I love to get a bargain and a great deal.
There have been lots of times this year when I wanted to make a purchase, but I didn’t because it wasn’t a very good deal.
I hate to pay retail prices for anything, but I love to shop at the flea market or the salvage yard in Lakeland. When I can get a bargain, I feel very proud of myself. Sometimes my wife says that I am too cheap. Last year there was a time when the air conditioner broke down in the living room and my wife wanted the two of us to go to the hardware store and buy a brand new machine. I know the cost of air conditioners at the Lakeland hardware store and I didn’t want to spend $400 on a brand new machine. There was only a month or six weeks left of the hot and humid weather and I convinced my wife that we should wait. In December, there were a lot of used air conditioners available at the flea market. I decided to purchase two 18,000 BTU unit air conditioners. When it started to get one this year, I told my wife that we didn’t have to worry about calling a Lakeland AC company because I had the problem handled. I installed one of the air conditioners in the living room and I installed the other air conditioner in the garage. We have to pay about $50 more every month for our air conditioning costs, but the indoor air quality is much cooler and nicer.
