I’m linking up with Andrea today to talk about the things that I save & splurge on! This was a fun topic to put together so let’s just get right into it!
I spend maybe $10-$15 (or less) on my workout clothes only because they don’t last very long. The majority of my workouts are HIT/bootcamp type workouts so my clothes are normally drenched in sweat by the time I’m finished. Almost all of my shorts are from Old Navy. It seems like they are always on sale, sometimes for as cheap as $7 or $8! Some of my favorite tank tops are the basic racerback ones from Forever 21 which are around $5 (whenever they are in stock– I’m not seeing any right now but I know they bring them back every so often!). Gordmans is another awesome place for workout clothes & I’ve gotten quite a few tops there. If you’re not familiar with Gordmans, it’s similar to a TJ Maxx. I’m not sure how many states they have stores in!
This one could also fit under the splurge category as you have to pay the membership costs + it’s almost impossible to leave there without dropping at least $100. I’m putting it under save as we stock up on our most used items there, like paper products, meats, cheese, laundry stuff, etc. For example, we have had our membership since February 2015 and have only had to buy toilet paper three times! The only reason I remember this is because we had awful storage when we were living in our apartment & I remember cramming it into our one little closet (and always having to move it whenever I needed to get something out of there). So, the upfront costs balance out over time & we’re not buying those things as often as we were before!
I’m not a techie. Like at all. I don’t really care to have the latest phone or TV. I would probably still have my iPhone 4S if we hadn’t decided to join the same phone plan. I still have the iPhone 6 & plan to keep it until it dies because a.) it’s paid off and b.) it’s not broken so there is no need to replace it.
I love having decorations but I hate spending the money on them! I buy a lot of things from Dollar Tree, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, & Walmart. If it’s more than $10 or I don’t have a coupon, I’m probably not going to buy it.
Only within the past year did we start buying more supplements, specially the Jym brand. They aren’t exactly cheap compared to some that you see on the shelves at Target or Walmart but they are much better in terms of ingredients.
I’ve had some pretty awful haircuts over the past several years & have learned that you get what you pay for. I’m sure it’s not true in all cases but I have yet to go to a cheaper salon & come out with a really awesome hair cut. When I’ve gone to the more expensive ones, I’ve been more pleased with my hair.
Alright, so now I’m feeling really cheap as I couldn’t think of anything else that I splurge on. Tell me about you!
