I Almost Got Bit by Affluenza

May 28th, 2007 at 03:56 am

I actually tried to talk DH into getting a flat panel HDTV today. I don't know what got into me. But they had a 27 inch one on sale today and tomorrow for $399, no rebates necessary, just flat priced. And I wanted it! DH talked me down. Sigh. Why did he go and have to get responsible all of a sudden, pout, pout.

That's okay, we don't need it and its not in the budget and we are planning it for Christmas as our present anyway. Patience, patience. Follow the plan.

    Must be going around ... My husband came to me about buying a $239 driver this morning. After a little chat, he fortunately agreed that the one he has right now is just fine, and that it was simply a case of "lusting after the latest technology."

    It IS hard to resist the "great deals". Good job on continuing to follow your plan!

    You're fortunate to have a spouse who's your partner in remaining steadfast, you know.

    Hehe, me too. DS tipped half a bottle of water near the TV the other week and it started shorting and tripping the circuit breaker. Thought the TV had died at first as it wouldn't work but then DH lifted it up so I could clean up all the water underneath it and it worked again. I told DH he almost got his 50" Plasma (the local department store was offering 30 months interest free deal) but thankfully the TV is still going strong! DH may have found his "New Computer Fund" turning into a "New TV Fund" Wink
