Whenever I think I have to have something or that I’ve found a deal I can’t pass up, I remind myself that there with always be something else. Something newer and shinier. The newest best things today are tomorrow’s Goodwill donations. Target will always have a clearance rack, Goodwill will always have $5 jeans, yard sales will always have household stuff for $1, and there will always be catalogs with nice things in them making what I have now look like old news.
I can find a deal next week, next month, next year. I can’t get time back with the people who matter most. There won’t always be kids doing firsts, and moments that they want to be hugged are slipping away much too quickly. I’ll take a clearance deal another day. Today, I’m soaking up the things I won’t be able to find in a store next week.
