicked comfy! The TV wireless headphones, are they different than regular ones? I have trouble hearing our TV because I have the air conditioner humming right next to my head. Yes, 24/7 365 days a year, don’t ask! After I read up on them I might be interested in buying them from you if you’re interested.
@Lynnerizer I am hoping the ninja foodie can replace my air fryer and also I do not have an instapot so maybe it can be two things in one. I don’t use headphones so I don’t know how they work. Maybe like how casting from your phone works for videos?
@ironcheftoni@Lynnerizer I LOVE MY NINJA FOODIE. At Thanksgiving I had to make a turkey, ham, and pies. I put the ham in the foodie- pressure cooked it for a bit then added glaze and hit it with the air fryer. It was perfect. And it makes a mean chicken- pressure cook then air fry to crisp it.
I agree, the Foodi is a wondrous device. I like how you can pressure-cook something and then it will stay warm for 12 hours afterwards! Great if you want to start a pot of beans before going to bed, for instance. It’s also great for reheating a small portion with the air-fryer or broiler, especially in the summer when you don’t want to use the oven. And it works very well as a slow-cooker, so it can replace that, too.
Pretty regretful.Someday I’ll learn that if there is nothing I want to buy from the site, there’s nothing they can give me that I’d want.
Red Irk Bag
2 screen protectors for an Iphone x that I don’t have
Sheets for a king size bed that I don’t have
2 Sacred Life essential oils “Pain Kit”-No thanks
Instacharge Power bank - Ok, nice to have these around
Eye am… eye shadow palette - no thanks
2 pack universal car chargers - someone might use them
Arrived today along with the new Foodi. I was a bit concerned when I picked it up because it was light and the tape on the top was loose. But hey - it was free and it didn’t contain any pasta, so I was going to be okay with it. Anything I didn’t need could go on the next trip to Goodwill. Contents:
Nice red Irk bag. (Keep!)
Oils. (I’ll find a use for them somewhere.)
Screen protector, unopened. (Will donate)
Clawz! I love Clawz. (Not my size, so will donate.)
Set of Lotus shopping bags. (I love these and will use.)
I’m happy with this, though I might be unhappy if I had paid $50 for it. (Which would never happen.)
@callow Around here, reusable bags confuse the cashiers even in stores where they sell the bags. Half of the time they still insist on loading stuff into plastic bags, which they hand to me to put into my bags. Sigh. It’s a good thing that my grocery store recycles plastic bags. I bring them all back along with bags from other places stuffed inside, as long as they are all the same kind of plastic.
The Lotus bags seem like they would be easier to use with the rods removed, especially the insulated ones. I don’t know how much I will like the ones with mesh bottoms or how well they will hold up. The ones I use now all have solid bottoms and hold up well when loaded with heavy stuff.
Whoo boy. This is easily the worst one I’ve gotten. All that was in my box was four screen protectors for the same old phone, and a returned juicer that doesn’t even turn on. (Well, and the navy blue Meh bag.) Sucks that this was one such a pricey IRK. I remember when what you got was at least close to what you paid. Even at full price for a current phone, these four screen protectors aren’t worth close to fifty bucks.
@heyitslauren Definitely! The book has been in my saved cart at Amazon for 3 years… waiting for the price to drop below $35, or see if it ever gets printed in paperback. When I saw it in the box, I couldn’t believe it! Also, as a crafter, I go through a lot of acrylic paints, which I’ve purchased at least once from Meh. The rest got snapped up by other adults in the household - everything worked, everyone is happy. Spent $110 pre-tax, so… Just waiting on the refund!
@sammydog01 yes, but it appeared to be either a $50 version of irk, meaning more or better than a traditional, and then you would be rewarded with it for free of you spent $100 in the mehathon. I didn’t see anything or even consider that if you bought it and didn’t qualify for the $100 spend then you would be screwed over with a $50 regular irk…I assumed instead you just paid for it. But didn’t at all think it was a regular $10 irk marked up to $50. Even the grab bag that was sold on sidedeal a few weeks ago was at least value appropriate. This just feels like a scam instead of fun gambling this time.
@scilynt You thought they were giving out fifty plus dollars of merchandise with a hundred dollar purchase of stuff that was already bargain priced? They may be crazy but they’re not stupid.
