When I HAVE to spend a LOT of money...

I notice that when I have to spend a lot of money on major purchases ranging from a new fence to car repair (or car purchase), I have an interesting rebound effect with my finances.

I buy myself some small self-indulgence (it was a filet mignon that I had for dinner last night, yum!), and then go make a large contribution to some charity. Last night, I pledged $120 to KTEH, the local public TV station, who like a lot of folks around here, is in Dire Straits. I'm still working at the moment, and I pay almost $50 a month to the cable company just to get decent TV, so surely I can throw money at the local station who broadcasts decent stuff *for free* on the regular airwaves.
