I'm not one to run around the days after Thanksgiving doing frantic shopping just to save a few dollars while getting my body bruised. But when a special come-on came in the mail from Kohl's offering a great sale on Tuesday and Wednesday with an additional 15% off for seniors, I found myself in the store yesterday, parked just a few steps from the door. Some of my goals were in the area of kitchen, like purchasing knives for the cottage. That paid off handsomely with two sizes of Santoku knives, one seven inch and one five inch. And then, my favorite purchase, my new toy. Many people know that I keep a Keurig in one of my upstairs bathrooms so I can have coffee right away each morning. But that leaves me without one downstairs in my kitchen and while I'm not a big coffee drinker during the day, right after supper I do enjoy an occasional cup. So, knowing that Keurig has permitted Mr. Coffee to put out their version of a one cup that is small and a bit cheaper than the big Keurigs, I got myself a real bargain. My counter collection of small electrics continues to grow. Still, I didn't get into the melee of those who fought for a $2.99 waffle iron on Black Friday.
