Buy it and use it to make Hot Chocolate or Tea instead! (If you like either of those, that is)

I would have to agree with the Kcup coffee machine-I dont drink coffee or any hot drink for that matter but my family does. But the kcup things are .50 each which is just too pricy for us

I've had coffee from one of the K-cup machines, and it's great! But, at $.50 a cup, it's too expensive for me. I would love to have one of the K-cup displays on my countertop though, as my kitchen is decorated in a coffee theme. I keep looking for one at my local thrift stores, then I'll stock it with free samples that I can order online. Yup, I'm a cheapskate.

@trekmiss: No display racks, but I've seen some Keurigs at thrift stores here, though most tend to price them too high IMHO ($25-50+). I did buy one for $8 once ... before I looked into the cost per cup. I promptly resold it to a co-worker for $20.

Yeah, I'm jaded when it comes to price. Heck, already twice in the past month I couldn't justify spending $2 for lightly worn Woot shirt. OK, so it's on Anvil ... and the previous two copies I've ran across were unworn. If it's still there this coming week, it'd be half-price ... well, even then it's a maybe.

The list is long on things I already bought thinking I would use and well... I should dust them. I have been trying to do better but it is hard sometimes. If I was smart, I would quit hanging out here and finding cool stuff I want.

@trekmiss: Get your k-cup coffee from Costco or Sam's and it can be as low as $0.32 a cup. Or if you are savvy, get k-cups from Big Lots, Marshall's or Home Goods. Check the returns at Bed Bath Beyond and you can find boxes marked down by 1/2 (making it $0.25) a cup.

I'd throw my vote in for a '58 Les Paul. Thing would be FAR too valuable (both in terms of sentimental and actual value) to ever really play.

I've tried K-Cups and I'm honestly not a fan. The few times I've had it it's always been watered down and bitter. This might be because the machine hadn't been cleaned in a while, but meh. I just wasn't impressed.

The office I interned at this summer got on partway through and was only used for a couple days. The consensus was that the coffee pot was better.

So yeah...if you're not a coffee person, I'd wager you especially wouldn't be a fan of K-Cups.

@narfcake: Where I live the thrift stores never have anything as nice a Keurig or woot shirts.

@mellielou: Returned coffee? Not sure I'd go for that. Seriously, I'm not that much of a coffee snob at home. I'm pretty happy with my Mr. Coffee and Eight O'Clock or Folgers. I treat myself to a Starbucks drink on occasion, and I think I appreciate it a whole lot more than an expensive cup of black coffee made at home.

50c per cup is expensive now?

I'd love to have known the actual honest to goodness-Battery Life for portable electronics such as a laptop, etc. "All-day" or "for a workday" is not 4 or less hours on, at least, my job.

@stryker4526: Yes. It all adds up.

@trekmiss: I don't know if I'd use the word "nice" with the newer Woot shirts. ^_^ Still, it's pretty sad that I've been running across as many of them as I have, seeing how it's only been 7 months since their debut - 3 copies each of Read and MMS, two copies of After All This Time, and one each for 120 Stars, Dandelion Drops, and Fish Memory. In my years of thrift shopping, I've never ran across so many newer ones so quickly, but I'm not surprised either. They shrink so much that they become "unwearable" after a couple washes. And you know what, Woot ... these are the folks who aren't coming back to buy more shirts.

In the past (with AA shirts), it's usually at least 6 months (but typically more) after a reckoning before I'd run across them. Exceptions - three Ramy shirts and Nevermore; they were still in the reckoning when I bought them second hand.

A politician. Or maybe a judge.

@narfcake: It's generous of you to identify that Asphalt. Just Asphalt shirt as Nevermore, but I think it's insulting to all the legible Nevermores. :)
