Sometimes, things do simply break
Pictured is the same model of Sunbeam bread maker that I got off of Freecycle almost 2 years ago, I think, just as I was eyeballing purchasing the identical model ON SALE for $69.99 at Kohl's. I jumped at the opportunity to grab it off of Freecycle for free! It was barely used, too. It had served us well, weekly at a minimum but has been making a horrific noise for sometime now. I knew that it was dying, which it finally did, last night as I was making 2 batches of pizza dough, in 2 separate machines.
As luck would have it, I recently scored a brand new, Breadman Ultimate at Salvation Army.(http://ctonabudget.blogspot.com/2013/03/salvation-army.html) While I did have to pay for that one, it was even cheaper than the $70 sale price above, at $29.99. So, I will offer the bread bucket on Freecycle, recycle the machine parts and move on. Had I spent $70, I would be feeling pretty bummed out right now.
