You Know Your an Old Married Couple When...

You get excited about this type of purchase.

Erin and I have been looking at my credit card reward points and realize I've accumulated many over the past five years or so. Wedding expenses and an engagement ring rack up the points quickly!

We've decided it's time to step up our game in the cleaning department. That's why we've decided to get a Dyson Ball Vac - the Mercedes Benz of vacuums. It's a major purchase that thankfully we've already essentially paid for through other things. Before you know it, Erin and I will be smoothly steering this baby through our condo, sucking up dirt from three floors down.

This decision got me thinking. What are some other purchases that newly married couple get excited about?

  • A blender
  • Welcome mat outside your door
  • New bedding
  • Obviously, according to this post, a vacuum.
  • Waffle iron (that might just be me...)
  • Fancy boxes and tubs for organizing
Have some things to add to the list? Let us know with a comment below. Happy Wednesday! We're halfway home.


  1. A Crock-Pot! Ryan gave me one for our first anniversary.

    1. Ah yes, the Crock-Pot. I had one going into marriage, but it is a lifesaver. I just throw whatever is left in the fridge inside and BAM! Dinner is served.

  2. I have a Dyson, and I have to say it is AMAZING! Especially good with two dogs. While it seemed crazy at the time to spend around $500 on a vacuum... it was definitely a good purchase. Enjoy those vacuuming parties you are sure to have! (Well, maybe a party after the vacuuming is done.)
