Oh yeah, I spend more. Lately I've taken to getting gift cards unless I have a specific gift in mind. That helps keep me from getting too carried away.
I also have a bad habit on spending more on presents
for myself. Last year it was a new TV and my first chipod. This year, who knows? I have a bad habit of buying anything electronic that catches my eye. I am a horrible impulse shopper when it comes to gadgets and gizmos.
