Let's say you have an EXTRA $200 bucks in your wallet/purse, that you could spend on just you ~


As for me, today I think I would buy a ~

KASEY CHAMBERS CD~ Just love a song I heard Friday

A NEW BAG FOR SOME WORK TOOLS ~ tired of tools dropping out!

A COUPLE OF NEW SHIRTS not Hawaiian ~ have enough of those

I'D "DO BRUNCH" and CHEAT! But work my butt off on the :woops:

Remember when you could do these things for $100 ;)

$200? The cheapest return flight to ANYWHERE, please. A change of scene would do me the world of good... even if I just got off one plane and had to wait in the airport for the one back again... seriously. :yes:

I'd buy a tea kettle! I want one.

I'd also get a really luxurious set of bed sheets!

I'd save it, and apply it to bettering our current living situation.

Spa day

08-12-2007, 11:26 AM
I'd put half away for my trip to Philly...
But oh man, the other half? Definitely some spa treatment, let me tell you. Waxing, hair, makeup, nails...I'd do it all.

I would book a hotel room and plan to go see Hal Ketchum sing at the Pecan Festival in Hickman, Kentucky on September 19th. It is a pretty long drive, so most of the balance would go for gasoline and travel expenses. Hal soothes my soul. = )

red patten ballet flats, more contact lenses, a couple of funky watches

Bikini Ready

I would buy new jeans (the ones I want are $150) and a new swim suit (the one I want is $50). I would have just enough money for both! I think I could afford the tax if it went over a little even hehe. My birthday is in a week and both are on my wish list so maybe I'll get them after all yay!

-A day at the salon with a GOOD haircut. Not one of those days I go in with a picture of what I want, and I come out looking like an angry beaver chewed off my hair in chunks.


-Manicure/ Pedicure

Ahhhh..I miss being pampered.

Put it towards my new skinny clothes

I would give it to my MIL, cause she is having a hard time with money this month. (Her yearly house insurance and car insurance both came due at the same time). She is always willing to help us if need arises and we do the same for her.

Right now I'd probably apply it to all these moving expenses we'll be accruing in a couple of weeks (moving out-of-state.)

But if you insist that I spend it on me... :D

I'd either go buy an outfit at Anthropology or I'd use it to "help" buy this gorgeous coat I saw at Macy's. It's a bit over $200, but I could swing the rest.

:yes: YEP! That's the :drill: LAW :drill: of this thread!

Probably some technology. I can't think of anything specific, but I know if I go into a store I'll find something that I absolutely can't live without. Maybe a KVM switch.

200 is 33 hours of babysitting. Oh WHAT I could do with 33 hours all to myself. OK, lets just do 25 hours of baby sitting and $50 for pocket money (latte, movie, book, etc.)

08-12-2007, 03:37 PM
With $200... I'd buy myself a beautiful corset. ♥

08-12-2007, 03:55 PM
DVDs! Tons of em (used or on sale).
And Teavana stuff. A teapot and some delicious loose leaf teas.

08-12-2007, 04:09 PM
Birkenstocks & Dr. Martens...I think I could swing a pair of both for that. Hmmm...:)

08-12-2007, 04:21 PM
Wowsers....I think I would go with a good cut and color from a NICER salon than what I go to....I will be doing it soon anyway because the last gal really hacked up my hair!

08-13-2007, 12:05 AM
I would put it towards a coach purse I've been eyeing!

08-13-2007, 12:31 AM
Oh, well if I have to spend it on Me, I would go shopping for some new fall clothes.

08-13-2007, 01:11 AM
Hmm good thread.. Right now I'd put it towards some new clothes and shoes. I desperately need better clothes instead of just wearing t-shirts and jeans all the time due to me needing to look a bit more grown up now. I am also starting to meet new people and go to nice places and I always feel like I've dressed too casual and I really struggle to put together fancy enough outfits with my limited wardrobe.

08-13-2007, 05:15 PM
Yeah I have to agree to the "Fall Clothes" comments. I need to get some soon.

But if the idea is to be COMPLETELY selfish and not worry about necessities then I would get a trim and color. Buy a new book, some bubble bath, and a nice smelling candle. Pay a babysitter to watch my kids and just plain ol' relax!

I need time more than the money! If I could buy an extra hour or two per day without robbing my sleep I would be good.

08-13-2007, 05:20 PM
If I had $200 to spend today I would head to the bookstore and load up on some books and CDs. Then I would have a mexican dinner with DH. :love:

I need a new purse. The lining in my current one is ripped and my keys keep falling into the abyss and then I have to root around forever to find them! Thank goodness I don't need keys to start my car!

Zenor~you're moving? No more winery?

Clothes and shoes!!! You can never have enough pairs of shoes!!
