Penny Saving Moves

OK everyone you like it when I'm honest - so here it is - get ready.

In my new life,  I am spending way too much time and money on my constant need and lust for sparkling water. I just can not get enough of it. I am satisfied, only to turn over and need another bottle. How will I ever afford my plane ticket to Hawaii?
So, it has been remarked that you can get contraptions that will fizz your own waters. No need for the midnight run to CVS for a cold sparkling one. When you can just do it yourself from the tap. No conversation required, no money, just press and bing-bong, hello to the savor of a thirst!
So today was the day and with the many vouchers and Kohls coupons that have mated in the bottom of my bag - I bought my very own shiny Soda Stream. (Someone famous should/could/would name their baby Soda, it's pretty cute when you think of it.)

Now please know I work hard to live with my fear of electricity, gas and explosions. I think it may have something to do with a gas explosion that happened at the bottom of our road when I was a kid. Anyway - the fact that tonight I needed to push a gas container into anything horrified me.
Then that I am pushing down on the whole thing, and there is water and glass involved, while I'm standing in a hot kitchen. Oh my, I swore and sweated unnecessarily, lets just say that. Anyway, I have now had the maiden voyage and I understand that the first time is not the best. I think I tasted plastic, sorry! We all, however, survived and I have officially named him Soda SamStream. For awhile we will just go steady and later I may add a few flavors as my experience grows.

I trust my ROI on this purchase will be quick, because with that saving and my at home self manicures - I want to get to Hawaii before the year is through. 
PS the benefit of my at home self manicures is three fold; I know for sure that I am talking about me, I can only pick one color and I do not tip myself. Even when I'm happy!
