Y’all know I am madly in love with the BlendTec Total Blender. (So much so that I, for now anyway, give 12 Steps to Whole Foods away when you get one through the link on this site.) It’s not just an appliance, not just a blender . . . it’s really my best friend. Okay, I’m getting carried away, but I do spend more time with my Total Blender than I do my best friends, I think.
Today I was helping in the 3rd grade for Rome Day, gorgeous sunny day in Utah after a crazy-snowy month. Another volunteer mom came up and said she reads my site/blog and had questions about buying a Total Blender. She said, “I’ve just been waiting to buy it because I’m afraid I won’t use it.”
My friend Cheryl said this same thing to me a year or two ago before taking the plunge. I lent her my backup machine to try it out. But this is what I told her. It’s not going to jump off the counter and conk you on the head till you use it. It won’t make a peep. You have to actually put stuff in it every day and push the buttons to start the blade turning.
That said, I think that when you buy something that hurts a little (requires a financial sacrifice), maybe you even had to save for a while and cut expenses in another area, you make a commitment. You have a higher probability of succeeding. Incidentally, that’s how Jenny Craig and other diet centers make their money–the fact that once you plunk down a chunk of change, you are more likely to follow through with the commitment to lose weight.
I hope your turbo blender isn’t just SITTING ON THE COUNTER. Tell me . . . IS IT?!?!
Those of you using it DAILY, what-all do you do with it?
