Merry Christmas to me!


Last week I was making homemade rolls and my stand mixer broke. I was pretty sad about this because baking isn't nearly as fun when you have to stand there stirring whatever treat you happen to be making that day. Justing admitted that he had been thinking about getting me a Kitchenaid mixer for me for Christmas anyway so maybe we would just get it a little early. I had no problem with that at all. :) So yesterday, Brenda and I went to do a little grocery shopping. We noticed that they had the mixer I wanted on sale from $329 to $269. There was also a $40 mail in rebate. Sounded pretty good, but then we noticed that the add at Fred Meyer flier had a $30 off coupon a purchase over a certain amount plus a %10 off housewares coupon that could be combined with it. Still an amazing deal, but then we also discovered that a few times a year they have senior discount day where you can get another %10 off hour purchase and yesterday happened to be one of those days. Sounded good to me! We went home and ran the plan by Justin and then borrowed Rod since he is more advanced in years than the rest of us so he could get the discount. After all was said and done, I got out of there with my beautiful mixer for about $150.
Thanks Justin! I love it and I am so excited to get to use it soon!

That is incredible!!! Maybe you should shop for me. I'm thinking a 50% discount on a car sounds great.
