Take a look around your house and tell us what you find that is totally worth the money.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is absolutely worth the money?

  • This is going to sound bad but not spending the money and spending time with my dad. He has ALS and is in year 4 of the disease. People rarely make it to year 5. So saving pennies and spending time with him at home is worth more than gold to me. This is time I don’t get back. Hug your loved ones. Take a minute to tell your dad you love them or your mom you love them. Have dinner with your family because honestly we don’t know what time we have with them and it’s priceless to me.
  • My gym membership. It's expensive, but after trying other gyms and exercise methods, I finally found a place where I'm comfortable and thriving. Becoming athletic again has reduced a bunch of my anxiety, plus I'm physically much stronger (always a plus). The cost of the gym membership is worth it to me because exercise is important--and if you enjoy your gym/exercise, you're more likely to continue. AND we are still working out during this shut-down, just virtually. The coaches are doing an amazing job keeping us engaged and motivated. I am so grateful for them and the gym organization itself. Shout out to Fit Body Boot Camp.
  • Cascade platinum dishwasher pods! I almost bought a new dishwasher because I thought mine was worthless. Tried the pods instead of the off-brand detergent and saved myself the cost and installation of a new dishwasher!
  • LASIK surgery! My eyes had felt like sand in them all the time, I could no longer wear contacts & with no insurance we compared & 2 eye visits & glasses would only be a few $100 cheaper than surgery- which would be permanent! 6 years ago & have better than 20/20.
  • Good shoes. 45 years on retail floors. In my teens and early 20's spent more on jeans than shoes. So stupid!
