    Hmmm. Expensive purses, fitness magazines (it's so much more enjoyable to read them than to actually work out), books for the kids, books for me, iTunes, and shoes.

    I eat my chocolate before it achieves stash status.


    "Stash status"... try saying it 3 times fast :)

    Kitchen gadgets- I love them. When the dietitian told us we had to measure Matt's food I said (sadly this is not a joke), "Yea! I get new measuring cups." :rolleyes:

    Almost got coffee on the keyboard.. That's a great response. :D

    We were using an old fashioned scale (you know, where you put weights on one side and food on the other, until they banance out) until I got D. We finally got an electric scale! :p

    Books, books, books and more books. :p I love the smell of old books and the smell of new books. I always wanted to be a librarian when I was a kid, still kind of want to be one, but like this mom gig so much better :D

    Love it!

    Before T1D, our downfall was eating out. We rarely cooked at home. We didn't eat a ton of fast food or anything like that - it was more like Outback, Kobe, etc. Since T1D, we've been eating at home more and actually saving money - which then goes to his medical supplies. :)

    Plants and gardening stuff. For me a garden is not a cheaper alternative, I spend way more than I save!:D
