    You need a new laptop so you decide to really cut down on all extraneous spending. You're already frugal and you already own more than you need so this shouldn't be a problem.

    Later the exact same day you walk into a used bookstore and come out with an armload of books.

    But... Now that I have a kid and he's learning to read... there's nothing wrong with building a library of reference books and novels that might interest him...

    If learning by osmosis were a thing I'd be sleeping on a kindle every night. Scratch that--a bed of SSD's filled to the brim with PDF books on math, science, history and dictionaries.
