How to spend my BDay $$?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have $200 in cash that is burning a hole in my pocket. My in-laws sent it to me for my BDay, with the instructions that I buy something for myself that is not wise or sensible. They also specifically wrote that I was NOT to put it in my bank account for monthly bills. So now I need to decide where to go shopping!

Should I get Carl a cat tree? He like to get up on the kitchen table b/c it is high, but we have a tiny apt and the only place I could put a cat tree is in the corner of our bedroom. Not the ideal spot, but I think he would like being able to get up higher. On the other hand, he rarely if ever gets on any other furniture other than the table and his dresser (that overlooks a canal and golf course, plenty of entertainment).

Or should I go for something for me. All I do is work and relax, so it would probably either be spent on jeans or work pants. Since we have no seasons, I have plenty of clothes stocked up! I could also get some decent jewelry, maybe a right hand ring (not too expensive one).

What would you guys buy???

I'd probably buy myself a new purse (the one I want is $200 ) or a new camera... or some new jewelry....

Hope you can make up your mind!

John's getting me mine for Christmas! I've been eyeing the new Dooney and Burke one

I also told him that he could just slip the new camera inside the purse too.... or an enagement ring

Which one? I have been going back and forth between a few of them. That's what I get every year on my birthday per an agreement I made with my fiance... no purses throughout the year and on my birthday I get a Dooney & Bourke. I currently have the white one with the stars.. I love the bright colors


I am so sorry to hijack your thread!

No, hijack away!

I am not into purses (since mine is usually stashed in my desk all hours of the day). My basic routine is work, go home, play with Carl, cook dinner, hang out with hubby, watch a little TV, go to bed. Occasionally we go out to eat with friends or have some couples over for dinner, but most is just a variation of the same!

I used to be obsessed with clothes and bags, etc. But now I am just not that excited by them! That is so sad!

I think I may make a trip to the mall this weekend to look for those ellusive perfectly fitting jeans!

I usually don't like D&B, but I have to admit that bag is GORGIOUS!

I would say invest some of it in your future- add at least part of it to your savings account or other account.

Get a cheaper cat tree for like $100, and then go shopping for yourself too!!
How exciting to have extra money!!!

I'd save it until I found something I really wanted!
