Bucking Trends

We do that a lot around here I guess. First we bought a house when everyone said we should wait (if we had waited, we would never have closed on a mortgage courtesy of everyone and their aunt foreclosing...)

And now we bought a dishwasher (custom order since it's white... and the date stamped on the back is actually 3 days after we paid for it) when durable goods orders are "inexplicably" down.

Oh well. It's nice to contribute to the economy!

We have always done everything exactly wrong... yet here we are and it seems to have worked out. I conclude that the best thing to do is - do what works for you. *grin*

Most of us 'real-lifers' can't wait for the 'best marketing move'. Have to do it when we need to. Can't always afford to wait.
