Are there items you routinely splurge on?
For me its soaps, lotions and make up. I have very sensitive skin so I buy locally made soaps, natural lotions and bare minerals powder.
Definitely. I buy quality shoes but always look for sales. We have a frequent buyer card at the kids shoe store and that has helped out with savings for him.

DH and I get apple pies and coffee from McDonald's every friday night. Sometimes french fries too. It's not frugal but it's the only money we spend on "date nights"
