I'm all for saving money. I have to be. With a family of eight, I admit and am no where near being ashamed to say that I will save a buck any way I can. If there is a way...I will find it. With that said, I follow several blogs from couponing to homemade gifts. I also think it's funny how our society, trying to make things "easier" has almost made things more complicated. A recent magazine I received in the mail had this thing-a-ma-bob that you could order, for only $14.99 to use to stuff the yucky food down the drain to your garbage disposal. Nifty, ya...but really? To me all that says is that I have one more "thing" to find a place for when it's not in use. This brings me to what is known as The Magic Bullet. it's a nifty contraption, but again.....really? Sure, it would be nice to make single serve smoothies for myself (who am I kidding, the sound of it would be a call to my kids and I would instantly hear, "Can I have one?!") but there is a solution, and it was right up in my cabinet. A common Mason jar MAGICALLY fits onto the bottom mixing part of my blender! Now, I won't be making myself a personal smoothy....but I can customize everyone's with what ever ingredients they want (even though I may not choose bananas and lemon juice, but who's judging, right?). Oh, ya...it's great for making baby food too, no deep blender pitcher to try to scoop stuff out from.
WTF?!? Friday. Stacked.
