I have $750 to spend. What would you buy?

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
So I'm getting a bonus at work next week for hiring my friend. I could spend the $750 on my credit card bills but I've decided to buy some more cake decorating stuff instead. icon_smile.gif I will be buying an Agbay (FINALLY), some petit four molds, some veiners, more colors, and of course more cake pans. Any other ideas???

I'd probably be practical and spend half on the things you mentioned, then put the other half toward the credit card bills. That interest can really add up!

Sorry I'm no fun though icon_biggrin.gif

But of course, if you pay down your credit cards and then find something you can't live without later on, you can always charge it.

Well my credit cards are up around $20,000 so $750 wont really put a dent in them....lol I very rarely get a little extra money to go and spend like this so I'm taking this opportunity to get something for myself...I'm a single mom and rarely get to spend money like this on myself.... I deserve this one! icon_smile.gif

Yeah, I'd probably pay bills too, however....take this opportunity to buy sturdy practical things if you intend to stick with this. Such as:

Magic Line square pans
Agbay...check! icon_biggrin.gif
Good cutters

Sugarshack DVDs...

lots of other stuff, I could go and on!

Just thinking about that kind of debt makes my tummy hurt! Sometimes between my credit cards and my medical bills it's hard to sleep at night...all together mine is only about $6600, and $5000 of that is the medical bills.

Anyhow...what kind of petit four molds are you getting?

And I would get the sets of Jem cutters if I were going to splurge...at least one set of flowers and then the set of leaves...I've wanted that leaf set for a long time.

I'm not worried about the debt. I have a really great job as a Project Manager and the debt will eventually be paid off. Worrying about it won't make it go away.... icon_smile.gif

I'm getting the Tiffany Box Petit Fours molds by Kathy something....I found them on ebay. I'm doing a corset cake for my best friend's breat cake benefit on October 4th and I wanted to do a bunch of petit fours with breast cancer ribbons on them as well. I've tried petit fours before and they flopped so I can't wait to use the molds!

Personally, i'm pretty practical and would use the money towards the debt, maybe one thing for myself as a treat the rest would be for bills.


I recently came into some extra money and while i did spend $100 on myself the rest went for bills.

Every one of the tappit letter cutters ever made. Lower case, upper case, you name it.

I'd go for the tappits and the SugarShack DVDs and an Agbay.

What can I say. You have such a casual attitude about a Twenty Thousand Dollar Debt.

So many people have lost their great jobs lately that I don't think anyone can absolutely count on having their job tomorrow, or next week when you get your bonus.

We all need to treat ourselves now and then, or life would be too harsh, but blowing a wad of extra money, in your circumstances, is disheartening to hear.

I have the petitfour kit by kathy something, waist of money.
I agree with all, lowering your credit is the best way to go, agabay and the rest to pay the card, if yo ask me.

I hate to be a bummer but I have to say that I have learned the hard way from being in a debt situation when I was younger that I now live by.....don't spend any money that you don't have to spend on more things. It may not bother you much now (and that is good to not be stressed about it) but in the back of your mind, it still hangs over your head somewhere until it is paid off.

Anyway, I love my airbrush for decorating and my edible image printer!! Those are my two favorite tools. Oh, and the sugar shack dvd's that are coming in the mail!!
