Wishful thinking. This past week, I’ve stumbled onto a few things that I am dying to buy, but they are all semi-unnecessary and I just can’t get myself to splurge. They are:
New iPod Touch because my current one won’t support the newest C25K app – $179.00
New running shoes to go along with my new “want to start running” initiative – $75.00
New Pink ‘Osito’ Northface – On sale at Nordstrom.com for $73.90
New Chair Abington Armless Chair – On sale at Target.com for $129
With the rest, I’d buy some cute sundresses that are on sale all over!
What non-essential, non-wedding related stuff would you buy right now if you found $500 (and no paying off debt or saving it! That’s boring and responsible!)

Since it is July and I start my Christmas shopping early- I would take that money and get my shopping done! (Also since I am due December 22nd- it is probably a good idea to get the shopping done sooner rather than later!) I also am so tempted to just do a giftcard Christmas for everyone. It would be much easier!

A hell of a lot of Delica beads, a bunch of cute dresses I’ve been drooling over recently (I only have justification to buy one to wear to a friend’s upcoming wedding), a new sewing machine, and yards and yards of fabric to play with and sew myself something pretty.

Oooh plane tickets home to visit my family for a week!
And I could really use new running sneakers as well.
and extra personal training sessions when my run out with whatever is leftover.

An Ipad, because the FI wants one sooo much. I want to surprise him with one so bad.

lol I was going to write “pay off some debt” until I read the last bit 🙂
okay…there’s quite a few things but these are the most recent wants
1. my wedding album
it’s well over $500 but if I had the extra $500, I’d buy it.
3. An Ipad 2.
Of course, I’d have to choose between those thing if I did have $500 appear out of nowhere.
ETA: oh dang, I broke the rules with the wedding album.

Oh I like the plane ticket idea, can I have a week off from work too? 🙂
As far as things, I think I would buy a netbook and a Lily Pulitzer dress because i really want both right now.

Get my car detailed (I live in the city and have tons of dings, paint chips) and get laser hair removal (underarms and bikini area, :-D). I know they’re weird options, they are just two things I really want and just won’t pay for myself.

Option 1…Honestly, I’d probably treat myself to a total girl day. Hair, massage, nails,etc. The works… Lol.
Or option 2, buy some cute new scrubs. That part may sound responsible, but cute scrubs make me happy. I’d get a new tv, too.
Here’s a Samsung TV 32″ (since we already have our “manly” 60″ one, lol) on sale for 327.99

Plane tickets!! My oldest friend is having her baby shower in a month in NoCal and I can’t go. 🙁

haha, oh man. there are so many responsible things I could do with $500.00!!! My house needs so much work!
But, for my pure entertainment? I would buy:
MAC Make-up Brush Set: $50.00
Then I’d probably blow the rest on cute clothes that will finally get me some sort of “style” which I greatly lack at the moment.

I’d either invest it or put it in a high-yield savings account for our down payment or furniture/room redos of a new condo/house. I really want a nice place to live way more than I want “stuff” these days!

@mightywombat: oh and my friend is having her wedding shower in a few weeks in NY. And I am in Norcal. Too bad we can’t switch spots! It would be way easier 🙂
