However, there were a few MAJOR purchase made online on Christmas day and boxing day. Two very exciting purchases. The first exciting purchase was a new Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera. I have been working with my Fujitsu point and shoot for a few years and it has taken some great pictures. But, now that I am blogging and taking my photography much more seriously I really wanted a camera that would last me a long time. I ordered it online from the Future Shop and it should be arriving today or tomorrow. Woo hoo!
The second very exciting purchase is a Kitchen Aid stand up mixer. The was such a great deal I couldn't pass it up. Typically this unit sells for around $450 but with the Boxing Day discounts it only cost $199!! It is chrome and I have already cleared a spot on my counter for this lovely beast. I AM SO EXCITED! The Kitchen Aid stand up mixer has been kind of a holy grail in my family for years but no one could ever justify the cost. But, I was finally ready to take the plunge.
I can guarantee these two big purchases will result in more pictures and more baking on PBG. I am so excited to start using both items. They should be arriving either today or tomorrow. I keep looking for the mail truck like a little kid waiting for Santa.
I did make a short tip to the mall yesterday and found myself at the Gap. I am trying to "think outside the box" with my wardrobe these days. Buy a few things I might not normally wear. There was 40% off everything that was already on sale so I got both pieces for just under $50. yay! I am planning to wear the outfit with opaque black tights and the retro black pumps I bought to wear to my holiday party. Cute....I hope.
Are you a boxing week shopper? Do you find yourself doing more online shopping these days to avoid the crowds?
