After saving for a camera 4 times, only to use the money for something that was needed, I finally bought it.
Nikon - Coolpix P500 12.1-Megapixel Digital Camera
This year, I decided that I was going to use my birthday money & savings & get it ~ with no guilt. (The guilt is still there, but it'll pass) I am so excited about it. I've been having so much fun playing around with it. I still have a lot more to learn about this new toy.
I got some free things from businesses. If you join their "club", they send you coupons through out the year & then on your birthday, free items.
I got a canvas bag from a local health food place.
From World Market, I got a $10 gift certificate & bought these beautiful earrings.
