Splurge a Little on Yourself…
Curiously, I’ve been told by several people recently that I should “do something for myself” and asked if I’m going to be splurging on anything soon.
I do splurge (quite a bit!) already, but I guess they’re not on typical things. I buy stuff like Popsicles, oil paints, and hm…I did buy those sunglasses I was debating about recently.
Of course by far the biggest thing I splurge on — if you can call planning ahead for months a splurge — is travel. Yes, I will fly across the country to go see a play. Yes, I intend to go to Tierra del Fuego just because I like the name. (I barely even know where that is, and don’t know whether there is anything to do there, but I’ll be going there someday.) Yes, the list of places I’d like to go is enormous.
Maybe the “do something for yourself” comments are just because anyone who knows me can see that I could use some new clothes. Clothes are a typical girl splurge, so that could make sense.
There’s nothing wrong with my clothes, mind you — they’re not full of holes or anything, at least not since I met with that fashion consultant once ;). I just don’t have a whole lot of clothes, because I hate shopping for them. That would be more of an irritation than a splurge!
So what about you? Are you a fan of frequent splurges on yourself? Or bigger but more infrequent ones? What do you like to buy when you do?
