I love reading about what everyone is into...very interesting. And understandable how money could be separated from us with all these interests. LOL. Eating out is something I forgot to mention. I love eating out at nice restaurants. But do try to be reasonable because that can get expensive. My daughter and I, when we do get together, often times like to go karaokeing and that means drinking a little bit plus usually eating dinner. So, it can add up if it's too often. Now she has a beau and she's dropped off the face of the planet... so I'm saving some money there. LOL.

But it is fun to try new places if they're good. Or sitting at some kind of place with atmosphere, like along the beach or near a marina or pleasant.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

I tend to spend my money depending on the season. In the summer/spring it is yard stuff and we do go away a lot Kayaking. In the fall it is usually spent getting the kids stuff for college. In the winter it is house hold stuff and usually a 7-10 day vacation somewhere tropical.
This year it seems like the cost of everything is so high that we really didn't get to go away as much as usual.

My dogs first and foremost. I like to look at pretty collars, but sadly can't afford as many as I'd like. I will be getting Logan's tag collar (just under $30) later this year, and eventually will be getting him a regular collar (EL Traveler!) Gavroche's collar was mostly paid for by a gift certificate from my birthday. I spend way more money on shows/trials than I ought to, and yet I still wish I could spend more. I had three weekends I had to cancel this past spring because I didn't have money, and then there's one in Topeka this weekend and I don't have a car, so can't go there. I'm beyond thrilled there is a UKC club in town now. Less travel means more money for entries and less for hotels/gas!

And Doctor Who stuffs. I'm collecting the novelisations of the classics, but fortunately most of them are under $5 each - a couple I've found for $1 each. I don't care what condition they're in so long as I can read them, but the $1 ones were actually in pretty good condition, and most of the $5 ones have never been read. I have two sonic screwdrivers, so I'm set there for now until I get really into the classics and want all the classic sonics lol. Shirts I make myself for $3-$4 a piece

I used to be able to say (without pause) the kids got most of my money and the dogs got the rest, but I've turned into quite a gadget wh0re lately! I blame Kevin

Besides my desktop HP (which I still adore and use most of the time) I have a 5 inch archos tablet, a 16gb nook tablet, and a regular nook e-reader. I am now waiting for Novemeber and the release of the Wii U LOL We won't even talk about the kitchen gadgets that are piling up! hahaha

We still spend a crap-ton of money on the house, yard, family entertainment, etc It's just that my focus has shifted to a more selfish place..........probably because the kids are getting older (some grown) and I'm reverting back to thinking of MY wants again.

They only stock a few at our local stores and I am guessing disney ones would not sell well but I just don't like what they have.

We have stopped eating out so much and just stopping going to target for one thing saves soooooooo much. Wed walk in for laundry detergent and spend 100$. I have gotten so much better.

I also stopped doing thee lets buy a car to play with thing. Chaz hasn't been able to do it with boats though. But he always sells what he bought for more to buy the next one at least. I miss having a stick though but I am telling myself NO.

I hardly ever spend my money. If I do, its for candy bars, or some sort of food stuff that my mom wouldn't buy, and I've stopped doing that because I'm eating better lately. Or if I spend money it will be on other people.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Video games

I'm kinda fascinated with how many people like coach. I always thought their weird distorted horse shoe looking Cs were kinda ugly. I never knew they were so popular o.o

This just popped up in my mail, lol! Why, I don't know since I really, really, really don't care for Coach, have never purchased anything Coach and have regifted a couple of things to homes where they wouldn't wind up on the floor of the back of the closet

Art supplies. I spend AT LEAST $20 a week on new canvas, water colors, and paint brushes.

And then there is the dog stuff........

Fashion, fashion, and more fashion. Cars would be up there as well if I had that kind of cash.

I like pretty things - candles, object d'art, furniture, technology, many here might already be able to guess - anyone that knows me even just abit knows I have notoriously expensive tastes. I have paid over 6 figures over the years for my wardrobe, accessories, and everything else. I provide well for Katalin but she's not overly spoiled - she doesn't get a gross amount of collars or accessories etc - she doesn't wear clothes at all, she isn't a "fou fou" dog and I don't plan on her being so lol.

Save me...

Just love those...
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.
