I think I may get to splurge a bit and I'd like some opinions on how I should spend my money.

So, what do you think?

Should I get a few packs of gum and a six pack of beer or do you think I'd be better off saving up and trying to get a 12 pack instead?

I might also be able to get a slightly used set of lens caps and a rocket blower (no-name brand of course).

Lastly, I might get some tin foil and a few pieces of foam board to make some reflectors, but not sure if this will help my pictures or not?

I would go to Costco and pick up one of their wonderful pumpkin pies for $5.99.

I think you should just get a 12 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon. No need to save up.

The foam board idea isn't bad though. You could have 1/5th of a light box for that kind of coin.

I was thinking 7D initially, but no, I'd go with the beer option too. A 6 pack of Kona Brewing Company Longboard Lager would be excellent.

oooh.. that sounds good. I have not tried Kona before. Probably can't get that for $6.53 though. ;-)a

(i have to set this post up like every other gear post in here so............)
will you really be satisfied with a six pack of beer??
you know your just going to end buying another six pack and another six pack and another six pack..
and your going to pay extra for each six pack..

save up and when you have enough.. buy a 24 pack then you will have all the beer you need for every circumstance..

Quality over quantity, my friend. With a little shopping around you should be able to find a 4pack of Guiness or Murphy's.

I'd stick to the real thing though, proper Guinness is much nicer than the cheaper Guiness. :)
