Gee what do I want to buy right now? Uhmmm...If I am to be practical I would say curtains for the house or maybe a nice new big plasma TV. For myself I would love a new car. Oh...Okay...Are we talking smaller things? In that case a nice new Guess bag or there are several books I would like...

If you do decide to purchase a TV, just from personal experience and shopping around, get an LCD. they are a little more pricey but they are a better TV and the picture is incredible :)

My husband's life. Unfortunately,no amount of money is able to purchase it. Since he is a one of a kind, with no hope of replacement, he is also priceless. My sweetheart of forty-three years and husband of forty-one lies restless in a hospital bed dying by inches. The only comfort to both of us is knowing how deep our love was for each other and realizing we have children who want us to live with them. Do I want handbags, facial masks, jewelry or fancy clothing? No, all of that is so petty in comparison to losing the love of my life.

I feel really sad to see this comment... I know exactly how you feel... I have lost family members too... I would like to have them back instead of anything... Think of this way, your husband is now in the heaven, he is always shinning on you, I don't think he wants to see you upset, I hope you feel better and stay strong for yourself.

If I knew he had that joyful experience, I could rest easy. Instead he is in a hospital bed where he moans and groans in unending pain. He had a major stroke, but something else is going on which the doctors cannot find. My sweet angel is in agony and for the first time in all our years, I can do nothing to make it better. Previously, God granted me the wisdom to handle an open chest wound and before that an open groin wound, but this is beyond my hands and, sadly, beyond the doctors, too. Pray he will be relieved of the pain and sadness in which he spends every day.

I wanted to buy a house. I now live in the contract. if I have a house, I do not think money should contract each year.

There are a couple of things I would like to buy right now. They are all pretty big purchases. I would like to buy a home, a truck, and a $600 bean bag. I have wanted all three for quite some time now. The truck may have to wait. but I am really looking at purchasing a home. I live in a small town so its hard to find what I want in my price range. But im working on it.

Hi Mermaidivy, If I am not mistaken , you have change your profile picture? I can see from your list that you like make up a lot as the things you wish to buy are mostly cosmetics items. For me, I wish to have some extra pocket money this month so that I can do some shopping for myself and for my kids too. I wish to buy some new clothes for my 2 kids. And I would like to get myself some new shoes.

Hi Ivy, I need to buy at least one new handbag for every day use and another for going out with. I´m just waiting for the Sales to start here and see if I´m lucky and I´m able to buy a new one or two. The biggest Stores here have´nt reduced their prices much so I´ll have to wait a while longer I suppose. Also need new clothes but what I´m seeing in the Shops is terrible quality so again it´s playing a waiting game and see if I can find what I want. Hope I can. Could also do with a new suitcase but they have become really expensive so I´m debating that one too. One of these things will have to wait for a while longer I think.

Hi Ivy, I really love handbags and those sports bags with the designs on too. Handbags that have loads of pockets in them really don´t mind if they are not real leather. Love the handbags apart from loads of pockets and zips metal clasps. It has to be a shoulder bag though don´t care much for the handheld ones. So I´ll be searching high and low for the next few weeks to see if I get my bargain. If I´m lucky and I think I might be maybe travel a bit to see whats selling in other towns along the way. Good luck with yours.

I like good looking and good materail hangbags as long as their price is reasonable, I will buy them. No design brand name bags is essential for me :-)

Unfortunately I really NEED a new laptop (for work) and a new car (mine has 124,000 miles on it), but those things are just out of my reach financially at the moment!! I am not a big style person, nor do I care much about wrinkles on my face (hey I earned every darn one of my wrinkles honey!!!!), so don't really consider these things I even want to buy.

A vespa....or any type of electric powered scooter. I'm getting sick of the bus honestly, especially during rush hour, it's just getting silly. Buuuuut, trying to save that much is difficult, and I'm sure when I get to that goal, I'll prolly still not get it , because of those darn bills.

I really want to try those proactive anti acne treatment. I have a break out and I desperately want them under control. Proactive seems to have caught my fancy. So I do want to buy it desperately.

Is it a pill for acne? Like the Vitamin A?

Yep, I do wish to buy a DVD of a movie that Ive been wanting to see since it came out. Its an independent film so it would take a lot of time before it hits local shops. Currently, its available for rent on some stores in the US and the movie has a site where people can buy the DVD and also an official crew tshirt. I still have to scrape for savings but Ive determined to give that to myself as a gift.^_^ Boy, you sure do have a lot of stuff that you'd like to buy. Well, knowing that you love to shop, I know you'll going to have a blast searching for those items when you do finally decide to buy them
@mermaidivy (15404)

Yeah, I am just waiting for the money hehehehehehe, when I have money, I can make the decision of buying them or not easily ^_^ Let's get it for yourself, we should treat ourselves better once in a while especially you are so interested in this movie :-)

I wanna buy some shoes for hanging out! I don't know why, I just have some addicted to shoes! then I really wanna buy some clothes so I can wear various on my college,,hehe,sounds selfish, but that's what I want.. After that, I need to buy my face moisturizer, it's already run out and maybe I'll try new brand. And same with you, handbags! A big one to carry all my stuff in college Seems like the things we want not important, I mean, it's not our primary needs. Do you think we have become materialistic?
