Today’s Word: splurge

☆  splurge  散財する


When you splurge on something, you spend a lot of money, usually on things that you do not need. For example, you might splurge on a new handbag or pair of shoes, that you want rather than need.

However, it is OK to use this word when you are splurging on something that you don’t do very often, but that could be good for your mental and physical health. For example, a massage, or a holiday. These can seem like things you don’t “need” but if you’re tired or exhausted, splurging on a massage or holiday might be just perfect! 

What have you splurged on recently? Could you justify it or was it really something you didn’t need to buy?
