Just realized how seldom I make 'big' purchases.

I guess my last big expense was my car, but I bought it in 2006. It is a 2005 & I bought it used. I'm hoping I never have to replace it & so far, so good. Right now, I work less than 2 miles from home & I really don't go too far except on my CASA home visits.

Last year I paid for my son's final expenses & I'm adding the grave marker this year. That all added up to be quite expensive.

Big as in thousands, was a new roof and siding for our home, that was last summer.

If we are talking what we would call a big purchase between my husband and I, it would be a food dehydrator.

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

A couple of years ago I bought a new set of pot and pans. They were expensive ! Now I wish I had saved the money and just got a cheap set from a local discount store, they would have worked about the same.....

My house. I paid cash for it. When DFIL passed he had enough under the mattress for our house.
