My most recent splurges have been a Tiffany bracelet and a LV crossbody. I don’t consider my car one because it’s a necessity. I guess we kinda splurge on travel but it’s important to us. We are doing a European cruise in May with stops in France, Mallorca, and Italy 🙂

My dress was a HUGE splurge but I a) could afford it and b) was in love with it from the minute I saw it online! Here I am in the sample:

Recently booked my first cruise with my fiance and family! My sister tried to convince me that an inside stateroom was fine, but I decided to treat me and my fiance and got us a private balcony room! I have a feeling those mornings sipping coffee on the balcony and watching the sunrise will be worth it. 🙂

I’d say my car is my biggest splurge, a Porsche Macan.

My biggest splurges happened right after I divorced my ex a number of years ago.
First was an impulsive trip to the phillipeans where I got my dive tickets. Second was my car, a 2016 mazda CX-3. Spent basically all my savings in the span of a month. Hah!

how do you like it? My DH and I are considering ordering the GTS later this year.
Going along with the car thing my splurge was a brand new BMW M car I just picked up last month. I also have a few birkin bags.

I absolutely LOVE it. I have the “S”, when it was in for service they gave me the ‘regular’ and it was noticeably slower, i did NOT like it, so i would definitely not get one unless its an “S” or turbo. I had a 911 for a while and although super fun, it wasnt practical. That hydraulic clutch is a pain in traffic, and I have a big dog and he didnt really fit.
I love my car so much, I smile every single time i get in it, it is the best thing I ever bought myself.

Zero shame: my piano. I wouldn’t call it a spur-of-the-moment thing, but I paid cash, all in one go, and I haven’t regretted a thing since 😀 I play it all the time! Worth every penny!

I’m buying granite countertops this week. I’m excited but choosing is turning out to be very stressful!

We got a 100 minute couple massage while on our anniversary trip. It wasn’t cheap, but it was really worth it.

I wouldn’t really call any of these items splurges, because we have the money and are fine financially, but here is what we’ve spent most on:
– Deep tissue couples massage every 4-6 weeks (roughly $200 a month, or $2000-3000 a year)
– Used part of our tax retugn to buy DH a $1200 guitar, only bummer is it is custom order an isn’t delivered until May! So hard to wait for something that is already paid for.
– I spent maybe $300-400 at Macy’s two weeks ago but that was mainly for work clothes
– I wouldn’t call our cars splurges because they are necessary, bought my Hyundai in 2011 and paid it off in 2015 and my husband has a BMW but it is on a lease since we both work close to home, don’t need high mileage
We consider the massages a necessity too, so I guess the only “real” splurge so far this year was his guitar. But I am in grad school and he has picked up major slack at home with housework so it is sort of a thank you gift for supporting me being in school and working so hard.
