materialism

In the past week, I've purchased the miniatures to make the Brothers Hematic, a power cord for my clamshell Powerbook G3, and ordered these sneakers:

Ivory African Jogger



Granted, I got a 10% off coupon for the shoes, and I actually do need a new pair of gym shoes. These are actually cheaper than many. But still, I feel guilty, even though I need them, can afford them, and they support African small business. Plus I'm adhering to my "one in, one out" rule. In fact, two pairs of shoes will be going out in exchange for this one. Why, then, do I feel guilty?

Because they're pretty.
Because your shoes aren't yet falling off your feet.
Because of some other buried lesson that has surfaced prior to you purchasing these shoes.

My gym shoes aren't falling off my feet, but gym shoes need to be discarded long before that happens. These shoes won't arrive till April (they are on pre-order) so I will definitely be due.
