Day 2732 – When It’s Worth Spending A Little Bit More For Quality – or – I Have A Reading Problem

As I go through life, my mindset about spending money has changed. There are times when I don’t want to spend $25 for a t-shirt, but then I realize how long I wear my shirts and if I figured out the daily cost, it’s so minuscule. Seriously, I wear my shirts at least 10 years, you should see the holes…

I ended up at the library today and found a few books on my “to be read list.” I had a reusable bag I purchased from Five Below or was gifted, I can’t remember. Not the best quality bag, but I’ve used it pretty extensively. I kept piling in children’s book after children’s book. Then I heard a snap as one of the straps broke. I past a kid who saw my bag and said “I want one mommy!” I thought, you can have it kid! As I made my way through the library and added even more books, the other side snapped. It made me wish I brought one of my canvas reusable bags. It also made me think I am totally ok with purchasing another canvas bag for my library books.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
