Should I buy a cheap "feather fill" comforter online? So far I've only ever had lovely Cuddle Down comforters at home, but now am striking out on my own, and don't have the budget for lofty bedding right away. Will I even notice the difference in fill type, or thread count? I will always have a duvet cover over it... or is this a save-for-it item worth the wait? [more inside]

I'm going to Santa Fe, NM in late March. Where are the ski opportunities for dabblers? Where are some cool places to hang out, where locals visit. What's the hottest place to eat without paying an arm and leg? What else might be worth doing other than the O'keefe Museum. Links would be cool if it's not too much trouble. [more inside]

For years I have been tossing all my loose change into a 3-gallon water cooler jug. Its almost full. It is not filtered for quarters to do laundry or car washes. How much $$ is in it? What's 3 gallons of change worth? A trip to Best Buy or to Europe?

Several weeks ago I bought a great orange cashmere scarf at Target for $25. It got stolen. Now I can't find the scarf at any of my local Target stores or on their website. Googling for orange cashmere scarves only turns up very expensive scarves. Are there any online merchants that might have this amazing scarf at such an affordable price?

Is there a cell phone equivalent to dpreview
? There seems to be plenty of user reviews and sites more interested in selling you phones, but I would like a more unbiased opinion with some actual testing/benchmarks/results.

Mrs. Mitheral would like to get some sleepwear like this
, or this
, or even this
for actually sleeping in. The problem is she's got shoulders like Gordie Howe
so all those thin strap jobs either just slip right down and off or twist around choking her. She's convinced that if she could find something similiar but with more tank top style straps it would work out. I've wasted more time than I like to think about cruising the women's wear stores at the mall and on line with no luck. Anyone got a recommendation to an online retailer with a product of the style I'm looking for? [more inside]

Where can I buy a Christmas tree in Boston? I moved to Boston in August and live in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood. In every other city I've lived in, there were Christmas Tree stands all over the place. So far, I've seen none. I want to buy a live tree, but where do I go? So far, all I've seen are the cut-your-own places far out of town. Any ideas?

I'd like to find a deluxe banana seat to put on this bike
- so deluxe it'll practically be a motorcyle seat. I'd like a lot of comfortable padding for a nice, easy ride, and a split-level / two-seat configuration, kind of like the seat on this thing
. It will be mounted on the bicycle seat post + sissy bars down to the rear dropouts. I am finding squat on eBay / Froogle. Any help?

It looks like we're going to need a new PC for the family business. Here's the catch: It absolutely has to be a major brand bought off the shelf from a major chain type retailer. It cannot be something we order online or over the phone, nor something that I or anyone else builds for us. [more inside]

I have been looking high and low (without luck) for this pair of sandals--I know they exist, because I saw someone wearing them before I became intent on getting a pair. Oh, how I wish I'd asked her where she got them!
It is a sort of boho-thong sandal with a flat ring that sits between your big and first toes. Thin cords make up the side straps. For a really crappy sketch, click here
. Pardon my drawing skills.
I would prefer a physical store (instant gratification, you know,) but online stores will satisfy my shoe-lust as well. I have googled the world over but have yet to come up with anything close enough.

I want to buy my son, who is turning six, a telescope for his birthday. I don't want to spend a fortune, but one site I looked at for advice said anything less than $300 is a piece of junk. Anyone have any advice (including specific models) on one I can by this budding astronomer for $100 or less?
