I had a discussion with my Bestie about wealth and waste. She shared with me that one of our mutual friends sold many of her purses, shoes and other accessories to rid herself from debt. Her goal was to become debt free and at any cost. That got me to thinking about the things that we buy and knowing that we will only use or wear it only once. In many instances I don’t think that its intentional waste, it just seems to happen like that.
As we continued to talk, I thought about my other BFF who still has her wedding dress tucked in the back of the closet. It probably won’t see the light of day, never, ever again. My other bestie still has her high school prom dress tucked away in the closet. Ha! I guess she’s looking to relive that day of 15 years earlier or maybe she’s going to grease up and attempt to slide back in it. *shrugs* I rented my prom dress because I couldn’t see myself buying one.
Whatever “that” item is for you, just know that you’re not alone. However, these days I love that you can rent almost anything. Well except for a kidney, brain or toenails. But you get my drift. I mean from a motor home to my white Ashton Martin trimmed in chrome with the chrome rims and peanut butter interior.
Can’t a girl dream….
I can see myself now enjoying a cool summer day with the top down of my Ashton Martin singing, “summer breeze, makes me feel fine…” Thanks to Erento it’s possible, even if only for one day…
What buried deep in your closet that you’ve only worn once or twice. Would it have been better to rent the item instead of buying? Please share.
