Got tepid as well as wasted money while trying to save money

My mom talked me into going to a flea market with her on one of the hottest afternoons of the year as well as most of the booths did not have a/c.

My buddy and I spent hours walking around looking at other peoples’ junk with a heat index over 120.

Every once in a while I would hear the hum of a window cooling system as well as I would make a B-line for that booth. I would feign interest in whatever they were selling for as long as I could fake it or until Mom started wondering towards another booth. By the end of the day, I noticed that even Mom was gravitating towards the air conditioned booths. Both of us easily made more purchases from air cooled venders than my pal and I did from non cooled ones, even if my pal and I did buy a lot of stuff my pal and I didn’t need. I noticed that most of my purchases were things to make me cooler; either now or in the future. I bought a lot of frozen drinks, fans, as well as modern filters for my cooling system at home. When my pal and I finally got home, both Mom as well as I crashed in front of the cooling system vent with a frigid iced Starbucks Latte as well as cooled off, however unfortunately, my mom didn’t find what she was looking for despite all the hours in the sun. I told her that next weekend, my pal and I would go to real brick-and-mortar shops to find it. I suppose my pal and I spent all the money she thought she would save buying junk my pal and I didn’t need at the flea market. At least brick-and-mortar locales will be air conditioned, cool, as well as comfortable.
