I laugh at my grandkids when they see something on TV or in the store that they think they need. “I want that… I want that.” And then I point out that you can’t have everything that you see that you want.
Then, somebody like Simmons’ Sporting Goods has their annual tent sale. I go. I see the prices.
“I want that…. I want that.” Oops. Your chance is coming up quickly, July 26 – August 13.
And the funny thing is, before I went in, I didn’t even know I needed it. Life’s amazing, isn’t it?
PS – I’ve gotten a lot of good deals at the tent sale, but I’ll never forget one of them. It wasn’t even outdoors related. They had dozens of college football caps for sale and there was a pile of Ole Miss caps on sale for $1 each. I bought six of them and presented them to a friend who was an Ole Miss fan at a morning meeting at work (yes, I used to do that). I told him they were giving them away because nobody would buy one. It was worth the six dollars (yes, I’m like that).
