    The post was great Valerie and struck a chord with me. Some years back I decided to use those things I had thought too good to use except on special occasions. This on the basis that in the end you can’t take them with you when you depart which makes them suddenly less special. I now wear my best watches, use my mother’s crystal wine glasses and treat myself to good sneakers annually (they don’t last long these days), and some nice clothes. Life is too short to skimp.
