Shame on me

I just spent $160. on Amazon for stuff I don't need but think I do. Except for the bubble bath from France it was all cooking related.

I will soon have everything I need to make tortillas from scratch (that stuff cost a bundle). I also bought this pressure cooker cook book which I need and was a bargain compared to the other stuff.

Just yesterday I spent $300. on ball valves for the fish room. What ever will I do with myself? I pay my credit cards on in full every month unless I have a disaster which can take a few months...But I spend all my excess money on my passions. At my age this is not a good way of doing.

Don't worry about it. You can't take it with you. I've never seen a U-Haul behind a hearse, except on the Internet. And we all know, everything you see/read on the Internet is true.

No worries, Liz. You earned, you spend it! As Katie said, you can't take it with you! (Well, Rex Harrison did in The Honey Pot, but that's probably not the norm.)

Don't feel bad, we spent $79.00 for 13.3# of this.




It was $5.94 #. Good thing we have a Food Saver.

I just hope that when my time comes I'll walk outside and get struck by a bolt of lightning.

Both my parents died quickly of heart attacks. I figured that's how I'll do it too.

Spend it while you got it, says I! We no longer need "stuff", so we mostly spend our money on vacations. And food at Costco.

Good one Katie. Thanks for the laugh.

Liz,
We spent a good bit last year upgrading the kitchen.
Heck the stove and refrigerator we got 5 years ago cost less than what I spent last year.
Note: The appliances were not exactly new. The lady only used them for about 3 months before getting a divorce. I don't think she had even turned on the oven. We got them both for $400.

Last year, new toaster oven (fits a 9 by 13 pan), new bread machine, used kitchenaid with most of the accessories, new steamer, new stockpot, 2nd food chopper, tortilla press, tortilla holders, big cast iron pizza pan for cooking the tortillas, deep fryer, new strainers and I have forgotten what all else. I think grand total was $600. Oh and a bread keeper. The 19 piece measuring cup and spoon set times 2.
Not to mention all the various little things rescued from the thrift store.
And assorted cheap cookbooks.

So don't feel bad about the spending, we all need to upgrade sometimes and what you bought should last a lifetime.
