This is a long overdue post which I would love to get some opinions and comments on…
I’ll make it nice, short, and to the point:
The main idea is this:
Getting great deals, shopping during sales, or buying the generic version of something is all well and good…
BUT, there are certain things that you should spend your money (or splurge) on.
What are these things you ask? – Well, they could vary from person to person, but let’s get a little general and talk about criteria:
- Something you spend a lot of time in, on, or doing
- Something that directly effects your health (either body or mind)
Don’t have the money to buy the high-quality product … learn how to use credit wisely.
That being said, here are 3 examples of things you should spend your money on.
Think about it, you spend over 12 hours a day in shoes.
Maybe you switch shoes during the day, or wear different shoes on different days with different outfits… whatever, all your shoes should be top-notch.
Why? – Oh, just a couple reasons:
- Your feet are important – they support the rest of your body — bad shoes = feet problems which is 🙁
- Style, baby! – Shoes can make or break an outfit, and if you’ve heard the saying “first impression is the most important one”, you’re gonna want some nice shoes, k?
So get some nice shoes… and while you’re shopping, throw down on some…
Again, you spend 2/3 of your day in clothes (unless you do porn or live in a nudist colony).
Similar to shoes, style is important, if you want to make a good impression.
Believe me, I do my best to detach and “not care” about what other people think of me… but when it comes to business or trying to find a mate (yeah, I just said that) – you gotta look good… am I right or what?
Plus, I find that when you dress nice, you feel better about yourself and want to perform better.
For instance, when I work in my pajamas (it’s happened several times), I’m definitely not as productive or sharp as when I’m dressed, well, sharp!
Dress good, feel good… trust me.
I’ll even go shopping with my mom from time to time (great way to spend time with your mom btw)… she has great taste and knows how to make me look good.
Cool, so you’re clothed 2/3 of the day, and the 1/3 you’re sleeping, on a…
This one might lends itself to criteria #2 (health) more so than #1 –
Have you ever heard about people “waking up on the wrong side of the bed” or having “neck pains” from sleeping wrong?
Yeah, you don’t want that.
Get a nice bed.
You spend a third of your time sleeping, might as well do it comfortably, right?
Plus, it’s bad for your back otherwise.
And don’t act like putting sheets on the bed is hard, because it’s not, ok? 🙂
Other Things To Spurge On
Following the 2 criteria above, you could argue to spend your money on several different things…
If you’re a body builder: buy organic foods and high class protein… not the cheap stuff. Of course, you should always look at the nutrition facts.
If you’re an outside sales person, you probably drive a lot — get a nice, quality, reliable car.
If you’re a model: buy top-notch make up — you don’t want the cheap stuff ruining that pretty face.
Alright, you get the point… What do you spend your money on?
