Purchases I Need, Yet...

There are two things that I have had on my "to buy" list for quite awhile now:
  1. Running Shoes
  2. Brake pads for my bike
As you might have guessed, these are pretty important purchases. There is only one reason that I haven't bought these things: I am frugal.

Alright, the shoes is more of a "I haven't had a chance to drive two hours to my regular shoe place and drive two hours back" situation. So it's frugal and lazy. Oh, what a great combination.

The logic of this whole situation is flawed. This is the type of logic of a person who doesn't want insurance "because they'll be careful". Fool, there are unplanned situations that happen in the future! When you get sick without the insurance, it's going to cost a hell of a lot more. Or you can't control what other drivers do.

My shoes are currently right under 600 miles. They say you should get new shoes every 300-500 miles. Ayup.
I'll get new shoes soon, I promise.

Other than that, I've been having a pretty swell day. Positive all around. So there's that.

What have you avoided purchasing that you really need?

  1. Go get the shoes and start breaking them in before your old shoes cash out. Trust me - Future Hannah will thank Past Hannah for that one.

    What have I been putting off? To be totally honest, it's time to roll over to the drug store to stock-up on hair products.
