What are "lady" items or services you spend your money on that are really worth the splurge? Can be anything from beauty to style to health items -- a custom bra that fits you perfectly, a really good razor, your signature perfume, designer heels that don't wreck your feet, a pricey prescription, or even service (waxing, gel mani, laser hair removal, etc.). Please include your first name, last initial, city/state for attribution in an upcoming feature, as we can't quote you without it! Thanks so much in advance!

Hello, I"m Tina C from Phila., PA. My biggest 'self' splurge, actually I had 2, I have to get my nails done every 10-14 days, I feel so good for those 45 minutes, as I sit,close my eyes,and just relax while having my nails done. My 2nd splurge used to be buying Coach pocketbooks, you noticed I said, 'used' to be! Since my 'sweet husband' passed away, my finances have dwinkle down, so I'm not able to pay $300-600 for a purse,but by doing so in the past, I will always have a beautiful purse,because Coach last 'forever', if taken care of right! I have 3 pocketbooks that are over 15 years old!

One of my prescriptions is $1900 a month.

I have eighteen prescriptions. Getting an ugly purse is not on my to do list.

Elizabeth F. Once a month I get a deep tissue massage.  It has made a huge difference in my life, from pain management ( a lot of back problems), to feeling refreshed.  I am more active day to day now that I am not feeling constantly achy in my back.  I sleep better as well.  Completely worth it to me.

I spend on a pedicure on occasion.  Well I have difficulties bending in position to do my own nails. I only go now and then.  Not on a regular schedule.  28$ is more than I like spending on salon services for myself.  But that's the normal price all over by us.  So is why I limit how often I go.  I don't wear open toe'd shoes.  So no one sees my feet.

I have a medicine that runs me $1,700 a month...staying alive is more important than anything else right now.  Purses, nails and massages can wait.  :)   I do my nails at home, hubby gives me a massage nightly (lovely side effect of that expensive medicine is severe back pain) and I've used the same purse for 2 years.

 I spend quite a bit on healthy food, that's one area I don't go cheap on. I don't know what else I'm pretty low maintenance. Sneakers, I buy a nice pair but I wear them until they are wore out.
