    It's tempting, but I'm sticking to Hue bulbs. I went off-piste with some E14 Hue-compatible bulbs a bit back (before there were E14 Hues available) and whilst they were fine, they didn't have quite the range of brightness as Hue (or darkness rather), sometimes buzzed when they were at min brightness and to update them had to be removed from Hue, re-paired with their own bridge, updated, removed and then re-paired with the Hue bridge. All of these seem like relatively minor things, but compared to full first-party hue it's night and day.

    Panasonic EX700 50" TV from John Lewis (was same price everywhere and could take home that day)
    Bosch 18v 4.0a batteries from Amazon down to £25 so I bought 4 :) absolute bargain.
    New wedding ring for the misses as she lost it.
    Amazon Echo (for my dad)
    GHDs for the Misses.
    Bosch 18v SDS drill
    Various Christmas presents

    Another bike (so 6 now). Bought that from a chap on Facebook. Then I bought some parts in the BF sale.

    Nothing. There was nothing I wanted or needed.

    use camelcamelcamel.com to track prices on Amazon and buy when it gets reduced. Simples.

    Found most black friday deals to be little to no cost saving compared to earlier this year.

    Cross-post from here. Not all of this was on offer...

    Nitecore D2 charger - my trusty old i2 popped a cap and I no longer have spare caps about the place... Not buying a pack of capacitors for one job! (and besides, there might be other faults besides just a blown electrolytic cap...)

    Hue dimmer switch/remote, because using my phone is just too much effort...

    VM275T camera/5.8GHz VTX combo - this thing is tiny... seriously tiny!

    I got one of those played around with it then returned it.

    Only Black Friday deal was to pick up some power-line 1200 passthroughs for £30.

    For us, it's £1000+ worth of "grown up" stuff:
    -Baby buggy travel system
    -Cotbed and drawer changing unit
    -about £300 worth of baby cloth for first 3-6 months

    All very grown up for me...... I'd have preferred to spend it on a 7700K upgrade and that £350 Oculus..... but responsibilities :eeek:

    Kids are expensive. Babies are super-expensive.

    They start off really expensive, get slightly cheaper for a few years and then get more and more expensive from then on. :(
