I can admit that I’m not the type of person who enjoys spending money very much.
People might call me a cheapskate and I wouldn’t even disagree with them.
I can definitely acknowledge that I am a fan of saving my cash rather than spreading it around. If there’s ever an opportunity to keep money in the bank I’m going to leave on it. However, that’s exactly the reason why I thought it was a good idea to go ahead and spend a lot of money to upgrade our central heating, cooling, and air quality control equipment this year. No, our central heating and cooling equipment didn’t spontaneously break down. We weren’t in the middle of an air quality control disaster that necessitated an immediate air conditioner or forced air furnace replacement. In fact, the central air quality control devices were chugging along with reasonable reliability. However, I knew that it was only a matter of time before our indoor air temperature devices began to fail. I thought it was a good idea to go ahead and replace the entire HVAC system before we were in a real pickle. Too bad, my wife does not agree with my financial planning. She is convinced that it was a better idea to wait for the inevitable HVAC destruction before we tried to find high quality indoor air handling devices. Even though we’re saving a ton of money on energy bills now and we won’t need a professional repair service for the foreseeable future, my wife is very upset with the new HVAC units. No matter how many times I remind her that she married a master cheapskate, she’s convinced that I wasted all of our money.
