I’m a bit of an odd duck, if I’m being clear with you.
- Focusing on stuff that has no real value is incredibly difficult to pull off these days.
I simply don’t spend money for stuff that I feel is stupid or unneccessary for living. I don’t fall for special incentives with hidden costs. The poor door to door sales people get a door in their face. But, there is also a large down side to being this way. I have passed up chances that I have definitely kicked myself repeatedly for not taking full advantage of in the past. Many times I have cost myself some cash being the difficult way I am. I have a father in law who will buy every stupid extended warranty out there. It staggers our mind to guess the amount of cash he has thrown away. However, it has paid off for him with his Heating as well as A/C when it failed. I have to say that he got his cash out of that wonderful extended warranty deal. While I am not an extended warranty type of person, but I do firmly hold on to the value of preventive repair. The Heating as well as A/C plan at our home is truly quite fancy. The manufacturer’s warranty was registered long before I even turned it on for the first time. As soon as the upgrade was over, I called the Heating as well as A/C supplier from down the street in addition to signed up for the seasonal repair service package that they offer. There is simply no way that I would spend the amount of cash on something such as an Heating as well as A/C unit in addition to not take sparkling care of it. While I didn’t get the extended warranty, I won’t need it down the line, because I put our cash into preserving our investment.
