Quality bluetooth bookshelf speakers?

Hello sound enthusiasts, I recently had to get rid of two older Sonos 5 speakers as they were no longer supported. I really liked the following attributes: I could play to them wirelessly, and they actually had pretty nice sound quality. But I didn't like that Sonos chooses WHAT I can play through them, e.g. not any mp3s or .flac files, or at least not unless I go through an irritating set of hoops. Looking for an alternative.

Help me find this exact shower curtain liner

Hi! I'm trying to purchase this precise shower curtain liner (in white), but the only place online that I've found it is a store in Puerto Rico that does not ship. I'm in NYC. Would ideally like to buy online but in-person locally is cool, too. Can you help me sleuth this one out? Thanks!

Where to go in Toronto for fun wallets?

My current wallet is falling apart and needs to be replaced. Since the pandemic caused the local store where I'd go for pretty wallets to close, I'm at a loss for where to try next. Any suggestions for a large-ish women's wallet that isn't just basic brown or black leather? I'm open to brick and mortar stores in Toronto or online. Thanks!

Help me find a daypack that won't fall over like a dead beetle

I've been using the Osprey Daylite for hiking and travel and I like almost everything about it except for the fact that it won't stand on its own and the water bottle holders are too big. This has resulted in many spilled/leaking water bottles and I'm ready to find something new. [more inside]

How do I post a garage sale to Facebook Marketplace?

I am stumped. I'm a relatively tech-savvy guy, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to post a garage sale to Facebook Marketplace. I see OTHER garage sales listed there under the Classifieds category, but that category isn't an option for me when I try to create an ad of my own. What the heck is going on? Anyone here a FB Marketplace expert who can tell me how to do this? (Online tutorials seem to contain outdated info because I don't have the options that they show.) I feel like a Boomer having to ask this question...

How to Pay T-Mobile Prepaid without Interruption of Service

I have T-mobile Prepaid in the USA, which I switched to last month after 19 years with Verizon PostPaid. How do I pay for next month's $35 bill that starts tomorrow? I have added $75 to my prepaid service balance using a card I bought from Target (My undesrtanding I don't have to pay for taxes this way). Will T-mobile automatically deduct $35 on the first day of that month? Or do I need to set up an autopay? website confuses me as there's no option to "Pay bill"

Gas cooktop recommendations/experiences/likes/dislikes

We're redoing our kitchen and it's time for appliance selection! I've only ever had a range before, but the new kitchen design requires a separate cooktop and wall oven. I'm definitely sticking with gas, but other than that, I'm pretty open to brands, design, etc. I have some thoughts based on what I've seen so far that I'll share below, but my question is a plea for you to share your experience with specific brands, models, and/or features that were either good or bad to help inform my choice.
