If I had $1,000 to spend on whatever.........

and couldn't save it, pay a bill or invest; but just buy something (thinking of doing this is real life)...here's what I would do:

1. A new, bigger bed. We currently have a full size and sometimes our small son crashes with us. It can and does get tight sometimes. Bjs sells Queen Serta Pillow Top Mattress for $350 (w/coupon).

2. An awesome vacuum cleaner. Something powerful, quiet and cute! We have ALOT of carpet. $200

3. A bookcase for the living room. We sold our baby items so we now have the space for this. $100

4. A Pots and Pans set. Stainless steel, well made and will last for years. $300

5. Silk floor plant. I love, LOVE silk plants/flowers........whatever, you name it, I love it. They have some awesome ones in Michaels, Jo-Anns and HomeGoods!! $50

There it is; $1,000 for 5 things I would purchase now. I am pretty happy with this list and probably wouldnt change a thing. If, by chance, I came under budget, I would use the rest to go out for a nice dinner with my husband!!

What would you buy???

I'd probably buy a ton of non-perishable food items which would end up saving me money down the road! But that's probably not the kind of answer you're looking for (too much like simply saving the money), so if I couldn't do that, I'd spend it on an industrial cotton candy machine. I've always wanted one!

my cousin is a chef and he took me somewhere in town to get my stainless steel cookware. It is super heavy duty, always cleans up well and was made in America. And best of all I was able to make my own set and pick the pieces I would get the most out of.

I will ask him where it was
