I was thinking the other day about little splurges–you know, the small treats we give ourselves throughout the week that make life just a little bit better.
Case in point: I got back from Scranton late last Wednesday night and all I wanted to do was take a shower–but I’d left both my bath towels at my parents’ house (long story, and please don’t ask why I only have two at the moment, because I don’t have an answer for you). It was too late to go to the store, so I ended up drying myself with an IKEA blanket. Um, not the same as a towel.
So the next night, I took myself to Target and “splurged” on a super-soft Fieldcrest bath towel. At least, it was a splurge for me, since normally I would have gone for one of the cute-but-cheap towels and been on my merry way. I don’t know if it was because I was feeling so upset about losing my grandmother or on the brink of getting another cold or what, but clearly I needed something soft and fluffy in my life and that towel was it. And now every time I use it, it makes me happy.
What little splurges have you guys indulged in recently? (Or, hey, big splurges, if you’re inclined to share them.)
P.S. Splurging vs. saving.
