What kind of things do you spend a lot on either to get a better quality product that will last longer or just because?
Shoes! As a teacher and a mom I am always on my feet. No cheap shoes for me! How about you?
Jeans. I'm a sucker for good jeans. I still don't buy them new though. I recently scored some really awesome deals at ThredUp!And Apple products. They last so much longer and are so much more reliable I find they're worth the extra money!
Well-made clothes. No Walmart stuff.
Although I do a frugal blog I do have a whole section titled Worth the Splurge because there are some things I feel important to splurge on. I tend to think items for our health like essential oils and more organic items (but we are not strictly organic eaters) are worth the splurge.
Yes! I love my essential oils!
Big fans of essential oils here
We are food too! We can't affort to buy totally organic, but I definitely make somethings a priority like our milk and chicken.
Food. coffee..lol and yes, tennis shoes.
I will not cheap out on appliances, kitchen and bath fixtures, big home improvements, things like tile that you will live with for a long time, I want quality. I splurged on my Vitamix, my electroluxes and dyson, my laptop because I depend on it for work, my camera and study. Wow it sounds like I am a splurger. lol Even on the things that are expensive I am a pro at doing my research and getting it for the lowest price.
I splurged on a BlendTech and camera too.
The hubs is the electronics splurger in our family. Except for computers — that's me. I love my Macbook!
What type of essential oils do you buy?
I love peppermint, ying ylang, lavender, sandlewood, frankencense, lemongrass, and tea tree oil
I am not totally brand specific. My favorite oils are Thieves, Lavendar and Frankincense. Also this summer found citronella worked great for mosquitos and using geranium the kids didn't get a single tick on them which mad this momma happy because one of mine had Lymes disease before.
Stress Away, Thieves, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Purification, Frankencense, Grapefruit, Lime, Cinnamon Bark, Christmas Spirit. Oh, I guess I collect oils!
I really don't know. Electronics, I guess? Also boots. I love boots. Maybe I should have put boots on the "what do you collect" post.
oh yes..we are a family of electronics! I like boots too!
Seriously, if there was a store that sold just boots and electronics I would never leave it. I'd probably get a job there. But then I'd get fired for shopping all the time.
oooh! I want to see your boot collection! I've been wanting a new pair but I am very indecisive and don't want to spend the money unless it's the perfect pair!
I actually have a plan to do a boots blog post and take pics of all my boots. If I'm going to do it I need to get on it! I've had back to back sponsored campaigns, though, so I really just want to take a break for a couple days. If I do it I will share! And then be embarrassed when I realize exactly how many pairs of boots I have...
