Shopping trip

July 14th, 2007 at 11:08 pm

Today I spent $19.55 on drawer organizers and $2.50 for bottles of water from a vending machine.

My cousin, on the other hand, bought a set of towels, a set of blinds, some garbage bags and sponges -- and a NEW RANGE!

I know she has money, but it really floors me how a casual shopping trip can result in a major purchase for her. Granted, her current stove is not in great shape -- but we didn't set out to buy a stove, just a few things. It wasn't even on sale.

We are so different. She is not wasteful, but she is certainly ready to spend. I have to squeeze every nickel. I just hope we continue to get along!

    I hope she has an endless supply of money!
    If you are going to be cooking, the new stove will be nice for you, too.
    You can cook frugal meals on her not-so-frugal stove!

    Yes, the stove will be very nice for me, and I will do most of the cooking. I think she bought it for my sake, which makes me feel a bit guilty.

    She doesn't have an endless supply of money, but she owns several commercial buildings in Florida and earns quite a bit from renting out the offices. I don't know what her income is, but she has no financial worries.
