My special gift is to be able to rationalize any purchase.
To wit: See this cute scarf? It's from Uncommon Goods, a fabulously quirky Web site that specializes in out-of-the-box gifts and items. It's made of T-shirts scraps and is incredibly soft (I love soft T-shirts! I love scarves!) — and it's made by disabled people.
I totally could make that purchase out of the joint checking account instead of my rapidly dwindling "special" fund. It's a charitable donation, right?
