I am rich (plus I got quickies)

February 20th, 2007 at 01:49 am

I looked at a pack of 2 black dry erase markers for 2.17, pack of color for 2.99, and color with hangers and erasers attatched for 3.99.

I was looking at those dry erase options thinking 'I am rich, I can afford to pay the extra to get color, just because I want to'. I also thought I am smart, I am not paying extra for hangers, I store them in a bag in the threering binder I use.

The truth is, I can do the same work with black as with color. I don't even need the marker at all, I could use something cheaper, scratch paper, or something. I could keep using the faded one I have.

But I could afford to buy the color dry erase markers, and that little choice makes me, rich.

And now for the quickies:

*also bought a rice steamer for my birthday, mom said go buy one, and I did. Felt great to be able to just buy it (cost a bit more than the markers...)

*husband found some silicone bakeware on sale, bought a LOT.....and said 'I can't help it, I get excited when things are on sale'....I didn't say anything, I could hear his acnowledgement of how silly it was in his voice, and anyway I think I can give them as gifts.

*more stuff was sold! more stuff out of the house, though also more postage...though supposedly at some point I will get some back from that.

    I've been hearing bad things about silicone bakeware. If I were going to buy some, I'd look for brand-specific testimonials on the internet first. Is husband going to bake with it? My dang husband knows how to make the best bread, but doesn't enjoy it, so never makes it.

    Hehe, quickies. Big Grin
    Yeah, I heard that silicone is toxic if ingested, and they can be stripped off of pans by metal spatulas for example. I don't know how big an issue that is, but I would be careful about that.

    Yeah no metal, they are liners for muffins, so no metal is ever needed. just peel and pop out.
