If you were given $200 that you had to spend today, and you could only spend it on things for yourself, what would you buy yourself? I would probably head to the nearest bookstore and splurge on some new bestsellers that I've been wanting to read, rather than waiting to check them out of the library.

I would split the money up three ways. First I would give about $100 to spend on clothes, and then $70 would go towards scrapbooking stuff. Then the other $30 would go to buy me a few books. So why did I only spend so little on books when I love reading so much? Because I have tons and tons of books that I haven't read yet, and I need to stop adding to my collection! Lol.

I would take the whole amount to walmart. I love to take baths so I'll start in the soap section. Then of course I love my fridge to have items in it. So I'll go right over to the cooler section. Last I'll buy myself a pack of socks. I happen to love socks as well. I could not go on a shopping spree for myself for clothing. I buy clothes every few years.

Good question. I wish someone would just give me $200 dollars. Like you, I would head right for a book store and buy things I would consider a splurge. I would try to leave $20-40 to go spend on some article of clothing. I love to buy something for myself at the start of each season.

I would hit my favorite clothing store and probably get some new shirts or something and maybe some ties but I have pretty many of those.

Jeepers, at first I was trying to find a loop hole to spend the money on bills, car repairs, christmas gifts blah blah blah. I couldn't think of anything for myself. But if I had a couple hundred just for me... It would be clothes. All clothes. I have lost 60 pounds in the last couple years but haven't bought any new clothes for myself. I go to clothing depots and stuff so all my clothes are used. It made sense during the weight lose cause things didn't fit for very long, but now I look at weight maintenance instead of lose, so some new clothes would be cool.

I'm with you. I have a HUGE list of books I want. First, I would go to my local used bookstore to get whatever ones i can cheap. And the ones I can't find at the used book store I'll go to Borders and get them! :) Included in the books I want are all the books in The Dark Tower series...except Wolves of the Calla, I have that one already =P lol.

If I were given a US$200 I will definitely go to the national bookstore and buy all the books I wanted to read and the latest Food, Good Housekeeping, Travel and Leisure, and Yes magazine. I will also look for the latest books in management (business and personal). And most especially I will complete my collection of hard bound books of Harry Potter.
