So proud of my hubby!

September 6th, 2012 at 01:55 am

My husband is a cyclist. It's a rather expensive hobby--who knew that bike stuff could cost so much?

Anyway....he needs something new for his bike because it's not working up to snuff. Don't ask me what it's called...I don't speak the cycling language. It costs $70.

In our old lifestyle, hubby would have just gone to the bike shop immediately and purchased the part.

In the past year, he probably would have mentioned he needs it and asked if we could squeeze it into this month's budget instead of just immediately buying it.

But yesterday, wow, did he ever surprise me. He told me that he decided to sell some stuff on Ebay in order to come up with the money.

Wow, really???

Yes, he already sold 3 things and made about $38. He's looking for more stuff to sell. And this was totally his idea.

Now that's progress!

    My sister's husband is an avid cyclist...so I get exactly what you mean about your husband. My brother in law does use his race winnings to buy more stuff, or at least cover most of his race costs. Luckily he does often win!

    Congrats to your husband for making his hobby work within the contraints of your budget!!

    I wish there was a "like" button for these comments, LOL! Your BIL must be a professional cyclist, cool! My husband starting riding a few years ago for health reasons and he's lost a bunch of weight by doing it. So I can't really complain that it costs so much.

    That's true, he's probably actually saving money in the long run by keeping his weight down and exercising his heart and muscles. Good for him!

    The proof is in the pudding, isn't it? Time and effort leads to change, and now you have the insurance that he has obviously made the change from within. That is fantastic! Congrats to both of you...
