I have wanted one of these for a very long time but couldn't justify the $300+ cost of one, but.....Walmart had a sale! They were marked down to $196! I was there the other day and put one in my cart, did all the rest of my shopping, and then put it back on the shelf just before I checked out - still didn't want to spend that much money on a mixer. I reasoned that my hands were still good enough for kneading dough and I have a wonderful hand-held mixer that I've been using for years. I really don't have the counter space, it's too much money...etc etc.
I went back to Walmart a few days later and there were only a handful left on the shelf and it looked like all the black ones (the color I wanted) were sold out but I just kept going past them and focused on the items I needed to pick up.
Then, today I had a nap with Miss Pearl and a dream that I had the mixer and was loving it! When I woke up I was kicking myself for not getting it at that great price. So....I asked Shelby to run to town today (she has her driver's license now - that's pretty handy!) and pick one up for me. It. Was. The. Last. Black.One.
So I spent this afternoon rearranging my countertop so I could make room for it.
