Because of our wealth management New Year’s resolution, we have managed to avoid unplanned purchases. Sort of. I am still a work in progress because I just could not resist buying these..
Buy one, Take one shelves from ShopWise. I got both for only 599 bucks. A family that is addicted to Booksale can never have enough storage for books and magazines.
Buy One, Take One olive oil from a groupon site. I am not a member of any groupon site because I don’t want to be tempted into buying something on sale that I won’t really use. But 2 liters of olive oil for only 500 bucks is just too hard to resist especially since we use olive oil often for Franco’s favorite chicken dish.
Educational wooden blocks from Germany. From the same Japan Surplus store where we bought Aki’s slide, we found these brand-new, still-inside-the-plastic babies. Aki already has a set of wooden blocks from MindWerks. He definitely does not need another set. But there were just to many other reasons to take home the blocks. In terms of quality and safety, European wooden toys are better compared to those mass produced in China. Rarely do I find brand new toys in Japan surplus shop. I don’t know where else can I find these blocks. They were selling for only 60% less than the original price. More blocks means more creative structures, right?
So far, I am not regretting any of these latest buys but I am really hoping there won’t be any unplanned purchases for the next couple of weeks. Deadline for the payment for the second term is coming up next month! Yikes!
