Opted against spending money, does that count? My hubby gets a bonus every year, and he saves most of it. But he really likes being able to buy gifts for himself, me, and the boys with some of it.
So the boys got their toys (almost anyway, the older child has to work to earn part of his). He really wanted to get me a Jawbone UP 24 (like a fitbit). I'm really into health and fitness - like to record my exercise and eating habits. Plus I sleep like crap and it has a sleep tracker.
After reading the reviews I opted against it. They don't appear to last very long, so why buy a $120 electronic gadget that lasts less than a year and does things that I can do manually? I can use google maps to figure out how far I just walked.
So anyway next week we are getting our roof replaced and getting gutters added to the house. I said "my gift will be being able to leave the front porch without getting drenched in a rainstorm!" If it ever rains.
