    I love to spend on clothes, cause I loved to dress up sometimes. Other than that, I spend on (*surprisingly*) CDs, magazines, food, bags... etc.

    Sounds good. I usually get books from secondhand bookstores too but I have this preference for certain novels to be brand new. brat


    I buy toys, hair accessories, stationaries, stickers, books for the little sister.

    books-paperback or clearance hardcover. I'm cheap on it, but I buy a TON so it doesn't work out that way. I try to do the library thing, but I like to re-read stuff, so it seems more convenient at least to buy. Gotta get in the habit of libraries.... and yard sales for the summer again.

    magazines- it is very rare I can leave a store that sells magazines without buying at least one.

    Scrapbook supplies. I own WAY more than I scrap. Nuff said.

    I'm trying really hard to fight the urge to splurge on purses or purse making supplies. Right before I started my new job at the craft store I splurged on one of those screen printed purses... ADORABLE naked baby butt purse that cost me way too much but I get lots of compliments on it. Soon to be ex calls it my pornographic purse. LOL! But the store I work at..... they buy the CUTEST purses. Must resist. Must. AAAAH!!!!!

    I used to splurge on Hello Kitty gadgets, DVDs, CDs, books, etc...uh...I guess it depends on the "flavor of the month."

    I used to live in a small town with great second hand stores. One bookstore in particular sold their paperbacks 10/$1! ! ! I really miss that store. Where I live now the I have to go to the next town to find a used book store.

    I like to spend my money on art supplies.

    I suck at drawing, but I'm pretty good at making lanyards, animals out of beads, cross-stitching projects, and stuff like that. And I spend a lot of money on those kinds of things.

    I had an art teacher tell me once to always "paint like a millionaire." He was right, you have to splurge and get the good paper, professional paints, and who can paint anything if your brush can't hold a point?

    Well, I splurge when I go to the supermarket. There can never be enough food in the house for me. I don't worry about that stuff much because well, you're always gonna need food right?
