$100 Question

So I was asked the question, "What would you do with an extra $100?".
I have never been one of those people that could immediately just name something when asked what you do you want for Christmas or your birthday.
When shopping with cash or gift cards I like to get the most bang for my buck.
Not a quality my husband truly enjoys about me.
I tend to buy a lot of cheaper things instead of one quality item.
I enjoy having lots of options.
Really this carries over into all aspects of my life - food, clothing, hairstyle, etc.

Ok, so back to the question at hand...

So let's start with single items first.

A John Deere Tractor for X
So in an ideal world I would get him the motorized one, but this one is right at a hundred bucks so the pedals will have to do.
The smiles I can imagine on his face would totally make this worth it :)

A quilted puffer vest
So technically this vest is just over the amount I have to spend, but look at it! I think I can find $8 to make it mine.

A new pair of boots for Mic
I can't lie, I love when Mic rocks a nice pair of Timberland boots.
These bad boys are exactly $100, and are Timbos.
If you are reading Mic, what do you think? Yes? No?

Or I could pick up a couple tickets to see my favorite team

Now let's move on to what I normally would do :)
Typically I can put together a whole outfit for $100.
And on a good day, I have money left over for lunch & a latte!
Like I said above, I like to have options.

Sweater Dress $44.94
Moto Boots $39.94

Total Spent $94.88


Plaid Scarf $16.94
Sweater $20
Leather Hobo $29.94

Total spent $93.88

Either outfit leaves me with enough money to head to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Oh, and join the Dollar Shave Club too :)
It is as low as $1 a month to have razor blades shipped right to your door!

Now I want to know...What would you do with $100?
And I don't want to hear save it, buy groceries or fill up with gas! lol!
I want to hear some fun items!

*I was inspired by Dollar Shave Club to write this post. I was not compensated in any way, nor did I need to mention the Dollar Shave Club. All opinions are my own. With that said, check'em out! They are super cheap!
