“Once bought about 30 boxes of tampons. They were on sale! They were not a lifetime supply, but they lasted a while.

I’ve been using up my hoard of dish washing detergent for about three years now. I guess I’ll have to buy some more in 2024 or 35.”

“My solar is expected to function for 20+ years, which should be more than the time I own the home. So, I effectively bought the electricity for all the years I will own my home in a single purchase. The initial cost paid off in ~4 years, so now it’s free electricity every year.”

“My REI membership is lifetime, it was $30. $35 Dollars? They had a promo that gave me a $35 or $30 gift card, the same amount the membership cost.

I love camping and hiking, and being a member gives me access to buy their used stuff at their garage sales.”

“Boots! I found a pair of Salomon hiking boots I absolutely adore some six years ago. I splurged and bought five more pairs in my current size and five more a half size up.

My thinking was that my foot size might fluctuate depending on outside factors, and I could always double up on socks and use those as winter boots. It was expensive, but I’m really, really picky about footwear.

For context, I hike some fairly challenging terrain every other weekend, and I walk some 4-6 miles a day, so it’s really important to me that I have a comfortable pair of shoes. I burn through Reeboks and Sketchers and the like every two months without even really trying.

Anyway! I’m on the second pair of my “every day” boots, and I’m still on “winter boots” pair number one.”
