Two quick points. First off, happiness is 1/3rd off now, at $50K per year: http://www.forbes.com/sites/learnvest/2012/04/24/the-salary-that-will-make-you-happy-hint-its-less-than-75000/ Secondly, to point #5: I have two Lego architecture sets I got for Christmas that I'm really enjoying not assembling yet. A cheap way to get your buy-now-consumer-later fix is to grab yourself an iTunes gift card, or credit with another shop where you can get a number of things for $15 (Amazon Kindle store, maybe?) The browsing knowing you can spend the money satisfies the shopping habit.

A small point: the phrase is “nip it in the bud”, as in “keep it from growing”. Normally I'd try and restrain myself from such pedantry, but “lick it in the bud” sounds like something very different!
