I'm not an impulse buyer--unlike a certain husband that shall remain nameless.
But sometimes...I wish I could be deliriously impractical and just buy something for the heck of it.
Today is not that day, but I came close. LOL
I was browsing online for sales when I came across a Worm Factory Composter. Some women want jewelry. Others want shoes or designer clothes. Me? I want a worm factory.
It was on sale for $71 at Jet.com, down from over $100. At first glance, a multi-tiered condo for future chicken food for 70 bucks seems like a great buy. But I know that the whole apparatus is a facade of marketing genius.
The only nice things about the whole contraption is that the bins are stackable and it sits on a base. The rest is fluff. I could make the same contraption (not nearly as pretty) for about ten bucks.
It sucks to be practical. My heart still wants to spend the money on the worm tower, but my brain says: Get off your bum and build it yourself.
Do you ever catch yourself wanting to buy something you know you could make cheaper?
Have you started shopping yet? What's the one impractical thing you'd love for yourself?
Aside from a worm farm, I've always wanted one of those electric pressure cookers. The one I want is still too expensive but I've got it on my Amazon wish list, waiting for it to go down in price. I'm patient. Sooner or later it'll go on sale.
