Retail is for losers!

  • MTM 26CC Petrol Leaf Blower

    I bought this MTM 2 stroke leaf blower as an impulse buy and it was well worth it. I needed a leaf blower to clean out the autumn leaves in my farm machinery shed (I can't sweep in there, too much junk!), and after doing 10 minutes research, I decided ...

  • Pen Rod fishing pole

    I purchased this cute little fishing rod a few weeks ago to take with me on my motorbike. The Pen Rod easily into my topbox or backpack, and is surprisingly good for such an inexpensive thing. I've also got a larger collapsable Shimano rod, but it's just a little bit ...

  • Q&Q A164-205 watch

    The Q&Q A164-205 (in both white and black) is currently going for some ridiculously good prices on eBay. Q&Q are a sub brand of Citizen, and use the Japanese made Moyota quartz movement. They have lots of discontinued models that have flooded the market and are going for prices similar ...

  • Buying seeds online

    I've given up buying seeds at my local nursery. They only have brand name seeds, and they have a very boring selection. For the last couple of years I've been buying all my vegetable seeds online, from organic/heirloom suppliers. I save seeds every year, so once I buy a packet ...

  • OLFA circle cutter – finally I can cut perfect circles!

    I recently purchased an OLFA circle cutter (CMP-1 model) for making my own hiking stoves from drink cans. It's an incredibly useful little tool that I've ended up using for lots of other DIY/hobby jobs. It works in a similar way to a traditional compass, but it has 90 degree ...

  • Sipik SK68 – awesome budget flashlight

    I love torches/flashlights. I'm a camper, a shooter, and a cyclist- so I get to seriously test out all the torches I buy. My current favourite *value for money* torch is the Sipik SK68. It has a Cree XR-E Q5 emitter, has a zooming (collimating) lens, tailstands, and can use ...

  • Vango Banshee vs Vango Blade

    The Vango Banshee 200 and the Vango Blade 200 are very similar tents. They're both 2 man (in reality 1 man + some gear), both have 5000mm hydroscopic head flysheets and 6000mm rated waterproof groundsheets, and both have roughly the same amount of room inside - which isn't much. They're ...

  • Perth Mint bullion

    If you're interested in investing in physical bullion, either silver or gold - then your first stop should be Perth Mint bullion. If you can't make it to Perth in person to collect your bullion, you can easily buy Perth Mint bullion online. Perth Mint produce various forms of bullion, ...

  • Powertech 5in1 jump starter

    The Powertech 5 in 1 jump starter is branded under countless names around the world, the only difference being the sticker on the front, and the inverter voltage... but when it comes down to it, they're all the same - cheap and nasty Chinese jump starters with plenty of bells ...

  • Cheap corded landline telephone

    Every time the power goes off I kick myself for not having a standard corded telephone in the house. All my phones are cordless, and DO NOT WORK when the power is out. I figured that in an emergency storm or bushfire situation, I may seriously want to make a ...
