Are there items you routinely splurge on?

Massage. I used to be a CMT, I love a well-done massage. I also splurge on my hair. I've been burned, literally and figuratively, too many times by cheap hair jobs.

I buy quality shoes, skin care, and haircuts. I don't like to skimp on who does my hair. Other than that its all up for grabs. As far as the skincare and shoes go I shop for sales alot before I buy.

I don't splurge, but there are things that I won't go cheap on:  dog food, feed and farrier care for my horses, computers (although I can get some pretty good deals thanks to my DS).

 Shoes is one big one for me but I do use loyalty cards so I can have some savings. My razor cartridges I pay $16.00 for a pack of 3 however I always make sure to either go to Walgreens or CVS when they have rrs or ecbs along with them so I can have extra savings. Probally the biggest thing I splurge on is my cellphone with all the features. Phone I didn't because it was free thanks to the new one coming out but other then that I try to be as frugal as possible.
