Recently I finished a set off doors for our home. I’m really happy with the results. But it got me thinking about how $1000 can look differently every time. With each and every purchase or experience being worthwhile.
I treated my wife to a night out on the town at a spa and hotel. We needed that time off. Wedgewood Hotel and Spa
We bought tickets to Queen for the five of us. Such an amazing show. Queen
We now have a back up generator for when the power goes out. Like it does every year… sometimes for days on end.
My son got a pair of Long Track Speed Skates. Chasing that Olympic Dream! Fastest Ice
We bought a couple of kayaks and accessories. Gotta stay in shape as we grow older. Kayak Adventure
That’s all from this year. In the past- a thousand dollars bought three iPad Minis, or a video game system and accessories, or tickets to Disneyland, even a new mattress…
Like they say, a thousand here and thousand there- pretty soon it adds up to real money.
I’m starting to feel broke. Maybe it’s time to slow down on the spending. The kids need a post secondary education. A thousand bucks might buy a couple of textbooks.
