    ......where you spend money like a mad man?? :lol 

    Lets see, this week I took advantage of that sale at BBTS and bought some Saint Seiya Myth figures....about $350 worth. Then a couple of day later BBTS notifies me and says that my order or MP Megatron has been filled. Another $100 there. Then I had to buy new tires for my car, $600. After that I buy myself an iphone, another $500. On top of all that, this week was my best friends birthday. Spent $250 just going out causing havok. Man, my wallet is mad at me. I'm not even taking into account the couple of dates I had, food, gas, and rent I had to pay. Boy, am I glad to see the week end.

    Holy Hell. Where do you work?
    I think I spent a lot the week I picked up the Xbox360, I'll give 500.oo or so. Fearing the credit card bill this month because I needed a few other things too that I didn't expect I would need.
    But I'll be saving up some cash soon >.> wanna commission some fellow artists and get the new TF; Animated toys......I had a dream I picked up 'Bee and Arcee. I think my pride died then and there.
    :mad:  There was the 600.oo I spent on new tires back in 06. :E Only to have my car rear-ended a month later.

    I understand the sentiment, but this is kinda inappropriate for this topic. IMHO.

    I spent $98 on two lamps this week. I'll be working overtime and eating hot dogs and ramen until the next pay period.

    My wife and I are planning to buy an entertainment center to replace the 15 year old one we have now. Saw a really nice one at Target for $120. We've been saving for about 4 months now. Maybe come June we'll get it.

    I eat ramen... or hotdogs with mac and cheese even when I -have- money. I guess it's just because it was a childhood favorite when money was tight. Or mom was lazy 8D...

    I went to Costco and got free samples. I never realized they were so expensive.

    On a serious note, I only spent $40 this week. I'm pretty impressed with myself.

    Trying to save for: 1) a small/compact digital camera and 2) a 500GB USB drive. Probably will buy it in March (the camera) and the USB drive around August... maybe.

    HA! Cool. I expected more people to mention Botcon. Man, last week's spending spree has me eating mostly ramen and those stupid microwave burritos. I do have a few steaks in the freezer but I'm saving those for the weekend.
