Re: Defending the box
Whenever I feel guilty about a purchase I've made, I think about what I
could have done with the money instead. More often than not, I find that I
could have just as easily blown it on several meaningless things (cups of
coffee or soft drinks and junk food at a nearby 7-11 over the course of the
week could easily total $20.00 and eating out one night with a date is
usually between $20.00 and 30.00, not including tip). If you buy a groo
item for $20.00, it will be with you indefinitely--you can enjoy looking at
the lunchbox or reading $20.00 worth of comics for a lifetime--for a onetime
investment of $20.00. That dinner (which could suck) is only a couple of
hours worth of entertainment, but the lunchbox is the gift that keeps on
giving . . .
Whenever I purchase a high-priced item that I want (but could live without)
I justify it by substituting that purchase for either another purchase or
activity that I would normally have made that week, etc.
But then again, you may be wise not want to take the advice of a guy who
chooses a lunchbox over nourishment . . .
