Right now I am struggling to balance my spending between practical and *want*. There are a lot of things I want, but they're just not practical to buy, like first-season sets of all my TV shows. I mean, yeah, I play DVDs while I'm working, but I don't think the IRS would let that count.
But Amazon is having a sale. A huge one... stuff I've had on my wish list for a year is 68% off!
But... I had an idea. Branching out this year to make accessories for Prom-goers. That means a lot of pearls, beads, and materials. Fabric. *Inventory* And I can't trade in DVDs for that. Plus I had that beading software I had my eye on. Everything on my purchase plans is a fixed amount, everything except the things I *want* that are on sale. Either I delay my plans, or buy the DVDs after the sale is over.
Arg. Being a grown-up sucks.
