I started thinking this when I realized I had only put 3500 miles on my new car in its first year. I’m 57. Unless I start driving a lot more (or simply decide to get a different car), I realized that this car could easily outlast me.
Since then, I’ve occasionally thought that about other purchases. For example, I just bought a couple of new snow shovels to replace the old ones which were easily 20 years old. Heck, by age 77, I could easily imagine living somewhere that I didn’t have to shovel (or global warming may have taken care of that for me! ;))
So many things - from appliances to a new winter coat - could be the last one of those I ever buy. Hell, even these new Wicked Tough wool socks! And I tend to try to buy things that are quality made - made to last.
Wondering if you ever thought that way and, if so, regarding what purchase and at what age?
