Your Biggest Splurge of the Year

If you're working hard for the money, then you better treat yourself right. Even the thriftiest spender should know that a splurge is well-deserved from time to time. So, I was happy to see that 25 percent of you chose splurge-worthy vacations as a way to reward all of your hard work throughout the year.

If travel weren't your thing, you may be among the 22 percent who splurged for a new car this year, and I have to say a new ride would definitely spice up my tired morning commute. But, not to be totally outdone, a very close third for splurge of the year, and a popular way to pamper ourselves, is spending on clothing and accessories. With 18 percent, spending on style is always a favorite, and even if you weren't shopping for your working wardrobes, still a savvy splurge.
