Day 8- I'm not ready to  :surrender: yet, but I certainly feel a toothpick buying day is nearing.

You are doing great FB! :cheers:

A toothpick buying day sounds like a good idea :D

Thanks Vicman!  I should have made it a one week challenge, that's doable, two weeks will be interesting to see if I can stay the course.  :cheers:

Stay the course, FB!  Forget the pens and toothpicks!

Just checked...looks like I'd still be in:



...and looks like my last pause in daily activity was on Xmas day.  :whistle:

Carry on!

I know it's day 8, but day 7 had some extras.
I bought these two items as well as the Wenger Camo.
An Explorer marked as a Yeoman

Nice!
But you are disqualified I think :)
Or you could have bought 28 tweezers on day one :)

J/K you make the rules and the SAKs are awesome :gimme:

Apology accepted, I'm a total rule follower (when it comes to my challenges), so I suppose I was sensitive.  :cheers:

Thank you RR and Wspeed.
I found one that is similar on an ended auction.  It has a red LED and L.L. Bean on the other scale....so when it arrives I'll know if it is one of those.

I think that's exactly what it is. I have a user just like that red LED/LL Bean. Nice to see such a clean copy.  I don't think I've seen a black scaled MMC with the newer, white lites.  I do know that there are some white lites in the old scale style without the swinging battery door.

Nice find either way!  :like:
Mystery solved.  Dim red LED.  It doesn't have LL Bean on the back.  It's even in the wrong box.  Box is for a regular MiniChamp II.

It's day 9 and I didn't buy anything on day 8.  :facepalm:
I started watching some television last night, fell asleep, and didn't wake up until 1:04 a.m. on day 9.
My first thought was nooooooooooo!  Then my next thought was, okay, that's a little bit of a relief (financially and emotionally).

So, my record was 7 days.  I did find a few I really like.  I was only able to mark off one from my want to buy list, a SwissCard Nailcare.

My favorite purchase was this one:
