I never spend money on myself, unless it's something I desperately need (i.e. groceries).
However, I couldn't pass up buying this writers' "luxury" item from Tweed's, also excerpted below. I'm hoping to blog more about "must-have" items for writers. Stay tuned. In the meantime, this really is a great deal. I paid $3 in shipping for a total of $28.
