    A knit turtleneck dress from Macy's. It's mostly gray w/ some black & a touch of red. Macy's had a replica in a diff color scheme for $300 because the brand was BCBG. Mine was on sale for $60 & the knit was thicker.

    The newest seasons of Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives on DVD.

    I always wait till the clearance rentals go on sale at Hastings, so they were only about $15 each ;)

    I think I win for the most expensive- a house :lol: And a plethora of things to get it move in ready. Anyone have any money I can borrow?
    I don't recommend purchasing a new car and closing on a house in a 7 week span :eek:

    Candy for our Halloween party. About $55 worth in two days. I am covering our sidebar in old Ball canning jars, filled with candy corn and m&ms, etc. It's beautiful. I have candles lit over there right now, and it's so cozy and magical. I also bought a ton of beautiful vintage decorations at a local paper boutique, which set me back about $350. But it was all princess party money made on the weekends, so it was fun and ok to blow!

    Our next major purchase will be a couch. I found one at Z Gallerie (thanks, A-Z friends!), and can't WAIT to get it in here. I hope to have enough saved by Christmas for that.

    It's awesome. I've done it for-what?-three weekends now? I think I've made about $700 so far. I spent the first two weekends' money on Halloween stuff. I have $190 from this last weekend that I'm going to get some accessories for our living room with. Then I'm getting serious about saving for our new couch. I picked out this one, and I want to get a matching chair.

    I ordered a very pretty sweater from Avon, a beautiful "bubble bowl" from our local jewelers and I gave it to my friend for kitty sitting, birthday present for our grandson's little friend(and he wanted one like it,) baby shower gift, two birthday gifts for friends I work with, and groceries for a family in need. I guess we're talking about $250.00 worth.

    TeacherShelly-that's awesome! Apparently someone at my husband's office has a brother that won a 60" TV. The brother is selling it to get the money, and everyone wants it. It was the only topic at a party the other night. I told him we should totally get it and have it at our Halloween party for when they all come over, but our couch faces a window so we can't hang anything. I hope you guys are enjoying it!
