I've been making a concerted effort to actually spend more money to do more things or get things that we want, so instead of waiting for the big tv in the family room to die before replacing with a flat screen, we opted to buy the flat screen now and enjoy it. Turned out that I got my last bonus from my previous job and a small bonus from something else which was about double what we spent on the tv, so we were able to use the bonus to actually get something unplanned for once instead of just putting it into savings.