@sammydog01 it’s pretty much what they do with $10 irks . And it was supposed to be a xmas thing, I thought.
Yeah I’m dumb for paying $50 for dollar store crap that’s barely worth the $10 price but still feel pretty scammed for the first time ever on meh. Every other time I knew generally what I was getting for my money/gamble. This time I feel like it was suggested they were buying “premium IRKs” with higher price, limited supply and sold special on sidedeal.
Maybe I’m the only idiot? Am I the only one that felt deceived by it? I don’t know…
I wasn’t expecting anything special out of this IRK, OR the entire mehrathon. My understanding wasn’t the same as yours. I figured it was just like any other IRK, you take your chance at possibly getting one of the few that are REALLY spectacular OR one filled with nothing but BIG TIME REGRET, and maybe, JUST MAYBE you’ll land one that’s somewhere in-between! You know, that mediocre, ho hum, run of the mill IRK that you watch everyone in the household scurry off with it’s contents. YEAH, those are sweet spot IRK’s that you really can’t complain about!
My irk was all clothes
2 -4x cardigan robes by fruit of the loom seek no further
M -members only flannel
Size 2- Neiman Marcus pants
Size 24 -Neiman Marcus pants
Black irk bag
Regret was fast and lingers.
This was a $50 irk for me bc I didn’t see anything I really needed (trying not to buy useless stuff, actually trying to get rid of said useless stuff). I knew I was taking a chance but no matter what wasn’t gonna be sour about it bc that’s how the games played. I’ve gotten my fair share of regrettable irks. I’m happy with mine with the exception of the missing irk bag. I got
Mia k purse, black definitely like a lot. I’m a purse whole and am always rotating them.
Get into keto drink-Xmas gift for family irk pile
Blue sports bra L/XL hopefully it will fit me
Medium tank should fit me
Pain oils- Xmas family pile
Kiwi botanicals brightening eye cream and brightening honey melt- mom really liked cream that came from morningsave mystery box so she might like this.
No bagmy neighbors and family have taken all mine bc they love them so I really need more.
Christmas family vacation is my favorite Christmas movie. I saw the doll and had to get it. You pull the string and he says a bunch of different phrases from the movie too. Another really good Christmas movie is the ref with Dennis Leary and Kevin spacey.
Looks like the overwhelming consensus is that this IRK was the most irksome of them all. I am inclined to agree, though I do appreciate the fact that it was technically free if I consider the other stuff I got during the mehrathon. (even though I likely wouldn’t have gotten any of it if not for the irk “deal”).
In my box, aside from the wicked-awesome red tote (I have three of these tote bags now, and I am so very happy about that) I got:
A pair of women’s pj pants (my gf says thanks)
An LED light therapy mask (whatever that is, gf says no-thanks)
4-pack of metal straws (ok, I guess.)
5x5 of the little button batteries.
I don’t have any immediate use for the button batteries, but I guess they’re nice to have on hand. (Insert watch-related pun here)
GF is happy with the pants, and I suppose the batteries will be worth it in the long-term. The straws and the mask I perhaps can find someone to gift them to for Christmas. So I guess I can call it a win in the end.
But my last box was definitely much better. $10 for a projector and two screens, pants, and a shirt (GF says thanks)
-olivia & co aromatherapy gift set
-bamboo utensils 5 count
-2x tzumi DC charge pack (micro usb)
-DAY1 massage fitness roller with bag
-2x iphone x screen protectors (the only thing I won’t use)
-black IRK bag
My first ever irk, I’ve never been able to get one. I’ve also only gotten one woot boc back it then day when it was something like this irk when anyone could get one.
1 irk bag, blue or red, I’d have to look again.
1 rotating popcorn maker.
1 bathroom caddy for a straightener.
1 electric groomer.
And 1 tracker.
Annnnd it’s here. And I’m definitely full of regrets.
1 MKF purse in a pale blue, which is the best thing in the box.
1 pair of blue shorts in size 34.
