Hubby and his favorite cookies taught me a lesson this week.
I spent $3.99. Yes, $3.99 on Oreos this week.
Here is how it went…
Me: Going to the store, is there anything you want?
Me: Chips Ahoy are BOGO this week, so I will get you two packs.
Hubby: Those sound good, but I really want some Oreos too.
Me: Oreos are expensive and not on sale, we will see.
Hubby: I will transfer you $3 from my lunch money if you will get them for me.
Me: Speechless. Guilty. Convicted. Ugly. Sorry.
This week I was reminded that doing little things for the people we love is more important than saving $2. Perhaps I won’t buy Oreos every time. And sometimes Oreos will be on sale.
But now and then, hubby is going to get $3.99 Oreos. Because he is important. He is loved. And buying full priced Oreos is one way I can show it.
My lesson learned is my success story for the week.
Do you have a success story to share?
