Hi guys! It’s so funny how are persoective changes as we learn our lessons!
A Great example:
Saturday on my way to visit my kid and get her a new twin bed, I decided to stop at some garage sales! It was early so why not!
I immediatly found a bed set! $25.00 for everything. Unfortunatly kid didnt like the headboard.
So I got back on the road and decided to stop by the Salvation Army where we got her last mattress, brand new.
The cost of a mattess, boxspring and frame: just over $200.00!
When I told a friend they said “wow thats cheap!”
Um not compared to 25.00. Fortunatly I took the lady’s number and I called her and I set it up so my kids dad could pick it up the next day!
Now that is CHEAP! The mattress was only 2 years old and in perfect condiotion.
I got a topper and sprayed it with Lysol anyway!
Because she still needs a laptop! Well, I took care of that too! $200.00 at Best Buy. They had a one day sale to compete with Amazon Prime. Its a Lenovo. Its not the Mac Book that all the other kids have but my kid is fine with that.
I need to do a few things to it before I give it to her but its great!!!
There is always ways to make things happen if you don’t expect to buy the best or the top of the line.
Sometimes I feel like the less expensive options are actually the best option, even if I were rolling in it.
I still have tuition and books to worry about!
Thank god I don’t need anything that I don’t already have!
If you are just starting out this journey just be wise, live and have a nice life, get what you need, but also get what you want! You have to make this livable!
Now go get some gladiolas at the market, they are $2.00!!!
