Music - I control myself but I could shop on Amazon all day for new music.
Concert tix - cut back the last couple years.
Black shoes and boots - I have soooo many but I'll be in a store and still think I need more.

Bath and Body Works...I die in that store. All the aromatherapy line. I love to relax in long baths with candles...have to have candles. So my favorite store is B&BW's.

Plants
I am now on a self imposed plant buying ban.
Though after spending 4 hours in the gardens yesterday trimming and moving a few things I realized I could use some more color so I guess I will have to "lift my ban"

Wow, were we separated at birth or something?
I buy books, too.
Karla, at least plants are cheaper here. You should have seen my plant bills in Colorado. Not a pretty sight.

your right Cil and with being able to buy wholesale helps even more
It's the mulch that is the real big part of the budget I think I may have them deliver it this time
as soon as your settled you need to come down and get some cuttings
I have plenty to share

I don't really splurge on one thing,I seem to wait until I need something and then end up buying more than I really need.If I'm running low on body spray,I may buy 5 different kinds at once.

Shoes, but I won't pay more than $40 for a pair, except running shoes. There isn't a pair of shoes in the Lands End catalog that I'm not lusting over.

I'm a Bath and Body Works devotee as well. I can't pass up a new scent, and stock up on the old stuff.

And T-shirts, the kind you can wear to work under a jacket or sweater. Gotta have one in any color imaginable.
