    Get What You Want: continued...

    9) A tropical vacation that doesn't cost a fortune
    Break out your beach bag. Paradise can come cheap-and you don't even have to plan months in advance. Bookmark these websites: lets you book up to three hours prior to your flight (five hours for international). By selling off packages that would otherwise go unbooked, the site can save you up to 70 percent! is also procrastinator-friendly. You can even hold packages for 24 hours before purchasing, which is handy when you're not quite sure if your best friend prefers window or aisle.

    If your dates are flexible, sign up at for their “Top 20” weekly e-mail to learn about new deals as they become available.

    10) An on-call tech guy for your home
    Tired of tussling with tech support? Meet the Geek Squad. This 24-hour computer-support task force comes to your doorstep for a flat fee (varies with service) and rescues you from e-purgatory: whether it's a crashed computer ($99) or an iPod that just won't connect ($49). Geek Squad also offers computer help via the telephone, at stand-alone stores and at Geek Squad stations inside Best Buy stores. Hey, even the FBI (yep, that's right) has relied on these guys for tech support. Need we say more?

    11) A never-fail-you lipstick
    Who wants to wade through the thousands of colors at the cosmetics counter? You need lipstick that looks great and you need it now. According to Ramy Gafni, New York City-based makeup artist, a berry shade with golden flecks works on everyone. What makes this hue so wearable? "It combines the same undertones found in every woman's natural lip color-blue, pink, and yellow," says Gafni. Get it: Ramy 2Lips Kiss and Tell, $21, or Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Rosy Glow, $10.

    12) The satisfaction of helping others (without becoming a UN Ambassador)
    Have an itch to do some good? Go to, type in your zip code, and choose a social issue that interests you. The site will match you up with a local organization dedicated to the same cause you are.
