It's so hard to choose what I want to buy when I'm paying cash for it.

Last week we received an extra tax credits payment. I researched whether we had enough to go to York in September, and we don't. We then decided to replace our vacuum cleaner. Let's get a Dyson. Done some searching to find that they start at 199 Gbp - no thank you. We agreed that we definetly want an upright bag less vacuum cleaner.

So I searched, and kept the tab open. I'm choosing which one we're getting and I can't decide. All of this for a vacuum cleaner. It's not life or death.

In the interest of full disclosure we also got a couple of takeaways. I can throw money away on that but not on a household item.

I must be crazy. It shouldn't take this long to purchase an item.

    For now I would go with the cheapest one that will do the job and gets good ratings. Use it until it no longer does the job.

    Creditcardfree has a good idea there

    I agree with CCF and VS. Right now your focus needs to be on wiping out the debt. Buying the least expensive workable option is a good bet. (Or also see if you have a used vacuum type store that sells refurbished ones - still get a very inexpensive one though.)

    Yep! we all agree with ccf. Anything extra goes to the catalogue. We'll cheer for you!
