I agree that things like new furnishings and clothing are unlikely to improve my life, but if we buy a big screen TV, Japanese chef's knife, Vitamix/Blendtec, won't we have better experiences?!I've been postponing those big-ticket purchases for ages, and sometimes I wonder what I'm waiting for.ASIDEWe canceled our cable bundle before our recent 2-month RV trip (speaking of experiences ;-), just keeping the internet service. We're saving 2% of our gross monthly income! I didn't think it was that much, but unless I calculated incorrectly, 2-effing-percent for landline phone and cable TV service. wowsers! So not worth it. We typically don't even watch a single TV program or movie 2 days a week, and on another day or 2 just watch a DVD that we own.We're home for some weeks before leaving on our next RV trip. We're watching a little free TV on DH's desktop computer--recent episodes on the shows' websites. We'll be home longer after our next trip and plan to sign up for online Netflix and maybe Hulu for more options, so that 2% savings will become more like 1.5%. But it sure was easy! Now to explain to our August house guests why we can't watch TV...
