I’m all about talking about spending wisely here at PT Money. So I wanna know, what’s been (or what will be) your biggest splurge of the Summer months?
For instance, you might have taken an extra-special vacation this Summer. Or maybe you finally broke down and purchased the new Apple iPad 2.
I’ve had a real urge to splurge here lately. I’ve got my sights set on a classic motorcycle. It’s a 70′s Honda CB550. When it’s all said and done, after riding classes, my license, gear, and the bike, I’m looking at shelling out $3,000. I’ve never really been a motorcycle guy, but strangely the desire for this one is strong.
As you guys know, splurging isn’t inherently bad from a financial standpoint. In fact, it can be quite the efficient use of your money if the splurge brings high value to you. But it’s still fun to talk about them like they were a little diversion from your normal tight-fisted, frugal ways. So here we go, let loose in the comments about your big Summer splurge.
Three questions for you to answer:
- What did you splurge on?
- What did you give up to be able to splurge?
- Was the splurge worth it?
