I readily admit to being a bit of an impulse buyer.
Not a completely out-of-control impulse buyer, just an occasional, when the mood hits impulse buyer.
I'd worry about it more if the mood "hit" more regularly, but it really doesn't. I can usually talk myself out of most purchases, so I don't spend a lot of money on a regular basis. Especially since I rarely even think of buying things. Especially not expensive things.
However, when I decide I want to buy something and it fits into how I perceive my life, I buy it. As immediately as possible.
Last night, I decided I wanted a new tv so I could put my old one in front of my exercise bike, and with that, the decision was made. Within an hour, I had purchased this:
It's a Samsung 26" Flatscreen TV. I've named it Norman. Just kidding! Who would name their television! Honestly!
It's really light-weight so easy to carry, which was important as I live on the third floor. It was also surprisingly easy to set-up and I was watching it shortly after arriving back home. It fits my home well - not too big and overwhelming, but big enough. I invited my new neighbors up to see it, and they approve. Now they want a flatscreen tv, too.
It's funny because I have NEVER wanted a flatscreen tv before. And yet, I now have one.
Life has a sense of humor.
