An idea or feeling that completely occupies the mind. That would be the definition of an obsession. We all have them, no denying it. Whether it’s yo-yo’s, legos, candles, shoes (Becca), glasses, or in my case…cookbooks! Who would have ever guessed that a culinary student would have a love for cookbooks? My dad thinks I am on my way to starting my own libray soon and frankly, I am quite okay with it.
So since I really would like ALOT of cookbooks I have decided that I need to start limiting myself. And by limiting I don’t mean not buying them. That would just be nonsense. Limiting to me would be the amount I purchase per month or how I am purchasing them.
I have been a huge fan of Amazon.com for a while now. Always finding great deals on there. Never hit me that duh, why am I not buying used cookbooks? The prices are literally almost nothing compared to the full price. Let me explain. I recently bought three, yes three, used cookbooks for a total of $13.00. I was a little sceptacle at first as to exactly what I would be getting. But let me tell you, they look brand new. And sadly the shipping is most of the $13. The books themselves cost pennies. No joke.
So lesson learned here, there are so many deals out there. Yes, I know we all want the latest this and the latest that. But if you wait just a bit you can always find the item for a cheaper price. Always check out Amazon, especially for books, for a cheaper price. Even the new books are cheaper than the listed price. You’d be suprised what you can find.
Here’s to not giving up on your obsession.
