Things I'll spend a lot of money on....

Dog/pet stuff. Treats, chews, toys, good food, collars, leashes, class fees, grooming, etc.

Food (especially eating out). I really hate cooking, and I'm absolutely terrible at it, so eating well typically means eating out. I also have a tendancy to buy expensive "snacks" - I just spent $7 on a (small) container of the awesomest cheese spread to put on crackers.

Books - but I try to do most of my book shopping at garage sales and thrift stores and such, so it cuts down on the cost.

Things I won't spend a lot of money on...

Clothes. Especially jeans - I can wear out a pair of jeans so fast at work that I really can't justify spending a lot of money on them. I get the majority of my "work jeans" from thrift stores.

Household-y type things. I just don't really see a need.

The only handbags/purses I buy are seatbelt bags from Harvey's. I love the colors and they are pretty unique and durable.

Lately, it's been eating out. I don't even WANT to spend much money on food, but I do so out of convenience.

Normally, I splurge on things like computers, games, makeup and dog stuff.

I've had the same $30 purse for years. I don't currently own any expensive clothes. One day I'll have a small wardrobe of dress clothes but right now I'm in the middle of going from disgustingly fat to slightly less revolting, and I don't want to buy any more fat clothes than I absolutely have to.

This is cute to. I worry about getting one on ebay and it not being real but this isn't a brand Im huge on I just like disney!

Do they only sell these at disney?

I saw a purse at fin feather fur that was all bedazzled with a cross on it and its pink but camo on it and its so gaudy its awful but I love it but it was 75$ and I just couldn't do it for a tacky purse!

Competing with horses. I will throw money at competing, lessons and open days at cross country courses without hesitation. This week I am taking one horse cross country on Thursday, show jumping another Thursday night and then taking 2 cross country on Sunday although there's a competition I might be doing instead. I may also have a lesson on Saturday. I would totally do the same for dog training but for some reason people are more likely to haul me and a horse(s) around than me and a dog

I've recently discovered Ebooks as well and thank goodness for amazon gift cards! I gift myself a certain amount of money when I have the extra cash and then that's it until I next get the some more extra cash. It means I'm not just spending constantly and it's made me even pickier!

Junk food is a major thing for me. I buy too much at once , eat it all and then do the same thing the next time I'm the store!

That's really it though for me and I'm still to save a good bit of money so I suppose it's not all bad.

Mine's eked out in small increments as I scrape it together, lol.

Metalwork supplies, gemstones to work with (especially moonstones, although I've got a stash of herks, a few opals and a gorgeous big Yowah opal I want to do something special with), books, Darling Clandestine scents and Mon Ennui pigments.

I could do lingerie in a big way if I were afflicted with any real disposable income.

Movies, my house is awash with DVDs. I've not moved onto blu-ray yet but once the price is down I will!

Vacations. The past few years, we've spent close to $10k/year on airfare and cruises and various trips. Part if it's inevitable--my family is all in California, so it's around $1000 each time we head out to visit them.

Otherwise, it's dresses. It's a mixed blessing that the mall between work and home is being torn down right now, because I used to stop every other week or so and pick up a new outfit. Now it's a pain to get to my favorite stores, and I refuse to pay for shipping online, so I really haven't bought clothes for several months.

Then, like all of us, I'm a sucker for dog stuff. I drop $100/month on agility classes, and all summer I've been renting out various facilities for drop in practice. I can't drive past a pet store without poking my head in for treats, either.

Dog stuff, books and dog figurines/statues... I try not to spend too much since house/barn/property projects take priority. Just finished rebuilding the double gates for the driveway turnaround and we're going to add a ramp to the porch (we're on a hill and it's six steps up) so Murph will have an easier time; he's getting older and a little stiff in one hind leg. Does that qualify as dog stuff, too?
