Things I Want But Won’t Ever Buy For Myself:

According to my husband, everything!  Apparently from paper clips and cheese to restaurant meals.  If you’re buying me paper clips, I only use the smooth large ones, except that I already have two boxes.  Favorite cheese is sharp cheddar.    Oh, I need reams of paper – I’m waiting for those office supply stores to have a special where you turn in toner in exchange for free paper, so I’m down to about 30 sheets!
