Given the current tough economic times — otherwise known at our house as the New Normal — we’ve had to cut way back on our impulse purchases. As I’ve told my husband, Mark, no more going out to the store for milk and coming home with a new tractor.
This need to be financially responsible comes more easily to me than to him; I’m a tightwad by nature. That’s probably why it took me so long to make my latest purchase. After months of hemming and hawing, last week I finally decided to just take the leap and do it.
