Good morning Dinks and happy Friday. This time next weekend I will be on a train on my way home to see my parents. As you may remember I don’t visit my hometown very often since my family fell apart almost three years ago, but I haven’t been home in a while and I got a really good deal on my train ticket.
I am taking a 5 hour round trip (10 hours total) for only $80. I know that may seem expensive to some of you because Amtrak is a lot less expensive than our rail system up here in Canada, but this is a trip that would normally cost over $150, so it’s a really good deal for us Canadians.
I thought that the phase of my life when I would carelessly buy things just because they were a good deal was over – but I guess not.
What is the last thing that you bought (but didn’t need) just because it was on sale?
