Merry Christmas, everyone!
I got Sandy a Tassimo Hot Beverage System, along with a little fondue maker and some new glasses for our kitchen. The Tassimo is pretty neat — we’ve only used it for hot chocolate so far (since I wasn’t sure of exactly the kind of coffee or tea Sandy would prefer), but it lives up to its billing of being fast, easy, and with minimal clean-up required. It wound up being a pretty good deal for a number of reasons:
- We had several 20% off coupons good for any single item at Bed Bath and Beyond. Naturally, I used one of them on this.
- It came with an additional $30 mail-in rebate.
- It also came with a registration code for two free boxes of T-Discs (as an incentive to register it online).
- I also got another coupon for additional free T-Discs upon purchase of 3 boxes at Bed Bath and Beyond.
The cats got some salmon treats, and some fluff balls (which they love). They also got wet food breakfast today, which Oliver always loves. Mia also got a special treat, as Sandy made her some new stuffed mice toys, which she really loves — she bats them around, throws them up in the air, chases them, and carries them around in her mouth. It’s very cute.
As for me, I got a Logitech Harmony 880 remote control, Halo 3, an Anaheim Arsenal jersey, and some other assorted knick-knacks from Sandy. My brother Ray had also earlier given me Guild Wars, NBA Street Homecourt, and BioShock. The biggest problem at this point is going to be finding enough time to plow through all of these games!
