Equipment, photos, equipment, baby - our list of models

Since we are sometimes asked about certainthings, then I decided to put a list of what we use here. And then he lies with me in Evernote and does not bring any benefit, and I, in any case, always write down all the models so that I can quickly find what I already bought, for advice to friends or re-purchase, it is very convenient. Of course, something here is already outdated and not for sale, but most of the things are still in stores.

All products, especially appliances, I choose with a specialthoroughness. And it does not matter, this kettle is for 800 rubles, or a macbook for 50 thousand. It so happened that I can’t do otherwise, be sure to read the reviews and compare. Therefore, for many years no one gives me anything without my knowledge, they simply do not guess. On the other hand, I do not consider myself a guru either, especially the requirements and budgets are different for everyone. Nevertheless, I can recommend all of the above to purchase, since we use it ourselves and almost never have to change something.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
