Case in point: light bulbs.
I switched to compact fluorescents before the boom hit, and while they were still expensive.
I then jumped over to LED's, even though they won't pay for themselves via energy saving until after I'm dead.
I generally like them. You get a lot of light for a low energy cost. Still, there is that big up front cost, but it is slowly coming down.
Here is my problem. And, maybe it's a combination of new bulbs and older eyes, but I have an issue discerning navy blue from black.
On a recent weekend, before work, I selected what I thought was a navy suit, along with a light blue shirt and red tie. When I got to work, I discovered the suit was actually black. It didn't go well with the light blue shirt and red tie, and I felt uncomfortable throughout the entire broadcast.
I try my best. I look at my clothing selections in different lights-- daylight, flashlight, fluorescent, LED. Sorry, there are no incandescent bulbs left in the house.
I think it's going to come down to sticking a note in the pocket, noting the correct color.
