Burning a Hole

Finally once again I have an established in flow of cash.  For the past year cash has been flowing in pretty much one direction.  This influx has caused what some call (Justin) the “Toy Phase” of getting a new job.  Already I have purchased the following:

  • GRiD Racing for Xbox360
  • Xbox Racing Wheel for Xbox360
  • iPod Classic 80gb
  • A rolling garment bag
  • A carry-on luggage piece with suitor
  • Dress Shirts
  • Ties
  • Eat out more often

Currently I am in the process of purchasing a 2009 Toyota Corolla S. (Blue Metallic)  I am on the list and in about 40 days it should arive.  This to me was a very wise decision.  While I was looking at and almost purchased this, I decided against it due to a possible house purchase and other purchases in my near future. (Plus gas is expensive and I would burn through it quick with that kind of car.)

With money still left over and not yet sacrificed to any materialistc god…these still remain in my sights:

  • iPhone 3G or HTC Touch Pro ($300-$900)
  • [Camera+lens] Canon EOS 40D (w/ 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6) ($1200)
  • [lens] Canon 50mm f/1.8 ($90)
  • [filters] ES-72U (Polarized, Neutral, UV) ($115)
  • Build a New Computer ($2000-$3000)
  • A Waterski ($600-$1500)
  • A sailboat ($3500)
  • Other ($6000-$10000)
  • Vacation ($1000-$2000)
  • Slew of games in the fall (X * $60) [Prerequisite = New Computer]

So as you can see, it never stops.  There is always something else to buy.  Most of these things I don’t need and won’t end up being purchased.  I rather like ratching my various accounts grow.  Now if only the market would turn around, things would be better.

  1. I don’t mind the first thing on that list, but all the other stuff is definately not needed. What do you want to take pictures of anyway? You don’t need a camera that nice. And you definately do not need a sail boat. And what is the other??? That is a lot of money.

  2. Other ($6000-$10000)???

  3. I bet the other 6k-10k is simply a nuptial-band savings account!

  4. Haha I read Elizabeth’s comment… I didn’t notice the sailboat when I read the post.

    But I am with her, who really needs a sailboat? It’s Minnesnowta!
