I never win contests or raffles anymore... I think I used up all my luck when I was a kid because I used to win everything. I even won "Nick-or-Treat" one year from Nickelodeon, top that! So when I was 16 & paid $20 for a raffle ticket to win a car... & didn't win... I was completely shocked. Ever since my luck seems to have run out.
UNTIL NOW! I won something! And not just anything, I won something really good. A $50 gift card from AlyGatr's Everywhere's Blog-o-Versary giveaway! Alyssa's one of my favorites, plus I was having a very difficult week, so I don't think anyone else in the world could have been as excited as me when I got the email. Thanks, Alyssa!
Now the tough part... what do I spend my $50 on? I don't think I've ever been in this situation where I have a certain amount of dollars to just spend on whatever, usually my buying is need/want-based & the dollars have to be factored in... I'm out of my element! So I'm trying to be practical (aka not buy anymore shoes) but I could really use some help. What do you think I should get?
Option #1 -
A mini sewing machine! I don't sew yet, but I'd like to. I often think "If I had a sewing machine I would (insert project here)" But would I really follow through? Maybe!
Option #2 -
What kind of grown-ass-woman doesn't own spices? Seriously? (one that's never had a wedding registry, that's who!)
Option #3 -
I could be hostess with the mostess? French press & teapot with infuser... I could make fresh grounds & use loose leaf teas! How's that for classy?
Option #4 -
I needed more frames anyway...
Option #5 -
Something for my "temple", rather than just my home. Plus I always have to borrow a mat at my yoga class.
See, give me $50 to spend & I mentally spend $250. I just can't decide! Help!
