I loved their stuff and loved their stores, but rarely ever bought a thing. I obviously wasn’t the only one as Papyrus just announced they were closing shop and sadly, filing for bankruptcy.
No one offered more beautiful greeting cards, but my gosh were they expensive. Every so often I’d find myself in there trying to justify the cost and make a purchase- but 9 times out of 10 I just couldn’t.
I am the owner of a small bottle of $50 face cream..and guess what, I love this stuff so much, I just ordered another bottle.
Just goes to show you that “value” is a personal measure. I may think something is worth the cost and you may not. It could be that you’d never pay $50 for face cream, but maybe you’d happily drop $50 for a steak..or a bottle of wine..or perfume.
(Full transparency, I have that pricey perfume too. 🙄)
Our lives are (in large part) shaped by how we spend our two most important resources: time and money. For us to make personally worthwhile investments with either, we must be convinced we see value.
Having just completed our budget for 2020 by combing through expenditures from 2019..I can see how my perception of value fluctuates and (hopefully) matures.
Let’s just say I will definitely be “closing shop” in some areas this year and redirecting precious resources into (what I perceive to be) more valuable, worthwhile “investments.”
And yes, as for right now..that still includes the cream! 😛
