No Remorse

November 14th, 2006 at 12:16 pm

On Monday, I bought a travel alarm clock. I thought and thought about that $3.97 purchase out of my Household fund. A travel clock had been on my wish list for a few months. I hadnít expected to see it in a grocery outlet store, but there it was. I am very grateful that since I keep items on my mental wish list for a long time, and buy items as cheaply as possible, that I rarely have buyerís remorse. I think itís an under-looked bonus of being frugal. I am not a fan of regret, so the more I can avoid the better. When I finally buy the bookcase and shelving Iíve been wanting and looking for, I know Iíll be happy with it, partially because I didnít run out to the furniture store, point, buy, and run home. When the right bookcase at the right price appears, Iíll buy it with confidence.

When I decided to post every day, I had forgotten that I was leaving the house at 4:30 am and getting back at 10:30 at night. Iím flying to Sacramento for work. I wonít be able to bring my own water, which does chap my hide. The truth is I wrote this Tuesday post Monday night. I can live with it, same as I can live with my purchases!

    Have a safe trip--see you when you get home.
    I can't keep a very big mental wish list. I have to write it down. Then I don't know where it is....I need a new system!

    i write things down on the top of my left hand (seriously!). i always know where the list is, and if i loose my left hand i've got bigger problems than not being able to finish the items on my list!

    *snort* someone once called it my Palm pilot. HAAAAAAAAHAHAHAhahaha!

    Mine are on my right hand...I'm a leftie Smile But I do keep a long-term mental list - the hand is only for immediate needs (like "what did I come in this store for? Oh yeah, rice!")
