Well that was fun. After a recent unexpected paycheck, I went a bit wild, buying every CD that I wanted to buy (used, of course), stocking up on some movies (on sale or used, of course), even buying a couple books (yes, the paper kind!) and also going food shopping 2 or 3 times a week. But these good things have come to an end, as it appears I’ve just blown through the last of it.
Back to being frugal. Or trying. But damn that was fun, living like I earn more. The freedom of just taking what you like simply because you like it, was great. And it is not like I was being wasteful; I was only getting what I had a genuine interest in.
I suppose, as this country enters into a depression, I won’t be the only one who is wistful for such times.
