My Shopping Spree : SSS

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 13 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 
Your “Secret Subject” is:
You have $500 gift card from Amazon. What would you buy and why?
It was submitted by:     

What would I buy with $500 from Amazon?? You know, I hardly ever look at stores or shopping sites because I rarely shop. Now at Christmas or when one of the boys has a birthday I might look around but that's about it. There are a ton of shopping sites, discounted and name brand. I'm just not a shopper. So when I saw this prompt it took some thought.
I'd love a truck, trailer and boat however I don't think I can swing that with only $500.
Clothes, yes I need some new clothes but I refuse to buy anything until I can wear what I have. Since my thyroid removal I've gained weight, which the doctor assured me would fall off. Liar!
ooh a fire stick so I can cancel my satellite! Save myself some money.
A push mower, weed eater and rake, then I could cut out the yard guy each month.
A treadmill maybe so I could walk at night after work and not get eaten my mosquitoes, which by the way if they sucked fat instead of blood I would NOT need a treadmill and this would save on a gym membership.
Hmmm I see a theme, save money! Yep, that's me, practical and frugal.
Okay, something fun, a hammock and sun shades for my back deck. Maybe a stereo so I could blast some tunes while chillin' in the shade.
New shoes, a pair of cow girl boots and a rain coat. Yes, practical but needed. Okay maybe I don't need the boots but I'd love a pair.
A gun. Yes, with my line of work sometimes I need one and have seriously considered getting myself one, but I don't think $500 would do it.
As you can tell I don't shop and have no idea of the cost of some items.
Oooo a SeaDoo, jetski! Another thing that is most likely out of the $500 range.
Ah!! A bed fan! Have you seen these? A fan that attaches to the end of the mattress and cools you off while you sleep. ooh I want one.

So...what would you buy with a gift card?

  1. Love what you did with my prompt! Good for you for not being addicted to online shopping, often we forget that it all adds up.

    I think I would save that gift card to buy my son's sandals, shoes, and jackets. I like that I can order two or three items then return the ones I don't like for free

    1. That is good. I didn't know you could return for free.

  2. The push mower would save you the yard man, the treadmill and the gym, just sayin'.
    I vote you go for the bed fan and the hammock. Practical, fun, not terribly expensive!

    1. haha I'm def. looking at the fan, for real. And I really want a hammock. Right now it's a dream, but who knows.

  3. I guess I would get Christmas finished early and use it for that! If I spend anything it's either on the grandkids/daughter or electronics

    1. I've always spent on everyone else, I tried to think of what I'd do for me. Def. would most likely spend it on the grands.

  4. I want a new slip cover for my couch. Or maybe a new couch! We are in the market for a new vehicle for my husband, though, so I feel like all the money is headed that way.

  5. I'd get a few things I needed around the house, a surprise each for the people I love most (including the dog), and definitely something for myself probably some material I've had my eye on to make a dress or skirt.
