Now, in no way do I advise splurging on every single little thing you desire. If you really want something, the best thing to do is save your pennies until you can afford it. But sometimes, some things are worth splurging on – because they’ll be with you for a very long time. Here are the top 3 things worth splurging on in life.
A better car
You don’t want to be buying a cheap car. That’s that. Why? Because cheap cars come with cheap parts. And cheap parts means more money spent doing repairs… Which may add up to the cost you would spend on a decent, reliable car anyway. When buying a car, look for one with a good reputation. And it’s also good to take along someone who knows a bit about vehicles – here’s where hubby comes in! You don’t want to get ripped off, and bringing along someone who knows their stuff will ensure you get the best deal.
The best house you can reasonably afford
If you’re lucky, sometimes you can get a really good deal on a great house. But other times, the sellers won’t budge on their price. And this is when you will have to decide whether to go for a cheaper house (that may come with a bad neighborhood, or a million repairs), or go for the home of your dreams. If you’re spending your whole life there, or at least a few years, you’ll be uncomfortable in a house that isn’t quite right for you. So get the best house you can afford.
A good mattress
It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep if you’ve got a mattress that is old, thin, lumpy or stiff. If you don’t get a good night’s sleep for a long period of time, you’re going to spend your life being one cranky mamma. Find the best mattress that you think is the most comfortable and that supports your back. You don’t have to fork out for the most expensive mattress at the furniture store. Just don’t buy a cheap mattress you know is going to make your life miserable.
