  • I felt like I splurged when I bought her a DS for the car...Im not one to buy big ticket items that she will outgrow. I bought her a trampoline for the backyard does that count?

  • I dont really make large purchases for my son just for the fun of it. Christmas and birthdays I usually spend $100-$150 on him. Other than that he gets small things pretty frequently. I probably spend $10-30 a month on movies, books, toys, clothes or other smaller things. If had $300 to blow on my son I'd totally do it though! lol.

  • I would splurg if my DH would not freak out. I think the most expense thing that I bought for my daughter was 350.00 on a ride on jeep. My considering it was on clearance from 500.00 I consider that a deal more than a splurge. LOL

  • I like to bargain hunt. I'd rather buy tons of stuff for my daughter, rather than one item. Honestly, splurging for me is like buying a movie when it first comes out, or going to a nicer restaurant. I guess I'm cheap.

  • I spend 500$ a kid on christmas, there 3 and 18 months. Just spent 150$ on each one for summer toys and clothes. Thats pretty much the only time we spend big money is during seasonal changes and holidays.
