Some Stuff is just no Fun to Buy
A few years ago we purchased a new fridge/freezer. Some things are just no fun to buy.
A new car is fun. Everyone on the block used to drop by when you got a new car…no more, but you can still show them off and that new car smell alone makes them a big deal and fun to buy. A new large screen TV is fun to buy and enjoyable every time you turn it on.
A new fridge…yawn.
We moved the old fridge to the garage. The extra fridge was the best part of getting a new fridge, but still it was not an exciting purchase.
Last week we replaced the old garage fridge with a new garage fridge. The old one was clunky, I did not like how we had to store frozen goods, they were hard to get to. The seal was crappy and we had a frost problem and it probably was not too efficient. So, we are happy with the new one, it does improve our life a bit, but still…yawn.
I don’t like to spend money. I am tight as a drum. If not for Mrs. C we would seldom go out to eat, take vacations or replace old crap. I like bang for my buck, something that will keep giving, stuff that is just fun. A new bowling ball, new golf clubs, you know, fun stuff.
When I spend money, I prefer it to be on something I will use time and time again and always look forward to using it.
Mrs. C said I could get something fun for my 75th birthday.
You know, like this!
