The fence guys came back today and so far about are half way done with the fence. It's going to be sooo nice. 1) it will keep the dogs in the yard and give them much more room outside. 2) it will keep the neighbor kiddos OUT of our yard (have I mentioned them yet?) 3) it already looks much nicer than the old fencing. It has a top rail now and it's all pulled nice and tight, not all saggy looking, like before.
Yesterday I came across a good deal on a KitchenAid classic mixer through Kohl's. I've been sitting here all week trying to figure out what to use the $20 Kohl's cash I have to use by tomorrow (I bought DH some Romeo shoes/boots for xmas and earned the Kohl's cash). I thought DD might really like one of these (I know I really like mine) and I've also had in the back of my mind I'll need to get her a housewarming gift.
I texted her and asked her if she'd like one. Like me, she's not some super baker, but it is nice to have to use when you do bake something. Like me, she really doesn't need the super fancy, expensive ones. (though in my book, even the classic models are expensive!). The color choices were white (which I have) or silver (which appears to look stainless in the photo). She said heck ya, she would love one! She choose the silver, which should go good with her stainless appliances. All in all I think it's a nice housewarming gift.
The posted deal was using a 15% off coupon code, but I had a 25% coupon code that I had received as a moving promotion, making the deal even better. It was regularly $300, on sale for $229 - which doesn't fool me. I know you can get these classic models for $199 at several stores, but that's usually the lowest. This deal was $229, less the 25% off, less my $20 Kohl's cash, less a $30 mail in rebate (DD will save me the upc code and packing slip), and $45 back in Kohl's cash. Plus I think I earned enough points for a $5 Kohl's rewards back. Making this about $77 when all is said and done. Pretty good deal, I think. I just had it shipped direct to DD. Now I gotta figure out what to spend $45 in Kohl's cash on.....xmas gifts, most likely.
I'm ready for it to be tomorrow at noon, so I can be done working for the week and enjoy the days off and good food.
