My friend Diane at A Picture is Worth A 1,000 Words is hosting a 2nd Time Around Tuesday.
For Christmas this year I bought my daughter a Kitchen Aid mixer. Before Christmas night was even over she told me that she had made some bread and cookies. She loves it and can't say enough about it. I thought about getting one for myself but after all the money I spent at Christmas I just couldn't justify buying one for myself. I did have a friend offer me her mixer and I enjoyed using that and was thankful for her kindness.
One day a school a couple of weeks ago Britt called me to tell me that she saw the same mixer I had bought for her on Craig's List for $100. I called and ended up buying it. It was brand new and still in the unopened box. The woman I bought it from lived on a road I pass every day to and from school. She said that she had bought it for $399 and ended up not having a place to put it.
Right now it is sitting on my counter. I have used it to make mashed potatoes, beat some eggs and that's about it. Tomorrow I am hoping to make some peanut butter blossom cookies (or boob cookies as my friend Jeanne likes to call them!) and I hope to use it again then.
Britt and I both have talked about getting the ice cream maker attachment for it. I've never bought any thing off of Craig's List before. I am certainly glad I didn't let this offer pass me by.
