There are only a few indulgences. My pen collection is too big. Thankfully, I've stopped adding to it.
I have too many tee shirts, even though the only place you see me wear them is at the gym.
Baseball caps are all over the place.
I can't resist a tie sale.
On the other hand, I can be very frugal.
I still have a tube TV. It's working great, and dumping it for a flat HD model seems wasteful. It's no big deal.
Sometimes, frugality gets me in to trouble.
I have tons of razor blades. I buy them when they're on sale or I have a coupon. There are always plenty of extras in the bathroom-- different makes and models.
I have this horrible habit of using a blade one day too many. There have been many mornings I've left the house raw, irritated, and occasionally, a little bloody. Thank heaven for Bactine and Aveeno lotion.
Baseball executive Branch Rickey once said that it's better to trade a player one year early rather than one year late. I have to adopt that philosophy with razor blades.
