Celebratory leeks

September 18th, 2014 at 06:11 am

Convo from this morning, with the SO who also paid off his student loans earlier this year --

SO: I wanted to have a FUCK YEAH NO MORE STUDENT LOANS reward.

SO: But then I did the thing I always do when I attempt to reward myself.

SO: Go: "Do I really need to?"

SO: But maybe we can have a nice Fuck Student Loans dinner some day.

SO: Probably not.

Me: Why don't we have a nice Fuck Student Loans purchase of leeks, and make, I dunno… pho or something.

SO: Snicker.


SO: Sounds good.

(Pho is one of our favorite meals, but we shop sales 90% of the time and leeks are NEVER on sale.)

And for anyone who's keeping track, we did not get the celebratory walnuts last weekend (still balked at the price when not on sale, heh), but we did get a $2 bag (14-oz) of discontinued Skittles from Ocean State Job Lot, because apparently Skittles went gelatin-free in 2010, and I HAD NO IDEA. I haven't had Skittles since 2002 (when I went veg), so I was totes excited.

I love that we can appreciate the little, inexpensive things. They honestly make us way happier than typical consumerism.

    I am amazed by how much money people tend to spend in the name of "celebrating debt payoff". It seems like a vicious cycle of consumerism, to me. (Extra noticeable because the only debt we ever plan to pay off is our mortgage! Being all cash, otherwise, we don't have the justification for the endless rewards we watch our friends splurge on. You don't splurge on a treat every time you pay cash for a big purchase. Big Grin )

    I was wondering if I had read that title correctly. Now it make sense.
