I always come back to this theme in my life~ the value of money. The latest internal battle I am having with myself is regarding a Kindle.
I am a book lover and reluctant to give up my books. However with amazon prime my BFF and their new lending plan I am finding it more difficult to rationalize not having one. As you all know I debated an iPad forever before happily buying the Macbook Air~ which I love. So here I am again. I looked online and the Kindle Touch is a mere $150~ or as I like to think of it~ a cashmere sweater from J Crew.
By the way I have a bag of two new cashmere sweaters from J Crew sitting untouched~ one black. I could return it and rationalize my purchase quite easily. As I kept looking I noticed the new Fire for $50 extra. I have been debating this all day. The cost of $200 is minimal when I consider it does not even buy me one of these let alone the pair!!!!!
Yet I hem and haw. Finally my husband said, just do it. So I did. Buyers remorse~ I am going to go read my BOOK in bed soon. ZIP is in my step.
Tomorrow I am considering taking a back to back class at the gym. I have no right to do this~ I have a full schedule~ but I have been working like a mad woman, I have to hit the mall the day after Christmas and I think I deserve it. I won’t be able to walk on Friday but I think that is okay. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
Everyday a new box arrives from Amazon and since I last noted my daily purchases I have made at least one purchase a day.
Time to read…..
