When you splurge on something for yourself, what is it?”

  • I like to splurge on a Mocha and bagel every friday morning, along with double-cheeseburger and fries for lunch, and pizza for dinner, since this is my "bad" food day of the week.

    But for something special once a month it depends. It can be a beautiful silk scarf, a cashmere sweater, some music CD's, or a massage ($30-60).

  • I agree with Leslie...I am all about a pedicure. Gives me a chance to relax, NOT WORK or concentrate on anything but how good it feels and how great my toes will look afterwards! I live in Florida and we wear flip flops all year long, so you have to take care of your feet!

  • I splurge on others alot but when i finally buy something for myself, it is usually software, a day at the spa or a new outfit.

  • My jeans. I adore my dark wash jeans from White House Black Market.... they fit perfectly. They don't come cheap, but how can we put a price on a pair of well loved jeans? I also have a tendency to buy shoes. Sometimes they are inexpensive... other times they are not. But, they always fit and are good for a perk up when I'm feeling down!
