I know some people really, really want expensive, fancy engagement rings; I just don't happen to be one of them. Matt and I have so many other things to spend our money on:
- Our down payment and monthly mortgage bill
- A backyard garden and chicken coop, so we can live in more eco-friendly and sustainable ways (and have fun!)
- Our yearly trip abroad so we continue to experience the amazingness of other cultures and places
- Matt's next car, so we can pay in cash and avoid wasting money on interest payments (he wants a Honda Insight)
- The list could go on and on...
