13 Things About Dane Bramage
13 Things to Buy with My Incentive Check


Well the incentive checks are coming soon. I will have $300 just burning a hole in my pocket. Here is a list of 13 things I might get with my money.

  1. A Tank of Gas Well at least a half a tank, prices being what they are.

  2. New Shoes Once upon a time, 75 pounds ago I had normal feet and bought shoes at normal shoe stores. Now my off-the -rack feet have become especially wide! I now have to order special shoes at premium prices.

  3. Ink Cartridges for my Printer With $300 I might be able to get a complete set of 3 cartridges, or two new printers!

  4. One Night in a Luxury Hotel Suite You know, the one with the jacuzzi and stocked fridge. A can of Coke is usually $2.00. Man, that's living.

  5. 900 Text Messages I don't have unlimited texting on my cell plan. If my teenage nephew get's hold of my phone again this is about what I would wind up paying. (His folks took his phone because they discovered he texted all day in school instead of doing school work.)

  6. Dinner at a Fancy Restaurant If I can spend over $100 at an Outback, I am sure I could blow a wad at a really nice place. (Not that the Outback isn't nice. I love that place.)

  7. A Decent Priced Hooker Just kidding.

  8. Half a Dozen Skanky Hookers Truly more bang for your buck but again I kid.

  9. Road Trip Anywhere. I am ready to go now!

  10. A New Digital Camera The one I want is too expensive for my incentive check.

  11. A 50" Flat Panel Plasma TV Yeah right. Maybe if I got five to ten incentive checks.

  12. Home Repairs The deck needs stained and waterproofed. The Joy of home ownership.

  13. My Prescription Meds Even with my insurance plan, I spend a bunch of money getting my meds refilled. Normally I try to stagger the purchase but hey now I can get them all at once!

What are you going to do with your incentive check? Let us know in the comments.

You are so funny! I loved both last week's and this week's thirteens. I gotta come back for more. My incentive check? To pay back the credit card to which we charged our stupid IRS PAYMENT. We owed this year! I blame my husband.

Ah, go for the hooker. Although $300 won't buy much. Why I know that? I have no idea.... (slinking away quietly)

Happy TT!

Gas is almost $4 a gallon here. It's sickening too because I have a Lincoln Navigator! My bad! :(

Nicholas said...

Most people will fill their gas tanks and then spend what's left over.

marcia said...

I am all for filling the tank and going on a rad trip bring a friend or a book on tape and you go!!!

Robin said...

I say blow it on dinner and shoes. And what the heck, throw in a handbag for me while you're at it LOL.

Awesome list

A hooker - I am still laughing about that one! We're buying ourselves a trip to Vegas with our incentive. Yahoo!

With 5 kids, ours is just about enough for the tv. But with 5 kids, I'd better just buy groceries.

The money goes right into our depleted savings account.

Denise Patrick said...

At least you're getting one. My hubby, who does our taxes, says we won't get one. We'll see. I'm hoping we will, too. I need a shopping spree right now.

Happy TT!

I'm with you on #12! I think I may just go wild and crazy and have the carpet shampooed with MY $300! Home ownership sure is glamorous, isn't it? (Thanks for visiting my TT)

I'd do 3 dinners at Outback =) Kidlet and I LOVE that place. The shrimp on the barbie...oh yum!

Melanie said...

Sounds like some great choices. I'd probably have to save it for gas for my car.

The Outback is my favorite restaurant! For me, I will be using my incentive check to make a dent in my 2 credit card bills.
