1. Buying a new car, even a cheaper new car, is still a huge thing to put money into. That huge purchase makes all the little things look insignificant. "4€ for a bread, it's nothing, doesn't cost as much a car."

    1. @adiwan Buying a home in the 60s did similar to my grandparents. Usually manifested in the opposite way, though, like "Why the hell is a KIA twice as much as our house?!"

      1. @scribus OK. That's an inflation problem. A new car costs now less than it did back then. A modern car has in addition a computer, entertainment system, navigation, explosives (air bags), automatic driving assistants (break, lane control, distance, parking). Although a house usually keeps its value or increases it over time.

    2. @adiwan Yeah, it's a thing. The other week for me it was, $2100 for a new bed? Why not, that's only 1/26th what we paid for our Tesla. No but seriously, I still feel tremendously guilty and uncomfortable when I go to a restaurant.

      1. @oracle Crom, I paid a grand for my bed and thought that was stiff, then again it is only for one...
