    Ok this looks like a good enough thread to rant in.

    So I've been saving up for months and months to buy a Surface Pro, mostly to use for game development. I finally have every penny and today I go out to buy one! YAY!

    Except my fucking car breaks down on the way to Best Buy and now I can't afford it because all that money has to go into the repair of my transmission.

    I mean at the end of the day I need my car because i'm counted on to drive lots of people around but.. man...I just... ugh. I'm really damn sad now. :(

    That really sucks. At least it didn't happen after you dropped cash on the tablet.

    Yeah. Shit happens I suppose, silver lining and all that. It will be another 8 months before I can save up for another one so perhaps they will be cheaper by that time.

    If I ever find murphy, I am gonna punch him in the face.

    The most expensive purchase I made recently was £55 on a pair of shoes. Which is a lot considering I was unemployed at the time but I was so effed off with my old shoes because they were daggy as hell and falling apart. I am a bit of an anomaly as far as girls go in that I tend to only ever have one pair of shoes that I wear to death before buying new shoes. But now I have brand new etnies and oh my gosh they're so comfy, like wearing a hug on each foot. So it was ££ well spent.

    I've had this pair for four years and I had the ones before that for three (they were the exact same, but they stopped making them)

    the bottom line is that I really need a new pair of shoes

    The most money I spent in one spot was writing a $12,000 check for my wife's car. That being said, I cringe whenever I spend more than $50 on anything.

    I also just signed paperwork to buy a home for $300,000 but that's not really me spending that money so much as agreeing to pay back almost twice as much over 30 years.

    I am putting myself into nearly a half million dollars worth of debt.

    Fortunately, my lovely wife gets to wallow in it with me.

    The couple that eats ramen together, stays together (actually our mortgage is such that if one of us loses our job we can still afford food, mortgage, taxes, utilities and still have, uhh.. 200$ a month?).

    Still scary as hell!

    For the first time in about 5 years I now have a net value that isn't in the red. I could theoretically pay off the rest of my student debt today if I really wanted to. It would leave me with almost no money left, but it's just nice to know I can do it.

    Maybe I'll go out for a walk later and let my consumer impulses buy the first thing I see, like a tree, or a homeless man.

    Back in January I started taking drum lessons with @Ten. Finally putting the years of Rock Band fake drumming practice to use, I only wish I had started sooner! Hopes of owning a real kit are dashed so a month ago I got an electronic kit off craigslist so I can practice at home and not get evicted.

    Now that I'm starting to flight instruct again since the weather isn't as awful any more, I ordered a new headset so that I can connect to my phone, listen to music, and have noise canceling so I don't slowly go deaf (and also help hear the comms way better)

    Pro Tip: If you're in Canada, order expensive stuff from Alberta and not pay PST!

    The settlement for the sale of my house just went through TODAY so I'm feeling pretty good about my bank statement. Now to figure out how to make that money work for me until I need to buy property again.

    In the meantime though, I'll be doing some spending - my girlfriend and I are moving into a new house together next week so a trip to IKEA will be in order, where we'll buy a new dining table, a desk, a rug, and maybe a new bed so that we've got somewhere for guests to sleep.

    Also I just bought a new digital SLR on the weekend, a Canon t4i, which set me back just over $1000 after adding an extra lens and some accessories. Summer is finally making its way to Vancouver so I'm hoping for lots of chances to take some good photos.

    And as @bombardier mentioned we are taking drum lessons together, so once I get into our new place I will definitely be shelling out for an electronic kit of some kind.

    I don't spend a lot of money on myself that regularly so it's going to be a fun month.

    I wish I had $10,000 to spend on the new Jagged Alliance kickstarter.
