While Nate and I were creating the beer calculator and saving tips, Nate got it into his mind that what he really wanted was a set of frosty beer mugs (“beer just tastes better when it comes from a frosty beer mug rather than a cold bottle”), so we went on a quest to get him a set. We found a set at a Linens & Things store for $9.95 and now he has a set of 4 beer mugs.
I’m not sure what these type of purchases are considered. They aren’t really impulse although there is usually something the motivates you to make it when you haven’t been motivated in the past. Nate had been considering purchasing the beer mugs for a long time, but it wasn’t until we were creating the beer information that it became something that had to be purchased.
All I can say is that it was a good purchase – those frosty beers last night really went down well.
