It’s always interesting to me what people spend their money on. I love the Financial Confessions for this reason. It’s fascinating to me. There are certain things I splurge on and certain things that I think are silly to splurge on. We all have opinions on this. For the sake of argument, these are the things I don’t mind splurging on.
Things I Don’t Mind Splurging On
Manicures/Pedicures: I will always be someone who NEEDS my nails to be done. I think the only time I haven’t had my nails painted in 8 or 9 years was during the first part of Covid lockdown. My hands are in so many pictures for my blog and Instagram so I chalk this up to a necessity.
Car washes: So I don’t do this often. I have two little kids and my car more times than not looks like a box of cheerios exploded inside. But when I do get car washes I get details. We have a family-owned car wash right by our house and it’s very reasonably priced.
Quality sneakers: I wear sneakers a good 75% of the time. Between workouts, errands, and running around with my kids. So they are something I will for sure splurge on for quality purposes.
Apple Music: I think a lot of subscription services can kind of suck at times but Apple Music to me is 1000% worth! I listen to music all day and I love having access to any song I want. It comes in handy for the kids too!
Good water bottles: I will die on the hill that Stanley water bottles are superior. They are GIANT and fit in my car cup holder and those are the 2 qualities I look for! They are pricey but worth it in my opinion.
Handbags: I have always loved handbags and I have amassed a large collection. I truly think you get what you pay for and that’s what I will spend a bit more on handbags because I know I am getting quality. I have a LV Neverfull I’ve had for almost 10 years and the cost per wear at this point is pennies. It’s still in perfect condition.
Skincare/Makeup: I use 90% clean beauty so that in itself is more expensive. I am totally fine spending more money on these products knowing how they are made, what is in them, and the quality. I have also seen from experience the positive results on my own skin.
What is something you don’t mind splurging on?
A quality computer. I do all of my work on my computer, and using a sub-par one is a nightmare.
Quality sneakers are so important. I want to be in comfy shoes especially when I travel somewhere far.
These are definitely great things to have and don’t mind splurging on. Especially to pamper me when accomplishing great things.
I completely agree with having good sneakers. It’s important to have good support.
WOW, I like how we all are different. I have non of these on my list! Perfect!
Of all you’ve mentioned, we are the same with buying good quality sneakers. For the rest, I always opt for alternatives to save!
You very much understand how you spend the money. To the things that you like and make you happy, they are all good.
