That's a tough question, but I suppose the things I can remember must be the best purchases, no?
-Nexus 4, purchased in January, loved to death into November, at which point I purchased...
-Galaxy S3, because I needed a better camera and wasn't feeling shelling out the cash for an S4
-Lace-up boots - vintage style, more than combat style. PROBABLY my top favorite purchase of 2013. I like pieces that you don't see a million people wearing when you walk down the street... though I have plenty of those, too.
I'm pretty sure I'll buy them in other colors, after the Christmas season. THESE boots, since I know you were all dying to see.
-A lot of music... I don't remember what came out this year and what came out last year, but Mumford & Sons, Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters & Men, Lecrae, KB, some soundtracks, Josh Garrels.... and lots more
-Also bought a leather jacket I wear constantly... and some gorgeous scarves. My favorite came from World Market, and is something between sage green and aqua blue
-My list is too long, so I'll be done now.
@Mary... must see the boots!! got a pic?
