Last weekend I went to a nice thrift store with my sister-in-law. I was so excited to find a "new" bread machine for only $6.99.
If you have been following me for very long, you know that I sadly parted with my hand-me-down bread machine last summer when it quit working. I was more than sad, I was kind of crushed. I used my old bread machine once or twice a week making my favorite bread machine recipes.
I wasn't sure if my new to me bread machine would even work, but I thought it was worth risking $6.99 for the possibility of making fresh baked goodies with ease once again. I put it to the test the next day and made two loaves of cinnamon sugar pull-apart bread (one was for my church Mom's group meeting).
I put in all of the ingredients and ran it on the dough cycle and in an hour and a half, I had perfect dough ready to roll. I even used the time delay function to have fresh dough ready in the morning to make a loaf for the boys. My new bread machine works beautifully and for a very small investment.
One thing to think about if purchasing a bread machine from a thrift store is that it might not come with instructions. Mine did not, but I figured it out pretty quickly since I have used bread machines in the past. It's really not that hard to figure out and there are so many wonderful bread machine recipes online.
