Here's how this event works:

Below is a "hypothetical" online shopping spree that I
went on. I purchased each item from a different
online store or website. Your task? Guess the total
amount spent(excluding shipping) in US Dollars to the
nearest cent without going over. You only get one
guess and may not edit your post. You may not guess
the same amount as someone else.

Any other questions, let me know...

Here goes:
------------
My aunt in Minneapolis just had a baby, so I decided
I'd find something nice online to send to her. So off
I went on my shopping spree through cyberspace.

I came across the DVD of American Pie 2. Saw it once
but not the whole thing, so I decided to order that
for myself. From there, I was looking in household
gifts and found a 16" by 23" Cotton-loop Bath Rug for
my bathroom(I need a new one).

But what do you know? I order the DVD version of
American Pie 2 but I don't have a DVD player and I
couldn't cancel. So, I decided to order a Pioneer
DV-444 DVD Player.

Well, since I'm going back to college in the fall and
my brother has made repeated offers to buy my laptop,
maybe I decided to buy a new one: a Dell Inspirion
8200 Laptop. It looked like one that would suit me
well.

All of this electronics and computer stuff reminded me
that I wanted to buy Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth
Drannor. So my credit card got yet another charge.

But that reminds me, my best friend's girlfriend, who
also happens to be a good friend, is having a birthday
in mid-June while I'm going to be in town. So I
decided to buy her The Sims Livin' Large Expansion
Pack since she's so into that game.

And my cousin just had a birthday and I forgot to send
a card. She likes Mrs. Fields cookies, so I decided
to send her a Mrs. Fields Ultimate Smile box.
Hopefully that will get me out of trouble.

And so I decided that since I was buying gifts, each
of my siblings could use one, too...

I bought my sister an India Arie:Acoustic Soul CD, my
younger brother Madden NFL 2002 for Playstation, and
the book A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar.

And I decided that my parents deserved a token of my
appreciation--an HP PSC 950 Printer/Scanner/Copier. I
knew my dad would appreciate it.

I have a friend who has been like a sister to me for
the last few years. We talk about everything and help
each other through some tough times. Last week a long
time friend of hers died in a car accident, her
grandpa died, and her boyfriend thought they could use
some time apart. So, I decided she could use 2 dozen
long-stemmed roses. Roses are, after all, her
favorite flower.

Oh, wait...why was I shopping in the first place? Oh
yeah-my aunt. I ordered her a "Welcome Baby Basket w/
Mylar Balloon".

I wanted to keep shopping, but my credit card bill was
high enough.
------------

So there ya go. How much did I spend?
