Satisfaction Delayed

I have had (mostly) the same furniture for over 15 years.

I have had the same TV for 12 years.

I haven't spent more than $50 for a pair of pants or $30 for a shirt in the last decade.

I buy my socks by the bag and wear them until there are holes.

My last belt cost me $2. I'm still wearing it.

I've had the same towels, which are now quite frayed, for over 15 years.

The sheets on my bed cost me less than $50 for the set.

The comforter on my bed is over 15 years old. It was a gift.

And on and on and on…

Why do I tell you all of this? Today… today I paid off my mortgage! Next month? Shopping!
