I took the bus today...

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

For the first time without DH! I found an awesome deal for a KitchenAid Mixer (burned mine out awhile ago), but the place would have been closed by the time he got off work. So I grabbed DD and took the TTC. I managed to get there getting off only one stop ahead of where I was supposed to. Then I hauled the mixer back to the bus stop while trying to corral an antsy 4 yr-old. It was totally worth it, because now I have a shiny new 6qt mixer sitting on my counter, and managed to get in a good workout bringing it home. Woohoo!

    Awesome!! I LOVE Ebay!! Just bought an Ipod touch for my little girl, for $30 because it was listed as "borken" and it wouldn't restore...it's restoring now!!! :) Ebay is definitely my fav!! I'll have to check that out! Thanks!!!

    I got super lucky finding it on ebay from a local seller. I burned out my Professional 6 a few months ago, and I found a Professional 550 HD for 120 dollars. It is a brand new floor model, but was missing the bowl, beater, whisk and dough hook. No problem for me because I already have all from my last mixer, and the 5.5qt wide and 6qt bowls are interchangeable. I have been looking on ebay for a long time trying to find one, so that really is the best strategy. The seller that I got this on from (shirleyspecial) is the ebay user name, has similar models on sale, so it would be worth checking out, because the retail value of a mixer like this is over 400, and you can get it for around 120. The bowl itself you can find on amazon for 49, and the beater, whisk and hook are about 12-16 dollars each. This seller has a return policy, so I felt comfortable with the purchase.

    I have never ridden the bus! LOL I'm too much of a chicken - and doing it with my DD with me!? Holy Moly - talk about an axiety attack. I would probably jump off the bus waaaay before my stop! HAHA!

    I've always wanted one of those mixers!!! Where did you find it on sale? I hope it was a big chain store that we have here!!!!! :P

    Some things are worth the harder trip and a new mixer is one of those things! May you make lots of yummy things with your new mixer!
