Need vs Want
I grew up poor. Like- welfare, free cheese, and 4 sizes too big hand me down clothes- poor.
Anyways, I sometimes get things that I want into my head and can't shake it out.
Like a stroller that I want. Jamie is the last kid I'll ever have. I know from experience that a good stroller is necessary. I have a battle-ram travel system stroller that weighs about 49 pounds, takes up every last inch of my trunk and is impossible to steer. I want something small, that can fit in my trunk with extra room for stuff, that I can take out one handed and not feel like I'm going to burst a back muscle. Seriously.
I did research. I want an Uppababy G-luxe stroller. It's $160 bucks. Youch!!
There's no way in hell I'm paying that much. Sigh.
And LLBean....oh, don't get me started. They have a new Signature line. I want everything...
These!! $100 bucks for shoes that I can only wear 5 months out of the year and I can't chase down kids in!?! Do I need these?? No.
I really want to go places and see things. Fiber fest season is coming. Hubs gave clearance for me to go to WOOL....sigh.
Sometimes I feel like I'm back in the 6th grade, wishing that money grew on trees.
Oh well, at least I have knitting to keep my mind busy!
