Goofy Girl Needs Your Advice!

I have $1000 to spend! One thousand buckaroos. One "K".

Since Christmas, birthday and anniversary fall within the same month for me (as well as year-end work bonus), I have accumulated one thousand lovely Georges to spend.

What's my damn problem?, you might ask. Well, quite frankly, I don't know how to spend it.

Please don't say clothes! (see previous posts on clothes-shopping stress). And I already belong to a gym that I seldom attend, so none of that. I don't want nor need an iPod. Loving husband's company GAVE them to all the employees as a year-end bonus. Bastards! I also don't need anything that will take up much room in my house, as I am smothering in all the toys, games and clothes that my son got for Christmas. MMMM....MMMM.... That's the sound of me smothering.

And...I like EXPERIENCES. Not STUFF. Something new to do...or see...or experience would be ideal.

Any great ideas out there? Please chime in! If I use your idea, you will be forever shrined in honor on the Goofy Girl blog (or at least I'll mention it in a post).

How about the "experience" of "seeing" a big TV? Or a DVR/TiVo? The DVR is not "stuff", it is a gadget that will revolutionize your TV-viewing and allow you more time to "experience" life and less time to "see" commercials. Then, you could "experience" a vacation with that Bonus, knowing that the DVR is catching all your favorite shows. hee, hee.....

Well, Im not sure what you should spend the money on but I know you don't need to waste it on a Photo iPod....because they're free.

If I had a $1000 to spend on myself, I would take a nice solo trip somewhere - no husband, no child. A week away would be oh, so sweet... Oh, if only I had $1000...

Treat yourself and do a weekend spa retreat and get all the services

Treat yourself to a nice trip. It's the only thing to do. Go to an online ticket service (cheaptickets.com or expedia.com etc.) and BE SPONTANEOUS -- look for tickets they're "giving away". Sometimes you'll see roundtrips to London, Brazil, etc., for crazy low prices. How about a last minute bargain ticket vacation to Cancun or something similar? That's what I'd do.
