- Books/ebooks
- clothes (usually tops)
- exercise DVDs

Those are my top 3 purchases and usually in that order.

Books. Dog Show supplies. Anything with Corgis on it...
New toys for the Salon... curling irons, scissors, products.

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!

Home improvement stuff - blinds, curtains, paint, landscape and garden upgrades, power tools and such. I've decided I'm not buying new clothes until I get my weight back down to at least 225, so until then, I'm focusing on my house and yard.

If I had the money and didn't have to worry about it the very first thing that I would buy would be replacements for mine and the kids bikes. I have been itching to get back into riding a bike but just haven't had the funds to replace my 21 year old 12 speed mountian bike LOL. I know it's old. My kids have out grown their bikes and I know that it would be great for all of us to go riding during the summer. Next, would be books. I love to read and have a passion for learning about new things. I have my degree in Criminal Justice and I want to get into forensics so my focus would be books that would help me there and my favorite author Stephen King. Last but not least would be a new mattress for my bed in hopes that my hubby would spend more time sleeping in it rather than the couch. He has a bad back and needs the extra support and our mattress most of the time doesn't give him the support he needs and I'm finding that I'm waking up in more pain and with more stiffness than I used to.

Oooh awesome question.

My favorite (and most frequent and probably costly) splurge: New foods to try--normally gluten free or some sort of veggi/fruit that is new/newish to me. Very dangerous place for me in the growing months: Farmers' Markets.

Second, only because it is seasonal, is anything food-gardening related. Almost all my exercise, and most of my produce, comes from my garden during the months I can. I might spend a heck of a lot more to grow it (especially with water costs), but it sure is tastier, and much healthier than most of the stuff in my grocery store.

Third: Books. I have an "old-book-smell" addiction, and I can spend hours perusing used book stores, sometimes buying, often not, but always enjoying. I can spend hours looking at Amazon for future ideas, as well as current free e-books to download. My husband and I both have book addictions, so we keep building bookcases (one whole wall in our house already is all shelves), so we have been paring down...just to make room for more of course!

For me, there are three things:
Art supplies
Books and
health food.

notice that "clothing" didn't place on that list. I do like clothes but am equally happy to get them from the Salvation Army as from Macy's. So I rarely spend much money on them. Books--now it is Kindle books that are a passion...Art Supplies...this category was on "hold" for quite a while, but has been making a comeback (slightly ) in the past few weeks. Even if I don't use them, I love to own and buy them.
Health food? Any kind of healthy item is fun for me to buy ...including produce. Tea. And personal care products. So I guess I cheated by giving three answers. If we went by cash value, the "healthy items" would win by a long ways.

What is your favorite shopping fetish?
(ie: what are you most likely to spend money on when shopping if you had your "druthers"??)
