OK funny story about the wife OKing my purchase. We built our house and haven't had a formal dinning room table so we have an empty room. She said there was no way I was going to buy this new tv until she gets a dining room table! So, I'm thinking wow this tv is going to cost me $1k more! Well I have this 5 gal. water bottle I have been throwing change in for quite a while now. Resourceful me thinks hmm I wonder how much change is in there. Well me and my daughters set out to count it. Well low and behold I had managed to save $900!!!!
I put the change in the kitchen with a note "Here ya go sweetie, go find you a table!!!!!"
It is amazing how quickly change adds up. You must have one heck-of-a wife, if she is buying a formal dining table and chairs for only $1K. That purchase can easily be $2K or $3K when the Mrs. is furnishing a new house.
My "OK" for the TV purchase was my wife getting office furniture. We had a computer armoire that had virtually no desk space, and occasionally the keyboard tray would fall out. She got the office furniture, and then "needed" a lap top. Since my wife works at home, at least some, I was OK with the purchase of office furniture, but she wanted an executive type desk. Needless to say, after that purchase, and the laptop, I was home-free.
2 years no interest at Ultimate Electronics helped too.
