What was the last nice thing you bought for yourself? What would you like to buy yourself as soon as the economy gets better?

I haven't bought anything for myself lately since the downfall of the economy. I sure would love to buy something nice for me, but I can't, so I'm just window shopping drooling all over things right now. The last nice thing I bought was this gold rose mesh ring from Tiffany. I sure would like to buy me a nice bag as soon as we have the money :)

  • Last nice thing I bought myself was my laptop last year. The next thing I will buy myself will be next month and itll be a new washer and dryer combo I have been drooling over to make life easier. Im also buying a new TV and new livingroom furniture but that probably wont be until May.

  • the last nicest thing i bought was a bracelet and a necklace for myself, but that was on a gift card given to me.

    lately ive been going to second hand stores for clothes but honestly i love old worn clothes. The next thing if its not a problem for my family situation would be a tummy tuck.

  • I bought a new Coach bag and a fantastic white cashmere sweater that my husband forgot to get me for Christmas. Next on my list is a new camera. I need one.

  • I bought a new point and shoot camera - our old one died, and my husband doesn't like to take pictures with my DSLR. It was just over $400... but I love cameras, pictures and documenting life. I bought it the week before we had our son so we would have a camera my husband was comfortable using to get pictures of him as a newborn.

  • As for the second part of the question... eh, I really don't have a lot of wants. Maybe some new clothes once the baby weight comes off? (Hopefully it WILL come off) I would really like a gym membership at this great gym near us indoor pool, family swim hours, lots of classes - their daycare area is awesome.. basketball hoops, an indoor climbing gym.. It's just hard to justify the extra $125 a month bill for dues for the family. Meh.

  • Maternity clothes! Ha, truthfully when I found out I was expecting twins, my shopping priorities definitey changed - I now scour the Sunday ads for diaper coupons!!!
    However I'm hoping after we get our taxes or work bonus check we can get new carpeting
