I measure a purchase not by dollars and cents, but by how much time it takes me from my family. As a working mom, I feel like I’m never at home and am missing out on so much. So for me, that box of cereal equals 15 minutes away from my kids.
Name brand shoes that someone wants because “everyone else has them” can equal an entire day away from my kids. Now that may be fine, I just think about – is it worth it? Spending a day at an amusement park with my family is worth it.
A pair of “beats” headphones is not. Driving a car with no air conditioning in the south outweighs working a whole week just to make a car payment on a new car.
