more coffee machine dramas [Apr. 4th, 2010|12:22 am]
vixnix the triumphant
We bought 250g of beans on thursday for $13. It was a rip, I know that - that's just by the by. They're nearly gone and it's only going to be sunday tomorrow. We can't afford to buy that much coffee. I have holes in my shoes actually. This machine was supposed to save us money because we wouldn't buy as many coffees at cafe. But because we waste so much we're actually spending more. I feel like a dang fool. We spent so much money on coffee equipment only to find out that they're a total cash bleed unless you know how to use them - and to find out how to use them you need to participate in a home barista course. Which is about $200. I'm having one of those moments where I just want to bury my head in my hands and let that awful regret just wash over me.

Easter sunday tomorrow though! We're not going to be at church this year, just down at the beach with another family, engaging in an extremely pagan easter egg hunt. But we're counting down to the move day on wednesday and this will be one of the last things we do with Maxim's best friend (and one of my best friends) for a while.

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!
