One of the issues I have is that my now 2-year-old laptop's battery was reduced in capacity. So I bought a new one, but I bought the extra large laptop battery, so I have over 5 hours of battery life now. Better than the two I was getting.
Also, I bought pants. I need black or khaki pants to present (one of the precious BrainShare perks are the speaker shirts, a polo or button-down shirt.) and I have some but I bought more since they're kind of wearing out.
And I got a new suitcase for Christmas.
So, laptop battery, suitcase, pants. Salt Lake City, here we come!
