Well, PIP my Pot, I am Crazy


I got a new Mr. Coffee...quite by Chance. Email received from K-Mart stating my 15.60 Rewards dollars would expire in 3 days. OH NO! Not my REWARDS from spending 100.00 2 months ago in the store buying smaller sized clothes.


I frantically drove to K-Mart, in need of a smaller bathing suit.. NOTHING! NADA! I could find nothing to spend the money on. I made a trip to the Potty as per usual, and when I came out I was on the Coffee Pot Aisle and there was a huge clearance sign, all Pots Must Go...  Since we were expecting the last perk of the pot at home, I picked the one I wanted and skipped merrily up to the cashier expecting to pay a Mere Ten Dollars for the pot. Wrong! I had no idea I had to have a PIN number to get the full amount.
She said I can give you TEN of the 16 but without the pin, not the full amount. I bought the Pot anyway, paying a mere SIXTEEN instead of TEN.  The No Sale/No Rewards would have been 40 dollars.

And Came home and PIPPED my POT.... you know PIP, the android app on my tablet that I love....I never know when to stop. and here we are... of course the POT is really Black, but who cares.. It works, it is automated, and easy peasy to set the timer.
                                  WAITING now for an email to decide what I NEED Next...

I like the first picture the best, and the third one in the collage. WHY? Because those are the ones I can see YOU the best in!! So today, you are literally the grounds in my coffee!! And I am drinking this post up! Coffee Art rocks! Enough with my bad puns, now tell me if your coffee tastes any different. Does it have a timer? How do you like it?

I like the cool pics of your new Mr Coffee. A great bargain! They have closed the Kmarts in this region. I used to shop there often.

Hello, I love a good sale. Too bad they would not let you use all your bonus points. I have a similar coffee pot. Fun edits, I like the reflections too.
Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!

Gayle said...

The last color scheme would fit my kitchen. Oh that's right we don't drink coffee and the microwave works just fine for a cup of tea. Can't wait to see what your next bargain turns out to be.

Mildred said...

Our local Kmarts went out of bs. too. Enjoy that new bargain!!!

A coffee maker and at a bargain, what's NOT to like, Sandra. When I saw the first photo I really wondered about possible new color schemes for them...but then read a bit further and should have known you would have been tweaking it a tad.
Thanks for the comment on today's post after remembering when we announced the arrival of granddaughter Ellie, 6 years ago...shows how long we've been blog friends and time has passed SO fast :-)

Rose said...

These really make me wish they made them in colors other than black or white...I love the first two best of all.

Ah, that reminds me of trying to use my savings catcher money in Walmart, but I used the wrong copy I had made. Bought a set of chairs for free with that! I like your PIP...I see you! Sandra, you always make me smile. I love your happy spirit.

I agree with Ginny :)

What a way to get a great deal. Glad you had to buy some new clothes. Way to go.
Our Kmart closed last year. It never did enough business to warrant it staying open. I could never find what I wanted in there either.
Love your "pipping". You certainly can't beat that price for the pot..even if you didn't get the full discount.

I have a one cup coffee maker...I usually get two out of it. Nice for just me and I don't waste that way. I think our Wally World still has swim suits.....smaller size, that is AWESOME. I seemed to have gotten stuck at 63 down. Got saggy skin here and there but you know....for health reasons I am fine with the sag!

Madi and Mom said...

Ohhhh yay a very pretty pipped pot it is too.
I bet the coffee will be yummy too.
We missed you. The peeps returned at 11:30 mom is catching up
Hugs madi your bfff

Ruth Hiebert said...

It's always nice to get something on a discounted price.This pot looks quite attractive, either in it's natural black or the added colors you designed.

Mevely317 said...

Such a deal! I love the coppery-red look; like an Italian kitchen or something!

... but then where did the polka-dot swimsuit come from? (I'm getting ahead of myself, aren't I?)

Getting home after a bargain trip, and then getting to play with PIP....well, now, the most perfect day ever. I like the Yellow best. So bright and sunny.

Cranberry Morning said...

And what a problem to have to buy new clothes because the old ones are TOO BIG for you! You go girl! Just don't become Twiggy. :-) Like the pipped pot. LOL

Breathtaking said...

What a great bargain Sandra, and smart coffee pot. Like what you did with PIP, but black goes with everything.:)

What a good deal.We have a nespresso machine but none of us use it regularly. We are not big coffee drinkers now.
