Outings. If I'm going to take my daughter to the fair, amusement park, zoo, etc., I will spend money there. Sure, buying burgers and paying extra for rides and leaving with a souvenir means we don't go as often, but it makes for a more fun trip.

since i'm a student, cost always has to be considered. But i invest the most in skincare, pieces of clothing that are supposed to last and books and other material for Uni.

Toilet paper and getting my eyebrows waxed. I buy Charmin 99% of the time, my bf is okay with buying cheap toilet paper but I'm not. I also don't mind spending $20 on getting my eyebrows waxed because otherwise I get a unibrow and I haven't perfected waxing on my own yet.

I spend a lot on bras, because they need to be comfortable! I'll also spend whatever I need to in order to ensure that my husband and pets are healthy.

i spend money on the "holy trinity": skin, teeth, and feet - but i do try to get the higher-quality products on sale.

Anything to spoil my boyfriend- it doesn't matter how much it is, if it's our anniversary, Valentine's Day, or his birthday: I want to give him the best!

1. Gadgets.. (I skimp on other stuff to splurge on tech stuff. Apple products, *drool) 2. Jeans.. (so worth it. it lasts so much longer, i can wear it all the time.) 3. Better quality food (for grocery shopping, you pay just a bit more, and get fresh produce)

Getting my laundry done... I'm spoiled since moving into my new apartment in NY with laundry services.

The things I spare no expense on are items for my cats, bedding, electronics, and cosmetics. Cats because I was raised being spoiled and I can't help but spoil my child equivalents. Bedding because it makes me feel so good to slip into a lush bed adorned with fancy sheets and quality comfort. Cosmetics because in my experience, the cheaper stuff just aren't as good. Electronics because I have a professional geek boyfriend. I save a lot of money on clothes and shoes because I don't keep them more than a year and as long as they look good on me, I don't care who makes them.

Lately, it's been makeup & skincare products. :) But I'd love to splurge on a great pair of jeans or shoes, too.

So many options - I have to say that no matter what we always buy organically. Also I can't help but drop the big bucks on bras (I have to get them custom made), jeans and of course presents for my child and my hubs.

Cost is always a consideration. No luxuries here! But some things must be paid, like health & dental bills and care & house repairs.

Hmm... I don't know about Kraft. It doesn't taste good to me. I like the expensive fancy-schmancy cheeses imported from France and Switzerland. But I digress.

Jeans, shoes and brand name groceries. Guess shoes are the love of my life. they fit me better than any others. and for whatever reason, that generic cheese doesn't taste quite like Kraft..and toilet paper? There's a biiiig difference.

I'm with those who say cost is always a consideration. But I won't hesitate to take my daughter to the emergency room and pay the $75 co-pay if I'm worried about some babyhood illness she has. But would I go to the ER for myself and pay a $75 co-pay? Not unless my life depended on it! And pleast don't think I take her to the ER all the time. She's gone twice in two years. :)And I've been known to buy her a few too many dresses simply to get those precious photos. But that's really about it. I try to get bargains on everything else.

I always go over board with gifts for my s/o-let me tell you $700 GPS. Arghhhh but he loves it and it was well worth the money. I also spend quite a bit on shoes and handbags, and cosmetics. My skincare I go to my doctor and it's waaaaaaaaaaaay better than anything over the counter and still cheaper. :)
