So this time around, she passed on making a purchase. She had this to say about it:
$300 is a nice chunk of cash. You could buy a cashmere sweater, have an incredible dinner in NYC, you could pay part of your electric bill or phone bill, buy 25 new cd's (based on the price), you could even buy an ipod. So, i basically said, thanks but no thanks.
A (one) sweater?
Part of your electric bill?
Part of your phone bill?
I complain when my cell phone + land line + electric + water adds up to $300. And electric is a big part of that. It goes from $75-80 in the summer to almost double in the winter. I was looking at putting in some solar just to get that down under a hundred (and be able to use the electric heat in the basement without feeling so guilty). I'm beginning to suspect that a normal year's income wouldn't last me a month in New York.
