Spending Downgrade. And then downgraded again :)))

January 23rd, 2015 at 12:40 am

My sunglasses broke 1 month into being really poor and because they are a non-essential item they had to wait 2 months until we were semi on our feet.

I missed them so decided this month I would buy a pair.

Two sunglasses ago I had Orotons which lasted 4-5 years. The next much cheaper pair lasted just 2 months.

I could either save for Orotons ($165 cheapest price) & get them later but really wanted them this month. Money available this month is $100 max.

So found brands in the $100 range & decided to buy.

Went to the shop and before I spoke to anyone decided to just try on sunglasses & see what I like. Focused on looks and also UV protection, sunglare & polarisation. And found a nice pair with good ratings for $50!

So I downgraded and then downgraded again and am perfectly happy with what I bought! So happy to finally have sunglasses again.

    Good call at a decent price - can't live without my sunnies! BTW, if you have extras, might be worth checking out re sunnies. Was in specsavers in Dec and found out I can replace one of my "two pairs free" with sunnies as part of my benefits.
