I don't often splurge on myself or pamper myself much. Mainly cause I just don't have the extra funds to do so--but every once in awhile a I get that what the heck attitude..for instance...when the extended version of the DVD of Chronicles of Narnia came out I was having a fit to get it...not only that but I wanted to get the special gift edition...but no money..then a few months later I did come into a few extra bucks, and I was in one of those "what the heck moods"..so got it at Amazon.com and it turned out to be a whopping $30 less there. So........my lastest thing to splurge........I pre-ordered the Harry Potter and the Deadly Gallows book--the last one in the series...and for half price of what it will be when it does come out in July 21st....he heheh So what thing did you buy to pamper or splurge on for yourself?

Actually, I do not splurge that often either. When there is any extra money, I am always spending it on someone else or something else we need for the house. But just last week, I needed some new tennis shoes. But while we were there, my partner also selected out some sandals for me to try on...knowing that I like to wear sandals during the summer. So, instead of getting just tennis shoes...I got two pairs of sandals too. :)

I pre-ordered it too :) I buy myself usually books and things like that too when I buy myself something - for just me. I can't think of anything lately though. Were my anniversary was last week I was trying to figure out what I wanted to get the hubby. And now I'm trying to get my credit card paid off so I can cut my hours at work.

Hey there! I don't splurge on myself that often either. Can't think of anything recent. But one thing I bought a few years ago was a small crystal ball that stands on a pewter (sp?) castle. I think it's beautiful. I do buy small stuff for myself often. I semi-collect witch dolls & basically anything that has to do with Halloween. But to be truthful, I usually hit Walgreens on the day after Halloween to get stuff cheap ~ also garage sales! I live on a budget & like you, I don't have the extra funds most of the time. Usually if I do splurge on something, it's not for me. It's for my son or hubby or our pets.

whenever the 15th or the 30th day of the month comes, pay day! i see to it that i would treat myself with something.. i was actually trying to save for a birthday gift for my boy friend, so i just spent a few bucks on treating myself with going out with my friends, we ate pizza and watched a movie! it's pay day again, and i would be going to my boy friends province and give him his gift.. this would be my treat for myself! :)

If I have the extra money to splurge, which isn't often since most of the time I am so broke I can't even pay attention, I use it to get my fingernails done, since they are long and need some professional care whenever I can do it.
