Shopping ban, anyone care to join? (May shopping challenge... Are you game?) - Page 19

post #451 of 495
I confess I may have been under the influence of controlled substances when I was researching potential hotels for my party.

Although I still like the idea... I just can't find a penthouse or a proper suite that will fit everyone comfortably on my budget.

Oh, and everyone in this thread is invited if they happen to be in town on that weekend (to be announced).

I'm sure it will be a great party what ever you end up doing - shame I am in the UK

aw man I might be out there at the end of July! I'm glad you decided a cheaper route though

Mkay, so update:::
(keep in mind the unemployed/student aspect)

I have like $1000 in my savings in general. I might get $600 from my grandparents (they offer to pay a service for me or give me the cash), and I might make like $200 from eBay. Plus, I have grades coming and my parents bribe me to do well. I really, really want to go to Spain with $2200... That way, I can spend $1200 and have $1000 left for when I get back.. Geez, I hope everthing sells.

Spain is a pretty cheap place to go in Europe especially compared to London. That's more than enough money to have a good time

I just like to be prepared

I confess that I bought sfam dojo crops for $50 shipped. It was a little bit more expensive than I wanted to pay, but it's like 100 degrees out and I need some cute shorts to wear. Plus, I sold 2 pairs of jeans already. I know, I'm a horrible ban breaker, but I think they were a pretty good deal.

Has anyone bought pens off of ebay? I have this one brand that I really, really like, and I wanted to stock up! They're kind of expensive in store, like $8 for one package! Arg, I really hate the economy, it's so crummy and prices anre unbelievable nowadays.

edit: BIN for $9.99 w/best offer (wtf?) and $1 shipping... I offered $8 just to see what would happen!

Don't steal the BIN Annie! I'm watching you! 8 Black BOLD Point PILOT G2 Gel Ink Rolling Ball Pens - eBay (item 260247641068 end time Jun-10-08 12:37:58 PDT) Dunno, I just like these because my hand doesn't cramp.

Lame as it sounds, I just thought about it because I was packing my carry-on bag and I realized I was out. So, I need pens and a new moleskin and I'm all set.

Yes... well.. it was so tempting!! I think I'll only keep one of the two pairs, either the crowns or the sigs. I think I need to sell my Norway A Pockets too... They're just a smidge too small for me. And I need to sell my backup pair of Pixis... It's ridiculous to have 2 pairs of the same thing in the same wash, no?

post #472 of 495
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee. So I have this face consultation on Friday, ugh. I'm going to end up spending a lot of money on face products, I can just feel it.

But I did book a couples massage for my bf and I for a grad gift

I can relate to that - I spent £130.00 on Benefit cosmetics last week

Congratulations! I'm sure you will do plenty of shopping there

and lots of frowning... since a majority of fake stuff gets channeled through HK, Shenzen, and the gongbei market (border of macau and Zhuhai).

I personally would stay far far far away from Guangzhou, the air is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad, you think LA's smog is bad, Guangzhou makes it 100x worst.

When you are over there though, travel to Yangshuo for a weekend (it's next to Guilin), it's quite awesome out there and you stay away from the big city that Guilin is becoming. In Yangshuo, you can rent mt bike for less than $2 a day (circa 2004) and rent a kayak tour (sorta) for $15. Rooms were $5-8 (we stayed at Lisa's, which was recommended on Lonely planet).

HK is nice too, but in places, it's almost on par to the US as far as price for alcohol and food (Soho, etc...)

oops, I thought this was a thread regarding jean ban... MY BAD.
