Splurges

We all scrimp, save, buy generic products, and go without to save money. Are there any expensive items you choose to spend extra money on? Once every few months I treat myself to a nice body wash from The Body Shop (I use my club discount card so I save 10% and earn points to save more), and when I get new glasses this month I'm going to spend a little extra for a pair of designer frames and a breakage plan. I'm rough on my glasses so the plan is worth it, but I can justify the extra cost of the frames because they're something I'll be putting on my face every day for the next two or three years, so I had better be happy with them. (Oh, and thank you for all your tips on my financial aid /loan defualt post last week. As it turns out, I hadn't defaulted yet-- so I was able to put the loans both in forbearance, bringing them current and qualifying me for more financial aid. I was able to get enough aid to cover tuition, fees, and books for the next two semesters. Quite a relief!)
