Hey Lisa, do you reckon if I squeeze my eyes closed really tight whilst clinging to the good side of the wishbone, a slow cooker will magically appear before me? (the big Ronson one is half price at Target this week...but I just blew all the cash on fathers day goodies. damnation!!!!) Lisa x

I saw a really cheap one in my local cash converters, do you have one in a town near you? Maybe you have a friend who has one who doesn't use it and might sell it to you cheaply?
Otherwise you'll just have to start saving - I love mine so much!!!
