“How do you want to pay for it?”
I had recently returned from Iraq and my wife and I were hunting for a couch for our new home.
We found one that was on sale we both thought it was perfect.
Okay, it was a red couch and she thought it was perfect. I, personally, didn’t understand why anyone would buy a red couch but apparently I didn’t understand home decor. Nonetheless, the wife’s vote trumped mine.
When the sales clerk asked how we wanted to pay suggesting we take advantage of their great in-store financing, an exciting thought ran through me – “we can pay cash”.
A year prior, that wouldn’t have been an option. Not even close!
But now we found ourselves in a very exciting position; we were financially stable.
I can’t say that I 100% believed we were financially stable at that point in our lives, but it definitely was a turning point for us. Not only could we pay cash, but we also had money left over.
