Do you guys play the “What if you had to spend $100 RIGHT NOW?” game at your house? We play it all the time at ours. It’s almost always Rob, the sixth-grader, who wants to fantasize about shopping, and I’m happy to play that game. Today’s answers (from me, clearly, because what he wants is video games):
John Derian nest coasters (photo from Target.com). I wish these were plates instead of coasters, since I never use coasters.
Traverse Bay chocolate-covered dried cherries (photo from Amazon.com). $28 for a 4-pound box—or about $7 per pound. Not cheap, although M&Ms are up to around $4 a pound so it’s not like Godiva or anything. I lovvvvvvvvve these.
Gund Tristen the T-Rex (photo from Amazon.com). I want this for Henry, who persists in his dinosaur interest. I saw it at a toy store and it is even better than it looks in the picture: the fabric is a fine corduroy that feels so cozy and nice. There’s also a triceratops and a stegosaurus, but I like the tyrannosaurus rex best: it’s hard to find one that looks friendly instead of scary.
Jewel’s album Joy (photo from Amazon.com). This is my favorite holiday album, and my copy finally wore out. I need to replace it but I’m hoping for a pre-holidays sale. …Hey, it’s only $6-something? Wait here, I’m ordering it.
Someecards postcard book (photo from Amazon.com). I’m a leeeetle worried about how these might translate internationally if I send them for Postcrossing.
Liberty of London baby quilt (photo from Target.com). I have no use for this item! But I want it.
I’m out of money. Do you want to choose some imaginary purchases?