1 youth unisex dri-fit shirt (M)
1 youth unisex dri-fit shorts (M)
1 beige underwire bra in 38B
1 red IRK bag
This will be my first irk. Never been fast enough to get a real one. It hasn’t come yet. Was “supposed” to be here today. I’ve read all these people’s irk box regrets tonight. I’m at the conclusion before seeing it that my first irk will probably be my last. I love a surprise. But if there is zero I can use it will be disappointing, or some might say, regretful. It would be cool to get a purse or pjs or knives. Or really anything I or someone I know can use. The good news is that I’m a big donate person. And I don’t like to go with a little bit. I fill up the car. So this irk may help me clear out some clutter! My husband will be delighted! Yes, let’s call that the bright side!
@dark54555@Star2236 Well, you could get up to three, but they’d refund only one, IF you reached the $100 level. I’d be bummed if I’d spent $50x2 for that haul - but I resisted the temptation to get anything at all Monday, so I’m feeling pretty relieved right now.
1 Xterity 3.0 Women’s Tank still in original package
1 BCBGMAXAZRIA sports bra, size M, still in original package
1 Hum smart battery powered toothbrush kit, unused (hooray!)
1 Now Solutions Ultrasonic oil diffuser
1 Helps Digest tea box
1 red Meh bag
Due to a hiccup, I ended up only buying 23 dollars of Meh stuff and the last purchase didn’t go through (the roomba, I actually like the things and this was a lidar version, if a bit weak) So this bag cost me $50
1x Digital antenna (for a household that only does games on TVs)
1x rubber boots size 10 (no one can fit into these)
1x Purse/wallet combo from Malibu Skye (maybe this can at least be gifted?)
Overall a complete wipeout for 10x the price of a normal IRK. So much for the “higher floor” theory, maybe the blessing is I’m disappointed enough to be sorta done with the theory.
If I cancel my membership for 10 months it’ll sorta be like it is free so long as I don’t buy anything right?
I see a ton of the RTrackers in there, those are actually useless at this point because the site went down and out of business. No website means no login so even if you can find an old APK it won’t function on your phone.
@Lynnerizer I know, right?! Honestly I’m pretty happy with it. The anesthetician tools are kick starting my facial care routine again, which has fully dropped off when Covid came around and I stopped leaving the house. The diffuser is nice too. I have a couple of them at this point, butt they’re both plastic so I’ll take it. It was very self care themed!
Yeah it’s nice when you get kind of a theme going on in your package. Well… as long as it’s a theme you’re into! Even the cup holders are useful, if not for you then someone else can always use them!
My first IRK. I wish I had more regret because now I’m going to have a hard time resisting next time (even though I know better). I have scored several appropriately crappy BOCs over the years so I am pretty immune to those but my first IRK turned out surprisingly well:
-1 plain black V neck tee in exactly my size. I mean, if I had been given a choice of shirts to choose from, I can pretty much guarantee I would have chosen this one, so I’m pleased.
-1 pair of blue vinyl espadrille type shoes with a zip-up toe box. Not my size. Nor is it the size of either of my daughters or my mother. I’m sure someone in my local “Spend Nothing” group will be happy to take them off my hands.
-1 Cortex Air Blade hair dryer. I don’t currently have a hair dryer because my occasions for using one are rare, but I do often think about getting one for those few times that I do need them. Having one show up in my IRK was serendipitous. No idea whether it’s worth the $50-150 price range I’m seeing them online for, but for zapping my hair enough to keep it from freezing when I venture out in the cold, it will do fine.
I got one of the best ones, I’m sure. It came in a seemingly really nice large piece of Olympia Harmony luggage and a bunch of stuff inside. It included the IRK bag, a foldable kids’ scooter, some sappy peelable wall art somebody I know will appreciate, a random 40C bra, and a bunch of other stuff I’m blanking on. Will try to remember to properly chronicle it all when I’m home later tonight.
Red IRK Bag
NWT medium black and white women’s “Nike” Dri-Fit football/soccer jacket
NWT medium black women’s “Nike” Dri-Fit football/soccer shirt
NWT medium slim fit black youth unisex “Nike” football/soccer pants
NWT size 36 black Wicked Stitch men’s cargo shorts
Low voltage black Paradise LED landscape flood light (4-pack) - box is beat up, but appears new
Terrible terrible terrible. Instant regret indeed. Got two wrinkled “Greek life” word art posters, two unicorn poop putty kits, two rolls of tape, and two cookie cutters (plastic).
