Replacing the Dead Toaster

March 7, 2013

Shay Fei Fei and Nomo’s challenge today was to replace the dead toaster.

The old toaster oven stopped working.  This was realized last night while making dinner.  We were supposed to have Parmesan Chicken.  After the alarm went off, the chicken was still raw.

Shay Fei Fei wanted the replacement NOW so online was not an option.  Tough luck Amazon.

Winning Deal:


Hamilton Beach 6 Slice Toaster from BED BATH and BEYOND!
MSRP $49.99 – 20% OFF COUPON plus ABL used her credit card to get REWARDS

Target didn’t have anything within budget that was available and Best Buy was too far.

Don’t forget your credit card rewards and coupons.  Coupons do come in handy when you need something.

Elliptical – great thing about it is it’s small and you can plop it in front of your TV or computer
3lbs. Dumbbells
Adjustable Dumbbells (Handmydowns from Mr. Shay)
15lbs. Kettlebell
Exercise Mat

All these items available online.  If you’re creative enough you can get them cheaper at bargain stores like Ross or Marshall’s, Craigslist, a Garage Sale or Goodwill.

Did you know you pay more for your insurance if you’re overweight?
