☆  indulge  気ままに~する


If you indulge in something, you allow yourself to have or do something that you know you will enjoy. When it comes to the topic of saving money, then obviously indulging in expensive things too often or without thinking is not going to help you reach your goals. However, the idea of the “splurge fund” that I talked about the other day is so that you have a set amount of money each month that you can use to indulge in whatever you want, without needing an excuse.

Last winter I got sick of getting wet feet in the rain, so I indulged in a pair of Hunter rainboots. I love them! They were much more expensive than I would ever want to pay on a pair of rainboots, but I’m glad I indulged myself and bought them. They keep me dry and I always get compliments on them, even though they are just rainboots. And, of course I bought them from my splurge fund, so no guilty feelings!

What kinds of things do you indulge in when you have the extra money?
