Things in CSS are sometimes bit tedious to write, especially when it’s comes to CSS3 and those vendor prefixes that exist. But with a mixin it’s lets you make groups of CSS declarations that you want to re-use throughout your site and you can even pass in values to make your mixin more flexible than ever.
