a) I'm trying to keep the acquisition of possessions down (DH keeps warning me about how we will have to downscale if we have a cross-country move for his residency), and
I think this might be classified as a "need". The handle on my old standard-issue bag broke, and I've been keeping my eye out for something chic to replace it with. I thought I found a steal the other day on a gorgeous, much-reduced leather handbag/tote featured on an ideeli sale but ultimately decided that since it wasn't made to hold a laptop that the straps would probably break.
PB Teen rug $129-$599
biOrb Aquarium $130
Rex the Betta that I received almost 2 years ago for my birthday is still living in his boring old house. Don't you think he deserves something better? (And self-cleaning?)
I did find the small one on one website for about $70 but in black. (I'm partial to the silver.) I'll keep looking.
Too much work and expense for how busy we are right now?
