Maybe I will change my mind

I was wondering when you decide to buy something that you had your heart set on, and you almost had the money to pay for it, and then you go on the net or ask your friends about it, then decide it is not that hot. Then you go and buy something more practical, but you only have a time limit to buy that good thing you wanted in the first place. So you have this rather practical, like in my case, cookingware set, but your heart really wants that fancy thing, lets say a new handbag that is only available. So here I am wanting a piano keyboard, not the 66 keyboard one, but the 76 to the regular kind, only the one offered at Sears, did not have good reviews, and I also need a large stainless steel frying pan. i mean here I am waiting until the snow melts, so I can go to Sears without slipping and I do not know what is the best, the frying pan or the piano keyboard? What do you do?

Looked at them. They only have 49 keys, not enough for someone who is a high soprano.

That might be a good idea. Only it would not act like a piano or even an organ. I am used to pressing down the keys very hard.

I can relate to your dilema, suspensful, although mine is slightly different, and relates to my lack of knowledge about products I need, so I tend to procrastinate. Because I don't have a lot of money to spend, I have to ask myself which is really the best for me? If I were you I'd ask which will give me the most enjoyment, and go with your heart.

It is what is more important. Now I do not want to get something inbetween, I would rather get a real digital piano, but the Sears Card runs out in November and the regular digital piano keyboards and not the smaller portable ones, or that Yamaha one does not come unless it is in the Wishbook. As for a frying pan, well I do need a very good one but if I get that one, I might as well forget about the piano. So it is choice between two things I need. My spinet organ does not have a good sound anymore and yet it would cost way too much to fix.

The keyboard will bring you a lot more pleasure. The fry pan will let you cook but it will wear out in a year or two and you'll need another one. Just get the keyboard! It will last at least 20 years and they've just found that music is good for the heart. Do it for your health!

I plan to get the keyboard. But it will have to wait until the weather warms up a bit. At least the gift card will not wear out until December at the latest.

I tend to be a practical buyer, though there are times I will save and splurge on a trip!

I am saving for that trip, as well as a Mac Book Pro, a piano (how I am going to sneak that in is beyond me, ) but there are other things that get in the way and with the interest rate having come down, I find I have to save more to get the same results. But that piano keyboard was going to be part a gift.

I wish I could. It is just that I wanted the piano keyboard for such a long time. I needed something to play on and my spinet organ is not enough and it does not have a good sound.

I have changed my mind only to be upset with myself for doing so. Sometimes, the reviews aren't as accruate as they claim to be. Most of them are giving by typical people, and usually when a product is rated bad it's because the person giving the review had no idea how to use this product, and the features it had to offer. My husband wanted this camera, and when we went to look at it, the saleman tried to talk him out of buying the one he really wanted because he didn't know anything about it. My husband was a combat photographer in the Marines, so he knew what he wanted, and how to use it. Even as we were checking out the guy said... I think you've made a bad choice. If you want the key board and it's something that you would benefit from, then I would purchase that. Everyone needs a frying pan but their old ones do just fine.

I tried the keyboard at Sears, and it sounded like a piano. As for the extras, well all I need to do is to plug it into a wall and if not, I can get a battery charger. I can also use the coffee table and sit on the sofa and play it, so I can get the stand later on. Besides it is for my singing, and even though I can go up two and a half octaves from middle C, I can still play the left hand and most of the high notes and low notes of a piano are not played that often.

I'd really sit down and try to make an informed decision about what you want to do. You say you want both things, but what do you want more? Will you use one a lot more often than the other one? For you, is the frying pan a more practical, useful idea than the keyboard? How much will you use the keyboard? How about the frying pan? You could always sit down and make a list of pros and cons for each item. Then after you have the list, you can evaluate both items and see which one may be a better buy for you at this time.

Well, do you have another frying pan? I mean an old one? If so, then go for the keyboard! Look at it this way eating fried foods are not that good for you anyhow! Enjoy the keyboard.

Love to sing. I need the keyboard to practice. I have a Spinet organ but it sounds clinky. I really want a real piano but my husband does not want me to get one, darn it.

Only you can decide if the want is stronger then the need. if its possible get both, go ahead and splurge you deserve it.

The trouble is I want a better keyboard, and it comes available at Christmas and the card runs out by then.

Don't always judge a product just because of a review. Reviews only display the view of the prson who wrote the review. Check out the keyboard for yourself before you decide. If you go to the store and check it out and find that you really like it, buy it, if you find that you don't, but hte frying pan, or ;ook for a cheaper keyboard so you can get both.

I would rather get a more expensive one, but the Sears gift cards only last a year, and will not be able to save enough extra.

I have a list of goals, and I'm aquiring them in order of a) most inexpensive and b) which one do I want more? If I want something, I continue to want it, regardless of what others say. I saved up for a set of CDs from Croatia, which I just ordered. Next I'd like to get an iPod, which I'll probably be able to afford as soon as I get my income tax refund.

I am saving up for a Mac Book Pro, but the gift card I got is from Sears and they do not sell Macs there. So I decided to look for the piano keyboard. I first saw it in the Sears Christmas cataloq, and they had the regular 88 piano key keyboard, the 66 key one, and the 76 one, that was inbetween. Well of course once Christmas was over, the only two left were the 66 key ones and the 76 key one. I wish they had the regular 88 key piano keyboard, but I guess I am out of luck as I have to use the card by the end of November.

grand piano - Here is a grand piano. It is beautiful but takes up a lot of space in my living room.
The keyboard. Sometimes you have to feed the soul too. Put up with the old frying pan for a while longer or scrimp on something else instead of the keyboard. It is not like you are going out and buying something you already have like those people with a hundred shoes go shopping for more shoes.
