As much as saving money is important, it's also good to remember that we earn money specifically so that we can use it. And one good use of money is to occasionally splurge on ourselves.
For me and J, our splurges tend to be very modest or rather enormous--either a hunk of brie at Trader Joe's, or a big vacation to Seattle. We don't do middlin' splurges.
This is problematic because I currently have $200 birthday check burning a hole in my pocket. It's enough to buy me brie every week for several months, but not nearly enough to vacation on. And because I tend to either go large or small with my splurges, I'm really stymied as to what I should spend it on.
So I was wondering what The Dollar Stretcher community considers a good splurge. I'd love to hear from you all. Not only might this give me some ideas, but I also find it interesting to know what constitutes money well spent for other people.
Here's hoping I'll have figured it out before my next birthday rolls around.
