joannqn Posted January 5, 2012 Share Posted January 5, 2012 (edited) My dad gave me $100 cash for Christmas. I've spent most of that on day-to-day expenses but can now afford to repay myself. Problem is, I don't know what to buy. My thoughts are: a new jacket...I've hated my old one since the day I bought it. The hood was 4 sizes too big, the zipper has broken, and I've now lost the shell so I don't have a coat. new clothing...I'm down to one pair of pants that are acceptable for public wear. If I bought new jeans, I'd probably buy the same mom jeans I own because I can't find anything that fits well, is comfortable, and looks good. I'll settle for comfort. Most of my t-shirts are stained or have those tiny holes in the belly. I still manage to look acceptable in public despite these limitations so it isn't urgent that I buy new clothing. a hair cut...I'm overdue. I hated my last cut so I've been letting it grow out. I'm thinking about a stacked bob but I don't know if that will look good on my face. more dishes...With 6 people in the family, I sometimes want more than 8 settings. We're running low on silverware too (where does it go?) But part of me doesn't want to buy practical stuff all the time. I've given some thought to the $79 or $99 Kindle. Everyone seems to love them. I saw a Nook for the first time the other day and like the eink feature. But I never buy books. Well, I do usually buy the kids a book for the stocking on Christmas. If the library doesn't have it, I just don't read it. I tried to find books for DS's tablet at the library but couldn't make heads or tails of the system. It seemed like either they had nothing interesting or it was checked out. What do you think? Edited January 5, 2012 by joannqn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
