More kilts! 
8th-Mar-2006 12:14 am
Back in December, when I got my first kilt, I figured I should start saving up for more if I decided they were practical, and not just a fetish item. It turns out they're *fantastically* wearable, so when I started planning the trip to the desert, I moved up my purchase timeline. I took a little trip to the store today (it's just up the road from where I work, after all) figuring I'd order a tan Survival (which I'd saved up for) because they take 6-8 weeks, and I leave in 7.5. It turns out, they had one in stock in my size! w00t! Then, it turns out they also had a black Original in stock, and I sorta put that one on my credit card.

The guy in the store (hi, Justin!) goaded me into wearing the black one to work, so I did. By that time, though, most people had gone home, so hardly anyone saw it. I did get one appreciative "Hey!" from a coworker, and a deliberately snarky "nice dress!" from a coworker I'm friends with. I have yet to come up with a work-safe response to that one.

So, now I have 3 kilts, which should hold me for a while. My next one will be a Leather one, which according to my wantlist spreadsheet, I'll be getting in... September 2007. Hrm; I may want to see if I can move that up a bit.

Pictures soon!

you have a want list spreadsheet!!

Absolutely! It's a huge list of all the stuff I want, and I try to keep it about half practical/household (like bookshelves, storage cabinets, kitchen stuff) and half entertainment (vacations, kilts, toys). It's all organized by priority (1-5), cost, and time-sensitivity (e.g. my flight home for christmas won't be booked 'till september, so even though it's priority 1, it's far down the list). Whenever there's something else I want, I give it a priority, and it goes on the list.

I have a line item in my monthly budget for my wantlist, so through the magic of math, I can see exactly what I'm getting each month. Right now, there's about $13,000(!) on it, which is a number of years worth of budgeted money.

It's also a great reference whenever I wonder where my money went. Since I implemented this system (about a year ago), I haven't done that much, which is a bonus. I always have a few purchases that I haven't made yet, and can easily see what I'm getting next month. It works for me!
