A pair of really expensive sunglasses. I want them, but I just can't spend my money on that. Not now -_-

Well, I've had lots of big things I've saved up for.  For example, we got siding, windows, doors and a roof awhile back.  It took awhile.

Recently, I budgeted very carefully to get a Goal Zero solar inverter.  It should arrive on my birthday!

Thank you!!!! I hadn't seen the dust issue. :)
I was wondering if we'd want to upgrade to a second panel. If the weather is bad, we may want the faster recharge.

Lol ! The saying "Make hay while the sunshines," just popped in my head.

An RV. It is on the waitlist. The plan is to get out and start seeing the country. The plan was to do that when my husband retired, but we got stuck with his mother's house and it needed some major updating. So once we pay that off we'll get the RV.

And now that  have read Happy's post, a solar inverter too.

I would REALLY like to have a new Mustang skid steer for maintaining my driveway and other chores around the house. But I don't want another payment. I guess as long as my old 940 keeps plugging away and doing the job I'm content.

It's a machine you can put different attachments on such as bucket, forks, post hole digger. It makes the work easier unless I am on it all day long, then I still get a sore back. LOL

I'm at the point in my life where I really have all I have ever wanted.  I would like to do more traveling though.  I think going to Hawaii is something both my husband and I are seriously considering now.

If you go, October is their slow month and you can get better deals and sights aren't as crowded. And by slow I mean 1/3 of their hotel rooms are empty so it isn't like there is no one there.

A new car. For about the last five years, I've been saying I'm going to buy a new car. I haven't yet because I don't want to go in debt to get one. As long as my 2003 keeps running, I'll drive it as long as I can.

A battery operated pepper mill.

I love pepper on egg, bacon  and cheese sandwiches as well as fresh corn.

And while I have a pepper mill, it is impossible to rotate corn or hold a sandwich together and simultaneously operate the manual style mill.

(Because no matter how much I put on at first, it's never enough.)

There was an original GLP for sale in a pawn shop in Cambridge last week - it was very "well used". They wanted £3500 for it.
