My Top 5 Things Worth the Splurge
My top 5 things worth the splurge.
Sometimes a bargain isn’t the best. Trying to save money can end up costing more in the long run. Especially these days when you are at home 24/7. These are the things I appreciate that we made the decision to spend money to do it right.
Here are five areas where I believe it’s better to skip the discount and spend a little more.
We used to paint the inside of the house (when we were young) and I have to say, we do excellent work. But in the last few years what became overwhelming to me was the amount of time is would take. Hiring a professional means the time on the project is not your time anymore and of course, professional painters get it done much faster than we ever could.
A short time ago we decided that we needed to revisit our estate plan. Not an easy task and so important to get it right. It had been so long since we updated anything that we knew that we needed to work with a professional. Lucky I had someone in my network. Right away we were asked questions that we would have never considered. We didn’t have to worry about a learning curve and if we had dotted all of the “I”s. It gave me piece of mind.
Speaking of getting things off your mind. Going through this pandemic has taught me the importance of a good nights sleep. That and age has me planning on shopping for a new mattress as soon as we are able. When I think about the fact that I spend 1/3 of my life lying in bed it worth the splurge.
Again, it’s kind of a quality of life thing for me. I like to cook, but if poor equipment makes it hard I’m the first one to grab my keys and head for a drive-thru. Having quality knives is a splurge, but if you take care of them they will last forever. It’s a joy to use good equipment.
Well, for me it’s walking shoes! I wish I was a runner. But again, with age I have found that it’s worth the splurge to get fitted at the store where a sale clerk can help you. It makes all the difference in making physical activity enjoyable or not when you have the correct equipment.
What do you think is worth the splurge?
