Are you the I have to buy new stuff cus the old looks dated and doesn't fit the decor, I don't mean bikes because dated is soo cool there, I mean household stuff, or are you the I'll use it until it gives out and I have to buy another how begrudgingly I commit to do it.
I am of the latter type I hate having to buy new stuff and nothing matches like my cooker is black but the rest is white except the tumble drier which has gone a yellow colour these days, well the plastic has. The tumble drier is 10 years old the cooker is 6, but that's because the thirty year old gas cooker became dangerous. The microwave is 25 years old we've had it 20 years, was my mums. we have a new washing machine as the other rotted, it was falling apart as they took it away, and fridge freezer is new as the door snapped of our 15 year old one, the television is not so old that it has a wood paneling on it but it probably weighs more than our Volvo
I just love running things into the ground before I'll willingly pay out for another, we have insurance which has soo paid for itself just in tumble drier repairs.
So what camp are you in?
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
