I bought a nice hammock that usually runs $200 for $45. A store owner is taking appointments to move inventory. My wife is going to buy a new patio set. Since we bought a new sectional two weeks ago, my wife is changing the living room and now the pool room. Pretty much removing all the furnishings in the pool room and starting over. Also bought two decent sized pygmy date palms in groups of three and two 25 gallon pots. Bought one of those 15' shade umbrellas.

Keg is full, garage fridge is packed to the gills with beer. Liquor cabinet inside stock, back up makeshift liquor cabinet in the garage stocked. Gotta have a garage beer fridge and garage liquor cabinet, you know?

I have started buying crowlers from local places after they stopped filling growler up. Cheaper and I don't have to store them. The wife was getting pissy

Hoarding cash at the moment, just in case. If both our jobs are good in August we’ll have the cash to:

Rent 80’ boom lift for tree trimming and removal.
4 truckloads of fill and skid steer rental to level off back corner of yard (from tree removal)
Build new 10x12 shed like I want to
New winter tires for her car before the snow flies

Right now we have been ordering food 1-4 times a week from a couple local joints to help them stay profitable.

I have to admit it's hard for me to understand how a roadbike costs as much as a motorcycle :P

Carbon fiber from stem to stern.  And electronic shifting.  Drives the price way up.  

 

My race bike is worth over $12k
