hmmm... My latest purchase are hardcover books. I am a sucker when it comes to those hardcover books; regardless of the price if there is an available copy in hardcover, I will buy it.

How long have you had the iphone? Wife is thinking about switching back later this year (blackberry 10) due to the email aspects.


I got an iPhone 4S on Feb this year... I barely use it for business because I work on a company that provides outsourced customer service to a major credit card company, so nobody is allowed to have cellphones on in the building for the cardholder's security

I do not have to wear the same suit twice in a month my friend. We can not shame PopiLopi for her handbags.

My latest substantial purchase a pair of reebok real flex shoes. I have been buying little things like groceries and stuff but that doesn't really count.

I have a thing for running/cross training shoes its crazy.

Well it isn't like I am overdoing it. I just have 40-50 different suits, for different weather/events. When a suit is custom tailored it lasts much longer than an off-the-rack solution.
