I need to stop being so cheap with all of the purchases I make on a day to day basis.
It’s 1 thing to stop at a crappy fast food joint to get something off the value menu so you can get calories in your stomach for less currency.
However, you shouldn’t be taking your source of transportation to the cheapest mechanic you can possibly find. I lived through that situation more times than I would like to admit over the years. I thought I was paying for brand new brake rotors to be put in our car, but he used old rotors with new brake pads in addition to figured I wouldn’t find out. Needless to say, I never went back to this mechanic again in addition to made sure to leave a setback review on the internet. When I needed a new window air conditioner for our wifey’s attic art studio, I was being cheap in addition to figured both of us could just go with whatever the cheapest model was available at the closest superstore, but this was a critical error. The cheapest window air conditioner in Orland Park, IL also happened to be the loudest 1, in addition to I right away felt awful for our wifey upon turning it on for the absolutely first time. I knew that it would be a constant source of anxiety in addition to annoyance so I put it back in the box in addition to returned it to the store. There’s no sense in keeping a $300 device if it’s too loud for normal, everyday use. Thankfully both of us found a better window air conditioner that wasn’t nearly as loud while cycling. I should have bought the better window air conditioner from the start.
