Bargain Hunted Me a KitchenAid Stand Mixer!

Well ladies - I know I've been slacking on the blogging - but I'm feeling a twinge to get back into it.  No extreme couponing for me - just me being cheap.  You know how I roll.

Well anyways, I am here to announce that I have finally arrived today!  I've been a homemaker for over 5 years now - and I just (yes, on 4/20) got my first KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  Can I get a "Woot Woot!"

So I bargain hunted this down to about $186.  It's the Artisan model.  I went with the silver color since it seemed the most high class - and I am the queen of high class.  The retail price for it at Kohl's was $359.  We all know Kohl's marks up everything though.  Well it was on sale for $299.  I had stolen $30 in Kohl's Cash from my mother - so it brought that down to $269.  Then I had a 30% off my total order coupon - which brought it down another $82.20 - making it $186.   A bonus too:  When you buy one of these suckers at Kohl's, you get a mail-in-rebate for either a free Food Grinder attachment or a free glass bowl.  I think I'm going to go with the glass bowl.
I am now officially a Homemaker. 

If you already own one of these suckers, you need to let me know awesome things to do with it.  I am still overwhelmed with this purchase.  My husband hasn't seen it yet.  He may kill me.

I scored mine at Kohls a few years ago as well for under $200! And I love it!

I use my Artisan for anything that requires mixing and especially bread dough.
I leave my mixer on my counter at all times, I think because I feel like it ups my mommy status. My husband has his state of the art cell phone to feel cool and I have my mixer.
Before I had kids I would have thought this sounded lame but now it makes me feel cool (especially when I put on my neat looking apron).
