Getting The Things I Want


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

For my birthday and Christmas, my mom always wants "ideas" of things I would like to have. I started keeping a list throughout the year. When I find something I would like but won't buy it for myself, I write it on the list. When the holidays come around and I still want the item, I have ideas.

    We usually do something like this for birthdays or Christmas with my dad. My dad and I are both practical people, so instead of him buying me something "frivalous" he helps me pay my vehicle insurance or like this last Christmas, helped me pay on my new washing machine.
