After all of the pain that the recession has caused, it seems that there is a silver lining.  We have reset our brains to appreciate form, function, and meaning over cost.
For instance, the Casio watch above was featured in GQ this month in an article they did about the 1980s digital watch coming back in style.  They said this watch only costs $25, but you can actually get it for around $17 on Amazon. No, I did not forget a zero.
Also, many couples are opting for smaller, intimate weddings instead of the mega-events that cost as much as a new Mercedes.
At some point, we began to put too much emphasis on price as an indicator of value.  However, it seems the recession helped snap us out of that mindset.
