Both Terry and I are big fans of U2.  We saw them in concert twice before and can stop listening to their new album.  When the Vancouver concert coming up in May, we told ourselves, let’s go!

The tickets went on sale this morning at 10am and I was right on the dot to purchase the tickets.  I looked for best tickets and almost fell off my chair.  $300 a ticket!

Wo Bono, that is a lot of money!  As a financial planner it is hard to justify $600 for a couple’s night out, even to see U2.  So, I looked for the next best option and found tickets for $113 each. Now that is more reasonable.  So, I asked myself, can we afford $600?  Yes we can but will we have 3 times the fun as with the $226 tickets? Of course not.  So, I bought the well located balcony tickets and can’t wait to go see them!

The moral of the story is, you can spend a lot of money on entertainment and can easily justify the expense but do you really want to spend that kind of money for that event?  It is a personal decision.  Just ask yourself the question before hitting the buy button!
