This morning I headed off to Sears with an ad from Sunday's paper in my hands. I was hoping to get a Kitchen Aide mixer for $199 with $30 rebate. The usual price on these mixers is about $300 or so. I've wanted a mixer with dough hooks for a long time, and I was sure this was going to be my luck day! When I got to our Sears store in the mall, I was informed that that particular store didn't carry small appliances. I asked the salesperson why they would put the ad in the paper for something they don't even carry, and his lame answer was that "Well, some of our stores in other areas do carry them. You ought to try K-Mart here in town. They're part of Sears now, you know." I DID try K-Mart, and I found a Black and Decker mixer with just what I wanted for $59.95 plus a $5 gift certificate. One of the boxes had been opened, so I opened it further to make sure that I had all the extras I wanted, and it did. I was elated to save $150 and get the type mixer I wanted, and it renewed my faith in K-Mart. I felt so good, I even went to the gym and exercised for an hour. See what happens when things go your way for a change!! It must mean that spring is on it's way.
