want vs need
i’ve been thinking more about wants, needs, marketing, and money in the past few weeks.
➤ i just read laura vanderkam’s all the money in the world on a whim last week [it was a quick read]
➤ we had been planning on taking a pretty extravagant trip at the end of fellowship, considering an all-inclusive resort [beaches turks & caicos] in the caribbean. yes, it may be a little cheesy and not a terribly mind-broadening experience, but we thought we could bring annabel and get a great blend of alone time + family time, as they have excellent child care. however, when we went to book it, we realized that financially we just can’t do it practically now. i was initially disappointed, but we’re going to do a lower-key adventure instead [maybe 2-3 days in the keys]. more importantly, i know i’ll enjoy a trip like that more when we’ve actually earned enough to afford it comfortably.
in reading the book, i realized i had a long list of material wants in my head. mind-dumping everything i could come up with:
** i feel motivated to get a professional bra fitting once i am done w/ breastfeeding. has anyone done this? where?
*** not super-luxe stuff, necessarily. just cute.
