    Though my parents have already given me some of my birthday presents, they are going to spend an extra $40 (not just give me cash), and I'm trying to decide what I could ask for, and what better place to get ideas than the good old WWW.

    What would you get if you had $40?

    What would I do if I had 40USD....god I don't have any idea, I can only dream of such a time ;)


    I'd save it...for 40USD, your not getting much. Maybe a video game...but not even a Wii/xbox 360/PS3 game...PSP or DS maybe.

    A donation to a favourite charity (Stephen Lewis Foundation/Amnesty International/Greenpeace/WWF are some of mine) in your name.

    I'd buy some art supplies :) I could really go for a nice new set of prismacolor markers :)

    For $40? Wouldn't that only get you 15 or so markers? :p


    If I had spare $40 to drop, I think I'd get me some Mario Badescu products or go to Sephora. :D Guessing the OP might not be so interested in those, though.

    Hmm. I might get my nails done, actually. :eek:

    Either stick it in a savings account or blow the lot on booze.

    A Logitech VX Revolution if you don't have a nice mouse. After the mail in rebate it's $40, which is a fantastic price. I have one and I highly recommend it.

    Well, you really can't go wrong with clothes.

    If you bring 30 extra cents, you could get 31 bottles of Vitamin Water. :)

    Put in an ING or Etrade savings account. In another year you will have an extra $2 or so :D

    But really, it depends on what you are interested in...
    Things i would put $40 towards
    -360/wii games
    -Powermac G4
    -some gadget i never needed, but suddenly find really cool

    $40 isn't a whole lot. if someone were giving me a $40 gift, i'd probably want an itunes gift card or a nintendo ds game.
