Or "the things I would like to buy but I'm being frugal so I can't." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I have wanted one of these homebirth plaques since my oldest was born 9 years ago!<br><br><a href="http://www.attachmentscatalog.com/gifts/homeb.html" target="_blank">http://www.attachmentscatalog.com/gifts/homeb.html</a><br><br>
Now I want 3 of them! But everytime I have ever looked at them I have justified it away as unecessary. What do you really want (doesn't have to be tangible) that you just never seem to make fit in the budget because it seems a little frivolous or unnecessary to you?

A minivan. A big ol' Honda Odyssey minivan, with plenty of room for me to hop into the back with two kids and buckle them into their carseats, sheltered from the rain, and without leaving me feeling exposed & distracted in public parking lots.<br><br>
DH keeps saying I should just buy one, but we really can't afford it, and even if I could, I can't afford the gas. So I'm still driving my eight-year-old Honda Civic. (I love my Civic, don't get me wrong, but I would <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> the minivan!)

I have a van, but now I want to downsize to a (new) Honda Civic because my kids have their own cars now. I can't bring myself to make car payments, so I drive the van.<br><br>
I want a new driveway - ours is rutted and chipping away.<br><br>
I want someone to paint my house.<br><br>
And, for something purely "I just waaaant it!!", I want a Le Crueset dutch oven, but only because they are so pretty. I would probably be afraid to cook in it and ruin the pretty, and I have a cheapy that works just fine.

I want... new clothes and glasses or contacts for me. A dining room table and a new couch. My house remodeled and paid off (not happening soon). Eventually a hybrid car but that can wait since I'm enjoying not having a note.

New bedding for our bed--I'm trying to figure out how to copy a $1500 look on a budget, but I'd rather just blow the money. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
