Question What is the one thing you splurge on?

Most things I splurge on, I can somewhat justify.... One "thing" we have that I absolutely can't justify, because, with a little bit of effort, we could do his work ourselves, is our accountant for our taxes. He's an independent guy and absolutely fabulous and I love just dropping off all the paperwork and not having to deal with taxes. We had him do our taxes the year we bought a house, had to file 3 different State returns and were in over our heads. It was so nice, we decided to keep giving him our business.

What is your one major thing that you splurge on?

That's justified to me.

I cannot justify my weekly cottage pie. It's $5 and I could easily make a ginormous one (and have) for $7. I can try to justify it by saying I'm supporting small, local business, but...yeah. But I LIKE IT AND IT MAKES ME HAPPY SO THERE. Even if I have to drive halfway across town to get it when I'm at work, I'm getting my cottage pie. I do get the 9th meal free after buying 8 meals.

I also splurged on a nice collar for each of the boys. Now that they each have a nice collar, I have zero interest in buying more. So I can say it's justified because it effectively cured my collar addiction

My camera. Yeah it's not top of the line but it's way more than I need and there's absolutely no payback whatsoever. But I saved for a long time to get it and I adore it and don't regret it at all.

Agility is also purely a splurge. But I'm willing to give up other things and be very frugal in my everyday life to enable us to compete.

I don't think food counts as a splurge, since they need it to survive/thrive.

Where I get in trouble is toys & other nicnacks for the animals, like toys & chewies & whatever.

Starbucks. Every time I go anywhere I get a coffee and a cake ball.

Presents for other people (mainly my sister). I spent wwaaayyy too much on Christmas presents this year.

This Justin Bieber concert I'm going to. I am embarrassed to even say how much I've spent. I will say that the tickets were $500 ($250 each, I bought my own and my sister's) and then at least that much on a camera, custom tshirts, posters and poster supplies, etc. I'm truly crazy. But this is something very important to us that means a lot to us and we will never forget it. So it's worth it.
Don't fear tomorrow.

Dog Food. Because I could totally get it for FREE, but I have every intention of putting Frodo back on prey model raw by March. I can even do premade for FREE, but I find building my own food to be fun, lol.

Though it's not a huge splurge because I found out yesterday that I can get 120# of parts to make the whole 80/10/10 and it will cost me $225 and feed Frodo for 15 months. He eats like...nothing. And I can't imagine the puppy will eat all that much either.

Also my new splurge is locally grown organic honey. Because it tastes GOOD!
Oh, and tea.

Clothes, I have so many clothes. I have clothes in my closet from last year with the tags still on them. I usually end up giving them to my daughters if they see them and like them.
