because undies on the floor are just tacky

You know what I want for Xmas this year? A dark brown wicker (real or faux) laundry hamper for my bedroom. It seems so stupid, and it's only $30 at Walmart, but it's exactly the kind of thing I won't buy myself. Because it is purely a luxury. It'll look nice, but a laundry basket, or cardboard box, or laundry pile on the floor will work just as well.  I'd like a dark brown wicker hamper, but I don't need one. And thirty bucks for a glorified laundry basket is a lot to pay for something you can't even justify for yourself. But I'd like to have it, and if it goes on sale I may buy it. But, man, would it be cool if my family bought it for me.

When do I cut my losses.

I bought a hammock and stand online, on a sale site, for $150. That's a good buy for a hammock and the stand. But then when it came, it was just the hammock. No stand.  And of course the order confirmation is long gone. So then I was on a different sale site and found a hammock stand for $60.  So I swallowed my miserly nature and bought it. Ryan spend half an hour in the back yard putting it together and then when she was finished she climbed in for a nice rest. And her ass hit the ground. So now I have over $200 sunk into this thing and I think I need a hammock pad for it, too. Is it even worth it anymore?
