Recently something unusual has happened, my finances have taken a rather positive turn for the first time in over a decade, maybe two! I now find myself more able to afford the things I want as opposed to just the things I need.
Now I'm not saying this to brag - that's not my style - plus I'm not that well off, just less restricted; the reason I mention it is I now have a new problem (a 'first world problem' I admit, but one I wasn't expecting).
I'm now finding myself trying to justify if I actually need what I wanted to buy!!
That nice Touch LCD Shield for Arduino - under £30 GBP - cool, would I use it? Probably! Do I need it? Nope, not really, but it would help me develop my Arduino skills . . . . and back on the shelf it goes and I leave the store!
I'm confused, is this normal, or is it just me? Because maybe, deep down, really deep down, I know what I'm like; I kinda know I might get around to using it, possibly, but maybe not.
Probably not . . . .
So there we are, anyone else had the same experiences or am I alone here?
P.S. I'm the kinda guy who, if you gave me £1M GBP to buy whatever car I wanted, I'd probably build my own instead!
