I'm Asking: What's the Best Thing You've Bought This Month?

I'm Asking: What's the Best Thing You've Bought This Month?

There's just one week left until Black Friday, the day most major retail and electronic stores slip into official holiday mode and host big sales. I plan on keeping my Black Friday budget pretty tight (that is if I spend anything), and considering the fact that most of us aren't sure the economy is getting better, I suspect most of you are planning the same.

That being said, 'tis the season of shopping, and spending a little on everyday purchases can actually help you save up for the big stuff. What's the best — or smartest — thing you've purchased so far this month?

I haven't bought anything for myself (well besides the regular boring necessities) but I did get some great deals on Christmas gifts! I really love the fact that Amazon, Walmart, and Target are all battling for the lowest Pre-Sale prices on books, movies, and video games! It means more presents for the same amount of money!

A new bag and a neat Mango dress. I probably should have gotten only one out of the two, but I decided I deserved a break-up cheer-up.

I had a jacket stolen from a New Year's party two years ago and have been searching high and low for a similar replacement. Stumbled upon one the other day that fit me like a glove, plus it was 40% off! I have a special occasion jacket once again. :)

A heated dog bed for my arthritic pooch. It wasn't super-cheap, but I got a good deal on it and now she won't have to sleep on the cold floor anymore. In the winter, she sometimes gets so sore that she can't walk up the stairs, poor thing.

I haven't bought anything fun this month — unless you count a nine-pack of kitty flea treatments "fun." ;)
