The word “splurge” may call to mind a large, unplanned, impulse buy, and many splurges may occur under those circumstances. But splurges can be planned, prepared for, and worked into your spending plan. Let’s look at how:
If you’ve decided that a Valentino dress needs to join your wardrobe, do loads of research on available styles, materials, colors, sizing variations, possible outlets for purchase, and return policies. Then evaluate when, how often, and with which accessories you’d wear the dress. Think carefully about how your purchase will be used. Often times, the item that sparks your initial feelings of object lust – be it a frock, handbag, piece of jewelery, or pair of shoes – may not actually work for your wardrobe, figure, or dressing needs. A splurge needn’t be an item that sucks loads of money out of your bank account, then languishes unworn. Do your research first.
