    with money you have or don't actually have? ;)

    I have no money... but I do have credit :p ahhhhh... I'm too responsible to go on a serious spending spree, but in the past month I bought a treadmill, new washer/dryer an awning for our deck and a new BBQ. I need to let my card cool off before I get a new MBP ;)

    About a year ago I went on a DVD buying spree the worse hit to my checking account came when I spent $230 at Best Buy in one trip. I think when all was said and done I probably spent about $600-800 over the course of a month. Money that I could have been put to better use...but where would I be without my copies of Monty Python's Hoy Grail and Back to the Future Trilogy? :p

    :eek: Mm hmm...

    Hee... back when I worked and had some money saved up and ready to go... I visited an Agent Provocateur (the nearest one at that time was in LA)... Before I knew it, I'd dropped almost $1,500. Hee. :eek:

    I did when I first got my credit card. Now I'm on a spending spree to pay off all my debt. :eek:

    I totally splurged and bought a 12 dollar swimsuit the other day! Eek!

    No, seriously, I'm as stingy as they come. That swimsuit was the first thing I bought in a while that wasn't food or... um food. I've been wearing the same clothes for years (I do wash them though :)). I also have a 6 dollar limit per meal, and I try to keep it under 6 dollars a day when it comes to food by eating at home as much as possible.

    I usually do it once or twice a year. It just makes you feel good. However I got much wiser doing it though. I try to save the money first and then do it. Otherwise the CC company come and bite you in the A**!!

    My last car purchase could be considered a spree. Infiniti FX45 - way beyond any reasonable need for transportation.

    But it's wicked fun to drive. :D

    Aside from that, I'm not much into conspicuous consumption these days.

    I'm very terrible when it comes to shopping. I have no impulse control. Sometimes I wonder how is feels to be thrifty.

    There was a time in my life where I was spending $5,000 a month on my Lego addiction. I've toned down a bit since then, but I did spend $1,000 on GI Joes yesterday.

    My iMac and MacBook money probably could have been saved for a better use. No, not really. That's the best money I've ever spent!

    Nope... just me and my Mastercard :D

    Hehe, actually, no I *do* spend a lot but I always pay it off in full. I don't believe in debts - apart from my mortgage.

    But that's the key to happiness. From Twin Peaks:-

    So once a day, every day, treat yourself. Just remember that it doesn't have to be expensive, or even anything that costs money, but make sure you reward yourself for just being you :)

    Dropped over $3000CAD on my sweet PowerBook. And one time, I got a student bursary for $500 and spent it on clothes.

    Work hard, play hard I say.
