Zojirushi Breadmaker BB-CEC20

I don't bake, I don't even really "cook" much at all but I love this bread machine, which I received as a gift. At first I was very overwhelmed by it but after making my first loaf of bread I loved it, it is so freaking easy. I use it in conjunction with "The Bread Lovers Bread Machine Cookbook," as well as recipes from the booklet that came with the machine. 

Zojirushi Panorama Window® Micom Water Boiler & Warmer CD-LFC30/40/50

I've had a Zojirushi water heater for 3 years now and I love it. While it seemed expensive when I bought it, I find it is well worth the price. Near boiling water is always ready to make tea, and I've saved countless minutes of what used to be a process of filling the kettle, turning on the heat, waiting, and coming back.  I use it for tea, instant oatmeal, soup, hot chocolate, apple cider, ramen and other stuff.

Medialink - Wireless N Broadband Router - 150 Mbps - 2.4GHz - 802.11n w/ Internal Antenna

Okay. I'm old. I don't understand a lot of gadget stuff. MP3, MP4, widgets...I have no idea what they are and I doubt that the quality of my retirement will be affected by that loss. But I do have a computer at home that the cable guy set up. I can send e-mail, read the news online and have even bought books on Amazon and had them delivered by UPS to my door.

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player

We purchased this with the intention of getting rid of our satellite service. We don't regret it at all, in fact we watch a lot of stuff that we would not have normally sought out. We have Amazon Prime and Hulu as well as a bunch of the free channels loaded. We will probably add Netflix at some point but for our typical 10-12 hours of TV viewing a week we aren't too worried about it. There are a few shows that we have to go to the networks website (Survivor and Amazing Race) and can't get it on our Roku but we cut our costs by more than $100 a month so it doesn't really bother us that much.

Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor

This is the first juicer I've ever bought, and I've debated a long time on which one to get. I just entered my third trimester of my first pregnancy, and I'm wanting to fill my body and my baby's body with as much concentrated nutrition as possible. I finally decided on the Breville after seeing how many 5 star reviews this product has, especially for the price! And boy am I glad I did!!!

I bought this Dewalt-drill-set  for my husband to use, but I actually use it often as well.  I'm glad that I chose this one, as it works really great, and my husband said, it has all the power-we-need for the jobs around the house.

San Francisco Bay Coffee One Cup for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, Breakfast Blend,

I try to budget myself when ordering single cup servings for my Keurig. This purchase was an excellent deal and the coffee is out of this world! I was hesitant to order this coffee, as I was not all that familiar with the brand.

All the Facts about Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7-Inch, Wi-Fi)

I use my Samsung Galaxy Tab to check email, update/visit social sites and to do some light word processing. It also holds my photos while I'm on vacation. I bought a card reader that plugs right in and I take the SD card out of my camera and transfer the photos to the tablet. I've used it's GPS features to locate places on maps and the screen is easier to see than a small GPS or phone. The Android operating system makes it work just like my phone--easy to use, versatile, and lots of apps available. I also use it to Skype, making it great for trips away from home. The upward-facing speakers make music sound incredible.
