Could you spend $5k on yourself

Let's say it has to solely be on you.  Nothing for the family.  No bills. No house or car stuff. Just pampering you. Could you do it?  Would you feel guilty?

Sure I could.

And, if those were the rules, I would not feel guilty at all.  And I'm sure DD and DH would insist I enjoy it.

I could do it.  I have some things I've needed and wanted for a long time that I put off for the sake of family.

No I could not. If we have extra money I enjoy spending it on the kids!

 I think I could do it.  Right now adding up the items I want I would only be at around $1,000.  But I would not feel guilty at all because I know all our bills are paid.
