Ok, don't worry, I'm not going to post each time I don't buy something.
Yesterday, Jan 7th my willpower was tested! Last fall when I bought a lot of apples I called everyone I know to try and borrow one of these! No one had one. Wegman's had one but it was $25 and I didn't even spend that much on the apples.
Yesterday, while at Wegman's, they were 1/2 price! $12.50!!! I wanted it. BAD. I picked up it, turned it over (made in Taiwan) and left it on the shelf. I mean it's only the 7th.... Of January......
And as I recall, since I had one of those apple slicer things, that it really wasn't all that difficult to peel the apples for pies and apple bread. A lot of the time I used them, I left the peel on which is better for you anyway. Since I don't think I'm going to mass produce apple pies I think I really don't need this gizmo anyway. Sometimes when you really think of what you need, you realize you don't need anything at all.
