day #6: saving some dough {31 days of thrifting}

 
I was so excited to find this sweet little thing for $9.99 at Goodwill!

It’s a 2 lb. Cuisinart convection bread maker, and right now it’s still selling on Amazon for $115! It’s such an awesome bread maker- it even beeps at you to tell you to take the paddle out before the final rise. It had been used maybe one time, and came with the original measuring cups, spoons, and instructions!
 
I love my artisan bread- but having hot bread ready and waiting for breakfast is so nice!! It also helps me keep my morning efficiency project on track.
 
I have to tell you, my small appliances are seriously like best friends in the kitchen. And finding one at a thrift store for less than 10% of the original price, be still my beating heart!
 
I think it took a whopping five years of being married before I asked for a kitchen tool for my anniversary present. I never thought I would be that practical, but hey, diamonds won’t make breakfast for you! :D
 
Do you feel the same?
Which would you rather have- jewelry or kitchen stuff?
