Question:

Can I purchase a new coffee maker if it is on sale now? It is something I want, not a necessity. Husband will also use it.

Answer:

It is permitted for an avel to buy a new coffee maker, etc. even during shloshim. The prohibition is not to buy new clothing or items that one would make a shehechiyanu, but a coffee maker doesn’t fall into that category
