I think it's pretty easy to find HWT materials on eBay, isn't it? I saw someone selling the whole package on the TP not long ago too. Maybe if you post an ISO, someone will come up with what you need.
We're still doing well (we're Compacting in spirit at the moment
). I did break down and buy DH an iPod for his combined birthday/Christmas gift (split with his mom, too), but I knew I'd probably be buying new for the holidays. My family's not big on gifts at all, but in DH's family, we buy for his mom and niece, and there's no way used would go over. I'm OK with it, I just wish their spending standards weren't so high! I originally thought the iPod would be over $300, and his mom was like, "Well, that's OK, we're splitting it!" Um, yeah, I wasn't planning on spending over $150 for his birthday alone! But anyway, I found it for $225, and from me at least, it will be for BOTH holidays
I think I may have to buy some shirts for myself too. I need longer tops because I'm so long waisted (and need to cover the mama belly!), and I've been looking and looking, and trying to make do with what I have. But I saw a picture of myself that my DD took the other day, and let me tell you, what I have is NOT flattering. I feel so much better about myself when I'm dressed nicely, so I think I need to make a small investment in some Eddie Bauer Tall fitted tops.
Otherwise, I am very impressed with us these last few weeks.
I've actually stopped myself from making a bunch of purchases lately, even stuff that's technically "allowed" under the Compact. And our CC bill is the lowest it's been in a year! I was looking at it online this morning and thinking it was low, but we still had half the billing cycle to go. But it actually ends in two days
