Although saving money is vital, many people realize there’s a fine line between saving and spending to improve your life.
Here are 12 things we’ll gladly spend money on!
Vacation in Style
Teenagers and early twenty-somethings may not mind uncomfortable hostels, long layovers, and skipping the biggest cultural icons of a city, but as we grow older, we learn what’s really important when traveling. We’ll spend extra money to get it.
Movers are expensive, but they’re worth every penny. Why stress about finding a friend with a pickup truck and figuring out how to Tetris your stuff through the door when you can pay someone to do all that?
I used to book the cheapest flights imaginable that would have me city-hopping three times before arriving at my destination. Now, I book direct whenever possible.
Honeycrisps, pink ladies, and snapdragons blow those cheap red delicious apples out of the water. We’ll spend way more on tasty apples.
Weekly Coffee Treat
Coffee shop coffee is often derided as one of the worst financial mistakes you can make, but most people realize splurging on a coffee treat once or twice a week won’t break the bank.
Yeah, it’s $100 a month, but it also provides a safe place to work out, access to several machines and free weights, and numerous workout classes to help you get in shape.
A good night’s sleep is essential to health and well-being. After spending years sleeping poorly, many people splurge on the perfect mattress, pillows, and blankets to help them enjoy a blissful night.
Pets are members of the family, and they deserve the best. We have no problem buying fancy dog foods, getting regular vet care, and showering them with all the presents they deserve.
You don’t understand the allure of fancy teas until you try them, but you’ll be hooked once you do.
Skin Care Items
People think we’re nuts for spending $20 on a jar of night cream, but it’s a small price to pay to keep our skin looking healthy.
You never know which tour will be the last. Book your ticket to see your favorite performer when you have the chance.
Why spend a fortune buying and replacing fast fashion when you can spend more money up front to get quality items?
It’s okay to spend money on stuff that saves you time. Many people splurge on housecleaners, freeing them to focus on more important things.
Doing Stuff with Friends
Life is for living, and if we don’t spend time with friends now, we may not have the chance later. We’d rather pay a little to go to a game, concert, or outing with a friend than miss the opportunity to engage with essential people in our lives.
