I subscribe to only two magazines. Well actually, both Relevant magazine and Real Simple subscriptions are being paid by someone else as Christmas gifts. I love both magazines.

In each month of Real Simple you can find a section where they ask a reader to list how they would spend an extra $100. I decided to answer the call. I'm creating my list to e-mail into (there's the address should you wish to steal my glory next month.)

Part of me wants to respond in a way (as in yoga mats, chai tea, and tipping my waiter extra) so that I might have more of a chance to have my choices placed in a future Real Simple. But I've decided to respond completely truthfully.

If I had an extra $100 I would spend:

$2.00 on a Route 44 Diet Coke from Sonic
$9.00 on a book of stamps
$8.00 on a drive through car wash
$30.00 on a pedicure
$14.00 on an extra battery for my Canon Camera
Now I'm going to go use my real money to pay rent - way more fun.
How would you use the extra $100?

doesn't that only equal $88?

perhaps you could buy me a $12 gift?

Yes. It only equals $88. I had to figure in taxes and purchasing a solar powered calculator.
