I've recently come across an item that I really love. I've always been reluctant to spend money, and I want someone's opinion on the matter. Should I spend the money, or should I save it?
Well, if you really love the item and you have thought about it and it's not a rash decision, then why not go for it if it brings you joy. Saving is great for the future, but we still need to live a little too. If you have $40 spare and you are not struggling, go for it.
If you really like it then yes. That is, given you can afford it. If you live paycheck to paycheck it’s probably not the best choice. But if you could buy it and just eat out a little less next week? Go for it. What’s the point of working if you spend your whole life saving for nothing, never to indulge? That’s the formula for hating the way you live.
