For some, this may not sound like it is that big of a deal. But for the past couple of years I have grown accustomed to my cup of java a day habit. There is rarely a day I go without it. So, you can imagine, when my coffee pot committed suicide on Monday, I was devastated. What was I going to do?
This could have been a simple solution. I could have just went down the street to Wally World and invested in a $10 coffee pot. But I am picky and I have standards. My last coffee pot was a Hamilton Beach BrewStation. Carafes need not apply. I hate those leaky things. They are such a pain. In fact, I haven't had a normal coffee pot since 2003 when I invested in my first Brewstation. I refused to downgrade.
So I did some research and I looked around. I have been eyeballing those Keurig machines but I will admit, the cost had me against it for awhile now. So when I found something similar, but at a better price, I thought my problem had been solved. It offered the same concept without the huge investment.
So, like anytime I am getting ready to spend a bunch of money, I started doing research. My best bet was to order online because I could get rewards by ordering at Walmart.... dot... com. through Swagbucks. The problem - that also meant that I would have to wait almost a full week by the time it got shipped to my house.
I was pretty sure the wait was going to kill me.
Yet today, just as I was finally ambling up to my bedroom as zombie mom to get dressed (just short of noon!), the doorbell rang. Irritated by the distraction, I went to the door wondering who could be disturbing my lazy day.
It was my Keurig!
And as for the better deal, I ended up to go with the more expensive product. Why? Simply because you get what you pay for!
