Okay, so I know that I just posted a short while ago, but I need to let off a little steam.
Have you ever had your thrifty ways come back to bite you? I hate it when that happens.
There are truly very few material things I wish for in life. But I came across something about a week ago that reminded me so much of the happiness of my youth, I simply longed to buy it. You know, nostalgia will get you every time.
So I went on Ebay and, sure enough, they had it (they have everything). Anyway, hubby had told me that he made a little money on the side and to buy it as my Christmas gift from him.
But could I? No!
I sat there squabbling with myself that I had just missed a buy-it-now price at $23 instead of the $27 that I could get it for now. So while I went back and forth...
The price on this item has raised to $60-$80!!! It's a limited edition item, so (obviously) there are only so many available. The big sellers have realized this, so up goes the price.
And to think that I could have had it for $27 :(
Errrrr... Sometimes I wish I could lose the thrifty mentality for just a few moments.
And no I'm not going to say what it is. If there's still one floating out there somewhere for a reasonable price (and I've checked all over the web), I don't want anyone ahead of me in line.
Yes, I'm that paranoid. *sigh*
