    With as much time as we spend in the kitchen making food for the family, we deserve to have some good stuff. Maybe not the best or most expensive, but appliances that do the job we bought them for. WHat I really need to do is get rid of the junk that is never used anymore - like my bread machine!

    I don't have many appliances I don't use but I do have baking pans I could at least move to the basement (purgatory for things on their way to be donated), where they can live for a while, usually a year or less, until I get tired of moving them around or looking at them.

    Did you ever look at the Blendtec (I think that's what it's called)? I can't decide if it or the VitaMix is better (or maybe they're the same). DH thinks I should just get a Ninja. I would rather save up and get the appliance I want and plan to have for a long time.

    I have a friend who has a Vitamix at home and put a Blendtec in at the school cafe and she prefers the Vitamix (the stick down the center is a big help). I have had to buy a new blender about every other year, until a couple of years ago I bought the parts for my Oster that kept breaking. I am done settling for something less than the Vitamix. They have a 7 year warranty, and with what I have spent on blenders in the past seven years I could easily have bought the Vitamix and had smoother smoothies, and less hassle. I have almost saved the money for it, I will have it by Christmas! (p.s. I read reviews on the Ninja and they were not great)

    Thanks for the info. I will work on DH My food processor is still limping along, but I bet next year I can have enough money saved. I'm drooling over the thought of your appliance

    wow, I have been wishing we were renters! I love our house and our neighborhood, but DH is such a worrier that he is constantly sending me emails to have this or that checked for something or other. He was way lower stress when we rented!

    I am dying for a pair of brown boots, I know exactly what I want, but will likely wait until next year so I can justify the Vitamix! The ones I want will have to be second hand anyway, so it will probably take me a year or two to find them, it is gonna all be about luck on that one!

    while renting is nice (not responsible for the property) there is something to be said for ownership although it makes me a little nervous. If I can have it paid off by the time I retire, that is a huge benefit. This would be a nice town to retire in.

    Yea, the market should be on the high end of the swing by the time you retire, and having your home paid for would be helpful for sure. We struggle with that because we know that we want to retire to Amelia Island, and it would be way cheaper to buy now, rent it out then renovate it when we are ready to move in, except for the property taxes for non-residents there are outrageous!

    I will have the kid work on my facebook this weekend. It is weird cause I don't know what kind of "privacy" things I put in place but I still get other friend requests and way too many "invitations", so I am only managing to keep out the people I want to hear from and not weeding out the ones I don't want to hear from!

    I can't get on pintrest from work, but I will follow you back when I get home. I keep a board on there for photos of "things I have done", I am thinking I am going to add a board for "food I eat" or "tracking my food" (I need to think of something clever) and put the photos of my meals there.
