I am not afraid to spend a little money, I am a firm believer of “you get what you pay for,” however, I’m not a pushover either. There are certain products I buy in certain stores, for example I won’t buy toothpaste or deodorant in the grocery store…common sense, right? Same product, more money…this to me is a no brainer, and the main reason I will never stop going to Wal-Mart and I why I love me some Dollar General (don’t judge me!).
I am not a couponer but I love to save a buck or 2, and I have no problem taking advantage of a discount, in the same sense, I’m not afraid to pay a little more for something I think is worth it.
Food, shoes and bags are probably my biggest splurges, just ask my husband, he’ll tell ya!
- A good steak, amazing Italian Food or a delicious pastry, take my money. Mediocre food in a “passing fad” restaurant…getouttahere. You may fool me once, but I will not be back, but if you have delicious food, a great atmosphere and wonderful servers consider me a regular … even if the entrees are a tad pricey and I can get a bottle of wine for what they charge for a glass!
- I love shoes, it used to be about the LOOK, but now, honestly, it’s about comfort. If they’re cute AND comfortable…SOLD! <——Not gonna lie, though, that’s hard to find!
- I love big bags, I cannot lie! I’m not a hoarder or anything, but I have more pocketbooks than I need.
I also am not afraid to buy something that “speaks” to me. Yes, that has happened. You know what I’m talking about…you see something and you say OOOOHHHHHHH MYYYYYY, your heart pounds, and you get a big smile on your face…you look at the price and go back and forth and convince yourself you don’t NEED it. You can’t stop thinking about it! You have the PERFECT spot for it (or you rearrange your entire house in your head to MAKE the perfect spot for it.) Every now and then you need to SPLURGE, you need to get something special for yourself JUST BECAUSE. I have several of these splurges in my home, and I have yet to regret one of them. Life is short buy the _____________! (Insert your “thing” here!)
I happen to know a fun little place where you can spend the day looking for your “splurge,” and since it’s only open once a month, you have plenty of time to save so you don’t feel too guilty 🙂 If you’ve ever been to Seaglass you know not everything will be a splurge, because there are plenty of bargains…but, if you see something you have to have, GO FOR IT!
We hope to see you June 17th & 18th!