All dollar-store level objects. Been burned by Meh/sidedeal a lot this year, (expired / rancid food most atrociously) this is the icing on the cake , they were better when they were $5. I guess I finally cancel my VMP and recoup some of these Ls
I got a pants hanger and off brand electric toothbrush, along with earbuds and a women’s shirt. Got the IRK bag, which might be more useful than the rest. Thanks, Meh - I always enjoy the anticipation even if i can’t use any of the items I receive.
Wondering if bribery would yield one of the ice cream makers, knife sets, etc, because I have about $5 left after Christmas shopping is complete and I am not above that.
Well, I’m never ordering a $50 IRK again. Regret doesn’t even begin to describe it. Though In that sense I got what I paid for.
Black IRK bag
Woman’s Seek No Further fruit of the loom sexy cardigan in size 4X
Women’s maidenform sport leggings in size S
Two Men’s TKO baselayer shirts in size S
2 packs of generic white KN95 masks from China.
There’s no way this stuff was even $50 retail, much less what it’s really marked down for daily. This site used to be better. This is a disappointment even for a regret kit
It reads and looks like they were cleaning stuff out and that’s what you all got in your IRK’s and Meh got bank at $50 or free with $100 purchase. If I didn’t know better I would think it was April Fools. I thought is sounded too good to be true. Glad I held back. Sorrys to a lot of you.
@sunnysideup22 That was my thought as well. I did not let the “free IRK with $99.99 purchase” thing influence me. OTOH, when the Ninja Transformer came up, I figured “what the hell, grab the IRK too.” And when it arrived, very briefly, I thought I might have at last hit the jackpot. But no, I got Pasta. It’s useful, at least. TrackRs? Not so much.
Man would have loved to get the pasta… but mine wasn’t terrible, just meh.
1 set of towels - which I’ll donate to my vet, they always need them.
2 cigarette usb charger things
2 usb-a battery chargers
2 sets of essential oils
1 eye shadow set
1 box of kingart acrylic paint
1 red irk bag
I can’t complain (not that I would anyway because it’s literally listed as regretful). I definitely got more than I paid for, which was nothing.
1 red Meh bag
1 box of 4 packs of functional tea
1 eyeshadow palette in peach
1 small women’s bright green polo shirt
1 Galaxy XXL mens shorts
1 large Galaxy mens sweatpants
I might have been more sad if I had paid $50 for it, but I wouldn’t have paid $50 for it. I didn’t think they were going to be anything extra special because they cost more. But as always, you never know.
Next time, no one will buy an IRK because of this time, and those that do will probably get something amazing, lol! That’s just the way Meh rolls.
@k4evryng If they just go back to the $10 pricing next time, there will be more than enough folks hitting “buy” to sell out the batches in a second or two. If they were to drop it to $5, the perceptible difference would be almost nil. But at $50, even as part of a “free if you also buy $X” deal, I would hope that they’d go begging. The problem is that there are people who don’t read the forums, and might be suffiently uninformed (and foolishly optimistic) about the reality of those IRKs that Meh will end up pissing off another small segment of their customer base.
This $50-or-free experiment should never be done again IMO.
@werehatrack yeah. There seemed to be a lot more confusion over it than I thought there should be, but that’s mostly because I’ve been here a while so I know what to expect. I do feel bad for those that didn’t because it was an expensive gamble.
I agree that this might not be a great repeat experiment. I’m sure the last thing Meh wants to do is piss off potential future customers…
@chinesedentist So we have:
-Olympia Harmony OF-5729 29" Black and Gold Expandable Large-Size Spinner luggage
-Blue IRK bag
-The very beautiful hardcover book Flour Lab by Adam Leonti and Katie Parla
-Ben Sherman all-purpose grooming set
-A random 40C bra
-SpaLife Coffee Break facial mask six pack
-A random flashlight (that was in a plain brown box).
-A small green bean bag thing. Honestly no idea what its story is.
