Tips: Splurge

Occasionally you just need a splurge.  This doesn't have to be something that breaks the bank and it doesn't have to be something you feel guilty over.  It could be as simple as buying that three dollar tub of ice cream or a nice steak.  It could even be something thats on clearance that you still really like.  Outside of the grocery it could mean treating yourself to a meal out.  Using websites like Yelp, Groupon, or Living Social you can get the food you are after at splurge friendly prices.

When you are living on a shoestring or trying to save money it can be easy to push aside the things you really like in favor of the extremely practical.  Part of the goal of this blog is to show that you can merge those two worlds with a bit of ingenuity.  Its all about mixing things up just enough that you never get bored.  It may not be the traditional definition of a splurge, but having your food stay interesting is almost as good.  Even if you don't spend a lot of money use what you buy in an interesting way to make it feel special or new.
