SPT - Economic Stimulus


Lelly's challenge this week? find your last receipt from the gas station (or if you are filling up over the weekend, make note of what you spend.) how'd you do? $35.00? $70.00? $100.00+?? what if you could take THAT amount and spend it on something for you?? to make it a little more challenging, let's just say that you can only buy ONE item, and the cost of that ONE item must be within $5.00 of what you spent at the pump.

I went looking for receipts for the last time I filled up the ol' burban and realized I haven't put any gas in since the 18th of April. I told you I don't get out much. I filled up for the grand total of $93.00 and I still have 1/2 of tank. I really need to get a life!

So what would I spend my money on? I would love to get one of these:

wii fit

They aren't in the store yet, but I could pre-order it for $89.00.

I realize that I should have my picture in here since it is Self Portrait Tuesday, but I didn't put make-up on this morning. I think I already have a picture on here without make-up and one is more than enough!


  1. You are ambitious! The question for me would be - ok, you bought it, are you going to use it? :)

  2. I would love to have the wii. That looks like a lot of fun!

  3. I have read about those. It looks interesting. I might actually play with our wii if I had that. Good choice!

  4. oh, that's a good idea. There was a video on youtube that was hilarious about wiifit but i think it's a good idea.

  5. I need a gym partner, come & go to the gym with me... Although I have no idea where in AZ you live, and am sure you don't want to drive forever...
    If you want email me at brenwhizatcoxdotnet
    That wii game looks fun!
    Get it for yourself for Mother's Day!

  6. Oh I have heard of the Wii fit...you should totally get it and let us all know how you like it! Your fill price was about the same as mine for the 'ol burb...but sadly, I have to fill her up again today!

  7. My hubbie saw that online and totally thinks I should get it for myself. If you do get it, let me know how good it is!

  8. Josh and I are going to get this too.
    I think he has already pre-ordered it

  9. I still laugh thinking about Wii boxing...still makes my heart hurt
    But OH WHAT FUN!!!!

  10. If you haven't seen this video, you have to. It's hilarious!


    It would be fun to buy a wii!

  11. soooo... you could totally wait to post a picture of you until you can post a picture of you being Wii Fit, right?!?
