I must be getting old before my time (33 and a half). But I feel the need to buy things now that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I guess I just want to buy stuff once and be done with it.
My dad started me off with the habit of buying Bosch power tools. Even in my student days I still spent the extra on a Bosch orbital sander and jigsaw to make my own skimboards. He also has an old briefcase that my brother and I have coveted since we were kids (not that I have ever needed a briefcase).
Recently I have just spent a small fortune on pots and pans, knives, teak patio furniture and a Weber BBQ. Oh, and a bunch of Park tools. It has turned into an addiction.
But please feed my addiction. What stuff do you covet the most that will likely outlast you?
