Well, I just bought myself a 1999 Jeep Cherokee to use in the snow/offroad, so it's kind of a present. Got a good price on it. It has a few nuisance issues, but nothing major. At least so far. So for me, I need to replenish that small portion of my savings, pay off my computer that I bought on my Discover card at 0%, and go back to the frugal me.

Active Cards:
Chase Freedom 10+10 Visa Signature ($9k Limit - 8/2012)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($10k Limit - 2/2013)
Chase Ink Plus ($7k Limit - 2/2013)
Discover IT ($9.5k Limit - 10/2012)
AMEX Zync (No Pre-set Limit - 1/2010)
AMEX Blue Cash Everyday ($20k Limit - 1/2013 - Backdate to 1/2010)

Hmmmm, I'd really like a cute wallet that can hold A LOT of card slots. I HATE double stacking cards (whether its credit/debit, gift cards, stamp cards, or business cards). I also collect blu-ray, so I'd like a few blu-ray titles as well. Other than that, I'm very thankful for the things I already have. :)

I'll probably buy myself a new Macbook after the next update, which will probably be after xmas. That's something I need for work, though. My friends and I generally exchange bottles of wine and small "in honor of" contributions to charities. The only things I want that I don't already have are completely unrealistic anyway: mansion, yacht, Bentley, etc.

I know it's kind of ridiculous, but I want a Rolex Submariner so, so bad. I've wanted one since I was a kid and saw Sean Connery wearing one in a James Bond film. (Goldfinger, I think) I just can't justify spending $8500 for it. The local Rolex dealer will finance 12 months no interest, and it's tempting, but it just seems like so much money to put into a watch.There's nothing else I really want, and there's also no one that's going to give me that for Christmas, so I don't know. Maybe another pair of Ray-Ban Aviators in another color, or the gf could buy me dinner for a change :) What about you Rory?

My new skis should arrive in time for the holidays. They'll need bindings. I need some new liners for my boots, too.
