Manicures and pedicures

I think you should have asked "How many quilty pleasuress do you splurge on?" For me, it is ice cream every night, a healthy (which at my house means large) serving, and I don't want to leave out coffee. Then, it's . . . well, let's just say I don't think you have the time.
I splurge on the special coffee drinks at places like Starbucks and Caribou Coffee....yum!
Ah, where do I begin?? LOL. I splurge on spike heels, dressy spikey boots, clothes, yarn, crochet books and patterns (just to start the list) but since I am a retired widow, I splurge when they are on sale. And I don't do badly either. My motto is to get the most I can for the least amount of money. And have fun doing it.
Books. But to me books are a staple, like food.
I'll drop $4.00 on a caramel latte, but I only buy things at Goodwill that are 75% off. I spend about $10 a month on supplies (silk wraps and acrylic gel) to apply to my nails so they stay long. But it takes me about 2 - 3 hours a week total to do them. Time I should be reading or crafting or doing housework.
I splurge on coffee (for home) as that is the fuel to run my home (and Love) Then it is DARK chocolate: for cookies, snacking, hot cocoa, you name it.
When I DO have extra money leftover, I will scour clearance racks at any store. But they have to be at least 50-75% off. Or the quarter racks at thrift stores. Lately it is hard to get in there, because I have to travel 20 minutes for the good ones with two kids under 5.
Hi I splurge on special food and toys for my animals. I love to order little gifts to arrive in the mail. Its such fun to see them looking for a surprise. Nothing is too good for them however I draw the line on clothing them.
I splurge on buying good detergent, softener and dish soap. Also craft supplies! In that order. I can't stand not having clean and nice smelling clothes and clean dishes! No way, talk about obsessive/compulsive disorder! And with my crafts, everybody knows just stand back out of my way!
