I got the idea for this post from Liz and then when Christina did her version I basically knew I had to join in on the fun!! I like to think of myself as quite the saver with only a few things I will always splurge on!! Below are the categories and feel free to join in on the fun!
1// A cocktail dress to wear to a wedding
2. A glass of wine at a restaurant
3// A hotel room
4// A haircut
5// Wild card...you name it!
1// SAVE! I think this post pretty much sums up my thoughts on saving for a cocktail dress! I have so many great dresses that are from TJ Maxx and Marshalls!! These are always my go-to's for weddings and even though I think I'll stray and splurge on a cocktail dress, I just remember that I have about 10 in my closet that are worthy of being worn!
2// SAVE!!I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, so for that reason I always save and get the second cheapest glass of wine on the menu...why not the first cheapest? Well I figure the second one has to be slightly better!
Relax is my favorite brand of Riesling so I always stock up when we go to Wegmans!
3// SAVE / SPLURGE!! I personally like to stay in nicer hotels when we're on vacation, but I'll research and do my homework on getting the best price! We stayed a two really great hotels for our trip this summer and I was able to find both through deal sites!
4//SPLURGE!! And by splurge I mean find a Groupon or Gilt City deal for a great salon!! I get my haircut only a few times a year and since I don't color it I feel like I can splurge on getting a great cut with a little gloss added into the service. When I say splurge I mean no more than $50!!
5// My wild card is purses and this will always be a splurge for me!! I have a few designer bags in my closet and the use I get out of them far outweighs the cost of them. I wear my Neverfull LV bag every day to work and have for the last 4 years...that right there is return on investment! I'd much rather spend more on a purse than on clothes and shoes...it's just my thing!
I'd love to know where you like to save and what's worth the splurge for you!
P.S. Happy Veteran's Day to all the men and women who have served our country and continue to serve to protect our well being!!
