I am in the mood of buying stuff..
Whether this is good or bad, I have no idea.
Sure, if I buy things I want (i.e. not necessarily need), I would spend money and save less.
That is a loss. Kind of.
If I buy, then I can enrich my life, my activities.
What do I want, by the way, that creates this dilemma?
You know I am highly excited about baking bread – it is a great adventure 🙂
I want to have a dutch oven, a bench cutter, and a sifter, in addition to semolina drum flour, rye flour, and buckwheat flour. These are all can be purchased with around $100 – 150.
I certainly do not need this, but would love to have them. After all, rather than buying these I may continue with my current abilities: I can bake the loafs in my oven-safe dishes/cookie sheet; I have a small dough cutter, which is not fully functional but nevertheless works; I have all purpose, whole wheat, bread, and corn flour at home, which I can use to make breads.
Yet, there is some kind of excitement in wishing to have the other items; to make my bread adventure almost full 🙂
I would love to have one or two nice carpets. Not the synthetic ones, real, hand-made ones. They are rightfully very expensive, but it does not defer me from wanting them.
I would love to have an additional pantry cabinet; it would have it in the laundry room and place in all the cleaning products, like laundry detergents, dryer sheets, etc.
I also would love some more artwork/decorative pictures around the house; in the living room, bed room, and the bathrooms…
well, all of these would possibly cost me thousands 🙂
eeerk! No way I am paying that much money now 🙂
I guess I will have to opt to buy the baking-related items for now. It is possible that I can save some more money by being careful about my weekly spending, which can be then leveraged to purchase them. I may be able to use my fun funds perhaps…
Hope is a good thing 🙂
