Living on a budget can make you feel deprived if you're not making room for little splurges here and there. The stringent spending might give you a saver's high at first but it can cause a spending spree later on that undoes your hard work. Planning for things you find worthy of splurging can help keep you motivated to reach your money goals.
To name a few, I enjoy little splurges like frozen yogurt (with toppings) on a hot day, above average bottles of wine, taco Tuesdays at a local brewery, and buying quality ingredients to make a divine meal at home that costs less than it would in a restaurant (but isn't exactly an inexpensive evening in). What inexpensive splurges make you happy?
