How to spend $100 without. even. trying.




How do you spend $100+ without trying? Without gratification? Without much to show for it? Without wanting to?

As it turns out, it's really fucking easy!

  • Pack of 25 blank cards and envelopes, for end of year teacher notes, 4.99
  • Fish oil supplements, required by dr, 9.59
  • Clif bar, for work tomorrow, 0.99
  • Gas, for work tomorrow and general running kids everywhere, 44.89
  • Cord for Nook, to replace broken ones because they SUCK, and because kids break them much more quickly than adults, and because they are a proprietary connector, 24.95
  • Binders, 1 per 4H project, couldn't get from thrift store because they don't have enough of the ones with the clear front pockets for cool project photos, 2.64 x 5
  • 2 packs of sheet protectors, for 4H binders, 3.67 x 2
  • 2 packs of tape, for attaching things to pages that will go into 4H binders, 0.67 x 2
  • Sprinkler, to replace the broken one, 9.88

Grand total: 117.17 (not including tax)

So...nothing for me.  Nothing fun.  No entertaining retail therapy.  No, just regular old stuff that I had to buy but didn't actually want to buy.

It sucks.

Blah!

And have I mentioned I hate summer? I do.  It was 85 degrees today, in other words HOT, so I'm surly.  It will get worse before it gets better.  Be prepared, dear readers, be prepared.
