So, the major downside to being unemployed (well, maybe not the major one, but it hurts nonetheless) is that you still occasionally find things that you really desperately want to buy. I'm not going to, but I really, really want to.
Like this tactical shovel. I have no idea what I would ever need to shovel tactically for, but I could probably also use such a tool to weed and clear brush and stumps like a boss. Maybe that's how I will pitch it to my CFO / wife.
