    Shoes, handbags, laptop bags (really sad I know but out there somewhere is the perfect laptop bag LOL) books both novels and non-fiction.


    Oh I'm with you on the laptop bag thing, bought a Kipling one ages ago, even though I didn't have (and still don't have ) a laptop. I've now sold it but in a funny way....miss it:D .

    The ideal picture or perhaps a classic painting, a farmhouse kitchen with an aga, and a table laden with (reduced) food whilst the homely but glamorous female/male/non gender specific, stands surrounded by books (cookery, thrillers etc) and bags, whilst wearing a pair of killer heels (with them jelly thingys in so nowt hurts) with make up on studies the DFW site.

    A modern classic.

    Kids clothes :rolleyes:

    I don't buy expensive ones, I shop mainly at George, TU (Sainsburys) and just occasionally I push the boat out and go to Next (usually at sale time :rotfl:), but if I see a really lovely outfit, I just can't resist it.

    And books..

    And handbags..

    And shoes..

    used to be handbags now cds...........my oh is trainers he has over 30 pairs
    i will be debt free, i will
  • my daily coffee from the shop.. i've gotten a hand me down maker from my sister, but i like it when someone else makes it for me.. it's not much daily, but it adds up throughout the month.
  • Trainers were said by God to make my life complete - I think I have about 25 pairs. Going to trainer heaven this year with a trip to the States and guaranteed I'll come back with another pair!

    And 2 for 1, 3 for 2 toiletries in Boots. I've been strict with myself recently and only bought what I've needed and tried to live off my existing 'stock' which means I haven't had a good splurge in Bots for ages. Although, £40 of Boots vouchers coming from Pigsback soon!
    Almost debt-free, but certainly even with the Banks!

    Hello everyone, I just wondered if anyone else had a certain 'ahem' weakness whereby however hard you try not to, you just haven't been able to resist having.

    Books for me!
    ...much enquiry having been made concerning a gentleman, who had quitted a company where Johnson was, and no information being obtained; at last Johnson observed, that 'he did not care to speak ill of any man behind his back, but he believed the gentleman was an attorney'.
