I’m not as cheap as I should be. I’m learning to be cheap. My parents didn’t grow up in the depression. They were just poor. And so when I started making money, all I really understood was how to spend it. I was spending more than I was making and I have learned (again) that this is dumb.
So today, when I dribbled coffee on my shirt, I debated – buy a new shirt? Or stop for stain remover. In my past spending habits, I would have used this as an excellent excuse to buy a new shirt. Instead, I opted for the stain remover. $2.99. Lots cheaper than a new shirt.
Although – the stain is still kind of there. Maybe I should be drinking more water. Coffee $4. Water – free. That would have solved both problems.
