So what was it? Your neighbor moved and gave you his AGA 4-oven? A marked-down orphan at Tuesday Morning? A treasure at a brocante or yard sale? The local kitchen store going OOB? The All-Clad rescued from the dumpster?
Whatever it was, what was the lasting effect? Do you value it *more* or *less* by virtue of it being a value? Does it make you *more* inclined to be patient and hunt/scrounge for more bargains, or does it make it easier to spend your "savings" on an unbargain?
