I decided to purchase a new toy for my kitchen. This doesn’t happen often as I’m generally very frugal, however it was a good deal and it’s something I’ve been wanting.
The reviews were pretty good and I took into account random comments about the product not heating up quickly enough or not working properly. Sometimes you get a bad one and need to return it! I also decided the Instant Pot was not something I was ready to purchase and chose a product kinder to my pocket book.
More on wanting:
I am not a fan of wanting. When I find myself walking around the store thinking of all the great things I can use in the kitchen or the house it’s paramount that I pull back. Take a figurative step back and really think about why I am wanting these things. Are they really going to make my life easier? Are they going to give me more time? Are they going to make my family healthier and happier just by making the purchase?
The answer is most likely no in every situation. But, when I take the time to think about a purchase sometimes my wanting is justified. This is such an example. Recently we have become more busy than normal with a few evening classes beginning for a few family members. There is also more evening work that will be done in the next few months. Therefore, being able to cook a chicken dinner in 20 minutes instead of an hour is a huge help. Not only will it decrease cook time, but it will provide us with the opportunity to eat healthier. Any excuse to make pizza when we are short on time is taken advantage of in our household.
So I’d like to end by saying I am happy with my new purchase, and I feel it was a wise decision.