-WallPops! “You Are My Home” 36 x 24 inch removable wall decal
-A blue kids’ foldable scooter
-Reliable OVO 150GT Travel Iron and Garment Steamer
-Style House Salon Quality Flat Iron Accessory Set
My best haul overall in my 17+ year history with both the previous site and this one, while still being mostly stuff I’ll re-gift/donate. A grooming set is actually something that was on my Christmas wish list this year so that was the most pleasant surprise.
I notoriously NEVER check luggage and don’t travel often, but this bag makes me want to change both of those things. (I won’t).
@chinesedentist Wow! That’s one of the best so far, in my opinion. The little green bag is a charcoal deodorizer thingie. Probably useful to put into luggage. Too bad the travel theme isn’t quite your style, but still excellent.
Your dog is cute, too!
Received and opened my IRK with trepidation. Pleasantly surprised
1 M Navy Blue 3 button short sleeves shirt by Galaxy NIP
1 Solar Post Light NIB
1 Impulse wireless Bluetooth headphones NIB
1 Now Solutions Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser NIB
1 Bosma Sentry Video Doorbell NIB
1 Navy Blue IRK bag
I would think if those things would have been bought separately they would have been at least $50. So still regrettable but not nearly the amount of regret I thought I’d have. Yay!
PS Have a pic, not sure how to post. I’ll figure it out.
Just opened my IRK and it indeed is a disappointment of monumental proportion–just as I had longed for. A ceramic garden light so poorly secured that a minor jostle in transit resulted in its demise. An exercise mammary restraint in size medium that my size S girlfriend may find useful (gentlemen–size S can infer a more direct sensory avenue to destination “O”). But, I did receive a hardwood cat floor scrubber that may be useful when my cat elects to deposit this week’s hairball production in various locales within my abode.
My conclusion with the IRK’s as a first time victim—you will not be christened an E-bay savant with your stash
Tis the season to be irked! My irk brought me a smirk! I received a movie projector, a movie screen, irk bag and a 15 inch mac pro laptop case, and a lantern style flashlight! Thanks! I would post my picture but dont know how, sorry!
Mine is supposed to be delivered today. FedEx stopped in front of my house…then eft again and delivered a package a few houses down. Waiting to see if the truck returns or if my neighbor texts me…the game is on.
@k4evryng they did another driveby, slowed down but did not stop. Now my tracking says on vehicle for delivery with an unknown date, delivery date is pending. I hate FedEx, but I hate UPS too. We shall see!!
@k4evryng@Kyeh my IRK went back from being out for delivery to the FedEx facility Dec 6. Dec 7 their system still showed at the FedEx facility, but they sent me an email saying they turned it over to Smart Post on Dec 3 . Today (Dec 8th) it shows back on the FedEx vehicle for delivery…we will see
First IRK- no regrets here! I was worried with some of the early reports - would I or wouldn’t I score 20# of pasta? With such low expectations, I was afraid to wait for Xmas to disappoint the Mrs. But it was an IRK-mas miracle! Headlining was a 9 cup KitchenAid food processor, $150+ retail) but the shirt fits, UV sanitizer will keep us healthy, and rubber stamps will keep idle hands busy. Plus, car USB chargers!
It was a day late and only had 4 items, but still good.
1 - blue bag
1 - pair of very long purple flowery socks
1 - pair of burgundy joggers size M (not shown, because I’m wearing them)
1 - 3” mattress topper size full. Now I don’t have a full size bed, but I’m sure I’ll find someone that does.
If I hadn’t just watched the episode of Shark Tank when they pitched the insect venom sucking thingy I wouldn’t have known what the heck you were talking about! All in all you got a decent box! YAY Meh, YAY YOU!
Mine was also suspiciously heavy, but instead of pasta, I got 1600 pre-moistened hand wipes, a deck of cards, phone car chargers, and a game. For 5 or 10-times the price of previous IRKs, this one was painfully disappointing.
I remember the excitement of getting that heavy box last mehrathon! And yes, it quickly vanished within seconds of seeing that same blue bag cloth! Lol
We’re still trying to find a container to keep them from drying out once they’re opened up. They should be useful though!
@Lynnerizer@PnkFld And I also got the handwipes, except mine came in the middle of the pandemic and weren’t even “expired” yet. I sold them on craigslist for $25 and the person buying them was thrilled as at the time retail they were about $60 or something. It just misses fitting in a 2 gallon zip lock (your big problem is them not drying out once you open them so without opening I tried to fit them in the ziplock. Fits but can’t close it. Opps.)
