        A make up mirror where both sides light up without having to wait 10 minute for the left side to light.

          Well, I want a new computer with Windows Vista operating system.

          Not going to happen in my case, either. Early adopters of Microsoft products don't fare well.

            I wouldn't until at least SP1 comes out in the summer.

                These days I have no struggles with wanting to buy something.

                  A new car at the moment mine seems to be on the last leg. I am half tempted to buy brand new. But I am 30 yrs old & never had a car loan in my life I am scared to buy new but would love something brand new just one time!!!

                    1. House
                    2a. 42" LCD TV
                    2b. 22"+ LCD Computer Monitor & a very fast computer (one that does not freeze up)

                    That felt good! Just saying (or typing) it made me feel a little better.

                        only organic food, I love organic food but it is so expensive. DH and I used to be Trader Joes/New Horizons/Whole Foods people all the way but now it just doesn't fit in the budget. We try to buy organic but cannot shop solely at those stores.

                          Interesting thread.

                          For me, I struggle with several things. Since we've pretty much gone cold turkey with spending, I'm having a hard time right now.

                          We used to go out to dinner, A LOT. I don't particularly like cooking and dinner out was just so easy (and expensive). We've been doing well and are sticking to our once a week dinners out.

                          I'm also wanting to buy some clothes and shoes. We are going on vacation in June so inevitably there will be some spending in this category and some of it will likely be on credit, but not much.

                          My other want: a Palm Pilot. I'm bidding on one on Ebay right now although I'm not sure that I'll win.

                            what am i struggling to not buy? everything!

                            my struggles aren't really with my own spending, but with DH's impulses. right now it's a TV. there's one on sale, a good brand good TV yadda yadda yadda. and yes, ours is on it's last leg, and yes, just the part to fix ours is half the price of the new TV. thing is, we just don't have the money saved.

                            my suggestion to DH: sell the canoe we don't want, put that money w/ our 'vacation' money and POOF, we can have a TV.

                            DH's suggestion to me: buy the TV now using the money we have saved for homeowner's insurance and 'pay ourselves back' when the canoe sells. um, but what if the canoe doesn't sell????

                            grrrrrrr.....

                              I am currently struggling to not buy anything that is not really necessary. I really hope to pay off our last remaining credit card balance by the end of the year. We've been so close to it before, but then we relaxed too much and it got out of hand again in addition to unexpected expenses coming up.

                              A few months ago, we were seriously considering looking for a house or land. It was very difficult to accept that we are not ready for that financially yet. We just have to keep working on getting everything in order, and hopefully we can get into a house in a few years.
