I think I will get this and I think I will get that

  1. I'm envious. At what price point do you have to turn to your significant
    other and ask if it's OK?

    I'm in the position of having a wife who wants what I want. So, getting
    permission isn't the problem, getting the funds to get two of them (whatever
    "them" may be) is... ;-)

    If I thought you drank, I'd ask you to quit, or at least moderate.

    best bet's just to not have a significant other. then, it's all your own.

    Actually, an interesting question. Never thought about assigning a dollar
    figure to it.

    Sometimes, I just say, "This is what I'm getting." Sometimes, I give fair
    warning: "I'm going to be picking up one of these in the next few months."

    I suppose that notification is SOP for anything over $100, and my wife
    always has the final say. The fact that she's fair probably accounts for the
    fact that we've been married so long...

    Then there's negotiation. Last summer, we moved to a much larger property
    and she really really really wanted to get a dog. I told her that I really
    really really wanted the Rebel XT.

    The day she brought home the dog, I went out and bought the XT.

    Not fair. The final costs aren't known in either case.

  10. Mine is what ever is less than groceries.