@Kidsandliz@PnkFld Just a few months ago they were selling on eBay for $50! I don’t think we can use them up that fast and I’m thinking they’ll dry out too. Last week someone in the buy nothing FB group had about 20 square buckets with lids that they were gifting but I missed it. They looked like those big yellow ones that Tidy Cat kitty litter comes in and I think it might’ve been a perfect fit for the wipes!
@Kyeh@Lynnerizer@PnkFld Or just split them between two large ziplocks. Unroll from the main roll and roll up as you unroll them. Do it over a bag or something so you don’t lose the liquid and can pour it back in. Once you have taken off enough the 2 gal or 2.5 gal or whatever it was should close.
@Kyeh@Lynnerizer@PnkFld Well I did have the advantage of trying to figure out what to do before and then decided I’d never use them all and sold it unopened. The person who bought it had cancer so it was a win win. My irk was paid for and she got a ton of these things cheap.
Other necessary things parents might know:
My sister learned if you break a cookie in half so the toddler has a cookie half in each hand they think they have more and don’t keep asking for another cookie despite having one. As a bonus they can’t pick up anything in stores as their hands are full and they value the cookie over whatever it was they wanted to handle.
I learned receipts for cooking humans from the internet (and how to shrink heads from the Cleveland History Museum as a kid - threatened my younger siblings with that). Anyway my kid is lucky she lived through her childhood. I told her at one point in her teen years there were good reasons why some species eat their young. She told me I hate to cook so I wouldn’t know how to cook her. I told her there was always the internet. I later printed those out and gave them to her. She was only partly sure I wasn’t serious.
Of course I also told her a number of other outrageous things like Mark Twain said when a kid turned 13 you put them in a pickle barrel (55 gal wood) and fed them through the knot hole; at 16 you seal up the knot hole; that he did not say when you took them out - clearly not yet. So she was used to comments like this (she also took warnings about behavior better this way so she heard shit like this a lot.).
Not a bad haul overall. I was annoyed with the required $100 minimum on Meh to get the refund, but thankfully my buddy wanted some of the dash cams which got me far closer to the frankly difficult-to-attain threshold.
@ryanbruce eyyy welcome to the tacklife vacuum gang! Customer service is non-existent for this company but I’ve learned a lot getting mine online and working. Let me know if you have any questions. I have now designated myself the Meh tacklife S10 vacuum sherpa
@ryanbruce Yeah when you said not bad overall I was thinking what the heck are they talking about, this guys got a darn good attitude! Lol Then I got to the rest of your story and saw the pic of your robo vac! GREAT SCORE!
@ryanbruce I can’t tell about servers but the documentation was not super helpful! I had a heck of a time getting it on my wifi. It would just try and try and fail. Turns out my router needed to be in WPA2-PSK[TKIP]. That’s my initial protip for you.
That’s interesting. I hadn’t picked up on that. I’m inked and got a mattress pad, too. I didn’t open the box yet to see what else was inside because I was saving that surprise for Christmas.
I passed on this, having spent $100 on a mystery gift bag from Lawn Fawn, guaranteed to be worth twice what you spent. (All profits were donated to a good cause.) It was, but I already had a bunch of what they sent, but I did get my money’s worth with the items I didn’t have.
I like the bag AND the paper, nice colors! I hadn’t heard of that Co before, love the donation thing. I got a couple of mystery boxes from other places too. Passed on the IRK this time. One was from from Until Gone and another from Shark Tank which I’m waiting on. Didn’t get anything so great for myself but lots of stocking stuffers for some lucky little girl. I just love a good mystery box!
Keeping with the Ink Club trend I too got a mattress topper. Also got
Navy Irk bag
Hot/cold eye mask
Virmee smart watch
The way @sammydog01 raved about the topper I am tempted to try it on my bed even though its not the right size. If that doesn’t work it will replace my much crappier topper I have for sleeping in the back of the car during road trips.
Just found this (I don’t often look at the board). Paid the full $50 for mine with the idea that if I found $100 great.
Not really disappointed. Sorry no picture.
