Now, I need to know, are we talking about what I bought for myself? Or what DH bought for "us".
He got a car that "only needs a little work" for $200. He got a tractor mower that "only needs a little work" for $400. Now, these are for "us".
Granted, he did try to use the tractor ealier this week and said it didn't work too well so he had to go get the deck aligned. (honestly, if that is all that is wrong with it, it was a steal!). But then he walked up the road 100 yds and borrowed his mom's tractor to finish the yard.
The car was supposed to be bought for part for my car, they are the same make and model. Well, he tried to fix it (we got it for $200 because the repair guy said the motor blew up). Now, he wants to spend $600 to find out what is wrong. All I need replaced in my car are the tires, the air con unit reset (computer thing), and to have working automatic windows! The tires and the window things work on this car!! And, he wants to worry about the motor.
Anyway (sorry....vented a little bit there), the most expensive thing I bought this year was probably a new comforter set for our bed. On sale for $49.99. But, I did splurge on summer shirts last weekend since JC Penny was having a sale and bought 5 shirts for around $59 (buy one, get one $0.88) and I still felt guilty about that.
